50+52 Ritson Road getting fixed, may no longer be one of worst roads in Ontario

Ritson Road in Oshawa being repaired

Every year there is a list of the top 20 roads in Ontario Canada in a list prepared by CAA (which is the Canadian equivalent of AAA in the States.

Ritson Road in my city of Oshawa is being torn up and re paved as I write this. Ritson has always been a problem in the area the road is very much traveled but very much filled with pot holes and cracks that made a lot of the mechanics in the area very happy and very rich having to replace suspension parts in our vehicals.

The construction is being done in stages and working in one or two block areas, trying all the while to keep access to the area business open.

It is a hassle yes but we must all suffer with some inconvenience in order to get some nice roads to drive in and hopefully take the city of Oshawa off of the top 20 list in the future.

This was the list in 2010
