KEN GIGLIOTTI / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS archives St. James Street was voted the province�s worst road in CAA Manitoba�s Worst Roads campaign.

CAA Manitoba analyzed the data by road, community and municipality. A report was circulated to more than 100 municipalities earlier this week.

While the results are not scientific, CAA Manitoba's public and government affairs manager, Liz Peters, said in a news release the results are important to keep the ongoing infrastructure condition and funding discussion top of mind for everyone -- especially government.
