Ontarians have once against voted Burlington Street East to be one of the worst roads in Ontario. Although the mostly-maligned Hamilton roadway is scheduled to receive major overhaul over the next few years, it was voted to be the fifth worst road in the province by voters at the Canadian Automobile Association website. Burlington Street has had several appearances on the annual worst roads list in the past as well, since it was placed second last year and third two years ago.

The government already plans to spend millions of dollars in upgrades and repairs on Burlington Street. Road replacement has been started on the stretch between Ottawa Street and Kenilworth Avenue, whereas road replacement is also scheduled for the Birch Avenue to Gage Avenue North section, and resurfacing from Kenilworth to Strathearne Avenue. The 2014 survey report shows includes eight roads from the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area and more than 2,000 different roads across the province were nominated.
