Timmins Mayor Steve Black is encouraging residents to vote for Algonquin in the Worst Roads in Ontario contest.

Black says although he wouldn’t normally, the condition of the road and the lack of funding from the province to fix it isn’t giving many other options.

In the meantime, city council has awarded AECOM a contract to do a preliminary design study on the road. It will look at the complete project, which could cost upwards of $70M.
