REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., September 16th, 1937.
Hon F. M. MacPherson,
Minister of Public Works, Victoria, B.C.
SIR,—I have the honour to submit the following report on the work and activities of the
Department of Public Works during the fiscal year 1936-37:—
GENERAL OUTLINE OF WORK.
Following the extensive programme of highway surfacing and improvement effected
during the previous year, a survey of existing main highways was undertaken and a selection
was made of those portions which, it was considered, were most in need of improvement or
reconstruction, prior to bituminous surfacing, as a continuation of the plan under which it
is hoped eventually to surface all main travelled routes. The stage had now been reached
where improvement or reconstruction, prior to surfacing, assumed more importance than
actual surfacing, having regard to the policy of this Department to defer surfacing until
the road-bed has been brought to standard in width, gradient, and alignment.
CLOSING OF DEPARTMENT OF NATIONAL DEFENCE CAMPS.
During the month of June, the Department of National Defence closed down the camps
which, for three years, had been operated by that Department for the relief of single homeless
men on highway-work, and it was therefore possible to arrange the year's work on a normal
basis, either by contract or by day-labour, under the direct control of officials of this Department. After some six years' experience of carrying out work purely as a relief measure,
though considerable progress was made, naturally from the point of view of " getting results,"
this method is not so satisfactory as the normal way of letting the work by contract or by
using day-labour experienced in highway-construction.
DOMINION-PROVINCIAL WORKS AGREEMENTS.
While the situation as to employment had improved to a considerable extent, the necessity
of further public works for the stimulation of employment and industry was fully recognized,
and, accordingly, agreements were entered into with the Dominion Government under the
Dominion " Unemployment Relief and Assistance Act, 1936," providing for contributions from
the Federal Government towards the cost of undertaking construction and improvement work
on certain scheduled projects, expenditures to the extent of $2,150,000 being provided for, of
which the Dominion Government's share was $1,150,000, being 50 per cent, of ordinary road
projects and 66% per cent, of mining-road projects.
The agreement dated July 9th, 1936, provided for the expenditure of not more than one
and one-half million dollars, on a 50-50 basis, for construction and improvement of main
highways, sixteen different projects in all, and for the expenditure of $450,000 on mining roads
and trails " for the purpose of assisting in the provision of ways or aids to transportation
into mining areas." Actual expenditures during the fiscal year were $1,432,633 and $361,845
respectively.
An agreement dated June 27th, 1936, was made with the Dominion Government whereby
the latter assumed one-half of the cost of construction, improvement, and hard-surfacing
the road from Kingsgate to Radium during a period of three years, in order to encourage and
stimulate tourist traffic from the western section of the U.S.A. through British Columbia to
the National Parks of Banff, Yoho, and Kootenay. An expenditure of $200,000 was provided
for during the year 1936 under this agreement. X 4 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1936-37.
A condition of the foregoing agreements was that at least 50 per cent, of those employed
should be selected from persons in receipt of relief at date of agreement or from other needy
persons in the district, and that fair wages should be paid; the maximum number of hours
of work per day and per week was stipulated.
During the fiscal year, under these agreements, an average of 1,713 persons per month
over a period of over eight months received employment, of whom more than 50 per cent, were
" relief recipients," and a total of 215,034 man-days' employment was afforded. During
October 3,573 men were so employed. A statement of the various works carried out is given,
showing project numbers and the progress made on each job. By arrangement with the
Dominion Government, it was made possible for works which were not completed by March
31st, 1937, to be continued thereafter during the fiscal year 1937-38, under a new agreement.
It is gratifying to report that the scheme was most successful and a great deal of valuable
improvement was accomplished.
RELIEF OF SINGLE HOMELESS MEN.
A large number of single men migrate to the Pacific Coast each winter to take advantage
of the comparatively mild climate; many of these men are in want and it was necessary to
provide for their subsistence. Accordingly, an agreement, dated November 16th, 1936, was
entered into by the Department of Labour for an equal division by the Dominion Government
and the Province of the cost of certain highway-construction projects under the direction of
this Department, the personnel employed on these works to be single homeless unemployed
men over the age of 16 years. Under this scheme 3,359 men were given relief on highway
projects; up to May 31st, 1937, a total of 111,287 man-days' relief were given for an
expenditure of $465,537.35, which, of course, includes the necessary materials and other
expenses, and of which sum $302,890 was expended during the fiscal year 1936-37. The men
received $2.40 per day for an eight-hour day, less 75 cents for board; deductions were made
at the rate of $4 per week until each man had accumulated a sufficient sum for his maintenance when unemployed, after which he was discharged and thereafter received his credits
at the rate of $4 per week. The task of sending out the weekly cheques was formidable, but
was successfully accomplished under arrangements made by the Accounting Branch of this
Department.    The following highway projects were included in the latter scheme:—
Project. Location.
S. 104 West Coast Road (Otter Point Camp).
S. 203, S. 226, S.227 Lougheed Highway (Dewdney District).
S. 208 Trans-Canada Highway—Jones Hill revision (Chilliwack District).
S. 329 Spences Bridge-Merritt Road (Clapperton Camp).
S. 338 Lytton-Lillooet Road (Lytton Camp).
S. 901, S. 902 Sechelt-Pender Harbour Road.
S. 903 Squamish-Britannia Road (Shannon Bay).
S. 200 Essondale—clearing grounds around Mental Hospital.
S. 221 Allco  Camp—clearing grounds and erecting hospital
for relief cases.
HIGHWAY-CONSTRUCTION.
Progress was made on the Hope-Princeton route by extending the pilot-road as far as
Allison Pass.    The Prince Rupert Highway was extended easterly to Taylor Lake a distance
of 1.02 miles, there remaining 1 mile to construct in order to open this highway to Prudhomme
Lake.
SURFACING.
A total of 61 miles of new bituminous surfacing was undertaken, including nearly 16
miles on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway and over 13 miles on Deroche-Agassiz
section of the Lougheed Highway, the latter completing the surfacing of this road for the
entire distance of 65 miles between Vancouver and Agassiz Flats. The general surfacing
programme was less extensive than during the previous year on account of the necessity of
concentrating on preparation for surfacing by improvement, construction of diversions,
realignment, and improving the drainage, the latter receiving special attention. , /" f

CONTRACTS.
Accompanying this report is a list of tenders received and contracts awarded. The
number of jobs advertised was high, even when compared with the years prior to the economic
depression. Although the individual amounts of each job were, on the average, small, the
total of accepted tenders for highway-work amounted to $1,314,700, contracts being awarded
to thirteen different firms. It may be mentioned here that, in all cases, highway contracts
were let on a unit-price basis, the " amount of tender " being based on estimated quantities
and that the actual amount paid (based on units of work performed) would in no case be
the same amount as the " amount of tender " referred to.

Accompanying this report is a tabulation showing major highway projects in progress
or undertaken during the year, including mining-road projects, and the progress made,
arranged by electoral districts. For further details, reference may be made to the district
reports.
MAINTENANCE OF ROADS, BRIDGES, FERRIES.
Total expenditure from what is termed " District Vote " for the maintenance and minor
betterment of roads, bridges, and ferries, including maintenance of paved highways, amounted
to $1,774,848 (exclusive of bituminous surfacing), as compared with $1,339,025 during the
previous year. As in past years, work of maintenance and minor betterment was also done
by men in return for direct relief, where this could be organized on an economical basis,
77 per cent, of the total expenditures being " worked out " in this way.
FLOODS.
During the last week of May and the first week of June, 1936, extensive floods occurred
in the Skeena District, resulting in some losses, which have been made good. Details are
given in the report for Engineering District No. 7.
The Fraser River freshet was the highest since 1894; this is dealt with in reports for
Engineering Districts Nos. 2 and 3 and in the report of the Bridge Engineer.
SNOW-REMOVAL!
Generally speaking, snowfall was heavy and in some districts snow-removal was continuous over a long period. Taking the Province as a whole, 7,955 miles of roads were kept
open by snow-ploughing, involving a total of 86,430 snow-plough miles at an average cost of
$23.46 per mile kept open, of which $14.13 was for operation, wages, and supplies. The
average cost per " snow-plough mile " was $2.16, being the average cost of ploughing 1 mile
of road once. During the previous year, 6,787 miles of road were ploughed at an average
cost of $15.40 per mile kept open and $2.40 per " snow-plough mile."
Experiments were made in the use of snow-fences, generally with good results.
HIGHWAY SIGNS.
The standard for warning-signs was revised during the year; accompanying this report
is a facsimile of the drawing showing the designs adopted which, generally, is in keeping with
the practice of the Western Provinces of Canada and the American Standards Association,
with some modifications to suit the needs and means of the Province. X 6
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1936-37.
A policy was adopted of gradual replacement of existing signs by signs of the new type
during a period of three or four years, prior attention to be given to hard-surfaced portions
of trunk and main highways, and it was further decided to adopt the use of metal signs in
place of wood, the latter being insufficiently durable. Towards the end of the year an order
was placed for 3,700 metal signs for delivery in the early summer of the fiscal year 1937-38.
ROAD MILEAGE.
Elsewhere in this report will be found the usual statement of mileage and type of construction of Provincial highways. The total of 20,171 miles shows an increase of 147 miles
over the previous year; this increase is not necessarily all due to new construction. District
officials periodically revise their road registers and adjustments are necessary from time to
time, as, for instance, when a trail is converted into a road. It will be noted that the Provincial highway system includes 517 miles of municipal highways, classified as arterial,
primary, or secondary.
The total mileage may be classified as follows:— Miles.
Trunk and main highways     6,087
Local roads      5,458
Settlement, industrial, and mining roads      8,626
Total..
20,171
In addition, there are 10,041 miles of trails on the registers, of which 5,567 miles are
classed as mining-trails.
MINING-ROADS.
Work under this heading was more extensive than usual, largely on account of the special
agreement with the Dominion Government, referred to previously, providing for the improvement of transportation facilities to mining areas. Total expenditures were $361,845 under
the Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement and $37,694 from Vote 119, " Aids to Mining
Roads and Trails."
BRIDGES.
This subject is fully covered in the report of the Bridge Engineer and in the district
reports; a tabulation is attached showing the major work carried out in bridge construction
and reconstruction.
FERRIES.
A tabulation is attached showing the traffic carried by all the more important ferries.

There is also attached a tabulation showing traffic over the Cariboo Road (Fraser Canyon
section) during seven months of 1935 and 1936, respectively; this statement shows an increase
of 16 per cent, in 1936 traffic as compared with 1935 traffic.
MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT.
The report of the Mechanical Superintendent is attached and shows that the general
improvement in condition of machinery and equipment, referred to last year, has been maintained and that the condition of machinery is good. CLASSIFICATION  OF  HIGHWAYS   (PART  III.,  "HIGHWAY  ACT").
Attached is a statement showing all municipal highways classified as arterial, primary,
and secondary, respectively, under Part III. of the " Highway Act," as at September 30th,
1937.    The totals as at March 31st, 1937, were as follows:— Miles.
Classified as arterial  310.78
Classified as primary      58.86
Classified as secondary  147.59
Total  517.23
During the year the following changes were made: In Surrey Municipality, the new
approach-road to the traffic-bridge under construction over the Fraser River was classified
as arterial, and, in the same connection, the route of Scott Road was changed and similarly
classified, the latter to be reclassified as primary after construction of same. The main
highway through the Village of Pouce Coupe was classified as arterial. Baker Road, in
Maple Ridge Municipality, was classified as a secondary highway for a distance of 2.51 miles.
The classification as a secondary highway of " No. 19 " Road, Reference No. 70s, in Richmond
Municipality, was rescinded.
HIGHWAY TRAFFIC.
Following this report is a statement showing that a total of 7,832 carriers' licences were
issued under Part V. of the " Highway Act " during the licence-year 1936, this being the
first full year of operation since the Act was revised in 1935. During the 1935 licence-year
only 1,672 licences were issued. It was found necessary to modify the regulations under
Part V. of the Act, and this was done, the most important of the amendments being the
exemption from the Act of all vehicles operated exclusively in the Electoral Districts of Fort
George, Peace River, Omineca, Atlin, Skeena, Prince Rupert, and that portion of Mackenzie
Electoral District lying north of the 50th parallel of latitude, and the exemption of all freight-
vehicles from the necessity of having to take out insurance. Included in the amendments was
provision for issuing permits covering certain operations of an infrequent nature. Generally
speaking, the regulations, as they now stand, are satisfactory and are workable. There were
many difficulties to be overcome in the administration of this Part of the " Highway Act "
during the year;   definite progress was made, however, especially towards the end of the year.
GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS.
The report of the Chief Architect, attached hereto, outlines the activities of the Architectural Branch of the Department. It is gratifying to note that the exteriors of the public
buildings are now in more satisfactory condition.
MISCELLANEOUS.
On January 1st the Manual of Instructions for use of officials of the Department, which
had been under preparation during the previous twelve months, was duly issued. The binding
and indexing of paragraphs is of such a nature that any section can be revised without disturbing the remainder of the book, and such that every section is capable of almost unlimited
expansion as and when required, thus saving the expense of frequent reprinting. It is
believed that the publication of this Manual will greatly assist in standardizing practice
throughout the Department.
During the year the work of revising the standard specifications for " highway-construction " was undertaken and was nearing completion at the end of the year.
Correspondence comprised 48,661 inward and outward letters, being an increase of 14 per
cent, over the previous year. All accounting for unemployment relief continued to be done
by the Accounting staff of the Public Works Department.
In conclusion, it gives me great pleasure to place on record the loyalty and efficiency of
the various officials of this Department and to commend the high standard of their work.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
A. DIXON,
Chief Engineer. REPORT OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECT.
Construction.—The new Tuberculosis Wing addition to the Vancouver General Hospital
was opened by His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor on October 29th. I am pleased to report
that this unit has proved very satisfactory to the medical staff.
Schools.—The following schools were designed and the construction carried out by the
Department: North Saanich High School; additional class-rooms and auditorium for University Heights School, Vancouver; auditorium and manual-arts rooms for school at Abbotsford.
Hospitals.—Preliminary plans have been made by this Branch for an addition to the
Vancouver General Hospital. The sketch-plans for the Nurses' Home for 575 nurses have
been completed, and work is now proceeding on plans for the large 500-bed Acute Unit
joining the Maternity and Private Ward Pavilions, Shops Buildings, etc. As part of the
programme for relief of single unemployed homeless men, a small hospital unit was erected
at Allco Camp; these men also did useful work at the Mental Hospital, Essondale, on
grading, etc.
Repairs and Maintenance.—With appropriations available from Relief Funds to supplement general repair and maintenance votes, it has been possible to accomplish satisfactory
maintenance and repair work on the various public buildings, and it is now intended, as far
as possible, to concentrate on maintenance of the exterior of the buildings, for their protection.
Owing to the large number of patients in the institutions, particularly the Mental
Hospitals, and the taking-over of the Home for the Aged, the tradesmen staffs in these
institutions are taxed to the limit in order to cope with the work, and some further assistance
in some trades will therefore be needed.
I wish to take this opportunity of thanking you, the various District Engineers, our own
office and tradesmen staff for the kindly co-operation and assistance rendered to me from time
to time.
Hy. Whittaker,
Chief Architect.
REPORT OF BRIDGE ENGINEER.
I have the honour to report upon the work of the Bridge Department for the fiscal year
1936-37 as follows:—
The return of more prosperous conditions resulted in a further increase in the volume
and weight of vehicles, and particularly of heavy trucks and tractors. This increase was
widespread throughout the Province, heavy traffic occurring in some cases on roads which had
seen little traffic in years. Not only was it necessary, therefore, to carry out extensive reinforcement and repairs on main road bridges, but also on those on some of the secondary roads.
Only such structures as had become quite inadequate or unsafe for traffic were renewed.
The following major structures were rebuilt: Kamloops East Bridge at Kamloops, Barriere
River Bridge at Barriere, Copper River Slough Bridge near Copper City, and Goldstream
Bridge on the Island Highway. In addition, a number of minor bridges were renewed, more
particularly those on highway projects involving the reconstruction and improvement of
existing main roads.
Two quite important railway-grade separations involving overhead bridges were carried
out—namely, over the Canadian Pacific Railway at Haig near Hope, B.C., in the Dewdney
District, and over the Canadian National Railway near Kelowna, B.C., in the South Okanagan
District.
As has been stated in previous reports, a large measure of economy can be realized
simply by increasing the life of structures. This resolves itself into building and maintaining
them in a manner so that rot in timber and corrosion in steel are delayed and prevented.
This policy has been steadily pursued, more attention being constantly given to the factors
that promote rot and corrosion. As far as practicable, timber is being creosoted and steel is
being carefully painted and repainted as required. REPORT OF MECHANICAL SUPERINTENDENT. X 9
The principal bridge in course of construction during the year was the Fraser River
Bridge at New Westminster. The extraordinary freshet in June, 1936, and the ice conditions
in February, 1937, largely increased the hazard and delay on this very important project.
Even under normal conditions, the construction of the river piers would have presented quite
serious difficulties. By March 31st, 1937, the major problems were in course of being solved,
and at the time of writing this report (September, 1937) all the substructure-work has been
satisfactorily completed and superstructure-work well in hand. The contractors are to be
congratulated on the near completion of a very difficult project.
Several reaction ferries were due for renewal, but in view of conditions it was necessary
to repair and continue to operate them for another year. More than ordinary care had to be
taken during the 1936 freshet. Officials are to be commended for the fact that not a single
ferry was wrecked or even seriously damaged during the year.
A fair amount of river-bank protection and regulation work was carried out. The
freshet, strangely enough, passed without the usual damage resulting. In some cases channels were somewhat improved due to the streams straightening themselves out and removing
log-jams out of the main channels.
The cost of materials continued to rise and increased sharply towards the end of the
fiscal year. Trained men in and near to the larger cities and towns became scarce. It is
quite noticeable that the younger men are giving evidence of a willingness to render good
service on structural work.
It is a pleasure to record again the painstaking efforts and efficiency of the whole staff.

Bridge Engineer.
REPORT OF THE MECHANICAL SUPERINTENDENT.
INSPECTION OF EQUIPMENT AND MACHINERY.
The general improvement in the condition of equipment and machinery throughout the
Province remarked in last report, as a result of improved garage and repair-shop equipment,
more efficient organization and supervision of equipment operators in the field, and repair-
work in the shops, was, on the whole, well maintained during 1936-37. The condition of the
equipment generally is good. In districts where hard-surfacing of highways has been undertaken, such equipment as crawler-type tractors, bulldozers, and other units for maintenance
purposes will naturally become obsolete and will require to be replaced with modern
pneumatic-tired equipment for trimming shoulders, ditches, and banks. Three truck-type
snow-ploughs were purchased last winter, and although they were mounted on ordinary
dump-trucks with rear-wheel drive, they demonstrated superiority as to speed and efficiency
over tractor-mounted ploughs, except where heavy drifts were encountered.
The equipment and machinery in every district in the Province was inspected during the
fiscal year 1936-37; in all, over 2,000 separate units were inspected and reported on. The
following new units were purchased: 12 trucks, 7 autos, 1 Diesel tractor, 1 road-builder,
3 snow-ploughs, and 1 set of truck-scales. In addition, much useful equipment was added in
garages and repair-shops. An inventory of road machinery and plant, together with statement of valuation of plant, tools, and supplies, are attached.
EQUIPMENT-SHEDS AND REPAIR-SHOPS.
Sheds used for storing equipment at Enderby were totally destroyed by fire in January,
1937. The repair-shop at Prince George was completed and fairly well equipped in the fall
of 1936;  with this exception, there is no change in the situation since last report.
POWER-FERRIES.
The undernoted power-ferries were inspected and reported on: Kelowna-Westbank,
Francois Lake, 12-Mile, Sorrento-Scotch Creek, Agassiz, Rosedale, Castlegar, 24-Mile,
Shuswap Lake, Nelson, Ladner-Woodward, Harrop-Longbeach, Taylor Flats, Kootenay Lake,
Needles-Fauquier, and Creston. X 10
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1936-37.
All ferries operated subject to the provisions of the " Canada Shipping Act " have been
inspected and certified by the Dominion Steamship Inspector, and in every case overhauls
and repairs to hulls and machinery were effected with the least possible interruption to
schedule and the convenience of the travelling public.
A new scow was built for the Nelson Ferry and launched in November, 1936; the machinery from the old ferry was transferred and installed in the new scow, which was put
into commission on November 19th, 1936.
The scows of the Creston and Harrop-Longbeach Ferries are due for replacement next
fiscal year.

In the vicinity of Nanaimo, 5.75 miles of oil dust-layer was sprayed. Maintenance was
done on all bituminous-surfaced roads in a generally satisfactory manner. It is again
necessary to stress the need for greater attention to detail in the preparation of roads for
surfacing, not only in the actual construction of road-bed and drainage-work, but in maintaining gravel road-surfaces continuously until the bituminous surface is applied; this is
particularly necessary where spray-coat work is to be done, as neglect of maintenance,
resulting in pot-holes, causes a condition which cannot be effectively remedied immediately
ahead of the bituminous spray, and which the spray application will not cure.

DISTRICT REPORTS.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 1  (VANCOUVER ISLAND, THE ISLANDS, AND
NORTHERLY PART OF MACKENZIE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, H. L. Swan, Victoria.
General.—During the fiscal year there was a further improvement throughout the district
in the employment conditions. In one electoral district this amounted to a reduction of
approximately 30 per cent., as against a 20-per-cent. reduction during the last fiscal year.
In the Duncan and Alberni areas this improvement in the relief situation has been marked,
there being few relief recipients available for road-work. ....  .,

The winter of 1936-37 was remarkable for the heavy snowfall and the length of time
which this remained on the ground. Fortunately the thaw was slow, as on the Malahat, for
instance, packed snow 4% feet in depth was taken away by the gradual thaw without creating
flood conditions. In the Islands District snow-ploughing was carried on steadily from early
in January until the last week in February, and snow-ploughs travelled 1,418 miles in this
district. This is an unusual condition for the Islands District. The Comox District was most
seriously affected by the snowfall and it was necessary to hire local equipment to cope with
the situation, which was the most difficult ever encountered in that district.
Forty-three and three-tenths miles of bituminous resurfacing and major renewals was
done on existing roads in the district during the year. This represents 12 per cent, of the
total bituminous surfacing in the district.
Alberni-Nanaimo Electoral District.
On the Canadian Highway between Hilliers and Alberni the Dog Creek Project, commenced last year as a Provincial Government Relief Project, was continued as part of the
Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement under contract. Under the same agreement, 8 miles
of the main road between Long Beach and Tofino was ditched and graded. In conjunction
with the Dominion Government, work was done on the development and improvement of
mining-trails to the following extent: Sproat and Kennedy Lake-Wreck Bay Trail, 12 miles
along the north side of Sproat Lake, 8 miles of the 21 miles from Taylor River to Kennedy
River, and on the 4 miles from Ucluelet-Tofino Road to Kennedy Lake. Other trails built
and improved under the same appropriation in this district were the trail from the head of
Zeballos Arm at tide-water for a distance of 2 miles and the Dash Creek Trail near Nanaimo
Lakes.
Comox Electoral District.
A contract was let under the Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement for the revision of
% mile of the Island Highway south of Campbell River and 2.2 miles at Buckley Bay. The
Campbell River section was completed and put into service in January, but the Buckley Bay
section was not finished at the end of the fiscal year. In addition to this, 2 miles of the
Island Highway were prepared for hard-surfacing from the end of the mulch surface, Mile
169, towards Campbell River.
Mining-trail work was done in conjunction with the Dominion Government on the Campbell Lake-Buttle Lake Trail for approximately 11 miles.
Cowichan-Newcastle Electoral District.
The important revision of the Island Highway through the Indian reserve at Oyster
Harbour, north of Ladysmith, was completed. The Youbou Road was widened and improved,
and the highway at Cowichan Bay was widened, this work being done as a part of the
Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement. A contract was also let and completed for the
reconstruction of 2.82 miles of the Cowichan Lake Road.
Mining-trail work was done in conjunction with the Dominion Government on the Arrow-
smith-Cowichan Lake Trail and the Cowichan Lake-Chemainus River Trail.
Esquimalt Electoral District.
The improvement at Goldstream on the Island Highway, completed during the last fiscal
year, was continued from Mile 12 northerly for a distance of 4.6 miles, under contract. This
section of the highway was entirely reconstructed by widening and improvement to standard
width; 15,000 feet of standard guard-rail were erected with very satisfactory results, both
in the efficiency and general appearance of the road.
The Goldstream Bridge over the Island Highway, formerly a 50-foot King truss, was
replaced with a steel I-beam span on concrete abutments with a reinforced-concrete floor,
giving improved alignment.    The Helmcken Bridge was reconstructed.
The section of the West Coast Road between Sooke and Tugwell Creek was widened to
standard width, shoulders levelled, slopes trimmed, ditches cleaned out, and 1.62 miles of the
same road were built under contract to complete this road between Jordan River and Sooke.
Mining-trail work was done in conjunction with the Dominion Government on the
Koksilah River Road for a distance of 6 miles and on the trail from Leechtown for 6 miles. X 12 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1936-37.
The Mill Bay Ferry was kept very busy during the time that the Malahat was completely
closed to traffic on account of the reconstruction of the existing surface on the contract
section, Mileage 12 to 16.
Islands Electoral District.
The Walters Bridge on the Beddis Road and the. Crusher Bridge on the Fulford Road
were both replaced by culverts, the fill material being obtained by widening and improving
the road.
Mackenzie Electoral District (Northerly Part).
In the Mackenzie District 3 miles of new road were constructed at various points throughout the district in addition to minor reconstructions and ordinary maintenance-work. A
serious flood occurred in this district at Bella Coola in November which was a departure
from the usual flood conditions in the valley, in that a great deal of road-damage took place
along the upper reaches of the river.    The Malaspina Bridge near Powell River was rebuilt.
Saanich Electoral District.
In the Saanich District the widening of shoulders was continued, approximately 3 miles
being finished during the year.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 2 (BURNABY, DEWDNEY, NORTH VANCOUVER,
VANCOUVER-POINT GREY, AND SOUTHERLY PART OF MACKENZIE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, E. H. Verner, Vancouver.
Burnaby Electoral District.
In the middle of August a contract was let under the Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement for the reconstruction of a portion of the Dewdney Trunk Road 19r in the City of Port
Moody.    This improvement has been very successful.
Snow fell intermittently during all of January and the first half of February, necessitating continuous snow-removal during this entire period.
Dewdney Electoral District.
During the first three months of the year, good work was accomplished by Camps 203,
226, and 227 on Project No. 74, Deroche to Agassiz section of Lougheed Highway, until the
camps were closed down by the Department of National Defence.
The second quarter of the year opened with rising water in the Fraser River. This
reached a maximum on June 5th, when 22 feet 6 inches was registered on the Mission gauge.
This height was equalled in 1903 and surpassed only by the flood of 1894, when the Mission
gauge registered 25 feet 9 inches. The Nicomen Island Dyke at several points was in grave
danger, but a large force of men working night and day sandbagged the weak points and
prevented a break.
On the Hatzic Peninsula the private dyke proved inadequate. The area was completely
flooded and crops were entirely wiped out. All settlers and stock had to be removed from
this district until the water subsided, which took several weeks. Road-damage here was
extensive. At Harrison Mills the private dyke also proved inadequate and the whole district
was flooded and traffic on the Lougheed Highway 26r was interrupted for eight days. All
settlers and stock sought refuge on the high ground at the toe of Agassiz Mountain. The
road-damage here was not heavy.
In the Agassiz District the flood was of short duration, but the road-damage was very
great. Lougheed Highway 26r (Ferry Road) was cut in five places. The worst of these
was about 90 feet across and had an average depth of 8 feet. Traffic to the ferry was
opened by detouring over municipal roads, which required only minor repairs. The five gaps
washed out by the flood on Lougheed Highway 26r (Ferry Road) were quickly restored to
traffic by filling and surfacing with gravel. Considerable extension to the Fraser River
bank-protection was carried out south of Maria Slough, and eleven pile groynes were added
to this work, the results of which have been most gratifying. DISTRICT REPORTS. X 13
In the middle of August a contract under the Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement
was let for raising the Agassiz Flats section of the Lougheed Highway 26r. This gave a
general elevation of about 18 inches above the old road and, surfaced with crushed gravel,
has proven an excellent highway improvement.
Bituminous surfacing was done by contract on the Deroche-Agassiz section of the
Lougheed Highway and a black surface has been completed for 13 miles east of Deroche.
This gives a continuous hard surface from Vancouver to Agassiz Flats, a distance of 65 miles.
Between Christmas and the New Year, Camps 203, 226, and 227 were occupied by single
homeless men, who were employed ditching and installing culverts and widening on Agassiz
Mountain, which entailed heavy rock-work. A number of men were necessarily employed in
snow-removal, due to the snowfall which began early in January and continued intermittently
until the middle of February. The worst condition prevailed from Deroche eastward, where
continuous heavy winds caused serious drifts at many points. Drifts up to 10 feet deep had
to be removed from the roads in the Agassiz District. Two snow-ploughs were continuously
employed on the work, in addition to a large number of men from Camps 203, 226, and 227.
The main highway from Pitt River Bridge to Agassiz was open to traffic throughout the
snow conditions, with the exception of one day and a half.
Mackenzie Electoral District (Southerly Part).
New construction to the extent of 3.4 miles was completed during the year; 2.1 miles
being done by relief-camp labour and 1.3 miles by local labour. For the first three months
of the year the camps were operated under the Department of National Defence, finishing
up the Sechelt-Pender Harbour Road between Halfmoon Bay and Pender Harbour.
In January the camps reopened under Provincial control. The Sechelt-Pender Harbour
Road was continued around the head of the harbour and 1.8 miles constructed. Between
Halfmoon Bay and Northwest Bay reconstruction which included widening and eliminating
excessive gradients was carried out on 1.3 miles.
In the Gibsons Landing and Sechelt areas 1.3 miles of local and settlers' roads were constructed and 3.3 miles reconstructed. This work was carried out mainly by local relief
labour and a large percentage of it was by hand-labour. In this section 2.3 miles of new
gravel were laid down and 4 miles of renewal on various roads throughout the district.
Six bridges were reconstructed and nine repaired. Mission Creek Bridge No. 2 was
reconstructed to conform to the alignment of the road—the ends of the approaches were
raised and the truss lowered, which now ensures good vision.
Ditching and draining received special attention, as this class of work lent itself better
to hand-labour, especially local relief-work. As a dust-preventive, 2 miles of road scattered
in the various business sections were sprayed with bitumen.
J
North Vancouver Electoral District.
No new construction was carried out this year. On the Dollarton Highway 2.74 miles
were double flush-coated and is giving satisfactory service.
In the unorganized territory four bridges were repaired. On Marine Drive 67a, Rodgers
and Sherman Creek Bridges, which were converted to culverts and fills last year, had the
irregularities of the fill trued up with pre-mix and flush-coated, also the guard-rails painted.
Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral District.
No new road-construction was undertaken during the year. Protection-work was carried
out along Spanish Banks for 2,000 feet. A series of rock groynes were built along the foreshore and filled between with 65,253 cubic yards of sand. Washouts along the face of the
excavation, due to abnormal water content, gave considerable trouble, necessitating ditching,
field-tile draining, and pipe culverts. A cedar box flume was built in the ditch for a distance
of 3,541 feet to prevent erosion of the sand by the run-off; 1,271 lineal feet of 18-inch half-
round creosoted wood-stave flume were installed between the Leferre fill and the wireless
station, as seepage from this ditch created a menace to the adjoining property during heavy
run-offs. X 14 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1936-37.
On Marine Drive No. 3, 1 mile of bituminous mulch surface was laid, 2 inches thick.
Marine Drive No. 3 and Twenty-ninth Avenue each received 2,000 square yards of bituminous
flush-coating.
Considerable ditching was done and four concrete culverts installed to replace old log
structures.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 3  (DELTA, CHILLIWACK, NEW WESTMINSTER,
AND PORTIONS OF DEWDNEY AND YALE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, H. C. Anderson, New Westminster.
New Westminster Electoral District.
The major work was the continued construction of the new highway traffic bridge, the
northerly half and New Westminster City approaches lying in this district. Maintenance-
work was confined to the road system in District Lot 172, which was generally carried out
by relief labour.
Delta Electoral District.
The Pacific and Trans-Canada Highways were for the first time marked with a continuous yellow centre line. This work was much appreciated by the travelling public, being
particularly helpful during the foggy season.
A prolonged season of snowfall made it necessary to keep snow-removal equipment in
service for the most part twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week, for a period of
about six weeks. The pavements were kept clear at all times, traffic moving without the
assistance of chains.
Construction.—To provide adequate approaches for the south approach to the new Fraser
River Bridge at New Westminster, grading operations were started for the revised Scott
Road approach and widening of the Pacific Highway approach in accordance with surveys
carried out during the latter part of the fiscal year 1935-36.
Some progress was made on the Peace Arch Highway between Campbell River Road and
Elgin from April until the end of June by Department of National Defence forces operating
from Camps 205 and 206.
Surfacing.—Johnston Road (89b) : 0.30 mile of mulch was laid in vicinity of Bear Creek.
The work was undertaken by Surrey Municipality, the Department paying half the cost under
the Secondary Classification Agreement. Bridge Street and Westminster Avenue (87b) :
0.52 mile of mulch (18 feet wide) was laid between Delta Street and Ladner Marsh Road.
Such improvements arranged with the Delta Municipality under the Secondary Highway
Agreement are of considerable benefit to the increasing traffic via the Ladner Ferry.
Bridges.—Work on bridges was confined to general repairs and the usual operation of
the Eburne, Fraser Avenue, and Canoe Pass Bridges, all of which have draw-spans requiring
considerable attention, especially in the case of the Eburne Bridge, which opens about 400 to
500 times a month.
Ferries.—While the Ladner-Woodward Ferry was satisfactorily operated daily throughout the year, on several occasions some trips had to be cancelled on account of sand-bars
(in June), fog (in November), and ice (in January). With the painting of the hull and
other improvements, the ferry-boat " Agassiz," under charter, is in serviceable condition.
Barnston Island Ferry has provided a generally satisfactory service. During the sever©
weather last winter it was possible to maintain a daily schedule except on February 18th,
when the movement of ice in Parsons Channel caused the suspension of all services.
Chilliwack Electoral District.
The usual maintenance was carried out on all main arteries. Less frost-damage had to
be contended with than for several years.
Construction.—A very satisfactory construction programme was undertaken during the
year, some extensive improvements being made to the main highway system, both by
contract and day-labour. The work was carried out under the Dominion-Provincial Works
Agreement. DISTRICT REPORTS. X 15
On the Trans-Canada Highway, east of Rosedale, Project No. 1, 4.24 miles of the old
road were entirely reconstructed by contract on an improved grade and alignment, the roadbed being constructed to a width of 38 feet. Adjoining the contract section on the east, 4.58
miles were reconstructed by day-labour forces with departmental equipment, on the same
standards as the contract-work. On the Mission-Huntingdon Highway, Project No. 9, reconstruction of the Abbotsford-Clayburn section was undertaken by contract. With the
exception of 0.18 mile, which is on an entirely new location, the old road was reconstructed.
The grade and alignment were greatly improved adjacent to Abbotsford.
Under the Department of National Defence, with the use of departmental equipment,
during the period from April to June 30th, operating Camps 208 and 209, considerable improvement was made to the Trans-Canada Highway between Jones Hill and Jones Creek.
During the latter part of December, to provide work for single unemployed homeless men,
Jones Hill Camp No. 208 was again reopened and the construction on the east side of Jones
Hill was completed, involving the removal of about 7,000 cubic yards of solid rock. This
work completed the reconstruction of the Cheam-Jones Creek section. On the completion of
the Jones Hill work, the forces were employed in finishing and trimming all slopes and ditches.
Snow-removal.—A prolonged period of snowfall, with occasional high winds in the Chilliwack area, causing severe drifting conditions, kept the district's entire snow-removal equipment in operation night and day for the best part of six weeks. With the exception of a few
hours, the main highway was kept open at all times. For the first time snow-fences were
used to combat drift conditions, with exceptionally good results. A wire and lath fence was
used, strung along iron posts, made from 20-lb. railway-steel, guyed at various points to give
the required support. As an experiment fencing was used on only a few of the worst points,
resulting in its being possible to keep sections clear which ordinarily were impassable for days
and could only be reopened by the use of heavy tractor equipment. At the end of the season
the fencing was taken down, dipped in creosote, and stored away in rolls for future use.
Bridges.—The bridge at Cheam, having a span of 40 feet, with a reinforced-concrete
deck supported by steel I-beams, with a roadway-width of 24 feet, was completed. This
structure replaced two wooden bridges, all the water being confined to one channel by the
construction of a new waterway.    The work was done by day-labour.
Trestle Bridge No. 40-3 over Cheam Creek was replaced with a cedar pile trestle 222
feet in length, with an average height of 30 feet, roadway-width of 22 feet 8 inches. A 60-
foot span, King truss, was placed in the Ferry Slough Bridge on the Rosedale Ferry Road
to replace a portion of trestle taken out by the spring freshets. Several small pile structures
of Department standard design were constructed in connection with the Federal Aid Projects.
All wooden bridge floors on the Trans-Canada Highway were given a bituminous wearing
surface.
Ferries.—Owing to extreme high water during the first portion of June, 1936, and on
account of severe ice conditions, January 27th to March 1st, 1937 (the longest tie-up on
record), the Agassiz-Rosedale Ferry was compelled to discontinue operations. At the Rosedale Winter Landing it was necessary to replace by more substantial dolphins those destroyed
by the Fraser River ice.
River-bank Protection.—In conjunction with the Federal and municipal authorities, further remedial work was carried out on the Fraser River in the vicinity of Rosedale. This
work was interrupted temporarily by the spring freshets of the Fraser, which reached the
high level of 22 feet 6 inches on the Mission gauge, the highest since 1894.
Dewdney Electoral District (Eastern Section).
Roads.—Before the closing of the Department of National Defence Camp No. 347 at
American Creek, about 1.75 miles of the Hope-Yale section of the Trans-Canada Highway
were regraded and gravelled. Under the Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement, Project
No. 1, approximately 2 miles of this road were entirely reconstructed by contract on greatly
improved alignment and grade, which, for the most part, was through solid rock. Another
important improvement was the diversion of this highway to permit of the construction of
an overhead crossing of the Canadian Pacific Railway at Haig. The grading of the approaches for this crossing was commenced by contract in December, 1936, and completed
during the year. The bridge structure itself was, however, uncompleted at the end of the
fiscal year. X 16 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1936-37.
Bridges.—In the reconstruction of the Hope-Yale Road, the Schkam Creek Bridge was
built, by contract, alongside the old structure. It comprises four bays of frame trestle at
17-foot centres.
Apart from its importance as eliminating a Canadian Pacific Railway grade crossing at
Haig, the overhead structure, now almost completed, contains several unique construction
features. The bridge is constructed on a 14-degree curve and consists of a preframed
creosoted timber double-deck trestle on concrete foundations. The over-all length is 484 feet,
with provision for double-tracking of the railway. This is taken care of by a 37-foot steel
I-beam span.
The deck of this bridge is of the composite timber and concrete type, consisting of a
laminated floor of 2-inch by 8-inch and 2-inch by 10-inch timber on edge placed alternately,
into which anti-sheer developers are set, together with uplift spikes. Over this is placed
reinforcing iron and the concrete deck and curb constructed integral. This structure is
the first of its kind to be constructed in Canada.
Yale Electoral District (Southern Section).
With the exception of the usual maintenance, wholly by unemployment relief labour on
the Hope-Princeton Road and Trail, and the snow-ploughing of portion of the Cariboo Road,
no work was undertaken in this district.
General.—In the untimely death of Mr. C. L. Grant we lost a zealous and efficient worker.
His place as surfacing foreman will be difficult to fill.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 4 (YALE, KAMLOOPS, SALMON ARM, REVELSTOKE,
NORTH AND SOUTH OKANAGAN, SIMILKAMEEN, AND GRAND FORKS-
GREENWOOD ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, R. M. Taylor, Kamloops.
General.—Work was undertaken on practically all main roads under the Dominion-
Provincial Works Agreement, and a considerable amount of new construction and reconstruction carried out on the various projects. Work was also undertaken under the same
agreement on mining-roads in various electoral districts.
Widening of the road-bed and elimination of old timber cribs was undertaken on the
Cariboo Highway near Anderson Creek, and major reconstruction done between Vernon and
Kelowna in North Okanagan District and between Penticton and Osoyoos in Similkameen
District.
Clearing and grubbing by day-labour was carried out on the Hope-Princeton Road west
of Princeton, and a tote-road completed from the end of construction to the summit at Allison
Pass.    Work was continued on the Big Bend Highway by the Dominion Government.
Snow-ploughing in all electoral districts was very heavy, as snow conditions were the
worst in history.
A new bridge was constructed over the South Thompson River at Kamloops, and a new
bridge, replacing a bridge washed out in July, 1935, was constructed over the Barriere River
on the North Thompson Highway.
Yale Electoral District.
In June the Department of National Defence camps closed and no further work was
carried out on these projects. A 2-mile project of reconstruction on Spences Bridge-Merritt
Road was laid out and contract awarded to Dawson, Wade & Co., who completed 50 per cent,
of the actual project. Four miles of reconstruction on the Cariboo Highway at Anderson
Creek was carried out by day-labour during the winter and 80 per cent, completed.
Maintenance-work consisted chiefly of making up the deficit in gravel; good progress
was made in this work.
Considerable difficulty was experienced in keeping the roads open during the winter, the
snowfall being unusually heavy. Owing to slides and washouts, the Cariboo Highway was
closed for six weeks in March and April.
Early in January a camp for single homeless men was opened at Clapperton Camp No.
329 and Vi mile of road-improvement in solid rock was done. ..:■:■:  DISTRICT REPORTS. X 17
In July a cloudburst caused the Trans-Canada Highway between Spences Bridge and
Lytton to be blocked for four days and demolished the Thompson Bridge over Nicomen Creek.
The road was finally cleaned out and a new pile trestle erected.
Kamloops Electoral District.
Maintenance of Roads.—Road maintenance was difficult in the summer owing to long
dry spells of weather, and in the winter owing to extraordinary heavy snow conditions caused
by high winds and drifting. Construction-work was carried out on the Trans-Canada Highway between Cache Creek and Kamloops and on the North Thompson Highway immediately
north of Kamloops and at the Barriere River, under the Dominion-Provincial Works
Agreement.
Under the same agreement, work was done on the Vidette Mines Road, 17 miles being
widened and all soft stretches gravelled.
Bridges.—A new bridge was constructed over the South Thompson River at Kamloops,
replacing the old bridge which had reached the end of its useful life. A bridge was also
built across the Barriere River under the Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement, replacing a
temporary trestle.    Several smaller bridges were rebuilt.
Equipment.—Repairs to equipment were carried out at Kamloops Garage; this garage
repairs and services all Government equipment in the district and 145 units were handled.
Salmon Arm Electoral District.
Maintenance of Roads.—Due to the heavy winter frosts which penetrated the ground
to a depth of 4 feet, the roads heaved up badly after the thaw and the maintenance costs to
put the roads in condition were exceptionally heavy. Added to this, the spring run-off was
abnormal, which created heavy flood conditions.
Bridges.—Ten bridges were reconstructed and four bridges replaced by culverts and
filled in.    Minor repairs were carried out on many bridges.
Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement.—Two and a half miles of reconstruction to
standard grade were completed, Mile 295.2 to Mile 300.5, near Pritchard, on the Trans-
Canada Highway.
Revelstoke Electoral District.
Winter Maintenance.—During the usual heavy snowfall, which was approximately 180
inches, the main roads were kept open for traffic, with the exception of Revelstoke West
Road, No. 74.
Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement.—One and forty-two hundredths miles of reconstruction to standard grade was carried out on the Trans-Canada Highway, Mile 424 to Mile
426, 2.5 miles west of Revelstoke.
Big Bend. Highway (West Portion).—The Department of the Interior (Dominion Government) commenced operations on May 15th and shut down on December 23rd, 1936. During
the year 29.12 miles of road were reconstructed, 22.4 miles were surfaced, 31.50 miles were
cleared, and 18 miles maintained. There were six bridges structurally improved. One bridge
was reconstructed.    The average number of men employed during the season 1936 was 350.
North Okanagan Electoral District.
Good progress was made on standardization of main and trunk roads by contract-work
and day-labour in preparation for bituminous surfacing, of which some 4% miles were laid
during the season.
Final repairs to bridges and roads due to flood-damage were completed.
Snow-removal service entailed heavy expenditures to combat an unusual winter of exceptional snowfall.
South Okanagan Electoral District.
Improvements were carried out on the main road system under contract, eliminating
dangerous curvature and grades.
The first steel-girder span in the district was erected over Mission Creek.
A grade crossing at Mile 111.7 on the C.N.R. Okanagan Subdivision line was eliminated
by the construction of an overhead crossing for the main Kelowna-Vernon Road. This
bridge is a pile structure, with main span carried on steel girders, and is 180 feet over all.
2 X 18 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1936-37.
Except for a brief period, owing to ice conditions, the Kelowna-Westbank Ferry maintained an uninterrupted schedule.
Snow-removal, for which there is an increasing demand, was extensive, the snowfall
being double any previous recorded fall. Relief labour and tax work were applied to supplement maintenance operations.
Similkameen Electoral District.
Construction-work by day-labour was undertaken on the Hope-Princeton Highway, as a
result of which some 90 acres of right-of-way were cleared, 11 grubbed, and a pilot-road
carried to the Allison Pass Summit.
A 2.4-mile section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway was reconstructed to
standard specifications.    This was the Vaseaux Lake section of the Penticton-Oliver Road.
A new mining-road, 8 miles in extent, from the town of Hedley to the Nickel Plate Mine
and other properties was constructed and is now in use; a mile of new road was also built
to the Gold Mountain Mine Mill, giving access to shipping-points on the main highway.
The failure of an irrigation-dam at Okanagan Falls inundated the townsite and destroyed
a number of roads and bridges, all of which were subsequently replaced.
Unusual winter weather conditions made snow-removal difficult.
Grand Forks-Greenwood Electoral District.
Almond Gardens Road, 2 miles, and Athelstan Mine Road, 2 miles, were constructed and
8 miles of the Dentonia Mine Road to Jewel Lake were reconstructed.
At Laurier, construction of a new diversion was undertaken to eliminate two level
crossings of the Great Northern Railway between Cascade and Laurier, necessitating the
moving of a portion of the railway-track.
On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, 4 miles of improvement were carried out
to standard; 18 miles received a bituminous spray-coat, 7 miles being new work, and 11
miles being the second application. Preparation of surface for bituminous surface was
carried out on 7 miles.
ENGINEERING   DISTRICT   No.   5   (CRANBROOK,  FERNIE,   COLUMBIA,   NELSON-
CRESTON, KASLO-SLOCAN, AND ROSSLAND-TRAIL ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, E. S. Jones, Cranbrook.
Cranbrook Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Reconstruction.—The majority of the work in the Cranbrook
Electoral District for the fiscal year was carried out by contract. On the Trans-Provincial
Highway, south of Cranbrook, work was started on the Moyie Lake section and during the
season about 50 per cent, of the work was completed. The Lumberton section was entirely
completed under extremely unfavourable conditions, as, through lack of moisture, it was
difficult to get the highway consolidated after it had been laid down. However, this section
stood the winter very well and no extra work was required, with the exception of rolling,
in order to have it ready for hard-surfacing.
On the Kootenay-Columbia Highway the Skookumchuck Prairie section, for a distance
of 6% miles, was reconstructed by contract. This work presented many difficulties on
account of the nature of the material encountered. The work was completed, however, during
the early spring. To consolidate the road-bed, about 1,000 yards of clay had to be placed
over the entire project.    This proved very satisfactory.
The most important day-labour work that was carried out was the completion of the
Cranbrook-Kimberley Highway by reconstruction in the spring and later in the season by
hard-surfacing 5 miles. This now completes the highway between Kimberley and Cranbrook,
which is completely hard-surfaced. Hard-surfacing was also carried out at Lumberton 3.73
miles, at Moyie 4.67 miles, 4 miles at Ryan, and 4.8 miles on the Kimberley Road, making
a total of 17.2 miles for the season. ■5--

Revision of Southern Trans-Provincial Highway between Penticton and Oliver at Vasseaux Lake.  DISTRICT REPORTS. X 19
General.—Weather conditions during the whole season were very unsatisfactory as far
as road maintenance and road construction were concerned, owing to the extremely dry
conditions in the summer and snow conditions throughout the winter.
Fernie Electoral District.
Hard-surfacing programme was carried out completely. Nineteen miles of Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway, between Fernie and Elko, were resurfaced. Ten miles of ditching
on same section were completed.
Work under the Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement on Project 6, Hosmer-Natal
section, Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, was commenced on October 19th and closed
down March 31st, 33 acres being cleared and grubbed and 40,000 cubic yards of earth and
hard-pan being excavated. Four hundred feet of concrete culverts were laid and 125 feet
of 36-inch iron culverts were placed in position. Four thousand eight hundred cubic yards
of crushed rock are on site ready for spreading.
Snowfall was about the average and all main roads were kept open. No major bridge-
work was undertaken during the year under review. With the exception of Project No. 6
and hard-surfacing as outlined above, work consisted of usual seasonal maintenance only, for
which weather conditions were not very favourable.
Columbia Electoral District.
Kootenay-Columbia Highway.—Reconstruction of a total of 11.01 miles was done by
contract under the Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement. This is comprised of a 6.72-mile
section near Dutch Creek, of the Radium-Kingsgate Project, and three sections between
Radium and Golden—namely, 1.26 miles adjacent to Radium, 1.44 miles between Spillama-
cheen and Brisco, and 1.59 miles adjacent to Golden.
Trans-Canada Highway, Kicking Horse Section.—During the winter, unemployment-
relief recipients residing in Golden were employed in widening a narrow section of this highway where it enters the town.
Donald Ferry.—The old ferry, which had reached the end of its useful life, was replaced
by a new 3-ton capacity pontoon.
Nelson-Creston Electoral District.
Road Construction and Improvement.—In addition to the contract-work under the
Dominion-Provincial Agreement, four important projects were carried on by the Department,
using own machinery and relief labour. These consisted in widening and generally rebuilding 2.7 miles of the Nelson—Castlegar Road from Peter's Tomb to Robson; the continuation
during the summer months of construction between Grey Creek and Crawford Bay; in the
winter, widening the old narrow railway-grade between Kuskonook and Atbara; and in
opening up the road on the flats between Creston and Wynndel.
The latter was made possible because the Creston Reclamation Company had piled up the
spoil from their drainage-ditch in such a way that it was possible to grade it out into a well-
drained road 30 to 40 feet wide on top and averaging 3 feet above the level of the surrounding
country.
Ferries.—A new ferry hull was built at Nelson and put into operation.
The steamship " Nasookin " was given a complete overhaul early in the summer.
Snow-removal.—A comparatively heavy snowfall kept our ploughs busy from late November until April, but no main road was closed to traffic more than twelve hours; in fact, the
only main road so closed was the Nelson-Nelway and this was due to slides.
Kaslo-Slocan Electoral District.
Snow-removal.—Conditions prevailing last winter were extremely difficult. All boat and
train services were tied up for practically the whole winter. Notwithstanding the continuous
heavy snowfall, roads in the district were only closed to traffic for a few days at the end of
February. Two hundred and fifty-eight miles of road were kept open. Ploughs travelled
6,771 miles and were working for 3,000 hours. This does not include the crews of relief
workers who were kept continually clearing slides and snow-drifts. X 20 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1936-37.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—Major work done this year included 2 miles
of a 9-mile diversion on the Slocan Valley-Nakusp Highway and 1 mile reconstructed at Box
Lake on the same highway. Both of these jobs were done under contract by the General
Construction Company. Over 1 mile of road on the Kaslo-New Denver Road was standardized by day-labour. Work on all the above projects will be carried on during the ensuing
year.
Ferries.—Owing to such severe winter conditions, the ferry at Needles had to be closed
for eighteen days and the ferry at Arrow Park for eleven days; otherwise the services
were continuous.
Mining Roads and Trails.—Twenty-two mining roads and trails were maintained and
put in shape for transportation during the year.
River-bank Protection.—Protection-work was done on Kuskanaux Creek near Nakusp;
two long log crib walls were built to divert the stream from its old bed into a new channel.
All this work was done by relief labour.
Rossland-Trail Electoral District.
Highway Maintenance.—The roads in the Rossland-Trail District were opened up rather
late, due to a cold backward spring with heavy frosts and consequent heaving of portions of
the main highways. The roads which had been reconstructed stood up splendidly under the
heavy traffic.
A crew of twenty men with trucks and grader opened up the Cascade Road between
Rossland and Cascade and traffic was allowed through on April 23rd; to accomplish this
required the ploughing of snow for over 20 miles.
Highway Construction and Improvement.—Work was done on the Castlegar-Trail Road
by men from the Department of National Defence relief camps, approximately 1 mile being
reconstructed and surfaced with crushed gravel in the vicinity of Murphy Creek.
One-half mile of standard road at Warfield Subdivision and 1 mile at China Creek Subdivision were constructed and surfaced as minor betterments.
Approximately SVi miles of road were reconstructed and 1 mile of new road constructed
on the Castlegar-Trail Road by contract; this work was surfaced with crushed and screened
gravel with satisfactory results.
About 2V2 miles of bituminous mulch were laid down in the district during the year.
Ferries.—The only ferry in the district, that at Castlegar, was taken out of the water at
the end of the season for repair.
Surveys.—Relocation-work was done on the Rossland-Cascade Road and the Rossland-
Paterson Road.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 6   (LILLOOET AND CARIBOO
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, W. Ramsay, Williams Lake.
North Cariboo Electoral District.
On settlement and farm roads some good improvements, particularly in the matter of
drainage and gravel surfacing, were made through the medium of work in lieu of taxes.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall, while not so heavy as in other winters, was dry and frequently
accompanied by heavy winds, causing drifting and consequently requiring more frequent
ploughing. All the main travelled roads were kept open and, throughout the winter, there
was very little delay to traffic.
Improvements and Reconstruction of Highways.—Improvements consisted of construction
of diversions to improve alignment, and also widening to standard width some sections of road
already on permanent location. The following are the more important projects under this
heading: Cariboo Road, Mile 178 to Mile 181, 3.1 miles reconstruction to standard width;
Mile 194 to Mile 196, 1.6 miles reconstruction.
Mining-roads—Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement.—Quesnel-Barkerville Road: Reconstruction of 20-Mile Hill on improved alignment, with grade reduction from 15 to 9 per
cent, and a minimum width of 20 feet.    Under this agreement very necessary work was also DISTRICT REPORTS. X 21
done on Bullion Road, Yanks Peak Trail, Likely-Keithley Road, and on several of the roads
tributary to the Quesnel-Barkerville Road.
Bridges.—Necessary work such as reinforcing, redecking, tightening trusses, and making
general repairs was undertaken. Severe floods north of Quesnel and in Keithley area resulted
in the loss of bridges at Keithley Creek, Hixon Creek, Cedar Creek, and Grouse Creek. The
latter two were minor bridges and were replaced, while temporary structures were first put
in over Hixon and Keithley Creeks. A temporary pile trestle had to be added to Canyon
Creek Bridge as a result of the widening of the channel by the same flood.
Ferries.—Spring overhaul, including reconditioning pontoons, was carried out on all
ferries and no replacements were made.
South Cariboo Electoral District.
Snow-removal.—All main and trunk roads and also a considerable mileage of side-roads
were ploughed and kept open through the winter in spite of heavy drifting for prolonged
periods, which necessitated more frequent ploughing than usual.
Improvements and Reconstruction.—Improvements and reconstruction of the Cariboo
Road were undertaken as follows: Mile 96.5 to Mile 97.0, 0.5 mile of diversion construction;
Mile 117 to Mile 118.5, 1.3 miles widening and gravelling; Mile 144.5 to Mile 147.0, 1.1 miles
of diversion construction and 1.4 miles of widening and surfacing.
Mining-roads—Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement.—Taseko Lake: Constructing 20
miles of road 9 feet wide, the excavated material for which amounted to approximately 17,000
cubic yards. Williams Lake-Likely (Likely Hill Diversion) : Making start on diversion 1.5
miles long to reduce grades from 18 to 7.5 per cent.
Bridges.—A pile-trestle structure 68 feet long was erected over Jones Creek at Mile 14.7
on Cariboo Road.
Lillooet Electoral District.
Snow-removal.—Around Ashcroft and through Marble Canyon to Lillooet the snow was
heavier than for many years, while in Bridge River area the total snowfall on Mission Mountain was 14 feet, and during the last week in February approximately 7 miles of snow and
rock slides had to be handled, making it very difficult to keep the road open continuously
throughout its entire length.
Improvements and Reconstruction — Mining-roads.-—Under the Dominion-Provincial
Works Agreement, the most important improvement-work in Lillooet District was carried out
on Bridge River Road, where contract-work and day-labour work were undertaken on practically the entire length of 54 miles.
Improvement-work was also proceeded with on Upper Squamish Valley Road, Mud Creek
Road, and the road between Pioneer and Pacific Eastern Mine.
Bituminous Surfacing.—An additional 5.67 miles of mulch were laid on the Trans-Canada
Highway from 3 miles west of Spences Bridge towards Lytton; the mileage laid in previous
years has stood up to traffic and weather conditions very satisfactorily.
General.
During the winter of 1936-37 in District No. 6 snow-ploughs opened up 1,150 miles of
road and the units engaged on the work travelled a snow-plough mileage of 10,550 miles.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 7 (PRINCE RUPERT, ATLIN, SKEENA, AND
OMINECA ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, J. C. Brady, Prince Rupert.
Prince Rupert Electoral District.
The North Trans-Provincial Highway was built from Mile 9 to Mile 10.02 under the
Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement, completing the road to Taylor Lake. This gives
access to a forest and stream country of interest to sportsmen, campers, and loggers. Surveys
were carried beyond construction in preparation for future work. X 22 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1936-37.
On Queen Charlotte Islands the road between Port Clements and Tlell, which is 12 miles
long and presents many objectionable features by reason of its being constructed of plank on
stringers, received considerable attention in the matter of renewing the ties, planks, and
stringers in the worst places, and also in replacing some sections by permanent construction
on solid ground. From Tlell to Skidegate the Queen Charlotte Island Marine Drive was
improved. From Skidegate to Queen Charlotte City 930 feet were widened in rock. On
Roads Nos. 17 and 8, running northerly from Port Clements, clearing, brushing, ditching,
gravelling, arid corduroying were done. At Sandspit 600 feet of the road were moved back
from the beach, graded and gravelled, and culverts renewed in various places.
On the Masset-Tow Hill Road construction was extended from Mile 10.7 to Mile 11.7
by slashing, clearing, and rough-grading. This work is part of a plan to entirely remove the
road from the beach between Miles 10 and 14 and is being continued as funds are available.
Between Miles 2 and 3 on this road two bad curves were greatly reduced. Between Mileage
16 and 17, near Tow Hill, the road-bed was improved by gravel and ditches and one new
culvert installed.
On the Old Masset-New Masset Road 1 mile of gravelling was done, and improvements
were made from Mile 2.5 to Mile 3.5.
At Lewis Island minor betterments were made to the trail. At Jap Inlet the old board
walk was taken up for 600 feet and replaced by rock and gravel.
Mount Oldfield Trail, leading from Prince Rupert to the ski-ing grounds, was extended
500 feet and trees were cleared out at certain view-points.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was very heavy in the vicinity of Prince Rupert and much
work was required in keeping the road open to the camp at 9-Mile, where work proceeded
during the greater part of the winter. Roads and sidewalks were cleared of snow in many
places on the Queen Charlotte Islands.
Floats.—At Cow Bay Floats severe storms did considerable damage. Two floats were
rebuilt and concrete blocks installed as anchors in place of piling which was badly teredo-
eaten.
Bridges.—A new bridge was constructed at Oona River to give access from one part of
the settlement to the other, and replacing the old one whose life was done. The bridge at
Osland was reconstructed.
Seven bridges between Port Clements and Skidegate were reconstructed in the scheme of
general improvement of the whole road.
Atlin Electoral District.
North Atlin.—No major projects were undertaken in North Atlin during the fiscal year
1936-37. Work was done under Vote 119, Grants in Aid of Mining Roads and Trails, on
Boulder Creek and Spruce Creek.
Stikine.—A start was made on Mining Project No. 9, Telegraph-Dease Lake Road and
McDame-Quartz City Trail, consisting for the most part of general reconstruction and rebuilding of bridges.
South Atlin.—Four major projects were undertaken in South Atlin. Favourable progress
was made on the Unuk River Road, where it was found necessary to take men and supplies
in by plane. The old trail of 20 miles was brushed out and 12 miles of new trail built. This
included % mile around a bad washout. This trail is now completed from Boundary Lake to
the Premier mining property.
Work on the Dolly Varden Project No. 6 was completed, except for about % mile of road
through the canyon and filling rock in some of the cribbing built near the end of the season.
Owing to the late start on the Big Missouri Mine Road Project No. 4 and the heavy
volume of traffic during reconstruction, it was not possible to make much headway before
snow came. Three acres were cleared, W2. acres grubbed, and bridges rebuilt and repaired
as far as possible.
A number of mining-trails were repaired under the vote for Grants in Aid of Mining
Roads and Trails.    A few minor bridges were also repaired.
Government offices at both Atlin and Telegraph Creek received repairs, and the roof of
the Court-house at Anyox was repaired and tarred. DISTRICT REPORTS. X 2£
Skeena Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways and Bridges.—Relief labour continued to be used to a considerable extent and settlers working out taxes were employed on maintenance.
High water, resulting in flood conditions, was again experienced at the end of May and
during the first week in June. Due to the flood the following bridges were destroyed: Driftwood Creek; Meanskinisht at Cedarvale Slough; while Price Creek Bridge at Kitwanga,
Skeena Suspension Bridge on Hazelton-Kispiox Road, Skeena River Bridge at Terrace, and
Braun's Island Bridge were damaged, as well as several smaller structures at different points.
The Skeena River Bridge at Terrace had 80 feet of south approach washed out and this has
been repaired;   Porphyry Creek Bridge was damaged and repaired later.
Numerous washouts and slides occurred and silt was deposited over some roads to a
considerable depth.
Ferries.—Necessary repairs on account of flood-damage were made at the following ferry-
sites :   Hazelton, Cedarvale, Kitwanga, Usk, Copper City, and Remo.
Highway Construction and Improvements—Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.—Three
miles were reconstructed and improved from the district boundary, 7 miles east of Smithers,
under the Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement, graded to 24 feet wide, ditched and
gravelled.
From Usk, easterly to Cedarvale, 3 miles of new road were opened up and partially
constructed and the Chimdemash Bridge partially built, under the same agreement. This
stretch of road was built to 24 feet wide for 1V2 miles and 20 feet for 1% miles. The width
of the road was temporarily reduced with the object of obtaining more mileage.
The new overhead crossing over the Canadian National Railway at New Hazelton was
completed and opened for traffic, thereby eliminating two level crossings and straightening
out the road to Hazelton.
Snow-removal.—A total of 130 miles of road were ploughed and kept open for traffic,
involving 832 snow-plough miles.
Buildings.—A new ferry-house was built at Kitwanga to replace one washed away in the
high water in June. Repairs made necessary by flood conditions to other ferry-houses were
made.
Surveys.—Surveys were made during the year for final bridge locations on the Driftwood
Creek Road for 2.75 miles and for revisions on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
between Hazelton and Smithers for 6 miles. The floods of 1935 and 1936 completely washed
away part of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between Skeena Crossing and Kitwanga, entailing surveys for new location for 2.5 miles. Work under the Dominion-Provincial
Works Agreement necessitated 4 miles of location and revision.
Omineca Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways, Bridges, and Ferries.—In addition to maintenance-work,
gravelling was done by settlers working out their taxes. Eight miles of right-of-way were
slashed and piled as a relief measure at Cluculz Lake Cut-off on Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway.
Snowfall was heavy and equipment was in use all winter; main roads were kept open
all winter and local roads ploughed one or more times.
Protection-work was done on Necoslie River, Buckley River, and Goat Creek Bridges
and various small bridges were redecked or repaired.
Ferries were all operated continuously until freeze-up, and cleaned, repaired, and put in
order during the winter.
Reconstruction.—On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway in the vicinity of McDowell
Creek a large culvert and fill was put in hand and was about 75 per cent, completed; this
will eliminate a very dangerous curve. At Perow 1% miles of road were reconstructed to
standard width and a rock-cut widened to 24 feet. Between Engen and Fort Fraser 3% miles
of the road were reconstructed to standard width and gravelled, while several smaller curves
were eliminated and road brought to standard.
Work on the Manson Creek-Peace River Road could not be commenced before August
and, owing to abnormal wet weather from then on, only about 50 per cent, of the work laid X 24 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1936-37.
out could be done. Miles 8 to 13 were graded and gravelled and the contract to construct
and gravel Miles 15 to 25 was 50 per cent, completed.
Takla Landing-Vital Creek Road for a distance of 42 miles was made passable during
the summer months for mining equipment, which will help the mining industry in that district
to a very large extent.
One mile of the Telkwa River Coal-mine Road was relocated, constructed, and gravelled;
this should eliminate the yearly slides. On the Burns Lake-Babine Road 7 miles of right-of-
way were cleared.
Bridges reconstructed included Clarke's Bridge, McLaurin Bridge, Kalhood Bridge, and
Willow Bridge.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 7a (FORT GEORGE ELECTORAL DISTRICT).
Assistant District Engineer, J. W. Miers, Prince George.
Maintenance of Highways.—During the spring thaw load restrictions were enforced, with
a resultant saving in maintenance costs.
Construction and Reconstruction of Highways—Cariboo Highway (Prince George—Woodpecker).—A short diversion on improved alignment was commenced at Mile 12 and 30 per
cent, completed. Between Miles 28 and 32 several short side-hill sections were widened and
straightened.
Cariboo Highway (Prince George-Summit Lake).—Improvements consisting chiefly of
widening and straightening were made at several points.
Fort George-Hazelton Highway.—Grading was completed on the new diversion at Mile 9.
Reconstruction of 3.71 miles in the vicinity of Bednesti Lake was commenced. The right-of-
way was cleared and grubbed for the entire distance and 3 miles partly graded. Owing to
wet weather the work was not completed.
Fort George-Yellowhead Highway.—Between Giscome and Hansard approximately 14
miles were lightly gravelled. Three thousand yards of granite were crushed and stock-piled
at Giscome. Some hand-ditching was done east of the Fraser River between Hansard and
Sinclair Mills.    Between McBride and Tete Jaune several miles were widened and gravelled.
Fort George-Chief Lake Highway.—Four miles were gravelled and 1 mile in swampy
ground ditched and widened.
Bridges and Culverts.—Several trestles and small bridges were reconstructed and a
number were repaired. Three concrete-pipe culverts were constructed, one 36-inch diameter
and two 24-inch diameter.
Ferries.—At Croydon a new ferry, consisting of a small reaction scow, was constructed.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was average and considerably lighter than for several
years. Bad drifting conditions were experienced in February and it was found impossible to
plough the drifts with available equipment. A truck equipped with V-plough gave good
satisfaction and in moderate depths of freshly fallen snow averaged a speed of 15 miles per
hour between Prince George and Woodpecker.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8  (PEACE RIVER ELECTORAL DISTRICT).
District Engineer, H. L. Hayne, Pouce Coupe.
Maintenance of Highways.—The patrol system is proving to be satisfactory and requests
to enlarge it are being received from all parts of the district.
Highway Construction and Improvement.—Continuing the reconstruction of the Grand
Prairie-Fort St. John-Peace Pass Highway, the last stretch between rail-head and Fort St.
John, a distance of 22 miles, was well ditched and brought to an 18-foot section, and work
was continued on the Cache Creek, 23 miles farther west, to 16-foot section.
Fort St. John-Hines Creek Road: The new grade opened up east of the Beatton River
was widened and the 3-mile gap to join up with the old road was built.
Dawson Creek-Rolla-Carpio: Nine miles between Rolla and Doe River were reconstructed 18 feet wide and the right-of-way cleared of small brush 66 feet wide.
Rolla East: Reconstructed for 5 miles 18 feet wide and a fill crossing a low spot raised
4 feet high by 500 feet long. DISTRICT REPORTS. X 25
Dawson Creek-Sunrise Road: The remaining 3 miles to complete this cut-off to Sunrise
was rough-graded, but owing to frost conditions a number of small fills and culverts remain
to be installed.
Progress-Sunset-Groundbirch: Several bad hills were cut and low spots filled for a
distance of 4 miles.
Dawson-Moberly-Hudson Hope: Sixteen miles between Dawson Creek and Rattray's
Corner were ditched and graded to an 18-foot section and the right-of-way for 4 miles through
fairly heavy alder was widened 50 feet on the south side.
Pouce Coupe-Briar Ridge: The entire road a distance of 19Y2 miles was regraded, new
culverts and fills made, and the right-of-way brushed out 66 feet wide.
Numerous other minor roads were well ditched and graded and a total of 300 culverts
varying in size installed, using jack-pine timber taken out by relief labour during the winter.
Bridges Reconstructed and Maintained.—Twelve old bridges were replaced with standard
10-ton pile structures having a total length of deck of 1,008 feet and four entirely new bridges
of the same type having a deck-length of 120 feet were built.
A survey for a new bridge to eliminate the ford over the Pouce Coupe River at Landry's
was made and a good site selected.
Ferries.—The new tug put in operation at the Taylor Ferry Crossing of the Peace River
has proved very satisfactory, handling the barge without help. The only tie-up occurred in
July, when the Peace River rose to the highest point on record, flooding the low flat on the
south side of the river. A survey was made for a ferry to serve Clayhurst and a good site
selected opposite the mouth of the Moose River. An overhead cable was installed at the Halfway to allow crossing by basket when the ice is going out.
Unemployment Relief.—The policy of using relief labour to get out piling and culvert
material in the winter was continued.
Tax Work.—This has been a great boon to the district; work on many side-roads and
major work on main roads has been done for which provision could not otherwise have been
made.
Buildings.—The Government Building and Engineer's residence were painted and a new
building for storage of small equipment built in the Public Works Yard. All other buildings
were maintained. X 26
