Parliament Buildings,
October 5th, 1938.   PUBLIC WORKS REPORT.
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., September 27th, 1938.
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 1937-38:—
GENERAL OUTLINE OF WORK.
The highway programme as carried out during the previous year was actively pursued
with a view to reconstruction, widening, surfacing, and generally improving the main highways of the Province in order that they may constitute the safe, expeditious, and comfortable
means of communication. It was possible to carry out considerably more surfacing of highways due to the practice pursued the previous year, whereby the question of reconstruction
and improvement assumed more importance than the actual surfacing. This practice was
continued this year, having regard to the surfacing that will be necessary in the forthcoming
year. The continual increase in the last few years of the number of foreign automobiles
visiting this Province may be taken as an indication of the success of our highway programme.
DOMINION-PROVINCIAL WORKS AGREEMENTS.
The employment situation showed improvement over the previous year, notwithstanding
which public works for the stimulation of employment and industry was still necessary, and,
accordingly, agreements were entered into with the Dominion Government under the
" Dominion Unemployment and Agricultural Assistance Act, 1937," providing for contributions from the Federal Government towards the cost of undertaking construction and employment work on certain schedule projects.
The agreement, dated June 11th, 1937, provided for the expenditure of not more than
$1,000,000 on a 50-50 basis for the construction and improvement of main highways, which
embraced twenty-three different projects. There was also available the sum of $43,921.56,
being the amount carried forward from the previous year's agreement for continuation of
last year's projects.
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.
An expenditure of $272,833 was made in the continuation of the construction, improvement, and hard-surfacing of " Roads to National Parks " in accordance with the agreement
entered into with the Dominion Government, dated June 27th, 1936.
RELIEF OF SINGLE HOMELESS MEN.
A large number of single homeless men and transients migrate to the Pacific Coast each
winter to take advantage of the milder climate. Many of these men are in needy circumstances and it is necessary to provide for their assistance. Accordingly, an agreement, dated
November 16th, 1937, was entered into by the Department of Labour for an equal division
by the Dominion Government and the Province of the cost of certain forestry development
and one highway-construction project. The highway-construction project was under the direction of this Department and consisted of reconstructing and widening a portion of the West
Coast Road in Esquimalt District. Under this scheme, 627 men were given relief on this
project during the period November 26th, 1937, to April 12th, 1938, and a total of 36,913
man-days were given.    The men received $2.40 per day for an eight-hour day, less 75 cents X 4

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. Upon his release from camp he was
given deferred-pay coupons representing the total credit he had accumulated while in camp.
These coupons were redeemable at certain specified post-offices throughout the Province at
$4 weekly.
HIGHWAY-CONSTRUCTION.
Progress was made in extending the Hope-Princeton Road and also the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway. Considerable improvement and reconstruction was undertaken on the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, including reconstruction of several bridges. The construction, grading, and surfacing of the approaches to the Pattullo Bridge were completed.
SURFACING.
New bituminous surfacing carried out during the year comprised 112 miles of mulch
and 188 miles of spray-coat work. In addition to this, new work consisting of improvement
of and renewal of existing surface was carried out on 228 miles of road. Further details
of the surfacing programme are given in the Surfacing Engineer's report.
CONTRACTS.
Considerable contract-work was awarded during the year in connection with the reconstruction of the main highways, and accompanying this report is a list of tenders received
and contracts awarded.

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 $2,404,311 (exclusive of bituminous surfacing), as compared with $1,774,848 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.
FLOODS.
The past year was remarkably free of serious floods in comparision with the year 1936-37,
the only flood of consequence being in the Squamish Valley, and the damage suffered was
g t- SNOW-REMOVAL.
Generally speaking, the snowfall was normal with the exception of certain parts of the
Columbia River Valley and South Cariboo, where it was exceptionally heavy. Taking the
Province as a whole, 8,245 miles of roads were kept open by snow-ploughing, involving a
total of 102,754 snow-plough miles at an average cost of $18.94 per mile kept open. During
the previous year 7,955 miles of roads were ploughed at an average cost of $23.46 per mile
kept open. REPORT OF CHIEF ENGINEER.

HIGHWAY SIGNS.
The practice of furthering the safety of the travelling public by the intelligent and careful erection of highway signs was continued, and, as far as funds were available, new standard
metal signs were erected in place of the old wooden type.
ROAD MILEAGE.
Elsewhere in this report will be found the usual statement of mileage and type of construction of Provincial highways. The total of 20,415 miles shows an increase of 244
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. It will be noted that the Provincial highway system includes 514 miles of
municipal highways, classified as arterial, primary, or secondary.
The total mileage may be classified as follows:— Miles
Trunk and main highways        6,222
Local roads      5,189
Settlement, industrial, and mining roads     9,004
Total
20,415
In addition, there are 10,149 miles of trails on the registers, of which 5,672 miles are
classed as mining-trails.
MINING-ROADS.
Again, during the fiscal year 1937-38, an agreement was entered into with the Dominion
Government whereby, in collaboration with the Department of Mines and Resources, Ottawa,
assistance was given in providing transportation facilities into mining areas. Total expenditures were $330,562 under the Dominion-Provincial Works Agreement and $57,662 from Vote
117, " 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. ,", _ .  __,   „„
PATTULLO BRIDGE.
During the year one of the outstanding events from an engineering point of view was the
opening of the new Pattullo Bridge, which was a modern and vital link in the Trans-Canada
and Pacific Highways. The bridge is of the most modern construction and embodies the
latest practice in bridge design. It is lighted by sodium vapour lamps, and its opening
greatly relieved the congestion in the traffic flow over the Fraser River into the Cities of
Vancouver and New Westminster. From the opening date to March 31st, 1938, a total of
517,125 motor-vehicles crossed the bridge, and the revenue collected during the same period

Classified as primary      59.92
Classified as secondary  142.51
Total  514.38
Such changes in classified highways as were made were duly reported in The British
Columbia Gazette, as required by the Statutes.
HIGHWAY TRANSPORT BRANCH.
On February 1st, an Administrator was appointed to take complete charge of the Highway Transport Branch, with head office in the Hall Building, Vancouver, and a full report
of the Administrator for the fiscal year 1937-38 is attached.
GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS.
The report of the Chief Architect attached hereto outlines the activities of the Architectural Branch of the Department.
MISCELLANEOUS.
The Thirteenth Field Staff Convention was held in Victoria during the month of January,
1938. The convention was an undoubted success, as it gave the field officials from widely
scattered parts an opportunity of discussing matters of importance personally and, in view
of the discussions entered into, the work and correspondence with the field officials has been
considerably expedited and improved.
Several new sections were added to the Manual of Instructions, and other parts revised
and brought up to date.
The work of revising the Department's standard specifications with respect to " highway
and construction " and " bituminous surfacing " was completed. Correspondence comprised
56,656 inward and outward letters. 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.
I have pleasure in submitting the Annual Report of the Architectural Branch for the
fiscal year 1937-38.
Hospitals.—The Branch has been asked by various hospital boards to prepare preliminary
plans for projected hospital construction at various points, the two major programmes being
the Vancouver General Hospital and New Westminster Royal Columbian Hospital. Considerable amount of work has been done on the former and consultations with Dr. Walsh,
Medical Consultant from Chicago, have taken place.
Sketch-plans have been provided for other hospital projects, as follows: Salmon Arm,
Kamloops, Chilliwack, and Port Alberni. Complete plans and specifications have been provided for new hospitals at Prince Rupert, Rossland, and Quesnel. REPORT OF BRIDGE ENGINEER. X 7
Government Buildings.—The reconstruction of two buildings at the New Westminster
Mental Hospital was completed during this period, as well as a new Nurses' Home at Essondale;   at the same point a new sewage-disposal scheme was completed.
A new Borstal Unit in Vancouver was taken over and a start made on the reconstruction
and renovation.
The following other buildings were erected during the year: Mining Recorder's office,
residence, and lockup at Barkerville; lockup at Port Alberni; Government Offices at New
Denver, replacing those destroyed by fire; toll-house at Spuzzum; toll-gates at Pattullo
Bridge; shops building and boat-house for Forestry Branch at Nelson; auditorium at Provincial Home for Incurables at Marpole. Sketch-plans were also made for the new laboratory
building at the University of B.C.
Schools.—Plans and specifications for a junior high school at Quesnel were provided and
for sundry standard school-houses of various sizes at different points in the Province. Owing
to the change in the curriculum of the Education Department, this Branch has pioneered the
planning of various junior high schools and has given assistance to other architects along
these lines and checked over and assisted them in their planning.
Repairs.—While the funds allocated for repairs and maintenance to public buildings are
still short of requirements, yet good work has been accomplished by endeavouring, where
possible at various buildings, to concentrate and completely renovate the building, particularly
externally, where the greatest amount of money should be expended to safeguard the structure. Much work along these lines has been done at the Court-house, Vancouver, Government
House and Parliament Buildings, besides other smaller centres.
Owing to the overcrowding in our Provincial hospitals, money that under ordinary circumstances would be used for the above purpose has had to be utilized to obtain more bed
accommodation and equipment to care for the additional patients. This only prolongs the
period when these repairs will have to be taken care of at a much greater expense.
I wish to express to you, the District Engineers, and the staff and tradesmen under the
direction of this Branch, my appreciation for the co-operation and assistance rendered to me
during this period.
Hy. Whittaker,
Chief Architect.
REPORT OF BRIDGE ENGINEER.
Conditions for bridge-work were unusually favourable. Flood levels were generally
below normal, extraordinary freshets occurred on only one stream—namely, the Squamish
River in Lillooet District. This is in striking contrast to the previous year. As a consequence no serious flood-damage resulted.
Capable bridgemen were available in nearly all districts who were prepared to and did
render very good service indeed.
The prices of structural materials were rather high during the first eight months, but
these eased off towards the end of the year. Deliveries for the most part were prompt. Some
of the local mills fell down in this respect, however, causing considerable expense on account
of delays.
Since bridge funds were limited, it was possible to carry out only a few major renewals.
Work was, therefore, confined to the most urgent minor renewals and to extensive repairs and
reinforcements. Special attention was given to renewals of structures on highways that
were being reconstructed and surfaced. Culverts and fills were substituted in many cases,
and permanent bridges of greater capacity put in when culverts were considered inadequate.
The bridge problem continues to become more serious on account of the steadily increasing gross weight of vehicles and volume of traffic. Furthermore, this heavy traffic is not
confined to the main roads by any means. The structures on the secondary roads would,
under normal conditions, be safe perhaps for several years, but the moment heavy logging or
mining trucks start to operate their weaknesses soon become apparent, and expenditure of
funds that would otherwise be available for more important structures is generally made
imperative. X 8 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1937-38.
The programme of renewals included the following: The Landry crossing of Pouce Coupe
River in Peace River District; the Meaniskinisht Bridge and Driftwood Creek in Skeena
District; the McEvoy, Priestley, and Sinkut Bridges in Omineca; Stone Creek in Prince
George; Canyon Creek and Knife Creek in Cariboo; and Stawamus Creek in Lillooet. A
very large programme of repairs was carried out, particularly in the matter of renewal of
floor systems.
Three new railway grade separations were constructed—namely, Red Gap at Nanoose
and Dodds at Duncan, on Vancouver Island;   and Craigellachie in Revelstoke District.
On November 15th, 1937, the new Pattullo Bridge over the Fraser River at New Westminster was opened to traffic with due ceremony. It had been about two and a half years
under construction; naturally this Department was glad that the strain which a project of
this kind always imposes was finally relieved. So much has been published in the Public
Works Journal, in engineering journals, and newspapers that a description of the structure
is unnecessary here. Suffice it to say that it is the largest bridge so far erected by this
Department; not only so, but the difficulties overcome, particularly with the subaqueous-work,
were such as to place the project among the major works so far carried out in British
Columbia.
It is a pleasure to again record the unfailing support of Headquarters staff and faithful
service of the men in the field. The quality of work being done is steadily improving, as it
should. This can be attributed, in part at least, to a closer adherence to plans, specifications,
and instructions.

Bridge Engineer.
REPORT OF THE MECHANICAL SUPERINTENDENT.
INSPECTION OF EQUIPMENT AND MACHINERY.
The condition of the equipment and machinery owned and operated by the Department
is remarkably good, when it is taken into consideration that most of the major units are close
to ten years old and have been employed practically to capacity, often under unfavourable
conditions. A number of the older trucks were replaced and the snow-ploughing equipment
was greatly augmented last year. The equipment has been maintained as far as possible in
first-class working condition, but in sectors where hard-surfacing of highways has been in
progress modern pneumatic-tired equipment will be required in place of the crawler-type now
in use. The truck-type snow-ploughs purchased proved to be efficient wherever used, although
the snowfall last winter, generally speaking, was below normal.
The general improvement in repair-shop practice, which is reflected in the good condition
of the equipment, has been well maintained. Valuable repair-shop equipment and tools have
been purchased and installed, and this, together with better organization in the shops and
supervision of operators in the field, should make for better and more economical repairs in
future.
Every district in the Province was visited during 1937-38, and detailed reports submitted
as a result of the inspections conducted.
The undernoted new units were purchased during 1937-38, in addition to equipment
installed in garages and repair-shops: 78 trucks, 27 snow-ploughs, 10 automobiles, 3 hand-
spraying outfits, 4 distributer-tanks, 1 power-roller, 1 portable dryer, 1 asphalt plant, 1 Diesel
tractor, 1 angledozer, 1 pull-grader, 2 compressors, 2 Gurney scales  (Pattullo Bridge).
EQUIPMENT-SHEDS AND REPAIR-SHOPS.
With the exception of making provision for materials for equipment-sheds to store the
surfacing equipment at Cassidy, V.I., there is no alteration in this situation since last report. REPORT OF SURFACING ENGINEER.

POWER-FERRIES.
The undernoted power-ferries were inspected and reported on: Kelowna-Westbank,
Francois Lake, 12-Mile, 24-Mile, Sorrento-Scotch Creek, Agassiz-Rosedale, Castlegar,
Shuswap Lake, Nelson, Ladner-Woodward, Harrop-Longbeach, Taylor Flats, Kootenay Lake,
Needles-Fauquier, and Creston.
All ferries operated subject to the provisions of the " Canada Shipping Act " have been
inspected and certified by the Dominion Steamship Inspector.
A new ferry was provided at Creston, on the Kootenay River, replacing the old one. The
original plans called for a power cable-ferry, but were later altered to a side-wheel paddle
type. The necessary towers to carry overhead cables, travellers, etc., were constructed. The
ferry was powered with a Model 1-30 McCormick-Deering Industrial Tractor unit with special
transmission and other adjustments, and this unit has given satisfaction.
A new scow was provided for the Harrop-Longbeach service, the machinery from the
old ferry being transferred and installed.
Work was commenced on a new ferry to replace the Castlegar Ferry and was still in
progress at the close of fiscal year 1937-38.

City of New Westminster. In Engineering District No. 1, 6.25 miles of road were newly
oil-sprayed.
Maintenance of all bituminous-surfaced roads was attended to. A great improvement in
the maintenance effort was noticeable.    Repair-work was done promptly and neatly.
The total expenditure on new work and resurfacing was $1,007,004.46, and on mainte-
. nance and spraying oil the expenditure was $57,880.23.

REPORT OF ADMINISTRATOR, HIGHWAY TRANSPORT BRANCH.
A change was made in the administration of Part V. of the " Highway Act" by the
appointment, on February 1st, 1938, of the undersigned as Administrator. The decision to
create a branch of the Department in charge of a full-time Administrator was made as a
result of the increasing importance of this section of the departmental activities.
During the licence-year 1937 a total of 11,148 carrier's licences were issued, these being
classified as shown by the statement accompanying this report. The above total shows an
increase in the number of licences issued of 42 per cent, over the previous year. The regulations were altered and reprinted under date of April 1st, 1938, the principal changes being-
necessary alterations to definitions; the provision for a special form of licence for vehicles
employed by the Provincial Government; amplification of the scope of special permits under
Regulation 3; clarification of the regulation respecting fees; provision for changing the conditions of licences;  and provision for the adoption of a standard bill of lading.
The new arrangements for the administration of Part V. of the " Highway Act " made it
possible to institute a system of regular hearings of applications before the Advisory Board.
These hearings are open to such members of the public as may be interested, and a notice of
the matters to be dealt with is posted in advance on a notice-board in the public space of the
office of the Branch.
The personnel of the Advisory Board consists of the Administrator as chairman, with two
members of the former Board, Messrs. W. F. McClintock and Elmer Johnston, as members.

Administrator.
DISTRICT REPORTS.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 1   (VANCOUVER ISLAND, THE ISLANDS, AND
NORTHERLY PART OF MACKENZIE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, H. L. Swan, Victoria.
Alberni-Nanaimo Electoral District.
General.—The year has shown a marked change for the better in general conditions,
indicated by increased building activity and development of lands adjacent to the highways.
Employment conditions have also improved, the number of persons working for relief having
diminished at all points, and in several instances disappeared entirely. These remarks apply
also to Cowichan-Newcastle District.
Operations.—Outstanding was the rapid development of the Zeballos mineral area on the
west coast of the Island. A new town has grown there in the few months since a subdivision
was made for the purpose. This town is situated on tide-water at the terminus of 6 miles of
road which was completed during the year and which penetrates to the heart of the mineral
area. A wharf was constructed to provide accommodation for deep-sea shipping, with ample
depth of water at all tides.
An undertaking of note was a contract let for reconstruction of 1.8 miles of the Canadian Highway to improve alignment and grades on the Mountain section near Mount Arrow-
smith. Other projects include gravelling of 6 miles of highway near Tofino, reconstruction
of 1 mile of South Wellington Road, and improvement of 4 miles of Central Lake Road and
2 miles of Beaver Creek Road, near Alberni.
A dangerous level railway crossing was eliminated by construction of an overhead bridge
near Nanoose.
Bituminous  Surfacing.—Bituminous  mulch  and  spray-coat work was  carried  out on .
Alberni and Port Alberni Classified Highways, Canadian Highway.
Cowichan-Newcastle Electoral District.
General.—Employment and general conditions were improved, as reported for Alberni
District. DISTRICT REPORTS. X 11
Operations.—A contract was let for construction of a diversion of the Island Highway,
5.6 miles in length, which will relieve the traffic congestion at Cowichan Bay and eliminate
the Buena Vista hill. This latter work was not completed at March 31st. Other projects
include improvement of Vz mile of the Island Highway north of Ladysmith.
.   A dangerous level railway crossing was eliminated by construction of an overhead bridge
1 mile north of Duncan.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Bituminous mulch and spray-coat work was carried out on the
Island Highway, Cowichan Lake Road, and other roads.
Weather Conditions.—The year was not a good construction period. Heavy rains were
frequent from August to Christmas, and snow was plentiful in January and February but
not notable for heavy falls. During Christmas holidays snow-ploughing was continuous.
These remarks apply also to Alberni District.
Rains interfered considerably with the progress of construction of the Cowichan Bay
Diversion.
Comox Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Improvement.—On the Island Highway, immediately south
of Campbell River, 6.5 miles were graded and prepared for surfacing, together with the construction and improvement of 1 mile at Fanny Bay, under contract, and 2.2 miles of the new
work on this highway at Buckley Bay were completed by day-labour.
Bridges.—No. 42 Dry Creek Bridge at Hardy Bay:   A 60-foot King-truss span was built.
Surfacing.—Seven miles of mulch were laid on the Island Highway immediately south of
Campbell River. Fourteen miles of the Island Highway between Parksville and Courtenay
were sprayed. Additional surfacing-work included 2.2 miles on Hilliers Cross Road, 1.7 miles
on Anderton Road, 1.7 miles on Lazo Road (double-flushed), 1.6 miles on Crescent Road
(double-flushed), 2.5 miles on Alert Bay Road oiled, 1.5 miles Campbell River to Campbellton
oiled.
Ferries.—Denman Island Ferry operated throughout the year under contract with
Messrs. Baikie Bros., Denman Island.
Snow-removal.—During the period from December 25th, 1937, to the first week of March,
1938, there was a considerable amount of snow to be contended with. During this time 990
miles of road were kept open, which totalled 4,787.5 snow miles.
Esquimalt Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Improvement.—One and three-quarter miles of standard
highway on alignment were constructed from Mile 17.3, Island Highway, eliminating a large
amount of curvature and reducing grades. On the West Coast Road, between Muir Creek
and Coal Creek, 1.5 miles were revised and constructed to standard width, eliminating some
very faulty alignment. The through cut, eliminating the extreme curvature around Coal
Creek Hill on west side, was completed and gravelled; 2 miles of the West Coast Road
between Muir Creek and Jordan River were widened to standard width; 24 acres along the
sides of the highway were slashed and burned; 4.95 miles of 5-foot woven-wire fence erected;
'594 lineal feet of concrete culvert-pipe were laid; 3,400 cubic yards of screened and 1,400
cubic yards of gravel, crushed to 1% inches, were stock-piled.
An extension, 0.33 mile in length, on Shirley Road was constructed. General widening,
clearing brush, etc., carried out over all major roads.
Bridges.—No. 12-120, Goldstream, on the Island Highway, was completed and painted.
Details of this bridge are given in report for 1936-37.
Surfacing.—New work: 1.05 miles Island Highway (Mile 17.4 to Mile 18.45) were surfaced with plant-mix mulch; 3.20 miles on Old Trunk Road (Shawnigan to Cobble Hill)
were surfaced with double flush-coat. Resurfacing: 3.61 miles on Island Highway between
Miles 12.5 and 16.5 were resurfaced with road-mix mulch and seal-coated; 12.35 miles were
resurfaced on various roads, chiefly single flush-coat.
Snow-removal.—Light fall in November; heavy fall commenced on December 24th; intermittent storms till 10th January; another light fall occurred in February. In all 749 snow-
plough miles were covered by the various units. X 12 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1937-38.
Miscellaneous.—Nine thousand lineal feet of standard guard-fence were erected along the
Island Highway, Malahat Drive, and 1,688 lineal feet erected along the West Coast Road.
Eleven miles of preliminary line and 2.5 miles of preliminary location were surveyed
between Rosamund (8-Mile) Creek (7% miles west of Jordan River) and Port Renfrew.
One-quarter mile extension on Silver Mine Trail was constructed. Clearing and cleaning
out carried out over 7 miles of ordinary trails.
Unemployment Relief.—The direct relief situation showed considerable improvement;
some 1,026 individuals being afforded 5,811 man-days work as against 1,607 individuals being
afforded 9,171 man-days in 1936-37, and 2,207 individuals and 13,098 man-days work in 1935-
36. The relief camps, which closed down in June, 1937, were opened again in November, 1937,
and closed in April, 1938. Some 628 men were afforded employment on the deferred-pay
system.
Islands Electoral District.
Highway Improvement.—Along West Saanich Road 1.2 miles were widened and re-
ditched. Widening and slashing was carried out on 35 miles of local road. Forty-two culverts were installed.
Maintenance of Highways.—Usual cleaning out of ditches, brush-slashing, weed-cutting,
etc., carried out on the various roads.
Surfacing.—New work consisted of 1 mile of flush-coat on Saltspring Island, and 1.10
miles of flush-coat connecting up paved portions of streets in Sidney; 8.67 miles was resurfaced on various roads.
Snow-removal.—Heavy during latter part of December and first two weeks in January;
light falls in November and February;   in all some 1,330 snow-plough miles cleared.   "
Surveys.—The more important roads on Saltspring Island were traversed so as to make
gazetting possible.    Cut-off from Cusheon Lake to Stewart Road was located.
Trails.—No new construction.    Seven miles of existing trails were cleaned out.
Unemployment Relief.—A considerable decrease was shown in 1937-38 as against 1936-37.
In 1936-37, 1,238 individuals were afforded 7,382 man-days work, as against 792 individuals
being afforded 4,863 man-days work in 1937-38.
Mackenzie Electoral District (Northerly Part).
On the Mainland, Murray Road was cleared and graded 0.30 mile, and clearing and
gravelling was done on Joncas Road. Three miles of the Thunder Bay Road were widened
and gravelled and improvements were made to Claridge Road and Joyce Road.
On Texada Island, work done on Central Road included six new culverts, 2 miles of gravel
resurfacing between Miles 9 and 12, and elimination of a bad curve at Mile 2. Blubber Bay
Road was gravelled between Mile-posts 3 and 5; one new culvert was constructed. Gravelling
was done between Mile 9 and Mile 10 on Gillies Bay Road, and widening between Miles 5
and 6.
On Lasqueti Island, 5 miles of gravelling was done. All roads which were washed out
during the flood of November, 1936, at Bella Coola were relocated and gravelled; 400 lineal
feet of wire brush and heavy slide-rock were used for repair of washout below Canoe Crossing.
The brush mattress at Store Branch, Hagensborg, was reconstructed 910 feet long, 100 feet
double mattress, the remainder single.
A total of 2.65 miles of road were given bituminous-treatment and 5 miles of semi-
recapping.
Saanich Electoral District.
Highway Improvement.—Improvement of shoulders, widening at bad corners, etc., was
carried out on East and West Saanich Roads. Two miles of local roads were regravelled and
corners widened.
Surfacing.—Two and a quarter miles of widening shoulders, paving improved corners,
etc., carried out with plant-mixed mulch; minor shoulder-widening carried out over some
3 miles. DISTRICT REPORTS. X 13
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.
Construction.—Reconstruction-work on the Dewdney Trunk Road No. 19r (in the City
of Port Moody) was carried out under contract. Two heavy side-cuts were taken out and the
material deposited in adjoining fills; one bridge was demolished and the gap filled. This
work brought another mile of this highway to a satisfactory alignment and grade. An
appropriation from B.C. Loan was expended on the Central Arterial Highway extending the
construction-work which has been in abeyance for some years.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The previous year's reconstruction-work on Dewdney Trunk
Road No. 19r was given a double spray-surface treatment of asphalt and it has stood up well
under the heavy traffic to which this road is subjected.
Bridges.—The steel highway bridge over the Coquitlam River was scraped and given two
coats of paint. Wet weather prevented the application of the final coat, which will be applied
early next year.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was light during the winter and no difficulty was experienced in keeping all roads open. The new truck snow-plough stationed at Coquitlam proved
very satisfactory in handling the work in that vicinity.
Dewdney Electoral District.
Construction.—A realignment of the Lougheed Highway No. 26r (Kent Municipality) for
a distance of 0.75 mile was constructed under contract. This is an improvement which is
much appreciated by the travelling public.
River-bank Protection.—Five additional pile groynes were driven for this purpose, continuing the work which has been in progress for two years on the Fraser River east of
Agassiz.    Twelve hundred cubic yards of rock were placed as an added protection.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Seal coats on existing mulch surfaces were sprayed on 11.5 miles
of the Lougheed Highway No. 21r, No. 22r, and No. 23r. A double spray asphaltic surface
was laid on the Lougheed Highway No. 26r throughout. This completed the surfacing on the
above highway and there is now a hard-surfaced road from Vancouver to Harrison Hot
Springs and to the Agassiz Ferry Landing.
Relief Camps Nos. 203, 226, and 227.—These camps were in operation at the beginning of
the fiscal year, and continued until the middle of July when they were closed down. The men
were employed on reconstruction-work on Agassiz Mountain (Lougheed Highway No. 26r),
and a marked improvement on the road at that point is noted.
Snow-removal.—From Deroche west the highway was easily kept open, but east of that
point, especially on the Agassiz Flats, heavy snowfall, accompanied by high winds during the
last half of December, made it impossible to keep the highway open continuously. Two snow-
ploughs mounted on tractors were in operation twenty-four hours a day during this storm
and traffic was able to move each day at certain intervals, except on one occasion when the
highway was blocked for twenty-four hours.
Mackenzie Electoral District (Southerly Part).
Highway Construction and Improvements.—The major work undertaken this year was
the continued construction of the Sechelt-Pender Harbour Road at the westerly end around
the head of Pender Harbour, where 4.07 miles were constructed between Nor West Bay and
Half moon Bay; 3.8 miles were reconstructed to standard width with improvements to grade
and alignment, and 4.8 miles were given a gravel surface. This work was all carried out
with relief-camp labour.
In the Gibsons Landing area, 1.55 miles of local roads were constructed and 1.75 miles
reconstructed, chiefly by local relief labour. New gravel surfacing was laid for 0.80 mile
and gravel renewal on the roads throughout the district for a total distance of 3.8 miles was
carried out.
Bridges.—Three single-span bridges were constructed on the new section of road
around the head of Pender Harbour so that it could be opened to traffic.    Steinbrunner Bridge X 14 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1937-38.
was replaced with a standard pile trestle and five other bridges were put in good repair and
three were converted to culverts and filled in.
Miscellaneous.—All roads and trails throughout the district were well maintained, with
minor improvements to grades and alignment being carried out at various points. Two and a
half miles of road were given a spray-coat of tarphalt in the various business sections
throughout the district to eliminate the dust nuisance with good results. Ditching and draining was further extended on all important roads, as this class of work lends itself to hand-
labour for men working out relief.
North Vancouver Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Improvements.—The east end of Dollarton Highway was
double flush-coated for a distance of 1.83 mile and on No. 66a Marine Drive, 1 mile long, the
berms were built up and widened. The width of the pavement was extended 2 feet, giving a
20-foot roadway. The excessive camber on this section was taken out and the whole surfaced with a coat of fine premixed mulch.
The ditches on Dollarton Highway were widened and deepened for a distance of 3 miles,
the brush cut and burned 8 feet beyond the ditch-line, and the berms built up to conform
with the pavement.
General.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads and trails. Four hundred
and eighty lineal feet of standard guard-fence were erected at danger-points on Marine Drive
and Dollarton Highway, and 0.25 mile was flush-coated on Bowen Island Trunk Road.
Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Improvements.—Major improvements were made to the
Theological Road, 0.38 mile being entirely reconstructed. A 6-inch crushed-rock base was laid
and consolidated; this was covered with a 2-inch mulch-cap and seal-coated. In order to have
this road conform to other roads in this area, 4,000 lineal feet of concrete curb were constructed;   a section 0.10 mile long, without curbs, received a double flush-coat.
Further protection-work was carried out at the Spanish Banks section with the erection
of additional groynes and filling in the slope with 20,000 cubic yards of sand. This work is
now completed for a distance of 2,656 lineal feet along the sea-front and is proving very
effective.
Flush-coating was carried out on Imperial Street and Twenty-ninth Avenue for 0.38 mile.
General.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads, and considerable patching
had to be done with pre-mix and hand-mixed materials on the old section of Marine Drive and
Imperial Street. Imperial Street was reditched for the entire length and new take-off ditches
constructed. Approximately 1 mile of guard-fence was painted the standard colours and 1
mile of centre line marked on Marine Drive. The beach at Kitsilano Indian Reserve was
thoroughly cleaned up and all squatters removed. The underbrush and old logs cut and
burned, trails constructed through the reserve and all holes filled in.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 3   (DELTA, CHILLIWACK, NEW WESTMINSTER,
AND PARTS OF DEWDNEY AND YALE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, H. C. Anderson, New Westminster.
New Westminster Electoral District.
The major work in this district was the completion of the Pattullo Bridge over the
Fraser River at New Westminster, half of which lies in the above electoral district.
There was also a considerable amount of work carried out in the surfacing of the
necessary approaches, which involved the laying of 10,822 square yards of penetration
macadam.
Delta Electoral District.
Construction.—The most important highway work carried out in this district during
the year was the completion of the approaches to the new Pattullo Bridge. A four-lane
highway was constructed, using part of the original pavement for a distance of 1 mile
south from the bridge. This was surfaced with an asphaltic-mulch pavement. In the
construction of this grade it was necessary to pave over a peat bog which had not been DISTRICT REPORTS.
X 15
consolidated by traffic, and stabilization of subgrade was carried out, using emulsified asphalt.
The base was stabilized to a depth of 8 inches below the finished surface and has proved to
be very satisfactory. To provide for an improved approach for Scott Road traffic, % mile
of new grade was constructed from the Old Yale Road northerly to the Trans-Canada
Highway, thus eliminating four right-angle turns. It is regretted it was found necessary to
abandon an undercrossing of the B.C. Electric Railway and replace same with a level
crossing. However, the new level crossing is being protected by the latest type of automatic
electric signal.
Approximately % mile of new road was constructed on the Peace Arch Highway.
With this work, approximately 5.6 miles of this highway is completed with the exception of
gravelling. Extensive surveys were undertaken during the year and complete plans prepared for the extension of the Peace Arch Highway from Elgin to the Trans-Canada Highway,
a distance of 8 miles, to provide an alternative route to the International Boundary. The
new route will shorten the distance between New Westminster and Blaine by 2% miles.
Trans-Canada Highway, 5-13-Mile 79 :   1937 construction and 1937 asphaltic-mulch surfacing.
Surfacing.—In addition to the mulch surfacing laid on the reconstructed approach to the
Pattullo Bridge, 4 miles of flush-coating was carried out on the Aldergrove-Bellingham
Highway No. 77r; 4.5 miles on No. 5 Road (on Lulu Island). One mile of the Scott Road
south of Kennedy Station was resurfaced. Subsequent to classification as secondary, the
Department, in conjunction with the municipalities, surfaced 2.01 miles in Delta Municipality
and 4.03 miles in Langley Municipality. This surfacing-work was carried out on main
municipal roads which are carrying a large volume of intermunicipal traffic.
Snow-removal.—Four new truck ploughs were purchased for new truck units bought
during the year, and with this equipment 60 miles of trunk roads were ploughed at an
average cost of $6 per mile.
Bridges.—Excepting Pattullo Bridge, the construction of which was not under my
supervision, the chief bridge-work was the replacing with pile trestle and steel I-beams three
King trusses at Canoe Pass. General repairs were carried out on all other bridges throughout the district.
Ferries.—The Ladner-Woodward and Barnston Island Ferries continued to be operated
satisfactorily. At the Ladner Landing of the Ladner-Woodward Ferry the seasonal silting
of the Fraser River continued to cause trouble and delays.
General.—Extensions of centre-line marking on the Trans-Canada Highway has found
favour with the travelling public.    Much study was given to the proper placing of suitable X 16 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1937-38.
traffic and warning signs on the Pattullo Bridge and on the approaches thereto. The
installation of weigh-scales at the southerly approach to the bridge has proved a sound
investment. It is now possible expeditiously to check vehicles suspected of being overloaded,
and generally control what was hitherto a difficult situation.
Chilliwack Electoral District.
Construction.—A section of the Trans-Canada Highway east of Rosedale, 1.2 miles in
length, was reconstructed on new grade and alignment to connect up with work carried out
during the previous year. Work which had been commenced in 1936-37 on the Abbotsford-
Clayburn section of the Huntingdon-Mission Highway was completed.
Surfacing.—Approximately 13 miles of surfacing were laid during the year, the principal
work being 10 miles on the Trans-Canada Highway east of Rosedale. One mile of asphaltic
mulch was also laid between Matsqui Village and Mission Bridge. A double flush-coat
treatment was given the Rosedale Ferry Road.
Snow-removal.—Ninety-one miles of main trunk roads were ploughed at an average
cost of $16.50 per mile. While the snow was not so deep or heavy as in previous winters, it
was possible with the improved equipment available to keep trunk and main highways open
at all times. The use of snow-fencing to combat drift conditions, which was started during
the previous year, was continued, approximately 2 miles of fence being in use. Where,
previous to using snow-fencing, it had been found necessary to use heavy tractor-plough
equipment, it is now possible to keep the same sections open with light truck ploughs. The
use is being continued of lath interwoven with wire type of fence strung on short sections
of 20-lb. railway-steel.    The fencing is all treated with creosote.
Bridges.—Continuing the policy of eliminating as many trestle bridges as feasible, two
structures were replaced by culverts and fills. At Wilson Creek Bridge on the Trans-Canada
Highway No. 8r, two lines of 60-inch reinforced-concrete pipes were laid, and the completed
fill subfaced with"mulch. Three lines of 24-inch concrete pipe were laid at the Bridal Falls
Bridge site on the Hope-Rosedale Road. The usual maintenance was undertaken on several
bridges. Bituminous wearing surfaces were applied to the Sumas River Bridge on the Old
Yale Road No. 61r and to the Cheam Bridge on the Hope-Rosedale Road.
Ferries.—Excepting two days at the end of December, 1937, when the ferry was obliged
to cease operations owing to theSRosedale Ferry Road being closed by snow-drifts, the ferry
was satisfactorily maintained throughout the year. The Rosedale approaches to the Agassiz-
Rosedale Ferry were materially improved by the construction of a gravel fill.
River-bank Protection.—Before the spring freshet, the rock mattress at Rosedale was
continued for an additional 448 feet. A 60-foot break in previous protection-work was also
repaired. The work was done by the Chilliwack Municipality at a cost of approximately
$12,000, the municipal, Provincial, and Federal authorities sharing equally in the expenditure. To complete the protection-work there remains 1 mile of river-bank which should be
protected if the previous years' substantial investments are to be adequately safeguarded.
Such remedial works not only protect the Rosedale Ferry Landing, but also remove the
possibility of danger from flooding of the Rosedale Ferry Road in event of the river dykes
not holding at high water.
Every year further improvements are effected in clearing channels and reinforcing the
protection-work on Vedder River.
Dewdney Electoral District  (Easterly Part).
Reconstruction-work was confined to the completion of the Hope-American Creek section
of the Trans-Canada Highway, 90 per cent, of which was finished by contract in 1936-37.
By day-labour forces, 2.5 miles of this road were gravel-resurfaced preparatory to the
application of a spray-coat. Exclusive of the 0.09 mile of the concrete paving (1,200 square
yards) at the Haig Overhead Bridge, the entire distance from Hope Bridge to the Dewdney-
Yale Boundary, 4.3 miles, was covered.
Bridges.—Excepting the completion of the overhead reinforced-concrete superstructure
at Haig, commenced the previous year, no new bridges were constructed. This splendid
structure, the first of its type to be erected in Western Canada, has been the subject of highly
favourable comments. DISTRICT REPORTS. X 17

Kamloops Electoral District.
Roads.—Maintenance repairs were carried out under favourable weather conditions.
The winter snow-plough work was moderately heavy.
Reconstruction-work was carried out on the Trans-Canada Highway west of Savona, on
the North Thompson Highway at Chinook Cove, and at Barriere.
Ten miles of bituminous-mulch paving were laid west of Savona, on the Trans-Canada
Highway; 15 miles of existing mulch paving were flush-coated; 3 miles of gravel road on the
North Thompson Highway were double flush-coated.
Bridges.—Many bridges were reinforced to carry heavy trucks and loads; many smaller
bridges were rebuilt. The season's run-off was moderate and did not cause any serious
damage to bridges.
Ferries.—A programme was started of replacing the reaction ferries on the North
Thompson River with the standard 5-ton reaction ferry. One was installed complete at
McLure and others are under construction.
Equipment.—Repairs to the equipment were carried out at the Kamloops garage. All
units were kept in a very satisfactory condition.
Yale Electoral District.
Maintenance.—The work of cleaning out the slides on the various main roads in the
spring was excessively heavy, approximately 10,000 cubic yards of material being moved off
the Cariboo Highway. Maintenance expenditure for the year was heavy, as it included the
cost of putting the various portions of the road selected for bituminous surfacing into shape
to receive the treatment. Considerable improvement was done by way of gravelling and
widening to Hope-Princeton Road from Mile 9 to Mile 24.
Construction.—One-half mile of rock construction on the Spences Bridge-Merritt Road
was completed from Camp 329 at Clapperton under the relief programme for single homeless
men.

Hope-Princeton Highway—A.M. Mine Road—Project No. 17m: Approximately 2 miles
new construction completed from Mile 24 towards Mile 28.5. Bridges from 9-Mile to 23-Mile
braced and stiffened with running deck.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The Cariboo Highway received a double flush-coat from Dewdney
boundary to Cisco Bridge approximately 61 miles. The existing mulch surface between
Cisco Bridge and Lytton received a single flush-coat. Between Spences Bridge and Lytton an
additional 4 miles of mulch were laid, leaving only % mile in this section unsurfaced. The
Spences Bridge-Merritt Road received a double flush-coat for the first 3 miles out of Spences
Bridge.
Traffic  Operation.—The  winter  was   mild  but  snowfall  was  heavy.    In  the   Merritt-
Princeton area and on the Cariboo Highway 5 feet of snow had to be moved in one snowfall.
Snowslides occurred on the Cariboo Highway which were removed.    All other roads were kept
open without undue trouble.

Maintenance of Roads.—Twenty-one culverts were replaced. Considerable gravelling
and widening was done on sections of the Revelstoke-Arrowhead Highway; 3% miles of the
Austrian Settlement Road were completely regravelled. The completed section of the Big
Bend Highway from Revelstoke to Goldstream, a distance of 58.5 miles, was turned over to
the Province for maintenance on December 1st by the Federal Department of Mines and
Resources.
The snowfall during the winter months was 174% inches. All main roads were ploughed
and kept open to traffic.
Maintenance of Bridges and Ferries.—Several structures were redecked. Two hundred
and forty feet of cribbing was constructed along Crawford Creek in an endeavour to divert
this stream, which has caused considerable damage during the high-water period.
New towers, foundations, and anchor-blocks were erected at 24-Mile Ferry, and a new
overhead cable installed. Construction of a new sheer-boom at 24-Mile Ferry commenced
but was incompleted as at March 31st.

North Okanagan Electoral District.
Construction.—The completion of the reconstruction of Miles 7.5 to 9.5 on the Vernon-
Kelowna Highway was carried out by contract and day-labour. This part of the road is
of standard width on good alignment; in the course of the work 20,000 cubic yards of rock
were moved.
Work of similar nature was completed by the Department's regular forces on the Vernon-
Armstrong Road, closing the gap between the surfaced portions, preparatory to completing
the bituminous surfacing between the two cities during the coming season.
Assistance was given in the construction and improvement of playing-grounds at Vernon,
Lumby, and Armstrong.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The surfacing-work was continued on the main highways. Six
miles of mulch paving were laid between Oyama and Armstrong, and 6 miles of road north
of Enderby were seal-coated.
Maintenance.—General maintenance operations were greatly assisted by work done in
lieu of payment of taxes, chiefly in gravelling and drainage. Some attention was given to
dust-laying in the populous centres at Lumby and Okanagan Landing.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal was extremely light, there being little drifting.

Construction.—Improved alignment and width were secured in Peachland by contract-
work on the main Okanagan Highway.    Two miles of the Vernon-Kelowna Road between   DISTRICT REPORTS. X 19
Petrie's Corner and Winfield have been standardized. The lacrosse play-ground at Kelowna
was greatly improved.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Six miles of mulch paving were laid between Summerland and
Peachland and some 8 miles of road in the orchard districts received oil-treatment as a dust-
layer.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal was facilitated by the addition of two truck ploughs to
the ordinary equipment.
Bridges.—A 30-foot I-beam steel span on concrete abutments was constructed over Deep
Creek on the Okanagan Highway. The approaches to the overhead crossing, north of
Kelowna, were completed and the structure opened to traffic.
Similkameen Electoral District.
Construction.—Three and one-half miles of construction on new location were carried out
within 10 per cent, of completion, by day-labour, between Miles 13.8 and 17.3 on the Penticton-
Oliver Road, and opened to traffic. At Bates Corner 0.60 mile of new construction was
completed, except for gravelling, eliminating two 90-degree bends. On the Hedley-Princeton
Road, 0.60 mile of reconstruction was completed, except for gravelling, eliminating further
bad features on this highway, where traffic is increasing since the closing of the Great
Northern Railway. This work was also a day-labour operation. Work was continued by
day-labour on the Hope-Princeton Highway on the 4.90 miles which were commenced the
previous year. New clearing and grubbing was completed on 1.8 miles and 1.2 miles of pilot-
road, 12 feet in width, constructed thereon.    The location survey was advanced 3 miles.
•    Bituminous Surfacing.—Six miles of mulch surface were laid northerly from Oliver, and
4.90 miles of major renewal was undertaken through Penticton.
Bridges.—China Creek Bridge was replaced by a concrete-arch culvert and embankment.
Maintenance.—The continued surfacing programme has resulted in releasing some funds
for gravel road maintenance.

District Engineer, E. S. Jones, Cranbrook.
Cranbrook Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Reconstruction.—An extension of the previous year's contract
was carried out on Project 16. The Moyie Lake section, which last year was reported as
50 per cent, completed, was finished during the season. This work eliminated a very
dangerous piece of road. The Moyie Narrows section, which consisted of a 0.7-mile diversion,
was also completed and gravelled. The Aldridge section was completely finished. The
Tochty section, which was started late in the season, was only 75 per cent, completed; this
work, however, will be completed in the early spring in time for next year's surfacing. In
all, a total of 11.57 miles was covered by this year's work on Project 16.
The sections of road which, the previous year had been reconstructed under Project 16,
were hard-surfaced during the season. This comprised the Lumberton section, the Ta Ta
Creek section and the Skookumchuck section for a distance of 15.4 miles. This work was all
carried out by contract. X 20 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1937-38.
The most important work carried out by the Department's forces was the reconstruction
of 4 miles west of Wardner on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway. This mileage was
completely reconstructed and hard-surfaced during the season. Three miles of hard-surface
were also laid down west of Curzon.
Maintenance.—Snow conditions during the winter were extremely bad, especially during
the latter part of the season, and it was only with the addition of the two blades for the light
trucks that main roads could be kept open to traffic.
Fernie Electoral District.
The Hosmer-Natal section, which was started last year, was completed this year and
gravelled by our own forces. This work practically completes the highway between Fernie
and Crowsnest, with the exception of the Crooked Bridge Diversion.
Another 12 miles of double flush-coat were laid down during the summer on the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway between Crowsnest and Galloway.
No important bridge-work was carried out during the season. All structures were kept
in repair.
Snow conditions duing the winter were practically the same as previous years.
Columbia Electoral District.
Reconstruction was carried out on 4.5 miles of the Kootenay-Columbia Highway between
Radium and Golden. This comprised a 2-mile section between Mile 9 and Mile 11 from
Golden and a 2.5-mile section at Edgewater. The former was reconstructed on new alignment and was carried out by day-labour; the latter was a new diversion and was carried out
under contract.
During the winter relief recipients were employed in widening a narrow portion of the
Trans-Canada Highway (Kicking Horse section) near Golden.
Snowfall was heavier than usual but all main roads were kept open throughout the
winter with little delay to traffic.
Nelson-Creston Electoral District.
Construction.—During the year considerable progress was made in standardizing the
main trunk roads in this district. On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway four projects
were carried out by day-labour while four sections were completed by contract. One
contract was completed on the Nelson-Nelway Road, while extensive gravelling was also
carried out by day-labour. On the Creston-Porthill Road 2 miles were standardized by day-
labour.
The above, combined with the new bituminous surfacing has made a very definite
improvement in the roads of this district. The Nelson-Castlegar section is standardized
from South Slocan to Castlegar and all but 5.2 miles surfaced with asphaltic-mulch. The
remainder of this road is now laid out for completion. The Nelson-Balfour Road was
given a double flush-coat for 10 more miles, so that the main roads out of Nelson are pleasant
to travel on.    The mud condition at Goatfell has been eliminated by gravelling.
The Nelson-Nelway Road has been improved to the point where cars can travel throughout the year without interruption by impassable mud, although trucks have still to be kept
off for short periods.
Mining-roads.—The mining-roads were definitely improved by gravel and all the main
trails opened up. The Goat River channel was excavated to protect the bridge. It now
appears that about 3,000 feet more will have to be improved.
Ferries.—New ferries were built and installed at Harrop, Longbeach, and Kootenay
River at Creston. Auxiliary ferries were operated at Porthill and Nick's Island during the
harvest season.
Maintenance.—Snow-ploughing was improved by better equipment and all roads were
kept open without trouble. The spring break-up occurred early in March, with the result
that most of the main roads were in good condition by March 31st.
Extensive use has been made of sand-pads in attempting to overcome bad water conditions. Good results have been obtained, and several sections of road where bad mud
conditions formerly existed are now insulated against capillary action. DISTRICT REPORTS. X 21
Rossland-Trail Electoral District.
The work carried out comprised a %-mile diversion at Sullivan Creek on the Castlegar-
Trail Road, and 2 miles of new construction on the Rossland-Patterson Road from the
International Boundary-line north; the former job was carried out by day-labour and the
latter by contract. In each case the old road was abandoned and a standard highway was
built on a new location with a much improved alignment, and it is the intention to put a
bituminous surface on this work during the coming season.
A number of smaller jobs were carried out earlier in the season, including the construction and gravelling of several roads on the Castlegar Townsite; reconstruction of a settlers'
road at Blueberry; the construction and gravelling of a road on the Warfield subdivision;
the reconstruction and gravelling of 1% miles of road on the Fruitvale subdivision, and,
later in the year, the gravelling of 5 miles on the Trail-Fruitvale Road.
In carrying out this construction-work a total of 64,000 cubic yards of material were
moved and 13,000 cubic yards of gravel used for surfacing.
Bridges.—A large number of bridges were repaired or reconstructed; among them the
Columbia River Bridge at Trail, using more than 130,000 F.B.M. Coast lumber, having the
stringers and decking replaced; this was carried out by local labour and was a very
satisfactory job. The stringer bridge at Sullivan Creek was replaced by a 5- by 6-foot
sawn timber box culvert, 130 feet long, containing 43,000 F.B.M.
Ferries.—Tenders were called for a new ferry-scow to replace the one operating at
Castlegar; this scow is now completed with the machinery installed and is ready to run
when the new ferry landings are completed. The new ferry-scow is 32 by 72 feet and will
handle eight cars. The ferry approaches at Castlegar are being replaced by new structures,
immediately above and parallel to the old ones; these new landings consist of cedar piling
with steel beams supporting heavy decking, which is capable of handling extremely heavy
loads.
Surfacing.—Four and three-quarter miles of bituminous-mulch surfacing were laid on
the Castlegar-Trail Road during the season, of which 2% miles were from Castlegar south
and 2 miles from Tadanac Municipality north; a %-inch repair-cap was placed on the old
pavement on the Schofield Highway from Warfield Railway Crossing to the Rossland City
limits. In addition, 7% miles of seal coat was put down on the mulch pavement between
Castlegar and Trail.
Maintenance.—A total of 132 miles of road were kept open to traffic by snow-ploughing,
entailing 1,225 machinery hours and 4,401 snow-plough miles at a cost of $4,834.31. Due to
the fact that truck ploughs had been supplied, it was possible to give a much better and
faster service to the public than in former years.
The roads with bituminous surfacing came through the winter in fine shape, but
considerable trouble was experienced during the month of March, 1938, with some earth
and gravel roads, especially south and east of Trail, and in some cases the roads became
almost impassable for two or three weeks until the frost came out and the surface got dry
enough for grading.
Kaslo-Slocan Electoral District.
Maintenance.—During the year special attention was given to settlers' and industrial
roads all over the district. At Arrowhead approximately 2,000 feet of new plank sidewalk
was laid.
The main highways throughout were well maintained and gravelling on many portions
of the highways was carried out. Roads have been in excellent condition all year, except
during November and December, when heavy rains caused many slides and washouts.
Construction.—Major work done this year included 2 miles of a 9-mile diversion on the
Slocan Valley-Nakusp Highway, known as Project 13 Vallican, and the Box Lake Project
on the same highway. Both of these projects were under contract. • One-half mile was
standardized on the Nelson-Kaslo Road, known as Project 11, Cedar Creek section.
Mining-road projects which were undertaken during the year included the Kaslo-New
Denver Road Project 36m, many short, dangerous curves and narrow sections being
widened and gravelled; most of this work comprising solid rock excavation. The balance
of the projects undertaken and completed were as follows:   Springer Creek Road;   Project X 22 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1937-38.
38m, Enterprise Creek Road; Project 39m, Ferguson-8-Mile Road; Project 57m, Beaton-
Ferguson Road;   and Project 37m, Sandon-Reco Road.
Surfacing.—Six and one-half miles of bituminous spray-coat surface were laid during
the year, 1.67 miles on the Nelson-Kaslo Road; 1 mile on the Nakusp Streets; and 3.85 miles
on the Slocan Valley-Nakusp Highway, between Silverton and New Denver. All this work
stood up well, with the exception of 0.37 mile at Ainsworth, on the Nelson-Kaslo Road. This
section was laid near the Ainsworth Hot Springs and it is thought that the hot water which
seeps under this road is the cause of this breaking up.
Ferries.—Both Arrow Park and Needles-Fauquier Ferries ran continuously throughout
the year. The Needles Ferry was laid off for two days for much-needed repairs, a gasoline
motor-boat and barge being used to handle the traffic while this ferry was being repaired.
Bridges.—Forty-six bridges were maintained during the year. Nine of these were
replaced by culverts and fills. Three stringer bridges and one standard pile-trestle bridge
over the Innonaklin River on the Jordan Road were renewed.
Office Building.—On April 7th of this year the office building was destroyed by fire,
including office supplies and all furniture. Since then a new building has taken its place.
This building houses the Public Works, Mining Recorder, and Forestry Offices, and is a
credit to the contractor and the Government.
Snow-removal.—Snow-ploughing was very expensive this year. Although snowfall was
lighter than last year, the wet weather after each storm brought down numerous slides on
main highways, consisting of rock, mud, and snow. Two hundred and eighty-one miles of
road were kept open at an average cost of $30.42 per mile. The addition of a new truck
plough greatly aided in the work.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT NO. 6  (LILLOOET AND CARIBOO
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, W. Ramsay, Williams Lake.
North Cariboo Electoral District.
General maintenance was undertaken on approximately 300 miles of the more important
trunk and main roads, but principally on the Cariboo Road from Mile 158 to Woodpecker,
and on the Quesnel—Barkerville Road.
Reconstruction and minor betterments were carried out on the Fraser River Road (west
side of the Fraser River) at Alexandria and Narcosli Creek, thus improving transportation
facilities for ranchers doing business with Quesnel.
Widening and some gravel surfacing was done on the Blackwater Road between Miles
6 and 9. A diversion was constructed on the Nazko Road at Mile 12, culverts installed and
ditching and gravelling carried out. General improvements, including gravelling, ditching,
and installation of culverts were carried out on Hixon settlers' roads, Macalister-Mud Lake-
Soda Creek Road, and Quesnel-Hydraulic Road.
On the Cariboo Highway, between Mile 221 and Mile 222 north of Quesnel, approximately
1.5 miles of the road was reconstructed on new location to a road-bed width of 30 feet. A
relocated section was also constructed on the Soda Creek-Williams Lake Cut-off in Soda
Creek Canyon, eliminating a narrow, dangerous side-hill section with steep grades.
Extensive improvements were carried out on several mining-roads, in particular the
Barkerville Road, which includes a diversion between Mile 7 and Mile 8, eliminating thirteen
curves on the existing road.
Bridges.—The construction of a 130-foot-span Howe truss with creosoted chords and four
pile-trestle approach-spans on the Cariboo Highway at Canyon Creek formed the outstanding
bridge-work during the season. Six thousand cubic yards of fill were also put in place and
angular rock protection to high-water mark.
A new bridge consisting of a standard 20-ton pile-trestle on fir piles was constructed over
Slough Creek on the Barkerville Road, replacing an old spruce structure. In order to
eliminate a blind turn and heavy grades, a standard 10-ton trestle on cedar bents was erected
on the down-stream side of the existing 5-Mile Bridge on Keithley Road, making a great
improvement at this point, particularly for truck traffic. DISTRICT REPORTS. X 23
South Cariboo Electoral District.
General maintenance-work was carried out on approximately 700 miles of road, and, on
additional side-road mileage, brush was cut and rocks removed from the centre of the road-bed.
Deka Lake Road was extended 4 miles, while the remainder of this road was graded and
gravel placed on the worst sections.
Reconstruction and minor betterments were undertaken on the following roads:—
Alexis Creek:   General repairs and patch-gravelling on 4 miles.
Chilcotin:   Grading, ditching, patch-gravelling 1.3 miles near Springhouse.
Horsefly Upper  (Black Creek) :   Widening and improving 8 miles.
Canim Lake:   Grading and gravelling 2 miles.
Mile 93-Bridge Lake and Deka Lake area: General grading, patch-gravelling, and
installing new culverts.
Beaver Valley:   Grading and improving 15 miles.
The following work was undertaken on the Cariboo Highway: At Mile 141: Building
0.6 mile of new diversion to standard width and gravel surfacing. Mile 147 to Mile 149:
Constructing 1.2 miles of new diversion to standard width and part gravelling.
As a Mining-road Project, 1.5 miles of new grade on the Williams Lake-Likely Road
was constructed on new location, reducing maximum gradient from 19 to 7.5 per cent.
Several other mining-roads were improved under this heading.
Bridges.—Several small stringer bridges were constructed in various parts of the district
and a new pile structure 152 feet long was put in at Mile 141 on Cariboo Road.
General.—In connection with the working-out of tax arrears in South Cariboo every
effort was made to get as much as possible spent on gravelling side-roads, and altogether
5,300 cubic yards of gravel were placed on various roads in this way. In addition, a considerable mileage of road was brushed out, also rocks and stumps removed and general improvement-work carried out at many points throughout the district.
Snow-removal work was undertaken on 529 miles of road and the units in operation
covered 2,984 snow-plough miles. The Cariboo Road was open for auto traffic every day
during the winter months for the first time.
Lillooet Electoral District.
Single Homeless Men's Relief Ca,mps.—Two camps, continuing from the previous year,
were operated at Squamish and Lytton, respectively, from April 1st to June 30th. At
Squamish the work consisted of completing and extending 3 miles of the Squamish-Britannia
Road, involving the moving of 43,000 cubic yards excavation, 250 lineal feet of bridging, and
sundry culvert structures. Approximately 40 per cent, of the length of Squamish-Britannia
Road has been completed.
At Lytton the work comprised the reconstruction of 2 miles of the Lytton-Lillooet Road
from Lytton north, involving the moving of 15,000 cubic yards of rock excavation and 16,000
cubic yards of earth and hard-pan excavation. Owing to the closing-down of the Lytton
Camp, a small amount of the work remains to be done on the Lytton Project to complete the
grading of the improved portion.
Mining Projects.—Five projects were carried out under this heading, four in the Bridge
River area and one at Squamish. Eleven and one-half miles of mining-road and 1% miles
of mining-trail were constructed. All of these projects require further work and extension
to reach their objectives.
Roads Generally.—Maintenance and minor improvements were carried out to the extent
permitted by available funds. Improvements were made to various settlers' roads by tax
workers and Government forces. The renewing and construction of crib-work is an expensive
item in this district.
On October 29th the Squamish Valley was subjected to serious flood conditions, causing
much damage to the roads and bridges of that area. Repairs and replacements have been
carried out, but it was not feasible to complete all the necessary work, which will require
further attention next fiscal year. Two washouts on the Lytton-Lillooet Road were rebuilt
with improved structures.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Two miles of Lillooet Main Street were treated with a spray-
coat of Tarvia.    Five miles of Trans-Canada Highway west of Ashcroft Manor were surfaced X 24 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1937-38.
with asphalt pre-mix. Flush-coating was carried out on the old surfacing between Lytton
and Spences Bridge.    The total mileage of surfaced roads in this district is now 33.85 miles.
Bridges.—A 60-foot King-truss span with pile approaches, was erected over Stawamus
River in the Squamish area, and various repairs and renewals necessitated by flood damage
were made to the various bridges in the same area. Necessary maintenance was carried out
on a number of bridges in many parts of the district.
Ferries.—A new ferry-boat was provided for the Pavilion Ferry. All the other ferries
were maintained, and operated successfully throughout the year.
River-bank Protection Dyking.—Extensive improvements were made to the dykes and
river at Pemberton Meadows.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was not as heavy as last year, but falls were more frequent,
particularly in the Bridge River area, requiring frequent ploughing. Snow-ploughing by
machines totalled 4,346 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 10.02 to Mile 11. A very
considerable proportion of this work was heavy construction. The flat on each side of Diana
Creek was muskeg and required heavy corduroy and rocking. Clearing and grubbing was
also very heavy on this mile. A new pile bridge was built over Diana Creek. From Mile 1
to Mile 10 on the North Trans-Provincial Highway work was done in widening curves and
putting super-elevation where necessary.
At Port Simpson new construction was done on Road No. 38. This road, the Shore or
Hospital Road, was badly washed out by storms and high tides. At Dodge Cove, on Digby
Island, most of the work was in the nature of surfacing with clam-shell mixed with sand.
At Jap Inlet 318 feet of new sidewalk was built to connect with the new Dominion Wharf.
At Oona River much gravelling was done on the trails; gravel being taken from the riverbed at low tide.    Some cribbing was necessary.
Approximately 1,175 lineal feet of new construction was completed to give access to the
Miller shingle-mill;   and the road surfaced with crushed rock and gravel.
Surfacing was necessary on the Court-house approaches with crushed rock and gravel.
At the Court-house Building repairs have been carried out in the different offices as required
and improvements have been made on the Court-house grounds.
Bridges.—Railings of Galloway Rapids Bridge No. 68 were painted white. Spans were
trussed, decking repaired, and chords and braces tightened. At Oona River Bridge caps
were renewed and pier strengthened by putting rock around footing. Necessary maintenance
and repairs were also carried out on McBride Street Footbridge No. 18, and on Jap Inlet
Bridge No. 71.
Wharves.—A considerable amount of work was done on the Prince Rupert Wharf, chiefly
on the loading-platform. New joists and false piling were put in in different places under the
fish-houses and the whole structure kept in good repair.
At the Cow Bay floats, a new anchorage block for ramp was installed and the ramp
moved approximately 10 feet. A new float 122 by 10 feet and another 94 by 14 feet were
built.    One six-pile dolphin was driven.    Repairs to the other floats were necessary.
Queen Charlotte Islands (South End).—Improvements were made to Marine Drive
between Port Clements and Queen Charlotte City and to the Tlell-Skidegate Road. On the
Queen Charlotte City-Skidegate Road some widening and gravel surfacing was done. Work
was also done on Third Avenue West, Queen Charlotte City. Settlers' roads were improved
by gravelling, ditching, grading, and surfacing. An approach was opened up to give access
to the Dominion Government Wharf at Skidegate. A new bridge (No. 21) 125 feet in length
with rock-fill replaces the old and longer structure at Queen Charlotte City. The superstructure of No. 13, Kumdis Bridge, 224 feet in length, was renewed.
Queen Charlotte Islands (North End).—Necessary repairs were carried out to the old
Masset-New Masset Road and Masset Streets.    Cook Street was opened up for 200 feet and DISTRICT REPORTS. X 25
Delkatlah Street for 600 feet, 20 feet wide. Delkatlah Shore Road was improved by a fill
600 feet long. Masset-Tow Hill Road was maintained, improvements made at Mile 1.6 and
0.8 mile of new road cleared, rough-graded, and planked near White Creek, over which a
new bridge was built. A reconnaissance survey was made of the proposed road from Port
Clements to Masset, a distance of 31 miles, and 4%. miles located at the Port Clements end
and 4% miles at the Masset end.
Atlin Electoral District.
South Atlin.—Alice Arm—Project No. 6—Dolly Varden Railway: Work commenced
April 1st, 1937, and discontinued November 19th, 1937. The track, which extends for 17
miles, was put in fair condition for light speeder traffic. Slides were cleared, the track
brushed out, some new ties and track put in, bridges and cribbing replaced. At Paul Kladuc
Creek a log-jam was cleared and new cribbing put in, 300 feet of track, including new ties
replaced. At Mud Creek Canyon 600 feet of track and trestle-work had to be replaced. A
new 87-foot bridge was put in at 9-Mile.
Project No. 23, Upper Kitsault Trail: Work commenced July 2nd and discontinued
September 30th, 1937. The first 7 miles were brushed out and slides removed, windfalls cut
out and cleared. Some excavation was done and puncheon put in where required. This trail
is in good shape for pack-horses, with the exception of two small bluffs, where the trail is
narrow.
Illiance Trail was brushed out for 14 miles, windfalls cut out and considerable rock-work
and grading done.
Wing Dam (Bridge Protection) : Three hundred and fifty cubic yards of rock was used
to strengthen the dam.    Snags were blasted out of the river, and general repairs were made.
At Aiyansh the Grease Harbour Road was improved, clearing and grading carried out
where necessary and some new culverts installed. Work was also done on the Irene Meadow
Road, the Grease Harbour-Cranberry Road, and the Aiyansh-Sand Lake Road. One hundred
and fifty-six lineal feet of new bridging, 4 feet wide, were constructed on Port Nelson-Arran-
dale Trail.
Stewart.—Project No. 20, Bear River Protection: Work, which commenced on April 1st,
1937, was completed, as far as funds would permit, on November 30th, 1937. The old groyne
extends from the west end of Bear River Bridge to a point 3,360 feet in a southerly direction.
The present work included the strengthening of the old groyne where necessary, and its extension in a south-westerly direction for 1,755 feet. A total of 8,500 cubic yards of rock was
used. The average width of the wall or groyne is 16 feet at the base, tapering to 6 feet at the
top.    Three hundred feet of ditching and excavation was also done.
Project No. 4, Big Missouri Road: Work was continued on this project, commencing May
2nd, 1937, and finishing on October 30th, 1937. Rock points were removed and the road
widened as far as possible; 30 new culverts were put in and 13,200 feet of new ditching, 200
lineal feet of cribbing, 62 lineal feet of timbered bridges, 275 cubic yards of dry-stone wall,
40 cubic yards of riprap, and 2,480 cubic yards of gravelling. A number of mining-trails
were brushed out, cleared, and generally maintained in a passable condition. The Salmon
River Road, Stewart-Hyder Road, Bear River Road, and the arterial highway in Stewart
were maintained.
Unuk River.—Sulpherettes Creek: About 9 miles of new pack-trail were cut and slashed,
windfalls cut out, and grading done. The cable-crossing at 3-Mile was moved about 300 feet
farther up.    Some heavy grading was done between 3-Mile and 4-Mile on steep side-hill.
Mouth of Sulphide Creek, Project No. 42: Work on this project was commenced on July
26th, 1937, and discontinued October 14th, 1937. This trail is 16 miles, 10 miles of it being
completed at the end of the season's work. Thirty-six and a half acres were cleared and
12 acres grubbed. One thousand cubic yards of earth excavated, 400 feet of corduroy put in,
and 300 feet of small log bridges.
North Atlin.—Whitewater Mine Road, Project No. 1: This is a new road, 7 miles in
length, from Taku Landing to the Polaris Taku Mine. The road was cleared an average
width of 33 feet, the width of the road being 10 to 12 feet, average width of finished surface
10 feet.
Atlin Surprize Road: Some major improvements were made on this road. Ditches were
cleared and improved, culverts cleaned, and new ones put in where required. X 26 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1937-38.
Spruce and Ruby Creek Roads: Major improvements were made on this road. This
work included clearing and improving existing culverts and putting in new ones where necessary. Ditches were cleaned and improved, and grades reduced or improved as required.
General maintenance and repairs were carried out on other roads during the season.
Stikine.—Telegraph Creek-Dease Lake Road, Project No. 11: Work on this project was
commenced on May 17th, 1937, and completed on September 24th, 1937, and comprised general
improvements on that portion between Mile 26 and Mile 65.
McDames Creek-Quartz City Road, Project No. 12: Improvement-work was commenced
on this project July 2nd, 1937, and completed September 18th, 1937. The work, which was
done from Mile 1 to Mile 17, has placed the road in fair condition for the distance covered.
Calbreath Road: Some improvements were done on this road during the season, consisting of clearing brush, ditches, and grading.    Road in fair shape.
Skeena Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—All roads were maintained during the year; relief labour
was available in all parts of this district.
Highway Construction and Improvements.—Six miles of the North Trans-Provincial
Highway have been opened up east of Usk. Three miles are complete, and about 3 miles
40 per cent, complete. Between Skeena Crossing and Kitwanga 1 mile of the highway was
graded about 80 per cent., to replace the road washed out by 1936 floods.
Driftwood Road No. 23 was widened and improved for 4 miles, and Silver Lake Trail
No. 281 widened to a tractor road for 3 miles. A regrading scheme was carried out in connection with the reconstruction of the Driftwood Bridge. Repairs were made to the plank
roads in Port Essington.
Trails.—Numerous mining-trails were improved.
Bridge Maintenance and Construction.—Minor repairs were made to a number of bridges
throughout the district. A new 70-foot King-truss span was erected over Driftwood Creek,
with trestle approaches. Two new 60-foot King-truss spans were erected over Cedarvale
Slough with trestle approaches. A 70-foot King-truss span of hewn timber over Chimdemash
was completed. The northerly tower of the 4-Mile suspension bridge on Kispiox Road was
reinforced and stiffened by new timber and concrete. With the exception of Chimdemash
Bridge, all new construction was made necessary by flood damage.
Ferries.—A new 5-ton reaction ferry was built and launched at Remo to replace one
destroyed by floods in 1936. A 14- by 16-foot cabin was built for the Hazelton Ferry to
replace the ferry-house washed away in the 1936 floods. Minor repairs were carried out to
the other ferries in the district. Sunday and holiday service was inaugurated during the
summer on the ferries, and proved a great convenience to the residents of the different
communities.
Snow-removal.—A total of 220 miles of road were ploughed and kept open for traffic, the
equipment ploughing 1,934 snow-plough miles. The snow, while not heavy, became rain-
soaked after every individual fall, making removal difficult, and resulting in icy roads after
ploughing. Snow-fences were used for the first time in the district at Hazelton and Terrace,
and proved their effectiveness during drift conditions.
Surveys.—Location surveys on different parts of the road between Skeena Crossing and
Kitwanga for a total of 1.25 miles were made. Two miles of relocation were run east of Usk.
Surveys were made and plans prepared for the gazetting of several roads throughout the
district.
Omineca Electoral District.
Construction and Reconstruction.—Five different projects were undertaken between
Telkwa and Vanderhoof. The McDowell Creek Project, which was only about 75 per cent,
completed in 1936, was finally completed in 1937. This work consisted of a double 5- by 6-foot
culvert and fill. The culvert, which was 110 feet in length, was constructed of 12- by 12-inch
cedar timber. This work has greatly improved the alignment at this point and has also
eliminated a very dangerous section of road.
The Houston Project, which was commenced in 1937, was totally completed this season.
This work comprised the excavation of a new channel at Buck River, 1,672 feet in length,
60 feet wide,  and  5  feet  deep.    A  60-foot  King-truss  span  with  four   15-foot  pile-bent DISTRICT REPORTS. X 27
approaches was constructed over this channel and the Buck River then turned into the new
channel. The fill approaches to the bridge were constructed from material taken from the
new channel. In all about 16,000 cubic yards of material were used for this purpose. Three
thousand six hundred feet of road leading to the bridge were reconstructed to standard width
and surfaced.
One-half mile of road was reconstructed to standard width about xk mile east of Endako.
This was surfaced with gravel. At Le Jae, % mile was reconstructed and surfaced with
gravel.    One mile was reconstructed and gravel-surfaced east of Fort Fraser.
Work was carried out on the Smithers-Babine Road, 2% miles of new right-of-way being
cleared, 1% miles graded 7 feet wide, culverts installed, and thirteen small bridges constructed. Clearing and 2% miles of grading 18 feet wide was done on the Burns Lake-Babine
Road. On the Colleymount Road, the rock-cut at Colleymount was widened and the road-bed
raised above lake-level at high water. One mile of the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake was reconstructed, straightened, and gravelled at Mile 11, and 2 miles reconstructed and gravelled
between Mile 16 and 17.    Reconstruction and gravelling were also done on several other roads.
Mining Projects.—Project No. 3, Fort St. James-Manson Creek: This work was carried
out under contract. Starting at Mile 13 the contractors reconstructed to width of 16 feet to
Mile 25. All necessary culverts were put in and the road gravelled. In addition, three pile-
trestle bridges of 20 tons loading were constructed over the Ocock, Tslicoch, and 14-Mile.
Project No. 3a, Fort St. James-Manson Creek: This work consisted of making repairs
and general improvements between 32-Mile and Manson Creek. A great improvement in this
road has taken place during the last year. The section between Mile 13 and Mile 18, was
probably the most difficult section of road to construct in this section of the country. The
nature of material is extremely difficult to handle, it being of a very heavy gumbo.
Other mining-road projects included No. 13, Takla Landing-Old Hogam—improved so
that trucks can travel the entire distance of 42 miles; No. 56, Aiken Lake-Croyden Mine,
comprising the cutting of a sleigh-road 8 miles long, the crews being sent in and brought out
by air-plane;   and No. 43, Dome Mountain, 4 miles of trail having been cleared and graded.
Bridges.—Ten new bridges were constructed, including the following: Three bridges on
the Fort St. James-Manson Creek Road. Tsingut River Bridge, 10 miles east of Vanderhoof,
comprising a pile-trestle. Stoney Creek Bridges, Nos. 1 and 2, pile-trestle, 160 feet and 200
feet in length, respectively. McEvoy Bridge, No. 7, 60-foot King-truss span and pile-trestle
approaches; channel excavated 700 feet long and 40 feet wide. Priestley Bridge, No. 156,
60-foot King-truss span and pile-trestle approaches.
Maintenance.—All roads in the district were well maintained during the year, and considerable new gravelling was done at different points throughout the district.
Snow-removal.—About 700 miles of road were kept open during the entire winter. A
section of road between Fort St. James and Shoemaker, on the Manson Creek Road, was
opened up on February 1st, and kept open the remainder of the season. This work was done
at considerable cost on account of the heavy fall of snow in that section. However, freighters
and mine operators were permitted to take in several hundred tons of freight at a very low
transportation cost.
Ferries.—The ferries were kept in operation continuously until freeze-up and were
cleaned, repaired, and put in order during the winter.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 7a  (FORT GEORGE ELECTORAL DISTRICT).
Assistant District Engineer, J. W. Miers, Prince George.
Highway Reconstruction and Improvement.—Cariboo Highway: Between Stone Creek
and the southerly boundary of the district, approximately 2 miles were widened to standard
and gravel surfaced, and between Prince George and Summit Lake a further 10 miles of this
highway were gravelled.
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway: Near Willow River major improvements were
made on a 2-mile section, including the reconstruction on improved alignment of % mile.
Between Giscome and Hansard, 9 miles were regravelled and an additional 3 miles gravelled,
making an all-weather road from Prince George to a point 1% miles east from Aleza Lake.
On the section east of Hansard, toward Sinclair Mills, 3 miles through swampy, heavily timbered country were hand-ditched and several fills were made.    From McBride to Valemount X 28 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1937-38.
the highway was generally improved and several narrow side-hill sections were widened. On
the section of this highway west of Prince George to the district boundary, 3 miles were
gravelled; a 1-mile section at the airport was widened to standard, and the right-of-way
cleared on several short diversions on improved alignment to eliminate dangerous curves.
Bridges and Culverts.—An old 40-foot King-truss span at Stone Creek was replaced by a
60-foot King-truss span, with pile-trestle approaches.
The stringers and floor were renewed in the pile-trestle over Dome Creek, and numerous
other bridges, chiefly minor structures, were reconstructed, repaired, or reinforced to carry
loads in excess of the standard to which they were built, but which are now imposed upon
them by modern trucks.
The 35-Mile bridge at Woodpecker was replaced by a 24-inch concrete culvert and 4,500
cubic yards fill on improved alignment. Six other concrete-pipe culverts of 24- and 36-inch
diameter were also constructed, three of which replaced 20-foot stringer bridges.
Ferries.—The Isle Pierre reaction ferry was reconditioned at the end of the season, and
sheathed to above water-line with heavy gauge galvanized sheet iron as protection from frazil
ice in the early winter. It would appear that traffic on this ferry is decreasing with the improvement of the alternate route to Prince George via the Chief Lake Highway.
Snow-removal.—With a snowfall slightly below average and few bad wind-storms, little
difficulty was experienced in keeping open approximately 200 miles of highway with equipment which proved inadequate to meet the conditions experienced the previous winter.
Results obtained with the V-type truck plough proved beyond reasonable doubt that this type
of equipment is more efficient and economical than tractor ploughs. The average cost per
plough-mile using truck and tractors was 61 cents as compared with $1.76 the previous
winter when the truck plough was only in service for a short period and the cost per mile
kept open was $9.37.    The previous year this was $27.
•    Buildings.—A much-needed equipment-shed 100 feet in length was built in the Prince
George yard.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8  (PEACE RIVER ELECTORAL DISTRICT).
District Engineer, H. L. Hayne, Pouce Coupe.
Maintenance of Highways.—Load restrictions were placed on all roads during the spring
break-up, resulting in a material saving in maintenance costs. Patrol maintenance started
earlier than usual, but owing to the exceptionally dry summer and heavy traffic the main
roads ravelled badly and continued dusty until freeze-up. The patrol system was extended
to include some of the more travelled local roads where equipment was available. A total of
245 miles were covered by this way.
Highway Construction and Improvement.—Grande Prairie-Fort St. John-Peace Pass:
Work was continued westward towards Hudson Hope. An entirely new location was run
from Cache Creek to the Halfway River, eliminating two steep hills and shortening the distance over 1 mile. Six miles of this diversion were completed before freeze-up, the remaining
3 miles being made passable. The old wagon-trail from the Halfway to the head of the
portage, 13 miles beyond Hudson Hope, was made passable for motor-vehicles by minor improvements making it possible, for the first time, for cars to reach Hudson Hope under their
own power all the way. In addition, 22.9 miles of old grade between Dawson Creek and Fort
St. John were brought up to the 24-foot standard laid down by the Department, and new
gravel was laid on 5% miles between Mile 29.8 and Mile 42. The cut-bank hill was widened
to 30 feet by the use of a power-shovel, and numerous culverts were installed and small fills
made between Mile 56 and the Peace River.
Dawson-Rolla-Clayhurst: The section between Mile 1 and Mile 6 was brought up to the
24-foot standard width. The north and south hills approaching Saskatoon Creek Bridge were
relocated and reconstructed to a maximum gradient of 7 per cent, and a coat of gravel laid
down. An entirely new grade, 1.6 miles in length, to connect with the new Clayhurst ferry-
site over the Peace River, was built from the top of the hill to water-level, a drop of nearly
900 feet.
Dawson-Moberly-Hudson Hope: Four miles were graded 20 feet wide, and Chase's Hill
at Mile 5.5 was relocated and the grade cut down from 16 to 7 per cent. Numerous new
culverts and small fills were made between Dawson Creek and East Pine. Beyond the Pine
River, the old wagon-trail to Moberly Lake was improved by minor repairs and diversions. DISTRICT REPORTS. X 29
Fort St. John-Hines Creek: Work was continued with the widening of the 3-mile east
approach hill to the Beatton River, and 6 miles of the old trail to Cecil Lake were graded,
fills made and culverts installed.
Tupper-Hays-Pouce Coupe: A 2-mile diversion following the railway east from Pouce
Coupe was completed, giving a level road where two bad hills and a bridge had to be
negotiated before. Seven miles of old wagon-road were improved by grading and numerous
culverts installed.
Roads General.—Numerous farm and settlement roads were improved to a higher
standard by grading and installing culverts and ditching.
Bridges Constructed.—Landry Bridge: A 130-foot creosoted Howe-truss span was built
across the Pouce Coupe River at Landry to take the place of a ford. While only a small
number of farmers in British Columbia benefit directly by this bridge, it opens an outlet from
the Alberta side of the border to a large farming area, all residents of which do their trading
in British Columbia.
McWha Bridge: A 210-foot 10-ton standard pile-trestle spanning Canyon Creek on the
Hays Road.    It was built to eliminate two bad hills on the road to Hays District.
Four other new bridges totalling 187 feet in total length were built to give crossings
where none existed before.
Bridges Reconstructed and Maintained.—Seven old structures were replaced with new
ones having a total length of 324 feet and twenty-two structures were maintained.
Ferries.—A new ferry-site has been approved over the Peace River to give access to
residents of the Clayhurst area.    Material is on the ground and construction has started.
A temporary power-ferry, consisting of one 34-foot power-boat and a 32-foot rowboat
with a plank deck between, was put in operation over the Halfway River to allow cars wishing
to make the trip to Hudson Hope to cross the river.
All other ferries were maintained and no trouble was experienced other than the usual
ice conditions over the Peace River during the fall freeze-up and spring break-up.
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions were below normal and all roads were open. Only one
trip with the plough was necessary between rail-head and Fort St. John.
Government Buildings.—All buildings have been well maintained and foundations put in
for a six-bay machinery-shed at the Pouce Coupe Government Yard. X 30
