REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., September 10th, 1936.
Hon. F. M. MacPherson,
Minister of Public Works, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to present the following Annual Report with respect to the
work performed by this Department during- the fiscal year which ended on March 31st, 1936:	
HIGHWAYS.
Construction.—During the early part of the summer of 1935, funds were provided for
a major improvement and highway-surfacing programme in addition to reconstruction-
-work being carried out by the men in relief camps under the Department of National
Defence. The surfacing-work carried out comprised the construction of 258.11 miles of
new bituminous surface, mostly in the Southern Interior portion of the Province, and
resurfacing of 65.50' miles of existing bituminous pavement. Included in the new work
was the surfacing of 62 miles of the Trans-Canada Highway and 92 miles of the Okanagan
and Southern Trans-Provincial Highway. Details of the foregoing work are given in the
attached individual reports from the Surfacing Engineer and District Engineers. It is
hoped that funds can be provided, year by year, for continuation of this type of construction
with a view to early completion of hard-surfacing of all main travelled routes in the southern
portion of the Province, thus eliminating the present unavoidable rough and dusty conditions
which prevail in the Interior during the months of July and August, when traffic is at a peak
for the year.
During the year arrangements were concluded with the Dominion Government whereby
the latter has taken over the completion of the construction of the western section of the
Big Bend route. Under this arrangement the entire route is expected to be completed within
reasonable time.
Work on the construction of the Hope-Princeton section of the Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway was continued from relief camps by the Department of National Defence. At the
Princeton end, the pioneer road was extended to within 1 mile of Allison Summit; at the
Hope end, work has been proceeding over the first 10 miles, which are near to completion.
The entire distance from Hope to Princeton is about 87 miles, on 29 miles of which no
construction-work has been done.
The Prince Rupert Highway was extended to a point beyond Cloyah Bay, 9 miles out of
Prince Rupert; of the total distance between Prince Rupert and Hazelton, estimated at 180
miles, 25 miles have been completed, 33 miles require to be reconstructed, leaving 122 miles
of absolutely new road to be built.
Highway Relief Projects, Department of National Defence.—The scheme whereby relief
camps are operated by the Department of National Defence for the relief of " single homeless
men" was again continued throughout the year under similar conditions as previously
reported. Attached is a schedule showing the various projects undertaken or continued
under this scheme during the year.
The following is a summary of the maximum and minimum number of men in- relief
camps during the fiscal year 1935-36:— I 6

Maintenance of Highways.—For the second year in succession considerable losses were
suffered as a result of severe storms, although not to the same extent as during the previous
year. On July 1st, 1935, very heavy rains occurred in the Kamloops, Salmon Arm, and North
Okanagan Districts, several miles of road being washed out and thirty-three bridges destroyed.
Extensive damage was also caused by floods during the month of July in the Peace River
District. In Skeena, Lower Atlin, and Prince Rupert Districts, severe floods in October
resulted in the loss of many bridges and other damage. These losses are dealt with in more
detail in the report of the Bridge Engineer and in the District Reports. All damage was
made good as far as practical or necessary.
The funds expended under the heading of maintenance and minor betterment of roads,
bridges, and ferries, including maintenance of paved highways, amounted to $1,339,025, as
compared with $1,317,718 for the previous year. Such a sum would be quite inadequate were
it not for the additional work done by relief recipients " working out " their relief on the
roads, a system which has been in force since the year 19-31. As will be noticed from the
individual district reports, the work done under this heading is very valuable.
BRIDGES.
Fraser River Bridge, New Westminster.—A contract was let for the construction of the
new high-level highway traffic bridge over the Fraser River at New Westminster, this being
the most important bridge to be built by this Province for many years. The existing bridge,
built in 1903, has given thirty-three years' valuable service in carrying both highway traffic
and the traffic of three railway-lines, but the roadway is too narrow to accommodate the
increasing volume of highway traffic at this point; moreover, the frequent openings of the
span are a source of delay, and also it is necessary to restrict the weight of heavy trucks
using the present bridge.
During the year a start was made on the substructure and on the improvement of the
south approach-road to provide a width sufficient to accommodate four lines of traffic from
the top of Peterson Hill westerly.
Bridges Generally.—The Bridge Engineer's report for the year is attached; attention is
directed to the influence of modern traffic demands which is resulting in gradually superseding
the use of timber King-truss spans in favour of steel I-beam spans of greater width. The
increased use of preservative treatment for timber structures will also be noted. REPORT OF CHIEF ENGINEER. I 7
RIVER-BANK PROTECTION.
Interesting work carried out on the right bank of the Fraser River from the mouth of
Maria Slough is dealt with in report for Engineering District No. 2; the work comprised the
construction of eleven timber groynes which protected 1,200 lineal feet of river-bank. The
work on Vedder River, referred to in the report for the previous year, was continued successfully. Other minor protection-works are described in the individual reports of the District
Engineers.
FERRIES.
A tabulation is attached showing the volume of vehicular and passenger traffic carried
on the more important ferries operated by or subsidized by the Province. Ferry services
were maintained as usual, with the exception of the Shuswap Lake Ferry service, S.S.
" Whitesmith " having met with an accident which resulted in her temporary withdrawal
from service, and with the further exception of Remo Ferry, which was lost during the
October storm.
MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT.
The Mechanical Superintendent reports a noticeable improvement in the general condition of equipment, due largely to the improvement in garage and repair-shop facilities, more
efficient organization, and supervision of operators and of repair-work.
An inventory and schedule showing valuation of plant and tools accompany this report.
SNOW-REMOVAL.
On the Coast, and in some parts of the Interior, snowfall was above the average, whereas
elsewhere—for instance, in the eastern part of the Province—there was less snow than usual.
During the winter, 6,787 miles of road were ploughed, comprising a total of 43,601 " snow-
plough miles " at an average cost of $15.40 per mile of road kept open, of which $9.88 comprised wages and supplies. The average cost per " snow-plough mile " was $2.40, being the
average cost of ploughing 1 mile of road once, as compared with an average of $3.79 for the
previous year.
ROAD MILEAGE.
The usual statement showing mileage of highways according to electoral districts and
according to type of surface is attached. This statement has been prepared following the
completion of the work of revising the road registers. The total milage, as now reported,
is over 20,000 miles, including 519 miles of municipal highways classified as Arterial, Primary,
or Secondary under Part III. of the " Highway Act "; of the total mileage, 6,523 miles are
gravelled and 901 miles are paved or bituminous^surfaced. The total mileage includes some
6,165 miles which may be classed as " Trunk or Main Highways." There are also 9,943 miles
of trails on the Department's registers, of which 5,449 miles are classed as " Mining Trails."
CLASSIFIED HIGHWAYS.
The following changes were made in the status of highways classified under Part III. of
the " Highway Act ":—
That portion of the " Kelowna-Vernon Highway " which lies within the Municipality of
Glenmore was classified as an Arterial Highway, 0.928 mile in length, Reference No. 82R.
Point Roberts Road, in Delta Municipality, was classified as a Secondary Highway,
Reference No. 99b;  length, 1.55 miles.
Scott Road and portion of Mount Newton Cross-road, in the Municipality of Saanich,
from East Saanich Road to James Island Ferry Wharf, was classified as an Arterial Highway,
Reference No. 84r,- length, 1.60 miles.
RAILWAY GRADE CROSSING ELIMINATION.
The following projects were authorized by the Board of Railway Commissioners, contribution being made from the Railway Grade Crossing Fund as noted:—■ I 8 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
Contribution.
Per Cent.
(a.) Overhead bridge over C.N.R. at New Hazelton on Tenth Avenue
at Mileage 46.44, Bulkley Subdivision, to eliminate two existing
level crossings          70
(6.) Diversion of highway at Laurier to eliminate two level crossings
over the V.V. & E.R. & N. Company's tracks, involving the movement of tracks, etc         100
(c.) Diversion of Vernon-Armstrong Highway between Miles 37.1 and
and 38.5, Okanagan Subdivision, C.P.R., at Larkin, 7 miles
north of Vernon, to eliminate two existing main highway crossings and construction of one crossing for local traffic         70
(d.)  Overhead crossing of C.N.R. at point 9 miles south of Kelowna
on the Kelowna-Vernon Highway       100
The amount of contribution from the Railway Grade Crossing Fund in each case is the
percentage stated of the actual cost, not, however, to exceed the said percentage of the
estimated cost.
HIGHWAY TRAFFIC.
The provisions of Part V. of the " Highway Act," as re-enacted during the 1935 session
of the Legislature, were outlined in the report for the previous fiscal year (page T 7). The
revised Part V. was duly proclaimed to come into effect on July 15th, 1935, and Regulations
respecting Motor Carriers drafted and approved on June 11th, 1935.
Regulations respecting weights and dimensions of vehicles and loads, pursuant to section
34 of the " Highway Act," were also revised and the revised regulations approved on June
11th, 1935; under these regulations the weight restrictions are now on what is considered to
be a more equitable basis than formerly, due allowance being made for the length of wheel-
base, number of tires and number of axles, and, in particular, the type of tires, greater weights
being allowed on balloon tires than on the ordinary " high-pressure " pneumatics.
The revised Part V. of the " Highway Act" provides for the licensing of all motor-
vehicles operated for compensation and also all private freight-vehicles, which entailed the
reorganization of the Highway Traffic Branch of the Department and the extension and activities of its staff.
Many difficulties were encountered; the legislation was, admittedly, experimental and no
steps were therefore taken, at first, towards rigid enforcement. Gradually, however, the
operators obtained a better understanding of the objects of and the reasons for the control
of highway transportation, and it is confidently expected that, following the revisions which
were subsequently made to the regulations in May, 1936, the situation will be satisfactorily
cleared up by the end of the 1936 licence-year.
The honorary members of the Advisory Board continued to give generously of their time
in attending many sessions (including evening sittings) in their desire and endeavour to
assist and co-operate with the Department in every way to bring about the successful regulation of the transportation industry in this Province.
During the year Mr. Elmer Johnston (member of the Board) and Mr. R. J. Stewart,
Traffic Superintendent, made a tour of the Southern Interior of the Province and met members
of the transportation industry at several centres; their difficulties were discussed and the
Act and regulations were explained. The experience gained from these meetings was of
great assistance when amendments to the regulations were under consideration this spring.
Attached hereto is a statement showing the number of licences issued during the year.
Of the 2,390 applications received, approximately 200 were refused, cancelled, or withdrawn
and some 500 held over pending either the filing of proof of financial responsibility (insurance),
filing of tolls, or payment of annual licence fees.
Mechanical inspection of motor-carrier vehicles and enforcement of the Act generally
were in the hands of the Provincial Police. Traffic Inspectors of this Department were fully
occupied in checking up on vehicles found operating without licences and in protection of
highways during the time when the frost was coming out of the ground.    More than 3,000 Hope-Princeton Highway under construction.    View looking west from a point approximately

vehicles were stopped and warned for operating without a licence and fourteen prosecutions
were launched under this heading; there were two prosecutions under section 33 of the
" Highway Act."
Members of the Advisory Board are:—
Mr. W. F. McClintock (Chairman).
M. Elmer Johnston.
Mr. Hugh Dalton.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Under the provisions of the " Land Registry Act," 139 subdivision plans were submitted
for approval and dealt with. A total of 173 permits for " Construction of Works within
Crown Lands " were issued, many of them being issued to public utility companies for the
construction of pole-lines, pipe-lines, and the like, on public highways.
Commencement was made on the preparation of a " Manual of Instructions " for use of
officials of this Department; this will fill a great need; it is proposed to produce the book in
a loose-leaf form to allow for expansion and revision in the future. During the year the
publication was commenced of a quarterly journal, the 'first issue of which was dated
January, 1936.
Correspondence at Headquarters comprised 42,770 inward and outward letters.
I desire to place on record my appreciation of the services rendered by the various officials
of the Department in the performance of their respective duties.
It is with great regret that I record the death, on January 30th, 1836, of this Department's
Right-of-way Agent, the late Robert James Wark, who joined the staff of the Department in
the year 1928.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
A. DIXON,
Chief Engineer.
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECT.
Through funds being available from Unemployment Relief votes, it has been possible to
take care of some of the pressing needs for repairs to some public buildings. It is, however,
evident that much greater sums are required to place these buildings in a more satisfactory
state of repair. While, in many instances, the interiors of the buildings have now been put
in such state that the staffs can work under sanitary conditions, the buildings are urgently
in need of structural repairs to protect them and make good defective conditions.
Various institutions, particularly the Mental Hospitals, are becoming overcrowded; such
a condition has resulted in an increase in the amount of repairs necessary, and also requires
expenditure on staff and furniture greater, by reason of the overcrowding, than would be the
case under normal conditions. Expenditures under this heading have been further increased
by the addition of the Home for the Aged to the above institutions.
The older portion of ths Mental Hospital at New Westminster is causing particular
concern; its general condition is so bad that there is an ever-increasing hazard to life and
property. In order to make this building fire-proof, to place it in a sanitary condition, and
to bring it up to the standard of the six wards remodelled some five years ago, remodelling
will be necessary. It will be remembered that one unit was gutted some four years ago and
is still in that condition; naturally this unit is deteriorating under such conditions.
Accommodation.—There is no evident relief in the housing situation, either in the Parliament Buildings or in other Government buildings; no further vault accommodation is available
and, with increased staff and services, it is necessary constantly to rent additional offices and
provide additional furniture and equipment.
New Work.—The Boys' Industrial School and Home for the Aged have been completed
and are in occupation; connecting these buildings to the steam-supply from Essondale will
effect a considerable saving and reduce the fire-hazard.
The new Tubercular Wing at the Vancouver General Hospital is progressing very
favourably and should be ready for occupation in the fall.
A new office building has been completed on the University Endowment Lands for the
Lands Department. I 10 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
School Plans.—The Branch has prepared plans for the new six-room school at Alberni
and four-room school at Creston, and carried out this work. Plans are completed for a two-
room addition to the Dawson Creek School, also plans for additions to the following schools:
Winlaw, Castlegar, Mount Prevost, Pass Creek, Cowichan Lake, Robson, and Salmo; numerous
sketch-plans have also been made for other schools, which to the present have not materialized.
Other Buildings.—Plans have been prepared for additions to New Denver Hospital and
Nurses' Home at Princeton; several sketch-plans prepared and assistance rendered to various
Hospital Boards. Plans have also been prepared for Liquor Stores and fittings in several
places for the Liquor Control Board.
Grounds.—In order to utilize the services of a considerable number of unemployed men,
it was necessary to provide some work on which they could be employed economically and
usefully.
Improvements to the grounds at the Parliament Buildings and Victoria Normal School
have thus been effected with very little expenditure. I wish to draw your attention to the
good work carried out by Mr. Tyson, Foreman of Works, in Victoria and district, in connection
with this unemployment relief-work. It has been no easy task to supervise sometimes seventy
men working for varying periods of from half a day to several days in all periods of the year
and under all weather conditions, usefully employ them, be responsible for their pay, and keep
a good feeling existing.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
Hy. Whittaker,
Chief Architect.
REPORT OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEER.
I have the honour to report upon the construction, reconstruction, and maintenance of
bridges and ferries for the past fiscal year.
Towards the close of the fiscal year 1934-35 severe winter floods occurred over the Coast
District and devastating ice-jams on some of the Interior rivers, as stated in report for that
year. The damage done was not all repaired until late in 1935. Added to this, the worst
floods on record occurred in the Shuswap and Peace River areas in July and in the Skeena and
Lower Atlin Districts in October. The damage done was very considerable, but fortunately
much less than expected and was confined largely to the older structures. Funds needed
elsewhere had to be applied to rebuild these structures. The prosecution of the Department's
regular programme had to be curtailed and delayed and it was therefore difficult to properly
organize to carry it out.
Good men were available in nearly all districts and glad to accept employment on bridge-
work at prevailing rates of pay. The quality of service rendered was generally quite
satisfactory.
Prices for materials, tools, and equipment were higher than for the previous year. This
applied especially to creosoted timber. Delivery of materials was not so prompt as usual.
Iron and steel were so long delayed in manufacture that work had to be slowed up temporarily
on several projects.
Conditions for doing work were not altogether favourable. Summer and early fall
weather was ideal, but for the balance of the year quite the reverse.
During the year the new Fraser River Bridge at New Westminster got off to a good start.
A very efficient plant has been assembled, large quantities of materials delivered, and the job
manned by the most experienced men in the Province. An unusual quantity of ice in the
river in February delayed the work for about three weeks. Nearly all the substructure-work
is being serviced by floating equipment, which was unable to .operate under the conditions.
The work was again well in hand on April 1st of this year.
A fair-sized programme of renewals was carried out and included the Kiskatinaw Bridge,
Peace River District; Quesnel Forks, Cariboo; Tsable River, Comox; Jordan River and San
Juan, Esquimalt; Casorso Mission Creek, South Okanagan; Goat River, Creston; and a start
made on Kamloops East Bridge at Kamloops. The above are the main bridges renswed.
Numerous smaller bridges were rebuilt or replaced by culverts and fills. Spreading mulch surface on Okanagan Highway north of Kelowna.

An increased amount was spent on very necessary repairs. It is becoming more difficult
all the time to maintain many of the older bridges in a safe condition for traffic.
The demand for wider, safer, and more capable structures is so insistent that timber
King spans are being superseded by steel-beam spans, and roadway widths are being increased
to as much as 24 feet on main roads.
The use of preservative treatment of timber is being expanded as much as funds will
permit. This is already proving to be very good business in every way, especially as timber
becomes more expensive.
It was found impossible to do much towards improving the reaction ferries. The ferry
at Usk, in Skeena District, was the only one renewed. It is rapidly becoming a problem to
know what to do with some of the older ferries throughout the Province as the traffic over
them is increasing all the time.
River-bank protection had to be limited to only the most urgent needs.
The staff again met satisfactorily the demands placed upon them during a year full of
difficulties, and carried out a fair amount of work of good quality.

Bridge Engineer.
REPORT OF THE MECHANICAL SUPERINTENDENT.
INSPECTION OF EQUIPMENT AND MACHINERY.
On completion of the inspection of equipment and machinery throughout the Province,
it was noted that, notwithstanding the fact that the majority of our major units are over six
years old and had been employed practically to capacity and subjected to extremely hard usage,
there was a noticeable improvement in the general condition of the equipment. This result
was brought about principally by the improvement in garage and repair-shop equipment and
more efficient organization and supervision of equipment operators in the field and repair-work
in the shops.
The recommendations made as a result of inspection were generally carried out as far as
funds available would permit; repairs and replacements were found to be warranted and had
been carried out efficiently and with a minimum of expense to the Department. Some of the
older trucks were withdrawn from service and replaced by new units, but there are many
trucks and other units in operation which have reached the stage where the annual maintenance
cost and loss, due to lack of dependability, are in excess of the cost of replacement. Pneumatic-
tire equipment is being installed on power-graders when the original solid tires wear out.
The reports submitted, although fairly comprehensive, deal only with one phase of the
work of the Equipment Branch; local conditions and problems are studied on the ground and
advised upon and the improved condition of the equipment reflects the general interest.
The equipment and machinery in every district in the Province was inspected during
fiscal year 1935-36; in all, over 2,000 separate units were inspected and reported on. The
undernoted new units were purchased at an approximate cost of $105,713:—
25 trucks. 2 road-builders.
15 autos. 1 bulldozer.
3 power-graders. 1 snow-plough.
2 pull-graders. 1 hoist.
3 rock-crushers. 1 truck-scale.
2 Diesel tractors. 1 air-compressor.
EQUIPMENT-SHEDS AND REPAIR-SHOPS.
The situation with regard to equipment-sheds and repair-shops has not materially changed
since the report submitted for last fiscal year, with the exception that a standard equipment-
shed and well-equipped repair-shop have been erected at Nelson. There are still many districts
where storage accommodation and facilities for efficient repair-work are inadequate, and this
situation should be given consideration as soon as funds are available. I 12
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
POWER-FERRIES.
The undernoted power-ferries were inspected and reported on: Kelowna-Westbank,
Francois Lake, Twelve-mile, Sorrento-Scotch Creek, Agassiz-Rosedale, Castlegar, Twenty-
four-mile, Shuswap Lake, Nelson, Ladner-Woodward, Harrop-Longbeach, Taylor 'Flats,
Kootenay Lake, Needles-Fauquier, and Creston.
Overhauls and repairs to hulls and engines have been carried out with the least possible
interruption to scheduled runs and with every possible regard to the convenience of the travelling public. Wherever possible, substitute ferry service has been provided when it was
necessary to withdraw the regular ferry from service to make repairs. All ferries operated
subject to the provisions of the " Canada Shipping Act " have been inspected and certified by
the Dominion Steamship Inspector.
The S.S. " Whitesmith," which supplied the ferry service on Shuswap Lake, sprang a leak
and sank on November 11th, lYz miles west of Canoe.    The vessel was raised and hauled out
on the ways at Sicamous on November 21st;   the ferry service was  discontinued for the
remainder of the fiscal year.

Mechanical Superintendent.
REPORT OF THE SURFACING ENGINEER.
Although it was somewhat late in the season before major operations were commenced,
258.11 miles of new bituminous surface were constructed during the fiscal year 1935-36.
The work comprised 170.73 miles of mulch, 80.39 miles of double-spray coat, and 6.99 miles
of single-spray work.
A total of 65.50 miles of resurfacing was done; this included 19.42 miles of 2-inch
mulch-work and 22.80 miles of light mulch recap-work done on old spray-coat surfaces, 4.08
miles of double respray, and 19.20 of single respray; for most of the single-respray work the
old flush-coat surfaces were first scarified and graded true, immediately ahead of the new
spray.
In addition to the foregoing, all existing bituminous-surfaced roads were maintainad, the
total cost of maintenance-work being $65,176.78, and 6.54 miles of oil dust-layer were sprayed
at a cost of $2,054.24.
During the winter and early spring months some failures occurred as the result of frost-
heaving, indicating that greater attention must be paid to the matter of drainage and to the
selection of suitable material in the construction of subgrade and gravel surface.
A total of 2,965,161 gallons of bituminous material was used during the season, slightly
over 25 per cent, of that quantity consisting of coal-tar and refined coal-tar products.
In some instances those responsible for doing the work found it difficult to obtain the
services of properly experienced men.

DISTRICT REPORTS.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 1 (VANCOUVER ISLAND, THE ISLANDS, AND
NORTHERLY PART OF MACKENZIE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Report of District Engineer, H. L. Swan, Victoria.
General.—During the fiscal year there was some improvement throughout the district in
employment conditions. In the case of the Esquimalt District, for instance, 2,207 men were
afforded 13,098 man-days relief-work, as against 2,670 men and 16,532 man-days in 1934-35,
a reduction of approximately 20 per cent. The improvement in employment conditions was
also noticeable in the Duncan, Alberni, and Campbell River areas. An exception was noticeable in the Islands District, where the amount of relief-work afforded increased 17 per cent.,
due probably not to an increase in the relief afforded, but to a larger number working out
their relief on the roads.
The relief situation is mentioned particularly for the reason that it has a very important
bearing on the maintenance of the roads throughout the district, the general improvement
having the result of reducing the available labour and thereby decreasing the amount of work
which can be done with the maintenance appropriation, thus increasing the difficulty of local
administration. This difficulty, I take pleasure in recording, was met by loyal and efficient
service on the part of the personnel of the several districts.
The winter of 1935-36 was unusual in the fact that early frosts occurred in October, 1935,
and from then on until March, 1936, there occurred alternate periods of frost and thaw,
concluding with a long frost in February and a sudden thaw in March, which made it necessary
to suspend heavy traffic on a number of roads throughout the district, and which caused much
frost damage which it was impossible to repair effectively before the end of the fiscal year.
This was particularly noticeable with the older surfacing from six to ten years of age;
originally a light carpet treatment and not subsequently resprayed.
Construction and Reconstruction—Island Highway.—The work at Goldstream, made
necessary by the washout in January, 1935, at Mile 12, was completed and bituminous-surfaced,
and another section from Mile 9.8 to Mile 11.2 was reconstructed on a new location with very
much improved alignment, and surfaced with gravel to be consolidated during the winter
preparatory to surfacing during the fiscal year 1936-37. As a part of this relocation the
outlet ditch to Langford Lake was straightened and widened for a distance of Yz mile.
In the Comox District the Island Highway was relocated and a new bridge built over the
Tsable River at Mileage 132 to 133, with a great improvement in alignment and road safety.
Between Merville and Campbell River 13.4 miles of bituminous surfacing was laid with very
satisfactory results, the new mulch having weathered the winter without damage and with
very low maintenance costs. This work extends the surfaced portion of the Island Highway
from Mile 154 to Mile 167 from Victoria.
Canadian Highway.—On the Canadian Highway between Hilliers and Alberni the mulch
surface laid last year provided greatly improved driving conditions throughout the winter,
and some progress was made (as a relief project) on the Dog Creek Diversion which will,
when completed, remove the worst remaining traffic hazard on this road.
Other Roads.—In the Esquimalt District 19 miles of new trail was built connecting the
end of the West Coast Road with Port Renfrew. On the Sooke Road the 10-Mile hill was
reconstructed and gravelled and 15.1 miles were resurfaced with bituminous premix. On the
West Coast Road 2% miles of new construction was completed by the Department of National
Defence as a relief project.
In the Cowichan-Newcastle District the Cowichan Lake Road was reconstructed for 3
miles.
In the Saanich District over 2 miles of shoulder-widening was done at Shady Creek;
wing-walls were added to the culvert and the crib replaced by an embankment constructed
to standard width.    Benvenuto Avenue was boulevarded in preparation for tree-planting.
In the Mackenzie District 3% miles of new road-construction was completed and 3%
miles of bituminous spray coat was laid. The main trail between Bella Coola and Anahim
Lake was reconstructed on a new location at the Sugar Camp Hill. The mattressing-work
at Hagensborg, commenced during the last fiscal year, was completed. Island Highway, Goldstream Diversion at Mile 10.5 from Victoria, showing gravelled surface,
preparatory to mulch treatment.
Asphaltic mulch surfacing laid on Trans-Canada Highway in Ghilliwack District.
Looking west from Mile 41.5.  Bridges.—Destroyed by the flood in January, 1935, the Jordan River and Port Renfrew
Bridges were replaced, as were several smaller bridges in the Esquimalt District. Repairs
were made to forty-three other bridges. A bridge over Phillips Creek on the West Coast Road
was built by relief labour under the Department of National Defence. Blackburn Bridge on
Saltspring Island was replaced by an embankment and culvert.
Several small bridges on the Island Highway in the Cowichan-Newcastle and Alberni-
Nanaimo Districts were replaced, with particular attention to alignment and grade, and with
a marked improvement in traffic safety.
The Tsable River Bridge in the Comox District was replaced with a creosoted truss on
pile piers.
Ferries.—The Saltspring, Mill Bay, Gabriola, and Denman Island Ferries were operated
throughout the year.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 2 (BURNABY, DEWDNEY, NORTH VANCOUVER,
VANCOUVER-POINT GREY, AND SOUTHERLY PART OF MACKENZIE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Report of District Engineer, E. H. Verner, Vancouver.
Burnaby Electoral District.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance-work was undertaken on all highways in this
district. The intense cold, which reached a peak late in February, resulted in a considerable
amount of damage to Douglas-Grandview Highway during the thaw. Matters were set right
by the maintenance gang as soon as weather conditions permitted.
Reconstruction—Dewdney Trunk Road 19b. (City of Port Moody).—Work on this road was
started on August 1st and continued until November 10th; a section 1,700 feet in length was
completed and gravelled and opened to traffic. The object of the work was to eliminate excessive curvature and reduce gradients, the total distance involved being 3,000 feet. Two cuts
were taken out, one 400 feet long and having a maximum depth of 15 feet, and one 700 feet long
and having an average depth of 15 feet throughout its length. Approximately 19,000 cubic
yards of material were excavated and placed in adjacent fills. Traffic is now passing over the
fills and through the smaller cut. The larger cut requires to be widened and sloped, ditched
and gravelled before it will be available for use. One 36-inch reinforced culvert-pipe was
lengthened and one new 36-inch reinforced culvert-pipe installed. The work was undertaken
on a day-labour basis, using a %-yard gas-shovel; trucks were hired to transport the material.
The work was all in earth, no rock being encountered, excepting a few very large boulders which
required shooting.
Snow-removal.—Late in January a freeze-up occurred, which increased in intensity until
the latter part of February. The break was accompanied by rain and snow. All highways
were kept open by means of power-graders and very little inconvenience to the travelling public
resulted.
Dewdney Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Maintenance-work of an absolute necessity was carried out on all highways
in this district during the year.
River-bank Protection-work, Agassiz.—Very severe erosion of the right bank of the Fraser
River has been taking place from the mouth of Maria Slough to a point about 1 mile downstream. The work undertaken to protect this bank was started on April 17th. The protection-
work consists of a series of timber groynes placed at approximately 100-foot intervals—
depending on the run of the bank—and making an angle with the shore-line of 60° measured
on the down-stream side of groyne. Each groyne consists of two rows of fir piling driven at
3-foot centres, securely bolted by two 10 by 12 walings placed between the rows of piles. The
piling in the rows is staggered. Each row consists of fourteen piles and the completed groyne
extends some 36 feet out from high-water mark. Eleven groynes in all were driven, which
protected the bank for a total distance of 1,200 feet. Rock mattresses consisting of " one-
man " rock enclosed in 4-foot woven-wire fencing were placed on the bank on the down-stream
side of the groyne to check any tendency of the stream to cut around the structure on the landward side. A steam-hammer was used to drive the piling and very heavy driving was encountered, due not only to the very hard ground, but also to the close spacing of the piles;  it required I 16 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
on an average thirty minutes to drive each pile to an average penetration of 12 feet. The work
was done by day-labour, a pile-driver and crew being hired for the purpose.
The whole work has proved very effective, no appreciable erosion having taken place during
the last high water on the Fraser. It was hoped that, due to the retardation of the current,
there might be a silting-in effect between the groynes, but no such action is noticeable.
Snow-removal.—The cold spell, which broke late in February, was accompanied by over
2 feet of snow in the eastern portion of the district around Agassiz, which was removed by
" side-cut " snow-plough. Very little interruption to traffic occurred, with the exception of a
few hours, when travelling was extremely difficult over the eastern slope of Agassiz Mountain.
Frost penetration at Coquitlam was over 18 inches and about 27 inches deep at Harrison Bay.
Bituminous Surfacing.—On the Lougheed Highway No. 2lR, in Pitt Meadows Municipality,
3 miles of asphaltic-mulch surfacing were laid, 20 feet wide and 2Yz inches thick. On the
Lougheed Highway No. 22r, in Maple Ridge Municipality, 4.6 miles of asphaltic mulch were
laid to the same width and thickness. This was a road-mix and closed the 7.6-mile gap in the
surfacing lying between the Pitt River Bridge and Kanaka Creek.
On the Lougheed Highway No. 23R, in Mission Municipality, the 2.5-mile gap between
Silverdale and Mission was also closed by the laying of an asphaltic-mulch surface, the same
width and thickness as above. This also was a road-mix. There is now a continuous mulch
surface on the Lougheed Highway from Port Coquitlam to Hatzic.
From Hatzic to Deroche a double flush-coat surface was laid, a distance of 10.5 miles. The
westerly mile of this is in Mission Municipality, on Lougheed Highway No. 23r; the remainder
is in unorganized territory, but on the same road.
The work was done during July and August under contract. A surfaced road is now
available for the travelling public from Vancouver to Deroche on the north side of the Fraser
River. It is a matter of great satisfaction to observe the splendid way in which the newly laid
mulch surface and also the spray-coat came through one of the most trying winters in the
district. A few hundred dollars will be ample for repairs to all winter breaks on the mulch
surface. These conditions emphasize the economy of providing a mulch surface for gravel
roads. In contrast to our experience with the mulch surface our gravel roads required a considerable expenditure for repairs. On one stretch of 3 miles, where all traffic was stopped for
a few days, several thousand dollars were required for repairs.
Work carried out by the Department of National Defence.—Three camps^namely, Nos.
227, 226, and 203—were in operation at the beginning of the fiscal year, but early in May Camps
Nos. 227 and 226 were closed, leaving only Camp No. 203 on the work for the summer. These
camps, however, were reopened in September, 1935, and remained open during the balance of
the fiscal year.
The work has all been on Lougheed Highway No. 26r, in Kent Municipality, on Agassiz
Mountain, between Harrison Mills and Agassiz, and consists of widening, reduction of grades,
and elimination of excessive curvature; also the gravelling of completed portions. The work
for the most part is in rock and some very heavy side-cuts have been completed. Work is now
progressing on a through cut at the summit; this is short, but has a maximum depth of 35 feet,
and when completed will make a vast improvement on this road.
Channel Regulation, Suicide Creek.—In this connection the Bridge Engineer's report of
December 3rd is quoted as follows:—
" In co-operation with the Canadian Pacific Railway, channel regulation has been carried
out which has improved the situation very much as far as public works are concerned. It is
very probable, however, that further dredging will have to be done on the creek above the
C.P.R. bridge at a later date."
North Vancouver Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads and trails in the district,
strict attention being given to adequate drainage. The greatest proportion of maintenance-
work in the unorganized territory is still being carried out with relief labour. The ever-
increasing traffic on the Dollarton Highway necessitated constant maintenance of the gravel
surface and was a heavy drain on the small district appropriation. It is again strongly recommended that this road receive a permanent surface treatment. Construction and Reconstruction.—The only new construction in this district was that
carried out at Bowen Island; % mile of Settlement Road was built to give access to new
homes, Yz mile was reconstructed and widened, and lYz miles gravelled, which included Vz mile
of new gravel surface. A small section of the Dollarton Highway at Deep Cove was flush-
coated and is giving satisfactory service.
Bridges.—Two bridges in the unorganized territory received minor repairs. On Marine
Drive No. 67a, in West Vancouver, two trestle-bent bridges were eliminated and replaced with
culverts and fills. At No. 3, Rodgers Creek, a mass concrete-arch culvert 4 by 5 by 98 feet was
installed, and at No. 8, Sherman, a 30-inch concrete pipe was installed, the total volume of the
fills being 13,814 cubic yards.    Standard guard-fences were constructed at each fill.
Southerly Portion of Mackenzie Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads and trails in the district
and the travelled surfaces kept in good condition. Nearly all the work undertaken was done
by hand-labour, as by far the largest proportion of our work was carried out by men on relief.
As a dust-preventive, 2 miles of road scattered in the various business sections were sprayed
with Tarphalt with satisfactory results.
Construction and Reconstruction.—New construction of settlers' roads to the extent of
1.7 miles was undertaken, Yz mile of which has been completed and 1.2 miles slashed and burned.
The Department of National Defence made satisfactory progress on Relief Project No. 116,
Sechelt-Pender Harbour Road, having completed the section between Secret Cove and Pender
Harbour with the construction of 1 mile, in which the following quantities were handled: Solid
rock, 9,661 cubic yards; loose rock, 1,424 cubic yards; earth, 7,805 cubic yards; also 2,950
lineal feet of cedar logs hewn and built into culverts, 2,268 cubic yards of gravel excavated and
distributed. On the extension around the head of the harbour 7.25 acres were slashed and
1.75 acres grubbed.
Reconstruction and widening was carried out on various roads, totalling 2 miles. The
greater part of this was on the Gibson-Sechelt Road in the Wilson Creek section. The excessive curvature at Rat Portage Hill was eliminated, the grade greatly improved, widened, and
ditched.
Between Miles 1 and 2 on the Gibson-Sechelt Road 1,760 lineal feet of 2- by 3-foot ditch
were constructed; this was lined with heavy angular rock on the bottom and sides to prevent
scour due to the heavy gradient, and is proving very satisfactory.
New gravelling was done for a distance of 6.1 miles and gravelling renewal for a distance
of 2.9 miles on various roads throughout the district.
Bridges.—On Project No. 116, Sechelt-Pender Harbour Road, the Department of National
Defence relief crews, with the aid of a Provincial bridge foreman, constructed two standard
frame-bent trestle bridges, 106 feet and 96 feet in length, respectively; these were built on
curves and have masonry piers to above high-water mark.
Bridges reconstructed included one 60-foot span King truss and two trestle structures.
Eleven bridges were repaired and three converted to culvert and fills.
Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was attended to on all roads, and the filling-in of all
washouts due to storm damage has been completed. A total of 371,350 cubic yards of material
were required for repairs in the University area. The top surface of the main fill on Marine
Drive was given a 6-inch dressing of top soil and a series of flume ditches installed to prevent
surface-scour. These have been very satisfactory as practically no erosion has taken place
to date.
Construction and Reconstruction.—No new construction was undertaken during the year.
Major improvements were made on Marine Drive, along Spanish Banks, the roadway in this
section being entirely reconstructed on a new alignment for a distance of 4,916 lineal feet, with
a base of crushed rock 6 inches deep by 20 feet wide. This base received a light penetration
of Bitumuls only and has still to receive a 2-inch mulch-cap.
Drainage has been well taken care of by adequate ditches and all culverts are of reinforced-
concrete pipe. Standard guard-fences were constructed at danger-points, the total length of
which is 2,230 lineal feet.
2 I 18 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
At Deep Ravine, Marine Drive, a 30-inch reinforced-concrete pipe was installed, also a
concrete retaining-wall and 750 cubic yards of material filled in to replace an old crib.
To eliminate a bad curve and avoid the rebuilding of a trestle bridge, a diversion was made
at Musquam Reserve on Marine Drive. A new pavement was laid with a 6-inch penetrated
crushed-rock base and 2-inch mulch-cap flush-coated, and pebble-dashed, 1,200 by 18 feet.
Guard-fences were erected at danger-points.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The macadam surface of Imperial Street was brought up to a fair
cross-section where necessary, with a lean mulch mix and crushed rock. It was given a spray-
coat of Tarphalt B, and flush-coated with 80 per cent, heavy liquid asphalt, pebble-dashed with
bird's-eye, and rolled, the area covered being 7,600 lineal feet by 12 feet wide.
Relief-work carried out under the Department of National Defence.—Work undertaken
by the relief crews under the Department of National Defence within the University Endowment Lands area has progressed slowly. Grading of Chancellor Boulevard from the city
boundary to Acadia Road is 95 per cent, completed. During the year approximately 5,000 cubic
yards of material were moved in levelling the grounds of the University Hill School.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 3   (DELTA, NEW WESTMINSTER, CHILLIWACK,
AND PARTS OF YALE AND DEWDNEY ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Report of District Engineer, H. C. Anderson, New Westminster.
Delta Electoral District.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance-work on all highways was carried out with
generally satisfactory results considering the funds available for this work.
During the early part of the year a considerable amount of extra work was necessary
repairing damage resulting from the spring and winter flood conditions.
Construction.—Work was continued on the Peace Arch Highway, between Campbell River
Road and Elgin Road, by the Department of National Defence operating from Relief Camps
Nos. 205 and 206. This section of the Peace Arch Highway, 4.65 miles in length, is now 90 per
cent, completed. Progress has been very slow on this project owing to all work being done
with hand-labour.
In connection with the construction of the new highway traffic bridge over the Fraser River
at New Westminster, extensive surveys have been carried out to improve the approach from
the south side. The main improvement is the realignment of the highway from Peterson Hill.
The final line and grade have been established reducing the curvature from a reverse 10-12-
degree curve to a 2-4-degree curve, and providing for the ultimate construction of a four-lane
approach from the top of the Peterson Hill to the new bridge. Excavation is being carried out
under contract. At the end of the fiscal year the work on the Peterson Hill section was approximately 60 per cent, completed.
Surfacing.—Approximately 7% miles of gravelled roads were surfaced with asphaltic
mulch by contract on a unit price basis. The two most important roads treated in this way
were the Aldergrove-Bellingham Highway 77r, 4.04 miles, and No. 5 Road (Fraser Avenue
extension) 66r, 3.68 miles.
The surfacing of the Aldergrove-Bellingham Highway linked up the Trans-Canada Highway with the pavement on the American side. Since this road was surfaced there has been a
considerable increase in the traffic returns recorded at the Canadian Customs port. The
American authorities are at the present time further improving their highway leading to this
port, which will result in providing considerable relief for the present Pacific Highway.
The surfacing of No. 5 Road (Fraser Avenue) provides continuous pavement from the
Ladner Ferry to Vancouver.
In conjunction with Richmond Municipality, 3.54 miles of asphaltic mulch were laid on
No. 19 Road, the Department contributing on a 50-50 basis. This provides a bituminous-
surfaced highway from New Westminster to No. 5 Road. To provide improved road access to
Boundary Bay, a summer resort, 1.12 miles of asphaltic mulch were laid on Point Roberts Road
99b, in Delta Municipality, 50 per cent, of the cost being borne by the Province.
In Surrey Municipality 1 mile of asphaltic mulch was laid on the Campbell River Road,
thus completing the paving of the road from the Pacific Highway to White Rock; 2.91 miles of
Johnston Road 89b were also surfaced. DISTRICT REPORTS. I 19
All of the bituminous surface laid down during the past season withstood the winter frost
conditions exceptionally well, a fact which affords considerable satisfaction to the Department
owing to the extreme frost conditions experienced this year.
Bridges.-—No new bridges were constructed nor existing ones reconstructed. Minor maintenance-work on various structures in the district was carried out as usual.
Ferries.—The Ladner-Woodward Ferry was operated satisfactorily under private charter.
Silting of sand at the Ladner landing continues to be a yearly problem, requiring periodical
dredging, and it would appear that in the very near future it will be found necessary to extend
the landing out into the main channel of the river, as the side-channel on which the present
landing is now situated is gradually silting up. A new float was installed at the Woodward
landing, making a decided improvement in landing conditions at that point. Severe ice conditions during the winter compelled the ferry to cease operations for three or four days during
the month of February.
Satisfactory service continued to be given by the Barnston Island Ferry.
Chilliwack Electoral District.
Maintenance.—A considerable amount of work was carried out in this district during the
year, resulting in a large improvement to the main highways, which is greatly appreciated by
the travelling public. Extra work was required in the maintenance of the highways resulting
from the previous winter's floods in this district. The main roads which suffered were those
in the reclaimed Sumas area, which was under water for some months. Over 8,000 cubic yards
of gravel were required to bring the Abbotsford-Chilliwack Highway, through the Lake area,
back to its original grade. In addition to this, a number of small bridges and culverts were
replaced.
Construction.—In preparation for the surfacing of the highway between Abbotsford and
the Sumas Pumping Station, a contract was let for crushing the necessary 13,500 cubic yards
of aggregate, which was stock-piled adjacent to the highway.
Contracts were let on a unit price basis for the surfacing of the above highway, approximately 10% miles in length, which was satisfactorily carried out, thus providing a continuous
pavement from the City of Vancouver to Rosedale, a distance of 72% miles. Three and one-
half miles of the road between Chilliwack and Rosedale were resurfaced with a 2-inch asphaltic
mulch. The Department also contributed one-half of the cost of a carpet coat (1.85 miles) on
Sardis Road 62b, in the District Municipality of Chilliwack.
All of the new surfaeing-work withstood the winter frost with very little damage.
With a view to hard-surfacing the Abbotsford-Huntingdon Road 7r, commencement was
made on the regrading- of the section north from the Canadian Customs. Surveys were also
undertaken to prepare for the reconstruction of the Abbotsford-Mission Road.
Improvement was made on the Columbia Valley Road by a ^-mile diversion having been
made in the vicinity of Frost Hill, this work being carried out mostly by relief labour.
In conjunction with the Department of National Defence operating from Camps Nos. 208
and 209 at Jones Hill and Jones Creek respectively, a marked improvement was made on the
Hope-Rosedale section of the Trans-Canada Highway. With the use of two power-shovels,
trucks, and air-compressors, it was possible to undertake revisions eliminating some of the most
dangerous curves and gradients on this road. Approximately 5 miles of the existing road were
straightened and widened and otherwise substantially improved, bringing this section up to
the Department's standard for the Trans-Canada Highway. There still remains a considerable
amount of reconstruction-work to be carried out on this section before a satisfactory surface,
either gravel or pavement, can be maintained.
The pictorial evidence previously furnished showing the extensive damage to the gravelled
surface from frost conditions emphasizes the need for the reconstruction of this road to provide
the necessary drainage prior to hard-surfacing.
Snow-removal.—Heavy snowfalls during January and February involved considerable
expenditure in ploughing. For this purpose two tractor ploughs, one truck plough, and four
power-graders were kept in continuous service for a long period, resulting in practically
uninterrupted traffic. The snowfall ranged from 2 to 4 feet in depth. Approximately 80 miles
of main roads in this district were kept open by the Department's equipment. I 20 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
Bridges.—Several bridges on the main highways were redecked, using transverse ties and
longitudinal floor, the decks being treated with a bituminous flush-coat surface, resulting in a
better riding surface as well as adding to the life of the decks.
. Two bridges on the Rosedale Ferry Road were reconstructed with standard pile-trestle
approaches. A start was also made on a reinforced steel and concrete structure, which will
replace two wooden bridges on the Hope-Rosedale Road, about 7 Yz miles east of Rosedale.
Ferries.—The Agassiz-Rosedale Ferry continued to operate efficiently under private
charter until the severe ice conditions of February, 1936, which compelled cessation of service
from February 7th to March 7'th, inclusive. This is the longest shut-down on record for this
ferry due to ice conditions.
There was a considerable amount of damage from the ice to the protection-dolphins of the
winter landing at Rosedale, which will necessitate extensive repairs at the beginning of the
fiscal year.    It was fortunate, however, that the ferry itself escaped damage.
River-protection.—The work of clearing the channel of the Vedder River from the Vedder
Crossing Bridge to a short distance below the B.C.E.R. bridge at Woodroof was continued, and
the entire channel was successfully cleared between these points of all drift-logs, brush, and
other debris, with the object of keeping the main volume of the stream in the centre of the riverbed. All material moved was placed against the vulnerable sections of the bank and laced in
with cable in order to protect the banks from erosion and to block undesirable lateral channels.
The channel of this river is now in better condition than it has been for many years, and with
a small expenditure from year to year used to remove any driftwood, placing same in the
weaker points on the bank, there is no doubt that, within a few years, the river can be definitely
controlled.
Before the summer freshet of 1935 a vulnerable section of the Fraser River bank at Rosedale was protected by means of dressing the bank to a desirable angle of slope, and protecting
the slope by application of one-man rock secured in place by heavy wire mattress. The work
.was carried out by the Chilliwack District Municipality, the municipality and the Provincial
and Federal Governments sharing the expenses.
East Portion of Dewdney Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Practically all the work in this district was confined to the Trans-Canada
Highway and a short section of the Hope-Princeton Highway.
The usual grader maintenance on the main highway was carried out during the year and
a considerable amount of snow-removal work was done during the months of January and
February.
In conjunction with the Department of National Defence operating from Camp No. 347
at American Creek, the revision of the Hope-Yale section of the Trans-Canada Highway, from
Dewdney District boundary westward, was undertaken. Little progress was accomplished
on this section outside of clearing and stripping rock-cuts until the early part of November,
when a %-yard shovel, together with air-compressors and trucks, were moved on to the job.
Good progress was made considering the winter conditions and in view of the fact that a
large percentage of the material to be moved is solid rock. Approximately 1 mile of the
revision was completed at the end of the fiscal year, providing a very much improved alignment and grade. A standard road-bed width of 38 feet on fills and 34 feet in cuts, clear of
the ditches, was adopted, with a maximum grade of 7 per cent.
Also in conjunction with the Department of National Defence, work was started on the
section of the Hope-Princeton Highway between 4-Mile Creek and Hope, 3.4 miles in length.
Construction on this section is very heavy and progress was accordingly slow. However,
approximately one-half of the section to be constructed has been completed. With the completion of the above-mentioned section, 10 miles of this highway will be completed from the
Hope end.
Bridges.—Bridge-work in this district consisted of redecking and flush-coating of the
American Creek Bridge and flush-coating of the Hope Bridge over the Fraser River. Minor
repairs were carried out on various other structures in the district. South Portion of Yale Electoral District.
Improvement of the sections of the Hope-Princeton Highway already completed was
carried out by the Department of National Defence, implemented by the use of Provincial
Government equipment.
Repairs were made on the Hope-Princeton and Skagit River Trails to assist mining
projects in this area.
A new King-truss bridge was placed across the Skagit River at Mile 21, using hewn
timber from the bush.
New Westminster Electoral District.
The quick run-off of surface water from the higher elevations in D.L. 172 yearly causes
a considerable amount of damage. In an effort better to control and distribute the drainage
over several streets, the installation of built-up stave-pipe drains was commenced.
The River Road surfacing, undertaken the previous year, satisfactorily withstood the.
severe winter.
The heavy truck traffic on the northerly approach to the Fraser River Bridge calls for
periodical patching of the bituminous surfacing.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 4 (YALE, KAMLOOPS, SALMON ARM, REVELSTOKE,
NORTH AND SOUTH OKANAGAN, SIMILKAMEEN, AND GRAND FORKS-
GREENWOOD ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Report of District Engineer, R. M. Taylor, Kamloops.
General.—All roads were maintained, as far as funds would allow, from District Vote
appropriations and by the use of relief labour. A serious flood took place on July 1st in the
Kamloops, Salmon Arm, and North Okanagan Districts. This flood washed out several miles
of road and thirty-three bridges. Several miles of reconstruction-work was carried out in
North Okanagan between Vernon and Armstrong in preparation for hard-surfacing, and
hard-surfacing was undertaken in all electoral districts on portions of highway which were
suitable for this type of surfacing.
Work was carried out by the Department of National Defence relief crews in various
places in the engineering district and good results were obtained, particularly where Provincial
Government equipment and operators were used. Reconstruction-work was done on the
Cariboo Highway immediately east of Boston Bar, where the condition of the highway had
been dangerous on account of cribs having rotted out.
The National Parks Branch of the Department of the Interior (Federal Government)
took over the completion of construction of the west end of Big Bend Highway near Revelstoke
from the Department of National Defence, and good progress was made.
Barriere Bridge over the North Thompson River at Barriere was completed and many
smaller structures which were washed out by floods were replaced.
The dam at Tranquille Lake, which is used as storage for Tranquille Sanatorium Farm,
was washed out during the floods and has now been replaced. The water-supply intake-
works for Tranquille Sanatorium, which were also destroyed, have been partially replaced.
Snow-ploughing was very heavy during the winter in several districts owing to heavy
snowfall and high winds. This service is becoming more important each winter because
of the increase in auto stage and mail routes.
Yale Electoral District.
Roads.—Maintenance-work was done on all roads in this district, and major reconstruction-
work was done on Peterson Hill on the Coalmont-Princeton Road and east of Boston Bar on the
Cariboo Highway.
The Department of National Defence camps were closed early in June on the Merritt-
Spences Bridge Road, Merritt-Kamloops Road, and MerritWrinceton Road. The portion of
the Hope-Princeton Road within the Yale District, which is being constructed by the Department of National Defence, was transferred to Engineering District No. 3.
Good work is being carried out on the Cariboo Highway by the Department of National
Defence relief camps at Yale and Anderson Creek revisions.
After the month of June all maintenance-work was done by relief labour. I 22 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
Kamloops Electoral District.
Maintenance-work was started early in the spring and consisted of grading, culvert
replacement, and minor gravelling. Several miles of light reconstruction-work was carried
out on the North Thompson Highway near Barriere, B.C.
Heavy floods on July 1st caused serious damage to roads and bridges, and extra funds
had to be allocated to repair damage. Barriere River Bridge, an 80-foot Howe-truss span,
was completely destroyed, also many smaller bridges. A great deal of flood damage was
caused by the failure of old irrigation-dams.
Barriere Bridge across the North Thompson River was completed.
Heavy snowfall and high winds caused expensive snow-ploughing with equipment that is
far from satisfactory on account of age.
Ferries on the North Thompson were maintained, but these ferries have now reached a
point where a major replacement scheme will be undertaken immediately.
A major revision of the Trans-Canada Highway was undertaken between Deadman Creek
and McAbee Ranch, a distance of 8 miles, and is about 60 per cent, complete.
Salmon Arm Electoral District.
The regular maintenance was done on the trunk, main, and local roads. Particular
attention was paid to drainage and many culverts were installed with the funds available.
This work was done mainly by relief labour.
Snow-removal was expensive on account of blizzard conditions.
The necessary maintenance-work was carried out on bridges and ferries.
A severe storm on July 1st did great damage to bridges and roads. All bridges and
5 miles of road were washed out in the Chase Creek area, and severe damage was done in the
Mara Lake area. Twenty bridges had to be replaced, the chief one being the bridge over
Chase Creek.
Shuswap Lake Ferry, S.S. " Whitesmith," sank after leaving Salmon Arm on November
11th, and was beached near Canoe.    The ferry was salvaged and extensive repairs made.
The Scotch Creek-Sorrento Ferry, G.B. " Wright," broke down in attempting to break
heavy ice and was frozen in. A new channel had to be dynamited in the ice to get the ferry
ashore for repairs.
Eight miles of hard-surfacing were laid on the Kamloops-Salmon Arm Road between the
Kamloops boundary and Monte Creek, and 3 miles of asphaltic spray-coat east of Salmon Arm.
Work on the Canoe-Sicamous Road was continued by relief labour under the Department of
National Defence.
Revelstoke Electoral District.
The regular maintenance was carried out on trunk, main, and local roads, drainage and
the installation of culverts being the chief work, as funds were not available for gravelling.
Bridges and ferries were maintained and a considerable amount of repair-work carried
out on Hall's Landing Ferry.
Asphaltic spray-coat surface over a distance of 4.5 miles was laid in the district, the
work including preparation of subgrade and ditching.
The Department of National Defence, Project No. 102, have three relief camps on
Revelstoke West Road between Revelstoke and Three Valley. A road diversion 1 mile west
of Revelstoke was completed during the winter. This diversion eliminates a heavy grade and
bad curvature.
North Okanagan Electoral District.
Roads were maintained in fair condition with available maintenance funds assisted by
relief labour. The main highway immediately north of Enderby was given bituminous-
surface treatment for a distance of 6 miles. Reconstruction-work was carried out between
Vernon and Armstrong in preparation for surface treatment, and in this connection the
reconstruction of 1.5 miles of new road was undertaken at Larkin to divert traffic from two
railway crossings. Reconstruction-work was also undertaken on the Vernon-Edgewood Road
to eliminate the worst features of this road in the Monashee Pass.
Roads were snow-ploughed during the winter and little traffic restriction was necessary
to maintain them during the spring thaw. The northern end of the district was visited by heavy floods early in July, necessitating
heavy expenditures to recondition roads and to rebuild bridges.
South Okanagan Electoral District.
Roads were maintained in fair condition by District Vote funds and the use of relief
labour.
Six miles of main road due north of Kelowna and 2 miles north of Summerland were
given bituminous-surface treatment.
Standard pile-trestle bridges only were used in reconstruction on main highways.
The ferry service was again uninterrupted, except for a few days1 during extremely
troublesome ice conditions.
The Department of National Defence relief-men continued work on" the Westside Road,
eliminating many of the worst features on that road between Wilson's Landing and Westbank
Ferry.
Similkameen Electoral District.
The increasingly difficult task of maintaining dirt and gravel roads in this dry section
was undertaken as far as funds permitted.
A bituminous mulch surface was laid from Oliver to the border for a distance of 15 miles,
and 4 miles south of Penticton were flush-coated.
Marked improvement was shown in work carried out by relief labour between Princeton
and Hedley.
Considerable attention was given to mining trails and roads due to marked activity in
mining.
Work proceeded during the whole year on the easterly end of the Hope-Princeton Road
as a relief project under the Department of National Defence, the pioneer road having been
extended to within a mile of the Allison Summit.
Grand Forks-Greenwood Electoral District.
Regular maintenance-work was carried out on all roads in the district and drainage-work
was done on main roads in preparation for hard-surfacing.
Hard-surfacing was laid in Grand Forks and Greenwood areas and extensive repair-work
was done on bridges.
Snow-ploughing was heavy during the winter and heavy costs were entailed, particularly
between Cascade and Bridesville, on the Southern Trans^Provincial Highway.
ENGINEERING   DISTRICT   No.   5   (CRANBROOK,   FERNIE,   COLUMBIA,   NELSON-
CRESTON, KASLO-SLOCAN, AND ROSSLAND-TRAIL ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Report of District Engineer, E. S. Jones, Cranbrook.
General.—Dry weather conditions again made road maintenance very difficult. This
condition, coupled with the lack of power maintainers that were being used on the hard-
surfacing programme, resulted in most of the main roads being rough during June, July,
and August.
The reconstruction and hard-surfacing programmes were more than usually extensive;
the surfaces, especially in the East Kootenay, where the work was carried out under ideal
conditions, stood the winter weather test extremely well. In the West Kootenay area the
work was started too late in the season and the results, therefore, were not so satisfactory.
The remedy, however, will not be expensive.
Snow-ploughing operations were extremely light in the East Kootenays in comparison
with normal years.    In the West Kootenays the usual snowfall had to be contended with.
Cranbrook Electoral District.
The most extensive work carried out in this district was on the Cranbrook-Kimberley
Road, the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway at Yahk, and on the 7-mile road between Curzon
and the International Boundary.
On the Kimberley Road 2Yz miles were reconstructed, %Yz miles of ditching completed,
11,036 cubic yards of gravel were crushed, and 11.75 miles of asphaltic mulch laid. This leaves
a gap of 4.8 miles to be surfaced next year. At Cranbrook IY2 miles of mulch were laid north of town and % mile south.
Between Kingsgate and Curzon 2Yz miles of reconstruction-work was carried out prior
to hard-surfacing. From Kingsgate north 12.75 miles of mulch were laid. In connection
with this project the Department crushed 13,333 cubic yards of rock.
In connection with the Curzon railway-crossing elimination, the overhead bridge was
completed and 7,800 cubic yards of fill were placed.
The Department of National Defence relief forces completed their project at Ta Ta Creek.
During the season they laid down 13,500 cubic yards of gravel over a distance of 14.15 miles.
Snow-ploughing was very light during the season—the equipment only going out three
times during the winter.
Fernie Electoral District.
Important works were carried out on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway at Olson,
where 7 miles of surface were prepared for hard-surfacing, including ditching and gravelling.
A double spray-coat was laid between Fernie and Elko, a distance of 19 miles; 2 miles of the
same treatment were given at Michel and 1 mile west from the Provincial Boundary-line at
Crowsnest.
Drainage conditions were not satisfactory for 6 miles west of Fernie, with the result that
the surface broke and heaved.
Settlers' Roads.—One and a half miles of new construction were completed on the Eimer
Road; 6.9 miles of the old Canadian Pacific Railway grade were converted into a road. This
will constitute part of the McKay Road. New construction was completed on the Reid Road
for a distance of 1 mile.
The Department of National Defence relief forces carried on their work at Crowsnest
West Camp and the project is expected to be completed by next June. Slow progress was
made at the Roosville Camp, the project suffering from lack of equipment.
The roads were kept open all winter, with the total snowfall 5 feet less than last year.
Columbia Electoral District.
Important work was carried out on the Kicking Horse section of the Trans-Canada
Highway. Two miles of road were improved, which involved the moving of 34,000 cubic yards
of material, 75 per cent, being rock.
Preparatory work to hard-surfacing was done on the 8 miles between the park gates and
the junction of the Athalmere Koad and later hard-surfaced with asphaltic mulch. This
surface has stood the winter very well.
The Department of National Defence relief crews have been working all winter on the
Canal Flats Project, having moved 10,000 cubic yards of material, 50 per cent, being solid rock.
The snowfall was very light in this district and no difficulty was experienced in keeping
all roads open.
Bridges.—The Fairmont Bridge was renewed, the old King truss being replaced by a
50-foot girder span with pile-trestle approaches.
Kaslo-Slocan Electoral District.
A large programme of reconstruction was carried out in this district during the year.
One mile of the Nakusp-New Denver Road was reconstructed and brought to standard, 5,260
cubic yards of material being moved. On the Columbia River Road 3,400 lineal feet were
brought up to standard.
At Rosebery 2,000 lineal feet of road were brought to standard, 16,000 cubic yards of
material being moved. Two miles of reconstruction were carried out on the Slocan Valley
Road and gravelled. On the Nelson-Kaslo Road 5,000 cubic yards of solid rock were excavated
in the vicinity of the Kootenay Florence Mine, eliminating a dangerous section.
There was no large bridge programme in the district. Repairs on twenty-nine bridges
were carried out, four being replaced with culvert and fill.
Nelson-Creston Electoral District.
A total of 22,141 cubic yards of gravel were laid down on the main highway during the
season;   26.75 miles of ditching were completed. DISTRICT REPORTS. I 25
Extensive work was carried out on the Nelson-Castlegar section of the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway; Yz mile of reconstruction in solid rock was completed during the year.
The Taghum Diversion was taken over from the Department of National Defence and completed; 11 miles of ditching were completed on this section and 6.3 miles of mulch were laid
on various sections of this highway; the work, however, was started late in the season, which
will necessitate a large portion being relaid this spring. From Mile 1 west of Nelson a double
spray-coat was laid to the top of Taghum Hill.
During the winter the Department of National Defence relief forces started work again
at Shoreacres and Taghum;  owing to lack of equipment, progress was very slow.
On the Nelson-Balfour section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, dangerous
sections at Miles 3.6 and 9.0 were reconstructed and made safe for traffic. Between Nelson
Ferry and Willow Point 3 miles of bituminous spray-coat were laid and, although conditions
were not ideal to receive this treatment, the results were entirely satisfactory and it eliminated
a very bad dust nuisance. Reconstruction along this stretch is being continued with relief
labour. The Long Beach Diversion, although not completed, is open to traffic and is much
appreciated by all who have travelled the old road.
The Nelson-Nelway Road received a good deal of attention during the year, with the
result that, this spring, conditions were vastly improved. Most of the work consisted of
gravelling, as, with the amount of money available, it was not possible to carry out a large
programme of reconstruction owing to the heavy nature of the work. The total work
consisted of 7,000 cubic yards of gravel laid, 6 miles of ditching, and twenty culverts installed.
The Department of National Defence relief crews completed 1.2 miles.
The excellent work started at Sirdar has been completed; the whole portion is now brought
up to standard. Between Crawford Bay and Grey Creek, work with relief labour was
continued, 1,500 feet being completed through solid rock.
The Department of National Defence relief crews worked all year at the Goatfell East
Project. Only one small portion of new road, however, was opened up. Work was also
carried out during the winter at Goatfell West and Kitchener, the latter camp completing some
very good work.
Bridges.—The most important bridge-work was the renewal of the Goat River Bridge at
Creston. This consisted of a 185-foot Howe-truss span of creosoted timber. Improvements
were carried out on the main channel. This work will enable four existing bridges to be
eliminated.
The Boulder Creek Bridge was renewed with 45-foot steel beams with framed approaches.
At Crawford Creek a new 60-foot King truss replaced the existing bridge. A 40-foot steel
I-beam bridge was constructed across Redfish Creek.
Rossland-Trail Electoral District.
The majority of the reconstruction done in this district was carried out by the Department
of National Defence relief forces, augmented by Provincial-owned equipment. Approximately
40,000 cubic yards of material were moved, covering a distance of 5 miles that were reconstructed. In connection with this work, 230 cubic yards of dry-stone wall were constructed;
8,300 lineal feet of ditches and culverts, containing 32,000 F.B.M. of timber, were constructed;
10,912 cubic yards of gravel were laid down.
Bituminous mulch was laid down for a distance of 7 miles. Two miles of bituminous
spray-coat were laid on the Trail-Pend d'Oreille Road south of Trail.
The Murphy Creek Bridge was replaced by a 40-foot steel-beam span with 17-foot stringer
approaches.    Four bridges were renewed on the West Robson Road.
Snow conditions were about the same as usual.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 6  (LILLOOET AND CARIBOO
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Report of District Engineer, W. Ramsay, Williams Lake.
Maintenance of Highways.—Maintenance-work, as far as available funds would permit,
was undertaken on all the trunk, main, and more important side-roads, and included grading,
ditching, patch-gravelling, and placing additional culverts. I 26 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
The season for grading was shorter than usual, as heavy frost set in all over the district
during the latter part of October, when the temperature registered from 12° to 20" below zero.
The result was that the frost was well into the ground before there was much snow-protection,
and consequently road conditions were much worse in the spring, at many points, than in
previous years.
Snow-removal.—While at many points in the district, and particularly in the Bridge River
area, the snowfall was considerably less than that of last year, the winter period was longer
and on the Quesnel-Barkerville Road over $700 had to be expended on snow-removal in April.
Close to 900 miles of road were kept open, and at no time during the winter was traffic delayed
for any length of time.
It was found that truck ploughs handled many of the roads very satisfactorily, expeditiously, and economically, and an extension of this method of snow-removal is recommended
for many parts of this engineering district. During the month of February it was possible
to travel from Williams Lake to Ashcroft and return, a total distance of 300 miles, in 9%
hours' driving-time.
Improvements and Reconstruction.—Improvements consisted of widening and ditching
several stretches of highway, already on permanent location, and reduction of grade and
curvature on other sections, also a continuation of a gravelling programme started during the
previous fiscal year.
The following are the more important projects under this heading:—
Quesnel-Barkerville Road.—Gardner's Hill Section:   Heavy fill and improved alignment.
Wingdam Hill:   0.6 mile widened and alignment and grade improved.
Pine Grove:   Cut and fills made on a short diversion, cutting out two very bad curves.
Devil's Canyon:   Slides cleared and widening done.
Ketch:   Road raised and widened.
Slough Creek:   Curvature reduced and road widened.
Jack of Clubs Lake: Road raised and widened to 22 feet for a distance of 1 mile; 10 per
cent, of this work was in solid rock.
Total length of widening and reconstruction, 4.5 miles.
On Bridge River Road, widening of those sections considered most necessary was done,
above Goldbridge, near Minto City, and on either side of Ward's Ferry Bridge, entailing
altogether the removal of 17,000 cubic yards of material.
On the foregoing roads five power-shovels were employed for a part of the season.
On the Cariboo Highway from Mileage 76 through to Woodpecker, a distance of approximately 205 miles, revision-work was continued at Mileage 85 for a distance of 0.75 mile, 24
feet wide, with maximum grade of 8 per cent, as against 12 per cent, on the old road, while the
new alignment eliminates two dangerous curves. Fifty miles of right-of-way were brushsd
out the full width and several miles of new gravelling done.
Gravel surfacing was the principal work carried out on the Chilcotin Road. At Anahim
Reserve 1 mile of road formerly impassable in spring and fall was reconstructed and raised
well above ground-level. Culverts were installed and the surface gravelled 9 inches deep.
Similar work was done near Riske Creek, where 2 miles were gravelled.
On the Likely Road a short diversion was partly completed at Morehead Summit, reducing
the maximum grade from 18 per cent, to 9 per cent., and the work already finished assisted
traffic considerably during the winter months.
During the year a total of 42,025 cubic yards of gravel was laid down throughout the
engineering district. This comprised 11,870 cubic yards for North Cariboo District, 15,472
cubic yards for South Cariboo District, and 14,683 cubic yards for Lillooet District.
Unemployment Relief.—Unless in cases of direct relief, practically all relief recipients
preferred to work to the value of relief received, and, where it was difficult to find profitable
work during the winter months, camps were established in the early fall and the work done in
advance, while the amount earned was paid out monthly, to the end of the fiscal year. By this
method particularly good work was done on the Horsefly Road and on the Alkali Lake section
of the Williams Lake—Canoe Creek Road just before freeze-up.
Department of National Defence Relief Projects.—During the latter part of May the
camp on Project No. 117 at Squamish was closed down and therefore no progress was made DISTRICT REPORTS. I 27
during the year. Headquarters Camp still remains at Spences Bridge, but no work was done,
due principally to lack of heavy equipment.
Bridges.—Bridges were examined and work carried out as recommended by the Bridge
Engineer.    Rods and bolts in truss spans were tightened where necessary.
The principal structures erected during the year were as follows: Blackwater Canyon,
70-foot King-truss span; Wingdam No. 3, standard frame trestle on concrete pedestals;
Quesnel Forks, four 70-foot King-truss spans on pile piers and 90 feet of pile-trestle approach,
all 12 feet wide between wheel-guards; Batuni River, pile trestle 230 feet long; 150-Mile
Creek, standard pile trestle 68 feet long and 18 feet wide.
Protection-work.—River-bank protection-work was continued in the Squamish and Pemberton areas, and at the latter point the road-level was raised in several places to prevent
flooding during high water in Lillooet River.
On the bank of the Fraser Riyer at Quesnel a log crib 114 feet long by 11 feet in height,
and containing 3,400 lineal feet of peeled fir, was constructed to protect the bank from further
erosion.
Ferries.—Overhauling and conditioning of all ferries was given attention, and no
particular trouble was experienced in their operation. At Lytton Ferry, towers were reinforced and a new main cable installed.
Flood Damage.—Extraordinary flood damage as a result of cloudbursts was experienced
in some parts of the district, but more particularly in the Dog Creek and Churn Creek areas,
and the Department authorized additional funds to repair the damage.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The following sections of the Trans-Canada Highway were
bituminous-surfaced, namely: Lytton West, 2 miles; Lytton East, 10 miles; and Spences
Bridge West, 3 miles; while 7 miles of the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Road received the same
treatment, making a total of 22 miles, all of which has so far stood up satisfactorily to traffic
conditions.
General.—Throughout the district every effort was made to distribute the work amongst
as many people as possible and in North and South Cariboo a total of approximately 1,000
different individuals benefited to some extent from the operations of the Public Works
Department during the year.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 7   (PRINCE RUPERT, ATLIN, SKEENA, AND
OMINECA ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Report of District Engineer, J. C. Brady, Prince Rupert.
General.—Conditions throughout the district were very similar to those of the previous
year. An unprecedented flood occurred in October, 1935, otherwise climatic conditions were
about as usual.
Maintenance of Highways and Bridges.—Relief labour continued to be used to a considerable extent.
Exceptionally heavy rain and wind storms, culminating between the dates of October 24th
and 26th, resulted in much damage in an area extending down the Telkwa, Bulkley, and Skeena
Rivers, and also on the Kitsault River near Alice Arm and on the Port Clements-Queen Charlotte City section of Queen Charlotte Islands.
The Skeena River is creditably reported to have risen 24 feet, and Lakelse Lake 6 feet
above its highest known high-water level. Small tributary streams that heretofore had given
no trouble were raging torrents, bringing with them many years' accumulation of drift.
Our main losses were as follows: Pine Creek Bridge and Aveling Coal Mine Bridge on the
Telkwa River; Goat Creek Bridge, over a tributary of the Telkwa; Kitsequekla Bridge;
Copper River Slough Bridge; small bridges at Kitwanga and at Remo; Remo Ferry; bridges
at Rosswood at the head of Kitsumgallum Lake; Trout Creek Bridge on the Trans-Provincial
Highway between Smithers and Hazelton; Lean-to Bridge and Glacier Creek Bridge on the
Kitsumgallum Lake Road north of Terrace. Very little damage was done to the actual roadbeds in this area, except at Kitsequekla and at Glacier Creek. A gumbo-slide has filled the
road in sections extending over % mile at Kitsequekla, and a new road will be required for a
mile at Glacier Creek. The Bulkley Bridge at Smithers and the Bulkley Bridge at Hazelton
were saved, although drift was striking the lower members. At Alice Arm the Dolly Varden Railway Trail, which had recently been put in good repair,
was greatly damaged and it will cost $15,000 to repair. Emergency repairs had to be made to
the rock retaining-wall at Alice Arm which protects the streets of the town and the suspension
bridge at that point.
On Queen Charlotte Islands, Kumdis Bridge on the plank road between Port Clements
and Tlell was raised 2 feet by the water, but settled back in place. Most of the plank road was
under water. Culverts and some medium-sized bridges were taken out between Tlell and
Skidegate and water flowed across the road for several miles in low-lying sections. A landslide
occurred at Lawn Hill. The foreman reports it is possible to get around, but large rocks must
be blown to avoid danger. Temporary repairs were made as soon as possible, where feasible,
to let traffic by, and the more costy propositions, such as Aveling Coal Mine, Copper River, and
Dolly Varden Railway, have been reported in detail.
Trout Creek Bridge has been rebuilt as a 50-foot span-King truss, and the bridges near
Rosswood—namely, Douglas Creek, Hail Creek, and Maroon Creek—were also rebuilt.
A survey was made for the layout of Copper Slough Bridge and everything possible
arranged so that the work could proceed immediately funds were available.
Highway Construction and Improvements—Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.—Reconstruction in vicinity Fraser Lake: The road from Fraser Lake to the Fraser Lake Station was
widened to a width of 24 feet, gravelled, and all culverts put in; object, to improve alignment
and eliminate hill where road goes through railway fence.     (Completed.)
Reconstruction in vicinity of Drywilliam Lake, approximately 6 miles east of Fraser Lake
town: 2Yz miles of road widened to a width of 24 feet, straightened, and gravelled; object, to
improve alignment and eliminate a particularly bad portion of clay road, also bad curves.
There still remain approximately 2 miles of road at this point to complete in order to connect
the gravelled portions of the 24-foot road.
Reconstruction in vicinity of Fort Fraser, between Nechako River Bridge at Fort Fraser
and Nautley River Bridge at Fort Fraser Indian Reserve: 1 mile of road was widened to a
width of 24 feet and gravelled; object, to eliminate portion of clay road and bad curve at the
Nautley River Bridge. There still remain 2 miles of road west of the Nautley River Bridge to
straighten out and widen in order to connect this portion of road with the standard-width road
at Beaumont Railway Crossing.
Approximately 2 miles of gravelling was done at Fort Fraser.
Reconstruction, 4 miles west of Vanderhoof: Yz mile of low-lying road was raised 3 feet,
the fill base being 36 feet wide, surface of road 24 feet wide, gravelled, and hill at east end of
this section pulled down to eliminate bad hill and curve, thus improving grade and alignment.
(Completed.)
Reconstruction at Vanderhoof, % mile south of town: 2 miles of road were straightened,
gravelled, and widened to 24 feet; object, to improve alignment and eliminate clay road with
bad curves.     (Completed.)
Reconstruction, 2 miles south of Hulatt: M mile of road was cleared, widened, and
gravelled and culvert and fill put in, eliminating a particularly bad curve and improving
alignment.
A curve was eliminated in the vicinity of Barrett by relocation of % mile of road, slashed,
stumped, graded 26 feet wide, and gravelled. (Completed.) In vicinity of Knockholt, 1 mile
of road regraded to 26 feet wide, culverts put in, and gravelled. In vicinity of Forestdale,
Yz mile of road was regraded to 26 feet wide, culverts put in, and partially gravelled. At Rose
Lake Hill, 1,000 feet of road were widened to 20 feet, banks sloped, and gravelled.
Smithers Hill Diversion on Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, 1 mile east of Smithers:
This diversion, about Yz mile long, to eliminate sharp curves and steep grades, was made and
a part completed to join up with old road, but there still remains just over % mile to be graded
to complete the whole scheme. This piece was graded 24 feet wide, ditched, culverts put in,
and gravelled.
Mile 15, west of Smithers: About Yz mile of new road was graded 24 feet wide, culverts
put in, and gravelled, to eliminate two unnecessary curves.
John Brown Creek Hill, 19 miles west of Smithers: Yz mile of road was improved, regraded
to 24 feet, ditched, and gravelled, to eliminate sharp curves and steep grades. 	
DISTRICT REPORTS. I 29
Porphyry Creek, 30 miles west of Smithers: 114 miles of road were revised and regraded
to 24 feet, ditched, culverts put in, and gravelled, to eliminate sharp blind curves and steep
grades and narrow road.
New Hazelton Cut-off, 40 miles west of Smithers and leading into New Hazelton: This
diversion, 3Vz miles in length, was started in 1932 and partly graded; this year the diversion
was completed, graded to 24 feet in width, ditched, culverts put in, and gravelled. The diversion eliminates sharp curves and steep grades. Improvements were made to the old road for
1 mile west of this cut-off, by regrading, ditching, and gravelling, thereby completing the
gravelling from Smithers to Hazelton.
Skeena Crossing to Kitwanga: About 2 miles of this section were improved and cleared of
slides which had almost blocked the road. The remaining 9 miles were improved—graded,
ditched, and gravelled. The recent flood caused heavy slides, and now these 2 miles are filled
in and impassable.
Usk to Pacific: 3 miles of new construction-work was opened, and the right-of-way logged,
stumped, and made ready for grading.
The Northern Trans-Provincial Highway at the Prince Rupert end was completed to a
point beyond Cloyah Bay, 9 miles from the city limits. Revised notes were prepared for the
whole route from Prince Rupert to Hazelton, an estimated distance of 180 miles, of which 25
miles have been completed, 33 miles remain to be reconstructed, and 122 miles of absolutely
new road to be constructed.
No. 12b, Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road.—Reconstruction, 17 miles north of Vanderhoof:
% mile was widened, straightened, and gravelled, eliminating approximately 1 mile of very
crooked road which was previously only 10 feet in width.     (Completed.)
Reconstruction, 20 miles north of Vanderhoof, by construction of fill 70 feet long and
14 feet high, to eliminate Bear Trap Bridge and to improve alignment.
Reconstruction, 22 miles north of Vanderhoof, by construction of culvert and fill, improving
alignment of road, straightening out hill, and eliminating small bridge.     (Completed.)
No. 117, Fort St. James-Manson Creek Road.—Reconstruction, commencing at Fort St.
James: 13 miles of road were regraded to width of 20 feet, all culverts and all necessary offtake ditches put in; also 6 miles of this road were gravelled. North of Nation River, approximately 3 miles of road were constructed.
No. 21, Colleymount Road.—New construction: An extension approximately SYz miles in
length was slashed out and narrow-graded sufficient for winter traffic. From this point to the
junction of No. 90, Wistaria-Houston, lYz miles are incompleted.
Campbell Road.—A new road off No. 122, Uncha to Uncha Lake: lYz miles right-of-way
were slashed, stumped, narrow-graded, and culverts put in.    One mile still to complete.
No. 177, Aveling Coal Mine Road.—One mile of road was reconstructed (power-shovel side-
hill cut), fills put in, and grades cut down; 3 miles gravelled. (Completed.) Two bridges
were washed out on this road on October 24th.
No. 97, Quick Station Road.—Three miles of this road were regraded to 26 feet wide, all
culverts put in, cut-banks sloped, and 2 miles gravelled.    One mile of gravelling to complete.
No. 118, Topley-Babine Road.—This road was regraded and ditched for 20 miles, 800 feet
corduroy were covered with gravel, 9 new culverts were put in, 2 bridges were renewed—
namely, No. 537, Tashik No. 1, and No. 538, Tashik No. 2, both 40 feet long.
No. 19, Rose Lake Cut-off.—A dangerous reverse curve was eliminated by a 60-foot R.R.
culvert and a fill of 750 cubic yards.
No. 8b, Ootsa Lake Shore East.—Six miles of this road were narrow-graded, small cuts and
fills made, and all culverts put in. This makes an outlet for the most distant settlers east of
Ootsa Lake, which was the objective.
No. 200, Burns LoMe-Babine.—Reconstruction: Relocation of lYz miles, which were
slashed 40 feet to 60 feet wide, stumped 28 feet wide, and graded 26 feet wide, and all culverts
put in, fills made, and banks sloped; soft stretches gravelled. Three and one-half miles remain
to be completed to connect with No. 200, Taltapin Road.
No. 202, Telkwa Coal Road.—With the view of eliminating a section of this road which was
subject to gumbo-slides in the spring and wet weather, 1 mile of new location was started, the
right-of-way cut 50 feet wide, and side-hill grade made with power-shovel. (Fifty per cent,
completed.) I 30 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
Road from Smithers to Babine Lake.—A new location was Surveyed for 9 miles, % mile
slashed 40 feet wide, and stumped 10 feet wide. The survey was made too late in season to
permit further work, as adverse weather prevailed.
Bear River Road, South Atlin District.—This road was extended toward Meziadian Lake,
a distance of Yz mile, and 5 miles of the existing road resurfaced.
American Creek Trail.—This was widened to wagon-road width for a distance of 1 mile.
Premier and Big Missouri Roads.—These roads were partly widened and resurfaced. Extensive repairs were made to American Creek and Bitter Creek Trails.
Spruce Creek Road.—This road was widened, graded, and improved, to eliminate curves
and lessen grades. Owing to shortage of labour, work could not be started early enough to
complete this season. Other necessary improvements have been postponed until next spring,
owing to weather conditions.
Dease Lake Road Diversion.—This has been completed, but may need some extra surfacing
next spring.
Queen Charlotte Island Roads.—On the road from Masset to Tow Hill 0.3 mile was reconstructed near the Sanyan River and 0.3 mile of new construction built to eliminate bad section
of the beach formerly used for travel. There are 3% miles yet to build to place the road
entirely off the beach.
Between New Masset and Old Masset 0.3 mile of road was reconstructed to eliminate bad
curves. Harrison Avenue, in New Masset, was opened up for Yi mile to give access to dwellers
and boat-repairing industries.
The road from Port Clements to Queen Charlotte City was extensively improved and an
important diversion made at Clay Hill for Yz mile to eliminate dangerous curves on a slippery
gumbo grade. Some damage was done to sections of this road in last October's storm, but the
Clay Hill Diversion was not affected.
The portion of this road that is planked for 12 miles between Port Clements and Tlell will
soon need extensive reconstruction. The planking was laid in the first place as a temporary
measure some years ago, the intention being to construct extensive ditches and fill over the
planking.    Sections of this should be done as funds become available.
There is a considerable amount of rock-work to be done between Skidegate and Queen
Charlotte City.
Port Simpson.—One-quarter mile of new road was built to give access to residents. A new
road was built to the Stewart Cemetery, a distance of 600 feet.
Bridges Constructed and Reconstructed.—Fort Fraser Slough Bridge on Lily Lake Road,
1 mile south of Fort Fraser, was reconstructed. Bridge is of pile-bent construction, consisting
of eight 20-foot spans.     (Completed.)
Nautley River Bridge and Nechako River Bridge at Fort Fraser were redecked by laying
longitudinal decking over original deck. Cedar River Bridge, on trail from Rosswood to
Aiyansh, which was destroyed in flood a year ago, has been replaced. A new bridge was built
to replace the old Fiddler Creek Bridge, near Dorreen, to serve mining operations in vicinity.
Rainey Creek Bridge has been redecked. Bear River Bridge at Stewart was redecked;
new joists and stringers were put in and chords reinforced (bridge is 350 by 16 feet). Georgia
River Bridge on mining trail, Portland Canal, was entirely renewed and piers and abutments
were reinforced. Tlell Bridge over Tlell River, Queen Charlotte Marine Drive, Graham Island,
was rebuilt to replace old structure.
The Necoslie Bridge at Fort St. James was finished. The Nechako Bridge at Vanderhoof
was damaged by a fire of unknown origin in April. Prompt action on the part of the General
Foreman saved the bridge, and repairs were made costing about $900.
Ferries.—A new 5-ton ferry was built at Usk, and a small ferry was installed over the
Kitsumgallum River near the point where it issues from Kitsumgallum Lake. The Remo Ferry
went out in the October flood and is to be replaced by a new 5-ton ferry. The new standard
5-ton ferry for Finmoore has been completed and is ready for launching.
Unemployment Relief.—The conditions remained about the same as in the previous year.
In the aggregate, a great deal of road maintenance was done by relief-men.
Municipal Highways.—There was no change in the standing of the classification of these
highways. No. 72R, Arterial Highway at Stewart, was given two coats of Tarvia B for a
distance of 1,589 feet 18 feet wide, and 411 feet 50 feet wide. -
DISTRICT REPORTS. I 31
Machinery and Plant.—Advantage was taken to procure some road equipment at a much
reduced price from the Armour Towing and Salvage Company. This equipment was salvaged
from a freighter which was wrecked near Prince Rupert, the machinery being destined for the
Alaska Road Commission. A 1%-yard Chevrolet truck and a fine Adams leaning-wheel grader
were procured for Prince Rupert District.
A new Ford V-8 truck, 2 tons capacity, was purchased for Queen Charlotte Islands. The
old Model T Ford of 1928 was replaced at Prince Rupert by a 1936 V-8 model.
Under supervision of the General Foreman at Vanderhoof, two very fine trailer-cabooses
were constructed, the rear portions being fitted with bunks, the front portions used for oil
and gas.
A splendid unit of road-building machinery was purchased for Omineca District in the
shape of a 50-horse-power Diesel tractor with a Carco attachment. This is the best bulldozing
outfit we have had and is ideal for cutting down hills and filling hollows in the kind of soil
throughout most of the district.
A second-hand lighting plant was procured for the Vanderhoof workshop, the engine being
also used to operate other equipment.    A welding outfit was purchased for the Stewart shops.
Snow-removal.—In Omineca District snow fell to a depth of from 2Yz to 4 feet; 347 miles
of trunk and main roads were kept open and 100 miles of local roads.
In Atlin District, in the vicinity of Stewart, the snowfall was 11 feet 8 inches between
December 1st and March 1st. There was very little interruption to traffic this year throughout
the whole engineering district.
Surveys.—A diversion was surveyed at Swanson Creek on the Colleymount Road in order
to improve the location of the present bridge, which will soon have to be renewed.
North of Nation River about 12 miles of road were finally located. Nine miles of location
survey were run on the Smithers-Babine Road in the vicinity of Chapman Lake. A survey
was made for improved alignment at what is known as " Hairpin Turn " on the main highway
2 miles east of Telkwa.
From Smithers to Morieetown, 22 miles, a traverse was made of the present road and a
number of revisions surveyed and plotted. This will be of very great advantage in reconstructing various sections from time to time, as money becomes available.
Between Terrace and Remo an investigation was made to ascertain what part, if any, of
the present road is suitable for a permanent location and 1 mile of line was run with grades.
A reconnaissance was made from Prudhomme Lake to Wark Channel via Rainbow Lake
and very encouraging information obtained showing the possibility of avoiding a number of
switchbacks on a previously surveyed route, and also of somewhat shortening the road, and of
having to overcome a summit of only 800 feet as compared with 1,130 feet.
Further information for ferry-sites at Skeena City was obtained, especially with regard
to the action of ice at the worst time of the winter and how this would affect a ferry-boat
crossing at various possible locations.
Extension of the road system at Port Simpson was surveyed.
On the Kitsumgallum Road north of Terrace a line was run for the proposed change of the
road at Spring Creek, and surveys were made for improved alignment and diversions at Lean-to
Creek and Glacier Creek as a result of washouts in the recent flood.
A preliminary survey was made for a road between Kitwanga and Woodcock for a distance
of 4 miles.
A survey and plans were made of the Copper River Slough and vicinity in connection with
replacing the bridge which went out in the flood.
Surveys and plans were made for registration of the right-of-way at Smithers Hill Diversion and also at New Hazelton Cut-off.
Raihvay Crossings.—Plans were prepared and arrangements made for an overhead crossing on the Trans-Provincial Highway at New Hazelton. This is over the Canadian National
Railway and will replace two dangerous level crossings quite close to each other at this point.
An order of the Board of Railway Commissioners directs that 70 per cent, of the cost of this
crossing be borne by the Railway Grade Crossing Fund. The work was commenced at the end
of the fiscal year.
Trails.—Dolly Varden Trail was repaired and open for speeder traffic during the summer.
The severe storm in October did great damage to the railway.    Foot-logs have been put in, I 32 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
making the trail open for foot traffic. Owing to snow, nothing more can be done but keep it
open for foot traffic until spring.
Fifteen miles of Unuk River Trail were built this year. There is now a good pack-trail
from the International Boundary to Sulphur Creek, a distance of 20 miles. The trail should
be extended next year to serve further mining development.
At Haysport a new sidewalk was built for a length of 1,100 feet to serve stores and
dwellings and give access to the Dominion Government wharf without the public having to
trespass on the Canadian National Railway track.
Many trails throughout the district were repaired or extended short distances through
funds provided by the " Mines Development Act."
Protection-work.—A survey was made at Stewart to ascertain the inroads made by the
Bear River and to form a basis of report for further protection.
At Copper River some work was done to confine the river to the main channel and direct
the main flow under the suspension bridge. Had this protection had time to settle and silt up,
it would have been effective under ordinary conditions of high water, but it had no sooner been
finished when the unprecedented flood of October came along and swept it out, washing away
a long stretch of the bank as well, so it is advisable now to let the slough channel take what
water it will and build a bridge over this enlarged channel with suitable clearance.
Buildings.—Repairs were made to the foundations and a general renovating given to the
Court-house at Atlin Lake.
Other buildings throughout the district had the ordinary repairs and maintenance necessary.    There were no new buildings erected.
ENGINEERING SUB-DISTRICT No. 7a (FORT GEORGE ELECTORAL DISTRICT).
Report of Assistant District Engineer, J. W. Miers, Prince George.
Maintenance of Highways.—The spring break-up in 1935 was somewhat later than usual
and the run-off was heavy owing to excessive precipitation during the fall and winter months.
As a result, considerable difficulty was experienced during the spring maintenance period,
after which all main highways were maintained in good condition until " freeze-up."
Construction and Reconstruction of Highivays—Cariboo Highway.—In the vicinity of
Camp Creek and Cale Creek short sections were reconstructed on improved alignment and to
a wider standard; 7 miles were regravelled. North from Prince George improvements were
made in alignment at several points along McMillan Creek.
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.—One mile of the Fort George-Hazelton section was
reconstructed between Beaverley Creek and the Chilako River on greatly improved alignment;
another 1-mile section, between Miles 4 and 5, was similarly reconstructed. A 2-mile section,
between Miles 9 and 12, was relocated and the right-of-way cleared.
Fort George—Yellowhead Section.—Along Eaglet Lake 2 miles of side-hill construction
were cleaned out to the original width. At several exposed points on this section it was
necessary to protect the embankment from erosion by means of riprap. On the McBride-Tete
Jaune section 20 miles were graded, opening a passable road for automobile and other traffic
between these points; it is now possible to drive from McBride to Canoe River during- the
dry weather with little difficulty, the latter point being approximately 8 miles north of the
Kamloops Electoral District on the main line of the Canadian National Railways.
Other Highways.—A total distance of 16 miles of highway, chiefly settlement roads, was
surfaced with gravel, 10 miles of this work being undertaken by sleigh-haul.
Bridges and Culverts.—A 70-foot span King truss on pile piers and with pile-trestle
approaches was constructed over Small River on the McBride-Tete Jaune section of the
Fort George-Yellowhead Highway. At Baker Creek, on the same section, a July cloudburst
caused a washout, necessitating the construction of an additional bay at the east end. The
channel also was badly blocked with debris and had to be cleaned out. Several small frame
and pile trestles were reconstructed in various parts of the district, chiefly on the main highways; in most instances these replaced trestles of the five-stringer type which had become
unsafe for heavy loads. Minor repairs were carried out on a number of small bridges and
a large log-jam was removed from the bridge at the mouth of the Chilako River. Three concrete-pipe culverts, comprising one double 36-inch ■ diameter and two single
24-inch diameter, were constructed under fills on the Cariboo Highway, replacing old hewn-
timber culverts.
Ferries.—The usual service was maintained at Isle Pierre, Miworth, Shelley, and Croydon.
Garage.—The garage, built during the previous fiscal year, was completed with the laying
of a 6-inch concrete floor. The yard was fenced and all equipment moved over from the old
yard at South Fort George.
The need for equipment-sheds was very noticeable during the winter, when, owing to the
storage of equipment and snow-ploughs, there was little working-space available.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall varied from 95 inches in Prince George to 160' inches in
some parts of the district. The Cariboo Highway was kept open continuously and other main
highways to a total of approximately 200 miles were kept open, except for short periods.
The snowfall in this district has been 50 per cent, above normal for the past four winters
and the need for heavier or more speedy snow-removal equipment is a matter requiring serious
consideration.
Unemployment Relief.—Work was provided for a monthly average of approximately 500
relief recipients. Some trouble was experienced in May, when an organized body of these
men called a strike and attempted to tie up all public works- in the district. Until the strike
was called off some weeks later it was found necessary to have police protection for maintenance crews and on two occasions clashes occurred with pickets of from twenty to
seventy men.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8  (PEACE RIVER ELECTORAL DISTRICT).
Report of District Engineer, H. L. Hayne, Pouce Coupe.
Maintenance of Highways.—A patrol system using eight 4-horse graders was inaugurated
last May and 164 miles of main and local roads1 were maintained to a very fair standard. The
first year's operation warrants the continuance of this system and, if funds permit, its enlargement next year. By its operation, the large power units were released for more permanent
work and were kept busy all the summer in ditching and grading main and local roads. Maintenance on farm and settlement roads was taken care of by relief labour that could not be
brought to camps, but, due to lack of equipment, this arrangement was not very successful.
Due to especially heavy rains in July, floods did extensive damage to small bridges and
culverts, putting a heavy strain on district funds.
Highway Construction and Improvement.—The major project for the district was the
reconstruction of the Grande Prairie-Fort St. John-Peace Pass Highway. On this road 39.2
miles were brought up to a standard section and, where necessary, fills and culverts installed.
Five additional miles were grubbed and culverts installed ready for completion next year.
Near Fort St. John 2.7 miles of gravel were laid, and 15 miles between Fort St. John and
Cache Creek were widened, ditched, and drained.
On the Dawson-Moberley-Hudson Hope Road, the 3-mile diversion, commenced last year,
leading down to the Pine River, to eliminate grades up to 21 per cent., was completed and
3 miles between Groundbirch and East Pine were widened, ditched, and drained.
On the Fort St. John-Hines Creek Road, a new grade 2% miles long to eliminate grades
in excess of 18 per cent, was surveyed and opened for traffic, but considerably more widening
is necessary for a standard grade.
On the Fort St. John-Rose Prairie Road, work was continued on the grade in and out of
Montney Creek. The west side was widened and ditched where necessary and \Vz miles of
new grade on the east side surveyed and built with a maximum grade of 9 per cent.
On the new Dawson Creek-Sunrise Road, which shortens the distance from Sunrise to
rail-head by 6 miles, work was continued and 7 miles built, leaving 3 miles to complete in the
year 1936-37.
A new cut-off 4% miles long, from Fort St. John to the Charlie Lake-Fort Nelson Road,
to eliminate a bad hill and shorten the distance by lYz miles, was built.
Two miles of new construction were continued west from Sunset and a large mileage of
graded roads ditched and shaped.
Road Mileage.—During the year a new road register for this district was compiled from
information obtained in the field during the previous two years; this work has resulted- in
3 I 34 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1935-36.
the addition of 320.1 miles of existing roads, together with 20.5 miles of new construction,
to the total road mileage for this district, such roads not previously having been included in the
list. The new road register is the first complete register to have been compiled for this
district.
Bridges Reconstructed and Maintained.—Due to flood conditions in April and July, extensive damage was done to bridges. On April 24th the old Kiskatinaw Bridge was taken out
by ice. A temporary trestle 220 feet long was commenced on April 28th and opened for
traffic May 12th. This trestle held until July 8th, when the river rose to a height of 23 feet,
the highest water on record, and 144 feet of the temporary trestle went down the river. On
August 12th work started on the new bridge, a 180-foot Howe-truss creosoted1 span, 268 feet
over all, which was opened for traffic on October 16th.
In addition to the above, fifteen other structures ranging in size from 22 to 2001 feet were
washed out or badly damaged; two of these were replaced with 60-foot King trusses and a
40^foot King truss was built into the Hays Bridge to replace two bays washed out. Altogether,
1,191 feet of standard pile trestle and 286 feet of standard deck on crib abutments were constructed during the year. The High Level trestle continued to give trouble and extensive
repairs will be necessary to hold the east end in place. All other structures were adequately
maintained.
Ferries.—A more powerful tug was transferred from Revelstoke District to handle the
new scow at the Taylor's Ferry crossing of the Peace River and a better landing on the north
shore constructed 300- feet lower down.    Other ferries were maintained and kept as usual.
Unemployment Relief.—Owing to the extreme weather conditions in the Peace River District during the winter months, effective work cannot be done. Agreements were entered into
with relief recipients whereby they were paid their monthly allowances during thisi period, on
the understanding they would go to camps when called on. For this purpose, nine 20-men
camps were installed and were kept in operation all summer. This system proved very
satisfactory and no trouble was experienced in keeping the camps full.
By the end of the summer practically all back and current relief was brought up to date.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall in the district was about normal, but, due to the absence
of the usual high winds, very little drifting occurred, and snow-ploughing to the extent of
114 miles only was necessary and all main roads continued open for motor-vehicles during the
entire winter.
Buildings.—A standard six-bay equipment-shed was built at Pouce Coupe and a four-
bay shed at Fort St. John. The ground-plan of the Government Building was altered to
give more room for the Government Agent's department and the entire building was painted
outside and in. A new floor of 2- by 4-inch lumber laid on edge was put down in the
Government Garage and the roof painted.    All other buildings were maintained. INVENTORY OF ROAD MACHINERY AND PLANT.
