REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., September, 9th, 1940.
Hon. C. S. Leary,
Minister of Public Works, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the following report on the work and activities of the
Department of Public Works during the fiscal year 1939-40: —
GENERAL OUTLINE OF WORK.
The majority of the highway programme for this year consisted of reconstruction and
realignment preparatory to surfacing for the following year of the main trunk highways,
and also the surfacing of reconstruction carried out in the previous year; this being in line
with the Department's policy that the primary object of roads is to afford a means of transportation as economically as possible, compatible with safety and efficiency, and the first
principle to be observed is the laying-out and construction of trunk roads.
Local roads were also kept up and repaired, widened, and ditched as was necessary. All
work undertaken was satisfactorily completed. A great improvement in the maintenance of
surfaced roads was noticeable and all patching was done promptly and in a satisfactory
manner.
The continued increase of foreign cars entering the Province during the last three years
brought up the question of giving route numbers to the principal through highways in the
Province. After considerable preliminary investigation a scheme of route numbering was
decided upon and each route was allocated an individual number and marker of a separate
colour. Key-maps were also prepared for distribution to the public, showing the route
numbers, their colours, and the sections of through routes that were hard-surfaced. These
route markers will be erected during the year 1940-41 and the key-maps distributed to the
public.    This innovation should prove of great benefit to the travelling public.
DOMINION-PROVINCIAL WORKS AGREEMENTS.
As in past years, it was considered desirable in the general interests of the Province and
the Dominion that agreements should be entered into for the completion of certain important
highways that were of value to the Dominion Government, the tourist trade, and the development of mineral resources. Three agreements were entered into with the Dominion Government, which may be briefly outlined as follows:—
Roads to National Parks.
For the completion of the Kingsgate-Kootenay Park Highway an agreement was entered
into on June 30th, 1939, for an estimated expenditure not to exceed $600,000 over a period of
two years. The cost of this work to be borne half by the Dominion Government and half by
the Provincial Government. For the year 1939 the total expenditure not to exceed $380,000
and the Dominion Government's contribution not to exceed $190,000.
Mining Transportation Programme.
For the purpose of the development of roads to open up mining areas within the Province
and to improve existing roads in certain areas, an agreement was entered into, dated June
30th, 1939, whereby the Dominion Government agreed to spend an amount not exceeding
$240,000 and the Provincial Government would expend an additional sum at least equal to
half this amount, making a total proposed expenditure of $360,000.
In connection with the expenditures on tourist highways, it was considered essential that
the King George VI. Highway (previously known as the Peace Arch Highway) be completed
and it was mutually agreed that the Dominion contribute a sum not exceeding $340,000 and
that the Province would contribute a like sum, the total expenditure not to exceed $680,000. P 4
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1939-40.
RELIEF OF SINGLE HOMELESS MEN.
Owing to the decline in the numbers of single homeless men and transients migrating to
the Pacific Coast and to the change in policy in the treatment of this class of relief recipients,
no highway-construction camps were operated in conjunction with the Labour Department.
HIGHWAY-CONSTRUCTION.
Continued satisfactory progress was made on the highway from Kingsgate to the Koote-
nay National Park by reconstructing old portions of the highway in preparation for surfacing during 1940, also by hard-surfacing parts of the highway reconstructed last year. The
5-mile diversion of the Island Highway near Cowichan Bay was hard-surfaced and commencement was made with the relocation of the Island Highway between Mill Bay and the
Cowichan Bay Diversion. When finished this new diversion will complete a modern, safe,
and picturesque highway from Mill Bay to Duncan. King George VI. Highway (previously
known as the Peace Arch Highway) was completed with a gravel surface and was prepared
in readiness to receive hard-surfacing during 1940. An important diversion of the Trans-
Canada Highway between Jones Creek and Hunter Creek, having a length of 2.16 miles, was
constructed. This diversion now completes the reconstruction of the Trans-Canada Highway
between Jones Creek and Hunter Creek, a total distance of 5 miles, eliminating two railway
crossings.
SURFACING.
New bituminous surfacing carried out during the year comprised 69 miles of mulch and
44 miles of spray-coat work. In addition to this, new work consisting of improvements to
and renewal of existing surfaces was carried out on 170 miles of road. Further details of
the surfacing programme are given in the Surfacing Engineer's report.

details reference may be made to the district reports.
MAINTENANCE OF ROADS, BRIDGES, AND FERRIES.
As in the past, the satisfactory maintenance of roads, bridges, and ferries was carried
out, this work being undertaken from funds in the " District Vote." As in past years, much
good work of maintenance and minor betterment was also done by men in return for direct
relief.
FLOODS.
During the year there were some floods in various sections of the Province which caused
some anxiety and did a certain amount of damage to- highways and bridges. Heavy rains
caused flood damage in Alberni and Zeballos areas and also in the Courtenay District. In
the Peace River District, Moose River Bridge was washed out on two occasions and had to
be replaced.   REPORT OF CHIEF ENGINEER.
P 5
SNOW-REMOVAL.
There was an exceptionally light fall of snow throughout the Province during the year
and snow-ploughs were not in use on Vancouver Island, and for one day only in the Lower
Fraser Valley. Throughout the Province, 4,482 miles of roads were kept open by snow-
ploughing, involving a total of 40,319 snow-plough miles at an average cost of $10.80 per
mile kept open. During the previous year 7,400 miles of road were ploughed and kept open
at an average cost of $23.04 per mile.
ROAD MILEAGE.
Elsewhere in this report will be found the usual statement of mileage and type of construction of Provincial highways. The total of 21,126 miles shows an increase of 355 miles
over the previous year. This increase is not necessarily all due to new construction. District
officials periodically revise their road registers and adjustments are necessary from time to
time. It will be noted that the Provincial highway system includes 502 miles of municipal
highways, classified as arterial, primary, or secondary. The total mileage may be classified
as follows:—
Trunk and main highways     6,691
Local roads     5,125
Settlement, industrial, and mining roads     9,310
Total  21,126
In addition, there are 10,288 miles of trails on the registers, of which 6,000 miles are
classed as mining-trails.
BRIDGES.
This subject is fully covered in the report of the Bridge Engineer and in the district
reports; a tabulation is attached showing the major work carried out in bridge construction
and reconstruction.
PATTULLO BRIDGE.
The figures for vehicles using this bridge during the year continue to show an increase
over the previous year and the traffic passing across amounted to, during the fiscal year
1939-40, 1,869,060 vehicles producing a revenue of $267,535. Since the opening of this bridge
more than 4,000,000 vehicles have passed over the structure.
FERRIES.
A tabulation is attached showing the traffic carried by all the more important ferries.

CLASSIFICATION OF HIGHWAYS  (PART III., " HIGHWAY ACT").
Attached is a statement showing all municipal highways, classified as arterial, primary,
and secondary, respectively, under Part III. of the " Highway Act."
The totals as at March 31st, 1940, were as follows:— Miles.
Classified as arterial  323.59
Classified as primary     59.75
Classified as secondary  119.09
Total  502.43
Such changes in classified highways as were made were duly reported in The British
Columbia Gazette, as required by'the Statutes.
HIGHWAY TRANSPORT BRANCH.
Under the "Public Utilities Act" (chapter 47 of the Statutes of 1938), the Public
Utilities Commission was granted certain jurisdiction regarding the regulation of persons
who own or operate motor-vehicles for transportation of passengers or freight for compensation. To some extent these provisions were similar to the provisions of Part V. of the
" Highway Act." Therefore, by agreement between the Public Utilities Commission and the
Minister of Public Works, which was confirmed and authorized by Order in Council, approved
May 2nd, 1939, administration of Part V. of the " Highway Act " was transferred to the
Public Utilities Commission. A statement of licence-plates issued during the licence-year
ended February 29th, 1940, is embodied elsewhere in this report.
GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS.
The report of the Chief Architect, attached hereto, outlines the activities of the Architectural Branch of the Department.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Several revisions and additions were made to the standard specifications prepared by the
Department, more especially respecting concrete-arch culverts.
All accounting for unemployment relief continued to be done by the Accounting staff of
the Public Works Department.
Correspondence comprised 40,500 inward and outward letters.
In conclusion, it gives me great pleasure to place on record the loyalty and efficiency of
the various officials of this Department and to commend the high standard of their work.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
A. DIXON,
Chief Engineer.
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECT.
NEW BUILDINGS.
The Architectural Branch has been very active during the year, with the plans completed and the work well in hand for the following new buildings: Kelowna Hospital;
Women's Gaol, Oakalla; Preventive Medicine Building, University of British Columbia;
Mount St. Mary's Hospital, Victoria; T.B. Hospital, Victoria, for Sisters of St. Ann; new
Government Buildings, Stewart, Pouce Coupe, and Creston; Cottages and workshop, Borstal
School, New Haven;   New generator, Tranquille;   and addition to Princeton Hospital.
The above represents an expenditure of over $1,000,000.
The new office buildings at Kamloops, Creston, Stewart, and also the Workmen's Compensation Board Building and Motor-vehicle Building, Vancouver, are now under the complete direction of this office for all services, as they do not house any agency.
I wish to express to Mr. H. L. Taylor and his staff my sincere thanks for all the assistance rendered to this Branch in the preparation of plans and specifications for the electrical work in connection with all our new work for some years past. REPORT OF BRIDGE ENGINEER. P 7
THEIR MAJESTIES' VISIT.
During this fiscal year, British Columbia welcomed Their Majesties the King and Queen
to this Province. This Branch was responsible for the alterations and improvements at
Government House for the use of Their Majesties, as well as the various arrangements for
their visit to these Buildings and decoration of other Government Buildings throughout the
Province.
I would like at this time to express to Mr. Tyson and the various tradesmen under his
direction my thanks for the untiring and excellent work they did in connection with this visit.
I might add that the two thrones used in the Legislative Hall were designed in this office and
the work carried out in our own carpenters' shop.
REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE.
We have been able to place some of our smaller Government Buildings in first-class condition, having thoroughly overhauled them, and I would like to continue this practice until
we can get them all in first-class condition.
SCHOOLS.
The Branch has forwarded to various  School  Boards  plans  and specifications  of our
standard schools, and erected the new Consolidated School at Ganges, also additions to schools
at Wellington, Gibsons Landing, Campbell River, Tsolum, and Oyster River, and new six-
room school at Hedley.
FURNITURE.
This has been well kept up to date, along with typewriters and other machines.
H. Whittaker,
Chief Architect.
REPORT OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEER.
Conditions generally were unsettled, especially towards the end of the year. Costs of all
materials gradually increased and deliveries became more uncertain. Fortunately, there was
no scarcity of skilled workmen prepared to render good service.
The national emergency demanded a drastic restriction of expenditures. As a consequence, much attention was directed to maintaining structures in service that would have
been renewed under normal conditions. A large programme of extraordinary repairs and
reinforcements was made necessary to render old structures safe for the ever-increasing
traffic.
On sections of our main highways where major improvements were in progress, an effort
was made to reconstruct the bridges to permanent or semi-permanent designs. Among these
are the following: Cougar Creek and Millstone Bridges, on the Island Highway; Jones
Creek, Lorenzetti, Hunter Creek, and Texas Creek, on the Trans-Canada Highway; Nicomekl,
Serpentine, and Bear Creek, on the King George VI. Highway; and Sandy Cove on Marine
Drive, West Vancouver.
These are all steel and concrete or creosoted timber and concrete bridges, with concrete
roadways, sidewalks, etc. They are quite fine structures—a credit to all engaged in their
construction.
Several major timber structures were also renewed, such as: Oyster River, Comox
District; Cowichan Station, Cowichan District; Kaslo Bridge at Kaslo; and Bear Creek,
Nelson-Creston District.    A large number of minor structures were also renewed.
On the new Manson Creek Road, in Omineca District, four new bridges of moderate size
were built.
New ferries were constructed to provide crossings of the Kootenay River to Nick's Island,
in the Nelson-Creston District; and of the Pine River, in Peace River District. The latter
is our largest reaction ferry, having a capacity for 25 tons, and forms a part of the project
to open up the oilfield at Commotion Creek.
Credit is due to the whole staff for a satisfactory year's work accomplished under rather
trying conditions, brought about by the threat and, finally, the onset of war.

REPORT OF THE MECHANICAL SUPERINTENDENT.
INSPECTION OF EQUIPMENT AND MACHINERY.
The equipment and machinery operated by the Department is in excellent condition.
The new Diesel auto patrols and tractors have given excellent service in maintenance,
construction, and snow-removal work.
During the fiscal year 1939-40, every district in the Province was visited and detailed
reports covering the inspection of each unit operated by the Department are on file.
The repair-work undertaken in our garages is of a very good standard, and this in conjunction with the new garage equipment and tools which have been purchased and installed
in our workshops has been a decided factor in keeping down the maintenance cost.
New equipment purchased during the fiscal year 1939-40, including garage equipment
and tools, amounted to approximately $285,000.
POWER-FERRIES.
The new ferry for the Kelowna-Westbank service was completed and launched on May
18th, 1939, at Kelowna. The new vessel is of steel construction throughout and was designed
and constructed in accordance with the best modern ship-building practice. The hull was
built by Hamilton Bridge Western, Limited, Vancouver, and the two 160-horse-power Diesel
engines were supplied by the Vivian Engine Works, Vancouver. The ferry is double-ended,
which eliminates the necessity for making a turn after landing, and consequently saves considerable time in handling traffic. It has an over-all length of 140 feet, breadth 43 feet, speed
10 knots, and accommodation for 150 passengers and thirty average sized cars. It was
named " Pendozi," for the first missionary in the Okanagan District.
All ferries operating subject to the provisions of the " Canada Shipping Act" were inspected and certified by the Dominion Steamship Inspector. The undernoted power-ferries
were inspected and reported on:—
Ladner-Woodward. Taylor Flats.
Agassiz-Rosedale. Kootenay Lake.
Castlegar. Needles-Fauquier.
Nelson. Creston.
Harrop-Longbeach.
LAUNCH.
A new launch constructed for the Department for the transportation of departmental
officials engaged in survey and inspection work in the coastal sectors of the Province was
launched on July 27th, 1939, at Victoria. The vessel has an over-all length of 60 feet, breadth
15 feet 6 inches, speed 9 knots, and accommodates six persons in addition to the crew, which
comprises an engineer and deck-hand. The power plant is a 120-horse-power Vivian Diesel
engine and a Ruston-Lister Diesel auxiliary runs the lighting plant, fire and bilge pumps, and
air-compressor.    The cruising radius of the new launch is approximately 1,200 miles.

REPORT OF THE LOCATING ENGINEER.
During the year eight surveys totalling 80.2 miles were made. In addition, numerous
reconnaissances were carried out, on which no field parties were used. The work was distributed over ten electoral districts. In some cases a proportion of the costs was borne by
the districts, but generally funds were provided out of the special vote for surveys. The
personnel used in most instances came from the district where the work was being done, but
in several major surveys the chief of the party and instrument-men were supplied from
Headquarters and the final estimates prepared at Kamloops Office. This arrangement worked
out satisfactory and helped the various districts to keep a field engineer continuously employed.
It is hard to work out an average cost per mile of line run, as conditions in the different
parts of the Province vary to a very great extent; also in many cases the locations are only
improvements to the existing roads and the class of work done varies considerably.
The following costs are based on 157.5 miles of surveys run for the last two years, and
are shown under three classes of work:— Per Mi]e
(1.)   Preliminary surveys with paper locations through new country
where no previous roads existed  $195.20
(2.)   Complete final locations through new country where no previous roads existed    400.00
(3.)   Complete relocation of existing roads     195.40
All instruments in the Province were checked and, where necessary, repairs were
arranged and paid for out of the survey vote. Instruments were moved from one district
to another as required. Some new camp equipment was purchased and is available for
major surveys.

DISTRICT REPORTS.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 1 (VANCOUVER ISLAND AND THE ISLANDS).
District Engineer, W. W. Bell, Victoria.
Alberni-Nanaimo Electoral District.
General.—General maintenance was carried out by local crews in all sections in an efficient manner.
Weather conditions: Dry summer and mild winter with light snowfall. Heavy rains
during the winter caused considerable flood damage, especially in the Alberni and Zeballos
areas.
Operations.—Highway improvements included reconstruction and widening on the following roads: Great Central Lake Road, 3.4 miles; Beaver Creek Road, 2.8 miles; Island
Highway at Wellington, 1.7 miles; Chase River Road, approximately 1 mile. At Zeballos
and Bedwell River, 3.9 miles of mining-roads and 28.1 miles of mining-trails were constructed.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Bituminous mulch and respray work was carried out on the
Canadian Highway, Island Highway, and South Wellington Road; also on various roads in
the Nanaimo area.
A number of bridges were reconstructed during the year, including a reinforced-concrete
slab and steel structure on the Island Highway over Millstone Creek, north of Nanaimo.
Many other bridges were repaired and maintained.
Unemployment Relief.—The average number of relief-workers shows a slight increase
over the previous year, mostly in the Nanaimo area.
Cowichan-Newcastle Electoral District.
General.—General maintenance has been carried out in all sections of the district in an
efficient manner.
Weather conditions in general were exceptionally good, summer being dry and mild
winter, with very light snowfall. Some damage was caused by heavy rains during winter,
necessitating river-bank protection on Cowichan River, south of Duncan.
Operations.—Further work was carried out with relief labour on the Oyster Bay Diversion on the Island Highway, north of Ladysmith.
Bituminous Surfacing.—On the Island Highway (Cowichan Bay Diversion) 4.28 miles
were resurfaced with mulch and 1.10 miles mulched in various sections that were reconstructed the previous year. On the Primary Highway to Cowichan Lake, 1.30 miles were
reconstructed and mulched.
Bridges.—Cowichan Station Bridge was replaced with 100-foot creosoted Howe truss on
concrete piers, and numerous other bridges were repaired and maintained as far as funds
would permit.
Unemployment Relief.—There was a slight increase in the number of relief-workers over
the previous year. _ _ _
Comox Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Improvements.—No major construction was undertaken during the year. Bunker Creek Diversion, % mile long, was started and 95 per cent, completed.
This diversion did away with Bunker Creek Bridge and improved the crossing of Canadian
Collieries (D.) Company Railway.
Bridges.—Cooks Creek Bridge and approaches were completed. Cougar Creek Bridge,
a 50-foot steel beam with concrete abutments, was built. Oyster River Bridge, a 180-foot
span through Howe truss with laminated chords, was built and 12,000-yard fill approach was
put in. Black Creek, a 145-foot trestle on concrete footings was built. Other bridges
repaired and maintained.
In November and again in December very heavy rains from Qualicum north brought all
rivers and streams up, causing considerable damage and anxiety. Oyster River was over its
banks, Tsolum and Puntledge Rivers at Courtenay flooded the lower ground, Island Highway
was flooded in several places.    China Creek Bridge went out.
Maintenance of Highways.—Usual maintenance carried out on all roads, relief labour
being used. DISTRICT REPORTS. P 11
Surfacing.—On the Island Highway 3.30 miles new mulch was laid (Mile 149.5 to Mile
152.8), 3.20 miles new double spray on Merville-Headquarters Road, and 11.66 miles of single
respray.
Ferries.—Denman Island Ferry operated throughout the year under contract with Messrs.
Baikie Bros., Denman Island.
Snow-removal.—No snow-ploughing was necessary this winter as only a couple of light
flurries occurred.
Esquimalt Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—Two notable improvements on the Island Highway were completed during the year. These were situated on the Malahat and at Cobble
Hill. The former is a relocation and grade revision, eliminating excessive curvature near the
summit of Malahat Drive; the latter is 4 miles of new construction on a completely new
alignment in continuation southwards of the recently completed revision from Duncan.
General maintenance on all roads embraced small improvements at various points.
In the immediate vicinity of Victoria the highway traffic has greatly increased in volume
and weight, and is continuing to do so with considerable effect on the highways travelled.
Despite this, maintenance has successfully met the situation.
Road-signs have been given necessary attention.
Surfacing.—Resurfacing of some improved sections of highways was carried out, but
generally the scope of this phase of the work was concerned with maintenance of existing
surfaced roads.
Employment.—New projects of various kinds have gradually lessened the number of
persons formerly without employment. It is also noted that workmen formerly relying on
public works for their livelihood are now otherwise employed. It is expected that this
tendency will continue.
Bridges.—No new construction of note was undertaken, general maintenance was satisfactory.
Weather.—Climatic conditions were mild during the winter and without snowfall or other
unusual conditions.
Islands Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—The only new construction carried out during
the year was a section of new main highway linking the East and West Saanich Roads. This
work was carried out by the contractors for the Dominion Government to substitute for roads
closed on account of airport-construction. A standard type highway was built and gravel-
surfaced, to be maintained in that condition until the succeeding summer when asphalt surfacing will be undertaken.
Other work carried out was in the nature of general improvement of existing roads,
drainage and culvert renewals, and clearing roadsides of brush.
Road-signs were given particular attention.
Usual maintenance was carried on, but on some roads this was increased by reason of
heavy haulage in the vicinity of Patricia Bay.
Surfacing.—Attention was mainly directed to the resurfacing of weakened sections and
to improving the riding quality of some portions. Nothing new was undertaken. On the
Fulford-Ganges, Vesuvius, North End, and Ganges Lower Road on Saltspring Island 8.5
miles of respray-work was carried out.
Traffic.—Through the year and particularly in the vicinity of Sidney and Patricia Bay,
the volume and weight of traffic increased very considerably, owing to the construction-work
in progress.
Employment.—The general improvement in the business of the district was reflected in
the rapid decline in the number of unemployed persons. In this regard it is pointed out that
the Public Works office at Sidney and the Road Foreman in charge were called upon to act in
the capacity of employment agencies when labour was hurriedly required in connection with
Dominion Government projects. The additional time necessary was willingly given by the
local officials of the Department.
Weather.—The winter was open and mild without severe frost or snow. There was
considerable rainfall between September and March. P 12 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1939-40.
Bridges.—The Longdon Bridge was replaced with culvert and fill and the Fulford Bridge
was replaced with standard frame trestle on improved alignment. Various other bridges
were repaired and maintained.
Saanich Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—No new highway-construction was undertaken
during the year. Improvement was made to the main traffic route on Saanich Peninsula by
widening the existing 18-foot pavement to 24 feet over a distance of 4 miles. This work has
been much appreciated by road-users on this heavily travelled route.
A narrow portion of the West Saanich Road having very poor visibility was much improved by work undertaken there.
Two intersections on Burnside Road were also much improved.
General maintenance was carried on in the usual satisfactory manner.
Surfacing.—Bituminous surfacing was only carried out in conjunction with the improvement-work previously mentioned.
Weather.—Weather conditions were generally such that no inconvenience or damage was
caused and there was no snowfall.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 2   (BURNABY, DEWDNEY, NORTH VANCOUVER,
VANCOUVER-POINT GREY, AND MACKENZIE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, E. H. Verner, Vancouver.
Burnaby Electoral District.
Construction.—The construction of the Central Arterial Highway 17r was resumed
under the Dominion-Provincial Agreement. Four and one-half miles from Boundary Road
to Underhill Avenue were placed under contract in July. Owing to an exceptionally wet
autumn and winter, the work was not completed. Grading is 95 per cent, completed and
gravel surfacing 15 per cent, completed.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The % mile of the Coquitlam Road 10r, reconstructed last year
near Essondale, was given a double spray-coat, and an additional 0.9 mile of surfacing
immediately west of this section was trued up with asphaltic mulch and given a seal-coat.
On the same road through Maillardville the existing surface was widened 4 feet with
asphaltic mulch.    This much-needed widening is greatly appreciated by the travelling public.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was very light during the winter, and no difficulty was
experienced in keeping the roads open.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance of roads and bridges was carried out.
Dewdney Electoral District.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Lougheed Highway 26r on Agassiz Mountain was
resumed under contract.    The heavy through cut on the summit was completed and gravelled.
The Wharf Road at Harrison Hot Springs was extended % mile to the new wharf built
by the Federal Government. This road-work was all in rock and was completed by Department forces on a day-labour basis.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The surfacing of Hammond Loop 59r was completed by giving
the final Vs mile a double spray-coat.
On secondary highways, Mission Municipality laid 3.50 miles of asphaltic-mulch surface,
Maple Ridge Municipality laid 0.50 mile of mulch and Pitt Meadows Municipality 0.25 mile
of mulch—all 18 feet wide.
Snow-removal.—A very mild winter was experienced and the snowfall was light; consequently snow-removal presented no difficulties.
River-bank Protection.—The protection of the west bank of the Fraser River at a point
east of Agassiz was resumed on a fifty-fifty basis with the Federal Government. The work
consisted of reinforcing the existing protection between the timber groynes by placing rock,
and the placing of a new rock face on the bank for a distance of 600 feet below the groynes.
All this work has held well.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance on roads and bridges was carried out throughout
the district. o

Mackenzie Electoral District (North).
Construction.—No new construction-work was undertaken during the year. Six hundred
feet of road were constructed at Bella Coola to eliminate a bad curve.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance was carried out on all the roads by tax and relief
workers. Widening and ditching, slashing and burning brush, several new culverts and
several culverts repaired. Considerable patching of surfaced roads and many miles of gravel
renewal.
There was a considerable decrease of relief-workers during the latter half of the year—
35 per cent, less than at the corresponding time of the year before—due to improvement in
business throughout the district.
Bridges.—No new bridges were constructed during the year. One 50-foot trestle bridge,
No. 35, was renewed at Bella Coola. One 60-foot trestle bridge, No. 141, was replaced with
rock-fill at Vananda. One 60-foot trestle bridge, No. 181, was widened to 18 feet, using
longitudinal decking on traverse ties, at Powell River. General repairs were carried out on
several bridges throughout the district.
Surfacing.—This work was undertaken in Powell River and consisted of a new double
spray-coat for Joyce Road No. 159, 1.20 miles, and Woolgar Road No. 239, 0.27 mile. There
was 0.50 mile of the Thunder Bay Road and 0.30 mile of the Lund Road resprayed and 0.21
mile of First Road resurfaced.
Snow-removal.—There was no snow-removal, as there was not enough snow in any part
of the district to interfere with traffic.
Excessive rains between October and December caused several landslides in the Upper
Valley at Bella Coola, covering the road with debris to a depth of 6 feet. At McCall Hill,
150 feet of road slid out and a narrow road was constructed by excavating around the
side-hill.
Mackenzie Electoral District (South).
Highway Construction and Improvements.—New construction during the year totalled
1.64 miles of local and industrial roads; 9.55 miles of major reconstruction were carried out
between Gibsons Landing and Pender Harbour, where the highway was widened to the
standard width of 20 feet and well ditched and gravelled. The alignment was also greatly
improved.
New trail to the extent of 1.25 miles was also constructed.
Maintenance.—Advantage was taken of relief labour to widen and ditch several miles
of local road and also to carry out the gravelling programme.
Surfacing.—A spray-coat and non-skid surface was applied to 0.50 mile of Beach Avenue,
in the business section of Gibsons Landing.
Bridges.—Minor and major repairs were carried out on bridges throughout the district;
two framed trestles were converted to culvert and fills and one pile trestle reconstructed.
General.—All roads and trails in the district received their quota of attention during the
year and were kept in good condition for travel.
Owing to the ever-increasing travel between Sechelt and Gibsons Landing, a power-
grader was put into service there with very good results. In the near future serious consideration should be given to flush-coating this section.
Roads passing through the various business sections in the district—amounting to 3.1
miles—received a spray-coat of tarphalt as a dust-layer.
North Vancouver Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Improvements.—On Bowen Island construction of 1.03 miles
of farm road started last year was completed; also improvements to grade and alignment of
the Cowan Road and an extensive diversion on the Grafton Road to avoid a bad washout.
On the Dollarton Highway a much-needed diversion was undertaken at the Deeks Gravel
Plant whereby the visibility and safety of the travelling public were greatly improved.
Bridges.—Two new trestle bridges were constructed on Bowen Island and eight others
repaired.
On Marine Drive, West Vancouver, the replacing with steel-and-concrete structures of
Sandy Cove and Cypress Creek Bridges is well under way and, on completion, this will
eliminate all wooden bridges on the highway. P 14 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1939-40.
General.—All roads and trails were kept in good repair; 2.48 miles of roadway in various
sections were given a spray-coat and several bus turnouts were graded and hard-surfaced
along Marine Drive to facilitate the speeding-up of traffic and safety of passengers.
Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Improvements.—No new construction was undertaken in this
district during the year.
General.—Continual maintenance was necessary on Marine Drive and Imperial Street
to keep the rather poor surfaces in fair condition for the heavy travel on these roads, and
0.61 mile was given a flush-coat.
At Fourth Avenue a new substantially built warehouse was erected, replacing the dilapidated structure that had been an eyesore for many years.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 3   (DELTA, CHILLIWACK, NEW WESTMINSTER,
AND PARTS OF DEWDNEY AND YALE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, H. C. Anderson, New Westminster.
New Westminster Electoral District.
The installation of a water system in D.L. 172 by the Connaught Heights Waterworks
District necessitated the grading and clearing of several of the streets in this subdivision.
Home-ibuilding continues in this area on a large scale, making it necessary to improve the
streets generally in this subdivision as far as funds will permit.
The landscaping of the north approaches to the Pattullo Bridge started during the last
fiscal year was continued, resulting in the completion of the Cenotaph site and the section
between Columbia Street and the New Westminster approach and the section north of the
New Westminster approach. The landscaping consisted of the construction of large rockeries,
flower-beds, and lawns, completed with automatic sprinkler system in all sections, resulting
in a very beautiful approach in keeping with the structure itself. The work is well in
progress and it is hoped during the next fiscal year that the landscaping of the north
approach will be completed.
Tentative plans were also prepared for similar landscaping scheme at the south approach.
Delta Electoral District.
Construction.—In conjunction with the Federal Government, the Trans-Canada Highway
approach to the Pattullo Bridge, between Whalley's Corner and the White House, a distance
of 1 mile, was graded for a four-lane highway, continuing the work undertaken during the
previous year.    This work was satisfactorily carried out by contract.
The grading of the Peace Arch Highway, which was undertaken during the previous
fiscal year under Federal aid, was completed and the gravelling of the entire section from
the Trans-Canada Highway to the International Border was carried out, involving the
placing of 50,000 cubic yards of crushed gravel.
Three bridges were also constructed on this highway under the Federal Aid Project and
the description of these bridges is referred to under " Bridge Construction."
Surfacing.—Only minor surfacing-work was carried out during the year, consisting of
major renewal-work. Three-quarters of a mile of the Trans-Canada Highway, Arterial 2r,
was resurfaced and a section of the Ladner-Marsh Road, Arterial 80r, 1.12 miles in length,
was also resurfaced.
General maintenance with a special crew was carried out on all bituminous surfaces in
the district.
Snow-removal.—The district was very fortunate in having the lightest snowfall for
many years, it only being necessary to turn out the equipment one day during the year.
Bridges.—Three bridges were constructed on the Peace Arch Highway in conjunction
with the Federal Government; these being creosoted pile-trestle structures with concrete
abutments on pile foundations, using a creosoted wood-stringer floor system with reinforced
concrete deck and curb with a roadway width of 24 feet. Pedestrian walks were also
provided on one side of the structure.
The Nicomekl River Bridge consisted of eleven 17-foot bays on a 4-degree curve, super-
elevated for a speed of 40 miles per hour. DISTRICT REPORTS. P 15
The Serpentine River Bridge consisted of twelve 17-foot bays and the Bear Creek Bridge
of three 17-foot bays.
General repairs and maintenance were carried out on all other bridges in the district.
The bridges at Eburne and Marpole over the South Arm of the Fraser River were satisfactorily maintained and operated, but these bridges are rapidly reaching the stage where
they will have to be replaced with a more modern type of structure to take care of the ever-
increasing traffic at this point. At Marpole we have approximately twenty openings of the
draw-span per day, resulting in frequent congestion of traffic.
Pattullo Bridge.—This bridge operates as a toll structure and enjoyed quite a substantial
increase in traffic over the previous year. An interesting feature installed at the toll-gate
was the sidewalk indicator system for the benefit of the public, which indicates with lights
the amount of fare paid and the type of vehicle. Also automatic roadway switches were
installed in each traffic lane, with an electrical recorder in the office, which provides an independent check of all traffic passing over this structure.
Since the opening of the bridge more than 4,000,000 vehicles have passed over this
structure. Due to the improved road approaches constructed during the past two years,
traffic approaching the bridge is well distributed and the staff is able to handle same without
any delay, a peak of 3,000 cars having been passed through the toll-gate in one hour's time.
Alterations were made to the toll-office to provide more efficient accommodation for the staff
and the hot-water heating system was extended to the toll-booths.
Ferries.—Excepting for one or two trips which the ferry failed to make due to silting up
of the channel of the river, the Ladner-Woodward Ferry, operated under charter, provided a
satisfactory service throughout the year.
The Barnston Island Ferry operated by the Department provided satisfactory service.
However, due to increased demands on the small boat which we have at this point, it was found
necessary to make provision for a larger boat to cope with the work. Plans were drawn up
for a new vessel, and it is hoped during the next fiscal year that a new boat will be in operation and a better service provided for the residents of Barnston Island.
River-bank Protection.—In conjunction with the Federal Government and the Municipality of Delta, 3,522 tons of one-man rock were placed in the banks of the Fraser River in
the vicinity of Canoe Pass to protect the dykes at this point and, indirectly, the Government
highways.
Cloverdale Garage.—The garage continues to be a serviceable and economical asset to
both Engineering Districts 2 and 3. A large amount of work is also carried out for other
districts. During the year a new travelling service-truck was constructed, fully equipped
for roadside repairs. This unit carries a full stock of parts and has sleeping-quarters available for the mechanic. This unit has resulted in lowering the cost of our smaller repairs
generally.
Plans were prepared and some material purchased for a new shed to be constructed at
the Cloverdale yard during the next fiscal year.
Chilliwack Electoral District.
In conjunction with the Federal Government, a diversion 2.16 miles in length on the
Trans-Canada Highway was constructed between Jones Creek and Hunter Creek. The road
is constructed to a standard of 38 feet, complete with crushed gravel and permanent drainage
structures. The completion of this work, together with work carried out during the previous
year, completes the reconstruction of the Trans-Canada Highway between Jones Creek and
Hunter Creek, a distance of 5 miles, eliminating two railway crossings and reducing the
distance by 0.8 mile.
In conjunction with the Federal Government, the reconstruction of the Clayburn-Matsqui
section of the Abbotsford-Mission Highway was undertaken, a 1.65-mile section being constructed by contract. Two right angle turns and a dangerous railway crossing condition
were eliminated.
Surfacing.—A 1-mile portion of the Cultus Lake Road in unorganized territory was pave:!
with a mulch surface 16 feet in width, completing the surfaced roadway into this popular
summer resort. P 16 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1939-40.
In conjunction with the Municipality of Chilliwack, 1.85 miles of the Sardis Road,
Secondary Highway 62b, were capped with a mulch surface, the original surfacing of this
section being a spray-coat.
Classified Highways.—The Vedder Mountain Highway through Chilliwack and Sumas
Municipalities and the Vye Road through the latter municipality were declassified, owing to
these roads being no longer used by other than local traffic. Owing to the increased travel
on the Cultus Lake Road, the portion in organized territory, 0.88 mile in length, was classified
as a secondary highway.
Maintenance.—General maintenance on all highways throughout the district was carried
out with generally satisfactory results, having regard to the funds available for this purpose.
Snow-removal.—Because of the comparatively light snowfall, very little snow-removal
work was necessary; the Hope-Rosedale section of the Trans-Canada Highway being the only
portion requiring attention.
Bridges.—Reinforced concrete bridge of the continuous-beam type, started during the
previous fiscal year, was completed at Jones Creek. This bridge, 110 feet in length, with two
main piers and two abutments, with a reinforced concrete roadway 24 feet in width, concrete
curb and handrail, replaces two wooden bridges at this point. The construction of a concrete
diversion-wall confining the water to one channel permitted of this type of construction.
At Lorenzetti Creek, a creosoted pile-trestle structure with concrete abutments on pile
foundation with creosoted stringers, reinforced concrete deck, curb and handrail, having a
roadway width of 24 feet, was constructed. This bridge is similar to the type of bridge
constructed on the Peace Arch Highway, with the exception that a concrete handrail was
used, an extra stringer being placed on each side to provide for the additional dead weight.
This makes a very pleasing and efficient type of structure and is one which I think can be
built to advantage by the Department at various sites where the roadway is constructed on
a final location.
Numerous repairs were carried out on various other bridges throughout the district.
Ferries.—The Agassiz-Rosedale Ferry, operated under charter, continued to give satisfactory service. Due to a comparatively mild winter, operation was carried on without
interruption. During the summer months the seiwice was extended to 10 p.m. for the accommodation of the tourists.
River-bank Protection.—In conjunction with the Federal Government and the Dyking
District, 4,500 tons of one-man rock were placed along the Matsqui dyke adjacent to the
Abbotsford-Mission Road, which dyke serves to protect.
On the Vedder River the annual cleaning of the channel was carried out and the various
loT-jam barricades used for protection were further reinforced.
Dewdney Electoral District.
In conjunction with the Federal Government, a small section of the Hope—Rosedale Road,
0.37 mile in length, was reconstructed; this being a continuation of the work carried out in
Chilliwack under contract.
In the vicinity of Mile 92 on the same highway a further diversion of % mile was constructed by day-labour forces.
The balance of the Hope-Rosedale section of the Trans-Canada Highway in this district
was maintained as well as the funds available would permit. This section of the road
continues to be a source of annoyance to the travelling public and it is hoped that the reconstruction of this section of the road can be completed at an early date. Unfortunately, the
foundations of the existing road do not permit of a surface of any kind being applied.
Snoiv-removal.—A small amount of snow-removal work was carried out in this district,
the Trans-Canada Highway being kept open throughout the year without interruption.
Bridges.—A bridge similar in design to that at Jones Creek, described in Chilliwack
District, approximately 122 feet in length, was constructed at Hunter Creek on a new alignment and grade, replacing the obsolete bridge at this point. This work was carried out very
efficiently by day-labour forces.
Toward the end of the fiscal year, the existing structure over American Creek having
reached the end of its life, it was demolished to make way for the construction of a modern
concrete and steel bridge which will be 305 feet in length when completed.    A considerable DISTRICT REPORTS. P 17
amount of the foundation-work was completed.    The construction of this bridge has necessitated a detour % mile in length.
The construction of Texas Creek Bridge, in Yale District, was started in conjunction with
the American Creek Bridge, considerable saving being effected in carrying out the two
operations at once. This bridge will be a steel-beam span 45 feet in length on concrete
abutments, with reinforced concrete roadway 24 feet in width and reinforced concrete cuib
and handrail.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 4 (YALE, KAMLOOPS, SALMON ARM, REVELSTOKE,
NORTH AND SOUTH OKANAGAN, SIMILKAMEEN, AND GRAND FORKS-
GREENWOOD ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, W. Ramsay, Kamloops.
Kamloops Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and tributary
roads; extensive gravelling was carried out, using tax and relief workers. Advantage was
taken of a mild winter to carry on grading the highways on favourable days all during the
winter.
Surfacing.—Spray-coat was given the Kamloops-Tranquille Road for 5 miles and the
Kamloops-Cache Creek Road west of Savona for 14 miles. Recap was laid on washed out
sections of the Kamloops-Tranquille Road.
Reconstruction.—Completion of reconstruction projects was carried out on the Kamloops-
Cache Creek Road, thus bringing 5 more miles of road up to standard ready for paving.
Reconstruction was carried out at five points on the North Thompson Road, widening and
gravelling.
Bridges.—Many bridges were reinforced. Several stringer bridges were renewed. One
major structure was reconstructed on relocation.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was light and did not cause any serious inconvenience.
Yale Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Work on all roads in the district was carried out as usual, emphasis being
placed on the replacement of gravel surfaces as much as possible. Considerable patching,
both of mulch and double flush-coat surfaces, was done. Shovel and truck crew was used
from April to November, cleaning slides and widening curves on Cariboo Highway.
Bridges.—Twenty-seven bridges were repaired, chiefly in the Nicola Valley area. Three
large Howe-truss spans in the Cariboo Highway were redecked and rerailed.
Construction.—The following projects were started and completed this year:—
(1.) One-half mile relocation, Spences Bridge-Merritt Road at Rattlesnake Bluff, 3 miles
east of Spences Bridge.
(2.) One and one-half mile relocation, Spences Bridge-Merritt Road at Skuhun Creek, 14
miles east of Spences Bridge. This relocation eliminated two level crossings and caused the
construction of a new bridge over Skuhun Creek.
(3.) Aerial cable-ferry and approaches built over Fraser River between Boston Bar and
North Bend by contract and day-labour.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Approximately 16 miles of Cariboo Highway received a recap
treatment.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall in Yale District was again practically nil and ploughs were
used but very occasionally.
Equipment.—All machines were kept in repair during the year. New equipment-sheds
were erected at Boston Bar and space alloted for the proper storage of tools and unissued
stores.
Salmon Arm Electoral District.
Roads.—Construction-work was commenced on a 1-mile section immediately north of the
North Okanagan Boundary on the Trans-Canada Highway, this work being now 80 per cent,
completed.
Maintenance.—The widening of the narrow rock section on Kault Hill, 7 miles west of
Salmon Arm, which was commenced last year, was completed and a start was made to
2 P 18 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1939-40.
straighten and widen the section east of Kault Hill through the Indian Reserve. Considerable
improvement was done to a section, 1.1 miles in length, about 1 mile west of Salmon Arm.
Drainage was provided and the road-bed raised with sand and gravel from 18 to 36 inches.
On the Kamloops—Vernon Road improvements were made south of Monte Lake by cutting
down some steep, sharp humps and by widening and gravelling the road adjacent to the lake.
In addition the usual maintenance-work of ditching, gravelling, and minor improvements
was carried out on other roads in the district, using tax workers wherever possible.
Bridges.—Nine new bridges, replacing old ones, were constructed throughout the district
—four of these being on the Salmon River between Salmon Arm and Westwold. Several
small bridges on side roads were reinforced to carry heavy logging trucks.
The season's run-off was moderate and no damage was caused to any structure.
Bituminous Surfacing.—At Larch Hill, east of Salmon Arm, 0.58 mile of asphaltic mulch
was laid.    The 3.8-mile section of mulch at Pritchard was seal-coated with a non-skid surface.
Traffic Operation.—The snowfall was unusually light, the cost of snow-ploughing being
only about 5 per cent, of that of the previous winter. It may be of interest to record here
that road-grading was being done on the Kamloops-Vernon Road as late as the last week in
December and as early as the second week in February; these being the times at which in
other years snow-ploughing is usually heaviest.
Ferries.—The Sorrento-Scotch Creek Ferry (G. B. Wright) was practically rebuilt, being
under repair from October 3rd to December 14th.
The S.S. " Whitesmith," being unfit for further service, was disposed of.
Buildings.—A 16-foot extension to the existing equipment-shed was built for a paint-shop,
thus eliminating the necessity of painting our equipment in the repair-shop.
Revelstoke Electoral District.
Maintenance of Roads.—The regular maintenance was carried out to main, trunk, and
local roads with a large amount of relief labour, and work done in lieu of payment of taxes
being utilized to good advantage in this respect. All main roads were graded regularly,
considerable ditching was carried out, and a number of culverts renewed.
Extensive improvements were made along the Revelstoke West Road; considerable brushing was carried out, and near Taft, where the highway was subject to being flooded annually,
the road was elevated by a 3-foot gravel-fill. A narrow 1,000-foot section along Three Valley
Lake, consisting largely of solid rock, was widened to 22 feet.
Maintenance of Bridges.—Bridges were maintained as usual and a large number of
structures, particularly those on the Trans-Canada Highway, were redecked and new hand-
and guard-railings erected.
One new bridge was constructed and two were replaced by culverts and fills.
River-bank Protection.—Several new sections of pile and mattress cribbing were constructed along the Illecillewaet River to act as a further safeguard for bridges in that area.
Reconstruction.—One mile of reconstruction to standard grade was carried out on the
Trans-Canada Highway, west of Revelstoke.    This work was done by contract.
Bituminous Surfacing.—During the year, 0.30 mile of new double spray was laid and 3.81
miles resurfaced.
North Okanagan Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and tributary roads,
gravelling being done by tax and relief workers.
Surfacing.—On the Okanagan Highway, south of Vernon, 3.77 miles of bituminous-mulch
paving were laid down and 17 miles of seal-coat on the Okanagan Highway, Long Lake Road,
and the streets of Lumby.
Construction.—Three-quarters of a mile of narrow winding road on the Okanagan Highway was straightened and brought to standard, south of Vernon. One mile of road adjacent
to Armstrong, over swampy ground, was raised and drained and brought to standard for
paving. Two miles of the Vernon-Edgewood Road were ditched and gravelled and % mile of
the Trans-Canada, north of Mara, was widened to standard; 1 mile at Grindrod and 4 miles
of the Vernon-Edgewood Road at Lumby were gravelled and depressions brought up to grade.
Bridges.—Necessary repairs were carried out and one bridge renewed.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was light, much below the average. I If ff If J!

Roads.—Maintenance of roads was carried out throughout the district; many culverts
were renewed, also improvement of ditches on the main highways.
Bridges.—Only minor repairs were done on a number of small bridges, mainly of re-
decking.
Ferries.—The new ferry " Pendozi " went into commission on July 1st. This ferry has
been able to take the required traffic without any difficulties.
Surfacing.—Approximately 18 miles of double flush-coating were carried out in the
district. Twelve miles of this were new work; the remaining 6 miles were reflush-coated.
In addition, 1.6 miles of single spray were laid.
Miscellaneous.—Three and eight-tenth miles reconstructed to standard width on the west
side of Okanagan Lake; 1.5 miles reconstructed; 18-inch gravel-fill, Barlee Stretch, northeast of Kelowna, where 2-inch mulch surface had previously broken badly; 1.2 miles Okanagan Centre to standard width; 1 mile Rutland Road, raised and widened to standard width

8 miles.
Ditching:   Approximately 2 miles of side ditching was done on local roads.
An asphalt plant capable of storing 8,000 gallons has been installed at the Kelowna
Public Works yards.
Similkameen Electoral District.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was very light during the season of 1939-40, and as a
result the cost of snow-removal in the Similkameen District was about $600.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Total mileage treated was 7.164, as follows: 5.454 miles of new
mulch was laid between Penticton north to Trout Creek; 0.10 mile was laid on Bridge Street
in Princeton to a width of 36 feet—this was not completed; 0.51 mile was resurfaced in the
Oliver District; in addition to which 1.10 miles of double spray-coat was put down through
Osoyoos town and east.
Major Bridge-work.—Consisted of filling north span at Mclntyre Creek and constructing
a modern bridge of steel stringers on concrete abutments as planned by the Bridge Engineer.
Other bridge-work comprised repairs to existing bridges, made as follows:—
Bridge No. 178 was reinforced by placing bents under each truss beam.
Bridge No. 226 over Yellow Creek was given a new deck and cross-ties, new flooring and
railing.
Bridge No. 126 over Keremeos Creek was given new guards, rails, and floor.
Bridge No. 145 over Similkameen River at Keremeos: Piles in pier were packed with
4- by 8-inch timber, covered with $'6-inch plates bolted through the piles, with all bolts
tightened and tension rods adjusted.
Bridge No. 3 at Ashnola: Centre pier was repaired as instructed by Mr. Carruthers,
Bridge Engineer.
All other bridges were maintained as required.
Major Reconstruction and Maintenance.—Major reconstruction was carried out on the
Marron Valley Junction-Oliver section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, with 1.4
miles finished to standard. On the Princeton-Hedley section at Mile 18, 1 mile of road was
constructed on new realignment. Two rock points were taken off at Mile 3 on the Penticton-
Summerland section of the Okanagan Highway. All other roads in the district were properly
maintained and many minor improvements were made on the two main highways to increase
room and vision for the motorist. Considerable work was done on the mining-road between
Princeton and Copper Mountain; the Granby Company assisting with their own tractor and
men.
Grand Forks-Greenwood Electoral District.
No construction-work of any major importance was carried out. Reconstruction and

ENGINEERING   DISTRICT   No.   5   (CRANBROOK,   FERNIE,   COLUMBIA,   NELSON-
CRESTON, KASLO-SLOCAN, AND ROSSLAND-TRAIL ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, E. S. Jones, Cranbrook.
Cranbrook Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Reconstruction.—The reconstruction work on Project 16,
Kingsgate-Radium, between Kimberley and the Fernie Electoral Boundary at Springbrook,
that was completed last year, a distance of 13.25 miles, was mulched this year. Continuing
north, this mulching programme was carried on for another 18.03 miles through a section of
the Fernie Electoral District, on the east side of the Kootenay River, to Canal Flats, and then
extended another 5.64 miles into the Columbia District, 36.92 miles being laid in all, with the
result that we now have a distance of 125 miles of continuous pavement from the U.S.
Boundary at Kingsgate north towards Radium.
East of Cranbrook, on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, 2.1 miles were mulched,
and another 2 miles reconstructed which are now ready for surfacing.
No seal-coat work was undertaken this year.
Little important bridge-work was undertaken, with the exception of the reconstruction of
the Cherry Creek Bridge, north of Kimberley.
Snow conditions during the winter were exceptionally light; 247 miles of road were kept
clear, the ploughs travelling 2,713 snow-plough miles.
Owing to repeated changes of temperature, sanding operations were carried out practically continuously during the winter.
Fernie Electoral District.
Improvements and Reconstruction.—Four miles were mulched on the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway, east of Fernie, and 18.03 miles on Project 16, also mentioned under the
Cranbrook heading. Thirteen and one-half miles of the Great Northern Railway right-of-way
were taken over north of the U.S. Boundary at Newgate. Ties were removed and the ballasted
way graded and widened with heavy equipment.
Rapidly nearing completion at the time of writing is Project 3f, on the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway, 1 mile east of Michel. Michel Creek, a turbulent mountain stream, has
been placed in a new channel and the highway realigned and reconstructed to eliminate two
bridges and a narrow, dangerous section of road. The total excavation for the new channel
will be 90,000 cubic yards. Of this, approximately 18,000 cubic yards will be required for
the construction of the highway and the balance used to build up dyke embankments. It is
expected that this work, which is being undertaken by contract, will be complete before Michel
Creek is in flood.
Columbia Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Reconstruction.—On Project 16, Kingsgate-Radium, 5.64 miles
of mulch were laid, as mentioned under the Cranbrook District heading. Twenty miles of
highway were reconstructed between Dutch Creek and Athalmer Junction under contract and
is ready to receive the mulch aggregate this year. When this portion has been surfaced it
will complete the paving from the U.S. Boundary at Kingsgate through to the Kootenay Park
gate at Radium.
No important bridge-work was carried out during the year.
Snowfall was light and all main roads were kept open without delay to traffic.
Nelson-Creston Electoral District.
Reconstruction and Improvements.—During the past year considerable improvement was
made in the highway system in this district. Seven and three-tenths miles of new settlers'
roads were built, while 14.4 miles of the main trunk roads, 7 miles of local roads, and 10.05
miles of settlers' roads were reconstructed, or a total of 38.75 miles of roads were brought
up to the standard of construction necessary for the class of traffic using them. Seventeen
and eight-tenths miles of road were gravelled for the first time and 19.3 miles were
regravelled. Four miles were surfaced with asphalt mulch and 9.5 miles given a double
flush-coat. So that a total of 50.6 miles of road were given a higher standard of surfacing
than they had in the past. DISTRICT REPORTS. P 21
Bridges.—Bear Creek Bridge, on the Nelson-Castlegar section of the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway, was replaced by a new standard bridge on concrete footings and a
standard bridge built to replace the Creston-Porthill No. 2. Ten bridges were replaced by
culverts and fills.
Ferries.—All ferries were maintained and regular service given with but few delays
and no serious breakdowns. A new ferry was built for the Nick's Island Ferry and the
machinery installed by the garage crew. The north approach to the Nelson Ferry was
replaced by a fill.
Kaslo-Slocan Electoral District.
Reconstruction and Improvements.—Major work carried out during the year includes
the reconstruction of 2.2 miles of the Slocan Valley-Nakusp Highway and the elimination
of several bad and dangerous curves around rock bluffs south of Nakusp on the Nakusp-
Vernon Highway. The opening up of Bay Street, Nakusp, was also completed during the
month of March.    All these undertakings were completed by day-labour.
Mining Projects.—The following mining projects were undertaken and completed during
the year:—
Project No. 28: Reconstruction of a road to the Silver Ridge Mine in Sandon. Project
No. 15: Reconstruction of the Winslow Mine Road from Trout Lake to the Winslow Mine,
a distance of 6 miles.
Bridges.—The most important bridge undertaking was the reconstruction of the " A "
Avenue overhead railway crossing at Kaslo. This is a pile structure 422 feet in length with
a 4-foot sidewalk.
Several of the larger structures throughout the district have been redecked with longitudinal flooring.
Ferries.—Both the Needles-Fauquier and the Arrow Park ferries operated continuously
throughout the year.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was considerably lighter than in the past several years;
233 miles of road were kept open, the ploughs travelling 4,453 snow-plough miles.
Rossland-Trail Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Reconstruction.—Three major reconstruction projects were
undertaken and completed this year—namely, Project 8, Mile 1.86 to Mile 2.76, north from
the International Boundary on the Rossland-Paterson Road; Project 13, Mile 2 to Mile 2.81,
from the Trail City limits on the Trail-Pend d'Oreille Road. Both these projects were completed satisfactorily under contract.
Project 3, undertaken by day-labour and a R.D.-6 caterpillar tractor and angledozer,
consisted mainly of widening and increasing the visibility of the existing road from the
Rossland City limits to the boundary of the Rossland-Trail Electoral District.
On the Castlegar-Trail section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, 10.07 miles
of single flush-coat were laid.
Bridges.—There was no bridge-construction in this district during the year, but a 52-foot
4- by 5-foot double culvert and fill were installed at Little Sheep Creek, eliminating a 20-foot
timber structure.
Maintenance.—Maintenance-work was particularly heavy during January and February,
due to mud-slides and wash-outs on the Castlegar-Trail Road and the Schofield Highway.
Mild weather and the heavy rains necessitated an almost continuous patrol of all highways.
Snow-removal.—Owing to the unusually light snowfall, snow-removal was almost negligible, but considerable difficulty was experienced in keeping roads free of ice.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 6  (LILLOOET AND CARIBOO
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, O. P. Roberts, Williams Lake.
Lillooet Electoral District.
Relief-work.—No relief camps were operated in this district during the year under review.

Tax Work.—In the fiscal year 1939-40 farmers' taxes to the amount of $10,405.85 were
worked out on road-work. Having regard to the conditions appertaining to this class of work,
reasonably satisfactory results were obtained from this work.
Mining Transportation Project—Dominion-Provincial Agreement.—No work was carried
out in the Lillooet District in the fiscal year 1939-40 under this agreement.
Aid to Mines ("Mines Development Act").—Seventeen appropriations, varying from $50
to $400, amounting in all to $2,400, were made during the year under review. These sums
were spent by prospectors and owners (in one case this Department co-operated by providing
a machine and operator) in providing or improving access to mining properties.
Roads Generally.—Maintenance and minor improvements were carried out to the extent
permitted by the funds made available in the District Vote—Relief Work and Tax Work. In
general, the use of heavier and improved maintenance machinery is resulting in a gradual
improvement in road conditions throughout the year.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Bituminous surfacing carried out during the year comprised the
construction of 1 mile of asphaltic mulch on the Bridge River Road at Bralorne; V2 mile of
spray coat at Goldbridge, Bridge River Road; and 9.6 miles of 1937-1938 mulch from Ashcroft Manor westerly was flush-coated.
Bridges.—Expenditures on bridges during the year amounted to $5,995.92. This expenditure was divided as follows: Bridges reconstructed, $1,349.69; bridges maintained and repaired, $4,646.23. The largest single item of work was the repairs to the Mamquam (Washout) Bridge, which was damaged by flood on two occasions. These repairs amounted to
$2,531.42.
River-bank Protection.—No funds were authorized for river-bank protection in the Lillooet District in the year under review.
Ferries.—The five ferries operating in this district were maintained and operated successfully throughout the year. Repairs to the foundation of the tower of the Lytton Ferry were
made and the cable tightened.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall in all parts of this district was unusually light during the
past winter, with correspondingly small expenditures for snow-removal.
A portion of the northern part of the district required some attention with snow-ploughs.
One hundred and forty-nine miles were kept open at a cost of $5.95 per mile. Five
hundred and forty snow-plough miles were entailed at a cost of $1.65 per snow-plough mile.
North Cariboo Electoral District.
General Maintenance.—General maintenance on all main and trunk highways was carried
out continually throughout an unusually wet season, which necessitated considerable gravel
resurfacing. The Fraser River Road south of Narcosli Creek was reconstructed through
heavy timber for 3 miles, and other minor improvements were carried out.
Rural roads were maintained as funds permitted, assisted by tax and relief work.
Approximately 10 miles were reconstructed with the bulldozer.
Reconstruction.—Red Bluff Diversion, Cariboo Highway, at Quesnel: This project eliminated the existing heavy grade and curvature of the present road and is now 80 per cent,
complete.
Barkerville Road: Widening and general reconstruction was undertaken near the Ketch
Hydraulic and points between Wells and Barkerville.
Wells Townsite: In addition to general maintenance, some gravel surfacing on recently
constructed avenues and lanes was carried out.
Ferries.—All ferries were maintained and operated until the middle of January; cages
then being operated due to lack of ice bridges. Meanwhile, ferries were reconditioned before
being refloated in April.
Dominion-Provincial Mining Transportation Agreement.—Project No. 6, Barkerville-

Project No. 13, Wells-Sugar Creek Road: 7 miles winter trail widened with bulldozer;
day-labour (355 man-days).
Project No. 27, Downey Pass Road: 5 miles general repairs; new culverts and gravelling;
day-labour (111 man-days).
Bridges.—No major reconstruction or new construction. Several minor structures were
replaced and maintenance repairs were carried out on numberless structures.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Mulch cap amounting to 18,951 square yards was laid on the
Quesnel arterial, 1.16 miles. Also 2,400 square yards mulch on the approach to the P.G.E.
Depot, 0.22 mile.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall this year was the lightest experienced for many years.
The Quesnel-Barkerville Highway received the most attention, receiving 1,136 snow-plough
miles out of a total for the district of 2,234 snow-plough miles.
South Cariboo Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Two thousand miles of road were maintained with assistance from relief
funds and tax work. The latter amounted to $14,619.59 and, where possible, taxpayers were
taken into camps and employed in major gravelling renewal-work.
No work was carried out in this part of the Cariboo under the Dominion-Provincial
Agreement, but assistance granted under the " Mines Development Act " to the extent of
$3,024.65 was utilized in constructing 1.75 miles of new trail between Horsefly-Quesnel Lake
and the maintenance of existing trails to active mining operations.
Construction and Reconstruction.—Twelve miles of settlers' roads along Eagle Creek
were reconstructed and 7.75 miles of new road constructed to complete the portage between
Mahood and Canim Lakes. Work on 4.8 miles of diversion on the Raphael-Meason Road
was well advanced to facilitate communication between the south-westerly part of the district
and the main Cariboo Road. Three miles of the Williams Lake Cut-off towards Soda Creek
were widened and graded.
Surfacing.—In the Village of Williams Lake, 0.61 mile of old spray-coat was given a
mulch surface.
Bridges.—No major bridge-work was undertaken. All structures received adequate
maintenance.
Court-house and Grounds.—Court-house grounds were graded, seeded to grass, and neatly
fenced.    All other buildings received necessary maintenance repairs.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was the lightest in recorded history, resulting in a low expenditure in this regard. Lack of snow protection, however, caused serious frost-heaving in
the early spring, more particularly as road-beds were saturated by incessant fall rains and
frost penetrated to unusual depths. No difficulty was experienced in keeping all roads open
throughout the winter.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 7   (PRINCE RUPERT, ATLIN, AND SKEENA
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, J. C. Brady, Prince Rupert.
Skeena Electoral District.
Labour.—Adequate labour was available for all work undertaken. Relief labour was
used, throughout the district where available.
Highway Maintenance.—All roads throughout the district were maintained during the
year. Several old culverts were replaced. There are numerous corrugated iron-pipe culverts
of a small size in places. These are gradually being replaced with culverts of hewn timber
and larger capacity.
Throughout the year, 14,790 cubic yards of gravel were spread on the roads.
Settlers were again allowed to work out taxes on roads adjacent to their own farms.
The settlers were organized into gangs and much effective work was done. P 24 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1939-40.
Plank roads in Port Essington were repaired.
Highway Construction and Reconstruction.—Construction of the Usk-Cedarvale section
of Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was proceeded with. A contract was let to F.
Mannix & Company for the construction of an additional 3.43 miles. This project is 55 per
cent, complete, the end of the contract being Mile 6.73 east of Usk.
Driftwood Creek Road was developed from a trail for 1.5 miles, being 100 per cent,
complete for 10.5 miles.
Trails.—Widening and improvements were carried out on twenty-three mining-trails
during the year.
Bridges.—One bridge was reconstructed, Eight-mile Bridge No. 148, Kitwanga Valley.
Repairs were carried out to forty-three bridges in the district. The larger repairs were to
the following structures:—
Terrace Bridge No. 135: New stringers and deck to the northerly approach and four
bays on the southerly approach, a total distance of approximately 460 feet. Repairs were
also carried out to the timber substructure where necessary.
Skeena Suspension Bridge No. 97: Rebuilt the south tower and installed auxiliary cable
saddles.
Hazelton Bridge No. 51: This bridge was closed to traffic on account of being unsafe.
Repairs were made by placing four double bents to each 140-foot span, a total of sixteen in
all.    The bridge was reopened to traffic in 1940.
Haguelgate Suspension Bridge No. 50 was resurfaced with tarvia retread, a satisfactory
job being made.
Smithers Bridge No. 98 had some of the top chords renewed and repaired and all rods
and bolts checked over.
Twenty-mile Creek Bridge No. 114, on the Manson Creek Trail, was replaced into position and the main chords repaired.
Ferries.—Necessary repairs were carried out to the ferries during the year. Work was
continued on the south approach to the Usk Ferry. It was found that after high water
additional work was necessary to overcome deposits of sand in the cut. This sand made
landing the ferry an awkward and laborious business.
Surfacing.—Bituminous double spray was applied for the first time on the arterial and
secondary highways at Smithers and Terrace, as well as on adjoining roads; 1.89 miles were
laid at Smithers and 1.77 miles at Terrace. Owing to the lateness of the season when this
work was started as well as the abnormally wet season, the results have not proven satisfactory. Extensive patching and repair-work will be necessary as soon as warm weather is
experienced.
Buildings.—The interior of Smithers Government Buildings was decorated. Garages
and equipment-sheds at Smithers and Terrace were painted. The Smithers garage was
wired to carry heavier shop equipment.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal was light. A total fall of 68 inches at Smithers and 22
inches at Terrace did not constitute much of a problem. Snowfall at points outside of these
centres, however, was heavier. A total of 540 miles of road was ploughed, the equipment
ploughing 1,485 snow-plough miles.
Surveys.—Preliminary and location surveys between Usk and Cedarvale were made for
a distance of about 18 miles.
A traverse over the Omineca Boundary-Smithers Road No. 77 was run for 7 miles.
A relocation of Babine Road No. 11 for 1 mile.
Surveys to improve Laidlaw Road No. 156 for 2 miles.
Relocation of new bridge-site and highway improvement on the Smithers-Moricetown
Road No. 91 at Glacier Creek for 0.5 mile.
Prince Rupert Electoral District.
Prince Rupert and Vicinity.—New construction on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway consisted of slashing % mile and grubbing 900 feet.
At Mile 4, the road-bed has been widened to 20 feet with 30 feet on curves. Approximately 2,784 lineal feet have been widened and resurfaced with crushed rock.    At Mile 6 this Kootenay-Columbia Highway, Project No. 16, looking south from Mile 58.

road was widened for a distance of 1,824 lineal feet and resurfaced with crushed rock. Other
curves at Mile 8 and at Mile 9 were widened and superelevation raised.
Cow Bay Crossing Road was given an asphalt surface, but has had to be consistently
repaired ever since;   pot-holes appearing after every rain.
Court-house approaches have been resurfaced with approximately 360 cubic yards crushed
rock.
At Port Simpson, roads have been kept in condition, repairs being made when and where
necessary.
The Dodge Cove Trail has been maintained.
At Jap Inlet, considerable new planking and stringers have had to be replaced on the
sidewalk trail. Some of the old sidewalk has been taken up and replaced with rock and
clam-shell.
Smith Island Trail has had new planks and stringers in places and is in fair shape at
present.
Some new work was carried out at Oona River, consisting of ditching, grubbing, and
gravelling for a distance of 480 feet.    Sidewalks have been repaired where necessary.
Lewis Island Trail has been widened and improved with rock and gravel.
Bridges.—Galloway Rapids Bridge No. 68 was trussed and all lateral braces and chords
tightened.
McBride Street Foot-bridge No. 18 was repaired. It was not trussed, but corbel braces
were added. New lateral braces and rods were put in. The approach was renewed and one
stairway rebuilt, with repairs to main deck.
Osland Bridge was repaired, with new posts and part of decking renewed.
Salt Lakes Floats and diving platform with dressing-rooms are in good repair. Some
work will have to be done on the trail before the bathing season starts.
Cow Bay Floats are in good repair and have given no trouble this last year.
Wharves.—Prince Rupert Wharf has been adequately maintained; minor repairs and
improvements were carried out as necessary.
Court-house and Grounds.—The Court-house grounds have been improved by transplanting trees and shrubs.    The new greenhouse is in excellent condition.
In the Court-house building painting was continued, and this year the Public Works
office, Small Debts Court room, barristers' room, Sheriff's office, petit jury room, and the room
of the Inspector of Schools were completed.
Snow-removal.—No snowfall was experienced in Prince Rupert last winter.
Queen Charlotte Islands (North End).—On the Masset-Tow Hill Road, a full mile was
completed between Mile 11.8 and Mile 12.8, graded and planked for heavy truck traffic, which
otherwise is obliged to use the ocean beach when the tide is out. One more mile will complete this section and link up the Yakan Point section and thus avoid the beach entirely.
At Miles 2 and 2.5 the road grade was raised an average of 16 inches for 1,100 feet to
give better drainage to plank wheel-tracks. At Miles 1 and 1.4 planking was taken up and
replaced with gravel and clam-shell, thus making a good permanent road-bed.
On the Tow Hill East Coast Road repairs were done over the whole 8 miles.
On the Old Masset-New Masset Road plank wheel-tracks were kept in repair. At Miles
0.1 and 2.2, planks were taken up and replaced with gravel and shell, work being done by
local labour where road passes through the reserve.
Streets on Masset Townsite were maintained in repair, being gravelled and graded and
sidewalks renewed where necessary.
Queen Charlotte Islands (South End).—Work was continued between Port Clements and
Tlell in replacing plank wheel-tracks with solid earth foundation, reconstruction being undertaken from both ends. A fourth of a mile has been completed, while more than a mile is
ready for surfacing. Dry gulch has been filled to replace Geikie Bridge No. 2, which is
ready for removal.    Standard culvert has been installed.
Between Tlell and Skidegate, road has been widened at sharp corners. This road is
fully exposed to the south-east storms and considerable damage has occurred on several occasions by trees being blown down and ditches filled. Considerable erosion has taken place,
necessitating sundry diversions.
All other roads have been maintained. P 26 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1939-40.
Bridge No. 82 on Cohoe Creek Trail was rebuilt and all bridges protected with water
barrels and buckets during dry weather.
Atlin Electoral District.
Stikine Division.—Boulder Creek Road, Project No. 4: Work on this project was started
on July 5th and, except for a short close-down pending the arrival of new caterpillar tractor
with angledozer attachment, continued until the end of November. In spite of a very wet
unfavourable season, this new equipment proved of great value in this construction-work.
Further survey-work was proceeded with and favourable results obtained on the project.
Tahltan Bridge No. 69: This important Howe truss, on the Telegraph Creek-Dease Lake
Road, was completely renewed during the fiscal year. It was necessary to ship in timber
from outside;  work was completed in March during low water.
Telegraph Creek-Dease Lake Road: General maintenance and improvements were carried out on this road, and although we experienced a very wet season traffic was maintained
during the entire active season. Part of this road was in very bad condition owing to the
wet season. Repairs were carried out on several small bridges and culverts on the important
roads of this area.
North Atlin.—Spruce Creek Cut-off, Project No. 19: Work commenced on this project
August 29th and closed November 10th, when the work was completed. This part of the
road is now in very good condition.
Spruce Creek Extension, Project No. 29: About % mile of new road was cut out from
the end of the present Spruce Creek Road. Work commenced September 25th and closed at
the end of November, when funds were exhausted and end of construction season. Splendid
work was done by the tractor bulldozer on this project. The road is passable, but no surfacing
has been done.
Whitewater Mine Road (Taku area) : Assistance was given the Polaris-Taku Mining
Company, under the " Mines Development Act," in carrying out important work on this road.
Considerable gravelling was done, some grading and repairs made to small bridges and
culverts.
General: Local roads were patched and repaired, some new culverts put in and several
small bridges repaired.    The Stephendike Bridge was redecked and repaired generally.
South Atlin.—American Creek Trail (Pimple Section), Project No. 34: Work was under
way on the " Pimple " section of this trail, with funds provided under the " Mines Development
Act." The job was completed by an appropriation under the Dominion-Provincial Mining
Transportation Agreement. A good pack-horse trail was built from the base of the " Pimple "
to its summit, on new location. A survey was made from the end of the present tractor-road
to the base of the " Pimple."    This work was done under the " Mines Development Act."
Bear River-Meziadin Lake Trail, Project No. 12: General repairs and improvements
were carried out along the entire 25 miles of trails which extend from the junction of the
Bear River and American Creek to Meziadin Lake. A new location was obtained through the
Bear Pass, the glacier having receded sufficiently to allow of a new trail; the old trail passed
over the ice. New trail on new location was also made through the " Cottonwoods " beyond
the summit.    The entire trail is now in fair condition as a pack-horse trail.
Bitter Creek Trunk Trail, Project No. 8: This main trail into a mineral area was brushed
out and generally improved, new culverts put in, and is now in good shape for pack-horses.
The trail commences at Mile 9, Bear River Road.
Glacier Creek Trunk Trail, Project No. 9: This trail giving access to an important
mineral area was cleared out and general improvements made, and is now in very good shape
for pack-horses.
Upper Unuk River Trail, Project No. 25: Five and one-half miles of new trail were built,
commencing at the upper end (camp of the Selukwe Mining & Finance Company) and proceeding on new location toward the forks of the Unuk River. A good grade was obtained
which can readily be improved into a tractor-road. There are still about 2% miles of trail
to be constructed to connect with the main trail.
Upper Unuk-Sulphurettes Trail: Assistance was given on this trail under the " Mines
Development Act " and general improvements carried out.
Alice Arm Area: No extensive work was carried out in this area during the year,
although light speeder traffic was maintained on the Dolly Varden Railway.    Assistance on DISTRICT REPORTS. P 27
this work was granted under the " Mines Development Act," which fund also provided
assistance for several prospectors in the district, as well as building a new bridge on the
Upper Kitsault Trail and providing for work on the East Creek-Kinskuck Lake Trail.
A small amount of work was done on river-bank protection above the Alice Arm Suspension Bridge, where the Kitsault River threatened to cut in around the east end of the bridge.
Aiyansh-Nass River Valley: General improvements to local roads and trails were carried
out during the year. Several bridges were redecked and repaired using local timber. The
work is being divided among the settlers of the district.
General.—Stewart Area: Quite a number of prospectors in this area received assistance
under the " Mines Development Act."
The approach to the Bitter Creek Bridge on Bear River Road was rebuilt. Bear River
Road improvements consisted of brushing, patching, and several culverts put in.
Gravel, sand, and other material was put in place for the contract work on the Stewart-
Hyder Road hard-surfacing, but owing to very adverse weather conditions the contractors
were unable to proceed with the work. As far as possible materials have been stored for
future use.
Work on the Big Missouri Road and on the Salmon River (Premier) Road consisted of
ditching, patching, and repairs, and renewals of culverts.
A reconnaissance survey of the Big Missouri-Tide Lake Road was made and a report
submitted by the Locating Engineer.
The snowfall this year has been very light. Traffic on the Salmon River (Premier) Road
has been maintained all winter and several trips made by the plough as far as half-way on
the Big Missouri Road.
A new Court-house was built at Stewart, under contract, with offices for Government
Agent, Mining Recorder, Court-rooms, Police living-quarters, cells, and office, and District
Offices for the Department of Public Works.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8  (FORT GEORGE AND OMINECA
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, J. W. Miers, Prince George.
Fort George Electoral District.
Maintenance of Hightvays.—The usual maintenance was carried out on all travelled roads
in the district. Owing to a year of record precipitation, followed by a mild winter and an
early break-up, considerable damage has resulted, which of necessity must be repaired during
the fiscal year of 1940-41. During the previous year, farm and settlement roads were, to a
considerable extent, maintained by farmers working out their taxes.
Highway Reconstruction and Improvement.—Cariboo Road: Between Mileages 16.0 and
22.0, Prince George South, 4 miles were widened to 30-foot standard, of which 1.5 miles were
relocated on improved alignment. Owing to weather conditions, this work was not fully completed during the fiscal year.
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway: Between Willow River and Giscome 1 mile was
reconstructed to standard width; on the Hansard-Sinclair Mills section major improvements
were made on 6 miles, this work consisting of corduroying and filling across two peat bogs and
also surfacing several miles with sand, no gravel being accessible.
East from McBride, 5 miles of construction on new location was carried out near Tete
Jaune and toward Mount Robson.
West from Prince George, the reconstruction of the Chilako River Hill was completed
and 3.5 miles widened to standard on improved alignment.
Okanagan-North Thompson Highway: North from Valemount 2 miles were graded, and
toward Albreda 3 miles of right-of-way were cleared and grubbed on the Lamarque location.
Bridges and Culverts.—The Mud River Bridge on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was refloored. Twenty-one Mile and Twenty-two Mile trestles, on the Cariboo Road, were
replaced by concrete-pipe culverts and fills. Several other concrete-pipe culverts of 24-inch and
36-inch diameter were also constructed, replacing old timber culverts. A total of 438 lineal
feet of pile and frame trestles were reconstructed. The Beaver River Bridge, near McBride,
was replaced by two 70-foot King-truss spans and three bays of pile-trestle approach. These
trusses were constructed of cedar timber. P 28 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1939-40.
Ferries.—Service was maintained at Croydon, Isle Pierre, and Miworth.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was the lightest for several years and removal was carried
out entirely with pneumatic tired equipment, most of the work of keeping open 196 miles of
highway being done by two trucks.    The cost per mile kept open was $3.40.
Omineca Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—Approximately 750 miles of road were maintained in this
district during the year. To do this, it was necessary to use men who were working out their
taxes on the road. In all, $20,000 were worked out by farmers permitted to work out their
taxes.
Highway Reconstruction and Improvements.—On the North Trans-Provincial Highway,
immediately west of Vanderhoof, 1 mile of road was reconstructed to standard width and
gravelled. On the Burns Lake—Babine Road, 2 miles were reconstructed on new location.
Considerable improvement was made on the Burns Lake-Francois Lake Road by way of
eliminating blind curves and widening. Approximately 27,000 cubic yards of gravel were
placed on the main highway and settlement roads.
Mining Projects.—Manson Creek Road, Project No. 2 (contract) : From Mile 71 to
Manson Creek was reconstructed and a large portion of it was gravelled. This now permits
car and truck traffic from Fort St. James to Manson Creek, a distance of 120 miles, in five to
six hours. Some work was also done between Manson Creek and Germansen Landing, which
is about 20 miles west of Manson Creek,
Old Hogem-Aiken Lake, Project No. 3: The winter road which was commenced in 1938
has now been completed to Aiken Lake. This road is cleared 20 feet wide and graded 8 feet.
All small bridges have been put in. The distance from Old Hogem to Aiken Lake is 86 miles.
A number of larger bridges will still have to be constructed on this route before it could be
used for traffic.    It would, however, be possible for winter traffic to get through at present.
Germansen Landing-Aiken Lake Road, Project No. 17: This road is also for winter
traffic only. The distance from Germansen to where this road ties on to the Aiken Lake Road
is 23 miles. A bridge must be constructed over the Omineca River at Germansen Landing
before this road can be used for summer traffic.
Pinchi Lake Mercury Mine, Project No. 36: A winter road was constructed to the new
mercury mine at Pinchi Lake. This road takes off the Manson Creek Road, 16 miles north of
Fort St. James, the mine being 15 miles west of this point. The road constructed was of a
temporary nature only, and was intended to permit the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company to take their equipment into the mine during the winter months. It served this purpose
well. Some 300 tons of mining machinery were moved to the property from Vanderhoof by
trucks.    This property will be in production about July, 1940.
Bridges and Culverts.—Two old bridges were eliminated immediately north of Vanderhoof and replaced with double 5- by 6-foot cedar culverts. This has made a very nice improvement on the Fort St. James Road. On the Manson Creek Road, between Mile 71 and
Manson Creek, eight new bridges were constructed, three of which were 60-foot King spans
and two were 70-foot King spans. In all, there were 748 lineal feet of bridges constructed on
this road. Other bridges reconstructed in this district were the Nourse Creek Bridge—a 60-
foot King span, and the Bulkley River Bridge at Telkwa—a 53-foot King span. In addition
to the above, nine other smaller bridges were reconstructed and twenty-eight others repaired.
Ferries.—The ferry services at Francois Lake, Fort Fraser, Hulatt, Finmoore, and Takla
Landing were well maintained throughout the year.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall this year was very light and no difficulty was experienced in
keeping all important roads open. In all, 463 miles of road were kept open during the winter,
the average cost per mile being $11.70. Truck-ploughs were used to a large extent in this
work, and only when considerable snow had accumulated on the shoulders of the roads were
the tractor-ploughs put into operation. It was necessary to push such snow back on one or
two occasions. DISTRICT REPORTS. P 29
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8a (PEACE RIVER ELECTORAL DISTRICT).
Assistant Engineer, F. J. Clark, Pouce Coupe.
Peace River Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—Load restrictions were placed on all highways during the
spring freshet; with the result of keeping them in fair condition at this time of year and
helping out on maintenance costs. During the months of October, November, and December
exceptional heavy rains caused numerous washouts, which ran up costs above normal. The
total distance maintained on main highways was 245 miles by heavy graders and tractors, an
additional distance of 74 miles on side-roads for wheat-haul was maintained by light patrol
graders; numerous culverts on main highways and side-roads were repaired during the wet
season in October and November, as well as ditching for offtakes.
Highway Construction and Improvements.—Grande Prairie-Fort St. John-Peace Pass:
From the Alberta Boundary to Pouce Coupe the policy of brushing the sides of the right-of-
way has been followed; grade raised from Tupper to the Sudeten Settlement; numerous
culverts installed and ditches cleaned out.
From Pouce Coupe to Peace River Ferry at Taylor: Grade raised at various locations for
a total distance of 6.4 miles, with new culverts, and brushing, and cleaning ditches; also
improvement on roads approaching airport near Dawson Creek. Several right angle turns
were eliminated and easier curvature installed at several points.
Taylor to Fort St. John: Graded new approach on the north side of Peace River, cutting-
down the time of ferry crossing from 20 minutes to 7 minutes; raised grades for a distance
of 1.2 miles and installed new culverts. We also eased two right angle turns and put in
easier curvature.
From Fort St. John to Cache Creek: Finished raising grade at Charlie Lake School;
cleared 1.5 miles of right-of-way on new diversion near Deep Creek; installed new culverts
at various points.
Cache Creek to Halfway River: Widened gravel cuts on side-hill and graded 4.5 miles
with bulldozer;  also cleared right-of-way for same distance;   culverts have yet to be installed.
Halfway River to Hudson Hope: Graded and widened approaches to the new bridge at
Halfway; graded and widened from Halfway to a point near Ardill's Coulee for a distance of
5.2 miles; from Ardill's to Red River, graded 1.8 miles, but this remains to be finished from
Red River to Hudson Hope only. From Hudson Hope to Gold Bar, graded side-hill directly
west of Hudson Hope; crossed logged muskeg, which has to be finished this coming year;
from Hudson Hope to Gold Bar maintained only.
Dawson-Rolla-Clayhurst: Grade raised south of Doe River for a distance of 1.5 miles,
also brushed right-of-way; graded 2 miles on the north side of the Peace River, directly west
of the Moose River on side-hill; finished grading 1.8 miles south of Clayhurst and installed
new culverts on same.
Dawson-Moberly-Hudson Hope and branch road to' Little Prairie: This road was brushed
in various places and graded as far as taxes in this district would allow; road from East
Pine to Commotion Creek located for next year's work.
Fort St. John-Alberta Boundary: Widened out road up the Beatton River Hill. There
is a considerable amount of sandstone outcropping on this road which makes the completion
of this road very slow. The remainder of this road was raised in several places as far as
Cecil Lake.
Rose Prairie-Hine Creek Highway: This road has been surveyed and cleared for a
distance of 18 miles, 20 feet wide; this was for winter transportation only. We expect to
put this up to standard as funds permit.
Tupper-Hays-Gundy: Maintenance only; raised grade at the approaches to the Pouce
Coupe River Bridge;  widened right-of-way from Gundy store to Swan Lake.
Pouce Coupe-Dawson Creek: Renewing culverts; raised grades for a distance of 3.8
miles. This applies to the north road over Dawson Creek leading into the village as well
as the south road into the same village. Ditches have been deepened and considerable amount
of brushing done.
Roads Generally.—Many trails and side-roads were changed this fiscal year to a much
higher standard;   and although we have no standard constructed highways or roads in the P 30 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1939-40.
district, what we have are functioning successfully. Gravel is needed badly on the main
highway, so as to make an all-weather road. The population north of the Peace River have
to depend on the highway from Dawson Creek to Rose Prairie for everything and in rainy
weather all traffic is tied up.
Unemployment Relief.—This has helped out on our District Vote, as we get most of our
culvert timber and piling from this source; however, the labour is scattered and it is difficult
to get the utmost efficiency from this kind of labour.
Bridges.—There has been no new construction this fiscal year; works have been confined
to minor betterments, repairs, and strengthening. The high-level bridge over Dawson Creek
was dismantled and the timber from same has gone into various structures. Moose River
Bridge was washed out on two occasions and had to be replaced. Twenty-two small pile
trestles having a total length of 1,140 lineal feet were redecked. The bridges between Dawson
Creek and East Pine were all strengthened for hauling heavy oil-drilling equipment; this was
under the Mines Department, supervised by our Department. Protection-work was carried
out on the piers under the Howe truss over the Cut Bank River. All Howe trusses and King
trusses were taken up and checked over thoroughly.
Ferries.—Taylor Ferry was repainted and equipment checked over and repaired. Clayhurst Ferry overhauled and repainted as well. Cable at East Pine was tightened and repaired. Boat at Hudson Hope was recaulked and painted. The reaction ferry at East Pine
is being installed;   this is under the Mines Department, but under our supervision.
Snow-removal.—There was very little snowfall this year, consequently our expense was
below normal. The main highway from the end of steel at Dawson Creek to Fort St. John
was patrolled, as well as the road from Dawson Creek to East Pine; this was to expedite
the hauling of oil equipment.
Maintenance of Government Buildings.—All buildings have been maintained and are in
fair condition. We have added' six more bays to our machinery-shed; and also put in a
concrete floor in the machine-shop, which cuts down our fire-hazard. CLASSIFICATION OF HIGHWAYS.
