REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., September 30th, 1941.
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 1940-41:—
GENERAL OUTLINE OF WORK.
The highway programme as carried out during the previous few years was actively
pursued with a view to reconstruction, widening, surfacing, and generally improving the
main highways of the Province in order that they may constitute a safe, expeditious, and
picturesque means of communication. In this respect very satisfactory progress was made,
both with regard to new construction, reconstruction, and surfacing.
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 repair-work was done promptly and in a satisfactory
manner.
Considerable extra burden was placed on highways and bridges in various sections of the
Province in order to accommodate increased traffic and heavy loads consequent upon the
operations of the Department of National Defence, and this Department has at all times
offered every co-operation in connection with the activities and transportation of the armed
forces.
There has been a satisfactory increase in the number of automobiles visiting this Province, which can be largely attributed to the improvement of the main highways and the
greater ease of visiting points of scenic interest and hunting and fishing grounds. Increased
travel in the Province was occasioned by the opening of the Big Bend Highway and by
keeping the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway opened throughout the winter.
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. Agreements were entered into with the Dominion Government,
which may be briefly outlined, as follows:—
Tourist Roads.
By an agreement dated the 27th day of August, 1940, the Dominion and Provincial
Governments authorized a joint expenditure in the sum of $186,000 for work on tourist roads
in British Columbia. It was mutually agreed that one approved Tourist Highway Project
only would be undertaken in the fiscal year 1940-41, namely, the King George VI. Highway
(previously known as the Peace Arch Highway). Consequently the whole of the allocation
of $186,000 was set aside for this work—$93,000 payable by the Dominion Government and
$93,000 payable by the Provincial Government.
Mining-roads.
There was no written Dominion-Provincial agreement covering mining-roads in British
Columbia for the fiscal year 1940-41. However, it was agreed that one essential Mining
Project should be undertaken, namely, Pinchi Lake Road in Omineca Electoral District. Construction on this mining-road was therefore undertaken, the cost of which was to be shared
equally between the Provincial Government, the Dominion Government, and the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company, Limited (the mining company interested in this road).
The amount necessary for this work was $30,000, and the Dominion Government, the
Provincial Government, and the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company, Limited, each
put up $10,000. O 4
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1940-41.
HIGHWAY-CONSTRUCTION.
On Vancouver Island a new diversion of the Island Highway near Cobble Hill was completed and surfaced and a new bridge was constructed over the Koksilah River. This diversion
connects with the Cowichan Bay Cut-off and forms a new modern highway from Mill Bay to
Duncan, eliminating many sharp curves and steep grades. In the Fraser Valley area the
King George VI. Highway (formerly Peace Arch Highway) was surfaced throughout its
length from the International Boundary at Blaine to its intersection with the Trans-Canada
Highway south of New Westminster, and now provides a modern, safe highway for International travel. On the Trans-Canada Highway the four-lane traffic section south of New
Westminster was extended to its intersection with the King George VI. Highway and two new
bridges were completed at American and Texas Creeks. The portion between Spences Bridge
and Cache Creek was reconstructed preparatory to hard-surfacing during this year. The
Big Bend section of this highway was officially opened during the summer of 1940 and during
the summer months an average of 5,000 automobiles per month travelled this highway.
Hard-surfacing was completed on the Kingsgate-Radium Hot Springs section of the
Kootenay-Columbia Highway, thus providing a modern surfaced highway from the International Boundary to the Kootenay and Banff National Parks.
Reconstruction and surfacing was carried out on various sections of the Okanagan Highway and the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, and also additional 4 miles of construction-
work was undertaken on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between Usk and Cedarvale.
An aerial transporter ferry was constructed for the transportation of vehicular traffic
across the Fraser River between North Bend and Boston Bar. This ferry, besides being
unique in this part of the Continent, has proved very satisfactory.
SURFACING.
The principal surfacing undertaken during the year 1940-41 was on the King George VI.
Highway, the Kootenay-Columbia Highway between Dutch Creek and Invermere, on the
Trans-Canada Highway near Laidlaw, the Okanagan Highway between Kelowna and Vernon,
and the Cobble Hill Diversion on the Island Highway, Vancouver Island. New bituminous
surfacing carried out during the year comprised 37 miles of mulch and 19 miles of spray-coat
work. In addition to this, new work consisting of improvements to and renewal of existing
surfaces was carried out on 115 miles of road. Further details of the surfacing programme
are given in the Surfacing Engineer's report.

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. REPORT OF CHIEF ENGINEER.

FLOODS.
The fiscal year 1940-41 was remarkably free from floods and only one serious flood
occurred during November, 1940, in the Squamish, Pemberton, and Bridge River areas of the
Lillooet District, and damage to the extent of over $80,000 was done to public works alone.
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 or in the Lower Fraser Valley.
Throughout the Province, 5,220 miles of roads were kept open by snow-ploughing, involving
a total of 65,168 snow-plough miles at an average cost of $14.68 per mile kept open. During
the previous year 4,482 miles of road were ploughed and kept open at an average cost of
$10.80 per mile.
ROAD MILEAGE.
Elsewhere in this report will be found a statement of mileage and type of construction
of Provincial highways. The total of 21,304 miles shows an increase of 178 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     6,958
Local roads     5,271
Settlement, industrial, and mining roads     9,075
Total  21,304
In addition, there are 10,256 miles of trails on the registers, of which 5,958 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
1940-41, 1,991,577 vehicles producing a revenue of $260,294. Since the opening of this bridge
more than 5,900,000 vehicles have passed over the structure.
FERRIES.
A tabulation is attached showing the traffic carried by all the more important ferries.
The following comparison is of interest, showing trend in traffic:—

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, 1941, were as follows:— Miles.
Classified as arterial    323.41
Classified as primary     59.75
Classified as secondary  119.09
Total  502.25
Such changes in classified highways as were made were duly reported in The British
Columbia Gazette, as required by the Statutes.
GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS.
The report of the Chief Architect, attached hereto, outlines the activities of the Architectural Branch of the Department.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Revisions and additions were made to the standard specifications prepared by the Department as were considered necessary.
All accounting for unemployment relief continued to be done by the Accounting staff of
the Public Works Department.
Correspondence comprised 35,176 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. .    -nT-v-ON"
Chief Engineer.
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECT.
CAPITAL EXPENDITURE.
The Branch has carried out considerable work of a capital nature; the greater amount of
the work, however, has been for outside interests or other Departments of the Service.
We have completed during this period the two hospitals for the Sisters of St. Ann in
Victoria, and plans for the following other works: Addition to Prince Rupert Hospital for
Department of National Defence; new hospital for Atlin; new boat-station at Burnaby for
the Forestry Branch; new office building, Victoria, for Liquor Control Board; the new
auditorium at Tranquille was completed and occupied and which will be of great service to
this institution.    Many other minor works were planned and carried out.
SCHOOLS.
We have carried out several plans for various schools throughout the Province; Oliver
High School being the largest.    We have also supplied our stock plans.
REPAIRS.
Many of the small buildings throughout the Province have been placed in good condition
externally and internally, and I would like to concentrate on the exterior of our permanent
buildings by pointing the stonework, etc.; and if these are taken care of, no great expense
should be required externally to these buildings for many years.
Government offices are well equipped with furniture, except for the material increase in
filing-cabinets, usual replacements and repairs.
Work is now in progress compiling a complete inventory of all the furniture and typewriters, etc., throughout the Province and its valuation. -

THUNDERBIRD PARK.
The Branch, through our tradesmen and gardening staff, have erected this new addition
to the attractions of Victoria and many favourable comments have been made about it, and it
also preserves these relics and gives a greater opportunity for the public to study the old
Indian lore.
Our Branch has lost two valuable servants in the retirement of Mr. Young and Mr.
Manson, who have given many years of faithful work in the Public Service.
H. Whittaker,
Chief Architect.
REPORT OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEER.
In May of 1940 the war suddenly developed into a struggle of extreme intensity and has
continued so ever since. This has had a profound effect upon all our work. Prices have gone
up, materials required for war purposes are controlled and hard to get, importations are
restricted, deliveries are slow, and, finally, some of our best men are being drawn off into war
industries or into national defence.
The great demand for timber, minerals, and other products has resulted in an extended
search for sources of supply; this, and the establishment of airports, army, naval, and coast
defences on or at the ends of secondary roads, has subjected many of our structures to
loadings for which they were not designed. As a consequence our efforts have been directed
largely to an attempt to maintain bridges in a reasonably safe condition for the extraordinary
traffic—a traffic much in excess of that of any previous year.
Weather conditions have been good. Only one bad flood occurred in November, 1940, and
it was confined to the Squamish, Pemberton, and Bridge River areas of Lillooet District. The
severity of that flood will, however, be long remembered. Damage to the extent of over
$80,000 was done to public works alone. Only one major bridge was lost; namely, the South
Fork Bridge River.
Quite a fair programme of minor renewals was carried out and, in addition, the following
moderate sized structures were rebuilt: Ross Spur, Beaver Creek, and Goat Creek in Nelson-
Creston District; Kuskanax, Coffee Creek, and Marblehead in Kaslo-Slocan; Cambie Bridge
in Salmon Arm District; Raft River, Kamloops District; Hixon Creek, Cariboo; Quatse
River, Comox; Koksilah River, Cowichan-Newcastle; Cypress Creek, West Vancouver;
American Creek, Dewdney;   and Ashnola Creek, Similkameen.
A new ferry of the suspended, transporter type was installed over the Fraser River at
North Bend.    All reaction ferries were well maintained.
Considerable work was done in the regulation of rivers and bank-protection; particularly
on the Oyster and Cowichan Rivers on Vancouver Island, the Squamish and Lillooet Rivers in
Lillooet, and the Illecillewaet in Revelstoke District. Minor strengthening of banks on the
Fraser River in Dewdney and on a number of other rivers was carried out. The control of
rivers is becoming a more or less serious problem.
Both Headquarters and Field staff continued to render commendable service.
A. L. Carruthers,
Bridge Engineer.
REPORT OF THE MECHANICAL SUPERINTENDENT.
INSPECTION OF EQUIPMENT AND MACHINERY.
During the fiscal year 1940-41, every district in the Province was visited and detailed
reports covering the inspection of each unit operated by the Department are on file. In addition to the inspection-work, many local problems concerned with the maintenance and repair
of equipment and the supply and installation of garage equipment and tools have been discussed on the ground with the Field staff.
The repair-work undertaken in our garages is of a very good standard and this, in conjunction with the new equipment and tools which have been purchased and installed in our
workshops, has been a decided factor in keeping down the maintenance cost. 0 8
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1940-41.
Purchases of new equipment amounting to approximately $161,000 consisted mainly of
the replacement of units which had outlived their usefulness. Two rotary snow-ploughs for
use with four-wheel drive trucks and a considerable quantity of garage equipment and tools
were included in the above amount.
Owing to war conditions and unfavourable exchange, there has been a substantial
increase in the cost of new equipment of foreign manufacture and also repair parts. There
is little probability of this situation improving in the near future, and the question of anticipating as nearly as possible our requirements for tires, repair and replacement parts are
being given serious consideration.
Repair-shops were built and equipped at New Denver and Golden. Equipment-sheds were
erected at Smithers, Atlin, and Cascade Summit, Grand Forks District.
POWER-FERRIES.
A new launch was built for the Barnston Island Ferry and a new barge for the Arrow
Park Ferry. A new barge was also built for the Needles-Fauquier run and a power plant
similar to that in operation on the Castlegar and Harrop-Longbeach Ferries was installed.
A spare power plant is kept on hand and can be installed at short notice on any one of these
ferries in case of emergency.
The launch " Milwin," which was constructed in Victoria and launched in July, 1939, for
the transportation of departmental officials engaged in survey and inspection work in the
coastal districts of the Province, was transferred to the B.C. Police Department in November,
1940, on loan, for an indefinite period.
The Francois Lake Ferry launch was redecked during the winter tie-up.
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 reports filed:—

King George VI. Highway.  DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 9
REPORT OF THE LOCATING ENGINEER.
During the year twelve surveys, spread over nine electoral districts and totalling 84.6
miles, were completed and plans and estimates prepared. Of this total 53 miles were through
new country, either not served by roads or of major diversions where existing roads were
left for long distances. A total of sixty-five men were given seasonal employment, in most
instances recruited from the electoral district where the surveys were made. Some attempt
was made to give preference to engineering students during their vacations.
Reconnaissances totalling 56 miles were made and reports submitted, but on which no
other work was done.
The average cost of all surveys works out at $185 per mile, a reduction on the costs of
similar work done during the last two previous years. This was made possible by better
trained personnel.
All instruments in the Province were checked and, where necessary, repairs were
arranged. One transit and considerable smaller equipment, such as level-rods, chains, etc.,
was added to our equipment. tt  t   jjaYne

DISTRICT REPORTS.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 1  (VANCOUVER ISLAND AND THE ISLANDS).
District Engineer, W. W. Bell, Victoria.
Alberni-Nanaimo Electoral District.
General.—General maintenance-work was carried out by local crews in an efficient manner.
Weather conditions: Dry summer and very mild winter, exceptionally light snowfall, no
snow-ploughing. Flood-damage very slight, except in the Zeballos area where damage was
extensive, washing out a considerable portion of the main highway.
Operations.—Highway improvements included reconstruction and widening on the following roads: Canadian Highway at Cameron Lake, 1 mile, including filling bridge and constructing gallery in large rock bluff; Island Highway, Mile 85.5 to Mile 87. Considerable
reconstruction-work was done on the Zeballos Road, Nomash River Road, and Spud Valley
Road, and 9.2 miles of mining trails and roads were built.
Bituminous Surfacing.—On the Island Highway, 1.5 miles of mulch was laid at Wellington.
Bridges.—No major construction or renewals were carried out during the year; several
small bridges were replaced and maintenance carried out as far as funds would permit.
Unemployment Relief.—The number of relief-workers dropped from a maximum of 318
at the beginning of the year to a minimum of ten at the end; mainly contributing to this
reduction was the construction of the military camp at Nanaimo.
Cowichan-Newcastle Electoral District.
General.—General maintenance was carried out by local crews in an efficient manner.
Weather conditions: Dry summer and very mild winter; no snowfall, very little flood-
damage.
Operations.—The only major improvement carried out during the year was widening and
ditching 2 miles of the North Shore Road at Cowichan Lake, preparatory to bituminous
surfacing.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The Island Highway was resprayed from Mile 33.46 to Mile
37.75; considerable bituminous patching was done on the main highways and all roads have
been maintained and kept in good condition.
Bridges.—The wooden King-truss bridge on the Island Highway over the Koksilah River
was replaced with a reinforced concrete slab bridge on steel girders on new alignment, considerably improving conditions at this point.    Millet Bridge on Old Koksilah Road and St. 0 10 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1940-41.
Annes on Old Trunk Road were replaced with culverts and fills. Other bridges were maintained as far as funds would permit.
In order to protect the Island Highway from floods, the channel of the Cowichan River
below Duncan was cleared, realigned, and deepened, also a number of pile groynes placed;
this has considerably improved conditions at this point.
Unemployment Relief.—The number of relief-workers dropped from 137 at the beginning
of the year to twenty-three at the end.
Esquimalt Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—There was no programme of major highway
construction this year; but some limited improvement projects were carried out on secondary
roads, Rosebank Road and Fitzgerald Road being the larger of such works.
There has been no diminution in the volume of traffic on all roads, but general maintenance was satisfactorily carried out although available funds were very limited.
Surfacing.—Only maintenance-work on surfaced highways was undertaken.
Bridges.—General maintenance carried out with funds available. One renewal, that of
Wilkinson Bridge at Mill Bay, was carried out.
Weather.—Climatic conditions good through the winter; little snow and limited amount
of frost.
Comox Electoral District.
Relief-work.—Ordinary relief was employed to a limited extent.
Tax Work.—In the fiscal year 1940-41 farmers' taxes to the amount of $9,863.59 were
worked out on road-work.
Aid to Mines.—Under the " Mines Development Act," appropriations amounting in all to
$250 were spent on trails during the year.
Roads (Reconstruction).—Bunker Creek Diversion was completed.
Roads Generally. — Maintenance and minor improvements were performed on roads
throughout the district and their general condition throughout the year was satisfactory.
The Island Highway, Campbell River to Menzies Bay, was gravelled and ditched.
Dove Creek Road and Lake Trail Road were gravelled, also portion of Bevan Road.
Many old culverts were renewed and patching on all surfaced roads was kept up.
Bituminous Surfacing.—No new work was undertaken, portions of Island Highway were
improved.    All work was done by our own crews.
Bridges.—Two new bridges were constructed on the Hardy Bay Road, replacing Quatse
and Beaver Bridges. On this road also the Halliday Bridge and Last Bridge were replaced
by culverts and fills, but not fully completed. On the Campbell River Road a short diversion
was made to a logging grade, necessitating the reconstruction of a timber bridge to replace
McPherson Bridge.    General maintenance and repairs were carried out.
Ferries.—The Denman Island Ferry was operated throughout the year under contract
with Messrs. Bakie Bros., Denman Island.
Snow-removal.—No snow-ploughing was necessary this winter as only a couple of light
falls occurred.
River-bank Protection.—At Oyster River a rock and wire mattress was built, some 800
yards of rock being used.
Islands Electoral District.
North Saanich.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—There was no new construction undertaken
during the year. Several instances of improvement to access roads were dealt with and
considerable gravelling done.    Drainage was given close attention at various points.
Surfacing.—The new road connecting East and West Saanich Roads near Patricia Bay
was surfaced with asphaltic mulch, but no other major work was undertaken.
Traffic.—Due to the development at Patricia Bay, the highway traffic has continued to
increase in that area and the establishment of speed-limit and no-parking zones was found
to be necessary.
Weather.—An open winter gave no cause for unusual traffic conditions as there was an
absence of snow and only light frosts. DISTRICT REPORTS. O 11
The Islands.
General.—No major improvements were carried out during the year. All roads were
maintained in a satisfactory manner; labour being mostly done with taxpayers working out
their taxes, and relief labour.
Bridges.—One 60-foot frame trestle was replaced and one 50-foot replaced with culvert
and fill.    Minor repairs were carried out to other bridges where necessary.
Weather conditions were good throughout the year.
Saanich Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—The pavement on the East Saanich Road was
widened by building asphaltic shoulders along an additional mile of highway and reconstructing a sharp curve. Similarly, several portions of the West Saanich Road were given
additional width.
General maintenance was satisfactorily carried on, with particular attention to clearing
brush along the roadsides.
Surfacing.—Except the work referred to no other surfacing work was undertaken.
Weather.—Weather conditions during the year were good and the winter particularly
was favourable.
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.—No construction or surfacing work was undertaken during the year.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance of roads and bridges was carried out.
Dewdney Electoral District.
Construction.—No construction work was undertaken during the fiscal year.
Snow-removal.—A very mild winter was experienced and snow-removal activities were
practically nil.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance on roads and bridges was carried out throughout
the district.    Repair of bituminous surfaces was given special attention.
Mackenzie (North) Electoral District.
Construction.—Two short local roads, 0.15 mile in length, were the only new construction
undertaken during the fiscal year.
Maintenance.—There was less than the usual maintenance carried out on the roads,
owing to a considerable decrease of relief labour—65 per cent, less than the previous year.
A great deal of the maintenance was carried out by tax labour. Said maintenance covered
as much gravelling, ditching, and patching of hard-surfaced roads as was possible.
Bridges.—Three bridges were reconstructed: The Tastsquan River Bridge No. 59, a
46-foot King-truss span; Small Creek Bridge No. 40, a 32-foot frame trestle at Bella Coola;
and Gillies Bay Bridge No. 113, an 80-foot frame trestle on Texada Island. General repairs
were also carried out on several bridges throughout the district.
Surfacing.—No new surfacing was undertaken during the year. Considerable patching
was carried out on the present surfaced roads.
Miscellaneous.—Excessive rains in October caused the Bella Coola River to overflow and
take out a 60-foot section of the mattress at Hagensborg. Logs had to be hauled into the
gap to form a log-jam and obstructions cleared to allow the river to flow along the opposite
bank. All creeks overflowed along 20 miles of the highway, and did considerable damage to
several bridge approaches. Repairs were carried out and the highway was open to traffic
within four days.
In the Powell River district the speed-limit signs were changed from 20 to 30 miles an
hour and erected in new locations. 0 12 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1940-41.
Mackenzie (South) Electoral District.
Construction.—No new construction was undertaken during the fiscal year, but reconstruction of the Y.M.C.A. Road and a part of the Lower Road totalled 2.40 miles. The work
on the Lower Road, over a length of 1.5 miles, was chiefly widening and ditching, and for
75 per cent, of the way was outcropping solid rock.
Maintenance.—The drastic reduction in relief labour has materially reduced the maintenance-work usually carried out, but during the year 3.17 miles of new gravel were laid down
and 4.16 miles renewed, in addition to the normal necessary maintenance.
Surfacing.—No additional surfacing was undertaken this year.
Bridges.—Twelve bridges received minor or major repairs. One bridge was converted
to culvert and fill and five framed trestle-bent bridges totalling 408 lineal feet were reconstructed.
General.—All roads and trails in the district were kept in good condition for travel and
each received its quota of attention; 3.27 miles, comprising important sections of the main
highways, received a spray-coat of oil as a dust-layer.
North Vancouver Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Only work of a general maintenance nature was carried out on the classified and unclassified roads in this district. Trails extended and built on the various islands
amounted to 1.22 miles.
Bridges.—The steel and concrete structures on Marine Drive, West Vancouver, over
Cypress Creek and Sandy Cove were completed and have greatly added to the general appearance of the Drive at these points.
Capilano Bridge received a fresh coat of aluminium paint to keep the surface in first-
class condition.
On Bowen Island one framed-trestle structure was constructed and one reconstructed,
while nine other bridges received major or minor repairs.
General.—All roads and trails were kept in good condition.
Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral District.
Construction.—No new construction was undertaken during the year, but Imperial Street
for 2.15 miles received a renewal spray-coat.
General.—Continual maintenance was carried out on all roads to keep them in good shape
for the steady flow of traffic and also, as far as possible, the area within the boundaries of the
right-of-way kept as pleasing to the eye as conditions would permit.
The shoulders along Spanish Banks and the various lookouts were given a spray-coat of
oil as a dust-layer on an area of 8,000 square yards.
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.
In D.L. 172, due to the rapid growth of new homes, further clearing of some of the streets
had to be undertaken to cope with the building developments. The ordinary maintenance on
the existing streets was carried out.
The landscaping of the north approaches to the Pattullo Bridge was continued, the work
being completed with the exception of two small sections. The work carried out was a continuation of the previous year's work, consisting of the construction of rockeries, flower-beds,
and lawns, with automatic sprinkler systems throughout.
Delta Electoral District.
In conjunction with the Federal Government the grading of the King George VI. Highway was completed and the bituminous surface, machine-laid, was constructed throughout the
entire length of this highway; the pavement being 22 to 33 feet in width, approximately
200,000 square yards of pavement being laid. All of this work was carried out by contract.
This modern highway was officially opened in a beautiful setting at the Peace Arch Park on October 16th with an appropriate ceremony, participated in by Provincial and Federal
authorities, together with representatives from the State of Washington.
In addition to the work carried out in conjunction with the Federal Government, considerable clearing and grading of the boulevards on this highway was carried out by day-labour
with a view to beautifying the roadside at a later date.
The section of the Trans-Canada Highway from Whalley's Corner to the White House
Corner, which was constructed and gravelled the previous year as a four-lane highway, was
hard-surfaced with a machine-laid mulch by contract.
With the completion of these highways there is now a continuous hard-surfaced highway
of adequate width and modern design from the U.S. Boundary to the Pattullo Bridge, a
distance of approximately 18 miles.
In the landscaping of the park area in the vicinity of the Peace Portal this Department
co-operated with the representatives of the Department of Lands in laying out our highway
to conform with their park improvement.
General maintenance was carried out on all highways throughout the district with satisfactory results.
In addition to sharing the usual expense of maintenance of secondary highways in the
district, the Department also assisted the municipalities by grants to various heavily travelled
local roads. Assistance was given on the River and Hjorth Roads in Surrey Municipality; on
the Glover Road in Langley Municipality;  and the River Road in Delta Municipality.
Bridges.—There was no new construction of bridges in the district during the fiscal year,
all work being confined to minor repairs.
Snow-removal.—Due to a very mild winter, there was no occasion for the use of snow-
removal equipment during the year, although same was assembled and available for use in
case of emergency.
Signs.—A system of numbering the trunk highways in the Province was inaugurated and
in conformity with same all the trunk highways in the district were marked; these signs have
been found to be of considerable value to tourists.
Cloverdale Garage.—A large warehouse, 40 by 200 feet, was constructed during the year
for the housing of road equipment which had previously stood out in the weather when not in
use, and this new shed is proving a valuable asset to the district. The garage itself continues
to be of service to all districts in the Lower Mainland and adjacent interior districts.
Ferries.—Ladner-Woodward Ferry: The Woodward Landing and approach was renewed
on approved alignment and has resulted in better service at this point.
Barnston Island Ferry: To accommodate the increasing traffic a larger ferry-boat was
constructed and during the next fiscal year it is the intention to build a new scow of larger
dimensions.
River-bank Protection.—The Department contributed toward the cost of further protection-work on the Fraser River at Canoe Pass in conjunction with the Municipality of Delta.
Chilliwack Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance on all highways throughout the district was carried
out with generally satisfactory results. A new mower was purchased and a start was made
on trimming the shoulders of the road with a view to eventually establishing sod shoulders, at
the same time helping to kill the weed-growth on the roadside.
Construction.—The only new construction undertaken was on " C " Street Extension, to
afford direct access from the Yale Road 61r (locally known as " Vye Road ") to the Trans-
Canada Highway 5r, a distance of 1.3 miles. With the aid of the Sumas Dyking Commission's
drag-line, large drainage-ditches were constructed and the material used to form the road-bed.
The right-of-way was fenced and the necessary culverts constructed by day-labour. Until
funds are available for the completion of this important highway connection which will take
care of traffic to and from the Customs port at Huntingdon, the existing Abbotsford-Hunting-
don Road, with its right-angle turns, is being maintained in good condition.
Surfacing.—The hard-surfacing (spray-coat) of the portion of the Abbotsford-Mission
Road 12r from Clayburn to Matsqui, 1.86 miles, has provided a more direct route between
Abbotsford and Mission Bridge. Before classifying this section as arterial, the route formerly
used was regravelled and put in good serviceable condition, prior to turning it over to
Matsqui Municipality for subsequent upkeep. O 14 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1940-41.
The reconstructed portions of the Trans-Canada Highway 5-13 in the vicinity of Laidlaw,
gravelled the previous year, had a spray-coat surface for 4 miles.
Bridges.—General maintenance was carried out on all bridges throughout the district.
One old trestle bridge on Sumas Mountain (Goodchild) was replaced by cedar culvert and fill.
Ferries.—The Agassiz-Rosedale Ferry continued to be operated under charter in a very
satisfactory manner.
Snow-removal.—Following the usual practice, snow-fences were erected at the various
points in the district in preparation for storm trouble, but owing to a very mild winter these
were not called into use, nor was it necessary to turn out our snow-plough equipment.
River-bank Protection.—Vedder River: The clearing of the channel and bars of driftwood and the material used for reinforcing weak spots in the bank was carried out as an
annual project. __ __ _.
Dewdney Electoral District.
Construction.—A large rock-slide occurred in the vicinity of Silver Creek in October, 1940,
and as the remaining section of the bluff appeared unstable, it was decided to proceed with
construction and revision at this point on an alignment previously laid down. To take care
of the traffic temporarily, a one-way road was constructed through the rock-slide on the
existing road. Clearing and grubbing of the right-of-way for the revision was carried out
preparatory to the actual construction being undertaken during the next fiscal year.
Bridges.—The completion of the construction of the concrete and steel structure at
American Creek was the chief work undertaken during the year. The completion of this
structure was delayed considerably owing to difficulty in obtaining the necessary steel members. The bridge was officially opened by the Honourable Minister of Public Works on
January 30th, 1941. Many favourable comments have been made on this structure and its
design is a great credit to our Bridge Department. The construction of the piers and concrete
deck and hand-railing was carried out by day-labour with very satisfactory results, the steelwork being supplied and erected under contract.
Preliminary work was started on the foundation-work for concrete piers of a new concrete
and steel structure to be erected over Silver Creek during the next fiscal year.
Snow-removal.—The light snowfall called for comparatively little snow-ploughing, the
ploughs being turned out only on two occasions.
General.—Due to the increase in employment generally in the Fraser Valley, there was
less need for the use of unemployment relief labour. Our day-labour forces continue to give
satisfactory results.
The hard-surfacing of more of our highways has eliminated the heavy expense of keeping
gravel roads in serviceable condition by our power-graders. More attention has been paid to
the prompt repair of our hard-surfaced highways, a service truck being on patrol at all times.
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.—In the maintenance-work particular attention was paid to frequent
grading on the gravelled sections of the main highways and roads to keep down the washboard. Every effort was made to employ the tax workers to the best advantage, by working
them as much as possible from camps, on improvements on main and local roads. Particular
attention was paid to roads leading to fishing resorts, as this district is fast becoming well
known as a good fishing area and the expenditure made by visitors is a boon to many local
settlers.
Surfacing.—The sections of mulch paving were kept in good repair.
Bridges.—A 100-foot Howe truss with creosoted laminated chords was built at Raft River.
Minor bridges were renewed where required and many were reinforced to carry increasing
heavy logging traffic.
Reconstruction.—Reconstruction-work was carried out on the Trans-Canada Highway
preparatory to paving.
Ferries.—The ferries on the North Thompson River were kept in satisfactory operation. Aerial Ferry over Fraser River, between Boston Bar and North Bend.
Island Highway, north of Cobble Hill.  DISTRICT REPORTS. O 15
Yale Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Less attention was paid to gravelling this year and more to reconstruction
on main roads. On the Cariboo Highway a shovel-crew worked from April to November
widening the present road from Jackass Mountain to 3 miles east of Lytton. Another shovel-
crew was employed for the same time on revision on the Kamloops Road and the Merritt-
Princeton Road. Gravelled main roads were kept graded to a smooth surface throughout the
heavy traffic season.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Considerable patching of double flush-coat surfaces was carried
out and also 2% miles of new flush-coat was laid on reconstructed portions of the Cariboo
Highway.
Bridges.—Approaches to Middlesboro Bridge at Merritt were safeguarded by cutting a
new channel for the Coldwater River. Many bridges were redecked, rerailed, and widened,
especially on the Cariboo Highway. A new steel-girder bridge with concrete deck was built
over Texas Creek on the same highway. A new creosoted wood continuous-span bridge, 80
feet long, replaced trestle at Jackass Bridge No. 108, also Dray Creek Bridge, 80-foot trestle,
was replaced by a 48-inch culvert and fill.
Reconstruction.—On the Cariboo Highway old wooden cribs were removed on Jackass
Mountain at Mile 159 and replaced with gravity concrete wall. At Mile 180 between Lytton
and Spences Bridge a concrete gravity wall was built to hold an unstable rock wall. At Texas
Creek a %-mile diversion was built to suit the new concrete and steel bridge. At Jackass
Mountain and Mile 180, 2,126 cubic yards of concrete were poured and 2,465 cubic yards of
rock excavated.
Ferries.—The North Bend Aerial Ferry operated throughout the year without any
appreciable delays. During its operation it carried 3,482 cars, 472 trucks, and 24,941 passengers to the end of the fiscal year.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall in this district was practically nil and ploughs were used only
occasionally.
Surveys.—Plans and estimate were made for the replacement of old cribs with concrete
walls on the Cariboo Highway at Miles 117, 125, 159, and 180, also for replacement of 9-Mile
Bridge with fill and concrete culvert. Plans were also made for revision of Spences Bridge-
Merritt Road from Mile 4.5 to Mile 6.5 and on the Merritt-Princeton Road from Mile 44 to
Mile 47. In addition, levels were run off the geodetic datum bench-marks and concrete benchmarks permanently placed approximately every 5 miles on the Cariboo Highway, Spences
Bridge-Merritt Road, and Merritt-Kamloops Road. In addition, B.C. Land Surveyor plans
were made of the roads and railway crossings adjacent to the North Bend ferry on both sides
of the river.
Salmon Arm Electoral District.
Roads.—Construction: Reconstruction to standard was carried out on two short sections
of the Trans-Canada Highway, one section between Miles 350.8 and 351.9, just north of the
North Okanagan boundary; the other between Miles 341 and 341.4 about 4 miles west of
Salmon Arm.    The former section was commenced last year and completed this summer.
A settlement road about 0.2 mile long was built from the Canoe-Sicamous Road at Sica-
mous to serve the residents of that village living west of the lake at that point.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance was carried out on all roads, the work on side
roads being done to a considerable extent by farmers working out their taxes. Owing to the
light snowfall the run-off was light and damage to the roads in the spring-time was not
excessive. Spring grading of the Kamloops-Salmon Arm Road was commenced in January,
some six or seven weeks earlier than usual.
Bridges.—Five bridges were reconstructed during the year, the largest being the 100-foot
Howe truss over the Eagle River at Cambie.
One bridge at Anglemont was replaced by a fill and culvert and many of the smaller
bridges throughout the district were reinforced to carry heavy logging-trucks.
Ferries.—Sorrento-Scotch Creek Ferry operated without any interruption throughout
the year.    A new scow was built for Ducks Ferry at Monte Creek.
Snow-removal.—For the second consecutive year the winter was exceptionally mild and
the snowfall comparatively light, so that snow-removal was a minor problem. O 16 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1940-41.
Buildings.—Further additions were made to the storage-sheds in Salmon Arm yard, there
being now sufficient shed-room to accommodate all our equipment, including power-shovels,
power-graders, and cabooses.
Three lots were procured in the town of Chase for a yard and a galvanized-iron building,
about 24 by 46 feet, was erected there. A gasoline-pump, with 500-gallon storage-tank, was
installed in this building.
Revelstoke Electoral District.
Maintenance of Roads.—The regular maintenance was carried out to main, trunk, and
local roads, with relief labour and work done in lieu of payment of taxes being utilized to good
advantage in this respect. All the main roads were graded regularly and considerable
ditching was carried out.
Extensive improvements were made along the Revelstoke West Road and large fills were
completed near Solsqua and Cambie, where the highway was subject to being flooded annually.
Further widening was carried out along Three Valley Lake.
All main roads in the district, with the exception of the Big Bend Highway, were ploughed
and kept open to traffic.
Maintenance of Bridges.—Bridges were maintained as usual, and three bridges were
replaced by culverts and gravel-fills.
General.—On June 29th the Big Bend Highway was officially opened and 42.1 miles were
turned over by the Federal Government to the Province for maintenance. Some 84.7 miles of
the Revelstoke section were oiled—52.4 miles by the Provincial Government and 32.3 miles by
the Dominion.
North Okanagan Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and tributary roads.
Side drainage-ditches were improved and a considerable number of culverts renewed. Gravelling was done by relief and tax workers.
Surfacing.—On the Vernon-Edgewood Road, 6.67 miles of double spray-coat was done.
Construction.—One-quarter mile of narrow road on the Okanagan Highway was widened
to standard south of Vernon. One mile on the Trans-Canada at Grindrod was straightened
and widened to standard and gravelled. Three miles on the Okanagan Highway south of
Enderby, 1 mile on the Vernon-Kamloops Road, 2 miles on the Okanagan Landing Road and
several tributary roads were regravelled.
Bridges.—Necessary repairs were carried out. Several small bridges were redecked and
three renewed.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was very light, but ice conditions were worse than usual.
South Okanagan Electoral District.
Roads.—The following reconstruction was carried out during the year: —
Okanagan Highway: 1.1 mile reconstructed north from Reid's Corner; 1 mile reconstructed south of Summerland.
Okanagan Centre Road:   1 mile reconstructed north from Berry's Corner.
Bituminous surfacing was carried out as follows: 3.04 miles of new mulch; 0.93 mile of
mulch renewed; 2.77 miles of new double spray-coat; and 1.24 miles of double spray-coat
renewed.
Maintenance was carried out on all roads and many minor improvements made.
Snowfall was below average and all main roads were open throughout the winter.
Bridges.—Two small bridges were reconstructed and one constructed. A number of
others were redecked and minor repairs made.
Ferries.—The ferry " M.S. Pendozi " operated throughout the year without any delay to
traffic.    The volume of traffic was approximately the same as in the previous fiscal year.
Miscellaneous.—The asphalt storage plant at Kelowna was increased by the addition of a
3,000-gallon tank.
SlMILKAMEEN ELECTORAL DISTRICT.
Maintenance.—In addition to general maintenance of the roads in this district, considerable improvements were made on several of the most travelled sections by cutting out several
dangerous curves and increasing the width of road as and when it was convenient to do so. DISTRICT REPORTS. O 17
Major Reconstruction.—Major reconstruction on the Marron Valley Junction-Oliver section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway began last year and was continued this year
at Waterman Hill between Mile 0 and Mile 2, north of Okanagan Falls.
On account of many new settlers on Southern Okanagan Project lands, many of the
plotted roads both in Oliver and Osoyoos had to be constructed and put in shape for traffic,
thus increasing maintenance-work. In addition to this, 3,100 lineal feet of sidewalk was
constructed—2,630 feet from Oliver south and 470 feet in the town of Oliver. This work
was done with relief labour in conjunction with our regular staff.
Considerable improvements were made on the Copper Mountain Road, using our forces
in co-operation with the Granby Company, who put their own Diesel tractor and bulldozer on
the road when it could be spared from mine-work, and as a result the Copper Mountain Road
has improved 50 per cent, in the last two years. The travel on this road is very heavy and
continues to increase as the mine steps up production.
Grades were established on Bridge Street, west of Vermillion Avenue, Princeton, it being
necessary to raise the street level to avoid frost-boils.
A survey was made from Mile 107 to Mile 108.6, Princeton-Hedley section of the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway 4 miles west of Hedley. This was necessary so as to establish
and standardize an existing right-of-way through the registered townsite of Similkameen City.
Bituminous Work.—Bridge Street, Princeton, was given a bituminous mulch-coat 50 feet
in width. In addition, Vermillion Avenue, Princeton; Scott Avenue, Hedley; and the main
street in Keremeos were given a coat of dust-layer. All existing bituminous surface was
kept in good condition by patching.
Okanagan Highway from Mile 111.7 to Mile 113.4 was cross-sectioned for reconstruction
during 1941 in preparation for bituminous mulch-coat later.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal throughout the district was light, there being no stoppage
of traffic anywhere due to snow.
Bridges.—All bridges in this district were kept in good repair. Major bridge-work consisted of reconstructing Ashnola Bridge No. 3, which is now a 66-foot King-truss span with
concrete abutments. All bridges of less than 20-foot span are being replaced by culvert and
fill when they need renewal.
Grand Forks-Greenwood Electoral District.
Two miles of double flush-coat surfacing were completed on the Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway No. 3, east and west of Greenwood.
Considerable ditching and gravelling was carried out over the entire length of the
highway in this district; satisfactory results being obtained from the use of screened waste
from old mine dumps in several parts of the district. The highway was widened and generally improved over its entire length but no major work cai-ried out during the year. Several
small bridges and quite a number of culverts were renewed and repaired. A preliminary
survey was made of the proposed Hammer Hill revision.
Considerable black-top patching was carried out in the Rock Creek, Greenwood, and
Grand Forks areas, but, owing to the fact that these were only spray-coat jobs, the surfaces
were badly broken up during the spring thaws; the gravelled roads gave no trouble whatsoever, due to side ditching undertaken during the late fall.
Aside from the work carried out on Highway No. 3, other local roads were graded,
ditched, gravelled, and generally improved as far as funds available would permit. Several
bridges were redecked and reinforced and quite a number of new culverts put in. The Grand
Forks powder-magazine was rebuilt and a new alarm system installed.
During the past winter, traffic was maintained over the entire Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway in this district and a number of main side roads kept open all winter. 0 18 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1940-41.
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.
The main project in this district during the year was the seal-coating of the northern
highway from Kimberley to Springbrook, a distance of 24.60 miles. This was the first
project of its kind where the mechanical spreaders were put into use, which greatly added
to the efficiency of the work. Unfortunately, bad weather conditions in the fall did not permit the contractor to complete the seal-coating from Cranbrook west.
In an endeavour to control the dust nuisance on our main highways, we oiled 17.25 miles
during the season. This work proved satisfactory as far as the dust was concerned, but the
application had a tendency to augment the wash-board conditions.
Three small bridges were reconstructed during the year at a cost of $3,164.51, and
several smaller structures repaired at a cost of $1,829.34.
Snow-removal costs were low for the winter season—a total of 6,049 snow-plough miles at
a cost of $11.32 per mile.
Fernie Electoral District.
The completion of the seal-coat on Project No. 16 between Springbrook and Canal Flats
i—a distance of 18.4 miles—was the major project in this district for the year. A total of 6.5
miles of new gravelling was carried out on local roads.
Extensive repairs were carried out on Fairy Creek Bridge and Meadow Creek Bridge at
a total cost of $2,640 and also $1,400 was expended on the Newgate Bridge in order to keep
the lumber-trucks moving over this structure.
The elimination of the two bridges at Michel, which was 80 per cent, completed last
year, was completed during the early part of the season and the whole project turned out
very satisfactory. Not only do we eliminate two bridges, but the alignment of the new road
is vastly improved.
Snow conditions were also very light in this district. During the year a total of 5,579
snow-plough miles were maintained at an average cost of $13.32 per mile.
Columbia Electoral District.
The completion of Project No. 16 through this district was a large programme this year.
The 19.86-mile gap was hard-surfaced and sealed during the year. This work was carried
out by contract and came through the winter in excellent condition. Seal-coating was also
completed between Dutch Creek and Canal Flats, a distance of 12.8 miles.
Additional work was also undertaken by the Dominion forces on the Golden-Leanchoil
Highway with excellent results. This work was undertaken between Miles 5 to 15, with
a total of 2.5 miles being improved. A short diversion at Mile 25.5 on the Kootenay-Columbia
Highway was undertaken, which eliminated a bad piece of alignment.
On the Big Bend Highway, besides general maintenance, an endeavour was made to
eliminate the dust nuisance, with the result that we oiled 52 miles of highway between Field
and the Columbia River Crossing on the Big Bend Highway.
Two bridges—Clearwater and Horse Thief—were constructed during the year; the latter
being quite a problem owing to the rocky nature of the river-bed and also the necessity of
diverting the channel.
Numerous bridges on the Big Bend Highway were repaired during the season.
Nelson-Creston Electoral District.
Major reconstruction was carried out on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, between
Miles 453.8 and 465.6, for a total of 5.5 miles. This work was carried out with a 1%-yard
drag-line at an average cost of 0.12 cent per cubic yard.
Improvement was also carried out at the junction of the Fraser Landing Road and the
Nelson-Kaslo Road.
In co-operation with the general programme of the Province, 103 % miles of our main
highways were treated with road-oil during the summer. DISTRICT REPORTS. O 19
Kaslo-Slocan Electoral District.
Reconstruction-work this year was carried out at various points between Nakusp and
Passmore and a very marked improvement of this highway was noticeable during the year.
The tunnel at South Slocan, which has been causing considerable trouble during the last few
years, was partly eliminated this year, when about half the tunnel was " daylighted." This
was a very successful project and should eliminate the danger of falling rocks in the future.
A total of 3.40 miles of new double flush-coat was laid down during the season and 6.52
miles reflushed.
Three bridges on the Slocan Valley Road were replaced during the season with culverts
and fills.
The bridge at Coffee Creek was replaced this year with 50-foot steel beams on concrete
abutments. The old queen truss at Gerrard was replaced with a stringer structure and a new
two 100-foot span (Howe truss) erected at Marblehead. Forty-five bridges in the district
were repaired during the season.
A new two-lane ferry was built for the Needles-Fauquier run and also a new barge for
the East and West Arrow Park run.
Snow-removal operations were very light during the season with a total of 2,343 snow-
plough miles maintained during the season at a cost of $17.90 per mile.
Rossland-Trail Electoral District.
Important work was carried out on the widening of the Trail-Fruitvale Cut-off during
the season, when 6,600 cubic yards of solid rock were removed by Government forces, bringing the highway to a standard width of 24 feet.
Considerable work was undertaken on the Rossland-Cascade Highway and consisted
chiefly of " daylighting " rock-cuts and general widening. This work was done in order to
assist snow-ploughing operations and covered a distance of 25 miles.
The continuation of Wellington Street was also completed. This work eliminates the
very bad existing road.
Preparatory work was also carried out on 0.61 mile of asphaltic sidewalk at Castlegar.
All bridges were well maintained during the season.
Snow-removal was light during the winter. For the first time we kept open for traffic
the Rossland-Cascade Highway and traffic was maintained until the spring thaw; 4,142
snow-plough miles were maintained at an average cost of $51.50 per mile.
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 the district during the year under review.
Ordinary relief was employed to a limited extent.
Tax Work.—Farmers' taxes to the amount of $7,625.75 were worked out on road-work.
Aid to Mines.—Eight appropriations under the " Mines Development Act," amounting in
all to $1,700, were spent on mining roads and trails during the fiscal year.
Roads.—One mile of reconstruction of the Trans-Canada Highway east of Spences Bridge
in heavy rock-work was carried out under contract, and 1*4 miles of new construction was
performed by day-labour on the Squamish-Britannia Road.
Flood-damage to Roads, Bridges, and Dykes.—In the month of October a flood of unprecedented proportions occurred in the areas of Bridge River, Pemberton Meadows, and Squamish,
causing much damage and destruction to bridges on the Bridge River Road, and to dykes'
roads, and bridges at Pemberton Meadows and Squamish.
Rehabilitation-work has been continuous since the flood in the various areas affected, and
is still proceeding. The sum of $60,000 has been spent on this work up to the present,' and
additional funds will be required to complete in the next fiscal year.
Roads Generally. — Maintenance and minor improvements were performed on roads
throughout the district, and their general condition throughout the year was satisfactory.
Bituminous Surfacing.—No bituminous surfacing was done in this district. O 20 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1940-41.
Bridges.—By reason of flood-damage, eight bridges were completely rebuilt and seven
bridges were repaired and restored to an improved condition.
General maintenance was carried out on bridges throughout the district in the amount
of $8,783.47. The largest single item in maintenance was the reflooring of the Lytton Bridge
at a cost of $4,037.32.    Reconstruction of Haller Bridge amounted to $289.
Ferries.—The five ferries operated successfully throughout the year, with the exception
of the High Bar Ferry, which was sunk at its mooring in November by drift-logs. The
pontoons were repaired and the ferry resumed service after a brief lay-up.
Snow-removal.—On account of the light snowfall, the work required in this connection
was very limited during the past winter.
North Cariboo Electoral District.
General Maintenance and Minor Betterments.—General maintenance was carried out on
all trunk and main highways throughout the year. A large amount of gravel resurfacing
was done. Minor betterments were carried out, including a 4.9-mile diversion on the Nazko
Main Road. Approximately 10 miles of farm roads were reconstructed and generally improved.
Rural roads were maintained as funds permitted, assisted by relief and tax work.
Red Bluff Diversion, Cariboo Highway, south of Quesnel: 1.95 miles were completed and
made available to traffic. This project was commenced in 1938 and 0.35 mile remains to be
completed to the Quesnel River Bridge and the Quesnel Arterial. This work completely
eliminates the heavy grade and curvature of the old hill leaving Quesnel.
North Boundary Project, Cariboo Highway: The North Boundary Project which involved
heavy construction to reduce the existing hairpin curve and curves at this point is 60 per
cent, completed.
Hixon Creek Bridge Diversion, Cariboo Highway: The 0.5-mile approaches to the relocated Hixon Creek Bridge involved heavy excavation on the new location, which was warranted by the 6-per-cent. grade and full visibility obtained. This work was charged to
District Vote funds as well as the above loan.
Barkerville Road: Some widening of the road-bed was done near Wells and between
Wells and Barkerville.    Some improvements were also carried out in the Wells Townsite.
Ferries.—All ferries were maintained until mid-December, after which cages were operated due to lack of ice-bridges. The old Alexandria 8-ton ferry was replaced with a new
10-ton standard reaction type ferry, which was built in our yard in Quesnel and then floated
down the Fraser to Alexandria. Only a few hours 'were necessary to inake the change over.
All ferries were conditioned ready to float in March and early April.
Bridges.—Hixon Bridge No. 82: The only bridge-construction worth noting is the new
70-foot King truss constructed on the revised line at Hixon Creek, replacing the old 60-foot
span constructed in 1919. The bridge was constructed on a 4-degree curve and a 6-per-cent.
grade with 6-inch superelevation.
Lynes No. 94, Kersley No. 88, and Baker Creek No. 12 were redecked and minor repairs
were carried out on numerous other structures.
Surfacing.—No bituminous mulch or spray-coating.
Snow-removal.—The past winter will be remembered as the mildest experienced for possibly fifty years. The snowfall was generally light with considerable rainfall and thaws,
which resulted in the ploughed roads becoming sheets of ice, necessitating consistent and
continued sanding. A total of 214.5 miles were snow-ploughed, with 4,105 snow-plough
miles.    Generally speaking, the spring of 1941 opened about a month earlier than usual.
South Cariboo Electoral District.
Maintenance.—The maintenance of all roads was adequately carried out and valuable
assistance obtained by using tax money. Camps were again established for this purpose
where possible.    Taxes amounted to $12,000.
Construction and Reconstruction.—No major construction or reconstruction work was
carried out during the year.
Bridges.—All structures kept in good condition.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was extremely light and no difficulty was experienced in keeping roads open to traffic at moderate expenditure. Trans-Canada Highway, west of Aldergrove.

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. While direct relief
was curtailed considerably during the year, such relief labour as was available was used
wherever needed.
Highway Maintenance.—All roads throughout the district were maintained during the
year. Several culverts were replaced with ones of a larger size. Settlers worked out their
taxes on roads adjacent to their farms and much effective work was accomplished. Plank
streets in Port Essington were kept in repair during the year. A total of 21,395 cubic yards
of gravel were spread during the year.
Highway-construction.—A contract on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway awarded
to F. Mannix & Company in 1939 was completed 100 per cent.
A further contract on the same highway from Mile 121.8 to Mile 125.8 was awarded to
W. C. Arnett & Company, and was 30 per cent, completed at March 31st, 1941.
Mining-trails.—Work on seven mining-trails, improving, widening, and extending, was
undertaken during the year.

structure at Attrill Creek, 22 miles south of Hazelton.
Boulder Creek Bridge No. 5, 20.5 miles from Hazelton, was repaired with T.K. reinforcement, new stringers, deck, and hand-rail.
Brickenden Bridge No. 221 at the Hazelton Ferry was rebuilt of native timber to replace
the original structure carried away by flood waters.
Mud Creek Bridge No. 78 on the Smithers-Hazelton Road was replaced with a new structure on new crib abutments.
The north tower of the Skeena Suspension Bridge No. 97 on the Kispiox Valley Road
was repaired, new timber and concrete being used. All needle-beams on the structure were
reinforced and wire-rope slings adjusted.
Rapid deterioration of the upper chords on the Smithers Bridge No. 98 over the Bulkley
River made it necessary to replace several chord leaves in each span.
A new bridge of native timber was built over Taylor Creek, Dorreen, to replace an old
structure.
The crib at the south end of Williams Creek Bridge No. 124 was moved by high water
and a pile pier was driven to replace the crib.
Kitsequekla River Bridge No. 61 was completed. A concrete abutment on the north
bank and a pile-trestle approach on the south bank were constructed in 1938. A 120-foot
Howe-truss span and decking on the trestle approach completed the structure.
Minor repairs were carried out on forty-eight other bridges throughout the district.
Ferries.—All ferries were maintained during the year.    No renewals were necessary.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Considerable patching was done to the surfacing, both in Smithers
and Terrace.
Buildings.—An open 54-foot extension was built to the equipment-shed at Smithers.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal was light. A total fall of 31 inches at Smithers and 24
inches at Terrace, with heavier falls at Hazelton and outside points, made it necessary to
plough 266 miles of road.    A total of 1,526 snow-plough miles were cleaned up.
Prince Rupert Electoral District.
Prince Rupert and Vicinity.—Roads.—No new construction was attempted this past year
on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. Work accomplished consisted of widening corners and surfacing with crushed rock.
The bituminous surface of No. 3 Cow Bay Crossing has been giving trouble with potholes after every rain, which have had to be filled in and patched.
Approaches to the Court-house have been kept in good repair.
Port Simpson roads and sidewalks have been kept in good repair. On my last inspection
I found everything in better condition than for years. Cribbing and building-up was the extent of the work at Dodge Cove.
Jap Inlet work was continued by removing old plank and filling with rock and clam-shell.
Considerable new planking, stringers, and posts were used on the Smith Island sidewalks
at Osland.    Some new work on the trail was carried out.
At Oona River, work consisted of removing the planking and putting in graded trails.
We are gradually getting rid of the old sidewalks.
Lewis Island trail will soon be all rock and gravel. More planking was removed and
filled with permanent grading.
Bridges.—Galloway Rapids Bridge No. 68 was trussed and tightened. Considerable
repairs will have to be started very soon on this bridge. Some sills and posts need replacing,
which can only be carried out at extremely low tide.
McBride Street Foot-bridge No. 18: The 48-foot span was renewed this year. Bents
and sills were renewed. One new landing was put in and general repairs made to the
approach.
Osland Bridges were repaired and are in good condition.
Jap Inlet Bridge was given some repairs but will have to be renewed this year.
Oona River Bridge No. 20 had to be raised at one end and is now in good condition.
Oona River Bridge No. 81 at the upper end of the settlement, which is a King-truss
span, has been practically renewed.
Wharves.-—Prince Rupert Wharf: Extensive redecking with new joists wherever needed
was carried out. New flooring and new joists were put in in No. 3 and No. 4 ice-houses.
New doors were put in on No. 1 shed. Extensive enlargement was carried out in the Halibut
Marketing Board's offices. A new office was renovated for Customs use. Repairs and changes
were made in the ladies' and gentlemen's lavatories. Considerable fender piling and guards
were added and new spreaders wherever necessary.    Leaks were stopped on No. 5 shed roof.
Salt Lakes Floats: Trail and diving platform have been kept up. Ladies' and gentlemen's dressing-rooms have been subjected to considerable vandalism during the winter
months, but will be put in shape before the holiday season starts.
Cow Bay floats have given no trouble this year, but crib dolphin will be rebuilt in the
near future.
Court-house.—Court-house grounds and greenhouse are in fine condition. Trees were
taken from shrubbery and planted in front of the Court-house.
Court-house building roof was repaired and parapet wall removed. Haddington stone
parapet pillars are now stored in warehouse yard. Chimney from Judge's chambers was
repaired.    Windows were repaired where necessary and all windows painted.
Snowfall.—Snowfall was quite heavy in February and 12 miles were kept open, involving
96 snow-plough miles.
New Equipment-shed.—A new equipment-shed was built behind the present warehouse
on Lots 6, 7, and 8, Block 17, in the City of Prince Rupert. Two sheds are 28 by 20 feet,
with doors wide enough to take in any existing unit. Three sheds measure 20 by 11 feet 9
inches with double doors, all with corrugated-iron roof and rough siding and batting.
Flooring of one shed, 28 by 20 feet, is 3- by 12-inch rough fir and the remainder crushed
rock.
Machinery and Plant.—All machinery units, plant and equipment have been well maintained and the supply of tools kept up to the maximum requirements.
Queen Charlotte Islands (South End).—No. 18, Port Clements-Tlell Road: Further work
was done in removing the old plank wheel-tracks and replacing with solid earth foundation in
the vicinity of Mile 2 and Mile 11. A power-shovel was sent over and greatly facilitated the
work this year. The road-bed was not finished to the full width which we eventually intend to
have, namely, 16 feet; the work being more in the nature of letting traffic by on a road-bed
with more stability than the planks, which are fast deteriorating and breaking up. A complete survey with estimate was made of the 12.7 miles from Port Clements to Tlell for
standardizing this work either for contract or day-labour in carrying on future reconstruction
as funds permit.
Details of the work done are as follows: Near Mile 2, ditched with team plough and
scraper, 1,200 lineal feet; removed planks and gravelled 500 feet, hauling 265 cubic yards of
gravel.    Near Mile 11, removed planks and gravelled approximately 6,000 lineal feet, hauling DISTRICT REPORTS. O 23
2,850 cubic yards of gravel; filled and ballasted between the planks approximately 1,700
lineal feet, hauling 1,200 cubic yards of sand; ditched with power-shovel, 1,000 lineal feet;
excavated 570 cubic yards with power-shovel for fill. While the gravelling was under way,
the plank road was repaired where necessary. The snow-plough was taken over once in
February and planks sanded for ice with 20 cubic yards.
No. 24, Skidegate-Tlell Road: Road was moved back where washout occurred between
Mile 22 and Mile 23 and a breakwater of trees placed to prevent further erosion; 99 cubic
yards of gravel used. Mile 15 to Mile 16: Moved road back, slashed, cleared, and graded 1,675
lineal feet; gravel, 396 cubic yards. Mile 13 to Mile 14: Repaired breakwater and extended
it 100 feet;   repaired six culverts and put running planks on three bridges.
No. 25, Queen Charlotte City-Skidegate Road: Widened road at Mile 41 and cut off
narrow corner between Mile 42 and the end of the road; hauled gravel for surfacing from
Indian Reserve, 714 cubic yards; fixed and renewed five culverts and put running planks on
four bridges.
No. 23, Sandspit:   General maintenance;  slashing brush and filling holes.
No. 17, Port Clements-Mayer Lake Road for 2 miles and No. 8, Dunroe Road, form part
of a projected road to eventually link up Port Clements with Masset, a distance of about 31
miles. On road No. 17, corners were brushed out; 150 feet ditched; ploughed with snow-
plough in winter.
On road No. 8, 104 cubic yards of gravel were hauled on to the puncheon; hauled 9 cubic
yards of sand on hill for winter driving. A survey was made for the purpose of estimating
improvements to this steep gumbo hill, which is about 1 mile south of Dunroe's farm.
A new trail, 6 miles long, was built for foot traffic from Skidegate Inlet to connect with
the end of the A. P. Allison logging-railway at Skidegate Lake on Moresby Island. This trail
has many useful purposes, giving access to a possible aeroplane spruce area and to a vicinity
where much logging is going on.
Kumdis Island Trail and Yakoun Trail were kept up for the settlers using them.
There was no new bridge-work in the south end of Queen Charlotte Islands; only repairs
and general upkeep. Miller Creek Bridge on the Tlell-Skidegate Road is due for renewal and
a survey was made for a new layout.
The Queen Charlotte City lockup had repairs and additions, it having been made a divisional point with a sergeant in charge.
The Government garage and warehouse at Queen Charlotte City was fixed up with new
foundation posts and braces.
Queen Charlotte Islands (North End).—There was no new construction in the Masset
District during this last fiscal year, work being confined chiefly to repairs and maintenance.
On No. 5, Masset-Tow Hill Road, some more filling was made at Mile 1.5, where the plank
roadway is subject to flooding during very wet weather.
On No. 16, Old Masset-New Masset Road, sections of the plank road were taken up at
Miles 0.2 and 2.3 and filled with gravel and clam-shell, which is shaping into a first-class road.
Masset streets and sidewalks were kept in good shape. Clearing and burning was done
at intervals to give access to new buildings, and lanes were made passable by hauling
gravel, etc.
Delkatla Bridge was repaired by replacing cedar piling where they had been badly eaten
by sea-fleas.
Other repairs were done to Chown Bridge, Sangan Bridge, and Swan Creek Bridge.
Police lockup at Masset was painted.
Atlin Electoral District.
Stikine Division.—The work in this section consisted mainly of maintenance, no work of
major importance being undertaken during the year.
Telegraph Creek-Dease Lake Road No. 51: The work on this road consisted of grading,
repairing and cleaning ditches, and gravelling where necessary. Traffic was maintained, but
a considerable amount of gravelling is required to put this road in shape for heavier traffic.

No. 14, Halfway Bridge No. 15, Ruby Road No. 1, Spruce Creek Bridge No. 3, O'Donnel Road
Bridge No. 5, Indian River Bridge No. 2.
South Atlin Division.—In this division the Alice Arm Suspension Bridge No. 120 was
completely dismantled and material removed and stored. This was necessitated by the floods
causing a weakening of the structure and rendering it dangerous. The groyne at Stewart
was strengthened and extended 200 feet south. The old Stewart Court-house was reconstructed as a workshop and garage.   Other work in the division was mainly maintenance.
Stewart-Hyder Road No. 102: This road was hard-surfaced for a distance of % mile and
a seal-coat put on the other 2 miles. Drains and ditches were cleared, and at Bridge No. 90

ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8  (FORT GEORGE AND OMINECA
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, J. W. Miers, Prince George.
Fort George Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—Maintenance was carried out wherever necessary throughout
the district. Enforcement of load restrictions during the break-up period was instrumental
in keeping spring maintenance costs to the minimum and prevented extensive damage, which
would otherwise have resulted. Farmers were again permitted to work out their taxes and a
large mileage of settlement and farm roads were gravelled, improved, and maintained.
Highway Reconstruction and Improvement.—Cariboo Road: Approximately 1.5 miles of
reconstruction left unfinished the previous year was completed to 30-foot road-bed width and
gravelled. An additional 3.6 miles between Mileages 262 and 282 were reconstructed to that
width and gravelled. In connection with this work, seven concrete culverts were constructed,
having a total length of 300 feet. Two of these were of precast-pipe construction 24 and 36
inches in diameter, the remaining five being small box-culverts, approximately 2 by 2 by 40
built in-place.    These have proved both economical and satisfactory.
Widening was commenced, using gas-shovel and trucks, on the hill east of the Fraser
River, near Prince George, at Mileages 291-292.    This work was not completed.
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway: One mile was widened to 24-foot road-bed width
on improved alignment 13 miles west of Prince George. Between Tete Jaune and Mount
Robson a section of the old Grand Trunk Pacific tote-road, approximately 10 miles long, was
reconditioned and made passable for motor-vehicles. Two miles of this work was on new and
permanent location.    Near McBride 3 miles were regravelled.
Cariboo Road North (Summit Lake Road): One mile of this highway was reconstructed
with 24-foot road-bed and gravel-surfaced.
Fort George-Chief Lake Road: Two short sections were reconstructed on improved alignment to eliminate dangerous curves.
Bridges and Culverts.—No new bridges were constructed and, with the exception of bank-
protection at the Salmon River Bridge, no important work was carried out from the bridge
vote. This protection consisted of twenty-three pile groynes and approximately 9,000 cubic
yards of embankment.
A total of 500 lineal feet of concrete culverts were constructed, and also a number of
cedar boxes.
Ferries.—The usual service was maintained by the reaction ferries at Miworth, Isle
Pierre, and Croydon.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was approximately 30 per cent, below normal with the
heaviest single fall in November.    All main roads were kept open.
Buildings.—A contract was let for painting the interior walls, woodwork, etc., of the
Prince George Court-house, and two of the three floors completed during the fiscal year.
Omineca Electoral District (East).
Maintenance of Highways.—Approximately 700 miles of road were maintained in this
district during the year. In order to keep roads in a satisfactory condition it was necessary
to utilize farmers who were working out their taxes. This work was applied largely to
settlement roads.
Highway Construction and Improvement.—On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway,
7 miles west of Vanderhoof, 1V2 miles were reconstructed to standard. About 5 miles immediately east of Fort Fraser and also 3 miles east of Vanderhoof were regravelled.
Mining Projects.—A new road on new location was constructed from Mile 15.5 on the
Manson Creek Road to the Pinchi Lake mercury mine. This new road is 13.5 miles in length
and was constructed under contract by the W. C. Arnett Construction Company. This work
was practically completed before freeze-up and has been of tremendous value to the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company in getting supplies and equipment into their property,
as well as getting the mercury out to the railroad.
Considerable improvement was made on the Manson Creek Road by way of gravelling
and putting in new culverts. 0 26 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1940-41.
Bridges and Culverts.—The McDonald Bridge, 3 miles west of Endako, was replaced by a
double 5- by 6-foot cedar culvert and fill. This has made a decided improvement on the road
at this point.
Major repairs were made to the Nechako River Bridge at Fort Fraser by way of renewing
caps and putting on scab reinforcement on all spans. The Nechako River Bridge at Vanderhoof was also repaired and a longitudinal deck put on.
All smaller structures were repaired as required.
Ferries.—The Takla Lake, Finmoore, Hulatt, and Fort Fraser ferries were in operation
throughout the season.
Snow-removal.—In all, 250 miles of road were kept open during the winter at a cost of
$4,093.63, or an average cost per mile of $16, including rentals of equipment. Truck-ploughs
were used largely this past winter and they have proved very economical in comparison with
tractor-ploughs. It was necessary on one or two occasions to put the tractor-ploughs in operation on roads north of Vanderhoof and Fort St. James. The average snowfall in this district
was much lighter than usual.
Omineca Electoral District (West) .
Maintenance of Highways.—General maintenance was carried out on 650 miles of
travelled road, maintenance of settlement roads being mostly taken care of by tax workers.
Highway Reconstruction and Improvements.—Burns Lake-Babine Road, between Mile 20
and Mile 22, has been reconstructed on new location to eliminate heavy grades and poor
alignment. Owing to the late date at which the work was authorized the road could not be
completed and approximately 1% miles remain to be completed to Babine Lake.
Donald's Landing Road:  2 miles of new construction completed.
Telkwa Coal Road:   XVi miles widened and gravelled.
Hunter Basin Mining Road: Approximately 9 miles of road constructed by contract.
This road is very narrow with some heavy grades. Considerable improvement will have to be
carried out before this road will stand any heavy traffic.
Ferries.—Service was maintained at Francois Lake by Francois Lake Ferry. Improvements were made by way of additional ventilators, and a new main deck was partially
completed.
Bridges.—Strimbold Bridge, an 87-foot log-trestle, across Bulkley River at Topley, was
renewed. Maintenance and improvements were carried out on twenty-six other bridges. The
diversion of Nos. 522 and 523 Conrad Bridges completed. This eliminates both of these
bridges.
Snow-removal.—Two hundred and eighty miles of the more important main roads were
kept open. This work was carried out on the most part by truck snow-ploughs. Tractor
outfits were only used to widen after snow-ploughing by trucks had become too narrow.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8a  (PEACE RIVER ELECTORAL DISTRICT).
District Engineer, F. J. Clark, Pouce Coupe.
Peace River Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highivays.—Maintenance-work was carried out on all travelled roads.
The early run-off resulted in considerable damage to the main highways, which damage has
since been repaired. Owing to the extremely dry season of 1940 roads ravelled badly and
caused great inconvenience from dust, which continued until freeze-up. The usual loading
restrictions were placed on all highways during the run-off period, resulting in a material
saving on maintenance costs. There were 266 miles of road maintained by tractors and heavy
graders and 112 miles patrolled by light graders.
Highway Construction and Improvement.—Grande Prairie-Fort St. John-Peace Pass:
From Mile 0 to Pouce Coupe, reconstructed 2.5 miles to a 24-foot width, brushed 4.6 miles and
replaced several culverts which had become dangerous. From Pouce Coupe to Dawson Creek,
raised the grade for a distance of 2.1 miles and installed new culverts, also cleaned out ditches.
From Dawson Creek to Sweetwater, reconstructed 4.6 miles to a 24-foot standard, renewed
culverts and cleaned out ditches. DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 27
Sweetwater to Taylor Ferry, reconditioned 6.2 miles and cleaned out ditches. From
Taylor Ferry to Fort St. John, raised grade for a distance of 2.4 miles, installed culverts
where necessary and cleaned out ditches.
Fort St. John to Halfway River, widened 4.3 miles to 20-foot width and also cleaned out
right-of-way to full width.
Halfway River to Hudson Hope, graded to 16-foot width 7.6 miles, the remaining distance
will be located during the next season, or as soon as funds permit; at present the highway
follows the old wagon-road, which will have to be revised.
From Hudson Hope to Gold Bar the road was maintained and 4 miles of right-of-way
brushed.
Dawson Creek-Rolla-Clayhurst: Raised grade and widened to 20-foot width 3.5 miles
south of Rolla; installed several culverts, also cleaned out ditches; constructed 2.1 miles of
new road 1 mile west of the Alberta Boundary north of the Peace River near Clayhurst;
raised grade for a distance of 2.2 miles south of Clayhurst Ferry and installed several culverts.
East Pine-Moberly-Hudson Hope: This road was brushed and graded as far as taxes in
this district would permit. Some timber was taken out at Moberly Lake for the bridge over
the Moberly River;   this was partly on relief and partly on taxes.
East Pine-Commotion Creek: Construction on this road began June 14th and finished
November 1st, the total distance is 35 miles. The standard was 20-foot width with 7 per
cent, maximum gradient and 10-degree curvature. All bridges are designed to carry 35 tons.
The funds for construction were furnished by the Mines Department, but our forces carried
the work through to completion under Public Works supervision.
Fort St. John-Alberta Boundary: This road was widened on both sides of the Beatton
River Valley and the road pushed through to 2 miles east of the Cecil Lake P.O. Several
culverts were installed and grade raised for a distance of 3.1 miles.
Rose Prairie-Hines Creek Highway: This highway is being cleared and widened but will
only be fit for winter transportation for some time to come, or until funds permit. There still
remains 8 miles to clear so as to make connection with the Alberta Boundary.
Tupper-Hays-Gundy: Grade was raised and road widened from Hays P.O. to a point
3 miles south. Several culverts were renewed and sides of road brushed, also ditches cleaned
throughout the whole distance.
Pouce Coupe—Dawson Creek (South Road) : Installed three new culverts, raised grade
for a distance of 2.2 miles; this road is the one which will eventually be incorporated "into the
main highway from the Alberta Boundary to Hudson Hope.
Pouce Coupe-Dawson Creek (North Road) : Ditches deepened and road raised for a
distance of 1.4 miles;   several culverts renewed and the road cleared of brush.
Montney-Murdale: Extended the road for a distance of 3.6 miles; new culverts installed
and the remainder of road brushed and maintained.
Tax Work.—This work has been of great advantage to this district as we have raised the
standard of the farm roads to a much higher level and improved the highways to a great
extent.
Roads Generally.—There has been a decided improvement in our roads throughout the
district this season; there has been very little rain and this has helped on our maintenance
to such an extent that we have had an opportunity to construct a great number of minor
improvements.
Gravel is badly needed on the road from Dawson Creek to Fort St. John, as this is the
only outlet for grain, stock, etc., from the north side of the Peace River; in rainy weather
this road is invariably tied up for days at a time.
Bridges.—We have finished two bridges on the Commotion Creek Road, which completes
this work. One was a King truss with trestle-approach on the west side; this was over
Commotion Creek. The other was a six-bay trestle bridge over Wabbie Creek. The Riley
King truss was also completed this year, consisting of a King truss and 135-foot trestle-
approach over the Pouce Coupe River. The Moose River trestle bridge was strengthened and
two bents renewed.
New decking was laid on 1,210 lineal feet of small trestles and protection-work was
carried out on the Howe truss at Halfway and also at the Cutbank River. All King trusses
and Howe trusses have been taken up and checked over. O 28
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1940-41.
Ferries.—A new ferry was installed at the East Pine; this was of a reaction type on
pontoons.    All other ferries have been repainted, caulked, and checked over thoroughly.
Snow-removal.—Snow was light this season and cost of removal of same below normal.
The main roads were kept open throughout the season, and traffic uninterrupted. The truck
snow-plough proved a decided success.
Maintenance of Government Buildings.—The new Government Building has been completed this year, and all buildings have been maintained. iltefii.v^
