REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., October 18th, 1943.
Hon. Herbert Anscom.b,
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 1942-43:—
GENERAL OUTLINE OF WORK.
Owing to the necessity of exercising the strictest economy during the period of the
war, new construction-work throughout the Province was limited to highways where
such work was of vital importance for the maintenance and safety of traffic, for the
needs of the travelling public, and in connection with works of national defence or the
completion of projects that were commenced but not completed during the previous year.
The principal hard-surfacing work undertaken was upon those portions of highways that during the previous year had been reconstructed with a view to completing
the hard surface.
Local roads were kept in a good state of repair and were widened, ditched, and
improved as required. All work undertaken was satisfactorily completed and a great
improvement in the maintenance of surfaced roads was noticeable, all repair-work being
done promptly and in a satisfactory manner.
HIGHWAY-CONSTRUCTION.
On Vancouver Island the relocation of the north end of the Malahat section of the
Island Highway near Mill Bay was commenced, and this work was completed preparatory to hard-surfacing during the following year, with the exception of a very short
stretch north of Millstream and the construction of the new bridge over this stream.
Construction was continued on the Usk—Cedarvale section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, also on the North Thompson Highway, which, when completed, will
connect Kamloops on the Trans-Canada Highway with the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway at Tete Jaune Cache. Work was also undertaken on the Hope-Princeton
section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway. On the Trans-Canada Highway
widening and reconstruction were undertaken between Revelstoke and Sicamous. Various other works of construction and reconstruction on short stretches of highway were
undertaken on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway and the Okanagan Highway.
The principal surfacing work completed was on the Island Highway, V.I., at Col-
wood, Malahat Drive, and Fanny Bay; also the road to the military camp at Nanaimo,
Quarantine Road, Rocky Point Road, and Wilfert Road near Victoria. On the Trans-
Canada Highway surfacing was completed at Hunter Creek and Silver Creek near
Hope; Kamloops-Savona section and in the vicinity of Salmon Arm. On the Okanagan
Highway surfacing was completed between Vernon and Kelowna, on the Dog Lake section, and on the Waterman Hill Diversion south of Penticton. Work was also undertaken widening Marine Drive, West Vancouver, and on the approaches to Hope Bridge. O 6
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
SURFACING.
Throughout the year a total of approximately 141 miles of new surfacing and
resurfacing was completed on Provincial highways; details of the mileage completed
on the various highways are given in the report of the Surfacing Engineer.

For further 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, although the number of persons needing such relief is dwindling
very rapidly.
FLOODS.
Generally speaking, the flood conditions throughout the Province during the year
were not extreme; however, some serious flooding occurred in the South Okanagan and
Similkameen Districts, involving damage to highways and bridges. There was a
serious cloud-burst in the Rossland-Trail district which caused considerable damage,
particularly in the vicinity of Trail; and there were also quite serious flood conditions
in the Fernie District.
SNOW-REMOVAL.
An unusually heavy snowfall throughout the Province during the early part of the
year taxed the Department's snow-removal equipment and forces to the utmost, but,
notwithstanding the difficulties encountered, all main roads were kept open continuously
and only very minor delays were occasioned on secondary roads. Throughout the
Province 8,362 miles of road were kept open by snow-ploughing, involving a total of
147,244 snow-plough miles at an average cost of $25.30 per mile kept open. During the
previous year 4,401 miles of roads were ploughed and kept open at an average cost of
§13.50 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 21,674 miles shows an increase of 60
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 REPORT OF DEPUTY MINISTER.
0 7
includes 504 miles of municipal highways, classified as arterial, primary, or secondary.
The total mileage may be classified as follows:—
Trunk and main highways     7,091
Local roads     5,596
Settlement, industrial, and mining roads     8,987
TotaL
21,674
In addition, there are 10,459 miles of trails on the registers, of which 6,185 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.
Due to the rationing of gasoline and rubber, traffic across this bridge was below
the traffic recorded for the previous year. Traffic amounted to 1,803,748 vehicles, and
the revenue collected during the year was $227,375.65.
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:—

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 35,456 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. .    mYn>J
Deputy Minister.
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECT.
The activities of this Branch have been curtailed considerably due to war conditions and the restrictions imposed by the Federal Government on any construction that
is not for the war effort.
Priorities have been difficult to obtain for essential materials, and permits required
for construction, other than general maintenance for construction, valued over $500;
and even if one obtained the necessary permits and priorities one still had difficulty in
obtaining the materials or labour.
CAPITAL EXPENDITURE.
The new nurses' home at Victoria and the hospital at Oliver were completed for
the Sisters of St. Anne.
Plans and specifications were prepared for a new Public Works garage and workshop at Williams Lake,' due to fire having destroyed the former one.
A disastrous fire occurred at Tranquille, destroying the fire-hall, canteen, and all
the equipment. Plans were prepared for a permanent building, but these had to be
modified due to the requirements of the Federal Controller of Construction.
Plans were prepared for remodelling the offices of the Liquor Control Board in
Victoria.
Plans were also prepared for new lockups at Dawson Creek, Port Hardy, Terrace,
and a police residence at Salmon Arm, but no bids were received, except for the latter
building, which is now nearing completion.
The Government acquired a further unit to the Provincial Laboratory, Hornby
Street, Vancouver.    This was remodelled and equipped and is now in operation.
The Atlin Hospital was also completed during this period.
REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE.
While to some extent this service was also curtailed, due to lack of material and
labour, we have endeavoured to carry out all the necessary work within the bounds of
our limitations.
AIR-RAID PRECAUTIONS.
Along with Colonel Latta, the Chief Warden for Government buildings, we have
organized and equipped all the buildings in the Defence Area for this service, and have REPORT OF BRIDGE ENGINEER. O 9
conducted extensive tests at the most important buildings in Victoria and Vancouver
in co-operation with the Provincial and civic A.R.P. bodies. The staffs have co-operated
and taken a keen interest in the work, and while it is hoped that on no occasion will
their services be needed yet it is felt that the knowledge acquired will assist in protecting life and property in the Government service should any raid occur.
A complete compilation and valuation of Government buildings and equipment was
made for purposes of the Federal air-raid insurance.
POST-WAR REHABILITATION.
The Branch-compiled a complete report on the necessary and suggested building
works that may be contemplated by the Provincial and civic authorities in the Province.
Some preliminary sketch-plans have been prepared for Provincial works; while in
other cases, where works have been held up due to war conditions, the plans and specifications are all completed ready to call for bids.
FURNITURE.
This service has been maintained and while it has been impossible, through restrictions, to provide all requirements we have been able to supply a considerable amount of
the requisitions from the furniture released by the closing-down of the Provincial
Income Tax Department and other economies.
SCHOOLS.
A two-room school has been erected at Langford and a new high and elementary
school at North Saanich, besides supplying sketch-plans and other stock plans to various
rural School Boards.
Please accept my thanks for your personal interest in our work, and I appreciate the
co-operation and assistance rendered to this Branch by the various District Engineers.
I also wish to thank the members of this Branch and other tradesmen at the
various buildings associated with us for their co-operation and assistance during these
difficult times.
Respectfully submitted.
H. Whitaker,
Chief Architect.
REPORT OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEER.
Work was curtailed throughout the year on account of the war. Materials had
increased greatly in price, were hard to obtain, and deliveries much delayed.
The labour situation was bad. Many of our best men had gone into war industries
or into national defence and, as a result, our bridge crews were depleted to such an
extent that it was difficult to get the work done.
Due to the numerous activities in connection with the war, traffic over the bridges
was, in many instances, of a heavier nature than most of our structures were designed
to carry. As a consequence, our efforts were directed largely to an attempt to maintain
the bridges in a reasonably safe condition for the extraordinary traffic.
Weather conditions were good generally for doing work. Damage was done by
flood, however, in the month of May to the Mclntyre Creek Bridge on the Penticton
Valley Road. The abutments were undermined and road approaches washed out. This
necessitated the rebuilding of the bridge and improvements to the channel of the creek
at the same time. O 10 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
Also during the month of May a heavy rainfall in the area around Rossland and
Trail caused heavy damage to the Pend d'Oreille Road which runs from Waneta to
Nelway.
During the year a fair programme of minor renewals was carried out and, in addition, the following moderate sized structures were built: Alexandria in North Cariboo
District; Barton Ditch and Dunville Creek in Chilliwack; Black Creek in Esquimalt;
Gun Creek in Lillooet; Aveling in Omineca; Mclntyre Creek and Okanagan River in
Similkameen;  and Glacier Creek and Legate Creek in Skeena.
Major structures built were: Nanaimo River on South Fork Road in Cowichan-
Newcastle District; Powers Creek in South Okanagan; and Enderby in North
Okanagan.
Cleaning and painting of the steelwork on the Columbia River Bridge at Trail was
carried out.
New pontoons and traffic decks were built at the Vavenby and Big Bar Ferries. A
boat-landing was installed at Swartz Bay in Saanich.
In the draughting-room the staff was engaged a large part of the time in preparing plans, etc., for the bridges on the Prince Rupert-Terrace-Cedarvale Highway for
the Dominion Government. Plans for eleven bridges had to be made, including those
for a 225-foot span Howe truss, which is the longest yet made in the office.
Both the Headquarters and field staffs met satisfactorily the demands placed upon
them during a year full of difficulties and credit is due them for the work accomplished.
G. M. Duncan,
Bridge Engineer.
REPORT OF THE MECHANICAL SUPERINTENDENT.
INSPECTION OF EQUIPMENT AND MACHINERY.
During the fiscal year 1942-43 every district in the Province was visited and the
equipment and machinery operated by the Department inspected. Detailed reports
covering every unit in the Province have been submitted and are on file. Due to the
difficulty in replacing equipment which has served its usefulness, and also in procuring
material and parts for repairs, many problems have arisen in connection with keeping
equipment and machinery in good working condition. The good standard of work
undertaken in our garages has been maintained in spite of the difficulty in retaining
trained personnel in competition with more attractive wages offered by war industries
and outside contractors. A considerable amount has been expended during the past
few years on garage equipment and tools and this investment is now producing good
results. Many repair jobs are now undertaken by our garage crews which formerly
were done outside.
An increasing number of equipment units from outside districts is being shipped
in to the Public Works Garage at Cloverdale for overhaul and storage in order to take
advantage of the well-equipped repair-shop and storage facilities at that point.
NEW EQUIPMENT.
Purchases of equipment amounting to approximately $104,000 were made during
the year. The equipment purchased included power-graders, trailers, dump-trucks,
light delivery trucks, highway mowers, tar-kettles, sand-spreaders, etc., and a considerable quantity of garage equipment and tools. REPORT OF SURFACING ENGINEER.

REPAIR-SHOPS AND EQUIPMENT-SHEDS.
An equipment-shed was completed at Enderby, North Okanagan District, and a
new paint-shop was completed at Cloverdale.    A site was acquired for a workshop and
sheds at Courtenay.
POWER FERRIES.
The boiler from the S.S. " Bonnington " was installed in the S.S. " Nasookin " at a
cost of approximately $11,000. Structural alterations were made to the Agassiz-
Rosedale Ferry " Eena " at a cost of approximately $3,500.
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:—

REPORT OF THE LOCATING ENGINEER.
During the fiscal year 1942-43 nearly all of the surveys made were to provide
work on specified main roads for the Japanese moved from the coastal areas.
Under agreement with the Dominion the Province was to lay out the work and
assume all costs in connection with the surveys, the Dominion to provide supervision
on construction. During the early part of the construction the Dominion had difficulty in getting Resident Engineers and much of the cross-sectioning was done by
the location parties.
Four main projects were picked, as follows: Blue River-Albreda, 42 miles; Tete
Jaune-Red Pass, 24 miles; Sicamous-Revelstoke (various gaps) ; and Hope-Princeton, 6.7 miles.
All of these roads are in what is known as the " snow belt" and when the parties
were put in the field, snow lying on the ground ran from 2 to 4 feet in depth.
Three parties were used at the start (later changed to two) between Blue River
and Albreda. One party between Tete Jaune to Rainbow beyond Red Pass; one
party between Sicamous and Revelstoke; and one to join the unsurveyed portion on
the Hope-Princeton road.
In addition to the above, seven parties were provided and equipped to locate a
road between Prince Rupert and Kitwanga, a distance of approximately 160 miles,
of which 75 miles were entirely new location. Under agreement with the Dominion,
the Department paid for the chiefs of party only, all other expenses being borne by
the Dominion.
A further seven small surveys were made to either bring existing surveys up to
the higher standard set by the Highway Board or as preliminary work for the
1943-44 programme.
Owing to the conditions and urgency of the work done in 1942-43, costs have
been out of all proportion and any figure set would be useless as a base for future
surveys.
All instruments in the Province were checked and, where necessary, repairs
were arranged and paid for out of the survey vote. Much additional camp equipment, including tents, was purchased and is in good condition for future work.

DISTRICT REPORTS.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 1 (VANCOUVER ISLAND
AND THE ISLANDS).
District Engineer, W. W. Bell, Victoria.
Alberni Electoral District.
General.—Owing to the demand for labour in this district by the timber industries
and war-time construction, labour conditions were particularly bad throughout the year
and appear to be getting worse. Owing to this and weather conditions the carrying-
out of work in this area was most difficult; however, the roads have been fairly well
maintained. Weather conditions were exceptionally bad, heavy frost and snow did
extensive damage to portions of Beaver Creek, Central Lake, and the Canadian Highway.    These roads were repaired.
Road Improvements.—Considerable gravelling was done on the Beaver Creek and
Central Lake Roads for their entire length;   considerably more will have to be done DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 13
before the roads will be of adequate strength to withstand the exceptionally heavy
traffic.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Three and three-tenths miles of Central Lake Road and
2.65 miles of Beaver Creek Road were single sprayed.
Bridges.—Margaret Street Bridge over Roger Creek was replaced; Brennan and
Clarks Bridges, having a length of 95 feet and 80 feet respectively, were replaced with
pile trestles; Proctor Bridge was replaced with a 34-foot frame trestle; Lords and
Woodwards Bridges were replaced with cedar culvert and fill. Maintenance on other
bridges was carried out to the extent that funds were available.
Snow-removal.—One hundred and four miles of roads were kept open; total snow-
plough miles amounted to 1,254.
Traffic.—Due to military and increased logging operations, traffic has increased
considerably, making it increasingly difficult to adequately maintain the roads, especially the main highways which were not designed for this class of traffic.
Cowichan-Newcastle Electoral District.
General.—Owing to increased activity in war production work, the shortage of
labour is becoming more acute and it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain qualified men for the various classes of work, particularly so in the skilled trades. However,
necessary work has been carried out so far; the heavy frost and snow which we had
last winter caused considerable damage to the roads, particularly the surfaced roads.
These are how being repaired, and all the roads will soon be in good condition.
Road Improvements.—Several portions of the Island Highway to the extent of
4.31 miles were reconstructed and surfaced (double spray) between Duncan and Salt-
air; also Spruston Road, 5.2 miles in length, was reinforced with gravel to take care
of the heavy traffic from No. 8 coal-mine.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The Island Highway was resprayed where necessary
between Duncan and Saltair, 4.31 miles were double sprayed and 7.35 miles single
sprayed.
Bridges.—Colliery Bridge on the Extension Road was demolished and replaced
with fill and bridge of short span; three bridges having a total length of 81 feet were
replaced. South Forks Bridge, 130-foot Howe truss with approaches, across the
Nanaimo River was 50 per cent, completed.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall during the past winter was much heavier than usual,
197 miles of roads were kept open;   total snow-plough miles amounted to 3,183.
Esquimalt Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—Major work consisted of reconstruction
and diversion of two sections of the Island Highway (Malahat Drive), north of the
Summit to Mill Bay, which were satisfactorily completed.
A section of the Island Highway near Colwood, subject to heavy military traffic,
was reconstructed and surfaced, together with several other roads on which the same
traffic conditions pertain. The Dominion Government contributed to the surfacing
costs.
Surfacing.—Surfaced highways, generally where of double spray-coat type, suffered severely during the winter and considerable difficulty was experienced in keeping
them even moderately fit for traffic. The difficulty in obtaining asphalt was a hindrance
to this repair-work.
Weather.—The winter was notable for a long period of freezing weather with bare
ground, which was not helpful. Some snow on the higher levels, particularly on the
Malahat, necessitated ploughing, but no great difficulty was experienced in maintaining
traffic. O 14 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
Labour.—Labour conditions, due to the large proportion of skilled workmen who
have gone to essential war industries, caused considerable difficulty in carrying out
work expeditiously.    However, those remaining always did their best.
Comox Electoral District.
Maintenance of Roads.—Surface of all gravel roads was kept in good condition,
and every endeavour was made to keep old asphalt surfaces in shape.
Maintenance of Bridges.—Good progress was made in general repairs, especially
on the Island Highway.    No large renewals were carried out.
Surfacing.—A total of 1.85 miles of Island Highway reconstructed last year was
paved with 3-inch asphalt mulch.
Snow-removal.—Heavy snowfall occurred from January 1st on during January and
February.    No roads were blocked on the main Island Highway at any time.
Equipment.—All machines in use were kept in condition. An additional lot was
purchased in Parksville, making the yard there 100 by 120 feet; also much needed new
property was purchased for a yard at Courtenay.
Nanaimo and The Islands Electoral District.
General.—All roads were maintained in a satisfactory condition. Heavy frosts
and snow which fell during the past winter caused considerable damage to roads,
resulting in increased maintenance costs. Considerable damage was done to the
surfaced roads, particularly in the 5 Acres area, Nanaimo, where military traffic is
very heavy;  these have now been repaired.
Road Improvements.—Wakesiah Avenue, which takes very heavy military and
logging traffic, was reconstructed and surfaced a distance of 1.75 miles.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Two miles of the Island Highway were single sprayed;
also 2.30 miles of other roads in the Nanaimo area. Wakesiah Avenue was double
sprayed for a distance of 1.43 miles.
Bridges.—No new bridges were built or renewals made. All bridges were satisfactorily maintained.
Snow-removal.—One hundred and fifty-five miles of roads were kept open for
traffic;   the total snow-plough miles amounted to 1,976.
Saanich Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—No major highway-construction was
undertaken in the Saanich District during the year, but various roads were widened
and improved as was necessary and labour conditions permitted.
All roads were maintained in a satisfactory condition and all necessary patching
and repairs to hard-surfaced highways and the maintenance of shoulders were carried
out.
Surfacing.—Widening of the highway pavement by strengthening and surfacing
the shoulders proceeded on the East Saanich Road and in the vicinity of the airport at
Sidney;   the road allowance was cleared for its full width.
As a traffic relief for Sidney, a section of the abandoned CN. Railway grade was
adapted to highway travel in order that possible congestion on the one main road might
be relieved should need arise.
Weather.—The winter was notable for a long period of freezing weather with bare
ground, which was not helpful. Some snow on the higher levels, particularly on the
Malahat, necessitated ploughing, but no great difficulty was experienced in maintaining
traffic.
Labour.—Labour conditions due to the large proportion of skilled workmen who
have gone to essential war industries caused considerable difficulty in carrying out
work expeditiously.    However, those remaining always did their best. DISTRICT REPORTS. O 15

AND  NEW WESTMINSTER  ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, E. S. Jones, New Westminster.
Burnaby Electoral District.
Construction.—No construction-work was undertaken in the district this year.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance was carried out on roads, with particular
emphasis on repair of bituminous surface. The Central Arterial Highway right-of-
way from Borden Avenue to North Road was" recleared for a distance of 1.4 miles and
the same was grubbed for 0.7 mile.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A seal-coat was applied to the Grandview-Douglas Highway from Douglas Road School to Edmonds Street, a distance of 2.8 miles.
Snow-removal.—Heavy snowfall was experienced from January 18th to 29th, but
no road block occurred. Truck-ploughs from Port Coquitlam and Cloverdale were
brought in and these, together with the municipal grader, kept traffic going.
Dewdney Electoral District.
Construction.—The major work under this heading was the filling of the
approaches to Pitt River Bridge. This work involved the excavation and hauling of
65,000 cubic yards of material from the bed of the Coquitlam River.
Two 56-inch heavy reinforced culvert-pipes on a concrete cradle were placed under
the fill to take care of drainage in the Coquitlam and Pitt Meadows dyked areas.
The channel of the Coquitlam River below the highway bridge was realigned and
cleaned out, providing a channel which will free the adjacent territory in Port Coquitlam from the danger of flooding.
Reconstruction.-—The loco-Port Moody Road 57r was widened 6 feet with pit-run
gravel for the distance of 1 mile. This was a much needed improvement as the traffic
on this road is increasingly heavy.
On the Coquitlam Road 10R, 1 mile of the existing asphaltic surface adjacent to
Port Coquitlam was widened and recapped with plant-mix asphaltic mulch.
Snow-removal.—From January 18th to 29th heavy snowfall taxed the available
snow-removal equipment to the utmost. The highway as far as Dewdney was kept
open by working the truck-ploughs night and day. On Nicomen Island and on Hatzic
Prairie Road blocks occurred, but we were able to keep the milk-trucks moving without
too extended interruption.
From Deroche east to Agassiz the highway was blocked for ten days. Fifteen-foot
drifts were piled up along Harrison Bay and on Agassiz Mountain; these were beyond
the capacity of our equipment, so an R.D. 8 caterpillar tractor with bulldozer was
rented and put on the work, but it was not until January 29th that the highway from
Vancouver to Agassiz and the Hot Springs was finally open for traffic.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance on roads was carried out, with special
attention being given to bituminous surfaces.
Bridges.—The Gunn Bridge was replaced with a culvert and fill.
Between the C.N.R. crossing at Floods and the district boundary at Silver Creek
2.5 miles were given a heavy coat of gravel. The mile along the C.N.R. at Floods slide
was surfaced with asphaltic mulch by day-labour and sealed; 1.25 miles of mulch
surface were laid by contract to connect this work back to the west boundary of the
district at Hunter Creek.
The Silver Creek Bridge painting was completed. O 16 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
Mackenzie (North) Electoral District.
Construction and Reconstruction.—Slashing and burning brush on B.C. Cement
Road, Texada Island, 3,000 feet. Filling in west side of Thunder Bay Road No.
137, through the Village of Westview, for a distance of 3,000 feet, and improving
all intersections of roads approaching from west side. This fill material was borrowed
from roadside at D.L. 2300, widening this section of Thunder Bay Road No. 137 to an
additional 12 feet for 3,000 feet.
Maintenance.—Maintenance of all roads was carried out to give the travelling
public best results. ' Special consideration and attention was given to grading to keep
down corrugation during dry weather. Patching of hard-surfaced roads took considerable labour to keep in repair.
Bridges.—Only minor repairs to bridges were possible, owing to being unable to
obtain building material and labour.
Ferries.—Hagensborg-Salloomt Ferry was operated throughout the year; one
boat was lost with high water and one new boat was built.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was heavier than usual and cold weather prevailed,
causing the snow to cover the roads for a considerable time, especially in the Bella
Coola Valley.    Hills were kept sanded during heavy frost conditions.
Mackenzie (South) Electoral District.
No construction or reconstruction was done during the fiscal year.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out, several culverts replaced,
ditches cleaned out, but very little gravelling done. Many roads and trails brushed out
and regular grading of the most important roads.
Bridges.—Several bridges required minor repairs.    No major work carried out.
Snow-removal.—There was a heavy snowfall during January which required special
attention, so that roads be kept open for traffic.
North Vancouver Electoral District.
All roads and bridges in this district were maintained in good repair throughout
the year, particular attention being given to eliminating slight irregularities of the
bituminous surfaces with skin-patching.
Construction.—On Marine Drive 67a, from Fourteenth to Seventeenth Streets,
West Vancouver, reconstruction and widening were undertaken to give a paved surface
50 feet wide in this section; 2,816 lineal feet of combined concrete curb and gutter were
laid.
The 15-foot strips between the curbs and edges of the present paving were excavated and replaced with 1,040 cubic yards of crushed rock base course 7 inches deep
and penetrated with heavy liquid asphalt.
An old log culvert under the highway at Fourteenth Street.was removed and
replaced with a reinforced-concrete box culvert 80 by 3 by 6 feet. To form a consolidated foundation for the additional pavement it was necessary to excavate considerable
spongy and unsuitable material and back-fill with gravel and crushed rock.
Surfacing.—On Marine Drive 67a bus turnouts at street intersections between
Thirteenth and Twenty-fifth Streets, together with scattered sections of Dollarton
Highway 73a, were given a double spray-coat. Almost 12,000 square yards were so
treated.
Bridges.—Only minor repairs to bridges were necessary.
Snow-removal.—During the heavy snowfalls the roads were kept clear. The
average cost per mile of clearing about 18 miles was $15.50. Marine Drive, West Vancouver.
Coquitlam River Protection, looking up-stream along new channel.  DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 17
Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral District.
All roads were kept in good repair, special attention being given to ditching and
cutting brush.
Construction.—On Marine Drive the diversion of 0.51 mile which was started last
year to by-pass the military area was completed. This section has a 20-foot mulch-cap
surface with 6-foot gravel shoulders. The surfacing has an 8-inch penetration crushed
rock base. Also on Marine Drive, from Mile 6.1 to Mile 7.3, the excessive camber
was reduced by building up the outer edges of the pavement with approximately 600
cubic yards of gravel and lean-mix mulch to a standard cross-section in preparation for
a mulch recap.
Snow-removal.—Ten miles of streets were kept open to traffic during snowfalls at
an average cost of $4.15 per mile.
Bridges.—Minor maintenance was all that was necessary.
New Westminster Electoral District.
The policy of permanent development of the townsite in D.L. 172 was continued;
2.32 miles of mulch surface were laid and 484 lineal feet of reinforced-concrete storm-
water sewers, 18 inches in diameter, were installed to replace open ditches. Shade-
trees were planted on the streets bounding the school reserve site.
Reconstruction programme was started on Ewen Avenue by the City of New
Westminster, with help from the Department.
Delta Electoral District.
All the work in this district consisted of maintenance and improvements to the
existing highways. One mile of mulch surface was recapped with mulch at Clayton
Hill on Trans-Canada Highway 2r, and 12.47 miles of Trans-Canada Highway 2r and
3R and the Ladner Trunk Road 68a were given a single spray-coat.
Improvements were made to the highway drainage at Aldergrove on Trans-Canada
Highway 3r and at Livingstone Hill on Pacific Highway 13R, which necessitated reconstruction of the subgrade, and pipe was purchased for an extension of the drains at
Langley Prairie to enable the road shoulders to be widened to the full width of the
right-of-way.
Numerous permanent culverts were installed in the highway drainage-ditches to
give access to private property, with the co-operation of the owners.
Tile drains were placed in the cut at Clayton Hill, on Trans-Canada Highway 2r.
The shoulders of the Ladner Trunk Road 68A were built up with gravel for a
distance of 4.9 miles, giving an additional width of from 6 to 10 feet to this section of
road. Shoulders on the Trans-Canada Highway 2r were trued up with gravel from
White House Corner to Fry's Corner, a distance of 7 miles.
Brush was cut on all highways and all grass on the road shoulders kept mowed.
This necessitated the continual use of the mowing-machines from May 1st to September
30th.
Traffic lines were painted on all the highways in this district and our equipment
painted the lines for all the rural municipalities in the district, the City of New Westminster, and Dewdney District. Shortage of labour is making this service to municipalities and other districts exceedingly difficult.
Bridge maintenance was carried out under great difficulty, due to lack of material,
and in some cases urgently needed repairs were not made or else patched up. However,
major repairs were made to Eburne Bridges Nos. 4 and 5, including new piling in the
protection piers, new dolphins, and major renewals and repairs to timber in the Howe
trusses.
A new cabin was provided for the bridge-tenders at Fraser Avenue Bridge and
improvements made to the house at Canoe Pass Bridge. 0 18 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
The heavy snowfall in January necessitated extensive snow-removal operations on
Pattullo Bridge and on all the roads leading into New Westminster. However, these
roads were all kept open and cleared of snow very soon after the storm ended.
The Cloverdale garage operated efficiently and took care of a great deal of equipment from outside districts during the year. Improvements were made to the yard
drainage and a paint-shop erected. The well was deepened and a new pump installed.
Proper sanitary installations were made.
The ferries were operated without any serious difficulties.
Chilliwack Electoral District.
All the roads in this district were maintained, ditches cleaned, grass and brush
kept cut and, in addition, several major improvements were made.
At Barton Ditch Bridge a diversion, 0.4 mile long, was made to improve alignment
approaching this bridge, which was reconstructed. This piece of road was built to
standard.
Four miles of Trans-Canada Highway 8R, west of Chilliwack, was shouldered with
gravel and a start was made in ditching and raising the bad snow section of Old
Trans-Provincial Highway 6lR with the assistance of the Sumas Dyking Commission.
Road surfacing consisted of flush-coating on the Trans-Canada, where 9.5 miles
were treated with a single spray and 0.7 mile with asphaltic mulch. Single spray
treatment was applied to the surface on 0.68 mile of the Columbia Valley Road and to
0.5 mile on the Abbotsford-Huntingdon Road.
An attempt was made to maintain all of the bridges, but extreme difficulty was
encountered due to the lack of materials. Some bridges are now getting badly in need
of urgent repairs and renewals. Considerable repairs were made to Vedder Canal
Bridge and a survey and plan prepared for this and other old bridges to enable Headquarters to plan their replacement by permanent structures.
Barton Ditch Bridge and Dumville Creek Bridge were replaced by modern concrete deck structures, the first on a creosoted substructure and the second on steel
girders.
Heavy snowfall in January caused some interruption of traffic, but the present
equipment, together with rented bulldozers, enabled us to keep all the main arteries
open and to assist the municipalities in opening up their side-roads. The snow-fences
in use proved helpful, but more are needed; also more brush-cutting. The light truck-
ploughs did not prove satisfactory for heavy work, but were very good early in the
storm and to follow up after the heavy drifts were broken.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 4 (YALE, KAMLOOPS, SALMON ARM, REVELSTOKE, NORTH AND SOUTH OKANAGAN, AND SIMILKAMEEN ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, W. Ramsay, Kamloops.
Kamloops Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Roads: Regular grading and maintenance work was carried out on
most of the roads, including all of the main heavy travelled roads. In addition to
maintenance, some attention was paid to minor improvements, such as widening curves
to obtain better visibility and reduce hazard, but most of the work done consisted of
culvert repairs and replacement, drainage and ditching, and gravelling. Tax-work as
far as available was used to supplement expenditures from funds in District Vote.
Bridges: Although handicapped to considerable extent by delay in having orders
for lumber filled, a general programme of essential maintenance was carried out.
Ferries:   Ferry operation was satisfactorily maintained throughout the year. DISTRICT REPORTS. O 19
Construction and Reconstruction.—Roads: One-half mile of road was built as a
cut-off on Monte Creek Road, average width 18 feet. On the Sandhill Road 1% miles
were reconstructed on relocation as standard 24-foot roadway to improve alignment and
grades.
Bridges: Bridge No. 57 was replaced with a 30-foot stringer structure and Bridge
No. 125 with a 26-foot stringer structure. One new 30-foot stringer structure was
built, Fight Creek No. 2, necessitated by Fight Creek having changed its channel on
account of high water.
Ferries: A new carrier cage was provided for Vinsulla Ferry; also carrier cage
and current boards built for McLure Ferry. Vavenby Ferry aprons, pontoons, and
carrier were replaced, and, in addition, the ferryman's house was enlarged and renovated.    A new flat-bottomed boat was also provided for this ferry.
Surfacing.—Gravel: Seven miles of road were gravelled; % mile of this being
new gravel and 6y2 miles major renewal.
Bituminous: The Trans-Canada Highway was mulched to a width of 18 feet for
a distance of 4 miles between Mileages 262.65 and 266.65. Patching as required was
done on the Trans-Canada, Kamloops-Tete Jaune, Kamloops-Tranquille, and Kamloops
Airport Roads.
Snow-removal.—A total of 3,114 snow-plough miles was travelled by our ploughs
in order to keep open 442 miles of main and secondary highways. An exceptionally
severe winter was experienced, making conditions difficult to contend with, the cost per
mile kept open averaging $16.02. There was very little interruption to the movement
of traffic, in spite of the fact that at times all available equipment was heavily taxed to
maintain plough service.
Yale Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Reconstruction.—The principal work undertaken
throughout the year included the reconstruction of the approaches to Hope Bridge,
reconstruction and widening on the Trans-Canada Highway in the Fraser Canyon and
east of Lytton, also reconstruction-work on the Kamloops Road and Merritt-Princeton
Road. Harvey Bridge was replaced with a culvert and fill and new construction-
work was undertaken on the Hope-Princeton Road in conjunction with the Dominion
Government.
Bituminous Surfacing.—In the year under review 0.70 mile of mulch was laid at
Silver Creek, Mile 98, Trans-Canada Highway; 11.41 miles of flush-coat was put down
on the Trans-Canada Highway under favourable conditions and has proved very satisfactory, coming through the hard winter satisfactorily with little damage.
Maintenance.—Roads throughout the district were satisfactorily maintained and
kept in a good state of repair throughout the year. Some slides occurred on the
Trans-Canada Highway in the Fraser Canyon and on the Thompson River section,
which were removed as soon as possible.
Bridges.—All bridges were maintained in a satisfactory condition, but some difficulty was encountered in obtaining dimension timber for repairs or reconstruction.
Snow-removal.—An exceptionally heavy snowfall during the winter necessitated
the full and continuous use of departmental snow-removal equipment, and in the Merritt area snow-removal was being undertaken until March 25th. The removal of snow
to the edges and over the sides of the road was found to be profitable, as in the subsequent spring break-up the roads returned to normal much quicker and with less damage
than ordinarily.
Ferries.—The Boston Bar-North Bend aerial ferry operated throughout the year,
but with reduced patronage, due to general traffic restriction. O 20 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
No Sunday service was given during the past fiscal year, but many special trips
were run to provide accommodation for social and public affairs between North Bend
and Boston Bar.
Salmon Arm Electoral District.
Roads.—No new construction was undertaken. The rock-cut at Mile 341.4 on
the Trans-Canada Highway, 4 miles west of Salmon, Arm, was widened to 32 feet and
additions were made to the dry rock retaining-wall adjacent to same on the C.P.R.
right-of-way, this wall being now about 500 feet long and in places 20 feet high.
On the Blind Bay-Eagle Bay Road No. 30 many narrow rock points were widened
and the whole road generally improved.
On the Tappen-Skimiken Road No. 18 about 5 miles were reshaped, ditched, and
well gravelled.
The Chase-Loakin Creek Road No. 99 was widened for a distance of about 5 miles
and a ^-mile stretch subject to flooding by beaver-dams was rebuilt on higher ground.
A %-mile section of the Kamloops-Shuswap Road (N) No. Ill, about 2 miles east
of Pritchard, was relocated to eliminate a very steep grade.
About 6,000 cubic yards of gravel were crushed and stock-piled in the Palmer Pit,
3 miles west of Salmon Arm.
Surfacing.—From Mile 343.4 to Mile 345.6 on the Trans-Canada Highway west of
Salmon Arm was recapped, and one block of Alexander Avenue (37R) was widened with
a 2-inch mulch surface between the cement concrete pavement and the curb on the
north side.
Bridges.—Three pile trestles (Nos. 88, 96, and 97) on the Chase-Falkland Road
were built to replace log spans carried away by flood in May. Haines Bridge No. 21,
over the Salmon River, was redecked. Other bridges had minor repairs carried out on
them.
Ferries.—The Sorrento-Scotch Creek Ferry was tied up on account of ice conditions from January 31st to April 19th.
Sicamous Ferry, which now operates as a free ferry, but which prior to June 28th
was operated as a toll ferry, was tied up for the season on December 15th.
Shuswap Lake Ferry for which a charter was granted to Captain Frank Smith, of
Sicamous, in December, 1941, to operate between Salmon Arm, Sicamous, and Seymour
Arm, operated without interruption till January 22nd, after which, due to ice conditions, the boat was able to go only as far as the Narrows, from which point freight was
taken in over the ice.
Buildings.—An equipment-shed, 28 by 48 feet, was built at Falkland. This shed
was built mostly with second-hand lumber salvaged from a large barn which stood on
the property.    A 500-gallon gasoline storage-tank and pump were installed in this shed.
A start was made in November on a residence for the Provincial Police, the building being situated on the Court-house grounds at Salmon Arm.
Trails.—About 20 miles of the Cotton Belt Mine Trail No. 201 at Seymour Arm of
Shuswap Lake were brushed out and a 60-foot log span was placed over Seymour Creek;
the cost of this work being shared equally by the Departments of Public Works, Mines,
and Lands.
Surveys.—A survey was made for reconstruction of the Sand Hill Road No. 145
with a view to eventually making it a link in the road between Kamloops and Vernon.
A survey was also made for a revision of part of the Trans-Canada Highway (37r)
through the City of Salmon Arm to eliminate two right-angle turns and a bad traffic
bottleneck.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was exceptionally heavy throughout the whole district and snow-ploughing was continuous from December 2nd to February 15th. Our
machines travelled some 9,229 miles to keep 284.85 miles of road open. DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 21
The very cold weather in January, when the temperature ranged from 10° to 35°
below for about two weeks, added considerably to our snow-ploughing problems. However, the two main roads, the Kamloops-Salmon Arm and the Kamloops-Vernon Roads,
were open to traffic without interruption all season.
Revelstoke Electoral District.
Maintenance of Roads.—Regular gradings and general maintenance on all main,
trunk, and local roads was carried out during the year. A number of culverts was
renewed and considerable ditching was done, especially on the Big Bend Highway.
Snow'-removal.—Main roads were all ploughed of snow and kept open to traffic,
with the exception of the Big Bend Highway. The snowfall for the season was exceptionally heavy.
Maintenance of Bridges.—Necessary repairs were carried out to all bridges. A
new deck was laid on the Columbia River Bridge at Revelstoke.
Ferries.—Ferries operated satisfactorily throughout the year. Repairs to south
approach of Twelve-mile Ferry were completed. New aprons were installed on Twenty-
four-mile ferry.
North Okanagan Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and tributary
roads. Ditches were improved and shoulders cleared of weeds; a number of culverts
were renewed, and gravelling and weed-cutting were earried out by tax-workers.
Surfacing.—Three and one-quarter miles of asphalt mulch surfacing were completed on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Construction.—One-half mile of heavy construction on the Okanagan Highway was
commenced and considerable progress made. One-half mile on the Vernon-Edgewood
Road was rebuilt on new alignment and grade. Considerable damage was done by
storms and flood, necessitating the reshaping and gravelling of many parts of the roads.
Creek channels were cleared of log-jams and debris, and some cribbing was constructed
for bridge-protection.
A large amount of rock was placed along the shore of Woods Lake to stop erosion
caused by wave action.
Bridges.—Essential repairs were made on several bridges, and six were rebuilt,
the largest being at Enderby, consisting of one 130-foot Howe truss with standard
trestle approaches.
Snow-removal.—Owing to the exceptionally severe winter, snow-removal was very
heavy, and the available equipment was taxed to the utmost. All roads were kept open,
with the exception of the Monashee Road. ,
South Okanagan Electoral District.
Roads.—Okanagan Highway: A diversion of % mile was made between Westbank
and Powers Creek, which eliminated several dangerous curves. The work was heavy,
involving the excavation of some 25,000 cubic yards of material, principally gravel.
McCulloch Road: Near McCulloch 2 miles were reconstructed and an additional 2
miles gravelled. Another 2 miles were gravelled near Hydraulic Creek. Additional
width of right-of-way was cleared for a distance of 5 miles and numerous culverts
installed and ditches made.
The following bituminous surfacing was carried out: 2.31 miles new mulch; 0.40
mile mulch renewed; 0.46 mile double spray-coat renewed; and 1.65 miles single spray-
coat on double spray-coat surface.
All roads were maintained in good condition and many minor improvements made.
Snowfall was above average and snow-removal equipment was employed almost
continuously throughout the winter. Ice conditions were worse than usual and a great
deal of sanding was necessary. O 22 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
Bridges.—Two new bridges were built—Powers Creek No. 2 near Westbank and
Camp Creek No. 5 at Naramata. The former is a 50-foot I-beam span on timber bents
and nine spans trestle approaches, all timber below the deck being creosoted. All bents
are on concrete piers. Camp Creek No. 5 replaces a culvert and fill washed out by the
severe floods in May, 1942, and consists of a standard frame trestle 133 feet in length.
Powers Creek No. 1 Bridge was renewed and three small bridges were redecked.
Sundry repairs were made to other bridges.
Ferries.—M.S. " Pendozi" operated throughout the year on what was formerly the
winter schedule, as the decreased traffic did not warrant a change to the summer
schedule. The schedule was maintained without interruption except for an occasional
slight delay owing to ice conditions last winter.
Flood-damage.—Extremely high water in both Okanagan Lake and tributary
streams caused considerable damage to roads and bridges, but all roads were kept open
with very little delay to traffic.
Similkameen Electoral District.
Roads.—In addition to general maintenance of all roads throughout the district we
were under the necessity of opening an old road 3V_ miles to Black's coal-mine.
Floods were general in this district in April and May, 1942, causing extensive
damage to roads and bridges. Sludge deposits from the mill at the Morning Star mine,
west of Oliver, were washed away and completely destroyed 1% miles of the Oliver-
Cawston Road and also caused considerable damage to the highway south of Oliver and
to intervening side-roads. Mclntyre Creek overflowed and destroyed the new highway
bridge across the creek as well as 250 feet of highway. Ellis and Penticton Creeks in
Penticton went on the rampage and washed out the highway in several places and
destroyed the bridge across Ellis Creek.
The floods were general and we were put to considerable trouble and expense to
protect the Penticton-Summerland section of the Okanagan Highway. This protection
included riprapping and the building of about 700 feet of concrete retaining-wall.
On Hedley-20-mile Road 400 lineal feet of timber cribbing were rebuilt.
Sidewalks.—Timber sidewalks in Princeton were kept repaired, 425 lineal feet of
which were replacements with 3- by 9-inch retainers and fill. About 200 feet of new
walk were constructed in Oliver.
Bridges.—Several bridges which had been either destroyed or damaged were
rebuilt or repaired and others were redecked. Five small bridges were replaced by
reinforced concrete culvert-pipe.
A new trestle bridge was built across Mclntyre Creek on piles, one 50-foot span
and two 20-foot spans, to replace the bridge destroyed by flood.
Twenty miles south of Penticton the road was realigned and a pile-trestle bridge
was built up-stream on the new site and the old bridge dismantled.
Snow-ploughing.—All highways were kept ploughed during the winter. Some
damage was done 6 miles east of Princeton where an ice-jam diverted the water over 2
miles of highway. The road was closed and all traffic detoured through the two adjoining ranches for over two months during the winter.
A start was made clearing the ground for a new Government garage at Princeton,
on ground leased from the Great Northern Railway Company.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 5  (CRANBROOK, FERNIE, AND
COLUMBIA ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Cranbrook Electoral District.
Highways.—Construction was carried out on the Waldo-Newgate Road, south of
Waldo, on the west side of the Kootenay River. Four miles of road were constructed
on a new location and six miles of existing road reconditioned. ■

Okanagan Highway, Vernon-Kelowna Section.    Looking north from
9 miles south of Vernon.  DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 23
A double flush sidewalk, 6 feet wide and 3,600 feet long, was constructed between
Kimberley and the Village of Chapman Camp to eliminate the danger to pedestrians
using the highway.
Bridges.—Two bridges were reconstructed and two were renewed by eliminating
King trusses and substituting bents and heavier stringers to carry the heavy loads
imposed by logging operations.  Thirty bridges were repaired and generally maintained.
Snow-removal.—Severe winter conditions, with exceptionally heavy snowfalls,
especially during the months of January and February, taxed our snow-removal facilities. Truck-ploughs were unable to cope with the drifted snow and tractors had to
be used.
Two hundred and forty-two miles of roads were kept open at an average cost of
per mi  . Fernie Electoral District.
General Maintenance.—All travelled roads in the district were maintained. The
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway between Elko and Fernie required considerable
attention; several old culverts were replaced and minor slides removed. Rock is continually falling on this section.
Bridges.—No new bridges were constructed, but Dixon Bridge, over Hosmer
Slough, was lengthened, as also was Lizard Creek Bridge. The old bridge over the
Elk, at Michel Prairie, required extensive repairs. Some smaller bridges were redecked
and minor repairs made to several others.
Flood-damage.—Flood-damage on the Crowsnest section of the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway was quite heavy, resulting in numerous slides and washouts, which
were attended to. The rock wall at Crowsnest subsided slightly, but now appears to be
stabilized. Considerable erosion along the banks of Michel Creek and the Elk River
was observed. A new channel for Michel Creek, above Natal, was constructed and the
stream diverted in the late fall. This work is practically complete, but the excavated
materials require further ironing out this year.
Surfacing.—Considerable damage to the surface between Fernie and Natal resulted
from frost. Several bad sections have been removed and back-filled; 4.6 miles of this
surface were seal-coated.
Snow-removal.—Total snowfall in the district for the year was approximately 18
feet; total snow-plough miles, 7,329. A rotary plough, which proved to be very effective in drifting snow, was added to the equipment during the year.
Columbia Electoral District.
The work during the spring of 1942 in the Columbia District was confined mostly
to gravelling and grading. A considerable amount of heaving and frost-boils made
the highways almost impassable and the gravelling in some cases had to be extremely
heavy to carry the traffic. Traffic over both the Big Bend and Golden-Leanchoil sections of the Trans-Canada Highway was extremely light during the tourist season of
1942.
The Kootenay-Columbia Road leading south to Radium Hot Springs held its surface well during the year. This was due to a large extent to the almost continuous wet
season which allowed the graders to work almost at any time. South of Radium Hot
Springs the Kootenay-Columbia Highway is paved to the U.S. boundary-line at Kings-
gate. The portion of this pavement in the Columbia District is standing up very well
indeed and very little maintenance is required on this section.
Besides the maintenance-work, two small reconstruction projects were carried out
during 1942. One mile east of Golden on the Golden-Leanchoil Road, a long, high crib
on the upper side of the road had been taken out during the end of the fiscal year
1941-42;   this left a lot of overhanging material which was taken down and removed O 24 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
with the shovel and trucks and the road widened to standard width; over 12,000 yards
of material were moved in this work.
The other reconstruction-work was carried out for the Mines Department and
consisted of widening and gravelling the road to the Penrose mine, a distance of 3 miles.
The usual maintenance-work was done on the bridges throughout the district.
The winter of 1942-43 was extremely cold with deep snow throughout the Columbia
District. The main highways, with the exception of the Big Bend Road to Revelstoke,
were kept open all winter. A considerable amount of snow-ploughing was also done
on the side-roads.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 5a (NELSON-CRESTON, GRAND FORKS-
GREENWOOD, KASLO-SLOCAN, AND ROSSLAND-TRAIL ELECTORAL
DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, E. Smith, Nelson.
Nelson-Creston Electoral District.
Roads.—Very little major reconstruction was carried out during the year and that
only on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway and the Emerald Mine Road.
On the Nelson-Castlegar section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway work
was continued on the Taghum Hill. Except for some minor details, all that remains
to be done to complete this job is gravelling with crushed rock and asphaltic surfacing.
The only other section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway on which any
reconstruction was done was on the Creston-Goatfell section between Arrow Creek and
the Goat River. Here a l^-yard drag-line was employed on widening and realignment;   this work was not completed owing to weather conditions.
A considerable amount of work was done on the Emerald Mine Road to assist the
Wartime Metals tungsten project. A 1.5-mile diversion was constructed to improve
the gradient. The entire length of the road, 5 miles, was gravelled to a width of 12
feet. The expenditure on this work was shared between the Provincial Government
and the Dominion Government.
In the Creston area a gravelling programme was carried out by taking advantage
of farmers working out tax accounts, their trucks being employed for this purpose.
A 3.1-mile section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Kitchener was
given a 6-inch coat of gravel, 24 feet in width.
A 1-mile section of the Nelson-Nelway Highway south of Sheep Creek was gravelled, and the bad condition which has existed here for some time has been eliminated.
In late March and early April great damage was caused to our roads by alternate
thawing and freezing, lasting for four weeks with temperatures of 50° during the
middle of the day and frequently sub-zero temperature at night. During this period
large windrows of snow were still lining the roads, creating an ideal condition for
infiltration in the daytime and freezing the subgrade at night. In early May continued
heavy rains caused many troublesome washouts on the Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway, the Nelson-Nelway Highway, and the Pend d'Oreille Road.
Bituminous Surfacing.—There was no major bituminous surfacing done in the
district during the year. Frost-damage was made good by patching with pre-mix and
with respraying.
Snow-removal.—This district experienced the worst winter in twenty years, as
regards both depth of snow and low temperatures. In the long January storm high
winds and temperatures as low as 30° below zero occurred, with the result that truck-
ploughs became useless and only tractors were effective. However, very few disruptions of traffic occurred, due to the untiring efforts of the general foremen, operators,
and an efficient mechanical staff.
Bridges.—No major bridges were constructed or reconstructed during the year. DISTRICT REPORTS. O 25
Flood-damage was caused to two bridges in May—namely, 56 Creston-Gray Creek
No. 8 and 45 Creston-Goatfell No. 5, which necessitated emergency repairs. Traffic
over these bridges was not stopped, however.
Work on all other bridges consisted of ordinary maintenance.
River-bank Protection.—Channel correction and bank-protection was carried out
on the Goat River above the Creston-Porthill Bridge No. 1 with good results.
Ferries.—The four power-cable ferries operated successfully and efficiently
throughout the year, with the exception of short intervals at West Creston and Nicks
Island, when the Kootenay River ice was too heavy.
During March the water-level of Kootenay Lake fell to such an extent that it
became necessary to remove a section of sand-bar at Harrop to enable the Harrop-
Longbeach Ferry to carry on; this was done by operating a hoist and drag-line scraper
from the anchored ferry, while the ferry service was suspended daily from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m.
The low water also made it necessary to extend the rock-fills at both Nelson- ferry-
landings in March. In both these operations the West Kootenay Power & Light
Company extended very welcome co-operation.
Very acceptable co-operation was extended by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's officials during this period.
Grand Forks-Greenwood Electoral District.
Roads.—On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway between Grand Forks and
Cascade a number of low sections of the road were raised by filling with suitable
material preparatory to surfacing with crushed gravel and finally with asphalt.
The Que Ken rock-crusher was brought in and erected in the autumn, but severe
weather made operation impossible until spring.
During May heavy and continuous rains caused much damage on the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway in the Rock Creek Canyons, at Rock Creek village, and east
of Grand Forks near the C.P.R. bridge, and on local roads. Damage also was sustained
on the Rock Creek-Beaverdell Road and on the North Fork Road.
The Kettle River attained an unprecedented high-water level which was sustained
for a considerable period.
In the Rock Creek Canyons the highway was restored by rock excavation and
filling to replace three large cribbings which were washed out. East of Grand Forks,
where a large rock retaining-wall was destroyed by the river, the highway was restored
by a heavy rock-fill, obtained by excavating the rock on the line of the proposed diversion to eliminate the level railway crossing immediately adjacent to the damaged
section.
Bridges.—A new King truss was constructed of local timber at 30-Mile on the
North Fork of the Kettle River to replace the old truss which was broken by driftwood
in the May freshet. A small new bridge was also constructed over the South Fork of
Rock Creek to replace the old bridge which was damaged by the May freshet. Repairs
were made on many bridges throughout the district and rock-filled cribbings were
constructed at the Rock Creek Bridge on the West Fork of the Kettle River and on the
main river below Cascade.
Bituminous Surfacing.—No major surfacing work was done, but several sections
between Grand Forks and Cascade were repaired by the application of fine clean gravel
and a double spray-coat of asphalt.
Snow-removal.—The Rossland-Cascade section of the Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway was closed in December, which aided greatly in keeping open the remainder
of the highway from Christina Lake to Osoyoos. Snowfall was somewhat heavier than
normal but continuous traffic was maintained, except for a few short intervals when
drifting occurred on the high levels in the vicinity of Bridesville. 0 26 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
Kaslo-Slocan Electoral District.
Roads.—Only one major project was undertaken during the year, this being the
conversion of the Lardeau-Gerrard railway from railway to highway. This work,
covering the full length of the railway, 33 miles, was done in a remarkably short time,
and was opened for vehicular traffic two months from the date of commencement.
Much credit is due to the General Foreman and his construction foreman for the
efficient manner in which this work was organized and brought to a speedy and successful conclusion. This section of road has the distinction of being the longest section of
road in the Province with a maximum gradient of 1 per cent.
The great mileage of gravel roads in this district was well maintained in spite of
a great deal of frost-damage.
Bridges.—No new bridges were constructed during the year. Fifty bridges were
repaired, and some repairs were of a major character. Eight trestle bridges in the
Arrow Park District were replaced by culverts and fills.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was the heaviest in twenty years and much difficulty was encountered in keeping main roads open for traffic.
Ferries.—The two ferries at Needles and East Arrow Park operated efficiently
and continuously, except for a short period when heavy ice prevented operation at East
Arrow Park.
Rossland-Trail Electoral District.
Roads.—Owing to the Shavers Bench Road, East Trail, being destroyed by cloudburst, a road was constructed following the Lawley Creek ravine and ascending the
short south slope of Shavers Bench, thus giving permanent access to the community
on the Bench; this new road is % mile in length and is in a location where the sub-
grade is of stable material and there is no danger of destruction by cloudburst.
Considerable difficulty was experienced in maintaining continuity of traffic in the
vicinity of Trail during May, June, and July by reason of heavy and continuous rains
in May and June and the worst cloudburst in the history of Trail on July 28th, when
all roads in the Trail area were blocked for some hours. At this time much damage
was occasioned to both public and private property by water and the enormous quantity
of unstable silt brought down from the surrounding hills.
On the Pend d'Oreille Road seven cribbings were taken out by the storms and
were renewed.
Bridges.—No new bridges were constructed during the year. The steel bridge
spanning the Columbia River at Trail was thoroughly cleaned by sand-blast and painted
with the standard three coats. Soundings made at this bridge showed no serious
erosion or alteration of channel.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was much heavier than normal and difficulty was met in
maintaining continuous traffic by reason of high velocity winds causing drifting, but
no serious break occurred, thanks to the unremitting efforts of the foremen and plough
operators, who all fully realized the vital necessity of keeping the roads open for the
transportation of workers to the great war industry at Trail.
It was decided not to attempt to keep open the Rossland-Cascade section of the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway through the winter months and it remained closed
from December 15th until late March, which was of considerable benefit to the road by
materially reducing maintenance and restoration costs in the spring.
Ferries.—The Castlegar Cable Ferry crossing the Columbia River operated continuously and efficiently for the full year, service being suspended only for short periods
when cable replacement or motor overhaul was necessary. Relocation, Malahat Drive, Island Highway.

ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 6 (LILLOOET AND CARIBOO
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, 0. P. Roberts, Williams Lake.
Lillooet Electoral District.
General.—Maintenance-work was carried out on all roads throughout the year.
Cloudburst caused considerable damage on the Lytton-Lillooet and Bridge River Roads,
closing them to traffic for a day or so.
Construction or Reconstruction.—No major work was undertaken. Minor betterments were carried out on the Big Bar-High Bar, Big Bar, North Bonaparte, Lytton-
Lillooet, and Loon Lake Roads.
Bridges.—Major renewal construction included Gun Creek Bridge, 90-foot Howe
through truss with creosoted cords and 71 feet of trestle approach, and Tyaughton
Creek, 60-foot King truss with 119 feet 6 inches of trestle approach; both structures
of 15-ton standard design. Both these structures are on the Bridge River Road. Six
other minor structures were replaced and general maintenance was carried out on
thirty-one bridges throughout the district.
Ferries.-—The usual maintenance was carried out and the standard 5-ton reaction
type ferry at Lytton was completed and put into service; 200 feet of plank approaching
were anchored to the new ramp and river-bed. The 5-ton ferry at Big Bar was replaced
with standard pontoons and a new superstructure utilizing the ironwork from the old
structure. A new rowboat was supplied to the Pavilion to replace the old one used for
ferrying passengers and supplies at this crossing.
Flood-damage.—Damage was confined mostly to the following roads, due to heavy
cloudbursts: Lytton-Lillooet Road was blocked to traffic for two days at Miles 25-30
by a heavy slide of rock which required the use of a bulldozer and power-grader to clean
up. Bridge River Road at Alexander Creek was blocked with a heavy clay wash which
necessitated the relocation of both the road and bridge. Considerable difficulty was
encountered in keeping the traffic moving over a temporary diversion. At Squamish,
flood-protection consisted of the raising and widening of Pemberton Avenue dyke.
This dyke was also ditched into Fuller Slough. The Squamish Valley road-bed was
raised at Carson Ranch; Schoonover dyke was raised and enlarged. At Pemberton,
brush and rock bank-protection was carried out and the road-bed raised in places.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was much heavier than the previous year; 445 miles
were kept open at an average cost of $17.02 per mile and a total of 3,863 snow-plough
miles.
North Cariboo Electoral District.
General Maintenance and Minor Betterments.—General maintenance was carried
out on all trunk and main roads throughout the district.
No major projects were undertaken, but Alexandria Diversion, started last year,
was completed and gravelled.    This diversion is a great improvement on the old road.
The diversion at 6-Mile on Barkerville Road was completed, brought up to grade,
and gravelled.
Again farmers worked out their taxes and some good work was done on some of
the farm roads.
Ferries.—A new 10-ton reaction ferry was built in Quesnel yard and floated to
Soda Creek. The Alexandria ferry-towers were renewed. General maintenance was
carried out on the four ferries.
Bridges.—A 300-foot pile trestle was built on the Alexandria project and all other
bridges in the district maintained.
Snow-removal.—This winter was much more severe than the last few years and a
heavier snowfall.    The main roads were ploughed and kept open. 0 28 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
General.—Considerable trouble was encountered throughout the year in securing
operators and labourers.
South Cariboo Electoral District.
Maintenance.—All roads were adequately maintained during the year. While
light traffic showed a marked decrease, heavy trucking developed strongly, requiring
greater attention to surface grading and gravelling. This was particularly so on
side-roads which previously carried farm traffic only.
Construction and Reconstruction.—Little work was undertaken in the way of
minor betterments and reconstruction generally, as all available men and equipment
were concentrated on improvements to the Chilcotin Road between Miles 100 and 180,
the whole of which was conditioned for heavy trucking. More than 20 miles of new
construction were included in this programme; 247 lineal feet of 15-ton standard pile
trestles were built;  100 feet of stringer bridges;   and other necessary incidental work.
Bridges.—In addition to the bridging before mentioned, the Beaver Lake Bridge
was replaced by 152 feet of pile trestle and the Dhward Bridge by 76 lineal feet of
similar construction.    All other necessary maintenance repairs were carried out.
Snow-removal.—After three years of comparatively light snowfall, one of the
severest winters in history was experienced. From early November the temperature
dropped to zero and remained so until the following March. At Redstone 70° below
zero was registered. Snowfall was heavy with continual drifting and strained equipment to the utmost.    Removal costs reached an average of $17 a mile.
Buildings.—All buildings and grounds were maintained. The garage and workshop at Williams Lake were destroyed by fire.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 7  (PRINCE RUPERT, ATLIN,
AND SKEENA ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, J. C. Brady, Prince Rupert.
Skeena Electoral District.
Labour.—As in last year's report, the labour shortage is acute. War-work of
various kinds has taken many men from the district.
Highway Maintenance.—All roads throughout the district were maintained during
the year. Settlers working out taxes were instrumental in gravelling and clearing
numerous farm and settlement roads. A total of 9,333 cubic yards of gravel was
spread by maintenance crews.
Highway-construction.—A contract for 4 miles on Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway No. 16 from Mile 125.8 to Mile 129.77 was completed during the year.
A reconstruction project at Mile 224.5 was uncompleted as a new bridge was part
of the scheme and the Department was unable to secure necessary materials for its
construction.    This project was 95 per cent, completed at March 31st, 1943.
Widening and improving 8 miles of No. 43 Kalum Lake Road and 2 miles of No. 52
Lakelse Lake Road were carried out.
Mining Roads and Trails.—In carrying out further improvements on No. 244 Red
Rose Mine Road the Dominion and Provincial Governments and the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company shared equally in developing the road to this tungsten mine.
This road is 11 miles long.     Departmental equipment was used.
Assistance was given in developing three other mining-trails during the year.
Bridges.—High water in the Bulkley River in May carried away one pier and one
140-foot Howe-truss span of the Hazelton Bridge No. 51. The iron of part of this span
was salvaged. The balance of the bridge was demolished and dismantled. The iron
salvaged and as much of the timber as was worth saving were kept for culvert and
other repairs. DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 29
One end of the Copper Ferry Bridge was undermined and a longer span was put in.
Corlette Bridges Nos. 12-1-2-3 were in need of repair as they were on the road to
training areas near Terrace. The necessary repairs were carried out in conjunction
with the army; this Department providing the materials and the army supplying the
labour.
Glacier Creek Bridge No. 42, north of Terrace, was rebuilt with peeled spruce log
stringers and plank decking.
Glacier Creek Bridge No. 44, consisting of four approach-spans of pile-trestle
bridge and one 60-foot King truss, was almost completed.
Repairs were carried out on sixty-six other bridges.
Ferries.—All ferries were maintained throughout the year. Owing to the rush of
business following construction of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway No. 16 a
twenty-four-hour service was maintained on the Cedarvale Ferry No. 78 for about
three months.
New pontoons for the Hazelton Ferry No. 80 were completed and the exterior of
the ferry-house was painted.
New towers were erected for the Kitwanga Ferry No. 81 and the main cable was
put back into place.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was general throughout the district and 270% miles were
kept open for a total of 2,561 snow-plough miles.
Prince Rupert Electoral District.
Prince Rupert and Vicinity.—Maintenance of the highway from Prince Rupert city
limits to Prudhomme Lake was kept up. Heavy military traffic increased the ordinary
wear and tear on the surface to a degree never before experienced. The road, however,
is standing up well.
On Cow Bay Road No. 5 bituminous mulch surface has been kept well patched as
holes developed, although continuous wet weather has made this work difficult,
i Dodge Cove Road No. 66 has been kept in good shape.    A washout was repaired
and ditches cleaned.
Jap Inlet sidewalks and trails are in good condition.    No work was necessary.
Smith Island sidewalks required no work this year.
Oona River roads and sidewalks were kept in good shape. About 250 lineal feet of
sidewalk were relaid.
Bridges.—Galloway Rapids Bridge No. 68 has been kept in repair as far as was
possible, although material was scarce and hard to get.
McBride Street Foot-bridge No. 18 is in good repair. No work was needed this
year.    Brush was removed from both sides.
Wharves.—Arrangements were made to rent the westerly part of Prince Rupert
Wharf up to and including the freight-shed to the Department of National Defence,
Naval Service; in consequence of which Canadian Pacific ships after August 1st, 1942,
moved to the Canadian National dock and no further dockage or freight business was
handled by our Department and the services of wharfinger and checker were done
away with.
The rest of the wharf has been kept repaired. On the wharf buildings, considerable strengthening was done to No. 1 Shed. General maintenance was carried out on
Sheds Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 during the year. No. 5 Shed had repairs to ceiling made
and leaks stopped around chimney.    Winch-house was repaired.
On Cow Bay Floats repairs were made as required. New float logs are on hand,
also ties and iron for floats around crib dolphin, but so far we have not been able to get
the necessary decking. New chains and cable have been added to tie these floats, and
new rail was placed around creosote piling.
Buildings and Grounds.—Court-house Grounds: The unusually long and severe
winter has had bad results.    Military units have been using the grounds for storage O 80 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
and checking on many thousand units of equipment since last fall and the edges of the
lawns have been somewhat cut up by being run over by these heavy equipment units.
Assay Office Building: A contract was let for the alteration of this building to
make it suitable for an assay plant and also for a dwelling above the plant. The contract is not quite completed owing to delay in obtaining material. A portion of this
building was rented to the R.C.A.F. for storage purposes. The grounds were levelled
up with loose rock at bottom and soil on top, requiring about 200 cubic yards.
Plant and Equipment.—A rock-crusher Q-17-E was sent here from the Peace River
District to replace the old crusher Q-12 which has been scrapped. A new engine was
put in unit S-428.
Snowfall.—The winter of 1942-43 has been one of the worst experienced in Prince
Rupert and vicinity for many years for continuous cold. About 18 inches of snow fell
at one time and about 1 foot at another, necessitating two ploughings. Twelve miles
were kept open, making 96 snow-plough miles.
Queen Charlotte Islands (South End).—The contract let the previous year to reconstruct the Port Clements-Tlell Road No. 18 from Mile 0.68 to Mile 6.1 was carried on;
the work ceasing altogether in September, 1942, with about 3 miles done. There is a
great deal of work to be done yet to make the road fit for modern traffic between Port
Clements and Tlell. The maintenance was heavy and the planks had to be sanded
during icy weather.
Skidegate-Tlell Road No. 24: Near Mile 15 further work was done to prevent
inroads of the sea by putting in fifty-nine posts and filling between with trees and brush
to hold the drift-sand. The new diversion at Mile 21.5 was commenced, necessitated
by the sea cutting into the road at this point. Only a small portion of the clearing was
accomplished before March 31st, 1943, so the major part of this diversion, which is %
mile long, has yet to be done. Winter storms caused extra maintenance on this road in
the clearing of debris and fallen trees; 239 cubic yards of gravel were hauled to fill
holes.
Skidegate-Queen Charlotte City Road No. 25: Although this road still requires
widening in many places in solid rock, we could do no more this year than keep it maintained ; 205 cubic yards of gravel being hauled for this purpose.
No. 8: Part of the proposed road from Port Clements to Masset. In order to provide an outlet for settlers on Kumdis Island to Port Clements, this end of the proposed
road was to be built first as funds became available. Consequently, during the last few
years, some clearing of right-of-way has been done from a point about 4% miles north
of the north-west corner of Lot 416, where the present road from Port Clements ends,
to about 2 miles of this road-ending. This 2 miles has to be cleared and the grading
done before Kumdis Island settlers can drive to Port Clements.
Bridges.—A careful inspection was made of all the bridges on Queen Charlotte
Islands, with a view to ascertaining their approximate capacities and their condition
for the heavier and more extensive traffic now in evidence on the islands. Quite a
number of repairs were made.
The new bridge at Miller Creek was partly built, but work had to stop on account
of high water in the creek and high winter tides backing up from the sea. It will be
resumed as soon as the water returns to normal.
Tlell Bridge No. 50 was threatened with ice-jams, but excessive damage was prevented and some repairs had to be made.
Queen Charlotte Islands (North End).—No new work was undertaken but extensive repairs were required to the present roads between Old Masset and New Masset
and out to the clam-digging beaches near Tow Hill.
An ocean storm damaged about 500 feet of the Masset-Tow Hill Road at Mileage
15.    This section is subject to inroads of the sea.    The clam industry now warrants DISTRICT REPORTS. O 31
our changing the road here to a location made some years ago, which would be on safe
ground away from the sea.
Bridges.—Repairs were made to Sangan River Bridge and Chown Slough Bridge,
which are both due for renewal, and surveys have been authorized for this purpose.
Atlin Electoral District.
South Atlin.
Highxoays.—Salmon River Road No. 66: General maintenance-work. Ditches
were cleaned, grading and gravelling done, and a dry wall constructed. Ditches, 155
yards;  gravelling, 119 cubic yards; dry wall, 13 cubic yards.
Dolly Varden Railway No. 84: Work here consisted of clearing brush windfalls,
slides, repairing track, and strengthening trestle where necessary.
Bear River Protection: The high water showed up one or two weak spots on the
rock wall, and one was repaired before any serious damage resulted. Trees and rock
were placed in position below the south end of the wall in an effort to divert the stream
into the old channel on the east side of the river; 418 cubic yards of rock were used.
The 400 steel rails which were on loan from the Canadian North-eastern Railway were
purchased by the Department.
Irene Meadow Road No. 138A: The road was extended along the bench in a
southerly direction and thence in a northerly direction to the landing of the Upper
Nass-Grease Harbour Ferry.    This was cleared, grubbed, and graded.
Improvements and general maintenance were also carried out on the following
roads: Bear River, Stewart-Hyder, Big Missouri, and Arterial Highway No. 72r,
Stewart. Work was also performed on the following trails: American Creek, Bitter
Creek, and Bear, Nass, and Marmot Rivers.
Snow-removal.—This was one of the worst winters experienced in the history of
the district. Heavy snowfalls followed by extremely cold weather making a mass of
ice which was only cleared with considerable difficulty. The bay was frozen over for
two weeks and the mail-boats had to land at the Hyder, Alaska, wharf, 2 miles south of
Stewart.
Bridges.—Kitsault Suspension Bridge No. 102 was reconstructed. The lumber
was whipsawed and conveyed to the site by speeder over the Dolly Varden Railway.
Rainey Creek Bridge No. 141 was reconstructed longitudinally. This is a 60-foot
three-span stringer bridge; width, 14 feet 10 inches; thirteen stringers, 4 by 12 inches,
16-inch centres, four-post bents on sills cross-braced with abutments. Longitudinal
floor (4-inch) fir laid across 6- by 6-inch ties on 2-foot centres.
Bear River Bridge No. 255:  Repaired, 27-foot stringer and three 16-foot caps.
Bear River Bridge No. 256: Repaired, five 30-foot stringers and 52 feet of cribbing;  8 yards of rock.
Bear River Bridge No. 257: Repaired, five 32-foot stringers and 740 feet of cribbing; 24 yards of rock.
Bear River Bridge No. 258: Repaired, five 33-foot stringers and 120 feet of cribbing.    Posts were strengthened.
Various repairs and strengthening were carried out upon the other bridges in the
North Atlin.
Roads.—O'Donnel River Road No. 13: Some grading was done and two culverts
repaired.
Ruby Road No. 15: Grading, clearing slides, gravelling and ditching; 100 cubic
yards of gravel.
Spruce Creek Road No. 17: A considerable amount of grading was done and several slides cleared off. Surface of road patched and gravelled where necessary; 80
cubic yards of gravel. 0 32 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.

and 100 lineal feet of 10- by 10-inch stringers.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8   (FORT GEORGE AND OMINECA
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, J. W. Miers, Prince George.
Fort George Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—The usual maintenance was carried out on all trunk,
main, and local roads. Some maintenance on settlement and farm roads was done by
farmers working out their taxes, but the total amount of such work was considerably
less than in previous years. This was due to the heavy demand for labour at high
wages in the lumber industry and on military projects on which farmers could readily
find employment in the slack seasons.
Highway Reconstruction and Improvement.—Cariboo Road: Between Mileages
269.1 and 274.2, reconstruction to 32-foot road-bed width was carried out on 1.1 miles.
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway: Camps were established by the Department
of Mines and Resources between Tete Jaune and Yellowhead, in which a considerable
number of Japanese were employed on highway construction. Near Tete Jaune a short
section of the highway was widened and some right-of-way cleared. West of Red Pass
approximately 3 miles were constructed on permanent location. Near the head of
Moose Lake the existing road was connected with the abandoned C.N.P. Railway grade
by a pioneer road built on temporary location on the CN. Railway right-of-way.
Between the head of Moose Lake and the Alberta Provincial Boundary the ties were
removed from the abandoned railway grade, which was widened to approximately 18
feet. Temporary frame trestles were built over Moose River, Grant Brook, two crossings of the Fraser River, and several other streams. This work completed a pioneer
road between Red Pass Junction, B.C., and Geikie, Alberta, over which it is now
possible for motor-vehicles to travel between McBride, B.C., and Jasper, Alberta.
Chief Lake Road: Four miles of this road were reconstructed to 22-foot road-bed
width and gravelled.
Bridges and Culverts.—No major construction or reconstruction was carried out,
and the only repair job involving much material was the reflooring of the south roadway
of the Fraser River Bridge at Prince George.    Materials, particularly timber, were Cypress Creek Bridge, Marine Drive, West Vancouver.

difficult to obtain and experienced bridgemen were scarce. Owing chiefly to the dearth
of materials, a considerable amount of very necessary work had to be left in abeyance.
A considerable number of timber box culverts were renewed, but owing to the labour
shortage no concrete culverts were constructed.
Ferries.—The construction of the new 5-ton reaction ferry at Miworth was completed, as was also the 10-ton ferry at Hansard. The usual service was maintained at
Miworth (I.R. No. 3), Isle Pierre, and Croydon. The new ferry at Hansard operated
successfully at high and medium stages of water. At low water, a sand-bar near the
east shore proved to be a serious obstacle. Owing to a sudden drop in the water-level
the ferry grounded on this bar on October 17th, after which date it was impossible to
maintain service to vehicular traffic.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall throughout the district was heavy, especially in the
timbered sections to the north and east, where the accumulated depth varied between
4 and 5 feet.    The average cost of keeping 252 miles open was $18.49 per mile.
Omineca Electoral District (East).
Maintenance of Highways.—Maintenance of all travelled roads throughout the
district was carried out adequately in spite of the labour shortage which existed. The
maintenance of local roads was chiefly taken care of by farmers working out their
taxes, the total amount of taxes worked out being $4,471. The only major improvement
made in the district was the reconstruction of 1% miles of the Loop road immediately
north of Vanderhoof. Owing to frost setting in at an early date, it was impossible to
complete this work. Considerable work was carried out between Germansen Landing
and the new mercury properties being developed by the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company and the Bralorne Mines, Limited, at Silver Creek. All work on
this winter road was carried out by the mining companies, with the aid of some of
the Department's equipment.
Bridges.—Four small bridges were reconstructed and repairs carried out on eleven
other bridges. It was extremely difficult to secure the services of experienced bridge-
men during the year and, therefore, less bridge-work was done than would have been
had suitable labour been available.
Ferries.—All ferries in the district operated throughout the season. The Fort
Fraser ferry was taken from the river on December 13th and the cage was operated
until January 2nd. The Hulatt Ferry was taken from the river on December 22nd
and the cage operated until February 28th, at which time the ice became suitable for
crossing.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall throughout the district varied considerably. In some
areas the snowfall was rather light, yet in other districts it was about normal. The
total cost of snow-removal in this district was $12,189. This included the cost of snow-
removal between Fort St. James and Germansen Landing, which averaged $69.50 per
mile kept open. The average cost throughout the entire district was $31.33. Excluding
the Manson Creek Road, the cost was $13.26 per mile kept open. Practically all main
highways were ploughed with truck-ploughs. On the Manson Creek Road heavy equipment was necessary owing to the greater depth of snow. The high cost of the Manson
Creek Road was due to a large extent to the remoteness of the work from the district
office and garage, and the lack of telephone or other rapid means of communication.
In some cases when repairs were necessary our operators were unable to communicate
with Vanderhoof.
Omineca Electoral District (West).
Maintenance of Highways.—General maintenance was carried out on all travelled
roads throughout the district. Farmers authorized to work out their taxes were
employed chiefly in maintaining local and settlement roads. All main roads were well
maintained. 0 34 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1942-43.
Highway Construction and Improvement.—The only major work carried out was
the reconstruction on revised location of the Burns Lake-Babine Road between Mileages
12 and 12.5. This work eliminated a section on very poor alignment which was almost
impassable during wet periods.
Bridges.—The only major bridge construction in the district was that of the
Aveling Bridge over the Telkwa River at the Aveling coal-mine. A 100-foot Howe
truss which originally spanned the Telkwa River at Telkwa was reconstructed at the
Aveling crossing. Dodds Creek trestle on the Houston-Wisteria Road and Buck Creek
No. 2 on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway were reconstructed. A number of
other structures were repaired.
Ferries.—The usual service was maintained by the Francois Lake Ferry. During
the period between January 17th and May 4th, the lake was frozen and service, suspended. A complete overhaul was given the engines and all other mechanical equipment was thoroughly gone over. Considerable repainting and redecorating was also
given to the ship.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall throughout this district was below normal. Seventy-five
per cent, of all ploughing was carried out with truck-ploughs. Heavy equipment was
used only on one or two occasions when it became necessary to push back the heavy
comb of snow on shoulders of road which had been deposited there by the truck-ploughs.
During the winter 305 miles of road were kept open, the average cost per mile being
$12.82.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8a   (PEACE RIVER DISTRICT).
District Engineer, F. J. Clark, Pouce Coupe.
Peace River Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—Highway and roads have been maintained under great
difficulty, as traffic has increased to such an extent owing to the advent of the construction of the Alaska Highway that it is almost impossible to keep dirt roads up to standard ;  our gravelled roads are beginning to wear for the same reason.
Canadian and American contractors working on the Alaska Highway have laid
down approximately 65 miles of gravel on Road No. 1; this was primarily for their
own benefit, but has helped the district to a great extent.
Work this year has been confined to improvement of existing roads and highways,
widening, ditching, gravelling, and brushing.
Grande Prairie-Fort St. John-Peace Pass-Road No. 1: From the Alberta Boundary to Pouce Coupe-—renewed several culverts, cleaned out ditches, and brushed 4.5
miles from Pouce Coupe to Dawson Creek, brought up 0.5 mile to standard, renewed
culverts. Dawson Creek to Cutbank River—raised grade 2.4 miles, renewed culverts,
and cleaned ditches. From Cutbank River to Taylor—cleaned out ditches, put in
eighteen new culverts, and brushed 12 miles. Taylor to Fort St. John—renewed culverts, cleaned ditches, and brushed 3.5 miles. Fort St. John to Hudson Hope—constructed new grade down to Cache Creek 2.5 miles, Red River Hill cut down to
8-per-cent. grade, culvert constructed at Ardills Coulee, and several culverts constructed. From Hudson Hope to Gold Bar—the hill at the west end of the Rocky
Mountain Portage was cut down to a 7-per-cent. grade, several small bridges renewed,
and approximately 5.5 miles brushed.
Dawson Creek-Rolla-Clayhurst: Gravelling finished between Dawson Creek and
Rolla, six new culverts constructed, ditches cleaned. Rolla to Clayhurst—ditches
cleaned, culverts renewed, and 7.4 miles brushed, grade raised for approximately 2.3
miles, hill on the north side of Peace River cleaned of slides and widened to 20-foot
width. -  . DISTRICT REPORTS. O 35
East Pine-Moberly-Hudson Hope: Fourteen miles cleared and partly graded,
several new culverts installed, grading stopped on account of frost and shortage of
funds, there are approximately 3.8 miles to complete; several small slides cleaned out
between Moberly and Hudson Hope.
Sunset Prairie-Fort St. John: Maintained the 4 miles constructed previous year
and cleared up brush on right-of-way.
East Pine-Commotion Creek: Cleaned out ditches and installed two new culverts,
maintained until the end of September by funds from Mines Branch from Commotion
Creek to Hasler Creek; bulldozed winter road a distance of 10 miles to assist coal-
hauling into Dawson Creek.
Fort St. John-Cecil Lake: Cleaned out slides on both sides of the Beatton River,
installed several culverts east of Cecil Lake, brushed 2.3 miles and cleaned out ditches,
slashed out 4.8 miles for road extension.
Rose Prairie-North Pine-Fort St. John: This road was well maintained during
the season, new culverts installed and several culverts renewed; brushing and cleaning
out ditches.
Fort St. John-Montney-Murdale: Raised grade 4.5 miles south of Montney, cleaned
out ditches and brushed about 3.4 miles, culverts renewed in several places, prepared
Jim's Coulee for large wood-stave pipe to replace bridge.
Tupper Creek-Hays-Gundy: Regraded hill on east side of the Pouce Coupe River,
brushed 2.5 miles and cleaned out ditches where necessary, renewed several culverts,
road west of Gundy ranch extended 1.4 miles.
Hanshaw-Upper Cutbank-Arras: Road regraded 5.2 miles south of Arras, from
Hanshaw north of Spring Hill brushed and new culverts installed, renewed one small
bridge which had been burned by bush fire.
Pouce Coupe-Briar Ridge: Road regraded for 1.3 miles, ditches cleaned and
several culverts renewed, hill on east side of Pouce Coupe River had light coat of gravel.
Tax Work.—This work was carried out over the whole district; it has helped the
farmers in the outlying districts to improve their farm roads, but it is very difficult to
concentrate labour in any one place as settlement is scattered. Supervision is very
high on this class of work, but altogether there is a great improvement on secondary
roads.
Roads Generally.—There are- 88 miles of road gravelled in the district; this is
outside of the Alaska Highway and, as funds permit, this programme is being extended
on the main roads. The highway from Dawson Creek to Rolla is practically an all-
weather road, as also the road from Dawson Creek to Peace River; another 9 miles of
gravel was laid down on the road between Dawson Creek and Sunset Prairie. Access
roads to the main highways are gradually being brought up to a higher standard,
through tax work and District Vote.
Bridges.—Maintenance on bridges has been carried out as far as funds would
permit; there are a great number that should be redecked immediately. Particularly
on the main roads traffic has increased so much that it is almost impossible to keep
bridges in good shape. Bridges that are designed for 15-ton loads are carrying from
5- to 30-ton loads. These bridges have been reinforced where the traffic is the heaviest,
but, even so, stringers and decks are rapidly deteriorating.
The American army engineers have been notified about the condition of the bridges
which they use, and have in some instances renewed decks and put in extra stringers.
If No. 1 fir can be procured, it would be to the greatest advantage, as the local timber
has a very short life, particularly on decks.
Ferries.—All ferries have been well maintained.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal was moderate, but there was a great deal of drifting.    However, traffic was uninterrupted and all main roads kept open.
Maintenance of Government Buildings.—All buildings have been well maintained
and are in good shape. O 36
