REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., November 1st, 1944.
Hon. Herbert Anscomb,
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 for the fiscal year 1943-44.
GENERAL OUTLINE OF WORK.
During the year new highway-construction was limited to essential highways of
national importance for reasons of economy and the difficulties in obtaining labour,
materials, and equipment. Construction-work undertaken the previous year was completed or continued according to circumstances.
New hard-surfacing was undertaken on highways that were prepared to receive this
treatment during the previous year. The primary object of the Department was to
maintain in good repair the surfaces of the existing highways with a view to the safety
and convenience of the travelling public and in order to minimize as far as possible
the necessity for resurfacing.
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.
With a view to post-war rehabilitation, a comprehensive scheme of highway construction and improvement was prepared and submitted to the Federal Government at
Ottawa in order that the Department might be fully prepared to commence at any time
upon this work.
In some localities the operation of National Defence vehicles has necessitated a
very great increase in the amount of maintenance-work to be done in order that local
roads would stand up under traffic which, in normal times, they would not be called
upon to carry.
HIGHWAY-CONSTRUCTION.
On Vancouver Island reconstruction was undertaken on the Island Highway south
of French Creek, Comox District; a new concrete retaining-wall was built on the
Malahat Drive, and various sections between Victoria and Mill Bay were reconstructed and surfaced, also the relocation of the Malahat Drive completed the previous
year was hard-surfaced to standard. On the South Shore Road, Shawnigan Lake,
reconstruction was undertaken over a distance of 6.5 miles and the Cowichan Bay
Road was reconstructed for a distance of 5 miles with a view to being hard-surfaced
next year. In the Lower Fraser Valley the reconstructed portion of the Trans-Canada
Highway at Barton Ditch was hard-surfaced and a bituminous flush-coat was laid on
No. 5 Road, Lulu Island. In the North Vancouver District, reconstruction and
bituminous surfacing was completed on Marine Drive between Fourteenth and Seventeenth Streets.
5 Q 6
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
On the Trans-Canada Highway a rock-filled retaining-wall was completed on the
Cariboo Highway and also a relocation west of Yale, and improvements comprising
widening and realignment were carried out in the Salmon Arm District. Good progress was also made in connection with the reconstruction of this highway between
Sicamous and Revelstoke in conjunction with the Dominion Government. On the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway further progress was made on the construction
of the Hope-Princeton section in conjunction with the Dominion Government; construction was also completed on the Nelson-Castlegar section and the Erickson-Kit-
chener section, and the diversion at Taghum Hill was completed and now provides a
very great improvement in alignment and grade at this point; reconstruction was also
carried out on the Cascade section and in the vicinity of Fernie. On the Northern
Trans-Provincial Highway very good progress was made on the construction of this
highway between Prince Rupert and Cedarvale, and this work should be completed next
year so that the road may be available for traffic; reconstruction was undertaken in the
vicinity of Lowe's Ranch.
Other work accomplished during the year included in the Cariboo District a 14-mile
connection between Deka Lake Road and Canim Lake Road; on the Williams Lake-
57-Mile Road, 15 miles were reconditioned and a S^-mile diversion completed; also
7 miles of Redstone-Chezacut Road were reconstructed. In the Okanagan District
reconstruction was commenced near Postill, on the Okanagan Highway, and construction was completed on the 4 miles of major improvement on the Vernon-Edgewood
Road. In the Kamloops District very good progress was made on the construction of
the North Thompson Highway to make connection with Tete Jaune Cache. Other
works that were undertaken are included in the various reports as submitted from the
district offices and included elsewhere.
SURFACING.
During the year a total of approximately 144 miles of new surfacing and resurfacing was completed on Provincial highways and the details of the mileages and types
as completed on the various highways are shown in the report of the Surfacing
Engineer.

For further details reference may be made to the district reports.
MAINTENANCE OF ROADS, BRIDGES, AND FERRIES.
Satisfactory maintenance of roads, bridges, and ferries was carried out, the work
being undertaken from funds in the " District Vote." Particular attention was paid
to the maintenance of yellow traffic-lines on the lower mainland and Vancouver Island, REPORT OF DEPUTY MINISTER. Q 7
both for the guidance of traffic and for safety during foggy weather. Main highways
were improved and widened, the brush cut off and ditches cleaned out, and they were
generally maintained in a most satisfactory condition. Difficulty was encountered in
the obtaining of timber for the maintenance of bridges; all such structures being kept
in a satisfactory condition. As in past years, arrangements were put into effect
whereby farmers were enabled to work out their arrears of taxes by doing maintenance-
work on various highways.
FLOODS.
The year was an exceptionally good one with respect to flood conditions, and no
reports of any major damage to any highways throughout the Province were received.
At Squamish, where in past years flood-damage has been excessive, a diversion to the
Squamish River channel at Murphy's Bend was successfully completed; the channel,
2,400 feet in length, was cleared to a width of 500 feet with a view to avoiding further
damage by flooding.
SNOW-REMOVAL.
The snowfall throughout the Province was exceptionally light and Department
equipment experienced no difficulty in keeping open the principal highways. Throughout the Province, 6,517 miles of road were kept open by snow-plough, involving a total
of 72,534 snow-plough miles at an average cost of $18.14 per mile kept open. During
the previous year, 8,362 miles of road were ploughed and kept open at an average cost
of $25.30 per mile.
ROAD MILEAGE.
Elsewhere in this report will be found a statement of the mileage and type of construction of Provincial highways. A total of 21,806 miles shows an increase of 132
miles over the previous year. This increase is not necessarily all due to new construction. District officials periodically revise their road registers and adjustments
are necessary from time to time. It will be noted that the Provincial highway system
includes 497 miles of municipal highways classified as arterial, primary, or secondary.
The total mileage may be summarized as follows:—
Trunk and main highways     7,214.60
Local roads  i     5,610.34
Settlement, industrial, and mining roads     8,981.26
Total  21,806.20
In addition, there are 10,046 miles of trails on the registers, of which 5,836 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.
Notwithstanding the rationing of gasoline and rubber, there.was an increase during the year in the number of vehicles using this bridge, with a corresponding increase
in revenue. Traffic amounted to 1,833,718 vehicles and the revenue collected was
$230,487.01.
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:— Q 8

CLASSIFICATION OF HIGHWAYS   (PART III., "HIGHWAY ACT").
Attached is a statement showing all municipal highways, classified as arterial,
primary, and secondary respectively, under Part III. of the " Highway Act." The
totals as at March 31st, 1944, were as follows:—
Classified as arterial l  320.08
Classified as primary     61.35
Classified as secondary  115.93
Total  497.36
Such changes in classified highways as were made were duly reported in The
British Columbia Gazette, as required by the Statutes.
GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS.
The report of the Chief Architect, attached hereto, outlines the activities of the
Architectural Branch of the Department.
POST-WAR REHABILITATION.
A very comprehensive programme has been prepared by the Department for the
purpose of construction and reconstruction of the Provincial highway system after the
war in order to provide improved transportation facilities, first-class roads for tourists
visiting the Province, and the employment of a great number of workers, both technical
and non-technical. In this connection the- Department has drawn up highway specifications covering three classes of highways—namely, first-class, second-class, and third-
class—to suit the needs of the various sections of the Province, and a detailed study of
soil analysis has been made with respect to the various materials available in different
localities and their suitability for use in highway-construction. With this programme
in view, surveys have been undertaken so that the Department may be ready to proceed
at any time when warranted. Reconnaissance surveys were undertaken over four routes
to ascertain the best possible location for a highway to connect the existing Provincial
highway system with the Peace River District and to provide an outlet to the Pacific
Coast. Other surveys were undertaken on the principal highways of the Province, the
details of which are more particularly set out in the report of the Locating Engineer.
Where surveys have been finished, negotiations have been completed, or are still in
progress, for the acquisition of the right-of-way required with a view to the immediate
commencement of work when the situation warrants.   REPORT OF CHIEF ARCHITECT. Q 9
MISCELLANEOUS.
Revisions and additions were made to departmental standard specifications as were
considered necessary.
A great amount of consideration has been given with respect to subdivision plans
submitted to the approving officer under the " Land Registry Act," having regard to
the large amount of subdividing that is being undertaken in certain parts of the Province, and taking into consideration the reasonable requirements that could be expected
in order that the land so subdivided may be suitable for the purpose for which it was
intended. In certain localities where rapid growth has occurred in a very short period,
many questions of drainage and suitable road connections have provided problems that
will have to be faced in increasing numbers in the future in order that settlement shall
be orderly, healthy, and to the benefit of the surrounding property-owners.
Correspondence comprised 37,368 inward and outward letters.
In conclusion, it gives me great pleasure to place on record the loyalty and efficiency
of the various officials of this Department and to commend the high standard of their
work. ,
All of which is respectfully submitted.
A. DIXON,
Deputy Minister.

plans for addition to Vernon elementary school. Numerous sketches have been prepared. We check over plans prepared by outside architects and advise as found necessary for the approval of the Education Department.
REPAIRS.
The buildings throughout the Province have been maintained and kept in good
condition externally and internally. The chief buildings calling for attention being
the Parliament Buildings, Colquitz Mental Home, Victoria Court-house, Government
House, and many large institutions on the mainland—Essondale and New Westminster
Mental Homes being the largest.
Plans and working drawings have been prepared for a seventy-five-bed maternity
hospital wing at the Jubilee Hospital. This building is a reinforced concrete structure.
Further, the contract for the alterations to the Centre Block and A, B, and C Wings at
the New Westminster Mental Hospital has been let and work commenced. Plans and
specifications for this large project have been completed by this Department during
the last year.
A complete report on the necessary building-work that may be contemplated by the
Provincial and civic authorities in the Province as post-war rehabilitation has already
been mentioned in the Annual Report of the Minister of Public Works, 1942-43.
I wish to thank the members of my staff, the tradesmen's staff, and the District
Engineers for their co-operation and assistance in carrying out the work of this
Branch, and to Mr. H. L. Taylor and his staff for their excellent work on preparation of
the various electrical plans in connection with our work, and to you, sir, for your
co-operation in our work.
Respectfully submitted. TT   _
H. Whittaker,
Chief Architect.
REPORT OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEER.
Similar conditions prevailed again this year as in the last. Materials were very
high in price and it was difficult to obtain delivery. Men were scarce for doing the
work and, consequently, we were unable to do many jobs which ought to have been done.
In many cases the work cost more than it should on account of delays in delivery
of material and also due to the inefficient labour we had to employ.
The largest portion of our expenditure went towards maintenance and repairs, but
several minor structures were renewed.
Major structures, as follows, were built: Smithers over the Bulkley River; Bridal
Veil Falls on Southern Trans-Provincial Highway; Brisco over Columbia River;
Rosewall and Trent on the Island Highway; and Glacier Creek on the Howser-Argenta
Road.
A list giving details of the work carried out on the principal bridges and ferries
is given elsewhere in this publication.
The draughting-room staff, although somewhat reduced in number, have been able
to meet most of the demands placed upon them.
Credit is due to both the Headquarters and field staffs for the work which they
have accomplished in these difficult times. „•...»»

REPORT OF THE MECHANICAL SUPERINTENDENT.
INSPECTION OF EQUIPMENT AND MACHINERY.
During the fiscal year 1943-44 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 to 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 by outside firms.
An increasing number of equipment units from outside districts are 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. Consideration ought to be given to the allocation of funds for the overhaul and repair of
such units so that they will be in proper working condition when the necessity arises
for their employment.
NEW EQUIPMENT.
Purchase of new and second-hand equipment amounting to approximately $90,000
was made during the year. The equipment purchased included trucks, snow-ploughs,
rock-crushing plant, tractor, and a considerable quantity of garage equipment and
tools.
REPAIR-SHOPS AND EQUIPMENT-SHEDS.
A new repair-shop was built and equipped at Langford, Esquimalt District, and
construction was commenced on a new repair-shop at Vernon.
POWER FERRIES.
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:—
Kelowna-Westbank. Harrop-Longbeach. Arrow Park.
Francois Lake. Ladner-Woodward. Clayhurst.
Twelve-mile. Agassiz-Rosedale. Taylor Flats.
Twenty-four-mile. Castlegar. Kootenay Lake.

The only new mileage laid during the year was the 4.25-mile gap in the surfacing
about midway between Savona and Kamloops, where a double tar primer coat was
applied preparatory to surfacing next season. Also in the Esquimalt District there
were some short sections of new work on relocations of the highway.
A total of 138.18 miles of resurfacing was done, including 9.36 miles of mulch-work.
The total bitumen used during the year was 647,762 gallons.

REPORT OF THE LOCATING ENGINEER.
The fiscal year 1943-44 was a very busy one for the Location Branch of the Department of Public Works. Eight parties were put in the field, seven on road location and
one in connection with flood-control in the Southern Okanagan. Six of these parties
worked from April 1st to October 15th and two worked the entire fiscal year. One
hundred and sixty-six men were given seasonal employment and thirty-seven were
employed continuously, either in the field or at headquarters getting out plans and
estimates. A total of 95.63 miles of locations was completed, permanently referenced,
and estimates prepared.
The eighth party was organized to make a contour survey in connection with flood-
control of the lower Okanagan Valley, from Penticton to the United States boundary,
an area 44 miles in length with an average width of 1% miles. This survey was
financed jointly by the Provincial and Federal Governments.
Four major reconnaissances covering 1,570 miles were carried out. One using
two parties covered the four possible routes which could be used to give access to the
Peace River Block and the Alaska Highway from Southern British Columbia. Another
investigated the possibilities of a road from Creston to Salmo over the Lost Creek
Summit, and another small party worked between Vancouver and New Westminster
to secure data for the proposed Express Highway between the above cities.
A British Columbia Land Surveyor was employed on a yearly basis to tie in and
monument key rights-of-way purchased in connection with our major main road surveys.  Concrete retaining-wall on curve, Malahat Drive, Island Highway.

DISTRICT REPORTS. Q 13
In addition to the above, the Location Branch supplied and paid for a number of
engineers to make minor surveys in districts where local help was not available and
in some instances supplied resident engineers on construction.
Considerable additional camp equipment had to be purchased and additional storage
space provided. To take care of this an old barn was renovated and a concrete silo
reconstructed to provide fire-proof storage for the thousands of dollars' worth of
scientific instruments. A number of new and second-hand transits and levels were
purchased and existing instruments were checked and repairs arranged where necessary.
A second-hand panel light delivery truck was purchased for the Okanagan Flood-
control Survey and a number of light trucks and one car were taken over for the use
of the different field parties.

DISTRICT REPORTS.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 1   (VANCOUVER ISLAND
AND THE ISLANDS).
District Engineer, 0. W. Smith.
Alberni Electoral District.
General.—Weather conditions throughout the year were exceptionally good; no
snow, floods, and very little frost. Labour conditions were bad, making it extremely
difficult to carry out work in an efficient manner.
Road Improvements.—Considerable widening, gravelling, and ditching were done
on the Canadian Highway preparatory to hard-surfacing. On the Tofino-Ucluelet
Highway from Airport to Tofino considerable gravelling was done.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A total of 0.23 mile of roads was mulched; 2.2 miles
double sprayed and 1.6 miles single sprayed. Owing to shortage of asphalt this class
of work had to be considerably curtailed.
Bridges.—Eight bridges having a total length of 340 feet were replaced with new
structures. Maintenance on other bridges was carried out to the extent that funds
would permit.
Cowichan-Newcastle Electoral District.
General.—Weather conditions were good throughout the year. Labour conditions
continue to get worse, making it extremely difficult to maintain the roads in the manner
desired and at the same time carry on with improvement-work.
Road Improvements.—On the South Shore Road a start was made reconstructing
the road under the contract for a distance of 6.5 miles to take care of the increased
traffic due to the development of the lumber industry in this area; owing to adverse
conditions this work is only 40 per cent, complete. Cowichan Bay Road was reconstructed for a distance of 5 miles preparatory to surfacing this year.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A total of 1.72 miles of road was double sprayed and 0.45
mile single sprayed.
Bridges.—South Forks Bridge, 130-foot Howe truss over the Nanaimo River, was
completed;  repairs were carried out to thirty-six other bridges throughout the district. Q 14 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
Esquimalt Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—The major work carried out during this
fiscal year consisted of the following projects: Reconstruction and asphalt-mulch surfacing of 2 miles of the Island Highway at Langford, 0.65 mile of the Craigflower Road,
0.77 mile of the Admirals Road, 0.21 mile of the Plowright Road, and 3.65 miles of the
Malahat Drive (Island Highway).
Mile 23 to Mile 26.65 (newly constructed) was gravelled and given a mulch-asphalt
surface. Eighteen miles of surfaced road were retreated with a single spray-coat of
asphalt. Extensive repairs were carried out to existing asphalt surfaces by premix
patching and 14.7 miles of road were ripped, regraded, gravelled, and made ready for
asphalt surfacing.
Some 2,000 level feet of new culverts were installed. A concrete retaining-wall
was built at Mile 21.83, Island Highway.
A new large modern equipped garage was built at Langford yard, and also a
storage machinery shed of new and improved design and equipment. The storage-yard
at Langford (formerly under lease) was purchased by the Government and additional
land was acquired and added to the garage-yard area.
The Department's large warehouse at Langford gave satisfactory service and
assistance in the purchase and distribution of materials, supplies, and equipment to
the Vancouver Island District and also to the Mainland areas.
The charter of the Mill Bay Ferry expired during the year and was renewed.
Weather and Snowfall.—The weather throughout the year was uneventful, and
during the winter was mild with precipitation less than normal. No snow-removal
was required.
It has been difficult to obtain sufficient labour, skilled or unskilled, to carry out the
programme of work planned by the Department for the fiscal year.
Bridges.—Five bridges were replaced by culverts and fills and a number of others
were renewed or reconditioned. Difficulty was experienced in getting the requisite
materials and the skilled labour required for the work.
Comox Electoral District.
Hightvay Construction and Maintenance.—The major construction during the year
was the reconstruction of % mile of the Island Highway south of French Creek at
Mile 93.88, which removed an outstanding hazard to vehicular traffic at that point.
Maintenance-work was carried out by small crews and every effort was made to hold
the surface of the roads together. The flush-coat surfacing of 18.18 miles of old
asphalt surface assisted greatly in the maintenance-work.
New bridges were built over Rosewall Creek and Trent River, and the work was
started on the reconstruction of the bridges in the Sayward area.
Snow-removal was nil throughout the district.
Due to military vehicles and the construction of the Comox Airport, traffic was
unusually heavy throughout the year in the areas between Wellington and Campbell
River.
Denman Island Ferry carried on satisfactorily throughout the year.
Nanaimo and The Islands Electoral District.
General.—Very fine weather conditions were experienced throughout the year, no
snow or floods and very little frost. As in other districts, shortage of labour was very
acute, making it difficult to carry out the work efficiently.
Road Improvements.—No major improvements were carried out during the year;
all roads were maintained in a satisfactory condition.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A total of 5.25 miles of roads was resprayed (single
flush-coat). DISTRICT REPORTS. Q 15
Bridges and Ferry-landings.—Two bridges on Galiano Island having a total length
of 112 feet were replaced; maintenance on other bridges was carried out as far as
possible.
Saanich Electoral District.
The work in the Saanich District consisted mainly of maintenance of surfaced
roads, of which 4.5 miles were given a single flush-coat treatment, and a recap treatment was applied to several short sections of the East Saanich Road and Quadra Street.
Shoulders were widened at some points.
Power-grading was given to unsurfaced roads in the North Saanich area. Ditches
in the townsite area of Sidney were cleaned out and deepened where it was feasible to
do so, and relieved in a measure temporarily the unsanitary conditions of that area.
A survey was made, and plans and specifications made for a standard combined drainage
system for the central area of Sidney.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 3 (BURNABY, DEWDNEY, NORTH VANCOUVER, VANCOUVER-POINT GREY, MACKENZIE, DELTA, CHILLIWACK,
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, with particular emphasis
on repairs to bituminous surfaces.
Snow-removal.—A very mild winter was experienced and the snowfall was
negligible.
Bituminous Surfacing.—One mile of seal-coat was laid on the Hastings-Barnet
Road 14r from Sperling Avenue easterly.
Dewdney Electoral District.
Construction.—In Maillardville: Construction of curb gutters and drainage structures. This work will widen the highway 10 feet. From this 10-foot width all muck
and soft material was removed and a substantial gravel base laid. This area is now
ready for an asphaltic surface, which will be laid this year. The total length of this
work is 1,000 feet.
At Agassiz Ferry-landing on Lougheed Highway 28R (Caignou Diversion) :
Relocation and construction of 3,400 feet of the highway, eliminating three right-angle
turns and a bridge. This brings the highway on easy curvature to the ferry-landing.
A heavy gravel base was put in and the work is ready for surfacing, which will be
undertaken this year.
loco-Port Moody Road: Seven permanent culverts were installed, which makes
another % mile of this road ready for widening. Widening will be continued this
year.
Lougheed Highway, Dewdney Crossing: A gravel-fill with ramps was built on
the north side of the C.P.R. tracks and this dangerous railway crossing has thus been
made reasonably safe. The south approach will be put in hand this year, which will
give additional safety.
Hatzic Prairie, Legace Creek: Improvements to Legace Creek were undertaken.
This consisted of straightening the creek and cleaning out the portions of the old creek-
bed between the new channels.    This greatly improved the road-drainage.
loco Townsite, Drainage on First Avenue: An old cedar drain became obsolete and
it was replaced with 140 feet of 30-inch reinforced-concrete pipe.    One concrete man- Q 16 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
hole was also necessary. This takes care of the waters of a creek which runs under
First Avenue and on through the townsite.
Maintenance.-—The usual maintenance of roads was carried out, bituminous surfaces receiving special attention.
Bridges.—Mission Bridge (C.P.R.) No. 106.1: A concrete retaining-wall to hold
the north approach to this bridge was installed at a cost of $950. This replaced a
timber bulkhead, which had rotted away.
Lampard Bridge No. 10-11, Salvaster Road: Two hundred feet of this structure
were filled and a new standard pile, 103 feet long, was built to close the gap between the
fills.
McConnell Creek Bridge No. 10-123, Salvaster Road: This old structure was replaced with a standard pile trestle.
Extensive repairs to many bridges throughout the district were undertaken.
Snow-removal.—A mild winter was experienced and the snowfall was negligible.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Mulch surfaces were laid on the approaches to Pitt River
Bridge and seal-coats were laid as follows: In Port Moody City, 1.5 miles on the Dewdney Trunk Road 19r; 10.14 miles on the Lougheed Highway from Hatzic to a point
1 mile east of Deroche. Heavy cover-stone was used and a good non-skid surface was
obtained.
The usual maintenance was carried out on all roads, special attention being given
to the clearing of all brush from the right-of-way of main highway between Hunter
Creek and Silver Creek; 1.31 miles of this road, from Hunter Creek east, were flush-
coated.
The Airport Road No. 10-79 was given a good coat of gravel.
Mackenzie (North) Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out, culverts replaced, ditches
cleaned out, and many roads and trails were brushed out. Regular grading was done
throughout the season.
Construction.—Construction of B.C. Cement Road No. 252 on Texada Island was
completed during March, 1944.
Bridges.—Craig Bridge No. 159 and Burns Bridge No. 273 were replaced by 24-inch
concrete culverts and filled in; approximately 9,000 cubic yards of material were
required for this work. Minor repairs were carried out to a large number of bridges
throughout this district.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Three miles of flush-coating on surfaced roads in the
Powell River District were completed. Considerable patching was necessary to other
surfaced roads.
Snow-removal.—Due to the mild winter, there was not enough snow to tie up
North Vancouver Electoral District.
General.—Maintenance of highways was kept up under abnormal labour conditions; drainage receiving particular attention and the smooth-riding qualities of the
pavement retained by carefully skin-patching irregularities as they developed.
In order to secure sufficient labour, it was necessary at times to have the co-operation and use of municipal forces.
Highway Construction and Improvements.—The reconstruction and widening of
Marine Drive 67a from Fourteenth to Seventeenth Streets, started last year, was completed in the early summer when this business section of 0.28 mile was resurfaced 50
feet wide with a fine medium mix asphaltic mulch.
Several new bus turn-outs were constructed at various street intersections on
Marine Drive 67a and given a primary penetration of asphalt.  Ball

Creston Ferry, Nelson-Creston District. DISTRICT REPORTS. Q 17
Bridges.—Only light maintenance was carried out on two bridges with repainting
of the deck-rails and readjustment of riprap protection.
Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral District.
General.—Roads in this district were kept in good repair and a considerable
amount of patching was done to the paved surfaces, taking out small depressions, which
greatly improved the riding qualities.
Ditching and renewing old log culverts with permanent concrete pipe was also
undertaken.
Highway Construction and Improvements.—On Marine Drive from Mile 6.10 to
Mile 7.30 gravel shoulders 7 feet wide were laid, using 800 cubic yards of gravel, in
preparation for resurfacing the pavement in this section.
Chancellor Boulevard, University Endowment Lands: This Department opened up
0.97 mile of this road for the Department of Lands, which included light clearing,
grading, ditching, and gravelling. On a 20-foot wide surface 1,750 cubic yards of
gravel were used.
New Westminster Electoral District.
The majority of the work in D.L. 172 consisted of improvements to the drainage
system.
Over 2,000'feet of reinforced-concrete pipe were installed to replace open ditches.
Ten standard concrete catch-basins were also built.
Street name-posts were erected at all intersections.
A frame building with concrete foundation and concrete floor and shingle roof was
erected for a tool-shed.
Delta Electoral District.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance-work was carried out on all roads. The
bituminous surfaced roads were kept well patched, and owing to the open winter this
patching was necessary during all the winter months.
A considerable number of concrete and creosoted wood-stave culverts were installed
in the drainage-ditches of the Trans-Canada Highway 2r and 3R and the King George
VI. Highway 15R to provide access to subdivisions now being developed.
The planting of ornamental trees on the right-of-way of the King George VI.
Highway was completed for the whole length of the highway.
The widening of the shoulders of the Ladner Trunk Road 68A, which was commenced last year, was completed.
At the west end of the Village of Langley Prairie, 400 feet of 12-inch perforated
creosoted wood-stave pipe, together with three concrete catch-basins, were placed in the
drainage-ditch on the south side of the highway (Trans-Canada Highway 3r), while
400 feet of 12-inch reinforced-concrete pipe and two catch-basins were placed on the
north side. The fill over both these pipes, which was made in co-operation with the
Municipality of Langley, provides wide shoulders, which greatly improve the parking
conditions here.
Traffic-lines were repainted on all main roads in the district as required.
Bituminous Surfacing.—About 2 miles of the Trans-Canada Highway 3r from Mile
27.5 to Mile 29.5, east of Langley Prairie, were recapped.
A short section, about 330 feet, of the Pacific Highway 13R at Livingstone Hill,
which was reconstructed last year, was surfaced with asphaltic mulch.
A flush-coat was put down on No. 5 Road (Fraser Avenue) 66R on Lulu Island.
Bridges.—Owing to the difficulty of procuring bridge timbers, only minor repairs
were made to many of the bridges in the district and these structures are now getting
to the stage where constant patching of the decks is necessary.
Lumber has just been procured for the redecking of three bridges in the vicinity
of Ladner, and it is hoped that more may be made available during the summer.
2 Q 18 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
Ferries.—Both the Ladner-Woodward and Barnston Island Ferries operated continuously throughout the year. The channel down-stream from the landing on the
Ladner side continues to silt up and some dredging had to be done in July.
A new and larger scow, capable of carrying two trucks, was provided for the
Barnston Island service.
The landing-ramp on Barnston Island was shortened by filling in the section above
high water.
The Hjorth Road landing was repaired on several occasions with salvaged timbers.
Snow-removal.—The winter was one of the mildest on record and the snowfall—-
some 4 or 5 inches in February—one of the lightest.
Chilliwack Electoral District.
Road Maintenance.—The roads throughout the district were satisfactorily maintained.
The open winter, with alternating light frosts and rain, was very hard on the
bituminous surfaced roads and continuous patching was necessary throughout the
entire winter.
Traffic-lines were painted on all main roads and the shoulders of these roads were
kept mowed from May to September.
A special effort was made to clear the heavy growth of brush from the right-of-way
of the Trans-Canada Highway 5-11, east of Rosedale. About 10 miles of this was
completed, leaving some 7 miles still to be done.
Gravelling was done on the V2-mile section of reconstructed road, Trans-Canada
Highway 8r, at Barton Creek, and on 1% miles of the Yale Road 6lR. The section
from Sumas Municipal Hall to the pumping station of the Yale Road 6lR, a distance of
11.62 miles, was declassified in February and is now maintained by the municipality.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A road-mix mulch surface was laid on the %-mile section
of reconstructed road at Barton Creek on Trans-Canada Highway 8r.
Bridges.—The same difficulty in procuring bridge timbers was experienced in this
as in other districts, with the result that only very minor repairs could be undertaken.
Material is now on hand for redecking bridges No. 5-10 and No. 5-26. Three small
bridges, Nos. 5-58, 5-71, and 5-74, were redecked and the majority of the floor-planks
of Wilband Creek Bridge No. 5-25 on the Abbotsford-Mission Road were renewed.
Two small bridges, No. 5-36 and No. 5-37, in Columbia Valley were replaced by
hewn cedar box culverts and fills.
Ferries.—The Agassiz-Rosedale Ferry operated without interruption throughout
the year. A start was made to renew a portion of the inside protection-wall of the
Agassiz landing and it is hoped to continue with this work during the low-water period
next year.    Five protection dolphins were driven at the Rosedale winter landing.
Herrling Island Ferry-boat was overhauled. All seams were caulked, floor-planks
renewed, and the whole boat painted inside and outside.
River-bank Protection.—Considerable work was done at Ballam Slough on the
south bank of the Fraser River to prevent erosion. Piles were driven and cut off at
water-level across both ends of this slough and these proved quite effective in preventing further deepening of this channel.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was the lightest in many years, with the result that
snow-ploughs were not in use at any time. DISTRICT REPORTS. Q 19
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: Grading and general repairs under District Vote funds
were confined for the most part to the more heavily travelled roads; the work on the
settler roads was cared for as much as possible by the tax-workers. Extraordinary
expenditures were required to recondition and maintain many miles of roads for timber operators using logging trucks. This was particularly so on lateral roads which
previously carried farm traffic only.
Construction and Reconstruction.—Roads: Some minor betterments were carried
out in the way of widening points and gravelling. One bad hill section near Clearwater
was considerably improved by reconstruction on relocation.
Road Surfacing.—On the Trans-Canada Highway near Cherry Creek 4.25 miles
were improved by a double spray-coat of tar and screened gravel. This proved very
successful.
Snoiv-removal.—The winter snowfall was below normal, but extensive ploughing
was required to keep open the roads used by logging operators and for settlers who
more and more are looking for open roads for winter running. The total distance run
by the snow-ploughs was 3,660 miles.
Bridges.—The work on bridges was confined for the most part to repairs and
reinforcing. Many structures originally built for farm traffic were required to be
reconditioned to carry heavy logging-trucks. Two renewals were carried out, one a
65-foot trestle on McCarthy Creek and a 20-foot stringer bridge on Robbins Range.
In co-operation with the Department of Mines and Resources, a new bridge was constructed over the North Thompson River between Lempriere and Gosnell.
Ferries.—All ferries were maintained satisfactorily.    The pontoons on the reaction
ferries along the North Thompson River were pulled out where necessary and repaired
and painted.
Yale Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance of roads was carried out during the year in
the usual manner. Some difficulty was experienced through lack of labour, but this
situation has now improved considerably. Considerable gravelling was carried out
during the year and on the main roads, where possible, the gravel has been screened.
This has proved worth while and will be continued.
On the Cariboo Highway a shovel was used for several months to clean up slide
material over a distance of 15.5 miles. In March a rock-slide took out two bents of the
Ferrabee Bridge at Mile 132.5 on the Cariboo Highway, closing the road for twelve
hours.
Snow-removal in the district was average.
Major Reconstruction and Improvement.—On the Cariboo Highway the principal
work carried out during the year included completion of the rock-fill and retaining-wall
at Swan Bridge approach at Mile 126; continuation of widening at Mile 128, and
reconstruction on relocation of 0.6 mile at Mile 111.5, west of Yale. This also included
replacing two wooden box culverts with a concrete culvert 6 feet square inside at
Mile 111.
On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Hope the Department of
Mines and Resources has had three shovels and two bulldozers working on relocation
of sections of the highway from Mile 2 to Mile 15. This work is progressing favourably at the present time. Q 20 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
On the Kamloops Road a dangerous rock corner was partly removed and on the
Merritt-Princeton Road a short diversion was made at Mile 12.
Bituminous Surfacing.—There were 6.23 miles of seal-coat put down by contract
on the Cariboo Highway. This was done in good weather and has turned out very
satisfactory.
Bridges.—All bridges in the Yale District were maintained in a satisfactory state
of repair. Some difficulty was experienced in obtaining bridge timber. During the
year the Divide Bridge was eliminated by filling. A 60-foot King truss on the Coquihalla Bridge was renewed and the approach raised 2 feet with a rock-fill. On the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway a new bridge over Bridal Veil Falls was started
and is about 60 per cent, completed. On the Cariboo Highway three truss bridges were
tightened up. Extensive repairs were made to sills and posts of many bridges. Cedar
was used as much as possible for this purpose.
Ferries.—The Boston Bar-North Bend aerial ferry operated throughout the year
without any inconvenience to traffic due to repairs. The ferry-hoist building at Boston
Bar was lined on the inside making it warmer and more comfortable. During the
twelve months there were 2,184 vehicles and 11,528 passengers carried.
Salmon Arm Electoral District.
Roads.—There was no new construction undertaken during the year.
Two miles west of Salmon Arm, % mile of Trans-Canada Highway was improved
to width of 36 feet, regraded and gravel-surfaced.
At Tappen C.P.R. Crossing on the same highway improvement was effected by
filling on east approach.
Also on the Trans-Canada Highway, a dangerous corner east of Notch Hill was
improved and 3 miles at Balmoral were regraded and gravelled.
On the other roads gravelling was the main work undertaken.
Bridges.—No new structures were built. The old and condemned bridge over the
South Thompson River at Shuswap, 1,748 feet in length, was successfully removed.
Various repairs were made to other bridges.
Ferries.—The ferry " G. B. Wright " was hauled out at Scotch Creek for inspection by Dominion Inspector and repairs made as ordered.
Sicamous Ferry operated until the end of December.
The ferry to Seymour Arm from Sicamous was operated throughout the year.
Snowfall.—There was only one heavy fall of snow, on December 24th and 25th,
when from 20 to 30 inches fell. Light falls of from 3 to 6 inches followed at intervals
but, after the initial snow-ploughing, traffic was not much affected.
Revelstoke Electqral District.
Maintenance of Roads.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and
tributary roads, a number of culverts were renewed, accumulated debris was removed
from the shoulders over long sections, gravelling and weed-cutting were carried out by
tax-workers.
Bridges.—Five bridges were redecked and one rebuilt and minor repairs to several
others. No major work was undertaken, due to lack of skilled workers and difficulty
in obtaining materials.
Surfacing.—No surfacing was carried out.
Construction.—Considerable reconstruction was accomplished under the direction
of the Federal Department of Mines and Resources, several miles being now in use by
the public.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was much below the average. All roads were kept
open with the exception of the Big Bend Highway. DISTRICT REPORTS. Q 21
North Okanagan Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all highway and tributary
roads, consisting of minor improvements, grading, repairing of culverts, and renewal,
cutting of weeds, drainage, and gravelling. Full advantage was taken of the tax-
workers, who contributed to the maintenance considerably. Maintenance and repairs
increased during the past year, due to the very heavy traffic of army vehicles, causing
considerable damage to culverts, small bridges, and the hard surface, particularly the
edges and shoulders.
Surfacing.—Gravel:   Major renewal;   5.25 miles of road were gravelled.
Bituminous: A total of 1.85 miles of single spray-coat was applied on the Trans-
Canada Highway No. 1 and 10.13 miles applied over the existing mulch surface on the
Okanagan Highway No. 5. On the Vernon-Edgewood Highway No. 6, 3.7 miles"of
bituminous spray-coat surface reverted to gravel, due to realignment and grade improvements. Patching as required was done on the Trans-Canada, Okanagan, and
Vernon-Edgewood Highways.
Construction.—On Okanagan Highway No. 5, 0.7 mile of heavy construction
commenced in the last fiscal year was completed, included was a standard cedar underground cattle pass; an additional 0.8 mile of widening and grade revision was also
completed. Three and seventh-tenths miles of major improvement of widening and
grade revision on the Vernon-Edgewood Highway No. 6 was commenced and 0.25
mile of realignment and grade revision at the approaches to Cherry Creek Bridge on
Sugar Lake Road was completed during the year. This consisted of replacement of
the 160-foot Cherry Creek Bridge pile-trestle approach by culvert and fill.
Bridges.—Essential repairs were made on all bridges requiring attention, and
two medium-size bridges reconstructed. The painting of the new Enderby Bridge
was also carried out. Major repairs done on Grindrod and Baxter Bridges. Complete
new deck on two bridges at Shuswap Falls.
Snow-removal.—While the snowfall was not so heavy as some past winter's, our
crews worked fairly steady and all important roads were kept open, causing very little
inconvenience to the travelling public. No attempt was made to keep open the Vernon-
Edgewood Road No. 6 through the Monashee Pass.
South Okanagan Electoral District.
Roads.—Reconstruction of a section of Okanagan Highway near Postill was commenced in December. The work carried out consisted principally of clearing in preparation for grading operations to be commenced in the spring.
Joe Rich Road and McCulloch Road were improved by widening, ditching, and
gravelling. Existing culverts were renewed where necessary and additional ones
installed where required to improve drainage.
Considerable work was done to improve the channels of Mission and Sawmill
Creeks. The floods which occurred in May, 1942, had left many obstructions in the
channels and these had to be removed to prevent flooding of roads adjacent to the
streams. Channels were widened, banks sloped and, in some cases, diversions made to
straighten the channels.
Bituminous work carried out consisted of 0.73 mile mulch resurface and 8.53 miles
of single respray.
All roads were maintained in good condition and many minor improvements made.
Snowfall was lighter than usual and less ploughing was necessary, but this was
offset to some extent by the additional sanding required.
Bridges.—Three bridges—Camp Creek No. 4, Miller and Mill Creek No. 3—
were renewed and four others—Mission Creek No. 2, Mission Creek No. 4, Powers Q 22 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
Creek No. 1, and Ellison overhead—were refloored. The steel beams, guard-rail, and
hand-rail of Ellison overhead and the steel beams "of Mission Creek No. 2 were painted.
All counter-braces in the King-truss span of Mission Creek No. 1 and two in Mission
Creek No. 4 were renewed.    Minor repairs were made to other bridges.
Ferries.—M.S. " Pendozi " operated throughout the year without delay to traffic.
Owing to restricted travel the usual change in schedule for the summer months was
again found unnecessary and the winter schedule was maintained throughout.
Similkameen Electoral District.
Roads.—General maintenance of all roads was carried out in a satisfactory manner.
Minor improvements were made on the Okanagan Highway at Mile 113, where a bad
curve was eliminated. Four thousand five hundred cubic yards of rock were blasted
and the material used to realign 800 feet of roadway to a width of 30 feet and a fill
to a maximum depth of 7 feet. This was gravelled, surfaced, and given a light cover-
coat of oil.
Since the construction of the airport at Princeton a dangerous condition has
developed near the Tulameen Bridge. The road at this point is along the toe of a
steep hill, the formation of which is coal shale topped with gravel. There has always
been water-seepage here, but since the airport was built the accumulation of ice and
snow on the field melts in the spring, getting through the loose soil to the shale,
causing the gravel to slide on to the road. A reinforced-concrete pipe culvert with a
steel grating at its inlet has been installed to take care of the water. The gravel has
to be removed at intervals until the hill comes to the resting-point. All large boulders
have been removed, thus preventing the cause for any immediate danger.
Bridges.—All existing bridges were repaired or constructed as outlined in the
Bridge Inspector's report; those removed being replaced with reinforced-concrete
culvert-pipe and fill.
The old Great Northern Railway Bridge crossing the Similkameen River at Princeton and which is 402 feet long was redecked with cross-ties and 4- by 12-inch decking
plank. The bridge is now used as a highway bridge to replace Copper Mountain
Bridge No. 1, which is unsafe for heavy traffic.
Snow-removal.—All necessary highways and rural roads were kept clear of snow,
and hills and other places made dangerous by ice conditions were sanded.
ENGINEERING   DISTRICT   No.   5   (CRANBROOK,   FERNIE,   AND   COLUMBIA
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Cranbrook Electoral District.
General.—Heavy frost during the previous winter caused considerable damage to
some sections of pavement; patching was carried out and some of the worst sections
were back-filled with selected material preparatory to relaying the asphalt-mulch
surface.
Further construction was undertaken on the Waldo-Newgate Road and 6 miles
of this new road were gravelled prior to the dismantling of the bridge over the Kootenay
River at Newgate.
General maintenance was carried out on roads throughout the district and a number 'Of culverts were renewed.
Bridges.—A 285-foot pile-trestle bridge was constructed over Gold Creek on the
Waldo-Newgate Road, replacing an old structure that was damaged by high water.
Repairs were carried out on twenty-four bridges throughout the district. DISTRICT REPORTS. Q 23
Snow-removal.—The snow-removal was exceptionally light, it was only necessary
to plough 85.3 miles of road at a cost of $3.75 per mile. The ploughs covered 755 snow-
plough miles.
Fernie Electoral District.
General Maintenance.—All travelled roads in the district were well maintained,
considerable attention being given to flush-coat and gravelling.
The paved section of Chipman Avenue in Fernie, on the Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway, approximately 1,000 feet in length, was reconstructed.
Considerable work was done on the Corbin Road to assist in the hauling of coal
from the Corbin mines. Thirteen new creosoted wood-stave pipe culverts were installed
and running decks added to six bridges. Approximately 4,000 cubic yards of gravel
were applied.
Surfacing.—On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, between the Alberta
Boundary and Fernie, 11.45 miles were spray-coated.
Continuing the previous year's work, several bad places in the subgrade west of
Natal were removed and replaced with suitable material.
Several sections of spray-coat between Crowsnest and Michel and also between
Fernie and Elko were returned to gravel. These sections were beyond repair and in
many places the subgrade will require considerable attention before these surfaces
can be retreated.
Bridges.—Chipman Avenue Bridge in Fernie was reconstructed; major repairs
to Little Fairy Creek Bridge and the two truss bridges over the Elk River at Fernie
were reinforced.    Some smaller bridges were redecked.
A new suspension foot-bridge was built at Michel across Michel Creek to replace
the old Howe truss which was removed. Eddy's Bridge above Michel was also dismantled and the suitable timber used for other purposes. Major repairs were made
to one pier of Hosmer Bridge and the pier protected by quarry rock.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall during the past winter was light for this district, but
ice conditions were very bad, sanding operations on all main roads being carried on
almost continuously.
Columbia Electoral District.
The work carried out in the district consisted mainly of maintenance of roads and
bridges. Considerable trouble was encountered during the spring run-off on the south
end of the Kootenay-Columbia Highway between Windermere and Canal Flats. An
unusually heavy snowfall for that part of the country, followed by a two-day chinook
wind, caused a run-off that exceeded the capacity of the culverts, with the subsequent
washing-out of the road-bed where the fills were deep enough to allow them to back
the water up. Larger culverts were installed and gravel-fills made in place of the local
material originally used.
With the exception of the washouts, the paved portion of the Kootenay-Columbia
Highway between Radium Junction and the south boundary of the district came
through the winter well. Farther north the gravelled road between Radium Junction
and Golden heaved badly and required considerable grading and gravelling to get it in
condition to handle traffic.
The Big Bend section was opened to traffic on May 22nd; the lighter traffic of the
preceding year made it easier to get this road in shape.
The Kicking Horse Canyon gave a lot of trouble during the year. Cloudbursts
took "the roads out in several places and in one case held up railway traffic. Cribs had
to be replaced and mud-slides on one 3-mile section are a bugbear. Culverts on this
road were replaced to the limit of our funds, but much more needs to be done in this
connection. Q 24 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
Bridges.—The usual maintenance-work on bridges was carried out and our construction programme, included one stringer bridge 80 feet long over North Salmon;
one pile-bent structure 200-feet long over Toby Creek near Athalmer, and one other
pile bridge 360 feet long 60 per cent, completed on March 31st over the Columbia River
at Brisco.
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions in the Columbia District were the lightest for
years, but ice conditions were extremely bad and a considerable expenditure had to be
made on both the Kootenay-Columbia Highway and the Golden-Field Road to enable
traffic to continue. With the exception of the Big Bend Road to Revelstoke, which was
closed for the winter, and the Golden-Field Road for short periods when ice conditions
made travelling treacherous, the other main roads were kept open during the winter.
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.—Major construction was not extensive, and was confined to two sections
of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway—one on the Nelson-Castlegar section, the
other on the Erickson-Kitchener section.
On the Nelson-Castlegar section Taghum Hill was completed except for final
grading and the application of an asphaltic-mulch surface.
On the Erickson-Kitchener section between Arrow Creek and Goat River the
standardization was continued about % mile on permanent line, width, and grade.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Severe frost-damage again occurred to old spray-coat
surfaces where the road-bed had not been standardized and poor subgrade conditions
existed on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.
Between Castlegar and Balfour 2.46 miles of recapping and 4.52 miles of respray-
ing were done. On the Nelson-Nelway Highway the- 4 miles of asphaltic mulch
between Salmo and the Sheep Creek Road were seal-coated.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall being light, little difficulty was experienced in maintaining continuity of traffic, and the cost per mile was less than one-half of that of
the previous year.
Bridges.—The greater part of bridge-work consisted of ordinary maintenance,
except the Brilliant Suspension Bridge over the Kootenay River, where the northerly
trestle approach was replaced by embankment as far as possible and a new deck system
of ties and longitudinal flooring was placed.
On the Creston Flats three new single-span bridges were constructed over the
drainage-ditch.
River-bank Protection.—Channel correction and bank-protection were extended on
the Goat River above the creosoted truss bridge on the Creston-Porthill Road, and have
proved effective in the protection of the bridge and road.
Ferries.—All ferries operated continuously and efficiently throughout the year.
The West Creston Ferry was brought in, pulled out on the C.P.R. shipways at
Nelson and completely overhauled. Service was maintained during overhaul by the
Nelson auxiliary barge propelled by a power-boat.
On the Kootenay Lake Ferry, S.S. " Nasookin," a reduction steering-gear was
installed and proved quite efficient. The winter schedule was retained on the Kootenay
Lake Ferry service and no difficulty was found in accommodating the traffic.
The Nelson Ferry service was reduced to one-half hour service instead of twenty
minutes, with twenty-minute service on holidays and week-ends only, proving quite
satisfactory and decidedly economical. Southern Trans-Provincial Highway at Moyie Lake.

VICTORIA, B. C.  DISTRICT REPORTS. Q 25
By reason of an unprecedented low-water elevation in Kootenay Lake and the West
Arm it became necessary to carry out dredging operations on the Longbeach side of
the Harrop-Longbeach Ferry run. This 'was successfully done by a hoist, mounted on
the ferry-barge, operating a drag-line scraper.
Garage.—All repair-work was carried out in an efficient and expeditious manner.
A carpenter-shop and storeroom were built and both have supplied a long-felt need.
Surveys.—On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway two major location surveys
were completed under the supervision of H. L. Hayne, Chief Location Engineer; one
from Taghum Bridge to Nelson City Boundary, a distance of 5 miles, the other from
North Nelson ferry-landing to 6-Mile Road, a length of over 6 miles. These surveys
were made through well settled and developed areas and entailed much care and
precision.
A location survey was also made on the same highway from Goat River to Arrow
Creek and a section has since been constructed!
Grand Forks-Greenwood Electoral District.
Roads.—No major construction was undertaken, but a marked improvement was
achieved on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway on the 12-mile section between
Grand Forks and Cascade, where all low sections were raised to a proper elevation above
water-table and unsuitable subgrade conditions by hauling in suitable pit-run gravel
and afterwards surfacing with crushed gravel and the application of a double spray-
coat of asphalt and excellent cover-stone. This was made possible by the use of a modern rock-crusher operated successfully at the Gilpin pit purchased by the Department.
Three miles of this section were treated in this manner and an additional mile
was given a single spray-coat with very satisfactory results.
Good stock-piles were made at the Gilpin pit for future use, consisting of some
7,000 cubic yards of crushed gravel and 500 cubic yards of cover-stone.
On the Hammer Hill section of the same highway, west of Grand Forks, 2 miles
were gravelled with selected material; and minor betterments were carried on in the
Eholt section.
At the C.P.R. undercrossing, 1 mile east of Greenwood, a considerable improvement was accomplished by excavation in solid rock, resulting in improvement of visibility and greater safety to the travelling public.
The great mileage of gravelled roads in this district was well maintained.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A double spray-coat was applied to the improved sections
of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway between Grand Forks and Cascade and a
single spray-coat on two weak sections, a total length of 4 miles. On the Cascade-
Laurier Road 1 mile was given similar treatment.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was heavier than usual and some difficulty was experienced, but all roads were kept open except the Rossland-Cascade section, which was
allowed to close in December.
Bridges.—No major bridge-work was necessary, but a very considerable amount
of maintenance-work was done on many bridges.
River-bank Protection.—New shear-booms were constructed on the main Kettle
River above the Howe-truss bridge below Cascade and at the Rock Creek Bridge over
the West Fork of the same river.
Kaslo-Slocan Electoral District.
Roads.—No major work was carried out during the year. Highways were well
maintained, tax labour being put to good advantage in maintenance and general
improvement.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Work of only minor character was carried out. Q 26 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was the lightest in this district for many years;
very little difficulty was experienced from snow-slides .and, with a very mild spring
breakup, our roads came out in good shape. ■
Bridges.—Only two new bridges were constructed during the year; a new 60-foot
King truss was constructed over Glacier Creek in the Lardeau District, and a 50-foot
King truss was constructed over Ten-mile Creek, on the Slocan-Arrow Lakes Highway.
General maintenance was carried out on all other bridges needing attention.
River-bank Protection.—Channel correction was done on Carpenter Creek above
the Howe-truss bridge on the Slocan-Arrow Lakes Highway in the Village of New
Denver, and was quite effective when the spring freshet occurred.
Ferries.—Our two ferries, one at East and West Arrow Park and the other at
Needles-Fauquier, gave excellent service, running continuously throughout the year
without interruption.
Rossland-Trail Electoral District.
Roads.—The construction programme was on a minor scale, and that which was
carried out was with a view of giving all-weather access to settlers and those employed
at Trail.
With this in view a new road 1,150 feet in length was graded and gravelled in the
Fruitvale area, and because of the Columbia River bank erosion a necessary relocation
was made and construction carried out of 1,350 lineal feet of new road on the Trail-Fort
Sheppard Road to ensure access for the settlement at Casino Creek.
A great improvement was made to the Trail-Salmo Road, where a 3-mile section
was gravelled south of Fruitvale, and a mile of the Fruitvale Townsite roads was
gravelled at the same time. The material used was screened gravel of excellent quality
from the Beaver Falls pit, which was purchased by the Department in 1942.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The only work of this nature was carried out on the
Schofield Highway between Warfield and the cemetery. This consisted of a seal-coat
with non-skid surface of excellent cover-stone.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was not heavy but ice conditions were bad, and while
there was no great difficulty in maintaining continuity of traffic a great deal of sanding was necessary as ice conditions were constantly recurring.
The Rossland-Cascade section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway was
allowed to close in December and so remained throughout the winter.
Bridges.—Work under this heading consisted principally of maintenance, although
two bridges were replaced by culverts and fills. The usual maintenance-work was
carried out and certain bridges were reinforced by additional bents and stringers to
enable them to carry heavier traffic with safety.
Ferries.—The Castlegar Ferry operated successfully and continuously throughout
the year with no serious break in the service. This ferry carries a great volume of
traffic and is an integral part of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 6  (LILLOOET AND CARIBOO
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, 0. P. Roberts, Williams Lake.
Lillooet Electoral District.
Roads.—General maintenance was carried out throughout the district on all roads.
Maintenance-work and minor betterments were carried out well into the late fall due
to favourable weather conditions.
Construction and Reconstruction.—Nothing of major importance to report. Some
minor reconstruction was carried out on the Kelly Lake-Canoe Creek Road north of DISTRICT REPORTS. Q 27
Jesmond, also on the Botanie Creek and Lillooet-Clinton Roads. On the latter road a
large cribbing was constructed and the alignment improved at Fountain Creek. A few
miles of gravel resurfacing were done north of Watch Lake and on the 57-Mile-
Williams Lake Road.
Bridges.—There was no major construction or reconstruction. The Washout
(Mamquam) Bridge west approach was realigned with three 32-foot heavy log stringer-
spans being added. Six smaller structures were rebuilt and fifty structures received
attention, with four bridges redecked with tie and longitudinal decks.
Ferries.—Ferries were maintained and the reconstruction of the Big Bar Ferry
completed. Plank approaches were lengthened to extreme low-water stage at the
Lytton Ferry. The material for the reconstruction of the High Bar Ferry was
obtained with difficulty late in the season. The inside pontoon frames alone were
framed before the end of the year.
Surfacing.—A small amount of patching only.
Flood-control.—The Squamish River Channel Diversion at Murphy's Bend was
successfully completed. The channel is 2,400 feet in length. It was cleared 500 feet
in width or a total of 27 acres. Chris Nygaard, Squamish, had the contract. The
excavation was 60 feet in width and 10 feet in depth. This work was done by the
Sumas Dyking Commission's drag-line, two dulldozers being employed to move back
the excavated material. The project was carried out under good weather conditions
and was completed in early October. The new channel met every expectation and
came through the moderate winter and spring floods very well. In addition to the
above, Pemberton Avenue, which acts as a dyke, was raised 2 or more feet and both
the travelled portion and the dyke west of Cleveland Avenue were well drained on the
inside by a ditch with culverts and flood-gates. The Squamish Valley Road was raised
opposite the Carson Ranch, also a large cedar culvert was installed between the Newport Hotel and Yarwood's Drug Store on Main Street. A new powder-magazine was
constructed a short distance from the Department garage to store powder for use in
flood-control.
At Pemberton, brush and rock mattresses were laid at a number of points on the
Lillooet River. The far channel at Girling's Bend was blasted with propagation
powder which started a new channel which resulted in the silting-up of the main
channel, reducing the erosion at that point. The Lillooet River generally shows an
improved condition.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal averaged about the same as the previous year;
419.4 miles were kept open with a total of 3,760 snow-plough miles. The average cost
per mile kept open being $16.98.
North Cariboo Electoral District.
General Maintenance and Minor Betterments.—General maintenance was carried
out on all trunk and main roads throughout the district as well as many of the side-
roads. Improvements in the way of widening and ditching were made and 5 miles
of Fraser Road were gravelled.
A short revision was made at Trout Creek, improving alignment.
No major projects were undertaken.    Again farmers worked out their taxes.
Ferries. A new 10-ton reaction ferry was built for Soda Creek; general maintenance and repairs were carried out on the four ferries.
Bridges.—Maintenance and general repairs were carried out on all bridges. Chubb
and Allcock Bridges were replaced by culverts and fills.
Snow-removal.—The main roads were kept open. Q 28 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
South Cariboo Electoral District.
Maintenance.—All roads were maintained during the year.
Construction and Reconstruction.—Deka Lake-Canim Lake: These two lakes were
connected by 14 miles of new construction, giving access to Wells Gray Park.
Williams Lake-57-Mile: Fifteen miles were reconditioned, including new diversions of 3% miles, and gravelled to improve access to the new airport at Dog Creek.
Redstone-Chezacut:   Seven miles reconstructed.
Bridges.—Besides the construction of 178 lineal feet of new standard pile trestle,
the most important work of the year consisted in renewing the floor-beams in the
suspension bridge over the Fraser River.
Snow-removal.—During the winter 6,851 snow-plough miles were covered. The
average cost per mile kept open was $17.
Buildings.—A new workshop and garage was built to standard in Williams Lake,
replacing that destroyed by fire the previous year. A four-bay garage was erected
adjacent to the Court-house to accommodate police cars. The Court-house was redecorated outside.    All other Government buildings were kept in repair.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 7  (PRINCE RUPERT, ATLIN, AND
SKEENA ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
District Engineer, J. C. Brady, Prince Rupert.
Skeena Electoral District. ,
Labour.—Although there was sufficient labour to carry out the year's programme
it was far from plentiful.
•Highway Maintenance.—Roads throughout the district were maintained during
the year. Settlers working out taxes kept many farm and settlement roads in good
repair. Maintenance crews spread 15,715 cubic yards of gravel on roads during the
year. Considerable assistance has been received from the Army and R.C.A.F. at
Terrace in gravelling roads damaged by military traffic.
Highway Construction.—A reconstruction project at Mile 224.5 on the North
Trans-Provincial Highway No. 16 was completed.
Six miles of Kitwanga Valley Road No. 40 were widened and gravelled to take
care of the increased traffic.
Approximately 90 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway are under
construction by the Federal Department of Mines and Resources between the boundary
of Prince Rupert-Skeena Districts and Kitwanga.
Mining-trails.—Assistance was given towards the improvement of one mining-trail
during the year.
Bridges.—Glacier Creek Bridge No. 44 was completed.
A new framed trestle bridge at Mission Creek was built on a new site.
Smithers Bridge No. 98 was replaced with a new bridge of three 140-foot Howe-
truss spans on sheathed pile piers with concrete abutment walls. The new bridge is a
little down-stream from the old one. The approach fills were not completed owing to
the frozen ground.
Four other bridges were reconstructed during the year, replacing structures that
had exceeded the safe life of the bridges. Forty-six other bridges were repaired or
otherwise maintained during the year.
Ferries.—Necessary repairs to all ferries, towers, and equipment were carried out
during the year.
Improvements were carried out at the Kitwanga ferry-house and the Usk ferry-
house. Cariboo Road, near Soda Creek, looking north.
Kootenay-Columbia Highway, north of Canal Flats.  DISTRICT REPORTS. Q 29
Four new rowboats were built in the Terrace yard and one landing pontoon for
Usk Ferry was also built.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Necessary patching was carried out on Secondary Highway 58b, Smithers, and Secondary Highway 67b, Terrace.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall throughout the district was generally light. More
frequent falls than usual kept the snow-ploughing equipment busy; 333 miles were
kept open for a total of 2,510 snow-plough miles.
Surveys.—Preliminary surveys were made on North Trans-Provincial Highway for
2 miles north of Smithers and location surveys for 2.25 miles in connection with the
relocation of the approaches for the new Smithers Bridge. On Kalum Road No. 43 surveys were made for four new bridge-sites in connection with the bridge-reconstruction
programme.    While on Lakelse Lake Road No. 52 one new bridge-site was surveyed.
Prince Rupert Electoral District.
Prince Rupert and Vicinity.—Roads.—No. 9 Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
has had considerable crushed gravel put on, especially Miles 2, 3, 4, and 5. The
remainder was maintained and kept in good condition in spite of the exceptionally
heavy traffic, chiefly military.
No. 3 Cow Bay Road has been kept in good repair. Bituminous mulch has been
added whenever necessary.
No. 66 Dodge Cove Road had ditches cleaned, brush cut, and road repaired where
necessary.
Port Simpson has had some maintenance on all roads; one culvert renewed and
plank road to hospital rebuilt.
Approaches to the Court-house have been resurfaced with crushed rock and cinders.
Bridges.—Galloway Rapids Bridge No. 68: Maintenance was kept up on this
bridge for the greater part of the year. Finally, complete renewal of the deck was
undertaken with extra stringers and ties, decking being put on longitudinally. New
railing and wheel-guards are of heavier material than formerly used. This reconstruction was two-thirds completed, approximately, at the end of the fiscal year. Traffic on
this bridge is very heavy. Two piers at the west end, where concrete was disintegrating, were repaired with 6 cubic yards of concrete.
Osland bridges had considerable repairs and are in good condition.
Oona River bridges are in good repair. Some work was done on the lift span;
new pulley and cable being put in and also one new brace.
The easterly part of Prince Rupert Wharf, occupied by the fish-packing houses,
has been consistently repaired. Shed No. 1 had front of building raised and new
stringers and decking put in where necessary. No. 3 Shed had work done raising
front of building; new stringers and decking added. Ice-house door was also renewed
with new sills underneath at back. Shed No. 5 had new winch-house built; also new
floor (double) in ice-house;   studding and walls renewed where necessary.
On Cow Bay Floats the ramp was practically rebuilt and decking repaired. Four
new floats were built around the crib dolphins.
At Salt Lakes Floats repairs were made to ramp and landing.
Buildings and Grounds.—Court-house grounds are gradually getting back in shape
after removal of United States equipment being stored there. New cinder and sand
walk was put in where machinery units had ruined the strip of lawn before the flowerbeds. Trees have been moved from the shrubbery at the back and replanted in front.
In Block 21, the Health Unit Building has had a lot of work done remodelling and
installing sinks, basins, and furnishings. The whole interior was painted. The Red
Cross rooms in the same building had linoleum laid in the work-room. All fencing
around this block was practically renewed. Q 30 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
Plant and Equipment.—Tools are all in good condition. Caterpillar R.D. 6 had
complete overhaul and was shipped to Skeena District. Compressor C-10 and jackbit
grinder are O.K. Power unit G-29-E was scrapped on order of Equipment Inspector.
Hoist F-9 was completely overhauled and is now in good condition. Ford S-465 had
complete overhaul and reconditioned engine installed. Truck S-170 had reconditioned
engine installed and brakes relined.
Queen Charlotte Islands (South End).—Skidegate-Tlell Road No. 24: Work was
continued on the half-mile diversion at Mile 21.5. Owing to the scarcity of labour only
intermittent work could be done and the diversion is not yet quite finished.
Skidegate-Queen Charlotte City Road No. 25 requires widening, but only maintenance to the surface could be done this year.
Road No. 8—part of the proposed road from Port Clements to Masset. Owing to
inability to get labour and proper equipment, no further work was done on Dunroe
Hill except to make a temporary passage-way for a small truck. There remains about
3,000 cubic yards to be excavated and placed in the fill to complete this diversion.
Bridges.—Some further work was done on the approaches of the new bridge at
Miller Creek. The main span of 50-foot King truss has yet to be erected. Bridge-
men could not be obtained to do this and necessitated postponement. Minor repairs
were made to other bridges.
Queen Charlotte Islands (North End).—Roads.—A survey and plan were made to
take up with the Indian Department a proposed diversion in Masset Indian Reserve
between- Mile 1.2 and Mile 1.9, to do away with the present plank road and place the
location on better ground for an earth and gravel road. Some clearing was done on
this diversion.
Masset-Tow Hill Road No. 5: A survey and plan were made for an improved
location of the road" in the vicinity of Tow Hill from Mile 15.25 to Mile 16.25. The
present road is too close to Tow Hill and is subject to mud-slides. Plans are now
ready for the reconstruction of this road from Mile 14.25 to Mile 16.25.
Extra heavy traffic between Mile 1.6 and Mile 4.5 (Chown Point) has necessitated
renewal of the running planks and the lumber was ordered and the work commenced.
Bridges.—Surveys and plans were completed for Sangan River and Chown Slough
bridges and the work authorized will be commenced as soon as the material is all on the
ground and bridgemen can be procured. Considerable strengthening had to be done to
Sangan River Bridge to make it safe until the new one can be built.
Hiellen Bridge had some repairs. A survey was made of a new site for this
bridge in preparation for the time when it will have to be renewed within a few years.
Atlin Electoral District.
South Atlin.
Bear River Protection.—The present trend of this river is straight across the
valley from east to west, from a point near the foot of the Silverado slide. An effort
was made to divert the course into an old channel on the east side. Part of the old
bed was cleared and three new channels totalling 275 by 12 feet were dug. Some of
debris at the foot of the slide was cleared and three short dams of rock and gravel constructed, totalling 175 feet. Six hundred and twenty-two cubic yards were excavated
and 200 cubic yards of material used in the wing-dams.
Roads.—Alice Arm Streets No. 146: Renewed 105 lineal feet of sidewalk; 210 feet

ELECTORAL DISTRICT).
District Engineer, J. W. Miers, Prince George.
Fort George Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—As far as possible the necessary maintenance was
carried out on all travelled roads, but considerable difficulty was experienced in keeping
these in satisfactory condition. This was partly due to labour shortage and partly to
the large increase in volume and weight of truck traffic, both industrial and military.
The 4-mile section of the Cariboo Road between the Fraser River Bridge and the airport was particularly difficult to maintain, but excepting for a few days in the early
spring it was kept in reasonably good condition throughout the season. The average
cost of maintaining these 4 miles was approximately $1,000 per mile, the major part
of which was expended on the hill section east of the Fraser River.
Highivay Reconstruction and Improvement.—No. 24 Chief Lake Road: A %-mile
section of this road between Mileages 13 and 14 north from Prince George was reconstructed to 22-foot road-bed width and gravelled. Two miles were regravelled between
Mileages 4 and 7.
No. 45 Kelly Road: Two miles were regraded to improve the drainage in order to
make it passable for heavy loads of lumber.
No. 58 Ness Lake: One and one-half miles of this road were regraded to a higher
standard.
No. 3 Northern Trans-Provincial Highway: In the late fall some work was
carried out on the Squirrel Creek Diversion, but owing to wet weather only a small
amount was accomplished. Q 32 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44..
No. 161 Central Avenue: One mile of this, which is the chief access road to the
Brigade Camp, was reconstructed to 34-foot road-bed width.
No. 26 Summit Lake: Three miles were regravelled from Mile 7 to Mile 10, Prince
George north.
No. 25 Cariboo Road: One-half mile was regravelled with screened gravel at Miles
277-278, Cache Creek north.
A road 2 miles in length was graded from the Summit Lake Road near Mile 22
to the China Clay Deposit on the Fraser River and a car-load of the clay was shipped
by the owner.
Bridges and Culverts.—The Canoe River Bridge on the Kamloops-Tete Jaune Road
was reconstructed on the old site, utilizing the truss-rods and other steel from the old
span and using hewn timber. This work cost approximately $1,000 and the bridge
will serve satisfactorily for a number of years. Repairs were carried out to a number
of other bridges and the floors of several were renewed. Timber was somewhat easier
to obtain than during the previous year, although the price was higher. Timber was
purchased to renew the floor of the Nechako River Bridge at Prince George with the
intention of doing this work in the early spring so as to disrupt traffic as little as
possible.
A considerable number of plank and timber culverts were renewed.
Ferries.—Service was maintained at Hansard, Miworth (Indian Reserve No. 3),
Isle Pierre, and Croydon. The Hansard Ferry operated from May until early October,
but during September some trouble was experienced with the sand-bar near the east
shore.    This bar has now scoured away and it is unlikely that it will reform.
Timber was obtained late in the fiscal year for a new and larger scow at Croydon
to be constructed during the fiscal year 1944-45.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was generally light, being approximately half normal.
The average cost of keeping 247 miles open was $9.54 per mile.
Omineca (East) Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—Maintenance of roads was carried out in the usual
manner. There still exists a serious labour shortage, and on account of this condition
it was impossible to carry out any extensive work programme. The local and settlement roads were maintained largely through farmers working out their taxes. The
only new construction-work to be undertaken was that of the new road into the Takla
mercury mine of Silver Creek.
Bridges.—Four bridges were reconstructed during the year and eighteen were
repaired. Materials for bridge maintenance and construction were almost impossible
to secure. Experienced bridgemen were also very scarce. This scarcity resulted in
very little bridge-work being undertaken.
Ferries.—All ferries operated throughout the season as usual.
Snow-removal.—All roads throughout the district were kept open during the
winter. Snowfall was somewhat lighter than usual. In all, 274 miles of road were
kept open, requiring 7,040 snow-plough miles;   the average cost per mile being $10.52.
Omineca (West) Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—The maintenance of all highways throughout the
district was carried out as usual. Farmers working out their taxes were largely
responsible for the maintenance of local and settlement roads. A labour shortage
which existed made it difficult to undertake any major works.
Highway-construction.—The Telkwa Collieries road was extended by y2 mile in
order to give access to the new coal property which was developed and opened up by a

this company on the west side of Goat Creek. This new property is now producing
and shipping about 50 tons per day.
The only other major undertaking was that of reconstruction of 1 mile in the
vicinity of Lowe's Ranch on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway at Mile 265. Wet
weather during the fall made it difficult to fully complete this work; about 75 per
cent, being finished.
Considerable gravelling was done on the Burns Lake-Babine Lake Road. This
road is now pretty well all gravelled and in excellent condition to meet the greatly
increased volume of traffic now using the road.
Bridges.—All bridges were maintained and considerable repairs were carried out.
Several small bridges were renewed.
Ferries.—Owing to an extremely mild winter the Francois Lake Ferry operated
throughout the winter months. The new wharf on the south side of Francois Lake
was completed in November.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was less than usual; 285 miles of road were kept open
at an average cost of $10.32 per mile.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8a  (PEACE RIVER DISTRICT).
District Engineer, F. J. Clark, Pouce Coupe.
Peace River Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—All roads in the district have been maintained under
difficulty, on account of extraordinary traffic caused by American Army vehicles loaded
from 5 to 25 tons. The main roads have been improved to a considerable extent by
raising grades, improving alignment, and installation of culverts.
A great amount of brushing, ditching, and widening has improved our farm roads.
This was worked out principally by tax work.
Grande Prairie-Fort St. John-Peace Pass Road No. 1: The first section from
Pouce Coupe to the Alberta Boundary, a distance of approximately 18 miles; culverts
have been retopped and four new ones installed, one small bridge replaced by a large
culvert; 5.4 miles brushed and 1.2 miles brought up to a higher standard by raising
grade.
Dawson Creek-Pouce Coupe: Small amount of gravel placed, and grade raised
y/% mile.    Ditches cleaned out and road widened where necessary.
Dawson Creek-Taylor: Several culverts renewed and from Kilkerran to Sweetwater the road was widened and brushed. The road from Ten-mile Corner for a distance of 12 miles has been replaced by the "Alaska Military Highway "; this 12-mile
section is used exclusively by our own traffic as the new suspension bridge over the
Peace River is in this section.
Taylor-Fort St. John: Renewed culverts, brushed 2.5 miles; the oversize gravel
which has been pushed off the road should be cleaned out of the ditches.
Fort St. John-Hudson Hope: Installed new culvert at Ardills Coulee and partly
finished grade at same location; graded 1.2 miles at Lynx Creek and installed bridge
over same;  brushed 5.4 miles.
Hudson Hope-Gold Bar: Graded 7.5 miles to aid mining operators, also cut grades
from 15 per cent, down to 7 per cent, in several locations; alignment was revised and
improved at what is known as the Corkscrew Hill. Clearing to the extent of 1.4 miles
was performed by the Department tractor and dozer.
Dawson Creek-Rolla-Clayhurst: Ditches cleaned, four culverts replaced, and grade
raised for a distance of 1.3 miles; 3.4 miles brushed between Doe River and Clayhurst
Ferry. Regraded 3 miles on the north bank of Peace River, the banks on this location
are sluffing and it will be some time before material is settled to the angle of rest. Q 34 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1943-44.
Road widened to a distance of 3.5 miles;   ferry approaches regraded and tops renewed
on several culverts.
East Pine-Moberly-Hudson Hope: Road widened for a distance of 6.5 miles, new
culverts installed, and clearing widened in where necessary. Bad holes filled up for
the whole distance;   raised grade in several bad sags in the road.
Sunset Prairie-Fort St. John: No grading done on this road, fence-posts were cut
as location for the first 2 miles through private property and new fences will be necessary.    The first 2 miles have been maintained.
East Pine-Commotion Creek: This road has been maintained and is in excellent
shape; new tops installed on three culverts; brushing on the north side of the Pine
River for a distance of 1.3 miles.
Fort St. John-Cecil Lake: Widened road on both sides of the Beatton River;
renewed several culverts; brushed 3.2 miles and deepened and cleaned ditches where
necessary. Cleared 6.4 miles between Cecil Lake Post-office and Clayhurst Ferry on
new road location.
Rose Prairie-North Pine-Fort St. John: Regraded 3.6 miles north of Fort St.
John, gravel was laid a distance of 3.5 miles north of Fort St. John and regraded at
Stoddard Creek and Montney Creek. This work was performed jointly by the Department of Transport and the Department of Public Works. Six new culverts installed
and several renewed north of North Pine.
Fort St. John-Montney and Murdale: Regraded 7.3 miles and brushed the same
distance; new tops laid on several culverts; ditches cleaned. This road should be
raised in several places, as American Army traffic has practically worn the road out.
Tupper Creek-Hays-Gundy: Road west of the school-house at Tait Creek has been
extended 2.5 miles from Hays Post-office to the Pouce Coupe River. Grade raised 3
miles; the ditches cleaned out and several culverts renewed; road raised from Pouce
Coupe River to the intersection of Highway No. 1 in several places.
Hanshaw-Upper Cut Bank-Arras: Diversion made to the river location along the
Kiskatinaw River. This is a much better location than the one at Spring Hill, as it
cuts down excessive gradients and has better alignment. Six miles regraded, new
culverts installed, brushing carried out for 3.1 miles, ditches cleaned where necessary.
Tax Work.—This work was general over all the district, but owing to shortage of
man-power taxes to the extent of 40 per cent, were paid in cash; however, a great deal
of valuable work was performed, particularly on farming roads.
Roads Generally.—Two roads were gravelled. The Hospital road in Dawson Creek,
and access road from the " Alaska Military Highway " to Fort St. John. This makes
a total of 89.6 miles of gravelled road in this district, not counting the Alaska Highway.
The road from Dawson Creek to Rolla needs another application of screened or
crushed gravel.
Bridges.—Three new bridges have been constructed this year—namely, Doe River,
Baldwin, and Lynx Creek—these are all pile structures. Numerous other bridges have
been redecked, and new stringers installed. Extraordinary traffic has put a heavy
strain on several structures, due to overloading by United States Army trucks and
equipment.
Ferries.—Taylor Ferry has been transferred to Clayhurst; the new suspension
bridge over the Peace River has replaced this ferry. The hull of this ferry has been
repaired and the engine overhauled at Vancouver.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was light, but owing to chinook conditions icing of roads
was extreme and sanding had to be carried out on all steep gradients. Traffic was
uninterrupted.
Maintenance of Government Buildings.—Buildings have been well maintained. CLASSIFICATION OF HIGHWAYS.
