REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., November 15th, 1945.
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 1944-45.
GENERAL OUTLINE OF WORK.
During the year highway-work was very greatly influenced by conditions surrounding the warfare in Europe and the Far East. At the beginning of the year under
consideration, the invasion of Europe had not commenced but was imminent, and full-
scale operations in the Pacific were considered as being a future operation, with the
result that all materials required and all labour possible was devoted to the national
interest, and the needs of the Provincial highway system were of secondary importance
regarding the availability of materials and labour.
The first objective of this Department was to maintain existing main highways in
their present condition; carry out such additional paving as was possible; and further
to maintain, improve, and reconstruct such highways, bridges, and ferries as was practicable until such time as new equipment, materials, and labour were made available.
Notwithstanding the conditions existing, the Department was able to construct
7 miles of new highway and undertake reconstruction over 77.37 miles of highway.
Hard-surfacing completed comprised some 216 miles, of which 21 miles were new surfacing and 95 miles comprised resurfacing. Gravel surfacing comprised 248.08 miles
of new gravel and 260.44 miles of renewal, and particular care was taken in the maintenance of surfaced roads to ensure prompt and efficient patching and maintenance.
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 all repair-
work was done promptly and in an efficient manner.
Particular attention was paid to survey-work in connection with undertakings that
will be commenced at the end of the war for general improvement of the British Columbia highway system, access roads to new settlements, and providing continued and
worth-while employment for returned men during the period of readjustment. The
mileage of surveys undertaken and their location are set out in detail in the report of
the Locating Engineer.
The Department has started the policy of installing rock-crushing plants in various
strategic locations throughout the Province so that there may be available at any time
for the purpose of road-construction, stock piles of crushed, screened, and washed
gravel. This procedure eliminates considerable delay where in the past it has been
necessary to locate a suitable gravel-pit before work commenced and, in some cases,
negotiate with the owner of the land upon which the gravel was situated.
A new site for a garage and equipment shed has been acquired in the town of
Princeton and other properties have been acquired in different parts of the Province
in order to expand the buildings and facilities maintained by the Department for the
proper servicing and storing of public works machinery. 0 6
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1944-45.
With a view to providing a fast and modern ferry transportation service connecting
the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway across the Kootenay Lake, plans and specifications were drawn up for a new modern Diesel-engine ferry to operate on the Kootenay
Lake to replace the existing S.S. " Nasookin."
HIGHWAY-CONSTRUCTION.
On Vancouver Island reconstruction of the Island Highway was commenced at
Oyster Bay near Chemainus, at Rough Creek on the Malahat Drive, and at Rosewall
Creek on the Island Highway. Six miles of new construction on the South Shore Road,
Cowichan Lake, was commenced and reconstruction by day-labour was carried out on
various sections of highways in the Esquimalt District. Foreshore-protection work
was also carried out at Jordan River. On the Trans-Canada Highway reconstruction
and improvement work was carried out in the Chilliwack Electoral District and Yale
Electoral District; at Hoffman's Bluff and Chase Hill in Salmon Arm District; and
7 miles of partially completed work were finished in the Revelstoke District. On the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway work was undertaken to eliminate two level crossings, and 2.2 miles of new road were constructed in this connection north of Osoyoos
and 8 miles of highway in the vicinity of Hedley were widened and improved. On the
Castlegar-Nelson section widening was undertaken at Brilliant, and the Taghum Hill
diversion was completed ready for surfacing and the highway through the City of
Grand Forks was reconstructed. Improvements were made in the vicinity of Gilpin
and the Rock Creek Canyon, and a trestle bridge was replaced by a permanent culvert
and embankment 5 miles east of Trail. In the Fernie District the highway through
west Fernie was reconstructed and the unpaved section between Michel and Crowsnest
was regraded and gravelled preparatory to hard-surfacing. On the Okanagan Highway
work was carried out at Postill, north of Enderby, and in the vicinity of Penticton.
On the Cariboo Highway 25 miles of reconstruction and gravelling were completed near
Williams Lake and 14 miles of new construction was commenced on the Deka Lake-
Canim Lake Road. On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway 3 miles of reconstruction were commenced south of Prince George and also 10 miles of reconstruction were
undertaken between Prince George and the Skeena District boundary and 1.5 miles of
reconstruction were undertaken in the Skeena District. Construction and reconstruction, widening and general improvement were carried out as necessary on the North
Thompson Highway, Kootenay-Columbia Highway, Nelson-Nelway Road, Nelson-Kaslo
Road, Slocan-Arrow Lakes Highway, Queen Charlotte Islands roads, etc. A detailed
statement of the various projects undertaken and the amount of work completed during
the year is included in this report.
SURFACING.
A total of 216 miles of new surfacing and resurfacing was completed during the
year on Provincial highways and details of the highways involved and the mileage
thereon are given in the report of the Surfacing Engineer.

Accompanying this report is a tabulation showing major projects in progress or
undertaken during the year, including mining-road projects, and the progress made.
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,
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.
No abnormal flood conditions occurred during the year and no serious damage of
any description was caused to Department's property or equipment. The diversion of
the Squamish River, undertaken the previous year by the Department as a flood-control
measure, proved to be entirely adequate and eliminated serious floodings in the vicinity
of Squamish where it had been a frequent occurrence in the past.
SNOW-REMOVAL.
Throughout the Province general snow conditions were normal or slightly below
normal, except in the vicinity of Grand Forks, Trail, Lillooet, Skeena, Omineca, Revelstoke, and Peace River. In the latter two places exceptionally heavy snowfall was
experienced and the Department's equipment was taxed to the limit to keep the main
highways open. Throughout the Province 6,943 miles of road were kept open by snow-
plough, involving a total of 100,124 snow-plough miles at an average cost of $25.50 per
mile kept open. During the previous year 6,517 miles of road were ploughed and kept
open at an average cost of $18.14 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 21,882 miles shows an increase of 76
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 512 miles of municipal highways classified as arterial, primary, or secondary.
The total mileage may be summarized as follows:—
Trunk and main highways     7,211.04
Local roads     5,637.16
Settlement, industrial, and mining roads     9,033.90
Total  21,882.10
In addition, there are 10,441.23 miles of trails on the registers, of which 6,159.38
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. 0 8
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1944-45.
PATTULLO BRIDGE.
There was a considerable increase over the previous year in the number of vehicles
crossing this bridge, with a corresponding increase in revenue. Traffic amounted to
2,008,642 vehicles and the revenue collected was $261,289.56.

MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT.
The report of the Mechanical Superintendent is attached, which gives a list of the
plant and machinery owned and operated by this Department during the fiscal year.
CLASSIFICATION OF HIGHWAYS  (PART IIL, "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, 1945, were as follows:—
Classified as arterial  334.44
Classified as primary     54.76
Classified as secondary :  122.89
Total  512.09
Such changes in classified highways as were made were duly reported in The
British Columbia Gazette, as required by the Statutes.
GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS.
The report of the Chief Architect, attached hereto, outlines the activities of the
Architectural Branch of the Department.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Revisions were made to the Department's standard specifications as were considered necessary, having regard to the difficult labour conditions and the necessity of
substituting certain materials and equipment that were not readily available and were
required for national purposes.
In certain localities adjacent to municipalities a great increase in the subdividing
of land is apparent, with the result that more particular attention had to be paid to the
requirements for road allowance shown on the plan submitted, so as to make allowance
for future improvements which, no doubt, will include the installation of drains, sewers, REPORT OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECT. O 9
sidewalks, water-mains, electric-light lines, and telephone-lines, and at the same time
provide ample width for vehicular traffic and entrances to private property.
In this connection the number of permits issued during the year for private
entrances and public utilities facilities shows a very considerable increase over a period
of years.
Correspondence comprised 38,726 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.

REPORT OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEER..
As in all of those war years that have passed, we have again found it difficult, and
sometimes impossible, to get the necessary bridges built or repaired due to the scarcity
of men, money, and materials.
The work that we have been able to do has, mostly in all instances, cost almost
double what it did in the years immediately prior to the war, and, as a consequence,
the amount of work which we have accomplished is considerably reduced. These are
the direct results of the increased cost of materials and labour and also, to some extent,
is due to the inefficient labour which it was necessary to employ.
During the past fiscal year a number of new bridges were built, amongst which
were the following: Third Crossing of Salmon River at Sayward; Sooke River at
Sooke; Lillooet Station over Cayoosh Creek; Second Crossing of Pine River near
Hassler Creek; and Sangan River and Chown Slough on Queen Charlotte Islands.
Mention is also made of the slipway, or marine ways, constructed at Kelowna. A more
complete list of the work done is given elsewhere in this Report.

REPORT OF THE MECHANICAL SUPERINTENDENT.
INSPECTION OF EQUIPMENT AND MACHINERY.
During the fiscal year 1944-45 every district in the Province was visited and the
equipment and machinery operated by the Department inspected. Due to the continued
difficulty, owing to war conditions, in replacing equipment and in many cases of being
able to procure parts or material for repairs, the problems of keeping the equipment
and machinery in good working order have greatly increased. The high standard of
work undertaken in our garages has been maintained in spite of the number of our
mechanics who are overseas.
The practice of sending units from outside districts to the Public Works garage at
Cloverdale for overhaul has been continued with good results, and a larger number and
more varied types of units have been dealt with.
NEW EQUIPMENT.
Purchases of new equipment amounting to approximately $209,000 were made
during the year. The equipment purchased included trucks, power-graders, tractors,
bulldozers, compressors, rock-crushers, wagon-drill, tar-kettles, automobiles, and a considerable quantity of garage equipment and tools. A quantity of obsolete and useless
machinery was advertised and sold, realizing approximately $50,000, which was invested
in modern and up-to-date equipment.
REPAIR-SHOPS AND EQUIPMENT-SHEDS.
The building of a new repair-shop at Williams Lake was completed and is being
fitted up with tools and equipment to make it a good serviceable garage. Shops are
urgently required at Rossland, Princeton, Quesnel, and Burns Lake. In addition to
the foregoing equipment, storage-sheds are required at Golden, McBride, Fort George,
New Denver, Westview, MacKenzie District, Nelson, Princeton, and Quesnel.
FERRIES.
All ferries owned and operated by the Department, including those chartered, were
inspected and detailed reports submitted, those coming under the " Canada Shipping
Act " being repaired and replacements made to comply with that Act.
Plans were started for a new steel ferry to replace the present ferry on the
Kootenay Lake.
Forty-four ferries were inspected and detailed reports submitted.
ROCK-CRUSHERS.
A system of setting up rock-crushing plants in various districts to crush rock for
road-building, repairs, and surfacing was started. Four such plants were set up and
operated in various parts of the Province; these plants not only crushing the rock, etc.,
required immediately but setting up stock-piles for future use before moving. The
results achieved in each case proved it to be a great success.

Surfacing Engineer.
REPORT OF THE LOCATING ENGINEER.
The location-work done in the fiscal year 1944-45 reached an all-time high as
regards mileage of location completed, number of men given employment, and expenditures. Four location parties worked on the Trans-Canada, Southern Trans-Provincial,
Cariboo Road, and the Island Highway. The Okanagan flood-control party organized
last season carried on into this year and five parties made the complete location of the
Peace River Road through the Pine Pass, a distance of 151 miles from Summit Lake to
Commotion Creek. This survey was through a country where no roads of any kind
existed and where all transportation has to be handled by back-packing, pack-horse,
plane, or by small boats on the Crooked, Pack, Parsnip, and Misinchinka Rivers.
The average location party through settled country averages about twelve men,
but on the Pine Pass survey parties ranged from twenty to twenty-eight, depending
on the means of transport. Work commenced between May the 4th and 10th and
continued to October 14th. All men on these parties worked ten hours and were paid
on this basis. Plans and estimates were prepared in Kamloops and were ready for
submission to Headquarters by March 31st, 1945. DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 13
A total of 363 men were given employment and the cost of all surveys up to March
31st was $258,000. This total included the purchase of key rights-of-way. A total
of 254 miles of location was staked and referenced and all plans and estimates completed ready to call for tenders.
In addition to the above parties a British Columbia Land Surveyor was employed
on a yearly basis to tie in and monument key rights-of-way purchased in connection
with major road surveys.
All instruments were inspected and, where necessary, repairs arranged.

Location Engineer.
DISTRICT REPORTS.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 1   (VANCOUVER ISLAND
AND THE ISLANDS).
District Engineer, 0. W. Smith.
Alberni Electoral District.
General.—Labour conditions in this district are very poor, it being impossible to
hire any men; consequently it has been difficult to maintain and carry on the work in
an economic and efficient manner.
Weather conditions were fairly good, there were no serious floods; only a very
light snowfall, no snow-ploughing was necessary.
Road Improvements.—Considerable gravelling was done on the Tofino-Ucluelet
Highway from the Airport to Tofino; 3 miles of Beaver Creek Road and 4 miles of
Central Lake Road were gravelled and ditched preparatory to surfacing this year.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Single respray work was carried out on the Canadian
Highway, Arterial Highway (Port Alberni), Beaver Creek, and Central Lake Road,
a total length of 8.95 miles.
Bridges.—The following bridges were reconstructed: Bayne, Fallwell, Marlow,
Neuk, and Trout. On the Tofino-Ucluelet Highway a start was made on replacing
with culverts and fills twenty-one small bridges. Owing to the shortage of labour this
work had to be closed down and is only 50 per cent, complete.
Cowichan-Newcastle Electoral District.
Road Improvements.—The reconstruction of South Shore Road from the Village
of Cowichan Lake to Honeymoon Bay, a distance of 6 miles, was completed; this work
was done by contract and was started last year. White Rapids Mine Road was constructed for a distance of 3.6 miles to serve the new coal-mine of the same name.
A start was made in January reconstructing the Arterial Highway 63R and the Island
Highway north of Ladysmith, Mile 58.41-59.94, a distance of 1.53 miles; the alignment
and grade is being greatly improved and is about 20 per cent, complete. Also on the
Island Highway a contract was let for the Oyster Bay Diversion, Mile 61.45-62.50,
a distance of 1.05 miles; this work involves complete reconstruction to bring the highway up to standard.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Cowichan Bay Road for a distance of 4.2 miles was constructed, widened, heavily reinforced with gravel, and surfaced with a double spray- O 14 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1944-45.
coat of asphalt. Cowichan Lake Road from the west boundary of North Cowichan
Municipality to Cowichan Lake, a distance of 15 miles, was resprayed single coat; the
same was done on the North Shore Road for a distance of 3 miles south of Youbou.
Owing to the shortage of asphalt the programme of this class of work had to be considerably curtailed.
Bridges.—Clem-Clem-Litz Bridge, 200 feet long, over the Cowichan River on
Tzouhalem Road was reconstructed with the exception of the King truss. A 177-foot
pile trestle, 12 feet wide, was constructed over Sutton Creek on the South Shore Road.
Connaught Bridge was replaced with culvert and fill. Six bridges having a total length
of 228 feet were renewed.    Maintenance was carried out on twenty-two other bridges.
Esquimalt Electoral District.
Highway Construction and Maintenance.—An extensive programme of reconstruction was carried out by day-labour. This included: Metchosin Road, 3.7 miles; Soake
Road, between Cooper's Cove and Sooke Village, 2.81 miles; Shawnigan Lake Road, 5
miles; Mill Bay Road, 4.5 miles; Halhead Road, 2 miles; Leigh Road, 0.5 mile; and
0.25 mile of the West Coast Road at Jordan River.
On the West Coast Road the sea-front at Jordan River was protected with a heavy
broken rock fill with heavy broken rock groins projecting out towards low water to
break the force of the waves.    Behind this protection the road was raised and widened.
A contract was let for the construction of the Rough Creek Diversion on the Island
Highway, the reconstruction of a heavy rock section at Mile 22, and for the construction of the remaining unbuilt section of the Shawnigan Lake West side road to connect
it with the Halhead Road. Work was started on all three of these contracts and considerable progress made on the Rough Creek job.
A 40-inch concrete culvert-pipe, 84 feet long, was installed under the Sooke Road
at Glen Lake Creek and all the old wooden culverts under the reconstructed roads were
replaced by reinforced concrete culvert-pipe of suitable diameter.
Resurfacing was carried out on 35.28 miles of road in this district. This included:
The Shawnigan Lake Road, 13.75 miles; Island Highway, 5.6 miles; Metchosin Road,
2.5 miles; Mill Bay Road, 4.7 miles; Halhead Road, 1 mile; the West Coast, 1.92 miles
from Sooke Village west; Sooke Road, 2.81 miles that had been reconstructed; View
Royal streets, 0.9 mile; Millstream, 0.68 mile; and Dunford Road, 0.5 mile. This
work was all done by contract, and, in addition to this, considerable work was done by
the Department's surfacing crew to renew short sections of surface on various roads.
One mile of the Island Highway was recapped in short sections. Surface maintenance
was carried out continuously, and the road surfaces kept in good condition throughout
the year.
Altogether, 34,000 cubic yards of run-of-pit gravel were built into the various road
bases during reconstruction, and 44,000 cubic yards of crushed gravel were used for
the finished surfaces. A stock-pile of 15,000 cubic yards of crushed material was made
at Saseenos to take care of future reconstruction in the Sooke area.
Bridges.—A new bridge was erected over the Sooke River on the Sooke Road,
a 180-foot creosoted wood Howe truss being used over the channel. Niagara Creek
Bridge, on the Island Highway, was given an entirely new deck. The King truss at
the north end of Jordan River Bridge was replaced by a trestle in order to permit heavy
logging traffic to make use of this road. Five bridges were replaced by suitable culverts. New decks were put on four bridges on the West Coast Road and timber
delivered at Coal Creek for a new bridge at that point. Major repairs to deck and
footings were made on thirteen other bridges in the district.
The ferry wharf at Mill Bay was maintained. DISTRICT REPORTS. O 15
The Langford garage and machinery storage building were completed. This added
greatly to the efficiency of the garage and also of the other work in the district.
Comox Electoral District.
Road Construction.—During the year the pioneer road built between Menzies Bay
and Sayward Valley was taken over by the Department and 8 miles of it gravelled
and widened.
Maintenance.—The surface of all roads was kept in fair condition all year, although
the bituminous surfacing has reached the stage where it requires more repairs than
other type of roads.
Bridges.—The deck and approaches of the Sayward Suspension Bridge were
renewed and towers reinforced. White River and Third Crossing Bridges were
renewed. Old logging bridges along the Sayward Road were planked for wheel traffic.
Englishman River Bridge was redecked and minor repairs made to many other bridges
in the district.
Ferries.—Denman Island Ferry operated satisfactorily all year.
The new garage and yard site was cleared, grubbed, partially graded, and a
drainage system installed.
Nanaimo and The Islands Electoral District.
General.—Weather conditions were fairly good throughout the year, heavy ground
frosts caused icy conditions on the surfaced roads, necessitating considerable sanding
over a long period in order to eliminate the traffic hazard created thereby. Two very
severe rainstorms occurred last winter, causing considerable flooding in the low-lying
areas and the flooding of basements; however, no serious damage occurred. The
shortage of labour is still acute, making it very difficult to carry out the work and give
the service the public expects.
Road Improvements.—St. George Street on Newcastle Townsite, Nanaimo, was constructed from Vancouver Avenue to Departure Bay Road. This necessitated laying a
24-inch reinforced-concrete pipe 200 feet long in a deep ravine and making a fill about
30 feet deep. On Vancouver Avenue, a double 14-ineh pipe under a 35-foot fill was
replaced with a 30-inch reinforced-concrete pipe. Fernwood Road, 0.75 mile, Rainbow
Road, 0.5 mile, and 1.5 miles of Beddis Road on Saltspring Island were reconstructed
and widened preparatory for surfacing this year.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Throughout the district 10.01 miles of various roads were
resprayed during the year.
Bridges.—Cusheon and Gibson Bridges, having a total length of 105 feet, were
replaced during the year; repairs were made to eight other bridges. Extreme shortage
of timber was experienced during the year and it was impossible to obtain any qualified
bridgemen.
Saanich Electoral District.
The work in Saanich consisted generally in maintenance of the existing roads.
Five miles of bituminous-surfaced roads were given asphalt and spray-coat and several
stretches on the East Saanich Road were recapped by the maintenance crew where the
road showed failure.    Ten miles of road were gravelled in North Saanich.
Drainage continued to be the most serious problem in the district, and 1,300 lineal
feet of concrete culvert-pipe and vitrified drain-pipe were installed to improve some of
the worst drainage problems. O 16 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1944-45.
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.
Bituminous Surfacing.-—No bituminous surfacing was undertaken this year.
Bridges.—Mill No. 1 and Mill No. 2 Bridges, Nos. 3-1 and 3-2 respectively, were
redecked.    New ties, floor, wheel-guards, and handrail were put on.
Snow-removal.—A mild winter was experienced and the snowfall was negligible.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance on roads was carried out, with emphasis on
the repair of bituminous surfaces.
Dewdney Electoral District.
Construction.—In Maillardville, on the Coquitlam Road 10R: The construction of
curbs and gutters and drainage structures, a continuation of last year's work, was
carried out for a distance of 900 lineal feet. This will widen the highway 10 feet. All
unsuitable material was removed from this area and a substantial gravel base laid.
loco-Port Moody Road No. 57R: Another mile of the narrowest section was
widened and five permanent culverts installed. This makes 2 miles in all ready for
asphaltic surfacing.
Eagle Road No. 59: This road was extended % mile. A 12-foot road-bed was
shaped up with the grader and a substantial coat of gravel was applied.
Hammond Loop No. 59R: Seven hundred lineal feet of covered drain, together
with necessary catch-basins, were constructed in Hammond Village in front of the
public school.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Double spray-coats with non-skid cover-stone were laid as
follows: (a) Sylvester Road No. 38, 1.2 miles; (b) Shook Road No. 40, 1.2 miles;
(c) Hammond Loop No. 59r, 2.1 miles; (d) Haney Loop No. 69R, 0.3 mile. (Note.—
(a) and (b) were new work;   (c) and (d) resurfacing.)
On the above work Tarvia " BI " was used for the primer and Tarvia "A7 " for
the seal-coat.
A mulch surface was laid in Maillardville on the Coquitlam Road No. 10R, 24 feet
wide, for a distance of 0.15 mile. The work consisted of recapping the existing surface
and widening it out to the curbs and gutters constructed last year.
Bridges.—Harrison River Bridge No. 40-131: The south approach of this bridge
(twenty-eight bays, 19 feet) was repaired as follows: Four lines of new stringers
throughout and new ties; floor and handrail installed.
Scott Creek Bridge No. 10-15: This bridge was replaced by an entirely new structure, consisting of three spans of pile trestle; bents on 19-foot centres, with a 24-foot
clear deck.
Youngston Bridge No. 10-92:   This received a new floor and handrail.
Edge Bridge No. 10-51:   New ties, floor, wheel-guards, and handrail.
Snow-removal.—A mild winter was experienced and the snowfall was negligible.
Maintenance.—The usual maintenance of roads was carried out, bituminous surface receiving special attention.
The section of the Trans-Canada Highway from Floods Crossing to the end of the
district at Silver Creek, a distance of 2.81 miles, was widened, ditched, and given a good
coat of pit-run gravel, after which a road-mixed asphaltic mulch was placed on it.
The surfacing of this section, together with that of the adjoining portion in Yale
District between Silver Creek and Hope, eliminates the last piece of gravelled road
between Vancouver and Ashcroft. zgim

Mackenzie (North) Electoral District.
Construction.—A few short subdivision roads were opened up for the benefit of
new residents.
Bridges.—Powell River Bridge No. 128: The old deck was replaced with new
stringers, ties, floor, and handrail.    Howe truss tightened up.
Lois Bridge No. Ill:   Truss tightened.
Bridges Nos. 87, 88, and 89—Martin Valley, Ocean Falls:   New decks.
Minor repairs carried out to many bridges throughout the district.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Powell River District, 5.27 miles of surfacing was seal-
coated.
Snow-removal.—The only snow-removal was on the Bella Coola Highway.
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 year.
North Vancouver Electoral District.
General.—Owing to the acute labour shortage in this district, maintenance-work
had to be held down to the minimum and even then the assistance of the municipal
forces had to be requested to augment our own so that the most essential work could be
undertaken. The gravel-shoulders and ditches were kept in a good state of repair and
the riding qualities of the paved surfaces were kept in as good condition as possible
by skin-patching.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A total of 4.1 miles was given a single spray-coat and
covered with a light aggregate.
Bridges.—Only minor maintenance was carried out.
Bank protection at No. 2 Capilano Bridge at the west end and up-stream side was
carried out with heavy angular rock riprap; approximately 400 cubic yards of rock
were quarried from the most dangerous slide sections along Marine Drive to provide
the material for this work.
Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral District.
General.—All roads were kept in a good state of repair throughout the year.
Keeping ditches clear is a steady job owing to the very heavy vegetation growth in this
area; also maintaining and painting guard-fences to retain a neat and pleasing appearance on this popular drive requires constant attention.
Owing to the ever-increasing popularity of horseback riding, it was found necessary to construct a bridle-trail 9 feet wide outside the ditch-line between Mile 6.10 and
Mile 7.30 of Marine Drive in order to keep the horse traffic off the gravel shoulders and
to avoid the possibility of accidents.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A 1.06-mile section of Marine Drive was given a fine,
medium mulch surface, which is a decided improvement to the drive at this point.
A further 450 cubic yards of fine gravel were used on the gravel shoulders along this
section to build them up to conform to the finished surface of the new pavement.
Chancellor Boulevard, University Endowment Lands.—A double spray-coat was
given 1.15 miles of this road and covered with torpedo gravel.
Bridges.—No. 1 Beacon Gulch: The stringers at the west end were reinforced, the
section of deck renewed and recovered with a mulch surface.
New Westminster Electoral District.
D.L. 172.—The replacing of open ditches by reinforced-concrete pipe was continued.    About 700 feet of such pipe were laid.
.   Ninth Avenue from Twentieth Street to Twenty-third Street and Twentieth Street
south of Marine Drive were widened and graded. O 18 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1944-45.
The park area between London Street and Ninth Avenue was graded and many
surface rocks removed.
During the very heavy rains of December it was noted that our storm sewers were
about taxed to their capacity.
Shallow surface breaks in the concrete deck of the Pattullo Bridge were repaired
with ferrogrout, which makes a very satisfactory and quick-setting patch. The use of
salt for removing ice and packed snow from the deck was thought to be the primary
cause of these breaks and its use was, therefore, discontinued. Despite this, a few
small breaks have recently occurred and it would, therefore, seem that the cause of
these breaks does not lie altogether with the use of salt.
Delta Electoral District.
Road Maintenance.—Not only have roads been called upon to carry, during the last
few years, more and heavier loads than before, but, owing to the scarcity of asphalt,
they have not received the attention and treatment necessary, with the result that year-
round patching is a major operation.
A start was made on levelling the boulevards so that power-mowers can operate on
them. Work of this nature was undertaken on the Aldergrove-Bellingham Highway
77r and on the Trans-Canada Highway 3R, both east and west of Aldergrove. Very
favourable comments were heard from the public concerning this work.
Work was also started on the raising and widening of the dyke on the north side
of Barnston Island for the purpose of building an extension of the present road to
serve the settlers in that area.
Traffic lines were repainted on all main roads.
The subdividing of lands adjacent to our main roads in the Lower Fraser Valley
continues and we have had to install no fewer than sixty-four private crossings during
the year to provide access to these subdivisions.
Assistance was given to municipalities towards improving the following roads:
River Road (Delta), Glover Road (Langley), and Hjorth Road (Surrey).
Bituminous Surfacing.—A mulch recap was placed on 1.5 miles of the southerly
end of Scott Road 69A in Delta.
A single respray was applied to the following: Three miles of Scott Road 6lA,
Surrey; 0.75 mile of Woodward's Highway 50b, Richmond; and 1.75 miles of Steveston
Highway 84b, Richmond.
Bridges.—Bridges Nos. 19 and 20 on Ladner Ferry Road were redecked, while
Clayton Bridge No. 23 was partially redecked.
Lumber was procured for redecking Haldi Island Bridge No. 26, but the work was
not put in hand and the material is now stored at Pattullo Bridge.
Eburne Bridges Nos. 4 and 5, which carry very heavy and at times dense traffic,
now require continual patching by two men and are due for a complete deck renewal.
The protection dolphins and rest piers at No. 4 Bridge continue to be battered by tugs
and scows, and this will no doubt continue, and may very well increase, as river traffic
increases.
At Fraser Avenue Bridge the down-stream half of the draw rest pier was so
badly damaged by impact of a scow that it had to be completely renewed.
Ferries.—The service of the Ladner-Woodward Ferry was interrupted on two
occasions during the year—three and one-half days in April while the counter-weight
towers at Ladner Landing were being renewed, and four and one-half days at New
Year when, during an extreme low tide, the landing pontoon at Woodward Landing was
holed by a large snag.
Barnston Island Ferry operated without interruption throughout the year. The
Hjorth Road landing was practically all renewed. Trans-Canada Highway, above Silver Creek, near Hope.

Snow-removal.—Snow-fences were erected, but for the second consecutive year no
snow of any consequence fell in the district.
Chilliwack Electoral District.
Road Maintenance.—The general maintenance of all roads was carried out in the
usual manner. Special attention was given to the removing of brush from the Sumas
Prairie section of the Trans-Canada Highway and also the Hope-Rosedale section.
About 1,000 feet of the road-bed of the Trans-Canada Highway 6R, 3 miles east
of Abbotsford, were dug up, and the unsatisfactory sub-grade material removed to
a depth of about 2 feet and replaced with a good grade of pit-run gravel. This was
later resurfaced with a road-mix asphaltic mulch, which came through the winter in
good shape.
The ditches adjacent to the Vye Road and Harris Road, north of Huntingdon, were
cleaned out and deepened with a drag-line to improve the drainage in that townsite.
One-quarter mile of new road was built in the Ryder Lake area to give access to
new settlers.
Bituminous Surfacing.—In addition to resurfacing mentioned above (0.18 mile on
Trans-Canada Highway 6r), a single spray was applied to a 2-mile section of Sardis
Road 62b, to the cost of which the Department contributed 40 per cent.
Bridges.—Overhead Crossing Bridge No. 1, Sumas River No. 10, Matsqui Slough
No. 26, and Hope Slough No. 52 were redecked. The deck of Bridge No. 1 was flush-
coated immediately after the work was finished and before it was opened to traffic.
Piling and caps are on hand and steel I-beams are on order for the building of
a new bridge to replace Ferry Slough Bridge No. 55. This work is to be undertaken,
as part of their training, by the engineers at the Chilliwack Military Camp.
Ferries.—The Agassiz-Rosedale Ferry operated, with only minor interruptions,
throughout the year. The work of renewing part of the inside protection-wall was
continued, a total of 150 feet having been reconstructed. The Rosedale summer landing was repaired. New caps and stringers were installed where necessary, with new
floor, wheel-guards, and handrails throughout.
River-bank Protection (Fraser River).—The work of protecting the river-banks
in the neighbourhood of Minto Landing with hand-placed rock was continued, the actual
work being done by municipal forces.
The straightening of the river-channel near the north bank east of Harrison River
was also continued. A 10-cubic-yard carry-all was used for this work, and it is estimated that 38,000 cubic yards were moved by this unit between March 5th and April
2nd. It is hoped that the high water of next summer may so deepen and widen the
channel thus made as to materially relieve the pressure on the river-banks at Ballam
Slough and Minto Landing.
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.
Construction and Reconstruction.—Many very much needed and appreciated minor
improvements were carried out from supplementary funds provided from Revenue
Surplus. Widening was done on dangerous points and side-hill sections; and miles of
major gravel surfacing were renewed.    Broken sections of mulch paving were recapped. O 20 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1944-45.
Surfacing.—On the Kamloops-Tete Jaune Road, between Kamloops and Rayleigh,
7 miles of flush-coat renewal were done. GraveL was crushed and stock-piled for
further work of flush-coating the section on the Kamloops-Tranquille Road and the
Trans-Canada Highway between McAbee and Cache Creek. This last section also
received a complete shaping with a grader and a heavy gravel renewal surface laid
prior to placing a double spray-coat.
Snow-removal.—The winter's snowfall was generally light. Ice conditions were
bad, requiring considerable sanding all during the winter.
Bridges.—The work on these consisted for the most part in reinforcing structures
to take increasingly heavy loads due to logging operations. Several stringer bridges
were renewed. New bridges were built by the Department of Mines and Resources at
Thunder River and Mileage Creek, on the Blue River-Yellowhead Project.
Ferries.—Considerable repairs were required to keep in service the ferries at
Black Pool and Little Fort. The others were maintained and kept in operation with
only the normal expenditure.
Yale Electoral District.
Maintenance.—During the past fiscal year twice as much gravel was put on the
highways as the previous year.    Twenty per cent, of this gravel was screened.
On the Cariboo Highway, 35,000 cubic yards of slide material and gravel were
moved and used for widening.
Snow-removal was fairly light, but sanding of icy l-oads required more attention
than usual.
Major Reconstruction and Improvements.—During the year three sections of the
Cariboo Highway were under reconstruction. At Mile 111.5, west of Yale, the revision
started last year was completed and surfaced with a double spray-coat of asphalt. At
Mile 113 a dangerous corner was eliminated by making a heavy cut 400 feet long and
removing 15,000 cubic yards of material. Slide material was removed from Jackass
Mountain at Mile 158 to Mile 160. This material was used to raise and widen a section
of road at Mile 161, which had broken up through frost action.
On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway the Department of Mines and
Resources reconstructed a section of the highway from Mile 14 to Mile 16.3. This has
been built on the surveyed line and is 50 per cent, completed.
Along Nicola Lake, on the Kamloops Road, 0.4 mile of road was widened to 30 feet.
This was 75 per cent, in solid rock, which varied from 10 to 60 feet high.
On the Spences Bridge-Merritt Road a revision was made at Mile 34. The new
grade is 38 feet wide.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Bituminous surfacing carried out consisted of 9.9 miles
of resurfacing and 1.2 miles of new mulch pavement.
Bridges.—Four bridges were reconstructed during the year, twenty others received
major repairs, and twenty others received minor repairs.
Ferries.—The Boston Bar-North Bend aerial ferry was operated throughout the
year with very little inconvenience to traffic due to repairs. During the twelve months
there were 2,231 vehicles and 16,685 passengers carried.
Salmon Arm Electoral District.
Roads.—While new construction was absent, important reconstruction was undertaken at various places, notably at Hoffman's Bluff and Chase Hill, on the Trans-Canada
Highway.
Using Surplus Revenue funds, some very necessary improvements were made on
some 23 miles of settlement roads.
General maintenance and gravelling were satisfactorily carried on. DISTRICT REPORTS. O 21
Bridges.—Considerable difficulty was experienced in obtaining lumber for bridge-
work, all mills being very busy.
Material was assembled for replacement of deck and handrails on Squilax Bridge.
Other structures were satisfactorily maintained. Property was acquired for the
relocation of Old Mill Bridge over Salmon River.
Ferries.—The pontoons of the ferry at Sicamous being rotted and unfit for further
service were discarded, and new pontoons built ready for resumption of operation in
1945.
Snowfall.—Winter conditions were less severe than usual, the total snowfall
amounting to about 28 inches in falls of from 2 to 6 inches at intervals. Traffic was
maintained.
Revelstoke Electoral District.
Maintenance of Roads.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and
local roads.    Many culverts were renewed and some soft parts were gravelled.
Bridges.—Nine bridges were redecked and repairs made to many others. The
difficulty in obtaining material retarded the work considerably.
Construction.—Seven miles of unfinished work near Malakwa, on the Trans-Canada
Highway No. 1, were completed and 5 miles of this section were surfaced with crushed
gravel.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was not deep, but was exceptionally heavy due to
mild weather and intermittent rain and snowfall, making exceptionally heavy work for
the ploughs.
North Okanagan Electoral District.
Maintenance.—The usual general maintenance was carried out on all highways and
tributary roads, which consisted of minor improvements, grading, repairing, cleaning
and renewing culverts, cutting of weeds, drainage, and patch-gravelling.
Surfacing, Gravel.—Major renewal:   5.83 miles of road gravelled.

ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Cranbrook Electoral District.
General.—Maintenance of all travelled roads was carried out, consisting of grading, repairing and renewing culverts, gravelling, drainage, and cutting weeds, etc.
Frost during the previous winter caused considerable damage to some sections of
pavement; 400 cubic yards of plant-mixed bituminous mulch were used in patching
operations.
Surfacing.—On the Kootenay-Columbia Highway, between Cranbrook and Kimberley, 2.6 miles of asphalt-mulch surface were backed-filled and relaid.
Seven miles of new gravel were laid on the Gold Creek Road. This road is being
subjected to heavy traffic by logging operations in the vicinity. The placing of 7,000
cubic yards of pit-run gravel was made possible by the co-operation of logging companies in supplying the trucks for the hauling.
Bridges.—A 250-foot pile-trestle bridge was constructed over the St. Mary River
to replace an old structure serving the Crow's Nest Pass Lumber Company's mill.
Snow-rem.oval.—The snowfall was light and no difficulty was experienced in maintaining continuous traffic; 202 miles were kept open at a cost of $7.16 per mile, the
ploughs travelling 3,266 snow-plough miles.
The sanding of hills and curves was carried out throughout the winter.
Fernie Electoral District.
Roads.—During the winter months considerable work was done on the clearing and
cleaning up of main road right-of-way.
The 1//2-mile section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway through West
Fernie was reconstructed and made ready for mulch surfacing during the coming
season. About 3,000 cubic yards were removed at Morrissey, on the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway, to daylight-cut where snowslides occur.
The unpaved sections between Michel and Crowsnest were given a new coat of
gravel and superelevated curves corrected and made ready for surfacing.
Bridges.—A new bridge was constructed over the Elk River, at Elk Prairie on the
Elk Valley Road, to replace old structure. The new bridge consists of 140-foot Howe-
truss span with approaches; over-all length, 196 feet. The whole structure is on concrete piers with concrete ballast walls and end posts.
Bridges redecked included Wilson Creek, Carbon Creek, Elk Log Channel—the latter requiring a new sidewalk and handrail. Bridge No. 6, over the Elk River at Elko,
was also redecked and work was practically finished at the end of fiscal year.
Columbia Electoral District.
During the fiscal year 1944-45 reconstruction-work was carried out on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway 12 miles south of Golden. A section of the highway 2.38 miles
in length was 75 per cent, complete on March 31st.
A wing-dam 1,000 feet long and containing approximately 7,000 cubic yards of
material was constructed at Sullivan River to divert the water away from the road.
A 1,000-foot section of road which was washed out was rebuilt and riprapped with rock.
Bridges.—The usual maintenance-work on bridges was carried out with only minor
repairs being made. A pile-trestle bridge 360 feet in length over the Columbia River
at Brisco was completed, including painting.
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions in the district were light, except on the bench
roads and the road west of Golden. Ice conditions, however, were bad and considerable
sanding and cutting with ice-blades had to be done. The roads, however, were kept in
very good condition for the greater part of the winter. 0 24 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1944-45.
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.—On the Castlegar-Nelson section widening was done at Brilliant, where
trouble and expense had been experienced for years due to sliding gravel-banks. The
Taghum Hill section was trimmed and prepared for asphaltic surfacing.
On the Nelson-Balfour section a notable improvement was made 9 miles north of
the Nelson Ferry north landing by widening on permanent alignment and grades for
a distance of % mile.
A 5-mile section of the Gray Creek-Creston section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway was greatly improved by the application of a coating of material placed
on the road by trucks operating from a shovel at a large deposit some 2x/2 miles south
of Kuskanook. This material is of a very unusual nature, consisting of decomposed
granite, felspar, and calcium, resulting in a smooth-running, non-abrasive surface
covering protruding rock and oversize gravel.
Bituminous Surfacing.—On the Castlegar-Nelson section of the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway double spray-coat was laid on the Beasley Bluff section, and on
Taghum Hill an asphaltic-mulch surface was applied with first-class results for 1 mile;
this surfacing is 28 feet wide on the curve at the foot of the hill and 24 feet wide on
the remainder;   a select gravel was used for the supporting shoulders.
On the Nelson-Balfour section spray-coat and recapping with asphaltic mulch was
undertaken.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was below average and no difficulty was experienced in
maintaining continuity of traffic, with the cost per mile about the same as in the
previous year.
Bridges.—All repair-work was carried out satisfactorily. New floor systems were
laid on the Goat River Bridge on the Creston-Porthill Road, and a bridge over the same
river on the Erickson-Lister Road; both are major bridges.
Ferries.—The numerous ferries in this district operated continuously and successfully throughout the year. The Kootenay Lake Ferry continued on the winter schedule
for the whole period, and the service was carried on by the C.P.R. S.S. " Moyie " during
boiler repairs on the S.S. " Nasookin." The Nelson Ferry operated on the same
schedule as the previous year satisfactorily.
Surveys.—The location surveys on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway made
by Mr. H. L. Hayne's party were permanently referenced.
Information was gathered for the proposed Kootenay Lake ferry-landings and the
necessary road approaches.
Grand Forks-Greenwood Electoral District.
Roads.—The most important work in this district was the reconstruction of the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway through Grand Forks City. This work consisted
of removal of very unsuitable material by shovel excavation for the full extent of 1 mile
and an average depth of 3 feet and utilizing the excavated material in a 7-foot embankment on another section of road east of the city. A subgrade was constructed by hauling in suitable gravelly material and the 30-foot road-bed was completed with a 6-inch
course of crushed gravel and an asphaltic-mulch surface of 24 feet was laid successfully.
On the same highway a short diversion was constructed y2 mile east of Grand
Forks for a distance of % mile.
Also on the same highway at the overhead crossing of the C.P.R. at Gilpin, 5 miles
east of Grand Forks, % mile of standard construction was undertaken to improve
visibility and grade, by rock excavation and embankment; this work was 70 per cent,
completed. DISTRICT REPORTS. O 25

with a 30-foot road-bed and gravelled, replacing a very narrow and crooked section.
Between Slocan City and Silverton y2 mile of necessary widening was done.
On the Mirror Lake section of the Nelson-Kaslo Road a marked improvement was
made by widening a very narrow section by excavation in solid rock, resulting in a
21-foot road-bed where 12 feet only existed previously for % mile. Regravelling to
the extent of 7 miles was completed on weak sections throughout the district.
Bridges.—One new 60-foot King truss was constructed in the Inonoaklin Valley
over Inonoaklin Creek on Robinson Road.
General maintenance was carried out on all bridges needing attention.
Ferries.—The two ferries, one at East and West Arrow Park, and the other at
Needles-Fauquier, gave excellent service, running continuously throughout the year.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was comparatively light on the lower levels, but on
the summits it was extremely heavy and difficult to remove, being continually wet falls.
Our ploughs travelled during the season 6,047 snow-plough miles and 267.5 miles were
kept open.
Rossland-Trail Electoral District.
Roads.—The only work in a major category was on the Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway at Birchbank, 5 miles east of Trail, where the obsolete trestle bridge was
replaced by a permanent culvert and embankment on revised alignment.
A section of the Trail-Pend-d'Oreille Road, 2.5 miles long, extending from the top
of Beaver Creek Hill to the Great Northern Railway crossing below Columbia Gardens,
was graded and ditched to a width of 20 feet, and was then gravelled an average depth
of 8 inches. Another section of this road, about 0.10 mile through Robertson Ranch,
was widened to a width of 24 feet and gravelled.
Two miles of the Columbia Gardens Station Road were graded and gravelled to a
width of 14 feet. On the northern end of the Fruitvale-Columbia Gardens Road the
road was graded and gravelled for 2.6 miles to an average width of 16 feet.
An improvement was made on the Schofield Highway section of the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway by filling and widening the shoulders of the road to an
average width of 8 feet and for a distance of 1.7 miles.
On local highways within municipal limits, the narrow rock-cut on the northern
end of the Rossland-Paterson Road was drilled and the holes sprung ready for blasting
for a distance of 450 feet. Completion of this work had to be postponed till later, as
it was not possible to detour under winter conditions.
Bridges.—New bridges were built over Trail Creek on French Street, Lower
Annable, and over Murphy Creek on the Murphy Creek Station Road.
Bridge No. 2 on the Trail-Salmo Road and the McAllister Creek Bridge on the
Fort Sheppard Road were both replaced by culverts and fills.
The bridge across Johnson Creek at Birchbank on the Trail-Castlegar Road was
replaced by a 40-inch concrete pipe culvert and fill. O 26 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1944-45.
Columbia River Bridge No. 10 at Trail: Ties and longitudinal deck were renewed
during the past season.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was heavier than usual and the winter was somewhat
longer. The Rossland-Cascade section of Highway No. 3 was not kept open, closing
December 20th, 1944. All other main roads were kept open, and a great deal of sanding
was required on the hills.
Castlegar Ferry.—The usual twenty-four-hour service was maintained during the
full year.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 6   (LILLOOET AND CARIBOO
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Lillooet Electoral District.
Construction.—The Bonaparte Valley Road was extended to the north end of Loon
' Lake, a distance of 8.5 miles;   Chasm Sawmill Road, 4 miles;   Lee's Sawmill, 2 miles.
Reconstruction.—On the Lytton-Lillooet Road at Halfway, Mile 23, 1 mile of reconstruction was carried out, entailing 20,100 cubic yards of balanced cut and fill which
eliminated twenty blind corners; 0.15 mile of the road was relocated. On the Jones-
Dickey Road, a section, Mile 13 to Mile 16, was partly reconstructed, including the well-
known Texas Creek Hill. On this hill the alignment was improved. Improvements and
gravel surfacing were carried out on the Kelly Lake-Canoe Creek and Hat Creek Roads
in particular.
Bridges.—The Lillooet Station Bridge was replaced with a 100-foot Howe-truss
span, with creosoted chords and corbels resting on cement piers; three spans of trestle
approach, making a total length of 155 feet. The Pilchuck Bridge was replaced with
350 feet of trestle with tie and longitudinal deck 10 feet in width. The Bridge River
and Minnebarriett Bridges were redecked with tie and longitudinal decks. Several
smaller structures were redecked and minor repairs were made.
Surfacing.—Lillooet Main Street received 0.85 mile of a mulch coat 24 feet wide,
containing 1,036 cubic yards aggregate. The Trans-Canada Highway east of Spences
Bridge received a single coat respray for 6.3 miles which required 1,674 cubic yards of
cover. The preparation of the 6.5 miles east of Cache Creek was prepared for spray-
coating early in the new fiscal year. At some points visibility, width, and drainage
were improved and three creosoted pipe culverts were installed.
Flood-control.—The Squamish River Channel Diversion at Murphy's Bend was
maintained throughout the year. It is now estimated that 50 per cent, of the river
passes through this channel. At Pemberton, the Miller Ditch River Diversion was
completed. A channel was blasted out 12-15 feet wide, 4-6 feet in depth, a distance
of 1,200 feet. This short-cuts the Miller Bend. Further brush and rock mattressing
was also carried out along the Lillooet River and the log-jam near Wolverine Creek.
Snow-removal.—The winter generally till March was very mild with little snow.
During March some exceptionally heavy, wet snowfalls occurred, which were costly to
move, and on the Bridge River Road necessitated the use of three bulldozers. Three
hundred miles were kept open; 1,390 miles were opened up with a total of 2,634 snow-
plough miles. The average cost per mile kept open was $23.67. Standing costs amounted
to $882.96.

Highway Reconstruction and Improvement.—No. 25 Cariboo Road: The Fraser
River hill immediately east of Prince George was resurfaced with screened gravel to a
depth of 4 inches and a width of 30 feet for a distance of 1.2 miles. The work also
included the removal of a bad frost-heave to a depth of 3 feet which was back-filled with
selected material. A further 6 miles of this road from the top of the Fraser River hill
to Mile 285.4 were resurfaced with screened gravel.
A fill of approximately 30,000 yards to eliminate the dangerous curve at the bottom
of the Fraser River hill was commenced but was not quite completed by the end of the
fiscal year.
No. 3 Northern Trans-Provincial Highway: Grading involving considerable yardage was practically completed on the Squirrel Creek Diversion and several heavy cuts
were taken out on the 5 miles immediately west. This work was facilitated by the use
of a TD-18 with 7-yard scraper rented from a contractor. Between Hansard and
Sinclair Mills, a 5-mile section was gravelled.
No. 24 Chief Lake Road:   Considerable regravelling was carried out on this road.
No. 116 Hammond Road: One mile of this road was reconstructed to a wider

boundary of Omineca District is approximately 6.5 miles.
Bridges.—Several bridges were reconstructed during the year. Turcotte Bridge,
on the Vanderhoof-Sackner Road, was reconditioned throughout. Other bridges to be
renewed were the Five-mile No. 10, Goldie No. 4, Stoney Creek No. 3, and Watkins Nos.
13 and 12.    Other bridges were put in good order through repairs.
Snozv-removal.—The winter of 1944-45 was one of exceptionally heavy snowfall in
this area. It was found very difficult to keep open all the industrial roads at all times.
The main highway was closed but once during the winter and then only for a period of
thirty-six hours. It became necessary to use heavy equipment on many occasions in
order to open up some roads in the district. A total of 334 miles of road was kept
open at an average cost of $18 per mile.
Omineca (West) Electoral District.
Maintenance of Highways.—Maintenance of highways was carried out fairly satisfactorily in spite of the acute labour shortage which prevailed throughout this district.
Farmers working out their taxes were used to a large extent in maintaining settlement
roads. Main highways were attended to by our own forces. Extensive repairs were
impossible owing to labour conditions. Minor works and maintenance were practically
all that were undertaken.
Highway Construction.—Minor highway improvements were carried out on the
Colleymount, Keefe's Landing-Ootsa, North Francois, and North Trans-Provincial
Highways. These improvements consisted largely of widening, improvements to alignment, and gravelling. A new section of road about 3 miles in length was constructed
off the Burns Lake-Babine Lake Road into Augier Lake. Some improvements by way
of widening and gravelling were carried out on the North Trans-Provincial Highway
in the vicinity of Lowe's Ranch.
Bridges.—The Woodmere Bridge was given attention by way of renewal of the
superstructure.    In all, about eighteen bridges were repaired in the district.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall throughout the district was considerably heavier than
had been experienced for several years. It was found extremely difficult to keep the
various industrial roads open during the month of January. This was due to the
exceptionally heavy snowfalls during that month. It was also found that the cost of
snow-removal was increased considerably as a result of the lighter equipment being
unable to cope with the situation.    Heavy equipment was brought into use very early DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 31
in the season.    It became necessary to continue with the heavy equipment during the
entire winter.
In all, 386 miles of road were ploughed at least twice during the season. Some
5,785 snow-plough miles were made by the various units. The average cost per mile
of road kept ploughed was $25.14.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8a  (PEACE RIVER DISTRICT).
District Engineer, F. J. Clark, Pouce Coupe.
Peace River Electoral District.
Highway Maintenance.—All roads throughout the district were well maintained.
Highway Reconstruction.—Road No. 5 Pouce Coupe to Clayhurst was ditched,
raised, and widened for 12 miles by elevating grader. New culverts were installed,
the larger sizes being creosoted wood stave. The Beatton River Hill on Road No. 12
to Cecil Lake was widened and generally improved for 3 miles.
Montney Hill on Road No. 13 to Montney and North Pine settlements was also
widened and ditched for 3 miles.
Road No. 21 to Kelly Lake was brushed and graded for 9 miles.
Mining Roads.—Two and one-half miles of road west of Hudson Hope and 9 miles
to the Hasler Creek coal mines were built.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was the heaviest for many years. High winds throughout the winter caused extensive drifting. On several occasions snow-ploughing equipment was drifted in. The Department ploughed 635.8 miles of road for 2,043 snow-
plough miles at a cost of $11.84 per snow-plough mile.
Bridges.—A new bridge, No. 66-1, over the East Pine River was built to connect
to the Hasler Creek coal mines. The Moberly River was also bridged close to the
easterly end of Moberly Lake. This bridge is built of native timber, except the decking, which is mill-sawn.
Hanna Bridge No. 2-1, a 60-foot King truss with pile approaches, had a new
superstructure erected.
Thirty-eight other bridges were repaired and maintained during the year.
Buildings.—All Government buildings have been maintained. One residence at
Pouce Coupe was purchased during the year. O 32

ACCOUNTS BRANCH.
In submitting the annual statement of expenditure for the year 1944-45, it may
be of interest to make some observations on the activities of this Branch.
During the year the Branch has dealt with over 25,600 inward and outward communications while 42,650 vouchers were dealt with.
In connection with the number of vouchers handled it should be noted that the
adoption of the Pay-list Summary system considerably decreased the volume of vouchers
handled by eliminating sundry small pay-lists and also reducing the number of cheques
issued. The approval of the Comptroller-General to our suggestion that more than
one vote or appropriation might be shown on one abstract greatly reduced the number
of abstracts handled.
A considerable saving in time and money has been effected by the system of distributing camp equipment, kitchen utensils, and small tools from a central warehouse.
Our warehouse at Langford equipped all the survey parties under the Location Engineer
and also several survey parties operating under the jurisdiction of the Power Commission. A sound accounting system has been installed in this connection, resulting
in a proper control by perpetual inventory. Control of camp equipment and small tools
was greatly improved by this system. All equipment of this nature is strictly accounted
for and signed receipts are available in our warehouses for equipment in use. Lost
or broken equipment has to be reported and, where broken, remnants must be returned
to the warehouse for inspection.
The expenditure is controlled in this office by appropriation according to electoral
district. It is further segregated under various subsections and individual jobs are
controlled by work order. Overexpenditures can not appear in our ledgers as our
accounting machines are so set that they will not enter a voucher in excess to the
amount authorized by work order.
The accounting methods employed in this branch are being continually improved
and modernized, and are in accordance with the best modern accounting practice and
up-to-date business methods. O 54 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1944-45.
