REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., November 29th, 1949.
Hon. E. C. Carson,
Minister of Public Works, Victoria, B.C.
SIR,—A report of the activities of this Department for the fiscal year 1948-49 is
herewith submitted for your consideration.
This Report is changed somewhat in form from the Reports of other years, inasmuch as individual reports are attached hereto from the various heads of the sections
of this Department,
All work undertaken has been completed in a satisfactory manner. Very considerable reconstruction of highways was undertaken, and 282 miles of bituminous surfacing
was completed. The Southern Trans-Provincial Highway from Princeton easterly to
Kaleden was reconstructed and hard-surfaced, and in the coming year the Hope-Princeton Highway will be opened, which will open up the whole of the Southern Interior of
the Province with direct and modern highway communication with Vancouver and the
Pacific Coast.
Excellent progress has been made in connection with the construction of the John
Hart Highway to give access from the Pacific Coast to the Peace River District, but it
is not expected that this highway will be opened for public traffic for at least another
year.
The Bridge Section of the Department produced designs for modern bridges which
have been constructed, and have proved to meet the needs of their requirements in a
most satisfactory manner.
The Architect Department has proved its value, as in the past, and buildings,
hospitals, schools, etc., have been designed which have amply met the needs of the conditions for which they were required.
Notwithstanding the very heavy burden of work entailed, District Engineers and
their assistants have performed a very gratifying duty, even beyond the needs that they
were called upon to perform in the ordinary course of events.
Throughout the Province more than 23,000 miles of road and 10,000 miles of trails
have been maintained. During the winter months more than 13,000 miles of road were
kept open by snow-ploughing, involving 311,000 snow-plough miles at an average cost of
$88 per mile kept open, compared with 10,000 miles kept open during the previous year
at an average cost of $54 per mile.
The traffic increase upon Provincial highways is very noticeable, and in confirmation thereof it might be stated that on the Pattullo Bridge traffic amounted to 4,465,978
vehicles, and the traffic on the Provincial ferries of the Province, which are an integral
part of the highway system, is listed herewith.

Attached to this Report is a detailed statement of the highways, as classified under
Part III of the " Highway Act," for the fiscal year under consideration.
There was a very considerable increase in the resubdivision of areas throughout
the Province, necessitating additional work by the approving officer, which, in relation
to the number of new parcels created, resulted in a proportionate increase in the number of permits for entrances, waterworks, power and telephone connections.
The number of letters handled during the year by the Department in general was
71,705.
In conclusion, I may say that, nothwithstanding extraordinary difficulties, a satisfactory year's work has been accomplished, and I wish to record the efficiency, dependability, and loyalty of our staff.
DEPUTY MINISTER.
REPORT OF THE MECHANICAL SUPERINTENDENT.
I beg to submit the annual report of the Equipment Branch for the fiscal year
1948-49.
INSPECTION OF EQUIPMENT.
The equipment in all districts except Atlin was inspected, and, with very few
exceptions, all was found to be in good condition. A number of tractors, graders, and
other road-maintenance units, although in fair operating condition, are obsolete and
due for replacement. A considerable number of these units were replaced during the
year, but another year or so is required to complete these long overdue replacements.
NEW EQUIPMENT.
Revenue funds in the amount of $424,150.68 were made available for the purchase
of machinery. Included in these purchases are trucks, small maintainers, snow-ploughs,
road-sanders, tar-kettles, power-saws, light plants, wobble-wheel rollers, pumps, centreline markers, and sundry shop equipment. These machines replaced a number of
obsolete units, which were advertised and sold.
The number of trucks in the various age-groups is as follows:—       Trucks.
Over 12 years of age, purchased before 1936 (inclusive)     30
7 to 12 years of age, purchased 1937 to 1941 (inclusive)  219
4 to 7 years of age, purchased 1942 to 1944 (inclusive)     41
2 to 4 years of age, purchased 1945 to 1946 (inclusive)  102
Up to 2 years of age, purchased 1947 to 1948 (inclusive)  227
Total  619
Average age, 4 years.
Capital funds in the amount of $1,439,730.40 were invested in heavy machinery.
The following breakdown shows the amount invested in each type of unit:—
Four compressors   $12,418.92
Two mixers  7,804.24
Four hoists   19,695.50
Thirteen power-shovels  289,523.82
Four loaders  24,316.29
Thirty-nine power-graders   518,588.09
Four pumps   4,937.18

Total  $1,439,730.40
Several types of equipment included in the above list, notably a force-feed loader,
Pulvi-mixers, and a brush-cutter, are the first of their kind to be purchased by the
Department and have been operated with great satisfaction.
EQUIPMENT FUND.
Machines with a present value of $2,466,428.98 were operated very successfully
during the year, with approximately $609,000 in rentals being paid. Profit over depreciation and repairs amounted to approximately $147,000.
CRUSHING PLANTS.
The five gravel-crushing plants and one primary crushing plant were transferred
to the Equipment Fund at the beginning of the year. The machines operated very
profitably, with a profit over repairs and depreciation of $13,602.01. As shown in the
list of Equipment Fund purchases above, two additional gravel-crushing plants were
recently purchased and put in operation. However, at this time no data is available
as to the economy of their operation.

Mechanical Superintendent.
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES.
I beg to submit the annual report of ferries for the fiscal year 1948-49.
All major ferries owned and operated by this Department, also those chartered,
were inspected, detailed reports submitted, and all necessary repairs and replacements
carried out.
The Twelve Mile Ferry at Revelstoke, of wood construction, built in 1929, was
replaced with a steel barge—length, 70 feet; beam, 24 feet; depth, 4 feet 6 inches.
Machinery from the old barge was overhauled and transferred to the new barge.
The Usk and Fort Fraser Reaction Ferries, of wood construction, were replaced
with 10-ton steel pontoons, reaction type. The trailer barge formerly used on the old
Nelson Ferries was overhauled and power-cable machinery installed and transferred
to Nick's Island.
Plans and specifications were prepared and contract let for a steel-hull twin-screw
ferry for Francois Lake—length, 116 feet; beam, 33 feet 8 inches; capacity, 16 cars
and 120 passengers.
Plans and specifications were also prepared and contract let for a steel-hull twin-
screw double-ended ferry for Ladner-Woodward—length, 147 feet; beam, 44 feet;
depth, 9 feet 6 inches;  capacity, 30 cars and 200 passengers.

REPORT OF THE  CHIEF ARCHITECT. O  11
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECT.
I beg to submit the following report on the activities of this branch for the fiscal
year ended March 31st, 1948.
The volume of work carried out during this year has been the greatest in the
history of the branch, and as the work has also been so urgent, it has taxed the capacity
of out staff to the utmost to cope with it. We have been able to obtain one or two new
men, which has helped considerably, and I feel that we have reached the peak of the
work on the present appropriations.
CAPITAL EXPENDITURES.
Essondale.—Considerable activity has continued at this institution. The admission
unit and 220-bed hospitals are nearing completion, three nurses' homes are well under
way, also addition to the fire hall and additions to the farm, besides other buildings are
in the preliminary planning stage.
New Westminster Mental Hospital.—The nurses' home was completed and a 100-bed
unit started, which is well advanced. Plans are being prepared for other units at this
point.
Tranquille.—Nurses' home, four doctors' residences, two residences for farm help,
and addition to the farm boarding-house are almost completed.
Vancouver.—The addition to the tuberculosis hospital, being donated by the British
Columbia Tuberculosis Society to the Government, is well advanced. The Government
acquired a building on Burrard Street and remodelled it for the Health Insurance and
other branches of the Service. Plans are well advanced for the new tuberculosis
hospital in Vancouver, also boiler plant was awarded at the Deaf and the Blind School
and plans are well advanced for the school-house and hospital unit at that point.
Court-houses.—The following Court-houses were completed: Penticton, Burns
Lake, and Alberni. Additions to Lillooet, Quesnel, and new Court-house at Ocean
Falls—plans were either completed or out for tender.
Other buildings were lock-ups at Sooke and Duncan, and ferrymen's cottages at
Francois Lake.
Public Works garages at Princeton, Quesnel, and Pouce Coupe were planned, and
additions to Public Works engineering buildings at other points.
Victoria.—The main building programme of the year was the new permanent office
building, Victoria, which will be out for tender early in the present fiscal year. We also
completed No. 1 and No. 2 temporary office buildings in Victoria, and a start made
on No. 3. *
Hospitals.—Work was completed on the remodelling of the military hospital in
Vernon, and a start made on the one at Terrace, and planning of an addition to the
present hospital at Salmon Arm and additions to St. Joseph's Hospital, Victoria.
University of British Columbia.—Work has progressed well on the various University buildings at Point Grey, and the Biological Building was awarded during this
period.
Schools, etc.—The branch has continued to check all plans for schools, hospitals,
residences, at the University Endowment Lands, or other buildings to which the
Government give any grants.
Repairs.—This year has been heavy in repairs throughout the Province, but
I regret that due to so much work being carried out in the office, it has not been
possible for our staff to do all the work we would like to do, but as soon as this situation
eases, it is our intention to thoroughly go over them.
Rentals also have been greatly increased due to the increase in the public service,
and this alone has occupied much of the time of one member of our staff. The increase
was mainly due to the hospital insurance being placed in operation. O  12 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
Staff.—As this will, no doubt, be the last annual report I will make in the public
service, and also during the year Mr. Ford will also retire, I wish to take this opportunity of expressing my thanks to the Minister, yourself, and Mr. Anderson, and all
members of my staff at headquarters and in the field, for their courtesy, assistance, and
encouragement in the carrying-on of this office for the past thirty-six years. It will
always be a pleasure to look back on the happy associations with the Department and
other branches of the service, and I trust that the work of this branch has contributed
something to the public service of this Province.
I wish Mr. Ford health and happiness in his retirement and thanks for his
assistance, and wish every success to our successors.
H. Whittaker,
Chief Architect.
REPORT OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEER.
The programme for the replacement of obsolete timber bridges on our trunk
highways with permanent concrete and steel structures was carried on during the fiscal
year 1948-49.
Steel became more plentiful and easier to obtain, whilst more experienced labour
could also be got, so that we were able to complete many structures, which had been
delayed the previous year, and thus make them available for the use of the public.
Among these were Englishman River on the Island Highway, Similkameen River
at Princeton, West Fernie over Elk River, Deep Creek on the Vernon-Edgewood Road,
Eagle River on Trans-Canada Highway, Seymour Creek in North Vancouver, and the
Stirling on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway. Other bridges of concrete and
steel constructed during the year were as follows: Cameron River (east and west),
French Creek at Coombs—all on the Parksville-Alberni Highway; Moyie River and
Yahk Slough on Southern Trans-Provincial Highway at Yahk; Muir Creek on West
Coast Road; South Fork of Salmo River on Nelson-Nelway Road; Kay Falls on Trans-
Canada Highway; Twenty Mile Creek at Hedley; Clapperton, Nicola Lake, and Ten
Mile in vicinity of Merritt.
Timber bridges of the Howe-truss type, with the principal parts of creosoted
timber, were erected at Vavenby over North Thompson River and at Sunshine Valley
over Nicola River.
Painting of the steelwork on Pattullo Bridge at New Westminster was almost
completed, but due to weather conditions the work had to be closed down until next
year.
A detailed list of the principal bridges constructed or reconstructed during this
fiscal year appears elsewhere in this Report.
The timber situation eased somewhat during the year, with the result that a good
deal of general maintenance and construction of the smaller timber bridges was
accomplished by the field staffs throughout the Province.
The staff at headquarters have again had a busy year in the designing of structures
and preparation of plans, etc., and I wish to record my appreciation of the work which
both the field and office staffs have accomplished.

Bridge Engineer. REPORT OF THE SURFACING ENGINEER. 0  13
REPORT OF THE SURFACING ENGINEER.
During the fiscal year of 1948-49 the paving programme was very extensive and
followed the general policy of the Department to pave the main highways and such
needed industrial roads which were constructed to a satisfactory standard.
The major part of this year's pavements were of the asphaltic hot plant-mix
machine-laid type, using SC 6 asphalt.
The Department purchased two Pulvi-mixers and this year processed the base
prior to laying of asphalt pavement in lieu of priming. This base stabilization proved
very satisfactory, and plans are being formulated to increase the number of miles of
stabilized base next year. This year 47.4 miles of road received the base-stabilization
treatment.
The types and miles of pavement laid are as follows:—
(1) Asphalt plant-mix pavements, 230.2.
(2) Asphalt road-mix pavements, 16.5.
(3) Surface treatments, 27.8.
(4) Stabilized-base treatment only, 6.9.
In addition to the attached table showing mileage and types, this branch operated
two small bituminous mixing plants which produced 17,593 tons of asphaltic plant-mix
material for repairing and patching pavements. This material was used for various
districts throughout the Province by the local district forces for the maintenance of
the paved highways. Five crushing plants were operated this past season, and these
plants produced crushed gravel for paving and for construction. The amount of
crushing is tabled by calendar years as follows: 1946, 159,127 cubic yards; 1947,
504,634 cubic yards; 1948, 697,975 tons. The total gallonage of bituminous material
was 5,391,563.
The outstanding feature of this year's programme has been the number of miles
of new surface laid, and, for the most part, this mileage is on roadways built to a high
standard. O 14

REPORT OF THE LOCATION ENGINEER.
One hundred and eighty-two miles of final location survey was carried out during
the 1948-49 fiscal year on new location and revision of main trunk-highway locations
throughout the Province.
In addition to the above survey programme, surveys of bridge-sites, preliminary
surveys, and miscellaneous flood-control surveys were carried out. In particular, the
centre line of the proposed Okanagan River channel control from Penticton to Osoyoos
Lake was, by necessity, carried out during winter conditions.
The total cost of surveys for the year was $216,506.02. Office expenses, right-of-
way, equipment and instrument repairs bring the total to $262,621.24.
Engineering personnel and equipment for construction projects throughout the
Province were maintained from this office. REPORT OP THE PROJECT ENGINEER. 0 15
Land surveys of right-of-way and related work were carried out by British Columbia land surveyors on major highway-construction projects.
Engineering equipment and mechanical transport were purchased to take care of
constantly increasing survey requirements. Practically all blue-printing of plans is
produced in our own offices, where records of construction projects, finalization of
estimates, and production of as-constructed plans are also maintained.
Engineering personnel for location and construction projects, brought into the
service in the past few years and now familiar with our work, have overcome to a large
extent the shortage of trained personnel which handicapped our operations immediately
following the war. A number of under-graduates who are engaged on our surveys
during the summer vacation periods will, it is expected, become available to the Department after graduation.

Snow-removal.—Snow conditions continued from November to the end of February,
and the full crew was kept busy keeping the roads open and sanding all hills.
Comox Electoral District.
Maintenance.—All roads throughout the district were maintained during the year.
Many of the old wooden culverts were replaced with reinforced concrete or metal pipe.
Large quantities of gravel were used in repairing the worst sections of the more important side-roads.    Some labour was derived from tax workers on the side-roads.
Reconstruction.—Island Highway from Mile 95.7 to Mile 102.1—the standard
reconstruction commenced in 1946 was 100 per cent, completed by contract.
Island Highway from Mile 129 to Mile 133.75—standard reconstruction commenced
in 1947 was 100 per cent, completed by contract.
On the Canadian Highway between Parksville and Cathedral Grove the standard
reconstruction, which was commenced in 1946, was 95 per cent, completed by contract.
On the Island Highway between Mile 125.48 and Mile 126.52 (Fanny Bay) the
road was reconstructed to a modified standard by our own forces and surfaced by contract with hot plant mix.
Bridges.—Englishman River Bridge at Mile 94.3 on the Island Highway was 100
per cent, completed. Commencement for the concrete-work for this 200-foot steel-truss
span started in 1947.
Coombs Bridge over French Creek at Mile 101.62 on the Canadian Highway, commenced in May, 1948, was delayed by the non-delivery of steel. All concrete-work for
the substructure for this 192-foot steel bridge was undertaken by contract. Only 65
per cent, was completed at the close of the fiscal year.
Cameron River (east) and Cameron River (west) bridges at Miles 113.38 and
113.58 respectively on the Canadian Highway were replaced by beam spans with
concrete abutments. Both bridges were started in 1947 and were 100 per cent, completed by the end of the fiscal year.
The suspension bridge 7.4 miles from the Kelsey Bay wharf was started in 1948.
Centre pier and N. and S. footings were completed by the end of the fiscal year. Poor
weather and high water made further progress impossible.
Three other bridges—Kelsor, Valley, and Lewis—at Miles 2, 2.1, and 3.7 respectively from the Kelsey Bay wharf were reconstructed and shortened considerably.
Hammond Bridge, 3.8 miles from Kelsey Bay wharf, and Frenchman's Bridge on
Frenchman's Road, 1.3 miles from the Sayward Road, were replaced by pile trestles
and considerably shortened.
Nine other bridges were reconstructed during the year, as well as seven bridges
replaced by culvert and fill. Minor repairs and redecking were carried out on ninety-
four sundry bridges.
Bituminous Surfacing.—At the end of the fiscal year there were 25.36 miles of hot
plant mix laid on the Island Highway and 15.09 miles of hot plant mix laid on the 0  18 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
Canadian Highway. In excess of this, 1.2 miles of hot plant mix was used in resurfacing the Errington Road.
Snow-removal.—Many intermittent snowfalls on all important roads were removed,
and a considerable amount of ice-control by sanding was found necessary to ensure
safe driving. This removal lasted for several months and kept men and equipment
steadily employed.
Ferries.—Denman Island Ferry operated satisfactorily throughout the year.
General.—The main roads in this district are fast being located, constructed, and
surfaced to standard, and this is speeding the settlement along both these roads and
the feeder roads. These side-roads and the roads on the various islands in the district
are in urgent need of improvement, and although everything possible is done by the
local maintenance crews, there continues to be a backlog of uncompleted work that is
urgently needed to be done.
Cowichan-Newcastle Electoral District.
Road-construction.—Six and one-half miles on the Cowichan Lake Road and 7 miles
on the South Shore Road, where construction had been started in 1947, were completed.
The Holden-Corso Road was reconstructed for 0.5 mile, and the MacMillan Road
constructed from the Holden-Corso Road to the Nanaimo Sulphate Mill, a distance of
1.1 miles.
Construction was started on the new road from Cassidy on the Island Highway to
Nanaimo Lakes, a distance of 11.7 miles;   this was 50 per cent, completed.
Two contracts were let covering the construction of the Island Highway between
Duncan and Ladysmith, and some progress was made on the construction of this road.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all main and side roads,
with minor betterments, including gravel, culverts, and improved drainage where
most needed.
Bituminous Surfacing.—One mile of Cedar Road was given a flush-coat, and mulch
surface laid down on 1.65 miles of the Cowichan Lake Road and 6.93 miles of the South
Shore Road.
Snotv-removal.—Snow conditions in this district were normal and comparatively
light, except for the Cowichan Lake area. All roads were cleared of snow without
difficulty.
Esquimalt Electoral District.
Construction.-—No major construction was carried out in Esquimalt District during this year.
Maintenance.—All roads were maintained. This included an extensive programme
of clearing, grubbing, grading, drainage, and gravelling on side-roads, with a very
heavy programme of asphaltic repairs on all the surfaced roads in the district.
Bridges.—Two bridges at Village Point on the Mill Bay Road were replaced by
a culvert and fill.    All other bridges were maintained in good condition.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Asphaltic mulch was laid down on 3.44 miles of the Cobble
Hill Road, and 4.53 miles of road treated with a spray-coat.
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions were the most severe in recent years, but by constant attention the crews were able to keep all roads open to traffic, so that the travelling
public suffered the minimum of delay and inconvenience. Sanding was a continuous
operation for four months—November to February, inclusive.
Ferries.—The Brentwood-Mill Bay Ferry operated throughout most of the year,
and preparations were made for the installation of new ferry-landings and a start
made on this work.
Garage.—The Langford garage was kept busy with repairs to district equipment.
The work there was carried out with no unnecessary delay.
More storage-space for equipment is urgently needed. At the present time the
district is forced to leave too much equipment in the open in all weather. district reports. 0 19
General.—Surveys for the proposed diversion of the Island Highway entering
Victoria were completed by the Location Branch.
This district has continued to develop as a rural suburb of the City of Victoria,
and this imposes a heavy load on the district to improve old subdivision roads.
Nanaimo and The Islands Electoral District.
Construction.—No major construction has been carried out in this district for
a considerable number of years, and all of the main roads are now of such a low
standard of construction and surfacing that it is becoming a very serious problem to
maintain them in condition fit to carry present-day traffic. This became very evident
during the spring break-up of 1949, when a considerable mileage of these old roads
became almost impassable, and all roads where the surface consisted of an asphalt
spray treatment became almost an entire loss.
Maintenance.—All roads were maintained during the year, and a considerable
effort at extending drainage in the Nanaimo area was started.
A heavy programme of gravelling was carried out after the break-up in February
and March.
Bridges.—Three bridges were reconstructed and several small bridges replaced by
culverts and fills.    All other bridges were maintained in good condition.
Ferries.—Gabriola Island Ferry continued to give adequate service to the residents
of Gabriola Island.
Snow-removal. — Snow-removal was not a serious problem in this district. All
roads were kept clear and extensive sanding carried out.
Oak Bay Electoral District.
All work in Oak Bay consisted of maintenance of 5.06 miles of secondary highway.
The work was carried out by the municipality.
Saanich Electoral District.
Maintenance.—All roads in this district were maintained in good condition throughout the year. Extensive improvement was made to the drainage of the various roads
and to clearing brush that had been limiting vision on most roads. Continued development of this suburban area has necessitated heavy expenditure for culverts and access
roads.
The sanitary condition of the road ditches is fast becoming a menace to the health
of the district.
Bituminous Surfacing.—All the bituminous surfacing in this district consisted of
reflushing old spray-coated roads that were beginning to show signs of collapse, and in
normal road-patching.    This work was carried out by the maintenance staff.
Ferries.—A start was made on the reconstruction of the Brentwood ferry-landing
and repairs made to the landing at Swartz Bay.
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions were not severe in Saanich, and all roads were
easily kept open to all traffic. Sanding, however, was required almost daily for a period
of three months.
General.—Surveys were continued to determine the best route for an improved
highway between Victoria and 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.
Roads.—Kingsway was under construction. Heavy maintenance was necessary
to alleviate the conditions for traffic during this period. 0  20 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
Considerable effort has been expended improving drainage and shoulders on
Grandview Highway, Central Arterial, and Hastings-Barnet Road. Results of this
work are especially noticeable on the Central Arterial Highway.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The Central Arterial Highway was paved from Boundary
Road to the North Road. Extensive patching was done on the Grandview Highway
and the Hastings-Barnet Road.
Snow-removal.—Due to the exceptionally severe winter, snow-removal was very
heavy for a period of three months. Day and night crews had to be employed. Large
sections of this area are occupied by stores. When the accumulation of snow became
great, it had to be trucked from the area.
Bridges.—The Guichon Bridge on Grandview Highway was replaced by a closed
box culvert and fill.
North Vancouver Electoral District.
General.—The regular maintenance-work of draining, brushing, and gravelling
was carried out.
Bridges.—No. 4 Seymour Creek Bridge, a 200-foot Pratt truss, was carried to 90
per cent, completion, as was the Seymour Slough Bridge, a 70-foot beam span. Both
bridges will be completed early in the ensuing year.
Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral District.
General.—All roads were kept in good repair during the year, and when the frost
came out of the ground, extensive repairs were made to pavements. All ditches and
fences were repaired.
Delta Electoral District.
Flood Damage.—Damage sustained by Delta District during this year's spring
floods was largely concerned with bridges and ferries. Considerable expenditure was
necessary in clearing drift from bridges and landings on the lower part of the Fraser
River.   The east truss on Canoe Pass Bridge had to be supported by false bents.
In addition, seven new bridges were built for Langley Municipality, and nine other
structures were replaced by culvert and fill. In Surrey three bridges were replaced
by culvert and fill, and two bridges were repaired. Expenditures in Langley totalled
approximately $75,000 and in Surrey $6,000.
Barnston Island ferry-landing was taken out by the freshet, and to date has not
been replaced, the ferry now landing on the beach. Plans for the rebuilding of this
landing have been prepared, and it is expected this will be put in hand very shortly.
Roads.—New construction, nil;  reconstruction, nil.
Bituminous Surfacing.—No. 5 Road (66r), Richmond Municipality, 4.88 miles
long, was recapped.
Maintenance.—Patching, centre-line marking, ditching, brushing, and other forms
of maintenance were carried out on all arterial and primary highways. Ditching on
No. 5 Road was a major undertaking in this regard. Signs were repainted and replaced
where necessary. Most signs in the district were reflectorized. Curb and gutter were
constructed through the Peace Arch Park at Douglas Customs.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was heavy and wintry conditions prolonged during the
past winter. Expenditures on snow-removal and sanding were consequently heavier
than in an average year. Roads were kept open and in good condition by crews who
willingly worked long hours and were always on call at any hour of the day and night.
Bridges.—Four bridges located near Fry's Corner were replaced by culvert and
fill; namely, Railway Road, Clayton, Donaldson, and Weaver. Major repairs were
required at Eburne Bridge on several occasions due to bridge being struck by barges
or scows.
Painting of steelwork on Pattullo Bridge was better than 75 per cent, completed
before shut-down was necessitated by bad weather. —
district reports. 0 21
Major repairs to Nicomekl Bridge, near Langley, were also carried out.
School-house Bridge, Barnston Island, was also replaced by culvert and fill.
Mackenzie Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance-work was carried out in a satisfactory manner by our crews; ditching, culvert repairs, and roads and trails were brushed out.
Regular grading was done throughout the year.
Four major projects completed, involving widening, straightening, and realignment of some 12 miles of road.
Bridges.—Many bridges were maintained and three structures were renewed.
Snow-removal.—The winter was exceedingly severe, with continued cold and snowfall in some parts of the district, which entailed continuous work on the part of our
crew for three months.
Dewdney Electoral District.
Flood Damage.—All forces and equipment for the first six months of the fiscal year
were employed on flood work. During the flood a 10-mile detour around the Hatzic
break was reconstructed to take the through traffic. After the water receded, breaks
in the arterial highway such as the Hatzic Gap (which alone took 80,000 cubic yards
of fill material), two breaks on Nicomen Island, and the dam on the north side of the
Agassiz ferry-landing were replaced. Five major bridges were completely replaced, as
well as forty smaller ones. Six miles of secondary roads on Hatzic Prairie and 13 miles
on Nicomen Island were rebuilt.
Roads.—General maintenance-work was carried out on all roads in the district not
in the flood area.
Clarke Road, from the Hastings-Barnet Road in Port Moody to the North Road in
Coquitlam Municipality, was reconstructed.
Work on the reconstruction of the road from Hatzic to Mission was interrupted
by the flood, but was resumed when the emergency work permitted.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The Lougheed Highway from Harris Road in Pitt
Meadows and east through the Village of Mission was recapped.
The Lougheed Highway in Coquitlam Municipality from the North Road to Brunette Street in Maillardville was surfaced.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was exceptionally high for this district. Day and
night snow-removal crews were required for a period of three months.
Extensive repairs to the older stretches of the road had to be carried out when the
winter conditions were over. Considerable trouble was occasioned by snowslides at
Floods, and clearing of these slides was slow and costly due to proximity of Canadian
National Railway tracks. Most of the snow had to be loaded in trucks and hauled in
order not to interfere with train operation.
Bridges.—Katzie, McKay, Whonnock, Pallot No. 1, and Miami Bridges were
replaced with culvert and fill. Mapor repairs were made on the Stave River Bridge so
that it would serve during the construction of a permanent bridge.
Brunette Bridge in Maillardville was replaced with a timber structure.
Necessary maintenance was done on the older wooden bridges.
Chilliwack Electoral District.
Flood Damage.—Considerable damage to roads and bridges was caused by this
year's floods, and all forces and equipment were thrown into flood work for several
weeks. Trans-Canada Highway from Vedder Canal to Cottonwood Corner was flooded.
This is concrete roadway, and outside of one or two washouts no permanent damage
was done. McGillivray Creek Bridge floated off its abutments, but was brought back
in place after the water began to subside. This was an older-type structure due for
replacement and continued to give service until a permanent culvert was installed.
Considerable work was required to keep debris clear of other bridges in this district.
Abbotsford-Mission Road was also under water when a section of the dyke leading to 0 22 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
the Mission Bridge gave way, but no permanent damage resulted. A temporary trestle
was built to carry highway traffic to the Mission Bridge, which previously used the
dyke. The dyke was replaced and the trestle removed during the year. Flood damage
to municipal bridges and roads in Matsqui Municipality was heavy, and our district
rebuilt fourteen bridges and replaced eight bridges with culvert and fill in this municipality, as well as contributing to repairs to municipal roads. Expenditures totalled
slightly more than $58,000. Repairs to municipal roads and bridges in Chilliwack
Municipality totalled close to $2,000.
Roads.—New Construction: A start was made on the construction of a 1.01-mile
of new highway through Abbotsford.
Reconstruction: A section of Trans-Canada Highway 8r, just east of Chilliwack
City, was widened, new ditch-line established, poles moved back, and alignment
improved.    Distance involved was 3,650 lineal feet.
Maintenance: Centre-line marking and patching was carried out on all arterial
highways in the district, also brushing and clearing of ditches and other forms of
maintenance. Considerable improvement to roads in the Columbia Valley and other
unorganized sections of the district was carried out.
Snoiv-removal.—Maintenance crews worked considerable extra hours ploughing
snow in this district.
Bridges.—McGillivray Creek Bridge was replaced by culvert and fill, as was Matsqui Slough No. 2. A new bridge was constructed over Vedder River at Sardis Crossing
on a fifty-fifty basis with the municipality. This latter bridge was rushed to completion, however, to serve as a detour route when danger of flooding on the Trans-Canada
Highway became imminent, and extra costs over and above the original estimate
occasioned by the rush construction were paid in full by the Government. The Vedder
Canal Bridge was reinforced by false bents to hold it until a new bridge could be constructed.    Smaller bridges were inspected and repaired where necessary.
Ferries.—The Agassiz landing was destroyed in the floods. A temporary landing
has been installed by using a floating raft which is raised or lowered on a ramped
gradient to suit water heights. A fin boom was constructed and serves to protect the
landing. The ferry has been inspected, and all repairs suggested in the inspection
report carried out.
New Westminster Electoral District.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Three-quarters of a mile of streets in District Lot 172
were given a bituminous surface, so that practically all streets in this district lot are
now paved to a 20-foot width.
Maintenance.—Several open ditches were eliminated by installation of underground
drains. Catch-basins were kept clean, and brush and weeds cut. Signs were
maintained. ,.••
Snow-removal.—Streets were snow-ploughed on several occasions.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 4 (YALE, KAMLOOPS, SALMON ARM, REVELSTOKE, NORTH AND SOUTH OKANAGAN, COLUMBIA, AND SIMILKAMEEN ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
(W. Ramsay, District Engineer, Kamloops.)
Kamloops Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Extraordinary repairs were required on many roads due to flood
damage. A rainy season in late 1947 was followed by deep snow during the winter,
then a wet, cold, late spring in 1948 brought about a very unusual condition. Continued
hot weather in late May and early June caused a flooding of all creeks and rivers
similar only to that which occurred in 1894.
Road traffic was interrupted at many points until temporary repairs could be
carried out.    The road crews then were generally kept employed during most of the
J DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 23
summer consolidating such repairs and restoring the roads to normal traffic conditions.
Construction.—Little Fort-Bridge Lake Road was extended 8 miles to a point near
the Kamloops District west boundary. This work was through heavy rock-slides and
rock canyons.    Generally an 18-foot sub-grade was secured.
Trans-Canada Highway was given a bituminous mulch surface from near Monte
Creek to the district east boundary, and the Monte Creek Road was also mulch-surfaced
from Monte Creek Station to the district east boundary. Traffic from Kamloops to
Okanagan points was then routed through Monte Creek and south instead of turning
south at Todd Hill.
Very extensive repairs were carried out on the existing paved sections of the
highways.
Bridges.—A new major structure was built across the North Thompson River at
Vavenby. This is made up of two 120-foot Howe trusses, with deck spans and trestle
approaches.
At Tranquille Creek a 40-foot King truss was renewed. At several other crossings,
materials were secured for future renewals.
Many smaller bridges were reinforced to carry traffic until renewals could be
undertaken.
Ferries.—The reaction ferries were maintained safely for traffic.
Yale Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Due to increased traffic and the speed of traffic it was found necessary to do more surface gravelling than usual on the main highways, and screened or
crushed gravel was used to improve the surfaces. The policy of replacing the wooden
culverts with concrete or corrugated-iron pipe was continued this year, and several
car-loads of pipe were installed. Logging operations in the vicinity of Merritt increased
the number of culvert replacements in that area. Standard highway warning signs
were erected throughout the district, and particular attention was given to placing
them on the Trans-Canada Highway from Hope to Spences Bridge.
Major Reconstruction and Improvements.—On the Trans-Canada Highway from
Mile 97.6 to Mile 98.7 reconstruction-work was started on realigning this section and
widening it. East of Hope at Mile 108.8, Scham Creek Bridge was eliminated by
replacing it with a multi-plate culvert and fill. Between Mile 130.6 and Mile 131.1 the
highway was widened and the material used to eliminate Seventeen-Mile Bridge.
From Mile 132.1 to Mile 133.3 the Trans-Canada Highway was widened out to the
30-foot standard width. Ferrabee Bridge and Hell's Gate Bridge were eliminated in
this section by heavy rock fills. One large retaining wall of 1,000 cubic yards of concrete was necessary in this reconstruction.
From Mile 134 to Mile 134.7 the highway was reconstructed to a width of 30 feet,
and Robbins Creek Bridge was replaced with a heavy rock fill.
West of Lytton on the Trans-Canada Highway, three additional miles of road were
reconstructed to a width of 40 feet, which completed the widening between Lytton and
Cisco. At Mile 188.2 on the Trans-Canada Highway, four-tenths of a mile was
widened to 44 feet and Drynoch Bridge eliminated by installing a multi-plate culvert.
On the Spences Bridge-Merritt Road, No. 44, work was started on reconstruction
between Miles 35 and 37.5.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Bituminous surfacing in Yale District included 8 miles of
paving on the Trans-Canada Highway between Hope and Yale and 8 miles on the newly
constructed Southern Trans-Provincial Highway from Hope east. In addition to this,
there were 4.93 miles of road-mixed mulch placed on the Spences Bridge-Merritt
Highway.
Bridges.—During the year seven bridges were eliminated by replacing them with
culverts and fills. This included five on the Trans-Canada Highway and two on side-
roads. Maintenance of the timber bridges in the Fraser Canyon portion of the Trans-
Canada Highway was increasingly difficult due to the age of the structures and to
increased traffic. 0 24 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
Ferries.—The Boston Bar-North Bend Aerial Ferry operated during the twelve
months with only minor interruptions due to repairs. During the twelve months 6,604
vehicles and 36,449 passengers used the ferry.
Floods.—Extreme high water was experienced during the latter part of May,
which forced the closing of the Trans-Canada Highway from May 27th to June 30th,
the Merritt-Spences Bridge Road, No. 44, was closed from May 23rd for a period of
three weeks, and the Merritt-Kamloops Road, No. 35, was also closed from May 30th
for a period of three weeks. Due to the high floods twelve bridges were damaged or
washed out and required repairs or replacement. Considerable damage was done to
the Spences Bridge-Merritt Road at ten different locations, in three of which the road
was completely washed out and had to be replaced with rock fills. The Trans-Canada
Highway suffered considerable damage due to the flood between Yale and Spuzzum on
the Fraser River and Lytton and Spences Bridge on the Thompson River. Considerable
damage was done to a number of side-roads, and all of this repair-work was carried out.
Salmon Arm Electoral District.
The year passed, 1948-49, will be remembered as the one in which high water in
lakes and streams caused by exceptionally heavy rains and early run-off from snow-
fields were the reasons for much damage by flooding and erosion.
April temperatures were high and heavy, and continuous rains in May culminated
in flood conditions by the 24th.
High-water conditions with flooding deteriorated in June until the 12th, when
the Shuswap Lake level reached its peak of 16 feet on the gauges at Sicamous and
Scotch Creek.
In this period much damage was caused to roads and bridges as well as to private
farm lands. Some roads were impassable from flooding or because of washed-out
bridges.
However, the Trans-Canada Highway and the Kamloops-Vernon Road remained
in use with only short interruptions.
Ferry service between landings at Sorrento and Scotch Creek was suspended from
June 5th to 23rd, but the " G. B. Wright," by visiting settlements along the lake-shore,
maintained a service for individuals and essential supplies. At Sicamous the ferry
was unable to operate in June.
Immediate temporary repairs were made to damaged bridges at various points.
The remainder of the summer and autumn to November 2nd, when snow first fell,
was wet and stormy.
The winter was as extraordinary in its way as the summer had been. Snow and
frost prevailed from November until the end of March. At no time did any thaw
occur, as is usual;   instead a steady zero and sub-zero temperature existed.
Highway-maintenance, including bridges, was almost entirely regulated by flood
conditions and results.
Winter snow-removal and sanding were continuous for practically five months.
Highway-construction.—Work proceeded by contract on the Pritchard-Chase Section of the Trans-Canada Highway. By day-labour, 5 miles of the Kamloops-Vernon
Road, Duck Meadows to Monte Lake, was about completed, and preparatory surveys
made for further continuation to Westwold.
On the Canoe-Sicamous Road work was commenced on a diversion to provide
access to the bridge then under construction.
Bridge-construction.—A new bridge structure designed to provide a crossing over
the Shuswap River at Sicamous was commenced, the first pile being driven on October
27th, the last on December 27th. The structure, framed bents on pile foundations,
all creosoted, is 570 feet in length, and there is a 70-foot steel-girder span over the
river-channel and overhead crossing of the Canadian Pacific Railway (Okanagan
branch).   Some of this work was carried on during very low temperatures. district reports. O 25
Asphalt Paving.—Trans-Canada Highway, Monte Creek for 3.5 miles east and
Kamloops-Vernon Road for 5.5 miles to Duck Meadows, was paved with asphalt plant
mix.
I wish to acknowledge the interest and earnest endeavour of all ranks during a
very trying year.
Revelstoke Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance operations were carried out, including gravelling of worst stretches of the Big Bend Highway, No. 13, and Arrowhead Road, No. 71,
to Twelve Mile.
Bridges.—Two new steel bridges with concrete decking were completed, except
for paint-work at Eagle River, No. 159-19, and Kay Falls, No. 158-18.
A new timber bridge on piling was constructed at Beaton, No. 221.
Three major bridges were completely redecked. Minor repairs were carried out
to other bridges and all important bridges inspected.
Construction.—Project No. 41, Three Mile: This work was 80 per cent, completed
and was opened to traffic at the end of December. Side-slopes have to be completed
and the road gravelled.
Project No. 41, Nineteen Mile: Grading was completed on 1 mile of new diversion, but not opened to traffic due to lack of suitable gravel in the vicinity.
The approaches to the two new bridges at Kay Falls were completed.
Project No. 41, Malakwa: Of the 4.3 miles of this project, 2 miles were completed, except for application of crushed gravel, and opened to traffic.
Snow-removal.—A heavy snowfall was experienced—about 13 feet. Apart from
delays of a few hours due to snow-slides, the main roads were kept open at all times.
The Big Bend Highway was ploughed up to Seventeen Mile.
North Okanagan Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General conditions throughout the year were poor, excessive rains
and flood causing considerable damage to roads, culverts, and bridges, interfering
with general maintenance and improvements to roads. Removal of rock at Weir's
Bluff, Trans-Canada Highway, drilling of rock on the Enderby-Mabel Lake Road, and
the removal of several thousand yards of rock on the Cameron's Point Road were completed. Dangerous places on numerous roads were widened, and 41,434 yards of gravel
distributed.
Major Reconstruction.—Okanagan Highway, No. 5, from Armstrong to Enderby,
7 miles, under contract to Marwell Construction Company in 1947, was completed by
September. From Vernon south 6.5 miles is being reconstructed by the Arnett Construction Company, and was 80 per cent, completed by the end of the fiscal year.
Bridges.—A new concrete and steel-girder bridge was erected over Davis Creek
by the Marwell Construction Company. Cherry Creek Bridge was reconstructed with
four 19-foot trestle bays and a 60-foot King truss, also Eight Mile, Larch, Endall,
Butter's, Goose Lake Reserve were reconstructed and twenty-eight repaired; also
a number of culverts were repaired and installed.
Surfacing.—A fog-coat was applied to the Vernon-Slocan Highway from 5 miles
west of Lumby to Lumby.
Snow-removal.—Extremely heavy snow and a long severe winter kept our staff and
equipment very busy, but all roads were kept open during the winter. The Monashee
Road was officially closed.
Flood-control.—All highways that were under water have been raised; also all
bridges and culverts washed out were replaced, with the exception of two which have
been replaced with temporary structures. 0 26

South Okanagan Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Minor improvements in alignment of local roads were made. Extensive regravelling of local roads was continued, along with ditching, weed-control, and
some local dust-control.    All paved roads were patched.
Surfacing.—Paving on 7.37 miles of main highway was completed between Postill
and Winfield, and also 5 miles of Pulvi-mixer preparation between Westbank Ferry
and Westbank.
Reconstruction. — Work continued on the Okanagan Highway sections between
McDougall Creek-Westbank, Westbank Ferry-McDougall Creek, Postill-Winfield, and
Reid's Corner.    These sections were all completed by the end of the fiscal year.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was heavier than usual, but all roads were kept open
even though extra equipment had to be used on some of the narrower roads.
Flood-control.—A heavy flood-control programme was undertaken. Flooding resulted in much damage to bridges and roads, and, as a result, several sections of roads
had to be replaced and the grade raised on many in order to maintain traffic.
Bridges.—The flood took out three small bridges which were replaced. Seven
other structures were undermined to some extent and required special maintenance-
work. Three additional replacement bridges were constructed in the Winfield area,
and work was, commenced on a new Mission Creek, No. 33, Bridge and on Mission
Creek, No. 6, North Fork Bridge.
Ferries.—The severe winter conditions placed a heavy load on the ferries. The
lake was frozen over for some seven weeks, starting around January 14th, and great
difficulty was experienced in keeping the boats on schedule. However, no complete
tie-up resulted.
Similkameen Electoral District.
Roads.—General maintenance was carried out on all travelled roads, with special
attention given to fruit-haul roads during the hauling season. The Department's
forces were much hindered in the early part of the year through flooding in the Similkameen and Okanagan Valleys.
The Osoyoos Orchard Road was realigned and rebuilt for its entire length of 2
miles.
The Island Road at Oliver was raised for about three-quarters of a mile of its
length with coarse gravel.
The Sawmill Road at Oliver was raised about 3 feet for a distance of 1 mile.
The main road from Kaleden Junction to the Town of Kaleden was partially
rebuilt and paved.
The Okanagan Highway was realigned and repaved from the top of Kruger Hill
to its junction with the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway at Kaleden Junction.
On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway work continued on the Hope-Princeton Section in this district. The Princeton-Hedley Section was gravelled and paved.
The Keremeos-Kaleden Junction Section was completed and paved.
The Princeton-Merritt Road was realigned and rebuilt for 6 miles.
Bridges.—New bridges were built at Princeton and Hedley. These bridges were
built by contract.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal costs were high, especially in the western part of
the district. A special crew was brought in to open the Hope-Princeton Section on
the Princeton-Merritt Road; several slides occurred this year, causing the road to be
blocked for short periods of time on several occasions. No other roads in the district
were blocked at any time.
Flood.—On June 25th the Similkameen River started flooding and by June 28th
the Similkameen Valley was experiencing possibly the worst flood in its history. At
Princeton the old Great Northern Bridge, which was being used temporarily as a highway bridge, collapsed.    On the old Princeton-Hedley Road the approach to the Tula- 0 28 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
meen Bridge immediately north of the Town of Princeton washed out and on the
same road two washouts occurred at Five Mile Creek, and on the new Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway between Princeton and Hedley two breaks occurred at Norman
Flat.
At Hedley, Twenty Mile Creek flooded and washed out seven of the bridges crossing
it. The new abutment at Hedley was overturned and the creek ran through the Town
of Hedley, overturning houses and doing considerable damage.
The road was cut in several places between Hedley and Olalla. Portions of the
Town of Cawston were inundated.    In the Okanagan Valley damage was light.
During and after the flood period our forces were taxed to the utmost keeping
floating debris away from roads and bridges.
Columbia Electoral District.
Maintenance.—All roads were graded and maintained. A number of sides were
gravelled and widened. Due to flood conditions, considerable extra work was necessary, particularly on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway and all side-roads crossing the
Columbia River.
Construction.—One and one-half miles of reconstruction was carried out by day-
labour on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway, approximately 80 per cent, completed.
Bridges.—Two bridges were reconstructed—one on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway and one on the West Side Road. Very extensive bridge repairs were carried out,
particularly on the Big Bend Highway and Golden-Leanchoil Highway.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Five and one-half miles of plant-mixed pavement were
laid on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway, 2.5 miles of surface treatment on the Athalmer Road, and 1 mile on the Bench Road.
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions were normal throughout the district, except for
one very heavy fall in February. All roads, except the Big Bend Highway from
Donald to Boat Encampment, were kept open and in good condition.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 5   (CRANBROOK AND FERNIE
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Cranbrook Electoral District.
Reconstruction.—General Construction Company's contract for the Fort Steele-
Wardner Section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway was completed; total
distance, 13.3 miles of standard highway.
Maintenance. — Flood damage to highways and bridges occurred during June.
Considerable portions of the Kootenay-Columbia Highway between Marysville and
Kimberley were washed out through flooding of Mark Creek and were rebuilt. The
channel of Mark Creek was cleaned and straightened for a distance of 3 miles, and
heavy riprap placed along highway embankment slopes to prevent future washouts.
The spring break-up was most severe, and a large percentage of the maintenance
appropriation was expended in repairing the defects. Mowing and cleaning of ditches
and culverts was carried out. Maintenance, gravelling, and grading was carried out
on all rural roads.
Snow-removal. — Snowfall was well above normal, with much drifting, and all
equipment worked almost continually from November until March.
Bridges.—Substructures for the Moyie River and Yahk Slough Bridges at Yahk
were completed by Highway Construction Company.
All bridges were inspected, and considerable repairs made to those damaged by
flood-waters.
Fernie Electoral District.
All roads throughout the district were maintained. The 2-mile section of road
through Michel and Natal was completed and surfaced with plant-mixed mulch.   Grad- DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 29
ing of 2 miles of new road through Fernie and gravel surface was completed. This
new road through the City of Fernie is a great improvement.
About 5 miles east from Wardner was constructed on the new location.
General maintenance on all bridges was carried on throughout the district. The
steel bridges Little Fairy, North Fernie, and West Fernie were completed and painted.
Considerable damage was caused by the high water of May and June.
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions were about normal, but a number of slides came
down, causing considerable work.
Considerable damage was caused by spring break-up. A long, continuous cold
spell, as low as 45 below, drove the frost well down.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 5a (NELSON-CRESTON, GRAND FORKS-GREENWOOD, KASLO-SLOCAN, AND ROSSLAND-TRAIL ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
(District Engineer, 0. P. Roberts.)
Nelson-Creston Electoral District.
Road Construction.—The Nelson-Nelway Road from Mile 8.6 to Mile 26.1 was
prepared for pavement. This included the completion of 5.4 miles of major construction
by contract, minor construction of 4.6 miles by district forces, and laying base course
of 12.3 miles by district forces.   This section was paved by contract.
Also on the Nelson-Nelway Road, from Mile 33 to Mile 36, construction of a
0.7-mile diversion and other reconstruction in the vicinity of the South Fork of the
Salmo River was commenced.
On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway between Nelson and Balfour, at Mile
4.5 to Mile 4.9, major reconstruction was 85 per cent, completed. This work included
clearing, grubbing, grading, and construction of concrete retaining-walls and gutters.
The Southern Trans-Provincial Highway from Gray Creek to Kuskanook, 26.4
miles, was prepared for paving. District forces did widening and installed culverts.
The base course was crushed and laid by contract.
In the same section 0.6 mile in the solid-rock section south of Goat Creek was
widened to standard.
Paving was completed from Kootenay Bay to Destiny Bay, a distance of 21.9 miles.
On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway between the Goat River and Goatfell,
east of Creston, reconstruction-work by district forces continued. The work included
clearing, grubbing, grading, and placing select and base courses. At the end of the year
10.5 miles were ready for paving, of which 4.9 miles were paved.
The upper road between Creston and Wynndel was widened to a two-lane road and
gravelled, as it was used as a main thoroughfare while the Southern Trans-Provincial
between Creston and Wynndel was flooded.
Maintenance.—Road-maintenance was carried on as well as possible, consistent with
the availability of graders and other machines required for the district construction-
work.
Patching of the asphalt surface between Nelson and Robson and between Nelson
and Fraser's Landing was a major work and was hampered by wet weather. S.C.O. as
a dust-layer was sprayed on 23 miles of main and farm roads, mostly in the vicinity
of orchards.
The spring flood covered the Castlegar-Nelson Section of the Southern Trans-
Provincial at the west end of the district.
The Southern Trans-Provincial Highway on the dyked area and from Creston to
Wynndel was submerged for over a month.
Many other sections of road were damaged by the flood but were not closed for
more than a few hours. O 30 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
Bridges.—A new three-span concrete and steel-stringer type bridge was erected
across the South Fork of the Salmo River to replace Bridge No. 161, Nelson-Nelway
No. 11.   The bridge was not opened to traffic.
Work was commenced on construction of a 20-foot and a 50-foot concrete and
steel-stringer spans at Kid Creek to replace Bridge No. 51, Creston-Goatfell No. 5.
It was necessary to replace many bridges in the Creston area due to the flood.
A new wooden stringer span was erected at Lockhart Creek to replace Bridge
No. 84, Gray Creek-Creston No. 3, washed away by the flood.
Routine maintenance, such as redecking, and special maintenance necessitated by
floods were undertaken on other bridges in the district.
Ferries.—A new steel twenty-eight-car ferry was placed in commission on the
Nelson-North Shore Ferry in October. Allied work required included placing
additional anchors and widening and extending the approaches and paving them.
The West Creston Ferry and the Nick's Island Ferry were out of service while
flood-water covered the flats.
Ice in the winter caused trouble on the Creston ferries.
Low water below the zero mark in the spring necessitated special work on the
approaches to the Nelson Ferry and the Harrop-Longbeach Ferry, and also at the
Kootenay Bay berth of the M.V. "Anscomb."
Snow-removal.—A long winter with heavy snowfalls and few thaws necessitated
almost continuous snow-ploughing. Main roads were all cleared promptly at all times,
but service on the side-roads requiring tractor ploughs was given in rotation, and many
roads were closed for short periods.
Grand Forks-Greenwood Electoral District.
Roads.—All roads were well maintained throughout the district, due mostly to the
fact we have been getting more and better equipment. Considerable work was done on
the Cascade-Paulson Road, especially Alpine Inn Section, where a very steep hill was
eliminated and a new section of 0.3 mile constructed on a 5-per-cent. grade.
Departmental Crusher Q-21 worked east and west of Grand Forks and stock-piled
29,973 tons of 2-inch, 20,706 tons of %-inch, 41,232 tons of 2-inch, and 35,762 tons of
%-inch gravel respectively. This material is to be used on projects under construction
and about to be constructed.
Construction of 5 miles west of Grand Forks was proceeded with and approximately
90 per cent, completed. One-half of this section is on new location, which reduced the
grade from 12 to 6.5 per cent, and eased the curves, making a vast improvement in
driving conditions. A survey was completed on 1 mile of road leading to Carson-
Danville Customs, but only about 15 per cent, of this work was done during the year.
The road leading up from Christina Lake to Fife for a distance of 1 mile was
widened, several sharp turns improved, and given a covering of good gravel.
Snow-removal.—Snow and ice conditions were more severe than average. All roads
were kept open throughout the winter, but more time and expenditure was incurred
due to ice, which required regular sanding.
Bridges.—Major repairs were carried out on several bridges with new deck and
tie system, also new caps and corbals, etc.
The bridge over Franklin Creek was renewed with a trestle structure on concrete
footings, replacing a 60-foot King truss. Beaverdell No. 6 was renewed with a King
truss on a much improved plan. East of Grand Forks 2% miles a new bridge was built
over the Kettle River, consisting of three Howe-truss spans 110 feet in length with
approaches. This bridge was necessary in order to improve road conditions from
Grand Forks to Gilpin on the south side of the river. DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 31
Flood Damage.—Flood damage during high water was light in this district compared to most other districts. However, there was considerable damage to the Grand
Forks-Franklin Road, Beaverdell area, and adjacent to Grand Forks.
Kaslo-Slocan Electoral District.
General—The highways in the Kaslo-Slocan District were kept in a generally good
condition throughout the year. The severity of the frost-action caused considerable
damage, but this was remedied as quickly as possible.
Major Programme.—Two major projects were undertaken during the fiscal year.
The first was the placing of curbs, gutters, and catch-basins on three blocks of Broadway Street in Nakusp, and 0.5 mile of paving, which consisted of nine blocks on
Broadway and a short section of the Slocan-Arrow Lakes Highway. The second
project was the replacement of a large trestle at Mile 27 on the Slocan-Arrow Lakes
Highway with a culvert and fill. The latter project was approximately 50 per cent,
completed as at March 31st, 1949.
Bridges.—A steel and concrete bridge 108 feet long over Deep Creek, Mile 129,
Slocan-Arrow Lakes Highway, was completed. With the exception of a 60-foot King
truss at North Fork of Carpenter Creek Bridge No. 214, constructed under mines vote,
no new bridges were reconstructed, but the bridge crew was kept continually at work
throughout the year on general maintenance, redecking, removal of cribs, and minor
repairs.
Ferries.—The two ferries, Needles-Fauquier and East and West Arrow Park, were
in continuous service throughout the year. Difficulties were encountered during the
winter freeze-up due to ice conditions, but these were remedied.
Snow-removal.—All snow-removal equipment of the district was kept exceedingly
busy from November 15th to March 1st. At times it was necessary to alleviate the
load on our forces by hiring outside equipment. Fortunately, some new snow equipment
was received before heavy snowfalls occurred. Slides at times blocked the roads to
traffic, but these were removed as quickly as possible. Our ploughs travelled 26,368
miles, and 320.7 miles of roads were kept open throughout the year.
Flood Damage.—During the spring considerable damage was done to both bridges
and highways by flood-waters, necessitating considerable work, which we were unable
to complete before the end of the fiscal year.
Rossland-Trail Electoral District.
Construction and Reconstruction of Roads.—Trail-Salmo: A contract was given
for the reconstruction of 2.1 miles on this road between Bear Creek Bridge and the top
of the Fruitvale Hill; 1.1 miles of this was new location. Grades and alignment were
greatly improved, and the road widened to standard width and gravelled, ready for
surfacing. This contract was later extended from the end of pavement at Beaver Falls
to a point 1.1 miles north of Fruitvale, but, due to the winter conditions, little work
was done on this section.
Rossland-Paterson: Work was continued by day-labour on this project between
Rossland city boundary and Silica, a distance of 1.68 miles; 1.15 miles of this was new
location. Alignment and grades were greatly improved, but the winter conditions
prevented completion of the work.
Rossland-Red Mountain Ski Lift: Considerable work was done to widen and
improve this road, which is used a great deal during the winter season.
Fruitvale Subdivision Roads: About 1 mile of new farm road was built in this area.
Maintenance of Roads.—All roads were maintained during the year, and considerable gravelling, etc., was done, especially on the Rossland-Cascade Section of the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, No. 3, and on the Trail-Salmo Road. O 32 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
About 2 miles of the Fruitvale-Columbia Gardens Road were widened and one mile
gravelled.
Bridges.—No new bridges were built, but existing ones were maintained and new
stringers and decking put in as required.
Snow-removal.—Due to the very severe weather, ice conditions were much worse
than usual, and a great deal of sanding was necessary.
All main roads and most secondary roads were kept open, except the Rossland-
Cascade Section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, No. 3. This road was
closed on account of snow on January 4th, 1949, but, due to the freezing of the
Columbia River and the consequent shut-down of the Northport Ferry, the road was
reopened on January 25th, 1949, and kept open until February 18th, 1949.
Castlegar Ferry.—Due to the abnormally high water and the flooding of the highway on each side of the ferry, the Castlegar Ferry was compelled to cease operating
from June 3rd to 21st, inclusive. During this time, pedestrian traffic and mail were
handled by motor-launch, and advantage was taken of the shut-down to overhaul the
machinery and repaint the ferry. Apart from this, the usual twenty-four-hour service
was maintained throughout the year.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 6  (LILLOOET AND CARIBOO
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
(District Engineer, J. W. Miers, Williams Lake.)
Lillooet Electoral District.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out throughout the district,
acquisition of heavier grading equipment materially helping in keeping gravelled roads
in good condition. Some minor reconstruction was done on setters' roads in widening,
ditching, and gravelling.
Major Reconstruction.—Dawson, Wade & Company, contractors on Project No. 12,
completed the 10.2-mile diversion between Mile 57 and Mile 70 on the Cariboo Highway.
Bituminous Surfacing.—No major surfacing or resurfacing was carried on, but
4.4 miles of fog-coat was applied south of Cache Creek on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Bridges.—No major bridge construction was undertaken. Thirty bridges received
general repairs.
Flood Damage.—Much damage was done to roads and bridges generally throughout
the districts. The scars left by washouts will bear evidence to the severity of the flood
for future generations.
One Howe-truss span (Cayoosh Creek) was carried away and abandoned. Dunlop
King truss (Cayoosh Creek) was washed away and replaced by a 70-foot laminated-cord
and main-braces structure. Harpers Mill King truss (Bonaparte River) was carried
away and replaced by a pile-trestle structure. The matter of replacing bridges with
pipe culverts was generally proven to be impractical on most of the roads in this
district.
Ferries.—The reaction ferries along the Fraser River at Lytton, High Bar, and
Big Bar were maintained safely for traffic. The Pavilion Rowboat Ferry was also
maintained.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was again generally heavy; 13,044 snow-plough miles
kept open 651 miles, at an average cost of $34.47 per mile.
Cariboo (North) Electoral District.
Roads.—General maintenance was carried out on all travelled roads. Progressive
improvements were made on Fraser Road at Narcosli Creek, approximately 2 miles of
road being rebuilt, eliminating several bad turns and improving the grade on the
Narcosli Hill. DISTRICT REPORTS. 0 33
Improvements were carried out on the Barkerville Road between Wingdam and
Wells.   Considerable work was done on the McKenzie Road.
Major Reconstruction: Australian Ranch Revision, Project No. 61, was continued,
but due to heavy rain the project was not completed.
Bridges.—General maintenance was carried out on several small bridges.
Ferries.—Four ferries were operated during the year.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal costs were fairly high and quite a bit of sanding
was done; 388.5 miles of road were kept open last winter.
Cariboo (South) Electoral District.
Maintenance.—All highways in the district were maintained in reasonably good
condition throughout the season, notwithstanding a late spring and an exceptionally
wet year.
Reconstruction and Improvement.—Cariboo Road, No. 10: The reconstruction and
gravelling of two sections of this highway between Mile 76 and Mile 83 and from Mile
94 to the 100-Mile House were completed by the contractors, Dawson, Wade & Company.
This highway is now ready for paving from the south boundary to the Cariboo District
at Mile 76 to the 100-Mile House.
Arterial Highway No. 47r: This highway, which lies within the Village Municipality of Williams Lake, was improved by the construction of concrete curbs and gutters
on Oliver Street and Railway Avenue, and was paved for the distance of 1 mile with
plant-mixed asphaltic concrete.
Williams Lake-57-Mile, No. 37: Four miles of this road were ditched and regravelled.
Chilcotin Road, No. 18: Major improvements as to alignment and grade were made
on Chimney Creek Hill and at Riske Creek, a total of approximately 1 mile being
reconstructed.
Big Creek, No. 306: On the south side of Big Creek, in the vicinity of the Erick-
son ranch, a half-mile diversion was constructed to take the road out of the valley and
avoid a flooded section.
Bridge Lake (North), No. 304: Approximately 2 miles of this road, which is a
rural mail route and proposed school-bus route, were reconstructed to wider standard
with improved grade and alignment.
Bridges.—Chilcotin Bridge No. 341 at Alexis Creek was completed, with the exception of a few minor details which had to be left until low water.
A new pile trestle was constructed across Quesnel Lake at Likely to replace Likely
Bridge, No. 141.
Newton Bridge, No. 376, was reconstructed as to superstructure.
A serious accident was narrowly averted when one of the main cable anchor-bolts
on the Chilcotin Suspension Bridge failed due to an excessive load of cattle. The
bridge had to be closed to all traffic until repairs were completed.
Several bridges, including Churn Creek, Gasperd Creek, and Bambrick Bridge over
Big Creek, were destroyed during the extraordinary spring freshet, and a number of
other bridges were damaged.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal was carried out on 1,027 miles at a cost of $20.72
per mile.   The snowfall was generally above the average for the district.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 7  (PRINCE RUPERT, ATLIN,
AND SKEENA ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
(District Engineer, J. C. Brady, Prince Rupert).
Skeena Electoral District.
Roads.—The majority of the work carried on was reconstruction after the flood of
the Bulkley and Skeena Rivers in May and June. The highway between Kitwanga
and Usk was closed due to floods from May 28th until June 7th and between Terrace
and Tyee from May 24th until June 30th.
2 0 34 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
Highway and local roads were maintained in the usual manner. The clearing of
right-of-way, which is a major problem, was a concentrated effort during the year,
and considerable gains were made.
A programme of regravelling approximately 20 miles of road was carried out.
The new approach to the south end of the Smithers Bridge was completed.
A large programme of improving alignment and gravelling on Kalum Road was
carried out.
Kitwanga Valley Road was improved and gravelled for 10 miles, and new construction from Mile 10 to Kitwancool Village, a distance of 5 miles, was 60 per cent,
completed.
Five hundred and fifty lineal feet of sidewalk through the Indian reserve at Port
Essington was 75 per cent, rebuilt.
Bridges.—All bridges were kept in repair during the year. The following is the
main work done on bridges other than routine maintenance:—
Camp Creek Bridge:   Seven bays of pile trestle completed.
Cory (Hot Springs) Bridge:   Replaced with cedar culvert and fill.
Furlong Creek Bridge No. 1:  Replaced with cedar culvert and fill.
Furlong Creek Bridge No. 2:  Three bays of pile trestle completed.
Green Creek Bridge:   Replaced with cedar culvert and fill.
Lean-to Creek Bridge:   Nine bays of pile trestle completed.
McPhee Bridge No. 1:  Replaced with cedar culvert and fill.
McPhee Bridge No. 2:  Replaced with cedar culvert and fill.
Sloop Creek Bridge:  Replaced with concrete culvert and fill.
Kitwancool Bridge (Indian reserve) : 100-foot bridge on rock-filled crib piers
completed.
Williams Creek Bridge: 100-foot Howe-truss and three 19-foot approach spans
50 per cent, completed.
Terrace Bridge:  Three new 50-foot steel spans erected on concrete piers completed.
Ferries.—Usk Ferry:  Replaced by new 10-ton ferry on steel pontoons.
Mining Roads and Trails.—Improvements were made on several mining trails.
Snow-removal.—All major roads were kept open throughout the winter except
from Remo to Skeena City, which was closed from January 1st, 1949, until April 29th,
1949.
Flood Damage.—During May and June, 1948, the Bulkley and Skeena Rivers were
much higher than normal spring high water, and considerable damage was done to
roads and bridges along these rivers.
Prince Rupert Electoral District.
Roads.—General improvement and maintenance on all travelled roads was continued. The large increase in local traffic necessitated increased and continuous grading
at the western end of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, and the Port Edward
Road required more surfacing material than in other years.
Widening was completed on Dodge Cove Road, Digby Island.
Reconstruction of Port Clements-Tlell Road on Queen Charlotte Islands was continued and completed up to Mile 8.3.
Diversion of part of Skidegate-Tlell Road on account of sea erosion was necessary
and satisfactorily completed.
Ditching and brush-cutting was carried out on all roads.
Trails were kept in good repair and free from windfalls.
Bridges.—The fourth of the new bridges required on Port Clements-Tlell Road
was completed.   All other bridges were kept in good repair.
Wharves.—All warehouses on Prince Rupert Wharf were kept in good repair.
Snowfall.—The excessive and unprecedented early snowfall constituted a major  0 36 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
problem from November until April. Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was closed
early by 6 feet of drifting snow at one fall, followed by successive thaws and further
snowfalls, blocking the road with practically solid ice, against which machinery made
slow progress. Such unexpected conditions were extraordinary and are not expected
to recur frequently.
Atlin Electoral District.
General maintenance constituted the major portion of the work undertaken by
the Department during 1948-49, a good part of which was financed by the Department
of Mines. Most of the trails in the district were brushed out and repaired where
necessary. The road from McDame Creek to the Alaska Highway was made passable
to trucks and is now practically completed. Further work was done on the new bridge
over Bitter Creek, the span being put up before the snow came and the work had to
be closed down.
South Atlin.
Arterial Highway No. 72r : General maintenance-work was done on this highway.
Bear River Road, No. 63: Gravelling and general maintenance. Bridges repaired.
Salmon River Road, No. 66: Ditching, gravelling, and general maintenance.
Stewart-Hyder Road, No. 102: Ditches and culverts cleared and surface-patched.
Kitsault River Road, No. 194: Gravelling, ditching, and general maintenance done
by Torbrit Silver Mines, Limited.
Big Missouri Road, No. 73:   General surface repairs and repairs to bridges.
Bear-Nass Trail:   Brushed out and repaired.    Small bridges rebuilt.
American Creek Trail:   General maintenance.
North Atlin.
The work done in this area consisted mainly of general maintenance to roads and
bridges by way of grading, gravelling, ditching, and redecking and repairing bridges.
Stikine.
Telegraph Creek-Dease Lake Road, No. 51: Surface repairs and general maintenance-work.
Glenora Road, No. 50: A considerable amount of repair-work and rebuilding was
required on this road as a slide in the Stikine River made it very difficult for the
river-boat to reach Telegraph Creek. The supplies had to be landed at Glenora and
hauled from there by truck.
The remainder of the roads in this area received general maintenance by way of
grading, gravelling, and ditching.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8  (FORT GEORGE AND OMINECA
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
(District Engineer, S. A. Cunliffe, Prince George.)
Fort George Electoral District.
Maintenance.—All roads throughout the district were maintained during the year.
Considerable difficulty was again experienced during the spring break-up with
frost-boils.    A number of these were removed and replaced with more stable material.
Maintenance of the Hart Highway was taken over by the Department to Mile 14
north of Summit Lake or 46 miles north of Prince George.
Tax-work carried out by farmers, on side-roads, assisted greatly in brushing and
replacing worn culverts.
Reconstruction. — A 2-mile section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
about 14 miles east of Prince George was rebuilt after the spring break-up because of
frost damage. DISTRICT reports. 0 37
At Tete Jaune, on the North Thompson-Okanagan Highway, 1 mile was rebuilt
to a revised grade after the spring high water.
Construction.—A start was made to extend the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway eastwards from Sinclair Mills toward Longworth. This section is largely through
muskeg, and the continuous rains slowed the work and added greatly to its cost.
Bridges.—No new construction or reconstruction of bridges was carried out during
the year.    However, thirty-three bridges were repaired and maintained.
The extreme high water of the spring in the Salmon and Willow Rivers caused
a large amount of bank erosion, endangering the bridges on those rivers. The Willow
River Bridge was protected by riprap, and the Salmon River bridge and Hart Highway
were protected by rock-filled cribs.
It was necessary to rebuild dolphins and shear-boom at the Fraser River Bridge
at McBride because of flood damage.
Ferries.—All ferries were maintained during the year. Miworth Ferry was not
operating, service having been discontinued. Ferry pontoons, cable, etc., are still
stored at Miworth.
Snow-removal.—A snowfall of 87.5 inches was recorded at the Prince George Airport, but this amount was greatly exceeded in the easterly part of the district. Contrary
to the usual thing, there was no midwinter thaw so that no snow disappeared, and
remained until the spring.
A total of 710 miles were kept open, equipment ploughing 24,127 snow-plough
miles at a cost of $104.65 per mile.
Additional quantities of slat and wire snow-fencing were used to good effect.
Buildings.—All buildings were maintained.
An extension was made to the equipment-sheds in McBride, providing more
accommodation for machinery at that point.
A new stock-room and storeman's office was provided for in Prince George. Two
new electric gas-pumps were installed in the Prince George yard.
Omineca (West) Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Maintenance of all roads was carried out in the usual manner. The
wet weather during the working season made it difficult to keep the roads in the best
of condition owing to the heavy traffic.
Bridges.—Three bridges were reconstructed during the year, and repairs were
made to fifteen others.
Ferries.—The Francois Lake Ferry was adequately maintained during the year.
A stepped-up time-table and increased hours of operation were necessary because of
the increased traffic from the country south of the lake. A contract was awarded to
Yarrows, Limited, of Victoria, for the construction of a new and larger ferry. This
was built at Yarrows' yards, then dismantled, shipped via Canadian National Railway
to Burns Lake, and hauled to Francois Lake, where reassembly was commenced. One
cottage was built for the use of the ferrymen, being 80 per cent, complete at the end of
the fiscal year.
River-bank Protection.—Flood conditions in the Bulkley and Buck Rivers made it
necessary to do some river-bank protection in the vicinity of Telkwa and Houston when
new road-work carried out last year was in danger.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall throughout the district was heavier than usual. During
the winter 488.72 miles of road were kept open at an average cost of $60.61 per mile.
Buildings.—A new Government building was built in Burns Lake during the year.
Approximately 5 acres of land was purchased from the Department of Indian
Affairs for the construction of new buildings for the Department at Burns Lake. This
site was cleared.
British Columbia Police buildings were maintained during the year. 0 38 public works report, 1948-49.
Omineca (East) Electoral District.
Maintenance.—Maintenance of all highways was carried out in the usual manner.
Construction and Improvement.—Our forces were kept busy during the early part
of the season in trying to cope with the flood damage and prevention of damage.
Dykes were constructed south of the Canadian National Railway tracks in Vanderhoof in order to prevent flooding of roads and private property south of the Canadian
National Railway. All dykes were very effective, and in every case we were successful
in preventing any damage being done.
Considerable work was necessary on a number of our roads by way of raising
them above the high-water levels.
About 16 miles of regravelling was carried out on the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway west of Fort Fraser.
Bridges.—The Nation River Bridge No. 50, on the Manson Creek Road was put in
good condition by renewing stringers, counter-braces, flood and hand rail.
The Necoslie River Bridge, No. 23; Stuart River Bridge, No. 22; and Vanderhoof
Trestles No. 1 and No. 2 received similar repairs.
Several small bridges were renewed, and, in all, twenty-six bridges were repaired
and put in good condition.
Ferries.—All ferries in the district operated as usual.
A large scow was placed on Germansen Lake in order that mining interests might
facilitate the moving of freight from the east end of Germansen Lake to Twin Creek
and other mining sections.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was fairly heavy during the winter. In all, 425 miles
of road were kept open during the winter at an average cost of $52.55 per mile; 9,588
snow-plough miles were covered by our units in order to accomplish this work.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8a  (PEACE RIVER DISTRICT).
(District Engineer, W. R. Workman, Pouce Coupe.)
Peace River Electoral District.
Roads.—All roads throughout the district were maintained, with tax labour being
employed to advantage on many of the minor roads. Many timber culverts were
replaced by either metal-pipe or creosoted wood-stave culverts.
Reconstruction was carried out on 10.15 miles, 6.75 miles of which was on Fort
St. John-Hudson Hope, No. 1; 1.9 miles on Pouce Coupe-Rolla, No. 5; and 1.5 miles
on Fort Nelson, No. 71.
Seven and one-quarter miles of new road were constructed in the Department of
Veterans' Affairs subdivision of St. John Indian Reserve No. 172. In the vicinity of
Groundbirch 0.6 mile of new road was constructed, thus providing an additional outlet
to the Hart Highway.
During the winter all roads on the snow-removal programme were kept open continuously.
Bridges.—Six bridges were reconstructed and six replaced by culverts and fills.
New decks were laid on four and general maintenance carried out on sixteen others.
Ferries.—The Clayhurst and Hudson Hope Ferries operated satisfactorily throughout the season.   A new engine was installed in the Hudson Hope Ferry. classification OF highways.

PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1948-49.
REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER.
The statement of gross expenditure for the fiscal year submitted herein shows a
total of $31,046,038.57, an increase of $4,526,412.40 over the previous fiscal year. This
expenditure involved the handling of 69,000 vouchers, an increase of approximately 10
per cent, over 1947-48. In addition to the large volume of vouchers, 16,000 requisitions
were passed through the Accounts Branch. The sum of $1,646,262.29 passed through
our Collectorate Account, a slight decrease from the previous year, which is accounted
for by the fact that certain transactions formerly on a cash basis, amounting to approximately $650,000, were taken care of by a system of interdepartmental debit and credit
notes, which was responsible for a considerable decrease in the number of cheques
written.
From the foregoing it will be noted that a considerable increase occurred in the
volume of work performed by the district offices and at headquarters, and I am pleased
to report that it was handled with efficiency and dispatch.
A series of conferences attended by district clerks from all district offices was held
at headquarters, extending monthly from December, 1948, to March, 1949. At these
conferences, many problems involving all phases of office administration and relative
subjects were thoroughly discussed to the benefit of all officials concerned.
During the period under review a training system was inaugurated with a view
to making available an immediate supply of trained clerical personnel to provide for
replacements occasioned by retirement, sickness, and holiday leave in our district offices.
This system has shown good results to date and will be developed further as the
necessity arises.
It is a pleasure to place on record my appreciation of the loyal and efficient co-operation of all members of the staff at headquarters and in the field.
W. Wright,
Departmental Comptroller.
