1955  To His Honour Frank Mackenzie Ross, C.M.G., M.C.,
Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour:
Herewith I beg respectfully to submit the Annual Report of the Department of Public
Works for the fiscal year ended March 31st, 1955, in compliance with the provisions of
the " Public Works Act."
P. A. GAGLARDI,

Office of the Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings,
October 6th, 1955.  PUBLIC WORKS REPORT
REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER
Douglas Building,
Victoria, B.C., October 6th, 1955.
Hon. P. A. Gaglardi,
Minister of Highways, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—A report on the activities of the Department for the fiscal year 1954-55 is
herewith submitted for your consideration.
Contracts were let for 83.62 miles of highways, the principal work undertaken comprising 30.94 miles on the Trans-Canada Highway, 3.43 miles on the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway, 29.51 miles on the Cariboo Highway, and 7.63 miles on the
Okanagan Highway. Other main roads throughout the Province that were constructed
or reconstructed comprised 51.62 miles.
Twenty-four bridge projects were completed during this fiscal year, including four
on the Trans-Canada Highway, namely, Mount Hunter Bridge, Savona Overhead Crossing, Squilax Under-pass, and Colquitz River Bridge.
Extensive location and survey work were undertaken, comprising 272.8 miles of
final location, 21.9 miles of preliminary survey, and 116.2 miles of reconnaissance,
exclusive of 30 miles of aerial control and 11.7 miles of aerial mapping completed.
The Architects Branch carried out extensive work, completing seventy building
projects and twelve mechanical installations. Among the more important of these projects were the new Boys' Industrial School, Brannan Lake, Wellington; Poliomyelitis
Pavilion, Vancouver; and 230-bed tuberculosis unit, Essondale.
During the year 22,220 miles of highways and 10,448 miles of trails have been
maintained, and this mileage comprises 3,407 miles of trunk highways, 3,189 miles of
main highways, and 15,625 miles of other roads. In addition to this total, 626.57 miles
were classified as arterial or secondary, details of which are shown in statement attached
to this Report. Some 14,194 miles of highway were kept clear of snow, involving
417,480 snow-plough miles, at an average cost of $134.26 per mile kept open.
Nine new steel ferries and a new steel floating dry-dock were built. Traffic is steadily
increasing at most ferry-sites, and some 2,331,589 vehicles were carried during the year.
The total number of vehicles carried on the following ferries were: Agassiz-Rosedale
(Fraser River), 90,976; Castlegar (Southern Trans-Provincial Highway), 469,990;
Kelowna (Okanagan Highway), 398,242; Nelson, 480,068; Ladner-Woodwards (Fraser
River), 365,204.
The amount of subdivisions in unorganized areas in the Province is still on the
increase, which also adds to the number of permits issued by the Department for private
entrances and connection with public utilities.
The number of letters handled by the Department comprised 98,067.
Existing roads were improved, maintained, and widened by the various district
forces, and also necessary drainage, clearing, and renewal of culverts were successfully
carried out throughout the Province.
When necessary, farmers were allowed to work out tax arrears by contributing to
road work, a practice that has proved very satisfactory in the past and has been of
assistance to the Department where temporary labour is scarce.
It should be noted that although the division of the Department into Highways and
Public Works was made effective March 15th, 1955, it was found necessary, due to the K 6 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
financial appropriations approved for the fiscal year 1954-55, to consolidate the two
Departments into one report.
In conclusion, I may say that a satisfactory year's work has been accomplished and
I wish to record the efficiency, dependability, and loyalty of our staff.
E. S. Jones,
Deputy Minister.
REPORT OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEER
Twenty-four bridge projects were completed during the fiscal year under review;
ferry-landings of semi-permanent construction were also built at Swartz Bay and Fulford
Harbour.
These projects represented a total expenditure of approximately $2,100,000.
Four of the bridges completed during the year were on the Trans-Canada Highway,
namely, Mount Hunter Bridge, Savona Overhead Crossing, Squilax Under-pass, and
Colquitz River Bridge.
Details of the major bridges constructed or reconstructed are listed elsewhere in this
Report.
In addition to the completed projects, work was also commenced or continued on
nine other bridges, namely, Dutch Creek Bridge, Kokanee Bridge, Big Qualicum Bridge,
Thetis Lake Over-pass, Yale Creek Bridge, Deadman Creek Bridge, Tappen Overhead,
Yoho Bridge, and Park Bridge, of which the last six are on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Owing to a severe earth movement during the summer over an area on the east
side of Park Bridge, work on the bridge had to be suspended for the remainder of the
fiscal year and until measures to stabilize the area had been carried out and the results
observed.
The Bridge Branch completed the plans and specifications for the Agassiz-Rosedale
Bridge on behalf of the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges Authority, and
tenders for the general contract and the supply and fabrication of the structural steel for
the approach spans were called in July, 1954. Tenders for the supply, fabrication,
delivery, and erection of the truss spans were called in December, 1954, and for the
steel fence panels in February, 1955.
Construction work at the site, under the supervision of the Department, commenced
in August, 1954, and good progress on the substructure work was made during the low-
water stages of the river through the ensuing fall and winter months.
Tenders were also called in February, 1954, for the construction of the Oak Street
and Middle Arm Bridges. While the plans and specifications for these structures were
prepared by a firm of consulting engineers engaged by the Toll Highways and Bridges
Authority for this work, a significant amount of time had to be devoted by the Bridge
Branch to various technical matters in connection with these two important projects as
well as to items of a more routine nature arising out of the same projects.
I announce the resignation of A. B. Sanderson, Assistant Bridge Engineer, who left
the Department at the end of the year to enter consulting practice; also the resignation
of several other experienced members of the staff who left the Department in favour of
more lucrative positions elsewhere.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to retain the services of designers and draughtsmen experienced in the specialized field of bridge design in the face of outside competition.
District bridge crews carried out the usual maintenance work in a satisfactory manner and, in addition to minor construction work, built the following permanent bridges:
Matsqui Slough Bridge, Reserve Bridge No. 4, Jacob Creek Bridge, Piadjo Bridge, Terrace Bridge Approach, One Mile Bridge, and Squilax Under-pass.

Bridge Engineer. REPORT OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECT

REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER-SURVEYOR
OF BOILERS AND MACHINERY
In accordance with the provisions of the " Boiler and Pressure-vessel Act" I have
the honour to submit the fifty-third annual report of the operation of the Boilers and
Machinery Inspection Department for the fiscal year ended March 31st, 1955.
THE ACT
At the 1955 Session of the Legislature the Act was amended to keep it abreast of
engineering progress and to accommodate the needs of industry. Definitions were completely revised, an interim inspection report was introduced, and provision was made for
the registration of welders. The status of the unfired boiler and the electric boiler with
respect to operating engineers was established. K  12 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
REGULATIONS
The new Regulations Governing the Design, Construction, and Inspection of Boilers,
Pressure-vessels, and Appurtenances, passed by Order in Council last year, are proving
highly satisfactory. Their uniformity with the regulations of similar jurisdictions in the
other Provinces and in the United States has eliminated former difficulties encountered
in the shipment of equipment either out of or into British Coulmbia.
CANADIAN STANDARDS ASSOCIATION
Two Committee meetings were attended, both at Niagara Falls, Ont., in the week of
October 25th to 29th: (1) The Boiler Code Committee (C.S.A. B-51) reviewed and
discussed proposed amendments for the next edition, and (2) the Mechanical Refrigeration Committee (C.S.A. B-52) met to discuss the admission of two new refrigerants into
the Code.
NEW CONSTRUCTION AND REPAIRS
The number of designs checked shows an increase of 4 per cent, indicating that
our industrial expansion continues. Three of our manufacturers are engaged in multiple
production of propane storage-tanks, for which there is great demand. A plan is being
prepared to modify their inspection fees in the case of " batch inspection."
Heavy production in our pulp-mills is causing rapid deterioration in the digesters.
Inspectors make several interim visits now to supervise extensive repairs to these vessels.
ACCIDENTS
The following accidents were recorded, investigated, and causes ascertained, and
recommendations were made to prevent recurrence: One explosion of a hot-water boiler,
five steam-boilers damaged due to low water, one furnace explosion, two flash fires at
oil-heater in refinery where two workmen received superficial burns, and one bursting of
an air-pipe connection where one workman was killed.
SUMMARY OF WORK
New designs and amendments checked  569
Fees collected for designs  $5,484.25
Fees collected for work done in boiler-shops  $7,235.31
New boilers built in British Columbia  92
New boilers built in Western Canada  20
New boilers built in United States  9
Second-hand boilers imported  13
Total number of all boilers inspected  3,832
Plates inspected and tested  1,009
Number of engineers examined   568
Number of welders examined  903
Over-all cost of Department to Government  $99,159.84
Over-all total revenue  $86,914.57

REPORT OF THE CONSTRUCTION ENGINEER
Trans-Canada Highway.—Thirty-one miles were completed during the year, including extremely heavy and difficult work in the Kicking Horse Canyon, which is still
continuing.
Considerable work was carried out in the vicinity of Salmon Arm, of which two
projects were completed. Work was completed on the Jackass Mountain section, which
included a fill of 300,000 cubic yards, the biggest undertaken by the Department to date.
Cariboo Highway.—Twenty-nine and one-half miles were reconstructed, thus giving
a modern highway from Cache Creek to Macalister on the Fraser River.
Okanagan Highway.—Two projects were completed—one just north of West Summerland and one between Larkin and Swan Lake. Reconstruction through West Summerland was nearing completion.
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.—One project, 3.43 miles, was completed in
the vicinity of Aldridge.
Island Highway.—Reconstruction is continuing on the Nanaimo-Wellington section.
Vancouver—Squamish Highway.—Work is continuing in the vicinity of Horseshoe
Bay.   From Horseshoe Bay to Squamish, clearing and drainage only have been done.
Other Highways.—The Maillardville-Coquitlam and Pender Harbour-Agamemnon
Bay Roads have been completed.
Construction Quantities.—During the year these totals were as follows: Roadway
excavation—solid rock, 1,420,027 cubic yards, and other materials, 5,275,538 cubic
yards; culvert pipe, 49,690 lineal feet; concrete for retaining-walls and drainage structures, 8,343 cubic yards; gravel, 917,648 tons. K  14

1 This office was operated for a seven-month period, after which it was closed because the Municipality of Kitimat
organized its own inspection service on a municipal basis. The District Inspector located at this centre was transferred
to Prince George.
The number of inspections completed during this year represents an increase of
5,598, or 16 per cent over the preceding year.
PROSECUTIONS
Three prosecutions were initiated during the year.
EXAMINATION OF MOTION-PICTURE PROJECTIONISTS
The Department assisted the Provincial Fire Marshal in conducting nineteen examinations for projectionists. The regulations covering such examinations provide that the
Inspector of Electrical Energy be a member of this Examining Board in company with
the Fire Marshal. In this connection all fees arising from these examinations accrue to
the credit of the Fire Marshal's Department.
CANADIAN STANDARDS ASSOCIATION
The Chief Inspector continued to represent the Province on the Approvals Council
of the Canadian Standards Association and on continuing committees on the Canadian
Electrical Code.
Two meetings were attended, one of which was held in Victoria during the month
of May and the other in Toronto during the month of October. The expansion of the
electrical industry continues to present problems with respect to new materials which are
being made available to the industry- Various rules contained in the Canadian Electrical
Code were considered for amendment, and it is anticipated that the first proposed list of
amendments will be made available in the near future. This will be the first official
revision since the publication of the sixth edition of the Canadian Electrical Code Part I
in 1953. K 20 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
The Chief Inspector continued to act as Chairman of the Part I Code Committee,
which Committee is Canada-wide in its representation.
The testing facilities of the Canadian Standards Association, together with the
associated facilities of the British Standards Institute and the K.E.M.A. Laboratories in
Arnhem, Holland, continue to give excellent service in approvals of electrical equipment
for the Canadian market. In this connection I am pleased to report that the European
facilities enjoyed by the Canadian Standards Association were used to considerable
advantage in dealing with the application for approval for electrical equipment installed
at the Western Canadian Pipe Mill plant which was constructed at Port Moody.
POLE-LINE PERMITS
The Department during the year checked 543 applications for the erection of pole-
lines on Crown lands or Provincial highways. This represents an increase of sixty-eight
over the previous year. Recommendations on each application were forwarded to the
Chief Engineer.
PUBLIC WORKS
The Department during the year continued to prepare electrical plans and specifications for the Provincial Department of Public Works. In addition, it has acted in a
consulting capacity to other Government departments. The value of work carried out
this year was $614,533.
In addition to the preparation of plans and specifications, supervision was also
exercised over each contract during construction.
ACCIDENTS
There were thirty-eight accidents recorded during the year. Of these, seven were
fatal. This represents an increase of one in the number of fatalities reported for the
previous year.
L. Robson,
Inspector of Electrical Energy.
REPORT OF INSURANCE AND SAFETY BRANCH
The statistics for the fiscal year again reflect the substantial saving made possible by
the self-insuring policy of the Government. Hereunder are shown the statistics reflecting
the activities of the Safety Branch in dealing with claims arising out of motor-vehicle
accidents during the fiscal year.

Ten meetings of the Safety Committee were held during the year, with an average
attendance of seven of the eleven-member committee, for which we express our thanks
to the Committee members.
Safety promotional work was again carried out in the field, with a visit to each
electoral district, where films were exhibited, regulations interpreted, etc.
In addition to efforts directed toward reducing motor-vehicle accidents, considerable
time was devoted to promoting safety on the job.   Use was made of letters, posters, etc.
Quoted below are the figures for Workmen's Compensation Board claims for a
three-year period:— 1952 1953 1954

Insurance and Safety Officer.
REPORT OF THE LOCATION ENGINEER
[,
Highway-location surveys undertaken during the 1954-55 fiscal year are detailed
in the accompanying report, showing 272.8 miles of finalized location, 21.9 miles of
preliminary surveys, 116.2 miles of reconnaissance, exclusive of 30 miles of aerial control and 11.7 miles of aerial mapping completed.
The total cost of surveys was $600,607.02, of which $106,831.74 was expended
on Trans-Canada Highway locations.
Legal surveys of highway rights-of-way were undertaken in conjunction with the
Surveyor-General's department, and also by our Departmental personnel and private
land surveyors.   These surveys are not detailed in this report.
Completion of the Cascade-Castlegar and Salmo-Creston sections of the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway has released two major survey parties for other assignments
in the Province. K 24
PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
The present report represents the highest annual mileage attained to date in
survey programme.    The design of interchanges, clover-leafs, grade separations, ai
channelization of traffic lanes in our location work is becoming increasingly importan..
and demands intensive study, since our locations must anticipate the problems of ever-
increasing traffic.

REPORT OF THE MAINTENANCE ENGINEER K 25
REPORT OF THE MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
The total expenditure for the maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries throughout the Province (including snow-removal) amounted to $13,134,830.63, this being an
increase of $524,000 over the previous year.
Th   total expenditure for snow-removal and sanding amounted to $1,905,709.73,
this >   ag a reduction of $177,150 over the previous winter.   A total of 14,194 miles of
highway was kept open for traffic at a cost of $134.26 per mile.   All main and market
roads were maintained in good condition and provided continuous service with very little
inconvenience to winter traffic.    Radio-telephone communications were established in
Co'-im' ,a District, the Department now being equipped with radio communications on
art Highway, in Golden, Revelstoke, and South Okanagan areas, the Fraser
and Hope-Princeton Highway.   The above-mentioned radio installations are
..stifled in that snow-removal operations are greatly facilitated especially in
-igenc_,   y irequent contact with the crews, and reports on accidents, breakdowns, and
ad conditions are expedited.
The performance of routine maintenance was more difficult than usual during the
ammer season due to extreme rainfall, especially throughout the northern part of the
T wince.   This situation was aggravated to a large extent in certain areas through the
operations of the forest industry.  The hauling of heavy loads of logs and lumber over
rm roads which were not designed for this type of traffic has been disastrous.   It is not
* ^sible to enforce load restrictions over long periods of time as such would seriously
feet the economy of the area, yet at the same time it is most difficult to effect repairs
iei conditions such as this.    Present maintenance allotments will not provide the
standard of maintenance, repairs, or improvements necessary.   Our District Engineers
are under continual pressure from local concerns and pressure groups with respect to local
i/oad conditions.   Consequently a large percentage of the district maintenance allotments
le expended on the local roads to keep them passable for traffic, with the result that our
nain highways are not maintained to the attainable standard. The extremely large mileage
roads administered by this Department, together with increased traffic volumes and
leavier axle loadings, clearly indicate that the road-maintenance vote must be increased
substantially to provide an improved standard of maintenance.
mtenance methods are improving continually.   Certain additional equipment is
1, such as asphalt-distributers, rollers, spreaders, mowers, screening plants, etc., to
■ the work.   However, maximum use of any additional equipment is contingent
ncreased allotment of funds.
ae personnel of the engineering districts are becoming more and more proficient at
•'-construction work, and this year administered and expended $4,886,333.67 on
ay reconstruction and improvements by day-labour projects with most commend-
csults.  These funds produced the following work:— Miles
New construction—Mining and sundry roads     75

-t K 26 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
REPORT OF THE MATERIALS ENGINEER
This year saw many difficulties caused by a heavy snowfall and a very wet season in
some parts of the Province. Settlements and subsidences took place in various parts.
Notably was the Park Bridge slide where close to 1,000,000 tons of earth moved several
feet. Considerable time and study were devoted to such specialized problems, besides the
routine testing and inspection done by the Testing Branch.
The sub-surface exploration work by the electric Ka-Mo drilling-rig was increased,
and one machine could not keep up with the demand for drilling bridge foundations,
highway locations, gravel-pits, etc.
Horizontal drains, which have been so successfully used in the United States to
control backslope slips and drainage problems, were used at Canoe this year. We are
pleased to report that Ka-Mo drill places them quickly and easily up to 60 feet in depth,
and the whole operation has been very successful to date. Aside from the fact that far
better information is obtained from this type of drilling, the cost has been averaging $1.50
per foot, as compared to well-drilling and diamond drilling at $ 10 to $ 15 per foot.
It is generally agreed that the sub-surface exploration work being done has been of
invaluable assistance in designing proper foundations for bridges and roads, and in eliminating subsequent unforeseen difficulties.
The laboratory in the Douglas Building, Victoria, had a busy season, including the
annual traffic-line paint testing programme. Concrete-testing included curing and testing
to failure 775 concrete test cylinders sent in from the field. Concrete aggregate samples
tested totalled 468. Design mixes were computed and trial batches made and tested for
forty-six projects. Cement tests totalled forty-eight, and numerous other advanced tests
were carried out in connection with concrete work.
A total of 349 tests were run on gravel for base course, surfacing, etc., in the Victoria laboratory.
Soil-testing totalled 577 tests, some of which take considerable time and care.
The policy of on-the-job testing was also carried out on many projects. This is
necessary to correct any difficulties, etc., immediately, before such can develop to serious
proportions.
One field compaction-testing laboratory, two gravel-testing laboratories, one
concrete-testing laboratory, and a soil-survey laboratory operated very successfully on
various projects during the summer.
In spite of the above increased activities, the minor slips, settlements, base failures,
frost-heaves, etc., in evidence show that we must do all we can to cover more work. The
Testing Branch can do a lot toward preventing difficulties and assisting in building satisfactory roads. The proper time for us to do our work is during the design and construction phases.
R. C. Thurber,
Materials Engineer.
REPORT OF THE RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
Right-of-way negotiations for the fiscal year 1954-55 resulted in a total of 708
settlements being undertaken by members of the branch. Six claims were referred to
arbitration proceedings for settlement. Cost of rights-of-way, yard-sites, and other properties acquired by the Department amounted to $1,112,026.42. The foregoing includes
properties acquired on behalf of the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges
Authority.   This work was carried out by the four-member staff.
Applications for permission to construct works within Crown lands totalled 1,412.

Surveys assigned subsequent to completion of construction work resulted in approximately 56 miles of right-of-way being permanently established.
Sales of land surplus to highway requirements and of dwellings to be cleared from
rights-of-way totalled twenty-six, with a recovery of funds in the amount of $16,090 to
the Department.
L. J. Moore,
Right-of-way Agent.
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
During this period there were fifty-two ferries operated under the jurisdiction of this
Department. These comprised eleven Government-owned major ferries, nine Government-owned power-cable barge-type ferries, sixteen Government-owned reaction ferries,
nine Government-owned miscellaneous ferries, and seven privately owned subsidized
ferries.
All Government-owned ferries were inspected, and recommended repairs and
renewals were carried out. The entire ferry system operated very efficiently, and a minimum of time was lost due to overhauls and breakdowns.
This was an extremely busy year for the Ferry Branch. Nine new steel ferries and
a new steel floating dry-dock were built. A new steel ferry for the Lillooet District is
under construction. Included in the new ferries built was a steel barge-type ferry for
Arrow Park. This ferry differs from all previous designs, insomuch as the sides of the
barge are sloped under to reduce the side pressure of the river current, thus eliminating
the excessive cable wear experienced in the past. The new floating dry-dock has proven
to be a real asset to the Kootenay Lake ferries. The M.V. "Anscomb " was taken out
on to the dock on May 16th and raised out of the water in one hour. This operation
previously took five days on the old marine ways.
Traffic is steadily increasing at most sites, and during the 1954-55 fiscal year
2,331,589 vehicles were carried. This represents an increase of 269,117 vehicles over
the preceding year. One record worthy of note is the 22,779 vehicles carried by the
North Bend Aerial Ferry which has a capacity of one vehicle.
There are still several ferries that have difficulty in handling the volume of traffic
during the tourist season, but these are gradually being augmented by extra ferries or
bridges. One of the most serious bottlenecks has been completely eliminated by the
building of the new Kootenay Lake ferry M.V. " Balfour."
Major renewals and repairs to Government-owned ferries were as follows during
the 1954—55 fiscal year:—
Cariboo District.—A new 10-ton steel reaction ferry was built for Soda Creek.
Chilliwack District.—After four years of service the Agassiz Ferry was taken out
of the water at New Westminster and completely overhauled.
Comox District.—A new 64-foot steel ferry was built for service at Denman Island.
This ferry has a capacity of eight vehicles and thirty-three passengers. It is the first ferry
in the Province to use outboard power for propulsion.
Delta District.—The Ladner Ferry was taken out of the water at Vancouver and
completely overhauled. A new 60-foot steel barge was built for service at Barnston
Island and the tug was completely overhauled.
Kamloops District.—A new 10-ton steel reaction ferry was built for McLure.
Kaslo-Slocan District.—A new 72-foot steel ferry was built for Arrow Park.
Lillooet District.—A new 10-ton steel reaction ferry was built for Big Bar. A similar new ferry is under construction for High Bar. K 28

Nelson-Creston District.—A new 70-foot steel ferry was built for service at Nicks
Island. A new 180-foot steel ferry was built for service at Kootenay Lake. This vessel
(M.V. " Balfour ") uses two " Harbormaster " units for propulsion and has a capacity
of thirty-eight vehicles and 150 passengers. A new 56-foot steel ferry was built for
service at Glade.
A new steel floating dry-dock was built for service at Kootenay Lake.
After four years' service the M.V. "Anscomb " was taken out of the water on the
new dry-dock and completely overhauled.
Omineca District.—After four years' service the Francois Lake Ferry was taken out
of the water and completely overhauled.   This was done on the new marine ways.
Revelstoke District.—A charter and subsidy were granted to the Interior Tug and
Transportation Company to operate a vehicle-ferry service between Arrowhead and Robson and way-points on the Arrow Lakes.
South Okanagan District.—After four years' service the M.V. " Lequime " was
taken out of the water at Kelowna and completely overhauled.
Yale District.—New overhead cables were installed at the North Bend Aerial Ferry.

REPORT OF THE TRAFFIC ENGINEER
TRAFFIC-LINE PAINTING
Using two modern high-capacity striping units with two five-man crews, a total of
1,172 miles of highway was newly painted or repainted. This required the purchase of
14,000 gallons of paint and 37 tons of glass bead. The total cost of striping per mile
of highway was $65. This is comparable to last year's cost, since the item of spotting
previous to painting new line was included in the total cost this year for the first time.
It is believed that the price of paint has reached a minimum with maximum quality in
view of the cost of the raw materials to the paint-manufacturer. The maintaining of
these low material costs indicates the value of the assistance given by the Materials Engineer in the testing of paint and bead stocks. While the cost per mile has been maintained
this year, the quality and durability of the traffic lines put down has, if anything, improved.
These three items of cost, quality, and durability continue to compare favourably with
the work done by other Provincial and State highway organizations.
To increase the efficiency of the high-capacity striping units in covering the increasing mileage of highway pavement, an extra three-man crew will be added in the 1955
season to spot guide lines and paint the more isolated sections of highway.
3 K 34 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
HIGHWAY SIGNS
The sign-shop staff, consisting of a foreman and four to eight men, was engaged
throughout the year in the manufacture of the Province's standard highway signs. Three
Traffic Branch sign-maintenance trucks were in the field for five months erecting and
maintaining signs. This field work was in addition to the sign-maintenance work regularly done by the district maintenance crews.
The colour of the British Columbia standard Stop sign was changed from yellow
to red, and manufacture of these red signs commenced during the year. Changing over
of " stop " signs already in place began as replacements became necessary.
A great deal of drafting and writing was done by the office staff in the preparation
of a new sign manual, which will be ready for issue in the early summer of 1955.
The work of administering directional signs for auto courts and resorts was continued.    One hundred and three permits to erect directional signs were issued.
TRAFFIC-CONTROL SIGNALS
A number of accident studies and traffic-volume counts were made at highway
intersections in investigating the need for traffic-control signals or beacons. The Department installed, or assisted to install, the signalization at ten intersections throughout the
Province. Two of these were of the traffic-actuated type, which, though more costly than
the fixed-time type, are proving capable of handling more efficiently the traffic at rural
and suburban intersections.   Some of the signals included highway lighting installations.
In addition to the Stop and Go signals, six flashing-type signals were installed.
TRUCK WEIGH-SCALES
In the enforcement of truck-weight regulations, the Department now has a total of
eleven permanent 60-foot and 45-foot platform scales throughout the Province. To
increase the effectiveness of weight enforcement, the Department has made available to
the Royal Canadian Mounted Police six pairs of portable scales for use in areas not
covered by the permanent scales.
TRAFFIC SURVEY
During the summer months a survey was made of traffic volumes on all main roads
throughout the Province. Two traffic-enumerators, each equipped with a 1-ton panel
and sixteen automatic traffic-counters, carried out the programme at 43 long-count and
355 short-count stations. In addition, four seasonal counts were made during the year
at a total of eighteen locations in the Fraser Valley as far east as Hope and on Vancouver
Island.
From the data obtained from these counts, and also ferry-traffic records, a printed
report was made up. This comprehensive list of traffic movements and their comparative
volumes are of great value in allotting maintenance funds and planning highway
improvements.
INTERSECTION DESIGN AND CHANNELIZATION
The design and installation of channelization, and in some cases signals or flashers,
was completed on twelve major intersections throughout the Province. Three of these
installations were on Vancouver Island and the other nine were scattered throughout the
Mainland.
To further eliminate the hazard at intersections and make channelization effective
at night, modern mercury vapour street-lighting was installed at three intersections. This
work has been done in conjunction with the Electrical Energy Branch. DISTRICT REPORTS K 35
Intersection study and design has become a major aspect of the work of the Traffic
Branch.
BURRARD PENINSULA ORIGIN-DESTINATION SURVEY
In co-operation with the Vancouver City Engineer and the Director of the Lower
Mainland Regional Planning Board, the report of the investigation carried out in 1953
was completed. This was an examination of originals and destinations and volumes of
vehicle movements over Ladner Ferry, Pattullo Bridge, and Pitt River Bridge, which
are the only accesses to the Burrard Peninsula from the south and east.
Further plans were also laid for the examination of vehicle volumes and movements
within the peninsula.
This work is being done to make information available for use in the large-scale
planning of Fraser River crossings and major routes through metropolitan Vancouver.

DISTRICT REPORTS
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No.  1   (VANCOUVER ISLAND
AND THE ISLANDS)
Alberni District
Roads.—Lakeshore Road, Faber Road, the approaches and deck of the new Sproat
Falls Bridge, and Beaver Creek Road were surfaced with road-mixed pavement over
a total of 4.3 miles. Burde Road was reconstructed for approximately 1 mile, and work
was started reconstructing Coleman Road over a distance of 2 miles. The arterial highway in Port Alberni (Third Street) was widened by the addition of a strip of plant-mix
pavement 10 feet in width and 0.5 mile long between Redford Avenue and Dunbar
Avenue. This was laid by the City of Port Alberni, the cost of the work being met by
this Department. A guard-rail approximately 800 feet in length was erected at the Roger
Creek fill. A large timber culvert on the Beaver Creek Road was replaced by a steel
pipe inserted inside the timber structure. Certain low areas liable to flooding were raised
on the Lakeshore Road.
A new gravel-pit was developed in the McCoy Lake area. Extensive gravelling was
carried out in the fall and winter in the Alberni area.
The new garage and yard located on the highway to Port Alberni outside the city
limits was completed, a water-supply installed, and an office and tool stores building constructed.   The old yard on Johnston Road, Alberni, was vacated.
Bridges.—A new bridge on the Great Central Lake Road over the Sproat River at
Sproat Falls was completed. This bridge also incorporated an over-pass over the private
logging-road of MacMillan & Bloedel Limited (Alberni Division), and the company contributed toward the cost of this. This bridge was of creosoted-timber frame constructed
on concrete piers with a 40-foot steel-beam span on the over-pass, a main span of 160
feet, deck-type Howe truss, and sixteen bays of framed trestles—total length, 490 feet
approximately; maximum height above ground, 60 feet; with a paved roadway 22 feet
wide. The Somers Bridge (No. 88) on the Somers Road was rebuilt in a new location.
Bishops Bridge (No. 81) on the Beaver Creek Road and Wards Bridge (No. 104) on
the Lakeshore Road were replaced by culvert and fill. Repairs were carried out on
Brennan Bridge (No. 105) on the Lakeshore Road and Moore Bridge (No. 116) on
the Moore Road and Proctor Bridge (No. 115) on the Cowley Road. A non-skid
asphalt surface treatment was applied to the Kitsucksis Bridge in Alberni City. K 36

Comox District
Islands and Northerly Isolated Areas.—The local part-time and monthly maintenance crews have kept the roads in satisfactory condition.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on the rest of the roads in the
district. Screened gravel was stock-piled at Cumberland, Errington, and Hammond Bay
pits. Several major and minor drainage problems were completed. High water caused
flooding on No. 32r, requiring bank stabilization with large aggregate.
Construction.—The reconstruction of the Island Highway from Oyster River Bridge
to Campbell River, 11.75 miles, was completed and surfaced.
Reconstruction of Coombs Road was completed in preparation for surfacing; 19.82
miles reconstructed on main and branch roads; 6.85 miles of general improvements on
other road; and 4.83 miles of some of the above roads were surfaced with an M.C. 2
road mix.
The Sayward Road was improved in many spots and gravelled in many of the worst
sections.    Over-all condition was good.
Bridges.—Eleven bridges were replaced by culvert and fill. The Rees Bridge collapsed and a temporary pile trestle was installed. Wilkinson and Beaver Bridges were
renewed.   Extensive maintenance was carried out on numerous other bridges.
Snow-removal.—Snow-ploughing was light, but extensive sanding was carried out.
All roads were kept open and in good shape throughout the winter.
Ferries.—The Denman, Quathiaski Cove, and Hornby Island Ferries operated satisfactorily throughout the year.
Cowichan-Newcastle District
Roads.—Major reconstruction by contract was commenced on the Trans-Canada
Highway at Ladysmith over a distance of 2.41 miles (Mile 52.31 to Mile 54.66) and at
Cassidy over a distance of 4.85 miles (Mile 57.40 to Mile 62.25). This will complete
the highway to standard specifications within the district with the exception of Mile 56.3
to Mile 57.4 and Mile 30.42 to Mile 35.18.
In the Duncan area the Indian, Glenora, and Miller Roads were paved by road-
mixed pavement over a distance of 5.4 miles. Breaks in the pavement on the Cowichan
Lake Road, the Somenos Road, and the Tzuhalem Road were paved, totalling 0.8 mile.
These were mostly caused by replacement of bridges with culvert and fill. At Ladysmith
the Christie Road, Fourth Avenue extension, and Stephenson Street received asphalt
surface treatment totalling 0.8 mile. The Yellow Point Road reconstruction was completed, gravelled, and paved over a distance of 4.2 miles. The Paldi Road was paved
over a distance of 0.4 mile, the cost of which was contributed to by the Mayo Lumber
Company. The South Shore Road was extended past Sutton Creek for 0.9 mile to
connect to a private road to Camp 8. The Department contributed to the reconstruction
and maintenance of the Quamichan Lake Road, a secondary highway within North
Cowichan Municipality. The Cowichan Bay Road was widened from Cowichan Bay
southwards to the district boundary and the shoulders gravelled. Right-of-way survey
by a British Columbia land surveyor was carried out on this road from the main highway
to the tennis-court corner, and negotiations opened with the Indian Department for
acquisition of enlarged right-of-way for this section. A large number of old log culverts
were replaced by metal-pipe culverts on the Nanaimo River Road in connection with the
Greater Nanaimo Water Board new water-main, and the latter authority bore the cost
of installation of these and the replacement of the paved surface. A steel guard-rail was
installed on the north approach to the Westholme Over-pass on the Trans-Canada
Highway, and extensive brush-killing and slashing was carried out on the right-of-way
of the above highway between Duncan and Ladysmith. A large culvert was replaced
on the MacMillan Road and another on Twelfth Street, and a drainage-ditch was dug
along Allenby and Polkey Roads. K 38 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
Bridges.—Work commenced on the replacement of the Safe Bridge (No. 164) over
Cook Creek on the North Shore Road at Youbou, which was 75 per cent completed at
the year's end. This will be a prefabricated reinforced-concrete stringer structure on
concrete abutments with a reinforced-concrete sub-deck with asphalt paved road surface
and sidewalk. The Somenos Bridge (No. 119) on the Somenos Road was replaced by
a new timber structure. Materials were purchased for redecking and installing of new
ties and stringers for the Nanaimo River Bridge on the Cedar Road. Abernethy Bridge
(No. 1) and Meade Creek Bridge (No. 65) on the old road at Meade Creek were
replaced by new timber structures. Bridges No. 79 (Mountain), No. 47 (Solly), No. 169
(Tyee), and No. 170 (Shaw) were replaced by culverts and fill. Major repairs were
carried out on the Davis Lagoon Bridge (No. 23) on the Chemainus Road and to the
Thatcher Bridge (No. 125) on the Thatcher Road.
Esquimalt District
Maintenance.—During the year special attention was given to shouldering, chemical
spraying, and painting guard-rails along the Island Highway, and to gravelling and
improving those side-roads planned for surfacing in 1955.
Construction.—District crews replaced three high trestles on the West Coast Highway with culverts and fills in preparation for future paving. The crews also reconstructed
3.1 miles on Rocky Point Road and 1.1 miles on Metchosin Road, both of which involved
extensive rock cuts.
The Surfacing Branch laid 1.4 miles of paving on the Island Highway at Mill Bay
and 2 miles on Fisher Road at Cobble Hill.
The Construction Branch continued working on 6.2 miles of the Trans-Canada
Highway at the southern end of the district.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was average and caused difficulties only on the Malahat
portion of the Island Highway. Icing conditions persisted for several weeks, but sanding
was carried out without difficulty.
Bridges.—The district bridge crew constructed a permanent bridge over Bilston
Creek using precast concrete stringer and deck sections. The crew also constructed
a four-bay equipment-shed at the Langford yard.
Nanaimo-Islands District
Roads.—The reconstruction of the Island Highway north from Nanaimo to the
north district boundary commenced over a distance of 3.29 miles (Project No. 538).
This is on a new route and commences at the new George S. Pearson Bridge. By the
year's end the grading was 70 per cent complete.
One mile of the Fulford-Ganges Road on Saltspring Island was reconstructed to
28-foot width, and a total of 3.4 miles of this road was surfaced with road-mixed pavement; unfortunately extremely wet weather throughout the period of paving made it
impossible to get the best results in this pavement. A total of 2.8 miles of the Jingle Pot
Road was gravelled and 2 miles widened, and 1.5 miles of the Maxey Road was widened
and gravelled.
Sunset Drive on Saltspring Island was gravelled over 2 miles, and widening and
gravelling were done on the North End Road. Asphalt surface treatment was applied
to 4 miles of streets in Harewood, Nanaimo, and a chemical dust-layer was applied on
the Vesuvius Road on Saltspring Island.
A new road to link existing roads on North Pender and South Pender Islands to the
new bridge joining the islands was built, 4.9 miles in length, over rough country. By the
year's end the grading was complete and gravelling remained to be done. A large culvert
on the Cat Stream in Five Acres was installed, and a drainage problem corrected at
Departure Bay where the Randal Road was raised and protected from surf action by
rock riprap. DISTRICT REPORTS
K 39
Bridges.—A new bridge was completed over the Millstone River in Nanaimo on the
new route of the arterial Island Highway proceeding northwards. This bridge was named
the George S. Pearson Bridge and was of continuous reinforced-concrete beam designed
with reinforced-concrete deck, a main span of 70 feet with two 58-foot approach spans.
The width of roadway is 27 feet, with two 6-foot sidewalks, and the bridge affords 20 feet
vertical clearance above high tide.   The bridge is approximately 247 feet in length.
A bridge was built to link North and South Pender Islands. The bridge was of
creosoted-pile trestle construction with a main span of 46 feet of log stringers. There
were nine bays of trestle, and the total length of the bridge was 223 feet approximately.
The bridge affords 25 feet clearance above high tide and has a 12-foot roadway.
Ferries.—The Fulford-Swartz Bay Ferry and the Gabriola Ferry, both operated on
Government subsidy, maintained regular service throughout the year. The Gabriola
Ferry M.V. 'Atrevida " was replaced by a larger vessel, M.V. " Eena," and extra piling
was installed at the Gabriola landing to accommodate the larger ferry. The Department
also installed a new float at the Gabriola Ferry landing. A new service to North Pender
Island from Swartz Bay was inaugurated on Government subsidy.
Oak Bay District
The Department and the municipality shared the cost of maintaining Beach Drive
and also the construction of a sea-wall, sidewalk, and pavement at Shoal Bay.
Saanich District
General.—The district took over an additional 1.25 miles of the Trans-Canada
Highway for maintenance purposes. The crews surfaced 2.6 miles on the West Saanich
Road, 1 mile on Wain Road, and, in addition, seal-coated 3.5 miles on the East Saanich
Road which had been turned back to the Central Saanich Municipality in 1953. The
district crews also constructed Inverness Street, reconstructed 1 mile of West Saanich
Road at Patricia Bay, and cleared the location for Land's End Road.
The Department shared in the cost of opening up Seventh Street in Sidney Village
and the installation of sidewalks on Douglas Street in Saanich Municipality.
Ferries-landings.—The British Columbia Electric Company constructed a three-
phase power-line to the Mill Bay wharf, thus eliminating a gasoline-motor generator
which had been a source of trouble.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 2 (BURNABY, CHILLIWACK, DELTA, DEWDNEY, MACKENZIE, NEW WESTMINSTER, NORTH VANCOUVER, AND
VANCOUVER-POINT GREY ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
Burnaby District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance, consisting of ditching, brushing, patching,
shouldering, and cleaning catch-basins was carried out. The ditch was moved back on
a portion of the Lougheed Highway (No. 17r) in order to give a wider shoulder.
Construction.—The Westridge diversion of the Hastings-Barnet Highway, 0.79
mile, was completed and opened to traffic. The work for the fiscal year 1954-55
involved completing the subgrade and the gravelling of 0.43 mile.
Turning-lanes were constructed at the intersection of the Lougheed Highway and
North Road.
Buildings.—A three-bay equipment-shed was erected at the new yard at Grandview
and Willingdon. The building was 95 per cent completed, but the plumbing, heating,
and wiring were yet to be installed.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall for the year was not too heavy, and thus the Departmental
equipment was able to take care of all snow-ploughing. Icing conditions were prevalent,
and it was necessary to carry out extensive sanding operations. K 40 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
Chilliwack District
New Construction.—The Luckakuck diversion (No. 8r), 0.35 mile, was completed.
Reconstruction.—On the Trans-Canada Highway (No. 4r), the third lane at
Abbotsford Village, west of Essendene intersection, 0.34 mile, was completed.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Luckakuck diversion (No. 8r), 0.35 mile; Trans-Canada
Highway (No. 5-13), Cheam and Twin Bridges, 1.27 miles; Trans-Canada Highway
(No. 6r), surfacing applied to 5.25 miles of prepared base east of Sumas River; Trans-
Canada Highway (No. 8r), bituminous widening strip was applied on both sides of the
concrete roadway for a distance of 6 miles; Abbotsford—Mission Highway (No. 12r),
new Matsqui Slough Bridge and approaches were surfaced, 0.02 mile.
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance work was carried out on all main roads, and
their condition was generally satisfactory at the end of the fiscal year. The section of
Trans-Canada Highway (No. 8r) between Chilliwack and Rosedale, approximately
8 miles in length, and a considerable portion of Trans-Canada Highway No. 5-13 showed
serious signs of possible pavement failure following the spring break-up.
Snow-removal.—A reasonably mild winter was experienced, and all roads were kept
clear with very little delay. Safe travelling conditions were ensured, in so far as possible,
through the prompt application of sand. As in previous years, the greatest difficulties
were encountered on the Sumas Prairie section of Trans-Canada Highway, where high
winds are prevalent.
Bridges.—Usual maintenance was carried out and inspections made of all bridges
in the district.
Matsqui Slough Bridge (No. 5-26) was replaced by a precast concrete deck structure
mounted on creosoted piles.
Luckakuck Bridge (No. 5-64) was eliminated through construction of a road
diversion. Drainage is now afforded by means of a multi-plate pipe arch with a span of
12 feet 10 inches and a rise of 8 feet 4 inches.
Ferries.—Serious changes in the river-bottom necessitated a considerable amount of
dredging to maintain ferry service. Aside from a major shut-down, November lst to
November 30th, for inspection and repairs, the Agassiz Ferry was only shut down on
three occasions, each of short duration. It was necessary to obtain the assistance of a tug
for several days in August when cylinder trouble developed.
Miscellaneous.—The Rosedale equipment-shed, started last year, has been completed.
The Abbotsford equipment-shed, started last year, is completed, except for the
installation of electric wiring and plumbing fixtures. A well was drilled to afford a
water-supply.
Traffic islands were installed at the intersection of Trans-Canada Highway and
Essendene Avenue in Abbotsford, traffic lights to be installed early in the next fiscal year.
A drainage problem at Mile 75 of the Trans-Canada Highway was eliminated by
dredging approximately 1,200 feet of offtake ditch and enlarging adjacent sections of
ditch.
Three miles of ditch was dug on land acquired for the purpose on the north-west
side of the Sumas Prairie section of the Trans-Canada Highway.
Delta District
New Construction.—The Endersby Hill project, 0.76 mile in length, connecting the
Beaubien and Ladner Trunk Roads, was completed. The section of the Beaubien Road
between Scott Road and Bergstrom Road, a distance of 2 miles, was completed.
Reconstruction.—The section of Scott Road between a point half a mile south of
Newton Road and a point 700 feet south of the Kennedy railway crossing, 2.70 miles in
length, was completely reconstructed. DISTRICT REPORTS
K 41
Bituminous Surfacing.—The reconstructed portion of Scott Road, as well as Endersby Hill and 0.6 mile of the Beaubien Road, was paved during this period. Application
of crushed gravel on the shoulders following paving was approximately 50 per cent
completed.
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all main roads. The
bituminous-patching crew was exceedingly busy, since many roads in the district show
extensive failure. During the winter months the shoulders on the Trans-Canada Highway
between Aldergrove and Abbotsford were widened where sufficient room existed.
Snow-removal.—A mild winter was experienced and no particular snow-removal
problems arose.
Bridges.—All bridges in the district were inspected and ordinary maintenance
carried out.
The wooden deck of Fraser Avenue Bridge (No. 10-6) was replaced, and a non-skid
seal-coat was applied to Bridges Nos. 10-6 and 10-8.
Traffic gates were installed on Eburne Bridge (No. 10-5).
Ferries.—On the Ladner Ferry at the height of the spring freshet, it became apparent
that some of the piling on the Ladner landing was being seriously undermined. It was
necessary to drive new and longer piles in many of the bents. Minor repairs to the
dolphins on the Woodward side were also required. Twenty-four-hour service was
instituted early in the year, and an additional crew hired to meet this demand. Major
interruptions in service were few, although inspection and repairs to pontoons made it
necessary to suspend operation from November 15th to November 26th. Extensive
dry-rot was detected in the wheel-house, and repairs were made while the ferry continued
operation during the period July 15th to August 24th.
On the Barnston Island Ferry an attempt was made to institute a regular schedule
for the ferry, effective July 2nd, affording half-hourly service, but after one month public
opposition made it necessary to abandon the schedule and provide increased continuous
service between the hours of 7 a.m. and 12 midnight, one hour more than previously.
The old wooden barge, which was showing signs of deterioration, was replaced by a new
steel barge late in December. The tug underwent a major overhaul, in the course of
which rotted sections of the woodwork were replaced and the motor repaired. Service
was maintained through the use of a rented tug.
Miscellaneous.—Traffic islands, together with traffic lights and street-lighting, were
installed at Whalley.
Two hundred and twenty feet of 24-inch-diameter wooden flume was installed on
Scott Hill, eliminating local flooding.
Dewdney District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance work was carried out on all highways and local
roads. Shouldering was carried out on the Lougheed Highway east of Haney. All gravel
roads were kept well graded.
Calcium chloride dust-layer was applied to the gravel portions of the Lougheed
Highway in the Municipality of Kent.
Many of the roads on Nicomen Island and Hatzic Prairie were gravelled.
Brush and weed killer was applied to the Lougheed Highway right-of-way.
Trees which were planted along the Lougheed Highway right-of-way in the vicinity
of Pitt Meadows, Haney, and Silverdale were all pruned.
A wooden box culvert under St. John's Street in Port Moody was renewed with
a 48-inch-diameter culvert pipe.
Reconstruction.—Reconstruction was carried out on 1.3 miles of the Lougheed
Highway, about 6 miles east of Deroche, 1 mile of which was 100 per cent completed and
0.3 mile 50 per cent completed. K 42

Reconstruction was carried out on 1.2 miles of the Agassiz-Haig Highway, about
8 miles east of Agassiz, 0.9 mile of which was 90 per cent completed and 0.3 mile 25 per
cent completed.    The work involved extensive solid-rock excavations.
Culvert renewals and shouldering were carried out on the Dewdney Trunk Road
from Port Moody to Port Coquitlam.
Construction.—The construction of the relocation of the Lougheed Highway from
Maillardville to Essondale was completed.   This work was done by contract.
One-quarter mile of the Ioco-Bedwell Bay Road was constructed. This now completes the road to the west boundary of the Woodhaven Subdivision. All stumps and
slash on the right-of-way from Tatlow Road to the west boundary of the subdivision
were piled, ready for burning.
A concrete retaining-wall was erected on Main Street in the Village of Mission, the
work being 75 per cent complete at the end of the fiscal year.
Bridges.—All bridges in the area were maintained, and major repairs were made
on the Harrison River Bridge and the Hatzic Pumps Bridge. An asphalt plank deck
was laid on the latter bridge.
Reserve Bridge No. 4, on the project east of Deroche, was renewed with a precast
concrete-stringer bridge.
A new bridge with a King truss and trestle approaches was constructed over the
South Alouette River in the Municipality of Pitt Meadows, and material was delivered
for a proposed bridge over the North Alouette River.
The following bridges were replaced by culvert and fill: Schoolhouse, O'Mara, Ken-
worthy, Heponstall, and Washout.
It was necessary to reconstruct 0.18 mile of the Lougheed Highway in order to
replace Washout Bridge on the new alignment, this work being 50 per cent complete at
the end of the fiscal year.
Contractors commenced construction of the Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge.
Paving.—The following paving work was carried out in the district under supervision of the Surfacing Branch: Lougheed Highway, Maillardville to Coquitlam, plant
mix, 1.9 miles; Lougheed Highway east of Deroche, plant mix, 1.9 miles; Lougheed
Highway, Agassiz Mountain, plant mix, 0.6 mile; Lougheed Highway, Hatzic to Deroche,
seal-coat, 10.3 miles; Dewdney Trunk Road, Port Moody to Port Coquitlam, levelling
course and recap, 2.0 miles; Pitt River and Brunette Bridges, seal-coat, 0.2 mile.
The following paving work was carried out by our own forces or under the supervision of our own forces: Lougheed Highway east of Agassiz, blade mix, 0.5 mile;
Hawkins-Pickle Road, double flush-coat, 1.1 miles; Farms Road, special primer, 2.9
miles.
Buildings.—The construction of a four-bay equipment-shed and gasoline-station at
Mission was completed, except for the plumbing and heating.
Painting and general repairs were carried out on the yard buildings at Port Coquitlam
and Deroche.
Ferry-landings.—The Agassiz ferry-landing was maintained satisfactorily and in
service throughout the year. Some rock protection work was done in the vicinity of the
landing.
Snow-removal.—No difficulty was experienced in handling the snowfall for the year.
Sanding and snow-ploughing were carried out as required.
Dewdney East District
Maintenance.—A total of 9.85 miles of road on the south side of the Fraser River
was maintained.
Mackenzie District
Maintenance.—All roads were regularly maintained and most roads were kept in
good condition.   A number of culverts were installed both in the Powell River and Sechelt K 44 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
sections. Several bridges were replaced with culverts and fill. Calcium chloride was used
extensively to keep down the dust on several of the main roads.
Construction.—Reconstruction was carried out on the Sechelt-Pender Harbour Highway from Mile 18.5 to Mile 27.5.
New highway constructed on the Gibsons-Powell River Road was as follows: Klein
Junction to Earl's Cove, 10.4 miles; Saltry Bay to Thunder Bay, 6.4 miles; and Francis
Peninsula Road, 2.9 miles. Forty miles of new road was opened up from the terminus
of the Bella Coola Road to Anahim Lake; this road, when completed, will be a connecting-
link between the Pacific Ocean at Bella Coola and Williams Lake.
Bridges.—Three new bridges were constructed, two of which became necessary after
very heavy rains had washed out culverts. The third, 157 feet in length, connects the
Mainland with Francis Peninsula.    Eight bridges were replaced with culverts and fill.
Paving.—No paving was done in the district, but half a mile was surface-treated
between Gibsons and Port Mellon.
Snow-removal.—Except for the month of March, the winter was mild and very little
snow-ploughing or sanding was required.
New Westminster District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on 6.1 miles of streets in
District Lot 172.
Paving.—A plant-mix recap was laid down on Marine Drive for its full length of
0.5 mile.
Snow-removal.—Conditions were normal for the year, and sanding and snow-ploughing were carried out as required.
North Vancouver District
Maintenance.—Regular maintenance work was carried out, cleaning ditches and
culverts, and also patching the pavement and cutting brush. A number of culverts were
replaced along Third Street.    Snow-ploughing and sanding were very light.
Vancouver-Point Grey District
Maintenance.—Maintenance work was carried out during the year, cleaning ditches,
brushing, and patching.    Snow-ploughing and sanding were very light.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 3  (KAMLOOPS, REVELSTOKE, SALMON
ARM, AND YALE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
Kamloops District
General Maintenance.—The Trans-Canada Highway east from Kamloops to Monte
Creek has been well maintained. Weed-spraying and shoulder maintenance have kept
this road tidy. Very little patching has been needed, and no difficulties have been
encountered, with the exception of some minor mud-slides due to irrigation leakage
where the highway is in cut.
On the Trans-Canada Highway west from Kamloops continual patching has been
needed on the Kamloops-Cornwall section and the Deadman section. The new construction by-passing Savona has caused some trouble due to rock scaling off and filling the
ditches. These slides were removed in all cases. Some settlement and cracking of the
pavement has been observed in the new construction along Kamloops Lake. During the
summer months continual road-shouldering, weed-spraying, and early spring-weed burning have kept the right-of-way in this section clean and tidy.
All cattle under-passes in both sections have now been refenced and painted. The
improvement in appearance is very noticeable. DISTRICT REPORTS K 45
The North Thompson Highway has again received increased maintenance and is
now an all-weather road as far as Vavenby. Drainage, grading, and gravelling have been
continued throughout the period.
Most of the side-roads off the North Thompson Highway are improving; however,
considerable gravelling and drainage are still required.
Continual grading and drainage maintenance have kept the Kamloops-Merritt Road
in good shape.
Improvements have been made to the Paul Lake Road, Westsyde Road, Lac le
Jeune Road, Bestwick area, and the Copper Creek area by our Kamloops crew.
Some road improvements in the Copper Creek-Red Lake area were carried out.
These improvements were badly needed, and although the entire area was not covered,
the mainly travelled portion was built up and graded. The improved section is now an
all-weather road.
The Savona crew have divided their time between the Trans-Canada Highway,
Deadman-Vidette Road, and the Mamit Lake Road, with some minor maintenance in
the Walhachin area. The Deadman-Vidette Road is now passable in wet weather;
however, the Mamit Lake area still needs considerable gravelling.
Road-mix asphalt was placed through Barriere Townsite on the North Thompson
Highway, Westsyde Road, and Valleyview. In all cases the asphalt has been satisfactory
and has been the source of favourable comments from the public.
Snow-removal and winter sanding were again heavy during the past winter. The
addition of two Oliver loaders greatly assisted sanding and very little hired equipment
was needed.
General Construction and Reconstruction.—On the North Thompson Highway (No.
71) 6.5 miles of road was reconstructed in the Clearwater area. Funds were not sufficient
to complete this work, and finishing has not been completed on 2 miles of this. All the
new construction was opened to traffic with the exception of 1 mile, which was closed
pending construction of a new bridge at Brookfield Creek. Screened gravel was placed
on 5 miles of the 1953 new construction and 3 miles of the 1954 construction (Mile 71.1
to Mile 79.0).
On Clearwater Valley Road (No. 32) 6 miles were reconstructed. No major changes
in alignment were possible, but a serviceable road has been produced.
On the Kamloops-Merritt Road (No. 67) another 1.8 miles of new road was constructed. This project involved a large quantity of rock, and progress was slow and costly.
This new construction was opened to traffic but finishing was not completed. Lack of
funds prevented cleaning the ditches and final gravelling.
Minor reconstruction programmes were completed on side-roads.
Classified routes through the Village of North Kamloops, the City of Kamloops,
and Ashcroft were maintained on a share basis with the community concerned.
Bridges.—Cayuse Creek Bridge was reconstructed on the North Thompson Highway.
This bridge was in very dangerous condition and has been a source of continual complaint
by travellers between Vavenby and Blue River.
Criss Creek Bridge No. 1 on the Deadman-Vidette Road and Jones Creek Bridge
on the Lost Creek Road were both replaced, and material was purchased for replacement
of two other bridges.
All bridges in the area were maintained as needed.
Approximately 10,000 yards of rock was hauled on to the bank of the Thompson
River to protect Kamloops East Bridge (No. 121). This has proven very satisfactory,
and no further bank erosion has occurred.
Bridge eliminations throughout the area have again improved the over-all condition
of our bridges and have been the source of favourable comments.
Ferries.—Routine maintenance was carried out on all ferries in the district, and no
complaints from the public were received.
Reconstruction of the McLure Ferry is going ahead, and towers were completed. K 46 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
Revelstoke District
Maintenance.—Generally speaking, the year was an extremely wet one, and maintenance to gravel roads was very difficult. Very little calcium chloride was needed on the
Big Bend Highway, but some sections were given surface gravel. A large number of
culverts were replaced, particularly on the Big Bend Highway and feeder-roads to the
south of Revelstoke. The Departmental hot-mix unit manufactured pavement surfacing
for Douglas Street, Downie Street (arterial), and Third Street (secondary). A patching
stock-pile using S.C. 2 was made, and this proved very successful the following spring.
An unusually cold February and March caused exceptionally heavy spring break-up.
Construction.—The Construction Branch made a start on the Trans-Canada Highway with a contract at Three Valley Lake. Drilling was done on this project from
December right through until spring.
The district commenced work on the heavy rock bluffs 2Vi miles south of Sicamous
on Mara Lake Road, and a full standard road with 40-foot width was achieved for a third
of a mile.   This work was started in mid-January.
On the Trout Lake-Gerrard Road a diversion eliminating the heavy grades at Le
Beau Creek was completed. This was extremely heavy work, and only a minimum road
was obtained.
On the Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road a very bad curve at Mile 13 was eliminated,
and new approaches were built to the bridge at Gold Creek. A half-mile of road between
Mile 10 and Mile 11 was widened and straightened.
Bridges.—Normal repairs were carried out to all bridges in the district, and, in
addition, a new bridge was built at Mica Creek on the Big Bend Highway and Gold Creek
on the Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road.
Ferries.—A new ferry, the "Arrow Park," was placed in service on the Arrow Lakes
to replace the M.V. " Beaton " which had run a tri-weekly service from Beaton to Arrowhead. The new ferry service makes two complete trips a week to Castlegar and, in
addition, two trips a week to Nakusp. This service is a subsidized service, owned and
operated by the Interior Tug and Transport Company.
The ferry towers at Twelve Mile Ferry were completely reconstructed, and those at
Twenty-four Mile Ferry were repaired. A new dock was built on the west approach to
the Twelve Mile Ferry.
Snow Service.—Considerably more sanding was necessary during the past year, and
the total snowfall for the year was slightly less than normal but was spread out over
a longer period-    The roads were kept open at all times with very little delay to traffic.
Salmon Arm District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout the
year, which included applications of calcium chloride on main highways, townsite streets,
and some side-roads where traffic is considered heavy in thickly populated areas. Extensive work was again carried out improving secondary and side roads by widening, ditching, and gravelling. A large number of wooden culverts were replaced with metal or
concrete pipe.   Little or no tax work was authorized.
Reconstruction.—Trans-Canada Highway, Project No. 377 (contract), Mile 402.7
to Mile 407.63 (4.93 miles), Tappen-Salmon River section, was realigned and constructed to standard. Work commenced in May, 1953, and was 100 per cent completed
by September, 1954.
Trans-Canada Highway, Project No. 532 (contract), Mile 397.08 to Mile 402.69
(5.61 miles), Balmoral—Tappen section, was realigned and constructed to standard.

K 47
Trans-Canada Highway, Project No. 470 (contract), Mile 414.66 to Mile 418.88
(4.22 miles), Larch Hill-Canoe section, was realigned and constructed to standard.
Work commenced in November, 1953, and was 100 per cent completed by the end of
December, 1954.
Work commenced in May, 1954, on Trans-Canada Highway, Project No. 477
(contract), Mile 418.88 to Mile 425.11 (6.23 miles), Canoe-Annis section, but owing
to adverse weather conditions and the nature of the ground only 95 per cent of the clearing and grubbing and 20 per cent of the subgrade were completed by the end of the year.
Squilax-Anglemont Road (No. 446), Project No. 432 (day-labour), Mile 13.9 to
Mile 14.7 (0.8 mile), was reconstructed and widened through solid rock. Work commenced in December, 1953, and was 100 per cent completed by the end of the year.
Salmon River Road (No. 360), Project No. 500 (day-labour), Mile 0.0 to Mile 5.0
(5 miles), was reconstructed, widened, and realigned. Work commenced in July, 1954,
and was 100 per cent completed by the end of the year.
The classified road (No. 146r) through Canoe Village (1.4 miles) (day-labour
project) was reconstructed and grade lifted. Select crushed-gravel surfacing was used.
Work commenced on September 27th and was 100 per cent completed by the end of
the year.
Service Road (No. 298), Mile 0.0 to Mile 1.3 (1.3 miles) (day-labour project) was
reconstructed and road-bed widened to 24 feet. Work commenced in September, 1954,
and was 100 per cent completed by the end of the year.
Pinantan Road (No. 227), Mile 5.9 to Mile 8.4 (2.5 miles) (day-labour project)
was reconstructed and road-bed widened to 24 feet. Work commenced in May, 1954,
and was 100 per cent completed by the end of the year.
Bruce Road (No. 230), Mile 0.0 to Mile 1.25 (1.25 miles), was reconstructed on
new alignment. Work commenced in November, 1954, and was 100 per cent completed
by the end of the year.
Bridges.—Five bridges were replaced by culvert and fill. The following six bridges
were renewed: Flume (No. 53), Mattey (No. 55), Upper Kent (No. 97), Green Lake
(No. 99), Pattsey (No. 125), and Baker (No. 126). The temporary span over the Trans-
Canada Highway on Squilax Bridge (No. 38) was replaced by our own forces with a
60-foot steel span with concrete piers and abutments, all creosoted timber except for deck
and handrail; total length, 112 feet. Twenty-one bridges were repaired. Most bridges
in the district are now in good condition.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The Kamloops—Vernon Highway from Duck Meadows to
Falkland (23.30 miles) was seal-coated by the Surfacing Branch.

forces near Shaw Springs and Spuzzum.
Bridges.—The Yale Creek Bridge was replaced by three spans of continuous steel-
beam construction.
Redecking of several old bridges was required, while an attempt was made to hold
Tank Creek Bridge by blocking and patching. Nine bridges were replaced by culvert
and fill.
Uncontrolled overloads through the Fraser Canyon are requiring constant vigilance
to the remaining old structures.
Ferries.—Service of the North Bend Aerial Ferry was interrupted for a total of two
days for minor repairs and six days to replace main cables. During the twelve months
23,073 vehicles and 51,170 passengers (exclusive of drivers) were transported, an
increase of 14.9 per cent in vehicles and 0.6 per cent in passengers, despite the curtailment of schedule and restriction of vehicles from September 22nd to October 27th due
to damaged carrier cable prior to replacing the cables.
Progressive repairs and improvements were made to the North Bend Aerial and the
Lytton Reaction Ferries.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 4 (GRAND FORKS-GREENWOOD, NORTH
OKANAGAN, SOUTH OKANAGAN, AND SIMILKAMEEN ELECTORAL
DISTRICTS).
Grand Forks-Greenwood District
Roads.—Roads throughout the district were well maintained. On the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway 7 miles of road mix was laid between Grand Forks and Eholt,
resulting in a paved highway from 5 miles east of Grand Forks through to Osoyoos,
a total distance of 88 miles. Three miles of road mix was laid north of Rock Creek on
the Rock Creek-Westbridge Road, with 6 miles remaining to be completed within the
next two years. Another 8.2 miles of farm haulage roads in the valley, immediately

District. Over the Allison Pass, snowfall was far below normal until early March, when
a month of very heavy snowfall was encountered. The maximum snowfall recorded on
the Hope-Princeton Highway for the winter totalled 32 feet.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 5  (COLUMBIA, CRANBROOK,
AND FERNIE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
Columbia District
Maintenance.—A general programme of minor improvements to all highways and
roads was executed throughout the year in the form of gravelling, drainage, raising, and
widening.
Along the Big Bend section of the Trans-Canada Highway considerable improvements were imposed in the form of placing culverts in heretofore undrained locations
and replacing of old and damaged drainage structures. To the extent permitted by financial appropriations, this road was widened and raised in numerous locations as required
and a stretch of 8 miles was regravelled. As the result of chemical treatment and excessive rains, this road was dust-free throughout the year. DISTRICT REPORTS K 53
The Golden-Leanchoil section of the Trans-Canada Highway required constant
attention in that slide conditions were frequent. Numerous culverts were installed along
this stretch of road. Daily inspections were undertaken throughout the winter months
to assure that all culverts were clear and free and to attend the icing conditions which
existed.
Continuous maintenance in the form of grading and ditching became necessary
along the Kootenay-Columbia Highway. Due to excessive rains during the summer
months, extensive slipping and sluffing of road shoulders took place. These were built
up where possible and to the extent permitted by climatic conditions.
A late spring break-up, plus flooding conditions of the principal rivers in the district,
dictated the spending of considerable time on flood-control and building of dykes.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Kicking Horse Canyon section of the Trans-
Canada Highway from Mile 9 to Park Bridge was in progress by contract throughout the
year.
District forces undertook and satisfactorily completed the reconstruction of 4.3 miles
of the Kootenay-Columbia Highway in the vicinity of Edgewater. Our forces undertook
and completed approximately 75 per cent of the work embracing the construction of
approaches to the new bridge at Dutch Creek. As the bridge was not completed by the
contractor, this district's crews were forced to postpone their final activities on this project.
Considerable major maintenance and reconstruction of Westside Road (No. 2)
was carried out in the form of raising and widening 1.4 miles across the Columbia Valley
at Spillimacheen, and widening, ditching, straightening, and gravelling approximately
2 miles between the towns of Athalmer and Wilmer.
Bridges.—One timber bridge was replaced with a 120-foot span Bailey bridge on
the Big Bend Highway by district forces.
During the winter months two timber trestles—Blaeberry Upper north of Golden
and Bugaboo near Spillimacheen—were completely rebuilt by this district's bridge crew.
Major repairs to piers were carried out on Dutch Creek and Spillimacheen River Bridges.
The Columbia River Bridge on the Big Bend had the deck and guard-rails renewed.
All other bridges in the district underwent detailed inspections, and considerable
repairs and preventive maintenance were undertaken thereto as required.
Bituminous Surfacing.—No surfacing was undertaken within the district, although
considerable efforts were exerted in patching existing surfaces.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall conditions were somewhat less than normal, whereas icing
conditions were more than usual. Approximately 41 inches fell within the Golden area
and 35 inches at Athalmer. Snowslide conditions were at a minimum, and no serious
difficulties were encountered.
An early start was made on the opening of the Big Bend Highway, with the result
the road was opened to Boat Encampment shortly after the conclusion of the fiscal year
1954-55. Considerable assistance in this task was gained by the fact that private logging
outfits kept the road open throughout the winter to Mile 38.
Cranbrook District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads. A considerable
amount of bituminous patching was performed on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway
between Goatfell and Moyie, where frost damage was severe. Weeds and brush were
controlled by the use of a chemical spray.
Reconstruction.—Reconstruction of a 3.71-mile section of the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway in the vicinity of Ryan was completed by day-labour, and a 3.50-mile
section of the same highway south of Moyie was completed by contract. Two miles of
gravel surfacing was placed on Cranbrook streets outside of the city limits.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal was relatively light, but sanding was heavy as icing
conditions were particularly bad. K 54 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
Flood Damage.—The Southern Trans-Provincial Highway south of Moyie suffered
some flood damage when the Moyie River overflowed its banks.
Bridges.—Moyie River Bridges Nos. 7 and 10 and Ryan Overhead Bridge No. 8
were replaced by steel and concrete structures. New decks were placed on Moyie River
No. 4 and St. Joseph Creek No. 24. Piles and stringers were renewed on Gold Creek
Main Bridge No. 41. New piles and caps were placed in the bents on the approaches to
Kootenay River (Waldo) Bridge No. 129.
Equipment-shed.—A one-bay equipment-shed was built at Y&hk to house our units
stationed there.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A total of 16.26 miles of bituminous plant-mix pavement
was laid by contract on the Southern Trans-Provincial and Kootenay-Columbia Highways.
Fernie District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout the
district. Side-roads were ditched, and the policy of replacing old wooden culverts with
corrugated-iron pipe was continued. Secondary roads were widened during grading operations.    Sign maintenance, brushing, and ditching, etc., were carried out during the year.
A 6.5-mile section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway east from Elko was
reconstructed and paved. A 0.9-mile section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway
in the vicinity of Alexander Creek was also reconstructed and field-mix pavement was
applied. Seven miles of the Elk Valley Road (No. 4) were reconstructed and gravelled.
Six miles of Highway No. 93 were gravelled southward from the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.
Bridges.—Nose piers of the Elkmouth Bridge were completely redriven and central
piers protected by extensive rock fills. The abutment of the Elkmouth Bridge at its
northerly end was also protected by extensive rock filling.
Nose piles on the Morrissey Bridge were completely replaced, and the central pier
and this same pier was resheathed.
Scouring on the west abutment of Hosmer Bridge was eliminated by heavy concrete
fill.
Normal maintenance was carried out on all other bridges.
Snow-removal.—Light snowfall during the winter eased the load on removal crews.
River-protection Work. — The Southern Trans-Provincial Highway was revetted
heavily at West Fernie and at Mile 565 where the Elk River changed its course.
A dyke was constructed in the vicinity of Hosmer to contain flood-waters, and a
small dyke in North Fernie was raised to prevent waters flowing into Fernie proper.
The Cokato Road was raised in the vicinity of the Brewery Bridge to confine Coal Creek
to its course.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 6  (KASLO-SLOCAN, NELSON-CRESTON,
AND ROSSLAND-TRAIL ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
Kaslo-Slocan District
General.—The highways in Kaslo-Slocan District were kept in good condition
throughout the year. Due to heavy frost during March, difficult break-up conditions
were experienced during the late March then extending through April. Serious break-up
conditions was experienced on the Monashee section of Highway No. 6, necessitating
official closure of this portion during part of April. Apart from that, no disruption to
traffic was experienced.

Perry's, Rosebery, Hill Siding, Arrow Park (East and West), Burton, Fauquier, Needles,
and Edgewood in varying applications from 1,000 feet to one-quarter mile. Solid application was placed from the north end of Box Lake to British Columbia Power Commission's plant south of Nakusp, and also twelve blocks of streets in Nakusp. Solid application was also placed from the south end of Kaslo Creek Bridge to the south boundary
of Mirror Lake, and also through Fletcher Creek flats, Woodbury Creek, Kootenay Florence mine area, and Coffee Creek sections, as well as Shutty Bench.
Bridges.—No major structure was erected, but several minor replacements were
made utilizing the log-stringer with needle-beam design which has proved very efficient,
economical, and quick in erection. The crew was kept busy on deck replacement and
general maintenance.
Bridge Elimination.—Seven bridges were replaced with culverts and fill—two along
Slocan Lake with concrete retaining-walls.
Ferries.—Ferries at Needles and Arrow Park were kept in operation without interruption, excepting for needed changing of cable and motor assemblies. Hulls and superstructures of barges were kept in excellent repair and appearance.

ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 7  (CARIBOO AND LILLOOET
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
Cariboo District (South)
Highway Maintenance and Reconstruction.—Improvements to grade and alignment
were carried out on the Horsefly, Likely, Forest Grove, Williams Lake, and Chilcotin
Roads. Minor improvements, including gravelling, ditching, installation of culverts,
and widening, were incorporated into general maintenance of other roads.
Work was again slowed by wet weather which continued periodically throughout
the summer, and maintenance gravelling and grading were cancelled out on most local
roads by heavy lumber traffic.
New Construction.—The final 2.85 miles of subgrade was completed and 9.34
miles were gravelled, to complete the new road link from Williams Lake to the old
Cariboo Highway at 170 Mile House.
Reconstruction.—A diversion 1,600 feet long was constructed on the Greenlees
Road to avoid a dangerous grade on the hill near the south end of Canim Lake. On
the Lake Road along the south shore of Williams Lake, 2.4 miles were widened and
gravelled. Two miles of the Tatton Station Road were reconstructed and gravelled.
Approximately 500 feet of sharp corners were improved on the Chilcotin Road. A new
entrance, 1,600 feet long, was constructed to the Lone Butte Road at the Cariboo
Highway.
Extensive gravelling renewal was carried out on the Horsefly, Likely, Chilcotin,
Timothy Lake, Exeter Station, Meadow Lake, and Alkali Lake Roads, and spot-gravelling, culvert installation, and drainage improvement were effected on a number of other
roads.
Bridges.—Four bridges were completely reconstructed, two were replaced by culvert and fill, and five others received major repairs.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall varied from 111 inches at Likely to 47 inches at
Williams Lake, with an average of 78 inches for the district, an increase of 13 inches
over last year.
The total cost of snow-removal was up 0.9 per cent from the previous year and
the cost per mile was up 19 per cent.    A total of 1,041 miles of road was kept open.
Sand and Gravel.—A total of 133,306 cubic yards of gravel and 1,108 cubic yards
of sand were hauled from thirty-six pits throughout the district.
Cariboo District (North)
Roads.—Maintenance and minor betterments were carried out as well as available
funds would permit, though all work was greatly handicapped by inclement weather and
some jobs had to be discontinued. The Quesnel-Nazko Road was the most affected by
adverse weather conditions, but, even so, approximately fifty culverts were installed on
this road. Considerable improvement work was done on the Barkerville Road, with
district vote funds.
The residents of both the Blackwater and Nazko areas endeavoured to improve their
roads with funds allocated from district funds but were not very successful because of
conditions. It is expected the improvement work done by them will show up better when
weather returns to normal.
A fairly extensive gravelling and drainage programme was carried out generally
throughout the district. Including projects, the amount of gravel (pit-run and crushed)
applied to the roads was approximately 85,000 cubic yards. DISTRICT REPORTS
K 59
The wet summer and fall of 1954 not only produced exceptionally difficult conditions during that year, but contributed greatly to one of the most severe break-ups on
record in the spring and early summer of 1955.
Projects.—Standard construction to 36 feet wide on the Cariboo Highway was completed as follows: 1.8 miles by North Cariboo District forces, 0.5 mile by South Cariboo
District forces, and 19.4 miles by contracts.
On the Fraser Road a total of 4 miles were completed (in various sections) to
standard requirements (26 feet wide with pit-run gravel surfacing only).
On the Western Plywood Road 1.8 miles were widened where necessary and generally prepared for future paving.   Crushed-gravel surfacing was almost completed.
West Quesnel streets (1.8 miles) were given the same preparation as the Plywood
Road.   Crushed-gravel surfacing was completed.
Paving.—A total of 11.14 miles of plant-mix pavement was applied to three sections
of Cariboo Highway south of Quesnel (contract).
Bridges.—Five small bridges were constructed and repairs made to many others.
A foot-walk was installed on the Baker Creek Bridge. One Howe-truss span of the
Quesnel River Bridge, which collapsed due to damage by a heavy load, was replaced with
a trestle.   Six bridges (mostly small ones) were replaced by culverts and fills.
Ferries.—Three reaction ferries were launched, and pulled from the water in the fall.
Hand-cages carried passengers throughout the winter. It was not possible to build an ice
bridge for vehicles at any of the ferry-sites this year.
Two floating approaches, built during the winter of 1953-54, were installed at Soda
Creek, and major repairs were carried out to the ferry and the landings there; also major
repairs were completed to landings at Macalister Ferry. A new floating approach was
constructed this winter for Gravelle Ferry, as well as a new hand-cage. Extensive repairs
were made to the Soda Creek ferryman's house.
Buildings.—The bridge and building crew carried out extensive alterations in the
Quesnel Court-house and other smaller jobs throughout the district (particularly painting).
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was quite light until the new year, after which it piled up
to almost compare with the heavy snow year of 1951—52. Snowfalls were very frequent,
which made sanding of the hills exceedingly difficult.
Snow-ploughing was carried out more extensively than ever before, and done mostly
with graders. At least two graders operated on double shift (twelve hours each) to cope
with the situation. Two F.W.D. truck ploughs also did considerable ploughing. The
smaller trucks were used mostly for sanding. The Wells crew used two large bulldozers
and a truck plough. Snow continued to fall heavily in the Wells-Barkerville area well
into the next year (approximately 5 feet during the month of May, 1955). The Nazko
Road was ploughed as far as the Blackwater River Bridge four or five times. Some other
roads were ploughed which had not been ploughed previously, and the ploughing of
private roads has become a major part of the work. Hired bulldozers were used to plough
some of the outlying side-roads.
Lillooet District
Major Construction.—The Spences Bridge-Martel section of the Trans-Canada
Highway was completed early in the year and paved by contract.
Reconstruction of short sections on Lytton-Lillooet, Lillooet-Clinton, Bridge River,
Marble Canyon, Pemberton Meadows, and Cornwall (Ashcroft-Ashcroft Manor) Roads
was carried out by day-labour.
The Department commenced construction of a road from Ward's Ferry Bridge
toward Moha through the Bridge River Canyon in October, 1954. Special arrangements
for equipment and men were made with mining and construction companies in the Bridge
River Valley for this construction, which was carried out to 30 per cent completion. K 60 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
Maintenance and Minor Betterments.—The district work was hampered somewhat
during the year by flood damage on the Bonaparte River, Cache Creek, Scottie Creek,
Loon Creek, Clinton Creek, Olson Creek, and small creeks along Route No. 12. Otherwise the programme of improving the important roads was continued in addition to
normal maintenance. The Mamquam River channel was extensively cleaned and straightened up-stream from the Washout Bridge.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal presented no difficulties during the year with the
lighter than normal snowfall.
Bridges.—The Birkenhead Bridge, a 60-foot King truss and two bays of trestles,
was renewed by day-labour on its existing site. The abutment on the right bank was
improved and the pier on the left bank was renewed.
Scottie Creek No. 1 and Scottie Creek No. 2 bridges were rebuilt after washouts.
Extensive repairs were made to Mamquam, Stoney, Meighan, and Pilchuck Bridges. In
addition, maintenance and repairs were made to twenty-three other bridges. Twelve
bridges were replaced with culverts and fill during the year.
Ferries.—Steel pontoons were placed at the Big Bar reaction-ferry site and timber
superstructure rebuilt. Normal maintenance was carried out on the High Bar reaction
and Pavilion cable car-ferries.
Buildings.—The four-bay standard equipment-shed at Clinton, on which construction was commenced last year, was completed by contract.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No.  8  (ATLIN (SOUTH), PRINCE RUPERT,
AND SKEENA ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
Atlin District (South)
Maintenance.—The main maintenance activity in Atlin South centres around Stewart, with some work done at Alice Arm. The relative compactness of the road system
at Stewart enables good maintenance, and throughout the year a high standard was
maintained on the roads and bridges in the area.
A lack of labour at Alice Arm hampers all activity. The main road serves the
Torbrit Silver Mines, and, being laid on an abandoned railway grade, is difficult and
costly to keep smooth.
Reconstruction and Improvements.—The Bear River Wing-dam, which keeps the
Bear River out of the Village of Stewart, was bolstered with shot rock at a cost of
$7,000. In conjunction with this project, rock was quarried for the widening of the
approaches to the Bear River Bridge No. 1, and $5,000 was expended in this connection.
Three bridges in the Alice Arm area were replaced by culvert and fill at an expenditure of $15,718.
Snow-removal.—Snowfalls were generally lighter than those experienced in previous years. Eighteen feet fell at Stewart and 38 feet at Premier. Roads in the Stewart
area were kept open throughout the year with little delay or inconvenience to traffic.
Prince Rupert District
Maintenance.—Roads throughout the district were maintained in satisfactory condition throughout the year, with the exception of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, Prince Rupert-Terrace section. Heavy and continuous rains and wet snow during
the winter and spring resulted in an extremely rough surface despite the continuous
grading. The nature of the ground is such that the road does not become impassable,
although the travelling-time between Prince Rupert and Terrace was twice the normal
summer time.
Bridge maintenance on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was becoming a
problem as the bridges were all built at the same time, during the war-time road con- DISTRICT REPORTS K 61
struction, and were all at the end of their useful life. Replacement and rejuvenation of
these bridges will take several years.
New Construction.—A start was made on the construction of the Masset-Port
Clements Road on the Queen Charlotte Islands, and the work was pushed 5 miles south
from Masset, although this was not finished road. By the end of the fiscal year the
project was approximately 10 per cent completed. The progress made was good
despite heavy rains and difficult clearing.
Reconstruction and Improvements.—Replacement of the plank road between Mas-
set and Tow Hill continued, bringing the work 60 per cent toward completion. This
road, at the north end of the Queen Charlotte Islands, was originally planked because
of the sand conditions. The planks are being removed and the road gravelled, with
excellent results.
Improvements were carried out on the Dunroe-Port Clements Road No. 8, which
will eventually be a link in the Masset-Port Clements Road. The work was seriously
hampered by the wet weather, and this section will require further work at a later date.
At the Galloway Rapids Bridge, which spans from Kaien Island to the Mainland
on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, 8 miles from Prince Rupert, $75,000 was
expended in removing the curved trestle approach at the south or Mainland side. The
intersection of the highway and the Port Edward Road was considerably improved, and
a traffic island was installed.
Two bridges on the Queen Charlotte Islands were replaced by culvert and fill at
a cost of $3,500.
Wharves.—Work was carried out in replacing the floor system in Sheds 2 and 4a,
and the roof of Sheds 1 to 4 was replaced under contract. Minor repairs were carried
out on the shed structures. These are in poor condition and will require renewal before
too long.
Snow-removal.—A snowfall of 15 feet was easily handled on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway. Icing conditions between Port Edward and Prince Rupert required
constant attention to ensure continuous traffic for Columbia Cellulose employees at
Watson Island.
Snowfall in the Queen Charlottes and other islands was relatively light.
Skeena District (East)
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads in the district.
All roads were regularly graded and maintained. Considerable brush-cutting was done
on major roads.   Minor improvements were made to several side-roads.
Construction.—The programme of reconstruction on the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway was carried on. Approximately 10 miles were rebuilt and portions of the
previous year's work were finished off.
Two bridges were replaced by pipe arch culverts and fills, and the fill was completed over Chicken Creek No. 1.
Bridges.—General maintenance was carried out on bridges throughout the district.
This consisted mainly of deck repairs. All bridges on the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway had handrails painted.
Ferries.—General maintenance was carried out on all ferries in the district.
Snow-removal.—All roads in the district were kept free of snow and ice.
Skeena District (West)
Maintenance.—All roads were maintained in good condition throughout the spring
and summer. During the fall and winter heavy rains, wet snows, and constant thawing
conditions made proper maintenance impossible. The Northern Trans-Provincial Highway in particular became badly pot-holed and driving speeds were cut in half.  DISTRICT REPORTS
K 63
The bridge-maintenance programme fell behind because of the bridge crew's preoccupation with the reconstruction of the west approaches of the Terrace Bridge.
Major Bridge Reconstruction.—The timber trestle which spanned the C.N.R. main
line and served as an approach to the Terrace Bridge was torn out and replaced.
Traffic was directed over the new bridge of the C.N.R.'s Terrace-Kitimat line. An
over-pass consisting of reinforced-concrete piers and abutments and three steel-beam
spans with concrete deck was connected by a gravel fill to the two-span approach
trestle. This trestle was built on reinforced concrete piers, and utilized a timber deck
on steel beams.   The work was 100 per cent complete by the year's end.
Reconstruction and Improvements.—Several improvement projects were carried out
in the Skeena District (West). Calcium chloride was applied to the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway, but the effect was nullified by early summer rains. Ten thousand
dollars was expended in riprapping with shot rock on the Skeena—Kwinitza section of
the same road. On the Dairy Road, just north of the Village of Terrace, a cedar-piling
retaining-wall was constructed and improvements made to the drainage to prevent
further erosion during run-off.
Two miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Terrace were widened
and realigned. This work entailed blasting solid rock along the Copper River and
Edgar Bluff sections;  $55,000 was expended on this improvement.
Five thousand dollars worth of gravelling was put on the Remo Road, and $20,000
was spent in standardizing 4 miles of the Kalum Road.
Six bridges were replaced by culvert and fill at a cost of $25,300.
Snow-removal.—Maximum total snowfall in Skeena District (West) was 18 feet,
measured at Exstew, 30 miles west of Terrace. No road closures over a few hours
were experienced. The Kwinitza slide came down early in the spring of 1955, and the
road was opened by a C.N.R. bulldozer which was near by.
No roads froze sufficiently to give firm and smooth surfaces. Considerable frost
damage was experienced in the areas immediately surrounding the Village of Terrace.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 9  (FORT GEORGE AND
OMINECA ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
Fort George District
Maintenance.—An unusually severe spring break-up was experienced throughout
the district, causing very bad road conditions. This was followed by a wet summer
when the recorded precipitation was 50 per cent more than the previous forty-year
average. While it was possible to bring back the main roads to reasonable conditions,
many of the side-roads were in bad state most of the summer.
Reconstruction.—All projects were considerably hampered by the unusually wet
season, and none were completed. The clay and silt soils encountered were too wet
for adequate handling by machinery, causing extensive delays.
Bridges.—A new steel and concrete bridge was erected over the Salmon River on
the John Hart Highway, replacing a wooden Howe truss in bad condition.
Following last year's programme, light structures built during the war at Upper
Fraser Bridge, Lower Fraser Bridge, and Yellowhead Creek, all between Red Pass and
Yellowhead, were replaced with standard pile trestle bridges.
Ferries.—The ferries at Isle Pierre and Hansard operated as in previous years.
Surfacing.—Thirteen miles of hot-mix paving was completed on the John Hart
Highway north of Prince George. However, on the Cariboo Highway south of Prince
George, out of an 8-mile paving contract, only 1.3 miles could be completed due to
delays caused by extremely wet weather. K 64 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
Snow-removal.—The total snowfall was about normal but was later than usual.
Very heavy snow was again recorded in the Pine Pass area of the John Hart Highway,
the total fall there being 343 inches. Snow-drifting was less than usual, except in the
McBride area.
Omineca District (East)
General Maintenance.—The wettest season on record was experienced in 1954,
with the result that clay sections of roads became a sea of mud in many cases. It was
impossible to maintain roads in a satisfactory condition.
Reconstruction.—On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway 7.7 miles of road
easterly from Fort Fraser was reconstructed to standard requirements. This section was
fully completed and received a base course of gravel in preparation for paving.
Numerous short sections of the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road were also reconstructed, and a number of major improvements were carried out on the Manson Creek
Road.
Approximately 25 miles of mining-road was reconstructed between Discovery
Creek and Uslika Lake on the Aiken Lake Road.
Bridges.—The Germansen River Bridge was reconstructed by way of putting in a
King span, replacing a rock-filled crib bridge. Fifteen other bridges were repaired during the year. The Nechako River Bridge at Fort Fraser was riprapped with quarried
rock, and an asphalt plank deck was laid.
Ferries.—The Hulatt Ferry operated throughout the year, but traffic was very
light, indicating that the ferry service at this point is not justified.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was quite heavy during the winter, and a total of 526
miles of road was kept open during the season, at an average cost of $87.92 per mile.
Omineca District (West)
Maintenance.—The major part of the maintenance throughout the district consisted of spot-gravelling due to the very wet summer season. Most of the subgrades of
the roads remained soft throughout the whole year. Ditching was carried out on the
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway and the North Francois Road. The increasing use
of farm roads by heavy lumber-trucks has aggravated the maintenance problem to a
great extent.
Reconstruction.—Approximately 6 miles of Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
west of Burns Lake were rebuilt to standard. One-half mile of new grade was built at
Chicken Creek on the Keefe's Landing-Ootsa Lake Road to eliminate a very bad hill.
Gravelling was carried out near Wistaria on the portion of the road rebuilt in 1953.
Three miles of road was rebuilt on the Eakin Settlement Road, bringing it up to an
all-weather standard. Palling Settlement Road was ditched and gravelled, greatly helping the farms in that district.
Bridges at Swanson Creek and Hammarberg Creek were eliminated and replaced
by steel culvert and fill.
Bridges.—Pleasant Valley Bridge was repaired, and a running-deck was laid down.
A stringer span at Takysie Lake was replaced. A new bridge was built at Hatch Creek
to replace a large culvert washed out in the spring floods. Repairs and routine maintenance were carried out on other various bridges in the district.
Ferries.—The Francois Lake Ferry operated throughout the whole year. Due to
the very mild winter, little ice was encountered during the winter months.
Snow-removal.—Although the general snowfall was lighter than usual due to a
mild winter, there was more need for sanding and culvert maintenance. All roads were
kept well ploughed throughout the winter. DISTRICT REPORTS
K 65 K 66 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No.   10  (ATLIN  (NORTH)  AND
PEACE RIVER ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
Atlin District (North)
Roads.—A 2Vi-mile revision was completed on Surprise Lake Road. The Atlin
Highway was gravelled to the extent of 3,000 cubic yards of pit-run gravel. Various
soft sections on the Ruffner Road, Ruby Creek Road, and Upper Spruce Creek Road
were gravelled. The O'Donnell River Road was brushed out from the Hot Springs to
O'Donnell River. A realignment and widening was completed from the mouth of Otter
Creek to Wright Creek Camp (4 miles). Three emergency shelter cabins were constructed on the Atlin Highway.
Bridges.—The McKee Creek Bridge on O'Donnell River Road was completely
rebuilt and the approaches revised. New piers were installed under Pine Creek Bridge
(King truss).    Palmer Lake and Burdette Bridges were replaced by culvert and fill.
Snow-removal.—A normal winter snowfall was dealt with successfully and the
roads of major importance kept open. The glaciers on the Atlin Highway were controlled by means of our fence and fires, and the highway was kept open throughout the
winter.
Stikine
Roads.—The Glenora Road was reconstructed on a new location from Mile 6 to
Mile 8, and various sections of this road were gravelled. Extensive repairs were carried
out to Dease Lake Road, damaged by extreme run-off. Brushing was carried out on
the following pack-trails: Klappan Trail, Tahltan Trail, and Teslin Trail. A limited
widening was carried out on Callbreath Road. A four-bay equipment-shed was constructed by our forces at Telegraph Creek, material being cut at the Department's
sawmill in that area.
Bridges.—Casca No. 1 and Eighteen Mile Creek Bridges were reconstructed, and
various other bridges were redecked and repaired. The following bridges on Dease Lake
Road were replaced by culvert and fill: Seven Mile Creek, Twenty-five Mile Creek,
Nine Mile Creek, and Twenty-four Mile Creek.
Lower Post
The streets were widened out and buildings on the right-of-way were removed.
Pit-run gravel was spread on the improved streets.
Peace River District
Maintenance.—Road maintenance in general was satisfactory. Main roads and
farm-to-market roads were kept up with Departmental and hired equipment, and minor
improvements were undertaken. On side-roads, maintenance and minor improvements,
were undertaken using farmers' tractors and Departmental implements, allowing farmers
to work out their taxes.   The latter is not an economical operation.
Following unusual weather in the spring, bad frost-boil conditions developed on
the John Hart Highway from Mile 205 to Mile 240. Hired tractors were utilized to
keep traffic moving, and subsequently major gravel renewal with widening of cuttings
and improvements to drainage was carried out. Eight and one-half miles of the connecting road from the end of pavement at Arras to Dawson Creek were gravelled with
pit-run gravel.
The unpaved section of the Dawson Creek-Alberta Boundary Road became very
difficult to maintain under the heavy spring traffic, and three large fills on this road
became unstable due to an unusually wet summer. Two fills were remodelled by lowering the grade to maintain width, and lengthening the culvert structures under them.
The fill near Tupper Creek was strengthened by driving piling, and remodelling remains DISTRICT REPORTS K 67
to be done. This culvert was also lengthened. Seven and one-half miles of processed
base from Mile 18.7 to the Alberta Boundary had to be ripped, and this length has
reverted to an ordinary gravelled road.
Four miles of previously reconstructed farm-to-market roads were lightly gravelled
with pit-run material.
Reconstruction.—In Peace River (North) the following day-labour projects were
completed by Department forces and hired equipment: —
Road No. 103, Fort St. John-Alberta Boundary: A muskeg section was completed successfully and is holding traffic.
Road No. 108, Alces West: Approximately 12 miles of road was either widened
out and elevated or reconstructed on new alignment and elevated. This reconstruction
has improved travelling conditions tremendously during the past spring.
Road No. 114, Montney-Stoddart: A 4-mile section from Montney village west
was widened and elevated; this section was also gravelled and no difficulty was experienced during spring break-up.
Road No. 110, Clayhurst:   A 6-mile section of this road was widened and elevated.
Road No. 101, Fort St. John-Upper Pine: A successful gravelling programme was
completed over a distance of 12 miles.
Road No. 103, Fort St. John-Alberta Boundary: The Beatton River Hill was
widened and gravelled for a distance of 5 miles.
In Peace River (South) the following day-labour projects were carried out:—
Road No. 1, Alberta Boundary-Dawson Creek: Clearing of cuttings was completed, and shoulders widened and regravelling done over 3.5 miles of this road south
of Pouce Coupe.
Road No. 4, Pouce Coupe-Briar Ridge: Four miles of reconstruction to 28-foot
width was completed, with improvements to grade, from Mile 1 to Mile 3.5, and from
Mile 7.8 to the Alberta Boundary at Mile 9.3.
Road No. 32, Dawson Creek-Briar Ridge: Widening to 28 feet and regrading
were undertaken from Mile 4.5 to Mile 7.9 and from Mile 8.5 to Mile 9.5, to complete
reconstruction of this road.
Road No. 76, Manse, was reconstructed to 28-foot width, including realignment of
the junction with Eighth Street, Dawson Creek, and gravelled with 2-inch crushed
sandstone.
Road No. 3, Pouce Coupe-Clay hurst Ferry: Mile 1.5 to Mile 11.5 was gravelled,
the first 4.5 miles with 2-inch crushed sandstone gravel and the balance of 5.5 miles
with pit-run gravel.
Road No. 4, Pouce Coupe-Briar Ridge: 2-inch crushed sandstone gravel was put
down from Mile 0 to Mile 3.5, and pit-run gravel from Mile 7.8 to Mile 9.3.
Road No. 32, Dawson Creek-Briar Ridge: Pit-run gravel was laid from Mile 3.0
to Mile 9.0.
Construction.—No construction under contract was undertaken during the year.
However, funds were provided to clear the right-of-way of the Arras-Dawson Creek
section of the John Hart Highway. This work was done by Department forces during
the winter. In the course of the clearing operation some 10,000 jack-pine fence-posts
were taken out for use in day-labour projects for the next fiscal year.
Bridges.—Twelve bridges were replaced with new structures, and three bridges
which had been started in 1953-54 were completed. Varied repairs were carried out
to twenty-three bridges, with minor repairs to another thirty-eight. Two were dismantled, one being abandoned and the other replaced with culvert and fill.
In rebuilding the Lynx Creek Bridge, which was floated into the Peace River in
a flash flood, the complete bridge superstructure was found on an island below the
Alaska Highway Bridge over the Peace. The structure was dismantled, carried by boat
and trucks back to its original site, and rebuilt on rock-filled cribs.    Incidentally, most K 68 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1954-55
of the stringers of this bridge originated in the temporary bridge over the Parsnip River
on the John Hart Highway and were recovered from the Peace River above Hudson
Hope.
Three bridge crews were employed for the greater part of the year to carry out the
above works.
Twenty-two bridges were replaced by culvert and fill.
Ferries.—The Hudson Hope and Clayhurst Ferries operated during the ice-free
period. Passengers were carried in small boats over both these crossings when ice was
running during the autumn and spring. Material for a new small boat for Hudson
Hope was purchased, and this will be built by the ferryman.
The Clayhurst Ferry operated on a double shift for the whole season. It is evident
that a larger scow to accommodate more than two vehicles is needed to cope with the
increasing traffic. Delays to the operation of this ferry were caused by the fill over the
Alces River (Moose Creek) washing out twice during the summer due to flash floods.
Drilling at a possible bridge-site and a complete survey for a bridge and road approaches
were undertaken.
Snow-removal.—Heavy snow was not experienced until the latter part of December, except on the John Hart Highway. Snowfall was normal, but a series of chinook
winds took off the snow cover and eased the problem of keeping roads open. With the
increase in settlement it has been found necessary to increase the mileage of roads kept
open, with a reduction in roads opened once a month. Roads snow-ploughed are: 575
miles kept open continuously, 115 miles opened once a month, and 196.5 miles opened
in the spring.
With the increase in school-bus routes the mileage of roads to be kept open continuously will continue to lengthen.
Glacier conditions on the Beatton River Hill on Road No. 103, Fort St. John to
Alberta Boundary, were controlled by glacier-fences.
General.—A new site for the Department's yard at Fort St. John was purchased.
New buildings on this new site are an essential to the efficient maintenance of the units
based at Fort St. John. The existing yard is too small, and the buildings are merely a
collection of poorly built sheds, added to from time to time, and with inadequate heating, light, or facilities for the repair work which has to be carried out.
Maintenance crews on the John Hart Highway are still housed in the temporary
quarters contrived originally from old construction shacks at Little Boulder Creek.
Some improvements have been carried out to bring the living conditions up to a better
standard, but this leaves a lot to be desired. With the very arduous weather conditions
prevailing during the winter on this highway, it would improve efficiency of snow-
removal operations if accommodation and garage space of a reasonable standard could
be provided.
The district as a whole, both north and south of the Peace River, is in need of
better maintenance. There are 2,013 miles of road, of which only 234.4 are gravel
and 17.5 are paved. Improvement in maintenance can only be achieved by provision
of additional machinery, particularly power-graders, and application of more gravel.
The latter material is scarce in most localities. Large deposits do exist, but their use
involves a considerable haul. Available deposits can be operated most efficiently if the
gravel is crushed, so that the total tonnage hauled is usable. A crushing plant in the
district would enable this to be done.

6 REPORT OF DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER
K 101
REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER
The following pages present the financial report of the Department of Public Works.
Although by Acts of the 1955 Legislature the Department of Highways was created as
separate from the Department of Public Works, this Report is submitted under the
Department of Public Works, as the Estimates as passed by the Legislature were approved
for that Department and, in addition, the creation of the Department of Highways was
not made effective until approximately March 16th, 1955.
Also, may I report that a general survey of the Department of Highways and the
Department of Public Works was commenced in March, 1955, by the Civil Service
Commission, assisted by Departmental personnel seconded to the Civil Service Commission for that purpose.
J. E. Moore,
Departmental Comptroller.  STATEMENT OF EXPENDITURES
