Office of the Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings,
October 19th, 1956.  HIGHWAYS REPORT
REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER
Douglas Building,
Victoria, B.C., October 19th, 1956.
The Honourable P. A. Gaglardi,
Minister of Highways, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—A report on the activities of the Department for the fiscal year 1955-56 is
herewith submitted for your consideration.
Contracts were let for 90.07 miles, the principal work undertaken comprising 38.22
miles on the Trans-Canada Highway, 6.74 on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway,
14.38 miles on the Cariboo Highway, and 5.08 miles on the Okanagan Highway. Other
main roads throughout the Province that were constructed or reconstructed comprised
25.65 miles.
During the fiscal year seventeen bridge projects were completed and construction
commenced on an additional fourteen bridges. Three of the completed bridges—namely,
Thetis Lake Overpass, Tappen Overhead Crossing, and Yale Creek Bridge—are on the
Trans-Canada Highway.
Extensive location and survey work was undertaken, comprising 204.1 miles of
final location, 82.7 of preliminary survey, 22.0 miles of reconnaissance, and 42.0 miles
of aerial mapping, exclusive of some 30 miles of preliminary aerial mapping for initial
studies of the Rogers Pass route.
During the year 22,513 miles of highways and 10,499 miles of trails have been
maintained, and this mileage comprises 3,421 of trunk highways, 3,283 miles of main
highways, and 15,809 miles of other roads. In addition to this total, 624.57 miles were
classified as arterial or secondary, details of which are shown in statement attached to
this Report. Some 14,404 miles of highway were kept clear of snow, involving 686,634
snow-plough miles, at an average cost of $248.29 per mile kept open.
Five new steel ferries were built. Some 2,476,247 vehicles were carried by the
entire ferry system during the year.
The total number of vehicles carried on the following ferries were: Agassiz-
Rosedale (Fraser River), 116,870; Castlegar (Southern Trans-Provincial Highway),
456,545; Kelowna (Okanagan Highway), 445,617; Nelson, 488,509; Ladner-Wood-
ward (Fraser River), 378,002.
The number of letters handled by the Department comprised 104,645.
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.
Where 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.
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. N 6 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
During the fiscal year 1955-56 seventeen bridge projects were completed and construction was commenced on an additional fourteen bridges.
Three of the completed bridges—namely, Thetis Lake Overpass, Tappen Overhead
Crossing, and Yale Creek Bridge—are on the Trans-Canada Highway, while work was
commenced but not completed during the year on Nanaimo River Bridge and Yoho
Bridge, also on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Details of the principal bridges constructed or reconstructed during the year are
listed elsewhere in the Report.
Work on Park Bridge on the Trans-Canada Highway, which had been halted due
to slide conditions during the summer of the previous year, was resumed.
Severe floods in the early summer and fall caused by heavy rains resulted in loss
or serious damage to several timber bridges, notably Stone Creek, Sicamous Creek,
Woodbury Creek, Mission Creek Bridge No. 2, Sanca Creek, and Mamquam Washout
Bridge. The first four bridges were replaced with temporary timber structures by district
crews; Sanca Creek Bridge was replaced by a Bailey bridge; and Mamquam Washout
Bridge was replaced by a combination steel and timber structure on an improved alignment by the Lillooet District bridge crew.
The Canadian Pacific Railway bridge across the Fraser River at Mission was put
out of service by the overturning of one concrete pier due to scour and the resultant
collapse of one span. This bridge had been adapted to carry both highway and rail
traffic and is a vital highway link between Mission and Abbotsford. A ferry service across
the river at Mission was inaugurated by the Highways Department immediately following
the damage to the bridge; this ferry service remained in operation during the remainder
of the year, pending the repairs to the bridge by the railway company.
During the year, soundings were taken at all major highway bridges on the Fraser,
Thompson, and Columbia Rivers to ascertain if scour had taken place, but no serious
conditions were revealed.   Remedial measures were carried out where necessary.
In order to relieve the traffic on the Capilano Bridge in West Vancouver, a temporary
timber bridge was built alongside by the district bridge crew. This proved of great
benefit, as four lanes of traffic can now be accommodated instead of the former two lanes.
Satisfactory progress was maintained on the construction of the Agassiz—Rosedale
Bridge, and erection of the steelwork of the truss spans commenced in midwinter. The
last of the contracts in connection with this project was awarded—namely, the electric-
lighting installation.
Further projects for the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges Authority were
commenced—namely, Nelson Bridge, Second Narrows Bridge, and Kelowna Bridge—
according to the plans and specifications drawn up by the consulting engineering firms
engaged by the Authority.
Much of the work in connection with toll bridges is channelled through this office,
and the increasing amount of attention which has to be devoted by the bridge staff to
these large and important projects has an adverse effect on the orderly and efficient
handling of the Provincial bridge programme.
Toward the end of the year a shortage of structural steel began to manifest itself,
resulting in a slowing-down in the construction of some projects.
C. K. SAUNDERS,
Senior Bridge Engineer.
REPORT OF THE SENIOR CONSTRUCTION ENGINEER
Trans-Canada Highway.—Forty-two miles were completed during the year on
various sections from Vancouver Island to Yoho Park boundary (eastern limit of British
Columbia section of highway).   Much of this was rock work. REPORT OF THE SENIOR CONSTRUCTION ENGINEER

Total   946
Increase in total number of trucks from April 1st, 1955, nil, with average age 6 years.
EQUIPMENT FUND
A survey of Departmental rental rates was made at the end of the previous fiscal
year, resulting in a reduction of the rental rates of approximately 30 per cent.
During the year 458 units, with a present value of $3,686,818, were operated at
a credit of $419,596.70 after $962,607.85 for repairs was deducted from the total rentals.
Total depreciation for the year on Equipment Fund units was $531,710.34.
The sum of $724,725.21 was expended on forty-one major units, including graders,
tractors, and screening plants. Seven major units were disposed of during the year.
A further sum of $153,318.13 was allocated for the purchase of eight additional units.
The following is the number of each type of unit being operated under the Equipment
Fund as at March 31st, 1956:—
Compressors   8

REPORT OF THE SAFETY OFFICER
Hereunder are listed the statistics of accidents involving Government vehicles.
It is of interest to note that claims paid for damage to private vehicles have remained
fairly constant as to amount in each of the last three years. Included in the total of
claims paid during the reporting year is an amount of $3,965 for bodily injury to
claimants in three separate accidents. In one accident a pedestrian was injured by
a Public Utilities vehicle at Prince George, for which we paid the claimant $3,500.
A second accident was a collision between a Forest Service vehicle and a private vehicle
in the Fraser Canyon.    Our costs in this for bodily injury amounted to $65.   The third N  12
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
claim arose out of a brush between a pedestrian and a Game Commission vehicle and
occurred in the City of Vancouver. Settlement was effected in the amount of $400.
This leaves the amount of $11,485 paid out to settle property-damage claims.
The figures which are available to us indicate the cost to repair Government vehicles
for damage arising out of accidents to be $47,000, less $15,791 recovered.
The onset of midwinter conditions in early November is reflected in the number of
accidents which occurred during that month. Comparison shows twenty-six accidents
occurred during November, 1954, while November, 1955, shows sixty-one accidents
occurred.
Hereunder are the figures showing the accidents and costs for the year:—

Nine meetings of the Interdepartmental Safety Committee were held, with an average
of eight committee members attending, for which we express our thanks to the committee
members.
Safety promotional work was carried out in the field in each district, using posters,
films, etc. N  14
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
In addition to the foregoing, a considerable number of other claims were investigated
and processed—claims which arose out of accidents on bridges, ferries, striking guardrails, flooding, etc.
Interest in accident prevention seems to be high in all departments, and good
co-operation has been received throughout.

Safety Officer.
REPORT OF THE SENIOR LOCATION ENGINEER
Highway-location surveys undertaken during the 1955-56 fiscal year are detailed
in the accompanying report, showing 204.1 miles of finalized location, 82.7 miles of
preliminary surveys, 22.0 miles of reconnaissance, and 42.0 miles of aerial mapping,
exclusive of some 30 miles of preliminary aerial mapping for initial studies of the Rogers
Pass route.
The total cost of surveys was $497,671.69, of which $104,744.20 was expended on
Trans-Canada Highway locations.
Legal surveys of rights-of-way, undertaken in conjunction with the Surveyor-
General's Department, and also by Departmental personnel and private surveyors, are
not detailed in this report.
The design of multi-lane highways in North and West Vancouver, south from Oak
Street in Vancouver to the International Boundary, Pattullo Bridge to Abbotsford, and
the by-pass of Chilliwack has been carried on, demanding an increasing amount of time,
study, and personnel. To keep abreast of traffic needs, this type of survey and design
will, in the near future, become a major part of our operations. REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER N 15

REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
Results of activities during the past fiscal year show a continued increase in over-all
maintenance operations, particularly in winter services on roads.
The total expenditure for all maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries amounted
to $14,503,283.59, showing an increase of $1,368,452.96 over the previous year and an
increase of nearly $2,000,000 over the 1953-54 fiscal year.
Largest single increase over the previous year was for snow-removal and sanding.
This year's total of 14,404 miles of highway kept open, an increase of 210 miles from
the previous year, was winter-serviced at an average cost of $248.49 per mile. Total
expenditure for snow-removal and sanding amounted to $3,576,373.39, an increase of
$1,670,633.66 over the previous year. During the course of winter maintenance, a total
of 686,634 snow-plough miles were logged by the Department's snow-ploughing equipment. Unit costs per mile of road kept open for traffic ranged from $55 per mile to
$3,330 per mile.
Despite one of the longest winters with one of the heaviest snowfalls on record, all
main and market roads were in continuous service for traffic. Some short-period closures
were necessitated in the Fraser Canyon during the winter, where the worst snow and icing
conditions on record were encountered.    Winter operations were greatly facilitated in N 16 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
several areas through the use of radio-telephone communications, and it is hoped that
a Province-wide radio-telephone system can be inaugurated in the near future.
All districts were recipients of an increase in district maintenance allotments, which
reflected an increase in standard of maintenance throughout each district. However, only
a minimum amount of improvement in maintenance standard was attained on our main
highways, particularly brushing out and clearing the rights-of-way of these highways.
A shortage of unskilled labour for this type of work was the principal cause, and necessitated an increase in the use of chemical spray, with different types of herbicide, each
peculiar to different species of vegetation and tree growths.
The problem of maintenance of farm roads that are being used by the logging industry
is slowly being solved. Improvements to these roads are gradually reducing the amount
of maintenance expenditures on them, although the proportion of district maintenance
funds expended on these roads is still much too high. However, it can be expected that
with continuous increases in general improvements to these roads, the problem will
dissipate itself.
A marked improvement in the proficiency of personnel of the engineering districts
in highway-construction work was attained this year. A total of $7,523,394.86, an
increase of $2,639,061.19 over the previous fiscal year, was expended and administered
by the engineering districts, with commendable results in day-labour highway-construction
projects involving general grade and surface improvements, reconstruction of existing
grades, and new construction.   Summary in terms of miles is as follows:—
Miles
New construction (all types)  122
Standard reconstruction (all types)  600
General improvements—
Grade improvements—alignment, profile, etc  585
Asphalt surfacing—road mix, seal-coat, etc  130
Dust-control treatments  250
A total of seventy bridges were eliminated by replacement with culverts and fills.
The number of bridges that can be eliminated by the above means has been reduced to a
point where relatively few bridge-elimination projects are economically feasible now.
F. E. Dembiske,
Senior Maintenance Engineer.
REPORT OF THE SENIOR RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
Right-of-way negotiations for the 1955-56 fiscal year resulted in a total of 996
settlements being completed. Four claims were referred to arbitration proceedings for
settlement. Cost of right-of-way, yard-sites, and other properties purchased by the Department totalled $1,144,613.56. The foregoing includes properties acquired by the Department on behalf of the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges Authority.
Surveys assigned subsequent to completion of construction work resulted in approximately 62 miles of right-of-way being permanently established.
Sales by public tender of lands acquired surplus to highway requirements and of
buildings to be cleared from rights-of-way totalled fifty-five, with a recovery of funds in
the amount of $57,903.59 to the Department.
At the close of the fiscal year, subsequent to reorganization within the Department,
arrangements were being carried out to establish field offices for Right-of-way Agents at
New Westminster, Kamloops, Nelson, and Prince George.
L. J. Moore,
Senior Right-of-way Agent. REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES N  17
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
In the 1955-56 fiscal year sixty-one ferries were operated under the jurisdiction of
the Department of Highways. The ferry fleet consisted of twelve major power-ferries,
eleven privately owned chartered ferries, eleven power-cable ferries, sixteen reaction ferries, and eleven miscellaneous ferries.
All ferries were carefully inspected during this period, and all recommended repairs
and renewals were carried out. The entire system operated very efficiently, and interruptions of service were kept to a minimum.
Five new steel ferries were built in 1955-56, and one steel ferry was purchased from
the owners.   Three of these new additions replaced wood ferries.
A fifteen-car steel ferry was purchased by this Department and put into service on
the Upper Arrow Lake, and a charter was granted to a private company to operate a ferry
service on the Lower Arrow Lake. A new cable-ferry was also put into service on the
Lower Arrow Lake at Renata.
New charters were granted to private companies to operate ferry services from
Texada Island to Westview, from Vesuvius to Crofton, and from Gulf Islands to Swartz
Bay.
A new steel portable ferry was built, which has a capacity of nine vehicles. This
ferry consists of three independent water-tight pontoons and can readily be transported
by rail or trailer to any point in the Province for emergency use.
Due to the closure of the Mission Bridge in July, 1955, a ferry service has been
maintained at that site. This has proven to be a most difficult undertaking, but in spite
of adverse conditions approximately 35,000 vehicles per month were carried.
In the 1955-56 fiscal year 2,476,247 vehicles were carried by the entire ferry
system. This represents an increase of 144,658 vehicles over the preceding year. During
this period 3,769,598 passengers were carried. The Nelson Ferry carried the largest
volume of traffic, having a total of 488,509 vehicles.

IV. DEPARTMENTAL GRAVEL-CRUSHING PLANTS
During the year the Department's six crushing plants operated in a total of twenty-
one gravel-pits throughout the Province.
The plants produced a total of approximately 750,000 tons of %-inch crushed
aggregate. E B Wilkins,
Senior Paving Engineer. REPORT OF THE SENIOR TRAFFIC ENGINEER N 21
REPORT OF THE SENIOR TRAFFIC ENGINEER
The Traffic Branch continued, as in the past few years, its programme of highway-
signing and pavement-marking, traffic-volume surveys, channelization of intersections,
and traffic-signal studies and installations. An increasing amount of time was devoted
to the study, design, and installation of traffic signals and highway-lighting, and considerable time was spent in conducting and compiling the results of an origin-destination
survey within the Municipalities of Surrey, Langley, and Matsqui to aid in the location
and design of interchanges on the proposed Trans-Canada Highway.
The manufacture of traffic signs was continued during the year, with emphasis more
on special signs, as there was a lesser demand for the standard regulatory and warning
signs. All signs used on Provincial highways are made in the Department's own sign-shop.
Highway signs throughout the Province are in good condition, and almost all are less
than 5 years old. Most noteworthy of standard regulatory signs is the new standard
red " Stop " signs, which will become more and more common as the replacement
programme continues.
Sign maintenance on all numbered routes was carried on by three Traffic Branch
maintenance trucks. Other sign-maintenance work was done by district maintenance
crews.
Constant liaison was maintained by the Traffic Branch with the R.C.M.P. traffic
section, particularly with respect to accident-prone locations, and improvements at such
locations on the highways were made where possible.
Traffic-line painting has become a necessary part of the highways, as there was an
increasing public demand for this proven traffic-control measure during the year.
Results of the programme of road and laboratory testing of traffic paints are
apparent, as mileage of roads painted each succeeding year remains practically the same
despite a yearly increase in the total miles of highway having a traffic line. The reason
for this is the increased life of the lines, with some sections of centre line lasting three
years. During the year 1,200 miles of highway was painted, using 15,600 gallons of
paint and 74,600 pounds of glass bead.   Average cost per road mile was $71.94.
The Traffic Branch again made its annual traffic-volume survey, covering all main
highways. The information gained is essential in determining present and future highway
needs. This Branch co-operated with the Metropolitan Highway Planning Board for the
Greater Vancouver area in an extensive origin-destination survey to determine future
traffic needs for the Burrard Peninsula. An origin-destination survey was also conducted
by this Branch in the Muncipalities of Surrey, Langley, and Matsqui to determine the
required accesses to a proposed controlled access highway through the Fraser Valley.
Traffic-volume studies at intersections were continued, to aid in deciding what traffic-
control measures to apply.
Intersection traffic-control problems continue as a major part of the Traffic Branch
work during the year. Sixteen intersections throughout the Province were controlled by
channelizing-islands, and, in addition, at five of these the installation of modern mercury
vapour lighting further added to safety. Of ten " Stop and Go " traffic signals installed,
two were of the traffic-actuated type, which, though more costly than the fixed-time type,
are proving capable of handling traffic more efficiently at rural and suburban intersections.
One flashing traffic beacon was installed in addition to the above-mentioned " Stop
and Go " signals.
Because of the rapid increase in urban traffic, there is an increasing demand and
necessity for traffic signals and channelization, and a continued expansion of this aspect
of traffic-control work is very necessary. N 22

i/3 REPORT OF THE SENIOR MATERIALS ENGINEER N 23
In the geometric design of toll facilities and highways, the Traffic Branch worked
closely with the Bridge and Location Branches to ensure that facilities being planned
were adequate, safe, and efficient for the expected traffic volumes.
J. H. Harding,
Senior Traffic Engineer.
REPORT OF THE SENIOR MATERIALS ENGINEER
The fiscal year of 1955-56 saw a further increase in the Testing Branch activities;
at the same time there was a further increase in the number of soils, gravel, and concrete
problems encountered over the Province during the year, also frost heaving and spring
break-up took great toll of our roads, both new and old. The materials Engineer has
operated the Testing Branch now for six years, and it is believed that each and every
engineer working in the Highways Department recognizes the necessity for soils studies,
testing, and inspection work as carried out by this Branch. However, they expressed
the fact, as we do, that we are doing too little and too late. We should be tackling the
problems of frost heaving, drainage, slides, and so on during the design and planning
stages of the road rather than after the road has been completed and large amounts of
money spent on these various problems. The sub-surface exploration work being carried
on with the auger drilling outfit was stepped up considerably, and a large Boyles Brothers
diamond drill added to the equipment to carry out drilling for the larger bridges and
slides. An auger drilling-rig, including a back-hoe mounted on a custom-built swamp
buggy, has been designed and is nearing completion. This will offer greater facility in
investigating swamps and gravel-pits. The laboratory space in the Douglas Building
became exceedingly overcrowded, and a new laboratory was designed to be constructed
next year, adjacent to the Parliament Buildings.
The policy of carrying out testing so far as possible in the field, so that it is of
immediate value, has been carried out, and the following field laboratories were in
operation during the past year: Two compaction-testing laboratories to check on the soils
and compaction of the highways, three gravel-testing laboratories, two concrete-testing
laboratories, one soils-survey crew, and one gravel-prospector. The more advanced and
detailed testing was carried out in the Victoria laboratory and amounted to the following:
492 tests on soils, 104 tests on cement, 716 tests on concrete aggregates, and 75 design
mixes made for various concrete bridges and retaining-walls throughout the Province.
A total of 1,311 cylinders and cubes were cured and tested in compression, and 326 tests
were made on gravel for use in base course.
Paint-testing for traffic lines and so on required 187 tests on traffic paints and ten
tests on glass beads for reflectorizing the traffic paint.
This season saw the carrying-out of the recommended cures on the Front Street
slide at Quesnel, which has been causing difficulty since 1890, and on which many thousands of dollars have been spent fruitlessly in the past. So far the work has been very
effective, and we are sure that no further difficulty will exist at this point. Several other
slide areas were investigated and cures recommended to stabilize the areas.
In conclusion, it is felt that a large amount of work was covered by the Testing
Branch staff at the present time, but that only about 10 to 20 per cent of the work which
should have been covered was carried out. Plans are going ahead to expand this work
considerably in the following year, and it is hoped that within one or two years when
difficulties arise they will not be the result of lack of investigation and testing, as have so
many in the past.

REGIONAL REPORTS
REGION No. 1
(Alberni, Atlin (South), Burnaby, Chilliwack, Comox, Cowichan-Newcastle,
Delta, Dewdney, Esquimalt, Mackenzie, Nanaimo-Islands, New Westminster,
North Vancouver, Oak Bay, Prince Rupert, Saanich, Skeena (West), and
Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral Districts.)
D. D. Godfrey, Regional Highway Engineer, New Westminster
ALBERNI DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Maintenance in the district was made difficult by a very wet fall
followed by an extremely cold winter for this area, with much more snow than normal.
This made it impossible to haul gravel in the winter as in previous years, as all equipment
was fully engaged in sanding and snow-ploughing. Alternate freezing and thawing made
gravel-road conditions very poor and hard to maintain for several months. Every effort
was made to maintain the part of the Alberni summit in this district in passable condition
despite extremely severe and continual icy conditions, and at no time was traffic halted for
more than a few hours, and the crews worked hard and for long hours for weeks on end.
Unavailability of suitable operators in the district to employ for a night shift made this
impossible. A severe break-up caused extreme mud conditions on gravel roads, especially
in the Sproat Lake vicinity, and continual gravel-hauling brought conditions back to
normal as quickly as possible. Frost caused widespread but limited damage to paved
roads despite load restrictions in force.
Construction.—In reconstruction the Canadian Highway was reconstructed over
0.5 mile at the Cherry Creek Road intersection. This was 75 per cent completed in the
year. The Grandview Road was reconstructed over its length and paved. A section of
the Beaver Creek Road at MacKenzie Road intersection was reconstructed and paved.
Numerous subdivision roads were opened up throughout the area, and the Coleman Road
was opened up and improved for several miles. Resealing of several roads paved the year
before and recapping of others improved the wearing surface greatly. Considerable
gravelling and ditching were carried out under a special allocation for the Tofino-Ucluelet
Road, and a new shed was built there to accommodate the new grader.
ATLIN DISTRICT (SOUTH)
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance activities were carried out in the various areas
during the year.
In the Stewart area considerable assistance was given the Department by Western
Wood Products Corporation Limited in that they made their grader available for work
on the Bear River Road at no charge. This logging company is the principal user of the
road and the only operator of heavy vehicles.
Reconstruction and Improvement.—Moneys were provided for bolstering the Alice
Arm Wing Dam. Investigation showed that the funds would only be sufficient to start
the improvements and that the benefits to be received were somewhat dubious.
Authority was received to apply the Wing Dam funds against improvements of the
Stewart-Hyder Road. This work was carried out with good results, and a total of $7,500
was spent widening rock cuts.
Construction of a tote-road into the Bear River glacier was undertaken for the Mines
Department, as part of the Stewart-Cassiar Road; 4.5 miles were built through the
precipitous Bear Canyon for $20,000.
Snow-removal.—Snowfalls in the South Atlin area were considerably lighter than
had been experienced in recent years.  Fourteen feet fell at Stewart and 28 feet at Premier. REGIONAL REPORTS N 25
Clear cold weather presented another problem. Creeks were frozen from the bottom
up, and the ice welled up sufficiently to endanger a number of bridges in the vicinity of
Alice Arm.
BURNABY DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance. — Normal maintenance, consisting of ditching, patching, cleaning
catch-basins, shouldering, mowing, the painting of crosswalks, and centre-lining, was
carried out on all roads during the year.
The lighting on Kingsway was improved during the year by the Electrical Energy
Inspection Branch.
The shoulders on the Lougheed Highway between Boundary Road and Bainbridge
were improved as required by the addition of crushed material.
New Construction. — The Hastings-Barnet Highway was reconstructed from the
North Road westerly for a distance of 0.7 mile. This work is scheduled to be paved
during the coming year.
Snow-removal.—Heavy snow and icing conditions were experienced through the
winter months. Roads were kept in good condition by the use of equipment, chemicals,
and sand.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The new diversion through Westridge Subdivision on the
Hastings-Barnet Highway was paved with a hot mix for the total distance of 0.75 mile.
Buildings
The equipment-shed at Grandview Highway and Willingdon Avenue was completed
during the year.   Further grading is required to complete the yard area.
CHILLIWACK DISTRICT
Roads
New Construction.—In Huntingdon Townsite, Douglas Street was constructed from
First Street to International Avenue, affording a by-pass of the Customs Building for
local traffic.   Due to the late date of completion, the road was not paved.
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all main roads, and their
condition, with the exception of Trans-Canada Highway 8r, east of Chilliwack, and
Trans-Canada Highway 5-13, west of Cheam View, was generally satisfactory at the end
of the fiscal year. District forces did extensive patch seal-coating on these two sections,
but pavement failure was such that results were not too satisfactory, this failure being
aggravated by the severe winter with its alternate freezing and thawing.
A severe flash flood in early November had little effect on main roads, but resulted
in minor washouts and clogged drainage structures on some of the lesser roads.
Snow-removal.—The winter was a difficult one in that snowfall was heavy and that
there were several break-ups. Severe icing conditions existed at various times, particularly on Sumas Prairie and east of Rosedale. However, by frequent applications of sand
and grading off the ice, traffic was maintained with a minimum of inconvenience to the
travelling public.
Bituminous Surfacing.—In conjunction with the installation of curb and gutter in
Clearbrook, this section was paved from gutter to gutter, the length of the project being
0.3 mile.
Bridges
All bridges in the district were inspected and normal maintenance carried out.
Major repairs were made to the following bridges:   Starr Road Bridge (No. 5-9),
Anderson Creek (No. 5-78), and Cultus Creek (No. 5-31). N 26

trouble developed in April, and until May 4th the assistance of a tug was necessary.
The Rosedale ferry-landing was severely damaged on June 15th as a result of flood
conditions and closed to truck traffic. Emergency repairs enabled cars to continue
using the ferry until June 27th, when a section of road and landing was washed out.
When water had subsided sufficiently, equipment was moved to the upper landing, but
since it had not been used for some time and its condition was uncertain, only cars were
carried when operation was resumed on July 9th. When the river-level decreased, it
was possible to examine the landing and truck traffic was permitted.
Following the collapse of one span of the Mission Bridge, it was decided on July
24th to increase service to sixteen hours daily, thereby assisting the movement of traffic.
Immediately thereafter, service was again increased to afford twenty-four-hour service.
Decrease in river-level rendered the up-stream landing useless, but by this time a
piece of property down-stream had been leased, effective August 1st, and a landing
improvised. A large pontoon, formerly used in conjunction with the Ladner Ferry, was
utilized as a landing-float, a decked log ramp serving to connect the float with the
mainland.
Considerable difficulty was experienced in making up the additional crew, but,
thanks to the efforts of all concerned, service was maintained.
Trouble developed in the starboard motor, and on September 26th it was necessary
once again to obtain the assistance of a tug. However, late in October this motor was
replaced by a diesel.
Extreme high-water conditions prevailed on October 25th and 26th as the result
of a flash flood, this condition being repeated on November 4th and 5th. In consequence,
it was necessary to operate on a reduced schedule.
Severe icing conditions resulted in cessation of operations from December 18th to
21st and February 15th to 17th.
Another diesel engine has been purchased and is stored, pending a shut-down of a
week's duration.
Miscellaneous
A piped drainage system was installed in the main section of Huntingdon.
Maintenance crews maintained a vigilant watch on the Matsqui landing, constructed
as an emergency landing following the failure of the Mission Bridge. Since the river-level
is affected by tides as well as varying according to season, constant adjustment of the
height of the ramp was necessary.
Curb and gutter were installed, under the direction of the Surfacing Branch, on
both sides of Trans-Canada Highway 4r through the village of Clearbrook for a distance
of 0.3 mile.
COMOX DISTRICT
Roads
Islands and Northerly Isolated Areas.—The local, part-time, and monthly maintenance crews have kept the roads in satisfactory condition. There is hardly any Departmental equipment in the remote areas; therefore it is necessary to hire any available
equipment from logging or other private parties when occasion calls for such usage.
Maintenance.—General maintenance carried out on the rest of the roads.
Screened gravel was stock-piled at Cumberland, Errington, and Hammond Bay Pits.
Twenty-five thousand yards of % -inch crushed rock was stock-piled at Errington Pit by
R. & E. Contractors. Crushed gravel was stock-piled and also spread on Sayward Road
by our Departmental surfacing equipment set up at approximately Dam Bridge site. N 28 HIGHWAYS REPORT,   1955-56
Sayward Road came in for a lot of attention throughout the year; over-all condition
is good and new grader provided with continual operation.
During calendar year approximate quantities of materials used on all roads were
150,000 tons of gravel and sand and 2,500 tons of rock.
Construction.—Sayward Road was one of our major reconstruction jobs; $25,000
was spent on gravelling and approximately 16 miles of minor reconstruction.
New construction was approximately 1.7 miles in the Campbell River area, and
reconstruction of 23.4 miles on secondary roads in the Courtenay and Parksville areas.
We road-mixed approximately 14 miles of the most important secondary roads and
also surface-treated another 7 miles.
All our day-labour projects were taken well in hand with good organization,
efficiency, and supervisory ability.
Bridges
Big Qualicum Bridge was replaced and realigned by new precast concrete. Bridge
opened for traffic in December, 1955.
Little Qualicum Bridge is in process of being completed by new steel through-truss
on new alignment.
Nine bridges were replaced by culvert and fill, and nine bridges were partially
reconstructed.
General maintenance was carried out on other bridges throughout the district.
Over-all condition of bridges was good.
Snow-removal.—Snow was very light, but freezing temperatures were prolonged
and severe, causing havoc with roads.
Sanding and frost-damage repairs were carried on continually by crews on staggered-
hour shifts. The crews are to be commended for their esprit de corps. All roads were
kept open and in good shape throughout the year.
Ferries
The Denman, Quadra, and Hornby Island Ferries operated satisfactorily throughout
the year.
COWICHAN-NEWCASTLE DISTRICT
Roads.—Maintenance of all roads was kept up throughout the year, gravel-road
maintenance being especially difficult in the spring due to extreme ice and snow conditions
and a severe break-up caused by very low temperatures in November. Load restrictions
were in effect for a considerable period to combat the worst frost damage for many years
and equal to at least five normal winters. Serious flooding and numerous washouts were
experienced throughout the district in early November, especially at Youbou where an
estimated 9 inches of rain fell in 30 hours and washed out the Coon Creek and Abernethy
and Meade Creek Bridges. More extensive flooding than experienced for many years of
the Nanaimo and Chemainus Rivers resulted in the Trans-Canada and Cedar and Che-
mainus Highways being closed to traffic for several hours, with limited damage sustained.
In construction work the Yellow Point Road was reconstructed and paved over 2
miles, and the Barnes Road was improved and paved, also the Old Koksilah and Bench
Roads. Clearing and grubbing of right-of-way was done for the relocation of 1 mile of
the Cowichan Lake Road at Lake Cowichan, and the Keir Bridge was replaced by a
culvert. A large gravel-pit was purchased at Cassidy, and channel-clearing was carried out
on Haslam Creek in that vicinity. Resealing was carried out to several roads in the
Ladysmith and Cassidy areas. REGIONAL REPORTS
N 29
DELTA DISTRICT
Roads
New Construction.—Beaubien Road was completed, ready for paving, the 0.76-mile
section between Bergstrom Road and King George VI Highway being completed during
the present fiscal year.
Reconstruction.—The 1.4-mile section of Scott Road between the Beaubien Road
and the point where work ceased last year was completely reconstructed, as well as the
0.35-mile section in the vicinity of the B.C.E.R. crossing at Kennedy. This latter reconstruction, through minor relocation of the roadway, eliminated a dangerous reverse curve
at the crossing. Visibility was also greatly improved through excavation of a bank of earth
between the railway track and the highway.
A third lane for trucks and slow traffic was constructed at Latimer Hill on Trans-
Canada Highway 2r. This project was 0.7 mile in length. The job suffered a severe
set-back during a flash flood early in November, when the previously existing drainage
structures were overloaded and a considerable amount of new gravel fill was washed out.
Damage was, however, made good as soon as weather conditions permitted.
A truck lane 0.7 mile in length was constructed at Clayton Hill on Trans-Canada
Highway 2r.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The following surfacing projects were carried out:-—
(a) 1.4 miles of the reconstructed portion of Scott Road.
(b) Third lane, Latimer Hill, 5,000 square yards.
(c) 'Third lane, Clayton Hill, 5,000 square yards.
(d) In conjunction with the installation of curb and gutter, 0.4 mile was paved,
gutter to gutter, in the village of Aldergrove.
(e) In conjunction with the installation of curb and gutter, 0.7 mile was paved,
gutter to gutter, in the City of Langley.
(/)  Spot seal-coating was applied, by contract, to approximately  13,000
square yards of the surface of Trans-Canada Highway 3r between Biggar
Road and Aldergrove.
Maintenance. — Normal maintenance was carried out on all main roads.   The
bituminous-patching crew carried out an extensive programme of seal-coat patching,
particularly on Trans-Canada Highway 3r and King George VI Highway.    In consequence of the severe winter, the pavement on No. 5 Road, King George VI Highway, and
the Aldergrove-Bellingham Highway failed badly, and all available forces were for some
time engaged in excavating and back-filling soft spots.
Snow-removal.—Long periods of cold weather interspersed with mild weather were
experienced. Snowfall was relatively heavy. In more than one instance, snowfall conditions were such that our total equipment was unable to keep traffic moving on all the
hills at once. However, the delays were relatively short, and, in general, through generous
use of sand and snow-ploughing, good road conditions were maintained.
Bridges
All bridges in the district were inspected and maintained in the usual manner.
The outer pier supporting the Howe truss on Eburne Bridge No. 4 received numerous
blows from passing barges, necessitating minor closures while the pier and span were
jacked back into position.
Fraser Avenue Bridge No. 8 sustained severe damage when struck by a barge on
September 16th. The lower chord of the Howe truss, on the down-stream side, was
fractured by the impact and the upper chord later yielded. It was necessary to float the
span out and make necessary repairs. During this time the sway bracing on the bridge
was renewed and the sidewalk replaced. The bridge was reopened to traffic October 11th.
Campbell River Bridge No. 9 and Nicomekl Bridge No. 14 were redecked and a
non-skid surface applied. N 30 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
Ferries
Barnston Island Ferry.—Service was maintained throughout the year. The tug was
taken to Star Shipyard for annual inspection on October 20th and returned to service
November 11th. A tug was hired to avoid interruption in service. During the overhaul
it was found necessary to replace a considerable amount of rotted woodwork. A new
clutch was also installed.
The ferry-landing on the mainland side was reconstructed and widened. Piles were
found to be in satisfactory condition.
Ladner Ferry.—The "Delta Princess" was out of service on April 14th and 15th
for inspection and repairs. In view of erosion previously observed at the Ladner landing,
the " Stop " sign for traffic was moved back over Deas Island early in June. On July 7th
the long lead at Ladner landing collapsed as a result of erosion. This was replaced with a
pile cluster lead, and service was resumed on July 21st.
Miscellaneous
Curb and gutter was installed in the City of Langley and the village of Aldergrove,
under the direction of the Surfacing Branch, the lengths of projects being 0.7 and 0.4
mile respectively.
DEWDNEY DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all highways and local roads.
All gravel roads were kept in good driving condition by grader maintenance and by the
use of chemicals for dust-control.
Heavy rains in November caused considerable damage when overflowing streams cut
into their banks and caused washouts. The Coquitlam River Bridge east abutment was
scoured by the raging river, as were the river-banks in the area. Preventive measures were
undertaken during the winter to prevent a recurrence of this nature in the future. Dykes
were constructed on each side of the Coquitlam River, above the bridge, using river-bed
gravel. These dykes should be riprapped with suitable rock during the coming year.
Overflowing streams caused considerable damage to the Lougheed Highway east of
Deroche, and repairs to grade and pavement were made in that area.
The road through Woodhaven Subdivision was cleared of brush and debris. Kelly
Avenue and Marine Drive were improved in this area.
Due to the severe winter conditions, the application of considerable gravel to
unpaved roads in the district was necessary to repair frost damage. The Sunnyside Road
and the Rennie Road in Pitt Polder were the most severely damaged roads.
Considerable repairs to pavements were required as a result of frost action throughout the district.
Reconstruction.—The reconstruction of the Lougheed Highway east of Deroche was
continued, and 1.35 miles were completed to bring the new grade to the Harrison River.
Work commenced east of the Harrison River to Agassiz Mountain.
A drainage revision was constructed at the Albion slide on the Lougheed Highway.
The Vancouver-Coquitlam Highway was reconstructed from the North Road easterly for a distance of 0.6 mile and was made ready for pavement next year.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A total of 3.2 miles of hot mix was laid, under direction of
the Surfacing Branch by contract, east of Deroche to Harrison Bay on Lougheed Highway.
Snow-removal.—Heavy winter conditions were experienced throughout the district.
Roads were kept in good condition by the use of equipment, chemicals, and sand. REGIONAL REPORTS N 31
Bridges
All bridges in the district were maintained.
A new pile trestle bridge was constructed over the North Alouette River in Pitt
Meadows.
One span of the Mission C.P.R. Bridge collapsed on July 24th, 1955; as a result
the highway across this bridge was closed and a ferry service was introduced by the
Department. Repairs to this bridge, by the Canadian Pacific Railway, were not completed by the year-end.
The construction of the Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge continued throughout the year.
Work was commenced by the contractor on a new bridge on the Lougheed Highway
at Harrison River.
Work was commenced on the widening of the Pitt River Bridge on the Lougheed
Highway.
The following bridges were replaced by culvert and fill: Nicol Bridge, Hawkins-
Pickle Road; Pritchard Bridge, Sylvester Road; Payne Bridge, Sylvester Road; Legace
No. 1 Bridge, Stave Lake Road; Martin Bridge, Stave Lake Road; and Legace No. 2
Bridge, Stave Lake Road.
Buildings
The Mission equipment-shed was completed.
Ferries
The Mission-Matsqui Ferry, which was introduced to handle local traffic as a result
of the collapse of the Mission Bridge span, was operated for the balance of the year.
The ferry-landings were a continual maintenance problem due to the fluctuating
water-levels of the Fraser River.
DEWDNEY (EAST) DISTRICT
Maintenance.—A total of 9.85 miles of road on the south side of the Fraser River
was maintained throughout the year.
ESQUIMALT DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Unusual weather conditions created problems throughout the year.
A wet summer hampered a large programme of paving secondary and side roads.
A severe storm in November caused much damage. It washed out a large fill on the
Malahat Drive and disrupted traffic between Victoria and the northern part of the Island
for two days. The storm also destroyed a 1,100-foot bridge at Port Renfrew, a 340-foot
bridge at Jordan River, and five smaller structures. A small farming area at Port Renfrew
was flooded, and residents had to be evacuated by helicopter. Later in November,
temperatures fell to nearly zero and seriously damaged miles of old paving, especially in
the northern part of the district. Old road-mixed paving on the Island Highway, where
logging and limestone trucks comprise much of the traffic, were the worst affected.
Construction.—The district forces completed reconstruction on 5.3 miles and partially completed 9 miles of secondary and side roads. Crews paved 14 miles with road
mixes and seal-coated 5 miles; in addition, the Surfacing Branch paved 4 miles with
asphaltic concrete for the district.
District crews replaced an old King truss bridge on the West Coast road with a box
culvert and fill. The local bridge crew also participated in work in Atlin, Mackenzie,
Yale, and Cowichan-Newcastle Districts.
Esquimalt municipal crews reconstructed a mile of Admirals Road, with financial
assistance by the Department. N 32 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1955-56
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal was no problem; however, the increasing mileage
of surfacing added to the sanding problems. The tendency for the local paved roads to
glaze over with treacherous ice at night and in early morning required sanding operations
into March.
MACKENZIE DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Throughout the spring and summer most roads were in good condition and considerable gravelling was done. However, very heavy and continuous rains
in the fall made it very difficult to keep the roads in good condition. This was followed
by flooding conditions, which washed out Mission Bridge on the Sechelt Peninsula and
damaged several other bridges, along with scouring ditches and cutting the Gibsons-
Sechelt Highway in two places.
One of the most severe winters on record was experienced, and due to continual
freezing and thawing most roads were in poor condition.
Construction.—Reconstruction was carried out between Sechelt and Pender Harbour, 14 miles being 80 per cent completed.
On the Francis Peninsula Road 4.5 miles was completed, and on the Egmont Road
4 miles was 50 per cent completed.
Extensive work was carried out on the Bella Coola Road by widening and gravelling.
Paving. — Contracts were let and completed for the following paving: Gibsons
Landing to Port Mellon, 9.65 miles; Martin Valley Road (Ocean Falls), 1.4 miles;
Pender Harbour-Earls Landing, 10.4 miles; and Saltry Bay to end of pavement, 10.18
miles.   Seven-tenths of a mile was road-mixed on the Timber Lane Road.
Snow-removal. — Considerable snow-removal and sanding were necessary in the
northern section of the district. The remainder of the district was more or less normal
as far as snow-removal and sanding were concerned.
Bridges
Regular maintenance work was carried out on bridges. A temporary 100-foot-long
stringer bridge was constructed across Mission Creek to replace the one washed out during
the floods.   Extensive repairs were also carried out on Hastings Bridge.
NANAIMO-ISLANDS DISTRICT
Roads.—Constant maintenance was carried out on all roads, including the Gulf
Islands where the gradual change from part-time crews to full-time personnel gained
impetus to the point that practically all the islands, except the very small ones, have foremen and crews employed virtually full time. Severe icing and heavy snowfall for this
part of the Province was experienced, with the coldest weather recorded for very many
years on Saltspring Island. Resulting from this, frost action was severe on the gravel
roads, particularly on Saltspring Island and Gabriola Island, and if it had not been for
the extensive gravelling carried out in recent years on Saltspring, the effect on the roads
would have been much more severe than it was. Constant and heavy gravelling throughout the break-up period offset the effects to a great extent. Load restrictions were imposed
several times, and good enforcement of these on Saltspring saved serious damage to the
paved roads there.
The Fulford-Ganges Road was seal-coated and partly recapped to bring the surface
up to standard, and the road from Vesuvius Ferry wharf to Ganges was reconstructed and
paved. One mile of the Fulford-Ganges road was reconstructed at Fulford and gravelled.
The South Pender Road project was completed and gravelled. Work was done to improve
roads on Galiano Island on a special allocation, and several subdivision roads were REGIONAL REPORTS N 33
opened up in Nanaimo area. Over 7 miles of roads in Nanaimo area received a surface
asphalt treatment, about half of which were previously gravel-surfaced.
A bridge on the Jingle Pot Road was replaced by a large reinforced-concrete culvert,
and a large drainage-ditch was excavated in Harewood. A two-bay equipment and stores
shed was built in the Nanaimo yard.
Ferry service was maintained and improved throughout the year with the commencement of the Crofton-Vesuvius subsidized car ferry service and the service to Mayne,
Galiano, and North Pender Islands from Fulford Harbour.
NEW WESTMINSTER DISTRICT
Maintenance. — Normal maintenance was carried out on 6.1 miles of streets in
District Lot 172.
Snow-removal.—Heavy snow and icing conditions were experienced through the
winter months. Roads were kept in good condition by the use of equipment, chemicals,
and sand.
NORTH VANCOUVER DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Regular maintenance was carried out, cleaning ditches and culverts,
mowing, and cutting brush.   Considerable patching was done on pavements.
Quite serious flooding on the Seymour Creek and Capilano River occurred in November. Most creeks in West Vancouver overflowed, causing flooding conditions on Marine
Drive. Extensive river-bank protection work was done on both the Seymour and Capilano Rivers.
A temporary 200-foot pile trestle bridge was constructed across the Capilano River.
The Dollarton Highway was reconstructed for a distance of 3.85 miles. This section
was paved by contract.
Snow-ploughing and sanding was normal. The roads and pavement stood up very
well through a very severe winter.
OAK BAY DISTRICT
Oak Bay municipal crews reconstructed a portion of Secondary Highway No. 109b
(Beach Drive) with the Department's financial participation.
PRINCE RUPERT DISTRICT
Maintenance.—The roads were satisfactorily maintained in all areas, despite the
particularly wet summer season.
Maintenance was carried out on trails and walks at Dodge Cove and Port Essington.
Similar maintenance at other outlying communities was not possible because of the heavy
snows and had to be deferred.
Considerable bridge work remains to be done to bring the district bridges up to a
high standard of maintenance.
New Construction.—Work continued on the Masset-Port Clements Road on
Graham Island of the Queen Charlotte group. Grade roughed out the previous year was
completed and an additional 3 miles were finished, bringing the total finished mileage to 6.
In addition, 1 mile was roughed out at both ends of the road.
At the Port Clements end of the road, muskeg is being stripped and the roadway
must be back-filled with granular material to give a finished grade. No suitable borrow-
pit has been found to date.
Reconstruction and Improvements.—Third Avenue and Pot Roast Walk in Queen
Charlotte City were improved and widened by rock blasting and excavating, and by filling.
The excavated material from Third Avenue was utilized to widen Pot Roast Walk along
the foreshore. N 34
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56 REGIONAL REPORTS N 35
Snow-removal.—Extremely heavy snowfalls were experienced east of Prince Rupert,
with a total of 248 inches falling at the summit of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway,
20 miles from Prince Rupert. This snow fell during February and March. The highway
was closed for six days in the middle of February, when conditions became too heavy for
the local equipment.
Snowfall in the Queen Charlotte Islands was heavier than in previous years.
SAANICH DISTRICT
Maintenance.—The rapid growth of broom on the Patricia Bay Highway was controlled by basal spraying during the dormant period in late winter, because the large
amount of cultivated area in Saanich precluded the common types of chemical treatments.
Maintenance work in the district was otherwise routine. Snow-removal, likewise, was
routine.
Projects.—District crews reconstructed 2 miles of roads, laid 1 mile of road-mixed
paving, and seal-coated 11 miles during the year.
The Construction Branch constructed a 1-mile link on Lands End Road to provide
access for property-owners and to create a scenic drive around the tip of the Saanich
Peninsula.
SKEENA  (WEST)  DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Average service was maintained on all gravelled roads in the district
despite heavy summer rains.
In several locations reoccurring washouts were experienced, caused by flash flooding
of mountain streams.
Reconstruction and Improvements.—For the first time since the signing of the agreement with the Canadian National Railways in 1948, an attempt was made to establish
superelevation throughout that section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
adjacent to the C.N.R. tracks. Such development has not been possible sooner because
of the railway's requirement that all drainage be away from its road-bed. Cross-drainage
was provided by culverts, and further work will be required next year to complete this
undertaking.   Riprapping and widening were carried out in conjunction with this work.
The Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was widened at Mason Rock Bluffs,
approximately 10 miles east of Terrace. This work involved drilling and blasting solid
rock to put this narrow winding section on a new standardized location.
Sections along the Copper Bluffs and Edgar Bluffs, which had previously been
widened, were finished by gravelling to grade and establishing superelevation and drainage.
Snow-removal.—The maximum recorded snowfall in the Skeena (West) District was
at Exstew, 26 miles west of Terrace, where a total of 205 inches fell. Most of the snow
fell between mid-February and mid-March, and Highway No. 16 was closed by heavy
snow-slides and drifts for approximately six days.
Drifting conditions were experienced in the vicinity of Terrace throughout the winter.
New Garage Building
A three-bay equipment-shed was added to the existing garage in Terrace. The work
was carried out by Department forces, at an expenditure of $18,000.
VANCOUVER-POINT GREY DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Regular maintenance work was carried out during the year, repairing
and installing guard-rail, cleaning ditches, and patching.
Marine Drive was reconstructed and paved for a distance of 1.6 miles, and also 1.35
miles were recapped. N 36 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
Snow-ploughing and sanding were normal, although a cold winter was experienced.
Marine Drive stood up very well.

Arm, Similkameen, South Okanagan, and Yale Electoral Districts)
D. R. McLeod, Regional Highway Engineer, Kamloops
CARIBOO  (SOUTH)  DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance and Reconstruction.—Major improvements to grade, alignment, surface, and drainage were carried out on the Horsefly, Eagle Creek, Dog Creek, Beaver
Valley, 100 Mile-Roe Lake, and Chilcotin Roads.
Approximately 4 miles of the Tatlayoko Road and 2 miles of the Alexis Lake Road
were relocated. Almost 1 mile of the Chilcotin Road was raised an average of 4 feet at
two sections, Mile 156 and Mile 163, to avert flooding by the Kleena Kleene River.
Most extensive reconstruction work was carried out between Bell Creek and Gravel
Creek on the Horsefly Road, between Forest Grove and Bradley Creek on the Eagle Creek
Road, between the airport and Dog Creek on the Dog Creek Road, and for 3 miles north
of Bridge Creek on the 100 Mile-Roe Lake Road.
Work was again hampered by a wet season, with dirt-moving confined mostly to the
months of August and September. Maintenance grading and gravelling operations were
complicated by recurring rains and heavy lumber traffic.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall varied from 129 inches at Likely to 62 inches at
Alexis Creek, with an average of 104 inches for the district, an increase of 25 inches over
the previous year.
The total cost of snow-removal was up 58 per cent from the previous year and cost
per mile up 38 per cent.
A total of 1,186 miles were kept open.
Sand and Gravel
A total of 93,979 cubic yards of gravel and 2,203 cubic yards of sand were hauled
from forty-three pits throughout the district.
Bridges
Major repairs were carried out on nine bridges in the district, and one replacement
and one new construction were started.
KAMLOOPS DISTRICT
General Maintenance of Roads
Trans-Canada Highway.—The Trans-Canada Highway east from Kamloops to
Monte Creek Junction has been well maintained; burning of weeds, spraying, and
shoulder maintenance has kept the road in good repair. Some patching has had to be
done at Monte Creek due to frost-boils, one patch due to leakage of an irrigation crossing
at the Bostock Ranch, and a few minor mud-slides, due to irrigation leakage also where
highway is in cut.
On the Trans-Canada Highway west, considerable patching has been necessary west
of Cornwall Lodge and from Lemonade Flats to Cache Creek, and also from Ashcroft
Manor to Mantell. Ditches have had to be cleaned out on several occasions due to rock-
slides in the cuts along Kamloops Lake and the section from Mantell to Spences Bridge. REGIONAL REPORTS N 37
Construal road-shouldering, weed-burning, spraying, and mowing has kept this section in
good repair.
Unclassified Highways.—The North Thompson Highway has been well maintained
and is at present passable all the way to Albreda; it has been kept open up to Vavenby
all winter in spite of very heavy and continuous snowfall.
Most of the side-roads off the North Thompson Highway have been improved, and
considerable widening and gravelling have been done. There is, however, considerable
widening and gravelling to be done as yet. Cleaning the right-of-way to a good width
would alleviate the muddy condition of these roads in the spring break-up and lighten
the task of maintenance to a great extent.
The Kamloops-Merritt Road has been well kept in spite of heavy construction at
both ends.
The Paul Lake Road, Westsyde Road, and Lac le Jeune Road have been kept in
good repair; gravelling has been carried out in some sections.
The Copper Creek-Red Lake area has received some improvement and gravelling,
and also roads in the Bestwick area.   However, considerable work could be done yet.
Maintenance has been carried out in the Savona area, although considerable widening could be done on the Deadman-Vidette Road, and gravelling is needed in the
Mamit Lake area.
Road-mix asphalt was placed on the Hudson Bay Meadows Road. Plant-mix
asphalt was laid through the village of Louis Creek.
The Highland Valley Road has been widened and gravelled in places, but considerable work is needed at the east end where this road meets the Mamit Lake Road.
The Ashcroft crew has been keeping the roads taken over from the Lillooet District
passable, except during the heavy snowfall.
Snow-removal and winter sanding have been very heavy, and a considerable amount
of hired equipment was needed to keep the roads open this last winter.
General Construction and Reconstruction
North Thompson Area.—On North Thompson Highway No. 71, 7.5 miles of road
was reconstructed in the Vinsulla area. Severe winter weather halted all construction in
this area in December, to be opened up again in April. The Brookfield Bridge was completed and back-filled, and about 3 miles of road was raised and gravelled north of Mann
Creek (Blackwater).
On Clearwater Valley Road No. 32, 5 miles of road was reconstructed and gravelled.
Kamloops-Merritt Road No. 67.—Five miles of road was reconstructed from Willon
Ranch to McDonald's Farm, linking with previous reconstruction to the south.
Two miles were reconstructed along the Condeau Hill, which was all heavy rock
work and very slow going.
General.—Several minor reconstruction projects were carried out on side-roads.
Classified routes through the City of Kamloops were maintained on a share basis,
and also those through the Villages of North Kamloops and Ashcroft.
Bridges
All bridges in the district have been kept in good repair. The bridge at Brookfield
was completed, and eight bridges on the Back Valley Road were replaced.
The bridges at Hudson Bay Gulch, Springfield Creek, and two bridges at Ashcroft-
Ashcroft Manor have been eliminated, and also eight minor bridges at Cottonwood
Flats, improving the over-all condition of our roads in these areas.
Ferries
Routine maintenance on all ferries has been carried out in the district. N 38 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
LILLOOET DISTRICT
Roads
Major Construction.—Extensive work was carried out by day-labour on the Lytton—
Lillooet Road. Mile 2.0 to Mile 8.7 and Mile 30.5 to Mile 40.0 (16.2 miles) were
widened and improved. In addition, 10.3 miles of road-mix pavement was laid, 4.7 on
the south end and the remainder on the north end.
The road commenced last year from Moha along the Bridge River Canyon was completed and opened for traffic October 15th, 1955. The work of widening the Lillooet-
Moha section of this route to the Bridge River Valley was commenced by day-labour, and
approximately 8 miles of road was widened during the year. A considerable amount of
rock excavation at the Antoine Bluffs at Mile 18 was included in this work.
On the Pemberton Meadows Road, Mile 4.2 to Mile 5.2 was reconstructed on
revised alignment. The Ryan Creek Bridge, which is required to open this road for
through traffic, is to be constructed next year.
The Pemberton Portage Road was improved by widening and relocating from Mile
13.0 to Mile 14.2. Mile 4 to Mile 5 of the Lillooet-Pavilion Road was reconstructed
during the early spring. A short section of the Cariboo Highway was widened about
4 miles north of Cache Creek to reduce snow-drifting and to widen shoulders. Rock
cuts along the B.R.X. Canyon section of the Bridge River Road were widened. Culvert
material was purchased for Clinton Creek diversion and Cache Creek culvert enlargement.
Maintenance and Minor Betterments. — General improvements were made to the
Young Lake, Kelly Lake-Canoe Creek, Loon Lake, Texas Creek, Fountain Valley, and
Green Lake Roads. In addition, necessary maintenance was carried out on all important
roads.   Extensive hand-brushing was done during the summer on the Cariboo Highway.
Five hundred feet of 12-inch storm-drain was installed along the Cleveland Avenue
section of the Squamish Arterial Highway.
Floods on Cedar, Sebring, Jones, and Big Horn Creeks damaged or washed out the
small bridge crossings on the Bridge River Road and were repaired by district crews.
Loon Creek again washed out the Loon Lake Road in the canyon section, but by relocating to make a single creek crossing and by increasing the waterway of the culvert, the
road was quickly reopened. This work, which involved much rock excavation and a
diversion of the creek, is expected to eliminate future damage.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was 73 per cent greater than the average of the past four
years, and district crews had some difficulty after storms to reopen the road. During the
year the sanding of main roads was increased in amounts and frequency over past years.
Bridges
The Washout Bridge over the Mamquam River washed out in November and was
rebuilt. The structure consisted of two 60-foot steel-beam spans with timber deck and
timber trestle approaches on a 30-degree skew.
The Coy Bridge was rebuilt, consisting of five bays of timber trestle. The Hat Creek
No. 7 Bridge was rebuilt after a load failure. The opening of the Lillooet-Bralorne route
required the construction of a 60-foot King truss over the Yalakom River, a small bridge
over Hell Creek, and the strengthening of the Bridge River Bridge.
In addition to this work, the district bridge crew carried out maintenance to several
other bridges.
Ferries
Steel pontoons were purchased for High Bar Ferry to replace old wooden ones in the
coming year. Otherwise normal maintenance was carried out on the two reaction ferries
at Big Bar and High Bar and cable-car at Pavilion.
J REGIONAL REPORTS N  39
NORTH OKANAGAN DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads. Extensive gravelling was carried out on the Oyama, Tronson, Francis Avenue, Westside, Kamloops,
Anderson Subdivision, Comerons Point, Lumby-Mabel Lake, Whitevale, Creighton
Valley, Vernon-Slocan, Sugar Lake, Enderby-Mabel Lake, Mud Lake, Deep Creek, and
Grindrod-Sicamous Roads. Approximately 500 cubic yards of cold-mix asphalt and 700
cubic yards of hot plant-mix asphalt were used for patching and resurfacing. The
Vernon-Slocan Highway between Vernon and Lumby was centre-lined, as well as parts
of the Okanagan Highway.
Surfacing.—Twenty miles of plant-mix pavement, 0.8 mile of road mix, 0.6 mile of
dust-layer, and 5.1 miles of pulvi-mix were laid.
Reconstruction.—Contracts were let for three projects on the Okanagan Highway—
Oyama south (5.0 miles), Oyama north (4.2 miles), and Larkin to Armstrong (5.5
miles). Reconstruction of the Grindrod-Sicamous and Vernon-Slocan Highways was
continued by day-labour projects.
Snow-removal.—Snow was much heavier than normal and the winter was much
earlier than usual. Snow-removal costs were higher than normal. All major roads were
kept open all winter.
Bridges
Four timber bridges were rebuilt, twelve were repaired, and five were replaced by
culvert and fill.
REVELSTOKE DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—The frost damage in the spring of 1955 was one of the heaviest on
record. The snow had all cleared away during the month of February when a prolonged
period of sub-zero weather occurred. The frost went straight in and the damage was
unusually great. In particular, the Trans-Canada Highway for 1 mile east of Sicamous
and all the feeder roads in the Sicamous area were badly affected. The early maintenance
programme was set aside, and from 1 to 2 feet of real coarse gravel was poured on to all
sections as required.
The Big Bend Highway was opened later than usual because of bridge troubles in
the Golden area and was generally in better than normal shape because of the fact that
buses and heavy trucks could not operate under the bridge limitations. Unfortunately,
calcium chloride ordered for the first of August was not received until the end of the
month. By that time the road was extremely dry and dusty. Brushing continued on
the Big Bend Highway, and the road is now fairly well cleared out to Mile 65.
Brush-control by the use of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T was continued on the Trans-Canada
Highway west and for 40 miles up the Big Bend Highway. The Revelstoke-Arrowhead
Road and some feeder roads were given the same treatment.
On June 22nd a heavy wind-storm of hurricane force swept through the area, causing thousands of shallow-rooted trees to fall. This was heaviest in the Revelstoke-Arrowhead area, and in some cases before the trees could be cleared the high-water floods made
the roads impassable.
Damage by floods was very heavy and will be dealt with in another section of this
Report. Generally speaking, all roads, once repaired after the frost and flood damage,
were maintained in good shape.
Construction and Reconstruction.—There were four major contracts on the Big
Bend Highway under construction during the past season. N 40 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
The Clanwilliam Bridge and its approaches, known as Project No. 549, was not
completed.
Project No. 559 for the approaches to the overhead crossing at Three Valley east
was very nearly completed.
Project No. 556 at Three Valley Lake, a very heavy rock project, was practically
completed, except for the surfacing material and guard-rails.
Under new construction, district forces worked on an extension of the Goldstream
Road for the Forestry and Mines Departments. The grading of a new arterial highway
through Revelstoke was completed.
Under the reconstruction programme, Departmental forces completed a very heavy
rock cut on Mara Lake at Mile 3. This project was completed to a 40-foot top. but,
unfortunately, during the winter months some 10 feet of the fill slid into the lake, which
is extremely deep at this point.
All right-of-way negotiations and clearing, together with the greatest part of the
grubbing, were completed for the reconstruction of the Mara Lake Road from Mile 0 to
Mile 7.8.   Engineering plans are in hand for this work.
The road from Beaton to Cambourne was widened for drainage, and gravelled and
very much improved, under a combination work order of funds supplied by the Department of Highways, the Department of Mines, and the Sunshine Lardeau Mines.
During the winter months the rock crew worked on reconstruction from Mile 10 to
Mile 11 of the Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road. This was widened to a 36-foot standard.
This rock crew was loaned to the Salmon Arm District for the summer months.
Hard Surfacing.-—Road mix was placed on the new School Road in Revelstoke and
on some suburb streets. Third Street from Charles Street west around the Court-house
was hard-surfaced.
The Trans-Canada Highway had road mix on the approaches to the Malakwa
Bridge, and the access road to the railroad crossing at Malakwa from the Trans-Canada
Highway was road-mixed.
All this pavement was of good quality. Unfortunately, further work in the Sicamous
area on Sicamous streets was done during a rainy, cold period and was not of the same
calibre. Considerable difficulty was experienced in the paving programme, in maintaining
temperatures in alphalt-cars which were uninsulated due to the heavy demand for railway
cars of this type at this time.
Flood Damage.—The spring run-off was very fast and very heavy. During the last
two weeks of June, washouts occurred at Miles 22, 30, 46, and 49 on the Big Bend Highway. Mile 5 to Mile 6 on the Arrowhead-Revelstoke Road was under water for some
time, and some sections of the Sicamous streets were flooded. The Solsqua-Cambie Road
was under water for a considerable distance, and a bad washout occurred at Summit Lake.
Part of the Mara Lake Road 2 miles south was washed away by wave action when the
lake was high. Fortunately, the flood conditions in the Eagle River Valley and the
Columbia Valley did not coincide, and traffic was maintained without too much delay.
All flood damage was repaired under the Flood Emergency Act, and most of the Department's equipment was required for this work for the entire summer.
Ferries
Maintaining service on the Twelve and Twenty-four Mile Ferries was extremely
difficult throughout this year. High-water conditions during June necessitated confining
the operations of the ferry to daylight hours because of driftwood, and during the winter
months icing conditions in the two channels caused a number of short delays, with the
exceptions of one period of three days when the Twenty-four Mile Ferry was completely
out of action.
On November 8th the Department of Highways took over the M.V. "Arrow Park"
and started a daily schedule from Beaton to Arrowhead-Nakusp and return.    This REGIONAL REPORTS

schedule was extremely difficult to maintain because of the severe winter, and the ship
was finally put out of condition due to ice damage and a substitute service used for a
month or two. At one period an aircraft was used to ferry stranded residents of the Beaton
area and transport mail and urgent supplies.
From July 4th to October 31st a diesel tug and pontoon barge was used on the Three
Valley Lake to provide service around the construction work in progress. This barge
carried as many as 200 to 250 cars in one day, but it was still unable to handle the traffic
without delays, averaging four hours. As the work progressed, the ferry operated only
during the daylight hours when the contractors were working, and traffic used the road
at night.
Bridges
A bridge 2 miles south of Sicamous on the Mara Lake Road was washed out, and a
detour bridge built to maintain traffic. The district bridge crew constructed the abutments for a permanent bridge at this point during the winter months.
The bridge crew was loaned to the Golden District until August 12th to complete
replacement trestle bridges on the Big Bend Highway in that district.
La Forme Creek Bridge suffered severe damage when a post from one bent fell away.
Repairs to this bridge were completed in short time.
All bridges in the district were maintained as well as possible.
Snow Service
Snow and winter conditions came much earlier than usual, and the winter was the
heaviest in history. The snowfall ranged from 172 inches at Sicamous to 261 inches at
Revelstoke, 336 to 350 inches just outside of the city, and 368 inches at Trout Lake.
Snow-ploughs were required late in the month of March. During the month of January
a Sicard rotary plough was obtained from the Hope-Princeton Highway and a Richardson rotary plough on a D-6 tractor from Kamloops to help maintain service. Had these
machines been available at the beginning of the snow season, we might have saved their
entire capital cost before the year was out, inasmuch as we would not have had to handle
the snow a second time, and sometimes even a third and fourth time, in the snow banks
which built up.
Surveys
During the year, engineering surveys were continued on the Revelstoke—Arrowhead
Road and the Mara Lake Road in anticipation of further project work. Reconnaissance
surveys were made of the area between Twelve and Twenty-four Mile Ferries on the east
bank of the Columbia River and between Beaton and Galena Bay on the North-east Arm
of the Arrow Lakes. To substantiate the report made on these surveys, maps compiled
from aerial photographs were submitted.
SALMON ARM DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance. — Normal maintenance was carried out satisfactorily on all roads
throughout the year. On a number of the side-roads, minor improvements, such as
ditching, widening, and gravelling, were undertaken. Wooden culverts were replaced
with metal pipe.   Little or no tax work was authorized as in past years.
Reconstruction.—On Trans-Canada Highway Project No. 612 (contract), from
Mile 388.31 to Mile 397.08 (8.73 miles), Sorrento-Balmoral section, work commenced
in May, 1955, and was 80 per cent completed by end of year.
On Trans-Canada Highway Project No. 477 (contract), Mile 418.88 to Mile 425.11
(6.23 miles), Canoe-Annis section, work commenced May, 1954, and was 100 per cent
completed, except guard-rails. REGIONAL REPORTS N 43
On Trans-Canada Highway Project No. 551 (contract), Mile 425.11 to Mile 430.22
(5.04 miles), Annis-Sicamous section, work commenced in April, 1955, and was 50 per
cent completed by end of the year.
The following mentioned side-roads were realigned and constructed by our own
forces and all work 100 per cent completed: Salmon River (No. 360), Mile 5.0 to Mile
9.0 (4.0 miles); Canoe Point (No. 501), 5.0 miles; Tappen Valley (No. 33), Mile 2.0
to Mile 2.6 (0.6 mile); Yankee Flats (No. 363), Mile 0.5 to Mile 1.0 (0.5 mile);
Holding (No. 451), Mile 5.1 to Mile 5.6 (0.5 mile); Tappen-Notch Hill (No. 29), 0.8
mile; Berry (No. 242), 0.5 mile.
Squilax-Anglemont (No. 446), Mile 0.0 to Mile 11.2 (11.2 miles), commenced in
July, 1955, was 80 per cent completed.
One and one-half miles of Chase streets and 1.5 miles of Sicamous streets (3.0
miles) were shaped, gravelled, and paved with a bituminous road mix.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Hot plant-mix pavement was laid on recently reconstructed
sections of the Trans-Canada Highway—Balmoral-Tappen-Rock Bluff, Mile 397.08 to
Mile 407.62 (10.59 miles), and Larch Hill to Canoe, Mile 414.66 to Mile 418.88 (4.22
miles). Also, Balmoral-Tappen, Mile 397.08 to Mile 402.69 (5.6 miles), was base-
processed.
Snow-removal.—The average total snowfall on lower levels for the district, which
commenced November 3rd and ended March 17th, was 111 inches. All roads were
kept open.
Bridges
Two bridges were renewed. Repairs were made to nineteen bridges. Three bridges
were replaced with culvert and fill.
Ferries
Ferry service between Sorrento and Scotch Creek operated satisfactorily during
the year.
SIMILKAMEEN DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Regular maintenance was carried on in the district. The policy of
grading off the shoulders on the main highway was continued. Minor betterments on the
secondary roads were undertaken. Bituminous patching on all paved roads was carried
out. Some 30 miles of the Hope-Princeton Highway was seal-coated by contract. All
the bridge decks on the Hope-Princeton Highway were bituminous-surfaced by district
forces. The winter was severe on the roads, and considerable frost damage resulted.
Major repairs were necessary over numerous sections.
A total of 13.7 miles of orchard and district roads were oiled.
Reconstruction.—Four and one-half miles of road was reconstructed between Okanagan Falls and Vaseux Lake.
An additional 6 miles of highway was reconstructed on the Merritt-Princeton
Highway.
A half-mile of secondary highway known as Lakeshore Drive was completed at
Osoyoos.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was much greater than normal throughout the area, but
no serious difficulties were encountered.
Bridges
One steel-stringer structure was built on the Green Mountain Road.
The construction of the Ellis Creek Bridge in Penticton was started. N 44 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
Two bridges were replaced by culvert. Miscellaneous repairs and maintenance to
bridges and guard-rails were carried on by the district forces.
Several small wooden bridge structures were placed on the Indian Reserve Road
near Chopaka.
SOUTH OKANAGAN DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Improvements were carried out in alignment of local roads, and the
policy of widening while grading was instituted. Particular attention was paid to drainage,
with several carloads of culvert pipe being used for that purpose. Many local roads were
regravelled, and a weed-control programme was carried out. Two patching crews were
employed continuously patching paved roads, some of which are deteriorating rapidly.
Reconstruction. — A 1-mile extension of the Lakeshore Road was constructed.
Numerous corners were widened and alignment generally improved on the Joe Rich Road
by day-labour.
A 7-mile section of the Okanagan Highway from Trout Creek northerly was completed by contract and is a vast improvement over the old road.
A contract for 9.46 miles of the Okanagan Highway from Peachland south was
awarded. Work was well advanced at the end of the fiscal year.
Surfacing.—Eight miles of orchard roads were paved with asphalt road mix by
district forces. The 7 miles of Okanagan Highway from Trout Creek north was paved by
contract, and the old arterial highway through the Municipality of Summerland was
recapped prior to its being reclassified.
Snow-removal.—One of the worst winters of the past century was experienced, but
despite this all roads were kept open and sanded, with very little inconvenience being
caused to the travelling public.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on all bridges in the district, and two 20-foot
precast concrete bridges were constructed.
Ferries
Traffic increased over 1954-55 by approximately 12 per cent. The two new ferry
docks were completed and put in operation, greatly increasing the efficiency of the ferry
service. Barring a few minor tie-ups, traffic was moved in a speedy and orderly manner
during the summer rush.
YALE DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Extensive gravelling was carried out on side-roads. Brushing and
weed-control at the end of the third year of concentrated application have now achieved
excellent control of growth on main highway right-of-ways. The holding of old pavements
on the Fraser Canyon again required heavy work and expenditure. District graders
maintained gravel roads continuously, although with little effect for a two-month period
during the summer.
Major Reconstruction and Improvements.—Reconstruction of the 1.9-mile Yale
section of the Trans-Canada Highway, 75 per cent completed last year, is now fully
completed. The 2.50-mile section from Salkel Flats to Nine Mile (Mile 212.83 to Mile
215.33) in the Fraser Canyon was begun, and the adjacent Nine Mile-Boothroyd contract was let.
Mile 51 to Mile 56 of the Merritt-Princeton Highway and Mile 23.5 to Mile 28 of
the Merritt-Kamloops Highway was reconstructed by the district, as well as Mile 29 to
Mile 32.75 of the Merritt-Spences Bridge Road. REGIONAL REPORTS N  45
More reconstruction was carried out on the Chaumox Road near North Bend.
The crushing programme for the 1956-57 preparation and paving of completed
sections of the Kamloops and Princeton Roads was begun.
Eight and seven-tenths miles of the Lytton-Lillooet Road was reconstructed from
Lytton.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The district paved 1.3 miles of the Othello Road and Mile
0 to Mile 5 of the Lytton-Lillooet Road.
From Mile 28 to Mile 36 of the Merritt-Kamloops Road was paved with plant mix
by contract.
Buildings
A five-bay equipment-shed and garage was constructed at the new yard in Boston
Bar, and an oil-house was built at Lytton to complete the facilities in that yard. Sheds
at Coalmont were painted.
Bridges
Two bridges were rebuilt on the Tulameen River Road, one on the Mill Creek Road,
and one on the Mamit Lake Road, while seven bridges were replaced by culvert and fill
to complete the bridge elimination programme in Yale District, begun several years ago
by A. J. Bowering, Assistant Chief Engineer. Several bridges were redecked, and old
structures in the Fraser Canyon were inspected and repaired constantly to avert disaster
by uncontrolled overloads.
Ferries
Service of the North Bend Aerial Ferry was maintained without interruption
throughout the year. The Lytton Ferry was tied up for short periods during severe icing
conditions last winter and for several days due to high water the past spring.
A small cable equipped with red aircraft-warning pennants was suspended above the
main Lytton Ferry cable during the year as a safety measure. In addition, other progressive repairs and improvements were made to both the Lytton and North Bend Ferries.

COLUMBIA DISTRICT
Roads
General 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 Trans-Canada Highway, Big Bend section, considerable improvements
were imposed in the form of placing culverts in hithertofore undrained locations and
replacing 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 5 miles was regravelled. At the result of chemical treatment and excessive
rains, this road was dust-free through the year.
The Golden-Leanchoil section of the Trans-Canada Highway required constant
attention in that slide conditions were frequent. 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.  REGIONAL REPORTS N 47
Continuous maintenance in the form of grading and ditching became necessary along
the Kootenay-Columbia Highway. Considerable culvert replacement was required due to
old wooden culverts collapsing and plugging. Considerable regravelling was undertaken,
shoulder widening from Mile 0 to Mile 15, slipping and sluffing of road shoulders built
up, and patches on black-top. Minor improvements were undertaken on sections that
were narrow and sharp curves eliminated.
A late spring break-up was encountered, with a fast run-off of local snow which
caused some flooding on roads. Spring break-up was severe and condition of roads was
bad, Kootenay-Columbia Highway particularly. Considerable funds were spent to keep
roads passable.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Kicking Horse Canyon section, Trans-Canada
Highway, from Mile 9 to Park Bridge was in progress by contract throughout the year.
Mile 61.6 to Mile 57.75 of Kootenay- Columbia Highway also was done by contract.
District forces undertook and satisfactorily completed the reconstruction of Kootenay-Columbia Highway from Mile 72.2 to Mile 75.6, Athalmer Junction to Stoddart
Creek, and also partially completed reconstruction from Mile 72.2 to Mile 71.3. Approaches to Dutch Creek Bridge were completed.
Straightening, widening, and gravelling were done on Arterial Highway No. 189r
in the village of Invermere.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A total of 6.32 miles of reconstructed road on Kootenay-
Columbia Highway was pulvimixed, also 0.15 mile was road-mixed.
Snow-removal. — Snowfall was heavy in all sections of the District, being above
average in Golden area; total fall was 138 inches, and in Athalmer area there was 37Va
inches. From Radium to south boundary of district, icing conditions on roads were very
bad due to chinook winds and rain after each snowfall. Crews worked on shifts to try
to keep conditions safe for traffic.
Bridges
Minor repairs and inspection of all bridges were undertaken in the district. Reconstruction of Falls No. 240, Middle River No. 257, and Parson No. 226 Bridges was completed, and partial reconstruction of Sullivan No. 255 and Shell No. 248 Bridges. Some
progress was made on Yoho Bridge No. 212 by contractor. Dutch Creek Bridge No. 35
was completed.
CRANBROOK DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—All roads in the district were maintained.
Frost damage was very severe on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, except
the reconstructed sections, between Goatfell and Green Bay, and on the Kingsgate-
Curzon Road.
Reconstruction. — Reconstruction of 3.5 miles of the Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway from Yahk east was completed by day-labour.
The Kingsgate-Curzon Road and the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway from
Goatfell to Yahk is being reconstructed by contract.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal was very heavy, and icing conditions were so bad
that continual sanding was required on the entire lengths of all main roads.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A total of 2.8 miles of gravelled roads were given a surface
treatment by the Department's pulvimixers.
Bridges
A log-stringer trestle was constructed by our district forces over the Kootenay River
immediately south of the C.P.R. Bridge at Wasa. Traffic previously used the railway
bridge. N 48 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
McConnell Bridge No. 31 on the Gold Creek Road was replaced by a pile trestle.
Replacement of St. Mary Slough No. 77 and St. Mary River No. 78 by 60-foot King
trusses was commenced but not completed by the end of the year.
Wallinger Avenue Bridge No. 185 on the arterial highway in the City of Kimberley
was widened.
Moyie River Bridges Nos. 3 and 4 at Curzon were replaced with steel and concrete
structures by contract.
FERNIE DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance, including ditching and culverting, was carried
out on all roads in the district. The Elk Valley Road was widened, straightened, and
gravelled for a distance of 8 miles and given a course of screened gravel. Mansfield
Road was widened and regraded and given a course of pit-run gravel. A mile of Highway
No. 93, north of Waldo, was realigned and regraded, and 6 miles of this section was
given a course of fine gravel.
A short relocation on the Colvalli Road eliminated a grade which produced a difficulty in winter.
Three miles of the Kootenay-Columbia Highway north of Wardner was widened.
Shoulders of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway between Michel and Crowsnest
were widened and corners cut out for vision. At the same time, visual obstruction at the
C.P.R. crossing north of Michel was removed.
Crushed gravel was placed on 6 miles of the Kootenay-Columbia Highway between
Wasa and Fort Steele.
Paving.—The road to Sparwood School was gravelled, graded, and a field-mix
pavement laid.
Snow-removal.—Heavy icing conditions made it difficult to provide safe running
surfaces, and large quantities of sand were required. Lack of warm rains at any time
during the winter left all the snow in windrows, increasing the cost of snow-removal.
Bridges
Three concrete deck panels were replaced in the Old Town Bridge.
Red Creek Bridge and Roos Bridge were completely replaced. Running ribbons
were placed on the decks of Hayne Bridge, Woodland Bridge, Fraser Bridge, Ferguson
Bridge, Gradey Bridge, and Canyon Creek Bridge.
Routine maintenance was carried out on all other bridges in the district.
River Protection Work
Additional rock was placed at Mile 565 on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.
GRAND FORKS-GREENWOOD DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Gravelling, grading, weed-control, and ditching were carried out
continually throughout the season.
Reconstruction.—Four miles of the portion of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway known as the Cascades were widened by removing rock corners, resulting in a
reasonably wide road.   This was 100 per cent completed.
The remaining 5 miles from Rock Creek to Westbridge on the Kettle River Main
Road were widened and gravelled and paved.   Project was 98 per cent completed.
Reconstruction of the Kettle River West Road was started, with widening and
straightening of 3 miles immediately north of Westbridge and 5 miles between Beaverdell
and Carmi. These projects were 50 per cent completed. REGIONAL REPORTS N 49
Gravelling and some widening were carried out on the Carmi-McCulloch Road,
which was 100 per cent completed.
Extensive widening, gravelling, and rock work were done on the Grand Forks-
Franklin Road, resulting in a 26-foot road from Grand Forks to Lynch Creek. This was
98 per cent completed.
Minor reconstruction (widening, gravelling, grading, and rock work) was carried out
on the valley roads south, Christina Lake east, Norwegian Creek, Keno, Hartford, and
Phoenix Roads.   These projects were completed 100 per cent.
Construction.—Construction was started on the new Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway from the Overhead Bridge, 5 miles east of Grand Forks, to Blueberry Creek,
with two contracts being let to P. F. Law Construction Company—one contract (Project
No. 614) from the Overhead to Christina Creek and another (Project No. 668) from
Christina Creek to McCrae Creek (Lot 2827 (S.), Similkameen Division of Yale District).
Project No. 614 was 80 per cent completed, and Project No. 668 was 10 per cent
completed.
Surfacing.—Five miles of the Kettle River Main Road was surfaced with a bituminous road mix.   This paving was 95 per cent completed.
One mile from Southern Trans-Provincial Highway to Midway Customs was paved
and 100 per cent completed.
Snow-removal.—All roads in use were kept open all winter. No camp was established at Santa Rosa summit this year, and it was found to be just as convenient and more
economical to keep this 14.5 miles of Southern Trans-Provincial Highway open without
it, despite an abnormally heavy snowfall.
Bridges
Two bridges were eliminated at Lynch Creek by a multi-plate arch and three overflow culverts. This was found quite satisfactory, being the first year that this road did
not wash out.
Eight other bridges were replaced with 304 feet of corrugated-iron culvert, 30 feet
of 16-feet 7-inch by 10-feet 1-inch multi-plate arch pipe, and 30 feet of 8- by 8-foot
timber (6 by 6 inches). Other bridges were repaired and maintained as listed in the
Bridge Schedule P.W. 65.
KASLO-SLOCAN DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—The highways in the Kaslo-Slocan District were kept in good condition throughout the year. Due to severe flood conditions, roads throughout the district
were seriously damaged during the latter part of June, thereby delaying general maintenance and road-construction projects. The Slocan-Arrow Lakes Highway was closed
for a few days in June due to washouts caused by the spring floods and again during
March due to washouts caused by the spring break-up. Apart from that, no disruption to
traffic was experienced.
Major Programme.—On the Slocan-Arrow Lakes Highway the Appledale-Perry
Siding section was reconstructed by the Department forces for a distance of 1.3 miles to
a 34-foot subgrade standard. Construction entailed moving approximately 18,000 cubic
yards of dirt, installing culverts and fencing, and hauling pit-run gravel.
The Slocan Park-Appledale and Lemon Creek sections received approximately
18,000 yards of %-inch crushed gravel in preparation for pulvimixing.
On the Monashee section, approximately 6 miles of this highway was slashed and
reconstructed to 34-foot subgrade standard. Three miles of the section was gravelled.
On the Slocan-Arrow Lakes Highway, the Cape Horn section was widened and
straightened in solid rock, improving road for a distance of approximately 2 miles. N 50 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
On the Kaslo-Nelson Highway, one-half mile, Woodbury Hill, and one-half mile,
Cedar Creek-Ainsworth, were reconstructed in heavy rock. Road constructed to 34-foot
standard.
Approximately one-half mile of the Kaslo-Lardeau Highway was widened in
heavy rock.
Dust-laying Operations.—Calcium chloride was placed between New Denver and
Silverton for a total of 2Vi miles, also through Passmore, Vallican, Winlaw, Appledale,
Perry Siding, Rosebery, Hill's, Arrow Park (east and west), Burton, Fauquier, Needles,
and Edgewood in varying applications from 1,000 feet to one-quarter of a 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 boundary of
Mirror Lake, and also through Fletcher Creek Flats, Woodbury Creek, and Coffee Creek
sections, as well as Shutty Bench.
Inonoaklin Valley Road.—Approximately 15,500 cubic yards of gravel was spread.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal equipment was kept busy from November to the
end of March. An unusually heavy snowfall was experienced in all parts of the district.
No slides hampered traffic on main highways. Considerable sanding was done on all
hills.
Bridges
One major structure was erected, which was over the Duncan River at Lardeau,
consisting of 260 feet of pile bent and one 95-foot Howe truss. This bridge was still
under contruction at the year's end.
Meadow Creek Bridge was completed during the year.
The crew was kept busy on deck replacement and general maintenance and repairing
damage caused by spring floods.
Bridge Elimination.—Three bridges were eliminated by culvert and fill, four by
construction of new roads to avoid crossing creek, and one along Slocan Lake by concrete
retaining-wall.
Ferries
Ferries at Needles and Arrow Park were kept in operation without interruption,
except for needed changing of cable and motor assemblies. A new steel-hull ferry was
installed at Arrow Park.
Garages
A complete new heating plant was installed in the New Denver garage.
NELSON-CRESTON DISTRICT
Roads
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Nelson-Nelway Highway was commenced at
the International Border and continued north for a distance of 2 miles. This work
eliminates the hazardous Black Bluffs section and will complete the Nelson-Nelway
Highway.
Harrop-Procter Road reconstruction commenced in the early fall, but only 2 miles
of the intended 5 miles were completed, due to early winter conditions.
Creston-Porthill Highway from Archibald's Hill south for 2.8 miles was reconstructed to standard.   The remaining 3.3 miles are to be completed for paving in 1956.
Realignment and construction of the Vernon-South Slocan Highway continued for
2 miles north from the previous year's work. This project involved large dirt quantities,
with the work being done by scrapers.
Blasting operations were continued on the Riondel Road in late fall, bringing the
widening of this road to completion. REGIONAL REPORTS N 51
Widening of narrow sections and elimination of blind corners were done on the
Nelson-Kaslo Road.
Approaches were constructed to the new bridge over Kokanee Creek on the Nelson-
Balfour section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.
An access road was constructed from Glade to a point 1 mile down-stream where the
new Glade Ferry services property across the Kootenay River.
Maintenance.—There was an increase in maintenance over previous years, with
stress being on replacement of wooden culverts, slashing, ditching, gravelling, and patching
of bituminous pavement.
Normal maintenance was done on all roads; that is, regular grading, mowing, etc.,
and dust elimination.
A regular programme was commenced in the Creston area whereby several of the
fruit roads receive gravel each year, with a view to paving a portion of these roads at
a future date and eventually having a network of paved roads through the fruit-producing
areas.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The remaining 4 miles on the Kuskanook-Wynndel section
of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway was paved, thus completing the surfacing of
the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway in the Nelson-Creston District.
The Kokanee bridge approaches were road-mixed by Department forces.
Snow-removal.—An extreme winter of heavy ice and snow conditions forced an
almost continuous twenty-four-hour patrol on all roads, starting in November and continuing until late March.
Maximum snowfall recorded at Apex was 254 inches, which necessitated the introduction of a snow-blower to ensure movement of traffic.
Flood Protection
Great damage was done by flash floods in June, necessitating considerable channel
work and extensive work in numerous creeks and repairs to bridges.
Channels were cleared and flood potential minimized in the following creeks:
Duhamel, Cottonwood, Hall, Salmo, Crawford, La France, Goat, Corn, Arrow, Boulder,
and Lockhart.
Bridges
Considerable damage was done to the bridges over the smaller creeks by spring
floods, necessitating many replacements and repairs.
The Sanca Bridge was washed away and replaced by a Bailey bridge until a new
bridge can be built.
Other bridges washed out and subsequently replaced included Gray Creek, Lockhart,
and Narrows.
Bridges which were severely damaged by flood and subsequently repaired included
Sheep Creek No. 1, Sheep Creek No. 2, Boulder Creek, Goat River No. 2, and La France
Creek.
The old wooden Kokanee Bridge recently replaced was dismantled and transported
to the Lardeau for re-erection over the Duncan River.
Ferries
A new dry-dock was built in the C.P.R. shipyard at Nelson and after launching was
towed to Sunshine Bay for permanent anchorage.
Immediate use was made of this new dry-dock to raise the M.V. "Anscomb " for
hull inspection, overhaul, and painting.
All other ferries were painted and maintained in good order.
A new cable-ferry was installed at Glade to provide service to farms across the
Kootenay River. N 52

ROSSLAND-TRAIL DISTRICT
Roads
Construction and Reconstruction.—Work which was commenced on the Waneta
Highway reconstruction between the Columbia Gardens Airport and the Trail-Salmo
Highway last year was completed in October, 1955. This work was carried out by day-
labour and hired equipment, and the highway is now constructed to standard width and
grade.
On the west end of the Rossland Arterial, one-half mile was reconstructed and
widened to standard width and grade. Prior to reconstruction this was a narrow, winding,
and dangerous section of highway. A 390-foot-long bin wall was installed to maintain
a service road for properties along the highway.
The reconstruction of the Genelle Bluffs section of the Castlegar—Trail Highway was
undertaken by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada, Limited, in
conjunction with Departmental forces. Reconstruction extended over approximately
1 mile of highway. The participation of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company
was necessitated because of the proximity of its transmission-lines from the Kootenay
River power plants. The work involved widening and regrading and the building of rock
walls.   Approximately 80 per cent of the work was completed by March 31st, 1956.
Minor Projects.—Minor projects undertaken throughout the year were as follows:—
A number of bad rock corners and switchbacks on the Rossland-Cascade Highway
were widened between Rossland and Big Sheep Creek. Approximately 7.5 miles of this
road was gravelled.
Widening, regrading, and gravelling was carried out on the Fruitvale-Columbia
Gardens Road in the vicinity of Columbia Gardens.
Asphalt Surfacing.—The existing black-top on the Robson-Deer Park Road was
extended 1 mile by road mixing.
Maintenance.—All roads were maintained during the year, and considerable gravelling was done on the following: Waneta-Nelway, 2 miles; Violin Lake Road, 1 mile;
and sundry roads, 3.5 miles.
Five miles on the Robson-Deer Park Road was oiled with bunker " C " fuel-oil.
Snow-removal.—One of the heaviest recorded snowfalls was experienced. All roads
were kept snow-ploughed, and considerable sanding was done on all roads.
Castlegar Ferry
The Castlegar Ferry was maintained during the year and continued to give good
service throughout the year.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained and some repainted.
Work was completed on the redecking of the Columbia River Bridge in Trail with
asphalt plank. New guard-rails were erected in place of the old railing. Considerable
improvements were carried out to the approaches.
A new trestle bridge was built across Beaver Creek on the new Champion Lakes
Park Road, which is being constructed by the Parks Division of the British Columbia
Forest Service.
A foot-bridge was built across Dog Creek at Renata.
Four bridges were replaced by culvert and fill. Of these four, Bridge No. 1 across
Santa Rosa Creek on the Cascade summit and a bridge across Little Ryan Creek were
replaced by multi-plate pipe arches. N 54 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
Shop and Garage
A concrete floor was laid in the two new bays at the equipment-shed at Rossland.
The corrugated-metal roof on the shop was replaced with an asphalt roof.   This was
necessitated because of the snow and ice conditions at Rossland.
A new two-bay equipment-shed was built at Fruitvale.

ATLIN (NORTH) DISTRICT
Roads.—A 2-mile revision was completed on Surprise Lake Road. This project
completes the entire reconstruction of this road from Atlin to Surprise Lake. We
completed a 3-mile revision on O'Donnell River Road. Minor improvements were
carried out over 8 miles of Upper Spruce Creek Road through to Blue Canyon, mainly
grade-raising and widening. An extensive gravelling programme was completed on roads
in the Atlin area. A four-bay equipment-shed was constructed at Atlin by the Department
of Highways forces. An extension was carried out on Sinclair Street between Second and
Third Streets; gravelling will be completed this fiscal year.
Bridges.—Gate Bridge and Spruce Creek No. 1 were completely reconstructed.
Various redecking projects, etc., were completed. Grotto Bridge was replaced by a 60-
inch culvert and fill.
Snow-removal.—The winter snowfall, totalling 50 inches, was very light; however,
glacier conditions were severe. The permanent glacier fences on the Atlin Highway again
proved invaluable; however, numerous other severe glaciers were encountered, which
involved long hours to bring under control. The emergency shelter cabins on the Atlin
Highway were used both by the travelling public and the Department's crews and were
very much appreaciated.
Stikine-Telegraph Creek
Roads.—A U/^-mile section of Glenora Road was reconstructed and 4 miles were
gravelled. The Six Mile Hill on Dease Lake Road was reconstructed and gravelled;
the project improved the opening of Dease Lake Road this spring, as in the past the Six
Mile Hill was always impassable after the remainder of the road had dried out in the
spring. The Telegraph Creek Trail south from Telegraph Creek to the Raspberry River
was cleared and puncheon laid through muskegs, and numerous small pack-bridges
reconstructed. The Tahltan Lake Trail was also cleared out and pack-bridges repaired.
The Four-bay equipment-shed, constructed by the Departmental forces at Telegraph
Creek last fiscal year, was completed and painted, also an oil-house constructed. Two
emergency shelter cabins were constructed on the Dease Lake Road.
Bridges. — A new pier was constructed under Tahltan Bridge (east pier). The
running-planks were replaced on Tuya (double) Howe truss. Various other bridges
were redecked and generally repaired.
Snow-removal.—A light winter snowfall of 47 inches was dealt with successfully,
and roads in the close vicinity of Telegraph Creek were maintained open.
Lower Post
Roads.—A section of Lower Post streets, amounting to a half-mile, were ditched
and gravelled.   A section of McDame Creek Road was revised at Quartz Rock Creek in
J REGIONAL REPORTS N 55
order to provide better alignment for the new King truss. Various low sections of the
road were raised by means of gravelling.
Bridges.—A new bridge pile trestle was constructed up-stream from the old bridge
at French Creek, the new bridge being 120 feet in length. A 70-foot King truss was
completed over Quartz Rock Creek.   Cormiar Creek Bridge was reconstructed.
Snow-removal.—A winter snowfall amounting to 107 inches was dealt with successfully; however, glacier conditions were very severe on the upper end of the McDame
Creek Road, and the ice was held on the upper side of the road by means of temporary
fences. This ice at some points reached a height of 12 feet. New glaciers broke out
weekly, involving round-the-clock work to keep the road open. Temperatures showed
record cold weather, readings ranging from 30 to 62 degrees below zero. Severe washout
conditions were experienced on this road during the spring run-off; however, little delay
to traffic was encountered, and the road was maintained open at all times.
CARIBOO (NORTH)  DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Roads were maintained and minor betterments made throughout
the district. Project work by district crews on the Cariboo Highway and other main
roads was completed, but the road and bridge programme on side-roads had to be reduced
considerably because of the very severe flood conditions encountered in June.
All road and bridge damage was repaired before winter, the total repairs costing
approximately $200,000.
Weather conditions were very adverse up to the end of July (precipitation exceeded
last year). This increased the difficulty of restoring roads to normal condition after the
spring break-up, and again after the main storm of June 26th and 27th. However, dry
weather in August and throughout the fall enabled the crews to get the roads in fair
shape by winter.
Culvert installation and drainage work was again emphasized this year, as well as
an extensive gravelling programme. The amount of gravel applied to the roads during
the year was approximately 104,000 cubic yards (including crushed and pit-run gravel
on day-labour projects).
Day-labour Projects.—Approximately 3 miles of Cariboo Highway was built to
standard 36-foot width, 6 miles of Fraser Road to 26-foot width (standard for this road),
10 miles of Quesnel—Nazko Road gravelled and another 10 miles bulldozer widened
and (or) improved, 1-mile diversion of Quesnel-Blackwater Road constructed 22 feet
wide, 6 miles of Quesnel-Hydraulic Road bulldozer and grader widened and gravelled,
and several miles of the Barkerville Road was gravelled with minor betterment funds.
Contracts.—Three construction contracts were started on the Cariboo Highway
(total mileage, 19.69), but no contract was completed this year owing to flood conditions
and an exceptionally early winter. One contractor had to divert most of his equipment
to restoration of the P.G.E. Railway taken out by the flood.
In addition to the above contracts, a local contractor placed rock and constructed
a berm (counter-weight) between the Fraser River and the Quesnel Arterial Highway to
prevent settling of the street (a problem of long standing).
Paving.—Twenty-six miles of plant-mix pavement was completed by contract, all
on the Cariboo Highway (except 2 miles in West Quesnel). The highway work included
renewal of the pavement through Quesnel (47r). The paving north of Quesnel was not
completed after the flood of June 26th.
Almost 5 miles of pulvimixing was done on the Cariboo Highway (various sections
south of Quesnel).
Snow-removal.—Winter came early this year. There was heavy snowfall and
sustained cold spells.    Considerable private ploughing was done for a small charge. N 56 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
The Quesnel-Nazko Road was ploughed several times to the Blackwater River, and the
Barkerville-Bowron Lake Road several times to Bowron Lake. The Department hired
considerable private equipment to assist with the ploughing, particularly public logging-
roads.
The total snowfall at Quesnel was the most since records have been kept (started in
1951-52), but is thought to be the heaviest known here. At Wells-Barkerville the
amount, though above average, was not as much as in some past years.
Bridges
Nine bridges were built or partially rebuilt (some being replacements after the flood
washout), and three temporary bridges were constructed on detours after the flood, also
three bridges were renewed. Repairs were made to other bridges throughout the district
as required.
An emergency situation developed at the Fraser Bridge, Quesnel, where the entire
river-bank around the east abutment started sliding. The abutment itself dropped and
slipped out a little at the base. Approximately 1,000 yards of rock was placed, and other
work by a local contractor, to rectify this situation.
The bridge crew assembled a multi-plate pipe culvert, replacing Kersley Bridge on
the Cariboo Highway. Altogether eight bridges were eliminated in the district by the
construction contracts and district work.
Ferries
Three reaction ferries were launched, maintained, and pulled from the river as
usual. Hand-cages for passengers were operated during the winter. Ice bridges for
vehicles were made and used at Macalister and Gravelle Ferries for part of the winter.
A motor was installed to power the Soda Creek Ferry hand-cage on an experimental basis.
A new ferry was built and launched at Soda Creek this spring, using steel pontoons.
A similar ferry is being built for Gravelle, but not completed. Repairs and maintenance
work were carried out on ferries, landings, etc., and a new floating approach was installed
at Gravelle.
The exceptionally early freeze-up caught two ferries in the ice, but both were
removed without extensive damage.
Main cables at Soda Creek and Macalister were replaced this winter.
Buildings
Alterations were carried out in the Department of Highways garage at Quesnel to
increase stockroom capacity.
FORT GEORGE DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—An extremely severe spring break-up was experienced throughout
the district, and crews were engaged in maintaining light traffic for a period running into
the summer. Because of the cost of the break-up, regular maintenance was carried on
over the major roads; however, secondary roads were somewhat neglected.
Reconstruction.—A 4-mile section of the Cariboo Highway, Mile 5 to Mile 9 south
of the airport, was constructed to standard as designed by the Soils Engineer. Some
weakenings may occur here, however, as the materials used were not tested.
Day-labour projects were started on both the Mud River and Isle Pierre Roads over
short sections only.
In the McBride area a 3-mile section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was
completed to standard. REGIONAL REPORTS

Surfacing.—Hot plant mix was completed over a section of the Cariboo Highway
from Mile 9 to Mile 14 south of Prince George, also the section of the John Hart Highway from Salmon River northerly for approximately 14 miles.
Snow-removal.—In the Prince George area there was a heavey snowfall throughout
the winter.   Removal was carried out satisfactorily.
In Pine Pass there was a lighter than average snowfall, but with severe drifting
conditions.   Road was kept open throughout the winter.
There was normal snowfall at McBride but with extreme drifting conditions, and
difficulty was experienced in keeping the roads open.
Bridges
New pile trestle structures were built at Grand Forks, Baker Creek, and Mount
Robson, while reconstruction of the Swift Creek Bridge was undertaken. Minor repairs
were carried out to numerous bridges in the McBride area.
The Fraser River Bridge at Prince George was redecked and finished with asphalt
planking on the north lane only.
Bridge Replacement.—A total of five bridges were replaced by culvert and fill in
the district—on the John Hart Highway at Mile 19 and Beaverdam, the Johnson and
Big Bend Bridges on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, and the Williams Bridge
on the West Lake Road.
Ferries
The operation of the Isle Pierre Ferry carried on as usual; however, the Hansard
Ferry had a very short season considering the spring high water and then low water
in August, terminating its service in that month.
OMINECA (EAST) DISTRICT
Roads
General Maintenance.—Maintenance of all roads was carried out during the season
in a very satisfactory manner, weather conditions being quite normal.
Reconstruction.—Fifteen miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was
reconstructed and brought up to standard specifications, commencing at a point 1 mile
west of Vanderhoof and terminating at Mile 16, west of Vanderhoof. The project was
100 per cent completed.
A 7-mile section of the same road was widened, ditched, and gravelled in the
vicinity of the Priestley summit. This section had broken up badly during the spring
break-up period.
On the Fort St. James-Germansen Landing Road, 8 miles were widened, ditched,
and gravelled, as well as 3 miles receiving similar treatment on the Pinchi Lake Road.
Minor reconstruction was carried out on short sections of various settlement roads, such
as the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road, where 2 miles were reconstructed. One mile of
paving was completed west of Vanderhoof, on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway,
as well as 1 mile east of the Sob Lake Road.
Snow-removal.—All roads were kept open during the entire winter. A slightly
heavier snowfall than usual was experienced. A total of 527.5 miles of road was kept
open during the year, at an average cost of $126.84 per mile.
Bridges
No major bridge programme was carried out. Some fifteen bridges were repaired
during the year, major improvements being made on eight of them.
The following bridges were eliminated entirely by replacing with metal culverts and
fill: Moss Creek No. 63, Redmond Creek No. 64, Fasten No. 91, Wright No. 92, Beaverdam No. 127, Hartman No. 94, Stoney Creek No. Ill, Stoney Creek No. 121, and
Tsinkut No. 2. regional reports n 59
Ferries
All ferry service in this district has been discontinued.
OMINECA (WEST) DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Maintenance through the early part of the year consisted mainly
of repairing the damage to the roads caused by a very severe spring break-up. However,
fairly good weather prevailed throughout the summer months, and our maintenance crews
were able to do a considerable amount of gravelling and ditching throughout the district.
Riprap was placed along Colleymount Road to check erosion by wave action from Francois Lake.  Many wooden culverts were replaced by steel culverts throughout the year.
Reconstruction.—Fourteen and six-tenths miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway was rebuilt to standard in sections west of Burns Lake and west of Houston.
Twenty-six miles of other district roads were reconstructed by means of major ditching
and gravelling and minor improvements.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was above average during the early part of the winter,
and snow-ploughing was very heavy. Icing conditions were not serious, and sanding was
carried out when necessary.
Bridges
New bridges were built over Tatalrose Creek and Buck River to replace old and
unsafe structures. Major repair work was done on the east abutment of the Houston
Bridge after its partial collapse. New longitudinal decking was placed on three bridges
and minor repairs carried out to other bridges throughout the district.
Bridges at the three Barrett Creeks, Ross Creek, Powderhouse Creek, and Rose Lake
were eliminated and replaced by steel culvert and fill.
Ferries
The Francois Lake Ferry operated on schedule throughout the season until ice
conditions forced its tie-up on December 23rd. Repair work was done to the Francois
Lake slipway where it was damaged by ice during the early part of the spring. While the
ferry was tied up during the winter, the engines were overhauled completely and preventive ice-cutting was performed around the slipways.
PEACE RIVER
Roads
Maintenance.—Roads were maintained as satisfactorily as can be expected in view
of the prevailing absence of gravel on most roads in this district. Departmental equipment was used, augmented when necessary by hired equipment.
Some maintenance and minor improvements were undertaken using Departmental
implements, pulled by farm tractors to enable farmers to work off their taxes. This is
not an economical operation and involves a very considerable amount of extra supervision.
The section of the Dawson Creek-Alberta Boundary Road south of Pouce Coupe
became increasingly difficult to maintain. The connecting highway to Grande Prairie
and Edmonton is being reconstructed to the equivalent of Trans-Canada standard. It is
evident, therefore, that the 20-mile section mentioned above must be reconstructed in
the near future, apart from the difficulty of maintaining this road in its present state.
A survey for the reconstruction of the first 10 miles south of Pouce Coupe was carried out
by district staff and a design and estimate submitted to the Location Branch.
Day-labour Projects.—In South Peace River, 36.5 miles of reconstruction was
carried out to bring various district roads up to district standard.   Similarly, 47.75 miles N 60 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1955-56
of roads in North Peace River were reconstructed to district standard. In addition, in
North Peace River 45 miles of new road was constructed. The above works were carried
out by district forces and hired equipment, and all projects were completed.
In addition to construction as above, 34 miles of road was gravelled in the South
Peace River and 27.5 in North Peace River. This gravelling was undertaken with pit-run
gravel to provide a base course only.
Contracts.—The Arras-Dawson Creek section of the John Hart Highway, surveyed
and designed by district forces in the winter of 1954-55, comprising 11.2 miles, was let
to contract for construction by the Construction Branch. Due to a late start only 9 miles
were completed and partly gravelled.
Eighth Street, Dawson Creek, was provided with under-drainage, curb and gutter,
and paved to 60-foot width under contract, the length being 0.4 mile.
Paving.—Thirteen and nine-tenths miles of the John Hart Highway was paved from
Commotion Creek to Wabi Hill under contract, this paving being 22 feet in width.
The Arras-Progress section of the John Hart Highway, paved in 1954-55, started to
break up very badly, and sections of this were repaved, totalling about 2 miles, to attempt
to prevent the deterioration of the existing paving.
Snow-removal.—The winter was the most severe for over thirty years. The temperature went below zero on November 10th and remained below zero day and night
until about the third week in March. As a result of this long continued cold spell, the
snow cover was not reduced by chinooks as in a normal year. Therefore, the driving
conditions experienced during the later part of the winter were extremely severe, and
snow-removal costs were very much higher than the average. In addition to the usual
mileage kept open continuously and monthly, which in normal years amounts to 690
miles, this increased to 1,180 miles. This increase was necessary to enable farmers to
get feed in to their stock over roads which they normally kept open themselves. To carry
out this very extensive snow-clearance operation, it was necessary to utilize Departmental
equipment to the utmost and, in addition, to make considerable increased use of hired
equipment. The work carried out by the crews operating the Departmental and hired
equipment was all of very high order; this also applies to the mechanical staff, who kept
the Departmental equipment in order under very arduous conditions.
Bridges
One new bridge was started in South Peace River, pile bents only for this bridge
being driven. One new stringer bridge was completed in North Peace River. Eight bridges
in the district were reconstructed, and repairs carried out to fifteen other bridges, with
repairs to sundry units costing under $350. Three bridge crews were employed for the
greater part of the year, and a crew was sent into the Atlin (North) District to construct
bridges on the McDame Creek Road. This crew erected a King truss under very arduous
winter conditions, and the work they carried out is most commendable.
Ferries
The Hudson Hope and Clayhurst Ferries operated satisfactorily during the ice-free
period. Small boats operated on both these crossings to carry passengers and mail when
ice was running during the autumn and spring. A new small boat was satisfactorily constructed by the ferryman at Hudson Hope.
The Clayhurst Ferry operated double shift during the whole season. The condition
of the fill at the Alces (Moose Creek) River caused a certain amount of trouble, and a
bridge at this site is essential. It is anticipated that traffic over the Clayhurst crossing
will increase and continue to do so with the improvement in roads east and west of the
Alces River, and, therefore, a larger scow for this ferry is a necessity. REGIONAL REPORTS N 61
General
The new site for the Departmental yard at Fort St. John was found to be untenable
due to the construction of a gas-scrubbing plant immediately adjacent to our site. The
new site was therefore purchased, and it is expected that an equipment-shed will be
built next year on this site. The John Hart Highway maintenance crew is still using
temporary quarters at Little Boulder Creek.
Office accommodation and a house for the District Superintendent were leased and
purchased respectively in Fort St. John and a district organization set up to be ready for
full operation as a separate district—that is, North Peace River—as from April 1 st. This
will lead to increased efficiency of administration of the Department's work north of the
Peace River.
SKEENA (EAST) DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—All roads in the district were maintained in a satisfactory manner.
The maintenance consisted mainly of regular grading, some gravelling, and brush-
cutting. Minor improvements were made to some of the more important side-roads.
Construction.—Twenty-seven miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was
gravelled with both pit-run and crushed material in preparation for paving, which was
also done. Approximately 3 miles of the highway was reconstructed and another 9 miles
of the right-of-way was widened out in preparation for future reconstruction.
A new approach was built to the community of Hazelton, improving both grade and
alignment over the old route.
A winter road was constructed to serve the people of Kitwanga while the ferry was
out of operation.
Snow-removal.—All roads in the district were kept open.
Bridges
Necessary maintenance was carried out on all bridees in the district. This consisted
mostly of deck and railing repairs, although several small bridges were reconstructed.
Ferries
All ferries were maintained and operated in a satisfactory manner. New steel
pontoons were supplied and installed during the winter at the Cedarvale Ferry.  CLASSIFICATION  OF HIGHWAYS
