Office of the Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, October 4th, 1957.  HIGHWAYS REPORT
REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, B.C., October 4th, 1957.
The Honourable P. A. Gaglardi,
Minister of Highways, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—A report on the activities of the Department for the fiscal year 1956-57 is
herewith submitted for your consideration.
A total of 184.65 miles were constructed or reconstructed during the year and
comprise the following: Trans-Canada Highway, 77.40 miles; Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway, 24.17 miles; and Okanagan Highway, 21.52 miles. Other highways throughout the Province that were constructed or reconstructed comprised 46.35 miles.
During the fiscal year twenty-four bridge projects were completed and work was
commenced or continued from the previous year on twenty-nine other bridges and three
ferry-landings. Four of the bridges completed during the year were on the Trans-Canada
Highway—namely, Park Bridge, Clanwilliam Overhead, Royal Avenue Over-pass, and
Nanaimo River Bridge.
Extensive location and survey work was undertaken, comprising 406.70 miles of
final location, 409.44 miles of preliminary surveys, and 276.55 miles of office design and
estimates. Two hundred and eighty-five miles of aerial mapping was obtained to facilitate
the location of the Rogers Pass route, the Northern Trans-Provincial route from Tabor
Lake to Lamming Mills, and the proposed extension of the Cassiar Road.
During the year 22,428 miles of highways and 9,969 miles of trails have been
maintained, and this mileage comprises 3,078 of trunk highways, 3,886 miles of main
highways, and 15,464 miles of other roads. In addition to this total, 631.68 miles were
classified as arterial or secondary, details of which are shown in statement attached to
this Report. Some 14,602 miles of highways were kept clear of snow, at an average
cost of $237.65 per mile kept open.
Four new steel ferries were built. Some 2,757,652 vehicles were carried by the
entire ferry system during the year. A new ferry service was started between Britannia
Beach and Woodfibre.
The total number of vehicles carried on the following ferries were: Castlegar
(Southern Trans-Provincial Highway), 503,563; Kelowna (Okanagan Highway), 482,678;
Nelson, 531,242; Ladner-Woodwards (Fraser River), 421,336.
The number of letters handled by the Department comprised 118,372.
The total expenditure for all maintenance on highways, bridges, and ferries amounted
to $16,229,694.51, showing an increase of $1,726,410.92 over the previous year.
Commendable results were obtained 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)     96
Standard reconstruction (all types)  533
General improvements—
Grade improvements—alignment, profile, etc  522
Asphalt surfacing—road mix, seal-coat, etc  347
Dust-control treatments  283
5 J 6 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
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 was 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.
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
Twenty-four bridges were completed during the year 1956-57; a ferry-landing
of semi-permanent construction was also built at Gabriola Island.
The expenditure within the fiscal year on these projects was approximately
$2,500,000.
Four of the bridges completed during the year were on the Trans-Canada Highway—
namely, Park Bridge, Clanwilliam Overhead, Royal Avenue Overpass, and Nanaimo
River Bridge.
Details of the major bridges constructed during the year are listed elsewhere in this
Report.
In addition to the completed projects, work was commenced or continued from the
previous year on twenty-nine other bridges and three ferry-landings. This is a record
number of bridge projects for this Department to have in progress during any one year.
It was also a record year for the value of work turned out by the bridge design and
draughting staff. This was approximately $6,500,000, representing an increase of nearly
100 per cent over the previous year. This was accomplished by an increase in staff of
about 46 per cent.
Although the staff was increased to the limits of the accommodation available, it
was still insufficient to cope with the unusually large programme, and it was necessary
to engage consulting engineering firms to design and to supervise the construction of
a certain number of the bridge projects.
The situation in regard to the supply of structural steel, which was already poor
toward the end of last year, became very much worse this year owing to a strike in the
steel-rolling mills, which cut off supplies for some months.
In anticipation of a steel shortage, the design of structures for this year's programme
was based on the use of concrete in its various forms, such as pre-cast reinforced,
pre-stressed concrete and conventional cast-in-place reinforced concrete, wherever
conditions were suitable. The decision to substitute concrete members for steel members,
together with the fact that the Department already had a quantity of steel beams in stock
and on order, enabled construction work to proceed at a normal rate except in one or
two cases.
Repairs to the C.P.R. bridge at Mission were completed by the railway company,
and the bridge was reopened to rail and highway traffic in August.
Run-off on major rivers was normal. Local heavy rains in the fall, however, caused
some damage to minor bridges, and in the spring one pier of the Hanceville Bridge over
the Chilcotin River was taken out by ice, causing the collapse of one Howe-truss span.
The pier was replaced and a Bailey-bridge span installed by district forces.
District forces carried out general maintenance, together with the reconstruction of
several timber bridges and the replacement of others by culverts and fills.
The Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge, designed and constructed by this Department for the
British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges Authority, was formally opened to traffic REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION J 7
on October 31st, 1956. Work proceeded on other bridges for the Authority—namely,
Oak Street and Middle Arm Bridges, Nelson, Second Narrows, and Kelowna. Tenders
were also called and contracts awarded for the first four contracts for the Deas Island
Tunnel.
C. K. Saunders,
Bridge Engineer.
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
Trans-Canada Highway.—Seventy-seven miles of standard construction and reconstruction were completed this year on various sections across the Province, and 71 miles
of new work was let to contractors. To date the excavation required for work on the
Trans-Canada since the commencement of the reconstruction programme has been over
20 per cent rock, by volume. Two tunnels are included in present contracts. Most of
the completed construction was paved. Of eleven contracts started this year, one is of
four-lane construction.
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.—Four contracts were let this year, three being
on the new route between Cascade and Creston. Twenty-four miles of work was
completed.
Cariboo Highway.—Two contracts were let this year, totalling 45 miles. Fifteen
miles were completed this year of five projects under way. There remains to let only one
major contract (approximately 12 miles in the vicinity of Quesnel) to complete this
highway, although there will still be approximately 12 miles of substandard reconstruction
south of Quesnel to be brought up to a higher standard later.
Okanagan Highway.—Nearly all work done was on uncompleted contracts from
last year. Twenty-two miles were completed this year, and one contract was let and
started at Powers Creek.
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.—Two contracts were let this year and one of
last year's projects completed. Only 3 miles were completed this year, but considerable
clearing was done.
Island Highway.—One contract was let and completed this year (3.28 miles).
Vancouver—Squamish Highway.—No new contracts were let this year, but the
entire highway from Taylor Way, West Vancouver, to Britannia Beach is under construction. Eighteen miles were completed this year. The Upper Levels section was almost
completed, except for gravelling, and the Lions Gate Bridge north approaches were
completed.
Kootenay—Columbia Highway.—One contract was let this year and 2.35 miles
completed, including last year's contract.
Terrace—Kitimat Highway.—One contract was let this year, so that the entire section
from Kitimat to Lakelse is under construction.    Seven miles were completed this year.
Other Highways.—Two miles were completed on the John Hart Highway to finish
last year's project, and this completes the construction of this highway. A contract at
Heffley Canyon on the North Thompson Highway was let and almost completed. Both
approaches to the Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge, the south approach of the Nechako River
Bridge, and the north approaches of the Pattullo Bridge were completed. The Yahk-
Kingsgate Highway was completed. A contract was let for construction of the entire
distance from Elko to Roosville, and 3 miles completed this year. A clearing contract
(without grubbing) was let and almost completed between Port Edward and Cassiar
Cannery (6 miles). A contract for construction of the southern approaches to Oak
Street Bridge was let and started this year.  REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
J 9
Construction Quantities.—Totals for the year were as follows: Roadway excavation—solid rock, 3,923,080 cubic yards, and all other materials, 11,725,352 cubic
yards (includes some rock); culverts—86,101 lineal feet of various-sized pipes; 1,444
lineal feet of large multi-plate pipe and cattle passes; concrete for retaining-walls and
drainage structures—16,773 cubic yards; riprap, loose—59,674 cubic yards; riprap,
hand-laid—54 cubic yards; fencing—36,713 rods and 342 gates; gravel, base and surfacing—1,692,075 tons. There was also considerable steel bin-type retaining-wall and
steel-beam guard-rail installed.

During the year, six employees of various departments were dismissed as a result
of negligence in the operation of the vehicles in their charge.
Workmen's Compensation Board claims, including medical aid, are as follows:—
1954 1955 1956

The increase in payment of Department of Highways claims in the current year over
the previous year is accounted for, in part, by one fatal accident and two permanent partial
disability accidents, which added a cost of $30,543 to the claims paid.
Safety promotional work was carried out again by films, etc., and a large quantity of
pamphlets, etc., distributed.
Safety committees are functioning in nearly all districts and have the whole-hearted
approval of the Workmen's Compensation Board.
Nine meetings of the Interdepartmental Safety Committee were held, with an average
attendance of eight members. We again express our thanks and appreciation to the
members for their willing co-operation.
In addition to claims arising out of automobile accidents, a great many more claims
of many kinds were dealt with, including those on ferries, automobiles damaged on new
construction sections, flood claims, broken guard and bridge rails, bridge decking, land
and snow slides, etc.

REPORT OF THE SENIOR LOCATION ENGINEER
Highway-location surveys undertaken during the fiscal year 1956-57 are detailed in
the following report, showing 406.70 miles of finalized location, 409.44 miles of preliminary surveys, and 276.55 miles of office design and estimates. Two hundred and eighty-
five miles of aerial mapping was obtained to facilitate the location of the Rogers Pass
route, the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway route from Tabor Lake to Lamming Mills,
and the proposed extension of the Cassiar Road.
Legal surveys of rights-of-way, undertaken in conjunction with the Surveyor-
General's Department, and also by Department personnel and private land surveyors,
has not been detailed in this report. J  16
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
The total cost of surveys amounted to $1,467,327.51, which is detailed as follows:—
Trans-Canada Highway     $172,608.71
General highways       800,394.64
Legal surveys          69,231.03

REPORT OF THE CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
Right-of-way negotiations for the 1956-57 fiscal year resulted in a total of 1,053
settlements being completed. In addition, approximately fifty claims were still in process
of negotiation. Five claims were referred to arbitration proceedings for settlement. Cost
of right-of-way and all other properties acquired for public purposes by the Department
totalled $1,632,662.98. The foregoing includes holdings obtained by this Department
on behalf of the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges Authority.
Surveys assigned subsequent to completion of construction work resulted in approximately 44 miles of right-of-way being permanently established.  REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES J 19
Sales by public tender of lands acquired surplus to highway requirements and of
buildings to be cleared from rights-of-way totalled in number sixty-two, with a recovery
of funds in the amount of $61,709.60 to the Department.
Subsequent to reorganization within the Department at the commencement of the
1956-57 fiscal year, field offices for right-of-way agents were established in New Westminster, Kamloops, Nelson, and Prince George, thereby facilitating increased efficiency
in the conduct of right-of-way work. Additional temporary assistance is assigned from
headquarters to any of the field areas where the need for added personnel becomes
apparent. The increased volume of work necessitated engagement of additional personnel during the year.
L. J. Moore,
Chief Right-of-way Agent.
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
In the 1956-57 fiscal year fifty-nine ferries were operated under the jurisdiction of
the Department of Highways. The fleet consisted of the following vessels: Twelve
Government-owned major ferries, eleven Government-owned power-cable ferries, sixteen
Government-owned reaction ferries, nine Government-owned miscellaneous ferries, and
eleven privately owned chartered ferries.
Periodic inspection of all ferries was carried out during this period, and all recommended repairs and renewals were carried out. The entire system operated very
efficiently, and delays due to repairs and inspections were kept to a minimum. In order
to further improve service during bad weather, three of the major ferries have now been
equipped with radar.
TRAFFIC
During this period, 2,757,652 vehicles and 4,161,694 passengers were carried.
This represents an increase of 281,405 vehicles and 392,096 passengers over the preceding year. The largest volume of vehicular traffic was carried by the Nelson Ferry,
which carried 531,242 vehicles.
NEW CONSTRUCTION AND MAJOR ADDITIONS
A considerable amount of new construction and major repairs and additions was
carried out during this period. Four new steel ferries were built to replace condemned
wooden ferries. Two new landings were built for the Albion-Langley service. Two new
landings were built for the Woodfibre—Britannia service. A new landing was built on
Gabriola Island and the Ladner landing was relocated. The Sorrento Ferry "Rolf
Bruhn " was cut up and moved to the Coast where it was lengthened and assembled for
service at Woodfibre. At the completion of the Agassiz Bridge, the Agassiz Ferry was
completely overhauled and equipped with new engines and moved to Albion for the
Albion-Langley service. Extensive repairs and alterations were carried out to the Upper
Arrow Lake Ferry, Kootenay Lake Ferries, and Kelowna Ferries. A considerable portion
of these repairs was necessitated by the vessels breaking ice last winter.
NEW FERRY SERVICES
A new ferry service was started between Britannia Beach and Woodfibre in September, 1956, by a chartered passenger-vessel. This was later replaced by a Government-
owned vehicle-ferry formerly used at Shuswap Lake. J 20
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
Regular vehicle-ferry service between the Gulf Islands and Swartz Bay was started
by a privately owned chartered ferry.
The former Agassiz Ferry has been prepared for the Albion-Langley service, and
the new landings are nearing completion.   Service will start early in June, 1957.
A new steel vehicle-ferry has been added by the owners to the Mill Bay-Brentwood
run, and the service increased from hourly to half-hourly.

REPORT OF THE PAVING ENGINEER
Paving operations were considerably delayed all season as a result of the interruption to the construction programme caused by the severe winter of 1955-56. However,
the excellent summer weather allowed work to proceed quickly on jobs where base and
materials were ready for paving operations.
A total of 400.54 miles of high-type hot-mix pavement was laid by contracts, also
69,717 feet of concrete curb and gutter, including all storm drainage and ancillary work,
and 48.3 miles of pavement was sealed-coated and given non-skid treatment.
The two Surfacing Branch pulvimixing crews processed and laid 21.60 miles of
road-mix pavement and 98 miles of asphaltic stabilized base. The two Departmental
patch-mix plants produced 69,340 tons of asphalt patch material in forty plant sets at an
average cost of 3.36 cents per ton.
Departmental crushers produced 844,027 tons of crushed gravel at an average
price of 48.9 cents per ton.
Despite the delays and difficulties arising out of winter conditions and staff changes,
the Branch achieved a record production year.

REPORT OF THE SENIOR TRAFFIC ENGINEER
This Branch has continued the programme of highway-signing, pavement-marking,
traffic-volume surveys, and channelization, lighting and signalization studies and installations.
The manufacture of traffic signs was continued during the year, with emphasis more
on special signs requiring hand lettering and design considerations. The demand for the
standardized regulatory, warning, and guide signs has been maintained fairly constant over
the past five years. All signs used on Provincial highways are produced 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.
Sign maintenance was taken over by the Regional Engineers, using the three sign-
maintenance trucks previously directed by the Traffic Branch.
Constant liaison was maintained between this branch and the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police Traffic Section, particularly with respect to accident-prone locations, and
improvements at such locations on the highways were made where possible. Many
existing speed-limit zones were studied, with the object of setting reasonable yet safe
limits. The Branch's radar equipment was used in making studies of vehicle speeds.
Traffic-line painting has been recognized as a necessary part of the highways. The
public demand for this proven traffic-control measure has increased.
This Branch has co-operated with the Materials Testing Branch in the laboratory
and road testing of traffic paints, to purchase the most economical paint in terms of cost
and service. There is no apparent decline in the durability of the paint purchased this
year, with some sections of centre line lasting three years. During the year, 1,580 miles
of highway was painted, using 22,500 gallons of paint and 104,000 pounds of glass bead.
This represents a 30-per-cent increase in mileage over the previous year. Average cost
per road-mile was $66.34.
Intersection traffic-control problems constituted a major part of the Traffic Branch
work during the year. Channelization, lighting, traffic signals, and signing have been
designed and used to advantage. Traffic signals were installed at eight major intersections.
Four large lighting projects were completed during the year. The largest was the relighting
of Kingsway in the Municipality of Burnaby, where 190 mercury vapour luminaires of
the new colour-corrected type were installed. This was the first installation in British
Columbia of the colour-corrected mercury vapour lights. The northern approaches to
Pattullo Bridge were reconstructed and completely illuminated with fifty-five luminaires,
while an installation of twenty-one was made at a traffic interchange on the Trans-Canada
Highway a few miles out of Victoria. The redesign of the north approaches to Lions
Gate was also completed this year, and forty-seven luminaires were installed. In
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 volume. J 24 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
During 1956 this Branch saw the culmination of much work with the passing, by
Order in Council, of revised traffic regulations pursuant to the " Highway Act." The new
regulations revised or introduced important laws such as the meaning of traffic signals,
parking restrictions, and pedestrians' rights and duties. Although these regulations were
in turn placed within the "Motor-vehicle Act," an important step was taken by the
passing of modern laws for modern traffic.

Senior Traffic Engineer.
REPORT OF THE SENIOR MATERIALS ENGINEER
The fiscal year 1956-57 saw considerable increase in the facilities of the Testing
Branch and inspection carried out throughout the Province.
A new laboratory located at the corner of Kingston and Oswego Streets was completed and occupied in February, 1957. The new facilities provide more than double the
space formerly utilized in the Douglas Building. New equipment to carry out consolidation, triaxial, unconfined compression, California bearing ratio, plate bearing tests, etc.,
was purchased with the result that the Testing Branch now has one of the most modern
soils laboratories in Canada, capable of performing the most detailed soils tests. Increased
facilities and equipment was also made available for the paint, asphalt, and concrete
laboratories.
Testing requirements have increased to such an extent that regional laboratories have
been set up at Prince George, Kamloops, and Cranbrook to handle routine testing.
A permanent staff under a Regional Materials Engineer at these locations is now giving
closer technical advice and supervision to field inspection for gravel, compaction, and
concrete requirements.
The Testing Branch in the past has only been able to carry out limited research. ,
With the new facilities and aforementioned decentralization, research in the near future
will become one of the major functions.   One such study has recently been undertaken—
namely, to evaluate present subgrade stability on present Provincial highways to arrive at
a more accurate method of design for base course and pavement requirements.
No Province in Canada has such a variation in topography and terrain as British
Columbia; consequently, the highway-construction problems are exceedingly diverse,
many of which are foreign to the rest of Canada. Research into such problems is becoming a definite necessity with the increase in traffic and vehicular loading. It is anticipated
that increased research in the future will save the Province many thousands of dollars
through a more accurate and detailed knowledge of the mechanics and behaviour of
materials under varied stress conditions.
A considerable increase in both field inspection and laboratory testing occurred this
year. Four concrete-testing laboratories, five gravel-testing laboratories, four compaction-
testing laboratories, and two soil-survey crews were in operation in the field. Check
testing and more detailed testing were carried out in the Victoria laboratory. The following tests were run: 2,510 on soils, 161 on cement, 1,204 on concrete aggregates, 85
design mixes for concrete, 1,040 on base gravels, 261 on traffic paints, 96 on other paints,
and 11 on glass reflectorizing beads. A total of 2,160 concrete cylinders and cubes were
cured and broken.
A swamp buggy drilling-rig complete with a Ka-Mo auger drill and Hopto backhoe
was completed during the year and has greatly increased the number of bridge-sites and
other sub-surface investigations that can be carried out.
It is felt that the utility of the Testing Branch in the British Columbia Department
of Highways is increasing annually.  With additional decentralization and the advent of
J REGIONAL REPORTS J 25
research, the Branch will render more efficient service encompassing greater coverage of
soils and concrete problems.

D. D. Godfrey, Regional Highway Engineer, New Westminster
ALBERNI DISTRICT
Maintenance in the district was normal during the summer months; the severe winter
did not affect the roads unduly. Snow-ploughing and sanding were heavy and continuous,
but at no time was the traffic held up on the Alberni summit.
Day-labour Projects.—Approximately 4.6 miles of road was reconstructed and road-
mixed pavement applied; 1.25 miles of road was seal-coated. One mile of road was
reconstructed, ready for paving, and various subdivision roads opened up on a special
allocation. Work was started in the construction of the Peninsular Trail, Ucluelet area;
this was 50 per cent completed.
Construction by Contract.—Approximately 0.7 mile of 24-foot-wide machine-laid
pavement was laid on the Canadian Highway into Alberni. A recap was laid on the east
20 feet of Third Avenue from Kingsway to Redford Avenue. Redford Avenue was reconstructed to 60 feet wide with curb and gutter, and paved between Tenth Street and
Third Avenue, Port Alberni.  Sproat Falls Bridge was paved with hot plant-mix pavement.
Bridge Elimination.—Four bridges were replaced with culverts during the year by
the bridge crew.
Bridges.—Repairs were carried out to the Gertrude Street Bridge for the City of
Alberni.
A four-bay equipment-shed was constructed by the bridge crew.
ATLIN DISTRICT (SOUTH)
Road Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads in the
Stewart and Alice Arm areas. All roads were maintained to a high standard, with the
exception of the Kitsault River Road at Alice Arm. The lack of adequate drainage
makes this road very difficult to maintain.
Bridge Maintenance.—Necessary repairs were carried out on bridges throughout the
district.
All bridges in the Stewart area are in generally good condition.
Two bridges over Paul-Klay-Duc Creek at Alice Arm were washed out during a flash
flood in October and were replaced by a single temporary span.
A considerable amount of bridge work remains to be done in the Alice Arm area.
Reconstruction and Improvements.—A section of the Bear River Road which was
subject to flooding was widened and raised with shot-rock for a distance of 0.5 mile.
Widening of narrow rock sections of the Kitsault River Road was started in October,
but was stopped due to snow conditions before much progress was made. J 26 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
Snow-removal.—Snowfall throughout the district was much heavier than last year.
A total of 481 inches was recorded at Premier, and 243 inches at Stewart.
All travelled roads were kept open. The Kitsault River Road at Alice Arm was
closed for a short period after a heavy snowfall when no equipment was immediately
available.
BURNABY DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance, consisting of ditching, pavement repairs, cleaning catch-basins, shouldering, mowing, the painting of crosswalks and school crosswalks,
centre-lining, and sign maintenance, was carried out during the year.
New Construction.—A new project to continue the reconstruction of the Hastings—
Barnet Highway was commenced from Westbridge easterly for a distance of 1.7 miles.
The construction of grade was completed during the year with the exception of the
grade in the vicinity of the slide area at Barnet. The slide area has presented a major
problem, and efforts are in progress to stabilize this area in order that a suitable grade
and alignment may be designed and constructed. Work on this portion must continue
next year. At the year-end 90 per cent of the granular base course had been applied to
the remainder of the project.
The project, with the exception of the slide area, will be ready for bituminous surfacing early in the coming year.
Design work and the acquisition of necessary right-of-way for reconstruction of the
Lougheed Highway from Boundary Road to North Road was in progress during the year
by the Construction Branch.
Design work for the reconstruction of the arterial highway, Edmonds Street, was
carried out by the Surfacing Branch.
Snow-removal.—Heavy snow and icing conditions were experienced through the
winter months. Roads were kept in safe travelling condition at all times by the use of
equipment, chemicals, and sand. A twenty-four-hour patrol covered all highways during
freezing temperatures to ensure that a high standard of safety was maintained. The pavement on all main highways was kept bare by the careful application of salt.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The section of the Hastings-Barnet Highway cut off by
Westridge Subdivision was recapped with a hot mix through a distance of 0.85 mile.
The new grade on Hastings-Barnet Highway from North Road to Nicholls Chemical
Plant (distance, 0.7 mile), reconstructed last year, was paved with hot mix on a 24-foot
width.
CHILLIWACK DISTRICT
Roads
New Construction.—No new construction was carried out by district forces. The
1.5-mile link between the Trans-Canada Highway and the Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge was
completed under the direction of the Construction Branch.
Reconstruction.—Reconstruction of a 5.1-mile portion of Columbia Valley Road
was started in September, 1956. Due to the fact that considerable clearing, brushing,
and rock work was involved, it was possible to continue work all winter, except for a
period of approximately six weeks when snow and cold weather necessitated a shut-down
of operations. By the end of the fiscal year, the road was largely roughed out, awaiting
gravel and finishing work.
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all main roads, and their
condition at the end of the fiscal year was generally satisfactory, with the exception of
Trans-Canada Highway 8r east of Chilliwack and Trans-Canada Highway 5-13 west of
Cheam View, where, due to numerous base failures, an extensive excavation and backfilling programme was in progress. REGIONAL REPORTS I 27
An attempt was made to improve the standard of various lesser local roads through
the application of gravel to the road surface and the renovation of ditches.
Snow-removal.—The problem of snow-removal was a fairly continuous one, due to
the fact that snowfalls were frequent. Icing conditions were at times severe, and on some
occasions drifting was extreme.
The increased use of salt proved very effective in controlling ice conditions and
restored the pavement to a bare condition with a minimum of delay, and through use
of all available Departmental ploughing equipment, together with hired units, roads were
kept open to traffic at all times.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The following bituminous surfacing was completed during
the present fiscal year:—
New bituminous surfacing— Miles
South approach to Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge  1.5
Huntingdon Townsite _■_  0.1
Total  1.6
Major surface renewal—
Trans-Canada Highway 5-13  3.5
McGrath Road 9r   1.8
Abbotsford area  0.7
Total  6.0
Bridges
All bridges in the district were inspected and normal maintenance carried out.
Major repairs were made to Popcum Bridge No. 2 (No. 5-88) and Petticoat Creek
Bridge (No. 5-33).
Ferries
The Agassiz Ferry normally afforded twenty-four-hour service throughout the year
until October 31st, when, upon the opening of the Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge on October
31st, service came to an end.
From May 15th to June 30th, hours of operation were reduced to cover only the
hours from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., the presence of driftwood in the river rendering operation
during hours of darkness hazardous.
Aside from the above, only minor interruptions in service occurred.
Miscellaneous
Traffic islands were installed in Chilliwack at the junction of the Trans-Canada
Highway and Main Street.
Maintenance of the emergency landing at Matsqui required the constant attention
of our local maintenance crew until the Mission Bridge was reopened to traffic on
August 10th.
Under the direction of the Surfacing Branch, curb and gutter were installed on both
sides of Trans-Canada Highway 149r in Abbotsford for a distance of 0.3 mile and on
Arterial Highway 5r, also in Abbotsford, for a distance of 0.3 mile.
The shoulders of Trans-Canada Highway 5-13 were brought up to Trans-Canada
Highway standards by district forces, from Lorenzetti Creek to Hunter Creek, a distance
of 3.75 miles.  REGIONAL REPORTS J 29
COMOX DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout the
year. On a number of the side-roads, minor improvements, such as ditching, widening,
clearing, and gravelling, were undertaken. A large number of old culverts were replaced
with metal pipe.
A large new power-grader was placed at Sayward. This vastly improved the road
conditions in this area.
Construction.—The Island Highway was constructed from Duncan Bay to Menzies
Bay, a total of 5.1 miles, in preparation for paving.
The Sayward Road was constructed for 5 miles through the valley.
A total of 25.5 miles of sundry roads were constructed, 14.0 miles of sundry roads
were surfaced, and 8.5 miles seal-coated.
Snow-removal.—All roads were kept open, although a heavier than normal snowfall
was encountered. A new Baughman sand-spreader was placed at Parksville, which was
used primarily for the Canadian Highway over the summit. This improved the winter
travelling conditions greatly and also the efficiency of the operation.
A new Richardson rotary snow-plough was procured for the Forbidden Plateau
Road and placed on the H.D. 15. It worked well in dry snow; however, as most of the
snow that fell this year was wet, the operation as a whole was not too successful.
Bridges
A new bridge was built across Trout Creek at Menzies Bay on the Island Highway,
eliminating the old single-lane bridge and steep, dangerous approach on the north side.
The Royston and Hammond Bridges were reconstructed. A sidewalk was built on
the Washer Creek Bridge in Union Bay.
Buildings
A five-bay equipment-shed and oil-house was built at Parksville by day-labour. The
yard was completely fenced in. The partially completed building on the property was
completed and turned into an assembly-hall and tool-shed.
Ferries
Normal service was maintained on all ferries during the year except the Hornby
Island Ferry, which was ripped from its mooring by a storm in December and damaged.
The island was without service for five days while it was repaired.
The " Catherine Graham " was taken to dry-dock for an overhaul. It also had its
hull scraped and painted.
COWICHAN-NEWCASTLE DISTRICT
Maintenance of all roads was kept up throughout the year. Several gravel roads
suffered more than average due to the severe winter, but on the whole the roads came
through the winter and spring fairly well. Snow-removal and sanding were heavy, with
twenty-four-hour patrol maintained when and where necessary.
Flood damage during last fall was quite severe in this district. One bridge was
washed out on the Cowichan Bay Road, which was later moved back in and raised.
Numerous culverts washed out, but traffic delays were minor. Approximately 2.5 miles
of road was improved to a higher standard.
Day-labour Projects.—Approximately 17.85 miles of road was reconstructed and
paved with road-mix pavement. Approximately 4.75 miles were seal-coated and 0.4
mile double flush-coated. J 30 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
Bridge Elimination.—The Greenway Bridge was replaced with a 5-foot arch culvert
on concrete foundation.
Bridges.—Seven bridges were reconstructed and there were major repairs on four
others.
Construction by Contract.—One mile of the Trans-Canada Highway between Ladysmith and Cassidy was reconstructed and paved.
A new bridge was constructed over the Nanaimo River on the Trans-Canada
Highway.
Five miles of the Trans-Canada Highway south of Duncan was reconstructed and
paved.
Several miles of the South Shore Road was recapped, and the section west of Sutton
Creek was paved with plant mix.
DELTA DISTRICT
Roads
New Construction.—Construction of the approaches to the Middle Arm Bridge,
comprising 0.75 mile, was undertaken and largely completed by district forces.
Reconstruction.—The 30-mile section of Pacific Highway 13r from Cloverdale
south to Brown Road was completely reconstructed to a 40-foot width. Originally the
road was surfaced with a concrete pavement 18 feet in width, but this had become sadly
fractured and unstable. Sufficient right-of-way was present for widening approximately
1 mile of the highway, but along the south 2 miles it was necessary to acquire an additional 20 feet of property, move a power-line, and reditch. Initially, an attempt was
made to shatter all pavement, but this method was soon abandoned, since, in addition to
the excessive cost of the operation, it was considered that the original pavement would
afford valuable support to the new road bed. An average depth of 1 foot of pit-run
gravel followed by %-inch crushed rock was applied, watered and rolled. It proved possible to apply a road-mix surface to the northly 0.9 mile.
A 0.3-mile section of Pacific Highway 13r between Broadway and Old McLellan
Road in Cloverdale was reconstructed and curb and gutter installed by district forces.
A truck lane, 0.76 mile in length, was constructed at Murrayville Hill on Trans-
Canada Highway 3r.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The balance, 0.3 mile, of the reconstructed portion of
Scott Road.
Beaubien Road, 2.2 miles.
Trans-Canada Highway 2r, 0.7 mile of concrete pavement capped and widened.
Murrayville Hill, Trans-Canada Highway 2r, 0.9 mile, third lane.
Pacific Highway 13r, 0.9 mile of road mix.
Pacific Highway 13r, Broadway to Old McLellan Road in Cloverdale, 0.3 mile
paved gutter to gutter.
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads. Severe pavement failures occurred on King George VI Highway, Trans-Canada Highway 3r, and the
Aldergrove-Bellingham Highway during the spring break-up. Wherever possible, points
of failure were excavated and back-filled with suitable material. This proved impractical
on the King George VI Highway, where it became necessary, in order to keep traffic
moving, to apply a lift of gravel directly upon the failing pavement.
Snow-removal.—Salt was used to a greater degree during the past winter than
formerly, with the result that roads were generally kept bare. In cases where chemical
was not applied soon enough, the snow packed to ice and created rough and sometimes
slippery driving conditions which lasted for some days.
Through constant vigilance on the part of the crews and prompt action when necessary, major traffic tie-ups were kept to a minimum. regional reports i 31
Bridges
All bridges in the district were inspected and maintained in the usual manner.
As a result of severe damage sustained by one pier of Eburne Bridge No. 4, complete replacement of the pier was necessary.
In conjunction with the reconstruction of Pacific Highway 13r, Nicomekl Bridge
No. 10-24 was widened, improving its alignment with the road.
Ferries
Barnston Island Ferry. — Service was maintained with only minor interruptions
throughout the year. The tug was taken to Star Shipyard for annual inspection on
October 17th and returned to service on November 5th.
Ladner Ferry.—The "Delta Princess" was out of service from April 19th to May
2nd for inspection and repairs. A substitute tug and barge service was provided. It
became necessary to construct a new landing on the Ladner side due to extreme scour
which undermined the piles, and during the change-over process, November 18th to
December 2nd, ferry service was suspended.
Radar was installed in the ferry late in the summer and proved of great assistance
during winter fogs.
Miscellaneous
A pedestrian overpass was erected, with the assistance of district forces, to permit
safe passage of pupils at Bridgeport School across the approach to the Oak Street Bridge.
It had become apparent than an ancient wooden box culvert on Aldergrove-
Bellingham Highway 77r was failing; this was replaced, under contract, by 240 feet of
60-inch-diameter tunnel liner plate, installed by tunnelling.
Dredging was undertaken in the vicinity of Barnston Island, and material obtained
thereby to fill the old borrow-pit outside the island dyke and reduce the danger of
further erosion.
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 and December caused watercourses to overflow their
banks, particularly in the Port Moody, loco, Bedwell Bay, Sunnyside, and Mission areas.
Necessary repairs were effected promptly.
New Construction. — The reconstruction of the Vancouver—Coquitlam Highway
within the City of Port Moody was continued by the commencement of a new project
through a length of 1.45 miles. At the year-end the project was practically completed
and ready for pavement.
The Lougheed Highway was reconstructed in the Municipality of Pitt Meadows from
the Pitt River Bridge to Harris Road for a distance of 2.1 miles.
The Lougheed Highway was reconstructed from Harrison River Bridge to the
Pump-house Bridge at the easterly foot of Agassiz Mountain in the Municipality of the
District of Kent, through a distance of 3.35 miles. This project was completed except
for a small quantity of crushed gravel by the year-end and ready for paving.
The loco Road to Port Moody Road was reconstructed through a distance of 3 miles
and ready for paving.
Work was commenced on the extension of the Rennie Road in Pitt Polder area. By
the end of the year, subgrade had been constructed from Sturgeon Slough to Pitt Lake, a
total distance of 2.67 miles, and the granular base course had been partially completed to
a point 1.3 miles north of Sturgeon Slough.  REGIONAL REPORTS J 33
A revision in alignment and grade at Kanaka Creek, east of Haney, on the Lougheed
Highway was commenced.   This work will be completed next year.
The north approach (0.98 mile) to the Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge was constructed
by the Construction Department.
Snow-removal.—Heavy winter conditions were experienced throughout the district.
Roads were kept open at all times and were maintained in safe travelling condition by the
use of equipment, chemicals, and sand. The pavement on main highways was kept bare
by the careful application of salt.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The following plant-mix paving was completed in the district
during the year under direction of Surfacing Branch:—

The Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge was officially opened on October 31st, 1956.
Repairs to the Mission Bridge were completed, and the bridge was opened to traffic
at 11.40 a.m. on August 10th, 1956.
Work on the new Harrison River Bridge continued throughout the year.
Work on the Pitt River Bridge reconstruction continued throughout the year.
A contract was let and work commenced on the construction of a new bridge to
replace worn-out structures at the following locations on the Lougheed Highway: Kanaka
Creek, Silver Creek, Dewdney, Deroche, and Pump-house Bridge, Agassiz Mountain. i 34 highways report, 1956-57
Buildings
The construction of a ferry equipment-shed was commenced at Albion. The shed
is to be used as a central storage for Provincial ferry stores and equipment. This building
will be completed early next year.
Ferries
The operation of the Mission-Matsqui Ferry continued until August 10th, 1956, on
which date the Mission Bridge was reopened to traffic. An additional barge and tug was
put into operation in order to handle heavy summer traffic and the summer agricultural
produce from the Abbotsford and Mission areas.
The Albion Ferry came into being when the Agassiz-Rosedale operation was
suspended upon the opening of the new Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge. The ferry left Rose-
dale on March 6th, 1957, for the Star Shipyard, New Westminster, for a complete overhaul and refit.   The new service is scheduled to begin approximately June 1st, 1957.
A contract was let and work commenced on the landings for the new service
between Albion and McMillan Island on 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.
New Construction.—The shoulders of the Trans-Canada Highway were brought up
to standard from Hunter Creek to Flood (1.25 miles) and from Flood to Silver Creek
(3.29 miles).
ESQUIMALT DISTRICT
Maintenance.—The rapid growth of roadside brush due to the damp climate of the
district is a maintenance problem. The high cost of labour prevents large-scale hand
control; therefore, a chemical control programme was organized, which was especially
effective on such types of vegetation as broom and alder. Two abnormal conditions created other maintenance difficulties: firstly, wet weather prevented paving on newly constructed portions of the Trans-Canada Highway and several thousand vehicles had to
travel daily over several miles of gravel surface throughout the winter and spring; secondly, in December the district recorded the worst rainstorm in its history. Portions of
Trans-Canada Highway, Sooke Highway, and many minor roads were badly damaged,
and Jordan River and Stoney Creek Bridges were partially washed out.
The local bridge crew constructed small additions to Saseenos and Cobble Hill
offices and a large addition to the Langford garage, which provided 2,100 square feet of
new office and storage space.
Bridges.—The hundred bridges in the district were maintained to a high standard.
Logging operations, however, provide a constant hazard to them. During a December
storm having a 12-inch rainfall in a twenty-four-hour period, logging debris carried away
125 feet of Jordan River Bridge and caused irreparable damage to Stoney Creek Bridge
near Sooke. A logging company at Jordan River provided an aerial crossing for pedestrians until a new span and trestle could be erected and the district's bridge crew commenced construction of a permanent 70-foot steel-girder span at Stoney Creek.
Projects.—District crews completed their largest work programme. They reconstructed 4 miles of old substandard roads, laid asphalt surfacing on 8 miles of road, and
seal-coated 10 miles of old asphalt surfacing. A special crew, with headquarters at the
New Westminster regional office, commenced construction of the remaining link in the
Jordan River-Port Renfrew Road. Portions of this road have been completed by logging companies under terms of forest management licences. REGIONAL REPORTS I 35
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was average throughout the winter. With better highway
standards encouraging higher speeds, and with an increasing number of vehicles, glaze-
ice, which forms with radiation cooling on clear mornings, became more of a problem.
Special efforts were made to protect the public under these conditions, which were
reflected in the highest sanding and snow-removal costs yet.
The Department participated financially in the reconstruction of Esquimalt Road
within Esquimalt Municipality.
MACKENZIE DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Most roads were kept in fair to good condition for most of the year.
Extensive gravelling was done on many of the side-roads. Heavy flooding conditions
again occurred both in November and December. Most of the district came through
without too much damage. The Bella Coola area, however, suffered considerable damage to roads and two bridges were washed out. Bella Coola also had a very severe
winter, with bad frost action.   The remainder of the district had a normal winter.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Sechelt—Pender Harbour Highway was completed (9.6 miles).
The Egmont Road (4 miles) was completed.
The Vananda-Gillies Bay Road reconstruction (4 miles) was 80 per cent completed.
The Lund Road was reconstructed for a distance of 3 miles, ready for pavement.
The Garden Bay Road was reconstructed for a distance of 2 miles.
The Bella Bella Road was constructed for a distance of 2 miles, and 70 per cent
completed.
Extensive widening and gravelling were done on various sections of the Bella Coola
Road.
Bridges.—Regular maintenance was carried out on bridges. Klonick Creek Bridge
on the Bella Coola Road was replaced. Extensive repairs were made on Port Mellon
Bridge No. 1, Lois River Bridge, and Powell River Bridge.
Paving.—Contracts were let for the following: Sechelt-Pender Harbour, 14.60
miles; Porpoise Bay Road, 0.65 mile; Westview-Lang Bay, 2.4 miles; and Granthams
Landing, 0.035 mile.
On the Lund Road, 3 miles were road-mixed by district forces.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal was normal throughout most of the district. Bella
Coola, however, had very severe frost conditions. The Department endeavoured to keep
ice conditions to a minimum by extensive use of salt and calcium chloride, with considerable success.
NANAIMO-ISLANDS DISTRICT
Maintenance. — The highways in the Nanaimo-Islands District received normal
maintenance. Several floods occurred during the late fall, and damage was more widespread than severe.
Snow-removal.—Another severe winter was experienced, but the spring break-up
was better than expected. Road restrictions were imposed for a few weeks. Twenty-
four-hour patrols were operated on main traffic routes, and sanding was extremely heavy
due to unusual thawing and freezing conditions.   All roads were kept open.
Day-labour Projects.—Extensive regravelling was carried out on Mayne, Gabriola,
Pender, and Saltspring Islands. A one-bay equipment-shed was constructed on Salt-
spring Island.
Approximately 1.75 miles of road-mix pavement and 4Vi miles of seal-coating,
10 miles of regravelling, and 5 miles of reconstruction to a better standard and gravelling
were carried out on Saltspring Island.  REGIONAL REPORTS J 37
Approximately 2 miles of road-mix pavement and 10 miles of seal-coating were
carried out in the Nanaimo area. A two-bay equipment-shed was completed in Nanaimo
yard.
Ferries.—Ferry service was maintained throughout the year.
Reconstruction by Contract.—General construction was started on curb and gutter
through Nanaimo, which was not completed during the fiscal year.
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 excellent condition by the use of equipment, chemicals, and sand.
New Construction.—The north approach system to the Pattullo Bridge was completed during the year.
NORTH VANCOUVER DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Regular maintenance was carried out, and considerable patching was
necessary on Third Street.
Serious flooding again occurred both in November and December, resulting in considerable damage to shoulders and blocking of culverts and ditches. It did not, however,
affect the Capilano or Seymour Rivers, the banks of which stood up very well.
Construction.—Reconstruction and paving of Marine Drive between the Capilano
Bridge and Capilano Road were completed, also the clover-leaf to the Lions Gate Bridge.
An addition was constructed to the over-pass on the clover-leaf end of Marine Drive.
A steel-girder bridge was constructed across Capilano River. A total of 2,500 lineal
feet of Keith Road was reconstructed and paved for three-lane traffic.
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions were normal. Icing conditions were controlled
by extensive use of salt.
OAK BAY DISTRICT
The Department shared in the cost of reconstructing nearly a mile of Beach Drive,
which is a secondary highway.
PRINCE RUPERT DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Roads throughout the district were maintained in a satisfactory condition throughout the year.
The Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was closed to traffic for two days in the
fall when heavy rains caused Prudhomme Lake to cover the road to a depth of 3 feet.
No damage to highway resulted.
Normal maintenance was carried out on all trails and walks in outlying areas. Trails
at Dodge Cove were gravelled and ditches improved.
Bridges.—A number of bridges were redecked during the year, and necessary repairs
carried out on the remainder.    Bridges throughout the district are in fair condition.
New Construction.—Work was continued on the Masset-Port Clements Road.
Additional equipment was brought in to the Masset end, and considerable progress made
despite heavy rains during the fall and winter. The road now extends 12 miles south of
Masset. Of this, 5.5 miles are gravelled, 4 miles are constructed to subgrade, and
3 miles are cleared only. A 40-foot log-stringer bridge was constructed over the Watum
River, 9 miles south of Masset.
Work from the Port Clements end progressed slowly and was halted in August.
Additional equipment was obtained in February and work was resumed.   The work from J 38 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
this end of the road has been considerably hampered by heavy timber and the lack of
suitable gravel.
Reconstruction and Improvements.—A 1 -mile diversion of the Skidegate—Tlell Road
was carried out to by-pass a section of road being undermined by sea erosion. Other
sections of this road are also subject to sea erosion and will require relocating in the future.
The road between Queen Charlotte City and Skidegate was improved by the removal
of rock corners and widening of narrow sections.
Gravelling was carried out on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway from Mile 7.7
to Mile 25.
Paving.—A 10-mile section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway from Mile
7.7 to Mile 18 was pulvimixed. The weather was very poor while this work was in
progress, and the surface did not stand up too well over the winter.
Garage Buildings.—The construction of a new four-bay shop and oil-house at Port
Clements, on the Queen Charlotte Islands, was started in February and is now nearing
completion. The new shop was built by Department forces and is of standard design.
When completed the shop and yard will become the central assembly point for our forces
on the Queen Charlotte Islands.
Snow-removal.—All travelled roads were kept open throughout the year. Snowfall
was about normal, but severe icing conditions were encountered in the Prince Rupert area.
Snowfall in the Queen Charlotte Islands was very light.
SAANICH DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Two-thirds of this district's roads have an asphalt or concrete surface; therefore, maintenance work consisted chiefly of routine ditching, patching, and
mowing.
Projects.—The two district road crews reconstructed 4 miles of roads, laid 1 mile of
asphalt road-mix surfacing, and seal-coated 10 miles.
Ferries.—Larger ferries were placed in operation on both the Swartz Bay-Fulford
Harbour and Brentwood-Mill Bay routes, thus requiring major reconstruction of the
four ferry-slips. The two Brentwood—Mill Bay ferries carried a heavy traffic load during
the year, since many motorists wished to by-pass the Malahat drive, which was torn up
with construction work.
Snow-removal.—Although winter conditions were average, snow-ploughing and
sanding services were improved, resulting in higher costs. One blizzard coincided with
the evening peak traffic-flow on the arterial highways leading from Victoria, and this
experience showed that the application of straight salt was the only method in which the
district's equipment could cope with such storms.
SKEENA DISTRICT  (WEST)
Maintenance.—All roads throughout the district were maintained in fair condition.
Gravel roads in this area are difficult to maintain because of the heavy rainfall and
the heavy traffic associated with logging operations. Despite constant grading, the
gravel section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between Terrace and Prince
Rupert tends to become very rough at times. A programme of cross-drain installation
instituted on the Northern Trans-Provincial during the year should improve drainage
considerably.
Gravelling was carried out on 2 miles of the old Remo Road and on a number of
streets in the Terrace area.
Bridges.—All bridges were maintained throughout the year.
Heavy shot-rock was placed around the west abutment of Kalum River Bridge,
and the river-bank immediately up-stream from the bridge is being riprapped. Work is
90 per cent complete. REGIONAL REPORTS I 39
Five spans of the south approach of Brauns Island Bridge were replaced by fill.
In general, the bridges throughout the district are in poor condition, and it will be
a number of years before the necessary repairs and renewals can be completed.
Reconstruction and Improvements.—A %-mile section of the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway was improved by widening and realignment. Work was seriously
hampered by heavy rains in September and October.
A decision by the Canadian National Railways to relocate its track outside the tunnel
at Kwinitsa, 52 miles west of Terrace, necessitated the realignment and widening of
0.4 mile of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. Since this section is immediately
adjacent to the Skeena River, shot-rock was required for most of the fill. Rock was
obtained by widening a through cut 3 miles to the east. Work was started in November
and continued throughout the winter, despite difficulties caused by snow and cold weather.
To date all the rock fill is in place and the work is about 90 per cent complete.
Paving.—Hot-mix pavement was laid for 20.4 miles west of Terrace on the Northern
Trans-Provincial Highway and for 1.5 miles on Kalum Street in Terrace.
Gravel was crushed and stock-piled under contract at Kwinitsa in preparation for
pulvimixing on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway during this coming year.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was somewhat lighter than last year, but snow-removal
costs were up considerably.   All roads were kept open and well sanded.
VANCOUVER-POINT GREY DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Regular maintenance was carried out. Some damage was caused
by floods in the Spanish Banks area of Marine Drive.
Imperial Street heaved badly during the winter due to frost action.
Snow-ploughing and sanding were normal.
Construction.—On Marine Drive, 681 lineal feet of curb and gutter and pavement
widening were carried out.

D. R. McLeod, Regional Highway Engineer, Kamloops
CARIBOO DISTRICT (SOUTH)
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance tasks were carried out on all travelled roads
throughout the year. Departmental plant was used, augmented by rented equipment as
required.
Reconstruction and Minor Betterments.—In the Williams Lake sub-area the following roads were re-formed and gravelled: Horsefly (No. 419), 9 miles; Black Creek
(No. 425), 8 miles; Beaver Valley (No. 417), 8 miles; Dog Creek (No. 37), 0.4 mile.
In 100 Mile House sub-area, realignment and gravelling were carried out on the
following roads: Canim Lake (No. 318), 7.5 miles; Mile 93 to Bridge Lake (No. 370),
3.4 miles; Mile 100 to Roe Lake (No. 371), 3 miles; Bridge Lake north (No. 314), 2
miles; Little Timothy Mountain (No. 353), 3 miles; Greenlees (No. 452), 1.5 miles.
In the Alexis Creek sub-area, similar improvement work was done on the following
roads: Bluff Lake (No. 341), 7 miles; Redstone to Chezacut (No. 392), 6 miles; Big
Creek (No. 306), 7 miles; Chilcotin (No. 18), 3.6 miles.
In addition, heavy gravel resheeting was added to 22.1 miles of existing gravel
pavements following motor-grader preparation.  REGIONAL REPORTS I 41
Betterment work was delayed by wet weather, which restricted earthworks to the
late summer and fall months.
Sand and Gravel.—A total of 124,524 cubic yards of maintenance gravel was hauled
to various roads, while 2,303 cubic yards of sand was spread on steep grades during the
snow season.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall for the winter varied from 128 inches at Lone Butte to
76 inches at Alexis Creek. Average fall for the whole district was 104 inches, which is
identical with the 1955-56 season.
Snow-removal cost increased 18 per cent compared to 1955-56, due mainly to the
need for use of rented equipment to cope with widespread falls.
The total mileage kept open to traffic during the snow season was 1,180 miles.
Bridges
Two major bridges were replaced with new structures at McClinchie River on Main
Road No. 18 and Bambrick Bridge over Big Creek. At Hanceville Bridge over the Chil-
cotin River, a 125-foot Howe truss, destroyed by floods, was replaced by a 130-foot-span
Bailey bridge (triple-single). At Chilco Lake Bridge, pile-bent work was commenced
on a new structure to give access to ranchers east of Chilco River.
Major repairs were carried out on five bridges, including the Chilcotin Suspension
Bridge over the Fraser River.
Routine maintenance was carried out on all other bridges in the district.
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. Very little change has been
necessary; 4 miles have been widened to standard Trans-Canada Highway specifications.
On the Trans-Canada Highway west, some patching has been necessary. Burning
of weeds and slashing have been done as usual. Ditches have had to be cleaned out due
to rock-slides along Six Mile Hill at Savona and along Martel section toward Spences
Bridge. Seven miles of widening has been carried out from Ashcroft to Ashcroft Manor,
bringing this section up to Trans-Canada Highway requirements.
Unclassified Highways.—The North Thompson Highway has been well maintained
at all times and has been kept open up to Avola during the winter months.
Bridge Lake, Lemieux Creek, Barriere, Upper Clearwater Valley, Robbins Range,
and part of the Lac le Jeune roads have been improved considerably due to widening and
gravelling carried out on these roads.
The Kamloops-Merritt Road has been kept in very good condition.
All other side-roads have been kept in a good state of repair. Snow-removal and
sanding have been very heavy.   Some hired equipment was needed.
General Construction and Reconstruction
North Thompson area: North Thompson Highway No. 71, 5Vi miles reconstructed
in the McLure area; Clearwater Valley No. 32, 3 miles reconstructed.
Upper Barriere No. 10, 6 miles reconstructed.
Rothery No. 149, 6 miles reconstructed.
Robbins Range No. 10, 3 miles widened.
Shuswap No. 68, 2 miles widened.
Kamloops-Merritt Road No. 67, complete reconstruction except 0.8 mile at
Willow Ranch. J 42 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
Cache Creek-Ashcroft No. 18l, 4 miles reconstructed.
Ashcroft Manor-Ashcroft No. 56l, 4 miles reconstructed.
Several minor reconstruction projects were carried out on side-roads.
Classified routes through the City of Kamloops were maintained on a share basis,
also those through the Villages of North Kamloops and Ashcroft.
Bridges
All bridges in this district were kept in good condition. Brookfield Bridge was
washed out and a new bridge was built. The bridge-elimination programme was carried out.
Ferries
Routine maintenance on all ferries has been carried out in the district. Pontoons
and some material have been purchased for replacing the Little Fort and Black Pool
Ferries with steel-pontoon 10-ton ferries. Non-delivery of ironwork has held up this work.
LILLOOET DISTRICT
Roads
Major Construction.—Extensive work was carried out by day-labour on the Lytton-
Lillooet Road. Mile 8.3 to Mile 10.7 and Mile 12.0 to Mile 18.6 (9 miles) were widened
and improved. In addition, 7.8 miles of road-mix pavement was laid—3.6 miles on the
south end and the remainder on the north end.
The Lillooet-Moha Road received extensive work with day-labour. Mile 0 to
Mile 0.5 and Mile 3.7 to Mile 12.2 (10 miles) were widened and improved with completion of the rock excavation at Antoine Bluffs at Mile 18 and approaches for the
Bridge River Bridge at Mile 4.
Two miles on the Bridge River Road, between Bralorne and Pioneer were widened
and improved.
The Loon Lake Road was relocated and constructed, to reduce gradient between
Mile 9 and Mile 10 from junction at Cariboo Highway.
One mile of access roads for subdivisions at Pemberton were constructed.
Three miles of Kelly Lake Road was reconstructed and heavily gravelled.
Maintenance and Minor Betterments. — General improvements were made to the
Young Lake, Big Bar Lake, Loon Lake, Fountain Valley, and Pemberton Portage Roads.
An 80-foot multi-plate concrete culvert was constructed at Laluwissin Creek by the local
bridge crew on the Lillooet-Lytton Road. A 300-yard by-pass was constructed on the
Squamish Arterial Highway. One mile of road was reconstructed and heavily gravelled
at Pemberton Meadows.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal presented no difficulties during the year, with a
normal fall of snow.   Sanding of main roads was increased.
Bridges
The Bridge River Bridge was reinforced to handle traffic during construction of a
new 100-foot Howe-truss bridge. The span and approaches to the Lillooet Suspension
Bridge were redecked. The Lillooet Station Bridge required considerable work, due to
flood damage. Repairs and routine maintenance were carried out on the various bridges
in the district.
Ferries
Two small life-boats were purchased for the High Bar and Big Bar Ferries. Normal
maintenance was carried out on the High Bar reaction and Pavilion cable ferries. REGIONAL REPORTS J 43
NORTH OKANAGAN DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Maintenance was carried out in the usual manner, beginning with
repairs to pavements. Approximately 2,000 cubic yards of patch mix was used. The
bulk was used on No. 97w, No. 97e, and No. 6 Highways.
Gravel was placed on many roads throughout the district, a total of 51.7 miles of
this work being done. This included the main district roads, such as Enderby-Mabel
Lake, Trinity Valley, Enderby-Grindrod, Deep Creek, Whitevale, Creighton Valley,
Lumby-Mabel Lake, Vernon-Slocan, Westside, and Commonage, and many of the
attendant side-roads.
Weed-control consisted of mowing and spraying. Up to 290 miles of road shoulders
were mowed, and weed-spraying covered many of the orchard roads and main highways.
Grader patrolling of the gravelled roads was somewhat difficult due to the pressure
of construction work requiring the attendance of the available Government equipment.
However, as a whole, patrolling was satisfactory.
Construction.—Arterial and main road construction in this district reached a peak
volume this year.
The Oyama south and the Oyama north sections of Highway No. 97, totalling 9.2
miles of excellent road, were completed.
On No. 97e a 5.52-mile section from Larkin to Armstrong was reconstructed and
paved, and the 4-mile alternate route through Armstrong was resurfaced. To the north,
5.3 miles of the Grindrod-Sicamous Road was reconstructed. It is considered that this
route is growing in importance in this section of the Province.
Reconstruction of minor roads in the district included the Trinity Valley, Vernon-
Slocan, Enderby-Mabel Lake, Old Kamloops, Bella Vista, Tronson, Westside, and Lake-
shore Roads.   There was a total of 37 miles of this class of road reconstructed.
Surfacing.—The programme for the year was quite large. There were 10.5 miles
of new plant-mix and 14.9 miles of new road-mix pavements laid, as well as 10.4 miles
of major renewal with plant-mix pavement. In addition, there were 6 miles of road
surface treated.
Snow-removal and Sanding.—Cost of snow-removal and sanding reached a new
peak, not because of an increased snowfall, but more so because the service was more
extensive than in previous years. Snow-ploughing and sanding on main roads and school-
bus routes was very nearly up to the minute in that most of these routes were ploughed
before 8 a.m. and sanded before noon. It is an estimate that 100,000 machine-miles
were travelled in this winter operation.
Bridges
Only two timber bridges were rebuilt in this year. They were the Horner and
Tucker Bridges.   Both bridges are on minor roads.
Bridge Elimination.—This programme included the replacement of the Hines Creek
Bridge on the Vernon-Slocan Road with a 12-foot 4-inch by 7-foot 9-inch by 90-foot-long
multi-plate pipe arch. Another pipe of the same type, measuring 9 feet 6 inches by 6 feet
5 inches by 50 feet long, was used to replace the Reserve on the Goose Lake Road.
Remarks
In general the 1956-57 fiscal year was one of much progress in the district. o

REVELSTOKE DISTRICT
__^
Roads
Maintenance.—The heaviest snowfall of recorded history fell during 1955-56.
Regardless of this, there was little damage caused by the spring run-off. Erosion along
the banks of the Columbia was less than usual. This was followed by a very dry summer.
The result of the prolonged dry spell caused some very disagreeable road conditions, particularly on the Big Bend Highway and the Trans-Canada Highway west of Revelstoke.
The calcium chloride programme was somewhat disappointing, prolonged dry
weather conditions being chiefly responsible. Frost damage was fairly heavy, and a ban
period of almost a month was necessary to protect the highways from overloads.
Work on heavy construction projects on the Big Bend, the Trans-Canada, and the
Okanagan-Sicamous south continued to plague motorists, although delays were kept to
a minimum, and very little annoyance was expressed by travellers.
Heavy fall rains enabled motor-graders to put all gravel roads in fair shape before
the first snowfall. This, with the completion of Project No. 559, Project No. 549, and
the Mara Lake Project No. 556, allowed motorists far better winter travelling conditions
than heretofore.
The Big Bend closure on November 1st was relaxed by order so that maintenance
service could be extended throughout this year to a distance of Mile 42 north of Revelstoke.   Winter maintenance of this road is difficult because of heavy snowfall in the area.
Construction and Reconstruction.—Projects completed during the year were Project
No. 542 on the Big Bend Highway from Revelstoke to 3 miles north. This project leaves
a continuous maintenance job of cleaning up after a very heavy slide section in the canyon
area 2Vi miles north of Revelstoke.
Project No. 549, the Clanwilliam Overpass Bridge and the approaches, was completed in October, 1956. Guard-rail for this project and Project No. 556 was installed.
Surfacing gravel was placed on both projects before winter.
On Project No. 559, the overhead crossing at Three Valley east, the contractor
completed the approaches and commenced work on the structure. Winter conditions
prevented good concrete construction and the job closed down in November. Work commenced again at the end of March, 1957.    Completion is expected late in 1957.
On Project No. 184, Craigellachie Overhead Crossing, work commenced in December on the approaches and continued throughout the winter. Work on the structure
itself commenced when spring load-limit restrictions were lifted. Completion is expected
in 1957.
District forces completed a shoulder-widening job on Project No. 749, Malakwa
to Craigellachie. Further to this job, paving was completed by the Commonwealth Construction Company late in October.
District forces completed work on Project No. 556, Mara Lake Road south of
Sicamous, on the North Okanagan Highway. Inability to gain roadway on several sections bordering the lake caused a reduction of road width standard and extreme curvature
at several points. Heavy rock work was experienced throughout the 7.3 miles of this
project.    Surfacing gravel was placed before winter.
District forces completed reconstruction and paving on Mile 5 of the Revelstoke-
Arrowhead Road. The loop road, No. 10, south of Revelstoke, was also rebuilt and
paved with road mix.
Hard Surfacing.—Paving was completed on No. 10 south, known as the loop, for
a distance of 5.5 miles and 2 miles of No. 5 Arrowhead-Revelstoke—1 mile at Mile 3
and 1 mile at Mile 5. Suburb roads paved by road mix were as follows: Extensive
patching at several points east of Sicamous, three patches repaired, and about IVi miles
of pavement.   This was done out of asphalt-mulch stock-pile. J 46 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
Four miles of the Trans-Canada Highway were paved, by contract, between Craigellachie and Malakwa. This was a hot-mix job, and asphalt was laid on top of existing
pavement.   This project, No. 749, is standing up very well.
Road mix for this district is not too satisfactory. Very high humidity, with cold
nights, makes good results a matter of chance. This, coupled with uninsulated cars, no
storage facilities, and the problem of maintaining the required temperature of the oil,
sometimes results in jobs of varying calibre. A rainy, cold period, such as frequently
occurs here, will upset the best-laid plans for laying road mix.
Flood Damage
Considering the record snowfall during the winter of 1955-56, a remarkably small
amount of damage was caused.    Principal reason for this was the slow spring break-up.
Ferries
Maintaining steady service throughout the year causes considerable strain on everyone concerned.
Varying water conditions on the Columbia necessitate a high degree of attention
by ferry personnel, bridge crews, and mechanical support by our repair-shop crews.
The Twelve Mile Ferry came through the winter of 1956-57 without damage. The
district bridge crew completely rebuilt the east bank wharf. This was done during the
low-water period between January and March.
Repair work was done to the protecting log-booms at the Twenty-four Mile Ferry.
This ferry also survived the winter without damage.
Blasting of ice channels was carried out intermittently at both Twelve and Twenty-
four Mile crossings. Traffic has been maintained at both ferries throughout the year
with only minor interruptions to service.
Service on the Arrow Lakes was maintained to a fairly high degree, with short
periods of delay brought on by mechanical and weather conditions. It was found necessary to hire a relief ferry to aid during the breakdown periods. Considerable difficulty
was experienced trying to maintain a channel through the ice of the upper arm of the
lake, it being necessary to operate twenty-four hours a day during cold snaps in January
and February.
This operation caused a reduction in service to Nakusp. The effect was of minor
consequence because of low traffic rate during the winter months between Nakusp and
Arrowhead.
Reduction of runs from Arrowhead to Nakusp and cessation of service to Beaton
during the severe ice conditions expected during December to March would cut costs
considerably.
To assist this proposed change, a winter road link-up is being surveyed between
Galena Bay and Armstrong Lake on the Beaton-Nelson Road.
Bridges
New bridge completed was the Clanwilliam Overpass, 8.8 miles west of Revelstoke.
The two new bridges started were at Craigellachie, 31.6 miles west of Revelstoke,
and at Three Valley east, 13 miles west of Revelstoke. These are both railway overpasses.
A Bailey bridge was recommended for Carnes Creek, a Big Bend bridge. This will
be installed during the 1957 programme.
The bridge-elimination project for the Fish River canyon at Cambourne was cancelled, and repairs only were made to the existing structure.
Our bridge crew was on loan to the Merritt District, when a structure at Sawmill
Creek, on the Trans-Canada Highway near Kamloops, collapsed without warning. REGIONAL REPORTS I 47
Bridge conditions throughout the district warranted that a stepped-up programme
of repair be maintained for a few years until more permanent-type bridges are installed.
Eliminations by pipe culverts are not desirable in most cases because of the precipitous hillsides, and the resulting need of structure openings that will carry debris of all
kinds through during flash floods and normal spring run-off conditions.
Snowfall
The first fall of snow came to stay the first week of December. Being ready, the
district suffered little inconvenience, such as is usually experienced with the approach of
winter.
Snowfall was about average, and ranged between 110 inches at Sicamous and 286
inches at Trout Lake.
An added problem was instructions to keep open 42 miles of the Big Bend Highway.
This was done at considerable added cost.   This road is in a very heavy snowfall area.
The loan of a large Sicard rotary snow-blower from the Penticton District was found
to be of tremendous help in reducing our snow-removal costs and giving better service to
travellers.
Ice conditions on the Upper Arrow Lakes caused the opening of the Beaton-Gerrard-
Nelson Road to be opened early in April. This was necessary to assure access for the
residents of the area between Gerrard and Cambourne, anticipating failure of ferry service.
Rotary-type snow-blowers are an advantage for clearing roads after the first early
winter slide danger is past. These rotary-type ploughs are fast and efficient, and with
competent operators can give far better service and economy than any other method.
Sanding of roads is a minor requirement in this district. Hills and bad corners
require some attention by sanding crews.
Surveys
During the year, engineering surveys were continued on the Mara Lake part of the
Okanagan Highway south of Sicamous. This work was completed this year to the
surfacing stage.
Surveys were also made for the Trans-Canada Highway road-widening programme
between Craigellachie and Malakwa.
Numerous inspections and surveys of subdivisions, land applications, and bridge-
site were made throughout the district. Some line was run for a rock project near
Arrowhead.
A reconnaissance was made between Galena Bay and Armstrong Lake. This was
made to discover snowfall conditions, slide potential, etc. The crew walked through on
snowshoes in February. The report was very encouraging, and it was assumed to be
entirely feasible to build an adequate road to connect Galena Bay to the Beaton-Nelson
Road.
SALMON ARM DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout the
year. Extensive work was undertaken improving secondary and side roads by widening,
ditching, and gravelling. Old wooden culverts were replaced with metal or concrete pipe.
Applications of calcium chloride were used on main highways, townsite streets, and some
side-roads where traffic is considered heavy in thickly populated areas.

Snow-removal.—All roads were kept open, and considerably more sanding was
found necessary than in previous years due to public expecting improved services. On
instructions we did not attempt to keep private driveways and lanes open, except emergency cases only. The average total snowfall on lower levels for the district, which
commenced November 1st, 1956, and ended March 20th, 1957, was 98 inches.
Bridges
Five bridges, totalling in length 276 lineal feet, were replaced by culverts and fill.
The following four bridges were renewed: Silver Creek (No. 13), Boulder Creek (No.

Maintenance.—A considerable amount of work was done on the Princton-Five
Mile Road in widening and improving of grade.
A total of 25 miles of road-mix pavement was placed on orchard roads.
Hope-Princeton Highway had a concentration of work on the widening of shoulders,
especially on long hills, with a view to construction of a third lane. A 6-inch course of
gravel followed by a plant-mix pavement was placed on a 20-mile section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway from Allison Pass east.
Twelve miles of plant-mix pavement was contracted on the Princeton-Merritt Road.
Five miles of plant mix was contracted on Highway No. 97 from Okanagan Falls
south.
Highway No. 97 was raised by district forces along Skaha Lake beach section and
continued 1 mile north, and plant-mix pavement applied.
Reconstruction.—Reconstruction was carried out on 5 miles of Richter Pass Road
No. 89 and 6 miles of Princeton-Merritt Road No. 72.
Snow-removal.—A mild winter was experienced throughout the area. A few slides
occurred. An attempt is being made to improve both the sand-pits and the method of
expediting faster loading of our trucks.
Bridges
Bridge No. 37, a reinforced concrete-steel stringer structure over Ellis Creek in
Penticton, was completed. A bridge of similar construction was erected for the City of
Penticton on Ellis Street over Penticton Creek by our forces.
Extensive repair work was done on a large wooden Howe-truss bridge crossing the
Similkameen River to the Chopaka Indian Reserve. The piling had failed almost completely on one end and was replaced by steel piling.

SOUTH OKANAGAN DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Improvements were again carried out in alignment and grades of
local roads and the policy of widening while grading was continued.   Particular attention J 52 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
was paid to drainage, with several carloads of culvert pipe being used for this purpose.
Signs were satisfactorily maintained. Many local roads were regravelled, and the weed-
control programme, which was instituted last year, was continued with varying degrees
of success. Paved roads were generally kept in good condition, with two patching crews
being employed almost continuously.
Reconstruction.—Some corners were widened and alignment generally improved
on the Joe Rich Road by day-labour, and considerable clearing done. Approximately
30 miles of orchard roads were reconstructed prior to paving.
The contract for the reconstruction of 9.46 miles of the Okanagan Highway from
Peachland south was completed, as was the 0.5 mile southerly at the north boundary of
the South Okanagan Electoral District. A contract was awarded for the reconstruction
of the Powers Creek section of the Okanagan Highway, a distance of 1.2 miles, 7 miles
south of Kelowna.   This contract is approximately 75 per cent completed.
Surfacing.—Fourteen miles of orchard roads were paved with asphalt road mix by
district forces. The 9.46 miles of the Okanagan Highway in the vicinity of Peachland
and the 0.5 mile of the Okanagan Highway in the vicinity of Winfield were paved by
contract.
Snow-removal.—A normal winter was experienced, with probably little more icing
conditions than are normal. However, 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. The bridge over
Mill Creek on the Sexsmith Road was reconstructed by district forces, eliminating a
7-foot culvert which was inadequate. Bear Creek Bridge on the Westside Road was
also reconstructed by district forces.
Ferries
Traffic increased over 1955-56 by approximately 10 per cent. Barring a few minor
tie-ups, traffic was moved in a speedy and orderly manner during the summer rush. The
M.V. " Pendozi " was taken out of the water for overhaul.
Government Buildings and Grounds
The weigh-scales at Rutland and the interior of the garages at Westbank and Kelowna were painted during the year under report.
Miscellaneous
Despite a very high potential, the spring run-off was orderly and caused little damage.
YALE DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance work was carried out on all roads in the district. Owing to an increase in logging and mining activities in the area, the demand for
better maintenance on side-roads and trails has increased steadily. Some minor improvements on various side-roads, such as cutting off blind corners and strengthening weak
sections by gravelling, were carried out.
Major Reconstruction and Improvements. — A heavy reconstruction programme
aimed at completing the Merritt-Kamloops and Merritt-Princeton Highways was undertaken, and at the end of the fiscal year had been completed except for paving of a 3.5- REGIONAL REPORTS J 53
mile section of the Merritt-Princeton Highway and a 10-mile section of the Merritt-
Kamloops Highway.
It is expected to have both these sections completed during the summer of 1957.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Approximately 26.5 miles of bituminous plant-mix surfacing was completed on the Merritt-Kamloops and Merritt-Princeton Highways.
Nearly 7 miles of road mix on side-roads at Hope and on the Spences Bridge road
was undertaken.
Buildings
The new buildings and yard at Boston Bar were completed, and equipment and staff
were moved in during the early fall.
Bridges
Routine maintenance was carried out on bridges throughout the district, with the
majority of the work concentrated on the Fraser Canyon bridges. Sawmill Creek Bridge
collapsed in August and had to be replaced with a temporary structure until the new
highway has been completed.
Ferries
Traffic has again increased on the North Bend Aerial Ferry, and the main cables had
to be replaced in November.
The Lytton Ferry operated satisfactorily, but major repairs will be necessary to the

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.
On the Big Bend section of the Trans-Canada Highway considerable improvements
were undertaken in the form of replacing existing culverts which had either collapsed or
were plugged and new culverts placed in all drained locations. Considerable gravelling
was undertaken in sections where required; this was due to increased heavy traffic, which
was brought about because of logging operations. Widening and ditching were done
where required and where permitted by financial appropriations. Chemical treatment in
the form of calcium chloride was placed on all sections where required during the month
of July, which made most sections dust-free for the balance of summer. Constant grader
patrol was maintained on this section of highway and alternated with grading of
Kootenay-Columbia Highway.
The Golden east to Park Gate section of the Trans-Canada Highway required considerable work to be undertaken to clear mud and rock slides during the spring, also a
lot of snow-slides were encountered on this section of highway. These came during the
months of December, February, and March. This section from Six Mile or Park Bridge
was very difficult to keep clear of snow-slides, mainly due to condition of old bridge
structures, which would not enable heavy equipment to travel over them, also concrete
piers and girders which were placed for new bridge structure.    Daily inspections were J 54 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
undertaken throughout the winter months to assure that all culverts were clear and free
and to attend the icing and snow-slide conditions which existed. The trouble of maintenance should be improved by August of this year, when new bridge structures and the
section which is under contract are completed.
Continuous maintenance in the form of grading, ditching, and replacing of culverts
was undertaken on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway, and minor gravelling was done
where necessary during the spring break-up. Spring break-up on this highway was considerable and required a lot of maintenance. Sections where dirt-slides were encountered
were cleaned with shovel or loaders. From Mile 71.5 to Mile 75.6, shoulders were
widened, gravelled, and culverts extended. This work was only partially completed; the
balance will be undertaken this summer. Portions that have been done have improved
the road considerably. From Mile 69.6 to Mile 72.2, completion of reconstruction was
undertaken and a black-top surface was placed. From Mile 15.5 to Mile 18.5, crushed
gravel was placed on this section, which had been reconstructed in 1952-53. Mile 18.5
to Mile 22.5 was reconstructed and road completed for crushed gravel. Mile 22.5 to
Mile 28.5 was partially reconstructed; clearing and fencing were completed on this
section, with approximately 2.5 miles of road completed for gravelling. Mile 56.08 to
Mile 57.75 was under reconstruction by contract and only partially completed.
Mile 57.75 to Mile 61.6 was completed by contract, and a plant-mix pavement was
placed. Plant-mix paving was also placed on Mile 61.6 to Mile 65.9 and Mile 71.3 to
Mile 75.6.
Spring break-up on highways was severe, which entailed considerable work and
expenditure of funds.
Flooding was encountered in Kicking Horse River at Golden, Bugaboo Creek at
Spillimacheen, Toby and Horsethief Creeks in Athalmer-Wilmer area, Dutch Creek, and
other smaller creeks.
On Arterial Highway 189r, Village of Invermere, completion of paving was done,
and Waterway Drive (No. 337) from the end of arterial highway to Westside Road was
raised, widened, and gravelled, and culverts were undertaken, but not totally completed.
Sanborn Road (No. 58) from Mile 0 to Mile 1.5 was raised, widened, and gravelled,
and culverts were placed where required, also clearing. Street-paving was undertaken
in the town of Golden (2.1 miles), Athalmer to Wilmer (2.8 miles), Windermere (1 mile),
and Canal Flats (0.5 mile). This work was done by district forces and road-mixed
with graders.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was above normal in all sections of the district. Total
fall in Golden area was 116 inches, and Athalmer area was 58 inches. Icing conditions
were generally average in all sections of the district; considerable sanding was required,
and night-shift work was undertaken when required to keep condition of road as safe
as possible for traffic. This district had two fatalities of workmen employed, one of which
happened while on the job. Balance of accidents or injuries were generally of minor
nature.
Bridges
Minor repairs and inspection of all bridges were carried out in the district. Reconstruction of Big Foster (No. 250), Cariboo (No. 252), Klahanie (No. 106), Oster (No.
275), Shell (No. 248), and the balance of reconstruction of Parson (No. 226) was
undertaken. Progress was made on Yoho Bridge (No. 212), and Park Bridge (No. 213)
on Trans-Canada Highway was undertaken by contract. Jones Bridge (No. 57) was
eliminated, and culvert and fill was placed. REGIONAL REPORTS I 55

the Port Crawford area, and Reeves MacDonald Mine Road.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Surfacing was done by the Surfacing Branch of the Department of Highways on the Creston-Porthill Highway from the bottom of Archibalds Hill
to the border at Porthill, a distance of 6.1 miles.
Starting at the junction with the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, the Vernon-
South Slocan Highway was paved north a distance of 4.5 miles. It is anticipated the
remaining portion to the district boundary will be completed in 1957.
Resurfacing was done on the Creston-Erickson section of the Southern Transprovincial Highway for a distance of 2 miles.
Maintenance.—Due to the nature of the early spring run-off, considerable damage
was done to ditches, culverts, and fills, which required considerable maintenance to repair
and replace.
Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads; that is, regular grading, mowing,
dust elimination, signing, etc.
Snow-removal.—Although the snowfall was considerably less than that experienced
the previous winter the conditions were such that sanding and ploughing operations were
required continuously.
All roads were kept open during the winter months.
Flood Protection
Although extensive flooding was experienced throughout the district, the channel
work required was at a minimum. Normal flood protection was carried out on all stream-
channels and bridges.

ROSSLAND-TRAIL DISTRICT
Roads
Construction and Reconstruction.—Work which was commenced on the west end of
the Rossland Arterial and the Genelle Bluffs section of the Castlegar-Trail Highway was
completed in May, 1956. Reconstruction at Genelle Bluffs was undertaken in conjunction with the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada because of the
proximity of their transmission-lines from the Kootenay River power plants. To complete
the work on the Rossland Arterial, Davis Street Bridge was replaced by a 15-foot-
diameter multi-plate pipe arch to be utilized as an under-pass for one-way traffic.
The road between Trail and Casino was reconstructed and widened over a distance
of 5 miles.   Considerable improvements to grade were also carried out.
The Robson-Deer Park Road was reconstructed and widened over a distance of
6.5 miles between Robson and the Columbia River overflow bridge. This work was
carried out by day-labour and Departmental and hired equipment. Irving Creek Bridge
was replaced by a multi-plate pipe arch. It was originally intended to replace the 490-
foot-long trestle at the Columbia River overflow with culvert and fill, but because of
a serious foundation failure the fill collapsed. Subsequent testing of the subsoil indicated
that it would not be advisable to rebuild the fill at that location. Work on a new pile
trestle bridge considerably shorter than the old one was commenced late in February.
A road 0.3 mile long was built connecting the Columbia Gardens Road with the
Fruitvale-Salmo Highway. Part of the project involved the building of a 60-foot-long
pile trestle bridge across Beaver Creek.
Minor Projects.—Two bin-type retaining-walls were erected on the arterial highway
through Trail at the east end of Columbia Avenue. One wall, 180 feet long and averaging
9 feet in height, was installed to replace an old timber cribbing. The other wall, 230 feet
long and 5.5 feet in height, was installed to retain a sloughing sand-bank.
Several narrow rock corners on the Rossland-Cascade Highway between Rossland
and Big Sheep Creek were widened.    Some gravelling was also carried out.
Asphalt Surfacing.—The following roads were surfaced with hot plant mix: Waneta
Highway, 3.8 miles; Castlegar-Trail at Genelle Bluffs, 1 mile; Rossland Arterial at
Black Bear, 0.5 mile; and Trail Arterial (Bay Avenue, etc.), 0.6 mile.
Maintenance of Roads.—All roads were maintained during the year, and considerable gravelling was done on the following: Hudu Creek, one-half mile; Faulkners, one-
half mile;  and Fruitvale side-roads, 1 mile.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall throughout the winter was average. All roads were kept
snow-ploughed and considerable sanding was done. J 62 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
Castlegar Ferry
The Castlegar Ferry was maintained during the year and continued to give good

across Beaver Creek on the new Fruitvale Cut-off Road between the Columbia Gardens
Road and the Trail-Salmo Highway.
Work commenced on the renewal of the Columbia River overflow bridge on the
Robson-Deer Park Road. The original pile trestle structure was 490 feet long, but
because of realignment and considerable work at the approaches the new structure will
be 350 feet long.
Three bridges were replaced by culvert and fill, as follows: Irving Creek (No. 12),
Little Sheep Creek (No. 4), and Davis Street (No. 6). All were replaced by large multi-
plate pipe arches.

Spruce Creek Road received a renewal of gravel surfacing.
Bridges.—All bridges in the area were checked, and any preventive maintenance
necessary was carried out.
Snow-removal.—The winter snowfall, amounting to 76 inches, was dealt with
successfully. Additional snow-ploughing equipment in the area enabled us to complete
the ploughing with a minimum of delay.
Stikine-Telegraph Creek
Roads.—A half-mile section of the Dease Lake Road through the Tahltan rock
section was widened. Other sections of this road were widened and gravelled, and
a considerable amount of new culverts installed. An emergency-landing strip for light
aircraft was constructed at Dease Lake by district forces.
Bridges.—The Eighteen Mile Bridge on the Dease Lake Road was completely
rebuilt.   Numerous other bridges in the area were repaired.
Snow-removal.—The winter snowfall amounted to 62 inches, with severe glacier
conditions.   All necessary roads were maintained open throughout the winter.

McDame Creek Road was maintained open daily throughout the winter.
CARIBOO  (NORTH) DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—Road maintenance was carried out as required, and 110,000 cubic
yards of gravel was added to various side-roads and to the Cariboo Highway. A screening plant was set up and a coat of screened gravel was added to the North Cariboo
Highway. Where possible, grader ditches were scraped out, and approximately 8,000
lineal feet of culvert pipe placed during the year in an effort to provide drainage. The
rainfall in the last few years has more than doubled, and maintenance is becoming more
and more difficult due to lack of drainage and gravel and the tremendous increase in
traffic.
Day-labour Projects.—The big project was Barkerville Road, where 7.4 miles of
road was relocated and rebuilt. This work was carried out between Mile 11 and Mile 25
by choosing the curves or grades which had given the most difficulty in the past. At the
south end of the Fraser Road, 4.6 miles were reconstructed and 14 miles gravelled,
providing an all-weather road to Macalister Ferry. Narcosli Creek was diverted, and
some work was done on drainage to prevent slides on Narcosli Hill. Three miles were
reconstructed and gravelled on the Quesnel-Blackwater Road at a point 20 miles northeast of Quesnel, and several low spots on the Quesnel-Nazko Road, which were trouble
spots each spring, were lifted and gravelled. On flood relief a new road was located and
built from Likely to Quesnel Forks.
Contracts.—Three contractors were busy and 22.56 miles practically completed.
The contractors had to leave the final completion of Airport-Cottonwood River Road
for next year.
Paving.—The paving of the South Cariboo Highway was completed as far north as
Dog Prairie, leaving approximately 10 miles of gravel up to Quesnel.
Snow-removal.—There was considerable snowfall and continued cold spells. The
ploughing of private roads was discontinued. Snow-removal continues to be more
difficult as the travelling public demands more and better service. A total of 594 miles
of road was kept open at an average cost of $185.31 per mile, including sanding.
Bridges
One new bridge was built at Bouchie Lake and the necessary repairs made on others.
The Quesnel River Bridge was redecked.
Ferries
The usual maintenance was carried out on the ferries. The new site for Gravelle
Ferry was chosen, and preliminary work was started on the towers and the ferryman's
house.
Buildings
A new aluminium roof was put on the garage at Quesnel. J 64 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
FORT GEORGE DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—A reasonably good spring and summer were experienced throughout
this district, enabling considerable minor reconstruction and improvements. The John
Hart Highway was subject to extreme loading due to the Pacific Great Eastern Railway
and pipe-line projects under construction. This added the need for extra maintenance
to both roads and bridges. The close proximity of the highway and P.G.E. locations
offered some concern from a drainage view-point, not only for this season, but for some
seasons to come. The Cariboo and Northern Trans-Provincial Highways were maintained as well as possible, while the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Prince
George is quite inadequate, and very shortly a major improvement programme will have
to be undertaken.
Reconstruction.—Day-labour projects progressed with the minimum of delay. These
consisted of a section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway east of McBride, in
preparation of base of several sections for paving, and a number of smaller projects on
secondary roads. This programme of improvements to secondary roads was in great
need, and it is to be hoped it may be continued at the rate of a few miles per year.
All secondary roads have become obsolete and will require reconstruction.
Under contract, a portion of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway west of Prince
George was completed to full standard, and the reconstruction of the Cariboo Highway
on the new location was started.
Surfacing.—The Queens Street cemetery road through South Fort George was paved
in its entirety, a distance of 2 miles. A link in the Cariboo Highway from the airport to
the 9-mile corner, a distance of 3.7 miles, was brought up to a standard base and paved.
Several recap jobs were undertaken on the John Hart Highway, First Avenue, and
Cariboo Highway.
There is considerable evidence of the John Hart Highway pavement from Mile 0 to
Mile 28 breaking down, this being accelerated by the heavy loading, and probably due
to inadequate design and base.
Snow-removal.—A lighter than average snowfall was experienced, but milder
weather created an extreme ice condition throughout a good portion of the winter.
Sanding crews were placed on a round-the-clock basis, and nightly patrols covered the
Pine Pass area. Snow drifting was light and particularly evident in the McBride area,
where a high grading programme on some of the most affected areas had been undertaken.
For the first winter the Robson-Yellowhead section of the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway was kept open. Steep grades were lessened or by-passed, and widening of the
narrower sections permitted snow equipment to operate in this area. It is found that it
is not a particularly heavy snow belt, but that the standard of the road has not permitted
snow-removal in prior years.
Bridges
Several light structures were rebuilt during the year, including Gravel Creek,
Beaverdam, and Sinclair on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Prince
George, the Stinson on the Wright Creek Road, as well as several others on minor roads.
Considerable maintenance was required on the Fraser River Bridge at Prince George,
and still the surface remains unsatisfactory. Considerable skin decking was carried out
on bridges on the John Hart Highway.
Ferries
The Isle Pierre Ferry operated successfully on an all-year basis; however, the
Hansard Ferry was only operable from May to September, due to ice in the spring and
J REGIONAL REPORTS I 65
sand-bars at low water in the fall.   The towers of the Hansard Ferry were in an advance
stage of rot and would not be usable for another year.
OMINECA DISTRICT (EAST)
Roads
General Maintenance.—Maintenance was carried out throughout the district in the
usual manner. A very excellent year was experienced in that only the normal amount
of rain fell during the season.
Reconstruction.—The summer of 1956 was, beyond any doubt, the greatest year for
reconstruction that we have ever had.
Eighteen miles of reconstruction was carried out on the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway between Beaumont's Crossing and Endako. All of this section was brought
up to the standards as set down for this trans-provincial highway. Base material was
laid at the rate of 20,000 tons per mile over a 15-mile section of the same road between
Mile 1 westerly from Vanderhoof to Mile 16.
Ten miles of this section were paved during the year; 2 miles on the Vanderhoof-
Stuart Lake Road were reconstructed in the vicinity of Fort St. James; 9 miles were
reconstructed and gravelled on the Fort St. James-Germansen Landing Road; 4 miles
were reconstructed and gravelled on the Pinchi Lake Road; 5 miles were reconstructed
and gravelled on the Vanderhoof-Sturgeon Point Road; and approximately 30 miles of
farm and side roads were given a heavy lift of gravel.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was slightly below normal for the year. In all, 548 miles
of road was kept open at an average cost of $56.28 per mile.
Bridges
There was no major bridge work carried out. Some eighteen bridges were repaired
during the year.
Bridge Replacement.—A total of four bridges were replaced by installing metal
culverts.
Ferries
We have no ferries operating in this district at the present time.
OMINECA DISTRICT (WEST)
Roads
Maintenance.—A moderate spring break-up of roads was experienced throughout
the district so that early maintenance repairing frost-boils was not extreme and an early
start in reshaping the gravel roads was possible. The absence of frost-boils was partially
due to the fact that some of the most frost-susceptible sections of road had been reconstructed the previous year. As the summer remained quite dry, district forces were able
to do a considerable amount of ditch maintenance on the low-standard roads. A gravelling programme to repair poor sections of road throughout the district was carried out
with good results.
Construction and Reconstruction.—On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway 18.8
miles of road was rebuilt to standard, and 37 miles of this highway was prepared for
black-topping by laying an 18-inch lift of pit-run base material. Seventeen miles of
plant-mix pavement was laid west of Burns Lake. Sections of road on Eakin Settlement
and North Francois were rebuilt to standard. A major ditching and gravelling programme
was carried out in the Round Lake area.
Eleven miles of new road was constructed from Cheslatta Settlement to Cheslatta
Lake to give access to settlers in that area as their original access was flooded out by
3  REGIONAL REPORTS J 67
the Aluminum Company of Canada's new spillway system from Skins Lake. Four bridges
were eliminated and replaced by culvert and fill at Noralee and on the North Francois
Road.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was below average throughout the winter, but icing conditions were more severe. As a result, snow-removal costs were about the same due to
the heavy cost of sanding.
Bridges
One new bridge was built on Wakefield Road by district forces. Major bridges at
Telkwa, Houston, and Burns Lake were completed or were in the process of being built
by contract.
District bridge crews were busy throughout the year redecking and repairing substructures of several bridges throughout the district. The major job of this programme
was at the Quick Bridge across the Bulkley River, where a new longitudinal deck was
installed and considerable repair on the south approach bents was accomplished.
Ferries
The Francois Lake Ferry, M.V. " Jacob Henkel," carried out its schedule through
the navigation season. The ferry was forced to cease operations on January 12th by
heavy ice. During the tie-up period, crews were kept busy in engine overhaul, superstructure painting, repairs, and ice-cutting around the approaches. Also during the
tie-up a new deck was laid on the Southbank Ferry approach.
PEACE RIVER NORTH DISTRICT
The Peace River District was divided into two separate districts, effective April 1 st,
1956, and a new district office established at Fort St. John. The district office was set
up in rented accommodation at Fort St. John and later was moved to the new Government Building constructed at this location. A considerable amount of organization was
necessary in setting up the new office and in establishing a new yard and equipment-shed,
together with the necessary equipment. Considerable difficulty was experienced in obtaining staff both for the office and the outside crews; however, this was accomplished with
the minimum of delay.
Land was obtained in Fort St. John and a new four-bay equipment-shed constructed
by district forces.
Roads
A heavy day-labour construction programme was completed, during which 59 miles
of construction and reconstruction was completed, plus 43.5 miles of gravelling. Included
in the above programme was a new road, 6 miles in length, to connect the settlement
of Montney direct with the Alaska Highway. This road, running westward from
Montney, has proven of great value to the residents of the area.
A 10-mile section of the Fort St. John-Alberta Boundary Road was reconstructed.
This main highway carries an increasing volume of traffic.
The arterial highways in Fort St. John were reconstructed, and under-drainage, also
curb and gutter, installed throughout, amounting to 2 miles. This work was under contract, supervised by district forces. These streets were brought up to a standard ready
for paving. The Airport Road was reconstructed and gravelled, ready for paving next
fiscal year.
The other construction and gravelling completed were spread throughout the district,
one of the projects being north at Fort Nelson, where 1 mile of new street was constructed. A 7-mile section of new road was constructed from Umbach to Prespatou,
north of the Peace River Block survey. This work was difficult due to the isolated
location.
A heavy snowfall was dealt with successfully. J 68 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57
Bridges
The construction of a new bridge over the Beatton River on the Fort St. John-
Alberta Boundary Road was started, and the concrete piers completed. High water
caused the truss work to be abandoned until next fiscal year. A very satisfactory job
was accomplished on the piers, and the approaches were completed except for surface
gravel. Winter temperatures of 40 degrees below zero were encountered while constructing the piers.
Two new trestle bridges were completed by district forces at Roseland Creek and
Stoddard Creek, also four bridges were completely reconstructed—namely, Deep Creek,
Evans, Good, and Johnson.
Ferries
The Hudson Hope Ferry was in operation throughout the summer months.
PEACE RIVER SOUTH DISTRICT
Roads
Maintenance.—The maintenance of the roads generally was made more difficult
than usual by the terrific increase of traffic due to pipe-line and railway construction and
oil exploration in the area, together with an unusually severe spring break-up and heavy
June rains. On the John Hart Highway and Pouce Coupe-Alberta Boundary Road it
was necessary to double-shift graders and carry out heavy gravelling projects. A stabilization programme was carried out on the Boundary Road, which was fairly successful
in spite of the subgrade. On the John Hart Highway hand clearing of brush supplemented
the extensive chemical spray programme for weed and brush control, which covered some
400 miles of district roads.
New Construction.—The new section of the John Hart Highway, 11.2 miles long,
from Arras to Dawson Creek was completed and paved by contractors under the
Construction Branch.
District forces built 8.25 miles of new road in small extensions and connecting links.
Reconstruction.—A total of 43.5 miles of district roads were high graded and
brought to a standard suitable for gravelling. This work was mainly on school-bus routes
and main feeder roads through Sunset Prairie, Bessborough, Tomslake, along Moberly
Lake, and the Doe River-Clayhurst Ferry Road. The shortage of suitable gravel within
economical haul distances has forced the district to use crushed sandstone for base-course
material. A primary crusher was used at Doe River and produced adequate material to
provide 20 miles of all-weather road in this area. The whole distance from Dawson
Creek to Clayhurst Ferry through Rolla and Doe River now has gravel subgrade. A total
of 38 miles of previously dirt roads were gravelled.
Snow-removal.—One hundred thousand feet of snow-fence with 30,000 feet of
wooden panels was erected to prevent drifting. Many chinook winds reduced the snow-
ploughing problems but increased the icing greatly, and much more sanding and treatment
of pavement by calcium chloride and sodium chloride was done than in other years.
A Sicard junior rotary snow-plough was received to clear drifts.
Bridges
Replacement.—Seventeen bridges, totalling 1,187 feet in length, were replaced by
culverts and fills. Two of these installations were exceptionally large, one being twin
10-foot-diameter pipes 144 feet long and the other twin 12-foot-diameter pipes, both on
Dawson Creek.
There were no major bridge installations during the year. The main accomplishment
was repairs and painting of all wheel-guards and railings and minor repairs. REGIONAL REPORTS
J 69
Ferries
Clay hurst Ferry.—The river went out in April and small-boat service was in effect
for mail and passengers during the last week in April. Transportation of crude oil from
the Boundary Lake oil-wells to the refinery at Dawson Creek placed a steady and continuous load on the ferry service. To accommodate the smallest possible tank-trucks, it
was necessary to set the load-limit on the scow at 15 tons.
An early freeze-up in October necessitated closing down on October 28th, nearly
a month ahead of normal time. Running ice during a mild spell which followed prevented
resumption of service. Small-boat service was maintained until November 27th. The
Dunvegan Ferry in Alberta ceased operations two days before the Clayhurst Ferry.
SKEENA DISTRICT  (EAST)
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads in the district.
This consisted of regular grading, brushing, and some gravelling.
Construction.—Approximately 15 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
was rebuilt to standard. The Hazelton-Kitwanga Road was completed, making it an
all-weather road. Considerable reconstruction was carried out on the Kispiox Valley
Road. The new Hazelton High Level Road was brought up to standard and, while not
completed, is now greatly improved.
Snow-removal.—All roads in the district were kept open. Snowfall was normal,
but more sanding than usual was necessary.
Bridges
Bridges were maintained in a satisfactory manner. Two wooden King-truss bridges
were constructed—one over Canyon Creek on the Hynes Settlement road, and the other
over Salmon River on the Glen Meadow-Salmon River Road.
Ferries
All ferries operated satisfactorily throughout the year.
Buildings
A five-bay garage-workshop was constructed at New Hazelton and a two-bay shed
at Old Hazelton.   A welding-shop was added to the garage at Smithers. I 70 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1956-57

REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER
The volume of spending on roads, bridges, ferries, etc., for repairs, construction,
and reconstruction continues to maintain a progressive level, as is evidenced by the following pages, which cover the financial report of this Department.
As this is the first year the Department has functioned under the regional office
system, it was considered practical to have my report set out by regions with the respective districts shown thereunder.
