 HIGHWAYS  REPORT
REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, B.C., October 8, 1963.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I submit herewith district reports for the fiscal year 1962/63.
There are 23,513 miles of highway under the jurisdiction of this Department,
comprised of 3,669 miles of trunk highways, 1,574 miles of main highways, and
18,270 miles of other roads. The mileage of classified highways (arterial and secondary) is 743.
The total mileage of roads constructed or reconstructed by day labour was 293.
Improvements or minor betterments were made to 651 miles.
Fifty-two ferries operated under the supervision of the Department. The number of vehicles carried was 2,042,626, and the number of passengers, including
drivers, 5,228,803.
The total expenditure on maintenance of roads, ferries, and bridges was
$17,875,545. Snow-removal costs, included in the above, amounted to $1,812,179.
There were 19,567 miles of road kept open during the winter.
The number of right-of-way settlements negotiated during the year was 537,
at a cost of $1,114,310.
During the 1962 calendar year there were 2,796 subdivisions handled by the
Department, and of these, 464 were adjacent to controlled-access highways. The
number of permits issued for entrances on controlled-access highways was 369, and
for entrances on non-controlled-access highways, 673. There were 2,044 permits
issued for other works on Crown lands.
F. A. MacLean,
Assistant Deputy Minister.

 C 12 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1962/63
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER
Victoria, B.C., October 10, 1963.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—Herewith are submitted reports from the Senior Bridge Engineer, Director of Construction, and Design and Planning Engineer for the fiscal year 1962/63.
Briefly summarizing the activities of the various branches, the total length of
roads constructed or reconstructed by contract was 116 miles, and of this, 18 miles
were on the Trans-Canada Highway.
The paving programme exceeded that of the previous year, there being laid
232 miles of bituminous plant mix and 269 miles of road mix and pulvimix.
The number of bridges and other structures built remained high. At the end
of the year, 43 structures were completed and construction was in progress on 33
others. Structures on the Trans-Canada Highway included in the above were 26
completed and 21 in progress.
The total length of final highway-location surveys completed amounted to 230
miles. The length of office design complete with estimates was 183 miles, included
in which were 3.6 miles of urban street design.
D. D. Godfrey,
Chief Engineer.
  C 14 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1962/63
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
There was no relaxation in the Department's bridge-construction activity during
the year, as is evidenced by a total gross expenditure thereon of approximately $19,-
800,000, compared with $19,750,000 during the previous year. The record shows
43 new or reconstructed structures were completed during the period, while a further
33 structures were under construction at the conclusion of the year.
Of the new structures completed, 26 are located on the Trans-Canada Highway,
as are 21 of those under construction at the end of the year. The completion of the
latter will see the construction of the last of a total of 146 structures built on this
550-mile-long highway, except for the strengthening and widening of a few bridges
built prior to the inception of the Trans-Canada Highway programme. In retrospect, the records show that some $70,000,000 will have been expended on new or
reconstructed structures on this highway under the Trans-Canada Highway Agreement, to which might be added the $22,000,000 cost of the Second Narrows Bridge
in Vancouver. This expenditure is a measure of the magnitude of the task involved in
building the bridges between Victoria and the British Columbia-Alberta Boundary,
in the course of which almost every conceivable kind of challenge was met and overcome by the bridge-builders.
Detailed information of the completed structures and of those under construction are appended, but worthy of special mention are six major river-crossing structures which were completed during the year under review. These are: (1) Alexandra
Bridge, a monumental arch structure carrying the Trans-Canada Highway across the
Fraser River in the Fraser Canyon near Spuzzum; (2) Columbia River Bridge on
the Trans-Canada Highway near Donald; (3) Spences Bridge, carrying the Trans-
Canada Highway over the North Thompson River at Spences Bridge; (4) Paulson
Bridge, a vital link in the Christina Lake-Kinnaird section of the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway; (5) Kootenay River Bridge on the Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway near Creston, which is noteworthy as the first example of the " Stabbogen "
bridge in Western Canada; and (6) Sicamous Narrows Bridge on the Trans-Canada
Highway near Salmon Arm.
The major crossing of the Fraser River near Prince George, destined to carry
the relocated Cariboo Highway in this vicinity, showed steady progress toward early
completion, while near the mouth of the same Fraser River the culminating phase
in the completion of the notable Port Mann Bridge was entered, and the awe-inspiring proportions of this elegant structure began to become apparent.
Reflecting the Department's efforts to provide modern high-speed highway
facilities in the populous Vancouver area, some 31 overpasses, underpasses, and
river-crossing structures were completed or under construction this year on the Deas
Tunnel Throughway, the Burnaby Freeway, and the relocated Trans-Canada Highway between Abbotsford and the Port Mann Bridge. An incidental effect of constructing these high-speed facilities is the need to provide pedestrian overpasses for
cross foot traffic, and the Bridge Branch has developed a unique design of such an
overpass in aluminum, examples of which are serving at several locations on the Deas
Tunnel Throughway and on the Trans-Canada Highway just south of the Pattullo
Bridge.
The challenge presented to the bridge-builders by British Columbia's varied
topography can best be illustrated by brief descriptions of some of the special structures built or building during the year under review. Thus, in the remote North near
Telegraph Creek, crossings over the Tuya and Tahlton Rivers required the design of
 REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
C 15
80-foot-long glue-laminated beams spliced in the middle so as to make it possible to
transport them from Vancouver into this difficult terrain. Again, near Hells Gate,
Fraser Canyon, the Trans-Canada Highway has to be supported across a notorious
slide area, which was achieved by inventing a novel 236-foot reinforced-concrete
tilted-barrel arch retaining structure springing from the solid rock on each side of the
slide. Farther along the Trans-Canada Highway at Anderson River, near Boston
Bar, and at Quartz Creek in the Rogers Pass section, the highway has to be carried in
smooth high-speed curves over deep canyons, thus necessitating the design and construction of unique curved bridges at these locations.
The large volume of bridge design and construction work continued to call for
the retention of private consulting engineers throughout the year to augment the
Bridge Engineer's staff, and it may be noted that the employment of such consultants
demands much attention from the Department's own expert personnel in supervision,
advice, and processing of projects so handled.
Keen competition was exhibited by contractors bidding on bridge projects
throughout the period under review, and construction materials were in plentiful
supply. A description of the many new materials and techniques being developed
in the bridge-construction field would demand too much space, but mention may be
made of the new high-strength steels, the increased use of welding, the adoption of
the orthotropic steel deck and the " Stabbogen " arch for bridges, the increasing use
of prestressed concrete, the use of light-weight concrete, the remarkable development in the application of the epoxy resins, the structural use of aluminum, the production of better paints, and the development of glue-laminated timber construction.
Despite the large programme of new bridge construction there remain in use a
great number of older timber bridges, and our district forces continue with their
commendable efforts to keep these in service until the day arrives when they can be
replaced with modern structures.
At the conclusion of the year the bridge-design programme was orientated toward bridge construction on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, the North
Thompson Highway, the Kootenay-Columbia Highway, the Cassiar-Stewart Highway, and on certain important, if isolated, bridge projects throughout the Province.

  REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION C 27
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION (CONTRACTS)
The mileage of highway completed by contract on all highways was 116, of
which 9 miles were multi-lane (four lanes). The Trans-Canada Highway construction and reconstruction included in these mileages was 18 miles (6 miles being
multi-lane).
Grading excavation in all contracts totalled 12,661,916 cubic yards of solid
rock and other materials. The total for the Trans-Canada Highway included in this
quantity was 4,508,146.
Three very important new routes were completed and opened this year—
the Rogers Pass route of the Trans-Canada Highway, the Deas Tunnel Throughway
to the United States Border, and the Christina Lake-Kinnaird section of the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway. Work has been in progress on all these routes for
several years.
Construction is continuing on four other important new routes—Vancouver
to Mount Lehman Interchange on the Trans-Canada Highway (multi-lane), the
Salmo-Creston section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, the Tabor Lake-
Lamming Mills section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between Prince
George and McBride, the Stewart-Dease Lake section of the Stewart-Watson Lake
Road, and the Rossland-Sheep Lake Cut-off.
By the end of the fiscal year the equivalent of 28 miles of a total of 35 miles
were completed on the Trans-Canada Highway section, and 38 miles of the total 42
miles were completed on the Salmo-Creston section. Tabor Lake to Lamming Mills
is 112 miles in total distance, and in this section 36 miles are under construction and
an additional 26 miles cleared. The actual mileage completed is 24 miles, and the
remaining gap not yet started is 50 miles. In the Rossland-Sheep Lake Cut-off, 5
miles of the total 17 miles have been completed.
Progress on the Stewart-Dease Lake section is as follows: Stewart to Mile 26
completed (partly by day labour); Mile 26 to Mile 58 (32 miles) in progress, the
equivalent of 15 miles being completed; Mile 58 to Mile 147 (89 miles) not yet
started; Mile 147 to Mile 187 (40 miles) in progress, the equivalent of 17 miles
being completed. From Mile 187 to Mile 269 (that is, Eddontenajon Lake to the
north end of Dease Lake, 82 miles) has been completed by contract. The present
road from Dease Lake to the Alaska Highway is approximately 132 miles, making
the total distance 401 miles from Stewart to the Alaska Highway near Watson Lake.
There are four main areas of reconstruction under way by contract in the
Province of British Columbia. In the Fraser Canyon section of the Trans-Canada
Highway, three contracts totalling 6.15 miles are in progress, including three tunnels.
Four tunnels have previously been built in this section. On the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway, four contracts totalling 26.90 miles have been started between
Terrace and Sheraton. On the Kootenay-Columbia Highway, four contracts totalling 44.05 miles have been started between Skookumchuck and Radium, which will
bring all of Route No. 95 up to standard. On the Island Highway, the section from
Menzies Bay to Sayward, totalling 30.62 miles, is approximately 35 per cent
completed.

  REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION C 33
PAVING SECTION
(J. W. Kerr, Paving Engineer)
General
Because of an early start in the year and good fall weather, the volume of
paving work completed in 1962 was maintained at a normal level, despite very poor
summer weather. However, due to delays in grade construction resulting from adverse weather conditions, it was not possible to start work on all projects included
in the proposed paving programme for 1962/63. Eleven carry-over projects were
completed, and of 19 projects contracted in 1962, all but four were substantially
completed.
In-service Training
The same general policy of in-service training has been carried out. However,
in 1962 further steps were taken to integrate the training syllabus and examinations
of construction grading and paving personnel in order to increase the flexibility of
the employment of engineering aides within the Construction Branch.
Gravel-base Construction
As in previous years, crushed granular base strengthening was placed on existing pavements, as a result of Benkelman beam strength evaluations, before asphalt-
concrete recap was applied to the road on six projects. On three projects crushed
granular base, which had not been included in grading projects, was produced and
constructed on the grade prior to construction of asphalt-concrete pavement.
Cement-treated Base Construction
A further 10.7 miles of cement-treated base was constructed from the Alberta
Border toward Pouce Coupe. Satisfactory density, strength, and economy of construction were realized, but again difficulty was experienced in finishing off the surface of the base to the desired grade and shape considered necessary to obtain a
satisfactory ride after the application of an economical thickness of asphalt-concrete
wearing surface.
Hot-mix Asphalt Base and Surface Course Construction
On eight projects, use was made of hot plant-mixed asphalt concrete as base-
course material to provide extra pavement strength where strength evaluations indicated strengthening was required. A total length of 227 miles of highway was paved
with asphalt concrete by contract and 28.6 miles of asphalt-concrete shoulder paving
was done on three Trans-Canada Highway projects between Glacier Park and Yoho
Park. Some short test sections incorporating commercial mineral fillers were laid
in the Lower Mainland.
At Prince Rupert the crushing of aggregate was carried on through the winter
and spring.
Surface Treatments
Approximately 17 miles of chip sealing were completed on the Elko-Roosville
Highway by Departmental forces, using aggregate crushed by contract in 1961.
No new contracts were awarded for surface treatment work, but assistance
was given to Region No. 4 maintenance districts to enable them to apply a sand
seal to 52 miles of weathered pulvimix surfacing on the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway between Prince George and Telkwa.
 C 34 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1962/63
Departmental Pulvimixers
Because of the cool, wet summer weather, especially in Region No. 4, the
length and quality of pulvimixed road surfacing fell below normal.
A total of approximately 90 miles was mixed and laid by the two Departmental pulvimix crews. In order to complete the road-mix surfacing programme,
financial assistance was given to district forces to perform approximately 36 miles
of road mixing which could not be done before the end of the season by the headquarters pulvimix crews.
Curb, Gutter, and Storm Drainage
Hastings Street East—Esmond Avenue to Gilmore Avenue and Gamma Avenue
to Springer Avenue.—An additional 0.68 mile of Hastings Street in the Municipality
of Burnaby was completed, with curb and gutter, drainage structures, and asphalt-
concrete paving installed.
Penticton Arterial—Eckhart Avenue to Skaha Lake.—The Department has
entered into an agreement with the City of Penticton to pay a portion of the cost
(over a two-year period) of curb and gutter, storm drains, and paving the arterial
highway between Eckhart Avenue and Skaha Lake. The first phase was completed
in September.
Terrace Arterial.—The Department made an agreement to pay 50 per cent of
the cost of curb and gutter, storm drainage, and paving of the arterial highway in
Terrace, all of which was completed during the season.
Glover Road, Municipality of Langley.—The Department completed two
blocks of curb and gutter, storm drainage, and paving on Glover Road from the
intersection of the old Trans-Canada Highway northwards.
Ashcroft.—Forty-six hundred lineal feet of curb and gutter were installed on
the arterial highway through Ashcroft, drainage being effected by construction of
dry wells.
Asphalt-pavement Burner
With the increase in mileage and over-all age of our asphalt pavements, slick
patches have appeared in some localities because asphalt has been drawn to pavement surfaces by weather and the action of traffic. As these slippery areas could
prove hazardous to traffic under poor driving conditions, an attempt has been made
to provide an economical remedy.
Early in 1962 the Services Engineer constructed a truck-mounted propane-
fired high-intensity asphalt-pavement burner. This machine, which is generally
similar to pavement-burners being successfully used in Oregon and Ontario, is to
be used to burn off free asphalt which for various reasons may appear on road
surfaces. The purpose of the burner is to provide intense surface heat for a very
short period, which will flush off the free surface asphalt without overheating the
mat, thus avoiding damage to the binder in the underlying asphalt pavement.
Two short pavement-burning programmes were completed in the spring and
fall of 1962, using a foreman and driver from one of the pulvimix crews to carry
out the work.
Results were generally as satisfactory as could be expected from the use of a
new technique. As a result of experience gained, some modifications are being
made to the burner, and improved results are expected from future burning work.

Planning Section
In the last fiscal year the Planning Section procured 97 line miles of low-level
aerial photography for route analysis and mapping. This photography was utilized
to produce 48 miles of reconnaissance-type mapping and 7 miles of large-scale
mapping. From the mapping procured this year and previous years, 219 miles of
centre-line projections were analysed on the electronic computer, from which 47
miles of final location were determined.
Reports were prepared and submitted on the connection from Queensborough
Bridge to 10th Avenue in New Westminster, the Mission By-pass (Lougheed Highway), the rerouting of Highway No. 11 between Abbotsford and Mission, and
alternative crossings of the Pitt River (Lougheed Highway).
Preliminary intersection and interchange designs were complete on the following junctions: (1) Prince George Access at the new Fraser River Crossing, Cariboo
Highway; (2) Northern Trans-Provincial Highway and Terrace-Kitimat Highway;
(3) Cowichan Bay Road and Trans-Canada Highway south of Koksilah; (4)
McDermott Interchange, McDermott and Trans-Canada Highway; (5) Ladner
Interchange (exit-ramp improvement).
Planning studies on the following projects were completed in the past year:

Computer Section
Computer operation expanded considerably during the fiscal year 1962/63.
Nearly 700 hours of computer time were used, at a cost of $15,500; just under
half this time was on the I.B.M. 650. The D.T.M. II programme was used for the
analysis of eight preliminary earthwork projects, 250 miles of alternative lines being
computed to obtain 52 miles of centre-line location. Fifteen final earthwork projects
were run on the Earthwork IV programme, representing 75 miles of highway, mostly
on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. One hundred and thirty-three traverses
were processed, using the Surmap 02n programme.
Programmes are now being written for the I.B.M. 1620, a more modern computer which is due for delivery in September. This machine is considerably faster
than the I.B.M. 650, and has three times its capacity, enabling more comprehensive
programmes to be used.

TESTING BRANCH
(C. O. Brawner, Senior Materials Engineer)
The Testing Branch during the current year has continued to provide foundation information for structures and construction projects, testing services for materials, advice and research on problems encountered by all branches of the Department.   The following is a summary of these activities during 1962/63.
Bridge Foundations
Drilling investigations have been carried out for 50 bridges.    These include
seven large structures—namely, the Pritchard Bridge across the South Thompson
River, Copper River Bridge near Terrace, Fraser River Bridge at McBride, Kootenay
* Continuing survey.
t Previous continuing survey now complete.
 C 48 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1962/63
River Bridge at Fort Steele, Peace River Bridge at Hudson Hope, Kootenay River
Bridge at Wasa, and the Skeena River Bridge at Terrace. Twenty of the bridges
are situated on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway and nine are on the Trans-
Canada Highway. Some 15,000 feet of drilling has been performed for these
investigations, and about 3,000 soil samples were subjected to testing.
Soil Surveys
Soil surveys were carried out over 90 miles of new location. The majority of
this is carried out with light portable power-augers, although a proportion of deeper
holes require heavier truck-mounted auger rigs.
Gravel-pits were also investigated by drilling and by sinking test-pits. A report
was written on each investigation, and sieve analyses carried out on the gravel.
Landslides
Two large landslides, involving about 20,000,000 cubic yards of earth, occurred
on the Terrace-Kitimat Highway at Lakelse in May, 1962, within the space of two
weeks. Both slides occurred in very soft, sensitive, marine clay, totally destroying
the new grade for about 0.75 mile and 0.50 mile respectively. The movements
occurred rapidly, the clay turning to a virtual liquid condition, which flowed down
a rather gentle slope, and in the case of the second slide moved 2 miles into Lakelse
Lake. An extensive drilling and testing investigation was carried out to determine
the boundaries of the soft clay and to determine where and how the new road should
be reconstructed. Eventually it was proved possible to rebuild the road over the
soft mud of the slide area, using a combination of mud displacement and corduroy
construction.   This is now complete, and no further movements have been detected.
Several smaller slides have been investigated, and a close watch is being kept
upon the stability of Drynoch Slide, several slide areas on the Alaska Highway, and
at the Peace River Bridge at Taylor.
Pavement Design
Three hundred and sixty-three miles of new and reconstructed pavement were
designed, using information obtained by the use of the Benkelman beam. One
hundred and thirty-nine miles of control sections were tested to determine spring
restriction allowances; 88 miles of base under construction and 389 miles of existing pavement were tested for strength and adequacy. The use of the Benkelman
beam for measuring deflections under a wheel load combined with method of
evaluating pavement conditions, using a team of experienced evaluators, is providing
an increasing amount of accurate data for designing pavements.
Paint-testing
Road-marking paints, bridge paints, licence enamels and paints for use on the
new Government ferries were tested to determine whether they met Government
specifications. In addition, investigations were carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of different paint systems for the protection of steel bridges.
In order to ensure that the Department receives the paint specified, a new
inspection system has been devised and is being tried out. At present this will apply
only to paint for bridges. The Department's inspectors arrange to sample and affix
a tag to each paint-container as it is filled at the manufacturers.   These samples are
  C 50 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1962/63
tested for compliance with specifications. The manufacturer also does his own
control testing, the results of which are reported to the Department. If both tests
agree, the paint is approved. Unsatisfactory tests are reported to the Bridge
Branch for further action.
Materials-testing
The Vancouver laboratory has continued to inspect wooden piles; concrete,
steel, and timber culverts; structural lumber; and precast products at the manufacturer's premises before delivery. As a result, materials which arrive at the
job-site meet specifications, thus saving long delays caused when unsatisfactory
articles must be replaced, often at sites remote from the supplier.
Concrete
Forty-two concrete-mix designs for various projects were prepared in the
Victoria laboratory. The four regional laboratories handled the control testing of
concrete pours, breaking cylinders, slump tests, air-content tests, and water-cement
ratio control. In addition, 45 tests were made on concrete aggregates to determine
their suitability for concrete.
Gravel Prospecting
Gravel-pits were investigated during the year to provide information for construction projects, location surveys, and District Engineers. In many cases the pits
investigated were located from aerial photographs and proved by drilling.
Miscellaneous Investigations
Many unusual problems which require special investigation are received in the
Testing Branch. Among those worked on during the year are skid resistance of
road surfacings, measuring the amount of corrosion occurring on steel culverts in
various situations, the suitability of aluminum culvert pipe, the measurement of
moisture tensions in subgrades, measurement of the loads exerted on retaining-walls,
development of an earth-pressure cell, evaluation of adhesion properties of thin
asphalt surfacings to concrete, measurement of the adhesion of epoxy resins to
concrete, the effect of fillers in asphaltic concrete, and investigations into the Theological properties of culvert asphalts.
Revisions to specifications were made where research showed a practical
requirement.
TRAFFIC BRANCH
(J. H. Harding, Senior Traffic Engineer)
This year 40 additional locations were added to the list of points throughout the
Province where short traffic counts are taken annually. This brings the total of
these points to 698. Counts were also taken for special purposes in a number of
areas. Six additional permanent count stations were installed, bringing to 13 the
number of locations throughout the Province where continuous traffic-volume data
are being recorded.
Traffic volumes in 1962 showed increases over 1961 volumes of approximately
11 per cent in the Northern Interior, 7 per cent in the Southern Interior, 5 per cent
on Vancouver Island, and 3 per cent in the Fraser Valley. The Rogers Pass section
of the Trans-Canada Highway, opened July 30, 1962, carried an average of 3,500
vehicles per day during the first month it was open. During the year a substantial
increase was recorded in the number of requests from within the Department and
from the public for traffic-volume data.
 REPORT OF DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER
C 51
A considerable number of additional distance signs were installed during the
year. There are now, with only a few exceptions, distance signs every 10 miles on
all major highways south of Prince George and distance signs every 20 miles on
highways north of Prince George. Freeway directional signing was installed on the
Deas Tunnel Throughway between the International Border and the Ladner Trunk
Road. Signs as large as 8 by 20 feet were employed on this section. To keep pace
with changing conditions, a number of speed zones were studied and changes were
made where necessary to keep speed-limits realistic.
Eighty-nine 400-watt mercury luminaires were installed on the Abbotsford and
Chilliwack By-passes. A number of smaller lighting installations were also completed. Financial assistance was extended to municipalities to assist them in lighting
arterial highways within their boundaries.
Numerous requests for traffic signals were investigated, and 13 signals and 9
flashing beacons were installed where warrants were found to be filled. Major
revisions were also made to five signals. Many minor revisions were carried out to
accommodate changing traffic patterns. There are now well over 100 traffic signals
and 40 beacons on arterial highways in the Province. A number of intersection
problems were investigated, and channelization, signing, pavement markings, etc.,
were installed or revised where necessary. In co-operation with the railways and
with major financial assistance from the Board of Transport Commissioners, signals
were installed on 20 level railway crossings. There are now some 220 signalized
railway crossings on highways under the jurisdiction of the Department.
The Department continued its role of co-operation with other agencies. In the
fields of traffic and planning, the Senior Traffic Engineer represented the Department
on the British Columbia Safety Council, the Capital Region Planning Board, and
the Canadian Good Roads Association Committee on Uniform Traffic Control
Devices for Canada.
E. B. Wilkins,
Design and Planning Engineer.

REPORT OF SERVICES ENGINEER C 53
REPORT OF THE CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
During the 1962/63 fiscal year a total of 537 settlements was negotiated and
processed.  Two claims were submitted to arbitration proceedings for adjudication.
The expenditure for right-of-way and other properties acquired by the Department totalled $1,114,310.03. This includes holdings purchased on behalf of the
British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges Authority.
There were 24 sales by public tender or public auction of lands surplus to
highway requirements and of buildings to be cleared from rights-of-way, with a
recovery of funds totalling $12,011.30. Gross revenue from rentals, including
rentals prior to disposal of lands and buildings, was $69,842.32. The number of
properties under short-term lease or rental totalled 134.
The legal surveys programme is sufficiently advanced to facilitate public sales
of lands held surplus to right-of-way requirements. These surveys have also enabled
owners of properties abutting the rights-of-way to proceed with subdivision work
without undue delay.
L. J. Moore,
Chief Right-of-way Agent.
REPORT OF THE SERVICES ENGINEER
EQUIPMENT
During the year a net total of $4,227,655.77 was expended to cover the cost of

type sweepers, 5 maintenance kettles, 1 hydro seeder, 14 Vi-ton pick-ups, 1 Pacific
snow truck, 2 tractor trucks, 12 station wagons, and sundry small equipment such
as snow-ploughs, garage equipment, etc.
SIGN-SHOP
From the period April 1, 1962, to March 31, 1963, a total of 26,091 metal and
plywood signs was produced. Metal signs range in size from 12 by 12 inches to 30
by 30 inches, and plywood signs range in size from 36 by 36 inches to 20 by 8 feet.
In addition, a total of 8,729 delineators (3 by 8 inches) was produced.

Six Departmental crushers were operated in 41 different locations, to produce
approximately 1,550,000 tons of gravel.
 C 54 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1962/63
MIXING PLANTS
Two Departmental mixing plants operated in 39 different locations, producing
38,534 cubic yards of asphalt patching material.
FERRIES
(H. K. Gann, Superintendent of Ferries)
During the 1962/63 fiscal year, a total of 52 ferries of all types was operated
under the jurisdiction of this Department. The fleet included 12 Government-owned
major ferries, 14 Government-owned power-cable ferries, 15 Government-owned
reaction ferries, 4 Government-owned miscellaneous ferries, and 7 privately owned
subsidized ferries.
Traffic
The entire fleet carried a total of 2,042,626 vehicles and 5,228,803 passengers.
This was an increase of 110,282 vehicles and 312,307 passengers over the preceding
year. This increase was considerably above the normal annual increase. The
Castlegar ferries continued to carry the largest volume of traffic moved at any ferry-
site.  This ferry carried 894,198 vehicles and 2,133,393 passengers.
Maintenance
All ferries were inspected during the year, and recommended repairs were
carried out. Eleven major ferries were completely overhauled, and seven of these
were dry-docked for steamship inspection. Relief ferries were arranged during the
overhaul periods in order to avoid any disruption of service.
New Construction and Major Repairs
A new landing was built for the Barnston Island Ferry on the mainland side.
The new 50-ton vehicle ferry was installed at Hudson Hope and proved very popular
during the summer. A barge-type ferry crossing the Stikine River on the Stewart-
Cassiar Road has been taken over by the Department and new machinery installed.
The ferry at Twidwell Bend on the Pine River was replaced by a bridge. The former
Kelowna ferry " Lloyd Jones" was transferred to the Toll Authority.

 REPORT OF SERVICES ENGINEER C 57
COMMUNICATIONS
(W. F. Conlan, Superintendent of Communications)
All radio circuits operated normally during the year. The de-icing hammers
developed for remote sites have proved successful, and no instance of circuit outage
due to icing was encountered despite unusually heavy icing conditions.
The first full year of operation on the Rogers Pass radio system, designed to
carry National parks and R.C.M.P. communications as well as our own, has proved
adequate and satisfactory to all concerned.
Numerous radio surveys were undertaken, and installations on Vancouver
Island, Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland, and the Sechelt-Powell River area were
completed.
Base stations were added at Alexis Creek, Anahim Lake, Bella Coola, and
McBride, and two base stations and four mobile units were added for construction
on the Cassiar Road.
Some 122 mobile units were also added to the system.
Increasing use of the radio system is being made by headquarters branches,
such as Construction, Location, Traffic, and Materials Branches, due to the greatly
increased efficiency noted in both time and mileage effected with rapid communication.
Preliminary development work was undertaken on an automatic self-contained
repeater with a six months' supply of fuel and no moving parts which may be placed
on remote sites by helicopter as a complete working unit.
Co-operation continued with other departments and agencies, and sharing of
radio-sites developed by this Department now includes the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police, Forest Service, B.C. Telephone, Canadian National Railways, British Columbia Hydro and Power Commission, and West Kootenay Power and Light Company.

Safety Promotion
More and more emphasis has been placed on safety throughout the Department. The Headquarters Safety Committee has held regular monthly meetings, as
have the district committees. Close co-operation has existed between the Civil
Service Commission (Co-ordinator of Accident Prevention) and the Department.
 REPORT OF PERSONNEL OFFICER C 59
The type and wearing of hard hats have been standardized, and signal paddles
substituted for flags. Also, red vests are now supplied for survey crews, patching
crews, etc.
There were eight fatal accidents in the reporting year. Two of these were in
an aircraft, one by drowning, one from over-exertion, three involved motor-vehicles,
and one from a tree sprung from tension of telephone wires. Of the three which
involved motor-vehicles, one employee was struck by a private automobile, one was
caught between two Departmental trucks, and one was trapped by a scraper which
overturned.
The Interdepartmental Safety Committee met in 16 meetings and examined
reports of 534 accidents, making recommendations of assessments in 158 of these.
The Chairman expresses appreciation to the members for their assistance
during the year. F. A. MacLean,

  C 72 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1962/63
REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
The total expenditure for all maintenance of highways amounted to $17,-
875,545.   This was an increase of $596,000 over the previous year's expenditure.
There has been an increase in scope of operations during the year due primarily to the additional mileage of new highways and freeways which are added to
the highway system.
The increased funds, together with the knowledge gained by studying and
revising maintenance procedures, have resulted in a continual increase in the standard of maintenance. An asphalt patching school was started in the summer of 1962,
and immediate results could be seen throughout the Province. Foremen in charge
of patching crews were sent to a working-school, where they were required to do
the actual patching. This close touch with the work rather than teaching by lecturing resulted in outstanding results. The Department expects to carry out schools in
other phases of maintenance work in order to raise the general standard of work,
improve efficiency, and to derive a standard approach to procedures which in the
past have varied considerably.
Another successful year of routine maintenance was carried out. The highspeed equipment which the Department has been buying and manufacturing has
proven extremely effective. The Province keeps over 19,000 miles of road open in
the winter, which makes winter maintenance a major operation. Besides obtaining
and using the new high-speed equipment, we are increasing the use of chemicals,
such as salt and calcium chloride, to further improve the whole operation and give
better service to the travelling public. Last winter was the first time the Rogers
Pass and Blueberry-Paulson roads were kept open to the public. Our facilities
handled the operation very efficiently with only very minor traffic closures.
Radio communications continue to be an asset to the winter maintenance
operations, as it is throughout the rest of the year on other maintenance work.
Further expansions were made to take in areas not previously covered or improvements were made in areas in which the coverage was only fair.
The maintenance of bridges is satisfactorily carried out by bridge crews stationed in each district. They also undertake to replace wooden structures which
need reconstruction. A continuing programme of bridge elimination with culverts
and fills is carried out wherever it is possible to make the substitution.
In order to meet the demands of increasing traffic on minor roads, Departmental crews carry out minor betterments either with Departmental or with hired
equipment. The cost of these improvements is not included in the above-noted maintenance expenditures and amounts to approximately $6,000,000 for the fiscal year.
Generally, I am extremely pleased with the work that has been carried out and
the improvement in methods made in the last year.
J. A. Dennison,
Senior Maintenance Engineer.

Salmon Arm, Similkameen, South Okanagan, and Yale Electoral Districts
Cariboo (South) District
A wet summer with many thunder-storms hampered production and, entailing
emergency repairs to soft sections and small washouts, interfered with planning of
work until fall.
Reconstruction of Exeter Station Road, No. 554, was completed and a rebuilding of the road between 100 Mile House and Forest Grove was started.
Reconstruction of a 1.3-mile section of the Horsefly Road near China Cabin
was continued. Thirty-three miles of the Chilcotin-Bella Coola Highway west of
Anahim Lake and 25 miles of road in the Bridge Lake area were brushed to improve
visibility and facilitate snow-ploughing.
Gravelling, ditching, and culvert installation were done on numerous short
sections and general maintenance carried out on some 1,500 miles of road.
The old wooden suspension bridge across the Fraser River at Sheep Creek was
demolished. New bridges were built at Jim Creek, Rat Creek, Sword Creek (Mel-
drum No. 1), Seymour Creek, and Newton Creek (No. 1).
The winter offered below-average snowfall in most areas and a light and early
local run-off.
Kamloops District
Roads
Trunk and Main Highways.—General maintenance was carried out on all
trunk and main highways. Due to the opening of the Rogers Pass section of the
Trans-Canada Highway, the shoulder-restoration, weed-control, and sign-maintenance programme was pushed to completion. Special emphasis forced the completion of this work prior to the July 30th opening. The costing of the Trans-Canada
Highway mamtenance proved to be of some value and was continued. Sanding
operations had to be carried out extensively, as we had a relatively mild year with
a fair amount of light precipitation. Tlrs necessitated sanding operations to be
carried out at an accelerated pace. Also, a great amount of chemical was used to
bring about a bare pavement as soon as possible after a freeze.
 C 82 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1962/63
Other Highways and Roads.—Routine maintenance was carried out on other
roads, with special emphasis to try to get a coat of gravel over a number of busier
roads to alleviate the dust problem. Snowfalls were light. However, there were
icing conditions and a great demand for sanding in the hazardous areas.
Day-labour Construction.—On North Thompson Highway 2.1 miles were
reconstructed to standard. Four and one-half miles were gravelled and prepared
for pulvimixing. The pulvimixing was carried out by the headquarters crew and
completed. Twenty miles of the North Thompson Highway in the area of Albreda
were improved by widening corners and gravelling.
On Highland Valley Road 10 miles were reconstructed and the first lift of
gravel was placed.
Sundry Roads.—Approximately 50 miles of surface gravelling was carried out.
Forty miles of other roads had some improvements, such as widening, slashing,
ditching, and some spot gravelling. All gravel roads in Valleyview, Powers Addition, Brocklehurst, Westsyde, and Barriere were oiled with Bunker B. Road mixing was carried out on 13 miles of other subdivisions and community access roads.
Bridges
The following bridges were redecked with new cross-ties: Barriere River,
No. 13; Berwick, No. 119; Canyon Creek, No. 41; Criss Creek, No. 70; Lemieux
Creek No. 3, No. 131; Deadman Creek No. 6, No. 82.
Two bridges, Barricade Creek, No. 240, and Whitewood Creek, No. 208, were
reconstructed. A number of other bridges had considerable amount of maintenance, such as needle-beam replacement, guard-rails, sundry decking, etc. Another
item which took considerable time was the landscaping and general approach work
to Overlanders Bridge, No. 238.   This work is approximately 60 per cent complete.
Ferries
All ferries were checked, painted where necessary, and other general maintenance was carried out. There were short operations interruptions during high water
and due to icing conditions.
Lillooet (North) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance was carried out on all district roads.
Heavy concentrations of slide material were removed over a 50-mile section of the
Lillooet-Pioneer Highway. Extensive brush-control and weed-spraying programmes
were completed on various roads.
Construction.—One-half mile of heavy construction was done on Highway
No. 12, 17 miles south of Lillooet. This included removal of some 25,000 cubic
yards of rock and placing of a 70,000-cubic-yard fill.
One and one-half miles of the Bralorne-Pemberton Highway were bulldozed
through, some of this being slide rock and other difficult material.
Six and one-half miles of new road were built and taken over for the Lands
Department.
One mile of frontage roads was constructed at Spences Bridge, this being
necessitated by the new by-pass.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 83
Reconstruction.—Some 20 miles of district roads were realigned and brought
up to a higher standard. This included 2 miles of rock work 6 miles east of Lillooet
on Highway No. 12 and 2 miles of rock work on Highway No. 40, 3 miles east of
Lillooet.
Widening and raising of the grade on Highway No. 171 were carried out for
1.2 miles, north of Pemberton.
Paving.—Further paving of Spences Bridge and Cache Creek streets was carried out, as well as extensive patching on some of the minor roads.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was generally lighter over the district, resulting in
increased icing conditions. Twenty-four-hour ploughing and sanding patrols were
maintained on the Trans-Canada and Cariboo Highways.
Bridges
A new bridge was constructed over the Arn River north of Pemberton.
Extensive redeck'ng was carried out on other bridges in the Pemberton area.
The suspension bridge over the Fraser River at Churn Creek was realigned
through cable manipulation, and renewing of timbers and decking was carried out
on the Lillooet Suspension Bridge.
Ferries
The new cage on the Big Bar ferry cable has proved satisfactory, and new
checker marking was painted on the reaction ferry itself.
North Okanagan District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance was carried on throughout the district
and a much higher standard achieved. Extensive improvements in shouldering,
brushing, patching, and improving sight distance has most certainly improved the
main routes.
Construction and Surfacing.—No contract work in last year, but district forces
improved 30.50 miles of road; of this, 16.75 miles were paved by pulvimix and
10.25 miles by road mix, by district forces.
Snow Removal.—With below normal snowfall and with more rain and frost,
more hazardous conditions than usual were created. A good standard of maintenance and service was carried out at all times.
Bridges
One small timber bridge was completely renewed, and three were replaced by
multi-plate pipe arch and culvert. Major repairs were made to an 87-foot timber
brdge, and minor repairs and maintenance to several other bridges.
Revelstoke District
Roads
Maintenance crews concentrated on various projects on the Trans-Canada
Highway east and west of Revelstoke. Snow removal was controlled on the Revel-
stoke-Arrowhead Road, therefore resulting in very few muddy sections.
Calcium chloride was used on the Big Bend Highway and the Revelstoke-
Arrowhead Road for dust control.
  ■
REGIONAL REPORTS C 85
Trans-Canada Highway.—Clearing snowslides and slope slides and sanding and
ploughing were worked out on a three-8-hour-shift system with maintenance, therefore resulting in very few closures and the Trans-Canada Highway kept in good
condition at all times. Except for the Silver Creek Cut and the Lanark Slide, no
exceptional maintenance on slides was required. The year was highlighted by the
opening of the Trans-Canada Highway on July 30, 1962, by Premier W. A. C.
Bennett and the Honourable P. A. Gaglardi, with various dignitaries attending the
ceremonies, 7 miles east of Revelstoke.
Communications.—Communications in the Revelstoke District are very good,
except for the Galena Pass area.
Day Labour.—Complete reconstruction of 4.62 miles of the Galena Pass commenced in May. Widening of various corners and shouldering were carried out on
the Big Bend Highway from Mile 25 to Mile 90.
Bridges
Major construction was carried out on Cambie, No. 311, Eagle River, No. 26,
Kay Falls, and Eagle River, No. 323, at Sicamous and Solsqua, No. 321, besides
various works on other bridges.
Ferries
Yearly overhaul completed on M.V. " Lardeau." Icing conditions very bad at
Twenty-four Mile ferry, involving detours, etc., for short periods of time. Twelve
Mile ferry was fairly trouble-free of icy conditions.
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance.-—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and side-
roads throughout the district. Shoulder widening on the Kamloops-Vernon Highway was undertaken in several places. Extensive brush control was carried out on
main highways and side-roads, and good results were obtained by the use of Sima-
zine on weeds along our guard-rails. Calcium chloride was used extensively as a
dust preventive in the built-up areas.
Reconstruction.—Holding Road, No. 451, Mile 2 to Mile 5, was reconstructed
to a 28-foot subgrade and 6 inches of pit-run gravel applied.
Sorrento-Eagle Bay Road, No. 67, Mile 2 to Mile 4, was reconstructed to a
thirty-foot subgrade and 6 inches of pit-run gravel applied.
Squilax-Anglemont Road, No. 446, Mile 20.1 to Mile 22.1, was realigned and
rough bulldozer work completed.
Shuswap-Chase Creek Road, No. 202, Mile 1.8 to Mile 2.3, was reconstructed
to a 30-foot subgrade, approximately 80 per cent completed.
On Old Spallumcheen Road, No. 4, Mile 1.5 to Mile 2.1, clearing of right-of-
way on 0.6 mile, 80 per cent completed.
Snow Removal.—It was a normal year for snowfall, and all roads in the district
were kept open. Chemicals were used to a greater degree than previous years.

City of Penticton.
Twelve miles of side-road were reconstructed for paving.
There were 2.3 miles of new road constructed in the South Okanagan Land
Project.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was generally lighter. However, the higher temperature and midwinter rains resulted in a greater use of chemicals and sand throughout the district.
Bridges
Maintenance of bridges, including cleaning, painting, and minor repairs, was
carried out. Two bridges were constructed and six bridges reconstructed.
A highway deck and railing were placed on the old Great Northern Railway
Bridge west of Keremeos in conjunction with the Forest Service's access road to the
Ashnola River basin.
South Okanagan District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was increased on side-roads, with emphasis on ditching, patching, and improved grading.
A weed-spray programme was commenced, using Simazine and 2-4-D. The
success achieved warrants increased use of these chemicals for weed and brush control on the rights-of-way.
Reconstruction.-—Four dangerous corners north of Kelowna on Highway No.
97 were eliminated.
Shoulders were widened to a 10-foot standard on 14 miles of Highway No. 97.

revision of grade and alignment and gravelling was completed on side-roads in the
Merritt area.
On November 19, 1962, heavy rain and gale-force winds caused large washouts
and flooding on the Trans-Canada Highway at Texas Creek, Mill Creek, and Gordon
Creek, closing the highway for a 24-hour period. At the same time, washouts and
bridge damage closed the Silver Skagit Road and isolated a family at Mile 25. A
tote-road was immediately pushed through to rescue the family.
On February 3, 1963, heavy rainfall caused two major washouts on the Trans-
Canada Highway at Tank Creek, closing the highway for five days. To restore traffic
it was necessary to construct a detour road and erect a Bailey bridge.
The China Bar Tunnel was opened for traffic in the spring of the year.
Major Construction and Reconstruction.—On the Merritt—Spences Bridge Road
between Mile 4.5 and Mile 5.5, several rock corners were widened. In addition, an
extensive shouldering programme was completed throughout the length of this highway. A 0.25-mile diversion was completed on the Lindgren (Kawkawa Lake) Road
near Hope, improving the grade and alignment. At Tulameen, 0.27 mile of road
was constructed in a Department of Lands subdivision.

replacing old timber culverts, minor gravelling, laying calcium chloride, and grading.
Flood-protection work at Sullivan River was carried out jointly with a logging company.
Maintenance on Trans-Canada Highway No. 1, (Kicking Horse Canyon Section) consisted of cleaning ditches and culverts, removal of rockslides, and repairing
pavement and guard-rail.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 89
A severe spring break-up made considerable extra maintenance and repair
necessary on Kootenay-Columbia Highway, No. 95.
All other roads were maintained satisfactorily.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Athalmer Junction-Windermere section
of the Kootenay-Columbia Highway was completed.
Road-mix paving was laid on townsite streets in Athalmer, Windermere, and

Bridges
Le Sook Bridge, No. 204, was reconstructed. There was increased maintenance on bridges due to logging.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads, including pavement patching, grading, culvert installation, and minor ditching. Weed-
spraying was done on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway between Fort Steele
Junction and Wardner. The necessity for dust-laying measures increased due to additional subdivisions being constructed in the district. Oil and calcium chloride were
used as required to control the situation. Spring break-up conditions were mild and
caused litde trouble.
Construction.—Clearing and subgrade construction were nearly completed on
the first 3 miles of the new alignment for Highway No. 93 between Fort Steele Junction and Fort Steele.
Approximately 1 mile of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Fort
Steele Junction was reconstructed and a road-mix surface was applied.

in the district received minor maintenance, such as painting steel fences, cleaning
and washing substructures, etc.
Snow Removal.—General snow-clearing and sanding operations were carried
out during the winter. Due to the mild winter, maintenance costs dropped almost
50 per cent. Wet snowslides occurred at Morrissey at New Year's, causing traffic
delays of approximately six hours.
Grand Forks-Greenwood District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the year. Shoulder widening and ditching was carried out on Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway, No. 3, between Kettle Valley and Rock Creek Canyon.
A 2-mile narrow section on Rock Creek-McCulloch, No. 44, between West-
bridge and Beaverdell, was widened and gravelled.
Improvements were carried out on 2 miles of roads in the Grand Forks and

 C 92 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1962/63
The new Christina—Kinnaird section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway was opened to traffic on March 15, 1962, and considerable widening and
gravelling were carried out on a 3.95-mile detour at Paulson Bridge. Use of the
detour was discontinued on October 5th with the opening of Paulson Bridge.
Some 6,985 feet of asphalt guard-rail were installed by district forces on the
Christina-Kinnaird section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was considerably less than normal throughout the
district, and snow-ploughing and sanding were reduced on many roads. No difficulty
was experienced in keeping the new Christina-Kinnaird section of the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway open, but extensive sanding was required on the steep
grades.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained. A new 33-foot log-stringer bridge was constructed over McRae Creek at Lafferty to provide access to a sand-pit.
On September 8th the 460-foot Cascade Lower Bridge, consisting of two Howe
trusses and approach spans, was destroyed by fire of undetermined origin, closing
Highway No. 395 from Christina to the United States Border at Laurier. Cascade
Upper Bridge, which had been closed for some years, was repaired and opened to
provide a by-pass route for Highway No. 395.
Kaslo-Slocan District
Roads
Road-mix pavement was laid on a total of 42 miles of main roads.
Work was started on the rock bluffs south of Ainsworth and just north of
Coffee Creek.
Concentration of all district forces and equipment on projects together with
the new loader units, trucks, and a low-bed trailer made possible a great amount
of progress.
The amount of snowfall was lighter than average. Intermittent thawing and
freezing required more than usual sanding operations.
Bridges
The major item under bridges was the destruction and replacement by fill of
the old "A" Avenue tresde on the arterial highway in Kaslo.
Several bridges in the Lardeau Valley had their foundation piles renewed.
The Ferrett Bridge in the Inonoaklin Valley was a major replacement by trestle.
Three other bridges—the Leet on the back road to Kaslo, the Zwicky on the
Kokanee Glacier access road up South Fork, the Payne up in the Galena Bay
area—were replaced by log-stringer spans.
A foot-bridge replaced the condemned Colegrave Bridge just outside Edgewood.
Ferries
Maintaining full-time service was difficult due to motor repairs, and the rental
of tugs was a problem to move both Arrow Park and Needles ferries.
More cable replacements than normal may be the result of increased traffic or
a difference in quality of recent cables supplied. A different specification is being
given for the next cables.
A gravel-filled ramp between rock-filled cribs was built at Fauquier at an
estimated saving of $10,000 over the usual trestle-type landing approach.
Tie-down piles were driven to hold the Needles ramp in place.

The Macalister ferry, which was damaged by ice-flow the previous winter, was
also rebuilt.
Fort George District
Roads
Roads within the district remained in reasonable condition throughout the
summer, although a cool and wet season allowed little progress to be made and
seriously hampered some projects. A winter road was provided from McBride to
Crescent Spur.   Due to weather conditions, usable season was short.
Construction.—Day-labour projects were again on a large scale, with concentration on the John Hart Highway. A 28-mile section from the Parsnip Bridge
north to the district boundary was reditched and gravel reinforced in preparation for
paving.
Between Prince George and Giscome a 1 -mile section was reconstructed, while
additional gravelling was carried out over an 8-mile section for pulvimixing.
Other smaller projects of improvements on the Hoffercamp Road and Highway
No. 16 east of McBride were carried out.

Clearing was completed on a 4-mile section of proposed road to the new lookout-site at Portage Mountain dam-site.
Winter snowfall was very heavy. Much drifting occurred due to high winds.
Chinooks around the Christmas season created severe icing conditions and caused
the blocking of practically all culverts by freezing.
Bridges
Fort Nelson River Bridge was retracted before spring run-off. During run-off,
driftwood and ice damaged the piers. Repairs were made and the bridge replaced
for summer use.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 97
Omineca (East) District

Woodmere Road, No. 130, was reconstructed, and further extensive repairs were
carried out on Colleymount Road, No. 21.
Snow Removal.—An average snowfall was experienced throughout the district,
but the mild winter increased the demand for sanding operations. Snow-ploughing
was hampered on most side-roads due to a lack of frost along the ditch-lines.
Bridges
Flood.—As a result of heavy rainfall during the period June 25 to 28, 1962,
severe flash flooding occurred in the Burns Lake, Colleymount, and Houston areas
of the district. Five minor bridges were washed out and another badly damaged.

It was an average winter snowfall, with no special problems in snow-
ploughing. Icing conditions were severe at times. However, the improvement in
ice-control services was maintained.
Skeena (West) District
Roads
Maintenance.—District roads were maintained in good condition all year.
A late severe winter resulted in a late spring break-up. Restrictions were applied
March 16, 1962, and rescinded May 6, 1962. Extensive repairs to erosion, washouts, and frost boils were necessary. The summer was relatively dry and all gravel
roads received extensive gravel maintenance and improvement.
Two massive landslides occurred on the Terrace-Kitimat Highway in May and
June. District forces were hard put to assist in the provision and maintenance of
necessary detours. A number of smaller day-labour projects were undertaken by
district forces on the Beam Station Road, Dutch Valley Road, and Terrace Arterial

Island Lake.
A total of 20 miles of farm and settlement roads and school-bus routes was
gravelled.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 101
Snow Removal.—The major part of the district experienced the heaviest snowfall since 1917. Chinooks during the months settied the snow, which helped prevent
serious drifting conditions in the flat farming areas. However, alternate freezing
and thawing temperatures resulted in literally hundreds of blocked culverts. As a
result, during spring run-off there were many washouts and extensive damage resulted
to roads.
Bridges
Routine maintenance was carried out on most bridges in the district. Major
repairs were made to the floor systems on Landry Bridge, No. 53, and Wabi Bridge,
No. 11. Damaged portal bracing and sway bracing were replaced on the West Pine
Bridge, No. 12.

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF EXPENDITURE
The total gross expenditure for the period under review declined moderately in
relation to the preceding two years, but the volume of spending still remains at a
high level. Reduced expenditures on capital projects account for the decline as
reflected in the graph, overleaf. In the current year, capital expenditures comprised
68.1 per cent of the total budget, as compared with 70.3 per cent in the fiscal year
1961/62.
A gross expenditure of $81,979,840.52 was incurred, the details of which are
presented in the following financial report.
