 HIGHWAYS REPORT
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER
Victoria. B.C., October 12, 1962.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—Submitted herewith are the Highway and Bridge Construction Reports
for the fiscal year 1961/62, as well as a resume of the work carried out by the
Design and Planning Branch, which includes Location, Records and Estimates,
Soils and Materials, and Traffic. While a report covering the activities of the
Special Projects Engineer has not been included, he has been most active with his
many tasks, particularly in his liaison work between the Department and its various
consultants.
To very briefly recap the activities of the various branches with regard to mileage covered, may I note that the total length of roads constructed or reconstructed
by contract was 124.94 miles. Of this total, 25.36 miles were included in the
Trans-Canada Highway.
An extensive paving programme was carried out during the year, resulting in
the laying of 221.58 miles of bituminous plant mix, while 226.36 miles of road mix
and pulvimix were laid.
Construction of thirty-seven bridges was completed, while work proceeded on
forty-two others. Sixteen of the completed bridges and twenty-nine of the uncompleted are on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Final highway-location surveys during the year totalled 233.83 miles. The
amount of office design completed, together with estimates, totalled 188.56 miles,
which included 5.37 miles of urban street design.
F. T. Brown,
Chief Engineer.

REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, B.C., October 15, 1962.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I herewith submit district reports for the fiscal year 1961/62.
There are 23,042 miles of highways under supervision of this Department, and
this mileage comprises 3,849 miles of trunk highways, 1,484 miles of main highways, and 17,709 miles of other roads.
Total mileage of classified highways (arterial and secondary) is 725.
The expenditure on maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries amounted
to $17,279,110. The cost of snow-removal, which is included in the above amount,
was $2,151,730, there being 19,337 miles of road kept open during the winter
months.
There were fifty-two ferries operating under the supervision of the Department.
The number of vehicles carried was 1,933,426, and the number of passengers,
including drivers, was 4,917,578.
The total mileage of road constructed or reconstructed by day-labour was
186.27.   Improvements or minor betterments were made to 523 miles.
Right-of-way negotiations resulted in a total of 1,031 settlements, amounting
to $4,565,465.
During the calendar year 1961 there were 2,600 subdivisions handled by the
Department, of which 325 were adjacent to controlled access highways. There
were issued 327 permits for entrances on controlled access highways and 684
permits for entrances on non-controlled access highways. Other permits issued for
other works on Crown lands amounted to 2,085.
F. A. MacLean,
Assistant Deputy Minister.
 REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER J  13
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
Indicative of the continuing activity of the Department's Bridge Branch during
this year was the completion of construction of thirty-seven bridges, two snow-sheds,
and three ferry-landings, and the fact that a further forty-two bridges and a ferry-
landing were in course of construction at the conclusion of the period. Sixteen of
the completed structures and the two snow-sheds are on the Trans-Canada Highway,
while twenty-nine of the bridges under construction are also on this highway.
Detailed information of the completed structures and of those under construction are appended, while the Statement of Expenditure shows that the total gross
expenditure thereon amounted to approximately $19,750,000. This compares with
an expenditure of approximately $20,150,000 in the previous year, indicating substantially the same volume of construction was performed.
The year was notable for the completion of seven major structures (Columbia
River Bridge at Revelstoke, Trail Bridge, Overlanders Bridge at Kamloops, Chil-
cotin Bridge over the Fraser River near Williams Lake, Elk River Bridge on the
Elko-Roosville Highway, Vedder Canal Bridge, and Quesnel River Bridge) and
for the steady progress made in the construction of nine other major structures
(three crossings of the Fraser River at Port Mann, Alexandra, and near Prince
George, Kootenay River near Creston, South Thompson River at Spences Bridge,
Columbia River at Donald, Paulson Bridge on the Christina Lake-Kinnaird section
of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, and the new Sicamous Narrows Bridge).
The foundation difficulties on the Fraser River Bridge at Port Mann having
been overcome, work on this huge structure continued expeditiously during the
review period, and present forecasts are for completion of this truly notable structure
during 1963.
Two ferry-landings were completed at Darrell Bay and Woodfibre, thus permitting this important ferry service to be brought up to modern standards, while
the much-needed landing at Texada Island was also completed. In the Rogers
Pass section of the Trans-Canada Highway, the Department completed two more
snow-sheds—Jack MacDonald (462 feet long) and Twins (616 feet long).
A general review of the year's activity shows not only continued effort toward
completion of the structures required for the Trans-Canada Highway, but also substantial work done on structures for the Deas Tunnel Throughway, the Creston-
Salmo and Christina Lake-Kinnaird sections of the Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway, and on other important, if isolated, projects throughout the Province. At
the end of the year our advance planning was becoming more oriented toward the
structures needed on highways other than the Trans-Canada Highway—for example,
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, Stewart-Cassiar Highway, Kootenay-Colum-
bia Highway, North Thompson Highway, etc.
The heavy bridge design and construction programme continues to necessitate
the retention of consulting engineering firms to supplement the output of the Department's own designing and construction staff.
Throughout the year the construction industry exhibited strong competitive
tendencies in bidding on bridge projects, and there was at no time any lack of
supply of materials of construction. Prestressed concrete continued to show itself
competitive with the rival media of steel and reinforced concrete in the construction
of short and medium-span structures. The production of light-weight concrete
aggregates in the Province has provided an opportunity to effect economies in the
construction of long-span structures, and the Department is investigating aluminum
for structural purposes, as well as the many other materials and techniques constantly
being developed by industry.
 J  14
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1961/62
Weather conditions were again favourable during this period for construction
operations, and it may be mentioned that two important projects were continued
to completion through the severe winter of 1961/62. Although successfully carried
out, such winter operations prove very expensive.
Over and above the construction of new permanent structures, the Department
is responsible for the maintenance of the great number of temporary or semipermanent bridges located mostly on the secondary highways of the Province, and
the efforts of the Department's regional and district forces, who shoulder this
responsibility, cannot be too highly commended. The past year called for no less
effort in this regard than previous years and served to point up the continuing
demand for modern permanent bridges to maintain the Province's highway system.
Apart from measures for the maintenance of existing structures, the Department was not called upon to carry out further installations for the British Columbia
Toll Highways and Bridges Authority during this period.
Elk River Bridge on the Elko-Roosville Highway, 10 miles south of Elko.
Length, 525 feet; width of roadway, 26 feet.

  J 26 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1961/62
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION (CONTRACTS)
The mileage of highway completed by contract on all highways was 125, of
which 20 miles were multi-laned sections (four lanes). Of these mileages, a total
of 25 miles was completed on the Trans-Canada Highway (11 miles being four
lanes). The mileage of work done was approximately equal to that completed during each of the past two years, although the mileage completed on the Trans-Canada
Highway is down because this highway is nearing completion. Grading excavation
for all highways was 17,447,780 cubic yards of solid rock and other materials. The
excavation has decreased from the amounts moved during the past two years because of greater concentration of work in the Lower Fraser Valley, where grading
is comparatively less in relation to other work required, and because several contracts for clearing and grubbing only were awarded.
As with last year, priority was given to the new routes of the Trans-Canada
Highway (No. 1), the Deas Tunnel Throughway (No. 99), the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway (No. 3), and the Stewart-Cassiar Highway, but important work
is also being carried out on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway (No. 16), the
Island Highway (No. 19), and other highways.
Trans-Canada Highway.—All multi-lane sections are now in progress or completed, West Vancouver to Rosedale. Substandard sections are being brought up
to standard or proposed to be reconstructed as soon as possible. In progress are
the sections Nanaimo to Departure Bay Ferry, Hedstrom Hill to Hope, Yale to Bell
Crossing, and Park Bridge to Yoho Park. Soon to be awarded are Alexandra North
and China Bar to Hells Gate, totalling 4.71 miles. Between Yale and Boston Bar,
four two-lane tunnels have been completed to date, one just started, and two proposed. China Bar Tunnel, 2,000 feet long, will be ready to open shortly, complete
with generating plant, exhaust fans, and carbon monoxide detection equipment.
The 6.06 miles of multi-lane section from Abbotsford to the Vedder River has been
held up by construction of an overhead bridge at Riverside Road, but road construction and paving have been completed for some time, and the new route will be
opened soon.     '  j
Deas Tunnel Throughway.—All road and paving contracts have been awarded,
and this multi-lane highway will be ready to open early in 1962 by using a temporary level crossing over the Great Northern Railway, protected by automatic
signals. An overhead bridge will be constructed as soon as possible, having been
delayed by difficult ground conditions.
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.—The new Christina Lake-Kinnaird section has been opened for light traffic by use of a 4-mile detour at the site of Paulson
Bridge. The bridge is expected to be completed in the late fall of 1962, but in the
meantime the detour will be widened to handle all traffic. The 18-mile cut-off from
Sheep Lake to Rossland is well under way, 5 miles having been completed and
6 miles being cleared and grubbed. The Salmo-Creston section, 42 miles, is 79 per
cent completed.
Stewart-Cassiar Highway.—Progress continues to be fair, although limited by
having access only from the two ends of the new route. Twenty-nine miles were
constructed this year, and 94 miles have been constructed to date since 1957.
The total to be completed, of the new route south of Dease Lake, is 163 miles
(including 89 miles not yet awarded).
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.—On the new route east of Prince George,
Tabor Lake to Lamming Mills, most of the work this year has been confined to

clearing and grubbing preparatory to later construction. Two clearing contracts
totalling 30 miles are almost complete, and 9 miles were previously done by day-
labour. Eighteen miles of construction are complete to date, and a gap of 49 miles
west of Dome Creek has yet to be started.
Island Highway.—Two contracts totalling 31 miles have been started, and
cover the entire distance from Bloedel to Sayward.
During the fiscal year, quantities in road construction contracts were as
follows:—
Solid rock 1 cu. yd.
Other materials cu. yd.
Clearing and grubbing ac.
Large culverts and cattle-passes (structural-steel plate) lin. ft.
Other culverts (all types), 10 to 72 inches in diameter__lin. ft.

 J 32 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1961/62
PAVING SECTION
(J. W. Kerr, Paving Engineer)
As a result of favourable weather conditions, almost all paving which was
planned for completion during 1961 was satisfactorily completed.
In compliance with the Government's fiscal policy, a number of paving contracts were called late in the season, with the results that these contracts were carried
over until the following fiscal year for completion. This has proven a very satisfactory arrangement. The contractor is able to get on with the work earlier in the
season, and inspection staffs who have been employed at various other tasks during
the winter are placed on contract work earlier than would be the case if calls were
made at start of the next fiscal year.
In-service Training
The same policy of in-service training has been carried out, with subsequent
technical proficiency examinations. This training, and examinations, has made our
task much easier in assessing the potential of the inspection staff.
Base Construction and Hot-mix Asphalt Paving
Further base stabilization over old pavements was carried out as an integral
part of paving contracts.
The over-all length of asphaltic concrete paving completed during 1961 was
somewhat lower than the previous year, there being approximately 222.6 miles,
including 6.6 miles of four-lane highway and interchanges.
There was less paving carried out on the Trans-Canada Highway than during
the past year. However, a heavier Trans-Canada Highway paving programme is
expected in 1962.
Paving work commenced on the Deas Tunnel Throughway in March, 1962,
although progress was hampered by adverse weather.
Soil Cement Stabilization
Some 20 miles of soil cement stabilization were completed on the Cariboo
Highway this season, and 1.47 miles of cement-treated base were constructed on
the four lanes of the Deas Tunnel Throughway. The contractors have become more
proficient in this work, which has resulted in much lower unit prices. Unfortunately
the cost of cement is such that where granular materials are plentiful and our sub-
grades of sufficient width, the application of additional thickness of granular materials is by far the most economical method of construction to obtain extra pavement
strength.
Surface Treatments
Approximately 115 miles of chip seal surface treatment were completed during
1962, mainly on the Trans-Canada Highway and North Thompson Highway.
Department forces carried out 21 miles of sand seal-coat work and 6 miles of
chip seal. The work was carried out in areas where it would not have been economical or convenient to call for tenders.
Departmental Pulvimixers
Approximately 98 miles of pulvimixing were completed by Departmental pulvi-
mixing crews in addition to the sand seal-coat and chip seal-coat work.
 —
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION J 33
Because of favourable weather conditions in the northern portion of the Province, all work which had been undertaken was completed and the quality of work
much better. A 7-mile section between the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
and Hazelton was gravelled and pulvimixed, a job we had endeavoured without
success to carry out for the past several years.
Storm Drainage and Curb and Gutter Work
Two more blocks of East Hastings Street were widened and repaved, and curb
and gutter, storm drains, and repaving were carried out under Project No. 1132,
North Kamloops By-pass.

Planning Section
During the past year the Planning Section was assigned aerial photography
work and received 93 line miles of low-level aerial photographs. Ninety-one miles
of this photography was used to analyse the route between Prince Rupert and Terrace
on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway in order to ensure that replacement of
forty-two bridges would be positioned to fit the ultimate relocation of the highway.
The two remaining line miles of photography will be utilized in obtaining precise
large-scale mapping between the Lions Gate Bridge and the Trans-Canada Highway
in West Vancouver.
Previously obtained low-level photograph and mapping have been utilized to
complete preliminary layouts and reports on the following projects: (1) No. 5
Road (Lulu Island), (2) Cache Creek Junction (junction of Highway No. 1 and
Highway No. 2), (3) Shaughnessy Street and Lougheed Highway Junction.
Existing B.C. Government photography has been utilized to complete reconnaissance mapping between Tete Jaune Cache and the Alberta Boundary on the
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.
Preliminary reports were completed on Nanaimo arterials on the Trans-Canada
Highway, and layout drawings made for the junction of Patricia Bay Highway
and McTavish Road.
Utilizing previously obtained mapping, work has been progressing and preliminary layout plans are nearing completion for the following projects: (1) Victoria-
Thetis Lake Overhead, four lanes (Trans-Canada Highway); (2) C.N.R. Overpass-
Telegraph Road, four lanes (Patricia Bay Highway); (3) junction of Highways
No. 1 and No. 17 (Trans-Canada Highway and Patricia Bay Highway); (4) North
Road-Pitt River, four lanes (Lougheed Highway); (5) Penticton By-pass, four
lanes (Okanagan Highway); (6) final design and contract drawings nearing completion on Roebuck Interchange (Trans-Canada Highway).
Projects in hand in various stages of completion include: (1) Coquitlam
River-Pitt River, four lanes (Lougheed Alternate); (2) Scott Road, four lanes
(Surrey); (3) Surrey Perimiter Highway, four lanes (Surrey); (4) Lions Gate
Bridge-Trans-Canada Highway, four lanes (West Vancouver); (5) Abbotsford-
Mission, four lanes (Highway No. 11); (6) Pitt River-Stave River, four lanes
(Lougheed Highway);   (7) Stave River-Mission, four lanes (Lougheed Highway).
Computer Section
In late 1961 a Computer Section was set up. Washington State's highway-
design computer programmes were obtained and adapted to B.C. design standards.
 J 44 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1961/62
Programmes that have been successfully used include: —
(a) D.T.M. II, which is used in the preliminary survey stage, and calculates
approximate quantities involved in alternative highway alignments.
(b) Earthwork IV, which calculates precise quantities for the alignment
finally agreed upon, using various auxiliary programmes to produce mass
haul curves, profiles, and plan plots.
(c) Surmap 02N, which is used to check field traverses, adjusting them where
necessary.
Work on further programmes is continuing.
Legal Survey Section
The total expenditure for legal surveys of rights-of-way was as follows: —
Legal Surveys Vote  $149,983.00
Project Vote        64,007.88
Total  $213,990.88

TESTING BRANCH
(C. O. Brawner, Senior Materials Engineer)
The Testing Branch has continued to provide information, advice, and research
on all the phases of highway location, designs, construction, and maintenance during
the past year. The following gives a summary of the activities of the Branch during
1961/62.
Bridge Foundations
Foundation studies are carried out for all new bridges.
This year drilling investigations were made for forty-one bridges. Final reports
were prepared for thirty-one bridges; preliminary data were obtained for eleven
more. Difficult foundation conditions caused by deep deposits of soft unstable soils
required some degree of construction control measures to be taken at twenty-six
bridges, and additional information, extra drilling, rock inspections, etc., at seventeen sites.
A portable barge, designed by the Branch, has been used wherever drilling
over water has been done.   This has been proved successful and economical.
Some of the sites investigated were Nicomekl River Bridge, Campbell River
Underpass, Nimpkish River Bridge, Stikine River Bridge, Fraser River Bridge at
McBride, and Peace River Bridge at Hudson Hope.
Soil Surveys
It is the ultimate aim to obtain detailed soils information on all new highway
projects before designs are completed and let to tender. This year it has been possible to do this to a greater extent than previously. Such information enables problems to be foreseen and remedies designed so that accurate cost estimates can be
drawn.
During the year, reports were drawn up for twenty-nine sections of proposed
new highways, some of which are projects presently under construction, others being
preliminary locations under design. These investigations are mainly carried out by
the Regional Materials Engineers using auger-drilling equipment, but some required
a more detailed sub-surface investigation using diamond-drilling equipment.
Landslides
Slide activity in the Province this year has been less than previously. At Dry-
noch Slide, excavation of drainage-ditches and the provision of flat graded back-
slopes plus horizontal drains appears to have stopped movement in the vicinity of
the new highway grade, although movement higher up the slide continues at a slow
rate.   Observations of movement and water-pressure are still being carried out.

 J 48 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1961/62
Several slides exist on the Alaska Highway between Dawson Creek and Fort
St. John. Most have been remedied for the time being, but many will require treatment in the future. Nine other slides of minor extent were investigated during the
year.
Other Problems
About thirty other problems involving soils or other construction materials
were investigated. These problems include lightweight-concrete deterioration on
bridge decks, scour investigations at several bridge-sites, piezometer and slope indicator installations to check bridge-abutment movement, retaining-wall designs, construction over peat, flooding due to high ground-water, sub-surface investigations for
two new highway maintenance garages, etc.
Pavement Design
The Benkelman beam has been used extensively both for pavement designs
and for evaluation purposes. A pavement inventory has been established covering
3,000 miles of paved highway. This is divided into 1,347 sections of equal age, on
uniform soils and having uniform riding characteristics. Benkelman beam testing
has been carried out on 640 of these sections. In addition, weekly testing has been
performed on 135 spring-control sections. This was done in the spring of 1962 to
guide the timing and degree of spring load restrictions.
Base thickness designs have been prepared on 273 miles of two-lane pavement
and 18 miles of four-lane highway, using the Benkelman beam deflections.
Paint-testing
The Paint Testing Section has carried out many investigations, among which
are testing of traffic paints, licence-plate enamels, tree-marking paints, suitable paints
for concrete, coatings for rusty steel surfaces, paints and pre-treatments for galvanized highway signs, anti-corrosive and anti-fouling marine paints. The field performance and inspection of bridge paints and traffic paints supplied to the Department have also been an important part of this work, ensuring that such materials
are supplied to Department specification. One such investigation was the testing
of a zinc-rich paint for the Trail Bridge.
Miscellaneous Investigations
The following problems were also investigated: Night visibility of reflectorized
highway signs; field performance of different types of road reflectors such as " cat's
eyes "; laboratory testing of glass beads for use in reflectorized paints; anti-skid
materials for aluminum overpass structures; resurfacing requirements for the Lions
Gate Bridge, comprising a study of the skid resistance and accident frequency of
the present bridge. A study was made on the rheological properties of culvert
asphalts in an attempt to set out a satisfactory set of specifications. The problem
of culvert corrosion initiated a study of the possibilities of using cathodic protection,
and several soil resistivity surveys were made in connection with this.
Materials-testing
In the Vancouver region a considerable effort is being made to inspect at source
all materials being supplied to the Department. These include paints, timber piles,
precast concrete products, pumped sand supplied as fill on the Deas Tunnel Freeway, and many other products.   This has involved a close examination of the Depart-
 REPORT OF DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER J 49
ment's specifications for these materials to ensure they are up to date and provide
the Department with the desired quality of product.
Concrete
The practice of providing economical design mixes has been continued, and
the concrete laboratory has supplied this service for almost all jobs where concrete
is being used. Test cylinders from concrete pours are now being tested in each
region, thus reducing transportation costs and saving time.
Prospecting for Gravel
The location of suitable sources of gravel remains an extremely important part
of the work of the Branch. Specific requests from districts and construction projects
to prove up existing pits or to seek new ones are numerous and consume much of
the time of the regional soils personnel. In addition, gravel surveys are being made,
using aerial photographic methods, which locate possible sources of gravel, later to
be proved by drilling. This latter activity is growing in importance as highways are
located in remote areas and in areas where existing sources are either used up or
are privately owned. One hundred and thirty-eight gravel pits were investigated
during the year.
TRAFFIC BRANCH
(J. H. Harding, Senior Traffic Engineer)
Traffic counts taken on Provincial highways during 1961 indicated that traffic
increased over 1960 volumes in the Fraser Valley, but remained virtually the same
on Vancouver Island and in the Interior of the Province. The number of points at
which traffic counts are taken was increased to cover new highways and provide
more information on existing highways. During the year seven permanent counters
were placed in service at points throughout the Province. These counters will provide year-round information to supplement the summer volume data presently being
recorded.
A programme of installation of distance signs near highway junctions and outside built-up areas was completed, and work was started on installation of distance
signs on major highways at maximum intervals of 20 miles in the southern part of
the Province and 40 miles in the northern part. Some 320 of these signs have been
erected to date. Checking and revision of advisory speed signs on all major highways in the Province was completed in 1961. A revised list of standard highway
signs, in accordance with the Canadian Standards, was compiled preparatory to
preparation of a new B.C. sign manual. Freeway directional signing was installed
on the Abbotsford By-pass section of the Trans-Canada Highway. A growing
problem is the provision of services signs on multi-lane divided highways to assist
motorists and the owners of by-passed businesses and, at the same time, retain the
good appearance and efficiency of these new highways.
Many speed zones were studied, and, where necessary, radar speed checks were
taken. As a result of these studies, a number of speed zones were altered. The
mileage of highway in the Province zoned for 60 miles per hour was again increased
during the past year.
A study was completed of the levels of pedestrian and vehicular traffic at which
crosswalks with signs are warranted. The findings made in this study have been
adopted as Departmental policy.
More intersections were illuminated during the year, and considerable work
continued on the planning of freeway lighting.   Considerable work was done in co-
 J 50 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1961/62
operation with the Department of Public Works on the lighting of the China Bar
Tunnel, culminating with installation of the lighting in the spring of 1962. Financial
assistance was extended to a number of municipalities, in accordance with the Department's policy of sharing the cost of illumination of arterial highways in organized areas.
An inventory of the adequacy of main highways throughout the Province was
completed during the year. The information obtained from this study will be combined with the pavement-evaluation studies done by the Materials Engineer.
Numerous intersection problems were investigated, and improvements, such as
signing, pavement-marking, channelization, and signals, were installed at a number
of intersections. Equipment was altered or new equipment installed at some signalized intersections to accommodate changing traffic patterns and increased traffic
flow. Almost all level crossings of major highways and railways regulated by the
Board of Transport Commissioners which are not scheduled to be over-passed in
the near future are now protected by automatic signals. During the year, through
the combined efforts of the railways, the Board of Transport Commissioners, and
the Department, signals were installed at a number of crossings on roads of lesser
importance.
The Senior Traffic Engineer continued to represent the Department on the
British Columbia Safety Council, the Capital Region Planning Board, and on the
Canadian Good Roads Association Joint Committee on Uniform Traffic Control
Devices.
E. B. Wilkins,
Design and Planning Engineer.
REPORT OF THE CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
Right-of-way negotiations for the 1961/62 fiscal year resulted in a total of
1,031 settlements being processed. One claim was referred to arbitration proceedings for adjudication.
The costs of rights-of-way and of all other properties acquired by the Department totalled $4,565,464.85. The foregoing includes holdings purchased on behalf
of the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges Authority.
Sales by public tender and by public auction of lands acquired surplus to highway requirements and of buildings to be cleared from rights-of-way totalled fifty-
three, with a recovery in funds in the amount of $81,341.69. Revenue from rentals
prior to the disposal of lands and buildings, including also that from properties currently held for future construction projects, grossed $65,771.93. The number of
dwellings and parcels of land under short-term lease or rental totalled 125.
The legal surveys programme is now 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 the net total of $4,106,609.42 was expended to cover the cost
of labour, repairs, fuel, and garage overhead required to operate equipment owned
by the Government and used by the Department of Highways.
The sum of $2,249,422.85 was expended on the purchase of new equipment,
as follows: 19 power-graders, 3 self-propelled scrapers, 4 tractors, 28 tractor
loaders, 12 tractor mowers, 1 gradall, 1 screening plant, 3 road rollers, 1 pull-
grader, 3 35-ton semi-trailers, 3 caboose trailers, 2 compressors, 18 sand bodies,
1 Pacific snow-plough, 87 4-ton dump-trucks, 29 3-ton dump-trucks, 2 centre-line
marking trucks, 4 tractor trailer trucks, 42 Vi-ton light delivery trucks, 16 Vi-ton
panel trucks, 10 %-ton panel trucks, 33 sundry vehicles, and sundry small equipment, such as vibrating tampers, snow-ploughs, garage equipment, etc.
SIGN-SHOP
From the period April 1, 1961, to March 31, 1962, a total of 26,466 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 13,643 delineators (3 by 8 inches) was produced.
A total of 76,950 square feet of Scotchlite was purchased and applied during
the same period.
The net expenditure of $140,850.28 was incurred in the production of these
signs.
GRAVEL-CRUSHING
Six Departmental crushers were operated in forty-four different locations to
produce approximately 1,500,000 tons of crushed gravel.
MIXING PLANTS
Two Departmental mixing plants operated in thirty-three different locations,
producing 43,716 cubic yards of asphalt patching material.
FERRIES
(H. K. Gann, Superintendent of Ferries)
The 1961/62 fiscal year saw many changes in the ferry fleet of the Department
of Highways. Several new replacement ferries were built, and several new ferry
services were brought under Departmental jurisdiction. The Gulf Islands and Salt-
spring Island ferry services were transferred to the British Columbia Toll Authority
along with the former Ladner ferry M.V. " Delta Princess." The final count showed
a total of fifty-two ferries operated under the jurisdiction of this Department. These
were as follows: Twelve Government-owned major ferries, thirteen Government-
owned power-cable ferries, sixteen Government-owned reaction ferries, four Government-owned miscellaneous ferries, and seven privately owned subsidized ferries.
Traffic
The ferry system carried a total of 1,932,344 vehicles and 4,916,496 passengers, which represented an increase of 73,012 vehicles and 23,253 passengers over
the preceding year.   This increase was far below the normal annual increase.
The Castlegar crossing was again responsible for the greatest volume of traffic
carried during this period—842,778 vehicles and 1,898,104 passengers were carried by the two ferries.
 j 52 highways report, 1961/62
Maintenance
All ferries were inspected and repairs carried out as required. The following
vessels were dry-docked for steamship inspection and annual overhaul: M.V.
"Anscomb," M.V. " Balfour," M.V. " T'Lagunna," M.V. " Rolf Bruhn," M.V.
"Catherine Graham," M.V. "Garibaldi," M.V. "Quadra Queen," and M.V.
" Eena."
New Construction and Major Repairs
The Albion ferry M.V. " T'Lagunna " was taken into the John Manly Shipyard, where the old wood deck, bulwarks, and superstructure were removed. A new
and wider steel deck was installed, with new steel superstructure of modern design.
This vessel is now very functional as well as pleasing to the eye.
A new centre engine and steering system were installed in the Kootenay Lake
ferry M.V. " Balfour." This extra power and steerage enable the vessel to operate
during heavy weather in the winter months.
The former Woodfibre ferry M.V. " Rolf Bruhn " has been overhauled and
modified for use as a relief ferry. It has been used at several sites while the regular
ferry was undergoing repairs.
A new ten-car steel ferry with all new machinery was built and installed at
Harrop to replace the former ferry, which had become inadequate.
A new 50-ton steel barge ferry with towers and overhead cable was built and
installed at Hudson Hope. Service is expected to commence in June, 1962. This
will replace the former passenger-launch service.
Due to damage caused by a flash flood in the Fraser River, it was necessary to
completely rebuild the Big Bar ferry and partially rebuild the Macalister ferry. Two
of the damaged pontoons were salvaged and shipped to Vancouver for repairs.
A temporary cable ferry was installed adjacent to the Hudson Hope dam-site
to transport heavy road-building machinery across the Peace River.
General
A new privately owned subsidized passenger-launch ferry service was authorized between Lasqueti Island and French Creek.
The Gabriola Island ferry M.V. " Eena," formerly owned by the Davis Shipping Company at Nanaimo, was purchased by the Government. The vessel continued operating to Gabriola Island, but the schedule was increased considerably.

COMMUNICATIONS
(W. F. Conlan, Superintendent of Communications)
During the year, communication facilities were extended to cover Vancouver
Island and the Pender Harbour-Powell River area.
Installations were completed on the Rogers Pass radio system and placed in
full operation for familiarization purposes prior to the highway opening. This system provides coverage to the National parks and police as well as to ourselves.
Communication facilities were extended west from Williams Lake to the Alexis
Creek-Anahim Lake area.
The McBride area was also covered by a base station.
Some 110 mobile units were added to the network.

Workmen's Compensation Board Claims and Payments
Workmen's Compensation payments to Highways personnel are as follows:-
For 1961 calendar year  $166,026.85!
Payment of claims which originated in 1961      101,849.79
i Includes ten permanent partial disability and two fatal accidents, $70,942.46.
The pressure of increased work resulting from the British Columbia Toll Authority Ferry Service claims, as well as many other types of claims, has precluded
carrying out safety promotion in the field. However, a small headquarters committee was formed and was responsible for instructions being issued to supervisory
personnel in the field to ensure that local safety committees were functioning in all
districts. The response, by way of minutes of meetings of the local safety committees, has been satisfactory in the main. The headquarters committee also approved
a design for a notice-board to be erected in each Department of Highways yard,
whereon a record is kept of the number of accident-free days for each division of
forces; that is, shop, bridge, operators, etc.
 J 58 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1961/62
Workmen's Compensation Board
The figures for Workmen's Compensation Board payments show a substantial
increase over the previous year. The increase is accounted for largely because of
reserves set up for two fatal accidents and three permanent disability accidents.
One of the fatal accidents occurred in October, 1960, for which a reserve was set
up in the Workmen's Compensation Board reporting year 1961, amounting to
$17,681.63. The other fatal accident occurred in October, 1961, for which the
reserve set up totalled $17,958.07. The three permanent partial disability claims
had reserves set up of $29,877.52. One of these occurred in 1959, one in 1960,
and one in 1961. These reserves were reflected in the 1961 tabulation of the Board,
released to us early in 1962. If the total as above is adjusted by appropriate subtractions, the amount shown for claims for the reporting year is substantially reduced,
and reflects a much better picture of the accident rate, claims wise.
Sixteen meetings of the Interdepartmental Safety Committee were held, and
we again wish to extend our thanks and appreciation for the co-operation of the
members.
F. A. MacLean,
Services Engineer.
REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL OFFICER
ORGANIZATION
On August 10, 1961, the Deputy Minister issued a circular defining for all
officials concerned the further delegation of authority to Regional Highway Engineers, with the following purpose in mind:—
(a) Co-ordinate the activities of the various branches in the field.
(b) Ensure there is no duplication of effort.
(c) Ensure that all officials are cognizant of all the region's activities.
(d) Ensure that the best knowledge available is used.
In summary, to ensure the most efficient and economic use of brain-power,
man-power, and equipment.
TRAINING PROGRAMMES
Engineers-in-training.—We continue to expand this programme with the anticipated results. In this fiscal year, two more University of British Columbia graduates
were hired, bringing the total to seven graduate civil engineers.
Management Training Programme.—Full utilization of the courses conducted
by the Department of Education has been accomplished. All regions have appointed
lecturers to conduct the courses for the benefit of all supervisory personnel within
their regions.
Executive Development Course.—For this fiscal year, the following employees
completed the course successfully: T. A. Jacklin and W. I. N. Higgins. Total
graduates since inception of the plan is now four.
PROMOTIONS
Senior promotions in this year involve the appointment of Mr. J. A. Dennison
as Senior Maintenance Engineer and Mr. E. B. Wilkins as Design and Planning
Engineer, responsible for the over-all administration of Materials Testing Branch,
Traffic Branch, Location Branch, and Records and Estimates Branch. Mr. J. W.
Nelson was appointed Regional Construction Engineer, Kamloops.
 REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL OFFICER
I 59
EXAMINATIONS
Draughtsmen.—The Civil Service Commission continues to assist us in raising
the standard of our draughtsmen through the medium of comprehensive examination.
Engineering Aides.—The various branch heads involved are well satisfied with
the programme of examination for their engineering aides. There is positive proof
that our standard is improving and will continue to improve.
JOB SURVEYS
The major classification review of the year was that of Road Foremen. These
employees were placed in proper relationship to the men they supervise by the addition of one more grade, resulting in four classifications from Sub-Foreman to Senior
Foreman.
POSITION COMPETITIONS
Through the medium of the Civil Service Commission, forty-five competitions
were held.    Direct Departmental-wide competitions totalled thirty-one.
APPLICATIONS
A total of 1,137 applications was received, processed, and acknowledged.
DEATHS
The year was marred by the death of three long-term headquarters employees.
We pay tribute here to their record of efficiency and devotion to the activities of the
Department. They are Miss E. M. Brown, Secretary to the Deputy Minister (thirty-
one years' service); Mr. J. U. Copeman, Bridge Maintenance Engineer (thirty-six
years' service); and Mr. L. Harrison, Office Manager for Superintendent of Ferries
(thirty-one years' service).

 REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER 1  75
REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
There has been a continual increase in maintenance operations during the past
year.
The total expenditure for all maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries
amounted to $17,279,110. This was an increase of $249,110 over the previous
year's expenditures.
Over 19,000 miles are kept open in the winter-time, and the service has been
considerably expanded by increasing the efficiency of the operation and by obtaining
additional high-speed snow-plough equipment. Some of this new equipment was
tested in the Rogers Pass of the Trans-Canada Highway to prove its effectiveness
under the severe conditions in which it will be called upon to serve in the winter
of 1962/63.
Further radio-telephone installations in the northern part of the Province have
proved their worth in giving effective control not only of snow-ploughing crews, but
also to control and direct the regular maintenance crews. The system is now being
enlarged to include Vancouver Island in the network.
Increased funds, together with the knowledge gained by studying maintenance
procedures, have resulted in a higher standard of maintenance. An asphalt-patching
school will be put on in 1962 to train crews to give an improved type of maintenance
on asphalt pavements. Studies are being carried out on new types of sprays for
more effective brush and weed control; and also in the reverse, grass is being sown
in other places to prevent erosion.
Departmental crews continue to carry out minor betterments of roads with
their own equipment or with hired equipment on a day-labour basis. Many miles
of minor roads are thereby improved to meet the demand of the increased traffic
on them.
The maintenance of bridges continues to be satisfactorily carried out by district
bridge crews. These crews also replaced many wooden bridges with new and
improved structures. The Department also carries on a bridge-replacement programme with culvert and fills. This programme is on a reduced scale compared
with a few years ago, but it is keeping up with the deterioration of bridges which can
be replaced by this method.
On the whole, I am extremely pleased with the work that has been done in the
past by the maintenance crews, and with improved methods, supervision, and
machinery we can look forward to better-maintained roads in the years to come.

Senior Maintenance Engineer.

Roads
Routine maintenance was carried out on all roads within the district. Major
day-labour work included reconstruction work on Telegraph Road, Kangaroo Road,
Kilmalu Road, and also major regrading of a drainage canal in the Langford area.
An excessively dry summer last year resulted in numerous requests for dust-control,
and an extensive oiling programme was instituted to relieve this situation. Flush-
coating was carried out on numerous subdivision roads in the area, and will have
the effect of reducing grading requirements in future years.
Snow-removal
Generally moderate snowfall in the area produced no serious problems. Constant patrols during the winter season kept trouble spots to a minimum.
Bridges
There was no new construction or major reconstruction of bridges during the
last fiscal year. However, extensive repairs were done on Sooke River Bridge, Harris
Cove Bridge, and the Jordan River Bridge. Three steel bridges were painted—
namely, Colquitz, Thetis Overpass, and Tugwell Creek.

The winter proved a long and difficult one, with one storm alone producing
up to 42 inches of snow, an amount not seen at one time for some thirty or more
years.
Kamloops District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all trunk and main
highways. The previous year's programme of shoulder restoration, weed-control,
and sign maintenance was accelerated. Special costing to determine costs per mile
of Trans-Canada Highway maintenance was kept on all of the 61.4 miles for the
Design and Planning Engineer.
Sanding operations required approximately 20,000 yards of sand, and extremely heavy snowfalls required crews, during some snowfalls, to work around the
clock.
Routine maintenance was carried out on all other roads. Heavy snowfalls
caused some roads to be closed for a number of days.
Construction.—On the North Thompson Highway 3.22 miles were reconstructed to standard.
 J 86 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1961/62
On the Highland Valley Road 9 miles were reconstructed and gravelled, and

Columbia District
Roads
Maintenance on the Big Bend section of the Trans-Canada Highway consisted
principally of replacing old timber culverts, widening, gravelling, and application of
calcium chloride. On the Kicking Horse section a considerable number of rock
and mud slides were removed.   All other roads were maintained satisfactorily.
A logging company did considerable gravelling and maintenance on the Big
Bend section and kept the road snow-ploughed all winter to Mile 82.
Construction by day-labour consisted of completing reconstruction of North
Vermilion section, Mile 51.70 to Mile 55.33. The grade on a 1-mile section just
north of this project was raised 1.5 feet with gravel and repaved. This appears to
have prevented silt from coming through the pavement and to have eliminated frost
heaving in this section.
Kootenay-Columbia Highway, No. 95, was reconstructed from Athalmer Junction to Windermere, Mile 75.6 to Mile 80.12, to 48-foot road-bed standard.
A total of 2.90 miles of road-mix paving was completed on Edgewater approaches and the Lakeview Road. There were 1.80 miles of road-mix patching
completed, as well as remixing 1.20 miles on Athalmer Road.
Snowfall was normal, but increased sanding was required due to thawing and
winter rains. Frost penetration was above normal due to severe cold weather during
late February, and this caused a most severe break-up on the Kootenay-Columbia
Highway.
Flooding of rivers and creeks was extensive.
Bridges
Two bridges were reconstructed. More than usual maintenance was required
due to high water and increased amount of driftwood, as well as logging, on the Big

Atlin (North) District
Spring break-up came late in the year, which resulted in a high, fast run-off of
snow waters from the mountains. Several small bridges and culverts were washed
out on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway. Temporary repairs were effected in most
cases without undue interference caused to traffic. Permanent repairs were made
later.
A fairly dry summer permitted a general improvement to be made to existing
roads by district maintenance forces. Ditches were cleaned, replacement culverts
installed, and gravel was placed on some thin sections. Day-labour work was performed on the Dease Lake-Telegraph Creek Road. Nine miles were reconstructed
and gravelled.
An average snowfall permitted district forces to keep all roads open and stay

General repairs were made to the docks at Southbank and North Francois, with
considerable work on the substructure of the Southbank trestle.
Buildings
Two dry storage sheds, one each at Houston and Burns Lake, were completed.
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Roads in the Prince Rupert area and on the Queen Charlotte Islands were
maintained to a good standard throughout the year without difficulty, the only
exception being the maintenance of 10 miles of old pavement which is subject to
heavy traffic.
Seven miles of the Queen Charlotte City-Masset Road received major regravel-
ling, and 3.5 miles were widened. Crushed shot-rock surfacing on the Cassiar
Cannery Road was fragmented by the use of a grid roller for a distance of 5 miles.
In conjunction with Skeena (West) District, 3.5 miles of the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway, No. 16, along the Skeena River were riprapped, a total of
37,700 cubic yards of shot rock being placed from the latter part of January to
March 31st.
Project No. 1178 (Prince Rupert): Arterial Highway 122r was widened for
two blocks along McBride Street. A creosoted-timber retaining-wall 110 by 15
feet was erected.
Project No. 1178 (Watun River): One mile of subgrade was built on a revised
location at Watun River Hill to eliminate excessive grades.
The district this past year took over the winter maintenance of 17 additional
miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. This arrangement proved practicable and more efficient, but pointed to the need of additional snow-removal equipment for the district. Exceedingly heavy snowfall was experienced during the early
part of the winter. Again the use of chemicals, especially salt, proved most beneficial
in this area.
 REGIONAL REPORTS I   103
Bridges
All bridges in the district received minor maintenance, including brushing and
cleaning, and several were repainted. Three bridges were reconstructed, and one
minor bridge replaced by culvert and fill.
Buildings and Yards
Prince Rupert garage interior received two coats of fire-resistant paint. Paint
for the outside of the building was purchased. New eave-troughs were installed, and
the parts-room was renovated. Plans prepared by the district were submitted to
region showing location and layout of a proposed new garage. The yard was extended to provide additional material-storage space. New roofing was purchased
for the mechanical foreman's residence and the warehouse.
At the Port Clements garage a water system, along with a washroom, toilet,
and shower, was installed. The yard was extended to provide additional storage
space. Work is well under way on construction of a new house for the road maintenance foreman at Port Clements.
Skeena (East) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads. The district
forces continued a programme of major gravel renewal and improvements on 34
miles of secondary road and on 3 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway,
No. 16.
Construction.—Surfacing gravel was placed on 3.5 miles of the Northern
Trans-Provincial Highway between Price Creek and Boulder (West) Creek. Some
base gravel and surfacing gravel was placed on 2 miles of the same highway at
Boulder (East) Creek.
The approaches to the Canadian National Railways overpass at Mission Creek
(South Hazelton) were completed, except for surfacing gravel.
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions were heavy in December and January. Frequent rains after the middle of January resulted in very serious icing conditions, and
road sand requirements were double those of the previous year.
Bridges
Necessary maintenance was carried out on all bridges. Stoney Creek Bridge
was replaced after failure because of an overload. Hells Bells Bridge on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was replaced by a much shorter span.
Ferries
The ferries operated normally, except that rowboat service at Kitwanga was
suspended in January because of icing conditions in the Skeena River. New row-
boats and landing-pontoons were built for Cedarvale and Kitwanga Ferries.
Skeena (West) District
Roads
Maintenance.—District roads were maintained in good condition most of the
year.
Spring break-up was heavier than in the previous year. Load restrictions were
imposed March 18th and rescinded on May 14th.
 J  104 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1961/62
All gravel roads received extensive maintenance gravelling and improvement.
Signs were maintained in good order and brought up to standard.
Extensive patching was carried out on older pavement sections.
Weed-spraying was carried out where necessary.
On October 3rd approaches to four bridges on Highway No. 16 west of Terrace
and two bridges on Kalum Lake Road were washed out by flood-waters. Roads
were closed to traffic for twenty-four hours.
On October 13th high water in the Kitimat River washed out 1,000 feet of
Highway No. 25 between Terrace and Kitimat, closing the road for one day until a
detour could be constructed. The roadway was replaced and extensive riprap protection was carried out, as well as channel work in the river-bed.
On October 13th three bridge approaches on Highway No. 16 west of Terrace
and one bridge approach on Kalum Lake Road were again washed out by extreme
high water, closing roads for seven hours.
High water also caused four major washouts on Highway No. 16 east of Terrace, closing the road for fifteen hours.
One-half mile of roadway was destroyed on Kalum Lake Road, and numerous
washouts occurred on many side-roads.
Snow-removal.—Heavy icing conditions began in late November and continued
until March 15th. Snowfall was heavy, requiring constant ploughing and use of
heavy equipment. On January 26th, 30 inches of snow fell overnight. On January
27th two snowslides 40 miles west of Terrace on Highway No. 16 closed both the
railway and the highway to traffic for four days. When the slide was cleared away,
nine large tractors continued clearing the snow from the highway, which was open
only to single-lane traffic for over 65 miles.
Bridges
Eight bridges were rebuilt from the pilings up.
Repairs were carried out on forty-six bridges, and six bridges were painted.
All bridges were brushed and cleared out underneath.
Ferries
Satisfactory ferry service at Usk and Copper was supplied during the season.
Boat service was supplied from December until April with intermittent delays due
to ice in the river. Copper Ferry was launched May 2, 1961, and beached December 5, 1961. Usk Ferry was launched April 17, 1961, and beached December 21,
1961.
South Peace River District
Roads
Maintenance.—Roads were maintained to an adequate standard during the
year.
A particularly heavy programme of pavement patching was necessary to maintain sections of old pavement.
A programme of weed and brush control was carried out on trunk highways
and on side-roads in farming areas. Approximately 200 miles of right-of-way were
sprayed, on widths ranging from 66 to 200 feet.
Our district sign crew continued to improve and maintain highway signs
throughout the district.
Construction.—Good weather conditions prevailed for most of the construction
season.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
I  105
On the John Hart Highway, pit-run and crushed gravel base courses were
completed from Mile 202.0 to Mile 212.5 prior to paving. From Mile 187 to Mile
202, widening, drainage improvements, and base strengthening were carried out;
this work was 70 per cent complete as at March, 1962.
The south approach was constructed to the proposed Hudson Hope Ferry.
Seven miles of the Spirit River Road were shaped and gravelled from the
Alberta Border west.
Fifty-eight miles of main side-roads and school-bus routes were newly gravelled;
also 14.5 miles of other roads were regravelled.
Twenty-eight miles of side-roads were cleared and high-graded, with culverts
installed.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was lighter than average. Serious ice conditions
resulted with alternate thawing and freezing temperatures. Large quantities of sand
and road salt were used as severe ice conditions reached an all-time high.
Bridges
Crassiar Bridge, No. 23, and Lillico Bridge, No. 15, on the John Hart Highway
were reconstructed. Both are pile trestles. Reconstruction of the Riley Bridge,
No. 84, was commenced during the winter months.
A new 50-foot steel-stringer span was constructed over Maurice Creek on the
ferry approach road opposite Hudson Hope.
One small pile trestle bridge (17-foot span) was constructed on a farm feeder
road.
Normal maintenance, including cleaning, painting, deck and fence repairs, etc.,
was carried out on other bridges.
Ferries
The ferry-landings at the Twidwell Bend and Clayhurst Ferries had to be
attended to continuously due to fluctuating water-levels, otherwise ferry operations
were normal.
An ice crossing was maintained at Clayhurst during the winter months.
