 HIGHWAYS   REPORT
REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, B.C., August 23,1965.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—Herewith are submitted district reports for the fiscal year 1964/65.
A statement of the mileages of highways shows that the total length of Provincial highways is 25,639 miles and the total length of classified highways is 865 miles.
The Provincial highways are comprised of 3,752 miles of trunk highways, 1,845
miles of main highways, and 20,042 miles of other highways. The classified highways (arterial and secondary) are comprised of 472 miles of trunk highways, 191
miles of main highways, and 202 miles of other highways.
The total expenditure on maintenance of roads, ferries, and bridges was
$21,899,700.
Included in the cost of maintenance is an expenditure of $3,959,672 for snow
removal. This is an increase of more than $1,400,000 over the previous year and
reflects the severe winter conditions throughout the Province. The total lengths of
roads kept open was 20,263 miles.
The total mileage of roads constructed or reconstructed by day labour was 389.
Improvements and minor betterments were made to 748 miles.
The number of ferries under the supervision of the Department is 51. These
ferries carried 1,990,257 vehicles and 4,993,015 passengers including drivers.
There were 682 right-of-way settlements negotiated during the year. The
total cost of these was $2,681,682.
Again there was a substantial increase in the number of subdivision plans
handled and also in the number of permits issued in the 1964 calendar year. The
total number of subdivisions handled was 4,341, and 821 of these were adjacent
to controlled-access highways.
The number of permits issued for entrances on controlled-access highways
was 391 and for entrances on non-controlled highways was 983. There were 2,307
permits issued for other works on Crown lands.
F. A. MacLean,
Assistant Deputy Minister.
 C 10 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER
Victoria, B.C., August 23,1965.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—Submitted herewith are reports from the Senior Bridge Engineer, the
Design and Planning Engineer, the Director of Construction, and the Senior Paving
Engineer on the activities of the branches under their supervision during the past
fiscal year.
The total length of roads constructed or reconstructed by contract was 91 miles.
Of this amount, only 3 miles was on the Trans-Canada Highway, construction now
being virtually completed.
The length of plant-mix pavement laid during the year was 328 miles. In
addition to this there was laid a total of 222 miles of road-mix and pulvimix
pavement.
Construction was completed on 28 bridges, the most noteworthy being the
Port Mann Bridge on the Trans-Canada Highway over the Fraser River. There
were also 17 bridges under construction but not completed at the end of the year.
Expenditures on construction were reduced, and this was due principally to the
completion of the Port Mann Bridge and other costly structures on the Trans-
Canada Highway.
The length of final highway location surveys completed was 271 miles, and
the length of office design complete with estimates was 303 miles. Of the latter,
9 miles were urban street design.
A considerable number of preliminary soils investigations for new route
locations and 49 investigations for bridge foundations were carried out during the
year. Investigations were made also on two large landslides and remedial action
taken.
Twenty-two traffic signals were installed and nine grade railway crossings were
equipped with automatic warning-signals. Lane-use signals were installed on the
three-lane Lions Gate Bridge and Stanley Park Causeway.
Lighting was provided in three tunnels and also at several intersections and
interchanges.
D. D. Godfrey,
Chief Engineer.
 Port Mann Bridge, Trans-Canada Highway No. 401
 C 12
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
The outstanding event of the year in the field of bridge construction was unquestionably the completion and opening to traffic of the monumental Port Mann
Bridge on the Trans-Canada Highway just east of Vancouver. This four-lane
high-speed structure with its stiffened tied-arch main span and North America's
first " orthotopic " steel deck has attracted the attention of the world's bridge-
builders and has in fact lately been officially recognized as foremost among major
bridges built recently in Canada for " the creative use of steel. " Spanning the
mighty Fraser River near its mouth, this bridge now dominates the landscape and
is contributing tremendously to the economic welfare of the adjacent metropolitan
and suburban areas.
Although eclipsed by the Port Mann Bridge in magnitude, some 27 smaller
but still important bridges were completed during the period under review, and
a further 17 such structures were in course of construction at the conclusion of the
year. The total gross expenditure on bridge construction of $7,172,000 compares
with an expenditure of $15,760,000 last year, the decrease being a reflection of
the completion of the Port Mann Bridge and of the many costly structures on the
Trans-Canada Highway in Burnaby Municipality and elsewhere.
The appended tabulations give detailed information of the structures completed and of those under construction, while a perusal of these tabulations will
reveal the scattered nature of our bridge-building operations. Construction of the
major bridges across the Columbia River at Kinnaird and the Kootenay River at
Brilliant is proceeding, as is that of the important structures over the North Thompson River at Barriere and the Kootenay River at Fort Steele, while the unique pre-
stressed concrete suspension bridge over the Peace River at Hudson Hope was
successfully completed and now stands as further evidence of British Columbia's
pioneering proclivities in bridge-building. The twin-tunnel underpass carrying
the Southern Trans-Canada Highway under the Canadian Pacific Railway near
Greenwood was completed and opened to traffic, thus removing the long-standing
dangerous bottleneck at this location associated with the former narrow, ill-aligned
tunnel.
The year saw considerable bridge-building activity not only in the Lower
Mainland area and on Vancouver Island, where six bridges were strengthened and
widened to full modern standards, but also on the North Thompson Highway, the
Kootenay-Columbia Highway, the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, and the
Terrace-Kitimat Highway, thus indicating the intensive effort being made to improve the highway system in these more remote parts of the Province. Our
advance planning over this period was directed largely to the design of structures
for construction in these remoter areas.
While some damage to a number of bridges was suffered due to overheight
and (or) overweight loads and a few minor obsolescent timber bridges were lost
by flood action, it can be reported that British Columbia was spared the great loss
of bridges which occurs when natural disasters hit other areas of North America.
The material-supply situation was satisfactory during the period reviewed, as
was the competitive attitude on the part of contractors bidding on bridge-construction work. Weather conditions were generally conducive to construction operations, and the Department's district forces maintained their tradition of rapid and
efficient repairs or replacement of such of our older timber bridges as called for
attention.
 REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
C 13
While the Bridge Engineer's staff performed efficiently in the design and
supervision of construction during the year, the policy of retaining the services of
private consulting engineers to augment our own efforts was continued, and the
design of several large structures intended for future construction is presently
entrusted to such consultants.
Notwithstanding the mammoth job of bridge construction that has been performed in the Province during recent years, there remains an equally mammoth job
ahead if the highway system is to keep abreast of the constantly increasing demands
made on it by the expanding economy of the Province. The bridge-construction
programme is designed to match the need.

  C 20 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1964/65
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION (CONTRACTS)
The mileage of highway completed by contract on all highways was 90.81
miles, of which 2.31 miles were multi-laned. The mileage of work on the Trans-
Canada Highway was comparatively small this year, as the only major work required
was to complete approximately 1 mile of the multi-lane section (Route No. 401)
and approximately 0.5 mile of the three tunnel sections in the Fraser River Canyon
at Yale, Ferrabee, and Alexandra. A short revision is still in progress at Yoho
Bridge. Route No. 401, from West Vancouver to Rosedale via the Second Narrows
Bridge, was paved and opened in May, 1964.
Project No. 1100 on the Salmo-Creston Cut-off, Southern Trans-Canada
Highway, was completed and paved, although the cut-off was opened to the public
last year.
Two projects, Nos. 1285 and 1341, on the Rossland-Sheep Lake Cut-off
(Route No. 3b) were practically completed, and the remaining contract (Project
No. 1099) was completed and base processed (5.05 miles). The 18-mile route
was completed sufficiently to open to the public in November, 1964.
Project No. 1357 on the Prince George By-pass was completed, and one lift of
bituminous plant-mixed base process applied. The by-pass (via the new Fraser
River Bridge) was opened to the public during the year.
Two widening contracts were started on the John Hart-Peace River Highway.
Project No. 1358 (18.77 miles), Mile 163 to Mile 184 north of Prince George,
is 71 per cent completed, and Project No. 1489 (8.53 miles) has just been awarded.
When these two sections are paved, the entire highway will be paved (256 miles)
from Prince George to Dawson Creek.
Reconstruction is in progress on the Chetwynd-Hudson Hope Road via the
new Peace River Bridge, which is now open. The most northerly of the three
projects, Section 1 (12.67 miles), is 77 per cent completed. The other two
contracts, south to Chetwynd, have been awarded for completion in 1966. This
41-mile road will be the main access to the Portage Mountain (Peace River)
Dam site.
The major work in the next few years will be the Yellowhead Route on the
North Thompson and Northern Trans-Provincial Highways. The work is well
under way, with Project No. 1361, Vavenby to McMurphy, completed this year
(14.80 miles), and the next three contracts started, from McMurphy to Cedarside
(89.12 miles). The remaining two contracts, to the Alberta Border (62.53 miles),
have been advertised, and will be awarded early in April.
On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between Prince George and
McBride, work has commenced or been completed on all sections of the 89.81-mile
gap between Willow River and West Twin Creek.
A 34.10-mile contract (Project No. 1476) was let for complete grading
between Willow River and Hungary Creek. A 23.22-mile contract for clearing and
grubbing (Project No. 1477) was let between Hungary Creek and Dome Creek.
It is anticipated a grading contract will be let between Hungary Creek and Ptarmigan
Creek (33.44 miles) late in 1965. Two other grading contracts have been under
way for approximately 18 months—Project No. 1382 (10.04 miles) and Project
No. 1290 (12.39 miles). They are 18 and 89 per cent complete. The remaining sections were either completed previously or are existing roads. Construction
of the approaches to the proposed crossing of the Fraser at McBride is under way.
Bridge construction will commence next year.
  C 22 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
Reconstruction is well under way on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
east of Terrace to West Boulder Creek, the only major section not yet reconstructed
west of Prince George. Two projects (totalling 11 miles) have been completed,
two projects (9 miles) have been started, and two clearing and grubbing projects
(31 miles) have just been awarded. Reconstruction contracts on this section will
be awarded later next year. One other section, Project No. 1379, Mudflat Creek
Overhead to Seaton (7.77 miles), is 64 per cent completed.
The 30-mile section of reconstruction on the Island Highway south of Sayward
(Projects Nos. 1215 and 1216), started in 1961, was completed, and 15 miles
bituminous base processed.
Progress on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway is as follows: Completed (gravel)
and open, Stewart to Hanna Creek (Mile 47); almost completed to South Bell-
Irving River (Mile 58); clearing and grubbing in progress to North Bell-Irving
River (Mile 96). The next 51-mile section to Burrage River (Mile 147) has not
yet been started. Mile 147 to Mile 269, at the north end of Dease Lake, has been
completed by contract, and from there the road is open to the Alaska Highway.
To date 166 miles of construction have been completed by contract on this highway
since 1957. An additional 12 miles from Stewart northerly have been completed
by day labour.
A total of 44 miles of the Kootenay-Columbia Highway, south of Radium,
has been completed by contracts since 1962. This highway has now been completely
reconstructed from Cranbrook to Golden.
During the fiscal year, quantities in road construction contracts were as
follows:—
Solid rock cu. yd.    2,263,936!
Other materials cu. yd.    7,925,5811
Clearing and grubbing ac. 1,750

 REPORT OF SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
C 27
REPORT OF THE SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
GENERAL
For yet another year, progress on paving was delayed by poor summer weather
and limited capacity of the paving industry. A spell of mild weather which occurred
in late September and most of October gave some relief, but the quality of work
performed so late in the season is below the standard that can be achieved in the
summer months.
During the year a total of 328.27 miles of all highways was paved with asphalt
concrete, of which 12.11 miles were multi-lane highways. A total of 221.68 miles
of road-mix base processing or paving was completed and 209.84 miles of surface-
treatment work performed.
BASE STRENGTHENING AND HOT-MIX ASPHALT-PAVING
CONSTRUCTION
Fourteen projects carried over from 1963 were completed during the year.
Of 26 new paving contracts let from this office during the year, 14 were completed.
In addition, four contracts were let as winter work for the production in stockpile
of crushed granular surfacing aggregate and paving aggregate. The experimental
open-graded carpet-coat completed on Marine Drive West, Vancouver, under
Project S-0563 appears to be performing satisfactorily, and it is proposed to make
further use of this type of surface where its use seems desirable. A 3-mile test section
of plant-mixed dense-graded thin bituminous surfacing (trade-name Dix-Seal) was
laid between Spuzzum and Alexandra Bridge. A short section of this same material
was also laid to reduce surface slickness on the north-west approaches of the Pattullo
Bridge. This hot-mixed paver-laid material may, in suitable circumstances, be
considered for use as an alternative form of surfacing to the open-graded carpet-coat
mentioned above, or to a standard chip seal-coat. The service performance of this
dense-graded thin bituminous surfacing is now under observation. An innovation
this year has been the specification and use on three contracts of an electronic screed-
control device on asphalt-paving machines. Present experience is very promising,
and marked improvement has been noted in the control of transverse slope of pavements laid with the device compared to pavement laid when it was made inoperative.
It is proposed to gradually extend the use of electronic screed control to a majority
of paving contracts. Probably the most difficult problem encountered this year was
the design and construction of a suitable asphalt surface for the Port Mann Bridge
deck. Because of the flexibility of the orthotropic bridge deck, it was necessary for
the asphalt paving mixture to meet unusual criteria established by the bridge designers. To meet these criteria, it was necessary to carry out a very large number of
mix designs with a variety of aggregates and asphalt-binders. For the final design,
a special asphalt-binder had to be ordered and several aggregates blended with
hydrated lime to meet grading and anti-stripping requirements. The paving mixture
had to be laid with unusual care so as not to damage the protective anti-corrosive
coating on the steel bridge deck and to compensate for differences in compaction
resulting from differing thickness over the steel lap plates. The contractor on this
project made a commendable effort to achieve a good job and introduced the first
automatic joint-matcher to be used on a paver in this Province. The service performance of this pavement is being watched carefully.
 C 28 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
PULVIMIXING AND SURFACE TREATMENT
In 1964 a further step was made in transfer of responsibility for execution of
pulvimixing and minor surface treatment from the Paving Branch to regional maintenance. The equipment of one of the two former pulvimixing crews was dispersed
to the regions, and only one complete Departmental pulvimix crew was used to
assist Regions Nos. 1, 2, and 3 in meeting their road mixing commitments. This
crew pulvimixed a total of 45.04 miles of roadway and sand-sealed 3.55 miles of
highway. A second nucleus crew, provided with suitable equipment was used jointly
with district forces to perform sand- and chip-sealing work in Regions Nos. 2, 3,
and 4. This crew, in co-operation with district forces, applied chip seal to 36.35
miles of highway, including 0.85 mile applied on Trans-Canada Highway at Campbell Creek underpass, and sand-sealed approximately 88.75 miles of highway. In
addition, 3.45 miles of gravel shoulder were treated with asphalt and chips west of
Hells Gate tunnel. Two contracts were let for the production of crushed cover
aggregate in stockpile in readiness for chip seal-coat work in 1965, one of which
was substantially completed by the end of the fiscal year.
IN-SERVICE TRAINING
Short training courses were held in Regions Nos. 1,3, and 4 for laboratory
technicians at the end of April and early May, and additional paving courses were
also held in Prince George and Vancouver in December to increase the proficiency
of selected junior engineering aides. Two engineers-in-training were employed at
headquarters and on various projects from June until October in the course of their
training plan.
Annual proficiency examinations were held in 1965.
PERSONNEL
The year 1964 was notable for the loss or transfer of valuable personnel. Mr.
C. E. Thorpe, Paving Engineer in Prince George, retired. Mr. T. R. Johnson,
Headquarters Engineer, was transferred to the Traffic Branch. He was succeeded
by Mr. P. Barnes. One Resident Engineer and three continuously employed Engineering Aides 3 resigned.
In September, 1964, the Senior Paving Engineer presented a paper, "Some
Notes on Asphalt Specifications," to the Public Works Association of British Columbia at its annual conference.
In November, 1964, the Senior Paving Engineer and three Paving Superintendents, Messrs. E. G. Booth, J. Hynds, and H. H. Sawatzky, attended the annual
general meeting and technical session of the Canadian Technical Asphalt Association, at which Mr. J. W. G. Kerr, Senior Paving Engineer, was elected first vice-
president of the Canadian Technical Asphalt Association for the year 1965. The
Senior Paving Engineer also attended the annual general meeting and technical conference of the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists.

Planning Section
During the year the Planning Section obtained sufficient low-level photography
for production of high-order mapping of the Lougheed Highway between the Pitt
River and the Stave River, of the Okanagan Highway between Kelowna and Ellison
Overhead, of the Patricia Bay Highway between Victoria and Swartz Bay, and at
the site of the landslide on the Hope—Princeton section of the Southern Trans-
Canada Highway. High-level photography was obtained for production of low-
order mapping in Rogers Pass for avalanche control and on the Kamloops-Vernon
Highway for route analysis between Monte Creek and Falkland. Uncontrolled
mapping of the entire Revelstoke-Mica Dam route (91 miles) was also obtained.
Preliminary intersection and interchange designs were completed on the following junctions: (1) Bentley Road in Whalley; (2) south approach to Oak Street
Bridge on the Deas Tunnel Throughway; (3) River Road on Chilliwack By-pass;
(4) approaches to Fraser River Bridge at Quesnel; (5) Tete Jaune Junction of
the North Thompson and Northern Trans-Provincial Highways.
Preliminary layouts and investigations were completed on the following
projects: (1) Fraser River crossing at Quesnel; (2) Lions Gate Bridge to the
Trans-Canada Highway through West Vancouver; (3) Fort Steele Restoration
parking; (4) Tadanac to Trail Southern Trans-Canada Alternatives; (5) Skeena
Crossing to Hazelton, Northern Trans-Provincial Highway; (6) Grindrod to
Armstrong, Okanagan Highway; (7) Monte Creek to Falkland, Kamloops-Vernon
Highway; (8) Simon Fraser University approach roads; (9) 16th Avenue to
University of British Columbia campus.
 C 42 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
In addition the Planning Section completed design, plan preparation, and
estimates on the following projects: (1) Langley By-pass (four lanes); (2) Simon
Fraser University Access (via Curtis Street); (3) Willow River to Hungary Creek,
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway; (4) Chappell Creek to Cedarside, North
Thompson Highway; (5) Cedarside to District Lot 5666, North Thompson Highway; (6) Hudson Hope to Chetwynd (Section 3); (7) Willow Flats to Coyote
Creek, John Hart-Peace River Highway; (8) Ruby Creek to Haig (Katz Flats),
Lougheed Highway;  (9) Sword Creek relocation, Chilcotin Highway.
Computer Section
Use of the I.B.M. 1620 computer programmes by the Victoria and regional
offices rose steadily throughout the year. The Department is one of the largest
users of the computer in the Government, and currently takes up 25 to 30 per cent
of its total running time.
During the year, 19 projects totalling 215 miles were processed on the earthwork programme; the D.T.M. Ill preliminary survey programme was used on only
one project, involving some 15 miles of highway; and 23 traverses were run on
Surmap 13.
Additional auxiliary equipment is to be installed in September, which will
again increase the flexibility of computer programmes; it is also hoped that a
computer-operated cross-sections plotter will be obtained in the near future.

MATERIALS TESTING BRANCH
E. E. Readshaw, Senior Materials Engineer
Introduction
This year has been a very busy one, especially in the field of preliminary soils
investigation for new route locations. Much of this work was done through the
winter of 1963/64 on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between Prince
George and McBride and continued on through the spring and early summer of
1964. Weather conditions were very poor, with continuous rain and mild temperatures, which made it extremely difficult to move equipment through the bush.
The winter of 1964/65 was, by contrast, extremely cold, with temperatures
of 30 below zero being experienced for several weeks running. Drilling operations
were carried out through these periods on the Big Bend Highway between Revel-
 C 46 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
stoke and Mica Creek. Credit must be given to the drillers and field personnel
who successfully carried out their duties under these trying and uncomfortable
conditions.
Bridge Foundations
A total of 49 bridge-foundation investigations was carried out during the year.
The distribution of sites investigated is shown below. Number

An intensive programme was carried out at the proposed Mission Bridge site.
Here one 3-man drill rig worked seven months, a large part of the time on a barge
moored in the Fraser River. Sixteen test-holes were put down to depths up to 430
feet. Soils consisted of fine sands, silts, and soft clays overlying bedrock on the
south side.
Another important site is the proposed crossing of the Arrow Lakes at Needles.
The bridge will replace the existing ferry on Highway No. 6 after the level of the
Arrow Lakes is raised on completion of the Lower Arrow Dam at Robson. The
site is a difficult one, being underlain by great depths of soft silts and lacustrine
clays. To date 23 test-holes on the three alternate lines have been drilled to depths
up to 250 feet. A refraction seismic survey was also carried out to map bedrock
profiles on the east bank.
Soil Surveys
It has become more and more essential of recent years to obtain fairly detailed
information about the soil types, depth to bedrock, and the location of difficult
construction areas on new highway locations. This year diamond drills have been
used extensively for this purpose on 12 projects. This information is in addition to
that obtained for the numerous bridge-sites on these routes.
Projects investigated were as follows: Golden-McMurdo, Highway No. 95;
West Trail-Merry's Flats, Trail; Fernie-Hosmer, Southern Trans-Canada Highway; Crowsnest-Sparwood, Southern Trans-Canada Highway; Bowron River-
Hungary Creek, Northern Trans-Provincial Highway; Hungary Creek-Dome
Creek, Northern Trans-Provincial Highway; Terrace-Copper River, Northern
Trans-Provincial Highway; Blue River-Chappell Creek, Highway No. 5; Tete
Jaune-Alberta Boundary, Northern Trans-Provincial Highway; Revelstoke-Mica
Creek Access, Big Bend Highway; Yoho Bridge-Park Gate, Trans-Canada Highway; Simon Faser University Access Road, Burnaby.
 REPORT OF DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER
C 47
On nearly all of these projects, areas of peat and soft clay were encountered
where fills will have to be constructed slowly to avoid slide failures. On the North
Thompson Highway several such sections adjoin the Canadian National Railway,
and it is particularly important to prevent failures occurring in the new fills which
may affect the railway. Crossings of the Trans-mountain pipe-line also are designed on the North Thompson and Northern Trans-Provincial Highways near
Tete Jaune and Redpass, requiring detailed information of the soil strengths so
that protective structures can be established.
The seismic technique for finding depths to bedrock was used on several
occasions during the year—at Needles, the Kicking Horse Canyon, and the Upper
Levels Highway. Experience with the technique is growing, and, provided the
results can be checked with drill-holes, the bedrock profile can be found with 90
per cent accuracy. The cost of such surveys is much lower than for drilling, and
substantially more information about the bedrock profile is obtained compared to
the drill-hole technique.
Landslides
Two large landslides at the Kiskatinaw River and at Hells Gate Bluffs were
investigated. In addition, several smaller slides were studied and remedial action
undertaken. At the Kiskatinaw River Bridge on the Alaska Highway last May, the
north approach fill began to slip for a distance of 500 feet, endangering the bridge.
Action to remedy the slip was taken immediately by excavating the upper sliding
material, providing a flatter slope and installing perforated pipe drains in areas
where underground water was discovered during the excavation operations. Since
last year no further movement has occurred. This slide is only one of many on
the Alaska Highway between Fort St. John and Dawson Creek, and an intensive
study is under way to find the best general solution. The soil in the area is clay-
shale and clay-till, derived from the shale, which is unstable at very flat slopes.
Serious instability was discovered during construction at a rock cut at Hells
Gate, in the Fraser Canyon. A study of the forces and strains acting was started,
using optical strain gauges to measure movements. A firm of consultants specializing in rock mechanics proposed to use a pattern of rock bolts to tie the slope together
and to stiffen the surface skin of rock, which, under the action of residual internal
stresses, was tending to flow. Forty-foot prestressed rock anchors to tie together
the large loose blocks of granite were also to be installed. This work is now 701 per
cent complete.
Pavement Design
Using the data describing rebound characteristics of pavement structures,
overlay designs were prepared for 233 miles of existing highway. Four miles of
newly constructed highways were checked before being paved so that soft spots
and design deficiencies could be remedied at an early stage.
During the spring break-up period, 160 short control-sections of highway
were evaluated. Benkelman Beam readings were taken during eight periods of
the year. These readings showed how the strength of the road increased and decreased with time, thus enabling spring load restrictions to be imposed at the critical
period.
Performance ratings and condition surveys were carried out on 3,750 miles
of paved highway twice during the year. Such information provided a valuable
check on the behaviour and probable future life of the highways of the Province.
  ■
REPORT OF DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER C 49
Gravel-proving
Regional crews investigated about 150 gravel prospects during the year. Much
of the work was done for the proposed new construction on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway and the North Thompson Highway. Many deposits were
located by employing air photographs.
Concrete Design and Inspection
About 90 separate projects involving the design of concrete mixes and the
subsequent control of the quality of the end product were completed. The production of precast concrete guard-rail in Vancouver, Nelson, and Cranbrook required
continuous quality control checks of the concrete to ensure that specifications were
fulfilled.
The regional laboratories took over an increasing amount of the concrete-mix
design problems.
Materials Inspection
Inspection of materials purchased by the Department was continued, and the
volume of this work continually increases. All orders for materials such as concrete products, piles, lumber, guard-rail, paint, cement, and culvert pipe were
inspected before delivery by the regional Materials Engineer in Vancouver or Prince
George.
Paint-testing
Testing of paint to Canadian Government specifications for formulation
approval was carried out for four manufacturers on 11 samples. Control testing of
paint with such formulation approval was completed on 52 samples.
Testing of 18 samples of traffic paint submitted by manufacturers wishing to
bid for supply contracts was conducted. Control tests were done on 60 batches
already in production. Glass beads for use on traffic paints were also tested. The
Purchasing Commission and the Ferry Authority requested testing on 55 samples
of paint to be used on Government contracts. A new paint system proposed for
use on the Port Mann Bridge and several rust preventive compounds were also
evaluated.
Several field complaints of unsatisfactory or unusual performance of paint
were investigated, and recommendations given to correct the problems.
Training
With so much field work going on, no formal periods of training were possible
for the drilling crews. However, individual foremen were brought into the laboratory to receive instruction in soil identification and sampling procedures.
Courses in concrete technology were arranged at each of the regional laboratories. The courses ran for three days, with resident engineers and concrete inspectors attending. Practical demonstrations of mix design were made, and instruction
dealing with the field control aspects of concreting given.
Special Problems
The epoxy surfacing put on the Lions Gate Bridge in 1963 was found to be considerably worn after the severe Vancouver weather conditions this winter. The
damage was caused by the high proportion of traffic using tire chains. A laboratory simulation of this type of impact wear was carried out which correlated with
field experience. About 40 per cent of the vehicles using the bridge wore tire chains,
representing about 200,000 vehicles during the worst two weeks of the winter when
 C 50 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
the wear occurred. To repair the damage, special equipment was developed to
cure a new lift of epoxy resin. This work is being done successfully during the night
when traffic volume is lowest.
A special test was carried out to assess the effectiveness of a new salt as a
wood preservative. So far it appears that posts and piles can be successfully treated,
but difficulties are encountered when treating the heartwood Douglas fir used for
structural lumber.
Tests were also carried out on corrugated metal culvert pipe made from continuously spiral-wound plate. Strength tests have so far showed that this type of
pipe is as strong as the conventional riveted plate type of corrugated metal pipe
when manufactured to certain specifications.
An experiment to measure the pore water pressures on sections in compacted
earthfill was started last year, and it is hoped to obtain readings from the tensio-
meters during this spring and summer.
Gauges in the fill above large and deeply buried culverts were installed in 1963
and 1964, and readings of the pressures being experienced have been obtained.
The data have confirmed that pressures over culverts can reach values as high as
150 per cent of the nominal overburden weight on the culvert.
The repair of certain concrete bridge decks subject to serious spalling due to
freezing and thawing conditions as well as de-icing salts commenced in the fall of
1964. A small bridge near Revelstoke was resurfaced with IVi inches of concrete after about Vi inch of the old concrete had been removed. The new surface
is smooth riding, has bonded well with the old surface, and shows no signs of
deterioration. As there are many such bridge decks in the Province, a programme
for resurfacing them in this manner is being undertaken.
TRAFFIC BRANCH
J. H. Harding, Senior Traffic Engineer
During the past year the Traffic Branch continued to co-operate with individuals and organizations for the purpose of research in the allied fields of traffic safety,
community planning, standardization of traffic-control devices, and traffic operations. The Senior Traffic Engineer represented the Department as chairman of
the Canadian Council on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, a member of the Technical and Research Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, a director of the
British Columbia Safety Council, and a member of both the Canadian Good Roads
Association Traffic and Operations Committee and the Technical Committee of
the Capital Region Planning Board.
The number of short traffic counts taken in the past summer was expanded to
766 stations. Three more permanent stations were established (at Port Mann
Bridge, Kinnaird, and Enderby), bringing the total throughout the Province to 17.
Permanent counters record traffic volumes continuously throughout the year and
may therefore be used to eliminate seasonal variations from the more numerous
short summer counts taken in close proximity. A large number of special short
counts were taken for various purposes, including three major transportation studies
carried out by consulting firms—two for Interior cities and one for the Department.
Vehicle turning movements were observed and recorded for some 60 intersections
throughout the Province to determine whether flashing beacons or full " stop and
go " signals were warranted for safer and more efficient traffic control. Count data
show traffic volumes increased in 1964 over the same period in 1963 by approximately 12 per cent in the Northern Interior, 9 per cent in the Southern Interior,
5 per cent in the Fraser Valley, and 4 per cent on Vancouver Island.
 REPORT OF CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
C 51
Sixteen new " stop and go " traffic signals of various types and six flashing
beacons were installed. Nine more grade railway crossings were equipped with
automatic warning-signals. Twenty-two lane-use signal bridges were erected on
the Lions Gate Bridge and Stanley Park Causeway to provide increased operating
flexibility for that three-lane facility.
Lighting systems containing almost 12,000 lineal feet of fluorescent tubing
were installed in three more Fraser Canyon tunnels. Illumination for the Port
Mann Bridge, which was designed for the Department by a consulting firm, was
provided by 14,000 lineal feet of fluorescent tubing set into the bridge hand-rail.
This is the largest installation of its kind in North America. The rural intersection
lighting programme continued with installation of some 338 mercury vapour lumi-
naires at various widespread locations. One hundred and thirty of these were used
to light interchanges on the Port Mann-Mount Lehman Road section of Highway
No. 401.
Prior to the opening of this latest four-lane section of the Trans-Canada Highway, some 200 large freeway-type directional guide signs had to be designed and
manufactured.
Many intersection improvement projects were designed by the Traffic Branch
and construction completed by district crews to give greater capacity, reduce congestion, and increase safety. Designs for many new Departmental construction
projects were checked for operational adequacy.
The more routine aspects of traffic engineering were handled throughout the
year. Radar speed checks were taken at various locations, resulting in some speed-
limit revisions; applications for traffic signals and crosswalks were investigated;

CLAIMS AND SAFETY PROMOTION
It is of interest to note that in addition to the automobile damage claims there
were a great number of other types of claims dealt with. These included claims
arising out of flooding; claims for diminished water supply or water supply cut off;
claims for damage to vehicles and bodily injury arising out of collision with piles
of gravel or road-mix left overnight, allegedly poorly signed or entirely without
warning-signs.
Litigation resulted in eight claims of all types in which the Government was
plaintiff and 15 cases in which a Crown agency or government employee was named
as defendant.
Motor-vehicles collided with 31 lamp standards, for which our repair costs
were recovered. Twenty-four of these occurred in Burnaby and Delta—12 in each
district. We replaced 32 windshields in private vehicles, the breakage of which
occurred mainly from sanding operations or gravel coming off the box.
Dozens of flasher lights and guard-rails were damaged, the repair costs of
which were recovered in most cases.
Sixteen meetings of the Interdepartmental Safety Committee were held, with
an average attendance of seven members. Six meetings of the Department of Highways Headquarters Safety Committee were held. This Committee was responsible
for the promotion of safety within the Department, and a great deal of effective
work was done in this connection.

Insurance and Safety Officer.

 C 72 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
The improving standard of highway maintenance has been continued
throughout the Province. This has been accomplished partly through technical
advancement and partly through greater efficiency among highway crews and
machines in general.
Total expenditure for all maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries
amounted to $21,899,700, which was 12 per cent higher than the previous year's
expenditure. A total of 20,263 miles was maintained throughout the year and
kept open during the severe winter. Snowfall was much above normal, particularly
in Region No. 1. Comox Airport reported 23 inches of snowfall in one seven-hour
period on December 29th, and this will convey some idea of the intensity of the fall
on Vancouver Island. The response from our crews was excellent, and even the
most minor roads were kept open under difficult conditions. Many letters of
commendation were received from the travelling public, voicing their appreciation
of the service provided during this difficult period. Because of the heavy snowfall
in the Lower Mainland region and Vancouver Island, the quantity of chemicals
used for ice control was much above that normally used.
Except for minor closures, all our main routes — Rogers Pass, Blueberry-
Paulson, Salmo-Creston, and John Hart Highways — were kept open and in good
condition. The use of Departmental-designed equipment on the major routes has
greatly facilitated and accelerated our winter maintenance.
On January 9, 1965, the Hope-Princeton Highway was blocked by a major
slide 9 miles east of Hope. The road was open to traffic in 10 days after a 4-mile-
long detour road was constructed.
The increasing use of sterilants, weed and brush killer, combined with a more
intensive brush-cutting and mowing programme, has considerably improved the
appearance of our roadsides. The purchase of a larger hydro-seeder will ensure
that the seeding of slopes on our newly constructed roads and highways will be
greatiy expanded.
Side roads in general are receiving more attention, with the more travelled
routes being paved when funds permit, and many others being treated with dust-
layer for the convenience of the roadside residents and the travelling public.
Our radio system was expanded and proved to be invaluable during the
prolonged severe winter.
All bridges were maintained and reconstructed where necessary, and the
programme of bridge elimination with culvert and fill was continued wherever
possible.
A large programme of improvements to minor roads was undertaken last year,
resulting in an expenditure of almost $12,000,000.
I am pleased, therefore, to report that maintenance in general is expanding
and is improving in standard through greater efficiency from our employees and
more suitable maintenance equipment.

Senior Maintenance Engineer.

Alberni, Burnaby, Chilliwack, Comox, Cowichan-Newcastle, Delta, Dewdney,
Esquimalt, Lillooet (South), Mackenzie, Nanaimo-Islands, New Westminster,
North Vancouver, Saanich, Vancouver East, and Vancouver - Point Grey
Electoral Districts.
Alberni District
A 5-mile section of the Alberni-Tofino Road along Kennedy Lake was
reconstructed. Gravel renewal was carried out on a further 6-mile section of
the Alberni-Tofino Road. Burde Road was reconstructed and paved. An asphalt
recap was applied to River Road to complete repairs after being damaged by the
tidal wave. A truck lane was constructed and paved on the Alberni-Parksville
Highway leading out of Alberni.
Shoulder improvements were carried out on many of the roads in the Alberni
Valley. Snow and ice conditions were severe during the winter. However, all
roads were maintained in good condition without delays to traffic except for a
short closure of a few days on the Alberni-Tofino Highway due to snowslide
conditions.
Burnaby District
Roads
Maintenance.—Roads were maintained in good condition throughout the
district. Most of the areas around guard-rails and sign-posts were treated with soil
sterilant.
The new Trans-Canada Freeway was turned over to the district for maintenance
in May. Prior to this, district forces carried out considerable clean-up, etc., in
preparation for the opening.
Construction.—A median curb was installed on Lougheed Highway from
Willingdon to Gilmore Avenue.
On Grandview Highway at Douglas Hill, the third lane was extended from
Mayfield Street to Edmonds Street.
A salt-storage shed was built in the Burnaby maintenance yard.
Work continued on the access road to the new Simon Fraser University. The
right-of-way clearing was completed, and some grading undertaken and storm
sewers installed.
Curb, gutter, and storm sewer were installed on the north side of Hastings
Street from Springer to Holdom, and the first lift of pavement laid over one-half
of the designed width of the road.
Snow Removal.—A total of 73 inches of snowfall was recorded for the winter,
which is well above normal for this area. Frequency of snow-storms and freezing
conditions kept the maintenance crews working on a 24-hour basis for an extended
period, ploughing, sanding, and salting.
Roads were kept open at all times in generally good winter condition with a
minimum of traffic delays.
Considerable hired equipment was used to help combat the snow. A total of
1,573 tons of salt was used throughout the winter.
Bridges
Normal maintenance and repairs were carried out on all bridges in the district.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 75
Chilliwack District
Roads
Maintenance.—All roads were very well maintained. Trans-Canada Highway
No. 401 required extensive mowing. Brushing, removing stumps and dangerous
trees, and ditching were required on the section between Mount Lehman and
County Line Road. Each year more sterilant spraying is being carried out on
shoulders and median. Calcium chloride and salt were used as a dust-layer on
gravel roads.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Extensive patching was carried out on Abbotsford-
Mission Highway.
Hot-mix pavement was laid on 0.41 mile of frontage road south of Highway
No. 401, on 0.09 mile between Lickman and Yale Road, on the off-ramp from
Highway No. 401 to Highway No. 9, and on 0.10-mile cross-over at McDermott
Road and off-ramp from Highway No. 401.
Construction.—Construction was completed on 2.00 miles of the Chilliwack
Lake road, on 2.00 miles of Columbia Valley roads (Frost Creek section), on 0.41
mile of frontage road south of Highway No. 401, on 0.10 mile of service road
south of Sardis Interchange, and on 0.11 mile of service road south of Clearbrook
Interchange.
River-bank protection work was carried out on Chilliwack River.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was much heavier than normal, but all roads were
kept open and in good condition throughout the winter.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained in good condition. MacKay Bridge No. 1 was
reconstructed, and MacKay Bridge No. 2 was replaced by a culvert and fill.
Comox District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads. The
unusually severe winter conditions resulted in snow-removal expenditure being close
to four times the expenditure for a normal year.
New Construction.—On the Port McNeill-Beaver Cove Road, the remaining
2.80 miles of road at the Beaver Cove end were constructed and gravelled.
The remaining 70 per cent of the Port Alice-Rumble Beach Road, being 2.5
mile, was constructed and gravelled.
On Quadra Island, clearing was completed on Green Road, a distance of 1.4
miles.   Grading is 30 per cent complete.
At Quatsino a road was constructed to connect the Indian village with the
public road, a distance of 1.93 miles.
In the Courtenay area, the approach road to the new Oyster River Bridge
location, being a total of 1.16 miles, is 70 per cent complete. The access road to
the Comox ferry landing was constructed in preparation for paving. A total of

for ice control.
Cowichan-Newcastle District
Improvements were made to the Lake Cowichan Road by eliminating sharp
corners, improving sight distance, moving utility poles, and providing shouldering.
Asphalt levelling courses were applied to improve the riding surface.
A total of 6 miles of farm-to-market roads were paved with asphalt road mix.
Major widening was carried out at the junction of the Cowichan Bay Road with the
Trans-Canada Highway, and a left-turn lane provided at this point.
Shoulder-widening was carried out on the Trans-Canada Highway between
Ladysmith and Nanaimo.
Severe winter snow and ice conditions were encountered. Bare pavement was
maintained on the Trans-Canada Highway with the use of salt.
Delta District
Roads
Maintenance.—Roads were maintained in good condition throughout the district.
  C 78 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
Most guard-rails and sign-posts were treated with soil sterilant, as well as the
median shoulders on the full length of Deas Tunnel Throughway.
The new Trans-Canada Freeway was opened on June 12, 1964, and the district, at the same time, assumed responsibility for maintenance. District forces prior
to this undertook considerable clean-up work on the freeway to prepare for the
opening.

and installed a fill and services, as well as paving a parking area, for a patrol office
south of Port Mann Bridge.
A truck lane was constructed on Highway No. 10 between Johnston Road and
Goldstone Road.
Connecting with Beach Road on Deas Tunnel Throughway near the International Boundary, a frontage road was constructed to provide access to the Indian
reserve.
To relieve flooding condition on the west side of Deas Tunnel Throughway due
to under-capacity culvert on Buena Vista Creek, a relief ditch to handle peak flows
was constructed along the east side of the freeway from a point 1,000 feet north of
North Bluff Road south to Buena Vista Creek, a total distance of 0.65 mile.
A multi-plate arch culvert 160 feet long, 12 feet 4 inches by 7 feet 9 inches,
was installed across the Deas Tunnel Throughway at Freshwater Creek east of the
Great Northern Railway overpass.
Left-turn slots and signals were installed at the intersection of Highway No. 17
and Highway No. 10 at Ladner.
Resurfacing was carried out on the following roads: Glover Road, from B.C.
Hydro crossing to Fort Langley, 2.9 miles; 56th Street, from Highway No. 17 to
12th Avenue, 1.4 miles; Westminster Highway, from C.N.R. crossing east for 1.8
miles.
Snow Removal. — Above normal snowfall occurred, causing major snow-
removal problems. Frequency of snow-storms and cold temperatures kept crews
operating on a 24-hour basis, ploughing, sanding, and salting for an extended period.
Roads were kept open and in generally good winter condition with minimum traffic
interruption or delay.   Ninety-five inches of snow was recorded for the winter.
A total of 2,109 tons of salt was used to combat the ice and snow, and considerable hired equipment was used to assist our own equipment in ploughing and
salting.
Bridges and Ferry-landings
Considerable damage to the McMillan Island ferry-landing resulted from excessive scouring of the river bed beneath the landing during the freshet in June. A contract was let for complete replacement of three approach bays, counterweight towers,
guide pier, and slipway dolphins. Temporary ramps were installed immediately
after the damage occurred in order to maintain ferry service with a minimum of
interruption.
Widening on Serpentine River Bridge on the Fraser Highway near Fry's Corner
was completed.
Twigg Island Bridge was closed for one month and completely redecked with
2- by 6-inch lamination overlaid with 1-inch asphalt plank running-surface.
Replacement of one pier and redecking a portion of the east approach was
carried out on Canoe Pass Bridge.
An addition was built onto the paint-shop in Cloverdale maintenance yard.
Outside of the district, the bridge crew erected a 90-foot double-single Bailey
bridge at Swartz Bay.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 79
All other bridges and ferry installations in the area received normal maintenance.
Ferries
The Albion-Fort Langley Ferry was maintained on schedule throughout the
year, with the exception of some interruptions and delays during the period of high
water in June when the McMillan Island landing was damaged by scouring of the
river bed and when the repairs were made to the landing in the fall.
Barnston Island ferry service was maintained without interruption throughout
the year.
The ferry-landings had to be abandoned at the foot of Hjorth Road during high
water in June due to flooding of Hjorth Road. Temporary landings were installed
at the foot of Latimer Road, up-river on the mainland, and in the Indian reserve
on Barnston Island. These temporary landings remained in service for one month;
however, ferry service was maintained with few delays.
Dewdney (East) District
Roads
Maintenance.—All roads were well maintained. Extensive mowing was done,
and considerable sterilant and brush-kill spraying was carried out. Bunker B oil
and calcium chloride were used on gravel roads as a dust-layer. Due to the very
long period of higher than average run-off in June and July, a great deal of dyking
work was necessary. A considerable amount of shoulder gravel was laid on the
Lougheed Highway.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Extensive patching was done on the Lougheed Highway and the Harrison Hot Springs Highway.
New asphalt pavement was laid on 0.68 mile of Hyde Buker Road, on 0.85

Bridge and Patrol Superintendent
The year's work consisted of the usual general maintenance of the toll-free
bridge structures and interconnecting highways, and also of repairs and maintenance
for the British Columbia Ferry Authority.
Tolls were removed from the Oak Street Bridge and the Deas Tunnel on April
1, 1964, these being the last of the toll structures on the Lower Mainland.
General maintenance of the Pattullo Bridge and the Port Mann Bridge was
placed under the direction of the Bridge and Patrol Superintendent. Maintenance
of the Stanley Park Causeway also was placed under the same direction; it was previously the responsibility of the Vancouver Parks Board.
A further duty taken over was the patrolling of Trans-Canada Highway No.
401 from North Vancouver to the Agassiz Road junction near Rosedale.
Painting was carried out on two of the main structures—namely, First Narrows
Bridge and Pattullo Bridge.

minor delays were caused on the Port Mann Bridge and the Trans-Canada Highway
by motorists not being familiar with winter driving conditions.
 C 84 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
REGION No. 2
(J. W. Nelson, Regional Highway Engineer, Kamloops)
Cariboo (South), Kamloops, Lillooet (North), North Okanagan, Revelstoke,
Salmon Arm, Similkameen, South Okanagan, and Yale Electoral Districts
Cariboo (South) District
Roads
Maintenance.—A continuous patching programme was again carried out on
the Cariboo Highway. Weed-burning and general maintenance of the right-of-way
were to an improved standard.
General maintenance on some 1,500 miles of road was hindered by a wet
summer.
Maintenance of existing signs received much attention. Many new signs were
erected for subdivision and side roads.
Construction.—On the Cariboo Highway, widening was completed from Mile
97 to Mile 102.5 in preparation for repaving. This included construction of truck
lanes for the north and south approaches to 100 Mile House and on 83 Mile Hill.
Clearing for future widening was virtually completed from Mile 124 to Mile 142.
The Chilcotin Highway was reconstructed for 8 miles from the top of Sword
Creek Hill to Riske Creek. Five and one-half miles of the Canim Lake Road were
reconstructed, completing the section from Forest Grove to the Cariboo Highway.
Six and one-half miles of the Chimney Lake Road were reconstructed, as were also
12.2 miles of sundry roads. Major improvements were made on a further 68.7
miles of road.
Paving.—A paving school was held in the 100 Mile area. Road-mix pavement was laid on 3.8 miles of the Canim Lake Road and 0.2 mile of Eagle Creek
Road.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was unusually heavy throughout most of the district, with continuous freezing conditions during the entire winter period. The
Horsefly and Likely areas were particularly hard hit. Excessive depths of snow
made it difficult to maintain normal road widths.
Bridges
A new timber bridge, Tatla Lake Creek (No. 604), was constructed on the
Chilcotin Highway. Minor timber structures including Newton (No. 182), Sword
Creek No. 2 (No. 375), Siwash (No. 381), Red Creek (No. 418), Corkscrew
(No. 494), Clinchintampan (No. 499), and Lingfield (No. 500) were all renewed.
In addition, six bridges had major repairs. Minor maintenance and debris removal
were carried out on numerous sundry bridges.
Kamloops District
Roads
Trunk and Main Highways.—General maintenance was carried out on all
trunk and main highways. As in the last two years, it was found that traffic volumes
increased considerably on all of these highways, and our maintenance has consequently increased to keep pace. Patching, sign maintenance, shoulder restoration,
and weed control were again given top priority.
Maintenance costs were kept, as in the past three vears, on specified sections
of the Trans-Canada Highway for evaluation by the Design and Planning Engineer.
We had a fairly long and hard winter, with near-record snowfalls, which necessitated continuous ploughing, sanding, and chemical applications.    It was again
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 85
found that with the proper use of abrasives and a mixture of abrasives and chemicals
it was possible to bring about bare pavement in a relatively short time after a freeze
or snowfall. There were again no load restrictions on the Trans-Canada Highway;
however, overloads were rescinded for a short period of time.
Other Highways and Roads.—Routine maintenance was carried out on all
other roads. We continued our programme to place a coat of gravel on our busier
side roads and in particular where they pass by homes or ranches, to ease the dust
problem in the hot weather and muddy sections during rainy periods. Snowfalls
were near record; however, all school-bus routes were kept open.
Spring break-up was fairly severe. There was excellent co-operation from
the loggers in keeping road damage to a bare minimum.
Bridges
All bridges in the district were inspected by the Kamloops Resident Engineer,
Senior Engineering Aide, and Bridge Foreman to determine the next year's bridge
repair and replacement programme.
The following bridges were redecked, complete with cross-ties and stringers,
checked, and replaced as required: Snowball Creek (No. 193), Allen Creek (No.
223), Cayuse Creek (No. 44), Lemieux Creek No. 2 (No. 130), Tranquille No. 1
(No. 199), Fadeau Creek (No. 92), and Barriere South (No. 17).
Kamloops East Bridge (No. 121) and Clearwater River Bridge (No. 55)
were completely redecked, new cross-ties were placed, and sidewalks were added
for pedestrian safety. Clearwater Station Bridge (No. 56) was repaired extensively,
with 54 new piles driven to strengthen the piers. Vavenby Bridge (No. 204) also
had new piles driven for strengthening, and a sidewalk was added.
Barriere East Bridge (No. 15) was reconstructed in co-operation with the
Department of Lands, Forests, and Water Resources with an 80-foot glue-lam structure. Landscaping was continued and repaired on Overlander Bridge (No. 208).
Four bridges were eliminated by reconstruction of the North Thompson Highway.
Lemieux Creek Bridge No. 1 (No. 129) was replaced by a concrete and steel
structure. Blackwater River Bridge (No. 24), Peterson Creek Bridge (No. 163),
and Jones Creek Bridge (No. 120) were replaced by multi-plate culverts.
Ferries
All ferries were checked, painted, and repaired as required. All lines and
sheaves were lubricated and repaired. There were short interruptions during high
water and icing conditions.
Day-labour Construction
North Thompson Highway.—A total of 3.3 miles was reconstructed to standard. This work completed our day-labour programme to Vavenby. This section
was gravelled and pulvimixed as well.
Five miles were improved from Avola to Blue River, to provide four turnouts because of heavier traffic volumes.
Other Day-labour Projects.—Two and one-half miles were reconstructed on
the Heffley-Louis Creek Road or access to Mount Tod ski-ing area; 6.11 miles
were reconstructed to provide access for major logging operations on Barriere
North Road (No. Ill); and 2.1 miles were reconstructed on the Clearwater Valley
Road. Approximately another 25 miles were improved and reconstructed on a
number of other busy roads.
Sundry Roads.—Slashing, widening, ditching, and spot gravelling were carried
out on approximately 5 miles of road.
 C 86
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
Bunker B oil was supplied to all gravel roads in Valleyview, Dallas, Brockle-
hurst, Westsyde, Powers Addition, Little Fort, and Clearwater. Road mixing was
completed on 5 miles of other subdivision roads.
Lillooet (North) District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads in the district. Extra work resulted from damage caused by a 24-hour rainfall in June, which
temporarily closed six of the main district roads. This storm created a large slide
covering Highway No. 40 just below Mission Dam and washed out the Churn Creek
Bridge in the Gang Ranch country and the Gibbs Creek Underpass on Highway No.
12b, the latter high water also taking out some 500 feet of P.G.E. Railway track.
Weed-burning along the Trans-Canada Highway right-of-way was carried out
by a specially equipped truck. Large amounts of slide rock were removed from
Highways Nos. 40, 12b, and 12a.
Alexandra North Arch, Trans-Canada Highway, 1 mile north of Alexandra Lodge.
140-foot reinforced concrete barrel arch, 44-foot roadway.
Construction and Surfacing.—Nineteen miles of new roads were constructed,
12 miles of these being in conjunction with the Department of Lands, Forests, and
Water Resources. Six miles of new road in the Upper Hat Creek area were built to
eliminate six small bridges.
Reconstruction.—Four miles of road were reconstructed on Highway No. 12b,
1,500 feet of one-way road along Pavilion Lake being widened, this entailing considerable rock work.
Seven and one-half miles of the Cariboo Highway, from Cache Creek north,
were widened to 50 feet.   Widening was also done on both approaches to Ashcroft.
Elsewhere some 25 miles were realigned and regravelled.
 m
REGIONAL REPORTS C 87
Snow Removal.—Lillooet again had higher than average snow conditions, with
the bulk of the snowfall occurring at lower levels.
Bridges
The Churn Creek Bridge had to be replaced due to the heavy June rain, as well
as one in the Upper Hat Creek area, with other bridges needing reinforcing.
The Red Bridge at Pemberton was redecked, this bridge being some 385 feet
in length.
The P.G.E. Railway underpass at Gibbs Creek on Highway No. 12b, being
washed out, had a new design advanced for it.
Elsewhere two old structures were dismantled, having being replaced by new
bridges the year before.
Ferries
The Big Bar reaction ferry continued in operation, its main cargo being some
9,000 head of sheep, with the occasional hunter and local ranchers using it.
North Okanagan District
Roads
Maintenance.—We have continued with our efforts to maintain a high standard
of maintenance, and the results are beginning to be quite evident. The brushing
and clearing programme is being maintained. A hazardous condition existed at
Weir's Bluff on Highway No. 97a 6 miles north of Enderby, and this was eliminated
with the removal of approximately 6,000 yards of rock. On four major railway
crossings the timber planking was replaced by steel flange grooves and asphalt-
concrete pavement.
Construction and Surfacing.—A contract was awarded for strengthening and
recapping of the Vernon-Lumby section of Highway No. 6. Reshouldering and
ditching of the section was done by district forces. We improved 25.30 miles of
road, and of this total 15.85 miles were paved with pulvimix and 2.10 miles with
road mix by district forces.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was slightly higher than the 10-year average. We
were able to maintain a good standard of maintenance and service. The Monashee
Pass section of Highway No. 6 was handled much easier with truck ploughs equipped
with one-way ploughs, and no bulldozers were required.
Bridges
Two old bridges on Whiteman Creek were replaced by one new stringer span
40 feet in length, with concrete piers, laminated deck, and asphalt surface.    New
deck systems and surfaces were installed on four major bridges.   Minor repairs were
made to decks and railings on six bridges.
Revelstoke District
Roads
Maintenance. — Maintenance crews concentrated on ditching and gravelling
various side roads and frontage roads. Portions of the Big Bend Highway required
major gravelling. The Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road was washed out by a flash
flood at McKay Creek.
Calcium chloride was used on the Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road, Big Eddy
suburbs, and various side roads for dust control.
Trans-Canada Highway.—All snow-removal maintenance was worked out in
a three 8-hour shift system, with minor closures resulting from slope slides and snow-
slides, except for minor slides at Summit Lake, Three Valley, and Silver Creek. No
exceptional maintenance was required.   The Highways Department maintained all
 C 88 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
snow removal through Revelstoke National Park, and the Parks maintained from
Albert Canyon east.
Construction. — Work was continued on the reconstruction of the Solsqua-
Sicamous Road. Relocation was completed on a portion of the Nichol Road, and
construction started in late fall.
Communications
A new type of antenna was installed on the repeater at Sproat Mountain to
solve the icing problem. The communication with the Galena Pass area is good,
but there is some interference from the New Denver area.
Bridges
Due to flash floods in July, 1964, Silvertip, Downie Creek, and Greeley Creek
Bridges were washed out and destroyed.   These were replaced by new structures
of various types. _
' Femes
On the opening of the road from Galena Bay to Nakusp, the ferry service from
Arrowhead to Nakusp was discontinued. The M.V. " Lardeau," which was on this
service, now operates between Arrowhead and Galena Bay.
No major trouble was experienced from ice conditions at either 12 Mile or
24 Mile ferries.
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance.—A general maintenance programme was carried out on all
highways and side roads within the district. Weed control was continued along
the Trans-Canada Highway with the use of chemicals. A small amount of calcium-
chloride was used as a dust preventative in isolated areas, and more oil was used
than in previous years to control dust on heavily travelled side roads.
Reconstruction.—Shuswap-Chase Creek Road (No. 202), Mile 0.0 to Mile
1.4, was reconstructed to a 33-foot subgrade, and 6 inches of pit-run gravel were
applied.
Holding Road (No. 451), Mile 5.0 to Mile 7.0 was reconstructed to a 33-
foot subgrade, and 6 inches of pit-run gravel were applied.
Balmoral Road (No. 66), Mile 0.0 to Mile 1.9, was reconstructed to a 33-foot
subgrade, and 6 inches of pit-run and 6 inches of crushed gravel were applied.
V.L.A. Road (No. 204), Mile 0.4 to Mile 1.4, was reconstructed to a 33-foot
subgrade, and 6 inches of pit-run gravel were applied.
Major improvements were carried out on Chase streets, Squilax—Turtle Valley
Road, Douglas Lake Road, Sorrento-Eagle Bay Road, and Kamloops-Vernon
Highway. The above totalled 5.5 miles and included rock work, widening, ditching, shouldering, and general improvements.
Snow Removal.—The snowfall was greater than had been experienced for
several winters.   All trunk and side roads were kept open.   Again crews were used
on shift work, and with the use of chemicals our trunk roads were kept in very good
condition. D .,,
Bridges
Frost Bridge and Ross Creek Bridge were completely renewed. Pritchard
Bridge was kept in usable condition by means of a Bailey Bridge span. Whitaker
Bridge was replaced by culvert and fill. Squilax Bridge was redecked, and sundry
repair work was carried out on 37 other bridges.

  C 90 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1964/65
Similkameen District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance throughout the district emphasized improving the appearance of road rights-of-way by shouldering and weed and brush
spraying. The programme of placing curve delineators was continued. A total
of 32.5 miles of orchard roads was oil-sprayed for dust control.
Paving.—There were 7.8 miles of road paved and 2.9 miles recapped by road
mixing.   Eight miles of old pavement were rehabilitated by sand-sealing.
Construction and Reconstruction.—The westerly 24.1-mile section of the
Richter Pass Highway was widened and prepared for paving by district forces.
Two truck escape routes and a 1.2-mile truck lane were constructed on the
Hope-Princeton Highway.
Work was continued in widening and improving the access road to the Apex
Ski Hill.
Snow Removal.—Although snowfall was normal in the Allison Pass area,
heavier than normal snowfalls occurred in the eastern portion of the district. Above
average tonnages of salt and sand were necessary to combat icy roads.
Bridges
Four bridges were completely reconstructed. Maintenance of other bridges
in the district called for redecking where necessary and foundation repairs.
South Okanagan District
Roads
Maintenance.—The increase of tourist traffic as well as the rapid growth of
the unorganized areas is requiring increased maintenance to minor roads. This
maintenance entails ditching, culverts, brushing, and gravelling.
General maintenance is being increased each year, with emphasis on grading,
ditching, brushing, signing, and dust control.
Maintenance on Highway No. 97 included widening of the shoulders and view
points and general improvement of the aesthetic features for tourist enjoyment.
The late run-off, coupled with heavy rains in late May, resulted in above
average flood conditions commencing June 7th. No flood damage resulted as it
was possible to contain the waters by the construction of rock dykes.
Reconstruction.—Improvements were carried out on 2 miles of the Westside
Road from the old ferry-landing north, preparatory to paving.
Improvements to grade and alignment were carried out on several roads, the
total length of which amounted to 4.5 miles.
Gravelling was done on 12.68 miles of district roads.
Construction was 90 per cent completed on a five-lane system, Kelowna east
for 3 miles on Highway No. 97.
Reconstruction was carried out on 10.98 miles of side roads.
Paving.—A total of 2.8 miles of road-mix pavement was laid by district forces.
Snow Removal.—An above average snowfall was recorded, requiring a 24-
hour coverage by the snow-removal equipment. No inconvenience was experienced by the travelling public. Increased use was made of salt, which proved very
satisfactory.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 91
Bridges
Sawmill Creek Bridge was replaced by a steel-stringer span and concrete abutments.
Normal maintenance and repairs were carried out on all bridges.
Yale District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads in the district.   Weed and brush killers were applied on the Trans-Canada Highway.
On January 1, 1965, a wet 36-inch snowfall caused numerous major snowslides
between Yale and Boston Bar, closing the Fraser Canyon section of the Trans-
Canada Highway from 4 p.m. on January 1st until 9 a.m. on January 3rd. On January 9th at approximately 6 a.m. a massive rock, dirt, and snow slide, approximately
1.5 miles in width at its base, occurred at Mile 14 on the Southern Trans-Canada
Highway. This completely blocked the road and valley. Department forces and
some 50 pieces of various types of hired equipment, working two 12-hour shifts,
completed a detour road through the slide and reopened the road to traffic at 7 a.m.
on January 22, 1965. Unfortunately four persons were caught in the slide and lost
their lives.
Permanent lighting was installed in the Yale, Alexandra, and Ferrabee Tunnels
on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Major Construction and Reconstruction. — A 0.25-mile rock section of the
Othello Road, near Hope, was drilled and blasted to eliminate a narrow section.
On the Merritt-Spences Bridge Highway, rock corners were improved between Mile
12.15 and Mile 13.0. Rock from these excavations was used for riprap at various
sections from Mile 5 to Mile 16. In addition, a dangerous gravel corner at Mile
14.5 was widened and improved.
Side roads in the Merritt area were improved as follows: Mamit Lake—new
grade and alignment and gravelling between Mile 5.40 and Mile 6.85; Coldwater—
3 miles of brushing, gravelling, and additional culvert installation carried out; Loon
Lake—several rock corners drilled and blasted and gravelling completed over a
2-mile section; Penask Lake—gravelling and culvert installation, Mile 22.5 to
Mile 28.5.
A total of 2 miles of gravelling was done on the Douglas Lake and Mathew
Roads.
On the Coalmont road, a rock corner was eliminated at Mile 31.6 and 15 miles
of gravelling carried out on various dirt sections.
At Silver Creek, the Silver Hope Access Road, 0.18 mile in length, was constructed and gravelled.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The Merritt-Kamloops Arterial in the Village of Merritt between Mile 0.0 and Mile 1.4 was strengthened with 6-inch gravel lift and
repaved.
Hot-mix asphalt pavement was laid on 0.10 mile of the Silver Hope Access
Road.
Bridges
All district bridges were maintained, and extensive repairs were effected to 10
bridges. Fuick Bridge No. 141 was eliminated by installation of a 72-inch diameter
culvert and fill.
 C 92 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
Ferries
During a period of high water on the morning of August 4th, the overhead
cable of the Lytton Ferry failed, and this reaction ferry went aground approximately
1,000 feet downstream. District forces installed a new main cable and restored the
ferry to service at 5 p.m. on August 14th. Emergency service was maintained during this period by means of a rented power-boat.
A new haul-back cable was installed and certain modifications were carried out
to the ferry cage of the North Bend Aerial Ferry.
REGION No. 3
(D. F. Martin, Regional Highway Engineer, Nelson)
Columbia, Cranbrook, Fernie, Grand Forks-Greenwood, Kaslo-Slocan,
Nelson-Creston, and Rossland-Trail Electoral Districts
Columbia District
Roads
Maintenance.—Maintenance on the Trans-Canada Highway and on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway consisted of patching, ditching, cleaning culverts, grading
shoulders, weed control, renovating signs, clearing rock, and picking up garbage.
The weed-control programme consisted of the application of chemicals in the
fall.   This was 75 per cent effective.
Fall and spring bring problems of rockslides, especially in the Golden area.
Litter is deposited along our highways, which entails considerable clean-up.
More garbage barrels will be put out during the 1965/66 season to try to remedy
this situation.
Construction. — Day-labour construction was done on the Westside, Toby,
Campbell, Golden-Donald, Madsen, and J-2 Ranch Roads, and streets in Canal
Flats, Windermere, Radium, and Edgewater. On the roads, work constituted slashing, widening, gravelling, and placing culverts. The street programme consisted of
gravelling, road mixing, and oiling.
On the Big Bend Highway, work was done in conjunction with the logging
companies.   This consisted of a certain amount of grading and culvert installation.
Snow removal was on a 24-hour basis. Snowslides in the Kicking Horse Canyon and Toby Creek area constituted the usual problems.
Sodium chloride and calcium chloride were used to advantage under favourable temperature conditions.
Bridges
Bridge work involved the reconstruction of Brisco Bridge and Jumbo Bridge.
Major construction of Sullivan Bridge was completed. Copper Creek Bridge was
replaced by culverts and fill.   Repairs on other bridges were carried out as required.
Buildings
Normal maintenance took place on Department of Highways buildings as required.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads.
Pavement-patching was above normal on older surfaces.   Soil sterilant was applied
to shoulders where new construction or shouldering took place.   Weed-spraying
and brush-cutting was carried out on all main highways. Calcium chloride was used
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 93
on gravel roads where population is sufficient to warrant same as a dust-layer.
Frost heaving on roads was more than usual.
Construction.—Highway No. 93 from Eager Hill to Fort Steele was completed
to subgrade. Pit-run gravel was placed on 4 miles, and 1 Va -inch gravel was placed
on 1 mile.    Concrete guard-rail was manufactured for this road.
Gravelling, road-mix paving, and the manufacture of concrete guard-rail was
completed on the Wycliffe Bridge approach, Kootenay-Columbia Highway No. 95.
After widening and gravelling, road-mix pavement was laid on 2 miles of
Mission Road and 1.0 mile of Black Bear Road. A total of 0.75 mile of Kimberley
East subdivision roads and 1.20 miles of Monroe Lake Road were widened,
gravelled, and double flush-coated.
The C.P.R. Hill section of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway was widened
where truck lanes are located; also shoulders were widened on adjacent sections
to C.P.R. Hill for total of 5.2 miles.
Snow Removal.—Above average snowfall was encountered this past winter,
but roads were maintained and open with very little delay. The use of chemicals
at the right time and extreme cold weather after a storm enabled crews to keep most
sections of main highways to bare pavement, which made travel easier. Costs were
considerably above normal years.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained as required. Nigger Creek Bridge, a new structure, 40 feet long, was built to replace culverts put in due to road washing out each
year since original bridge was removed.
Buildings
Work in the Cranbrook yard consisted principally of erection of metal building
additions, repairs and some painting to a storage shed, painting the balance of
the interior of the shop with fire-retarding paint.
A building was moved from Wardner to Abbey gravel pit for storage of loader
and chemicals during winter.
Fernie District
Roads
Maintenance.—Pavement, shoulder, and gravel maintenance was carried out
on all district roads throughout the year. Some sections of the main highway were
treated with weed and brush killer to aid in improving sight distance and in highway
aesthetics. A portion of the Southern Trans-Canada and most of the Elko-Roos-
ville sections were shoulder-treated with soil sterilant to reduce weed and grass
growth on the shoulders. An extensive programme of clearing and gravelling side
roads was undertaken, and considerable improvement has been noticed this year.
A particularly hazardous section of the Southern Trans-Canada in the winter months
was improved by brushing the tree line well back of the road section. Some earthwork was done on various side roads to improve alignment and grade. Particular
attention was given to side roads leading to two summer-resort areas, Rosen and
Tie Lake.
Dust inhibition near dwellings was accomplished with the use of liquid asphalt.
River-bank protection work on various sections of the main highway was
necessary to combat high water and bank erosion.
Snow Removal.—An abnormally high December snowfall resulted in an above
normal total for the year. A lack of rain throughout the winter produced an extensive amount of snow in the mountains; however, only one major slide occurred,
<-
 C 94
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
at Morrissey.    A shift system was incorporated to enable our crews to provide
around-the-clock service when necessary.
Construction.—On the Southern Trans-Canada Highway near Hosmer, 3.7
miles was raised with pit-run gravel, finished with crushed gravel, and pulvimixed.
Bridges
Bull River Wagon Bridge was reinforced and redecked.
Sand Creek Bridge was completely rebuilt, using creosoted piling and fir
stringers.
Buildings
A new concrete floor was poured in the Fernie garage, and an assembly-room
for the Fernie crew was completed.
Grand Forks-Greenwood District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads.
Slope seeding was carried out on the Christina-Kinnaird section of the Southern
Trans-Canada Highway. The shoulder-widening programme was continued on
the Anarchist Mountain section of the same highway.
Major improvements in grade, alignment, and width were carried out on the
Rock Creek-Kelowna road, between Rock Creek and Westbridge. Soil sterilant
was applied to all guard-rail sections on the Southern Trans-Canada Highway and
on the shoulders between Grand Forks and Christina Lake.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the final 1.76 miles of the Grand Forks-
Greenwood section of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway was completed to tie
in to the new Greenwood Underpass section.
Reconstruction of two sections totalling 7.03 miles of the Rock Creek-
Kelowna road was started late in the fall. By the end of the year some 3.01 miles
of subgrade were completed, with 1.52 miles 60 to 80 per cent completed and an
additional 2.5 miles cleared.
Widening was started on the Alpine Inn-Texas Point road, but was halted by
heavy snowfall.
The Kettle Valley South road was widened, ditched, and gravelled for 3.12
miles.
The Kettle Valley East road was widened, gravelled, and paved with penetration seal pavement for 1.63 miles. A total of 4.98 miles of new penetration seal-
paving and 8.63 miles of bituminous seal-coating was carried out on local roads
in the Grand Forks, Christina Lake, Greenwood, Midway, and Rock Creek areas.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall throughout the district, particularly at the lower
levels, was considerably heavier than the average over the past 10 years. All roads
were kent open and well sanded. Use of chemicals was increased, with good results. Heavier snowfall resulted in an increase in the number of slides on the
Christina-Kinnaird section of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway causing some
minor traffic delays. Winter maintenance was discontinued on part of the old
Cascade Highway between Christina Lake and Rossland, and the road was closed
for the winter between Mile 7 on the Christina Lake end to Sheep Creek on the
Rossland end.
Bridges
Kallis Creek Bridges Nos. 1 and 2 were widened and raised to prevent flooding at high water.
  C 96 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1964/65
Major repairs were carried out on Schulli, Cascade Upper, Beaverdell, and
Cooper Bridges. Less extensive repairs, including washing and painting, were
carried out on some 30 other bridges. Greenwood and C.P.R. Depot Bridges were
given major repairs prior to turning them over to the City of Greenwood.
Buildings
A new two-bay equipment shed with attached assembly-room and storeroom
was constructed at Beaverdell. A well and pumping system was installed at Rock
Creek to provide water for washroom facilities and fire protection at the Rock
Creek equipment shed.
Kaslo-Slocan District
Roads
The Columbia River development increased the activity in this district, and road
construction by day labour was accordingly accelerated. With funds from British
Columbia Hydro and Power Authority, the 8.4 miles from Lardeau to Marblehead
was rebuilt to a 30-foot top with a heavy lift of gravel for extraordinary traffic conditions.
Work was pressed on the widening of Coffee Creek bluffs, and at the year-end
was 85 per cent complete. A diversion around the bottleneck at Western Mines
mill-site was 75 per cent completed.
Widening on Silverton Hill, Highway No. 6, was completed, and the surface
was road-mixed under bad weather conditions. The rainy summer made all road
mixing difficult, but 2Vi miles between Arrow Park and Nakusp and 4 miles along
Summit Lake were fairly successfully surfaced after widening was complete.
A sand seal from Slocan to Nakusp on all existing road-mix pavement was done
by the Paving Branch and district forces.
In December, 25 miles of a private logging-road were gazetted as a public road,
and this was an added snow-service problem.
Maintenance of all roads was improved, and a mowing and brush-control spray
programme continued.
Bridges
Howser Bridge, on the Lardeau-Gerrard Road, collapsed under a logging-truck
and caused a major disturbance in the traffic pattern in the area. The only available
detour suffered from high water flooding. The new 180-foot structure, a two-span
glulam on creosoted piling, was completed in early December.
Poplar Bridge in the same area was rebuilt with sirnilar materials by late March,
and extensive repairs made to Gold Hill Bridge.
Falsework for a new bridge to cut off 9 miles of the Nakusp-Galena Bay route
was constructed.
The bridge crew had an extremely busy year and were supplemented at times
by the Golden District crew and vehicles and assisted by the Nelson District crew.
Buildings
The oil sheds at Winlaw, Kaslo, Edgewood, and New Denver were completed,
and an addition to the New Denver garage to house a new stockroom, tire-repair
room, washroom, and furnace-room was put into use.
Ferries
Ferries were maintained in service with few major breakdowns. A tug, which
we had hoped would help replace these barges for complete hull painting, was required on Kootenay Lake to facilitate construction at Lardeau.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 97
New gravel approaches were built at Needles West and Arrow Park West, and
the cable anchors renewed.
Safety
The district crews tried hard to improve their safety record, and did succeed
in keeping vehicle accidents to a minimum. Unfortunately the heavy slashing programme on construction involved a large turnover of untrained personnel, and we
had several minor accidents. The record is still bad, but the crews are becoming
more safety-conscious.
Nelson-Creston District
Roads
Maintenance.—Improvements were carried out to numerous roads, including
Pass Creek, Lower Six Mile, Tooze, Walker's Landing, and Silver King Roads.
Shouldering work was carried out on the Nelson-Castlegar and Nelson-Balfour sections of Highway No. 3A and on Highway No. 21 between Creston and Porthill.
Increased use was made of soil sterilants on highway shoulders, with good results.
Minor flooding occurred on the Rilkoff Road and Slocan Valley West Road during
the spring run-off. Extensive bank slips had to be removed from the Salmo-Creston
Highway for 12 miles east of the summit.
Construction.—Work was carried out on the Cora Linn-Bonnington section of
Highway No. 3a. A further 2 miles of Highway No. 3 between Hazel Creek and
Kidd Creek were reconstructed. Additional reconstruction work was carried out on
the Creston-Summit Creek Road. Roads were constructed in the Land Settlement
Board subdivisions at Ootischenia, Shoreacres, Brilliant, and Raspberry.
Snow Removal.—Very heavy snowfall occurred throughout the district. This
resulted in sharply increased snowploughing activity, but some reduction in the
amount of sanding. The temporary winter maintenance camp on the Salmo-Creston
Highway was moved to Kootenay Pass. This proved to be a more satisfactory base
for the winter maintenance operation. It was necessary on several occasions to provide shelter for members of the public who were unable to travel because of snow-
slides on both sides of the summit. Snowslide activity was extreme during the first
half of the winter. Road closures were numerous, the longest being for a two-day
period in December.
Bridges
The Salmo River Bridge north of Ymir on Highway No. 6 was reconstructed.
The Laird Creek Bridge was replaced by a culvert and fill. Major repairs were
carried out to the Slocan River Bridge at Crescent Valley. General maintenance
and inspection were carried out on all bridges in the district.
Ferries
Traffic volume on the Kootenay Lake ferries was reduced during the first half
of the year, but increased during the second half. Two ferries operated on an hourly
schedule during the summer months. The Kootenay Bay ferry-landing was reconstructed. Extensive repairs were carried out to the Balfour landing. The Glade
ferry was shut down during the high water.
Rossland-Trail District
Roads
Maintenance. — Easy spring run-off reduced usual spring washout repairs.
Summer maintenance included preparation of new construction slopes for hydro-
seeder programme.   Shoulder-widening and roadside improvements were increased
 C 98 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
over other yearly programmes. Pavement-patching and sign renewal were about
normal.
Paving.—Three miles of Rossland-Sheep Lake No. 3b were pulvimixed by
Department forces.
Construction and Reconstruction.—Relocation of the Trail-Castlegar Highway
with a bridge elimination at Murphy Creek, requiring a fill and multi-plate culvert,
was 90 per cent completed during the fiscal year.
Snow Removal.—A higher than usual snowfall was experienced. District crews
were expanded to keep a 24-hour service on all route highways.
Bridges
Usual annual repairs were needed on all structures. Soundings were carried out
at the new Trail Bridge, as required annually. Soundings at the Columbia crossing
at Kinnaird disclosed river-bed erosion downstream between No. 2 and No. 3 piers.
A footwalk attached to the C.P.R. bridge at Castlegar was completed and in use
early in April, 1964.
Ferries
Usual cable repairs were required on Renata and Castlegar ferries, with minor
delays only in the schedules resulting.   Low water at Castlegar ferry caused a few
days' interruption of service for tractor-trailer combinations.   These were rerouted
via Trail and Nelson.
REGION No. 4
(R. G. Harvey, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George)
Atlin, Cariboo (North), Fort George, North Peace River, Omineca, Prince Rupert,
Skeena, and South Peace River Electoral Districts
Atlin (North) District
Atlin (North) District has three maintenance establishments, these being at
Atlin, Telegraph Creek, and Good Hope Lake.
At Atlin the winter was not too severe, and little damage was sustained due
to the spring break-up. During the year, spot gravelling and bridge repairs kept
the crew busy.
At Telegraph Creek, repairs were made to the village sidewalks, and some
reconstruction was done to the Telegraph Creek-Dease Lake Road across the lava
beds, where the roadway was crumbling badly.
Good Hope Lake camp, the largest, which maintains the road from the Cassiar
mine, removed a rock point and raised some low grade toward the mine, and also
made an extensive revision to a bad stretch of road between Watson Lake and
the camp, known as Mud Hill, where two through cuts and a new creek crossing
will eliminate some steep grade and poor alignment. Several miles of regravelling
were done to the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway. Plans were made to create a
new camp at the south end of Dease Lake at Mile 160. This will assist with the
maintenance of the new sections of the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway, as they
are taken over when the projects are completed. At present 254 miles of highway
are being maintained by Good Hope Lake, situated at Mile 64.
Atlin (South) District
Roads
Maintenance.—In the main, no difficulty was experienced with ordinary maintenance, but storm damage in the late fall in the vicinity of Alice Arm caused considerable trouble.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 99
Construction.—On the Stewart-Hyder Road, 1.60 miles in rock were widened
to a 30-foot subgrade.   Several dry masonry retaining-walls were eliminated.
A course of % -inch screened gravel was laid on the Stewart Arterial Highway.
Snow Removal.—Snow-removal operations in the district were normal. The
total snowfall at Stewart was 265 inches, and at Alice Arm was 146 inches.
Cariboo (North) District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads.
The Kersley section of the Cariboo Highway required extensive repair to pavement
breaks caused by frost heaves.
The Barkerville Road was treated for dust control with four carloads of calcium
chloride over 35 miles.
Guard-rail on the Cariboo Highway was cleaned, and the shoulders at guardrail sprayed with chemicals for weed control.
Two major landslides were stabilized—namely, the Hixon South Slide and the
Dragon Creek fill failure.
An appreciable amount of gravelling was carried out in the Nazko Valley and
the Punchaw area.
Construction.—Reconstruction was carried out on 3.6 miles of the Barkerville
Road, and 5.3 miles were pulverized. Pulvimix was laid on 2.1 miles of the
Quesnel-Hydraulic Road, and 1.1 miles from the previous year were remixed.
Sundry gravelling was carried out on the Nazko, Quesnel-Hydraulic, Fraser, and
Blackwater Roads. Twenty thousand tons of crushed gravel was stockpiled on the
Blackwater Road for pulvimix next year.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was heavier in all areas, falling quite frequently
rather than in heavy falls. This required continuous ploughing. The use of chemicals was not as successful as previous years due to prolonged sub-zero temperatures.
Bridges
A new 184-foot bridge was completed over the Blackwater River in the Nazko
Valley. The Erickson, Nataniko, Bastin, and Williams Creek Bridges were rebuilt.
Extensive repairs were carried out on the Cinema, Fraser, Nazko, and Quesnel
Bridges. Four mining-bridges on the Cariboo Hudson Road were replaced with
box culverts.
Ferries
Approach ramps on the Gravelle and Marguerite ferries were repaired after
high water. Full plumbing was installed in the Soda Creek and Marguerite Ferrymen's houses.
Fort George District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all district roads and
included additional gravelling on many. A very wet season retarded improvements
to some roads, and the rapidly increasing demands for improvements and services
near Prince George seem hardly to have been met.
Day-labour work east of McBride completed the upgrading of Highway No. 16
to Tete Jaune Cache, and a reasonable gravel road now exists which should serve
the area until new construction is completed.
  REGIONAL REPORTS
C 101
Snow Removal.—Heavy and frequent snowfalls kept operations busy, with
particularly heavy demands for service. Pavements were kept mostly bare by frequent ploughing and use of salt.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on bridges. Two bridges on the John
Hart-Peace River Highway were replaced with precast concrete-stringer type
structures.
Ferries
The Isle Pierre ferry operated all year with a light volume of traffic.
The Hansard ferry operated during the summer season on a 24-hour basis and
carried very heavy volumes of traffic.
North Peace River District
This was a busy year for North Peace River District, owing partly to considerable expansion in the outlying farming areas and also due to a new school policy
which grouped the rural one-room schools to three or four main centres. This
grouping meant that many miles of poor-standard dirt roads had to be immediately
brought up to an all-weather standard. Sixty miles in all were gravelled in all directions around Fort St. John, and a large proportion of this mileage had to be ditched,
brushed back, and have culverts installed. One of the biggest problems was the
shortage of gravel, hauls of 30 miles being not uncommon.
A major revision on the Fort St. John-Alberta Highway at the south side approach to the Beatton River was constructed, thus eliminating a series of bad slides.
On the Alaska Highway at Mile 41, part of a 10-foot-diameter multi-plate culvert through a 40-foot fill collapsed, and a new 48-foot section was installed.
Burning of the clearing debris on the Hudson Hope Road from Lynx Creek to
the dam-site was commenced.
A 4-mile revision to the Hudson Hope Road was commenced from Lynx Creek
to Hudson Hope, with a large cut through coarse gravel at one end and a much
improved grade at the other; this work will be completed in time for 1965 paving.
A pre-cut house was assembled for the foreman at Hudson Hope, and a concrete-block oil shed was built for the yard at Fort St. John.
A rush repair job was done during the spring break-up to the 4-mile access
road to the new Peace River Bridge at Hudson Hope. The 4 miles were heavily
gravelled with pit-run, and several culverts were installed.
Two miles north of Fort St. John, the large fill over Fish Creek slid out, due
to unstable fill material and increased water volume from faster run-off. A 192-foot
trestle bridge with a 50-foot steel I-beam centre span was installed to replace the
inadequate 6-foot culvert. A new channel was cut to keep the creek away from the
embankment. Perforated pipe for the side slopes and channel protection are
planned.
For the British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority, the district extended
the Hudson Hope airstrip a further 800 feet and constructed a parking area for the
aeroplanes. The strip was then treated with Bunker C oil. Some road work and
car-parking facilities were provided at the B.C. Hydro offices at the dam-site, and
an estimate and design were prepared for the complete reconstruction of the Lookout Road in readiness for paving.
A bridge crossing of the Blueberry River was located, and clearing of the right-
of-way is partly finished.
A 0.6-mile revision was made to the road down to the Clayhurst ferry because
of bad slides, and better grade and alignment were achieved.
 C 102 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
A mishap occurred at the Halfway River Bridge on the Hudson Hope Road
when a truck hit one of the main members of the Howe truss, causing the whole
180-foot structure to collapse. The river was frozen at the time, and no serious
injuries were sustained. The district drove a centre pile pier and placed a temporary
Bailey Bridge span to restore the bridge to normal traffic.
All in all, the winter was not too severe, snow was not too heavy, although the
temperatures were lower than normal. Snow-ploughing, crack-filling, and general
maintenance were completed satisfactorily.
Omineca (East) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on district roads, but work
was hampered by wet weather. Reditching and gravelling of several miles of the
Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake and other side roads was undertaken.
Construction.—Included in the construction programme was the reconstruction,
widening, and grade-strengthening of 19 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway, as well as smaller jobs on district secondary roads. Twelve miles of a
joint project to supply access to Indian villages north of Fort St. James was started.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was heavy and weather generally cold. Demands
for snow-clearing were much heavier than in previous years. Generally, less ice
than usual was experienced on district roads.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on all district bridges. Floods caused
damage to several bridges in the Germansen Landing area, with one bridge being
washed out.   Repairs and replacements were effected after high water.
Omineca (West) District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance throughout the district was hampered by
an extremely wet summer and fall. Ditching became impossible, and improvements
to side roads were curtailed by the wet soil conditions. Chemical brush control had
to be cancelled.
Construction. — Ditching, shoulder-widening, and minor improvements were
conducted by Department forces along two sections of the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway—Telkwa to Hungry Hill, 14 miles, and Burns Lake to Tintagel, 7 miles—
in conjunction with paving projects; 2.1 miles of the Colleymount Road along Francois Lake were reconstructed; 11.7 miles of the Topley Landing Road were ditched
and gravelled; and 6.5 miles of the Babine Road were also ditched and gravelled.
Subdivision roads in the Burns Lake area were regravelled and improved. Five and
one-half miles of the Granisle Copper Access Road along Babine Lake northwest of
Topley Landing were successfully cleared and stripped during the winter months in
a joint effort with a mining company, the Department of Mines and Petroleum Resources, and the Department of Highways.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was much above normal until early February and
light thereafter. However, with thawing and a late cold spell in March, frozen culvert problems were the worst ever experienced. Sanding and chemical requirements
were about average.
  C 104 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
Bridges
A combination of late secondary run-off and a warm front accompanied by
heavy thunder-storms triggered extensive flooding comparable to that of 1948 in the
Topley-Houston section of the Upper Buckley River valley on May 29th, 30th, and
31st. Two bridges were washed out and several damaged. Four large culverts were
also washed out and many badly scoured. An extensive rebuilding programme was
undertaken by district forces, and all repairs were completed by spring.
The Carroll Bridge (No. 19) was constructed for farm access purposes.
Dominic (No. 1), Graveyard (No. 152), and Meadows (No. 2) on the Topley
Landing Road were reconstructed as a result of the spring flood. The Findlay Creek
Bridge (No. 121), badly damaged in the same flood, was temporarily repaired, and
all materials for a new glulam structure were purchased. Houston Bridge (No. 35)
on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway required considerable repair on the substructure as a result of driftwood damages. The Burns Lake Trestle (No. 14) on
Highway No. 35 was completely repainted by Department forces, and the Sheraton
Trestle (No. 155) east of Burns Lake, recently abandoned by reconstruction of the
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, was dismantled and salvaged.
Ferries
The Francois Lake Ferry M.V. "Jacob Henkel " again completed a successful
year's operation. However, as a result of the severe December cold spell, service
was suspended on January 2, 1965, and remained out of service until April 30, 1965.
During the freeze-in the ferry received a complete overhaul. The docks required
only minor routine maintenance.
Buildings and Yards
Burns Lake.—Footings for the steam-clean and wash-down bay addition to the
equipment shed were completed. The equipment yard was completely paved with
hot-mix asphalt.
Southbank.—An extension for a furnace-room was added to the garage. Material to complete the garage exterior was purchased. Two 1,000-gallon storage tanks
and fuel-dispensers were also installed. The ferry maintenance shed on the South-
bank wharf was completed.
Houston.—The office, parts, and upstairs storage-rooms in the garage were
completely repainted.
Prince Rupert District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out in the Prince Rupert area
and on the Queen Charlotte Islands. Calcium chloride was again applied within
the built-up areas of the Queen Charlotte Islands, with varied effectiveness due to
weather conditions and road-surface conditions.
Snow Removal.—A prolonged winter with record or near-record snowfalls
forced expenditures far above normal. As a result of lower temperatures than
usual, the snow built up along the higher levels and at times permitted only the
passage of one-way traffic. Both snow removal and sanding continued when necessary on an around-the-clock basis.
Construction.—On the Queen Charlotte City-Masset Road, an 18-mile section
was reconstructed to a subgrade width of 30 feet. A course of pit-run gravel was
laid on it.   The north approach to the Watun River Bridge was reconstructed also.
General improvements were made to the Port Edward-Cassiar Cannery Road
by widening and improving sight distance.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 105
Riprap was laid on 3.5 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway along
the Skeena River.
Gravel from the Kloiya Bay Reserve was stockpiled.
Bridges
Many bridges were cleaned and painted.    Several were redecked, and three
were shortened by replacing some bays with fills.
Materials were purchased to permit a stepped-up maintenance programme in
the coming year.
Buildings and Yards
Minor maintenance was carried out on most buildings throughout the year.
Additional land was acquired for the Prince Rupert yard, and this was partially
developed by the placing of a fill.
Skeena (East) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the district. Considerable damage and related problems were created by the high
waters in early June. The Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was closed on two
separate occasions due to flooding in the Cedarvale area, with as much as 48 inches
of water over the road. The Kitwanga ferry on the Skeena River was severely
damaged when the flood waters collapsed the towers on both sides of the river.
Stoney Creek Bridge on the Kitwanga-Hazelton Road was washed out, isolating
the Kitwanga area until a temporary crossing was installed to accommodate light
traffic. The Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was severed for the third time
due to a large slide in the Bulkley Canyon sections during mid-September.
Construction.—Summer day-labour work consisted of the reconstruction of
the Hazelton High Level Road from the Hagwilget Bridge to Hazelton (3.50
miles) and the reconstruction of a 2.0-mile section of the Babine Lake Road. The
programme was extended in the early winter to include the reconstruction of a
4.3-mile section of the Kispiox Road and the widening of the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway between Telkwa and Smithers to facilitate a base-strengthening
and paving project next year.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall throughout the district was on a par with last year.
Extremely cold temperatures prevailed throughout most of December and January.
All roads were kept open and in good condition throughout the winter.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on all bridges.   A 94-foot treated glulam
structure was erected at Moricetown Canyon, replacing an old Howe truss.
Ferries
The reaction ferry at Cedarvale provided normal service throughout the summer months, except during high water in early June.    The Kitwanga ferry was
severely damaged during the June floods and was not restored to service.
Skeena (West) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Spring load restrictions were applied March 2, 1964, and were
rescinded on May 8th.    Break-up period was lengthy, and damage to side roads
 C 106 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1964/65
was considerable. A late warm spring led to flooding by the Skeena River. A total
of 15 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway west of Terrace was flooded
by 3 feet of water. Damage to the shoulders of the highway was great. Riprap
repairs to these sections continued through to the end of the fiscal year.
Construction.—Capital funds were issued for riprap work on the Northern
Trans-Provincial Highway prior to the flooding, consequently a camp, quarry, compressors, drills, etc., were well established to take care of resultant flood damage.
Approximately 150,000 tons of shot rock were placed to protect the highway
shoulders.
Work on Kitimat Indian Village Road continued, with 1,200 feet of road
being built and 15,000 yards of rock excavated.
In October, construction of subdivision roads in Lakelse Lake area was started,
1.5 miles being completed.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was greater than average. Two hundred inches
fell at Kitimat and 260 inches at Salvus. There were periods during January and
February when the roads were actually narrowed to one-way traffic. The Northern
Trans-Provincial Highway west of Terrace was blocked by 26 snowslides for three
days in mid-January.
Bridges
Kalum Bridge, a Howe truss, was redecked and the floor beams were renewed
early this year. Flood damage to the older short-span wooden bridges west of
Terrace was considerable. The district bridge crew was occupied from mid-June
until Christmas replacing ballast walls on these bridges, as well as replacing many
of the old wooden culverts.
Ferries
Copper and Usk reaction ferries, across the Skeena River, were in service
until mid-November, 1964. Ice crossings for pedestrians only were maintained
through the months of December and January.
South Peace River District
Roads
Maintenance.—A devastatingly wet summer following a heavy run-off created
an unprecedented number of maintenance problems throughout the district. Repairing of run-off damage was barely completed when a 4.5-inch rainfall was recorded
during a 24-hour period on June 28th. Two successive floods occurred in the middle
of July and the beginning of August.
Resulting damage of these floods included 12 serious land-slips located along
two short stretches of the Alaska Highway and the destruction of three main bridges,
the most important one being the Bissette Bridge (No. 6) located on Highway No. 2
one-half mile south of Pouce Coupe. Approximately 1,000 feet of Highway No. 2
were washed out by the flooding of Tupper Creek 1 mile north-west of the Alberta
Border. In general, severe damage was done to various areas of all trunk highways,
and the condition of all roads was greatly deteriorated due to the excessive increase
in the volumes of water coursing the drainage systems.
Pavement-patching and crack-filling fell slightly short of completion due to
weather conditions. It is currently noted that pavement-cracking was relatively
increased during the recent winter.
The total length of side roads high-graded was 22.8 miles.
Highway-signing was extensive, involving the posting of all danger areas as
well as maintaining the normal programme.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 107
Construction.—A total of 8.6 miles of the John Hart-Peace River Highway,
from Mile 149.2 (Silver Sands) to Mile 157.8 (Coyote Creek), was widened, gravelled, and improved in preparation for paving.
A 1-mile section of Highway No. 2 from Bissette Creek was strengthened and
reditched in preparation for paving.
On Road No. 3, Rolla to Clayhurst, four major fills were excavated, new multi-
plate pipes installed, and fills reconstructed and gravelled.
A total of 37.2 miles of side roads was newly gravelled and 47.4 miles re-
gravelled.
Snow Removal. — Although the amount of snowfall was considerably below
average, the cost of snowploughing was abnormally high due to the continual drifting conditions.
Large amounts of sand and chemicals were used to control ice conditions during the early part of the winter.
Bridges
A total of 10 bridges was constructed during the year. They were Link (No.
11), Lillico (No. 15), Marten (No. 16), and Big Boulder (No. 17), all of which
were reconstructed under normal conditions. Maurice Creek (No. 233), Bissette
Creek (No. 6), Gunter (No. 69), and Brassey Creek (No. 65) were destroyed by
flooding and later reconstructed.
Tupper (No. 236), Cairns (No. 14), and Windrem (No. 33) were constructed
as replacements for inadequate culverts.
Routine maintenance was kept up on most bridges.
Ferries
Ferry operation was hindered by high water for a two-week period in June.
Aside from that, ferry operation was satisfactory throughout the year.

  REPORT OF COMPTROLLER OF EXPENDITURE C 139
REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF EXPENDITURE
The following pages present the financial report of the Department of Highways
for the fiscal year 1964/65.
Capital expenditures incurred under the Trans-Canada Highway Agreement
again declined sharply during this period, but a high volume of spending was maintained in all other areas. Increased expenditures for maintenance of highways,
bridges, and ferries is reflected in the graph overleaf, and it will be noted that a
total of 27.1 per cent of the budget was expended on maintenance work. Winter
maintenance costs of snow removal and ice control contributed largely to the general
increase in maintenance, as many areas of the Province experienced the most severe
snow and ice conditions on record.
A. E. Rhodes,
Comptroller of Expenditure.
