 HIGHWAYS  REPORT
REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, B.C., August 11, 1966.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—Submitted herewith are district reports for the fiscal year 1965/66.
The total length of Provincial highways is 25,812 miles and, of these, 3,780
are classed as trunk highways, 1,755 as main highways, and 20,277 as other highways. The total length of classified highways is 919 miles, and this is comprised of
475 miles of trunk highways, 229 miles of main highways, and 215 miles of other
highways.
A total of $23,080,122 was spent on the maintenance of roads, ferries, and
bridges. Included in this is $4,078,502 spent on snow removal, there being 20,378
miles of road kept open.
The total mileage of roads constructed or reconstructed by day labour was 416.
Improvements and minor betterments were made to 522 miles.
There are 51 ferries operating under the supervision of the Department. On
these were carried 2,389,718 vehicles and 5,752,849 passengers including drivers,
which is 20 and 15 per cent respectively more than that in the previous year.
There were 586 right-of-way settlements negotiated during the year, the cost
of which amounted to $2,170,553.
The total number of subdivisions handled during the calendar year 1965 was
5,077, which is 17 per cent more than that handled during the previous year. The
number of subdivisions adjacent to controlled-access highways and included in the
above was 1,388.
The total number of permits issued during the same period increased by 18
per cent, there being issued 812 for entrances on controlled-access highways, 964
for entrances on non-controlled-access highways, and 2,569 for other works on
Crown lands.
F. A. MacLean,
Assistant Deputy Minister.
 C 10 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1965/66
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER
Victoria, B.C., August 11, 1966.
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.
The total length of roads constructed or reconstructed by contract was 156
miles, an increase of 70 per cent over that of the previous year. Over half of the
above mileage was on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway and the North
Thompson Highway.
The length of plant-mix pavement laid was 294 miles, a decrease of 34 miles
from that in the previous year. However, the length of pulvimix and road-mix
pavement increased by 40 miles to 262 miles. There were laid also 3.62 miles of
portland cement concrete pavement.
There were 31 bridges completed during the year, and another 37 under construction but not completed. Major bridges constructed or under construction are
on the North Thompson Highway, the Big Bend Highway between Revelstoke and
Mica Creek, the Southern Trans-Canada Highway, and the Garibaldi Highway.
A total of 251 miles of final highway location surveys was completed. The
length of office design completed with estimates amounted to 250 miles.
Soil surveys were conducted to complement relocation surveys on several highways, particularly between Nakusp and Needles on the Slocan—Vernon Highway,
McMurdo and Golden on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway, and Red Pass and
the Alberta Boundary on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.
Investigations for foundations were carried out at 74 bridge-sites, most of
which were on the North Thompson Highway, the Upper Levels section of the
Trans-Canada Highway, and the Revelstoke-Mica Dam section of the Big Bend
Highway.
Several landslides and unstable areas were stabilized, the majority by means of
horizontal drains.  Two rockslides were stabilized by the use of rock bolts.
D. D. Godfrey,
Chief Engineer.
 REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
C 11
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
There was no relaxation of our bridge-building effort in the year under review,
as evidenced by a total gross expenditure of $6,893,000 on the 31 bridges completed
during the year and the 37 bridges under construction at the end of the year. Particulars of the structures referred to are given on the appended tabulations, a perusal
of which reveals the emphasis being placed on the completion of bridges on such
important highways as the North Thompson Highway, the Kootenay-Columbia
Highway, the Revelstoke-Mica Creek Highway, and the Garibaldi Highway.
What might be described as the " bridgingest " area at this time is the vicinity
of Castlegar, where, within a few square miles, two major structures have been, or
are being, built over the Columbia and Kootenay Rivers while two highway overpasses and a railway underpass feature in the approaches to these bridges. The
Columbia River Bridge just referred to was completed this year, and its uniqueness
has been recognized by an award of merit by the Prestressed Concrete Institute as
being the first of its kind in North America. The nearby Kootenay River Bridge at
Brilliant is scheduled for completion in the coming year, and with its imposing
435-foot arch span will uphold the Department's tradition of constructing handsome
bridges.
Completing the up-grading of the Hope-Princeton section of the Southern
Trans-Canada Highway, the widening and strengthening of the remaining six
bridges at the Princeton end of the section was undertaken this year and is
scheduled for completion in 1966. Similarly, two important structures on the
Trans-Canada Highway on Vancouver Island—Diamond and Westholme Overhead
Crossings—were widened, strengthened, and improved as to alignment this year.
Worthy of note among our construction operations in 1965 is the building of
a new bridge on the Sunshine Coast Highway immediately north of Powell River,
where, in order to use a steel arch span salvaged from another location, special
tubular steel piers were made and grouted into pre-bored holes in the solid-rock
river-bed under 70 feet of water. The many difficulties encountered in this formidable undertaking were overcome, and the structure will be completed early in 1966
to the great benefit of this important community.
A challenging undertaking by the Department this year was the construction
of six high-level bridges in the difficult terrain of the Big Bend where the access
highway to the Mica Dam is being reconstructed at higher elevations to allow of
the construction of future dams between Mica and Revelstoke. Extremely difficult
foundation problems were encountered and overcome, and the erection of superstructure steelwork is now in hand, the latter, incidentally, being largely composed
of spans acquired from the demolition of a heavy construction bridge used in
building the South Saskatchewan Dam.
Advance planning continued during the year on major projects such as the
proposed crossings of the Fraser River at Mission, over the North Arm near Fraser
Avenue, and the Sea Island approach. The studies for a possible second crossing
of the First Narrows in Vancouver continued, as also did the investigations of new
crossings necessitated by floodings following the Columbia River development.
Design work was completed on the structures required for the reconstruction of the
Trans-Canada Highway in West Vancouver and progress made on those required
for the Kamloops By-pass on the same highway.
  REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
C 13
Some older timber bridges were lost to rampaging rivers following phenomenal
rainfall in the Peace River, Kaslo, and Bella Coola areas this year, and our district
bridge crews were called on to construct replacements with all speed to minimize
the resulting dislocation of communications.
Continuing the trend in recent years, new materials of construction and new
techniques in bridge construction appear constantly and are employed in the
Department's bridge-building operations whenever shown to be advantageous. The
computer is called into use progressively more and more in design, with resulting
economy in materials and in brain power in the design office.
Bridge-building operations were not impeded by deficiencies in the material-
supply situation, but toward the end of the period a marked decline in the competitiveness of tenders received for construction was noted, attributable to the
buoyant economy of the Province.
The Bridge Engineer's staff gave the usual good account of themselves over
this period, and the services of private consulting firms continued to be called on
when necessary as, for instance, in several of the major projects under study at
this time.
The year just concluded can be recorded as an active and fruitful one as
regards bridge construction in the Province.

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION (CONTRACTS)
The mileage of highway contracts completed on all highways was 155.61
miles, of which 2.32 miles were multi-laned. This included improvement of a few
short sections of the Trans-Canada Highway, totalling 2.79 miles. The total
grading quantity of all materials moved in highway contracts was 21,667,477 cubic
yards, which was exceeded in only one previous year, 1957/58.
The main part of the programme this year was continuation of the contracts
on the Northern Trans-Provincial and North Thompson Highways to the Yellowhead Pass. Two projects, Nos. 1485 and 1486 (totalling 62.96 miles), were
awarded, from Cedarside to the Alberta Boundary. These are the last contracts in
the 152.14-mile section from the end of the black-top at McMurphy to Tete Jaune
on the North Thompson Highway, and from Tete Jaune to the Alberta Boundary
on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. The section as a whole is 38 per cent
completed.
Construction on the new route of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
from 11 miles east of Prince George to 5 miles west of McBride has been started
or previously completed, except that one construction contract has yet to be
awarded on a section now being cleared and grubbed. The progress on this 113.41-
mile section is as follows: Tabor Lake to Willow River (10.26 miles), completed;
Project No. 1476, Willow River to Hungary Creek (34.10 miles), 51 per cent
completed; Clearing and Grubbing Project No. 1477, Hungary Creek to Dome
Creek (23.22 miles), 54 per cent completed; the next 10.00 miles to Ptarmigan
Creek, previously cleared and grubbed; Project No. 1382, Ptarmigan Creek to
Crescent Spur (10.04 miles), 75 per cent completed; and the next 25.79 miles to
Lamming Mills, completed. A construction contract on the section from Hungary
Creek to Ptarmigan Creek (33.22 miles) is proposed to be awarded next year.
At McBride the approaches to the proposed new Fraser River Bridge have
been completed (1.79 miles).
On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, Prince Rupert to Prince George,
the section from Prince Rupert to Terrace is paved but has yet to be widened. The
only major section remaining to be reconstructed is east from Terrace (51.04 miles),
progress to date being as follows: Project No. 1459, Terrace Bridge to Copper
River (3.13 miles), 89 per cent completed; the next 3.02 miles, completed; Project
No. 1360, Copper River to Usk (5.74 miles), 87 per cent completed; the next
8.02 miles, completed; and two clearing and grubbing contracts, Nos. 1545 and
1546, completed, from Lot 5181 to Boulder Creek (totalling 31.13 miles). Reconstruction contracts on the latter section are proposed to be called next year.
Farther east toward Prince George, only a few sections remain to be completed. Contract No. 1379 (7.77 miles), in the vicinity of Seaton, between Hazelton and Smithers, was 96 per cent completed this year, and a few short sections,
generally relocated bridge approaches, are in progress or have yet to be completed
by day labour.
The last reconstruction contract on the John Hart-Peace River Highway, in
preparation for paving, is Project No. 1489, Willow Flats to Coyote Creek, which
is 61 per cent completed. Project No. 1358, Mile 164 to 183 (18.77 miles), was
completed this year.
Work on the Hudson Hope-Chetwynd Highway (40.14 miles) is progressing
favourably.   The three projects are as follows: No. 1377 (12.67 miles), completed;
  REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
C 23
No. 1490 (15.21 miles), 51 per cent completed; and No. 1491 (12.26 miles), 60
per cent completed.
Construction of the Stewart-Dease Lake section of the Stewart-Cassiar Highway continued, the progress being as follows: Stewart to South Bell-Irving River
(58.33 miles), completed; Clearing and Grubbing Project No. 1478, South Bell-
Irving to North Bell-Irving River (38.10 miles), completed this year; gap to
Ningunsaw River (23.92 miles), not yet started; Project No. 1391, Ningunsaw to
Burrage River (29.08 miles), awarded but not started; and the next 121.97 miles
to the north end of Dease Lake, completed.
Three important projects on Highways Nos. 3 and 3a, in the Kootenay area,
are completed or in progress. The approaches to the new Trail Bridge, Project
No. 1208 (1.10 miles), completed; Project No. 1544 (totalling 9.15 miles),
86 per cent completed; and Project No. 1460 (totalling 3.28 miles), 58 per cent
completed. The last two projects include the interchanges west and east of the
Columbia River at Kinnaird, the replacement of Highway No. 3a via Castlegar
Ferry with a direct route to Thrums via the new Kootenay River Bridge, accesses
to Robson and West Kootenay College, and a start on the final route of the Southern
Trans-Canada Highway toward Salmo via Champion Lakes.
An extension of Route No. 10, from Langley to the Livingstone Interchange
on Route No. 401, was constructed by Project No. 1442, and was completed for
paving early next year. This project included 2.40 miles of four lanes, by-passing
Langley, and 1.70 miles of two lanes connecting the Glover Road to Livingstone
Interchange.
Three contracts were awarded on the Big Bend Highway between Revelstoke
and Mica Creek Dam site. The projects, Nos. 1604, 1611, and 1612 (totalling
36.41 miles), were awarded late in the year.

  REPORT OF SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
C 29
REPORT OF THE SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
GENERAL
Although weather was generally good in the summer of 1965 and a high volume of work done, with expenditures for the year attaining a record $11 Va million,
completed surfacing or resurfacing road mileages during the year were slightly
lower than in 1964. The reason for this was that all but 3.21 miles of paving done
in 1965 was on general highways, and a high proportion of this work required
improvement and strengthening before repaving. The Trans-Canada Highway has
accounted in previous years for a larger portion of paving mileage than in 1965,
and this pavement is usually cheaper and easier to lay on newly constructed grades
than that on general highways.
During the year a total of 294.30 miles of asphalt-concrete paving was completed, of which 6.86 miles were on multi-lane highways. Also 3.62 miles of port-
land cement concrete (reinforced) were laid. A further 262.32 miles of road-mix
base processing was completed and 325.38 miles of surface treatment work
performed.
STORM DRAINAGE, BASE STRENGTHENING, AND HOT-MIX
ASPHALT PAVING
Fifteen projects carried over from 1964 were completed during the year.
Twenty-six new contracts were called and awarded; of these, 16 were completed
during the 1965 paving season. A further 9.75 miles of open-graded carpet course
were laid at Prince Rupert to correct unsatisfactory surface conditions. This type
of thin plant-mix surfacing stood up very well under severe service conditions in
Vancouver during the winter of 1964/65, and it is anticipated that more extensive
use will be made of open-graded carpet surfacing in the future.
Electronic screed control was specified on eight of the new paving contracts
awarded this year. On one contract a double control was specified as an experiment to obtain better slope transition on spiral curves, but many difficulties were
encountered. The use of electronic screed control undoubtedly improves control
of transverse slope of the asphalt pavement, but on several jobs, when the control
has been used, rough longitudinal ride has resulted. It is believed part of the difficulty may be mechanical and partly due to inexperience in the use of the control
to pave over very uneven old road surfaces. Contractors have also had problems
with the operation and maintenance of the electronic control system.
During the year, unit prices on paving contracts tended to increase. However, the increase in prices appeared only to reflect sharply increased labour costs
and increasing equipment costs and did not indicate insufficient capacity to undertake the available work. It was noted that there appeared to be excessive downtime on a number of jobs. It would seem that if prices are to be held down in the
face of high labour costs, effective measures should be taken by contractor management to reduce downtime and increase average daily production of their capital
equipment.
 C 30 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1965/66
PULVIMIXING AND SURFACE TREATMENTS
Two Paving Branch crews were kept busy most of the summer in base processing and seal-coating. A second chip spreader and an additional rubber-tired roller
were purchased and a second seal-coat crew raised from district personnel in Region
4 to complete chip seal-coating on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway west of
Prince George. This equipment was then transferred to Region 3 for use by district
crews for seal-coating east of Fernie on the Southern Trans-Canada Highway. In
addition, Region 3 also formed a pulvimix crew to carry out asphalt surfacing work
north of Rock Creek.
Paving Branch crews pulvimixed 57.14 miles of roadway, seal-coated 82.8
miles, and sand-sealed 15.9 miles. In addition, district crews pulvimixed 28.65
miles, using funds provided from the headquarters pulvimixing vote.
PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENT
A contract for 3.62 miles of multi-laned portland cement concrete pavement
on the Lougheed Highway access of Simon Fraser University was called, awarded,
and completed. Although nominally a paving contract, this contract and the overall project were prepared and generally co-ordinated by the Design and Planning
Engineer and supervised by Regional Highway Engineer as a co-operative project.
The project engineer was supplied by the Construction Branch. Subgrade and
base were constructed by day labour. Concrete construction work was inspected
by a Resident Engineer from the Paving Branch, and quality control was exercised
by the Regional Materials Engineer. A very considerable engineering effort was
required to bring the work to satisfactory completion in the allotted time.
This concrete pavement, first to be laid in many years, aroused a great deal
of interest and its performance will no doubt be critically observed.
FIELD SUPERVISION
Annual proficiency examinations were held in March, 1965, preceded by short
training courses at regional centres. The need for increased scope of training is
reflected in the varied and increasingly complex duties that have to be performed
by Paving Branch personnel.
In 1965 the Branch, despite a heavy loss of experienced Resident Engineers and
engineering aides, had not only to carry out survey and design work, material-testing,
asphalt-mix design, and supervision of paving contracts, including work for B.C.
Hydro, but was also called upon to assist the Construction Branch in supervising
asphalt hot-mix paving and base processing included in Construction grading contracts. Assistance had also to be given to Maintenance Branch in the preparation
and supervision of small local paving contracts called from Maintenance district
offices.
PERSONNEL
In November, 1965, the Senior Paving Engineer, Mr. J. W. G. Kerr, P.Eng.,
attended the annual conference of the Canadian Technical Asphalt Association in
Quebec, at which he was elected president for the year 1965/66.
In February, 1966, Mr. P. Barnes, P.Eng., attended the annual conference of
the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists at Minneapolis, at which he gained
a valuable preview of American developments in the asphalt field.

Planning Section
During the past fiscal year the Planning Section obtained sufficient low-level
aerial photography to produce high-order mapping on the Patricia Bay Highway
between Beaver Lake Park and Bazan Bay, on Highway No. 11 between Abbotsford and Mission, and photography only for studies on the Trans-Canada Highway
between Abbotsford and Hope. High-level photography was utilized to obtain
low-order mapping for route analysis at Tchesinkut Lake on the Burns Lake-
Francois Lake Road and at the Kiskatinaw River crossing on the Alaska Highway.
Preliminary route analysis, projections, and computer comparisons on alternate
routings were completed on Kamloops By-pass on the Trans-Canada Highway, on
the Katz Flats-Haig section of the Lougheed Highway, and on Kiskatinaw River
crossing on the Alaska Highway.
 C 44 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1965/66
Route projections and layouts were prepared for the following: (1) Evans
Road on the Trans-Canada Highway; (2) Sparwood By-pass on the Southern
Trans-Canada Highway; (3) Smithers Arterial on the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway; (4) Fort Steele Restoration parking-lot; (5) Oyster River to Duncan
Bay on the Island Highway; (6) Mitchell Bridge replacement on the Barkerville
Road;  (7) Nanaimo By-pass on the Island Highway.
In addition the Planning Section completed design, plan preparation, and
estimates on the following: (1) Simon Fraser University Access; (2) Lake City
Interchange to Stormont Interchange, sand drains; (3) Hungary Creek to Ptarmigan Creek on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway; (4) McMurdo to Golden

Design is currently in hand on the following: (1) 16th Avenue to University
of British Columbia; (2) South-west Marine Drive, 41st Avenue to Agronomy
Road; (3) Kamloops By-pass, Trans-Canada Highway; (4) Lamming Mills to
Holmes River, Northern Trans-Provincial Highway; (5) Carrolls Landing to Nakusp, on the Arrow Lakes.
Computer Section
l
Utilization of highway computer programmes continued to increase during the
year, Regions 1 and 3 being the most active in this respect.
The earthwork design programmes were used to process 33 projects with a
total length of 308 miles; the D.T.M. Ill preliminary survey programme was used
on five projects, and 18 traverses were run on Surmap 13.
The I.B.M. 360 computer system to be introduced by the Government will
necessitate the rewriting of all our existing programmes, but the increase in available
capacity and flexibility should enable more comprehensive programming to be
achieved.

MATERIALS TESTING BRANCH
E. E. Readshaw, Senior Materials Engineer
Soil Surveys
This year has been an active one for the soil survey crews. Several projects
being designed through the year ran through difficult terrain. Perhaps the most
difficult section is the Arrow Lakes Road between Nakusp and Needles. This road
has to be relocated before the existing road is flooded out by the Arrow Lakes Dam
at Castlegar, and the soils are mainly silts.
Another difficult survey between Golden and McMurdo in the East Kootenay
has posed foundation problems for the fills which cross old meander channels of
the Columbia River. The new road is frequently alongside the railway, which means
that special stage loading techniques have to be adopted to avoid disturbing the
railway grade. The soils consist of silts, clays, and peat deposits, which again are
mostly glacial-lake deposits.
On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, soil survey work has continued
this year, mainly on the sections between Red Pass and the Alberta Boundary, where
the highway will skirt the edges of Moose Lake and Yellowhead Lake. Here, too,
some high fills have to be constructed through deep water on very weak clays, and
special design requirements are necessary to ensure adequate fill stability. On the
western section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway near Cedarvale, drilling
and seismic investigations were carried out to locate the bedrock profile. A similar
type of survey was also run on the proposed new Upper Levels project between
Taylor Way and Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver.

Bridge Foundations
The demand for foundation investigations has been very great this year and
at one period up to 20 drill rigs were being used by the Department. Recently it
has been very difficult to obtain sufficient experienced drilling contractors to do all
the projects under design.
Seventy-four bridge-sites were investigated, nearly 50 per cent more than last
year. The great majority were on the North Thompson Highway, the Upper Levels
Highway, and the Mica Access Road. The largest projects were the possible sites
for the Mission crossing, the new First Narrows crossing, and the Needles Bridge.
All of these sites required drilling to be done over deep water. At Mission and
Needles a barge-mounted rig was used and at First Narrows temporary piled trestle
stagings were constructed in the busy waters of Burrard Inlet.
A " boomer " or " sparker " survey using repetitive electrostatic discharges
from a high energy discharge capacitor towed by a boat was made at the proposed
First Narrows crossing. The record obtained from the wave energy returned from
the bottom of the inlet presents a continuous bedrock and soils profile which was
correlated with the drilling results. This enabled the amount of drilling in deep
water required for the study to be greatly reduced.
Landslides
Several slides and unstable areas were dealt with, the majority being treated
successfully by installing 2-inch-diameter horizontal drains drilled into the unstable
area, using a special horizontal diamond-drill rig. A fill failure at Bonnington near
Nelson, two fill slides on the John Hart-Peace River Highway, a seepage area at
Annable, several wet sidehill areas on the North Thompson Highway, a small failure
area near Terrace on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, and a large fill failure
at Perow on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway were stabilized by this method.
Two rockslides, at Hells Gate and Porteau Bluffs, were dealt with. The first,
at Hells Gate in the Fraser Canyon, was started last year. Throughout the summer
and fall of this year, rock bolts and prestressed rock anchors have been installed.
This was a difficult operation as large quantities of loose rock had to be removed
by hand from a 60-degree slope before the bolts could be placed. The rock bolts
and anchors were tensioned to 6 tons and 70 tons respectively. The second area
at Porteau Bluffs, near Squamish, which has been subject to several large slides in
recent years, is also being stabilized with rock bolts. The bolts are installed by
drillers working from " spiders."
Portland Cement Concrete
A trial was made last year of repairing a spalled concrete bridge deck with a
IVi-inch-thick layer of new concrete. This appeared to be successful, good bond
to the old surface being achieved as well as a smooth riding surface. This year a
full-scale programme of resurfacing such bridge decks has commenced. This operation adds very little weight to the deck and the new surface becomes an integral part
of the structure.
The construction of a concrete pavement at the Simon Fraser University greatly
increased the amount of concrete testing to ensure that good-quality standards were
met.

Research
A substantial effort was directed toward continuing research of pavements with
relation to improving the performance and reducing costs. The work involved was
co-ordinated with other interested Provinces in Canada so that personnel could be
used more effectively.
In relation to paint evaluation, further development work was undertaken concerning methods of evaluating paints. This programme is directed toward reducing
the costs of centre-line painting without sacrificing quality.
Training
A two-day course in concrete technology was held in each region for Resident
Engineers and technicians. In addition, a four-day training course for drillers was
conducted in January, with 24 drillers receiving instruction on soil identification and
classification, safety, and drill operations.
The following table shows a summary of the work done in each region and
by the main laboratory at Victoria:—

TRAFFIC BRANCH
J. H. Harding, Senior Traffic Engineer
During the past fiscal year the Traffic Branch continued to co-operate with
individuals and organizations in the allied fields of traffic safety, community planning,
standardization of traffic-control devices, and traffic operations. The Senior Traffic
Engineer represented the Department on the British Columbia Safety Council, the
St. John Ambulance Highway First Aid Committee, the Capital Region Planning
Board, the Canadian Good Roads Association Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada, and the Canadian Good Roads Association Committee
on Traffic Operation.
Short traffic counts were taken with automatic equipment at some 800 locations
where traffic is counted annually in the summer. A number of special counts were
taken for various reasons, including all the machine-made traffic counts necessary
for two city traffic studies. Count data from our permanent count stations showed
traffic increased over 1964 totals by about 9 per cent in the Northern Interior, 5 per
cent in the Southern Interior, 12 per cent in the Fraser Valley, and 13 per cent on
Vancouver Island.
Traffic signals were installed at 24 intersections, and flashing beacons were
installed at six locations. Eighteen intersection lighting projects were completed.
Thirteen railway grade crossings were signalized in co-operation with the Federal
Board of Transport Commissioners and the railways. Work was carried out on
the testing and evaluation of new types of equipment for traffic-signal and traffic-
counting applications.
During the year numerous intersection problems were investigated, and, where
necessary, improvements such as widening, channelization, signing, and signal revisions were carried out. Designs for many new Departmental construction projects
were checked for operational adequacy.
 REPORT OF CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT C 53
Radio-controlled electrical blankout-type signs were designed and installed to
warn motorists of local ice, fog, or accidents at the Port Mann and Pattullo Bridges.
An interconnection system was designed for signals on the arterial highways through
Kelowna. This system ensures optimum progression through signals, and controls
in the fire hall provides three alternate fire-truck routes on which all signals may
be set in a few seconds to give a green light to the fire-trucks.
Changing conditions necessitated the review of many speed limits. The opinion
of the responsible police forces was obtained in most cases, and, where necessary,
actual travel speeds were checked by means of a radar speed meter.
Considerable work on a new Departmental sign manual was done during the
year, but lack of senior-staff time has delayed its completion.
The Branch assisted materially in traffic studies by consultants at Victoria,
Kamloops, and Vancouver in order to determine future transportation facilities.
E. B. Wilkins,
Design and Planning Engineer.
REPORT OF THE CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
During the 1965/66 fiscal year a total of 586 settlements were negotiated.
Three claims were submitted to arbitration proceedings for adjudication. The
expenditure for right-of-way and for other properties acquired by the Department
totalled $2,170,552.83. This included holdings purchased on behalf of the Birtish
Columbia Ferry Authority.
There were 31 sales by public tender and 20 sales by public auction of lands
which were surplus to highway requirements and of buildings to be cleared from
rights-of-way. This resulted in a recovery of $67,308.74 by tenders and of
$18,780.30 by auctions. Gross revenue from rentals, which included rentals prior
to disposal of buildings, was $53,113.83. A total of 116 buildings and parcels of
land was under short-term lease or rental agreement during the fiscal year.
Owing to the increased volume of work, a right-of-way office was established
at the year-end in Smithers as a sub-office of the Prince George Regional District.
A similar arrangement will be carried out by the creation of a branch office in
Cranbrook, which will be a subsidiary to the Nelson Regional Office.
L. J. Moore,
Chief Right-of-way Agent.
 C 54 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1965/66
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF EQUIPMENT
During the year a net total of $5,639,598.39 was expended to cover the cost
of labour, repairs, fuel, and garage overhead required to operate and maintain

8 generating sets, 2 self-propelled road-rollers, 1 40-ton low-bed trailer, and sundry
small equipment such as vibrating rollers, snow-ploughs, garage equipment, etc.
MIXING PLANTS
Two Departmental mixing plants, operating in 46 different locations, produced
48,119 cubic yards of asphalt patching material.
SIGN-SHOP
From the period April 1, 1965, to March 31, 1966, a total of 28,762 metal
and plywood signs was produced at a net expenditure of $187,929.94.
J. H. Smythe,
Superintendent of Equipment.
 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
C 55
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
Fifty-one ferries were operated under the jurisdiction of the Department of
Highways during the 1965/66 fiscal year. Of these, 13 were Government-owned
major ferries, 12 were Government-owned cable ferries, 14 Government-owned
reaction ferries, and 7 were privately owned subsidized ferries. There were also
5 Government-owned miscellaneous ferries.
TRAFFIC
The traffic for the year was a total of 2,389,718 vehicles and 5,752,849
passengers. This is an increase of 399,461 vehicles and 759,834 passengers over
the preceding year. This large increase was carried mainly by the Castlegar ferries
and by the major ferries.
MAINTENANCE
All ferries were inspected during the year, and all repair work was accomplished with a minimum of inconvenience to the public. Relief ferries were provided
wherever it was possible to do so.
NEW CONSTRUCTION AND ALTERATION
Comox District.—The landings at Comox and Powell River were completed,
and the M.V. " Comox Queen " commenced service on May 20, 1965.
Nanaimo District.—A new landing was built at Nanaimo for the Gabriola
Island Ferry.
Nelson District.—Extensive repairs were made to the Kootenay Bay landing.
Omineca (West).-—Two additional bulkheads were installed in the Francois
Lake Ferry in order to raise the vessel's load-line. This was required due to the
heavier loading demand.
Yale District.—New track carriages, containing rubber-tired wheels, were
installed on the aerial ferry at Boston Bar, North Bend.

CLAIMS AND SAFETY PROMOTION
The usual variety of claims other than those arising out of motor-vehicle accidents have been investigated and dealt with. These included damage to 36 lamp
standards, 48 bridges, 37 guard-rails, 41 sign and signal posts, 14 bridge railings
and barriers, and 8 cases of blasting which produced 15 claims. The use of a new
form for reporting damage to Government property has greatly increased the number of reports over those previously received.
In the area of litigation, there are 16 cases pending in which we are the plaintiff
and 29 cases in which we are the defendant.
Held were 17 meetings of the Interdepartmental Safety Committee and nine
meetings of the Department of Highways Headquarters Safety Committee.
During the year 58 districts or crews won 61 British Columbia Safety Council
awards of merit.   These included 6 gold, 14 silver, and 41 bronze awards.
The downward trend of the injury frequency rate in all districts reflects the
efforts of the Headquarters Safety Committee, the local district safety committees,
and supervisory personnel, and clearly indicates a real interest generally in accident
prevention, which is most gratifying.

 REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER C 71
REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
The high standard of highway maintenance throughout the past year was the
result of greater efficiency of all our crews and machines.
Total expenditure for all maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries
amounted to $23,080,122. It was 6 per cent higher than the previous year's expenditure. A total of 20,378 miles of highway was maintained throughout the year
and kept open during another severe winter.
For the second successive year, snowfall was much above normal, particularly
in Region 1. While snowfall in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island
was not quite as heavy as in the previous winter, nevertheless crews worked long
hours in keeping roads open and salted for the convenience of the travelling public.
Total snowfall varied from 80 to 100 inches throughout the Lower Mainland, and
from 70 inches at Duncan to 165 inches at Campbell River on Vancouver Island.
Experience gained during the previous winter's severe conditions enabled crews to
operate with greater efficiency.
During the early part of January very heavy snowfalls precipitated severe
slides and forced closure of the Fraser Canyon for several days. During the 13-day
period from December 27, 1965, to January 8, 1966, snowfall was 147 inches at
Spuzzum and 136 inches at Hells Gate.
The quantity of chemical and sand used for ice control was much above normal
because of the severe winter. All crews are to be congratulated for the high standard of winter maintenance provided under difficult conditions.
Except for closures in the Fraser Canyon because of snowslides, all our main
roads—Rogers Pass, Blueberry-Paulson, Salmo-Creston, and John Hart-Peace
River Highways—were kept open and in good condition.
With the employment of a full-time landscape supervisor, the roadside landscaping programme was expanded. More technical control and advice were provided to district officials to guide them in the proper use of sterilants and in providing
a more effective weed- and brush-spraying programme.
The programme of improving side roads was continued and expanded. Road-
mix pavement and dust-layer were provided wherever possible for the convenience
of the travelling public and roadside residents.
The radio system again proved invaluable in providing faster and more efficient
service during the prolonged severe winter.
All bridges were maintained throughout the area, and wherever possible were
eliminated by culvert and fill. During the latter part of June and the early part of
July, heavy and continuous rainfall in the Peace River area resulted in considerable
flooding of the Halfway River and adjacent streams. Major bridges at Farrell
Creek, Lynx Creek, and Halfway River on the Hudson Hope-Fort St. John Road
were washed out. In addition, many other bridges on side roads were washed out.
District bridge crews erected temporary Bailey bridges at all crossings, and the
road was opened to traffic within a few weeks.
The bridge register was revised, with the setting-up of a new permanent bridge
register and also a bridge maintenance and inspection register. It is hoped that the
new system will provide more exact and up-to-date information at any time on the
condition of all bridges throughout the Province.
An expenditure of $13,093,000 in day-labour funds will indicate the extensive
amount of reconstruction, widening, and other improvements to side roads carried
out during the year.
 C 72 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1965/66
Many new equipment-sheds were built, and some existing ones were expanded,
throughout the Province. An equipment-shed and houses for a maintenance crew
were provided at Dease Lake, which will enable the establishment of a permanent
maintenance crew for that section of the Stewart-Cassiar Highway.
I am pleased, therefore, to report that the standard and efficiency of highway
maintenance in general has shown much improvement during the past year. Much
of the improvement was accomplished through having better-trained foremen and
operators on the job, less time-loss accidents among employees, and the use of more
suitable maintenance equipment.

Senior Maintenance Engineer.

Esquimalt, Lillooet (South), Mackenzie, Nanaimo-Islands, New Westminster,
North Vancouver, Saanich, Vancouver East, and Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral Districts.
Alberni District
A 10-mile section of the Alberni-Tofino Road was reconstructed. This was
a heavy rock section from Kennedy Lake easterly. The truck lane was extended
on the Alberni-Parksville Highway leading out of Alberni.
Redford Street, leading into Port Alberni, was recapped with hot-mix asphalt.
A major winter snowfall was dealt with successfully.
Burnaby District
Roads
Maintenance.—Roads were maintained in good condition throughout the district.   Soil sterilant was sprayed around most guard-rails and sign-posts.
This being the second season, the grass has become well established on Trans-
Canada Highway No. 401, and mowing has developed into a major maintenance
problem.
An experimental planting programme was undertaken in the late spring for
the purpose of determining which of several varieties of plants would be most
suitable for use in beautification and stabilization of highway verges. Three test-
plots were prepared on the slopes of the Stormont Interchange on Trans-Canada
Highway No. 401, and some 40,000 plants of varying varieties were planted.
Construction.—The access road to the Simon Fraser University was completed. Work is continuing on the landscaping, and fencing of the right-of-way
with a chain link fence is under way.
A left-turn slot was constructed on Lougheed Highway at Boundary Road.
Considerable concrete no-post guard-rail was installed on Trans-Canada Highway No. 401 at the various underpass structures.
Snow Removal.—A total of 98 inches of snowfall was recorded for the winter.
From December through to March, the maintenance crews operated on a 24-hour
basis most of the time, carrying out snow-removal operations.
Roads were kept open at all times in generally good winter condition with
a minimum of traffic delays.
Some 1,300 tons of salt were used to combat the ice and snow, and considerable hired equipment was employed to assist Departmental equipment in the snow-
removal operations.
Bridges
Normal maintenance and repairs were carried out on all bridges in the district.
Chilliwack District
Roads
Maintenance.—All roads were well maintained throughout the year. Mowers
operated continuously during the growing season, with particular attention to High-
 C 74 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1965/66
way No. 401. Shoulders and gravel medians were sprayed with soil sterilant.
Brush kill was used on Highways No. 401 and No. 1 and several main side roads.
Calcium chloride and salt was used as a dust-layer on sections of gravel roads.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Extensive patching of pavement was carried out on
the Abbotsford-Mission Highway.
Road-mix pavement was laid on 1.7 miles of Chilliwack Lake Road and 0.15
mile of the frontage road at Clearbrook Interchange.
Construction.—Reconstruction consisted of 0.5 mile of Columbia Valley Road
and the bridge approaches for Frost Creek Bridge No. 2. Sections of Iverson Road
and 2 miles of Frost Road were widened.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was very heavy in all areas. Due to extreme drifting, Highway No. 401 was closed for 6 hours on January 5th. However, roads
were kept in generally good condition.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained in good condition. Frost Creek Bridge No. 2, a
log-stringer span 43 feet in length, was constructed.
Buildings
A storage-shed at Abbotsford, 16 by 24 feet, and an equipment-shed at Rosedale, 15 by 30 feet, were constructed.
Comox District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads.
Heavy snowfall was experienced during the winter. Courtenay had a total
fall of 131 inches, with 237 inches at Forbidden Plateau. Campbell River had
165 inches.
Day Labour.—1. Port Hardy-Port McNeill-Beaver Cove: About 10 miles
of road between Port Hardy and Port McNeill were upgraded to 36 feet top and
gravelled. Between Port McNeill and Beaver Cove, 4 miles of new grade were
stripped of vegetation and topsoil in preparation of construction.
2. Port Alice-Rumble Beach: Construction of the road was completed and
is now under contract for paving.
3. Kelsey Bay Ferry Approach: 1.4 miles of road were constructed for the
ferry approach.    This included preparation for paving.
4. Quadra Island: Green Road has been rough-graded and is presently being
gravelled.   This involves 1.4 miles of new road.
5. Courtenay Area: On the Oyster River Bridge approaches, construction
was completed on 1.16 miles of new road to service the new Oyster River Bridge;
construction of the bridge is not yet completed. Under miscellaneous reconstruction and paving a total of 5.25 miles of road was reconstructed and paved.
6. Parksville Area: Reconstruction in preparation for paving was carried out
on Marina Way, Steward Road, and Wall Beach Road; this involved about 4 miles
of road.   A total of 6 miles of paving was done on numerous short roads.
Bridges
New Construction.—McDonald Creek Bridge No. 151, on Island Highway
near Sayward, was reconstructed.
Port Alice Bridge No. 2, on Port Alice-Rumble Beach Road, was replaced
when the original bridge was washed out during heavy run-off.
Quinsam River Bridge No. 456. on the Brewster Lake Road, was found to be
in very poor condition.    A detour bridge was constructed to carry heavy loads.
 -—
Trans-Canada Highway No. 1, Upper Levels, North Vancouver.
 C 76 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1965/66
This bridge will be used as a detour when the original bridge is replaced by a
permanent structure.
Power House Bridge No. 120, on the Power House Road, was replaced by a
new structure.
Maintenance. — Black Creek Bridge No. 3, on the Island Highway, was
strengthened with new stringers and an additional bent.
Other bridges were maintained as needed.
Ferries
Normal ferry service was maintained between Campbell River and Quadra
Island, Buckley Bay and Denman Island. The ferry between Comox and Powell
River experienced some difficulties during winter storms.
Buildings
A foreman's residence for Port Hardy was moved in from the Vancouver area
and is now being used by the Port Hardy foreman.
A two-bay salt-storage shed and open equipment-shed was built in the
Courtenay yard.
Comox (South) District
Pavement was provided on heavily travelled streets. Due to several new
schools being built in the area, major widening of a number of roads was required
to allow shoulders for the children walking to school.
Winter conditions were extreme, with very heavy snowfall over a continuing
period.   This was handled successfully.
Cowichan-Newcastle District
A programme of paving main-type farm-to-market routes was carried out,
with 6.25 miles of these routes paved during the fiscal year.
Major gravel renewal was undertaken on many rural roads, and a programme
of shoulder-widening was undertaken where pedestrian traffic was heavy.
The winter conditions were extreme, and a very heavy snowfall was dealt with
successfully.
Delta District
Roads
Maintenance.—Roads were maintained to a high standard throughout the
district.
Most guard-rails and sign-posts were treated with soil sterilant; also, many
sections of gravel shoulder on Trans-Canada Highway No. 401 and Deas Tunnel
Throughway No. 499 were similarly treated.
Grass-cutting on Trans-Canada Highway No. 401 and Deas Tunnel Through-
way No. 499 is a major maintenance problem. During peak growing periods in
the spring and early summer, the mowing equipment must operate on double shift
in order to keep up with the growth.
An experimental planting programme was undertaken this year to determine
which varieties of plant would be most suitable for the purpose of beautification and
stabilization of highway verges. A test-plot was prepared on the slopes of King
George Interchange on Highway No. 499, and some 10,000 plants of varying
varieties were planted.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 77
Extensive landscaping was undertaken on the Campbell River Interchange on
Highway No. 499. All the steeper slopes were cleared of grass, and several varieties
of shrubs and trees were planted.
Construction. — On Trans-Canada Highway No. 401 between Springbrook
Interchange and County Line Interchange, district forces undertook work to improve drainage and pave the shoulders in the areas where guard-rail was erected.
Approximately 23,000 lineal feet of shoulder were paved.
A frontage road was constructed on Carvolth Road at the Carvolth Interchange on Trans-Canada Highway.
Construction of a third lane on Highway No. 10 between Latimer Road and
188th Street was completed this year except for paving.
Considerable concrete no-post guard-rail was installed on Trans-Canada Highway No. 401 and Deas Tunnel Throughway No. 499.
Snow Removal.—A heavy snowfall was experienced this winter. Between
December and early March, some 93 inches of snow fell. The maintenance crews
throughout this period operated on a 24-hour basis, ploughing, salting, and sanding.
Roads were kept open and in generally good winter condition with minimum traffic

Cariboo (South), Kamloops, Lillooet (North), North Okanagan, Revelstoke,
Salmon Arm, Similkameen, South Okanagan and Yale Electoral Districts
Cariboo (South) District
Roads
Maintenance.—A substantial part of the summer was spent repairing damage
resulting from the most extensive flooding in memory. At one time every major
road in the district, including the Cariboo Highway, was cut to through traffic. The
Cariboo Highway was cut at Deep Creek, 15 miles north of Williams Lake, where
a Bailey bridge was installed until the flow of water receded. Several temporary
wooden bridges were installed on the Horsefly and Likely Roads where culverts
were washed out.
Repairs to damaged roads delayed work planned for the summer. However,
most of this was completed because of good weather prevailing throughout the fall.
A major effort was made to overhaul and in some cases actually construct
several miles of frontage roads. Partly triggered by the spring damage, a great
many minor improvements were made on side roads.
Construction.—The regional scraper crew completed 2.1 miles of the Likely
Road from the Cariboo Highway to Horsefly junction, 0.5 mile of the Williams
Lake-Dog Creek Road, and 5 miles of the Chilcotin Highway in the Riske Creek
area.
A start was made on rebuilding 2 miles of the road along the north shore of
Bridge Lake, one-half mile being completed. Construction was completed also on
1.2 miles of the Deka Lake-Canim Lake Road.
Some widening was commenced on the Canim Lake Road between Mile 14
and Mile 29.
Paving.—Road-mix pavement was laid on 1.4 miles of the South Lakeside

Reconstruction of one major structure, Hanceville Bridge (No. 367), commenced in late fall.   This work is scheduled for completion in the summer of 1966.
Chisholm (No. 361), Coldspring (No. 607), Bourelle (No. 608), and Dog
Creek (No. 609) Bridges were built to replace culverts found to be inadequate
during heavy run-off. Six other minor bridges were renewed, and fifteen bridges
received minor to major repairs.
Kamloops District
Roads
Trunk and Main Highways.—General maintenance was carried out on all trunk
and main highways. Since the opening of the Kamloops Pulp Mill, it was observed
that traffic volumes, particularly comprising heavy loads of chips, increased considerably on arterial highways in the City of Kamloops. Other routes also have
had increased traffic volumes.
Our efforts to widen and up-grade the shoulders on older sections of the main
highways were bringing results, and it is hoped that next year all of these sections
will be completed.
Patching, sign maintenance, right-of-way maintenance, and weed control were
given top priority.
Maintenance costs were kept and reported on regularly on specified sections
of the Trans-Canada Highway for evaluation by our Research and Development
Engineer.
We had a normal winter; however, the rather frequent snowfalls necessitated
round-the-clock snow removal, sanding, and chemical applications. Within a few
hours of a snowfall and with the proper use of abrasives and chemicals, it was
possible to bring about either bare pavement or a relatively skid-free surface in
a short while after a snowfall or freezing rain.
The North Thompson Highway (No. 5) was restricted to essential traffic due
to the extensiveness of the construction programme. Over 150 miles of the highway
was under construction. A number of minor snowslides resulted in the highway
being closed for a few days. Large signs were erected at Kamloops and Jasper
advising the travelling public of the extensiveness of the construction programme.
The spring break-up was excellent, with restrictions being placed for a short
period of time only.   Traffic on the Trans-Canada Highway was not restricted.
The loggers and truckers co-operated to minimize damage to roads.
Other Highways and Roads.—Routine maintenance was carried out on all
other roads and considerable improvements done to main country roads and school
bus routes.
Bridges
All bridges in the district were inspected and the necessary repairs were carried
out or estimated for next year's programme.
The following bridges were completely reconstructed: Jamieson Creek (No.
118), 20 feet long, 32 feet wide, concrete abutments, steel stringers; Corkscrew
(No. 58), 20 feet long, 24 feet wide, concrete abutments, steel stringers; Hemp
Creek (No. 112), 36 feet long, 18 feet wide, log stringers on piles; Lemieux Creek
No. 4 (No. 132), 36-foot log-stringer span, 16 feet wide.
On Raft River Bridge (No. 166) a 100-foot log-stringer span on piles was
erected as a temporary bridge for heavy loads.    Raft River Bridge has several
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 85
broken stringers; however, it will handle light traffic until a new bridge on the
reconstructed alignment of the North Thompson Highway is completed.
Deck repairs were carried out on four bridges, and sidewalks were installed
on two others.
Considerable work was done on Overlanders Bridge (No. 208) to determine
the extent of fire damage which resulted from a warehouse fire in September.
Landscaping and seeding on the bridge approaches were extended to the westerly
approach from North Kamloops.
Ferries
All ferries were checked and the necessary repairs and painting carried out.
The towers at Little Fort were deteriorated beyond repair and have been replaced
by steel-frame towers.   All approach ramps have been renewed.
Day-labour Construction
North Thompson Highway: 1.2 miles are under construction to Trans-Canada
Highway standard on the Raft River section; 60 per cent of the work is completed.

miles.
Lillooet (North) District
Roads
Maintenance.—General routine maintenance was carried out on all roads in
the Lillooet District, with particular attention being paid to slide-control work in
the Bridge River valley. This included the clearing-off of numerous catch roads
and building up the road-bed where settlement occurred.
Weed-burning and brush control were carried out on main roads.
Construction and Surfacing.—The turn-off to Loon Lake from the Cariboo
Highway was built in a new location, greatly improving this piece of road. An
access to the new overhead crossing at Gibbs Creek on the Lillooet-Cache Creek
Highway was also built.
Three miles of road between Shalalth and Seton Portage were paved. This
included the Bridge River townsite. Elsewhere some 26 miles of road were gravelled.
Reconstruction.—Three miles of road were reconstructed on Highway No. 12b
between the Hat Creek Turn-off and the Cariboo Highway. Both approach roads
to Ashcroft from the Trans-Canada Highway were widened, with slopes being recut
preparatory to repaving.
Sections of the road over Mission Mountain were widened and straightened,
this necessitating considerable rock work. Some 3 miles of the Pemberton Meadows
Road (No. 171) were realigned and regravelled, along with 1 mile on Pemberton
Portage (No. 172).
 C 86 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1965/66
Snow Removal.—Lillooet had more snow than the previous year to contend

of which were on the paved surface of the Vernon-Slocan Highway. District forces
also completed 4.16 miles of road-mix surface.
Snow Removal.—The 1965/66 winter snowfall was again 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 kept open each day,
with one exception in the Needles area.
Bridges
One 50-foot timber bridge was replaced by multi-plate culvert and fill. Major
repairs were made to two timber structures, and many minor repairs were made to
other bridges.

suburbs, and various side roads for dust control.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 87
Trans-Canada Highway
Five miles of the Trans-Canada Highway that were prepared for slope seeding
two years ago were seeded. Snow-removal maintenance was worked on a three
8-hour shift basis. An additional 11.65 miles were acquired for snow removal
through to the Glacier Park boundary. No exceptional maintenance was required.
The Department maintained all snow removal through Revelstoke National Park.
There were minor slides at Three Valley, Summit and Victor Lake West, and Silver
Creek and Downie Cut-off east, and 2 miles east of the west gate, resulting in short
road closures.
Communications
Sprout Mountain is still giving considerable trouble with the picking-up of
interference with New Denver crews; other than this, communications in general
are fair to good.
Day Labour
Construction is 80 per cent complete on the Solsqua-Sicamous Road No. 270,
also Nichol Road No. 20 was completed. A major clearing and grubbing programme was carried out on Galena Pass No. 810, involving some 3 miles of new
alignment.
Bridges
No new structures were constructed by district forces. Major repairs were
carried out on the Lanark West Wing Wall and the Twin Avalanche Sheds.
Ferries
The M.V. " Lardeau " ran a trouble-free shuttle service between Galena Bay
and Arrowhead. Minor ice problems were experienced at various times. Twelve

considerable trouble with sandbar build-up in the middle of the channel. This was
cleared with the use of a dragline and bucket working the bar below the ferry.
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads within the district. The programme of weed control along the Trans-Canada
Highway was continued, and the right-of-way was brushed out and burned. A small
amount of calcium was used as a dust preventive in isolated areas. Oil was used
extensively as dust control on side roads through the built-up areas. Unexpected
slides on the Trans-Canada Highway (Canoe-Sicamous section) required considerably more than maintenance clean-up.

Monroe Lake Road was widened, gravelled, and a road-mix pavement laid on
1.15 miles.
On Mount Baker Road and McKenzie Drive a total of 1.20 miles were widened
and gravelled.
Materials were purchased for fencing through Crown lands 14.25 miles of the
Southern Trans-Canada Highway from Cranbrook Overhead Crossing to Rampart
and Highway No. 93 from Eager Junction north.
Snow Removal.—With an average snowfall being encountered this past winter,
roads were opened and maintained with very little delay. Chemicals were used
extensively to keep the pavement bare on most sections of main highways.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained as required. Meadow Creek Bridge was reconstructed completely. Considerable sand blasting and painting were undertaken on
rusted sections of two steel bridges. New decks and ties were installed on four
bridges.
Buildings
Heating of the Cranbrook garage was changed from oil to natural gas.
Fernie District
Roads
Maintenance.—All district roads were maintained to a satisfactory standard
throughout the year. Several miles of side roads in the Natal area were reditched
and regravelled. Major improvements to alignment and grade were made in the
Jaffray area. In addition, right-of-way clearing projects were undertaken to improve road conditions. The main highways were treated with chemicals to eliminate
brush and weeds both on the shoulders and right-of-way. Twelve miles of side roads
were treated with asphalt for dust control.
Construction.—Two miles of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway were reconstructed at Hosmer by the regional construction crew. District forces completed
the project by placing crushed gravel and laying a pulvi-mixed asphalt surface.
A landscaping project was completed within the City of Fernie to improve the appearance of the highway, and this project, as well as the Hosmer project, was seeded
with the hydro-seeder.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 93
Highway No. 93 was reconstructed a distance of 2.93 miles north from Wasa
by Cranbrook district forces.
Snow Removal. — A normal amount of snow fell at Fernie (180 inches).
A night shift was used again this year, with satisfactory results. There were no
slides at Morrissey this year, principally because of the avalanche protection work
which was undertaken in the summer of 1965.
Bridges
Materials were ordered for reconstruction of the Betania's and Stewart Bridges
in the Jaffray area. Minor repairs were carried out on several district bridges.
A concreting project on the West Fernie Bridge enabled the crews to place a protective cap over the deteriorated concrete in the piers. Davis Bridge at Roosville was
completely reconstructed.
Grand Forks-Greenwood District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the year. Shoulder-widening was continued on the Anarchist Mountain section and
was also started on the Kettle Valley section of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway.
During the year 9,400 feet of concrete guard-rail was placed on the Christina-
Kinnaird section of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway.
Widening on the Alpine Inn-Texas Point Road was completed and 1.77 miles
paved.
Widening and improvements were carried out on the Kettle Valley South Road
and the Boundary Creek Road, and some 3 miles of Land Settlement Board subdivision roads were constructed in the Grand Forks area.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Rock Creek-Kelowna Road was started
in August, and by the end of the year 20.2 miles of grade were completed, inclusive
of work started last year.
Widening and grade revisions were carried out on Kettle River Main Road
from Mile 0.0 to Mile 3.25, with the work being 80 per cent complete by the end of
the year.
Paving.—A total of 12.1 miles of pulvimixing was carried out on the Rock
Creek-Kelowna Road, including 8.1 miles of repaving between Rock Creek and
Westbridge, 3 miles at Boyer Creek, and 1 mile through Beaverdell.
On the Grand Forks-Franklin Road, 1.56 miles of road mix and 1.02 miles of
seal-coat were completed.
In the Grand Forks, Christina Lake, and Kettle Valley areas, 7.03 miles of
new penetration seal paving and 4.72 miles of seal-coating were done.
Snow Removal.—All roads were kept open and well sanded. Snowfall was
average at lower levels, but was less than last year at higher levels. Snow-storms
were lighter but more frequent, thus reducing the ploughing necessary but requiring
extensive sanding. Lighter snowfall on the higher levels resulted in a considerable
reduction in snowslides on the Christina-Kinnaird section of the Southern Trans-
Canada Highway.
Bridges
New log-stringer bridges were constructed to replace Fife Mine Bridge
(No. 175), washed out by high water, and to replace inadequate culverts at Texas
Creek.
Major repairs were carried out on Blythe Bridge (No. 125), damaged in an
accident, First Street Bridge (No. 81), and Granby Bridge (No. 88).    Less exten-
  REGIONAL REPORTS C 95
sive repairs, including washing and painting where necessary, were carried out on
36 other bridges.
Buildings
Greenwood equipment-shed was revised to obtain more usable space by removing the partition between two bays and by adding an extension on the third bay.
A new oil-house and fuel pumps were erected at Beaverdell.
A weigh-scale with building and approach roads was constructed near Midway
for the Department of Commercial Transport.
Kaslo-Slocan District
Roads
The road mix from Kaslo north to Marblehead and plant mix from Nakusp
south to the end of Summit Lake were the main improvements for the year.
All but a 200-foot section of the Coffee Creek bluff was widened to a minimum
of 30 feet.
A section on Highway No. 6 north of Rosebery was widened without major
alignment changes and road-mixed under adverse weather conditions. There now
remain only 4 miles of Highway No. 6 without asphalt surface between New Denver
and the south boundary at Slocan Park.
The Celgar Road was surveyed to Halfway and the right-of-way cleared and
grubbed for 75 per cent of this distance. Progress was slow because of the debris
left by the original logging construction and the rough terrain.
Major improvement of a mile west of Kaslo on the Kaslo-New Denver road
was completed to subgrade in c >operation with the village to install a new water
main.
A new access to Kaslo from the south was completed in connection with the
new Kaslo Bridge.
A new route for the arterial highway in Slocan was constructed with a screened-
gravel base ready for road mixing.
The Village of Nakusp was incorporated, and the maintenance of its streets
ceased to be our responsibility.
Our weed- and brush-control programme continued, and a start was made on
shoulder improvements on Highway No. 6.
A start was made on a by-pass of the Amundsen or Fletcher Bluffs south of
Kaslo.
Bridges
The Kaslo Bridge was wrecked by a high load, and a detour was built for a
triple-single Bailey structure 120 feet long to maintain traffic. A permanent-type
two-span structure using creosote piles and glulam creosoted beams was completed
to replace the destroyed bridge.
A single-span bridge of the same beam design was placed on the concrete abutments of Kuskanax Bridge at Nakusp.
The new bridge at Halfway River on the Celgar Road was completed. This
is also a glulam creosoted structure on creosoted piles.
Ferries
Only minor interruptions of service occurred on the ferries at Arrow Park and
Needles.
A new ramp was constructed at Arrow Park east landing.
The spare ferry barge was rehabilitated for anticipated use during overhaul of
the other ferries.
  .......   ..
REGIONAL REPORTS C 97
Safety
The entire district worked without a time-loss accident from mid-September
until the end of March. This earned a bronze certificate for the district in addition
to similar awards for several of the area crews and the shop.
Nelson-Creston District
Roads
Maintenance.—Use of soil sterilants, weed and brush killers, and hydro-seeding
continued as part of the highway beautification programme. Improvements were
carried out to several roads, including Hagen, Nasookin, Bealby, Perrier, and
Blewett Roads, and orchard roads in the Creston area. Sections of the Salmo River
were realigned and riprapped. Portions of shoulders on the Salmo-Creston Highway were paved to prevent erosion. No problems were experienced during the
spring run-off.
Construction.—The Cora Linn-Bonnington section of Highway No. 3a was
completed. Reconstruction of the Creston-Summit Creek Road was completed
from Highway No. 3 to the West Creston ferry-landing. The Kokanee Park Road
was reconstructed. Reconstruction of the Sanca Creek-Kuskanook section of
Highway No. 3a was commenced. The Harrop-Procter Road was recapped with
a road-mix pavement. Foundation for the fill over the Dead Horse Creek section
of Highway No. 21 was placed.
Snow Removal.—Snowfalls were extremely heavy during the first half of the
winter. Despite frequent storms, the mild temperatures and the use of salt kept
most main roads bare between storms. Snowslide activity was widespread on the
Salmo-Creston Highway. Road closures were frequent. Benches constructed in
the slide zones west of the summit reduced the size and number of slides, which
occurred in these sections by approximately 50 per cent.
Bridges
The Barrett Creek Bridge on Highway No. 6 was reconstructed. Two bridges
on the Kokanee Park Road were reconstructed. General maintenance and repair
were carried out to all bridges in the district.
Ferries
The Kootenay Lake ferries were operated on an hourly schedule during the
summer months. Twenty-four-hour service was provided on the Harrop Ferry
during the summer months. The Glade Ferry was removed from service during
high water.
Rossland-Trail District
Roads
A large multi-plate culvert and fill replaced a bridge at Murphy Creek on the
Trail-Castlegar section of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway. The project was
done by the district as a day-labour project, together with 0.24 mile of clearing and
grading the Red Mountain Ski Club Access Road. One mile of base preparation
and road-mix paving on the Columbia Gardens Road was completed under the day-
labour project.
Other projects included 1.03 miles of reconstruction and paving of Meadow
Road and Ostrum Road from its junction with Highway No. 3 and the new Kinnaird
High School.
 C 98 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1965/66
Sundry streets of 20.5 miles in length in the Blueberry, Genelle, Lower China
Creek, Rivervale, Fruitvale, and Casino communities received base construction
and road-mix paving or inverted prime as a continuing policy programme to reduce
mileage of gravel roads within densely populated areas.
A major effort to catch up on brush growth was initiated early using manual
and chemical methods of control. This programme was restricted to Highways
Nos. 3, 3b, and 22 during the 1965/66 year. Approximately 33 miles were done
on this project.
Snow removal was above average. Ice conditions were controlled by using
salt, calcium chloride, and sand.
Ferries
Traffic over the Castlegar ferries continued to increase every month throughout
the fiscal year. Normal traffic delays for routine maintenance repairs were
experienced.
Bridges
Blueberry Creek Bridge received a complete new deck system and approach
bents with log-crib type abutments. Pile bents on the main span were strengthened
with additional and replacement piling.
Buildings
An oil house-warehouse was completed at Fruitvale. Salt-sheds were completed at Fruitvale and Castlegar with district labour.
REGION No. 4
(R. G. Harvey, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George, B.C.)
Atlin, Cariboo (North), Fort George, North Peace River, Omineca, Prince Rupert,
Skeena, and South Peace River Electoral Districts.
Atlin (North) District
During the summer the Mud Hill revision on the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway and 17 miles from the Alaska Highway, which was commenced in 1964, was
completed and opened to traffic.
Many old bridges on the first section of the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway
were repaired and strengthened in readiness for the moving of the contractor's
heavy equipment to the Burrage River project on the Stewart—Watson Lake Highway.
Slough was removed as usual this summer by dragline on either side of the
Stikine River, and several miles of regravelling was done south of Good Hope Lake.
At the end of September the Fort St. John bridge crew and Resident Engineer
set up camp at Dease Lake and first poured a slab to move the existing power-house
at Good Hope Lake to a new location, so that they could proceed with the construction of a large concrete foundation for a new steel equipment-shed. Twenty-six
thousand feet of lumber, 1,750 bags of cement, and all the other materials required
were trucked 760 miles to Dease Lake, where a new yard-site was cleared and
another concrete foundation was poured for another equipment-shed. Two full
basements for pre-built houses were poured, also slabs for an oil-shed and foreman's
office and power-house. The project was completed as winter set in, and the contractors proceeded to install the buildings.
In January the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway was opened up from the Cassiar
turn-off so that the contractor could move equipment into the new contract section.
The Stikine ferry was working steadily with an increased volume of traffic, and
will continue to do so with the building of the new road at Burrage River.
  C 100 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1965/66
Atlin (South) District
Roads
Maintenance.—The increase in activity in mining created a demand for more
maintenance of roads and trails in the Stewart and Alice Arm areas.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was high, being 438 inches at Premier, 213 inches
at Stewart, and 157 inches at Alice Arm.
Since it is necessary to pass through Alaska territory to reach the Premier area,
near Stewart, an 11.3-mile stretch of Alaska road was maintained by our forces
throughout the winter months.
Bridges
Temporary bridges were repaired and rebuilt on the Stewart-Watson Lake
Highway; decking and some cross-ties were removed from the temporary suspension
bridge over the Bell-Irving River, to lessen the snow load, on this same highway.
A new deck, 366 feet in length, was laid on Bear River Bridge No. 1.
Cariboo (North) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Warm temperatures in early spring of 1965 created a rapid
thaw, causing small rivers and creeks to overflow their banks, flooding roads and
taking out bridges. Three bridges were lost and seven washed out around abutments
and approaches. All roads south and west of Quesnel were impassable for several
days.
Routine maintenance was carried out on all district roads, with a continued
emphasis placed on gravelling in the Nazko and Punchaw areas.
The Barkerville Road was again treated for dust control over the 35 miles of
gravel, giving a reasonably comfortable condition for the numerous tourists making
the trip.
Work was carried out on three large landslides, the historic Plywood Slide,
completion of the Dragon Creek fill failure, and the Strathnaver South Slide.
Construction.—Reconstruction was carried out on 7.2 miles of district roads.
Pulvimix was laid on 2.0 miles of the Blackwater Road and 3.7 miles on the Red
Bluff Road.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was about average but falling in a concentrated
period.   January had snowfall in 28 days out of 31.
Bridges
Three bridges lost in spring flooding were rebuilt, and repairs carried out on
seven which were damaged.    In addition, five small bridges in the district were
rebuilt.
Buildings
A two-bay garage was built in Hixon for a proposed maintenance depot, and
a one-bay addition and oil-house were constructed in Wells.   Property was purchased
at McLeese Lake for relocation of the Soda Creek maintenance depot.
Ferries
All three ferries operated throughout the summer and fall without any problems
or interruptions.
Fort George District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all district roads, including additional gravelling in many areas.   An ever-increasing demand for addi-
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 101
tional subdivision improvements every year is anticipated as the area continues to
grow at its present explosive rate.
Day-labour work was very successful, with a great many improvements being
made to the Prince George-Giscome section of the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway.
Snow Removal.—Heavy and frequent snowfalls after Christmas kept operations busy, with particular heavy demands for service within the sprawling subdivisions. Emphasis was placed on bare pavement, with frequent ploughing and use
of salt.
Bridges
Four bridges on the John Hart-Peace River Highway were replaced with precast concrete-stringer structures, and a new timber-stringer span was built on a
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway feeder road at Dodd Creek.
Ferries
Isle Pierre ferry operated all year with light volume of traffic.
Hansard ferry operated during the summer months on a 24-hour basis, carrying
a very heavy volume of traffic.
North Peace River District
This was a very busy year, with an early start being made in April on the 4
miles of Lookout Road reconstruction for British Columbia Hydro and Power
Authority at the Portage Mountain Dam. A considerable amount of rock work
was involved, which was blasted by the dam contractors and removed by the
Department. The project was completed before the tourist season, in readiness for
paving. Approximately a quarter of a million yards of gravel was hauled in to
construct the base, as the side borrow was unusable and in a saturated and partly
frozen condition.
Following this project, the hill leading into Hudson Hope was widened and
cut down and a 3-mile portion of the Hudson Hope Road was rebuilt to Lynx Creek.
Also at the Charlie Lake end, a 10-mile section was rebuilt, widened, and straightened, in readiness for paving, to the top of the Cache Creek hill.
During the spring run-off considerable damage was done to our many miles of
farm roads, considerable scouring of the shoulders occurred, and a bad slide on
the Clayhurst Ferry Hill resulted in the rerouting of a mile of road. Lynx Creek
Bridge on the Hudson Hope Road was washed out, followed by the Farrell Creek
Bridge. Both Farrell and Lynx Creek Bridges were replaced with Bailey bridges.
During this same period the Cameron River and Siphon Creek Bridges were also
washed out.
Seven miles of new road were built to and across the Blueberry River due
north of Fort St. John, and the installation of an extra-wide Bailey bridge, to provide passage of large farm machinery, gave access to a large farming area which
had been practically isolated.
On the Pink Mountain Road, Mile 143 on the Alaska Highway, a recently
taken-over road and two bridges had to be relocated and the bridges rebuilt due to
the June flooding—one, a single-span trestle, across the upper reaches of the
Cameron River, and the other across the Halfway River, which was replaced with
200 feet of triple-single Bailey bridge and a steel ice-breaker.
The Bridge Engineer's office has designed permanent concrete and steel bridges
for the Lynx and Farrell Creeks, and the district was instructed to drive the H-piling
for the piers and abutments. This work was done during the winter, the last piles
being driven as the ice was breaking up with the run-off.
 C 102 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1965/66
Altogether 50 miles of road were gravelled or regravelled, 65 miles of crack-
filling was completed, seven bridges were built, and approximately 50 miles of roads
were either constructed or rebuilt.
The winter was severe, temperatures were below normal, although the snowfall was not excessive, and roads were kept in very good travelling condition.
Apart from the above, the Fort St. John bridge crew also assisted in extensive
concrete work in the Atlin (North) District, in preparation for the establishment
of a new yard-site at the south end of Dease Lake.
Omineca (East) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads. Weather
was dry and allowed for considerable improvement work, such as ditching and
gravelling on side roads.
Construction.—Included in the construction programme were reconstruction
of several miles of the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road and reconstruction of the
road used as main access to the Endako mine. Ten miles of road to serve Pinchi
Indian village were completed, and several sections on district secondary roads were
reconstructed.
Snow Removal.—Total snowfall was about normal, but most of it fell in
January, creating some problems with side roads. Much less than usual requirement for sanding was experienced.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on district bridges, with several small
bridges being replaced by district crews. Forest fires in August destroyed several
bridges in the Germansen area. Replacement of all but one was completed during
1965.
Omineca (West) District
Roads
Maintenance.—As a result of a high moisture content in soils from the previous fall, the spring break-up proved difficult, and considerable planking was
required on side roads to facilitate traffic. A further result was numerous pavement
failures. However, a dry summer followed, and a successful ditching programme
was conducted in various parts of the district.
Sixty-five miles of chemical brush control on the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway proved effective. A successful slope-seeding programme was undertaken
on two sections of this same highway.
An increased supply of oil for dust control was used in various parts of the
district.
Construction.—A total of 5.2 miles of North Francois Highway was ditched
and regravelled, and a 4-mile section of the Colleymount Road along Francois Lake
was also ditched and gravelled. Improvements to the Babine Lake Road north of
Burns Lake were carried out. An 11.2-mile section of forest access road between
Walcott and Quick was taken over by this Department and improved by district
forces.
A 6-mile extension of the Topley Landing Road to the Granisle ferry wharf
was constructed in a joint effort with the Granisle Mining Company, the Department
of Mines and Petroleum Resources, and the Department of Highways on a day-
labour basis.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 103
Snow Removal.—A much above average snowfall was experienced throughout
the district, especially during January and February. The accumulated depth by
mid-February was the deepest in memory. Snow-ploughing operations were extremely active, which increased snow-removal costs considerably. Sanding and
chemical requirements were once again about average.
Bridges
The Buck River Bridge (No. 16), a log-stringer span, and the Findlay Creek
Bridge (No. 121), consisting of a 50-foot glulam span and two approach spans on
concrete piers, were constructed by district forces. Necessary minor maintenance
was carried out to various bridges.
Ferries
The Francois Lake ferry, M.V. " Jacob Henkel," was forced to cease operations on January 19, 1966, due to ice conditions and remained out of service until
April 26, 1966. During this period the vessel received its four-year refit, and two
new bulkheads to facilitate heavier loading were installed.
Preliminary field studies were conducted to determine the feasibility of installing an air-bubbling system in Francois Lake to keep an ice-free channel for winter
operation.
Buildings
The exterior of the Southbank garage was completed, greatly improving its
appearance, and a hot-air heating system was also installed. A new roof over the
annex of the Houston garage was completed.
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance. — Other than the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway being
closed for a period of 14 hours due to a washout, little difficulty was experienced
throughout the year in maintaining the roads in the district.
Due to fine weather over a prolonged period, there was an increased demand
for the use of calcium chloride as a dust-layer in many communities.
The good weather also worked to our detriment in areas where gravels are
naturally lacking in fines; other materials were hauled to provide binder as required.
Construction.—Reconstruction to a 30-foot subgrade and a pit-run gravel base
was carried out on a total of 18.1 miles on Masset-Queen Charlotte City Road,
Masset Arterial Highway, Old Masset Road, and Sandspit-Alliford Bay Road.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was very high for the second year in a row, but
warm spells permitted settlement, and generally little difficulty was experienced in
maintaining the roads in a good condition. Salt was used effectively, both applied
directly and mixed with sand, as opposed to calcium chloride, with a resulting saving
in the cost of chemicals. A few sacks of calcium were kept for quick ice control on
city intersections and steep hills when rapid weather changes produced treacherous
conditions.
Bridges
Extensive bridge repair work was undertaken, and 348 lineal feet of deck
were renewed.
Two short bridges were replaced by large-diameter corrugated metal pipe.
Two bridges were shortened by fill. Two pile trestle bridges, with a total length
of 240 feet, were completely renewed on the Queen Charlotte Islands, and one
  —--i
REGIONAL REPORTS C 105
50-foot glulam bridge was constructed in the same area. Also, sufficient creosoted
timber was purchased to replace 300 lineal feet of pile trestle bridging on Moresby
Island.
Skeena (East) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the district. Considerable spring break-up was experienced, particularly in the
Smithers-Telkwa area. The summer months were relatively dry, and an extensive
programme of patching and crack-filling was carried out on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway. The warm weather created a considerable dust problem on
main gravel roads in the Smithers and Hazelton areas, which was controlled with
applications of oil and calcium chloride. Heavy rains in October produced flood
conditions, washing out the Hells Bells Bridge on Highway No. 16, approximately
50 miles west of Hazelton.
Construction. — Summer day-labour work consisted of reconstruction of a
2-mile section of the Kispiox Road and a 1.50-mile section of the Babine Lake
Road. Work was also started on the following: Moricetown Overhead—approach
fills and frontage road; John Brown Creek—realignment and bridge replacement
with twin multi-plate culverts; and Trout Creek—realignment and approach fills
to new structure.   These projects are scheduled for completion next summer.
Snow Removal.—Total snowfall was equivalent to that of last year. All roads
were kept open and in good condition throughout the winter.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on all bridges. The floor system in the
Smithers Bridge over the Bulkley River was renewed. This extensive work was
carried out by a midnight shift over a period of three weeks.
Ferries
The reaction ferry at Cedarvale provided normal service throughout the summer months. An aerial basket was installed with its own towers, to accommodate
travel during the winter months.
Buildings
Building construction in the district was fairly extensive. The following structures were erected: A two-bedroom house at Cedarvale, a three-bedroom house at
New Hazelton, a three-bay equipment-shed at Cedarvale, and a four-bay dry-storage
shed in New Hazelton.
Skeena (West) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Road restrictions were applied April 10, 1965, and rescinded
May 12, 1965. Break-up period was lengthy, but severe damage to roads or pavement did not result. A warm dry summer followed, leading to many dust-control
problems on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Terrace. The dry
season permitted considerable work on right-of-way landscaping and seeding. It
also permitted considerable pavement patching and repairs.
Day Labour.—The Kitimat Indian Village Road, 7.5 miles in length, was completed September 1, 1965. School buses carrying children to schools in Kitimat
went into operation at that time. Other day-labour work had to do with minor
improvement to side roads. Dedicated but unconstructed subdivision roads on the
east side of Lakelse Lake were built.
 C 106 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1965/66
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was heavy. Kitimat had 250 inches total snowfall.
The Northern Trans-Provincial Highway west of Terrace was blocked numerous
times by snowslides.   Snow-removal costs were extremely high.
Bridges
Dry-rot was discovered in the chord braces on five of the Howe-truss bridges.
The bridge crew spent most of the summer season replacing or splicing in new
braces. These bridges are 24 years old. Remainder of bridge crew time was spent
redecking several other smaller wooden bridges.
Ferries
The Copper and Usk reaction ferries on the Skeena River were in service until
early December. Rowboat service was supplied until the river froze over, then
pedestrian crossings on the ice were maintained.
South Peace River District
Roads
Maintenance.—For the second year in a row, spring came on very wet. Heavy
rains the first and last week in June and the first week in July washed out the John
Hart-Peace River Highway west of Chetwynd in many places. The Chetwynd-
Hudson Hope Road had two severe washouts, requiring bridge replacements, and
most side roads had culvert washouts.
The crack-filling programme increased again this year, requiring 30 tons of
filler to complete the job.   Paving-patching was routine.
Construction.—A 12-mile section of the John Hart-Peace River Highway
immediately west of Dawson Creek was improved with shoulder-widening, ditching,
and wooden culverts replaced in preparation for repaving by contract. Similar
treatment was given to a 1-mile extension east of Project No. 1358, west of
Chetwynd.
Snow Removal.—Record snowfalls were recorded, there being 100 inches
at Pouce Coupe and 210 inches at Mount Lemoray, and this was reflected in snow-
removal costs being very high.
Bridges
Routine maintenance of bridges fell behind as flooding conditions did much
damage to our bridges, and several new bridges were to be constructed.
Flood repairs were made to some 16 bridges, and deck and general repairs to
12 larger structures. The decking was completed on a new bridge at Bissette Creek,
and new structures were completed on the One Island Lake Road and on the John
Hart-Peace River Highway at Dawson Creek. Construction was started on new
bridges on the John Hart-Peace River Highway at Fished and Crassier Creeks as
well.
A Bailey bridge was removed from Maurice Creek, where it used to serve the
Hudson Hope ferry, and a similar type had to be erected at Hasler Creek on the
Pine River when an overloaded gravel truck fell through an older King-truss bridge.
Ferries
The Clayhurst ferry operated on its normal routine of shut-down in flood
season after break-up, when a 10-ton barge is used until a 50-ton barge can be
utilized until freeze-up. The tug and barges are then beached and an ice bridge is
used for the winter months.

 REPORT OF COMPTROLLER OF EXPENDITURE
C 137
REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF EXPENDITURE
Total gross expenditures for the fiscal year 1965/66 were in the amount of
$98,718,386.11, an increase of approximately $16,000,000 over the preceding
period. The graph and statements contained on the following pages reflect general
increases in all areas of operation; however, the major increase is attributable to the
capital construction programme, which constituted 66.52 per cent of the budget.
The increased volume of work handled by members of this branch bears a
distinct relationship to the increase in dollars expended, and as the work-load was
handled with no increase in staff, the efforts of those involved are commendable.
A. E. Rhodes,
Comptroller of Expenditure.
