I wish to record that all members of the Department, both at headquarters and
in the field, discharged their duties with dependability, efficiency, and loyalty.
Respectfully,
H. T. MIARD,
Deputy Minister.

 HIGHWAYS REPORT
REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, British Columbia,
July 30, 1968.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, British Columbia.
Sir,—Submitted herewith are district reports for the fiscal year 1967/68.
The total mileage of Provincial highways is 26,210, of which 3,689 miles are
classed as trunk highways, 1,690 miles as main highways, and 20,831 miles as other
highways. The total mileage of classified highways within municipalities is 1,050
and, of this, 504 miles are trunk highways, 274 miles are main highways, and 272
miles are other highways.
There were 371 miles of road constructed or reconstructed by day labour and,
of these, 17 miles are on trunk highways, 75 miles on main highways, and 279 miles
on other highways.   Improvements or minor betterments were made to 597 miles.
Expenditure on maintenance of roads, bridges, and ferries totalled $27,728,-
053. Included in this is the cost of snow removal, which amounted to $3,217,957,
there being 21,953 miles of road kept open.
There are 51 ferries operating under the supervision of the Department.
During the year they carried 1,926,893 vehicles and 4,768,497 passengers, including drivers.
The number of right-of-way settlements was 651 and the total cost was
$2,983,880.
There were 5,610 subdivisions handled during the calendar year 1967 and,
of these, 1,387 were adjacent to controlled-access highways. In the same period
645 permits were issued for entrances on controlled-access highways, 1,447 for
entrances on non-controlled-access highways, and 2,209 for other works on Crown
lands.
F. A. MacLean,
Assistant Deputy Minister.
 C 10 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1967/68
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER
Victoria, British Columbia,
July 30, 1968.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, British Columbia.
Sir,—Submitted herewith are reports from the Senior Bridge Engineer, the
Design and Planning Engineer, the Director of Construction, and the Senior Paving
Engineer.
There were 117 miles of road constructed or reconstructed by contract. Again,
over one-half of this mileage is on the Northern Trans-Provincial and North
Thompson Highways.
The total length of asphalt-concrete pavement laid was 173 miles and of
road-mix pavement or pulvimix was 405 miles. There was laid also 0.92 mile of
Portland cement concrete pavement, the same length as in the previous year.
There were 40 bridges completed during the year and another 18 were under
construction but not completed.
The total length of final location surveys completed was 244 miles and of
office design, including estimates of cost, was 182 miles.
Landslides and back-slope failures on construction of the North Thompson
Highway, the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between Prince George and
McBride, and the Kootenay-Columbia Highway between McMurdo and Golden
were caused, in most cases, by underground seepage. Installation of proper underground drainage provided the solution to these problems.
Soil surveys were conducted on a total of 250 miles of location routes.
D. D. Godfrey,
Chief Engineer.
 REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER C 11
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
During the past year more than 40 new bridges were completed and opened
for use by the travelling public. Another 18 bridges were in various stages of
construction and every expectation is that they will be finished by the end of the
current year. The total expenditure for the year by the Department on these two
groups of bridges was over $8 million.
Throughout the Province, bridge-building activity on the Department's highways was brisk. In the south, completion of a 420-foot steel-arch bridge with
800 feet of approach spans at Brilliant, the prestressed concrete bridge at Ootis-
chenia, and the curved steel-stringer bridge at Kinnaird, all on the Southern Trans-
Canada Highway, served to relieve the traffic bottleneck at the old Brilliant Suspension Bridge and the Kinnaird Junction. In the north, on the Stewart-Cassiar
Highway, construction proceeded on a 290-foot steel Stabbogen arch bridge across
the Bell-Irving River to the stage where, after the installation of a temporary timber
deck, traffic was able to use the bridge. Near Stewart, an existing timber trestle
on the Stewart-Hyder Road was eliminated when the new prestressed concrete
Stewart-Hyder Bridge No. 2 was completed. On the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway, Galloway Rapids Bridge near Prince Rupert and adjacent to pulp-mill
development, was completed and a new bridge to replace the one over the Bulkley
River, damaged by ice flows in 1966, was under construction near Smithers. East
of Prince George on the same highway, construction continued on two 600-foot
steel and concrete bridges, McBride Bridge over the Fraser River and West Twin
Creek Bridge, while Goat River Bridge was completed and opened to traffic. In
the east, construction was hastened and brought to completion on all bridges in
the Revelstoke-Mica Creek Highway in order to facilitate the Province's hydro
development programme in the Columbia River basin. Bridges over Bigmouth,
Downie, Holdich, and Mars Creeks, as well as a concrete-arch culvert of 25-foot
span and supporting some 80 feet of fill, were completed. In the west, Gorge
Bridge, a unique concrete-arch and voided-slab structure near Victoria and a joint
undertaking of the Province and the Municipalities of Saanich and Esquimalt, was
finished. On the West Coast Road of Vancouver Island over Sooke River another
steel Stabbogen arch bridge was opened to traffic and another bottleneck, caused
by a one-way-traffic restriction on the old timber Howe Truss, was eliminated. In
the central part of the Province, on the North Thompson or Yellowhead Highway,
construction of Kamloops East Bridge, a 600-foot steel and concrete structure over
the South Thompson River, was completed except for the concrete deck. On the
same highway, four small bridges near Blue River were completed while construction continued on Avola, Avola Overhead, Kamloops East Overhead, and Six Mile
Bridges. At Quesnel, construction got under way on another bridge in the long
history of bridges over the Fraser River. Steel piles were driven and concrete was
cast for the substructure of the bridge which will relieve the heavy traffic on the
single-lane timber bridge connecting Quesnel and West Quesnel.
Mention has been made of only some of the bridges constructed or under
construction during the past year. Particulars of each and every bridge worked
on last year are displayed in a list at the end of this report.
As to planning, designs and drawings were prepared for future bridges for
nearly all highways of the Province. Receiving particular attention were bridges
on the Northern Trans-Provincial and North Thompson Highways. Special mention
should be made of plans set in motion for a new crossing of the Fraser River at
Mission and over the North Arm at Mitchell Island. The task of planning and designing the Department's bridges was apportioned to both the Department's Bridge
Engineering office and various consulting engineering firms in the Province.

 REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION C 21
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS
The total mileage constructed by grading contracts was 117.1. The main
part of the construction programme still was concentrated on the Northern Trans-
Provincial and the North Thompson Highways, on which just over one-half of
the above total mileage was built.
On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway reconstruction was 92 per cent
completed on the Prince Rupert Arterial, a distance of 3.7 miles, and practically
completed on the Galloway Rapids Bridge approaches, a distance of 1.9 miles.
Reconstruction of a 31-mile section between Usk and Kitwanga is progressing
well, there now being completed 19.55 miles.
East of Prince George a 77-mile section of new construction between Willow
River and Crescent Spur is 87 per cent completed. The Tete Jaune Cache-Alberta
Border section is virtually completed, there being only 10 miles of surface to be
base-processed.
On the North Thompson Highway reconstruction is practically completed,
with a total of less than 3 miles remaining and minor detours at river crossings
where permanent bridges are under construction. Except for a total of 30 miles,
the entire road is now either paved or base-processed.
On the Revelstoke-Mica Dam section of the Big Bend Highway construction
is completed and 40 of the 85 miles are paved.
Due to construction of the Arrow Dam and the consequent flooding of the
Arrow Lakes it became necessary to relocate the Vernon-Slocan Highway between
Needles and Nakusp. Five contracts were awarded this year and excellent progress
has been made, there being constructed 21.1 miles of a total of 39.4 miles.
For the same reason the Arrowhead-Revelstoke Highway was relocated, but
the new location is on the west side of the Columbia River. It commences at
Shelter Bay and proceeds north for 30.6 miles to the Trans-Canada Highway
immediately west of Revelstoke;  4.2 miles have been constructed.
Work continued on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway and 4.4 miles were constructed. There are 82 miles yet to be built. A contract has been awarded for
grading 58 miles of this section and for clearing and grubbing the remaining 32
miles.
On the Taghum-Nelson section of the Kinnaird-Nelson Highway 2.55 miles
were constructed. This now leaves 2.3 miles to be completed on the project which,
including a 2.01-mile extension, is 6.37 miles in length.
Reconstruction is continuing on the 14.8-mile project from McMurdo to
Golden on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway.   This year 8 miles were built.
On the Garibaldi Highway the Britannia Beach-Squamish section, 6.6 miles
in length, was 51 per cent completed.
The turn-over of junior technicians has not been as serious as during the
past several years. However, we do continue to lose trained personnel to consulting engineers.
During the past fiscal year the Construction Branch lost, through death, two
senior technicians, one with 20 years' service and the other, 25 years.

A special type of oil is applied to the forms to prevent sticking. Finished product is
stockpiled for curing.
 C 28 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1967/68
REPORT OF THE SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
GENERAL
The final expenditure of $8,477,760 exceeded 1966 expenditure by about
half a million dollars.
Actual mileage paved with asphalt amounted to 158.8 miles of two-lane
highway, of which 46.16 miles were on the Trans-Canada Highway. In addition,
Paving Branch crews road-mixed approximately 89 miles of road and surface-
treated 56.6 miles. Approximately 0.9 mile of four-lane highway was paved with
portland cement concrete.
CONTRACT CRUSHING, BASE CONSTRUCTION, DRAINAGE,
AND PAVING
Although 18 projects were indicated as carried over from 1966/67, most of
the items were entered for clean-up or administrative reasons. It was only necessary to carry out significant contract field work on six of these projects with day
labour seal-coating performed under the provision of two others.
Twenty-three contracts were called and awarded this year and one contract
called but not yet awarded. One of these contracts was for British Columbia Hydro
and Power Authority at Mica Dam and Village and one for the Parks Branch of
the Department of Recreation and Conservation.
Eighteen projects, involving substantial field work and expenditure, will be
continued into the next fiscal year.
PULVIMIX AND SURFACE TREATMENT
In order to make the most effective use of available road-mixing and surface-
treatment equipment, three day-labour crews were organized this year under the
control of a senior technician. One crew using the Pettibone Wood mixer, acquired last year, was employed on road-mixing operations for the whole paving
season. The second crew was organized basically to carry out chip-sealing and
sand-sealing work but performed road-mixing work both before and after the
short surface-treatment season. The third crew was organized to assist various
district forces in joint road-mixing or surface-treatment operations, by supplying
equipment and skilled operators temporarily not required by the other two crews.
Usually, asphalt for the joint road-mix and surface-treatment work was also supplied from the pulvimixing allocation.
A number of test mixes were made with the Pettibone Wood mixer using
trial mixing grades of R.C. cutback and with S.S. 1 asphalt emulsion and results
are now under study.
PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENT
The balance of the 1.84-mile four-lane portland cement concrete pavement
at South-west Marine Drive, Vancouver, was completed.
  C 30
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
PERSONNEL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
The Paving Branch assisted in the conduct of University of British Columbia
Department of Extension Course on the " Design of Flexible Pavements " by assisting with laboratory equipment and facilities and by provision of two laboratory
demonstrators and a lecturer for the course, held in February, 1968.
As usual, annual proficiency examinations were held in March, 1968, following a series of short training courses held at regional centres.
Despite training programmes, a serious shortage of trained and competent
engineering aides is developing.
The Regional Paving Superintendent at Kamloops resigned in the spring.
His position was won in competition by a professional engineer from the Location
Branch. At the end of 1967, the Regional Paving Superintendent at Nelson was
transferred to Victoria, and a competition has been held to assist in the selection of
a replacement supervisor.
One engineer for the Branch completed Class 9 of the Executive Development
programme for Provincial Civil Servants and received a Diploma in Public Administration from the University of Victoria.
The Senior Paving Engineer attended the Annual Conference of the Canadian
Technical Asphalt Association at Halifax, Nova Scotia, in November, 1967.
SAFETY
During the course of the year, the Branch was consecutively awarded the
British Columbia Safety Council's silver, gold, and bronze-on-gold awards of merit
for operating a total of 535,101 consecutive man-hours without a lost-time accident.

REPORT OF THE DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER
Work continued on the highway inventory which is designed to co-ordinate
the Highway Department's planning activities. A photographic record of the
main highways in the Province was taken during the summer. The filmed records
are finding increasing use by the headquarters' staff in relation to studying traffic-
accident sites, traffic-control features, alignment problems, and access controls.
A course was arranged by the Branch for senior management concerning
systems analysis techniques using the computer.

 REPORT OF DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER C 45
Planning Section
During the past fiscal year the Planning Section obtained sufficient low-level
photography to produce high-order mapping on the Trans-Canada Highway between
Lynn Creek and the Second Narrows Bridge, and between the pumping-station west
of Kamloops and the Campbell Creek underpass; on the Southern Trans-Canada
Highway between Thrums and Slocan; on Vancouver Island at the junction of Lands
End Road and Highway No. 17; on Highway No. 97 at Dragon Hill (Quesnel) and
on the Peace River Hill; on the Lower Mainland at the Hudson Street and Knight
Street crossings of Fraser River and on the Lougheed Highway between Kingsway
and Barnet Highway.
High-level photography was obtained to produce low-order mapping between
Sayward and Beaver Cove on Vancouver Island.

Computer Section
Despite acquisition of a new computer (I.B.M. 360/40) and the consequent
need to rewrite every programme, 1967/68 was another successful year. The Cal-
comp 563 plotter, which plots ground cross-sections and final earthwork sections at
the rate of 2 inches per section, has proved to be a very useful tool since its installation at the beginning of the year.
During the year the earthwork design programmes were used to process 49
projects with a combined length of 264 miles, and two projects were on the D.T.M.
preliminary design programme. The pavement elevation programme was used in
connection with several interchange designs, and a number of traverses were run on
the Surmap 113 programme.
An earthwork programme for use by the Construction Branch is being written,
and it is hoped that this will be put into operation in time for the new construction
season.

MATERIALS TESTING BRANCH
E. E. Readshaw, Senior Materials Engineer
Soil Surveys
The Materials Testing Branch has continued to provide soils and foundation information on bridges and new highway location projects. Thirty-nine location routes
have been investigated this year, comprising about 250 miles of highway.   The
greatest amount of work has been done on projects on the Island Highway between
 C 50 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
Courtenay and Campbell River, Highway No. 7 between Agassiz and Haig, Highway
No. 97a between Armstrong and Sicamous, Highway No. 6 between Nelson and
Salmo, Highway No. 16 at Prince Rupert and Terrace, and Highway No. 97 between
McAlister and Alexandria.
Bridge Foundation Investigations
The number of bridge foundations investigated has diminished this year to 36
from a peak of 70 in 1966. The largest bridge project was the proposed Fraser
Street replacement, where 12 deep test-holes were put down through soft sands and
marine clays to the underlying dense till. In one case high artesian pressures were
encountered. The investigation is continuing. Two other small bridges over steep
rock gorges between Revelstoke and Shelter Bay were extremely costly and difficult
to drill because of the difficult access; special staging had to be constructed on the
walls of the canyon. Another proposed crossing at Tyee near Prince Rupert encountered deep deposits of very soft marine silt on which the usual methods of construction using surcharging could not be economically used. In this case a search
was made for firmer ground and the site was relocated.
Landslides and Stability Problems
Because of the extensive highway construction being carried out on the North
Thompson Highway, the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between Prince George
and McBride, the Mica Access Road, and the Golden to McMurdo Section of Highway No. 95 this year, many landslides and backslope failures were encountered.
Some of these along the North Thompson threatened to undermine the Trans-Mountain Pipeline, and remedial measures had to be instituted very quickly. In most of
these cases high ground-water flows were responsible for the instability, and drainage,
using 2-inch diameter perforated pipe drilled as much as 200 feet into the slide, had
to be installed. Two drill-rigs worked continuously on this type of problem. It is
always difficult to locate the source of underground seepage, but in the great majority
of cases preliminary investigation of the soil strata enabled the drains to be located
where they succeeded in encountering considerable flows.
In two cases where severe slope erosion caused by seepage water threatened to
undermine the highway backslope, special perforated plastic drains with a " built-
in " filter of porous plastic were installed. These drains arrive in rolls which are
easily spread out and laid by hand in the bottom of erosion gullies. Natural soil is
placed over them and the seepage water finds its way through the plastic filter without taking soil with it. This effectively prevents the erosion and the slope can be
reformed.
Another landslide of major proportions occurred on the Beatton River Road
where about 3,000,000 cubic yards of clay moved down the side of the valley cutting
the road and partially filling the river. This area is prone to this kind of slip, which
has been one of the chief geological agents forming the river valley. Remedial
measures were the formation of berms near the river, smoothing and flattening the
slope wherever possible, and the installation of horizontal drains. Slow movements
are still occuring and, because of the nature of the highly plastic clay, may continue
for some time. Subsequent studies show two mechanisms operating: (1) Water
pressure build-up in a buried aquifer of sand and gravel buried under clay debris;
and (2) a steady decrease in the strength of the clay with time. A strength reduction of 30 per cent was measured in the laboratory. It is hoped to reduce the water
pressure by the installation of horizontal drains, which in turn will slow down the
rate of movement and halt the annual reduction in clay strength.
 REPORT OF DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER C 51
Research
At Dome Creek on Highway No. 16, electro-osmosis was tried in an effort to
drain a large cut in silt. This process involves driving two metal tubes into the soil
and connecting the two to an electric generator. The electric current flowing between one tube, the anode, and the other, the cathode, drives the water in the soil
between them to the cathode, where it can be pumped out. The process is used
where the soil is too fine for normal gravity drainage to be effective. In this case,
Unsuspected seams of sand carried so much water that the electro-osmosis became
too expensive and it was found possible to drain the cut using horizontal drains.
The same process was used in another way at the Quesnel Bridge. Here the
steel H-piles could not be driven to their design elevation in the stiff clay. By connecting two adjacent piles to a welding-set generator, the current flowing between
the two piles forced water to the cathode pile. This lubricated the surface of the
pile and enabled it to be driven more easily. By this method the piles were driven
a further 9 feet. Piles were finally driven to full depth by pre-boring holes in the
stiff clays.
Inspection of Materials
Inspection of materials and the testing of new products has continued this year.
A great deal of effort has been exerted on the development of specifications and
methods of testing corrugated metal culvert. This is now being manufactured from
a continuous strip of metal plate in helical form and the formation of a proper overlapping joint is critical to the process. During manufacture the Departmental inspectors take samples of the seam, which are tested for shear strength.
New polyurethane coatings for restoring the surface of concrete bridge decks
are in the process of evaluation for their resistence to wear by tire chains and for
their resistance to the disbonding effects of freezing and thawing under traffic
stresses.
Concrete
The resurfacing of bridge decks with thin concrete overlays has continued this
year. Six bridges, including the Fraser River Bridge at Hope on the Trans-Canada
Highway, have been so treated. A total of 20 bridges has been resurfaced since the
inception of the programme and tests of the bond between the old and new concrete
show successful results after three years. The most recent development at the Rock
Creek Canyon was the introduction of large scarifier equipment to remove the deteriorated concrete. This machine removed up to 1 inch of old concrete over an
area of 4,000 square feet in five days, a rate 10 times as fast as previously achieved.
Pavement Design
Detailed investigation of pavement distress on parts of the Trans-Canada Highway have been carried out, which have shown that degradation of the aggregates in
the base course combined with severe frost conditions were the principal causes.
The investigations have been proceeding over the past four spring periods. Methods
of preventing this type of deterioration in future are the use of stabilized bases and
a more intensive study of available aggregates, using new methods of testing, which
will give a better prediction of their future behaviour on the road.

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 represents the Department on the British Columbia Safety Council, the St.
John Ambulance Highway First Aid Committee, the Capital Regional Planning
Board, the Canadian Good Roads Association Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada, and the Canadian Good Roads Association Committee on
 REPORT OF DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER C 53
Traffic Operations. The Senior Traffic Engineer represented the Department on a
committee formed of representatives of the larger municipalities on Vancouver
Island and in the Fraser Valley to prepare standards for school crossings. He also
represented the Department on a Technical Steering Committee for the Vancouver
Transportation Study.
Short traffic counts were taken with automatic equipment at the more than 800
locations where traffic is counted each year in the summer. Numerous manual and
automatic counts were taken in connection with special studies, including a traffic
study of the District of Terrace, carried out by a consulting engineering firm and a
study of the James Bay area by the City of Victoria. Count data from our permanent count stations indicated total traffic increased over 1966 totals by about 8 per
cent in the Northern Interior, 8 per cent in the Southern Interior, 11 per cent in the
Fraser Valley, and 9 per cent on Vancouver Island. Two new permanent count
stations were installed on major river crossings.
Traffic signals were designed and installed at 27 intersections throughout the
Province. Approximately 200 steel lighting luminaires were installed at railway
intersections. The creation of a small electrical design section several years ago,
consisting of an electrical engineer and an electrical draughtsman, is now serving the
Department, exceeding well in not only economy of design, but in service to the
Department.
Work on special electrical projects was undertaken, including snowshed illumination in Rogers Pass, relighting of Massey Tunnel, detection of stalled vehicles in
Massey Tunnel, and automatic detection of speeding violations.
Eight railway grade-crossings were signalized in co-operation with the Federal
Railway Transport Committee and the Canadian National Railway and Canadian
Pacific Railway. The Department paid for signals at four level crossings on the
Pacific Great Eastern Railway.
Work on the new edition of the Department's own Sign Manual was completed
and it was forwarded to the Queen's Printer for printing.
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.
Reports of fatal accidents which occurred in the 1967 calendar year were reviewed in detail and significant characteristics tabulated.
Numerous intersection problems were investigated during the year. Many
manual traffic counts were taken and designs for improvements at some 70 intersections were prepared. Improvements such as widening, channelization, signing,
and signal revisions were carried out at many of these intersections to give greater
capacity, to reduce hazards and delay, and to facilitate the flow of traffic.
Late in the year, a traffic study section was established to take over some of the
urban area study work, formerly done exclusively by consultants. Staffing this section are engineers who have undertaken post-graduate study and who were formerly
with the Department.

Design and Planning Engineer.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
REPORT OF THE CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
During the 1697/68 fiscal year a total of 651 right-of-way settlements was
completed by the Right-of-way Branch. One claim was submitted to arbitration
proceedings and four were in the preliminary steps leading to litigation.
The expenditure for right-of-way and other properties acquired by the Department totalled $2,983,880.24. This included holdings purchased on behalf of the
British Columbia Ferry Authority. Of this amount, $645,196.30 was expended for
right-of-way on the Trans-Canada Highway.
A total of 51 sales by public auction and 17 sales by public tender involving
lands surplus to highway requirements and buildings to be cleared for right-of-way
was dealt with by the Department. These sales resulted in a recovery of $171,085,
of which $153,084.20 was tendered through public auction.
Gross revenue from rentals amounted to $82,434.13. During the fiscal year a
total of 169 buildings and parcels of land was either under short-term lease or rental
agreement. A substantial number of these dwellings were located on the Upper
Levels Highway in North Vancouver, where advanced right-of-way acquisitions resulted in a total of 55 buildings being purchased and tenancy maintained prior to
their disposition. During the later part of the fiscal year programmed disposal of
these dwellings commenced.
The Roberts Bank land assembly project commenced at the fiscal year-end and
acquisition of properties was in process at that time.

 C 58 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
Fifty-one vessels were operated under the jurisdiction of the Department of
Highways during the 1967/68 fiscal year. Of these, 12 were Government-owned
major ferries, 10 were Government-owned cable ferries, 13 were reaction ferries,
and 7 were privately owned subsidized ferries. There were also 9 Government-
owned miscellaneous vessels.
TRAFFIC
The traffic for the year totalled 1,926,893 vehicles and 4,768,497 passengers.
This is a further decrease from the previous year, and again the light traffic on the
Castlegar ferries was the basic reason for the decrease.
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 possible.
NEW CONSTRUCTION AND ALTERATIONS
Comox District.—A tugboat was purchased for this area and is used in conjunction with a spare ferry barge to relieve traffic congestion on the Denman Island
route.   A new float was constructed at Alert Bay for the Sointula ferry.
MacKenzie District.—Major repairs were made to the landings at Woodfibre
and Darrell Bay.
Nelson District.—The Glade ferry was modified and an overhead cable installed to allow year-round operation of the ferry.
Revelstoke-Slocan District.—Tenders have been called for two new ferries
for the Arrow Lakes, one for Needles and the other at Shelter Bay.
GENERAL
Tenders have been called for two more ferries for coastal waters. These new
vessels are tentatively planned for the Quadra Island and Texada Island routes.

guard-rails, 71 signs and flashers, and 29 miscellaneous claims. One hundred and
forty miscellaneous claims were paid out.
In the area of litigation, 23 cases were concluded. In two cases, judgment was
given in our favour; in five, judgment was given against us; in two others, liability
was divided. In seven cases, out-of-Court settlement was attained. Another seven
cases brought against us were either dismissed or abandoned. Eighteen cases are
pending, of which we are the defendant in 13.
There were 11 meetings held of the Inter-Departmental Safety Committee and
four meetings of the Headquarters Saftey Committee.
British Columbia Safety Council awards were won by various districts and
crews. These consisted of 53 bronze, 51 silver, 21 gold, 9 bronze-on-gold, 7 silver-
on-gold, 3 awards of honour, and 1 million-man-hour award.
There is a keen interest in safety throughout the regions and districts, evident
in the spirit of competition for awards. Results of the efforts made over the years
are reflected in the reduced costs of injuries. The costs for 1962 were $310,000.
The costs for 1967 were $148,000.

 REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER C 81
REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
All highways were successfully maintained, with a total of 21,953 miles of
roads kept open throughout the year. The total expenditure for maintenance of
highways, bridges, and ferries was $27,728,053, including the cost of snow removal.
The winter was again generally mild with a lower-than-average snowfall in most
areas. Snow removal was therefore somewhat lighter than usual, but the use of sand
and chemicals was above average in many areas to combat severe icing conditions
caused by frequent light snowfalls and freezing rains. Shift systems were again employed effectively to keep all highways in safe travelling condition. The cost of snow
removal was $3,217,957, which is some 6 per cent lower than last year's expenditure.
Except for a few minor closures due to snowslides, all major pass routes were
kept open and in good condition during the winter. The Terrace to Prince Rupert
section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway experienced its worst snowstorm
in many years in January, when 42 inches of snow fell in 24 hours. This was followed by heavy rains, causing a number of snowslides, and resulted in the highway
being closed for a number of days.
Heavy rains in January caused flooding of side roads in the Lower Mainland
area and Vancouver Island, and resulted in the damage or loss of a number of small
bridges. During the same period severe flooding occurred in the Bella Coola Valley,
closing the road for 10 days and causing some damage to private property in the
Hagensborg area. Dyking and other protection work was undertaken immediately
and is being continued in conjunction with the Water Rights Branch.
In addition to normal maintenance, improvements in the way of reconstruction
and paving on main and minor road systems were carried out under day labour and
major maintenance projects. In excess of 350 miles of side roads were reconstructed,
and 130 miles paved. Dust-control measures were also expanded through an increased use of calcium chloride and bunker oil.
The landscaping programme to maintain and improve our highways continued
to expand. During the year 761 acres were seeded and 2,180 acres refertilized by
Department crews, and 1,222 acres seeded under contract. Districts also carried out
extensive brushing, mowing, and weed-spraying programmes on all major highways.
It is increasingly apparent that the development and maintenance of roadside
rest areas are becoming major items and will require increased attention. An economical concrete picnic table with terrazzo finish was designed by M. Pope and is
being produced by the Vernon District for use in rest areas. Some 24 of these tables
have already been set out and it is expected that more will be placed in the coming
year.
A number of projects were carried out in co-operation with the Department of
Indian Affairs. Road construction continued on the road to the Tache Indian Reserve at Stuart Lake, and on the west side of the Fraser River near Lytton. Material
was also purchased and construction started on a Bailey bridge over the Doig River
to the Doig Indian Reserve. An increasing amount of road construction is also being
carried out for the Lands Service on Crown subdivisions.
In addition to regular bridge maintenance, district forces rebuilt 56 bridges and
carried out major repairs to 12 bridges. Also, seven bridges were eliminated or replaced by culverts. The Taylor Creek Bridge on the Alberni-Tofino Highway was
destroyed by a forest fire on August 16th and was replaced by a 150-foot triple-triple
Bailey bridge. Regional bridge painting crews in Regions 1, 2, and 3 were in operation during the latter part of the summer. Results were satisfactory and may be
expected to increase as crews gain experience.
 C 82 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1967/68
Funds remained limited for the construction of new buildings; however, a
number of new equipment sheds, oil-houses, and salt-storage sheds were constructed,
and existing buildings were improved and maintained. New living-quarters were
installed at Kootenay Pass Camp to accommodate the maintenance crews on the
Salmo-Creston Highway. A new camp was also installed at Mile 54, north of Revelstoke, to facilitate maintenance of the Mica Access Road.
I am pleased to report that, in general, our maintenance activities were successful
in meeting the demands of our expanding road system, and in providing additional
services.
J. A. Dennison,
Senior Maintenance Engineer.

 C 84 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
REGIONAL REPORTS
REGION No.  1
(M. G. Elston, Regional Highway Engineer, North Vancouver)
Saanich, Nanaimo, Courtenay, North Vancouver, New Westminster, and
Chilliwack Highway Districts.
Saanich District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads throughout the district. Special attention was given to brushing and shouldering maintenance on the main highways and to drainage improvements in the residential areas.
Construction.—Grading of approach and frontage roads for the new Sooke
River Bridge was completed this year. The Happy Valley and Metchosin Roads were
reconstructed and up-graded in preparation for paving. Reconstruction was carried
out on 1.0 mile of Kangaroo Road, 0.7 mile of Telegraph Road, and 0.8 mile of
William Head Road.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Road-mix surfacing was applied to 2.3 miles of reconstructed grade on Telegraph Road and on short sections of other minor roads.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall in the district was generally light. However, icing
conditions were a constant problem and required 24-hour attention on the Trans-
Canada and Patricia Bay Highways.
Bridges
A new bridge, a steel arch with steel-stringer approach spans, with a total
length of 443 feet, over the Sooke River on the Sooke Highway was opened to traffic
in February. Three bridges were reconstructed by the district bridge crew. Major
repairs were carried out on the Harris Cove Bridge.
Buildings
Construction of the new foremen's office and assembly room at the Langford
yard was completed. A two-bay equipment shed was constructed at the new Jordan
River yard.
Nanaimo District
Roads
The main roads on the Gulf Islands each received a stretch of reconstruction
and paving, thus continuing the paved routes across each island.
Main feeder streets in the unorganized area surrounding Nanaimo were reconstructed and paved, with special attention given to providing width for yellow-edge
line walkways in these congested areas.
Major reconstruction was continued on the Alberni-Tofino Highway with a
total of 30 miles now being reconstructed. The truck lanes were extended on the
Alberni-Parksville Highway.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 85
Major shoulder widening and right-of-way sloping were carried out on the
Trans-Canada Highway between Nanaimo and Duncan.
Main roads were maintained as nearly ice-free as possible during the winter by
the use of salt.   A light winter snowfall was handled successfully.
Buildings
Equipment sheds were constructed on Pender, Galiano, Saturna, and Gabriola
Islands.   Additions were made to the equipment sheds on Saltspring Island.
Courtenay District
Roads
Heavier maintenance than normal was carried out during late winter and early
spring. Severe frost caused many side roads to fail. Combination of rapid snow
melt, together with heavy rain, caused major water problems. Very high tides, together with strong wind, caused seashore erosion and heavy rock was needed in many
places to protect roads.
During peak of water run-off the approaches to Quinsam River Bridge washed
out.   A detour was used, via private logging-road, for traffic to Gold River.
Carney Bridge on the Sayward Valley section of the Island Highway washed
out and a Bailey bridge was erected as a detour bridge.
Day Labour.—Port Hardy-Port McNeill-Beaver Cove: Road between Beaver
Cove and Port Hardy airport (31.5 miles) was completed and access to Port McNeil]
(1.5 miles) was completed.
Buttle Lake Road from Camp 8 to Buttle Lake Narrows (21 miles) was 75 per
cent up-graded.
Gold River townsite to pulp-mill was 75 per cent up-graded through very heavy
rock.
Hornby Island Ferry: Breakwater at both landings was extended using heavy
shot rock.
In the Courtenay area, Rees Bridge was completed and open to traffic. The
road to Forbidden Plateau was improved and the parking area gravelled. Numerous
side roads were oiled for dust prevention. Kentwood, Livingston, Warren, 1.5 miles
of Waveland, and Condensory Roads were paved. Shoulders of the Island Highway
north of Courtenay were widened in places.
In the Parksville area, many side roads were oiled for dust prevention and some
paving was done in the Dolphin Subdivision (Nanoose area). Shoulders of the
Island Highway were up-graded south of Parksville (Nanoose area), through Parksville, and through Bowser. A truck lane was constructed on the Alberni Hill between
Parksville and Alberni.
In the Campbell River area, miscellaneous oiling was carried out. Homewood
Road was paved and Ninth Avenue was repaved with hot-mix asphalt. Heavy rock
was hauled onto the bank of Campbell River to protect our bridge and an adjacent
motel.
On Quadra Island, up-grading of Heriot Bay Road to west end of Rebecca Spit
was completed. An access road to north end of the island was started. This goes
past Village Bay Lake and will help open up this recreational area. Access is required by residents of Surge Narrows area, who find it difficult to travel by water to
Heriot Bay during winter months.
 C 86 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1966/67
Bridges
Maintenance was carried out on all bridges throughout the area.
The following new bridges were constructed and opened to traffic: Rees (No.
138) on Dove Creek Road, Courtenay area; Quinsam (No. 456), a temporary
bridge over Buttle Lake Road; Carney (No. 160), a Bailey bridge installed as temporary measure, on Island Highway (Sayward Valley).
Ferries
Normal service was maintained between Comox and Powell River; Campbell
River and Quadra Island; Buckley Bay and Denman Island; Sointula, Alert Bay,
and Port McNeill.
A tug was purchased for use with our sectional barge. This was used on the
Denman Island-Buckley Bay run during peak traffic in the summer. It also serves
as substitute ferry when regular ferry is off for refit.
Buildings
At Courtenay a combination stockroom and crew assembly-room was 90 per
cent completed.   This building is 54 by 58 feet and of concrete-block construction.
At Port Hardy two family-size residential trailers were purchased for crew
living-quarters.
North Vancouver District
Roads
Maintenance.—Roads were maintained in good condition throughout the year.
Construction.—Clearing of 16th Avenue extension and the balance of Southwest Marine Drive was completed and a temporary road constructed on 16th Avenue
to provide additional access to the University of British Columbia.
The Squamish-Mons section of Highway No. 99 has been improved by adding
shoulders, improving sight distance, etc.
Many small day labour projects were completed, particularly in the Powell
River, Pender Harbour, and Gibsons areas.
Paving.—Six miles of road-mix pavement was laid in the Pender Harbour,
Powell River, and Gibsons areas.
Snow Removal.—A fairly open winter was experienced and all roads were kept
open.   Little difficulty was experienced by the travelling public.
Bridges
Adequate maintenance was carried out on all bridges.
Buildings
A one-bay equipment-shed was constructed on Lasqueti Island. A siiop and
four-bay equipment-shed was constructed at Squamish, together with an oil-shed.

system had been installed.
In Bedwell Bay area, Marine Drive was reconstructed and Senkler Road was
cleared and grubbed.
A concrete box-culvert was constructed in situ at No. 7 Road on the Westminster Highway. Also a concrete culvert extension and retaining wall were built
for the Paving Branch at Deer Lake on the Grandview Highway (Canada Way).
Road-mix this year consisted of 2 miles on the Rennie Road in the Pitt Polder
area and the first mile of paved surface on Barnston Island.
Seventeenth Avenue, connecting Albion Ferry to the Lougheed Highway, became an arterial highway, and was reconstructed in conjunction with a railroad
crossing signal.
Extensive gravelling was carried out on the many dykes in the Municipalities of
Pitt Meadows and Coquitlam. A new dyke was built on the Indian reserve south of
Red Bridge, adjacent to the Coquitlam River.
Maintenance.—The roads were maintained to the high standard needed for
heavy traffic volumes. Soil sterilant was applied around the guard-rails and signposts and along the gravel shoulders of the Trans-Canada Freeway No. 401, and the
Deas Tunnel Throughway No. 499. Grass-cutting was again one of the major maintenance items. Bunker B oil dust-layer was applied in early summer to most of the
gravel side roads.
The experimental planting programme was continued at Stormont Interchange.
The work was concentrated on the four test plots on the slopes of the approaches to
the under-pass. The landscaping at the Campbell River Interchange was completed
with a cover of bark mulch.
Snow Removal.—-The snowfall was relatively light and thus the crews were able
to maintain good winter road conditions.
Bridges
Normal maintenance and repairs were carried out on all bridges and ferry landings in the district.
Widening on the Serpentine Bridge on Highway No. 10 was completed.
Salmon River Bridge was reconstructed and Guichon Bridge was widened for
the Paving Branch.
Barnston Island ferry-landings were repaired extensively after a log jam caused
the damage. The protection piers of Pitt River were repaired, and the Fraser Street
swing-span centre protection pier was repaired after three accidents from the barge
traffic.
The superstructure of the Twigg Island Bridge was rebraced.
Ferries
The Barnston Island Ferry maintained its schedule throughout the year. The
Albion Ferry was closed for one week due to ice flows in the Fraser River.
Safety
Several safety awards were received during the year, and the vehicle accidents
decreased considerably.
  regional reports c 89
Chilliwack District
Roads
Construction.—A 0.45-mile section of the Sylvester Road was reconstructed.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Asphalt pavement was laid on 2.4 miles of the Chilliwack Lake Road, 1.1 miles of the Columbia Valley roads, 0.7 mile of Huntington
Townsite streets, 0.9 mile of the Yale Road at Flood Airport, 0.7 mile of Rockwell
Drive, 0.9 mile of the Morris Valley Road, and 1.5 miles of roads in the Dewdney
area.
Maintenance.—All roads were well maintained throughout the year. Mowers
operated continuously during the growing season, with particular attention being
given to Highway No. 401. Shoulders and gravel medians were sprayed with soil
sterilant. Brush-kill was used on Highway No. 401 and other main roads. Calcium
chloride, salt, and oil were used as a dust-layer on gravel roads.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was light. All roads were kept in good condition.
Crews operated in shifts during winter months and roads received good coverage.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained in good condition. Fences on steel bridges were
painted. Pile-trestle treated-timber bridges were constructed over Cultus Creek and
over Maria Slough on the Lougheed Highway.
Buildings
An equipment-shed was constructed at the Mission yard and a foremen's office
and assembly-room at the Agassiz yard. Chain-link fencing was erected around
both of these yards. All buildings were painted and a considerable amount of landscaping was done in all yards.
Bridge Maintenance District
Maintenance
All bridges and roads were well maintained. Considerable patching with epoxy
was done on the First Narrows Bridge. An effort was made to keep up with patching
on Second Narrows Bridge. Regular maintenance work was carried out for the
British Columbia Ferry Authority on docks and wharves. Buildings were constructed or renovated for Patrol, Paving, R.C.M.P. Buildings, and Department of
Transport, as well as repairs being made to all rented houses.
Regular grounds work was done at all major facilities, including weed-spraying
in all areas.
Repairs to damaged Government property through accidents, which included
bridge-rails, guard-rails, signs, light standards, median dividers, etc., were extensive.
Construction
A sidewalk was constructed on Cambridge Street Bridge. The intersection at
Sea Island Highway and No. 3 Road was revamped, including signals and island
alterations.

Creek, Coquitlam, and Englishman River Bridges, and is in progress on the Lions
Gate, Second Narrows, Oak Street, French Creek, and Little Qualicum Bridges. The
median barrier on the Port Mann Bridge is being painted.
Snow Removal
Snowfall was very light with only normal icing conditions. All bridges and
highways were kept open and in good condition.
REGION No. 2
(J. W. Nelson, Regional Highway Engineer, Kamloops)
Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Revelstoke, Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton,
Merritt, Lillooet, and Williams Lake Highway Districts
Kamloops District
Trunk and Main Highways
General maintenance was carried out on all trunk and main highways. Widening and up-grading of shoulders on main roads made a marked improvement.
Considerable widening and development was done at the 6-mile lookout at
Savona.
The north and south approaches to the Overlanders Bridge were landscaped.
Patching, maintenance of signs, clearing, brushing, and weed control were on a
continuing basis. The patching of the road north of Birch Island to Avola was very
extensive.
Snowfall was fairly light last winter. However, icing conditions were severe
and this resulted in the use of more sand and chemicals than usual. Roads were kept
in good condition and generally bare.
Spring road restrictions were necessary for a short time only on side roads.
Other Highways
Routine maintenance was carried out on all roads with some improvements to
country roads, especially school bus routes, as follows: Mission Flats (No. 198-1),
Shuswap (No. 233), Heffley-Louis Creek (No. 169), Rose Hill (No. 225), Auld-
girth (No. 104), Murtle Lake (No. 228), Barriere Main (No. 110), Barriere North
(No. Ill), Birch Island-Lost Creek (No. 116), Desdero (No. 153), Dunn Lake
(No. 155), Greenstone Mountain (No. 162), McLure Ferry (No. 208), Roche
Lake (No. 297), and Todd (No. 242).
Some of the above roads were brought up to grade above possible flood level.
Dyking
Dykes were built in Brocklehurst, Valleyview, Clearwater, Mission Flats, and
at Hooks Ranch.   This required in excess of 15,000 yards of material.
Bridges
All bridges were inspected and repairs effected as necessary.
The following bridges were completely reconstructed: Barriere Forks (No.
2365), 120-foot glulam girders; Beaton Road (No. 114), 20-foot log stringer;
Cold Creek (No. 141), 20-foot log stringer; Tranquille No. 2 (No. 2391), old
bridge removed and replaced with a Bailey bridge.
  C 92 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
The following bridges required extensive repairs: Barriere River (No. 257),
Chungking (No. 6269), Clearwater Station (No. 833), Corkscrew (No. 6266),
Criss Creek No. 2 (No. 6301), Kamloops East (No. 98), Raft River (No. 1080),
Savona (No. 704), Vavenby (No. 898), and Walhachin (No. 194).
Ferries
All necessary repairs and painting were done during the year.
New steel towers and a new cable were installed at Little Fort. A new deck
and new aprons were installed on the ferry.
New approach ramps were built at the Blackpool Ferry.
The ferryman's house at McLure was completed except for stucco on the exterior.
Day-labour Construction
Four miles of the Heffley-Louis Creek Road were reconstructed and 3 miles of
the Lac le Jeune Road were brought up to grade in preparation for paving.
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads in the Salmon Arm District. Weeds along sections of the Trans-Canada Highway right-of-way were again kept under control by the use of chemicals, and the programme of mowing along the roadsides greatly improved the beauty as well as the
safety factor. Dust was brought under control by the use of oil in the built-up areas
and in some isolated spots by calcium chloride. Many small slides as well as ditches
were cleaned by local forces and the use of the regional yumbo.
Construction.—Reconstruction, including widening, realignment, grade revision, and gravelling, was carried out on a total of 9.4 miles on the following roads:
Douglas Lake Road, 1.5 miles; Skimikin Road, 1.0 mile; Chase Bridge Road, 0.5
mile; Squilax-Turtle Valley Road, 1.0 mile; White Lake Road, 0.2 mile; V.L.A.
Road, 2.4 miles; Chase streets, 1.5 miles; Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road, 1.0 mile;
Sorrento streets, 0.3 mile.
Major improvements were made to 9.1 miles of sundry roads.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall over the district was average. Snow removal was
controlled effectively by using the two-shift system. Chemicals were used to control
icing conditions, particularly on paved roads.
Bridges
Cedar Hill Bridge No. 31 was entirely reconstructed, as was also the north approach to Chase Bridge No. 59. Extensive patching of the deck and replacement of
cross-ties was carried out on Pritchard Bridge No. 65. New piling was driven in the
south bent of Holmes Bridge No. 36.
Revelstoke District
Roads
Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout the year, with
considerable gravelling and regravelling being done on the side roads and subdivision
roads throughout the district. The heavy rain on the week-end of June 3 to 4, 1967,
caused considerable flood damage, including slides and wash-outs at Griffin Lake,
Three Valley, Summit Lake, on the Revelstoke-Arrowhead Highway, and shoulder
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 93
damage on the Trans-Canada Highway west of Revelstoke. The creek bed at Griffin
Lake was cleaned out, widened, and deepened to ease the threat of future wash-outs
in this area. A trench and dyke were constructed at Clanwilliam Creek to prevent
the water from running across the highway during spring run-offs.
Snowfall in most of the Revelstoke District was below average, but due to the
high frequency of light snowfalls combined with mild temperatures, more than the
average amount of salt and sand was used to combat the icing conditions. There
were minor slides at Summit Lake, on the Trans-Canada Highway, east of Revelstoke, and on the Mica Access Road, but no extensive road closures resulted.
Day Labour.—Work was continued on the Sicamous-Solsqua Road, including
filling and paving.   The entire 2.95 miles have now been completed.
On the Galena Pass Road, 1.74 miles of new grade was completed.
Bridges
All necessary repairs to bridges were carried out, but again as in previous years
the routine maintenance has fallen slightly behind, due to the bridge crew being extensively employed on ferry repairs and projects.
The Old Downie Creek Bridge was removed and a Bailey bridge was installed
in its place by the district bridge crew.
The Bailey bridge at Carnes Creek was also removed by district forces.
West Slough Bridge (No. 377) was replaced with a culvert.
Bridge No. 21 over North Fork Eagle River has been closed due to generally
poor condition.
Crazy Creek Bridge (No. 24) was washed out during the floods of the June 3rd
to 4th week-end and was not replaced.
Ferries
Considerable work was required on all ferry docks and landings due to the extreme high water, log bundles, and increased traffic volume, which was caused by the
many construction projects in the area.
Log cribbing and riprap were placed at Twelve Mile Ferry to protect the river
bank below the main cable tower.
The M. V. " Lardeau " was out of service for a period of 10 days in June due
to an engine overhaul. Normal service was maintained with a tug and barge during
this period.
Vernon District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the district. An effective brushing programme and chemical brushing-control projects were undertaken on a 28-mile section of Highway No. 97.
As a result of a slide on Highway No. 6 at Shuswap Hill, 25 miles east of
Vernon, in March of 1967, district crews removed 7,000 cubic yards of rock to
widen and improve the highway.
Plans were prepared by the district for a new intersection on Highway No. 97
south of Vernon at Kick-Willie Loop Road.
Some minor improvement to subdivision roads in the East Vernon area was
carried out by district forces.
The long hot summer increased demands for dust control in the more built-up
areas.
 C 94 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
The no-post guard-rail plant operated by the district again produced 6,000 feet
of guard-rail to supply the needs of nine maintenance districts in Region 2.
A unique concrete picnic table with terrazzo finish, designed by the Landscape
Supervisor, Mr. M. Pope, was put into production at this same plant, utilizing fibre-
glass moulds. The tables will soon be seen at many of the Department of Highways
roadside rest-stops throughout the Province.
Construction and Paving.—A 3.2-mile section of Highway No. 6 from Cherry-
ville east, a 3.65-mile section of the Lumby-Mabel Lake Road and a 2.03-mile
section of the Enderby-Mabel Lake Road were base-strengthened and repaved. A
1-mile section of the Commonage Road, south of Vernon, was reconstructed and
paved by district forces also. A 2-mile section of the Deep Creek Road off Highway
No. 97b was cleared, grubbed, and fenced by district forces.
Snow Removal.—Snow removal and sanding were carried out successfully.
The winter shift system proved effective for combating all winter problems.
Unusually warm weather and rain following a cold spell in late January caused
minor flooding in the Okanagan Landing area and Kalamalka Lake area south of
Vernon.
Winter maintenance in the Monashee Pass and Silver Star Park again was
handled successfully.   Snowfall in both areas exceeded 230 inches.
Bridges
Necessary repairs to bridges throughout the district were carried out on a routine basis. Several minor bridges in the Lumby area required channel improvement
following the June freshet. Considerable repairs to the Enderby Bridge (No. 36),
as well as the Mara Bridge (No. 78) over the Shuswap River at Mara Station, were
undertaken.
Buildings
Following the fire of March 16, 1967, which destroyed the stockroom and part
of the Vernon garage, a new stockroom, mechanical foreman's office, automotive
bay, and heavy-duty mechanical facilities were provided in the existing equipment-
shed in the Vernon yard. The badly damaged Vernon garage was repaired and
made functional on a limited basis. A completely new establishment for Vernon is
being considered by the Department of Public Works.
Kelowna District
Roads
Maintenance.—The increased trend towards suburban living requires additional maintenance on the local and commuter roads. To cope with this increased
traffic it was necessary to improve signing and general driving conditions on numerous local roads. The main highways were maintained in excellent condition with
stress being laid on signing, patching, and traffic safety.
Reconstruction.—An additional 5 miles of the Joe Rich Road (Kelowna to
Rock Creek) was reconstructed to standard ready for paving.
Reconstruction of 10.95 miles of side roads and fruit-haul roads was completed
ready for paving.
Last Mountain Road was constructed a distance of 6 miles.
General improvements were carried out on 4 miles of the Big White Road.
Paving.—A total of 16.9 miles of road-mix paving was completed by district
forces.   Sand-seal and priming was done on an additional 11.6 miles.
Snow Removal.—A below-normal snowfall was recorded, particularly after
January 1, 1968.
  C 96 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
Bridges
Slough Creek Bridge (No. 48) and Powers Creek Bridge (No. 41) were rebuilt
on new locations.
Mission Creek Bridge No. 2 (No. 34) was raised 1 foot to increase the safety
factor during flood season. Two spans were eliminated and new floor system installed.
All other bridges maintained in satisfactory condition.
Penticton District
Roads
Maintenance.—The usual general maintenance on highways and side roads
was carried out along with many minor improvements. On main highways emphasis
was placed on shoulder improvements and brushing for site-distance improvement.
Forty-one miles of orchard roads were treated with oil dust-layer to reduce dust
damage to fruit and berry crops.
Construction and Reconstruction.—A 2-mile section of truck lane on Highway
No. 3 from Princeton west was constructed and paved. Approaches to the five
bridges on the Hope-Princeton Highway, which were widened under contract, were
reconstructed and paved.
A short alignment revision in conjunction with the construction of a truck lane
was undertaken on the Whipsaw Hill on the Hope-Princeton Highway. This was
40 per cent completed.
In preparation for paving, 5.5 miles of the Green Mountain Road were reconstructed.
A pedestrian under-pass under Highway No. 97 at Skaha Lake near Penticton
was constructed. This materially increased the safety for pedestrians crossing from
the camp-site area to the beach.
Paving.—Last year 10.1 miles of road-mix pavement were laid. This included
4 miles of the Green Mountain Road which leads to the Apex Ski Resort, and 3 miles
of the Black Sage Road at Oliver which serves a large orchard and vineyard development, and various short sections of side and orchard roads. In addition, 6 miles of
pavement on side roads were rejuvenated by sand-sealing.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was below normal in all areas. However, the mild
weather with near freezing temperatures and frequent rains tended to cause slippery
driving conditions on many occasions. The double-shift system was instituted in
most areas. This coverage and extensive sanding and use of road chemicals provided good driving conditions almost without exception. Some minor traffic delays
were experienced on the Hope-Princeton Highway but these were minimal considering the unusual temperature and precipitation conditions.
Bridges
Bridge No. 33, located 4 miles north of Oliver on Highway No. 97, was completely reconstructed. The three north spans, totalling some 60 feet, were eliminated
by the construction of an approach fill, and the new timber structure was redesigned
for heavier loads.
Five other timber bridges on side roads were reconstructed.
Routine bridge maintenance was carried out as required.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 97
Merritt District
Roads
Maintenance.—District road maintenance was carried out on all roads with
more attention to brushing, ditching, and extension of culverts for better maintenance
and service.
Extensive spraying of simazine was carried out in the Fraser Canyon section of
the Trans-Canada Highway and this is showing good results.
Snowfall was average throughout the district. On January 12, 1968, the Fraser
Canyon was closed for snowslide removal and was reopened at 8 p.m., January 14,
1968.
Outram Creek on the Hope Slide gave us much trouble and on the week-end of
January 20th to 21st the road was again washed out and it was then decided to build
a bridge rather than endeavour to maintain culverts.
Construction.—Reconstruction with new alignment and grade revision was
completed on Lytton South Access, Mile 8.0 to Mile 9.2 on the Mamette Lake Road,
0.75 mile on Spences Bridge-Merritt Highway No. 8, and 1.0 mile on Douglas Lake
Road.
Bridges
A new log-stringer bridge was constructed over Outram Creek on the Hope-
Princeton section of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway, and Skagit Bridge No. 1
on the Silver Skagit Road was reconstructed.
Two timber cattle under-passes were constructed on the Douglas Lake Road.
New deck systems were constructed on four timber structures and major repairs
were made to the railing on the Hope Bridge.
Ferries
New ramps and method of handling were installed on Lytton Ferry.
The haul-back cable was replaced on the Boston Bar—North Bend Ferry.
The Lytton Ferry was shut down from May 24 to May 28 and June 1 to July 5,
1967, because high-water conditions prevented the safe operation of the ferry and
from January 26 to February 7, 1968, due to excessive ice floes.
Lillooet District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance kept all district roads open and in good
shape throughout the year. Fewer rock slides occurred, and less road closures were
needed due to preventive maintenance in the trouble areas.
Construction and Surfacing.—Four miles of the Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway
were pulvimixed, and 1.5 miles of blade-mix were laid elsewhere in the district. District forces were used in constructing 6 miles of Indian Department road on the west
bank of the Fraser River north of Lytton. Three miles of subdivision roads were
completed in the Green Lake area for the Lands Service.
Reconstruction.—District forces, along with the regional scraper crew, reconstructed 4.5 miles of the Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway.
Considerable rebuilding was done on sections of the Green Lake Road, newly
crushed 3-inch material proving excellent in this country.   Fairly heavy rock work
 C 98 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1967/68
and widening were carried out on a section of the Loon Lake Road. Reconstruction
was also carried out on minor roads, such as the Mound, Big Bar, and Gun Lake
Roads.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was average throughout the district. Icing conditions remained longer than usual.
Bridges
Routine maintenance was carried out on district bridges. A new bridge was
constructed over a mud-slide area on the Lillooet-Pioneer Road. Practically complete renewal of the South Fork Bridge was carried out, this being a Howe Truss
bridge with over-all length of 323 feet.
Ferries
Big Bar Reaction Ferry continued in operation. A new ferry-house was constructed in this relatively isolated area.
Williams Lake District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was again carried out on 1,600 of the
district's 2,200 miles of road. A light spring run-off permitted a programme of
ditching, gravelling, and culvert installation to be commenced at an early date. The
Horsefly Road, which was used continually by over 60 logging-trucks, presented a
difficult surface problem.
In January, heavy rains caused major flooding and slides in the Bella Coola
Valley, which closed the Chilcotin-Bella Coola Highway for one week. Repair of
the resulting damage plus flood control riprap on the Bella Coola River is continuing
into the 1968/69 fiscal year.
Construction.—The regional scraper crew reconstructed a further 1.3 miles of
the Canim Lake Road and commenced work on the Horsefly Road by completing a
1 mile diversion at Gravel Creek.
A total of 57.3 miles of road throughout the district were either reconstructed
or had major improvements carried out by district crews.
Design of further relocation of the Canim Lake and Horsefly Roads has been
greatly speeded by assistance from the Location Branch.
Paving.—With the assistance of the Paving Branch, 5.5 miles of new road-mix
were laid on various roads in the 100 Mile House, Lac la Hache, and Williams Lake
areas.
Bridges
Routine maintenance was carried out as required on all district bridges. Two
new bridges, Morrison (No. 613) and Holding (No. 614), were built on the Morrison Meadow Road near Anahim Lake. Kleena Kleene (No. 459) and Meldrum
(No. 411) were reconstructed. The Likely Bridge received a new deck system.
Ice flows on the Chilcotin River knocked out piers on the Alexis Creek Bridge
and the new glulam structure at Hanceville. Major repairs were required with the
Alexis Creek Bridge still restricted. The Bella Coola River flooding again knocked
out the Canoe Crossing Bridge. This has not been replaced, and traffic is using a
privately owned bridge on an alternative route.

REGION No. 3
(D. F. Martin, Regional Highway Engineer, Nelson)
Nelson, Rossland, Grand Forks, New Denver, Cranbrook, Fernie, and
Golden Highway Districts
Nelson District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on district roads throughout the year. Several side roads were improved by ditching and gravelling. The
programme of weed-spraying, shoulder sterilization, and slope seeding was continued
on the main highways. Queen's Bay Settlement, Shoreacres Flats, and Bealby Roads
were up-graded by flush-coating.   The Riondel Road was sand-sealed.
Construction.—Reconstruction prior to paving was carried out on Johnstone
and Blewett Roads. A section of third lane was added to the Salmo-Creston Highway. In the Lister area, 8.5 miles were reconstructed to gravel grade. Knox and
Heddle Roads were road-mixed.
Snow Removal.—New camp buildings were erected at Kootenay Pass. Snowfall during the winter was lighter than normal and slides were minor. Normal snow
removal and sanding operations were carried out on all district roads throughout the
winter.
Bridges
General maintenance was carried out on district bridges. Four bridges were
reconstructed and two were replaced by culvert and fill.
Ferries
The Kootenay Lake ferries were operated on an hourly schedule throughout
the summer months. The Glade Ferry was removed during high water, and passenger service was provided by a river boat run by the Department. The ferry was
widened and the guide system changed to overhead during this period. The West
Creston Ferry was removed from service for the winter months.
Rossland District
Roads
Although extreme high water was experienced in the Columbia River, only
minor erosion damage resulted. Temporary fill and some sand-bag protection enabled the continued flow of traffic along the two main roads affected. Some minor
roads were inundated for a short period. The high water was followed by an extremely dry summer which brought mixed blessings. Shoulders of paved roads and
gravel surfaces were more difficult and costly to maintain, but day-labour construction and surfacing projects reaped the benefit. Many worthwhile road improvements
were effected in the district during the year; especially beneficial was the reconstruction of a 1.04-mile section of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway at Birchbank,
and a 0.3-mile section of reconstruction on the Rossland Arterial. A tremendous
increase of traffic resulted when the access road to the Champion Lakes recreational
area received a road-mix surface. Altogether the district laid 14.43 miles of road-
mix pavement, applied 4.5 miles of sand-seal, and stabilized 6.0 miles of shoulder
by the inverted prime method. Generally winter maintenance provided satisfactory
travelling conditions, but some minor tie-ups did result when the weather contrived
to create simultaneously difficult conditions throughout the district.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C  101
Bridges
Bridge maintenance was of a minor nature, mostly cleaning, painting, and deck
repair. Soundings were taken downstream from the Columbia River Bridge at Kinnaird after high water had receded. A 72-foot framed trestle bridge on the Ross-
land-Cascade Road was replaced by a 60-inch-diameter corrugated metal pipe and
fill. The new scale-house for the Department of Commercial Transport was completed at Kinnaird.
Ferries
High water forced No. 1 Castlegar Ferry out of operation on June 22nd and
service was not restored until July 4th. No. 2 ferry was forced out of service on
June 16th and was not put back into service when the water went down, except as
relief, since the new Brilliant Bridge over the Kootenay River was opened to traffic
in the latter part of June, thus reducing ferry traffic considerably. No. 2 ferry was
subsequently transferred to the New Denver District. Other than being down occasionally for minor repairs, the No. 1 ferry operated efficiently throughout the remainder of the year.
Buildings and Yards
Only minor repairs were undertaken during the year. The interior of the
Rossland garage was painted. Four storage-bays in Rossland had electrical wiring
installed and the service to the carpenter shop was renewed. Two small sheds were
erected at winter sand piles for the protection of the loaders. Additional property
was acquired adjacent to the Kinnaird garage which will provide adequate storage-
room for the forseeable future.
Grand Forks District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the year. Extensive brushing and burning was started on the Southern Trans-Canada
Highway between Christina Lake and the Paulson areas, and soil sterilant was applied around the guard-rails from Osoyoos to Paulson. The Southern Trans-Canada
Highway was widened at Paulson and Lafferty to allow trucks to check their equipment and to give motorists an opportunity to chain-up in the winter months. The
regional gradall was used to clean ditches in the Paulson area.
Shoulders were regravelled from Grand Forks to Paulson. A total of 2,600
feet of no-post concrete guard-rail was installed east of Christina Lake.
Widening and improvements were carried out on Beaver Creek Road and extensive brushing was done on Jewel Lake Road and Gilpin Road.
Construction.—Reconstruction was continued on Kettle River Main Road.
Five miles of road are now completed and 5.5 miles are presently under reconstruction.
Widening and realignment were carried out on Boundary Creek Road, Brown
Creek Road, and Christina Lake West Road.
On Rock Creek-Kelowna Road the placing of %-inch crushed gravel was
continued over a 15.65-mile section between Carmi and Kallis Creek.
Paving.—On Boundary Creek Road, 2.2 miles of road-mix paving were completed, and 5.0 miles on Kettle River Main Road.
In the Kettle Valley, Christina Lake, and Grand Forks areas, 11.49 miles of
seal coating were completed.
 C 102
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
In the Grand Forks and Christina Lake areas, 2.01 miles of penetration seal
paving were completed.
Snow Removal.—All roads were kept open and well sanded. Snowfall was
slightly below last year's level, except in the Rock Creek-Osoyoos area where it was
greater. One small snowslide was experienced on the Blueberry-Paulson section of
the Southern Trans-Canada Highway, however, there was no delay in traffic.
Bridges
General maintenance was performed on all bridges throughout the district.
Major repairs were done on the following bridges: Carson (No. 79), trussing
for camber, portal, and lateral braces renewed; Riverside Seed Farms (No. 176),
renewed cross-ties and decking; First Street (No. 81), replaced lower chord (bridge
now under jurisdiction of the City of Grand Forks); Midway (No. 140), replaced
lower chord (bridge now under jurisdiction of the Village of Midway); Greenwood
Tunnel (No. 182), lining regrouted to try to prevent water dripping through walls
of tunnel (work supervised by Headquarters Materials Branch); and Rock Creek
Canyon (No. 185), asphalt removed from bridge deck prior to the concrete being
scarified to remove approximately 1 inch of concrete to prepare the bridge deck for
resurfacing.
Buildings
Exteriors of all buildings at Grand Forks, Greenwood, and Bridesville were
painted and a shed was constructed at the Great Northern Pit to house one of our
loaders during winter maintenance. Plumbing was completed at the Beaverdell
equipment-shed.
New Denver District
Roads
The beginning of a programme to pave feeder and back roads in the Slocan
Valley was made this year with 5 miles being completed from Appledale to Winlaw.
On Highway No. 6, the unpaved gap was shortened to less than 2 miles between
Aylwin and Enterprise Creeks. With the paving contract south of Kaslo 50 per cent
completed, only 2 miles remain gravelled from Marblehead (Duncan Dam Access)
to the south boundary on Kootenay Lake at Coffee Creek.
All rock work was completed on Coffee Creek Bluffs and all that remains is the
construction of a 100-foot concrete binwall section to restore the shoulder where an
old dry wall went out during construction.
Flood damage to a culvert at Milford Creek and an incomplete major pipe arch
installation at Schroeder Creek was repaired.
A joint day-labour project with British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority
to link the Inonoaklin Valley Road with the new Highway No. 6 under construction
was 70 per cent completed.
A major piece of the Nakusp North Road was completed with the installation
of 264 feet of 126-inch-diameter culvert under a 75-foot fill.
Bridges
A new deck was laid on Vallican and Winlaw Bridges and many other bridge
repairs made. Erection of major culverts at Slocan, Schroeder, and on the Nakusp
North Road was handled by the bridge crew.

inside.
Powder magazine doors were improved as instructed by the Explosives
Inspector.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance.-—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads.
Pavement patching was above normal on older surfaces. Weeds and brush on all
trunk and main highways were controlled by chemical spray. Oil or calcium chloride
was used as a dust-layer on gravelled roads near residences.
Construction.—Reconstruction and paving were carried out on 6.4 miles of
the Wardner-Fort Steele Road and on 0.62 mile of streets on the outskirts of Cranbrook. Also reconstructed were 1.25 miles of the Black Bear Road and 0.2 mile
of streets in Yahk. Gravel was laid and the surface paved on 1.1 miles of streets
in the Cranbrook area.
A third coat of asphalt was laid on 4.29 miles of streets in the Cranbrook area,
2.29 miles of streets in the Kimberley area, 0.99 mile of streets in Moyie, and 1.01
miles of streets in Wardner. In the previous year these streets were surfaced with a
double flush-coat pavement.
The shoulders on 5.6 miles of Highways Nos. 3 and 95 between Yahk and
Kingsgate were widened to 10 feet.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was below average this past winter. Due to mild
temperatures an increased amount of sand and chemicals were used. All roads were
kept ploughed and sanded as necessary and main roads were made bare within hours.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained as required. The widening of Mark Creek Bridge
(No. 185) at Kimberley was started. Repairs were made to the substructure at St.
Mary River Bridge (No. 17) atWycliffe.

constructed around the yard.
The exterior of the oil-house at Kimberley was painted.
New fuel pumps were purchased for the yard at Yahk.
Fernie District
Roads
Maintenance.—Spring run-off created a few bank erosion problems on the Elk
River and Big Sand Creek requiring rock riprap protection work and dyke
strengthening.
 C  104 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
There was normal road damage due to spring break-up on minor roads, but extensive damage due to frost on the Southern Trans-Canada Highway near Fernie and
east of Natal, which required greater than usual pavement repairs.
Extensive brush-control by labour and chemicals was carried out on trunk highways and on minor roads.
A programme of roadside development was continued with initial efforts to control weeds and brush within the right-of-way of trunk highways, and road shoulders,
signs, and guard fences receiving major attention on the travelled portion.
Construction.—Project No. 1359, Fernie-Hosmer, Section 2, was completed
and the entire 6 miles of the project were paved by the regional pulvimix crew.
One mile of Tie Lake Road was relocated, constructed to profile grade, and
surfaced with %-inch crushed gravel.
Total mileage of all paving by road-mix type was 12.68, including the 6 miles
of Project No. 1359.
Snow Removal.—Less-than-normal snowfall with milder-than-usual temperatures kept costs below average. Careful control of chemical (salt) use reduced cost
and improved service considerably.
Bridges
Two bridges were replaced by culverts and fill, and one bridge was rebuilt.
Minor repairs and painting to sundry bridges was done by district crews.
Buildings
One small shed to house winter equipment and supplies was constructed at
Sparwood.   One 3,000-cubic-yard capacity sand-storage shed was built at Fernie.

Hansard and Isle Pierre Ferries operated normally. Traffic was increased on
the Hansard Ferry over previous years.
Pouce Coupe District
Roads
Maintenance.—For the second year in a row the district has experienced
weather conducive to road repairing, construction, and gravelling. Pavement-patching costs were higher than normal due to repairing a 5-mile section of the Hart Highway west of Progress where many failures had occurred.
Crack-filling is now considered routine with the use of 40 tons of crack-filler
during the year.
Construction.—The third gravel-cement stabilization project along the Dawson
Creek-Clayhurst Road was completed over an 8.4-mile section. Pulvimix was
placed along 19.7 miles of the Chetwynd-Hudson Hope Highway to complete the
hard surfacing throughout the highway. Approximately 6 miles of farm and settlement roads in the Lone Prairie area were taken over and reconstructed. There were
2.1 miles of access road constructed and gravelled to the South Moberly Provincial
Camp-site.

The new maintenance camp at the south end of Dease Lake is now fully operative, maintaining the roads in and around Telegraph Creek, the Stikine Ferry, and
over 100 miles of the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway.
Vanderhoof District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads in the district.
A continuing programme of ditching and high grading on several side roads eliminated many maintenance problems.
Construction.—Five miles of the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road were reconstructed. The district widened 12.8 miles of Highway No. 16 preparatory to repaying. Nine miles of the Tache Indian Reserve Road were constructed, which now
permits vehicular access to the reserve.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was average for the year, which enabled the district
to keep all roads open with very few problems.
Bridges
Two small bridges were constructed in the district, and the Germansen Bridge
was reconstructed on concrete piers and abutments. Routine maintenance was
carried out on several other bridges in the district.

Road.
Road-mixed asphalt pavement was laid on 2.6 miles of the North Francois
Road.
The Houston Bridge approaches on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
were 80 per cent completed.
Snow Removal.—Average snowfall. A freezing rain followed by a prolonged
cold spell gave ice problems on Highway No. 16 and major side roads.
Bridges
New bridges constructed were as follows:, Houston Bailey Bridge (No. 35),
a 100-foot span with a 20-foot trestle approach; Tatalrose (No. 13), a 13-foot
stringer span; and Tenas (No. 143), a 40-foot log-stringer span.
New cross-ties and a new deck were installed on Quick Bridge (No. 97).
Ferries
The air-bubble system installed around the landings of the Francois Lake
Ferry to prevent the formation of ice proved to be effective. The ferry ceased
operations for the winter on February 20, 1968, due to ice conditions in the centre
channel.
Buildings and Yards
A fence was erected around the Houston yard.
Smithers District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the district. A programme of brush-spraying was carried out on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway in the Hazelton area.
Construction.—Summer day-labour work consisted of the construction of the
Smithers By-pass (3.31 miles), shoulder-widening in preparation to paving approximately 30 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, construction of approaches to Trout Creek Bridge (0.5 mile), and the reconstruction of 1.1 miles
of the Hazelton High Level Road.
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 district bridges, with several small

 REGIONAL REPORTS C  109
Ferries
The reaction ferry at Cedarvale provided normal service throughout the
summer months. An aerial basket provided passenger-only service during the
winter.
Terrace District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads in the
district. The restrictive period was longer than normal due to continuing cool
weather.
Riprap placement was completed on Highway No. 25 to repair storm damage
of October, 1966.
Riprap was also placed on Highway No. 16 West to repair some of the more
seriously eroded areas.
An extensive slashing programme on Highway No. 16 East and Highway
No. 25 was carried out.

Ferries
The Usk Ferry was taken out of service November 28, 1967. A cable car
for foot passengers was used until May 7th, when the ferry was put back in service.
The Copper Ferry was taken out of service November 9, 1967, and put back
in service May 14, 1968.
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance.—An increase in mining activity in the Alice Arm area was seen
during 1967, which required above normal maintenance of the Kitsault and Shore
Roads. Increased mine construction activity at Stewart required constant grading
and dust control on the arterial highway. The Stewart-Watson Lake Road required
a heavy commitment of men and equipment to maintain a reasonable road-bed.
The Queen Charlotte Islands received a severe storm on December 1, 1967, which
resulted in the erosion of some 3 miles of road adjacent to the sea plus a large
amount of blown-down trees across the road.    Necessary maintenance, such as
 C 110 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1967/68
slashing the right-of-way, patching and widening sharp corners, was carried out
on the substandard section of Highway No. 16 between Galloway Rapids and Tyee
in order to accommodate the ever-increasing amount of traffic.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Queen Charlotte City-Masset Road was
continued, with a total of 15.3 miles north of Port Clements being cleared and
stripped; a section of a 0.4-mile section was rebuilt to a 30-foot subgrade with sand
and gravel. Repairs were done to the same road after the storm in December. The
Wiggins Road was extended to the- Tlell River to allow access for fishermen. Sufficient rock was quarried, crushed, and stockpiled to resurface the Cannery Road at
Port Edward.
The Shore Road was widened and gravelled from Alice Arm to the dock.
The Stewart-Watson Lake Road from the International Border north to the
dock was widened, realigned, and gravelled.
Snow Removal.—The snowfall in the Stewart area was far less than normal,
which resulted in only one short closure of the Salmon River Road (access to Gran-
duc Mine) due to snow slides.
The snowfall on the Queen Charlotte Islands was about three times as much
as normal and a heavy work load for the maintenance crew, which was unfamiliar
with snow and ice removal from paved roads.
A normal snowfall and winter conditions were experienced at Prince Rupert,
with no road closures due to snow conditions.
Bridges
Minor repairs were carried out to many bridges in the district.
The deck on the Bear River No. 2 Bridge was rebuilt. Three bridges on the
Big Missouri Mine Road were reconstructed, using log stringers, for the Department
of Mines and Petroleum Resources.
The outer float on the Salt Lake wharf was reconstructed, using creosoted
timber and styrofoam floats. This float withstood 70-miles-per-hour winds and
high waves during its first winter of operation.
Five pile-trestle bridges (total length of 151 feet) were rebuilt on the Queen
Charlotte Islands using creosoted treated timber with laminated decks.

 REPORT OF COMPTROLLER OF EXPENDITURE
C 141
REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF EXPENDITURE
The following pages reflect Departmental expenditures for the fiscal year
1967/68. The volume of spending on roads, bridges, ferries, etc., for repairs,
maintenance, and reconstruction continued at a high level, and the total gross expenditure of $111,102,938.13 is only slightly less than the all-time high reported in
the previous fiscal year.
With the redistribution of electoral districts in 1966, it was necessary to make
a complete change of the accounting system in order to properly record expenditures
by such districts, and this change in system was instituted in April, 1967. The
accounting staff, both at headquarters and in the field offices, are to be commended
for the efficient manner in which this change was carried out.
On March 18, 1968, this branch and the Department as a whole was saddened
by the death of Mr. J. D. McKinnell, Assistant Comptroller of Expenditure, and a
veteran of 35 years of public service.
A. E. Rhodes,
Comptroller of Expenditure.
