  PUBLIC WORKS REPORT
REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER
Douglas Building,
Victoria, B.C., November 1st, 1954.
Hon.P.A.Gaglardi,
Minister of Public Works, Victoria, B.C.
SIR?—A report on the activities of the Department for the fiscal year 1953-54 is
herewith submitted for your consideration.
A great amount of work was undertaken by the Department during the year with
excellent results.
Contracts were let for 71.89 miles of highway, the principal work undertaken comprising 31.88 miles on the Trans-Canada Highway, 5.47 miles on the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway, 12.09 miles on the Cariboo Highway, and 6.84 miles on the
Okanagan Highway. Other main roads throughout the Province that were constructed
or reconstructed comprised 15.61 miles.        S
Twenty-three bridge projects were completed during this fiscal year, including two
on the Trans-Canada Highway, namely, Malakwa Bridge and Three Valley Bridge.
A surfacing programme was carried out, comprising some 218.92 miles of bituminous
plant mix, 64.39 miles of processed base only, and 70.60 miles of non-skid seal-coats.
Six gravel-crushing plants were operated, crushing a total of 633,979 tons of
aggregate. | ||r |* §       |
Extensive location and survey work were undertaken, comprising 223.4 miles of
final location, 35.9 miles of preliminary surveys, and 15 miles of reconnaissance, making
a total of 274.3 miles of survey.
The Architects Branch of the Department carried out extensive work, completing
twenty-six building contracts and fifteen mechanical installations. Amongst the more
important of these projects were the Laundry and Stores Building, Provincial Mental
Hospital, Essondale; temporary hutments to house an additional 480 prisoners at
Oakalla Prison Farm; addition to the Administration Building and Women's Building
at Oakalla Prison Farm; and alterations and renovations to the Provincial Government
Office Building at 411 Dunsmuir Street, Vancouver.
During the year, 22,176 miles of highways and 10,343 miles of trails have been
maintained, and this mileage of highways comprises 3,330 miles of trunk highways,
2,754 miles of main highways, and 16,092 miles of other roads. In addition to this
total, 620.47 miles are classified as arterial or secondary, details of which are shown in
statement attached to this Report. Some 14,702 miles of highway were kept clear of
snow, involving 450,200 snow-plough miles, at an average cost of $141.68 per mile
kept open. j£
A new auxiliary vessel of the same size as the M.V. "Anscomb | has been put on
the Kootenay Lake crossing to facilitate the volume of traffic.
A new steel ferry was built and commissioned for service at Denman Island, and
also a new 70-foot steel ferry was built for service at Nicks Island.
The total number of vehicles carried during the past year on the following ferries
were as follows: Agassiz-Rosedale (Fraser River), 80,301; Castlegar (Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway), 510,068; Kelowna (Okanagan Highway), 356,346; Nelson (over
West Arm of Kootenay Lake), 457,612; Ladner-Woodwards (Fraser River), 342,279.
9
 M 10 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1953-54
The amount of subdivisions in unorganized areas in the Province is still i
which also increases the number of permits issued by the Department for private mT8"*
and connection with public utilities.   The number of letters handled by the Den?**8
comprised 93,521. mm
Existing roads were improved, maintained, and widened by the various <T '
officials, and also necessary drainage, clearing, and renewal of culverts were success^
carried out throughout the Province.    When necessary, farmers were allowed to w k
out tax arrears by contributing to road work, a practice which has proved very satisfacto
in the past and has been of assistance to the Department where temporary labour
scarce.   Great credit is due to our Divisional Engineers, District Engineers, and District
Superintendents for their continuous perseverance and attention to the maintenance of
local roads and main highways under their jurisdiction, notwithstanding when, in some
cases, the elements have been adverse, and they have had to be on duty practical
twenty-four hours a day in the interest of safety of the travelling public, and the same
credit is due to other members of the Department in the field.
| Detailed reports from the various sections of the Department and statistical information are attached to the Report to qualify any of the particular references made above.
In conclusion, I may say that a very satisfactory year's work has been accomplished
and I wish to record the efficiency, dependability, and loyalty of our staff.
E. S. Jones,
Deputy Minister.
REPORT OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEER
During the fiscal year 1953-54 twenty-three bridge projects were completed, two
of which—namely, Malakwa Bridge and Three Valley Bridge—are on the Trans-Canada
Highway. A ferry-landing was also constructed at Westbank on Okanagan Lake and
marine ways were constructed for the Francois Lake Ferry.
Also during the fiscal year, construction was commenced on a further eleven major
bridges and two ferry-landings, namely, Park Bridge, Mount Hunter Bridge, Savona
Overhead Bridge, Colquitz River Bridge, Salmon River Bridge, Ryan Bridge, Ryan
Overhead Bridge, Aldridge Bridge, Millstone Bridge, Sproat Falls Bridge, Jacob Creek
Bridge, and Swartz Bay and Fulford Harbour ferry-landings.
Details of the bridge projects completed during the year are listed elsewhere in the
Report; from this list it will be seen that thirteen of the bridges were of steel and concrete
construction, five were of precast concrete-beam sections on creosoted-timber substructures, and five were of creosoted timber throughout.
One of the largest and most outstanding projects completed during the year was
the Parsnip River Bridge on the John Hart Highway. It was not until subsequent to
the award of the contract that there was a bridge of any kind at this point, and one of
the first items of work was the construction of a temporary timber trestle bridge to serve
transportation needs until the completion of the permanent steel and concrete structure.
The opening of the permanent bridge to traffic early in the fiscal year marked a c |
mination in the construction of this important highway. , ^
In continuation of the policy of replacing minor bridges with culverts ana
wherever possible, 253 bridges were so replaced, representing 2V& miles of bridge
eliminated. 'i&
Bridge elimination by means of culverts and fills was carried out for the grea
part by the district crews; district bridge crews also constructed three permanent d ^
as well as various timber bridges, to which further reference is made in the
reports.
M
 REPORT OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECT M 11
The Bridge Branch was assigned the work of preparing plans and specifications for
the proposed Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge on behalf of the British Columbia Toll Highways
and Bridges Authority. It was necessary to employ additional staff in order to handle
this large and important project in addition to the normal Bridge programme. At the
end of the fiscal year the work was approximately 80 per cent complete.   |
Structural steel was in more plentiful supply than it has been for many years, while
the situation in regard to timber was normal but deliveries slow in some instances.
I     C. K. Saunders,
Bridge Engineer.

MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS
Good progress was made in keeping maintenance of buildings up to a desirable
standard throughout the Province, and, in addition to this, the policy of renovation and
modernization has been continued satisfactorily.
The system of regular annual or semi-annual checks and detailed records of
maintenance to buildings now in force has proven to be of great value and is expected
to materially aid in their economical and efficient upkeep.

inconvenience to winter traffic.   The increased expenditure was attributable t   h
snowfall over the entire Province, our snowfall records indicating an increase of tt^
cent over the previous winter.   Radio-telephone communications were established ' T
Fraser Canyon, units being installed at Merritt and Boston Bar and portable sets
in the foremen's vehicles at Merritt, Lytton, and Yale. The Department is now
installed
equipped
with radio-telephone communications on the John Hart Highway, in the Revelstoke -
and Fraser Canyon and Hope-Princeton Highways.  Winter maintenance was extendd
to include the Monashee section of the Vernon-Slocan Highway and the Cascad
Rossland section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.
Routine maintenance continued to improve, with more effective equipment bein
acquired to perform the various maintenance items such as asphalt patching, ditching
shouldering, and brush and weed control. There is a definite need for certain additional
equipment, such as power-graders, screening plants, asphalt-distributers, rollers and
mowers, in order to provide a higher standard of maintenance. The large mileage of roads
maintained by this Department, together with the improved standard of maintenance
necessitated by increasing traffic volumes, indicates that the maintenance appropriations
should be increased by at least 50 per cent to provide this service.
Throughout the northern part of the Province many of the local market, farm, ranch
and settler roads, which were more or less adequate for their purpose, have become
impassable during the long sustained periods of wet weather which has prevailed for
several years, and have depreciated in varying degrees, owing to the hauling of heavy
loads of logs and lumber, for which these roads were not designed. It is not practical or
advisable to enforce load restrictions over long periods even though conditions warrant
same. Many small sawmill operators cannot afford to stock-pile lumber for any length
of time; consequently, they tend to haul during periods when the roads will not support
such loads, with the result that the roads become impassable at a time when it is not
feasible or economical to effect repairs. The district maintenance allotments will not
provide the standard of maintenance or repairs necessary, not to mention the essential
improvements to provide all-weather roads to accommodate logging traffic.
It is considered that the cost to improve these sundry roads for the above-mentioned
purpose is a direct charge to the forest industry. It is therefore submitted that
a substantial special fund be set up by the Forest Service, similar to that set up for
mining-roads, so that funds may be released to our District Engineers, as required, for
the reconstruction of any existing public, farm, ranch, or settler road which is utilized by
the forest industries. This fund would not apply to the construction of Forest Service
roads or private logging-roads.
The engineering districts last year administered and expended $5,829,216.01 on
day-labour projects. These funds produced the following results: 65 miles of new construction (mining and sundry roads); 101 miles of standard reconstruction (main and
branch roads); 198 miles of standard reconstruction (market, farm, and orchard roads);
and, in addition to this, approximately 477 miles of roads were realigned, widened,
gravelled, or generally improved. The districts also completed 85 miles of asphaltic
paving and eliminated over 200 obsolete bridges with culverts and fills. The above-
mentioned work provides for the full use of Department equipment and personnel, and
also provides a great deal of employment for local equipment and labour. To augment
contract work, it is essential that day-labour work be accelerated in order to reconstruc
the large mileage of our roads which is already inadequate for present traffic.

Maintenance Engineer.

REPORT OF THE LOCATION ENGINEER
Highway location surveys undertaken during the 1953-54 fiscal year are detail d \
the accompanying report, showing 223.4 miles of finalized location, 35.9 miles oi   "*
Uminary surveys, and 15 miles of reconnaissance. § pre"
Legal surveys undertaken in conjunction with the Surveyor-General's Departm
on the Hope-Princeton Highway, John Hart Highway, and Cariboo Road, together with
miscellaneous legal surveys by Departmental and private land surveyors, are not included
in the detailed report.    The total cost of all surveys was $452,084.83, of whi h
$107,196.65 was expended on Trans-Canada Highway locations.
Surveys of two mountain sections on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway route
were undertaken, namely, from Cascade to Castlegar and Salmo to Creston. Both of
these surveys require another season's field work to complete. Bulldozer trails suitable
for four-wheel-drive equipment were undertaken to facilitate our work, in place of the
older pack-horse set-up, allowing surveys to be continued until snow conditions precluded
further field work.
The situation in respect to technical personnel eased considerably during the season
and in the sub-profession categories no difficulty was experienced in filling requirements!

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
During this period there were forty-nine ferries operated under the jurisdiction 01
this Department. These comprised eight Government-owned major ferries, nine Government-owned power-cable ferries, sixteen Government-owned reaction ferries, seven
Government-owned miscellaneous ferries, and nine privately owned subsidized femes.
All Government-owned ferries were inspected and reports were submitted. Rec°ffl*
mended repairs were carried out. All ferries operated very efficiently and a minim
of time was lost due to breakdowns and overhauls. ^
Traffic is increasing at an alarming rate at many sites.   During the 1953-54
year a total of 2,251,020 vehicles were carried by the combined ferry system,   ^
represents an increase of 188,548 vehicles over the preceding year.   This increas g
 REPORT OF THE CONSTRUCTION ENGINEER M 19
volume of traffic appears to be most acute in the Nelson-Creston District, particularly at
the Kootenay Lake crossing. To ease this situation an auxiliary vessel of the same size
as the M.V. 1 Anscomb " is now under construction. This vessel will be completed
and in service before the busy season of 1954. One of the most amazing records of
traffic is that of the North Bend Aerial Ferry. Although this ferry carries only one
vehicle per crossing, it carried a total of 20,188 vehicles during the 1953-54 fiscal year.
Major repairs and renewals to Government-owned ferries were as follows:—
Cariboo District.—The Macalister Ferry was rebuilt with steel pontoons and other
equipment salvaged from the discontinued Fort Fraser Ferry.
Comox District.—A new steel vehicle-ferry was built and commissioned for service
at Denman Island. This ferry is 64 feet long and has a capacity of seven vehicles and
thirty-seven passengers. Service at this site was previously provided by a privately owned
subsidized ferry. The new ferry is Government owned and operated. This is the first
ferry in British Columbia to use the new " Harbormaster " outboard power for propulsion.
Delta District.—The Ladner Ferry was taken out of the water at the Pacific Drydock
on December 2nd. All damaged propellors were replaced, and underwater repairs and
painting carried out. Service at this site was augmented by the introduction of half-
hourly trips between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m.
|||  Kaslo-Slocan District.—A complete new deck was built on the Arrow Park Ferry,
and a new engine installed.
Lillooet District.—The wood pontoons of the High Bar Ferry were reconditioned,
and a considerable amount of planking was renewed. New steel pontoons were built
for the Big Bar Ferry.p
Nelson-Creston District.—A new 70-foot steel ferry with new machinery was built
for service at Nicks Island. New steel loading-ramps were built and installed at the
Kootenay Lake ferry-landings. A new steel ferry of the same dimensions as the M.V.
"Anscomb " is now being built for auxiliary service at Kootenay Lake.      J|
Kamloops District.—A complete new ferry with steel pontoons was built for service
at McLure. ft
Omineca District.—A new ferry-landing was built at Northbank, and new marine
ways were built for the Francois Lake Ferry. After four years of service the Francois
Lake Ferry was taken out of the water for inspection. At that time the vessel was completely overhauled.
Revelstoke District.—A new landing was built on the west side of the Columbia
River for the Twenty-four Mile Ferry.
South Okanagan District.—A new ferry-landing was built on the west side of
Okanagan Lake for the Kelowna ferries. After four years of service the M.V. "Lloyd
Jones" was taken out of the water for inspection. At that time the vessel was completely
overhauled.
Saanich District.—New ferry-landings were built at Swartz Bay and Fulford Harbour for the Saltspring Island Ferry.    | -

REPORT OF THE CONSTRUCTION ENGINEER
Trans-Canada Highway.—Thirty-one and nine-tenths miles were constructed during
the year. The by-pass at Savona was completed, together with the rugged section east
toward Cherry Creek. f
Further projects were opened up east and west of Salmon Arm, and a long section
east of Spences Bridge was nearing completion, the latter eliminating several wooden

bridges on bad alignment. Construction was in progress on a very difficult section in the
Fraser Canyon immediately east of Jackass Mountain. %
On Vancouver Island the first section out of Victoria to Parsons Bridge was com-
oleted and a start made on the second section toward Goldstream, these sections being
constructed mostly through solid rock and in close proximity to houses. Also 4 miles
south of Nanaimo were under construction.
Cariboo Highway.—Twelve miles constructed between 126 Mile and the 150 Mile
House and work commenced between the 150 Mile House and Williams Lake, the latter
being the final section between Cache Creek and Williams Lake.
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.—The highway between Fernie and Elko along
the old Great Northern grade was completed and brought up to standard. Other sections
were completed into Greenwood and on Waterman Hill.
John Hart Highway.—The project was completed between Commotion Creek and
Wabi Hill, approximately 9 miles. J|i
Other Highways.—Hopkins Landing-Port Mellon project was completed, and work
was in progress between Maillardville and Coquitlam, and also between Pender Harbour
and Agamemnon Bay.
Construction Quantities.—During the year these totals were as follows: Roadway
excavation—solid rock, 1,364,683 cubic yards, and other materials, 3,822,973 cubic
yards; culvert pipe, 33,812 lineal feet; concrete for retaining-walls and drainage structures, 8,568 cubic yards; and gravel, 844,391 tons.

REPORT OF THE TRAFFIC ENGINEER
TRAFFIC-LINE PAINTING
Using two modern high-capacity striping units, with two five-man crews, a total
of 1,340 miles of highway were newly painted or repainted. This required the purchase
of 16,030 gallons of paint and 44.2 tons of glass bead. The total cost of striping per
mile of highway was $60.60. This is a further decrease of $5 per mile from last year's
cost. The decrease was the result of increased efficiency of the painting crews and
lower material costs. These lower material costs indicate the value of the assistance
given by the Materials Engineer in the testing of paint and bead stocks. While the cost
per mile has been reduced again this year, the quality and durability of the traffic lines
put down has improved. These three items of cost, quality, and durability continue to
compare favourably with work done by other Provincial and State highway organizations.
Quotations have been requested on the purchase of another high-capacity striping
unit and one small striping unit. These units will be required to handle the increasing
mileage of highway pavement. #
HIGHWAY SIGNS
The sign-shop, under the Traffic Engineer's direction, maintained the high quality
of the Province's standard highway signs throughout the year.
The shop staff, consisting of a foreman and four to eight men, was engaged in this
work. The three Traffic Branch sign-maintenance trucks were in the field for five months
erecting and maintaining signs throughout the Province. This field work was in addition
to the sign-maintenance work regularly done by the district maintenance crews.
A total of 13,000 standard signs were produced and shipped from the shop. This
is a 41-per-cent increase over the previous year. In addition, 500 special signs were
produced for use on the highways.
The work of administering directional signs for tourist resorts and auto courts was
continued. With the increase of standard highway-sign work, it was decided to leave
the erection and maintaining of the resort signs to the individual concerned.
TRAFFIC SIGNALS
A number of accident studies and traffic-volume counts were made at highway intersections in investigating the need for signals or other traffic-control devices. The Department installed, or assisted to install, the signalization of fifteen intersections throughout
the Province. Most notable is the installation of seven signals on Kingsway in Burnaby,
timed to give progressive movement at 29 miles per hour over Zx/i miles of highway.
In addition to the stop-and-go signals, four flashing-type signals were installed.
TRUCK WEIGH-SCALES
To facilitate the enforcement of truck-weight regulations, one more permanent
scale was installed this year, at Kaleden Junction. The total number of permanent
Departmental scales is now eleven. Further to the two pairs of portable loadometer
scales now in use, the Department has purchased an additional four pairs for placement
in areas not covered by the permanent scales.
During the year 32,479 loaded vehicles were weighed on the two types of scales.
Of this number, 178 were summonsed to court for infractions of load limits. W
TRAFFIC SURVEY
During the summer months a survey of traffic volumes on all main roads throughout
the Province was made.   Two traffic-enumerators, each equipped with a 1-ton panel
 M 24 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1953-54
truck and sixteen automatic traffic-counters, carried out this programme.   In dd* S
seasonal counts were taken in the Fraser Valley as far as Hope and on Vancouver 111
j§     From the data obtained from these counts and also ferry traffic records
was made up.    This comprehensive list of traffic movements and their coinn^f*
volumes was of great value in planning the expenditure of maintenance funds Ch
improvements, and future highway expansion. '   g Wa?
INTERSECTION DESIGN AND CHANNELIZATION
The design and installation of channelization, and in some cases signals or flashe
was completed on eight major intersections throughout the Province. Four of the
installations were on Lower Vancouver Island; the other four were scattered throughout
the Mainland. There are on hand, at the end of this year, completed plans for sixteen
other intersections. Of these, five are on the Island and eleven on the Mainland. To
further eliminate the hazard at intersections and augment the channelization of traffic
movements, street-lighting was replaced with modern luminaires at one intersection and
newly installed at two other intersections. This work has been done in conjunction with
the Electric Energy Branch. Intersection study and design has become a major aspect
of the work by the Traffic Branch.
BURRARD PENINSULA ORIGIN-DESTINATION SURVEY I
In co-operation with the Vancouver City Engineer and the Director of the Lower
Mainland Regional Planning Board, an investigation was carried out on the origins and
destinations of vehicles entering and leaving the Burrard Peninsula. This was done to
assist in the large-scale planning of Fraser River crossings and a high-class highway or
% freeway " into down-town Vancouver. This is a heretofore unused source of information for the planning of major and costly highway facilities in the Province.

REPORT OF THE MATERIALS ENGINEER
The scope of the Testing Branch operations was considerably extended during the
year 1953-54. The necessity for economical drilling was recognized, and a drilling outfit
was set up, using an electric Ka-Mo drill mounted on a Dodge power wagon. This rig
has been in almost continual operation all year round, drilling at bridge-sites, land-slides,
borrow-pits, gravel-pits, soil surveys, etc.
In addition, a house trailer was fitted up for a field soil-testing laboratory and
operated very successfully on construction projects. Other field operations included
a concrete-testing laboratory and a gravel-testing laboratory, and a party which investigated soil surveys of new roads, slides, etc.
Operations in the Victoria laboratory increased generally, and additional paint-
testing was carried out for the Purchasing Commission and Forest Service. The paint-
testing included 162 tests on thirty samples submitted by sixteen paint companies for
interior and exterior building paints and enamels. Sixty tests on twelve samples from
four manufacturers were tested for tree-marking paint for the Forest Service. Two
hundred and two tests on nineteen samples submitted by seven companies were completed
on vehicle paints, and 249 tests on seventeen traffic-line paint samples from twelve manufacturers were also carried out. Bid samples of glass beads for reflectorizing traffic paint
were again carried out this year.
Concrete-testing in Victoria included curing and testing to failure, in compression,
713 concrete test specimens sent in from the field. All concrete aggregates for concrete
of any importance, on bridges, retaining-walls, culverts, etc., were tested for suitability,
and in most cases a design concrete mix was computed and a trial batch mixed in the
laboratory and tested to ensure satisfaction. This work entailed 409 tests on 165 samples
of concrete aggregates for suitability, and 73 design mixes entailing a further 205 tests.
Road-base and surfacing gravel was carefully inspected for all important roads in
the Province in 1953-54, and 140 samples of pit-run road-base and surfacing gravels
were given 290 tests, to ensure suitability for the purpose.
Three hundred and seventy soil tests were carried out also, in connection with soil
surveys, road construction, etc.
Department of Public Works personnel who have responsibilities in connection with
highway and bridge construction and maintenance work are becoming more familiar with
the various ways the Testing Branch can assist them in their inspection and construction
problems. §| ||

REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER-SURVEYOR
j OF BOILERS AND MACHINERY
In accordance with the provisions of the | Boiler and Pressure-vessel Act," I have
the honour to submit the fifty-second annual report of the operation of the Steam Boilers
and Machinery Inspection Department for the fiscal year ended March 31st, 1954.
THE ACT
During our operations this year we have felt the need of an interim certificate which,
subject to certain provisions, would permit an owner to proceed with the operation of his
plant in an emergency pending the visit of an Inspector.
REGULATIONS
A completely revised set of Regulations Governing the Design, Construction, and
Inspection of Boilers, Pressure-vessels, and Appurtenances in British Columbia were
passed by Order in Council No. 265 on February 11th, 1954.
These regulations embrace Canadian Regulations CSA-B 51, which are in common
use throughout Canada, and, therefore, our standards are now in unison with other jurisdictions and are abreast of all modern developments.
CANADIAN STANDARDS ASSOCIATION
The annual meeting of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Committee was heldI ia
Vancouver on May 4th, 5th, and 6th, when the Canadian Boiler Code CSA"B 51
reviewed and suggested amendments were discussed. The Chief Inspector of eacn
ince is a member of this Committee, which also includes representatives of manutac
and insurance companies.

REPORT OF INSURANCE AND SAFETY BRANCH
From the standpoint of self-insuring the fleet of Government cars and trucks, our
experience for the fiscal year ended has shown conclusively the very great monetary
advantage which accrued as a result of the Government deciding upon such a step.
the basis of our previous insuring experience, the cost to insure the Government cars
fling reserves for outstanding and unsettled claims.   This represents a saving in excess
and trucks, etc., for the 1953-54 fiscal year with private companies would have extf
$105,000.   Compared to this figure, our expenditure for claims totalled $12,044,jnc

$93,000.

Nine Safety Committee meetings were held during the year.
In addition to the foregoing which deals exclusively with motor-vehicle accidents,
this Branch dealt with a substantial number of other types of claims, such as those against
the Government arising out of accidents on ferries, bridges, grader windrows, blasting,
etc. Also, a good number of claims against other persons or firms were successfully
concluded.
Safety promotional work was carried on in the various electoral districts, where
films emphasizing the need of safety were shown and a talk given stating the aims and
ideals of the Government on the question of safety.
Considerable time and effort were put in on safety on the job, as distinct from automotive safety work. There was a substantial decrease in Workmen's Compensation Board
claims paid as compared with the previous year.   The three-year comparison is shown
hereunder:

previous year.
 DISTRICT REPORTS M 39
It is of interest to note that the claims paid on behalf of Public Works employees
represented a time-loss of 10,022 man-days. This averages a daily cost of $10.65,
including medical aid. As in the past, we have worked closely and co-operatively with
the Board, for which appreciation has been expressed. I
The interest in safety and the excellent co-operation throughout all departments,
and in particular Public Works, has been most gratifying, and we wish to express our
appreciation.

Some extension of the Tronsden Trail in Kyuquot was made, and assistance was
given to the Village of Zeballos in the control of the Zeballos River.
Comox District
Islands.—The barge was condemned and sold in the spring of 1953, and there has
been no travelling maintenance crew on the Islands since. With the use of local crews,
roads were maintained in a satisfactory condition.
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on the rest of the roads in the
district. Thousands of yards of screened and pit-run gravel was hauled, and numerous
old drainage problems repaired.
Construction.—The construction of the Island Highway from Oyster River to Campbell River, a distance of 11.75 miles, was 80 per cent completed. The reconstruction of
the Hilliers Road was completed. Sundry roads totalling 15 miles were reconstructed.
Some of the above roads, totalling 10.6 miles, were surfaced with M.C. 2.

ment: 3.4 miles of the Yellow Point Road was made ready for pavement-    I
Christie Road was widened and
pavement; 3.4 miles of the Yellow Point Road was made ready for pavement- a li
miles of the South Shore Road was heavily shouldered.   Christie Road was widened   I
gravelled.    Extensive ditching and shouldering was carried out on the Nanaimo R
Road. Barnes Road was reconstructed so that maintenance work could provide a b tt
road in future. South Shore Road was extended and improved for the distance of '
half mile. The Holden-Corso Road was given a crushed-gravel surface for a distan "
of 1 mile.
Bridges.—Powell Bridge, Dunning Bridge, Colliery Bridge, Holden Bridge, Lake
Bridge, Grant Bridge, and Currie Creek Bridge were all replaced by culverts and fill
Hill Bridge, Tennis Court Bridge, Hawkins Bridge, and Mariners Bridge were all replaced
with new structures.
| Esquimalt District
Maintenance.—A chemical-spray programme was carried out on the main highways
to control the brush; however, it had to be modified in settled areas, where it was found
that the ester type of spray could damage gardens and field crops in the vicinity. A large
gravelling programme was carried out on side-roads, using screened gravel.
Construction.—The district laid 1Va miles of road-mixed surfacing and seal-coated
5 miles, chiefly on side-roads. A 390-foot trestle on the West Coast Road was replaced
by a culvert and fill; however, work on two other fills on the same road had to be postponed because of adverse weather.
Contractors commenced construction work on 6 miles of new location of the Trans-
Canada Highway from Douglas Street in Victoria to Goldstream.
Bridges.—The community of Jordan River was isolated in December when Black
Creek Bridge on the West Coast Road washed out. In spite of poor weather the district
bridge crew replaced this 200-foot trestle within ten days. The district crew also completed 90 per cent of the work on a new 227-foot creosoted-timber trestle over Jacobs
Creek on the same highway and trestles over Elf ord Creek on Shawnigan Lake Road and
Findlay Creek on Sooke Lake Road.
Nanaimo-Islands District
Roads.—The Fulford-Ganges Road for 1.7 miles was reconstructed, ready for
pavement. The Lower Ganges Road was reconstructed, and gravelling was carried out

Contractors constructed 4 miles on the Trans-Canada Highway and nawri q
on the Patricia Bay Highway. Jj| miles
Inasmuch as half the district roads have an asphalt surface, maintenance work
sisted chiefly of patching roads, clearing brush, and cleaning ditches. Throughout^
winter, snowfall was light and gave no serious trouble. e
Bridges.—Contractors commenced work on a reinforced-concrete bridge ac
Colquitz River on the Trans-Canada Highway. s
Ferries.—Contractors completed a new landing at Swartz Bay for the Swartz Bav-
Fulford Harbour Ferry.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 2 (BURNABY, CHILLIWACK, DELTA DEWD
NEY, MACKENZIE, NEW WESTMINSTER, NORTH VANCOUVER AND
VANCOUVER-POINT GREY ELECTORAL DISTRICTS).
(Divisional Engineer, W. R. Workman)
Burnaby District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance, consisting of ditching, patching, cleaning
catch-basins, shouldering, and the painting of crosswalks, was carried out on all roads.
Reconstruction.—Westridge diversion, 0.4 mile, completed to within 1 to 2 feet of
the subgrade elevation.
Hastings-Barnet Road (14r), 0.1 mile from Arden Avenue westerly, 75 percent
completed. Embankment was made in accordance with proposed realignment for this
section of road.
Buildings.—Approximately 3,000 cubic yards of fill was hauled to and bulldozed at
the new Public Works yard at Grandview and Willingdon. No start was made on the
erection of the proposed buildings.
Snow-removal.—There were two successive heavy snowfalls in January, but with
the aid of hired equipment all roads were kept open. Normal sanding operations were
carried out to combat icing conditions during the other winter months. Bulk salt was
used on Kingsway and was found to be very effective.
Chilliwack District
Reconstruction.—On the Trans-Canada the following sections were reconstructed:
Delair Road to Marshall Creek No. 1, 0.85 mile, and Sumas River to Sumas Canal, 5.16
miles.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A total of 0.15 mile of bituminous surfacing was laid down
west of Marshall Creek No. 1, and 6.43 miles of processed base was applied from Sumas
River eastward.
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all main roads, and t e
condition was satisfactory at the end of the fiscal year, although sections of the Trans-
Canada Highway in particular suffered considerable damage due to spring break-up.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal costs were slightly higher than in the previous ye ,
due to heavy snowfall in January.   However, thanks to the continued efforts of malignance crews, all roads were cleared with very little delay.   Sanding operations were
tinued extensively, ensuring, in so far as possible, the safety of the travelling put)  .
Bridges.—Normal maintenance and inspections were carried out on all on g
the district.
 DISTRICT REPORTS M 43
Ferries.-—The Agassiz-Rosedale Ferry was maintained and operated satisfactorily
throughout the year. Operation ceased on four occasions for periods of one day or less,
due to various circumstances, and a complete shut-down was necessary from January
15th to February 25th, 1954, as a result of ice which formed in the river.   ||
Miscellaneous.—Construction of new equipment-sheds at Abbotsford and Rosedale
was commenced. These sheds, when completed, are to consist of three bays each for
storage of equipment, and an additional bay for offices and general storage. A building
for storage of oil and fuel-pumps are also to be provided at each site.
Delta District
Reconstruction.—Reconstruction of the New McLellan Road from Johnston Road
to King George Highway was completed. One mile of Scott Road, from River Road to
the British Columbia Electric Railway crossing, was completed.
Construction.—Construction began in June on the Beaubien Road between Scott
Road and Bergstrom Road, a distance of 2 miles, and was 80 per cent completed during
the season.
if   The Endersby Hill project, connecting the Beaubien and Ladner Trunk Road, a
distance of 0.76 mile, was started in September and 30 per cent completed.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Bituminous surfacing was applied to the reconstructed
section of highway.
Maintenance.—Bituminous patching and shouldering repairs were made on all main
roads in the district. Ditching, brushing, mowing, and other normal maintenance work
were carried out in a satisfactory manner. Severe spring break-up resulted in considerable deterioration in the surface of King George Highway.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal problems were few until January, 1954, when costs
began to rise sharply, due largely to the exceptionally heavy snow-storm which occurred
early in the year. Extensive use of calcium chloride and sanding was necessary, and,
considering conditions, a good job was done in keeping roads clear for traffic.
Bridges.—Ordinary maintenance was carried out on all bridges in the district.
Bridge No. 10-28 (Richards) was replaced by a culvert installation.
Ferries.—The Ladner-Woodwards Ferry operated satisfactorily throughout the
year. Construction of the new landing at Woodwards Landing was completed. Service
was maintained almost continuously, with minor shut-downs for repairs and inspections.
Miscellaneous.—A new flood-box was installed and drainage completed in connection with the Barnston Island dyking system.
Dewdney District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance, such as bituminous patching, ditching, brushing, and grading, was carried out on all highways and local roads.
The channel of Legace Creek was cleaned out, and a number of local roads in Hatzic
Prairie were gravelled with the material excavated.
Approximately 400 feet of underground drainage was installed on the Lougheed
Highway in the Village of Mission.
Reconstruction.—One and one-half miles of reconstruction was done from Mile 3
to Mile 4.5 east of Deroche on the Lougheed Highway. The gravelling of this section
was not completed.
Construction.—The Lougheed Highway extension from Maillardville to Essondale
was under construction and 60 per cent completed. This work was done by contract.
One and one-half miles of low-standard road was built in the Woodhaven Subdivision. This is the Ioco-Bedwell Bay Road, and there was 0.25 mile incomplete at the
end of the fiscal year.

PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1953-54
 DISTRICT REPORTS M 45
Bridges.—Maintenance was carried out on thirty-one bridges. The superstructure
of the Sturgeon Slough Bridge (No. 11-57) was almost completely renewed, and the
trestle approaches eliminated by culvert and fill. |,
Reserve Bridges Nos. 1, 2, and 3 on the project east of Deroche were demolished
and replaced with two precast concrete-stringer bridges. I
The following bridges were replaced by culvert and fill:—
Aliceville (No. 11-1); Replaced by a 48-inch-diameter concrete culvert pipe
in cradle.   Fill material obtained from slopes in accordance with proposed
realignment for the Barnet Road.
Montgomery (No. 11-13):   Replaced by a 120-inch-diameter multiple-plate
steel pipe.
Beck (No. 11-113): Replaced by a 60-mch-diameter concrete pipe in cradle.
Agassiz Mountain (No. 11-194): Replaced by a 60-inch-diameter multi-plate
steel pipe, 40 per cent carry-over from last year.
Paving.—Three and one-half miles of plant-mix pavement was laid east of Deroche,
24 feet in width, and 0.44 mile of plant-mis; paving was done in the Village of Agassiz.
The following roads in the vicinity of Dewdney Village were double flush-coated:
Newton Road, 0.5 mile; McKamie Road, 0.5 mile; and Hawkins-Pickle Road, 0.2 mite.
Buildings.—Approximately 3,500 cubic yards of fill was hauled to the new Public
Works yard at Mission.   A start was made on the proposed four-bay equipment-shed for
this site, and was 30 per cent completed.
Ferry-landings.—The Agassiz ferry-landing was damaged during the spring breakup. As a result, a new landing was installed farther down-stream. This necessitated the
driving of dolphins, river dredging, the building of a dyke, and the construction of 0.32
mile of road. This work was completed except for the rock protection work along
the dyke.
Snow-removal.—All roads were kept open without too much difficulty, apart from a
week in January. There were two successive heavy snowfalls in January. Drifting conditions hampered snow-removal in the Hatzic and Nicomen Island areas. All main roads
were kept open, and the side-roads were opened up as soon as possible.
Dewdney East District
Maintenance.—A total of 9.85 miles of road on the south side of the Fraser River
was maintained.
Mackenzie District
Maintenance.—Regular maintenance work was carried out on all roads. A number
of bridges were replaced with culvert and fill.
Construction.—Between Gibsons and Port Mellon, a distance of 4.5 miles of new
road was constructed.
Beach Avenue Road, between Gibsons and Granthams, for a distance of 4 miles,
was reconstructed.
Gibsons-Pender Harbour Road was widened from Mile 26 to Mile 28 and Mile 45

ENGINEERING DISTRICT No.  3   (COLUMBIA, KAMLOOPS, REVELSTOKE
m        j      SALMON ARM, AND YALE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
(Divisional Engineer, F. E. Dembiske)
Kamloops District
General Maintenance. — The Trans-Canada Highway has received considerable
attention and is now in good condition. Considerable ditching and shoulder maintenance
has been carried out. Burning and weed-spraying have kept the right-of-way clear and
tidy. Reconstruction of cattle underpasses was started during this period and the improvement in appearance is very noticeable. Considerable patching and recapping have been
necessary on the old sections of the Trans-Canada Highway west of Kamloops.
The North Thompson Highway and Kamloops-Merritt Road have received increased
maintenance and a good travelling surface has been maintained. All side-roads have been
maintained. Drainage, grading, and gravelling have been continued, but considerable
work is still needed to keep these roads open during wet weather.
Winter maintenance was heavier than past years. Our new tandem truck enabled
speedy transportation of bulldozers, and favourable comments were received concerning
the service rendered during the winter.
General Construction and Reconstruction.—Two and a quarter miles of the Kamloops-Merritt Road was reconstructed and opened to traffic. A portion of this was heavy
rock work and greatly improved the road. Very favourable reports were made on this
work, and considerable winter sanding expenses were saved by the improved grade.
Reconstruction of the road to Tranquille was completed and is now ready for paving.
Five miles of the North Thompson Highway (Mile 71 to Mile 76) were reconstructed and opened to traffic.
Minor reconstruction programmes were completed on side-roads.   Improvemen
were made in Powers Addition by opening up two streets and gravelling.
Classified routes through the Village of North Kamloops, the City of Kamloops, ana
Ashcroft were maintained on a share basis with the community concerned.
_9ndg£>_\—Reconstruction of the Upper Clearwater Canyon No. 2 Bridge was completed in the North Thompson area. Tranquille Creek No. 1 Bridge was reconstructe,
along with three other less important bridges.
All bridges in the area were maintained as needed.   Bridge eliminations be
Vavenby and Mad River on the North Thompson have improved the bridge conditions
this area as four dangerous bridges were eliminated.
 DISTRICT REPORTS M 47
Ferries.—Routine maintenance work was carried out on all ferries in the district and
no traffic tie-up occurred.
Reconstruction of the McLure Ferry and towers was nearly completed during this
period.   A power-boat was placed at Little Fort and has since proven very satisfactory.
Revelstoke District
Maintenance.—The addition of two new power-graders to district equipment for the
Big Bend made a great improvement possible in the general condition of all roads. The
use of calcium chloride on the Big Bend section of the Trans-Canada Highway proved
very successful, particularly where freshly gravelled surfaces were available for treatment.
The Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road was heavily gravelled from Mile 14 to Mile 24
with river-bed gravel.   This made an excellent road and packed extremely well.
Nearly all side-roads in the western section of the district have now been thoroughly
overhauled.
The pavement on the arterial highway on Douglas Street was beyond patching. This
was completely ripped out and the road rebuilt and regravelled. Unfortunately, the wet
summer made it impossible to make a cold road mix that would stay in place under heavy
traffic.   The road was relaid again but will have to be redone in 1954.
Construction.—Two permanent-type steel bridges were built on the Trans-Canada
Highway to the west of Revelstoke. The new continuous-girder span at Three Valley
Lake spans both the Canadian Pacific Railway and the Eagle River in three spans totalling
245 feet.   At Malakwa a truss span of 183 feet completed the road revision started in
1949-      I s
Extensive work was carried out by Department forces with funds supplied by the
Department of Mines on the road from Trout Lake to Gerrard.
Several old cribs on the Trout Lake-Beaton Road were by-passed by heavy construction work. A half-mile of the Mara Lake Road was blasted out of solid rock to a
good width.
Storm damage to the west road was repaired. This involved a new 30-foot bridge
and flood-channel at Griffin Lake and a 60-foot bridge and one-quarter-mile road revision
at Camp Creek.
Bridges.—Thirteen bridges totalling 713 feet in length were replaced by fills and
culverts.
Downie Creek bridge was completely overhauled, and six other major bridges
redecked.   All bridges were kept in a good state of repair.
Bridges at Silver Creek and on the Waverly Trail were washed out by a flash flood
on the Illecillewaet River in July. These were replaced by the mining and logging
interests respectively interested.
Ferries.—Ferry service was maintained with few interruptions, although both main
cables had to be replaced during the year.
Snow Service.—All roads were kept open during the winter, with the exception of
the Big Bend Highway.
No school-bus routes were ever blocked long enough to curtail services. A radiotelephone was placed in Trout Lake to facilitate communications.
Salmon Arm District |
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout the
year. On a number of the side-roads minor improvements, such as ditching, widening,
and gravelling, were undertaken. Old wooden culverts were replaced with metal pipe.
Little or no tax work was authorized as in past years.
Reconstruction.—Trans-Canada Highway from Mile 402.7 to Mile 407.63 (4.93
wiles), Tappen-Salmon River section, was realigned and constructed to standard. Work

commenced in May and was 75 per cent completed. On the Trans-Canada Highway
from Mile 414.66 to Mile 418.88 (4.22 miles), Larch Hill-Canoe section, a start was
made in November, but owing to adverse weather conditions only 50 per cent of the
clearing was completed by the end of the year.        M
The following-mentioned side-roads were realigned and constructed by our own
forces and all work 100 per cent completed: Mobley (No. 26), Mile 0.0 to Mile 1.0
(1.0 mile); Chase-Falkland (No. 194), Mile 2.5 to Mile 3.9 (1.4 miles); Tappen
Valley (No. 33), Mile 2.6 to Mile 4.6 (2.0 miles); Squilax-Anglemont (No. 446), Mile
13.9 to Mile 14.7 (0.8 mile); Douglas Lake (No. 292), Mile 0.0 to Mile 5.5 (5.5
miles); Falkland streets (No. 315), (0.5 mile); hole-drilling and blasting rock points
between Mile 1.0 and Mile 5.0 (No. 451). §
Bridges.—One bridge was renewed on a new site over Lea Creek on the Squilax-
Anglemont Road. Squilax Bridge (length, 846 feet) over Little River was completely
redecked, and all stringers, cross-ties, wheel-guard, and fence were renewed. In addition,
repairs were made to twenty-three other bridges.   Five bridges were replaced with culvert
and fill. M it
Bituminous Surfacing.—No bituminous surfacing was undertaken in the district
during the year, except for 8,000 gallons of bunker oil sprayed on sections of the Trans-
Canada Highway and townsite streets by our own forces in order to alleviate the dust
nuisance.
Snow-removal.—The average total snowfall on lower levels for the district, which
commenced November 19th and ended February 13th, was 54 inches. All roads were
kept open.
Ferries.—Ferry service between Sorrento and Scotch Creek operated satisfactorily
during the year.   Little or no ice conditions were experienced on Shuswap Lake.
Yale District
Maintenance.—Considerable progress was again made in the Fraser Canyon, with
clean-up of slide material, brushing and weed-control, asphalt patching, and sign-
maintenance. Gravelling on other district roads will now be stepped up as a gravel-loader
has been acquired. A continuous programme was maintained on grading, brushing, and
culvert installation on main and secondary roads. Extensive widening was carried out on
the Brookmere and Tulameen River Road.
Major Reconstruction and Improvements.—Reconstruction on the 2.95-mile section
from Kanaka Creek to Jackass Mountain, involving two bridge eliminations and heavy
quantities, was 65 per cent completed.
A 2.5-mile section of the Merritt-Kamloops Road was reconstructed from Mile 17.0
to Mile 19.5, involving widening along a rock bluff to provide rock riprap along the
lake-shore relocation.
The Merritt-Princeton Road was reconstructed from Mile 66 to Mile 71, and a total
of 1.3 miles of Hamilton Hill was reconstructed to eliminate sharp curves.
On the Coalmont Road at Tulameen, 1 mile of reconstruction eliminated a dangerous
hill and failing bridge.   A blind rock corner was also improved.
Buildings.—A new bunk-house and draughting-room building was constructed at
Merritt, and painting and repairs were carried out on other district buildings.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Hot plant-mix pavement was laid on recently reconstructed
sections of the Merritt-Kamloops Road (Merritt to Nicola, 6.11 miles) and the Merritt-
Princeton Road (13.82 miles).
Near Alexandra Lodge, 3.6 miles of reconstructed highway was paved and 0.6 mile
of old pavement was recapped. North of Yale, 0.72 mile was paved and 1.33 miles was
pulvi-mixed. Between American Creek and Yale a further 5.42 miles of reconstruction
received the same processed-base treatment. Several short sections of the Trans-Canada
Highway were road-mixed by district forces.
 M 50 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1953-54
Bridges.—Voght Street, Guichon, and Quilchena Reserve Bridges on the M   *
Kamloops Road were replaced by creosoted-pile and precast concrete-slab struct^
A new bridge was built on a relocated section at Tulameen and a failing frame tM?"
(60 feet) bridge was replaced north of Yale. estle
The redecking of many bridges was carried out.   Bridge decks in the district
now in excellent shape, with only two exceptions—Sailor Bar and Tank Creek BridT
on the Trans-Canada Highway.   Constant inspection of joists in particular was required
on the remaining old structures on the Trans-Canada Highway due to increasing truck
traffic.
Ferries.—Service of the North Bend Aerial Ferry was interrupted for a total of only
one and one-half days to renew haulage cables and take up slack in main cables. During
the twelve months, 20,082 vehicles and 50,873 passengers (exclusive of drivers) were
transported, an increase of 20.1 per cent in vehicles and 9.3 per cent in passengers over
the previous year. This increase was made possible by the installation of an electric
winch during the previous year.
Progressive repairs and improvements were made to the North Bend Aerial and the
Lytton Reaction Ferries.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 4 (GRAND FORKS-GREENWOOD, NORTH
OKANAGAN, SOUTH OKANAGAN, AND SIMILKAMEEN ELECTORAL
DISTRICTS).
(Divisional Engineer, L. E. Willis)
Grand Forks-Greenwood District
Roads.—Roads throughout the district were well maintained. On the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway 7.6 miles of road mix was laid, which extended the pavement
from Greenwood to Eholt. The Grand Forks-Carson Road was treated with special
primer, which stood up satisfactorily enough to warrant gravelling the Almond Gardens
and Valley Roads east in preparation for a similar treatment. The Santa Rosa Summit
section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway and the Grand Forks-Lynch Creek
Road were widened between Greenwood and Boundary Falls, 3.22 miles of road was
reconstructed, the work including a diversion of Boundary Creek and the elimination of
Lower Williamson Bridge.
Snow-removal.—All roads in the district were kept open all winter with the exception of the Carmi-McCulloch Road, which was closed for fifty-seven hours from January
26th to 28th. A camp was established on the Santa Rosa 1 Mile High j Summit, and the
14.5-mile road was kept open throughout the winter with one grader and a sand-truck,
although the snowfall totalled approximately 17 feet.
Bridges.—The approaches were filled in with broken rock on Midway Bridge to
eliminate the old pile-trestle approaches. Christina Bridge, Kettle Valley Bridge, Schulli
Bridge, and Westbridge Bridge were all redecked. Blue Joint, on the Grand Forks-
Franklin Road, was reconstructed. Construction of Gilpin Suspension Bridge across the
Kettle River 7 miles east of Grand Forks was 75 per cent completed. § Sixteen bridges
were replaced by approximately 700 feet of corrugated steel culvert.
Equipment.—Two 4-ton dump-trucks (one equipped with swivel frame) and a
Tractair were received.   The Tractair was equipped with mower and front-end loader.
North Okanagan District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads.  Extensive graveling was carried out on the Okanagan Highway north of Grindrod, Lumby-Mabel LaKe,
Enderby-Mabel Lake, Vernon-Slocan, and Westside Roads.   Numerous culverts we
installed.   Brush-cutting was carried out on the Okanagan Highway between Larkin a

Armstrong. Approximately 15 tons of calcium chloride was used as a dust-layer  Fft
hundred cubic yards of plant-mix asphalt was used for patching.   Highway centre IT
included Okanagan Highway, Armstrong to Enderby, Oyama to Vernon, O'Keefe to S
Lake on the Kamloops Road, and Vernon to Lumby on the Vernon-Slocan Road  ^
Surfacing.—Thirty-five miles of hot plant-mix surfacing and 3 miles of pulvi- *
were carried out by the Surfacing Branch. "m
Reconstruction.—Reconstruction of 10.7 miles of fruit-haul roads in the Ova
district was completed. The following fruit-haul roads around Vernon were also reccT
structed: L. and A., Brickyard-East Vernon, Kedleston, and the B.X. Roads Th
construction of the Okanagan Highway from Vernon to Swan Lake was completed by con-
tract. The arterial highway from the south city limits to Barnard was rebuilt, including
curb and gutter. From Forty-third Avenue to the northerly city limits was also rebuilt
Two and one-half miles of the Mara Lake Road north of Grindrod was rebuilt and
gravelled. Eight miles of the Lumby-Mabel Lake Road was gravelled. A start was
made on reconstruction of the Vemon-Slocan Highway east of Lumby.
Bridges.—Three timber bridges were rebuilt, and six bridges were replaced with
culverts.   Major repairs were carried out on nine other bridges.
Snow-removal.—Snow was of average depth around Vernon and Oyama, but slightly
heavier than usual in the Lumby, Cherryville, and Enderby areas. The Vernon-Slocan
Highway east of Cherryville was kept open all winter.
South Okanagan District
Maintenance.—Minor improvements were made in alignment of local roads. Extensive regravelling was done, and an intensive shouldering, ditching, and weed-control programme was carried out. A full-time patching crew was employed to keep paved roads
in repair.
Reconstruction.—Work was carried out on the Westside Road to Nahun.
Surfacing.—Two and eight-tenths miles were paved with asphalt road mix, 28.5
miles were treated with asphalt surface treatments, and 5 miles of Highway No. 97 were
seal-coated. -S
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions were normal, but the spring thaw was late. All
roads were kept open, including the McCulloch Road to Carmi.
Bridges.—The Hollywood Bridge on Mission Creek was rebuilt, and several smaller
bridges were replaced by culverts. The flash-flood characteristics of Okanagan drainage
make culvert design very difficult. Construction of an experimental pre-cast concrete
bridge was initiated, and the test girder was successful.
Ferries.—Traffic increased over 1952 but the service was adequate. By adjusting
the schedules, the complaints of poor service were eliminated.
Similkameen District
Maintenance.—All gravel roads were regularly maintained, and considerable gravelling was done in the Oliver, Princeton, and Keremeos areas. Extensive bituminous patching was done, particularly on the Hope-Princeton section off the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.
All roads came through the winter in very good condition with little damage done to
paved roads.
Reconstruction.—On the Merritt-Princeton Road a further 2 miles was reconstructed, making a total of 9 miles from Princeton to Merritt. A distance of 1 mile wa
reconstructed on the South Similkameen Road. One and one-half miles were reco -
structed on Highway No. 97 and 3 miles at Vaseux Lake. ,
Contract projects completed were as follows:  5.5 miles on the Okanagan Hig    j»

Oiling: 2.5 miles, Osoyoos; 2.8 miles, Oliver; 3.0 miles, Okanagan Falls; 2.8
miles South Similkameen; and 10 miles of special primer on the Copper Mountain Road.
Bridges.—A steel and concrete structure was completed over the Okanagan River
in Penticton (length, 160 feet). A 160-foot steel and concrete structure was also completed on Fairview Road over the Okanagan River.
A steel and concrete structure 40 feet in length was completed by Department
forces over One Mile Creek on the Merritt-Princeton Road. One bridge was replaced
by a 48-inch culvert and fill.
A wooden pile-trestle bridge, 68 feet in length, was replaced on the old Hedley Road.
A 140-foot wooden pile-trestle bridge was constructed over Shuttle worth Creek in the
townsite of Okanagan Falls. Extensive repairs were carried out on numerous bridges
throughout the district.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was generally normal in the Okanagan area but heavy in
the western section of the district. Over the Allison Pass Summit, for a distance of 23
miles, the snowfall was the heaviest since the highway opened in 1949, the recorded
snowfall at Allison Pass being 34 feet 8 inches.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 5  (COLUMBIA, CRANBROOK,
AND FERNIE ELECTORAL DISTRICT)
(District Engineer, J. A. Dennison)
Columbia District
Maintenance.—A general programme of minor betterments was continued on both
the Trans-Canada and Kootenay-Columbia Highways throughout the year. Extensive
gravelling along the Big Bend section of the Trans-Canada Highway was in progress after
it was opened on May 24th in order to prepare the surface for an application of calcium
chloride.
The roadway was dust-free throughout the summer, and its general condition was
far superior to that of the previous year. Considerable brushing and ditching work was
was also carried out during the season.
The Golden-Leanchoil section of the Trans-Canada Highway required additional
maintenance through slide zones on the newly constructed portion, and some pavement
patching was necessary in areas where consolidation of sub-grade took place.
Five hazardous sections along the Kootenay-Columbia Highway were improved by
widening the roadway and easing the curvature, and the general appearance of the right-
of-way was improved by initiating extensive brush and weed-control work.
The spring break-up, which normally commences in March, was approximately a
month late. Roads were therefore in above average condition during the latter part of
the fiscal year, and frost conditions were not troublesome during this period.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Kicking Horse Canyon section of the Trans-
Canada Highway from Golden to Mile 9 was in progress by contract throughout the year.
In spite of extreme construction difficulties encountered on this project, good progress
was made and a high standard of work was maintained.
Two miles of reconstruction was carried out by district forces on the Kootenay-
Columbia Highway south of Golden, and a standard subgrade width of 38 feet was
adopted.
 M 54 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1953-54
Bridges.—Two timber-truss spans were replaced with 120-foot span Bailey brid
on the Big Bend section during December by contract. 1 ^s
Two timber bridges were rebuilt by district forces—one crossing the Spillimadi
River and the second crossing the Columbia River.   Three other bridges were replau
with culvert and fills.   General repairs were made to numerous other bridges as necessary
Bituminous Surfacing.—One and one-half miles .of road-mix pavement was laidb
district crews through Invermere, and approximately 1,500 cubic yards of patching mix
was placed on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway to restore the surface.
Snow-removal.—Owing to an unusually heavy snowfall throughout the district
snow-removal costs were far above the normal; 124^ inches of snow fell in the Golden
area while 74 inches fell in the Windermere area. Continual snow-slides were experienced from January to March in the Kicking Horse Canyon section, and additional equipment was hired to take care of this work, J|
Cranbrook District
Reconstruction.—Several major reconstruction projects were carried out during the
fiscal year. Three and one-half miles of reconstruction approximately 8 miles west of
Cranbrook on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, started the previous year, was
completed, as was 0.5 mile of the Curzon-Kingsgate Highway. The latter was built in
conjunction with a new bridge at Kingsgate.
Five miles of the Kootenay-Columbia Highway near Ta Ta Creek was reconstructed
and gravelled with crushed-gravel surfacing.
Reconstruction of 3.6 miles of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway to standard
width was commenced, and this was approximately 75 per cent completed at the year's
end. This project was being carried out in conjunction with the erection of a new railway
overpass and a bridge over the Moyie River.
Maintenance.—Regular maintenance was carried out on all roads, such as ditching,
grading, brushing, repairing culverts, and patching. Frost-action was not as severe as
normal; consequently, moneys usually used on the repair of roads broken up by frost-
heaves were spent to good advantage on other maintenance projects.
Major gravelling with pit-run gravel was carried out on all roads in the Kimberley
area as well as certain sections on the St. Mary Lake Road, Cranbrook-Wycliffe, and the
Perry Creek Road.
Minor reconstruction was carried out on the Black Bear Road, and this road was
also gravelled with pit-run gravel.
». Department as well as hired forces were also used on the gravelling of some roads
in the Fernie District which are maintained by Cranbrook equipment. Minor reconstruction was started on Cobham Street on the outskirts of Cranbrook. All streets, totalling 7.5 miles, were gravelled with %-inch crushed gravel to a depth of 3 inches. Gravel
surfacing was obtained from a contractor's crusher.
Approximately 3 miles of gravel roads in the vicinity of Cranbrook were oiled to
combat the dust nuisance.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal costs during the months of January and February
were exceedingly heavy. Considerable hiring of outside equipment was required to cope
with the situation.
Bridges.—Minor repairs were carried out on bridges where repairs were needed.
Several bridges were redecked. A three-shift watch was kept on the C.P.R. Bridge at
Wasa.   This bridge is planked and used as a highway bridge.
New steel and concrete bridges were erected under contract over the Moyie River
at Kingsgate, Ward's Ranch, and Hiawatha Motel, and were opened to traffic. Contrac
were also let for the construction of a steel and concrete bridge and overpass at Aldnoge,
an overpass at Ryan, and a bridge over the Moyie River at Ryan.

Bituminous Surfacing.—Three and one-half miles of the Southern Trans-P   j
Highway south of Lumberton was road-mixed. r°vincial
Fernie District
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throueho
district during the year under report.   Side-roads were ditched, and many eristirt ih
wooden culverts were replaced with corrugated-iron pipe. The policy of widening se
dary roads during grading operations was continued.   Sign-maintenance, brushing ditch"
ing, etc., were carried out during the year. '
The Kootenay-Columbia Highway from the bridge crossing the Kootenay Riv
southerly for 4 miles to Wasa was given a lift of approximately 4 inches of crushed rock
The Bull River North Road was given a heavy lift of pit-run gravel, which should eliminate, to a great extent, damage due to the spring break-up in this area. The Elko-
Roosville Road from Roosville northerly for 7 miles was given a heavy lift of pit-run
gravel. Elk Valley Road and Mansfield Road were given a lift of pit-run gravel and
approximately eight small wooden bridges were replaced by culverts and fill.
Major Reconstruction and Improvements.—The contract for the reconstruction of
the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway between Fernie and Elko was completed. A contract was awarded to remove the solid rock in a 1-mile section of the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway east of Elko. This was completed and brought up to grade by
Departmental forces. The reconstruction of the remaining 2.5 miles of the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway east of Elko was started by day-labour and was 25 per cent
completed. Three miles of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Elko was
constructed to standard width by Departmental forces.
The bridge approaches to the new bridge at Alexander Creek on the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway were 90 per cent complete at the end of the year. This project
was carried out by Departmental forces.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Ten miles of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway west
of Fernie was paved to standard width with plant-mix asphalt.
Bridges.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all bridges throughout the district
during the past year.
Barn Bridge on the Coal Creek Road failed and was replaced by a 50-foot trestle
bridge.   Stringers, ties, and decking were renewed on Wilson Creek Bridge.
A contract was let for the construction of a 70-foot beam span at Lizard Creek and
a 60-foot beam plan at Alexander Creek. Both these bridges, with the exception of
painting, were completed.
Snow-removal.—The heaviest snowfall in years was experienced, the bulk of which
fell in a period of ten days in January. With the aid of considerable hired equipment, all
main roads were kept open, but many of the minor side-roads were blocked for a matter
of several days.
River-protection Work.—A small amount of river-protection work was done in the
Elk River at Fernie and Hosmer. The river was higher this year than it has been since
the flood of 1948. However, no great damage was done, although the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway west of Hosmer was flooded for a period of three or four days. There
was, however, no delay to traffic.

j General—The highways in the Kaslo-Slocan District were kept in good condiW
throughout the year.   Some difficulty in grader maintenance was experienced dunng
 DISTRICT REPORTS M 57
1 te summer due to extended dry periods. Very little difficulty was experienced during
h soring break-up.   No disruption to traffic was experienced at any time.
Major Programme.—This programme consisted of the following:—
Lemon Creek Revision, Slocan-Arrow Lakes Highway: Eighty-five stations from
I emon Creek Bridge South was relocated and constructed by Department forces to a
secondary standard (30-foot subgrade) with greatly improved alignment and grades.
Construction entailed moving approximately 25,000 cubic yards of bouldery material,
clearing 15 acres of heavy brush and timber, placing 275 rods of fencing, installing 725
lineal feet of culverts and water-pipe, and placing approximately 5,600 cubic yards of
pit-run gravel.
Slocan Park North Revision: Construction of 40 stations on new location was
carried out by the Department forces during late fall and winter. Due to weather conditions, work had to be closed down in early spring, and completion must wait till summer,
1954. This work was designed on improved alignment and grades with a 30-foot sub-
grade and steel drainage structures. Approximately 24,000 cubic yards of clay and
gravelly material were to be handled, and is about 75 per cent completed.
Lookout to Silverton: Extensive widening of rock corners and elimination of dangerous corners was carried out by Department forces. The work entailed extensive drilling and blasting and moving of large amounts of solid rock.    Pit-run gravel was also
placed.
jl   Silverton-New Denver:   Improvement to alignment and widening of sharp corners
was done by Department forces during early months of season.
Burton-Fauquier: Department forces, combined with hired equipment, eliminated
or improved forty-two blind corners from a point approximately 2 miles south of Burton
for a total distance of GVi miles; extensive widening was also done. Approximately
29,000 cubic yards of coarse bouldery material and clay was excavated, approximately
5,700 cubic yards of pit-run gravel placed, and 418 lineal feet of steel culverts installed;
brushing and some clearing was also done.
New Denver-Three Forks, Kaslo-New Denver Highway: Construction of final one-
quarter mile of new location was completed, including bridge structures across Kane and
Seaton Creeks. Widening and improving corners between Rambler Mill site and Whitewater was also done.
N Argenta-Johnsons Landing Tote-road: A 12-foot tote-road was constructed by
contract. This follows a well-surveyed forestry trail. Material was mostly bouldery
gravel, with some solid rocks encountered near Johnsons Landing. Due to the narrowness of road, quantities handled were not very great. The work included two small timber
bridges and four steel culverts installed.
Kaslo-Lardeau Road: This road, which is under jurisdiction of the Department of
Mines, was further improved under a Department of Mines grant. Extensive clearing
and burning of original slashing was done, a considerable number of steel culverts installed, rock sections drilled, blasted, and mucked out; also 8,900 cubic yards of pit-run
gravel placed over the entire 12 miles. About 40 per cent of the distance was improved
to a fairly safe standard. In January, 1954, Schroeder Bluff was resurveyed and construction of a 24-foot-wide road on easy grade was started. This will be completed by
late spring, and will entail drilling, blasting, and mucking of about 7,200 cubic yards of
sohd rock. In addition, approximately 2 miles of construction on fair alignment and
grades, and with a 30-foot subgrade, was done by the Department's forces from Cowan's
Corner to Shutty Bench. Special difficulties were encountered in maintaining existing
drainage and irrigation installations. As the new location went through settled areas, it
was also necessary to do extensive fencing. The following quantities were handled:
31,000 cubic yards of coarse boulders and clay, 800 cubic yards of solid rock, 7,800
cubic yards of pit-run gravel, and 600 lineal feet of steel culverts.    #

Asphalt Paving: Department forces prepared the sub-base through the City of
from Kaslo Creek Bridge to one block west of the hospital, and a three-inch plant pavi
mix was placed by the Surfacing Department in late May for a distance of 0.7 mile* alg
a distance of 0.3 mile was prepared and paved through the town of Ainsworth atthesam
time.
I Dust-laying Operations: Calcium chloride was placed between New Denver and
Silverton for a total distance of 2V& miles, and also through Passmore, Vallican, Winlaw
Appledale, Perry's, Rosebery, Hill Siding, Arrow Park (East and West), Burton, Fauquier, Needles, and Edgewood in varying applications from 1,000 feet to one-quarter
mile. Solid application was placed from the north end of Box Lake to the British
Columbia Power Commission's plant south of Nakusp, and also twelve blocks of streets
in Nakusp. Solid application was also placed from the south end of Kaslo Creek Bridge
to the south boundary of Mirror Lake, and also through Fletcher Creek flats, Woodbury
Creek, Kootenay Florence Mine area, and Coffee Creek sections.
Bridges.—Relocation for a new bridge across Seaton Creek on the New Denver-
Three Forks Road was completed in the late spring; simultaneously the Monitor Bridge
was rebuilt. In the late summer, the 50-foot King-truss structure known as McAllister
Bridge was dismantled and re-erected on concrete abutments on the site of Cemetery
Bridge in the Inonoaklin Valley. The crew was kept busy on general maintenance as
well, replacing decks, ties, stringers, and railings on bridges throughout the district.
An extensive programme of bridge elimination took place throughout the season,
with ten bridges replaced with culverts and fill and two bridges along Slocan Lake replaced
with concrete retaining-walls.
Ferries.—Ferries at Needles and Arrow Park were kept in operation without interruption, excepting for needed changing of cables and motor assemblies. Hulls and superstructures of barges were kept in excellent repair and appearance.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal equipment was kept busy from November to the
end of March. An unusually heavy amount of snow fell in the area during that period.
The Monashee Highway to Vernon was kept open the full year, and snow operations
here extended from November to mid-May, partly by hired equipment and partly by our
own equipment.   No slides hampered traffic on main highways.
Nelson-Creston District
Construction.—On the Nelson-Balfour Highway, Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, reconstruction of remaining 2V_j miles completed and gravelled during the month of
April preparatory to paving in May.
On the Nelson-Nelway Highway, construction commenced at the bridge over the
South Fork of the Salmo River for one-half mile south. This reconstruction improved
alignment and increased the road width from 15-foot to 33-foot subgrade. Starting lw
miles north of Emerald Mill, 2 miles constructed to improve alignment and width to 33
feet. Further to the above, several stretches were widened and gravelled preparatory to
paving in August.
On the Wynndel-Kuskanook Road, from Kuskanook southerly 2.75 miles constructed to standard width of 33 feet and covered with pit-run gravel, 1 mile being
surfaced with crushed gravel. From Wynndel northerly 2.25 miles reconstructed to toe
standard width of 33 feet and gravelled.
In the Nelson area, Knox Road was extended to join the main highway; Nffl
Street in Fairview was extended one block; and access road built at Duhamel Creek.
In the Creston area work was done toward relocation of the Creston-Lister Ko
Maintenance.—A large number of streets in South Nelson, Rosemont, and Fairvie
were gravelled.   There was extensive clearing of right-of-way on the Riondel Roa \

Approximately 2,000 feet of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway near La France
Creek south of Kootenay Bay was widened approximately 14 feet by blasting 4,000 cubic
yards of rock. §
Road maintenance was carried out extensively throughout the year, with emphasis
on more guard-rails, signs, pavement repairs, mowing, and brush-cutting. Grading of
gravel roads was maintained regularly throughout the summer and fall, with application
to numerous roads of calcium chloride and gravel. g
paving,—Paving of main highway consisted of 32 miles of hot plant-mix machine-
laid pavement. Details are as follows: Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, Balfour
westerly toward Nelson, 9.9 miles at 24 feet; Trail-Salmo Highway, Salmo westerly to
Rosspur, 9.3 miles at 24 feet; Nelson-Salmo Highway, second railway crossing south of
Nelson southerly, 1.2 miles at 24 feet; Salmo-Nelway Highway, Salmo River Bridge
southerly, recap 3.3 miles at 22 feet; road to Rosemont, 0.5 mile at 20 feet.
Flood Protection.—Considerable work was done in various stream-channels clearing
debris and dredging.
Bridges.—A bridge was eliminated by culvert and fill on the Nelson-Kaslo Highway.
Queens Bay Bridge (length, 115 feet; height, 40 feet; width, 14 feet 8 inches) was
replaced by 36-inch CLP. 220 feet in length covered by a fill 36 feet in height, comprising
10,000 cubic yards of gravel.
Hazel Creek Bridge on the Creston-Cranbrook section of the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway 17 miles east of Creston, a 27-foot bridge of log stringers, was
replaced by a large multi-plate arch 66 feet long, 11 feet 3 inches wide, and 7 feet 3 inches
high.
The building of 60-foot steel-beam bridge with concrete deck across Erie Creek was
completed.
The Great Northern Railway overpass, consisting of a creosoted-pile trestle with
laminated creosoted-timber deck (length, 194 feet 8 inches; height, 30 feet; width, 26
feet), was completed by contractor prior to paving in July.
Maintenance work was carried out on many district bridges. A major job which
was not complete at the year's end was the replacement of the framed timber towers of
the bridge across the Goat River on the Erickson Canyon Road. Major work was also
carried out on the bridge spanning the Slocan River at Crescent Valley.
Normal bridge maintenance as regards timber replacements and decking was
attended to.
Ferries.—New steel loading ramps were built on the Kootenay Lake ferry-landings.
The interior hull of the Harrop Ferry was thoroughly scraped and red-leaded. Normal
painting and dolphin maintenance attended to.
Government Buildings.—A security fence was built enclosing the Department yard
and garage on Front Street at Nelson. The parking area of the Nelson yard was paved
and catch-basins constructed.
Land was purchased at Boswell for the erection of a new equipment-shed, and room
thus provided for yard facilities. Wm
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was above normal in this district, requiring continual
ploughing and sanding, thus curtailing any maintenance during the winter months.
Miscellaneous.—A sidewalk was constructed on Falls Street. The Department contributed to the cost of curb and gutter and part of the sidewalks laid by the City of Nelson
on Front Street. mm     I m
The Department also bore part of the cost of an automatic signal protection installed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway on the Erickson Canyon Road at Erickson. Numerous
legal surveys of highway rights-of-way were put in hand.

Bridges.—Stiffening-trusses on the Chilcotin and Churn Creek Suspension Bridges
over the Fraser River were tightened and painted.
Big Creek No. 1, Black Creek, Johnson, and Shertinlib Bridges were completely
rebuilt. Thirteen other bridges received major repairs.
Eighteen bridges were replaced by culvert and fill.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall varied from 55 inches at Alexis Creek to 79 inches
at Lone Butte, with an average of 65 inches for the district. A total of 1,070 miles of
road was kept open by plough.
Sand and Gravel.—A total of 96,554 cubic yards of gravel and 1,449 cubic yards
of sand were hauled from sixty-three pits throughout the district.
Cariboo (North) District
Maintenance.—Maintenance and minor betterments were carried out as well as
available funds would permit. More grading has been possible in the past two years than
formerly because of the addition of a new grader, though much grader time has been
required for construction. Considerable attention was given to culvert installation and
general drainage on the main roads.
As with last year, a fairly heavy gravelling programme was undertaken, but devoted
mostly to the main highways.
Including projects, reconstruction and improvements were carried out on 107 miles
of roads, 90 miles being on main highways. This mileage includes reconstruction and
(or) gravelling, the following being regarded as main highways: Cariboo Highway and
Fraser, Barkerville, Quesnel-Nazko, Quesnel-Blackwater, and Quesnel-Hydraulic Roads.
During the calendar year 1953 the amount of gravel applied to the roads in the district
was 76,000 cubic yards of pit-run and 28,000 cubic yards of crushed (%-inch).
Projects.—On the Cariboo Highway, approximately 25 miles of last year's reconstruction gravelled for pulvi-mix, using gravel from crusher or pit-run gravel crushed on
the road with an Athey breaker. Five miles were reconstructed to standard width for
future pulvi-mix.   Several more miles were improved and gravelled to a lesser standard.
On the Fraser Road, 2.7 miles were reconstructed to 26-foot width, 0.5 mile
widened, and a total of 4.5 miles gravelled. ,
Major improvements were also carried out on Barkerville, Quesnel-Nazko, an
Quesnel-Blackwater Roads.
Paving.—A total of 25.2 miles on the Cariboo Highway were pulvi-mixed in several
sections between Macalister and Quesnel.
Bridges.—A new 68-foot King-truss span with approaches was built at Natffc
Throughout the district, six other small bridges were built and five bridges were ^j?^
by culvert and fill.    Sidewalks were constructed on the Quesnel and Canyon
 DISTRICT REPORTS M 63
Bridges. Major repairs were carried out on several bridges. One very poor section
of the Tibbies Road and a bridge were eliminated by building 0.8 mile of new road and
anew bridge over Baker Creek (Puntataenkut Lake area).
Ferries.—Three reaction ferries were floated, maintained, and pulled out of the
water again in the fall (Macalister, Soda Creek, and Gravelle).    f
Snow-removal. — The snowfall was the lightest for several years and was easily
handled by the graders on the main roads, except in the Wells-Barkerville area, where
two bulldozers, a truck plough, and a small (Huber) grader were required. The snowfall in this area was heavy after January.
For the first time the Quesnel-Nazko Road was kept open to Nazko all winter.
Only two ploughings were necessary west of the Tibbies Road because of the light
snowfall.
An intensive sanding programme was carried out on all main hills of the Cariboo
Highway and other roads in the Quesnel area. Hired bulldozers were used to plough
some of the outlying side-roads.
Lillooet District
Roads.—Several miles of roads were improved by contract and day-labour. The
most important improvements were made to the Trans-Canada Highway, where 6.94 miles
from Martel toward Ashcroft Manor were reconstructed and completed by contract and
another 6.52 miles from Spences Bridge to Martel were undertaken also by contract and
nearly completed.
Improvements to other roads were carried out by day-labour forces and consisted of
widening, straightening, and gravelling of the Cariboo, Lytton-Lillooet, Marble Canyon,
Bridge River, Pemberton Meadows, Pemberton Portage, Loon Lake, and Squamish-
Britannia Roads. In addition, ten bridges were replaced with culverts and fill and two
bridges eliminated by road relocation.
District crews carried out maintenance operations on important roads and completed
minor betterments to several roads in the Clinton area.
Bridges.—The Portage No. 1 Bridge and Spider Creek Bridge were reconstructed
during the year, and major repairs were made to Tyaughton and Mamquam Bridges. The
channel of the Mamquam River was cleaned and straightened up-stream from the bridge.
Ferries.—Reaction ferries at Big Bar and at High Bar and one cable-car ferry at
Pavilion were operated during the year. Extensive repairs were made to the wooden
pontoons of the two reaction ferries.
Buildings.—A single-bay garage for storage of snow-removal equipment was completed on Mission Mountain.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall in the district was nearly the same as last year. However,
the slower rate of snowfall allowed the district forces to keep important roads open without
difficulty. Wmm 9'  M

South Atlin
Roads.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads in the area, together
with an extensive brushing and gravelling programme on Bear River Road.
Bridges. — The following bridges were constructed: Bear River Bridge (double
Howe truss) on Bear River Road and Stewart-Hyder No. 2 (trestle) on Stewart-Hyder
Road.
 M 64 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1953-54
All bridge fences were painted white;   also name-plates and Scotch-lite
installed. ers
The following bridges were replaced by culverts and fills:   Bear River N

No. 2, Mosquito Creek No. 1, Bear Lake No. 3, Bear Lake No. 2, Bear Lake No i  i
on Bear River Road, and Fourteen Mile Bridge and Three Mile Bridge on Kitsault R1
Road. r
Bear River Road.—The grade was raised approximately 4 feet throughout a 3/4-m*l
section, by means of rock fill with a 9-inch pit-run gravel surface, to avoid annual floodi *
in this section. * *
Public Works Garage and Equipment-sheds. — The Public Works buildings we
painted outside and a new gasoline and oil house constructed;  also a new fence was
constructed around the yard-site.
Snow-removal.—A winter snowfall of 45 feet was dealt with successfully and the
roads of major importance were kept open, especially Bear River Road, where continuous
winter logging operations were carried out.
North Atlin
Roads.—The Atlin streets were gravelled and also various soft areas on the Atlin
Highway. Considerable widening was carried out on both the Spruce Creek and Surprise
Lake Roads.
The O'Donnell River Road was brushed out from McKee Creek to the hot springs.
Road signs were brought up to standard on the Atlin Highway.
Bridges.—All bridge fences on the Atlin Highway were painted white and Scotch-
lite reflectors installed, together with name-plates. A new crib pier was constructed (West
Pier) at Halfway Bridge (King truss) and also new fencing. Various other bridges in
this area were repaired.
The following bridges were replaced by culverts and fills: Little Boulder on Boulder
Creek Road, Crater Creek on Ruffner Road, Charlie Hill on Ruffner Road, Snake Creek
on Surprise Lake Road, and Four Mile on O'Donnell River Road.
Surprise Lake Road.—A Vi-mile revision was put through to avoid the clay banks
at Discovery; this consists of a gravel fill on an improved alignment. The revision makes
this an all-weather road.
Snow-removal.—A normal winter snowfall was dealt with successfully, and the roads
of major importance kept open. Permanent glacier-fences were built on the worst glacier
sections of the Atlin Highway. The glacier problem was successfully dealt with, and the
highway kept open throughout the winter by means of the above glacier-fences and fires
at the culverts.
Stikine
Roads.—Considerable improvements were carried out on Glenora Road to facilitate
trucking, due to the river-boat now stopping at Glenora. A limited amount of gravel
was placed on several steep hills on Dease Lake Road. Foot-trails were brushed where
necessary.
Bridges.—Casca No. 4 Bridge was completely rebuilt.   A new crib pier was constructed for the south pier of the Tahltan River Bridge (Howe truss), and extend
repairs were carried out to the piers of Tuya Bridge (double Howe truss).   Van
other bridges were repaired, including pack-bridges.
The following bridges were replaced by culverts and fills: Four Mile Bridge,
Bridge, and Six Mile Bridge, all on Glenora Road.
Snow-removal.—The roads in and around Telegraph Creek were kept open. A sprm
snow-removal programme was carried out on the remaining roads.
 DISTRICT REPORTS M 65
Prince Rupert District
jtoods. Roads in the district were maintained satisfactorily during the year.   Im-
rovement to some of the rock-bluff sections of the Skidegate-Queen Charlotte City Road
as made, with an approximate expenditure of $15,000. A commencement was made
. tj-e fan on the relocation of a short section of the Skidegate-Tlell Road where sea
erosion was seriously undermining the existing road. J Very wet weather caused this
oiect t0 b0g down prior to completion, but a relatively small further expenditure in
good weather should complete the project early in the new year. At Masset further
opening-up and improvement of existing streets was made, and considerable further
progress was made in the replacement of the plank road from Masset to Tow Hill with
gravel.
Bridges.—The Tlell River Bridge on the Queen Charlottes was entirely replaced
by a new 266-foot pile trestle located adjacent to the old bridge.   Maintenance work on
other bridges was carried out as required.
Wharves.—A large section of the Prince Rupert wharf was renewed from the piling
up. A new roof was put on the main building, and sundry repairs to other various
buildings were made as required.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall presented little difficulty during the past year, and all
roads were kept open throughout the winter.
Skeena District (East)
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout the
district. The Smithers-Omineca Boundary section of the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway was given a heavy coat of gravel in preparation for paving.
Construction.—Considerable reconstruction was carried out on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway, approximately 14 miles being standardized. Five miles of road was
built at Hazelton to eliminate the Hazelton Ferry. Four bridges were replaced by culverts and fills.
Paving.—A plant-mix pavement was laid on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
from Smithers to the Omineca Boundary.
Flood Protection.—A 2,000-foot clay dyke was constructed along the Bulkley River
near Smithers to stop periodic flooding of the highway.
Bridges.—General maintenance was carried out on bridges in the district, consisting
mostly of deck replacements and repairs.
Ferries.—All ferries operated satisfactorily and general maintenance was carried
out.  New landing-pontoons of a larger size were constructed for all the ferries.
Snow-removal.—The snowfall was comparatively light, but very bad icing conditions were encountered.
Skeena District (West)
Maintenance.—A very wet season made road maintenance difficult at times during
the past year, particularly with respect to grading of roads. The need of an additional
grader in the Terrace area was very evident. Roads generally throughout the district,
notwithstanding the above, were maintained in reasonably good condition throughout
most of the year, with no major trouble developing at any time.
Construction.—Several day-labour construction projects were undertaken and completed satisfactorily by district crews despite the handicap of unfavourable weather.
Improvements were made to various roads as follows:—
Kalum Lake Road: The approaches to Deep Creek Bridge were reconstructed to
new grade and alignment. Approximately 2 miles of this road south of Deep Creek was
reconstructed and gravelled.   Five small bridges were eliminated by culvert and fill.
Lakelse Lake Road: The approaches to Thornhill Creek Bridge were greatly improved in alignment and grade, and the bridge itself was replaced by a multi-plate culvert.
 M 66 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1953-54
Considerable rock excavation was involved in this reconstruction project, having
length of approximately 1 mile.   Two other bridges on this road were also elbninat d
by culvert and fill. I
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, Terrace-Pacific Section: A road revision
proximately three-quarters of a mile in length was made near Copper City to eliminate
a section of road where erosion of the river-bank by the Skeena River was endangeri I
the existing road.   A rock-drilling crew was kept working throughout the winter widening
the Copper River Rock Bluff section. 8
Merkley Road: The approaches to Spring Creek Bridge were improved, and the
bridge itself was replaced by a multi-plate culvert. A half-mile extension to this road
paralleling Spring Creek on the north side, was made to join with the Johnston Road
this allowing closure of the section of Johnston Road crossing Spring Creek Canyon and
thus also eliminating a bridge on that road.
Local Roads: Several local roads in the district were extended, reconstructed or
otherwise improved, notably Dairy Road (extended half a mile), Welsh Road (extended
one-quarter mile to serve new high school), Kilby Road at Remo (extended half a mile).
In addition to the ten bridges eliminated as listed above, two trestle bridges on the Prince
Rupert-Terrace section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway were eliminated by
solid fill, making a total of twelve bridge eliminations in all.
Bridges.—New four-span 60-foot trestle bridges were constructed over Deep Creek
and Glacier Creek and a new 50-foot log-stringer span was constructed over Goat Creek,
all being located on Kalum Road and constructed adjacent to the original bridges.
A considerable programme of superstructure renewal was carried out on bridges on the
Prince Rupert-Terrace section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. TTie Skeena
River Bridge at Terrace was redecked.
Snow-removal.—The district had a relatively light snowfall and a minimum of the
usual trouble with slides for the second successive year. All roads were kept open
throughout the winter as a result. A severe icing condition occurred in February, which
lasted for about a week. The Prince Rupert-Terrace section of the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway became very rough for a considerable period in late winter due to
mild daytime temperatures or rains removing the snow cover but not being sufficiently
warm to draw sufficient frost out at the road as to allow grading of the gravel.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 9  (FORT GEORGE AND OMINECA
I ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
:'l (Divisional Engineer, D. D. Godfrey)
Fort George District
Maintenance.—Regarding main roads, the John Hart Highway and Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway, Prince George west, were maintained in good condition. Frost-boil
action on the latter road was considerably less than usual. The condition of the Cariboo
Highway was not up to previous standard, as several miles of road, pulvi-mixed in 1952,
had to be scarified, and considerable trouble was experienced in maintaining a surface.
Maintenance of side-roads continued to be inadequate due to increased truck traffic
hauling lumber. An extensive ditching and gravelling programme was carried out on
the Dunster-Croydon Road, and considerable gravelling was done on other side-roa s.
Reconstruction.—Cariboo Highway: Reconstruction to a 36-foot subgrade wa
carried out between Mile 9 and Mile 15. Right-of-way was widened to 100 feet, an
the road high-grade and gravelled.
North Thompson Highway: Due to the construction of a new bridge over the was
River at Tete Jaune, an access road, 1.8 miles in length, was built on a new locafl^
Bridges.—A Howe-truss bridge was built on a new location over the Fraser
at Tete Jaune, using creosoted fir except for decking.
 DISTRICT REPORTS M 67
New pile trestle bridges were built over Moose River and Grant Brook, between
Red Pass and Yellowhead, to replace light structures built during the last war.
Redecking, including new stringers, was carried out on the Fraser River Bridge at
Dunster and the Beaver Creek Bridge. |
Ferries. The ferry at Croydon was discontinued due to bad condition of ferry and
towers and traffic not being such as to warrant the expenditure of renewal. The operation
of other ferries was normal. |
Surfacing.—Hot-mix paving was laid on 3.5 miles of the Cariboo Highway from
Prince George to the airport and 2.66 miles on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway,
Prince George west, this including 1.16 miles of arterial highway. Pulvi-mixing was
carried out on 19.6 miles of the John Hart Highway from Prince George to Summit Lake.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was later than usual, and in general the total snowfall was
about average. However, some 400 inches of snow fell at Pine Pass on the John Hart
Highway, and on several occasions the road was narrowed down to one-way traffic. Very
little drifting was experienced except at the Pine Pass, where conditions were very severe.
Omineca District (East)
General Maintenance.—A very wet season was experienced, and as a result it was
extremely difficult to maintain roads in a satisfactory condition. Frost-action early in
the year, followed by excessive rains, kept parts of the road soft and spongy throughout
the entire summer.
Reconstruction.—Reconstruction of certain parts of the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway was carried out with considerable difficulty. From Vanderhoof easterly to
Section 14, Township 2, a 4.4-mile section of road was reconstructed and fully completed, and also 1.5 miles from the Stellako Indian Reserve westerly, as well as 4 miles
from Fort Fraser westerly in order to provide an access road to the newly constructed
Nechako River Bridge at Fort Fraser. One and one-half miles were also reconstructed
on the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road.
Bridges.—A new deck truss bridge was constructed by contract over the Nechako
River immediately west of Fort Fraser. This bridge will eliminate the old Nechako River
Bridge farther down-stream, which was constructed in 1919.
In all, some forty bridges were repaired during the year. Five other bridges were
eliminated by installing metal culverts of large dimension.
Ferries.—The Hulatt Ferry was operated from the middle of April until the beginning of December. m
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was lighter than usual. Heavy January and February
thaws melted the snow rapidly in the lower levels. A total of 601 miles of road was
kept open during the winter, necessitating 9,937 snow-plough miles, at an average cost
of $72.65 per mile. It
Omineca District (West)
Maintenance.—General maintenance was satisfactorily carried out in the district.
Ditching was curtailed due to an abnormally wet summer.
Reconstruction.—A 2.5-mile portion of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway
west of Houston was rebuilt to eliminate flooding by the Bulkley River. A 4.2-mile
diversion west of Burns Lake on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was cleared
and grubbed in readiness for reconstruction in 1954. Fourteen and one-half miles of
secondary highway south of Francois Lake was reconstructed to satisfactory standard.
Five small bridges were replaced with metal culvert and fill.
Bridges.—A 60-foot King-truss bridge was reconstructed across the Bulkley River
at Knockholt, and all other bridges were kept in good repair.
Ferries.—The Francois Lake Ferry operated under full capacity throughout the
season due to construction work carried out by the Aluminum Company of Canada at
 M 68 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT, 1953-54
Ootsa Lake.    In the winter the ferry was drawn up for hull inspection and all n
repairs were carried out. essary
Paving.—A total of 6.7 miles of bituminous plant-mix paving was laid
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway at Burns Lake and Telkwa. n
Snow-removal.—Roads were kept open during the winter.   A prolonged mild
in midwinter caused severe icing conditions.   An above-average amount of sanding
necessary to rectify these conditions. g as
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No.  10 (PEACE RIVER ELECTORAL DISTRICT)
(Divisional Engineer, O. W. H. Roberts)
Peace River District
Maintenance.—Roads throughout the district were maintained satisfactorily. Main
roads and farm-to-market roads were maintained by Departmental machinery and hired
equipment as funds permitted. Side-roads were principally maintained by tax work
utilizing farmers' tractors, etc., and Departmental implements. Corrugated-iron pipe
and wood-stave pipe was installed to replace old wooden culverts on farm-to-market
roads.   Some minor improvements to side-roads were carried out by tax work.
Gravelling was carried out on the John Hart Highway from East Pine to Mile 202.2
to strengthen weak sections of this length which have not yet been reconstructed to the
standard of the rest of this highway. Some ditching and minor gravelling was carried
out from Arras to Dawson Creek on the district road at present in use to connect the
John Hart Highway to Dawson Creek. A survey for the completion of the John Hart
Highway into Dawson Creek was undertaken to enable comparison to be made of three
possible routes.
Reconstruction.—In Peace River (South) the following day-labour projects were
carried out by Departmental forces and hired equipment:—
Road No. 1, Dawson Creek-Alberta Boundary:   Clearing cuttings and widening.
Road No. 32, Dawson Creek-Briar Ridge: New diversion and grade revision on
the hills approaching the Riley Bridge.   This section of 1 mile was lightly gravelled.
Road No. 4, Pouce Coupe-Briar Ridge: New diversion and grade improvement
to hills leading to the Hanna Bridge, including gravelling.
Road No. 20, Tupper-Gundy: Five miles were reconstructed. Two miles of pit-run
gravel was put down on the hills leading to the Hays Bridge.
Road No. 70, Little Prairie-Moberly Lake: General improvements were carried out
over a length totalling 5 miles. Revision of alignment was cleared but was not completed
due to adverse weather.
In Peace River (North) the following day-labour projects were carried out:—
Road No. 101, Fort St. John-Upper Pine:   Four miles were reconstructed from
Mile 14.7 to Mile 18.7, together with 2 miles of Farm and Settlement Road No. 260 to
connect Rose Prairie with the existing improved section of this road, and 1 mile of new
diversion and grade improvement on approaches to Stoddart Creek.   The latter w
lightly gravelled. ,
Road No. 102, Hudson Hope:  One and one-half miles of grade improvement ana
widening was carried out from Mile 38.5 to Mile 40.0.    This greatly alleviated
dangerous condition of the " Hump " hill. ti fl
Road No. 103, Fort St. John-Alberta Boundary:  Eleven miles of new cmt^&
were undertaken to complete this road to the Provincial Boundary and connec
a road constructed by the Alberta Department from Hines Creek.   Some further
on this road remains to be completed in 1954. .        ,   a(je
Road No. 113, North Pine:   Twenty miles of standard reconstruction and gr
improvement.

Construction.—On the John Hart Highway between Little Prairie and C
Creek, 9.12 miles were constructed on a new alignment by contract and taken ^^^
Bridges.—Sixteen bridges on the John Hart Highway were redecked r^'
varying complexity were carried out to sixteen bridges, with minor repairs to somT* °{
others. Ten bridges were reconstructed. The Hanna Bridge, No. 50, over the P^
Coupe River was replaced by a new structure on a new site. The latter bridge cons"?!!
of a 70-foot King truss with standard pile trestle approaches. The truss was creoud
and prefabricated at the Coast and designed with a clear roadway-width of 22 f ^
The needle beams are of glued-laminated construction, pressure creosoted. It y Und
stood that this is the first King truss of this type to be built in this Province.
Twenty-five bridges were replaced by culvert and fill. Two were eliminated by road
reconstruction. To accomplish the above work, two bridge crews were continuouslv
employed. §
Ferries.—The Hudson Hope and Clayhurst Ferries operated during the ice-free
period. The latter was worked double shift for the whole season due to the increased
traffic from new settlements north of Clayhurst. Some considerable difficulty was experienced at the beginning of the season in establishing the fill and culvert of the Alces
River. A bridge at this point would facilitate operation of the Clayhurst Ferry and
alleviate the inconvenience to the travelling public caused by the ferry having to make
two landings.
Snow-removal.—No heavy snowfall occurred until late in December. Snowfall
generally was about normal. A total of 530 miles were kept open, with an additional
125 miles which were opened once a -month. The John Hart Highway was kept open
without interruption, except for two days when the road became impassable due to 30
miles of glare ice caused by an exceptional chinook wind followed by sub-zero weather
in February. The latter condition caused culverts throughout the district to become
frozen, and considerable difficulty was experienced in opening culverts when the spring
thaw set in.

 REPORT OF DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER M 99
REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER
The volume of spending on roads, bridges, ferries, etc., for repairs, construction,
and reconstruction continues to maintain a progressive level, as is evidenced by the
following pages, which cover the financial report of this Department.
The system of collecting revenue on our ferries by the tear-off ticket system, having
been found most satisfactory when instituted on the Ladner-Woodward Ferry, was
extended to include the Kelowna-Westbank Ferry in December, 1953, and the Agassiz-
Rosedale Ferry in January, 1954. It is intended to extend this system to Denman Island
Ferry, Francois Lake Ferry, and Kootenay Lake Ferry in the fiscal year 1954—55.
Preliminary preparations were made this year with the view of placing all records
maintained by the Mechanical Engineer in respect to mechanical-equipment maintenance
and up-keep on a machine basis in lieu of the present method of recording such records
on a manual basis.
J. E. Moore,
Departmental Comptroller.
