 HIGHWAYS REPORT
REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, B.C., August 24, 1964.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—Herewith are submitted district reports for the fiscal year 1963/64.
A summary of the mileages of highways shows that there are 25,024 miles
under the jurisdiction of this Department, and, of these, 3,706 miles are classed
as trunk highways, 1,752 miles as main highways, and 19,565 miles as other
highways. In addition to this there are 769 miles of classified highways (arterial
and secondary), of which 381 miles are trunk highways, 191 miles are main highways, and 197 are other highways.
The total expenditure on maintenance of roads, ferries, and bridges was
$19,443,167.
The cost of snow removal was $2,521,409, a 39-per-cent increase over that
of the previous year. This increase was due principally to a much heavier than
usual snowfall in the Interior. The mileage of roads kept open was 19,882, an
increase of 315 miles.
There are 52 ferries operating under the supervision of the Department. They
carried a total of 2,008,692 vehicles and 5,087,565 passengers including drivers.
The total mileage of roads constructed or reconstructed by day labour
was 348.   Improvements or minor betterments were made to 759 miles.
There were 625 right-of-way settlements negotiated during the year, the cost
of which amounted to $1,033,679.
There was a considerable increase in the number of subdivision plans handled
and also in the number of permits issued during the 1963 calendar year compared to
the previous year. The total number of subdivisions handled was 3,166, and, of
these, 504 were adjacent to controlled-access highways.
There were 390 permits issued for entrances on controlled-access highways,
908 for entrances on non-controlled-access highways, and 2,078 for other works
on Crown lands.
F. A. MacLean,
Assistant Deputy Minister.
 C 10 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER
Victoria, B.C., August 24, 1964.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—Submitted herewith are reports from the Senior Bridge Engineer, the
Design and Planning Engineer, the Director of Construction, and the Senior Paving
Engineer.
The total length of roads constructed or reconstructed by contract was 173
miles, which is 57 miles more than in the previous year.
The paving programme continued to expand, particularly in regard to bituminous plant-mix pavement, of which 361 miles were laid. This is an increase of
129 miles over that in the previous year. In addition to this 278 miles of road-mix
pavement were laid.
Although the total expenditure on bridge construction was only 80 per cent of
that in the 1962/63 fiscal year, 55 structures were completed and construction was
in progress on 31 others, as compared to 43 and 33 respectively in the year 1962/63.
This is due to the reduced average size of the bridges now being built. Structures
on the Trans-Canada Highway included in the above are 26 completed and 11 in
progress.
The length of final highway-location surveys completed during the year was
259 miles, and the length of office design complete with estimates was 172 miles.
Of the latter, 5.6 miles were urban street design.
D. D. Godfrey,
Chief Engineer.
  C 12 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
The year under review saw a continuation of the heavy programme of bridge
construction, there being 55 new or reconstructed structures completed during the
year and a further 31 structures under construction at the conclusion of the year.
The total gross expenditure of $15,760,000 compares with $19,800,000 expended
on bridge construction during 1962/63, when 43 new or reconstructed structures
were completed and 33 were under construction, the reduction in average cost of
structures being due to the smaller average size of bridge being built now that most
of the major bridges required have been built.
Twenty-six of the structures completed this year are Trans-Canada Highway
bridges, as are 11 of those under construction at the end of the year. The completion
of the latter will bring to a conclusion the present phase of bridge construction on
this highway, although planned modernization of certain sections thereof will require
still more structures in due time.
Reference to the tabulations appended will give detailed information of the
completed structures, and of those under construction but of special interest are
(1) the completion of the major crossing of the Fraser River near Prince
George for the relocated Cariboo Highway;
(2) the widening and strengthening of nine bridges on the western end of the
Hope-Princeton Highway;
(3) the completion of the many diverse structures required for the Trans-
Canada Highway in Burnaby Municipality;
(4) the strengthening of Chemainus and Cowichan River Bridges as part of
the programme to bring all bridges on the Vancouver Island section of
the Trans-Canada Highway up to fully modern standards; and
(5) the completion of the 624-foot-long Nimpkish River Bridge on the Port
McNeill-Beaver Cove Highway in the developing of the North Vancouver
Island area.
lt is gratifying to report that the experience of the 1961/62 winter showed
that the Department's snowsheds on the Rogers Pass Highway fulfilled their important function, the only untoward happening being avalanche overflows at each end
of the 1,000-foot-long Lanark Snowshed. The recurrence of such overflows has
now been precluded by the construction of high guide-walls at each end of this shed.
Arising out of the increasing need to provide safe passage for pedestrians over
high-speed highways, the Bridge Branch was called on to design and construct
a pedestrian overpass crossing the Upper Levels Highway in North Vancouver near
Pemberton Avenue, and in view of its location it was required that particular attention be paid to a_>thetics as well as function in the design. Both these requirements
may be said to have been fully complied with in the graceful coiled-spring structure,
which is pictured elsewhere in this Report.
The year saw the great Port Mann Bridge, carrying the relocated Trans-Canada
Highway over the Fraser River near Vancouver, virtually completed, and this
strikingly unique facility will be opened to traffic early in 1964. Further examples
of British Columbia pioneering in new bridge-construction ideas are the highly
individualistic prestressed concrete bridge now building to carry the relocated
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway over the Columbia River near Kinnaird and
the unprecedented suspension bridge with prestressed concrete deck under construction over the Peace River near Hudson Hope. Another interesting first for British
Columbia is the twin-tunnel underpass now being constructed near Greenwood
where the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway passes under the Canadian Pacific
 REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER C 13
Railway tracks in tunnels driven through a high embankment without interference
to railway traffic and without the need to construct the usual costly " shoo-fly "
trestle to carry the track during construction. A new technique was developed
here which may well have many future applications in like circumstances.
Weather conditions during the year were generally propitious for bridge-
construction operations, and apart from the occasional loss of a minor wooden
bridge, no damage was suffered from floods to the bridges on the highway system.
Soundings were taken at major river crossings, and remedial action taken where
evidence of scour appeared. Our district forces showed their usual ability in the
work of maintaining die many older timber bridges which have to be kept in service.
Construction materials continued in plentiful supply throughout the year, and
keen competition was in evidence among contractors tendering for bridge-construction projects. It speaks well for the contractors of the Province that they are able to
meet any demands that the constantly changing bridge-construction technique makes
on them.
As in previous years, the services of private consulting engineers were employed
during the year to augment the Bridge Engineer's staff in the design and supervision
of construction of the large volume of work undertaken for present and future
projects.
In line with the Department's road-construction programme, bridge-design
activities at the end of the year were directed toward the planning of the many
diverse structures needed on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, the North
Thompson Highway, the Stewart-Cassiar Highway, and the Kootenay-Columbia
Highway, as well as important isolated projects, such as replacement of the Taghum
Bridge near Nelson and the Fraser River Bridge at Quesnel by modern structures.
In summary, a busy, fruitful year in bridge construction in the Province can
be reported, with yet another in prospect.

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION (CONTRACTS)
The mileage of highway completed by contract on all highways was 173.1 miles,
of which 6.6 miles were multi-lane (four lanes). The Trans-Canada Highway
construction and reconstruction included in these mileages was 13.1 miles (5.1 miles
being multi-lane).
Grading excavation in all contracts totalled 19,578,061 cubic yards of solid
rock and other materials. Included in this amount were 3,682,636 cubic yards for
the Trans-Canada Highway.
An important connection in the Provincial highway system was completed this
year—namely, the Salmo-Creston section of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway
(length, 41.8 miles). Construction has been in progress since 1956. The elevation
of 5,819 feet on this section is the highest road elevation in British Columbia.
Paving was completed on 28.9 miles and base processing on an additional 3.8 miles.
Construction on the Trans-Canada Highway multi-lane section (Route No. 401),
from West Vancouver to Agassiz Junction, has been completed (75.9 miles).
Paving is virtually completed, except on the section from Port Mann Bridge to
Springbrook Road (12.1 miles), which is in progress. The two road contracts
here include portland cement base stabilization throughout.
All bridges are completed except the Port Mann Bridge across the Fraser
River, which is scheduled to open next summer.
Construction progress to date between Tabor Lake and Lamming Mills on
the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Prince George is as follows: Grading completed, 27.6 miles; clearing and grubbing completed, 34.7 miles; and not
started, 49.6 miles (totalling 111.9 miles). Completion of this section will bridge
the gap between Prince George and McBride. However, all of Route No. 16 from
Lamming Mills to the Alberta Border (95 miles) is yet to be reconstructed, as well
as from Tabor Lake west to the Fraser River near Prince George (12 miles).
The section from Tete Jaune to the Alberta Boundary (51 miles) is proposed to be
started next year.
A start has been made on the reconstruction of the Chetwynd-Hudson Hope
route to provide direct access to the Peace River dam. A contract is in progress
from Hudson Hope south, 12.67 miles.
On the North Thompson Highway the section from Little Fort to Black Pool
(Project No. 1279) is almost completed and partly base-processed. This practically
completes Route No. 5 from Kamloops to Vavenby to a fair standard (94 miles).
Project No. 1361, Vavenby to MacMurphy (14.80 miles), has been started. The
remaining distance to Tete Jaune (103 miles) is yet to be reconstructed, and it is
proposed to award contracts on this section next year.
Progress to date on the JStewart-Dease Lake section of the Stewart-Watson
Lake (Cassiar) Highway is as follows: Grading completed to Mile 26 (although
partly substandard, day labour); Mile 26 to Mile 58, 81 per cent completed;
Mile 58 to Mile 147, to be started next year; Mile 147 to Mile 187, 93 per cent
completed; Mile 187 to Mile 269, completed. The equivalent completed mileage
from Stewart to Mile 260 is 171 miles. The existing road from Dease Lake to
Cassiar Junction, 55 miles, is substandard and requires reconstruction. The remaining 77 miles to the Alaska Highway at Mile 401 is a fair standard mining-road.
A summary of the progress to date of other major areas of construction and
reconstruction, by contract, is as follows:  Sheep Lake-Rossland Cut-off, completed
 C 26 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
11.1 miles (equivalent), in total 17.45 miles; Fraser Canyon, Trans-Canada Highway (three tunnel contracts), completed 6.14 miles, in total, 6.64 miles; Bloedel
to Sayward, Island Highway (two contracts), completed 23.58 miles, in total,
30.62 miles; Terrace to Sheraton on Highway No. 16 west of Prince George (five
contracts, 1962 and later), completed 24.82 miles, in total, 34.67 miles; Skookum-
chuck to Radium, Kootenay-Columbia Highway (four contracts, 1962), completed
38 miles, in total, 44.05 miles; east approach to Fraser River Bridge at Prince
George (Prince George By-pass), completed 5.59 miles, in total, 6.43 miles.
During the fiscal year, quantities in road-construction contracts were as

  REPORT OF SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER C 31
REPORT OF THE SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
GENERAL
Progress of work on the paving programme this year was delayed by adverse
weather during the summer and poor distribution of work load within the paving
industry. Fortunately, a spell of fine weather in September allowed contractors to
make good progress on most jobs and bring a number to final completion, for a
total length of 335.33 miles of hot plant-mixed pavement, of which 25.41 miles were
four-lane construction. Bidding for contract paving work was very competitive,
with resulting low prices. Some contractors were much more successful than others
in submitting low bids and obtaining work. As a result, the successful bidders
tended to be overloaded with work, while other contractors had idle plants within
the Province. This uneven distribution of work load in relation to available plant
capacity reduced the possible total production of asphalt mix and pavement construction.
BASE STRENGTHENING AND HOT-MIX ASPHALT-PAVING
CONSTRUCTION
Eight continuing projects were finalized. Although Contract S-6662 (Prince
Rupert sections) was substantially completed in 1963, the project was continued
into the 1964/65 season to cover sand-sealing of the pavement to exclude water.
Twenty-six new paving projects were started, of which 13 were completed during
the year and 13 projects were carried over to 1964/65. Very poor weather from
October onwards prevented completion of paving on Burnaby Freeway, East
Hastings Street, and Marine Drive in West Vancouver, but fair spring weather permitted substantial completion of paving on the west end of Burnaby Freeway by
the end of March, 1964. On Project S-0563 (Marine Drive, West Vancouver) an
experimental open-graded carpet-coat was laid with the intention of sealing the old
pavement and at the same time reducing the glare from reflected headlights on rainy
nights. This surface proved hard to lay and joint in cold weather, and an attempt
to complete the project under unfavourable conditions so that the road could be
declassified resulted in some surface failures which had to be corrected the following summer.
No cement-treated base was constructed this year on paving projects, although
it was done on two grading projects, Nos. 1123 and 1187. However, base strengthening with asphalt concrete was done on several projects, and granular base strengthening was included in 19 of the 26 new paving contracts, so that this type of work
may be regarded as the rule rather than the exception now.
SURFACE TREATMENTS
Sand-seal surface treatment was performed between Pouce Coupe and the
Alberta Boundary and on the Wasa-Fort Steele Road, for a total distance of
approximately 27.4 miles. A trial 1-mile section of slurry seal was laid on Met-
chosin Road for observation. Seal-coat chips were crushed and stockpiled on the
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway west of Prince George (Project S-7163) in
readiness for chip-sealing work planned for 1964.
DEPARTMENTAL PULVIMDCERS
Once again the pulvi-mixer crew stationed in Region 4 was handicapped by
bad weather, mixing and laying only 25.35 miles during the season.   However, the
 C 32 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
second crew, working in Regions 2 and 3 where weather was more favourable, succeeded in remixing approximately 17 miles of roadway and mixed 41.41 miles of
new surface, for a total of approximately 58.41 miles of pulvi-mix, in addition to
the 15.4 miles of sand-sealing which this crew completed between Wasa and Fort
Steele. Approximately $74,000 was allocated to maintenance districts for road
mixing by district forces. During the winter a policy decision was taken to disband
the pulvimix crew normally allocated to Region 4 and to distribute the equipment
to maintenance districts.
IN-SERVICE TRAINING
Annual proficiency examinations were held as usual in March, 1963, but little
in-service training of paving personnel was done this year as those retained over the
winter were dispersed for employment in other branches, such as grade and bridge
construction.
PAVEMENT BURNER
In the spring the District Superintendent at Nanaimo used the pavement burner
to remove excess asphalt from patches of pavement on the Island Highway and
Trans-Canada Highway between Nanoose and Ladysmith. Otherwise no pavement
in the Province required burning. In the Fort George District an attempt was made
to use the burner for drying gravel in place on the road prior to pulvimixing, but
this use of the burner proved too costly for the results obtained.
DEVELOPMENTS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES
Reorganization
On October 1, 1963, the Paving Section of the Construction Branch was detached from the Construction Branch and established once again as an independent
branch, with the Senior Paving Engineer reporting directly to the Chief Engineer.
Specification Revisions
Bituminous Materials for Highway Use
A meeting was held in December, 1963, with representatives of the various
oil companies supplying asphalt materials to the Province of British Columbia to
discuss revisions to Specification Section 311, "Bituminous Materials for Highway
Use." The meeting was also attended by observers from the Department of Highways of Alberta and Saskatchewan. As a result of this preliminary meeting and
further discussions and correspondence, a revised and advanced specification was
prepared in which asphalt cements and liquid asphalts are now described in terms
of fundamental units of viscosity. A revised specification was issued, effective
March 1, 1964.
Bituminous-concrete Paving
In January, 1964, a meeting was held with the Heavy Construction Association
of British Columbia to discuss provisions for a revision of Standard Specification
No. 223, " Bituminous" Concrete Paving." The meeting was characterized by a
spirit of goodwill and co-operation in an endeavour to improve the standard and
control of contract paving work in as fair a manner as possible, and several valuable
suggestions and contributions were made by representatives of the association. The
revised -specification was issued March 1, 1964.

 REPORT OF SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER C 33
Granular Surfacing—Base and Sub-base
A draft specification for surfacing, base and sub-base, was prepared in cooperation with the Director of Construction, Director of Location, and Senior
Materials Engineer with a view to consolidating Specification Section 202, " Crushed
Granular Base," and Section 227, " Select Granular Base." This draft was still
under revision at the end of the fiscal year.
Special Design
An extensive programme of testing and design was undertaken by the Branch
in the spring to produce asphalt mixtures meeting the special design requirements
specified by the consulting engineers for Port Mann Bridge deck.
Preliminary Design Work and Testing
Preliminary design and testing work was carried out in all regions to ascertain
suitability of various aggregate sources which might be used for base and pavement
construction in 1964 paving projects. This preliminary work is considered valuable in reducing the contractor's risk when bidding for work and considerably assists
in the planning of projects and preparation of contract provisions. Concurrent with
this work, tests were carried out in Nelson and Prince George to evaluate the different coating and stripping-resistant characteristics of asphalts from various crude
sources when combined with aggregates under test. Preliminary results from these
tests indicated that polar characteristics of asphalts may have a significant bearing
on the stripping of asphalt from various aggregates and the life of pavements.
Further tests may indicate a need for a change in the present methods of evaluating
bids for the supply of asphalt to various projects. The preliminary testing work was
also used for in-service training of future laboratory technicians to be employed on
project work.
Senior Paving Engineer
During the year the Senior Paving Engineer visited Seattle and Tacoma to
study new pavement types and paving techniques. The use of electronic screed
controls was observed and discussed with engineers and contractors. Hot-mixed
seal-coat pavements were studied, leading to the trial use of open-graded carpet-coat
construction on Marine Drive, West Vancouver.
The Senior Paving Engineer also attended the annual general meeting of the
Canadian Technical Asphalt Association, at which he was elected second vice-
president; attended a meeting of the Committee on Road Materials of the Canadian
Government Specification Board to discuss revisions to bituminous-materials specifications; and attended the technical sessions of the annual general meeting of the
Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists, gaining information of immediate
value concerning electronic paver controls and design of slurry seals.

Planning Section
During the past fiscal year, approximately 16.600 acres of reconnaissance-
type mapping was procured for route investigation on the following projects:
(1) Cascade-Christina Lake, Highway No. 395; (2) Midway-Spencer Hill, Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway; (3) Sparwood-Crowsnest, Southern Trans-Provincial
Highway; (4) Tadanac-Trail and Rossland, Highway No. 3a; (5) Grindrod-
Armstrong, Okanagan Highway; (6) Skeena Crossing-Hazelton, Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway.
This mapping was produced from existing photography already in hand taken
by the British Columbia Government or air-photo consultants.
Aerial mapping of a high-order accuracy was obtained for projection layouts
and design on three projects: (1) Fraser River Crossing at Quesnel; (2) Langley
By-pass; (3) Three Valley snowshed area.
 REPORT OF DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER C 45
This mapping was produced from previously procured photography with the
exception of the Three Valley mapping, which was produced by using the relatively
new method of mapping very steep slopes utilizing terrestrial photography.
Reports were prepared and submitted on Golden By-pass (Kootenay-Columbia
Highway), Cascade-Christina Lake (Highway No. 395), and Vernon By-pass
(Okanagan Highway).
Planning studies and preliminary layouts on the following projects were completed in the past year: (1) Alternative scheme, Pitt River-Coquitlam (Lougheed
Highway); (2) Golden By-pass (Kootenay-Columbia Highway); (3) Kamloops
East (Trans-Canada Highway); (4) Cascade-Christina Lake (Highway No. 395);
(5) Vernon By-pass (Okanagan Highway); (6) Nelson Toll Plaza; (7) weigh-
scale site near Flood (Trans-Canada Highway); (8) Premier Mine-Granduc Mine
(photo study of route only); (9) Skeena Crossing-Hazelton (Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway); (10) alternative scheme, Penticton By-pass Okanagan
Highway); (11) Tadanac-Rossland (Southern Trans-Provincial Highway); (12)
design mapping only, Three Valley snowsheds (Trans-Canada Highway).
Planning studies are currently in progress on the following projects: (1) Scott
Road (Surrey Municipality); (2) Lions Gate Bridge, Trans-Canada Highway
(West Vancouver Municipality); (3) Simon Fraser University Access (Burnaby
Municipality); (4) Haney By-pass (Lougheed Highway); (5) Langley By-pass
(Highway No. 10); (6) Sparwood-Crowsnest (Southern Trans-Provincial Highway); (7) Midway-Spencer Hill (Southern Trans-Provincial Highway); (8)
Tadanac-Trail (Southern Trans-Provincial Highway); (9) Grindrod-Armstrong
(Okanagan Highway).
Final contract design and drawings were completed on Vavenby-McMurphy
(North Thompson Highway), Ardwell Road-Swartz Bay (Highway No. 17), Mud-
flat Creek-Seaton (Northern Trans-Provincial Highway), Langley By-pass (Highway No. 10), and are continuing on Golden-Yoho Bridge (Trans-Canada Highway).
Computer Section
During the year the I.B.M. 650 computer was replaced by an I.B.M. 1620.
Testing of the new programmes required increased computer time but reduced the
amount of productive work accomplished. The actual operations performed by the
computers were as follows:—
I.B.M. 650:  D.T.M. II—four projects for a total of 150 miles; Earthwork IV—two projects for a total of 30 miles;  Surmap 02n—18
traverses.
I.B.M. 1620:  D.T.M. Ill—two projects for a total of 25 miles; Surmap
S 13—10 traverses.
The new earthwork programme, which is now operational, has been used so far
only for test projects.   It provides more flexibility of operation and accomplishes six
times as much work as the earthwork programme previously used on the I.B.M. 650
computer.

TESTING BRANCH
The main duties of the Testing Branch are to investigate soil and rock problems
for the other Highway Department branches and to test the materials used for highway purposes.
Son. Mechanics Problems
The Branch endeavours to make a soil survey of every important new highway
during the planning stage. One hundred miles of such surveys made during the
year included the Kicking Horse area on the Trans-Canada Highway, the Blue River
area on the proposed Jasper-Kamloops Highway, and from Chetwynd to Hudson Hope in the Peace River area. In some cases the soils were sampled using
rotary drills, in others portable power-augers, but 30 miles were investigated using
seismic methods.
Since gravel is essential to provide strength or frost resistance to the highways,
possible sources were investigated at the same time. These were tentatively located
from a study of aerial photographs, then confirmed by drilling. For locations where
gravel was scarce or construction work was hampered by wet weather, the Branch
designed portland cement base mixtures, which have generally permitted a saving
in gravel thickness of 50 per cent. One such location was on the Port Mann Freeway, where 10 miles in an area of weak marine clays were treated.
No large landslides occurred during the year, but several smaller problems
were encountered.   In the Prince George area several older highway fills slumped

owing to a gradual weakening by soil-moisture movements. A study showed that
to build stable fills with the local silly soils, various combinations of berms, flat
side-slopes, and gravel foundation drainage blankets would be necessary. On the
Port Mann Freeway a troublesome fill in a zone of weak marine clays was stabilized
by installing a 270-foot-wide berm at the toe of the sliding mass to act as a counterweight.
The Branch prepared foundation designs for 36 highway bridges, the largest
of which, over the Upper Fraser River at McBride, has to be founded where the
soils consist of more than 200 feet of clay with a shear strength of about 600 pounds
per square foot.
An extensive drilling investigation was made at Horseshoe Bay to obtain the
pre-engineering data for proposed extensions to the ferry terminal.
Other investigations were made for two water-supply installations and three
small dams.
The soil investigations for these projects entailed 800 drill-holes aggregating
23,000 feet.
Other Investigations
Engineers from the Branch investigated an unusual problem near Stewart where
the Bear Glacier impounds a mountain lake. Each spring the snow-melt would raise
the lake-level until a sudden break-through occurred in the ice dam, then the torrent
of released water would wash out sections of the Stewart-Cassiar Highway downstream. The remedial action taken was to excavate a deep cut across the toe of the
glacier and draw off the melt-water before a dangerous level was reached.
Each spring the Branch operates a testing programme to assist the District
Engineers in deciding when to impose or lift load restrictions when the frost is leaving the highway subgrades. The strength of the highways at control sections in each
district is computed weekly by measuring with a Benkelman beam the amount that
the weakened surfaces deflect under a standard wheel load. This method determines
the maximum loads that trucks may carry without permanently damaging the highways.
The Branch also semi-annually evaluates the condition of the pavements
throughout the Province. This programme is co-ordinated with similar research
programmes in other Provinces under the direction of the Canadian Good Roads
Association.
Research on soil pressures at culverts and retaining-walls was continued. The
laboratory developed a new type of flat pressure cell made from fibreglass, which is
mounted at selected locations during construction. These cells are filled with an
anti-freeze solution and connected by tubing to Bowden gauges mounted on a consol
at a convenient location. Later, after the installations are backfilled, the soil pressures can be monitored as desired. Gauges were installed on culverts at Dutch
Creek in the Columbia Valley, Bayonne Creek on the Salmo-Creston Highway, and
a retaining-wall at Yale.   The Branch is planning other installations.
During the year, personnel in the headquarters concrete laboratory designed
concrete mixtures to fit the characteristics of local aggregates for 30 bridges and
7 Government buildings throughout the Province. As an additional check on the
quality of the concrete mixtures used in these structures, test cylinders were obtained
during the pouring operation and tested at the nearest regional laboratory.
The headquarters paint laboratory tested paints for motor-vehicle licence-
plates, buildings, highway-marking, and ferries. Experiments showed that licence-
plates could be produced more efficiently by changing the manufacturing process.
Previously the plates were chemically cleaned and painted with several coats follow-

ing the embossing stage, but by changing to sheet steel that was pre-painted at the
steel mill, several operations with their attendant problems were dispensed with.
One large project the Branch undertook was the resurfacing of Lions Gate
Bridge in Vancouver. During its 25 years the concrete deck had worn seriously,
and as one result its slippery condition in wet weather created a serious accident
rate. The problem was to restore its surface without overloading the deck, which,
over spans totalling 2,800 feet, is only 3 inches thick. This ruled out the use of
Portland cement and asphaltic concretes. After extensive tests in the laboratory
and on the bridge, it was decided to apply a V_-inch-thick coat of coal tar epoxy
and emery granules, a relatively new process which had only been used on a few
large bridges in the United States. This mixture had stringent application requirements: the surface had to be scrupulously clean and dry, the materials had to be
mixed and applied within 15 minutes, and the finished surface had to be heat-cured
within a narrow temperature range. The job encountered several substantial obstacles : the contaminated deck was extremely difficult to clean, the construction forces
took some time to acquire the necessary skills for the new process, and a heavy
flow of vehicular traffic had to be maintained. Periodic tests of the adhesion and
frictional properties of the surface are being carried on.
Another project the Branch undertook was to attempt to waterproof two short
tunnels in the Fraser Canyon where stresses following construction had resulted in
leaks during the wet seasons. As an experiment a chemical grout, AM9, was tried,
and its results are being observed.
Training
The Branch published a handbook on the hydraulics, design, and installation
of highway culverts for use by the field engineers.

The Branch co-operated with the Department of Education by supplying an
engineer and several drillers to serve as instructors for a diamond-driller's course
at the Nanaimo Vocational School.
Engineers from the Branch also organized an evening lecture course on soil
mechanics subjects for other engineers in the Government service.
TRAFFIC BRANCH
J. H. Harding, Senior Traffic Engineer
1963 traffic volumes exceeded the 1962 volumes by 29 per cent in Northern
British Columbia, 9 per cent in the Southern Interior, 7 per cent in the Fraser Valley,
and 8 per cent on Vancouver Island.  These volumes were ascertained from short
 C 52 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
counts recorded annually at 700 locations distributed over the Province. Sixteen
new stations of this type were added this year. Daily counts were taken at 14
permanent stations, with one additional site being developed recently. Special
counts were observed at 40 sites where local problems had developed and additional
data were required. A traffic-count volume was published to summarize this information. In addition, many requests for traffic-count information from the public
were answered.
Considerable effort was directed toward highway lighting during the year.
Approximately 450 fluorescent luminaires were installed on the Vancouver—Port
Mann Bridge section of the Trans-Canada Highway. At Whalley the reconstruction
of the King George VI Highway involved the placing of fifty-five 400-watt mercury-
vapour luminaires. Extensive testing and evaluation were done on various designs
of fluorescent rail-lighting fixtures for the Port Mann Bridge to enable a decision on
the particular type of fixture. The completed lighting system on this bridge constitutes the largest installation of its type in North America and represents the first
trial in British Columbia of this design. Lighting was placed on the Ashcroft Bridge
and at various intersections, railway crossings, and bridge approaches. Considerable work was spent on the design of lighting for the Yale, Alexandra, and Ferrabee
tunnels in the Fraser Canyon, together with luminaire evaluations.
Along the King George VI Highway at Whalley, a system of five co-ordinated
actuated traffic signals was constructed. Volumes of traffic in each direction along
the highway are ascertained and fed into a master controller consisting of two small
analog computers which determine and assign the optimum timing for the existing
traffic condition to each intersection controller. The design of a lane-use signal
system for Lions Gate Bridge and adjacent roadway through Stanley Park was instigated. Four flashing beacons and nine new traffic signals were made in addition to
minor alterations to signals at various intersections. Eight railway crossings on
Provincial highways were signalized during the year in co-operation with the Board
of Transport Commissioners. Investigations and reports were made on many
requests for traffic signals at various sites.
During the year seven map-type directional signs were erected near major
highway junctions. Freeway directional signing was designed and installed on the
Vancouver-Port Mann Bridge section of the Trans-Canada Highway. Numerous
changes were made to speed-limits throughout the Province. Radar speed checks
taken at a number of points were useful to ensure that posted speed-limits were
realistic. A number of intersection problems were investigated, and improvements
designed and installed in several cases.
The Senior Traffic Engineer continued to represent the Department on the
British Columbia Safety Council, Capital Region Planning Board, and the Canadian
Good Roads Association Council on Uniform Traffic Control Services for Canada.

REPORT OF THE CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
During the 1963/64 fiscal year a total of 625 settlements was negotiated. One
claim was submitted to arbitration proceedings for adjudication.
The expenditure for rights-of-way and for other properties acquired by the
Department totalled $1,033,678.62. This included holdings purchased on behalf
of the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges Authority.
There were 15 sales by public tender or public auction of lands which were
surplus to highway requirements and of buildings to be cleared from rights-of-way,
with a recovery of funds totalling $7,602.29. Gross revenue from rentals, which
included rentals prior to disposal of lands and buildings, totalled $63,021.09.

 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES C 55
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
Fifty-two ferries were operated under the jurisdiction of the Department of
Highways during the 1963/64 fiscal year. Of these, 12 were Government-owned
major ferries, 14 were Government-owned cable ferries, 15 were Government-owned
reaction ferries, and 7 were privately owned subsidized ferries. There were also
4 Government-owned miscellaneous ferries.
TRAFFIC
Traffic total for the year showed that 2,008,692 vehicles and 5,087,565 passengers were carried. This represents a decrease of 33,934 vehicles and 141,238
passengers over the preceding year. The Castlegar Ferry carried 887,656 vehicles
and 1,195,378 passengers, which amounts were far in excess of the totals carried
by any other ferry.
MAINTENANCE
All ferries were inspected during the year, and necessary repairs and renewals
were carried out with a minimum of inconvenience to the travelling public. Wherever possible, relief ferries were used during overhaul periods. All major ferries
were dry-docked during this period.
NEW CONSTRUCTION AND MAIOR RENEWALS
Delta District.—A new 36-foot steel tug was built for the Barnston Island Ferry
to replace the old wooden tug. A new landing is being built on Barnston Island
for this ferry.
North Peace River District.—New propulsion machinery was installed in the
Hudson Hope Ferry.
Comox District.—A new breakwater and landing has been built on Denman

 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF COMMUNICATIONS C 59
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF
COMMUNICATIONS
During the year the communication network in the West Kootenay was rerouted to give adequate communication over new highway routes, and three remote
sites were developed in this connection. Communication was also extended from
New Denver into the Nakusp area.
A site was developed near Cache Creek to give more adequate highway
coverage and to enable a communication extension into the Pemberton area. Communication was also extended from Squamish north to the Pemberton area.
A repeater was installed near Prince Rupert to cover district highways and to
establish communication to the Queen Charlotte Islands.
Stations were established at Cache Creek and Hope for traffic-control purposes
on the Fraser Canyon section of the Trans-Canada Highway.
Some 127 mobile units were added to the system.
Design work was undertaken and completed on a battery-operated repeater
running off a thermal generator fired by propane. These units have no moving
parts and, being housed in fibreglass buildings, are capable of a lift into position by
helicopter on any mountain site. Three of these units are presently in operation on
site and provide communications between Williams Lake and Anahim, Prince
George and McBride, and from Revelstoke into the Trout Lake country.
Antenna de-icing equipment designed by the Department has been an unqualified success in eliminating outages due to ice conditions, and these units are being
installed at all mountain sites where this problem exists.
Preliminary radio surveys were undertaken on the Stewart-Cassiar Road from
the Yukon Border to Stewart and on the North Thompson Highway from Kamloops
to Tete Jaune Cache.
Co-operation with other departments continued during the year, and our sites
are being made available to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canadian National
Railways, West Kootenay Power and Light Company, British Columbia Forest
Service, British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority, Civil Defence, and British
Columbia Telephone Company.
W. F. Conlan,
Superintendent of Communications.

SAFETY PROMOTION
A greater effort must be put into the promotion and practice of safety in most
regions and districts if a generally improved frequency and severity rate is to be
reflected. The minutes of the meetings of the District Accident Prevention Committee reflect a sustained interest in the subject-matter, but closer checking and
follow-up on recommendations is indicated.
Fifteen crews qualified for bronze safety awards during the year, seven crews
qualified for silver awards, and the Albion Ferry crew qualified for a gold award.
The Co-ordinator of Accident Prevention has worked in close liaison with all
regions and districts.
There were six fatal accidents in the reporting year. One employee fell from
the First Narrows Bridge; a member of a survey crew was electrocuted; one man
was killed by a vehicle passing on the highway at high speed; another employee
was burned to death when gasoline which was being siphoned into a tank was
ignited; a tractor overturned on an employee; and another employee died of
asphyxia in a repeater station.
The Interdepartmental Safety Committee held 16 meetings to examine reports
of accidents involving Government-owned motor-vehicles. Good attendance at the
meetings was generally the case and willing co-operation given by the members, for
which the Chairman expresses his thanks to the members.
J. A. Lonsbury,
Insurance and Safety Officer.
 C 62 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL OFFICER
POSITION COMPETITIONS
The Civil Service Commission posted 28 Departmental competitions, and this
office posted 34 internal competitions.
APPLICATIONS
A total of 1,148 applications was received and processed.
PROMOTIONS
Most important promotion during the year was that of Mr. D. D. Godfrey,
from Regional Highway Engineer, North Vancouver, to Chief Engineer, Victoria.
JOB EVALUATIONS
There were 12 job reviews conducted by this office, all resulting in reclassification.
SAFETY
Regional Safety Officers appointed for the forthcoming year were Mr. R. B.
Gilmour, Chilliwack (Region 1); Mr. H. Francis, Kamloops (Region 2); Mr.
W. M. Sproul, Nelson (Region 3); and Mr. G. R. Kent, Vanderhoof (Region 4).
ORGANIZATION
The Paving Branch, formerly under the Director of Construction, was separated, Mr. J. W. G. Kerr becoming the Branch head with direct responsibility to the
Chief Engineer.
TRAINING
There has been great interest created by our Regional Highway Engineers in
workshop procedures of training. All regions conducted foreman workshops, which
are providing greater technical knowledge and understanding of Departmental activities and functions.
The engineer-in-training programme is proceeding at a steady pace, and we
are gradually producing a good number of professional engineers who have obtained
a practical knowledge of all operations within the Department.
MANUAL OF PERSONNEL ADMINISTRATION
A new manual was completed in the year with a new format, enabling the field
to provide more efficient local personnel administration. Mr. A. R. Limacher,
Regional Office Manager, Prince George, was responsible for the extensive detailed
work required to produce the manual and is to be highly complimented for his
dedicated and sincere efforts on behalf of the Department.
H. C. Davies,
Personnel Officer.

 REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER C 79
REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
Another very successful year has been completed by the Maintenance Branch.
The total expenditure tor all maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries
amounted to $19,443,167. This was an increase of $1,567,622 over the previous
year's expenditures.
Over 19,000 miles of roads were kept open during the winter and maintained
during the remainder of the year. This mileage is being increased each year, with
the addition of roads in subdivisions, access roads, and the construction of new
main routes. Last winter we added the new Salmo-Creston route, with its 5,800-
foot summit. This route is an extremely important link in our highway system, and,
except for very minor closures due to snowslides or heavy snow, it remained open
all winter. Over 500 inches of snow fell on this pass. We also experienced extremely heavy snowfalls on the Allison Pass, Rogers Pass, Blueberry—Paulson Highway, and John Hart Highway, but these were kept open with the Departmental-
designed equipment, which surely proved itself. Besides keeping the roads clear
of snow through the use of chemicals, we have been able to keep most of the main
highways ice-free for a good portion of the winter.
Summer maintenance of both roadway and roadsides has increased and improved in quality. The asphalt-patching school was expanded, with one being held
at Vernon as well as at Courtenay. The growth of weeds and brush was kept in
check with increased labour and equipment, and with a greatly increased amount
of sterilants and weed and brush killers.
With the coming of the freeways, the roadside maintenance chore of mowing
of rights-of-way has increased tremendously, and we have had to expand our
mowing fleet.
To combat dust on side roads and on main roads not already paved, we have
expanded the use of dust-layers for the convenience of the travelling public, crop-
growers, and residents.
Our radio network continues to be of great help in fast communication and
proper administration, and we are continuing to expand the network and to improve
the coverage in spotty areas. Service during the winter operations has been vastly
improved by the radio network.
Our bridge crews, located in each district, continued to maintain all bridges
in a satisfactory condition and, where required, to carry out reconstruction. Where
possible, bridges are replaced by culverts in a continuing programme.
There is an increasing demand for improvements to side roads because of the
increased traffic on them. In most cases the reconstruction or minor betterments on
these roads are carried out by Departmental forces in a day-labour programme,
amounting to $6,000,000 in the last fiscal year.
Also, with increased traffic and up-to-date facilities such as freeways and interchanges, we have had to take on an increasing load of traffic lights and general intersection lighting. Besides the chore of mechanical repairs to the traffic lights and
bulb replacements, we also have the fixed charges of electrical-power costs to bear.
These are all being taken care of out of our maintenance budget.
Generally speaking, I am extremely pleased with the work that has been done
in the past by the maintenance crews, and with improved methods, supervision, and
machinery, we can look forward to even better-maintained roads in the years to
come.
J. A. Dennison,
Senior Maintenance Engineer.

(J. W. Nelson, Regional Highway Engineer, Kamloops)
Cariboo (South),  Kamloops,  Lillooet (North),   North Okanagan,   Revelstoke,
Salmon Arm, Similkameen, South Okanagan, and Yale Electoral Districts
Cariboo (South) District
Roads
Maintenance.—A better surface was maintained on the Cariboo Highway by
continuous patching until freeze-up.
A higher standard of work on gravel and dirt roads was helped by a dry
summer. This included extensive ditching, culvert installation, brushing, and
gravelling.
An irrigation dam on Doctors Lake broke and washed out the Chilcotin Highway at Pablo Creek.   Traffic was interrupted for 20 hours.
Construction.—On the Cariboo Highway, truck-lane approaches were built
to the new 100 Mile Overhead.
Widening from Mile 76 to Mile 97 was completed in preparation for repaving.
On the Chilcotin Highway the Sword Creek Hill relocation of the Western
approach to the Fraser River was cleared and grubbed.
Four and four-tenths miles of Canim Lake Road No. 318 and 2.5 miles of
Lake Road No. 252 were reconstructed, as were a further 14.1 miles of sundry
roads.   In addition, major improvements were made on 37 miles of road.
Paving.—The Exeter Station Road was road-mixed for its length of 2.1 miles.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was Ught, except in the Likely and Anahim Lake
areas. Some 440 inches of snow feU west of Anahim. Above-normal temperatures caused icing conditions, which continued our trend toward the use of considerably greater amounts of sand and chemicals each year.
Bridges
The 100 Mile Overpass, eliminating the P.G.E. level crossing on the Cariboo
Highway, was completed. Minor bridges Meldrum No. 2 (No. 375), Swift Creek
No. 2 (No. 416), Swift Creek No. 3 (No. 426), and Whitehorse Creek (No. 516)
were replaced with new structures. Normal maintenance and repairs were carried
out on other bridges.
Kamloops District
Roads
Trunk and Main Highways.—General maintenance was carried out on aU
trunk and main highways. Special emphasis was placed on patching, sign maintenance, shoulder restoration, and general right-of-way " housekeeping."
Records of costs of maintenance by sections were continued and sent to the
Design and Planning Engineer for comparison with other years and study. We
had a great number of snowfaUs, which necessitated continual ploughing, sanding,
and chemical appUcations. The use of chemical proved satisfactory and brought
about bare pavement in a relatively short time after a freeze. There were no load
restrictions on the Trans-Canada Highway; however, during a short period overload
permits were rescinded.
Other Highways and Roads.—Routine maintenance was carried out on other
roads.   Our programme of trying to coat many of our busier roads with gravel to
 C 90 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
eliminate the dust problem was accelerated. SnowfaUs were heavy, but at no time
were school-bus routes not opened within a four-hour period. We had one of the
best spring break-ups to date, and none of the roads were restricted other than for
legal loads.
Day-labour Construction.—On the North Thompson Highway 1.6 mUes were
constructed to standard and 5.3 nules were graveUed and repaired for pulvimixing.
The pulvimixing was carried out by the headquarters crew and completed. Between
Blue River and Albreda 5.5 miles were improved by reaUgnment and gravelling.
On the Highland VaUey Road the remaining 3 miles were completed (except
for the approach to Ashcroft Bridge) and 26 miles were gravelled and pulvimixed
in record time.
Sundry Roads.—A considerable amount of slashing, widening, ditching, and
spot gravelling was carried out on approximately 60 nules of roads. Bunker B oil
was appUed to aU gravel subdivision roads in VaUeyview, Brocklehurst, Westsyde,
Powers Addition, Barriere, Clearwater, and Blue River. Road-mix pavement was
laid on 6.5 nules of other subdivision roads.
Bridges
AU bridges were inspected to determine replacement and repair requirements.
The following bridges were redecked, complete with cross-ties, and stringers
checked and replaced as required: Berwick Creek (No. 20), CampbeU Creek,
Canyon No. 2 (No. 42), Deadman No. 3 (No. 79), Deadman No. 6 (No. 82),
Dunn Creek (No. 86), Kulston Creek (No. 125), Last Chance Creek (No. 127),
SnowbaU Creek (No. 193), Spahats Creek (No. 194), Blue River (No. 125),
Jamieson Creek (No. 118).
Two bridges were reconstructed—CampbeU Creek No. 4 (No. 37) and White-
wood Creek (No. 208), which was raised 8 feet to tie in with the new road grade
and alignment. The landscaping and general approach work to Overlanders Bridge
(No. 208) was completed, and concrete slabs were poured under the overpass to
stabilize the slopes.
Ferries
AU ferries were checked, painted, and ramps repaired or replaced where
necessary. There were short interruptions in service during high water and icing
conditions.
Lillooet (North) District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on aU district roads. A
self-contained unit was used for weed-burning on the right-of-way, this consisting
of a truck mounting a spray bar and tanks and the fuel being ignited and sprayed
out of four jets along the bar.   This method proved successful.
Large amounts of rock were cleared off the " Big SUde " area, 12 rrdles south
of LUlooet.   Many sUdes were also cleared along the LUlooet-Pioneer Highway.
Construction and Surfacing.—There were 3.8 miles of road surfaced by blade
mix on Highway No. 12, 17 miles south of LUlooet, climaxing heavy construction
of this section over the past three years. A further 1 _ miles of road were advanced
on the Bralorne-Pemberton route. One nule of the Back VaUey Road along Cache
Creek was reconstructed to by-pass two smaU bridges.
Some 40,000 cubic yards of sUde material were taken off the Six MUe SUde
south of Clinton on the Cariboo Highway.
"1
J
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 91
Reconstruction.—Eighteen nules of road were realigned and regraveUed
throughout the district, some 2 miles of this being fairly heavy rock work on the
Pemberton-D'Arcy Road. Five nules of Green Lake Road were straightened and
regraveUed. ReaUgnment and some paving were done on the Clinton and LUlooet
subdivision streets.
Snow Removal.—LUlooet District had three times the amount of snowfaE over
the previous few years.   This necessitated considerable overtime expenditure.
Bridges
Four new bridges were built during the year. One was on the Upper Hat
Creek Road; another was on the LiUooet-Cache Creek Highway at GUlon Creek,
this bridge removing a washout problem; and another bridge of some 130 feet span
was on the LiUooet-Seton Lake Road, being buUt in conjunction with the Forest
Service. Another new bridge was built over Cinnabar Creek in the Gold Bridge
area, this being for the Department of Mines and Petroleum Resources.
Ferries
The Big Bar reaction ferry continues handling aU manner of traffic, from sheep
to hunters, a cage on the cable being used during winter tie-up.
North Okanagan District
Roads
Maintenance.—We have been able to maintain a high standard of maintenance
throughout the district. The brushing programme has been continued along with
shouldering and burning. AU curves on Highways Nos. 97, 97a, and 97b considered
hazardous for night driving have now been delineated. Patching crews have been
extremely busy maintaining a good standard of patching.
On June 29, 1963, we lost a section of Highway No. 6 at Heckman Creek
due to a serious land-sUp. DriU crews were brought in and test-holes driUed to
determine the source of the trouble. We have since made an effort to stabiUze the
slide area, and it appears to be successful at this time.
Snow Removal.—Although snowfaU was weU above the 10-year average, we
were able to maintain a good standard of maintenance and service. The Monashee
Pass section of Highway No. 6 was maintained, with the added help of a buUdozer
for widening.
Construction.—Improvements were carried out on 16.95 mUes of road, and
of this total 9.45 mUes were paved by pulvimix and the balance of 7.5 miles by
road mix.
Bridges
One smaU and one major timber bridge were completely renewed, and two
other bridges were replaced by multi-plate pipe culverts on a bridge-elimination
programme. Major repairs were made to a 123-foot timber bridge with open deck,
and general maintenance was carried out on several others.
Revelstoke District
Roads
District Roads.—Maintenance crews concentrated on various side roads, ditching, gravelling, etc., and snow was removed from the sides of roads.   The Revel-
 C 92 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
stoke-Arrowhead Road was widened, and major gravelling and ditching undertaken;
calcium chloride was used on this road for dust control.
Trans-Canada Highway.—-A portion of the Trans-Canada Highway—Sica-
mous east, totalling 5 mUes—was prepared for seeding. AU snow-removal maintenance was worked out on a three 8-hour shift system with minor closures on the
Trans-Canada Highway resulting from slope slides and snowsUdes. Except for.
SUver Creek SUde area, no exceptional maintenance on sUdes was required. The
Highways Department maintained aU snow removal through Revelstoke National
Park, and the Parks Board maintained from Albert Canyon easterly.
Day-labour Construction.—Work was continued on the reconstruction of the
Galena Pass Road. The Solsqua-Sicamous Road was relocated, and construction
started on 2.23 nules. On Highway No. 97a, 0.47 mUe from the intersection of
Trans-Canada Highway south was constructed.
Bridges
Major construction was carried out on Goldstream (No. 89), Spikers Creek
(No. 69), Eagle River (No. 323) at Sicamous, and Turn Turn (No. 351) bridges.
Two new bridges were constructed—namely, Crawford Creek (No. 427) and

district.   Weed and brush kiUer was appUed on the Trans-Canada Highway.
A special pavement-patching crew was formed, and methods of patching upgraded considerably.
On November 26, 1963, heavy rains and high temperatures caused extensive
storm damage and flooding on the Trans-Canada and Hope—Princeton Highways,
as weU as on side roads in the Hope area, principaUy on the SUver Skagit Road
(No. 150). Short delays were in effect whUe debris was cleared away. On December 23, 1963, once again rain and high temperatures caused a reoccurrence of the
November conditions, with the addition of numerous smaU sUdes, which caused
minor delays. It took three months to complete clearing and mopping-up operations.
SnowfaU was triple the amount of the previous year, and icing conditions were
severe. No road closures were experienced, and numerous letters of appreciation
were received from the pubUc.
Forty thousand lineal feet of guard-raU were painted on the Trans-Canada

garage.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance, including pavement patching, grading,
culvert instaUation, and minor ditching, was carried out on aU district roads.
Dust-laying measures were carried out on a similar basis to last year due to the
increased number of subdivision roads and area growth in outlying districts.
Spring break-up conditions were normal.
Construction.—Some gravel was placed on Highway No. 93, Fort Steele-
Eager HUl project, and the balance of the rock was blasted and removed.
Approximately 1.3 miles of reconstruction were completed on Highway No. 95
south of WycUffe Bridge.   It is now ready for road-mix pavement.
Road-mix pavement was laid on the Green Bay, Pinecrest Subdivision, Munroe

between Hosmer and Olson Crossing was widened to a width of 48 feet between
shoulders.
A total of 14.3 mUes of seal-coating was carried out on various roads.
Snow Removal.—An extra heavy snowfaU was experienced this season, with
198 inches at Fernie and 204 inches at Hosmer. The snow came early in November
and continued through the season. In spite of the heavy snowfaU the usual wet
snowslide did not occur at Morrissey, which must be attributed to the early snow
cover, which prevented frost from penetrating the ground and the lack of the usual
heavy rains in December and January.
Bridges
Sheep Creek Bridge No. 2 was rebuilt, and Morrissey Bridge was strengthened
with a running deck, and two pony bents were instaUed to withstand heavy logging
traffic.
AU other bridges were maintained satisfactorily.

Grand Forks, Christina Lake, Midway, and Greenwood areas.
Snow Removal.—AU district roads were kept open and weU sanded. SnowfaU
was higjher than the average over the past eight years and considerably higher than
last year, resulting in an increase in the ploughing and sanding required. A number
of snowsUdes occurred on the Christina-Kinnaird section of the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway in the late spring but caused no serious traffic delays.
 G 98 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64

late night periods, when the usual motor repairs were necessary. New wedge ramps
were placed on the Needles approaches and the aprons modified to suit.
Nelson-Creston District
Roads
Maintenance.—Maintenance was carried out on all district roads. Particular
emphasis was placed on skin patching to improve the riding quaUty and extend
service life of older pavements. Air-powered rotary saws were purchased for
slashing right-of-way, and greatly accelerated this phase of the maintenance opera-
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 99
tion. Extensive ditch-cleaning was required on the newly constructed portions of
the Salmo-Creston Cut-off. Shouldering work was carried out on the Salmo-
Fruitvale, Nelson-Castlegar, and Nelson—Balfour Highways.
Construction.—A further mile of the Beasley section of Highway No. 3a was
completed and opened for traffic. Two nules of the Goatfell section of Highway
No. 3 were reconstructed.    Improvements were carried out on sundry roads.
Snow Removal.—Frequent snowfaUs and the opening of the Salmo-Creston
Cut-off resulted in increased snow-removal costs. Despite numerous snowsUdes
and a snowfaU in excess of 500 inches, maintenance crews working on multiple
shifts from the South Fork Camp and from Creston were able to keep the Salmo-
Creston section open during the winter. Minor delays resulted from the snowsUdes.
Demands for sanding service at lower elevations were heavy because of frequent
snowfaUs and mild temperatures.
Bridges
Maintenance was carried out on all bridges in the district. The bridge across
the Salmo River at Porcupine was reconstructed. The Corn Creek Bridge and the
Twin Bridge on the West Creston Road were reconstructed. The Goat River Bridge
was redecked.   Rykerts Bridge was replaced with a culvert and fill.
Ferries
Ferry operation during the year was routine with a few exceptions. Considerable difficulty was experienced with the drive mechanism on the Harrop ferry.
The Kootenay Lake ferries were operated on a 50-minute schedule during the
summer months. Fares were removed from the Kootenay Lake ferries on November 1, 1963.
Rossland-Trail District
Roads
Reconstruction and road-mix paving were completed on 1.3 mUes of the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway at Fruitvale.
Ditching, shoulder-widening, base-strengthening, and extensive pavement repairs were carried out between Beaver Creek Bridge in Fruitvale to the district
boundary near Ross Spur.
Road-mix pavement was laid on several mUes of subdivision roads at Blueberry, GeneUe, and Riverdale. Three mUes of side roads were reconstructed and
paved.
Snow Removal.—A heavier than usual snowfall, worse ice conditions, an
increase in traffic volume, and demand for service increased winter snow-removal
costs over the previous year. Increased subdivision mUeage with a new highway
between Christina Lake and Kinnaird also increased winter costs considerably.
Ferries
A below normal run-off aUowed continuous service with only minor delays.
Bridges
The Dog Creek Bridge at Renata was completely rebuUt, using log stringers
and rock-fiUed cribs.   Big Cayuse was completely rebuUt, using native log stringers
and cribs.
 C 100 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
Wooden sidewalk attached to the C.P.R. bridge in Castlegar was replaced by
a new walk of the same design.
The bridge crew also constructed a concrete dam at Murphy Creek on the
new Rossland-Sheep Lake Highway.
Buildings
At Castlegar the construction of a shop buUding was completed, the utilities
installed, and a start was made on fencing the yard.
At Rossland, property has been purchased to reheve congestion in the yard
there.   A buUding was constructed for the storage of salt and calcium chloride.
REGION No. 4
(R. G. Harvey, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George)
Atlin, Cariboo (North), Fort George, North Peace River, Omineca, Prince Rupert,
Skeena, and South Peace River Electoral Districts
Atlin (North) District
Normal maintenance was carried out at Atlin and Telegraph Creek throughout
the year. However, at Good Hope Lake the road crews are only able to work at
approximately 60 per cent efficiency due to the great distances that have to be covered since more and more of the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway is taken over from
the Construction Branch.
Yearly mucking-out of the ditches due to sloughing backslopes has been required in the past few years. The district feels the need for the establishment of a
new camp at the south end of Dease Lake to be of the utmost importance.
Many tourists and prospectors use the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway, and
the ferry at the Stikine River has been kept busy. The district has built cabins to
house the ferry crew for the summer season.
The road beyond the Cassiar Mine Road is not kept open during the winter,
nor is that from Dease Lake to Telegraph Creek.
Atlin (South) District
Increased logging and mining activity in the district, and particularly in the
Alice Arm area, required a stepped-up maintenance programme. Numerous rock
points were widened and gravelled, culverts replaced and some river bank protection
work undertaken.
WhUe snowfaU was very heavy in the Stewart area Uttle difficulty was experienced in meeting the public's demands.
A part of the new yard-site at Stewart was cleared and materials for fencing
purchased.
Cariboo (North) District
Roads
Road Maintenance.—Routine maintenance was carried out on aU district roads.
An extensive programme was carried out on the shoulders of the Cariboo Highway.
Catch basins and shoulder washouts were repaired and shoulders reshaped. Guard-
raU was repainted.

On the BarkervUle Road, improvements were carried out on 7.7 mUes, of which
2.1 roUes were pulvimixed and 2.1 mUes were prepared for pulvimix.
On the Quesnel-Hixon Road, 3.5 mUes were reconstructed and gravelled, of
which 1.1 miles were pulvimixed.
On the Fraser Road the Dead Horse Bluff section was reconstructed.
Snow Removal.—SnowfaU was lighter than average, but mUd temperatures
necessitated an increased sanding operation.
Bridges
The concrete piers for the Spehar Bridge were completed, and steel stringers
erected on stage construction.
Ferries
An approach float for the Soda Creek ferry was buUt, and one for the GraveUe
ferry was reconstructed. Two new life-boats were buUt for the Marguerite and Soda
Creek ferries.
Fort George District
Roads
Maintenance.—A reasonably good spring break-up aided the general condition
of the roads throughout the summer. Normal maintenance was carried out on all
roads. An appreciable amount of high-grading and graveUing on the North Thompson Highway from Tete Jaune to Albreda has eliminated most of the spring break-up
problems in that area. The McBride-Crescent Spur winter road had a good season,
and service was extended to Dome Creek.
Construction.—The day-labour programme on the John Hart Highway followed by paving contracts brought this highway into good condition.
Rock work along Eagle Lake at Giscome made a marked improvement to this
piece of road. Intermittent sections of Highway No. 16 east of McBride were high-
graded and graveUed.
Several Lands Service access roads were constructed.
Snow Removal.—An exceptionaUy heavy snowfaU was recorded north and east
of Prince George, with readings of 135 inches at Aleza Lake, 257 inches at McLeod
Lake, and 651 inches at the Pine Pass summit.
Bridges
A new bridge was built at Giscome. Six bridges on the John Hart Highway
were replaced by culverts and fiUs.
Ferries
The Isle Pierre ferry operated until January, when the channel became frozen.
The Hansard ferry operated throughout the summer and fall, and with traffic
being extremely heavy a double shift seven days a week was required.
North Peace River District
The 1962/63 winter was not exceedingly cold, but there was an unusually
heavy snowfall; also numerous weather changes caused bad ice conditions on the
roads.
 C 102 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
The spring break-up was severe. Heavy rains in the autumn saturated the
watersheds, and, consequently, when the rapid spring thaw took place, aU run-off
came at one time, causing many washouts. As a result, three large culverts were
replaced with bridges and numerous culverts had to be reinstalled. The remaining
break-up damage is stiU being repaired.
Further, with the B.C. Hydro project at Hudson Hope, it was necessary that
the access road from Fort St. John receive heavy maintenance, consisting of gravelling with pit-run during the spring operations and later resurfacing with crushed
gravel.
There were also reconstructed and graveUed numerous sections of farm and
settlement roads in the Fort St. John area; also graveUing was done on school-bus
routes.
The Department undertook and completed the foUowing works for British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority: Construction and gravelling 4 nules of road
being access to its project lookout, construction and graveUing one-half mUe of subdivision road, and construction of the base on the Hudson Hope Airport.
For the Department of Mines and Petroleum Resources at Fort Nelson, the
district constructed and graveUed approximately 2_ mUes of road from the Fort
Nelson River Bridge to the Kotcho Lake Road; also slash was burned along approximately 4Vi nules of the Fort Nelson Bridge access right-of-way.
The district replaced two piers destroyed by spring ice and driftwood and
erected four ice-breakers on the Fort Nelson River Bridge, also for the Department
of Mines and Petroleum Resources.
The district installed approximately one-half mUe of storm sewer on Mackenzie
Street and Centre Avenue, Fort St. John, and constructed approximately 1 mUe of
a 10-foot average depth drainage ditch to carry water from the newly instaUed storm
sewer to a nearby creek.
Furthermore and consequent to the heavy run-off in the spring of 1963, the
Fish Creek fiU, located at the north boundary of Fort St. John, was damaged, and,
before replacement could be made, necessitated construction of a 2.8-mUe combined
detour and Fort St. John by-pass, which was constructed and graveUed in February
and March of this year.
Omineca (East) District
Roads
Maintenance. — Normal maintenance was carried out on aU district roads
throughout the year, including considerable brushing and right-of-way clean-up on
the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. The programme of upgrading side roads
by minor reconstruction was continued. Shale surfacing was again appUed to several mUes of the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road.
Construction.—Two nules of the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road were widened
and realigned to standard, pit-run and crushed gravel applied, and the surface pulvimixed.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall generaUy was about average, but very heavy in the
northern part of the district.   Weather was mUd, with heavy demand for ice control.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on aU district bridges. Reconstruction
of the Necoslie Bridge was completed, and a log-stringer bridge was buUt at Sylvester Creek, replacing the King truss.

 regional reports c 103
Omineca (West) District
Roads
Maintenance.—An average break-up was experienced throughout the district.
Heavy rainfall in early July caused considerable damage to road surfaces, especiaUy
in the eastern portion of the district, causing curtaUment of aU project and ditching
operations. A further 15 miles of brush control was successfully conducted on the
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. Patching, graveUing, and sign maintenance
were carried out throughout the district on a routine basis.
Construction. — Two sections of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway—
Houston east and Tintagel-Tibbett Creek (total, 6.8 mUes)—were pulvimixed and
completed by early summer. A total of 8.2 nules on the CoUeymount Road (No.
21) was ditched and graveUed. Telkwa Secondary Road (No. 136b) was ditched
and improved on a joint project with the Village of Telkwa. Ditching, shoulder-
widening, and minor improvements were conducted by Department forces along a
20-mUe section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway from Rose Lake to Perow
in conjunction with a paving project.
Snow Removal.—An above average snowfaU was experienced in most areas of
the district. Persistent Ught snowfaU increased the demand for snow-ploughing
services, especiaUy on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. The demand for
sanding operations was about average. Chemicals did not prove too successful due
to increased snowfaU and low temperatures.
Bridges
Maintenance was conducted on aU bridges throughout the district with extensive repairs carried out on Quick (No. 97) and Walcott (No. 128), two older structures over the Bulkley River.
Ferries
The Francois Lake ferry M.V. " Jacob Henkel" experienced a general increase
of traffic throughout the year. Service was suspended for the usual 2 V_-week period
in the spring for engine overhaul and refit. The docks received routine maintenance
and also were completely painted. The causeway at the Southbank wharf was completed and paved.
Buildings
The exterior of the Houston garage, dry-shed, and oU-shed and the interior of
the Burns Lake garage were completely repainted. A new roof over the annex of
the Burns Lake garage was completed.
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance.—No difficulty was experienced in maintaining roads in the Prince
Rupert and Queen Charlotte areas, with the exception of a period of exceedingly
high tides which temporarily disrupted services in the vicinity of Masset.
New gravel surfacing was applied to 4.3 mUes of road on the Queen Charlotte
Islands.
Construction.—A causeway, 0.25 mUe in length, utilizing culverts with flap
gates, was constructed to replace Delkatla Bridge in the viUage of Masset.
 C 104 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
In the City of Prince Rupert the Alaska Ferry approach road was reconstructed
and widened to four lanes.
Snow Removal.—Heavy snowfall and severe icing conditions, particularly on
the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, extended the capacity of both men and
avaUable equipment to near their limits. Twenty-one feet of snow feU on the
summit, 8 feet of which feU during the month of March.

AU bridges received routine cleaning and any necessary repairs.

Port Clements yard-site was extended further by clearing. A new exhaust
system was instaUed in the Prince Rupert garage.
Skeena (East) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out during the year. The
gravelling of the Mud Creek section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was
completed in preparation for paving. Other day-labour work included base-strengthening and pulvimixing on Highway No. 16 from Carnaby to Skeena Crossing,
reconstruction of a 3-mUe section of Kispiox Road, and reaUgnment and genera-
improvements on the Babine Road.
Snow Removal.—SnowfaU was considerably heavier this year, averaging 30
inches more than the previous winter. The additional snow along with an extended
winter added considerably to costs. Straight chemicals were used for the first time
in the populated areas around Smithers and Hazelton, with results varying from
fair to good.   Spring break-up in the area was not severe.
Bridges
Routine maintenance was carried out on aU bridges. Six structures were completely reconstructed by the district crew.
Ferries
The reaction ferries at Cedarvale and Kitwanga provided normal service from
AprU through to October. An aerial basket was instaUed at Cedarvale for pedestrian
passengers during the winter months. New landing pontoons were constructed during the winter months at both sites.
Skeena (West) District
Roads
Maintenance.—District roads were maintained in fair condition all year. Spring
load restrictions were applied AprU 1st and rescinded AprU 25th. Damage during
break-up was light. Summer was relatively dry, and aU graveUed roads received
extensive gravel. In October and November, 12 mUes of pulvimix pavement on
Highway No. 25 broke up badly and required extensive repairs and maintenance.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 105
Day-labour Construction.—A 5-mUe road-construction project was undertaken
in October to provide access from the Kitimat Indian Village to Minette Bay. This
work which was through heavy soUd rock, continued aU winter.
Snow Removal.—SnowfaU was relatively heavy throughout the district, with a
220-inch total faU at Kitimat and also at a point 30 mUes west of Terrace. District
forces were hard put several times to keep roads open. SnowsUdes on Highway
No. 16 west of Terrace blocked the highway 14 times for periods up to four hours
at a time.
Bridges
The deck systems on a number of Howe-truss bridges were replaced. The
Terrace Bridge was completely redecked from the steel stringers up. Shames, Ex-
stew, and Zimacord Bridges were redecked. Brauns Island Bridge was replaced by
a BaUey bridge.
Ferries
Ferries were in service until December, when they were beached due to low
water and floating ice. They were not returned to service before the end of the
fiscal year.
South Peace River District
Roads
Maintenance.—LiteraUy hundreds of culverts were blocked with ice due to
alternating freezing and thawing temperatures during the winter months. Combined
with an unusuaUy heavy run-off as a result of the heavy snowfaU, numerous washouts and extensive flooding of roads resulted. The first two or three months of the
year were spent repairing damages to roads resulting from these flood conditions.
Where necessary, pavement-patching was carried out, and an extensive programme of crack-fUling was completed on aU paved highways in the district.
A total of 65.5 miles of side roads was high-graded, with culverts instaUed.
An extensive programme of signing on highways and side roads was carried
out.
A programme of weed-spraying was in effect on right-of-way in farming areas,
and a brush-spraying programme was carried out, mainly on trunk highways.
Construction.—An 11-nule section of the John Hart Highway, from MUe 138
to MUe 149 (SUver Sands Creek), was reconstructed, including widening, drainage
improvements, and the application of base gravel, in preparation for paving.
Reconstruction was partiaUy completed on the John Hart Highway from MUe
149 to MUe 158. This work included clearing right-of-way, widening, and drainage
improvements.
A 5-mUe section of Highway No. 2 from the south limits of Dawson Creek to
Pouce Coupe was widened and strengthened with gravel base course in preparation
for paving.   This work included revisions on two curves just north of Pouce Coupe.
On Road No. 3, Rolla to Clayhurst, 16 mUes were reshaped and regraveUed.
An additional 4 mUes were also regraveUed.
In addition, 11.5 utiles of farm and settlement roads and school-bus routes were
regraveUed and 38.5 mUes were newly gravelled.
Snow Removal.—The snowfaU for the year was below average. No difficulty
was experienced in keeping roads open throughout the district. Widespread ice
conditions necessitated heavy use of sand and chemicals, particularly on trunk highways.
 C 106
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1963/64
Bridges
Routine maintenance was carried out on most bridges in the district. SUver
Sands Bridge (No. 13) was replaced by a steel multi-plate pipe arch culvert and
Windrem Creek Bridge (No. 33) by a double steel-pipe arch culvert.
Ferries
The Clayhurst ferry operated most satisfactorily during the year. The hours
of service were extended by three hours for the heavy haul period during August,
September, and October. A new ferryman's residence was constructed near the
south landing.

 REPORT OF DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER C 133
REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF EXPENDITURE
The following pages present the financial report of the Department of
Highways.
The gross expenditure of $88,978,009.70 represents an increase of $7,000,000
over the preceding fiscal year, and this increase is reflected in both the maintenance
and the capital expenditures sections of the report. Additional highway mileages
and severe snow and ice conditions experienced during the winter of 1963/64 have
contributed to the increased maintenance costs, recorded at an all-time high of
$18,816,417.40.
Capital expenditures incurred under the Trans-Canada Highway Agreement
declined sharply during the fiscal period 1963/64, but this decline was more than
offset by the $10,600,000 increase in general highways construction.
A. E. Rhodes,
Comptroller of Expenditure.
