Prince George to Alberta on Highway No. 16.
The year saw increased paving and bridge construction.
A large programme of relocation of roads, required by construction of the
Hugh Keenleyside Dam, continued on schedule.
The British Columbia Ferries Division came under the Department's administration for the first full year.
The Department personnel, both at headquarters and in the field, performed
their duties competently and cheerfully.

 HIGHWAYS REPORT
REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, British Columbia,
August 11, 1969.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, British Columbia.
Sir,—Herewith are submitted district reports for the fiscal year 1968/69.
The total mileage of Provincial highways is 26,456. This is made up of 3,660
miles of trunk highways, 1,781 miles of main highways, and 21,015 miles of other
highways. The total length of classified highways within municipalities is 1,062
and, of this 509 miles are trunk highways, 279 are main highways, and 274 other
highways.
Construction or reconstruction by day-labour continued at a steady pace, the
total mileage being 403. This work was distributed over 29 miles of trunk highways,
42 miles of main highways, and 332 miles of other highways. Improvements and
minor betterments were carried out on 815 miles.
Cost of maintenance of roads, bridges, and ferries for the year was $31,171,431.
Cost of snow removal, included in the above, was $4,527,619, there being 21,199
miles of road kept open.
The number of ferries operating under the supervision of the Department, not
including those in the British Columbia Ferries Division, is 52. These vessels
carried 1,734,086 vehicles and 4,355,669 passengers, including drivers.
There are 23 ships in service under the supervision of the British Columbia
Ferries Division. On these were carried 1,732,580 vehicles and 6,020,994 passengers, including drivers.
There were 6,308 subdivisions handled during the calendar year 1968 and,
of these 1,669 were adjacent to controlled-access highways. Issued during the same
period were 773 permits for entrances on controlled-access highways, 1,750 for
entrances on non-controlled-access highways, and 2,939 for other works on Crown
lands. These totals represent an increase of 15 per cent for subdivisions handled
and 27 per cent for permits issued over the previous year.
The number of right-of-way settlements was 662. The total cost of right-of-
way, including holdings purchased on behalf of the British Columbia Harbours
Board for the Roberts Bank project, was $5,235,015.
F. A. MacLean,
Assistant Deputy Minister.

HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1968/69
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER
Victoria, British Columbia,
August 11, 1969.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, British Columbia.
Sir,—Submitted herewith are reports from the Senior Bridge Engineer, the
Director of Construction, the Senior Paving Engineer, and the Design and Planning
Engineer.
The total mileage of roads constructed or reconstructed by contract amounted
to 98.56. This fiscal year marked the virtual completion of the North Thompson
Highway and the Prince George-McBride-Alberta Border section of the Northern
Trans-Provincial Highway, and by which another route to Alberta and points east
has been opened.
The total length of asphalt-concrete pavement laid was 238 miles, an increase
of 37 per cent over that laid in the previous year. The length of road-mix pavement
was 439 miles.
Completed during the year were 23 bridges and other structures, of these,
3 major bridges are on the above-mentioned North Thompson Highway and the
Prince George-Alberta Border section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.
Under construction are 58 structures, 26 of which are on the above highways.
The length of final location surveys completed amounted to 231 miles and the
length of office design, including estimates, was 170 miles.
Soil surveys were completed on 360 miles of highway and foundation investigations were conducted at 44 bridge sites.
Two major landslides occurred, one on the Trans-Canada Highway near
Revelstoke, and the other on the Southern Trans-Canada Highway near Sparwood.
Unfortunately, fatalities were involved in both slides.
D. D. Godfrey,
Chief Engineer.
 REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
C 11
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
Twenty-three new structures were completed in the year under review and
construction was started on many bridges such that, at this time, work is in progress
on 58 structures, showing a sharp upsurge in bridge and ferry-landing construction
in the Province. Particulars of the structures referred to are given on the appended
tabulations, a perusal of which reveals the emphasis being placed on the completion
of bridges on such important highways as the North Thompson Highway and the
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.
On the North Thompson Highway a major bridge is newly open to traffic and
15 bridges are under construction. On the northern Trans-Provincial Highway
between Prince George and the Alberta boundary where two major structures were
opened last fall, a further four are in progress and contracts have been awarded
recently for seven additional bridges on this highway. Construction of the Moose
Lake Overhead must await settlement of the stage-constructed approach fill.
The completion of the West Twin Creek Bridge, 18 miles west of McBride,
eliminated a 3-mile tortuous detour, the last remaining bottleneck between McBride
and Prince George. The completion of McBride Bridge across the Fraser River in
October gave McBride residents an improved highway connection to the east and
removed a weak link from the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.
West Twin Creek Bridge is 628 feet long, on horizontal and vertical curves,
and is supported on six steel towers, the two centre ones extending 180 feet above
creek bed. The accuracy of the matching of the prefabricated-steel superstructure
to the isolated concrete pedestals was a gratifying achievement. This bridge
incorporates a heating system in the concrete deck to avoid the danger of deck
icing, which has to be avoided due to the grade and curve on the bridge.
The connection of the North Thompson Highway to Kamloops was greatly
improved upon the opening in December of the new Kamloops East Bridge across
the South Thompson River. In conjunction with this bridge a new overhead crossing
of the C.P.R. gives access to the Trans-Canada Highway.
Construction of the new crossing of the Fraser River at Quesnel is progressing
satisfactorily, despite set-backs due to unusual river conditions. Steel erection will
commence this spring and with favourable progress the structure will be ready for
traffic in the late fall. The main substructure contract has been let for the new
Fraser River crossing at Mission, with work in early stage.
A third major structure across the Fraser River is under way with the award
of a preliminary earthwork contract for the Knight Street Bridge in Vancouver.
It is of interest to note that a fourth crossing of the Fraser River is under construction
at Tete Jaune at the junction of Highways Nos. 5 and 16, and that east of this
junction two smaller bridges across the Fraser are now under contract. Six bridges
concurrently under construction across the same river should be a record.
The anticipated storage of water in the Arrow Lakes Reservoir in 1969 necessitates the expeditious completion of bridges at Burton, Whatshan River, and three
between Revelstoke and Shelter Bay. These are all in progress, and new ferry
landings have been completed for service at Needles and at Shelter Bay and Galena
Bay to replace the Arrowhead ferry service. The landing at Shelter Bay will incorporate a marine railway to enable the ferries to be hauled out of the water for
inspection and overhaul, and cradle and hoisting mechanisms are being designed.

roadway width, 30 feet.

Stuart River Bridge, Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road, under construction (now completed).
Over-all length, 582 feet; roadway width, 28 feet.
 REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER C 13
Reconstruction of ferry landings at Langdale and Earls Cove, and improvements at Horseshoe Bay, have enabled improved ferry service on the Sunshine Coast.
The award of contracts for landings at Heriot Bay and Whaletown foretells the
establishment of ferry service to Cortez Island from Campbell River via Quadra
Island. Plans have been prepared for reconstruction of the Texada Island ferry
terminal to enable a much larger ferry to operate, and for this and improved service
to Comox plans were made for the reconstruction of Westview and Little River
ferry terminals.
Work has commenced on the widening of the George S. Pearson Bridge in
Nanaimo to four lanes. This widening, plus associated approach work, will eliminate
a serious bottleneck in the Hub City.
Access to Squamish and Garibaldi Park has been greatly improved with the
reconstruction of three bridges between Britannia and Squamish.
Plans are being readied for three major structures on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway between Terrace and Prince Rupert and at Wardner to carry
the Southern Trans-Canada Highway over the raised water of the Libby Dam
Reservoir.
Three grade-separation structures are being designed to carry Provincial
highways over the rail link to Roberts Bank.
Two road underpasses and five pedestrian overpasses are now being designed
for the Patricia Bay Highway.
To provide berthing facilities and increased traffic accommodation for the
" jumboized " ferries, contracts are being finalized for work at Swartz Bay and
Tsawwassen.
The Bridge Branch staff gave the usual good account of themselves over this
period, and the services of private consulting firms continued to be called on when
necessary as, for instance, in several of the major projects under study at this time.

   C 24 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS
Construction of grading projects by contract continued at a normal pace, the
greater part of which took place on the Northern Trans-Provincial, Vernon-Slocan,
Shelter Bay-Revelstoke, and Stewart-Watson Lake Highways. The total mileage
amounted to 98.56.
On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, reconstruction was completed
from Prince Rupert to Galloway Rapids and is in progress from Prudhomme Lake
to McNeil River. The section from Usk to Kitwanga, 31 miles in length, is completed, with the exception of three bridges, some gravelling and paving.
On this same highway the Prince George-McBride section is virtually completed except for paving and the Tete Jaune Cache—Alberta Border section is completed and paved. There are short detours at several river crossings where construction of major bridges is still in progress.
With the completion of the North Thompson Highway from McMurphy to
Tete Jaune Cache a new route to Jasper Park and Edmonton has been opened to
the public.   There are several bridges incomplete where short detours are necessary.
Reconstruction of the Vernon-Slocan Highway between the Whatshan River
and Nakusp and of the Shelter Bay-Revelstoke Highway, made necessary by the
construction of the Arrow Dam at Castlegar, progressed at a very satisfactory rate.
The mileage constructed on these two highways during the year amounted to 34.5,
leaving only 10.0 miles of the total of 70 yet to be constructed.
Satisfactory progress was made on the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway, where
a total of 25.5 miles was built.
Other projects completed were the Taghum—Nelson section (6.37 miles) of
the Kinnaird-Nelson Highway and the McMurdo-Golden section (14.76 miles)
of the Kootenay-Columbia Highway.
Work commenced on a 6.88-mile section between Queen Charlotte City and
Skidegate Mission on the Queen Charlotte Islands.
Contracts have been let but work has not yet commenced between Kid Creek
and Goat River east of Creston on the Southern Trans-Canada Highway and between Syringa Creek and the Arrow Dam on the Broadwater Road.
Quantities in grading contracts were as follows:—

 C 30 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1968/69
REPORT OF THE SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
GENERAL
Authorizations issued in 1968/69 totalled $15,883,300, which exceeded the
previous year's allocation by approximately $4.3 million, and expenditures amounting to approximately $12,858,327 were about $5.5 million above 1967/68.
Actual mileage paved with asphalt also was up, to a total of 225.8 miles of
two-lane highway. In addition, Paving Branch crews roadmixed approximately 75.3
miles of road and surface-treated 147.2 miles. The principal reasons for the increased performance were the considerable number of continuing projects from the
previous year and the substantial number of contracts awarded this year, particularly those awarded early in the construction season. A strike and lockout in the
paving industry during the last quarter of the fiscal year reduced the quantity of
aggregates crushed ready for paving during the 1969/70 fiscal year.
CONTRACT CRUSHING, BASE CONSTRUCTION,
DRAINAGE, AND PAVING
Twenty-five projects were carried over from 1967/68, all of which required
significant contract field work to complete.
Twenty-four contracts were called and awarded this fiscal year. Two of these
contracts included paving work for the Parks Branch of the Department of Recreation and Conservation at a cost of $205,000. One project at a cost of $159,000
is shareable with the P.G.E. Railway.
Twenty-eight projects were substantially completed during the year. Twenty-
two projects, involving substantial field work and expenditure, will be continued
into the next fiscal year.
PULVIMIX AND SURFACE TREATMENT
Three day-labour crews, under the over-all control and direction of a senior
technician, were again employed this year. Trials the previous year indicated that
a relatively rapid curing cutback appeared to increase roadmixing effectiveness when
using the Pettibone Wood mixer, the asphalt suppliers agreed this year to produce
a mixing grade RC1 for this purpose, which gave generally satisfactory field results.
The increase in surface treatment from 56.6 miles in 1967 to 147.2 miles in
1968 should prove beneficial in holding down maintenance costs.
PERSONNEL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
The Paving Branch assisted in the conduct of University of British Columbia
Department of Extension Course on the " Design of Flexible Pavements " by contributing the laboratory equipment and facilities and by provision of two laboratory
demonstrators and lecturers for the course, in February, 1969. Two technicians
from the Paving Branch attended this course on " Design of Flexible Pavements."
As usual, annual proficiency examinations were held in March, 1969, following a series of in-service training courses held at regional centres.
The Senior Paving Engineer attended the annual conference of the Canadian
Technician Asphalt Association in November, 1968.
One Regional Paving Engineer attended the annual meeting of the Association
of Asphalt Paving Technologists during February, 1969.

REPORT OF THE DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER
A further photographic record of the main highways in the Province was taken
during the summer. The films were studied in detail to assist in determining deficient sections requiring improvement, traffic-control features, and access problems.
The highway inventory was updated to show the revisions during the year and the
current status of the principal highways. A training seminar was held in November
on Highway Capacity Analysis to keep all design engineers abreast of the latest
technology in this field.

Planning Section
In the last fiscal year sufficient low-level photography was obtained to produce
high-order mapping on the Trans-Canada Highway between the junction of Highway No. 9 and Flood, on the Southern Trans-Canada Highway at Nelson (Observatory Street), on the Okanagan Highway at Penticton, on the Barnett Highway between Port Moody and the Coquitlam River, on the Lougheed Highway at Mary
Hill, on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway at Bear Pass, and on the Patricia Bay Highway between Carey Road and Rogers Avenue.
High-level photography was obtained to produce low-order mapping in Bear
Pass and between Lumby and Needles.
Horizontal photography was obtained and used to produce high-order mapping on the Trans-Canada Highway along Three Valley Lake.
Low-order photography was used to produce reconnaissance mapping between
Towdystan and Chilanko Forks, on the Penticton By-pass, at Enterprise Creek north
of Slocan, at Mary Hill east of Port Mann Bridge, between Sayward and Beaver
Cove on Vancouver Island, between Hudson Hope and Charlie Lake, and on the

Computer Section
Improvements continue to be made to the highway computer programmes, and
new auxiliary programmes are written from time to time. During the year, projects
from Victoria and all four Regions were processed on the design programmes, 43
projects in all with a combined length of 252 miles. The pavement-elevation programme was used on a number of occasions, mostly for interchange work.
The Construction Branch recently started to use some programmes written by
this Section with their particular operations in mind, and the Paving Branch made
use of an earlier version of the construction programme.   With interest being shown

MATERIALS TESTING BRANCH
E. E. Readshaw, Senior Materials Engineer
Soil Surveys
The Materials Testing Branch has continued to provide soils and foundation
information on bridges and new highway routes. Twenty-five road projects have
been investigated this year, totalling about 360 miles of highway. These have been
located in all parts of the Province and every kind of soil condition has been encountered. At Prince Rupert the rough terrain, consisting of peat, glacial till lying
over an extremely uneven bedrock profile, necessitated a very detailed programme
of drilling, probing, and seismic exploration to adequately assess the amount of rock
in the proposed cut excavations. At this and many other locations, great use has
been made of the air-trac rock drill for drilling through overburden to find bedrock
profiles. Special techniques have been developed to enable holes to be drilled in
as much as 40 feet of overburden with this type of drill. The method is quick and,
once access has been made, many test-holes can be drilled giving excellent information on the depth to bedrock. This also enables seismic surveys to be checked out
at a minimum cost. When more detailed information about the overburden soil is
required, diamond-drill holes are made and soil samples taken.
Bridge Foundation Investigations
Forty-four bridge-sites were investigated this year. They were mostly of the
smaller type but much drilling was done for the proposed bridge over the Fraser
River at Knight Street, Vancouver. Here the proposed method of founding the
piers below thick layers of sand and marine clay was to use 36-inch diameter steel-
cylinder piles. In order to determine the safe bearing capacity and to gain some
experience of the problems of placing them, a test installation was completed.
Detailed drilling was done to accurately plot the base of the marine clay and to
sample the density and composition of the material below it so that a realistic estimate of the depth at which it was possible to found the cylinders would be obtained
* Continuing surveys.

before the contractor started. The test-piles were driven open-ended and the soil
excavated from inside, using air-lifts and grabs. Two 24-inch diameter piles were
load tested.

LANDSLIDES AND STABILITY PROBLEMS
Landslides were a continuing problem again this year and unfortunately two
slides were responsible for the deaths of six persons. The first at Camp Creek near
Revelstoke occurred in June after a warm wet spring. The slide started as a conventional circular type slip-out 2 miles up the valley of Camp Creek where the ground
sloped at 20°. The sliding material mixed with water flowed down the narrow bed
of the creek, taking with it trees and overburden. It flowed out of the valley onto
the highway, demolishing the bridge over the original stream, and burying a car.
The cause of the slump is thought to have been abnormally high water-tables in the
soil of the upper slopes, possibly because the ground was not frozen when the snow
thawed, so that abnormal amounts of melt-water could soak into the ground instead
of running off.   Such slides are a recognized hazard in steep, mountainous terrain.
Another slide at Sparwood consisted of mine waste forming a tip on a steep
sidehill some 3,000 feet from the highway and 1,000 feet above it. As a result of
excessive pore-water pressures in the " till " overburden below the mine waste, the
tip-bank slipped off the underlying bedrock, breaking into a flow of soil and rock
which rapidly covered the highway, burying a car with two persons in it.    About
 REPORT OF DESIGN AND PLANNING ENGINEER
C 59
half a million cubic yards of material was involved in the slide and 600 feet of highway was covered 20 feet deep. The stability of another tip-heap adjacent has been
evaluated, with the result the company has completely removed it, having pushed
it down to the base of the slope.
View of slide at Sparwood
In addition to these, 40 other slides were investigated during the year, 21 of
which were new. The balance are old slide areas on which movement and other
instrumentation readings are being taken. Most of these are small trouble-areas
which do not immediately endanger life or property, but they nevertheless involve
a considerable expenditure of funds by the maintenance branch and are a potential
hazard to traffic.
Research
The design, construction, and maintenance of a smooth, durable, economical
running surface on the highway is the ultimate objective of highway engineers, and
this has involved the branch in several ways. One of the features of concern is the
material which forms the base course under the asphalt. In this Province, natural
gravel has been used almost exclusively and it has been found that this sometimes
causes pavement failure during the spring thaw period. The reason seems to lie
in the mineral composition of the gravel and its gradation. One test which has been
used in the past year is the frost test, in which compacted samples of gravel are
subjected to freezing at the top while remaining is contact with water at the bottom.
After 5 days of freezing, poor samples expand more than one-half inch in six and
after thawing lose all strength. Photo No. 3 shows the weak condition of such a
sample after testing. Sources of gravel are being tested like this before use and, if
found to be potentially unsatisfactory, can either be stabilized with asphalt or cement
or a new source used. It has been found also that some gravels which, when first
laid on the road, are satisfactory, break down, or degrade and become susceptible
to frost or excessive moisture. By pretesting the gravel sources it is becoming possible to detect and to avoid using such materials.
The use of very large-diameter culverts instead of a bridge is increasing, and
the Branch has installed hydraulic earth-pressure gauges on several such installations.   These large culverts rely for their strength upon the proper compaction of
 C 60
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
the surrounding fill material, which forms a soil arch. The actual metal of the culvert serves as a form for the arch and for distributing the stresses around the soil
arch. The object of the pressure gauges was to measure the magnitude and distribution of stress.

Concrete
The resurfacing of bridge decks with thin concrete overlays has continued, with
two large bridges being resurfaced this year. The first at Rock Creek was 900 feet
long. The concrete deck had seriously deteriorated. The old concrete was broken
out where necessary and a new surface laid. The second was the Second Narrows
Bridge, where the original asphalt surface had become very rough and potholed.
This was resurfaced with concrete in a period of 8 weeks. In both cases a large
scarifier was brought in to remove the surface layer of concrete. This could scarify
to a depth of one-quarter inch an area of 800 square yards in six hours. It was
found, however, that to obtain good bond, the scarified surface had to be sandblasted to remove the cake of fine powder and water created by the scarifying
process. This was especially the case when light-weight concrete made with
expanded shale aggregate was being treated. This was not a problem when the
smaller scarifier was used and it would seem that because of the very much lower
output the degree of cleaning was greater. Cores taken on the bridges resurfaced
since 1964 show that the thin overlays are standing up well.
Pavement Design
One of the basic problems in the field of pavement design is how to deal with
the large volumes of data obtained. Methods of using the computer to assemble
and analyse data on strength, surface conditions, and performance ratings are being
developed.
Considerable investigation of the condition of the road surface, its present
strength and ride, continues to be carried out. Performance ratings are taken each
year on the whole of the paved mileage and spring strengths continue to be measured,
using the Benkelman Beam.
Transverse cracking of asphaltic concrete has become more prevalent in recent
years. This is thought to be caused by several factors, one of which is the viscosity-
temperature characteristics of the asphalt. A programme of checking the stiffness
and strain properties of various asphalt-pavement sections at low temperatures has
been initiated. Beams cut from the pavement are being loaded in the testing-
machine at —20° F., and a stress-strain curve obtained. Penetration and temperature susceptibility are being measured. By comparing cracked with non-cracked
sections it is hoped that specification limits for asphalt cements can be formulated
which will minimize cracking.
Studies of the stiffness properties of asphaltic concrete at normal temperatures
and traffic-loading conditions are also being undertaken to provide design information for asphalt surfacings on orthotropic plate-bridge decks.
Inspection of Materials
Inspection of materials has continued this year, and more and more types of
materials are being inspected. Safety vests worn by those working on the highway
are an item not previously inspected. Barbed wire for fencing, sledge-hammer
heads, and calcium chloride are some of the items for which new or amended specifications have been written as a result of problems which have arisen from inspection activity.

TRAFFIC BRANCH
J. H. Harding, Senior Traffic Engineer
During the past fiscal year the Traffic Branch continued to co-operate with
individuals and organizations in the allied fields of traffic safety, community planning, standardization of traffic-control devices, and traffic operations. The Senior
Traffic Engineer represented the Department in the British Columbia Safety Council,
the St. John Ambulance, Highway First Aid Post Committee, the Capital Region
Planning Board, the Canadian Good Roads Association, Council on Uniform Traffic
Control Devices for Canada, and the Canadian Good Roads Committee on Traffic
Operations. The Senior Traffic Engineer and his staff also worked on several committees on control devices.
Short traffic counts were taken with portable automatic equipment at about
800 locations where traffic is counted each year in the summer. The Department's
system of permanent count stations was further expanded and modernized. Traffic
volumes are now recorded continuously throughout the year by automatic equipment
at 20 locations in the Province. A considerable number of traffic counts was made
for special purposes, such as railway-crossing studies, intersection studies, and interchange-ramp studies. Summer daily traffic volumes are currently running about
35,000 vehicles on the Port Mann Bridge, 48,000 vehicles on the Pattullo Bridge,
49,000 vehicles on the First Narrows Bridge, 48,000 vehicles on the Second Narrows Bridge, and 11,000 vehicles on the Okanagan Lake Bridge. Further steps
were taken toward automation of traffic data handling.
Traffic signals were designed and installed at 23 intersections throughout the
Province. The first quad left-turn traffic signal in Canada was installed on Highway
No. 7 at Willingdon Avenue. Approximately 225 steel lighting-luminaires were
installed at highway intersections.    Designs were prepared for lighting of Saddle
 C 64 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
Rock and Sailor Bar Tunnels in the Fraser Canyon and deck heating of West Twin
Bridge on Highway No. 16.
Seventeen railway grade-crossings were signalized in co-operation with the
Federal Railway Transport Committee and the Canadian National and Canadian
Pacific Railways.
Work was completed on the preparation of the Department Manual of Standard
Traffic Signs (1968 edition), and it was distributed last fall. This 1968 British
Columbia Sign Manual cancels and replaces both the 1957 Manual of Standard
Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways and the 1962 List of Standard
Signs for British Columbia. It also takes precedence over the 1965 Manual of
Construction and Maintenance Signs and the 1966 Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada, wherever a conflict in standards might exist. This new
manual went into effect on November 1, 1968, and it is expected to bring about a
better and more uniform signing system on British Columbia highways.
A considerable part of the Provincial highway system was reviewed by driving
over it, using a ball bank indicator, to ensure the adequacy of the advisory speed
signing.
Changing conditions necessitated the review of many speed limits. The opinion
of the responsible police forces was obtained in many cases, and, where necessary,
actual travel speeds were checked by means of a radar speed meter.
Reports of fatal accidents which occurred in the period November 1, 1967,
to October 31, 1968, were reviewed in detail and significant characteristics tabulated.
Numerous intersection problems were investigated during the year. Many
manual traffic counts were taken and designs for improvement at many intersections
were prepared. Improvements such as widening, channelization, signing, and signal
revision were carried out at many of these intersections to give greater capacity, to
reduce hazards and delay, and to facilitate the flow of traffic. An area traffic study
was instigated for North Peace River and South Peace River Districts to determine
the future road patterns and standards, in keeping with the land development.

During the 1968/69 fiscal year, 662 settlements were completed by the Right-
of-way Branch. One claim was resolved through arbitration proceedings and four
were in process. The expenditure for rights-of-way, as well as for properties acquired by the Department for other purposes, totalled $5,235,105.32. This included
holdings purchased on behalf of the British Columbia Harbours Board for the Roberts Bank project.
There were 36 sales by public tender and 20 sales by public auction during the
year of lands surplus to highway requirements and of buildings to be cleared from
rights-of-way. These sales resulted in a recovery of $45,827. Gross revenue from
rentals amounted to $56,166.12. During the fiscal year, 136 buildings and parcels
of land were under short-term lease or rental agreements.
Land assembly on behalf of the British Columbia Harbours Board was undertaken by the Department on both the port area and the adjacent sector of the corridor. Also under the administration of the Department is the acquisition of a number of holdings in the Libby Pondage area, south of Wardner. A field office was
established in Cranbrook for this purpose.
The Vancouver Island area of the Right-of-way Branch was placed under
direct administration of the North Vancouver Regional District, and field quarters
established in the Burnside District Office.
During the year, through arrangements with the Department of the Attorney-
General, a more effective method of title endorsation was implemented whereby,
subsequent to formal notice in The British Columbia Gazette, highway rights-of-way
are now of record on the titles in Land Registration Offices.
L. J. Moore,
Chief Right-of-way Agent.

During the year a net total of $9,484,137.89 was expended to cover the cost
of maintenance and operation of Government equipment operated by the Department of Highways.
The sum of $2,719,819.85 was expended on the purchase of new equipment,
as follows: 5 graders; 24 rubber-tired loaders; 2 truck-mounted backhoes; 36
sedans and station-wagons; 2 10-ton tilt trailers; 8 house and office trailers; 4 portable asphalt plants; 1 weed sprayer; 10 crawler tractors; 12 tractor mowers and
loaders; 216 trucks; 8 vibratory rollers; 2 self-propelled rollers; 2 compressors;
1 steam generator; 43 truck-mounted snow ploughs; and sundry small equipment
such as pumps, cement-mixers, light plants, garage equipment, etc.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER, BRITISH COLUMBIA
FERRIES DIVISION
The British Columbia Ferries Division of the Department of Highways operates passenger and vehicle services between Victoria (Swartz Bay) and Nanaimo
(Departure Bay) on Vancouver Island and the City of Vancouver (Tsawwassen
and Horseshoe Bay respectively), between Kelsey Bay on Northern Vancouver
Island and Prince Rupert, a Sunshine Coast-Powell River service (Horseshoe Bay
to Langdale, Earls Cove to Saltery Bay), and a Gulf Islands service, with connections
both to Vancouver Island and the Mainland. The total per-trip carrying capacity
of the 23 ships presently in service is 13,235 passengers and 2,060 vehicles.
Once again traffic increases were experienced on all routings, and the following steps are being taken to enable the ferries to handle the increases:—
The Sechelt Queen was refitted and remodelled,  replacing the  Queen of
the Islands, more than doubling the capacity for the Mainland-Gulf Islands service.
A full-time Terminal Agent was appointed for the Gulf Islands to deal more
effectively with their traffic problems.
The Queen of Esquimalt is being lengthened through the addition of an
84-foot mid-section, increasing her capacity by 55 cars, adding to the
Victoria-Mainland route.
Platform decks were installed on each of the ships operating between Horseshoe Bay and Departure Bay, thus increasing the capacity by approximately 1,000 automobiles per day on that route.

 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
C 71
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
Fifty-two ferries were operated under the jurisdiction of the Department of
Highways during the 1968/69 fiscal year. Thirteen of these were major ferries,
ten were cable ferries, thirteen were reaction ferries, and seven were privately
owned subsidized vessels. There were also eight Government-owned miscellaneous
ferries.
TRAFFIC
The traffic for the year was considerably down from the preceding year; 1,734,-
086 vehicles were carried, as well as 4,355,669 passengers. Ferry traffic throughout
the Province generally did increase. However, the large construction crews working
in the Arrow Lakes area have almost completed their tasks and as a result the high
traffic volume in that area has dropped.
MAINTENANCE
All ferries were inspected during the year and all repair work was accomplished
with a minimum of inconvenience to the public.
NEW CONSTRUCTION AND ALTERATIONS
New landings were designed and construction contracts let for improved and
increased coastal services, such as the new Cortes Island to Quadra Island route,
a new landing at Blubber Bay, and a new landing at Quathiaski Cove. New landings were built at Galena Bay, Shelter Bay, Needles, and Fauquier on the Arrow
Lakes for the new ferries which are almost complete now.
Ferry service at West Arrow Park was discontinued and the ferry disposed of
recently.
One Castlegar ferry was transferred to Needles to replace the ferry there until
the arrival of the new vessel.

 Repeater station in fibreglass housing
 C 74
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF ELECTRONICS
The battery repeater development programme has been an unqualified success.
Some 20 of these units have been in operation on mountain-top sites over the past
winter without one instance of failure and with no maintenance. Several of the
sites involved are over 8,000 feet in elevation. This provides a degree of reliability
heretofore unknown in the industry. Some three years' service indicate the only
enemy to be lightning strikes, or near strikes, which have caused problems in three
instances.
An associated family of equipment is being developed to provide extended
trunks, remote base stations or links, and all other functions for future requirements.
This programme utilizes a cone-shaped fiberglass building, some 28 feet high
and 7-foot base diameter, weighing some 650 pounds, and lifted to site by helicopter. Antenna systems are enclosed within the upper cone portion and all equipment and power supply enclosed within the insulated lower section. A battery
power-supply is used with a projected life of five years without maintenance.
Design, fabrication, and construction of the entire package is strictly a British
Columbia development to suit local terrain and conditions.
Over 1,100 mobile units form part of the system. Installation of these units
increase at an annual rate of 6 per cent.

Director of Electronics.

CLAIMS AND SAFETY PROMOTION
The increased number of accidents is a reflection of the exceptionally adverse
winter conditions occurring in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island areas.
Many vehicles were abandoned on the highways, thereby adding to the difficulties
of the Department plough operators.
Claims, other than those arising out of Government motor-vehicle accidents,
consisted of recovery of repair costs to 44 damaged lamp standards, 65 bridges,
56 guard-rails, 56 signs and flashers, and 36 miscellaneous claims. One hundred
and sixty-eight miscellaneous claims were paid out.
In the area of litigation, 13 cases were concluded. In one case, judgment was
given in our favour; in three, judgment was given against us; in one other, liability
was divided. In seven cases, out-of-Court settlement was attained. In one case,
the action brought by the Crown was abandoned. Thirty-seven cases are pending,
of which we are the defendant in 22.
There were nine meetings held of the Inter-Departmental Safety Committee and
six meetings of the Headquarters Safety Committee.
British Columbia Safety Council awards were won by various districts and
crews. These consisted of 26 bronze, 28 silver, 21 gold, 9 bronze-on-gold, 3 silver-
on-gold, and 4 awards of honour.

 C 96 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1968/69
REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
The winter of 1968/69 was generally quite severe, with above-average snowfalls being recorded in all parts of the Province, except possibly in Region 4, where
snowfall tended to be below average. Near-record snowfalls occurred at Victoria
and in the Fraser Valley, while the highest snowfalls on record occurred at Rossland,
Vernon, and Port Alberni. Temperatures in all areas were below normal, and in
many areas severe pavement damage resulted.
A total of 21,200 miles of roads was kept open during the winter at a cost of
$4,527,618. The use of sand and chemicals, particularly salt, to combat icing conditions continues to expand, and there is an increasing need for more salt-storage
facilities in all areas.
All major pass routes were kept in good condition with no major closures for
slides, except for the Fraser Canyon where one of the worst winters on record was
experienced and a number of closures was encountered.
The run-off during the spring of 1968 was slower than normal and, while there
was no flooding on major rivers, heavy rainstorms in the late spring caused serious
flooding on tributary streams in some areas. Following heavy rainstorms in June,
streams in the West Kootenay area flooded, causing considerable property damage
and destroying several bridges. Cottonwood Creek in Nelson, and Duhamel Creek
north of Nelson, flooded and caused severe damage to private property, but did not
seriously affect the highway. Bridges at Barrett Creek on the Nelson-Salmo Highway, at Slocan Park, and at Halfway Creek on the Nakusp-Galena Bay Highway,
were washed out.
Flooding conditions were also experienced on the Mica Access Road, North
Thompson Highway, and in the Bralorne area. A section of bridge at Avola on
the North Thompson, and the Cadwallader Bridge at Bralorne, were destroyed.
In nearly all instances traffic was quickly restored through the use of Bailey
bridging, of which a total of 420 feet was installed during the month of June.
Heavy rains were also responsible for a large mud and rock slide which blocked
the Trans-Canada Highway at Camp Creek, 18 miles west of Revelstoke, on June
5th and, tragically, demolished a vehicle containing a family of five, of which a little
girl was the only survivor. Clearing operations were considerably hampered by
continual rain, but the road was finally reopened to traffic on June 7th.
The expansion and improvement of our main and minor road system was continued through reconstruction and paving carried out under day labour and major
maintenance projects. Improvements were also provided through extensive gravelling projects and through an expanded use of calcium chloride and bunker oil to
control dust.
The landscaping programme was continued, with 2,603 acres of slope-seeding
being carried out under contract on newly constructed sections of the Northern
Trans-Provincial Highway and the North Thompson Highway. A further 838
acres of slope-seeding, together with 533 acres of refertilization, was carried out by
Department crews on various other highways throughout the Province. An experimental planting and landscaping programme was continued at the Stormont and
Campbell River Interchanges in the New Westminster District.
Improvement of existing roadside rest areas was also continued, with additional
areas being planned. A total of 200 concrete picnic tables for use in rest areas was
produced during the year by the Vernon Highway District.
 REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
C 97
The initial step to eliminate the hazard caused by cattle wandering at large on
highways was undertaken this year with the establishment of a regulation prohibiting
live stock from highways. Because of the many miles of fencing involved, the regulation was made effective only on certain designated highways, but coverage will be
expanded to take in all main highways as rapidly as fencing requirements are met.
In order to relieve cattle owners of any undue hardship, the Department has set up
a fencing policy under which extensive assistance is being provided to initially fence
all sections of highway where cattle are involved.
During the year, 61 bridges were either completely rebuilt or had major repairs
made by district bridge crews. Ten bridges were eliminated or replaced with culverts.   Regional bridge-painting crews painted 22 bridges.
Training programmes to improve standards and efficiency were continued.
A new foreman-training programme was inaugurated in December, when the first
one-week series of lectures was held for an initial group of foremen. A second group
met in March, with a third group scheduled to meet in April. This is the most comprehensive programme of this type so far undertaken, and from all appearances will
be most successful.
The total expenditure for maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries, including the cost of snow removal, was $31,171,431.

REGIONAL REPORTS
REGION No. 1
(M. G. Elston, Regional Highway Engineer, North Vancouver)
Saanich, Nanaimo, Courtenay, North Vancouver, New Westminster, and
Chilliwack Highway District
Saanich District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried on throughout most of the
year with the exception of the spring months of 1969, where abnormally severe
break-up conditions were encountered due to the colder-than-average winter. Two
large wooden box-culverts on the West Coast Road failed during the year and were
replaced with 5-foot and 6-foot culverts. A programme of repainting guard-rail
on the Trans-Canada Highway was started during the year.
Bituminous Surfacing. -—• Roadmix surfacing was placed on approximately 5
miles of road during the year, mostly within the Langford area. On the Trans-
Canada Highway at Dougan Lake, 0.60 mile was repaved with plantmix to cover up
serious pavement failure caused by spring break-up.
Construction.—Two major day-labour projects on the Patricia Bay Highway
were started during the year. A 4.5-mile section from Beaver Lake Park to Island
View Road was widened to three lanes and construction commenced on a 1.3-mile
section from Carey Road to Rogers Street to widen the road to four lanes and install
curb and gutter.
The Sooke-Metchosin Road intersection was completely rebuilt and side roads
in the Langford and Shawnigan Lake areas were reconstructed. In an 8-mile section of the West Coast Road at River Jordan widening, ditching, and culvert renewal
were carried out in preparation for paving during the coming year.
Snow Removal. — A much higher-than-average snowfall in all areas during
January and February kept the crews extremely busy. All main roads were kept
open. Side roads were impassable for only short periods of time. Larger-than-
normal quantities of salt and sand were used in all areas.
Bridges
Channel Bridge on the Lagoon Road was rebuilt during the year. Extensive
repairs were carried out on Nagle Bridge on the Shawnigan Lake Road.
Buildings
A small addition was made to the Burnside Highways Office to make office
space for a Right-of-way Agent. At Langford, a frame building was constructed
for the manufacture of no-post guard-rail.
Nanaimo District
A paving programme was carried out on each of the Gulf Islands and major
centres on Vancouver Island.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 99
A number of roads were widened to allow for repaying, with yellow edge-lines
and shoulder walkways. This became necessary due to the increased population
along rural routes adjacent to towns.
Considerable off-road maintenance was carried out on the Trans-Canada and
Island Highways between Nanaimo and Duncan to shape sections of right-of-way
to allow future cutting with mowers.
A very severe winter snowfall was dealt with successfully. Record snow conditions in the Alberni area resulted in a Sicard snow blower being moved to the area
to assist the regular equipment.
Two new salt sheds were constructed—one at Nanaimo and one at Duncan.
A new bridge shed and electrical shed were constructed in the Nanaimo yard.
Courtenay District
Roads
Above normal rainfall during the summer hindered paving and road construction.   A few minor projects were not completed due to weather.
Sub-zero weather and heavy snow resulted in a very severe winter. Frost damage to roads was extensive. Many gravel roads became almost impassable and
extensive damage was done to many paved roads. Cool spring weather resulted in
slow run-off and very little flood damage resulted.
Day Labour
North Area:—
Port Hardy to Port McNeill to Beaver Cove: General upgrading between Port
McNeill and Beaver Cove, prior to paving, was completed.
Jeune Landing Access: Upgrading of a logging-road between the Port Hardy-
Port McNeill Road and Jeune Landing was started. This will serve residents of Rumble Beach and Port Alice.
Gold River Townsite to Pulp-mill: Construction of a dual-use road (public
and logging trucks) was completed with the exception of final gravel.
Courtenay Area and Campbell River Area:—
Numerous side roads were oiled and the following roads were paved either
partly or for their entire length:  Ryan, Smith, Headquarters, Don, Singing
Sands, Mayfair, MacCauley, Bates, Endall, Denman East, Heriot Bay,
Knight, Little River,  Willemar,  McQuillan,  Peterson,  Ninth  Avenue
(Campbell River).
Shouldering of the Island Highway in the Courtenay and Campbell River areas
was continued.
Additional improvements were made on the road to Forbidden Plateau.
Parksville Area:—
Oil was spread on numerous side roads to eliminate a dust nuisance.
Many side roads were upgraded and other roads that have never been opened
were cleared and grubbed in preparation for opening.
A truck lane for northbound traffic was constructed and paved on the Nanoose
Hill.
Bridges
Maintenance was carried out on bridges throughout the area as required.
Carney Bridge No. 160 on Island Highway (Sayward Valley), a Bailey bridge,
was replaced by a permanent type structure.
J
 C 100 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1968/69
Ferries
Normal service by Department operated ferries was maintained between Comox
and Powell River, Campbell River and Quadra Island, Buckley Bay and Denman
Island, Sointula, Alert Bay and Port McNeill. Subsidized ferries servicing Hornby
Island and Lasqueti Island operated all year.
During peak traffic periods our tug and barge assisted the normal Denman
Island ferry and greatly reduced traffic congestion.
Dredging at Campbell River landing and Little River landing was started. New
landing at Quathiaski Cove for the Campbell River run was nearly completed. Landings at Heriot Bay (Quadra Island) and Whaletown (Cortes Island) were started
in preparation for the Quadra to Cortes service.
Buildings
At Port Hardy two residential trailers, purchased by the Department, were set
up. Water and sewer were installed, and the yard was divided into a residential
section and an equipment section.
At Campbell River a start was made on an additional bay to the equipment
shed, and at Courtenay a crew-assembly and stock building was completed.
At Parksville a start was made on a building for crew assembly and foreman
office.
North Vancouver District
Roads
Maintenance.-—-Roads were maintained in generally good condition throughout
the year.
Severe flooding conditions were experienced in the Squamish to Pemberton
area several times during the year, with considerable damage being done to the roads
in these areas.   This damage has now all been repaired.
Construction.—The Squamish to Pemberton section of Highway No. 99 has
been improved by widening shoulders and improving sight distances.
A start was made on construction of the West Side Alta Lake Road.
Many small day labour projects were completed, particularly in the Powell
River, Pender Harbour, and Gibsons areas.
Paving.—Nine miles of roadmix pavement was laid in the Pender Harbour,
Powell River, and Gibsons areas.
Snow Removal.—Despite a very severe winter, most roads were kept open at
all times, with very little difficulty being experienced by the travelling public.
Bridges
Adequate maintenance was carried out on all bridges.
Miller Creek Bridge on the Pemberton Meadows Road was reconstructed, as
was Rubble Creek, Gates, and access bridge to gravel pit, Pemberton. These latter
three bridges were washed out by extremely high water.
Buildings
A shop and four-bay equipment shed were constructed at Pemberton, together
with an oil shed.
New Westminster District
Roads
Maintenance. — The highways were maintained to the standard needed for
heavy traffic volumes.   Soil sterilant was applied around the guard-rails and sign-
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 101
posts and also along the gravel shoulders of the Trans-Canada Freeway and the
Vancouver-Blaine Freeway. Grass cutting was a major maintenance item. Bunker
B oil dust-layer was applied in early summer to most of the gravel side roads.
The experimental planting programme was continued at Stormont Interchange
and also the landscaping at the Campbell River Interchange.
The maintenance of all the signs in the district has now become our responsibility.
Construction.—The Westminster Highway between No. 5 and No. 6 Roads,
and also the Lougheed Highway between North Road and Brunette Street were resurfaced, including paved shoulders. A section of Scott Road from King George VI
Highway to Old Yale Road was resurfaced.
A total of 2 miles of roadmix was laid, consisting of 1 mile on the Rennie Road
in Pitt Polder area and another mile on Barnston Island.
In the Bedwell Bay and Belcarra Park area the entrance to Turtle Head was
widened; also work was carried out on Marine Avenue, Senkler Road, and Watson
Road.
An intersection widening at Shaughnessy Street and Lougheed Highway, which
includes curb and gutter and lighting, was started. Also, a widening, resurfacing,
and lighting project was started on the Lougheed Highway between North Road and
the extension of Austin Road in Burnaby.
Traffic signals were installed at King Edward, Pitt River Road, and Third Avenue on the Lougheed Highway, at 88th Avenue and King George VI Highway, and
at No. 10 Highway and Pacific Highway.
Intersection widening and lighting were carried out at No. 10 Highway and
Scott Road, at Fraser Highway and Aldergrove-Bellingham Highway, while at
Crescent Beach Road and King George VI Highway and also at No. 10 Highway
and Fraser Highway the intersections were improved.
Snow Removal.—The snowfall was heavy this year. Our crews worked many
long hours and succeeded in maintaining good winter road conditions. As a result,
we received many letters of commendation from the public.
Bridges
Normal maintenance and repairs were carried out on all bridges and ferry landings in the district.
Ferries
Both the Albion ferry and Barnston Island ferry were kept busier with a larger
volume of traffic. Barnston Island ferry had a radar unit installed, thus, both ferries
are now radar equipped.
Albion ferry was closed for a week due to the Fraser River being frozen. In
the spring this ferry was also out of service for three weeks due to an extensive
inspection in one of the New Westminster shipyards.
Safety
Several safety awards were received during the year, including the award of
honour for the Cloverdale maintenance crew. Vehicle accidents were low considering the density of traffic in the district.
Chilliwack District
Roads
Maintenance.—All roads were well maintained throughout the year.   Mowers
operated continuously during the growing season, with particular attention to High-
 C 102 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
way No. 401. Shoulders and gravel medians were sprayed with soil sterilant. Brush-
kill was used on Highway No. 401 and other main roads. Dust preventatives were
used on gravel roads.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Pavement patching was carried out on all paved roads,
with more than normal repairs required due to frost damage.
Asphalt pavement was laid on 1.3 miles of the Sylvester Road, 1.4 miles of the
Chilliwack Lake Road, 0.1 mile of the Page Road, and 0.5 mile of the Bridal Falls
Road. On the Trans-Canada Highway at Bridal Falls, 0.6 mile of pavement was
laid one lane in width to accommodate left-turn slots. On the Lougheed Highway
an extension of a third-lane required 0.1 mile of pavement.
Construction.—Reconstruction was carried out on 0.45 mile of Sylvester Road,
0.32 mile of Sumas Mountain Road, and 2.0 miles of Morris Valley Road.
The Trans-Canada Highway at Bridal Falls was widened to accommodate left-
turn slots. At Whatcom Road Tourist Bureau on the same highway, deceleration
and acceleration lanes were constructed and the parking-lot area was increased in
size.
Snow Removal. ■— Snowfall was heavy and drifting conditions were severe.
Snow-blowing equipment was required to open side roads.   All main roads were
kept open.   Crews operated in shifts during winter months, and roads received good
coverage.
Bridges
Bridges were generally maintained in good condition. A 32-foot 6-inch steel-
stringer span bridge was constructed over Frost Creek on Columbia Valley Road.
A 52-foot 2-inch pile trestle, treated-timber bridge was constructed over Chilqua
Slough on Sylvester Road.
Buildings
The workshop for the bridge crew in the Mission Yard was remodelled. Heating was installed in the district stockroom in the Mission Yard.

River, Chemainus River, Haslam Creek, and Britannia Creek Bridges.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 103
Snow Removal
Unusually heavy snowfall, averaging 5 feet, with record sustained low temperatures, occurred during the year, which put heavy demands on men and equipment
and on salt supplies. Only minor traffic stoppages occurred due to snow conditions
on bridges.

the Salmon Arm District. On June 5, 1968, a massive slide on Camp Creek, near
Griffin Lake, covered the Trans-Canada to depths up to 20 feet over a distance
of 600 feet, necessitating a closure of the highway for 48 hours while the debris was
removed.
A programme of cleaning ditches and small slides along all trunk highways in
the district was undertaken by local forces, using the regional hy-hoe excavator.
Weeds were sprayed along the Trans-Canada Highway and regular mowing was
carried out to maintain the appearance and safety of the highway. The dust-control
programme was continued, with road-oil and calcium chloride being used on
numerous gravel roads.
Construction.—Reconstruction, widening, realignment, and gravelling were
carried out on a total of 7.1 miles on the following roads: Douglas Lake Road,
1.5 miles; Squilax-Angelmont Road, 0.7 mile; Yankee Flats Road, 1.0 mile;
Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road, 1.0 mile; Sorrento-Eagle Bay Road, 1.0 mile;
Chase Bridge Road, 0.5 mile; and Chase-Falkland Road, 1.4 miles. One mile of
the Little Shuswap Lake Road was hard-surfaced with an MC-2 roadmix by local
forces.   Major improvements were made to 18.2 miles of sundry roads.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was average, but winter temperatures were much
lower than normal, causing severe spring break-up problems on many roads and
highways. Chemicals and a two-shift winter maintenance programme controlled
snow and icing on major highways.
Bridges
Reconstruction of the south approach trestle on Chase Bridge (No. 59) was
completed, allowing load restrictions to be removed from this bridge.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 105
Deck repairs, cleaning, and minor repairs were carried out on numerous sundry
bridges. A temporary log-stringer bridge was constructed on the Trans-Canada
Highway to replace a steel and concrete structure destroyed in the Camp Creek
slide.
McBride District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance of the roads in the district was carried
out, with particular emphasis on the improvement of signing along the trunk highways. In addition to spot-gravelling and strengthening of side roads, 2 miles of
road in the Dunster area were widened, graded, and gravelled.
Day Labour.—Ditching and widening of 14 miles of the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway between McBride and Tete Jaune Cache was completed; the
whole of this 40-mile section was strengthened with pit-run gravel, and surface
gravel was laid down. Five miles of pulvimix were laid down between McBride
and Lamming Mills.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall in the area was less than normal. Only 33 inches
were recorded at Red Pass after January 15, compared to 63 inches and 95 inches
for the same period in 1967 and 1966. Extremely cold weather kept activity at
a minimum, but shifts were maintained night and day, seven days a week, except
on the coldest days. The North Thompson Highway and the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway from Tete Jaune Cache to the Alberta border were kept snow
and ice free for most of the winter.
Bridges
District crews dismantled the old Fraser Bridge at McBride. The Howe truss
over the Dore River was removed and replaced with a 110-foot D.S.R. Bailey bridge.
A number of small bridges on the detours at bridge-sites along the highway were
redecked and widened, or replaced to improve winter driving conditions.
Kamloops East Bridge, North Thompson Highway.  Over-all length, 588 feet;
roadway width, 56 feet.
 C 106
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
General
Emphasis was placed on the training and building up of maintenance crews to
handle the added responsibilities arising from increased traffic on the new highways.
Vernon District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the district. An extensive brushing, clean-up, and chemical brush-control project
was undertaken on a 94-mile section of Highways Nos. 97, 97a, and 97b, as well
as a 16-mile section of Highway No. 6, Vernon to Lumby. A new brush-control
chemical proved very effective on the Highway No. 6 section.
An extensive patching programme was undertaken on Highways Nos. 97 and
and 97a to provide more comfortable travelling.
Again, our no-post guard-rail plant, operated by the district, produced 9,450
feet of guard-rail and 59 bullnoses to meet the needs of the nine maintenance districts in Region 2. In addition, our fibreglassing plant produced special no-post
guard-rail forms for the Bridge Branch in Victoria and Saanich District.
Two hundred of the new Department of Highways picnic tables were also
produced and made available to ship to various roadside rest-stops throughout the
Province.
Construction and Paving.—A 4.72-mile section of the Enderby-Mabel Lake
Road and 0.8 mile of the Dolly Varden Road, east of Enderby, were gravelled and
prepared for pulvimixing. The 3.5-mile section of the Lumby-Mabel Lake Road was
also prepared for pulvimixing. A total of 3.33 miles of roadmix paving was undertaken by district forces on various roads throughout the district. A 3.0-mile section
of Deep Creek Road, off Highway No. 97b, was reconstructed and gravelled on a
day-labour basis by district forces, and the 0.6-mile section of Dixon Dam Road
in the East Vernon area was reconstructed and gravelled.
A crushed gravel contract was called for 82,000 tons of %-inch minus for
three pits throughout the district in preparation for future paving projects.
Snow Removal.—The past winter saw the heaviest accumulation of snow in
living memory in Vernon and other low areas of the district. During late December
and early January, crews were hard pressed to keep ahead of the snowfall. Unusual
drifting conditions were experienced especially in the North Okanagan Lake area.
Extreme cold weather caused many hardships, but utilization of the winter shift
system proved effective during the tough winter.
The Monashee Pass and Silver Star Park areas experienced slightly above-
average snowfalls.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on all district bridges. Major repairs
begun last year to the Mara Bridge (No. 723) over the Shuswap River, south of
Mara Lake, were completed. The twin Howe trusses on Baxter Bridge (No. 539)
over the Shuswap River on the Trinity Valley Road were extensively repaired by
replacing the mains and diagonals in the trusses, as well as the renewing of the caps.
Stream-channel improvements were again required for several minor bridges in the
Lumby area.
Buildings
An additional three bays were added to the existing shed at the No. 3 Yard
in Vernon to accommodate the fibreglassing and concrete fabricating shop.   These
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 107
facilities were provided for the production of the new Department of Highways
concrete picnic tables, no-post guard-rail, and fibreglass forms.
A contract for heating facilities and wiring was also completed. In addition,
a dry-storage shed was constructed for chemical storage in the same yard.
Interior and exterior painting and reroofing of the Lumby garage was completed. Interior repainting of the Enderby and Cherryville garage, as well as the
Vernon equipment shed, was also completed.
Property for a new establishment in Vernon has been acquired by the
Department of Public Works.
Kelowna District
Roads
Maintenance.—Traffic volumes continue to increase throughout the Okanagan
area, requiring increased maintenance on commuter roads as well as on main
highways. This maintenance includes additional signing, paving, shoulder maintenance, and improved safety features for areas of high-density population.
The winter maintenance has also been greatly increased with the servicing of
two ski areas.
Reconstruction.—Major improvements, totalling 12.96 miles in length, were
carried out on "fruit haul " roads.
Five miles of Joe Rich Road, Route No. 33, were reconstructed and are ready
for paving.
One and one-half miles of a third lane were constructed on Highway No. 97.
Two miles of reconstruction were carried out on ski-area access roads.
Paving.—A total of 4.55 miles of roadmix was completed by district forces.
An additional 10.55 miles of sealcoat was completed.
Snow Removal.—An above-average snowfall and below-normal temperatures
placed a heavy burden on the snow-removal equipment and operators.
All roads were maintained, with no inconvenience being experienced by the
travelling public.
Bridges
There were no new structures built. All bridges were maintained in satisfactory condition.
Penticton District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was effectively carried out, with no
serious problems encountered.
Numerous minor improvements, such as gravelling, ditching, and realignment,
were completed on many local roads.
A good standard of maintenance was realized on the main highways within the
district. Particular emphasis was placed on shouldering, ditching, and drainage
improvement, and patching. Some major patching and shoulder paving was completed on Highways Nos. 97 and 3a, using hot asphaltic concrete and a paver.
Clean up and sloping of borrow and gravel pits added to their aesthetic appearance.
A doubling in subdivision activity added to the work load substantially.
An oil-base dust-layer was applied to 42 miles of gravel rural and orchard
roads to reduce dust damage to vegetable and fruit crops.
Construction and Reconstruction.—An active year on reconstruction resulted
in a substantial improvement to many local roads. This work was principally
oriented toward preparation for paving.
 C 108 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1968/69
Considerable reconstruction was carried out on the Apex Ski Road in the form
of clearing, widening, and grade improvements on the lower standard sections.
Fewer traffic tie-ups were realized during the winter as a result.
Truck-lane construction on the Hope-Princeton Highway was continued.
Extensive channelization was constructed in the Manning Park headquarters area.
The truck lanes and channelization were hard-surfaced by Paving Branch contract.
On Highway No. 5 from Princeton north, 4.8 miles of widening and reconstruction was completed in preparation for Paving Contract S2168.
Construction on five short sections of relocation on the Princeton to Stirling
Creek section of Highway No. 3 were partially completed and will continue into
next year. Clearing and widening were also partially completed on this section in
preparation for a paving contract. Preparations were completed for construction
of a 2.7-mile truck lane near Yellow Lake on Highway No. 3a for the same
surfacing contract.
Surfacing.—Five miles of previously gravel-surfaced local roads were blade-
mix paved. In addition, with Paving Branch assistance, 4 miles of the Black Sage
Road near Oliver were pulvimixed, completing the surfacing of this route.
One mile of the Westbench Subdivision collector route was hotmix-paved under
contract.
Considerable progress was realized in the rejuvenation of local road pavements
by the application of 29.5 miles of sand-seal. Included were 10.3 miles of the
Copper Mountain Road near Princeton, 6.7 miles of the East Skaha Lake Road,
and 5.0 miles of the Green Mountain Road.
Snow Removal.—Extreme low temperatures were common in all areas.
Snowfall was considerably below average in the Similkameen Valley and Hope
to Princeton area. Occasional snowslides were experienced on the Hope to Princeton section of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway. However, except for minor
delays caused by clearing operations, there were relatively few traffic interruptions.
Snowfall in the Okanagan Valley was much above normal and severe drifting
was commonplace in January. Severe icing conditions in December and February
required above-normal amounts of sand and chemicals to cope with slippery driving
conditions.
The seven-day-per-week double-shift system was fully utilized and proved
effective.
Bridges
Major work was carried out on three local road bridges: Princeton to Hedley
No. 1, stringers, ties, and deck replaced; Princeton to Hedley No. 2, completely
reconstructed; and MacDonald (No. 174), widened, ties and deck replaced.
Routine bridge maintenance was carried out as required.
Okanagan Flood Control
Stream-flow and lake-level data were collected and maintained on the Okanagan River, and Okanagan, Skaha, Tuc-Ul-Nuit, and Osoyoos lakes respectively.
The operation of the Okanagan and Skaha Lakes dams was continued to suit
water storage and downstream-user needs.
A fencing and weed-control programme was initiated. Normal channel and
dyke maintenance continued throughout the entire system. Major slope stabilization and channel reconstruction was completed on 2,400 feet of channel downstream
from the Okanagan Lake dam. A total of 37,000 cubic yards of rock fill was used
for this work.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  109
Severe icing was experienced during the winter at all drop-structures. As
a result, flooding of low lying lands was common. Ice-blasting was undertaken in
cases where the problem became severe.
Merritt District
Roads
Maintenance.—District road maintenance was carried out on all roads with
continued attention to brushing, ditching, and general right-of-way improvements.
The use of simazine was continued with outstanding results.
This past year has been one of the heaviest for asphalt maintenance by district
forces, both in the Fraser Canyon and Merritt areas.
Snowfall and general winter conditions were much worse than average, with
the Fraser Canyon experiencing one of the worst winters in memory. First snowfall came in November and we were not free of snow until early spring. The
Canyon section was closed twice due to snowslides—February 2 for 8 hours and
February 11 for 21 hours. For example, the previous three-year average for
Boston Bar is 125 inches, and this year 216 inches. A major slide occurred on
Highway No. 8, 19 miles west of Merritt, where about 200 feet of road was lost.
On Highway No. 5, 21 miles north of Merritt, a 300-foot section slipped into
Nicola Lake.
Construction.—Reconstruction, relocation, grading, rebuilding of shoulders,
and new alignment were carried out on 18.40 miles of district roads by district
forces.
Bridges
Two minor bridges were replaced by multiplate culverts, two minor bridges
were reconstructed, and major repairs carried out on 14 others.
Ferries
Lytton Ferry and North Bend Ferry.—Ferries were well maintained by the
district bridge crew. No major repairs were necessary to Lytton ferry and two
haul-back cables replaced on North Bend ferry during the year. The Lytton ferry
was out of service from January 3, 1969, to April 8, 1969, due to extreme cold
and low water.
Lillooet District
Roads
Maintenance.—District roads were kept in good shape during the fiscal year.
The renewed paving on the Cariboo Highway kept frost damage to a minimum,
allowing Clinton maintenance crews to devote more time to side roads.
Elsewhere in the district, catch roads were cleared in slide areas and brush
control effectively carried out.
Reconstruction and Surfacing.—Fairly heavy reconstruction was carried out
on some 9 miles of roads, with lighter construction elsewhere in the district, particular attention being paid to the North Bonaparte and Gang Ranch roads.
Further reconstruction was also carried out on the Loon Lake and Lillooet to
Cache Creek roads, with some 1 Vi miles of construction being carried out through
the Fountain Reserve on the latter road.
On the newly constructed section of the Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway, 4.9
miles were pulvimixed, thus giving a total of 14 miles of paving in from the Cariboo
Highway.
 C 110
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
Elsewhere in the district, 1.3 miles of blademix was laid down.
Construction over new routes was minimal during the year, most of the above
work upgrading current locations.
Snow Removal.—Heavier-than-average snow conditions in the Bridge River
Valley caused minor slides. Elsewhere, the snowfall was average. Colder-than-
usual weather caused no difficulties. Greater use of chemicals on the main highways kept roads in good winter condition, with comprehensive snowploughing
maintenance schedules proving out elsewhere.
Bridges
Routine maintenance was carried out on district bridges. A new 70-foot
structure was built over the Cadwallader River at Bralorne. Three new bridges of
around 30-foot spans were built for the Indian Department on the west bank of
the Fraser below Lillooet. Fairly heavy maintenance was carried out on both the
300-foot suspension bridges.
Ferries
Big Bar reaction ferry gave good service throughout the year, with the passenger cable-car being used during the winter months.
Williams Lake District
Roads
Maintenance.—About 1,650 miles of the district's 2,200 were maintained on
a regular basis. Run-off and break-up problems were average. Of major concern
during most of the summer was the completion of river bank protection work at
Bella Coola and the raising and lengthening of three bridges. Some progress was
made roadmixing subdivision roads. In the face of ever-increasing logging and
general traffic, however, it is difficult to claim any material over-all improvement
in the district.
Construction.—Our main effort again was on the Horsefly and Canim Lake
roads, using the regional construction crew; completed were 4.6 and 2.6 miles
respectively.
A further 84.7 miles of road were reconstructed or improved by district
crews.
Paving.—One and one-half miles were completed at Williams Lake and 100
Mile House by district crews. Paving Branch crews finished a total of 5.4 miles
on the Canim Lake, Horsefly, and South Lakeside roads.
Bridges
Routine maintenance was carried out as required. A new Lilley Bridge,
constructed of treated lumber, was completed on a diversion of Canim Lake Road.
Bridges reconstructed were Assanany, Bradley Creek, Faessler, Tastsquan (temporary Bailey), Thorsen No. 1, Willis, and White. In the Bella Coola Valley,
Nusatsum River Bridge collapsed under a loaded truck. Traffic is detoured over
a private bridge. At Canoe Crossing, washed out by the Bella Coola River in
January, 1968, traffic is still detoured over a private bridge.

REGION No. 3
(D. F. Martin, Regional Highway Engineer, Nelson)
Nelson, Rossland, Grand Forks, New Denver, Cranbrook, Fernie, Golden,
and Revelstoke Highway Districts
Nelson District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on district roads throughout the year. Flash-flooding occurred in early June, resulting in considerable road
and bridge damage. Extensive clean-up and repair work followed through the late
summer and fall.
Construction.—An extensive programme of upgrading district secondary roads
was carried out. This included 21.7 miles of reconstruction, 6.70 miles of road-
mixing, and 6.25 miles of inverted prime surfacing.
Snow Removal.—Above-average snowfall was experienced, resulting in more
than usual difficulty with maintenance on some roads.     Conditions,  however,
generally were good.
Bridges
General maintenance was carried out on all district bridges. The flooding in
June washed out five bridges and damaged others. Two Bailey and three log-
stringer spans were used to replace lost bridges. Additionally, four other bridges
were reconstructed and one Bailey installed to replace Crawford Creek Bridge.
Ferries
Normal operation occurred on all ferries. The West Creston ferry was taken
out of service on October 31, 1968, for the winter.
Rossland District
Roads
A cool and wet summer season assisted in the maintenance of gravel roads and
gravel shoulders, but caused considerable delay and extra costs to day-labour
projects, especially bituminous surfacing. Once again many worth-while improvements were effected on the roads throughout the district. Reconstruction and minor
improvements took place over 16.19 miles of important side roads, and 16.0 miles
of the Southern Trans-Canada Highway received major shouldering attention,
which included a bituminous treatment by the inverted prime method of 4.0 miles.
A total of 9.25 miles of roads in the Ootischenia and Brilliant areas was also treated
by the inverted prime method and an additional 4.69 miles of district roads
received a roadmix pavement.
Snowfall far exceeded previous records, consequently, men and machines
operated to full capacity. The snowfall, however, was accompanied by relatively
cold weather and the maintenance of the travelled surface of the highways was, if
anythiug, easier than a normal winter with frequent freeze and thaw cycles.
Bridges
Beaver Creek Bridge (No. 1085), 160 feet, was reconstructed from the piles
up and the end bents were replaced by log cribbing. Other bridges received
normal cleaning, painting, and repair work. Materials were purchased to rebuild
Beaver Creek Bridge (No. 1194), 192 feet, and Shukin Bridge, upon which work
commenced in March.
 C  112 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
Ferries
The Castlegar ferry continued to provide good service, with only occasional
shut-downs for mechanical repairs and cable changes. On March 3rd, ferry hours
were reduced from 24 to 18 per day, with a resulting reduction in crew.
Buildings
Most buildings received minor maintenance and a general tidying programme
was put into effect. Yard-sites also were tidied, but the overcrowding in the
Rossland yard and garage tends to distract from the efforts put in.
Grand Forks District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the district. In the past winter, private access roads were kept open to the Phoenix
Ski Hill and also to the Mt. Baldy ski area.
Soil sterilant was applied to approximately 30 miles of shoulder on the
Southern Trans-Canada Highway, and brushing was completed from Paulson to
Grand Forks, and the area sprayed with weed- and brush-killer.
On the Southern Trans-Canada Highway, near Coryell, 1,800 feet of asphalt
guard-rail were replaced with no-post guard-rail. Approximately 2 miles of shoulder
restoration was completed in the Midway area.
Improvements were carried out on Wallace Mountain Road No. 75, and
brushing and widening was carried out on Rock Creek-Kelowna Road No. 33.
In the Village of Midway, the district reconstructed and constructed certain
village roads.   The work was done on a 50-per-cent cost-sharing basis.
Construction.—Reconstruction was completed on Kettle River Road No. 43.
Eight miles of road are now ready for paving.
Widening and realignment were carried out on Grand Forks-Franklin Road
No. 30, Brown Creek Road No. 84, and Christina Lake West Road No. 17.
Construction was completed on Boundary Creek Road No. 7, and brushing
was 60 per cent completed on Long Lake-Jewel Mine Road No. 46 along the west
side of the lake.   Access to the lake was also brushed out.
Paving.—On Boundary Creek Road No. 7, 2.3 miles of roadmix paving were
completed.
In the Grand Forks, Bridesville, Christina Lake and Anaconda Township
areas, 15.88 miles of seal-coating were completed.
One and one-half miles of penetration seal-paving were completed at Christina
Lake, Bridesville, and Greenwood areas.
The Paving Branch completed 60.8 miles of seal-coat in the district.
Snow Removal.—An extremely heavy snowfall was experienced throughout
the district along with very cold weather. All roads were kept open, but in some
instances we were a little later than usual servicing some of the side roads.
Bridges
General maintenance was carried out on all bridges throughout the district.
The deteriorated concrete deck on Rock Creek Canyon Bridge (No. 1330)
was scarified to a depth of approximately 1 inch, and a new concrete deck poured.
The work was performed under the direction of the Headquarters Bridge Department.   The district bridge crew worked on the site for over four months.
Major repairs were performed on the listed bridges: Lancashire (No. 267)
and Boundary Smelter (No. 6402), new deck- and hand-rails; Granby (No. 289),
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 113
renewed west approach;  and Westbridge (No. 335), renewed some lower-chord
sections.
During the year, core sections were taken from all truss bridges.
Buildings
A heating system was installed at the Beaverdell shop and the yard was
fenced. The doors of the Rock Creek shop were repaired and a concrete slab
poured at the Grand Forks shop.
New Denver District
Roads
Maintenance.—Maintenance was normal, with minor improvements being
made on more side roads than usual.
Emphasis was placed on acquisition of right-of-way to widen existing 40-foot
roads to 66 feet, particularly in the Nakusp suburban area.
The anticipated disruption of main and feeder roads by the High Arrow Dam
project required planning for access and extraordinary maintenance when the
Arrow Lakes were held at top flood-level for several months.
Flash floods at the end of May, caused by warm rains at the height of snow-melt,
washed out many bridges and culverts and required extraordinary maintenance.
The district is fairly well equipped for heavy snowfall conditions and with the
shift system and some extra crew, no trouble was experienced in a winter of heavy
snowfall.
Construction.—The main activities were centred on the Arrow Lakes and
included work by contract and day labour with shared costs by the British Columbia
Power and Hydro Authority.
North of Nakusp on Route 23, 9.0 miles of standard road were completed
with 8.0 miles roadmixed.
Near Needles, 10 miles of contract and day labour work were completed ready
for roadmix in the next season. These are links with the Monashee section and
access roads to Edgewood.
Bridges
The two-span glulam bridge at Halfway was washed out by the May 31st to
June 1st floods. The bridge was replaced by a double- single-chord reinforced
Bailey structure and the two 60-foot spans recovered intact from the stream and
moved by barge and mover's dollies to the Upper Whatshan Bridge and McCormack
Bridge for replacement of existing 50-foot King trusses. Creosoted piling was
driven at the McCormack site and that span put in place.
The Duncan River Bridge was redecked and given major repairs, and one
small bridge at Mulvey Creek rebuilt.
Two bridges, Bjerkness and Summit, were replaced by large multiplate culverts.
Ferries
The Needles and Arrow Lakes ferries were maintained in spite of continued
high water-level. The unit at Needles was replaced by one of the Castlegar ferries
in May. The service on the Arrow Park ferry was curtailed as the British Columbia
Hydro and Power Authority took over the lands west of the river and was finally
turned over to British Columbia Hydro on March 31, 1969.
 C 114 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance, including pavement patching, was carried out on all district roads. Many wooden culverts on side roads were replaced
and additional culverts installed to improve drainage.
Either oil or calcium chloride was placed as a dust-layer on side roads near
residences.
A total of 8.75 miles of road have come under the jurisdiction of the City
of Kimberley, resulting from an expansion of the city boundaries.
Construction.—A total of 1.24 miles on the Skookumchuck Pulpmill Road
Was constructed.
On the Mission Road and Mission-Wycliffe Road, 7.65 miles were reconstructed and paved. The paving consisted of 5.85 miles of roadmix and 1.80 miles
of double flushcoat.
On the Wardner-Fort Steele Road, 3.34 miles were reconstructed.
Gravelling and roadmix paving were completed on 1.25 miles of the Black
Bear Road.
At Yahk, 1.47 miles of streets were gravelled and paved and 0.42 mile of
new streets constructed.
In the Cranbrook area, 1.23 miles of streets were paved and 1.14 miles
repaved.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was above average throughout the district. All
roads were kept open, with minor delays on some side roads due to severe drifting.
Bridges
Widening of Mark Creek Bridge No. 893 at Kimberley was completed. A
double sidewalk was constructed and concrete overlay placed on the deck.
A concrete overlay was placed on the deck of Irishman Creek Bridge No. 1476.
Cleaning and repainting was carried out on Curzon (No. 872), Moyie River,
Yahk (No. 515), Ryan (No. 766), Moyie River, and Swansea (No. 764) Bridges.
Buildings
At Cranbrook a new office for the mechanical foreman and a foremen's tool-
house were constructed.   The interior of the garage was painted.
New fuel-pumps and tank were installed at Yahk.
Fernie District
Roads
Maintenance.—A major mud- and rock-slide near Natal claimed two lives
and required major work to remove debris.
Spring run-off was moderate due to early mild weather. A few creek and
river bank erosion problems were experienced, but none was serious.
Continued use of brush-kill, simazine, and manual control kept weed and
brush growth reduced on main highways and some side roads.
Side-road improvements by grading and gravelling as well as clean up, ditching, shouldering, and sign installation as a continuing programme on the Southern
Trans-Canada Highway to improve right-of-way appearance occupied area maintenance crews all summer.
Construction.—Reconstruction, including gravelling, was completed on 1.5
miles of Elk Valley Road No. 4 and on 3.0 miles of Mansfield Road No. 5.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 115
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was above normal and temperatures were extremely
low.
Bridges
Major repairs were carried out on the deck and abutments of Hosmer Bridge
(No. 361) and to the north approach span of Wilson Bridge (No. 799).
Golden District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads.
Pavement patching and crack filling due to heavy frost damage was above normal.
Signs were repaired and replaced where necessary. Extensive weed and brush
control on shoulders and rights-of-way was carried out on trunk highways and
numerous side roads by slashing and use of chemicals.
Extensive ditching and snowslide removal was made necessary by an unusual
heavy snowfall throughout the winter in the Kicking Horse Canyon section of the
Trans-Canada Highway.
Construction.—Major reconstruction was carried out on the Westside Road
from Mile 1.8 to Mile 5.7, north of Dutch Creek.
A total of 11.7 miles of side roads was reconstructed by widening, installing
new culverts, and gravelling.   Asphalt roadmix pavement was laid on 5.88 miles.
Bridges
The North and South Salmon Bridges on the Westside Road were completely
reconstructed on new sites.
Repairs were carried out on all other bridges as required. Major repairs were
made to Bush River Bridge.
Miscellaneous
An additional salt-bin with storage capacity of 60 tons was constructed at
Golden.
Revelstoke District
Roads
Maintenance.-—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the year, with considerable gravelling and regravelling being done on the side roads
and subdivision roads throughout the district. The heavy rains in June and
September, 1968, caused considerable flood damage, including slides and shoulder
damage on the Trans-Canada Highway at Clanwilliam and Summit Lake. Slides,
washouts, and extensive shoulder damage occurred on the Revelstoke-Mica Creek
Highway, with the major washouts being at 30 Mile, 68 Mile, and Birch Creek.
The trash rack at Nichol Creek was removed and the creek bed widened and
deepened to prevent further blockage by larger boulders and debris.
Snowfall in the Revelstoke District was about average, but due to the frequency of light snowfalls, more than the average amount of sand was used to
combat the icing conditions. There were minor slides on the Trans-Canada Highway east and west of Revelstoke, and on the Revelstoke-Mica Creek Highway, but
no extensive road closure resulted.
Construction.—Work was continued on Galena Pass Road No. 810, with
90 per cent of the clearing and 5 per cent of the construction being completed
on a 1.46-mile section.
The Upper Illecillewaet Bridge approaches were completed, including 0.72
mile of reconstruction and paving with plantmix pulvimix.
 C 116 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1968/69
Work on 8.68 miles of Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road No. 520 was completed,
including new construction and paving with plantmix base on a 4.51-mile section,
and widening, ditching, gravelling, and plantmix base on the remainder.
Brushing, ditching, gravelling, and pulvimixing were also completed on 1.34
miles of road in the Big Eddy district, Leach Street No. 944 and Newlands Road
No. 542.
Bridges
All necessary repairs to bridges were carried out, but again as in previous
years the routine maintenance has fallen slightly behind due to the bridge crew
being extensively employed on ferry repairs and projects.
The bearing-plate caps were repaired at the east abutment of Columbia River
Bridge (No. 54).
Armstrong Lake Bridge (No. 551) was completely renewed.
Protection-rails were installed in the apron of LaForme Creek culvert to
prevent concrete from scouring.
Ferries
Considerable work was required on all ferry ramps due to the high water,
log bundles, and increased traffic volume, which was caused by the many construction projects in the area.
Hold-back of the water-level during the winter months caused severe icing
conditions at 12 Mile ferry, resulting in considerable work being done to keep the
channel open.
Due to the channel freezing over, the 24 Mile ferry was taken out of service
during the first week of January, 1969, and the M.V. Lardeau commenced the new
run from Galena Bay to Shelter Bay.
REGION No. 4
(L. A. Broddy, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George)
Quesnel, Prince George, Pouce Coupe, Fort St. John, Vanderhoof, Burns Lake,
Smithers, Terrace, and Prince Rupert Highway Districts
Quesnel District
Roads
Maintenance.—Damage to roads in the district was extensive during the spring
break-up. A large number of frost boils occurred on the Cariboo Highway in the
Dog Prairie to Macalister section. The Fraser, Blackwater, Nazko, and Hydraulic
roads also suffered, requiring considerable regravelling on many sections.
Oil as a dust palliative was applied to 7.3 miles of the more heavily travelled
rural roads. Also, calcium chloride was applied to the Barkerville Road as a dust
palliative over a length of 28 miles between Wingdam and Barkerville.
Continuous grading was carried out on all gravel roads in the district, along
with continuous patching of the paved roads.
Construction.—Reconstruction continued on the Barkerville Road, where 1.1
miles were completed along with 4.2 miles of clearing in preparation for next year's
construction.
The first 1.5 miles of both the Nazko and Fraser Roads were reconstructed in
preparation for paving and 14 miles of minor roads were improved and gravelled.
On the Quesnel-Hixon and Quesnel-Hydraulic Roads, 1.4 miles of construction
was commenced for the Department of Lands and 2.85 miles of pulvimix was
laid.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 117
The ditching programme in the Red Bluff area was continued, with 1.5 miles
of ditches being constructed. Partial approaches sufficient for access by the steel
contractor were built for the new Fraser Bridge. A storm drain was relocated on
Front Street in Quesnel to enable building of senior citizens' homes.
A traffic island at the junction of Highway No. 97 and the Quesnel-Hixon
Road was constructed. A truck lane was built for safer access to the Quesnel
weigh-scale site.
Snow Removal.—The winter was colder than average with several weeks of
record-breaking below-zero weather, which created maintenance problems. Snowfall over most of the district was not heavy, as shown by the below-average snowfall
of 60 inches recorded at Quesnel.
Bridges
General maintenance was carried out on all structures. Three new bridges
were built, another was 80 per cent completed, and two others were redecked.
A new deck and some new truss members were replaced on the Old Quesnel
River Bridge, by the Department's crew in co-operation with the Town of Quesnel
works crew.
A sidewalk was added to the Hixon Creek Bridge.
Prince George District
Roads
Maintenance.—Gravel and grader maintenance was carried out on all roads
in the district.   Roads in heavily populated areas were oiled to assist in dust control.
Construction.—Two miles of Giscombe Road were reconstructed and additional work in preparation to paving, which was begun this year.
On North Nechako Road, 1.3 miles were constructed to high standard.
Earth work was started on the Blackwater Road (Project No. 1826) and
some pit-run gravel placed.
Snow Removal.—Double-shift seven-days-a-week service was provided on
most district roads.
Pavement in the district was kept ice free most of the winter by the use of
chemicals.
Bridges
Several bridges were reconstructed and old bridges replaced with large-
diameter culverts. These were Howieson, Honeymoon, Rolston (reconstructed),
and Trappers and Caswell (culverts).
Ferries
Hansard and Isle Pierre ferries operated normally. Work was done on Hansard
Railway Bridge in anticipation of the April opening and elimination of the ferry.
Pouce Coupe District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance on all roads was carried out with improved standards possible as the weather was reasonably dry. Extensive crack-
filling and patching were required on the John Hart-Peace River Highway and the
Alaska Highway. Ten miles of right-of-way levelling was completed on the John
Hart-Peace River Highway in preparation for seeding of grass. Major slide repair
was completed on nearly a mile of the same highway at the Kiskatinaw River cross-
 C 118
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1968/69
ing. Many miles of highway shouldering were improved with gravelling and
simazine treatment.
Construction.—The largest construction programme ever undertaken in the
district was completed on main side roads and farm settlement roads this year,
with 14.9 miles of new construction, 112.6 miles of reconstruction, and 200 miles
of gravelling completed. An additional 8.9 miles of soil-cement stabilization was
finished on the Dawson Creek-Clayhurst Road.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall this year was well below normal. However, crews
were kept busy salting and sanding as icy conditions were a constant problem.
Bridges
A new concrete-stringer bridge was constructed on the John Hart-Peace River
Highway at Centurion Creek at Chetwynd. Several minor bridges were constructed
on farm roads.
Ferries
The Clayhurst ferry operated on a normal schedule with winter shutdown and
an ice bridge crossing being utilized.
Fort St. John District
Spring run-off was comparatively moderate, resulting in minor washouts and
some erosion of shoulders.   However, no major damage occurred.
The day-labour work was commenced early, with reconstruction of 1.6 miles
of Roads Nos. 242 to 269 in preparation for paving.
During the first part of June, work was started on the reconstruction of the
Hudson Hope Road, and by December, 29.5 miles of major reconstruction and
gravelling of 8-inch to 10-inch surface was completed, with the exception of about
3 miles of major hill sections. The road was constructed to a paving standard,
40-foot width subgrade, with adequate embankment and proper drainage. Also,
approximately 9 miles of barbed-wire fence were erected along the right-of-way
boundary.
The East Bypass Road No. 146, from Road No. 101 to Mile 46 of the Alaska
Highway, a distance of 5.3 miles, was constructed to a paving standard with 6 inches
of gravel surfacing. The right-of-way settlements were completed and all necessary
fences erected.
The district crews filled cracks on 83.8 miles of paved road last year.
Main feeder roads were constructed to a paving standard and gravelled as
follows:—
Road No. 101:  North-east side of Fort St. John Creek to Jamieson's Corner,
13.0 miles.   This is the major access to farm and oil industry north of
Fort St. John.
Road No. 103:  Beatton River Hill to junction of Road No. 108, 12.0 miles.
Access to farm, oil, and lumber industries north-east of the Beatton River
and Alberta Border.
Road No. 137:  Jamieson's Corner to Peterson's Store, 7.0 miles.   This road
is access to farm and oil industry and to the areas north-east of the
Beatton River.
Road No. 107:  P.G.E. underpass to Baldonnel.   Major farm and oil industry
access, and to Two Rivers-Baldonnel area.
In addition, 24.2 miles of farm and settlement roads were reconstructed and
gravelled.   This work was done on the following roads:  Nos. 253, 242, 269, 251,
245, 235, 136, 276, 203, 262, 279, 244, and 271.   Two and one-half miles of
roads, Nos. 238 and 264a, were reconstructed and gravelled over new route.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  119
Furthermore, regravelling was done on the following roads: Nos. 277, 110,
121, 243, and 107, with a total of 9.5 miles of farm, settlement, and school bus
routes covered. Also, 12.0 miles of regravelling was done on Route No. 31,
Watson Lake-Stewart Highway, south of the Yukon Border, and numerous short
sections were improved and gravelled on the Atlin Highway No. 2. Minor regrad-
ing was done on 16 miles of the following farm and settlement roads: Nos. 247,
245, 262, 267, 257, 258, 248, 129, 250, and 266.
Again this year, work was done for British Columbia Hydro and Power
Authority in the Hudson Hope area, where 5.5 miles of new resettlement road (No.
190) were constructed and gravelled from Summer's Ranch buildings to Dunlevy
Creek, and 0.5 mile was constructed and gravelled to provide access from Road
No. 190 to the I.P.E.C. Camp.
In addition to the roads, various bridges and structures were built, and are
listed as follows:—
On the Atlin Highway, Hitchcock Bridge (No. 104) was replaced with a two
17.5-foot span pile-trestle bridge and the Fourth of July Bridge (No. 110)
was replaced with a three 19-foot span bridge.
In the Hudson Hope area on the Resettlement Road No. 190, a four 19-foot
span and one 32-foot span pile-trestle bridge were constructed at Gravel
Hill Creek for British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority, and a cattle-
guard was constructed on this road.
Fish Creek Bridge (No. 58) was widened from 20 feet to 28 feet.
The Bailey bridge section of the Halfway River Bridge on the Hudson Hope
Highway was extended 20 feet in order that a deteriorating pier could be replaced.
The centre pier of the bridge was reinforced, using 12-inch I-beams.
Also, on the Hudson Hope Highway, curb drains were installed on the new
Lynx and Farrell Creek Bridges. Two cattle-passes were constructed at the
Rutledge and Ardill Ranches.
In order to provide access to lands beyond the southerly end of Prespatou
Creek, a 57-foot pile-trestle bridge was constructed at the site of the collapsed
Lillico Bridge.
A traffic island was constructed and a traffic turning-pattern was established
at the junction of the paved road (No. 255) and the Alaska Highway.
At the junction of 96th Avenue and MacKenzie Street in Fort St. John, 104
feet of 36-inch storm sewer was replaced.
The winter brought record-breaking average temperatures, causing the frost
to penetrate deep into the ground.    Snowfall, however, was below average.
The district continued to maintain and snowplough the 1,821.5 miles of road
in the North Peace and Atlin North Electoral Districts, which includes the roads
around Telegraph Creek, Atlin, Cassiar-Stewart Highway, as well as keeping in
operation during the summer months the Stikine River ferry.
Vanderhoof District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads in the
district. A continuing programme of ditching and high-grading on several side
roads eliminated many problems and extended the mileage of our upgraded roads
by an additional 6 miles.
Construction.—Four miles of Highway No. 27 were reconstructed and 2
miles upgraded, preparatory to paving. Eight miles of the Tache Indian Reserve
Road were gravelled and burning carried out on 10 miles of previous construction.
 C 120 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1968/69
The year 1969 should see a constructed road to the reserve. Six miles of the
Pinchi Lake Road were reconstructed to serve the Cominco Mercury Mine. Three
miles of reconstruction were carried out on the Fort Fraser-Stella and the
Francois Lake Roads.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was very low due to extreme cold weather which
enabled the district to keep all roads open with very few problems.
Buildings
The Fraser Lake maintenance depot was completed, and a foreman and crew
established to serve the area. Work commenced on the new maintenance depot in
Vanderhoof and is expected to be completed for occupancy in 1969.
Bridges
The Lower Gaffney, Tslicoh No. 2, Sinkut, Porter, Thirty-four Mile, and
Fortune Bridges were reconstructed. Major repairs were carried out on the
Nechako No. 1, Nautley, and Omineca Bridges. The Ocock Bridge was eliminated
and replaced by a 16-foot multiplate pipe. Routine maintenance was carried out
on several other bridges in the district, and all truss structures were inspected and
tested for rot conditions at the critical points.
Burns Lake District
Roads
Maintenance.—During spring break-up, considerable pavement failure occurred on Highway No. 16, especially between Burns Lake and Rose Lake and 10
miles west of Houston.
In the middle of May, Buck Creek and Bulkley River caused flooding in the
Houston area.   Damage was minor.
The pull grader was again used to good advantage on side roads.
Six miles of Babine Road No. 200 and 2 miles of Palling Road No. 88 were
gravelled.
Construction.—Due to a wet summer, progress on all day-labour projects
was slow.
On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, construction of the Houston
Bridge approaches was 90 per cent completed.
Fourteen miles of the same highway west from Houston were widened in
preparation for paving.
On the North Francois Highway, 2.5 miles were reconstructed and gravelled
and roadmix asphalt was laid on 4.2 miles.
On the Topley Landing Highway, clearing, grubbing, stripping, and culvert
installation were carried out between Mile 0.0 and Mile 2.5 of Section 1. Pit-run
gravel was laid on 1 mile. Five miles of clearing and grubbing were completed
on Section 2.
A total of 2.0 miles of gravel-pit access roads was constructed to Hutchinson
pit, Evergreen pit, and Six Mile pit.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was below average, but alternate rain and freezing
in early part of the winter made extensive use of salt necessary.
Bridges
Craker Bridge No. 213, a 76.5-foot log-stringer span, was reconstructed.
A new deck was laid on Brewer Bridge No. 468.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  121
Ferries
New engines were installed in the Francois Lake ferry. Due to ice conditions,
the ferry was out of operation from January 12, 1969, to February 18, 1969. An
experimental bubble system was installed to open an area in the middle of the
lake. A channel was sawed and blasted, after which the ferry was able to resume
operation.
Two new dolphins were constructed at the landings.
Buildings
A new assembly-room was built in existing building in the Burns Lake yard.
Salt storage-sheds were built at Houston and Burns Lake.
Smithers District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance carried out on all roads throughout the
district. A programme of simazine and brush-spraying was carried out on the
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. Chemical storage sheds were built at Smithers
and Hazelton.
Construction.—Summer day-labour work consisted of the completion of
gravelling on the Smithers Bypass, the reconstruction and gravelling of 0.7 mile
of the Tatlow Road, and the construction of 3.4 miles of the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway on new alignment at Cow Creek, including the gravelling and
fencing.
Snow Removal.—Total snowfall was less than that of last year. We had
extremely low temperatures for long periods, giving more equipment problems.
However, all roads were kept open and in good condition during the winter.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on district bridges, some small structures
being renewed on side roads.
Ferries
The reaction ferry at Cedarvale provided normal service during the summer
months. During the winter months the aerial basket provided service for passengers
only.
Terrace District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance was carried out on all roads within the
district.
An extensive pavement-patching programme was carried out on Highway No.
16w and crack-filling on Highway No. 16e and Highway No. 25.
The brush-cutting unit was used to good advantage on Highway No. 16w.
Construction.—Some riprap was placed between Mile 50 and Mile 60 on
Highway No. 16w. However, winter conditions closed the job down on December 5th.
A primary crusher was set up at Mile 29 on Highway No. 16w and broke
50,000 yards of material.
Snow Removal.—Snow-removal operations were relatively fight, with slightly
less than normal snowfalls. Continuing cold weather during January and February
caused considerable frost-heaving and pavement cracks. However, due to extremely good weather in March, break-up conditions were not severe.
 C 122
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1968/69
Bridges
Extensive repairs were carried out on 10 minor bridges. A new deck was
placed on the Terrace Bridge.
Core-testing of the major structures between Terrace and Prince Rupert was
done and a considerable amount of rot discovered in many of the Howe truss
bridges, the worst being in the Khyex River Bridge, a 230-foot Howe truss structure.
Major repairs are under way at the present time.
Ferries
The Usk ferry was taken out of service on December 5, 1968, and placed back
in service on April 30, 1969.
A cable-car for foot-passengers was in service during winter months.
The Copper ferry was taken out of service November 15, 1968, and placed
back on May 2, 1969. No service was provided during winter months. This ferry
provides a very marginal service, due to the river conditions at the site.
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads. Soil sterilization on road shoulders was done on Highway No. 16 along the Skeena River, the
road west of Sandspit to Alliford Bay, the Oona River paths, and the Dodge Cove
Road. Right-of-way seeding was carried out on the road from Queen Charlotte
City to Masset. The Dodge Cove Road was gravelled.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Queen Charlotte City-Masset Road
was continued, with 3.7 miles north of Port Clements being cleared and stripped
and 5.9 miles of road grade rebuilt to a 30-foot top. Riprap was placed along 4.3
miles of Highway No. 16 where it is adjacent to the Skeena River. The Rainy
Creek Bridge in Stewart was replaced with culverts.
Snow Removal.—An exceptionally long, cold winter produced less than normal
snowfall at Stewart and Alice Arm, normal snowfall at Prince Rupert, and four
times the normal amount on the Queen Charlotte Islands. A winter shift system
was used at most depots to provide a better service.
The Queen Charlotte Island snowfall presented many problems with inexperienced operators and inadequate equipment. Snow piles 8 feet high were not
uncommon and heavy drifting occurred near Sandspit and Skidegate.
Ferries
The Prince Rupert Ferry Services (1967) Ltd. continued to provide service
to Dodge Cove on a subsidized basis.
Buildings and Yards
At Port Clements the yard was enlarged with waste fill, a salt-shed and sign-
shed were erected. A salt-shed was constructed 5 miles north of Skidegate. The
Alice Arm yard was fenced.

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF EXPENDITURE
The following pages disclose in detail Departmental expenditures for the fiscal
year 1968/69.
Expenditures incurred during the period under review for repairs, maintenance, and reconstruction of roads, bridges, ferries, etc., remained at a similar level
to those incurred in the previous fiscal year, however, the total gross expenditure
increased to an all-time high of $133,740,759.43. This increase is entirely attributable to the operations of the British Columbia Ferries Division, which now operates
under the jurisdiction of the Minister of Highways. The graphs on the following
pages illustrate the effect of the ferry operation on the total expenditure.
A. E. Rhodes,
Comptroller of Expenditure.
