 REPORT OF THE CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER C 17
REPORT OF THE CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER
Submitted herewith are reports from the Senior Design Engineer, Director of
Construction, Senior Paving Engineer, Bridge Construction Engineer, Senior Traffic
Engineer, and Senior Maintenance Engineer.
The total length of final location surveys completed during the year was 259
miles and the total length of office design, including estimates, completed was 172
miles.
There were 136 design assignments handled by the Bridge Design Branch.
Over 98 miles of roads were constructed or reconstructed by contract. Sections
between Nakusp and Fauquier on the Vernon-Slocan Highway and between Shelter
Bay and Revelstoke on the Big Bend Highway were completed this year. Both of
these highways were required to be relocated due to construction of the Hugh Keen-
leyside Dam at Castlegar.
There was a marked increase in the length of plantmixed asphalt concrete pavement laid, the total being over 335 miles. However, only 270 miles of roadmixed
pavement were completed, which is considerably less than that in the previous year.
Construction was completed on a total of 38 bridges. Of these, 21 are on the
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway and the North Thompson Highway. Another
33 structures are under construction.
In summary, I am pleased to report that the amount of construction completed
on grading, paving, and bridge projects during the year can be considered to be very
satisfactory.
J. A. Dennison,
Chief Highway Engineer.
 C 18 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1969/70
REPORT OF THE SENIOR DESIGN ENGINEER
The position of Senior Design Engineer involves responsibility for the entire
design function in the Department of Highways excluding the design of vessels in
the ferry services and excluding electrical, mechanical, and electronic design and
pavement design.
Reporting directly to the Senior Design Engineer are the Senior Bridge Design
Engineer, the Director of Location, and the Dock Design Engineer. The latter's
function also includes construction and maintenance as well as design of British
Columbia Ferries Division terminals including docking facilities, therefore over-all
responsibility for this function also rests with the Senior Design Engineer.
BRIDGE DESIGN
L. C. Johnson, Bridge Design Engineer
During the year Bridge Design proceeded on structures on the main highways
and, in particular, work was carried out on 31 structures on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway, 19 on the North Thompson Highway, nine on the Patricia Bay
Highway (including three pedestrian overpasses), and four on the Shelter Bay-
Revelstoke Highway.
Design of structures was also carried out on the established main highways
including 10 new structures on the Trans-Canada Highway, three on the Garibaldi
Highway, and three over the Roberts Bank railway.
Work also continued on the various maintenance projects.
In all, Bridge Design worked on 136 design assignments, some of which will
be continued into next year.
In addition, considerable office time was spent on load limit calculations for
investigating overloads on bridges, fabricator's shop drawings, examination of consulting engineer's submissions, approval of private structures over and under Provincial highways, examination of submissions for carrying utilities on bridge structures, design and draughting for the Dock Design Engineer, and inspection of structural steel welded fabrication.
One design engineer is employed full time in organizing the Branch's use of
the computer.   Increased use has enabled more complex problems to be solved.
In keeping with the more efficient filing systems now being utilized by the
Service, the Branch has commenced to miniaturize all bridge drawings, including
fabricator's shop drawings and ferry-landing drawings. Approximately 16,000
drawings will be miniaturized and indexed.
The Senior Bridge Design Engineer was appointed to the Canadian Standards
Association Committee on Highway Bridges. The C.S.A. Standard-S6, the Design
of Highway Bridges, is in the process of being revised. This resulted in a subsequent
assignment as the Chairman of the sub-committee responsible for recommending
revisions to the Timber Design section of the standard.
The Department is again participating in the C.G.R.A. Committee on Bridge
Scour by appointing a Supervising Design Engineer as a delegate of the committee
which is producing a guide to bridge hydraulics.
 REPORT OF SENIOR DESIGN ENGINEER
C 19
In September the position of Bridge Inspection Engineer was placed under the
direction of the Senior Design Engineer. The Bridge Inspection Engineer is responsible for liaison with the Senior Maintenance Engineer and the Regional Highway Engineer for the purpose of structural inspection where damage or structural
problems develop. General inspection is carried out by the District officials. To
date, 15 structures have been subjected to very detailed inspection arising from
either special maintenance problems or load reclassification required on older structures. In addition, complete inspections have been made on five steel structures
on main highways.

DOCK DESIGN
T. A. Tasaka, Dock Design Engineer
Major reconstruction was carried out for the British Columbia Ferries Division, during the year, on Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen ferry terminals. This was to
enable the lengthened ferries to operate, and involved modifications to marine works
and to passenger-loading facilities for promenade deck loading of pedestrians. Also,
to increase efficiency in ship movement, an underwater rock pinnacle was blasted
out of Gosse Passage adjacent to Swartz Bay terminal to enable the ferries to use
that channel at all tide levels.
The new ferry terminals at Heriot Bay and Quathiaski Cove, on Quadra Island,
and the new terminal at Whaletown, on Cortes Island, were completed for British
Columbia Department of Highways ferries. Rebuilding of the terminal at Blubber
Bay, on Texada Island, was undertaken and complete reconstruction was carried out
to the marine works at Little River terminal and at Westview terminal, where a
compound for vehicle assembly was also constructed with waiting-room and tourist
facilities. Modifications to Campbell River and Crofton ferry terminals were carried out and an assembly area constructed at Campbell River. In the Interior the
cradle and winch for the marine railway at Shelter Bay were installed and a contract
was let for illumination and heating of the ramps at Galena Bay and Shelter Bay.

1969/70 was a quieter year in some respects. In all, 35 projects, with a combined length of 201 miles, were sent in by Victoria and the four regions for processing on the design programmes. Some use was also made of the pavement elevation
and traverse programmes.
A number of inquiries were made during the year by other provinces and
states about the possibility of borrowing certain of our earthwork programmes, as
they contain some features not generally available on standard programme packages.
Considerable work was done in writing programmes for the Construction
Branch and helping them set up their own computer section.

 C 32 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1969/70
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS
Normal progress was made on practically all grading contract projects. The
total mileage constructed amounted to 98.69.
Construction was completed on the Arrow Lakes section of the Vernon-Slocan
Highway and the Shelter Bay to Revelstoke section of the Big Bend Highway. The
Britannia Beach to Squamish section of the Garibaldi Highway also was completed.
On the Trans-Canada Highway a total of 8.28 miles was reconstructed and,
of this, 5.79 were on the Sorrento to Salmon Arm section. Another major project
on this highway is a 4-lane section 4.73 miles in length from Merritt Junction to
Valleyview.   This year 1.51 miles were constructed.
A considerable amount of work was accomplished on the Southern Trans-
Canada Highway. Mileage completed amounted to 1.62 between Murphy Creek
and Trail, 6.33 between Goat River and Kid Creek east of Creston, and 2.26 on the
Wardner Bridge approaches.
Excellent progress was made on the Syringa to Arrow Dam section of the Rob-
son-Broadwater Road, with over 5 miles being completed.
On the Cariboo Highway contracts were awarded late in the year on sections
from Williams Lake to Mountain House Road and from Dog Prairie to Australian,
a total distance of 26.25 miles. Advantage was taken of a mild winter and 7.23
miles were completed.
Most of the work on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was located
between Galloway Rapids and McNeill River. A total of 7.60 miles of this 12.37-
mile section is completed. Other projects in progress on this highway are the
Exchamsiks River Bridge approaches, Clyde Creek revision, Mcintosh Creek revision, and Lamming to McBride section.
Prolonged wet weather hindered work on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway. Only
9.81 miles were constructed on the two projects in progress.
Construction continued on an extremely difficult 4.3-mile section of the Lougheed Highway from Ruby Creek to Haig. Most of the work is excavation in rock
bluffs adjacent to a railway, and 1.94 miles have been completed.
Reconstruction of the Patricia Bay Highway between Victoria and Swartz Bay
to four lanes is in progress, and 1.95 miles of two contract projects, totalling 9.45
miles in length, are completed.
Mileage constructed on other major projects was 8.50 on the Cowichan Lake
Highway, 4.49 on the Queen Charlotte City-Skidegate Mission Highway on the
Queen Charlotte Islands, 2.60 on the Port Edward Highway, and 1.39 on the Nelson-
Nelway Highway.

 C 40 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1969/70
REPORT OF THE SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
GENERAL
Authorizations issued in 1969/70 totalled $18,987,000, which exceeded the
previous years' allocation by $3,103,700, and expenditures amounting to $18,570,-
466.30 were $5,712,139.30 above 1968. District's debit notes for day-labour
amounted to $2,343,139.95, or 7.9 per cent of the total expenditures.
Actual mileage paved with asphalt also was up to a total of 344 miles of two-
lane highway. In addition, Paving Branch crews roadmixed approximately 81.1
miles of road and surface treated 111.2 miles. The principal reasons for the increased performance was the large number of continuing projects from the previous
year, and the large number of contracts awarded throughout the paving season.
While paving volume established a record this fiscal year, performance was
curtailed by strikes. The teamsters and labourers strike against member companies
of the B.C. Road Builders Association started late in February and continued for
nine weeks. Crushing and gravelling operations were severely delayed which
caused a subsequent delay in the start of paving on most projects. Further delays
resulted from the oil, chemical, and atomic workers strike against the coast refineries,
which started on May 23rd, and continued for 22 weeks. Considerable paving time
was lost in remote areas supplied by the coast refineries, and delays were encountered
throughout most of the Province, because of heavy demand on Interior and Alberta
refineries and a general shortage of tanks to haul asphalt.
CONTRACT CRUSHING, BASE CONSTRUCTION,
DRAINAGE, AND PAVING
Seventeen projects were carried over from 1968/69, 16 of which required
significant contract field work to complete.
Twenty-two contracts were called and 21 awarded this year. One project was
for paving the approaches to the British Columbia Hydro Arrow Dam at Casdegar
and another was for paving in a Provincial park for the Department of Recreation
and Conservation. The paving of service areas and parking lots for various Provincial departments and agencies was included in other paving contracts.
Eighteen projects were substantially completed during the year. Twenty
projects involving substantial field work and expenditure will be continued into the
next fiscal year.
An increase of Portland cement-mixed base was recorded this year. This
strengthening was carried out on Project 1815, Fort Nelson curb and gutter; Project
1986, Vernon curb and gutter, and Project S-8867, Golden.
Unusual working conditions were experienced in Fort Nelson and special
measures had to be taken to control and reduce weather damage to newly built sections.   These are shown in accompanying photographs.
Asphalt deliveries to Projects S-0768, Beaver Cove to Port Hardy, and S-0569,
Saltspring Island sections, were made by rail cars mounted on barges which involved
special scheduling and unloading problems to minimize tug delays, demurrage on
barges and cars, and to facilitate the use of wharves and docks by other regular users.
All deliveries for Project S-0768 were made by 21 car barges to Beaver Cove
where Canadian Forest Products assisted the Department by providing boom tugs
when it was necessary to move barges from the dock.
Eighteen car barges for Project S-0569 were unloaded onto the Government
wharf at Ganges.
Accompanying photographs show barge unloading arrangements.

 REPORT OF SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
C 43
Tank cars lined up for pumping asphalt into distributor trucks.
PULVIMIX AND SURFACE TREATMENT
Three day-labour crews under the over-all control and direction of a senior
technician were again employed this year. Mixing grade RC1 was used for work
with the Pettibone Wood Mixer and the results appear to be effective.
Notwithstanding adverse weather conditions throughout much of the Province
during the latter half of the paving season, a total of 192.3 miles were surface-
treated or roadmixed by Paving Branch crews. It was unfortunate that adverse
weather prevented completion of programmed roadmixing and dust-laying between
McBride and Tete Jaune lunction, as this is the only remaining section of Highway
16 east of Prince George which does not have some kind of asphalt-stabilized
surface.
TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT
Work continued on trial use of the California travelling profilograph purchased
the previous year to develop a satisfactory method of use, and to collect reliable
test data on which to base acceptable future contract limits on pavement roughness.
Sufficient data appears to have been collected to justify inclusion of numerical limits
in asphalt-paving specifications.
A literature review was carried out to assess what regulations and specifications
could be written and reasonably administered to reduce air pollution from asphalt-
paving plants. In later new contracts, special provisions included clauses requiring
additional dust-collector systems to reduce air pollution in the vicinity of asphalt-
paving plants, and proposals were prepared for revision of plant and equipment
requirements on asphalt-paving specifications.
A start was made on the collecting of data for system analysis of Paving Branch
operations, with a view to facilitating programming of future paving.
SAFETY
During the course of the year, the Branch qualified for the British Columbia
Safety Council's silver-on-gold award for operating a total of 736,313 consecutive
 C 44 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1969/70
man-hours without a lost-time accident.    Regrettably, this record was lost in
August, 1969, when an employee suffered an accident and was off work for five days.
DEPARTMENTAL MEETINGS AND CONFERENCES
A conference of Regional Paving Engineers/Superintendents and Senior Project Supervisors was held from November 24 to November 27, 1969, to discuss
contract administration and technical problems. Proposals for revisions to asphalt
and paving specifications were also discussed.
A meeting with asphalt suppliers to British Columbia was held on January 27,
1970. The meetings were attended by senior officials of all the oil companies which
supply asphalt to British Columbia, as well as by the Chairman and head buyer of
the Purchasing Commission, the Chief Highway Engineer, Chief Planning Engineer,
and Senior Materials Engineer, in addition to the Senior Paving Engineer and regional paving officials.
A conference was held in Vancouver with the Asphalt Paving Sub-committee
of the B.C. Road Builders Association, to discuss proposed revision to specifications
with a view to improve quality, control, and administration of paving contracts.
The Senior Paving Engineer also attended several other meetings of the Joint Committee on Highways to discuss administrative and technical problems in connection
with contract administration of highways in British Columbia.
PERSONNEL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
As usual, annual proficiency examinations were held in March, 1970, following an intensified series of short training courses held at regional centres.
By arrangement with the Departmental Training Officer, a paving branch
survey course held in Kamloops was heavily attended by personnel from other
Branches, mainly Maintenance Branch, to the general benefit of the Department.
It is hoped to expand the programme of inter-departmental-training courses in
future years.
One Paving Branch project supervisor passed the British Columbia Association
of Professional Engineers examinations and has gained registration as a professional
engineer.   One professional engineer accepted employment with the Branch.
Regional paving officials and project supervisors attended a two-day lecture
sponsored by Pacific Terex, in Vancouver, during December, 1969. This was the
first time that many supervisors received detailed information on aggregate dredging,
washing, and hydro-classifying which it is hoped will be beneficial for future
operations.
An additional benefit to this session was the opportunity to meet other Departmental personnel. Problems of common interest were discussed and better appreciation gained on each other's point of view.
RECRUITMENT, RESIGNATIONS, AND TRANSFERS
Mr. P. Barnes, P.Eng., the Regional Paving Engineer at Nelson, was successful
in a competition for appointment as Regional Materials Engineer at Nelson.
After fourteen years service in the Paving Branch, Mr. J. W. G. Kerr, P.Eng.,
relinquished the appointment of Senior Paving Engineer on March 31, 1970, to
assume the appointment of Senior Materials Engineer.

 C 52 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1969/70
REPORT OF THE RRIDGE CONSTRUCTION ENGINEER
Thirty-eight new bridges were completed in the 1969/70 fiscal year, and as
of March 31, 1970, 33 additional structures were under construction. Particulars
of these structures are given in the appended tabulations.
During the year 12 bridges on the North Thompson Highway were opened
to traffic leaving only three detours on the newly reconstructed portion of this highway. Of these structures, four are crossings of the North Thompson River, and
two are overhead crossings of the Canadian National Railways, the two major
obstacles to highway construction on this route
The Northern Trans-Provincial Highway has had bridge construction in progress at various points throughout its length. Near its western terminus, 35 miles
from Prince Rupert, the substructure for a new crossing of the Khyex River has
been completed. Four smaller structures were completed near Terrace and major
crossings of the Kitseguecla River and the Bulkley River near Smithers were opened
to traffic in the fall of 1969. Bridges across the Willow and Bowron Rivers east of
Prince George incorporate corrosion resistant, unpainted steelwork. Farther east,
11 bridges remain under construction; of these, two are crossings of the upper
Fraser River and the most easterly, Rockingham Creek Bridge, is only three miles
from the Alberta boundary and Yellowhead Pass.
Four new bridges, a temporary bridge, and new ferries with associated landings
at Needles and Arrowhead were essential links completed on the Revelstoke-
Nakusp Highway overlooking the Arrow Lakes Reservoir. Of these new bridges
the most picturesque is over Mulvehill Creek, a continuous steel girder bridge, supported on inclined steel bents, and spanning a rocky gorge.
The widening of the George S. Pearson Bridge at Nanaimo was completed in
October and this improvement has eliminated the traffic congestion at the north
side of the city.
Work is continuing on the two major crossings of the Fraser River. The bridge
at Mission will be 3,695 feet long; the Knight Street Bridge, incorporates three
structures, totalling some 4,800 feet.

 REPORT OF SENIOR TRAFFIC ENGINEER C 81
REPORT OF THE 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. Activity
continued to grow and again exceeded that of the previous year owing to the
increasing number of mo tor-vehicles using British Columbia highways.
The Senior Traffic Engineer represented the Department on the British Columbia Safety Council, the St. John Ambulance Highway First Aid Post Committee,
the Canadian Good Roads Association Council on Uniform Traffic Control Devices
for Canada and the Canadian Good Roads Association Committee on Traffic
Operations.
Short duration traffic counts were again taken with automatic equipment at
approximately 800 locations throughout the Province where traffic is counted
annually. Traffic volumes are now being recorded continuously at 21 different
locations. At six of these locations the two directions of traffic movement are
recorded separately. A considerable number of counts were taken for special
purposes, such as railway-crossing studies, intersection studies, roadside interview
and licence-plate origin-destination surveys.
Punch tape traffic counters are gradually being acquired so that calculation of
traffic count information can be done with data-processing equipment. A translator was acquired for converting information on punched tapes to computer cards.
The change-over to this new equipment caused some delays in correlation of
information.
Summer daily traffic volumes for 1969 are currently running about 38,000
vehicles on the Port Mann Bridge, 50,000 vehicles on the Pattullo Bridge, 51,000
vehicles on the First Narrows Bridge, 65,000 vehicles on the Oak Street Bridge,
37,000 vehicles in the George Massey Tunnel, and 13,000 vehicles on the Okanagan
Lake Bridge. Data from the permanent count stations showed that traffic for 1969
increased over 1968 totals by approximately 4 per cent in the Northern Interior,
lOVi per cent in the Southern Interior, and 10 per cent in the Fraser Valley and
9Vi per cent on Vancouver Island.
Assistance was given to the Planning Branch in carrying out both licence-
plate and roadside interview origin-destination surveys in the Fraser Valley, in the
Port Coquitlam, and Coquitlam areas.
Numerous intersection problems were investigated during the year. Many
manual vehicle turning-movement counts were taken and designs prepared for
improvements at approximately 50 intersections. Improvements such as widening,
channelization, signing, lighting, and signal revisions were carried out at many of
these intersections to give greater capacity, to reduce hazards and delay, and to
facilitate the flow of traffic. Design work was done on turning requirements for
large truck units and on use of compound curves at main intersections.
Numerous highway design plans were reviewed to ensure that intersections
and interchanges would function with as few operational and capacity problems as
possible.
Traffic signals were designed and installed at 12 intersections throughout the
Province. Approximately 500 street-lighting luminaires were installed at highway
intersections and interchanges.    A large amount of electrical design work was
 C 82 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1969/70
carried out in connection with construction of new ferry terminals and reconstruction of existing ones. Three electrical technicians were fully occupied with equipment preparation and maintenance in the Victoria electrical shop and with installation and maintenance of traffic information and control electrical installations
widely spread throughout the Province. Ten railway grade-crossings were signalized in co-operation with the Federal Railway Transport Committee and the railways. The Department paid for signals at six level-crossings on the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway. The British Columbia Hydro Authority Railway installed signals
at all six locations where their Roberts Bank line crossed Provincial highways.
Changing conditions necessitated the review of many speed limits. The
opinion of the police forces responsible was obtained in many cases and, where
necessary, the actual travel speeds were checked by means of a radar speed meter.
Reports of fatal accidents which occurred in the period November 1, 1968,
to October 31, 1969, were reviewed in detail and significant characteristics tabulated.
Portions of the numbered-highway system and major unnumbered highways,
which have been altered in any way in the past few years, were checked with a ball
bank indicator and advisory speed signing revised as necessary to ensure uniformity
of application of this type of signing.
J. H. Harding,
Senior Traffic Engineer.
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
C 83
REPORT OF THE CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
A Planning Section was formed in October, 1969, to assist in the determination
and control of the highway programme in a more comprehensive manner. Mr. M.
G. Elston transferred from North Vancouver where he was the Regional Highway
Engineer to direct the activities of the small staff as Senior Planning Engineer.
During the calendar year 1969 a total of 6,494 tentative and final subdivision
applications were handled, 1,721 of which were adjacent to controlled-access highways. There were 1,021 permits issued for entrances on controlled-access highways,
2,588 for entrances on non-controlled-access highways, and 3,672 for other works
on Crown lands. Again there was an increase over the previous year in the number
of subdivisions handled and the number of permits issued, it being 3 per cent for
the former and 33 per cent for the latter.
Soil surveys were conducted on 400 miles of new locations of highways.
Foundation investigations were made at 22 bridge sites and 13 investigations were
made of landslides and foundation failures in fills.
PLANNING BRANCH
M. G. Elston, Senior Planning Engineer
The Branch was established in October, 1969, with a small staff. The objectives
of the Branch are to assess transportation needs, determine optimum solutions, and
schedule design and construction activities using engineering systems concepts.
Work is well under way on a fundamental revision of the highway inventory.
This system is designed and programmed and data collection about half complete.
A scheduling system, municipal based information system, and a pavement-management system have been commenced. They are still in the fundamental early stages.
Several traffic and transportation study reports by other agencies were reviewed
and analysed to provide aid to decision making by the Executive. A short range
study of the Port Coquitlam-Port Moody-Coquitlam area was instigated and presently is 50 per cent complete. Programmes and approaches devised for this study
will be of great use in subsequent work.
The Branch representatives serve on the Regional District Committees and
provide special assistance with reference to transportation problems.
Routine processing of subdivisions, driveway permits, rezoning applications,
zoning by-laws, etc., was undertaken and work was done toward a revised subdivision
processing procedure intended to ease the path of the first-time subdivider and keep
processing time to a minimum.
MATERIALS TESTING BRANCH
E. E. Readshaw, Senior Materials Engineer
The Materials Testing Branch functions mainly in the capacity of an advisory
engineering group to the various design and construction sections in the Department.
The work involves foundation investigations for roads and structures, slope stability
problems in rock and soils, investigation of gravel resources, pavement thickness
design and evaluations, spring-load restriction determinations, concrete bridge-deck
restoration, materials testing and inspection, and specialized research.
 C 84 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1969/70
Bridge Foundations
Twenty-two bridge sites have been investigated so far this year. The most interesting were the two overpasses for the Roberts Bank railway at Highways 99 and 15.
These sites consist of deep layers of very soft clay which are unable to support an
embankment of more than 20 feet without special foundation treatment. One solution is use of vertical sand drains which allow the excess water in the clay to be
squeezed out under the weight of the fill. As this occurs the strength of the clay
increases. This technique has been used before in British Columbia but it has been
found that, to be successful, the method of installing the sand drains has to be such
as to prevent any disturbance of the clay during their installation.
Another technique for stabilizing these soils consists of applying an electric
current to a series of steel rods and pipes driven into the ground. The current causes
water in the soil to flow from positively charged rods to negatively charged pipes.
As the excess water is removed from the pipes, the soil is in effect dried and strengthened. This was done successfully in Norway under similar conditions to those at
the Roberts Bank bridge-sites but a test section near these sites indicated that the
procedure here would be too costly to constitute a practical solution.
Landslides
Thirteen new problems involving either landslides in the natural ground or
foundation failures in fills have been worked on this year. In addition some 16 previous problems are under observation. One of the most unusual occurred on the
new construction near Grindrod where, during the construction of a fill over a marsh
containing white marl, the original ground failed suddenly. The sliding material
travelled at high speed some 1,500 feet down the flat slope. No one was injured
and there was little property damage. The cause of the slide was the generation of
high-pore water pressures in the marl set up by the weight of the fill material which
in effect caused the fill to " float" on a very thin layer of liquid mud. Remedial
measures consisted of drilling a series of relief wells at the toe of the fill and continuing construction at a slow rate to allow the water to drain away from under the
fill. The 30-foot fill was completed in three months without further incident and
now is stable.
Rock Slope Instabilities
Problems of rock slope instability have arisen in many areas where the effects
of weathering over a period of 10 or more years have loosened the rock faces. On
the Garibaldi Highway a series of rock-falls prompted a geological study of the
over-all stability of the cuts.
The study showed that a combination of scaling, shotcreting, bolting, and
blasting down weak sections would have to be undertaken, and this work has been
proceeding during the fall.
An unstable area of rock slope on the Trans-Canada Highway near Alexandria
in the Fraser Canyon was treated by shotcreting. Approximately 12,000 square
feet of rock face consisting of loose blocks of granodiorite was covered with an
average of 3 inches of pressure-sprayed concrete. Similar surface treatment of
rock faces in the past has completely prevented weathering and rock-falls over
periods of up to 8 years.
Rockbolting of unstable rock slopes at Porteau on the Garibaldi Highway has
also been carried out. This face of massive granodiorite lies on bedding planes
dipping from 30° to 60° toward the road and during wet weather the slight increase
in lubrication caused by the seeping drainage water is often enough to cause large
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER C 85
blocks to fall. The installation of drainage holes has often tapped large flows of
water from the interior of this rock mass with noticeable drying effects at the outer
face.
At other unstable areas movement gauges attached to warning signals are
being used to safeguard the public.
Soil Surveys
Exploration work has continued on 400 miles of new locations. Drilling with
various types of equipment, test-pits with bulldozers and backhoes, and the use of
seismic methods are all used to explore and identify the various types of soil likely to
be encountered during construction. The purpose is to recognize problems such as
slides, seepage areas, etc., and remedy these problems rather than to expend large
amounts of money in future road upkeep.
The recording of the drill, testing, and computational results, plus pavement
thickness onto a standardized profile has been standardized and now is an extremely
valuable aid to contract drawing. The regional auger-drill crews and diamond-drill
crews are a valuable asset in this work because of their specialized knowledge and
capability in dealing with difficult situations.
Gravel Exploration
The search for gravel for use in road bases and for concrete has continued, all
four Regional laboratories devoting a large part of their time to this activity. To
date some 100 gravel pits have been investigated. In the Prince Rupert area, gravel
is extremely scarce and much effort has been expended to locate a source in the
Khyex River Valley. No access, except the river, was available so the drills and
bulldozers had to be taken in by barge at high tide. A related problem is the prediction of gravel quality before opening up a pit. Since the use dictates the required
quality, a variety of detailed test procedures are necessary on a statistical sample
from all proposed pits. Also, work is progressing in assessing the suitability of
crushed rock for road building in areas where solid-rock excavation to grade-line is
necessary.
Research
In addition to the electro-osmosis test described previously, efforts are being
continued to discover the causes of cracking of asphalt pavement in cold weather.
Certain types of asphalt at low temperatures are too stiff to relieve the stresses caused
by contraction and therefore they break, forming a crack. The laboratory investigation is measuring the characteristics of asphaltic-concrete beams sawn from roads
both where cracking has and has not occurred. This will eventually enable specifications to be written so that the correct type of asphalt is used to avoid cold-
temperature cracking.
Field development is continuing, of equipment, to predict areas of rock instability by measuring the internal noise caused by rock movement. Detailed work into
cause and effect of road roughness is continuing with the development of a mechanical road-roughness rater to complement the present human-panel method. Work has
started into the details of road ice prevention in avalanche sheds by use of electrical
heating cables embedded in the road surface. The lessening of skidding accidents
by proper surface-texturing on high-speed roads is another problem with which this
Branch has become involved. Complementing this work is the need to formulate
suitable surfacings for steel foot-bridge decks and metal bridges.
 C 86 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1969/70
Concrete
The programme of repairing deteriorated concrete bridge-deck surfaces by
adding a thin concrete overlay has continued this year. Mosquito Creek Bridge,
Capilano Creek Bridge, and Lynn Creek Bridge on the Trans-Canada Highway
were all resurfaced this summer. The East and West Pine Bridges on the John
Hart-Peace River Highway were also resurfaced and, as these are only 20 feet wide,
traffic had to be rerouted part of the time. A total of 41 bridges, comprising 600,000
square feet of deck, have been resurfaced since 1964. There are 350 concrete-deck
bridges in the Province. The continuing programme of coring concrete resurfaced
bridge-decks for effectiveness of bonding was completed on 13 bridges on Vancouver
Island and five on the Lower Mainland. In the general area of acceptance testing
there have been the following developments:—
(a) Development of a 2-day rapidly cured strength test to replace the 28-day
strength test.
(b) The concrete section of the General Highways Specification has been
updated and many redundant sections have been eliminated, particularly
in the prestressed concrete section.
(c) Completely new specifications have been written for " No Post " guardrails.
(d) Normal acceptance testing for aggregates, cements, mixes, and strength
has continued as in past years.
The Lions Gate Bridge main deck was resurfaced with coal-tar epoxy resin and
quartz sand last summer. Previous experiences and mechanized application of the
material reduced the working-time to nine days this year compared with about four
weeks on previous occasions. The main problems were with weather and traffic.
The epoxy requires bridge-deck temperatures of 70° F. to cure properly in one
working-shift. July was chosen as having the highest probability of days exceeding
70° F. Cleaning the deck of dirt and oil is critical in obtaining a proper bond to
the deck. This operation of washing with detergents at high pressure and sandblasting constitutes a further limit to the speed of the job even though work continues through the night. The epoxy itself can only be applied during the day because
of cure-temperature requirement.
Pavement Evaluation
This work involves the assessment of existing surfaced roads, the gravel thickness and quality for new roads to be built, and continuous evaluation of the reasons
why roads last a long time. The drilling of some 150 spring load-restriction sections
is nearly completed so that an as-constructed statistical sample of past pavement
thickness can be used to determine the reasons for longevity of asphaltic roads. The
pavement evaluation projects in the four highway regions were as follows: 16
projects involving 75 miles in Region 1; six projects involving 49 miles in Region 2;
14 projects in Region 3 involving 49 miles; and 11 projects involving 140 miles in
Region 4. Additionally, up to eight Benkelman beam crews were involved at one
time last spring and this year in minimizing the length and time of road load
restriction throughout the entire Province. The majority of the paved highways in
British Columbia were evaluated for the amount of temperature cracking present
to determine the extent and the worst areas of cracking. The road-roughness rating
was again performed last fall as a check on present road quality. These data were
added to the report on road roughness in British Columbia for the last five years.
The use of the computer facilities for pavement evaluation has proven invaluable
for rapid-information processing, data storage, and preparation of reports.

Personnel
C 87
As always the calibre of work is directly related to the amount and quality of
both theoretical and practical training of the staff. Five Engineers-in-Training have
been given intensive training in the various facets of material testing work. An
unusual number of this Branch's staff has been transferred, promoted, or has
resigned this past year, causing problems in meeting deadlines. The junior staff are
being given on-job training while the senior staff have attended night courses,
seminars, conventions, and special lectures.

 REPORT OF GENERAL MANAGER OF FERRIES C 89
REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER, RRITISH
COLUMBIA FERRIES DIVISION
The past year has seen an over-all growth in the movement of passengers and
vehicles. Routes which continue to show unprecedented rates of increase were Vancouver Island to Gulf Islands, Mainland to Gulf Islands, Howe Sound, and Departure
Bay to Horseshoe Bay.
Steps were taken to deal with the additional traffic by the very successful jum-
boizing of the M.V. Queen of Esquimalt. Because of the success of the lengthening,
the M.V. Queen of Victoria is now being lengthened. The necessary alterations to
berthing facilities and vehicle-passenger accommodation, both at Swartz Bay and
Tsawwassen terminals is presently under way and will be completed prior to the 1970
tourist season.
The increased traffic on the Mainland to Gulf Islands gave the newly remodelled
M.V. Sechelt Queen and the M.V. Queen of Sidney, operating as a supplementary
ship both on the Gulf Islands to Mainland and Vancouver Island service, many
capacity loads. It is planned to extend the operating schedule of the M.V. Queen
of Sidney for the coming season.
Additional service on the Jervis Inlet crossing was also provided by the M.V.
Pender Queen. The M.V. Queen of the Islands was operated through the summer
months on the Comox to Westview crossing by the Department of Highways.
Two ferries were purchased by this Division from Coast Ferries Ltd., and
commenced Government service June 15, 1969, on routes established by the owners,
namely—Kelsey Bay to Beaver Cove, Alert Bay and Sointula, and also between
Brentwood Bay and Mill Bay.
A reduction in rates instituted by the Government on the Kelsey Bay route
brought about a greatly increased movement of traffic in this area. The privilege
of Gulf Islands commuter tickets brought about savings on the Brentwood Bay to
Mill Bay service.
A new water taxi, M.V. Dogwood Princess, was put into service to replace the
Sea Wolf V which serves passengers between Langdale, Keats, and Gambier Islands.
With the additional purchase, the Ferries Division now operates 23 ferries on
12 different routes having some 25 different ports of call. This gives a total trip-
carrying capacity of 13,235 passengers and 2,060 vehicles.
M.V. QUEEN OF ESQUIMALT
The M.V. Queen of Esquimalt is the first king-sized ship in the British Columbia Ferries fleet.
The snub-nosed blue and white craft, a familiar sight with her sister vessels
as they ply Gulf of Georgia waters between Vancouver Island and the Mainland, has
been lengthened to almost double her original car capacity and provides dining
and lounge facilities that makes her one of the most comfortable car ferries afloat.
The " stretching " of the M.V. Queen of Esquimalt took place at Burrard
Drydock in North Vancouver.
The vessel's length has been increased by 84 ft. to 426 ft. by cutting her in
half and adding a section midships.
Auto-carrying capacity has been increased to 192 full-sized cars compared
with the 110 cars that she originally carried.
 C 90 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1969/70
A deluxe restaurant, seating 48 persons, has been added, while a new self-
service cafeteria seats 190 persons compared with 144 in the former restaurant.
Floors are carpeted and the decor is excitingly contemporary with panelled
walls, soft lights and subdued colour tones.
The vessel now provides the utmost in comfort for our passengers and at the
same time maintains the efficiency of operation which has given British Columbia
Ferries the reputation of being one of the world's best transportation services.
The enlarging of the M.V. Queen of Esquimalt has been a delicate operation
performed with surgical skill by craftsmen at Burrard Drydock.
The ferry was literally sliced in two with oxy-acetylene torches and then welded
together again after the midship section was put into place.
Ships have been enlarged this way in other parts of the world, but this was
something new for British Columbia Ferries.
The contract for the $2.2 million job was awarded January 23, 1969, and
Burrard Drydock immediately set to work prefabricating the middle section in one
of the huge drydocks at the shipyard.
The section was over five stories high, including engine-room space, two car
decks, promenade, and sun decks.
The M.V. Queen of Esquimalt arrived at the shipyard February 27th to begin
preparations for her " operation."
The existing galley and restaurant were stripped, and hundreds of pipes and
electrical wires had to be cut and sealed off. The actual cutting operation also got
under way as welders with torches sliced through the superstructure down as far as
the hull.
On April 11th the drydock was emptied and two welders began the extremely
delicate job of slicing through the 7/x6-m. plating of the ship's hull.
The cut was made just forward of a watertight bulkhead to ensure that the
stern section of the ship would float. Once the cut was finished, late on April 11th,
the drydock was flooded.
Some of the compartments of the forward section of the ferry were also flooded
to ensure that it would not float, but stay in place in preparation for the joining-up
of the centre section.
As the drydock filled up, the stern section of the ship floated free and was
towed off. The centre section was floated into place and the dock drained and the
welding operation begun. The stern section of the vessel was then floated back into
place April 19th and welded to the new stretch hull.
The stretching of the ferry does not mean that the vessel's speed will be affected.
A British firm produced a scale model of the lengthened ferry and tested it in a
specially constructed tank.
These tests showed that up to 18.5 knots, which is the maximum speed of this
vessel, there was no significant increase in horsepower requirements.
The new section adds to the buoyancy of the hull and also improves the length-
width ratio, giving the hull greater efficiency in the water.

 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES C 93
REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
Forty-one ferry routes were operated under the jurisdiction of the Department
of Highways during the 1969/70 fiscal year. This figure includes six subsidized
operations.
TRAFFIC
Traffic was slightly down from the previous year; 1,645,983 vehicles and
4,300,633 passengers having been carried. The drop in traffic is attributed to the
reductions at the Castlegar and Needles ferries.
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 ALTERATION
Courtenay District.—A new ferry was constructed and is now operating on the
Campbell River to Quadra Island route. This vessel replaced the earlier Quadra
Queen which has been updated and placed on a new route between Quadra Island
and Cortes Island. The vessel, Queen of the Islands, was operated between Comox
and Powell River in conjunction with the Comox Queen for three months of the
summer season.
McKenzie District.—A new ferry was constructed and replaced the former
subsidized vessel on the route between Powell River and Texada Island.
New Denver District.—A new ferry was placed on the Needles to Fauquier
crossing on the Lower Arrow Lake, replacing the original cable ferry.
Prince George District.—The Hansard ferry service was discontinued.
Revelstoke District.—A new ferry was placed in operation between Shelter
Bay and Galena Bay. This route eliminated the need for the 12 Mile, 24 Mile, and
Upper Arrow Lake ferries.
Subsidized Ferries.—The Mill Bay ferry was taken over by the British Columbia Ferry Division. The Texada Island ferry was replaced by a new vessel. A
new service was commenced across Skidegate Channel in the Queen Charlotte
Islands.

 REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
C 95
REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
All areas of the Province experienced unusually mild weather during the
1969/70 winter. For this reason demands on winter maintenance requirements
were considerably reduced, reflecting in smaller expenditures on snow removal,
sanding, and salting. However the usual high standard of maintenance was upheld
throughout the season on all main roads.
Due to the lighter snowfalls recorded, and also to a protracted spring run-off
period, the number of minor wash-outs and slides declined somewhat over previous
years. A wash-out of major proportions did occur when Strachan Creek Bridge
near Squamish was swept away during a September flood.
FERRIES
During the year two new 28-car free ferries, the M.V. Galena and the M.V.
Needles, were put into operation, replacing the old cable ferry at Needles and the
M.V. Lardeau. A unique feature of both these ferries is the Voith-Schneider
propulsion system which allows free movement in any desired direction, thereby
eliminating most wind problems while docking.
DAY LABOUR
Improvement of secondary roads continued under the day-labour programme,
with a total expenditure of $19,255,506.
ROADSIDE DEVELOPMENT
During the year all phases of roadside development continued in a satisfactory
manner. Two seeding contracts were completed for a cost of $118,170. One
covered 1,511 acres on Highway 23, north of Revelstoke, and the remaining 541
acres completed a contract commenced last year on Highway 16, east of Prince
George. Departmental hydro-seeding crews seeded 1,187 acres and refertilized
2,205 acres in Regions 1, 2, and 3, for a cost of $244,484.
The roadside rest area programme continued, with many new sites chosen and
additional roadside table sites developed. The production of the concrete picnic
tables at Vernon was continued, as was the manufacture of fibreglass toilet stools and
fibreglass litter-barrel tops. The combined cost of this project amounted to $28,770.
A successful weed- and brush-spraying programme was continued and a start
was made in training crews in preparation for the licensing of applicators by the
Department of Agriculture.
TRAINING PROGRAMMES
The foreman-training programme inaugurated in December, 1968, has continued, with a total of 150 of our road-foremen attending. Nearly 100 per cent
of our equipment operators completed the Defensive-driving Course instructed by
specially trained Departmental personnel. A number of engineering technicians,
engineering aides, and operators attended short courses in weed and brush control,
surveying, asphalts, and management.

REGIONAL REPORTS
REGION 1
(D. D. Godfrey, Regional Highway Engineer, North Vancouver)
Saanich, Nanaimo, Courtenay, North Vancouver, New Westminster, and
Chilliwack Highway Districts
Saanich District
Roads
Maintenance.—A regular garbage pick-up and litter patrol was carried out on
trunk highways for roadside beautification and control of environmental pollution.
This was made necessary by the increased traffic volume and the greater use of roadside rest areas.
Heavy urban development in the Langford-Colwood area created constant
problems with respect to drainage, access, and services. A brushing programme
was carried out on the Trans-Canada Highway. The number of subdivisions increased greatly during the year and required proportionately more man-hours to
process them.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A major programme of roadmix surfacing was carried
out in the Langford-Metchosin area. Emphasis was placed on the connector roads
but some of the more local streets were paved also.
Reconstruction.—Several major day-labour projects were completed during
the year.
The 4.5-mile portion of the Patricia Bay Highway from Beaver Lake to Island
View Road was widened to three lanes to facilitate increasing traffic volumes from
the Swartz Bay Ferry and a 1.3-mile portion of the same highway was widened to
four lanes to handle heavy urban traffic volumes between the Trans-Canada Highway
and Rogers Avenue.
A programme of ditching, widening, and elimination of old wooden box culverts
was carried out on the first 11 miles of the West Coast Road past Jordan River in
preparation for paving.
About 3 miles of the Sooke Road was widened and ditched. The work included a large amount of rock drilling and blasting, most of the roadway cuts being
in solid rock.
The reconstruction of the Shawnigan Lake Road along the east side of Shawnigan Lake was partially completed. Very little work had been done on this portion
of the road since it was part of the original Victoria-Nanaimo Highway.
Snow Removal.—A mild winter with far less than average rainfall and snowfall
was enjoyed by all our crews.
Bridges
No bridges were constructed or reconstructed during the year. A Bailey bridge
was placed on the Black Creek Bridge deck so that this bridge could remain in
service until it is replaced with a culvert.
The old Howe truss bridge over the Sooke River was demolished.
The Harris Cove Bridge at Port Renfrew was shortened several hundred feet
by the construction of a causeway.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 97
Buildings
Salt sheds were constructed at the Sooke, Cobble Hill, and Sidney maintenance
yards.   An equipment shed is presently under construction at the Sooke yard.
Nanaimo District
Roads
A major paving programme was carried out on each of the Gulf Islands and
paving works completed in each of the Improvement and Water Districts on Vancouver Island. During these improvements, we endeavoured to provide width for
yellow edge-line walkways where the construction was in heavily built-up areas.
The complete right-of-way of the Trans-Canada Highway south of Duncan
for a distance of 5 miles was reshaped, the shoulders being widened, gravelled, and
the banks seeded to grass. A similar programme was undertaken on the northern
approaches to the City of Nanaimo on the Island Highway.

special attention was given to trunk and main highways. On the Trans-Canada
Highway extensive repairs were made to damaged and deteriorated guard-rails.
1.5 miles of the Trans-Canada Highway at Monte Creek were widened and strengthened in preparation for the paving contract.
Construction.—A truck lane of 1.4 miles was constructed on Kamloops-
Vernon Highway 97, in connection with an alignment and grade revision for the
highway.
Reconstruction was completed on 8 miles of Shuswap Road from Mile 4 to
Mile 12 and on 3 miles of Lac Le Jeune Road. On the Clearwater Valley Road 0.5
mile was reconstructed in conjunction with the replacement of Canyon 2 Bridge
by a culvert and fill.
On Roche Lake Road 2.6 miles were constructed and gravelling completed.
Widening and gravelling were completed on 8.12 miles of Westsyde Road, 1 mile
on Barnhartvale Road, and 1 mile on Mammette Lake Road. Widening only was
completed on 8 miles of Canyon section of Tranquille-Criss Creek Road and 0.5
mile of a rock section on Dunn Lake Road.
In addition to the above, 15 miles of widening in short sections, mainly to
increase sight distances at dangerous corners, were completed on various other roads.
Snow Removal.—Winter maintenance was normal. Weather conditions were
not severe, but numerous snowfalls and icing conditions required nearly daily
ploughing and sanding. Approximately 35,000 cubic yards of sand were used by
the district. While the spring break-up on the country roads was normal, the
North Thompson Highway suffered more pavement damage than ever, mainly on
sections where the pavement is 10 years or more old.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 103
Bridges
Most bridges were inspected and repairs made to the following: Walhachin
(194), Barriere River (257), Savona (704), Clearwater Station (833), Clearwater

Grouse Creek Bridge (6257), a 27-foot log-stringer span, and Deadman Creek
7 Bridge (6280), a 36-foot log-stringer span, were completely reconstructed.
Ferries
Extensive repairs were carried out on the McLure, Little Fort, and Blackpool
ferries.
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads in the Salmon Arm District. Roadside weeds in various sections were sprayed
with chemicals and fair to good results were obtained. The mowing of grass and
weeds along right-of-way was again carried out. Dust on the side roads in the
built-up areas was brought under control by the use of oil, and dust in the more
isolated spots was controlled by the use of calcium chloride. Our programme of
cleaning ditches along the major highways was continued.
Construction.—Reconstruction, including pit-run gravelling, was completed on
3.1 miles of roads which were broken down as follows: Squilax to Anglemont 1.7
miles, Kamloops to Shuswap 0.6 mile, Sorrento to Eagle Bay 1.5 miles, Tappen
Valley 0.5 mile.
Preparatory work in advance of repaving was completed on 3.42 miles of
Okanagan Highway 97b and major improvements were made to an additional 13.1
miles of side roads.
Snow Removal.—Although it was a milder winter with less snow than usual,
all available equipment was used and with the help of chemicals and two-shift maintenance programme, the main and side roads were kept in good driving condition.
Bridges
Four bridges, Manson (41), MacAulay (47), Wright (114), and Donnelly
(14) were rebuilt throughout. Maintenance work including deck repairs, cleaning,
painting, and flood control was carried out on 18 other bridges.
McBride District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance of the roads in the district was carried
out. The increase in summer tourist traffic on Highways 5 and 16 made it necessary
to devote a larger proportion of our resources to pavement patching, garbage collection, and rest area maintenance.
Day Labour.—Additional crushed gravel was placed on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway between McBride and Tete Jaune Cache to prepare for pulvi-
mixing by Department crews and 21 miles were surfaced in spite of bad weather.
A parking area and highway widening project to accommodate travellers who stop
to view and photograph Mount Robson was partially completed.
 C 104 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1969/70
Snow Removal.—Early winter conditions presented serious icing problems.
Generally the weather was milder than normal with very light snowfalls. Crews
worked shifts, seven days of the week, and much of the time was spent in sanding
and salting the highways. A very large amount of salt was used, but this was very
effective, and highways were kept snow and ice free most of the winter. The under-
body plough proved to be the most useful type of unit on the paved highways.
Crews adapted well to the increased demands made by through traffic. The
acceptance of winter shift schedules, and the initiative and interest shown by winter
shift crews has been very gratifying.
Bridges
King trusses on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between McBride and
Tete Juane Cache were strengthened by scabbing. Many of the older bridges had
major work done on the decks.
Vernon District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads throughout the district. Considerable emphasis on patching was necessary
as a result of severe spring break-up conditions. Highway 6 through the Monashee
Pass suffered extensive pavement damage.
Brushing and chemical brush control were again continued along Highways 97,
97a, and 6, as well as Pleasant Valley Road and Old Kamloops Road.
Subdivision activity in the Vernon area continued at an ever-increasing rate.
Very hot weather in May and June increased demands for dust control in the more
built-up areas.
The no-post guard-rail plant operated by the district again produced 6,800 feet
of guard-rail and 155 bull-nose sections to supply the needs of nine maintenance
districts in Region 2. Initial production of no-post median barrier was undertaken
at the same plant.
Again 200 Department of Highways picnic tables were produced and made
available to ship to various roadside rest-stops throughout the Province.

 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 107
main highway were extensively patched by combined hand-placed, grader-laid and
mechanical paver-laid asphalts. Added to this were 30 miles of resurfacing under
contract, making a total of 166 miles of surface improvement on main highways
in this district this year.
Routine maintenance and minor improvements were continued on all main
highways and side roads.
Oil-base dust layer was applied to 45 miles of gravelled surface rural and
orchard roads to reduce dust damage to vegetable and fruit crops.
Construction and Reconstruction.—A very active year in construction was
realized. This was mainly oriented toward the reconstruction of highways and roads,
both for contract paving work and for the district blade-mix paving programme.
Widening and reconstruction was completed on the 20-mile Princeton to Stirling Creek section of Highway 3. Construction of a 2.7-mile truck lane on Highway
3a was completed.   Both sections were subsequently paved by surfacing contract.
Sub-grade construction on 6.4 miles of truck lane on the Hope-Princeton Highway was completed.
Reconstruction of 1.6 miles of the Apex ski-access road was completed. Included was the elimination of a bridge by the installation of a large diameter culvert.

10 Highway.
Surfacing.—Following reconstruction and gravelling, 12.4 miles of local roads
were blade-mix paved.
The policy of rejuvenation of older local road pavements by sand-sealing was
continued. A total of 15 miles of pavement was surface-treated in this manner,
including 4.3 miles of Naramata Road 250 and 5 miles of Green Mountain Road 78.
Snow Removal.—An unusually late fall substantially reduced snow removal
problems and costs.
Snowfall for the winter was generally below average with the exception being
the Princeton area where snowfall was above normal. Other than the Hope to
Princeton area, snowfall was almost confined to the month of January.
The seven-day-per-week double-shift system provided an effective winter maintenance service in all areas with no major problems encountered.
Bridges
Five bridges were completely reconstructed and two bridges were extensively
repaired.
In addition, three timber bridges were replaced with large diameter corrugated
metal pipe.

the programme of brushing and general right-of-way improvement was continued.
The continued use of simazine is showing good results especially on the Fraser
Canyon section of the Trans-Canada Highway.
Snowfall throughout the district was close to average, but due to temperature
range there was a greater demand on abrasive and chemical. The Fraser Canyon
section remained open all winter with some minor delays due to rockslides only.
Construction.—Reconstruction, relocation, grading, rebuilding of shoulders,
and new alignment were carried out on 24.1 miles of district roads by district forces.
Bridges
Four minor bridges were replaced by culverts, two minor bridges reconstructed,

the Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway.
Snow Removal.—Most of the Lillooet District received lighter-than-usual
snowfall with the exception of the Mission Mountain area. Considerable use of
chemical was used to combat the heavier-than-usual icing conditions.
Bridges
Two new bridges were completed for the Indian Affairs Department near
Lytton, and a new 100-foot span was built for the Village of Cache Creek using
60-foot steel beams. The two suspension bridges received considerable maintenance
throughout the year, these bridges being used by logging-trucks in addition to the
public. Both these bridges are 60 years old and were originally designed for much
lighter traffic. Elsewhere routine maintenance kept the 60 odd bridges in good
shape.

 c 110 highways report, 1969/70
Williams Lake District
Roads
Maintenance.—Regular maintenance was carried out on about, 1,700 miles
and few extraordinary problems were encountered. An astounding increase in
subdivision activity for recreational purposes in the 100 Mile House area kept the
local office busy. If all the subdivisions now being processed in the area are completed to registration, some 50 miles will be added to our maintained road total.
At Likely, a local logging firm commenced rebuilding 15 miles of the Keithley
Creek Road with the Department supplying culverts and some assistance with
gravelling.
Winter conditions were exceptionally easy to cope with as mild weather persisted until Christmas. Snowfall in the Anahim Lake area was only about one-
eighth of average.
A large increase in logging-truck traffic has created difficult problems in maintaining our major side roads.
A new maintenance establishment was completed at 100 Mile House while at
Williams Lake a new establishment is under construction.
Construction.—Regional construction crews completed a further 5.4 miles of
the Canim Lake Road and 4.3 miles of the Horsefly Road. Various sections of
the Chilcotin-Bella Coola Highway, totalling 12.3 miles, were reconstructed. 64.6
miles of other roads were reconstructed or improved.
Paving.—District crews completed 0.9 mile of road-mix pavement on streets
in the 100 Mile area, while at Williams Lake Paving Branch crews supervised 4.3
miles on the Williams Lake-Soda Creek Road. The Williams Lake area continues
to lack a source of clean gravel with enough strength to produce strong pavement.
Bridges
The Whitewater Bridge over Taseko River leading to Nemiah Valley was
rebuilt by the Canadian Army with some material supplied by the Department.
A new bridge was completed by the Forest Service over Cariboo River replacing
the restricted Spanish Bridge and opening the Keithley area to logging-trucks. Our
Department contributed approaches in this joint project.
District crews rebuilt Canim River, Hudgeons, Kleena Kleene 1, Moffat Creek,
Nygaard, and Spanish Creek Bridges. Private bridge detours in the Bella Coola
Valley were still in effect at Nootsatsum and Canoe River.

General maintenance was carried out on all district bridges. Two new bridges
were constructed in the Goose Creek area, and a replacement for Woolgar Bridge
was under construction at year end.
Ferries
Normal operation occurred on all ferries. The West Creston ferry was taken
out of service for the winter months. M.V. Balfour and M.V. Anscomb were each
drydocked for painting and inspection.
Rossland District
Roads
An extremely heavy lower levels run-off, culminated by the Trail Creek flood,
caused extensive damage which took considerable effort and time to repair. As a
result, routine maintenance suffered to some extent. However, the travelled surfaces, road shoulders, and signs received adequate maintenance with a rather extensive hotmix patching programme being carried out on the Southern Trans-Canada Highway.
A fairly light snowfall was adequately handled by the two-shift seven-day-week
system. Icy conditions presented the major problem necessitating a higher-than-
normal consumption of salt and abrasives.
The major project undertaken by the district was the construction of 2.7 miles
of new road to connect the Celgar Road at Castlegar with the Hugh Keenleyside
Dam. Also undertaken was 8.41 miles of roadmix paving which included the
aforementioned 2.7 miles. Several other roads were strengthened in preparation
for roadmix paving.
Bridges
Beaver Creek Bridge (1194), 192 feet in length, was rebuilt from the piles up
and the Shukin Bridge, 110 feet was completely rebuilt. Other bridges received
routine maintenance.
Buildings
Only routine maintenance and minor improvements were undertaken on the
various buildings.
Ferries
The Castlegar ferry continued to operate on an 18-hour-day schedule with an
ever-decreasing volume of traffic being carried, especially since the continuation of
the Celgar Road through to the Hugh Keenleyside Dam.
Grand Forks District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads within the
district.
On the Southern Trans-Canada Highway brushing was completed at Eholt, the
area from Grand Forks to Rock Creek was sprayed with weed and brush killer, soil
 C 112 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1969/70
sterilent was applied to 23 miles of shoulder between Grand Forks and Greenwood,
and 1,400 feet of asphalt guard-rail was replaced with concrete no-post guard-rail
east of Lafferty.
Shoulders were widened and gravelled a distance of 3 miles east of the Village
of Midway, and left-turn slots were constructed for the Department of Commercial
Transport at the Midway scale site.
Improvements were carried out on Rock Creek-Bridesville Road 65 and Gilpin
Road 28. Brushing, widening, and gravelling were carried out on Rock Creek-
Kelowna Road 33.
In the Village of Midway, the district reconstructed and paved with an inverted
prime treatment, certain village roads. The work was performed on a 50 per cent
cost-sharing basis.
Construction.—Reconstruction was carried out on Rock Creek-Kelowna Road
33 from Kallis Creek to the north limit of the district, a distance of 3.9 miles, and
is now ready for paving.
Widening and realignment were continued on Brown Creek Road 84, Jewel
Lake Road 46, and Grand Forks-Franklin Road 30.
On Kettle River Main Road 43, %-in. crushed gravel was placed for a distance
of 8 miles in preparation for roadmix paving.
Approaches to new Kettle River Bridge in Grand Forks were constructed,
and 9.4 miles of new fencing was erected on the Southern Trans-Canada Highway.
Paving.—In the Grand Forks, Christina Lake, and Beaverdell areas, 7.35 miles
of penetration-seal paving were completed.
Five miles of seal paving were completed in the Christina Lake and Rhone
areas.
Extensive patching with hotmix asphalt was carried out on the Southern Trans-
Canada Highway from Anarchist Mountain summit to Rock Creek, and a truck lane
was paved on the Rock Creek hill. This work was performed with the co-operation
of the Paving Branch.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was below average throughout the district. All
roads were maintained in good winter condition.
Bridges
General maintenance was performed on all bridges in the district.
Major repairs were performed on the listed bridges: Carmi Bridge (891)
repairs to chords and King truss; Cudworth Bridge (6421) completely reconstructed;
Kettle River Bridge (6410) renewed cross ties and deck.
A Bailey bridge was erected on Tenth Street in Grand Forks for use during construction of a new bridge on 12th Street.
Buildings
A motor-vehicle exhaust system was installed in Grand Forks garage, and the
interior of the Beaverdell equipment shed was painted.
New Denver District
Roads
Maintenance.—This was the year the contractors and our day-labour forces
completed roadmix pavement on new alignment of Highway 6 from Fauquier to
Nakusp. Unfortunately, unusually heavy pavement patching was necessary on some
sections from Nakusp south to Arrow Park.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 113
District crews were more actively engaged on day labour and minor side-road
reconstruction than usual but the maintenance did not suffer.
The Inonoaklin Valley connection with Highway 6 and streets in the new community of Edgewood were paved.
Slips or minor road failures on new sections of road were repaired by the
Edgewood crew. Much of their time was spent on the new approaches to the
Needles ferry. Here a run-away truck lane was built on the Needles approach and
the approaches maintained below the concrete.
Spring break-up north of Halcyon was severe but traffic was maintained without serious closure.
Brandon Subdivision roads at Slocan were reconstructed by the Winlaw crew
in preparation for roadmix. The Kaslo crew made similar preparations in the Allen
Subdivision at Kaslo where the weather prohibited spreading the asphalt mulch.
Some sections of pavement on Highway 6 between Slocan and Summit Lake
suffered heavy damage during the spring break-up.
The winter being relatively mild, snowfall was light, but icing conditions were
such that an unusually high amount of salt was required on all roads.
On November 9, 1969, a major rock-fall at Cape Horn, 4 miles north of Slocan,
closed Highway 6 until December 19, 1969. Traffic was detoured via Kaslo-New
Denver.
A gabion retaining wall was built on the Kaslo Arterial Highway with assistance
from the village.
The clay slide just north of Winlaw on Highway 6 required further repair work
in June and little subsidence has been noted since.
Construction.—Two more miles of Route 23 were completed ready for roadmix pavement and 2 miles in heavy work were completed to subgrade.
Work continued east of New Denver and west of Kaslo on the Kaslo-New
Denver Road and 6 miles are ready for roadmix pavement.
At Mirror Lake property was acquired for, and a start made on improvements
to, Areola Road 7.
Work continued in the suburb areas around Nakusp in preparation for roadmix pavement.
Bridges
The MacDonald Creek Bridge was replaced by a major multiplate culvert installation.
Two multiplate culverts were erected on Brouse Loop Road 33 for installation
in April.
A bridge on the Enterprise Creek Road was bypassed by a new 3-mile section
of road started in 1968 and completed this spring.
Outside sway bracing was placed on all Howe truss bridges.
Ferries
The new M.V. Needles was put in service May 13, 1969. The summer was
taken up with problems of the shake-down for smooth operation.
Drift from the High Arrow flood caused damage to the impellers and from time
to time a diver was required for inspection and debris removal.
New landing wedges were required to match the ships requirement. These
were designed and built by the district.
By September the ferry was operating smoothly but low water in the spring
caused problems landing on the approaches and substitute earth landings were
required. The approach channels were cleared of obstructions.
 C 114 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1969/70
A spare barge has been remodelled and prepared for installation on cables
using an approach on the Fauquier side to be shared with boat launching facilities
supplied by the British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance.—Damage to pavement was about normal due to severe frost conditions during the previous winter.
The spring freshet caused serious erosion of some bridge approaches.
Approximately 5,000 lineal feet of concrete no-post guard-rail were installed,
part of which replaced some steel guard-rail.
As a result of the extension of its boundaries, 5.47 miles of Provincial highways
were placed under the jurisdiction of the City of Cranbrook.
Construction.—Reconstruction included 3.9 miles on the Wardner-Fort Steele
Road and 3 miles on the Mission Road.
On the North Star Ski Hill Road at Kimberley 1.59 miles were widened, gravelled, and paved.
Shoulders were widened to 10 feet on the Southern Trans-Canada Highway
from Cranbrook to 4.8 miles west and from Ryan to Irishman Creek, a distance of
3.45 miles.
Paving.—Roadmix pavement was laid on 2.35 miles of the Wardner-Fort
Steele Road and 1.8 miles of the Mission-Wycliffe Road.
In the City of Cranbrook plantmix pavement was laid in the west lane of
Arterial Highway 354r from Second Street North to Baker Street and the west half
of the truck route on Van Home Street North.
At Wasa 5.35 miles of subdivision roads were paved. In the Cranbrook area
1.28 miles of roads were gravelled and paved and 1.23 miles were repaved.
Farstad Way at Skookumchuck was gravelled and paved. The streets in Yahk
townsite were repaved.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was below average. Due to higher temperatures
than usual more than the normal amount of salt was used. All paved roads were
kept bare most of the winter.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained as required.
A new deck and new cross ties were installed on St. Mary's River-Wycliffe
Bridge (48).
Bridges repainted were Moyie River-Wards (873), Moyie River-Aldridge
(955), and Cranbrook East Overhead (1437).
Buildings
At Kimberley an extension was added to the Butler building and the front of
the garage was painted.
A new heating system, a new deep-well pump, and new chain lifts on all doors
were installed in the Cranbrook garage.
Fernie District
Roads
Maintennace.—Heavier than usual snow-pack during winter of 1968/69 caused
spring run-off to be worse than average.   Pore pressure and subsequent fill failure
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 115
caused a major fill failure on Southern Trans-Canada 3 between Elko and Fernie.
Side-road break-up was also caused by the same conditions.
Usual maintenance was carried on throughout the District. More attention
was given to weed and brush control.
Heavy industrial developments and the Libby Pondage project created a substantial increase in population, and consequent demand for road service. This will
continue through 1970 due to new coal fields developing in the Elk and Flathead
areas.
Construction.—A total of 6.04 miles of reconstruction on various roads was
completed.
Paving.—Mileage of roadmix paving totalled 4.64. Total mileage surface
treated was 2.5 and mileage receiving oil for a dust layer was 10.
Snow Removal.—Lighter-than-usual snowfall reduced snow-removal problems.
Ice conditions lasted longer than usual causing depletion of sand stockpiles by April
1st.
Golden District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads. A
weed and brush-control programme was continued. Signs were replaced or repaired
where necessary. Street-identification signs were installed at intersections in Windermere and Radium Hot Springs townsites. Pavement repair, crack filling, ditching, slope repair, and litter removal were carried out.
Numerous fill settlements were brought up to original level and repaved on
the Kootenay-Columbia Highway from Athalmer junction to 12 miles south of
Canal Flats. Five miles of shoulder restoration was completed in the Harrogate
area on the same highway.
The west approach fill to the Columbia River Bridge at Donald on the Trans-
Canada Highway was rip-rapped with shot rock, and additional hor'zontal drains
were installed.
Construction.—A total of 0.7 mile of new roads and streets was constructed in
the Lake Windermere and Canal Flats areas. Major reconstruction was carried out
on the Westside Road from Mile 5.7 to Mile 7.7 north of Dutch Creek.
A total of 19.8 miles of side roads was reconstructed by widening, installing
new culverts or lengthening existing ones, and gravelling. A total of 1.7 miles were
road-mixed. Right-of-way was purchased, clearing, grubbing, fencing, moving of
utility poles were completed on the Edgewater section of the Kootenay-Columbia
Highway in preparation for repaving project.
Snow Removal.—Roads to Mount Seven, Fairmont, and Panorama Ski Hills
were kept open. Snowfall was comparatively light but frequent, necessitating application of a large quantity of chemicals and sand.
A total of 26,000 tons of sand and 442 tons of salt were used. The trunk
highways and some of the side roads were kept bare all winter with only occasional
slush or ice conditions. Two shifts of 8 hours each were maintained from November
15th to March 1st with occasional call-outs of additional personnel during heavier
snow-storms.
Bridges
The pile trestle spans were rebuilt on Toby Creek Bridge (29). A temporary
50-foot steel stringer-span was used on the detour. Temporary bridges were dismantled at Horse Creek and Washout Creek on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway.

was converted to a welding shop.
Revelstoke District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads throughout
the year. Paving with plantmix pulvimix was completed on the Revelstoke to
Galena Bay section of the Revelstoke-Nakusp Highway. Major pavement patching
was carried out on the Trans-Canada Highway east of Revelstoke and the Revel-
stoke-Mica Creek Highway.
Street lighting and signals were installed and traffic islands constructed at
the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and secondary Highway 163 b in
Revelstoke.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 117
Considerable amount of work was required to maintain access to the Twelve
Mile ferry during the raising of the Arrow Lake prior to the completion of Mulve-
hill Bridge.
Accommodations were erected at 50 Mile (Mica access), Shelter Bay, and
Trout Lake.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall in most of the district was below average. Milder-
than-normal temperatures tended to create icing conditions, requiring above-average
use of sand and salt. There were minor snowslides on the Trans-Canada Highway,
the Revelstoke-Mica Creek Highway, and the Galena Pass-Gerrard Road, with no
extensive road closings resulting.
Construction.—Work was continued on the Galena Pass-Gerrard Road with
95 per cent of the clearing and 45 per cent of the construction being completed on
a 1.46-mile section. Approximately 75 per cent of the grade construction and
creek diversion has been completed on the Camp Creek revision on the Trans-
Canada Highway. Eleven miles of brushing were completed on Trans-Canada
Highway east. Various side roads and subdivision roads in the Revelstoke area
were improved and gravelled.
Bridges
Routine maintenance of bridges has fallen behind due to the bridge crew being
involved almost exclusively with other projects.
Repairs were carried out to the intake structure at Jack McDonald Avalanche
Shed.
Abutments for the new Camp Creek Bridge on the Trans-Canada Highway
were constructed by the district bridge crew.
A temporary steel structure was erected on the Blanket Creek detour road.
The substructure for the new Mulvehill Creek Bridge was formed and poured
by district forces. The rest of the bridge was completed by contract in October,
1969.
Upper Ulecillewaet Bridge (101) on Airport Way was dismantled upon completion of new bridge. Nichol Creek Bridge (91) and Keystone Creek Bridge (83)
were also dismantled due to their unsafe location above the Revelstoke-Mica Creek
Highway.
District forces were also employed on the resurfacing of the Albert Canyon
East Bridge.
Ferries
The M.V. Galena was delivered and commenced the run from Galena Bay to
Shelter Bay in May, 1969.
The M.V. Lardeau was tied up at Shelter Bay as a stand-by vessel and also to
provide accommodation for the ferry crew during construction of the new Public
Works living complex.
The Twelve Mile ferry, powered by a tug boat tied alongside, remained in
service during the raising of the Arrow Lake and was finally discontinued in July,
1969.

(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.-—Considerable frost-boil repairs were necessary on the Cariboo
Highway south of Quesnel and major shoulder failures required repair at Stoner,
Hixon, and Strathnaver.
Oil as a dust palliative was distributed on 16.2 miles of residential and the more
heavily travelled rural roads. Calcium chloride was applied to 28 miles of the
Barkerville Road, this year in liquid form, giving much better results than the
application of flake calcium last year.
Brush was cut and sprayed with herbicide on the Cariboo Highway north
of Quesnel and the paved portion of the Barkerville Road.
Extensive regravelling of subdivision roads was completed around Quesnel
and continuous grading was carried out on all dirt and gravel roads throughout
the district.
Construction.—Reconstruction of the Barkerville Road continued with 8.6
miles being completed in readiness for crushed gravel and a further 7 miles were
cleared. Reconstruction was also completed on short stretches of other main side
roads which totalled 8.4 miles.
A total of 1.6 miles of subdivision roads was constructed for the Lands Department.
Slides were repaired on the Fraser Road at Baker Hill, Macalister-Soda Creek
Ferry Road, and on the Fraser Road near Mackin Creek, where 1.5 miles of new
road were constructed to bypass a slide area.
A traffic island was completed at the junction of the Cariboo Highway and
Quesnel Hydraulic Road.
The site for our new maintenance establishment, near the airport, was cleared
and landscaped.

shortened by two spans.
A new ramp was constructed at Gravelle ferry and a new float built at Marguerite ferry. New aerial motor-driven cages were provided for winter use at Marguerite and Gravelle ferries.
The bridge crew constructed salt sheds in the Hixon and McLeese Lake sand
pits.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C  119
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.—A total of 25.8 miles was reconstructed, of which 2.3 miles
were on the Giscome Road, 4.5 miles on the Blackwater Road, 3 miles on the Chief
Lake Road, and 16 miles on the Parsnip River Road.
Snow Removal.—A 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
McPhee Bridge, a 40-foot timber span, was constructed.
Work was started on reconstruction of Mischinsinlika Bridge, an 80-foot
laminated-beam trestle. Reconstruction of Gagnon Bridge, a 51-foot laminated-
beam trestle, was completed.
Chouchouyenily and Beaverly Bridges were replaced with large diameter
culverts.
Ferries
Isle Pierre ferry operated normally.
Hansard ferry was eliminated with the opening of the Hansard Railway Bridge
to vehicular traffic.
Pouce Coupe District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and roads
with good results as the weatherman was very co-operative until September. Extensive hotmix patching was applied to 5 miles of poor paving west of Progress. Fifty-
three miles of brush spraying were completed with another 35 miles of brushing
done on rights-of-way by bulldozers during the winter months. Eleven miles of
shouldering were completed in the Chetwynd area with 12 miles of ditching improved with a yumbo loader. Dust-layer was applied to 30 miles of gravel road
while 120 tons of crack filler was used to seal cracks on paved highways. Several
severe frost heaves were excavated and repaired on the John Hart-Peace River
Highway and hotmix levelling coarse applied to several bridge approach settlements.
Construction.—Another very successful construction programme was completed on main side roads and farm settlement roads as over 100 miles of roads
were constructed or reconstructed with 180 miles of additional gravelling.
Snow Removal.—A normal winter with normal maintenance problems.
Bridges
No large structures were completed this year but 10 smaller bridge were built
with repairs carried out on 22 others.
Ferries
The Clayhurst ferry had a good running year with no breakdowns, but there
was a considerable change in operational time as a result of warmer water coming
from the new W. A. C. Bennett Dam upstream.
Usual shut-down time previously was the first week in November, but this year
operation was possible until the first week in January.   However, it was not possible
 C 120 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1969/70
to construct an ice bridge as in previous years as the badly formed ice could not be
flooded. Operation in the spring was a month earlier than usual though, in mid-
April rather than mid-May as before.
Fort St. John District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance and snow removal were carried out in
the North Peace River and Atlin (North) Electoral Districts on the 1,856 miles of
roads which include 45.10 miles of trunk highways, 435.90 miles of main highways,
and 37.40 miles of arterial highways.
The 1969 spring run-off was heavier than average and due to several late snowfalls roads in some areas became almost impassable. Good drying weather followed
and all gravel and dirt roads stabilized well.
Extremely heavy rains commenced during the middle of August and continued
until freeze-up, leaving all roads saturated. The winter, however, was very mild
with below-average snowfall. The winter shift system was again used at all maintenance depots to ensure prompt clean-up after storms. All paved highways were
maintained free of snow.
The Stikine River ferry on the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway was in operation from the 20th of May until the 27th of October, with only a short period of
down-time.   An ice bridge was maintained from January 16 to March 31, 1970.
Construction.—For the second year, an extensive programme of reconstruction
was carried out in this district. Work commenced on May 1st on the 5.4 miles of
major hill reconstruction on the Hudson Hope Road. This was soon followed by
major reconstruction and gravelling on the following roads: Road 103 to Alberta
Border, 5.0 miles; Road 101, Fort St. John Creek Hill, 2.2 miles; East Bypass
Road 146, 3 miles of major gravelling (18 inches); and 13 miles of major reconstruction and gravelling on the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway.
In addition, major reconstruction and gravelling was done on 15 miles on
Road 101, 8 miles on Road 108, 8 miles on Road 129, 1.3 miles on Road 269, 2
miles on Road 213, 2 miles on Road 219, 4 miles on Road 223, and 7.2 miles on
Road 169. Also, 66 miles were either gravelled or regravelled on 28 different district access roads.
The construction season was very short, as after the end of August heavy
rains prevented all construction. Gravelling, however, continued until well after
freeze-up.
Gravel crushing by contract was done in the various areas as follows: 50,000
tons, Fort St. John area (Mason pit); 50,000 tons, Clayhurst area (Imperial pit);
and 50,000 tons, Rose Prairie area (Lindquist pit). Also 115,500 tons were
crushed along the Watson Lake-Stewart-Cassiar Highway. Some of this gravel
was used as surfacing.
There were approximately 5.3 miles of pavement placed on the Fort Nelson
streets and 26.2 miles of Alaska Highway were treated by sealcoating. District
crews crack-filled 103.7 miles of pavement and used 100 tons of hotmix asphalt on
pavement repairs.
Bridges
The Fort St. John district bridge crew had a very busy year. In addition to
maintenance work done on 12 district bridges, the crew constructed eight new
bridges, including two in the Atlin North area and a major bridge in the Prespatou
area.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  121
Buildings
The district established a new maintenance depot north of the Blueberry River
to service the Prespatou to Aitken Creek areas. This included construction of a
40 foot by 40 foot steel building, a water and sewer system, and two trailer stalls.
Construction commenced on the new Fort St. John shop roof renewal.
A water well and water system were partly completed at the Good Hope Lake
camp, and an exploratory water well was drilled at the Dease Lake camp.
Vanderhoof District
Roads
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all trunk and main
highways and, to a lesser degree, on minor side roads. Special attention was given
to landscaping, brush cutting, and seeding of Highway 16 right-of-way.
District crews carried out major improvements on 6 miles of Sackner Road
128, and 3 miles on Braeside Road 12. The continued influx of settlers has necessitated the reopening of several old roads, unused for many years.
Construction.—The completion of 2.3 miles on Highway 27 completed reconstruction of the highway to Fort St. James. Access to the Tache Indian Reserve
was possible upon completion of the remaining 5 miles of Tache Road 207. Nine
miles of reconstruction were carried out on Germansen Landing Road 117, which
serves the Pinchi Mercury Mine and the newly established Takla development complex. Sowchea Road 110 was reditched and gravelled for 4 miles, and 3 miles of
reconstruction were carried out on Francois Lake Road 42, Nautley Road 48, and
Kenney Dam Road 2. Thirteen miles of widening of Highway 16 was carried out
on behalf of the Paving Branch, preparatory to awarding a paving contract.
Snow Removal.—Snowfall was average for the year. Above-average temperatures and frequent snowfalls necessitated the use of a large amount of sodium
chloride to keep highways safe for the motoring public.
Buildings
The new maintenance depot in Vanderhoof was completed and occupied in
the fall of 1969. The Fort St. James yard was fenced, landscaped, and gravelled
preparatory to paving.
Bridges
The Greer Creek, Tsilcoh, and Fourteen Mile Bridges were reconstructed.
Major repairs were carried out on the Nechako Bridges 1 and 2. Routine maintenance was carried out on several other bridges in the district.
The bridge crew produced 13,000 lineal feet of piling from reserve, which was
transported to Prince George for treatment.
Mining Roads and Bridges
Twenty-five miles of Germansen-Aiken Lake Road were reconstructed, and
routine maintenance carried out on 152 miles of mining roads. The following
mining bridges were reconstructed: Shoemaker (6955), Dead Dog, California, Nine
Mile (6969), Thirteen Mile (6970), and Manson River Bridge (6960). A 110-foot
section of Bailey bridging was purchased for the crossing of the Mesilinka River.
Maintenance and repairs were carried out on nine other bridges on the Fort St.
James-Aiken Lake Road.

Thirteen bridges were repaired. Most of the repairs consisted of patching the
deck and railing.
Construction.—Reconstruction on the Queen Charlotte City-Masset Road was
continued. Four and one-half miles were cleared with 9.5 miles of grade constructed
to sub-grade and 6.2 miles completed to profile grade.
Three new sand and gravel pits were located to complete the road into Masset.
The new camp-site in Masset was prepared, with the camp currently being
moved from Port Clements.
Drilling and blasting and road-widening were completed on both the Stewart
Arterial and the Shore Road at Alice Arm.
 C 124 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1969/70
One mile of the Stewart Arterial, 1 mile of the Stewart-Watson Lake Road,
4 miles of the Kitsault Road, and 0.1 mile of the Shore Road were gravelled.
Full width of right-of-way on all existing open streets and the Cemetery Road
except Third Avenue in Queen Charlotte City were cleared.
Snow Removal.—Light snowfall in all areas with mild temperatures presented
very few problems with the Prince Rupert and Stewart depots employing a shift
system.
Ferries
Ferry services on a subsidized basis were inaugurated between Prince Rupert
and Dodge Cove and between Graham Island and Moresby Island.
Buildings
The new yard-site at Stewart was fenced and a fuel-shed was constructed.
A new salt-shed and a loader-bay were constructed at Prince Rupert.

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF EXPENDITURE
The following pages disclose in detail Departmental expenditures for the fiscal
year 1969/70.
A gross sum of $174,480,925.69 was expended for repairs, maintenance, and
reconstruction of roads, bridges, and ferries during 1969/70, an increase of almost
$41,000,000 over the preceding year, which when reported, had reached an all-
time high. Again the increase is attributable to capital construction of the multiple
highway systems and ferry routes as illustrated in the graph on the following page.
