The Honourable W. D. Black,
Minister of Highways,
Victoria, British Columbia.
Sir: Respectfully submitted herewith is the Annual Report of the Department
of Highways for the fiscal year ended March 31, 1971.
The early part of the year was comparatively quiet, but activity accelerated
rapidly in the latter part and the Department expenditure totalled over 135 million
dollars.
A ceremony near Mount Robson on August 15th, 1970 officially dedicated the
first road connection from Prince George to the Alberta boundary, Yellowhead 16,
as well as the improved Yellowhead South 5 route to Kamloops.
A new position, Municipal Programmes Engineer, was added to the staff of the
Planning Branch.
The Senior Personnel Officer's Report lists a number of valuable employees
who retired with impressively long service records. Most notable is Mr. L. J.
Moore, former Chief Property Negotiator, who joined the Department in 1947 as
its first full-time Right-of-way Agent, and built the Property Negotiation Branch to
its present stature.   Mr. Moore spent 44 years in the service of the Province.

 REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF ELECTRONICS B  17
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF ELECTRONICS
Design of solid state, battery operated repeaters and duplex trunk equipment,
together with necessary control equipment, was completed during the year, but
delivery of individual units continued to be slow due to the amount of environmental testing required and the highly specialized requirement. This situation is,
however, improving considerably.
This type of equipment is now installed at some 58 sites where 133 individual
equipments are operational. The record of reliability and lack of maintenance
problems on these units has been outstanding.
Battery supplies to power the units have been in operation for a sufficient time
to project a minimum of five years between battery changes.
Design work on new regional control consoles for Kamloops and Nelson was
undertaken and construction on same is well under way. Incorporated in these
are facilities for the control of any station within the Province served by the trunk
system.
Surveys continued for the system expansion and siting and design are almost
complete in this area for the entire Province.
A considerable number of the original radio-sites were disposed of during the
year and the use of diesel engines for prime power requirements has been eliminated,
resulting in considerable savings and greatly improved over-all reliability and
efficiency.

REPORT OF THE SENIOR DESIGN ENGINEER
BRIDGE DESIGN
W. A. Bowman, Bridge Design Engineer
The large-scale programme of designing bridges for the replacement of inadequate understrength bridges as well as river crossings and grade-separation
structures on new routes continues.
The increase in traffic on the highways and the railways of the Province necessitates a continuing programme of elimination of level-crossings and of grade
intersections.
The magnitude of this programme is indicated by the following table of designs
in various stages of completion:

Road, in the Lower Mainland area on Highway 17 between Tsawwassen and Ladner
Interchange, and on Highway 11 between C Street and Mission; also covered were
the approaches to the Overlander Bridge at Kamloops.
Higher level photography was obtained to produce reconnaissance-type mapping between Kamloops and the Highland Valley and on Vancouver Island between
Campbell River and Buttle Lake, Buttle Lake and Gold River, Gold River and
Port McNeill, and Sayward to Woss Lake.
Low-level photography was used to produce high-order mapping on the British Columbia Highway 1 between Taylor Way and the Capilano River, east of
Golden at the slide, on the Lougheed Highway between Pitt River and Haney, on
the Patricia Bay Highway between Haliburton and Island View Roads, on Highway
13 between Highway 401 and Fraser Way, on Highway 15 between Highway 401
and Fraser Way, on Carvolth Road, and on the Yellowhead Highway at the Terrace
Bridge.
High-level photography was used to produce low-order mapping on the future
Island Highway between Kelsey Bay and Woss Lake, and Woss Lake to Nimpkish
Lake; on the John Hart Highway between the Parsnip River and Bennett Creek;
on Highway 6 between Reiswig and Ferry Creek, Dutchman Creek and Monashee
Pass Creek, and Mclntyre Lake and Schiell Lake; on the Bella Coola Road between
Chilanko Forks and Towdystan; between Crawford Bay and Marysville through
Rose Pass in the Kootenays; at Sombrio Creek on Vancouver Island; and between
Hope and Merritt through the Coquihalla Valley.
Route projections or layouts were made on aerial photos or mapping for the
following: Towdystan to Chilanko Forks, Golden bypass, Nine Mile Creek to Rock
Creek Town, Mclntyre Lake to Schiell Lake, Reiswig to Ferry Creek, Dutchman
Creek to Monashee Pass Creek, Crawford Bay to Rose Pass, Rose Pass, Port
Hardy to Holberg, Highway 9 to Hope, Kamloops to Logan Lake, Three Valley

 B 34 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
The total mileage of grading projects constructed by contract amounted to
95.33, which includes 9.7 miles of four-lane highway.
On British Columbia Highway 1 a project 8.22 miles in length between Sorrento and Salmon Arm has been completed. A half-mile remains to be completed
between Merritt Junction and Valleyview, a 4.73-mile four-lane section. A contract
has been awarded for the construction of 4.97 miles of four-lane highway from Jones
Creek to Hunter Creek west of Hope, and work will commence early in the next
fiscal year.
On British Columbia Highway 401 work is under way on 3.1 miles of four-lane
freeway between Horseshoe Bay and Taylor Way. Construction of the Prest Road
Interchange near Chilliwack is practically completed.
All the current projects on British Columbia Highway 3 have been completed.
They are Murphy Creek to Trail, 3.19 miles; Kid Creek to Goat River east of
Creston, 6.74 miles; and the new Wardner bridge approaches, 4.52 miles.
On the Yellowhead Highway, the Exchamsiks River Bridge approaches, Kitseguecla River Bridge approaches, Clyde Creek revision, Mcintosh Creek revision,
and Lamming Mills to McBride section have all been completed. The difficult section, 12.4 miles in length between Galloway Rapids and McNeil River, is nearing
completion.
On the Cariboo Highway, 1.2 miles of the Williams Lake to Mountain House
section remain to be reconstructed. The 11.2-mile section from Dog Prairie to
Australian has been completed.
Construction on the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway has been completed on
projects from Burrage River to Ningunsaw River and from South Bell-Irving River
crossing to North Bell-Irving River crossing, a total distance of 62 miles. A contract has been awarded for construction from Beaverpond Creek to Bob Quinn Lake,
11.48 miles in length. It is expected that tenders will be called early in the next
fiscal year for the one remaining gap, which is from North Bell-Irving River crossing
to Beaverpond Creek, a distance of 16 miles.
Reconstruction is in progress on some 25 miles of local roads in the Waldo to
Newgate area. The relocation of these roads is necessary due to the reservoir
created by the construction of the Libby Dam on the Kootenai River in Idaho, U.S.A.
Construction of the Ruby Creek to Haig section of the Lougheed Highway is
proceeding on schedule. A contract awarded late in the year on this highway is
between Pitt River and Haney, where widening to four lanes is being carried out
on 6 miles.
Approaches to overpasses over the Roberts Bank Railway are being constructed
on the Pacific Highway at Cloverdale and on the King George VI Highway. An
overpass on the Tsawwassen Highway over the same railway has been completed.
A 9.3-mile section between Ymir and Euphrates on the Nelson-Nelway Highway is 63 per cent complete.
On Vancouver Island, the widening of the Patricia Bay Highway to four lanes
is continuing. Two contract projects totalling 9.45 miles are 89 per cent complete.
Reconstruction of an 11.8-mile section of the Cowichan Lake Highway is completed
and is in progress on another 8-mile section. On completion of this the entire highway will have been reconstructed.

 B 40 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1970/71
REPORT OF THE SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
GENERAL
Expenditures amounted to $13,535,919.99, some $5,034,546.31 less than
1969.
A total of 324.5 miles of two-lane highway was paved, 19.5 miles less than the
previous year. In addition, Paving Branch crews roadmixed approximately 68.2
miles of road, surface-treated 59 miles, and shoulder-treated 33.5 miles.
Weather conditions were generally favourable throughout the paving season,
and the performance of contractors and suppliers was generally good.
CONTRACT CRUSHING, BASE CONSTRUCTION, DRAINAGE,
AND PAVING
Twenty-four projects were carried over from 1969/70, all of which involved
substantial field work and expenditure. Four projects were called and awarded during the fiscal year. One project for paving in a Provincial park was called and completed for the Department of Recreation and Conservation.
The paving of service areas and parking-lots for various Provincial departments
and agencies was included in our paving contracts.
Twenty-two projects were substantially completed during the year. Six projects
involved field work, and expenditure will be continued into the next year.
Extensive use has been made of softer cut-back asphalts in the colder areas of
the Province, as it is indicated that this will reduce maintenance problems resulting
from cold-weather cracking. This policy is under continuous review as results from
similar investigations in other parts of Canada become available.
PULVIMIX AND SURFACE TREATMENT
Three day-labour crews under the over-all control and direction of a senior
technician were again employed in 1970. RC1 cut-back asphalt continues to be
used in this work when the Pettibone Wood Mixer is used, as the results appear to
be favourable. MC2 asphalt is still used with other roadmix processes. A total of
127.2 miles was surface-treated or roadmixed, and 33.5 miles of shoulder treatment
were completed by the Paving Branch crews.
A 3-mile test section of road was constructed, using a relatively small percentage of emulsified asphalt to stabilize a gap-graded gravel base which was difficult
to compact by conventional methods. Early reports show that, provided the section
is sealcoated to prevent ravelling, this method will be successful and will reflect an
over-all economy under similar circumstances.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
As a result of extensive investigations throughout Canada on the incidence and
causes of cold-weather cracking of pavements, specifications for asphalt cements and
liquid asphalts are under review. The evidence so far indicates that the use of
softer grades of asphalt in areas where temperatures of — 40 °F are experienced will
prevent such cracking. The problem is also influenced by the type of crude used
for the manufacture of asphalt. This year the Department's policy has been to use
SC5 liquid asphalt in northern areas, AC4 asphalt cement in south and central
 REPORT OF SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER B 41
Interior areas, and AC6 asphalt cement in the Lower Mainland and Island areas
of the Province. Further observations and field measurement of the characteristics
of existing pavements is being undertaken to assess the validity of this policy. Proposed changes to asphalt specifications have been discussed with asphalt suppliers
to develop asphalts more suitable to the climatic conditions of the various parts of
the Province. Some problems of mix design using SC5 and other liquid asphalts
have been investigated and a new design method is being developed based on the
conventional Marshal method, but employing vibratory compaction of the specimens to approximate the effect of traffic on newly laid, very soft mixes. The method
usually results in lower optimum asphalt contents than would normally be obtained
with the harder grades of asphalt.
To determine rapidly the density being achieved during the compaction process, a trial was made using a machine which measures density continuously by
nuclear methods as it moves along the road surface. Results are being checked
against densities obtained by conventional method of extracting asphalt from cores
drilled from the pavement.
The introduction of large vibratory rollers has encouraged the Department to
investigate their effectiveness for compacting and finishing asphalt pavements. Several trials have been run this year to compare these machines with conventional
rolling equipment. Limited results obtained so far indicate that their performance
is satisfactory, but more field experience under a greater variety of weather conditions
is desirable before unrestricted acceptance is given for their use. The main advantage
of such machines appears to be their greater potential for productivity, which should
help to reduce the cost of construction.
PROGRAMMING
One of the functions of pavement maintenance is the achievement of long life
and uniformity of performance. To this end, the development of a system of rating
the condition of the pavement, relating it to the traffic carried, and developing suitable policies for renewal on a continuous planned basis, is essential if annual expenditures are to be minimized. Pavements tend to wear out at different rates, so that
it is common to find small sections in poor condition in the midst of several miles
in generally good condition. To bring the whole up to a uniform standard, it is
necessary to repave these small sections while leaving the remainder to give additional service. This may result in higher unit costs of paving because of the increased
haul and production costs for smaller quantities, but should reduce the over-all
annual expenditure per mile. Wherever possible, therefore, intermittent repaving
of small sections on either side of a larger job is being included in contracts. This
was done this year on Highway 3, near Fernie.
PERSONNEL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
The Senior Paving Engineer and Senior Materials Engineer accepted an exchange in positions in keeping with the Department's over-all policy of broadening
the experience of personnel.
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 transferred to another Branch within the Department.
The Senior Paving Engineer attended the annual conference of the Canadian
Technical Asphalt Association at Edmonton in November 1970.
 B 42 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
One professional engineer was appointed to the position of Regional Paving
Engineer in Nelson, following a Civil Service Commission competition.
Regional training courses were held during the winter to train engineering
assistants in survey procedures, inspection duties, and test procedures as used in the
Paving Branch. A manual of instruction was prepared for "on-the-job" training of
engineering aides.
The Senior Paving Engineer held a meeting with Project Supervisors and Senior
Branch personnel to discuss the year's work and to establish Branch policies.
One Project Supervisor transferred to a different Branch within the Department, and one resigned from the Government Service.
All university students, who had been employed by the Branch previously, were
re-employed during the summer construction season.
SAFETY
The Branch's safety record was unfortunately marred by lost-time accidents

 B 48 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
REPORT OF THE BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION ENGINEER
Thirteen new bridges were completed or reconstructed in the 1970/71 fiscal
year, and as of March 31, 1971, 31 structures were under construction. Particulars
are given in the accompanying listing.
Construction was generally slowed by labour disputes and, when settlement
was reached, sufficient construction time before cold weather was not available for
deck construction in the Tete Jaune area. As a result, contracts were called in the
fall for the placing of decks for 14 bridges in the following construction season.
The first structure over the British Columbia Hydro Roberts Bank Railway,
the four-lane Tsawwassen Overhead crossing on Highway 17, was built in a record
time of three months.
Department forces continued with the construction of footings at Blanket Creek
on the Revelstoke-Shelter Bay Highway, where work was slowed by difficult topography and poor rock.
Considerable exploration and study were carried out under the direction of a
Departmental geologist to ensure the founding of footings on competent rock. By
snowfall the foundation problems had all been solved and the placing of concrete
for the last two footings was postponed for the next year.
Construction commenced in the late fall on Wardner Bridge and nearby CPR
Overpass; both structures on a portion of the British Columbia Highway 3 being
relocated because of the flooding of the Kootenay River by the Libby Dam. Work
continued throughout the winter and by March 31, 1971, about 60 per cent of the
work had been done.
Fourteen and a half miles downstream of Wardner Bridge work commenced
in January 1971 on the construction of substructure for Kikomun Bridge. This
structure, to be located on the Elko-Newgate Highway over the Kootenay River, is
also associated with Libby Pondage.
Greatest activity during the year was centred at the two major crossings of the
Fraser River—Mission Bridge and Knight Street Bridge. By the year's end the substructure for Mission Bridge was complete and fabrication of 1,650 tons of structural steelwork for approach spans was well under way. On the Knight Street Bridge,
all substructure on Mitchell Island and Lulu Island was complete.
In order to get construction under way early in the construction season, 12
bridge contracts were called between January 1 and March 31, 1971.

 REPORT OF SENIOR TRAFFIC ENGINEER B 71
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 motor-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 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 which traffic is separately recorded for each direction of travel. A considerable number of counts were taken for special purposes such as railway-crossing
studies, intersection studies, and planning studies.
Punched-tape traffic counters are gradually being acquired so that calculation
of traffic-count information can be done with data processing equipment. A translator machine is being used to transfer information from punched tapes to computer
cards. Some difficulties are being experienced in the changeover to partial automation of the processing of traffic-count data.
Summer daily traffic volumes for 1970 are currently running about 38,000
vehicles on the Port Mann Bridge, 51,000 vehicles on the Pattullo Bridge, 61,000
vehicles on the First Narrows Bridge, 70,000 vehicles on Oak Street Bridge, 39,000
vehicles in the George Massey Tunnel, and 14,000 vehicles on the Okanagan Lake
Bridge. Data from the permanent count stations showed that traffic for 1970
increased over 1969 totals by approximately 5Vz per cent in the northern Interior,
12 per cent in the southern Interior, 6 per cent in the Fraser Valley, and 7 per cent
on Vancouver Island.
Assistance was given to the Planning Branch of the Department, municipalities,
and the University of British Columbia in obtaining traffic-volume data by using
Traffic Branch traffic-counting equipment and personnel.
Numerous intersection problems were investigated during the year. Many
manual vehicle-turning movement counts were taken and designs were prepared for
improvements at approximately 60 intersections. Improvements such as widening,
channelization, signing, and signal revisions were carried out at many of these intersections to give greater capacity, to reduce hazards and delay, and to facilitate the
flow of traffic. Radio-controlled warning signs in the vicinity of Port Mann Bridge
on the British Columbia Highway were augmented and modified in an effort to
reduce multiple collisions during adverse or unusual conditions.
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 19 intersections throughout the
Province. Flashing beacons were installed at 11 intersections. Approximately 428
street-lighting luminaires were installed at highway intersections, highway interchanges, and ferry-landings. A large amount of electrical design work was carried
out in connection with construction on new ferry terminals and reconstruction of
 B 72
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
existing ones. Three electrical technicians were fully occupied with equipment
preparation and maintenance in the Victoria electrical shop and with installation
and maintenance of electrical traffic information and control installations at locations
throughout the Province.
Eight railway grade-crossings were signalized in co-operation with the Federal
Railway Transport Committee and the railways. The British Columbia Hydro
Authority Railway installed signals at all seven 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, 1969, to
October 31, 1970, 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.

REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
Generally severe winter weather with heavy snowfalls in most areas of the
Province kept ploughing and sanding equipment working full time throughout the
winter. In addition, the long winter season, beginning early and lasting until early
April in Interior areas, was responsible for a considerable increase in expenditures
over the previous year.
A record total snowfall of over 800 inches was recorded on the Salmo to Creston
summit, surpassing the old mark of 640 inches. Several slides occurred on this
highway during the winter, but were cleared without difficulty.
Heavy and frequent snowfalls occurred on the Yellowhead Highway between
Terrace and Prince Rupert, causing numerous slides throughout the season. However, traffic delays were kept to a minimum by the prompt action of the snow-
removal crews.
Though a very high flood potential existed in many of the Interior areas, a
colder-than-average spring regulated the run-off and very little flood damage
occurred.
DAY LABOUR
Day-labour projects were continued on a normal scale throughout the Province.
ROADSIDE DEVELOPMENT
The roadside development programme continued, with slope seeding carried
out by the two Departmental hydroseeding crews. While no seeding contracts were
undertaken during the year, a total of 1,783 acres was seeded and an additional 798
acres were refertilized.
The weed and brush control programme continued and during the year training
sessions were held in Nelson, Kamloops, Prince George, and Smithers, at which time
the applicators sat for the examination which qualified those successful for the
pesticide applicators certificate.
Production of the concrete roadside tables was continued and during this fiscal
year 270 were made by the Vernon Highway District. A new prefabricated-concrete
toilet building was designed by the Department, and 71 of these units were produced
at Vernon. Two sets of fiberglass moulds were made for the production of the toilet
buildings; four additional sets of moulds for the tables, and six sets of moulds for the
fiberglass toilet stools were also produced.
A highway beautification programme was instigated on Highway 401 between
Vancouver and Chilliwack. A total of 13V£ tons of daffodils was planted in the
median and a start was made on the planting of several thousand flowering trees.
The plant material was obtained through public donation as part of the 1971 Centennial, and the planting was undertaken by the Department of Highways.
The Department co-operated with the Centennial Committee by placing flags
and emblems at various points-of-entry into the Province and at Maintenance establishments.

REPORT OF THE CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
PLANNING BRANCH
M. G. Elston, Senior Planning Engineer
The Planning Branch activities are directed toward the identification of future
transportation needs in the Province to serve and encourage anticipated land use.
A small, specially trained staff has been organized to conduct the necessary studies
that will lead to programme development. A considerable effort was directed toward
the regional study of the Okanagan Valley. In conjunction with current studies of
land use, the present transportation demands were assessed and projections made
for the future so that alternate highway networks could be evaluated. This study
includes both the trunk and main highways, together with the secondary road system.
An area study of traffic movements in the Coquitlam area was also instigated
during the year using the roadside-interview technique to determine origin and destination information on the car-users. The objective of this study is to evaluate the
types of facilities that will best serve the present and future transportation demands.
Although a freeway has been planned in this area for years, it has never been tested
to determine whether it will provide the required service by itself or whether it should
by supplemented by an additional system for shorter trips.
Some 24 smaller studies were undertaken to determine trip lengths at areas of
congestion in the Province. Specially designed techniques were employed using
licence-plate checks at appropriate screenlines to obtain the necessary data so that
the travelling public was not interrupted or inconvenienced. The substantial volume
of data obtained was analysed, using computer techniques developed in the section.
Studies were commenced on the British Columbia Highway between Victoria
and Nanaimo and the proposed Coquihalla route to determine functional requirements for roads required to service future demands. A considerable effort was
spent with the regional districts, both through participation on the technical planning
committees and working committees. The Department objective is to encourage
suitable co-ordination of land use and transportation planning which will lead to
reduced expenditures in the long run.
The Branch and regional and district officials processed in 1970 some 2,985
tentative and 3,558 final subdivisions, 534 controlled access and 2,714 ordinary
entrance permit applications, and 292 rezoning applications. Growth in number
and complexity of developments in recent years has increased the work load and it
now forms a significant proportion of a highway engineer's time. Close liaison with
Department of Municipal Affairs and regional districts is a main feature of this work.
GEOTECHNICAL AND MATERIALS BRANCH
J. W. G. Kerr, Senior Materials Engineer
Due to the general policy of fiscal restraint, Branch activities were somewhat
reduced, although work for planning and design proceeded to the full capacity of
available staff.  This was a period for reorganization and training.
 REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER B 75
Personnel
A number of senior personnel changes took place during 1970. J. W. G. Kerr,
P.Eng., was appointed Senior Materials Engineer vice E. E. Readshaw, who transferred to Senior Paving Engineer.  The following staff left the Branch:
(a) To other Government employment—
M. C. Nesbitt, P.Eng., to Construction Branch.
R. A. Edwards, P.Eng., to Water Rights Branch, Department of Lands,
Forests, and Water Resources.
D. Mason, to Department of Trade and Industry.
(b) To private industry—
Dennis Lindberg, P.Eng., Regional Materials Engineer, Prince George.
Brian Kern, P.Eng., Engineering Geologist.
The following appointments were made in replacement—
A. Vanderkooi, P.Eng., from Paving Branch to Regional Materials Engineer, Prince George, vice D. Lindberg, P.Eng.
Colin Maber, E.I.T., vice D. Mason.
Dermod Wood, P.Eng., vice R. A. Edwards, P.Eng.
Bruce McLeod, Engineering Geologist, vice Brian Kern, P.Eng.
L. deBoer, P.Eng., Regional Materials Engineer at Kamloops, was transferred
to Victoria and Roger Pratt, P.Eng., was posted from Victoria to Kamloops, as
Regional Materials Engineer.
Generally speaking, there has been an over-all loss of valuable experience in
our field of activity as a result of the changes. However, it is hoped that this will
be compensated by a vigorous fresh approach to our work.
Activities
The table attached summarizes data associated with our activities at regional
and headquarters levels. Some aspects of this work are highlighted under subject
headings, as follows:
Soils and Foundation Group
This engineering group has had a very active year. Staff changes resulted in
four new engineers out of the six, so that we are experiencing a period of personnel training in the theoretical, report writing, and practical job-site aspects of
soil mechanics to highway design and construction, landslide analysis, and bridge
foundations.
Some highlights of the work of the group are now discussed.
Bridges—Twenty-two bridges were investigated in the past year. Several of
them involve special problems which mean continuing involvement in an engineering
consultative capacity, as follows:
Roberts Bank Overpass approaches at Highway 15 (Cloverdale) and at Highway 99 (King George V Highway) have been awarded. At Cloverdale the sand-
drain installation under the south approach fill is under way, using the Stang jet
method of installing the 70-foot deep, 16-inch diameter drains. The north approach
fill at this location is complete, including a temporary surcharge to accelerate settlements. Construction rates and settlements are being monitored by settlement plate
and foundation pore water-pressure gauges.
 B 76 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Peterson Creek Bridge, Kamloops, is a 600-foot-long structure founded on
deep shafts, carry about 6,500 tons per pier and working to an unusually high allowable bearing capacity of 12 tons per square foot. Because of this, special load cell
instrumentation is proposed for the base of these shafts, construction of which has
begun. Two types of load cells will be installed for comparison of result—a commercially made vibrating wire unit developed by the Building Research Station,
England, and a pancake type developed in the Geotechnical and Materials Branch.
Kikomun Creek crossing, required because of the Libby Pondage Scheme,
involved about 700 feet of bridge and a total of about 3,000 feet of causeway up to
90 feet high, which will extend into the new lake. Because there will be lake drawdown on both sides of this high fill, special zoning of materials (and materials search)
were designed for fill stability purposes. Subexcavation of poor foundation soils
was completed recently. Heavy riprap up to one-quarter-ton rock is essential because of the lake fetch and wind and wave erosion potential.
The subsurface investigation of the site has revealed that a surficial layer of
loose-medium dense SM materials (12-15 ft.) is underlaid by a 25-foot layer of
hard clays followed by bedrock and shale.
The bridge is to be supported by a pier founded on steel H-piles. These are to
be driven to bedrock to attain the desired bearing capacities and eliminate settlement.
Since difficult driving conditions are expected through the hard clays, the piles may
be prebored.
Quadra Street Overpass in Saanich, a continuous bridge structure over a new
location of highway, has foundations in bedrock on one end and on a very soft, deep
deposit of marine clay on the other. To cope with the limited strength and the high
settlement proclivities of these clays, a very complicated pile foundation design is
necessary. Conventional pile driving is not permissible because of high pore pressure in the soft clays. Lightweight aggregate is required in the upper 10 feet of fill
to avoid overstressing the already heavily loaded foundation soils. This bridge work
will commence in the late spring of 1971.
One pile-load test was run in 1970. This was at the Kootenay River crossing at
Wardner, to test the capacity of 30-foot-long steel H-piles required to carry 60 tons
per pile. At Wardner and Kikomun Creek crossing bridges, our Branch has been
involved in advising on pile lengths and bearing capacities progressively as the piles
were installed at each pier.
Coquitlam Underpass was originally conceived as a highway overpass over the
CPR. However, the nature of the supporting soil, a 25-foot-thick flood-plain deposit
of gravel over 60 feet of soft, sensitive, normally consolidated clay, overlaying dense
till, made impracticable the high approach fill required. The concept was changed
to a highway underpass, with only 7 feet of additional fill required on the railway,
thus greatly reducing expected settlements.
We were asked to give values for 24- and 16-inch-diameter pipe-piles that the
consultant wanted to use. The major difficulty was probability of failure of the piles
when end-bearing on the till, due to negative skin friction. The solution was to
specify that the piles be bitumen coated and driven with an oversize end plate to
reduce the skin friction through the clay layer. To prevent damage to the bitumen
coating during driving, the piles were specified to be driven within a casing through
the top few feet of gravel. This method has made small-diameter pipe-piles practical
and economical under these conditions.
 REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER B 77
Murray Avenue Overpass follows a curved location over several tracks in a
small railroad classification yard, and also affects access to an industrial area. This
is part of a highway access to the new bridge over the Fraser River. This is still in
the design stage.
Spring Creek crossing at Terrace, a large timber trestle over a wooded ravine,
has deteriorated to the extent that it is unsafe for logging-trucks. A soils and hydraulic study was made to compare the economics of using a culvert and fill rather
than a new bridge.
San Juan River Bridge at Port Renfrew: Here a new highway location crosses
two river branches on its delta. The drill holes showed that this part of the fiord-
valley was filled with organic materials over 120 feet in depth. This project is still
in the design stage.
Bell-Irving Bridge: The Bell-Irving River is shifting its channel across the
valley to a considerable extent. Therefore, the main problem appears to involve
protection of the river banks in the vicinity of the proposed bridge against lateral
erosion. Heavy riprap protection of the banks of an approximate length of 700 feet
has been recommended. The only pier will be founded on steel pipe-piles driven
close ended. The pile cap is to be protected by heavy riprap against the expected
local scour action.
Squamish Highway Underpass (south approach fill): Since the district maintenance crews have been using this area for a waste dump, the local conditions have
changed considerably since the original design was made. This has necessitated a
review of the design of both the fill and the south abutment foundation design. At
present, drilling investigations and resurveying of the area are in progress.
Some of the other bridges reported on, or under drilling investigation, are:
Gore Creek, Hunter Creek, Strachan Mountain 2, and Maria Slough.
Soil surveys—Recent soil surveys prepared at regional level and reviewed in
this office are:
Miles
Chilcotin Bridge to Williams Lake  16
Progress to Arras     7
Pitt River to Haney     6.5
Terrace to Shames  18
to Round Prairie     3.4
Cape Horn to Essondale     2.5
Port McNeill to Nimpkish Lake  10
These jobs generally have not been without some problems such as peat requiring instrumentation and surcharging to remove settlements, berms for foundation
stability, and benching of backslopes.
Soil survey work is in progress at a proposed CNR relocation west of Hope,
drilling in the Fraser River.
Special Problems
Prest Road Interchange
At Prest Road, near Chilliwack, the south approach to the new structure had
to cross a Westcoast Transmission buried high-pressure 30-inch-diameter pipe-line.
The design required a 12-foot fill over an existing shallow fill road. At this
point, the encased pipe-line was located 8 feet below the existing road. The pipe
owners would permit only 7 feet equivalent fill additional loading. This was
achieved by constructing a prismoidal sawdust fill with special internal drainage
facilities.   The sideslopes and top of the sawdust were covered with 6-mil poly-
 B 78 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
ethylene sheeting enveloped with 3 feet of gravel on the sides and pipe drained along
the base. A top sand cushion was followed by base gravels to total 3 feet. Paved
shoulders and sideslope seeding are proposed. Thermocouple, gas sampling, and
Benkleman Beam research is proposed. The sawdust was old cedar with moisture
content averaging 250 per cent, design density of 55 pcf. Field densities were measured and averaged 44 pcf. Consolidation tests suggested 6 inches of settlement in
8 feet of sawdust under load. Compaction was achieved by vibratory smooth wheel
roller, loaded to less than capacity.
To our knowledge, this is the first time that sawdust has ever been used as
lightweight fill in a situation permanently above the water table.
Suicide Hill to Pemberton
Since some fissures appeared above the present highway in spring of 1970, the
stability of approximately 170-foot-high highway and railroad cut was investigated,
the slope angle of the lower cut is about 40 degrees and this increases to about 60
degrees in a drop adjacent to the highway. Drilling investigation has shown that
the materials are granular. The slope as a whole has a marginal factor of safety
only.
A bin retaining-wall adjacent to the railroad tracks was designed in October
1970 to prevent sliding of the upper part of the cut. The design called for 250-foot-
long, 26.67-foot-high battered wall. The wall was to be backfilled with compacted
granular materials to achieve a final slope of 40 degrees.
The preliminary design has recently been altered. The new design is considering a bin retaining-wall 30 feet high and 200 feet long which will guarantee a
better railroad and highway protection.
Horizontal Drains at McMurdo in the Columbia Valley
Here the valley sides of sedimentary materials were gradually slipping down
and displacing the highway. As an abutment, a system of long, horizontal drains
into the hillside was designed. The first two were drilled before the onslaught of
winter and these tapped a perched water table resulting in an initial flow rate of
1,500 cubic feet per day.
Rykerts Fill Near Creston
This fill was investigated to assess the possibility of modifying it to form an
earth dam for the purpose of creating a reservoir for the stocking of game fish. The
project was not without difficulties—notably maintaining highway and river bank
stability and providing a low-water loss facing for the fill. The most economic and
reliable solution involves covering the upstream side of the fill with heavy duty polyethylene sheeting protected by sand and gravel layers.
Cuisson Creek Culvert, Cariboo Highway
Location Branch originally proposed that a concrete box culvert be designed
for this location. However, the very high fills overlaying a thick layer of compressible clay will result in considerable settlements, approximately 2 inches being expected under the centre of the fill, and about 6 inches under the toe.
This differential settlement would undoubtedly result in failure of a rigid structure, and at our suggestion the design has been changed to a flexible multiple culvert.
 REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER B 79
Computer Programme for Plotting and Evaluation of Field Settlement Readings
A computer programme for plotting field settlement readings and predicting
future time-settlement relationships on the basis of these readings has been written.
Basically, the programme employs an exponential regression analysis technique
coupled with an iterative procedure to predict the ultimate settlement and the equation of the time-settlement process operating. The programme provides statistical
limits for all predicted values and calculated parameters.
This method of settlement evaluation was first employed on the Cape Horn to
Essondale project and later on Moose Lake fill. These initial calculations were done
by hand and were found to be quite tedious and time-consuming.
In addition to saving considerable time, this method will enable the Soils Engineer to give accurate predictions of time required for surcharging operations. This
will be of considerable benefit to those responsible for construction scheduling.
Pavement Evaluation
One phase of this job is the continuous checking and improving of methods of
designing and building pavements. This year we instituted improved gravel-quality
testing and specifications control methods of the aggregates used in pavements.
Fifty-four individual projects involving 392 miles were provided with evaluations
either for new designs or for strengthening procedures. They could be separated
as follows:
Region 1—28 projects, for a total of 99 miles.
Region 2—10 projects, for a total of 101 miles.
Region 3—5 projects, for a total of 64 miles.
Region A—11 projects, for a total of 128 miles.
Additionally, some 161 miles were evaluated in the four regions for predicted
contract preparation in 1971.   The use of the computer as a powerful tool for pavement design is continuing.
Since the smoothness of highways is becoming even more important to lessen
maintenance costs, two methods of achieving this were studied and refined.
A detailed study by photographic means of road-surface wear from studded
tires was commenced this year.
LABORATORY DEVELOPMENT STUDIES
The installation by a local supplier of a heated "surge" storage for hotmixed
asphaltic concrete started a study into the control and methods of storing for several
days. Development of a test for determining the behaviour of asphalt cements at
20°F below zero was also largely completed this year, with some very interesting
initial results.
Since good-quality gravel supplies are becoming more scarce each year, both
the specifications and the qualities required for gravels are being very carefully reviewed so that existing supplies can be conserved. Petrographic analysis, in which
gravel quality is predicted from study of individual rock types present as particles,
has become a standard procedure.
Stabilization of marginal quality aggregates was considered for several projects.
A priority for improvement and updating of all important acceptance testing
was decided upon with the intent that all supplies purchased by the Highways Department over a certain minimum yearly expenditure be carefully tested so that we
 B 80 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
obtain best value for the money spent. Such items as paints, traffic-control cones,
road de-icing chemicals, timber, culverts, Portland cement, etc., are being reviewed.
A study was started into the method of lining of the George Massey Tunnel
interior to improve visibility and appearance, and therefore safety. Because of the
heavy traffic usage of this facility, rapid installation is a problem to be overcome.
A field test of a trial installation is to be done shortly.
A review of bridge paint colours standardization was completed this year with
the effect that, in future, bridge paints will not only last longer but will harmonize
with the surroundings and be aesthetically pleasant.
Rock-slope Stability
Several rock-slope stability problems were studied during the past year, notably
at Hells Gate Bluffs, on the Fraser Canyon Highway near Boston Bar, and at Porteau
Bluffs, on the Squamish Highway near Britannia Beach.
Movement gauges at Hells Gate Bluffs indicate that slope movement is continuing. As a result, it has received renewed attention, and a comprehensive programme
of surface and subsurface geological mapping has been carried out. Nine diamond-
drill holes have been completed since May 1970, to determine the fracture pattern
at depth. The latest borehole was recently monitored with a borehole periscope to
determine the exact locations and orientations of the subsurface joints and faults.
The investigation has indicated that further strengthening of Hells Gate Bluffs may
require major rock excavation and additional rock bolting.
Major scaling, rock-bolting, and other maintenance of the rock slopes between
Horseshoe Bay and Britannia on the Garibaldi Highway was done during the winter
and spring of 1970. This was Project 2141. Weathering of the rock since the
highway was opened in 1955 has caused numerous rock-falls. The rock-face maintenance will increase the safety of the route. At Porteau Bluffs, the site of several
large rock-falls in recent years, an extensive programme of rock-bolting over part
of the bluffs was completed. Maintenance work was also done on existing rock-bolt
installations. A programme of structural mapping, exploratory and drain-hole
drilling, and micro-seismic rock noise-monitoring was initiated to further analyse
the slope stability and determine methods of preventing further rock-falls.
Increasing emphasis is being given to the design and construction of rock slopes.
More structural geological mapping is being done, methods to analyse the stability
of rock slopes are being developed, and rock excavation specifications are being
revised to give closer control of blasting in the light of recent technical developments.
The foundations of Blanket Creek Bridge on the Revelstoke-Shelter Bay Highway presented special geological problems. The bridge crosses a deep and precipitous mountain gorge. The arch footings are near the crests of the gorge walls and
are in a brittle, highly fractured and faulted rock formation where careful excavation
was essential to preserve both the foundation area and the stability of the walls.
The northwest arch footing required detailed investigation and careful preparation
under the supervision of a geologist, as it is underlain by a soft seam that dips toward
the gorge. Excavation to the seam would have endangered support for the abutment
up the slope, so to avoid excavation and settlement under the footing as the bridge
is built, the foundation was preloaded. This was done by prestressing it with seven
60-ton anchors installed in 60-foot-deep diamond-drill holes.
A high-scaling crew of four men has been kept busy since summer removing
loose rocks from cliffs that have been the source of dangerous rock-falls. This crew
also does special high and dangerous rock work.
 REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER B 81
Gravel Exploration
Each year the demand for gravel increases and the quantity and quality of
available deposits decrease. A major geological study of air photos has been made
of the gravel deposits on Northern Vancouver Island so that the Department may
reserve the best potential deposits. Such a procedure will assure the Department
of adequate supplies of quality aggregate for future road construction and maintenance in the area.
Other gravel investigations have included the location and proving of 300,000
cubic yards of drainage gravel for the proposed Kootenay crossing at Kikomun
Creek, the location of potential gravel deposits along the proposed Sayward to Nimpkish Lake Highway, and the location of potential gravel sources in the vicinity of
Indian Arm to aid planning of land use.
Geological interpretation of air photos plays a major role in the location of
potential gravel deposits, and the estimation of the quantity and quality of the deposit.
Increasing use is being made of air-photo geology to select the best routes for proposed highways and access roads, to make preliminary soil surveys, and to locate
potential borrow and rock-quarry sites.
Bridge Deck Resurfacing
The restoration of deteriorated bridge deck surfaces by the application of a
thin concrete overlay was continued. Seven bridge decks were resurfaced during
1970, four in Region 4 and three in Region 2, totalling 27,908 square feet of decking
resurfaced. Deterioration on one bridge in Region 4 was so extensive it was necessary to replace portions of deck, panels, curbs, and posts. There are 350 concrete
bridges in the Province, and deterioration of the decks from de-icing salt and weather
is fairly rapid, requiring a constant maintenance programme.
Coring resurfaced bridge decks was carried out to determine the bond strength
of concrete overlays. A total of 135 cores was taken from 14 bridge decks. The
average bond strength as determined from these cores was 116 psi, which is a very
good value.
A series of tests on accelerated curing of concrete test specimens was carried
out to determine the strength relationship of 24-hour accelerated-cured specimens
to 28-day standard-cured specimens. This may allow prediction of one month
strength values from strength tests taken after 24 hours.
To improve quality control of concrete used by the Department, the section of
the general specifications pertaining to concrete materials, mixing of concrete and
the placing and curing of concrete, were revised.
In order for concrete inspectors from this Branch to have a better understanding of concrete technology, a four-day course in the proportioning of concrete mixes
was organized and given to the Senior Laboratory Technicians by the Vancouver
Regional Laboratory. This will be provided to other interested Highway Branches
in the coming year.
Examinations
Branch engineering personnel wrote annual proficiency examinations. For
the first time these Departmental examinations were common to the Paving, Construction, Maintenance, and Geotechnical and Materials Branches. It is hoped
that this approach will make engineering personnel more versatile in each Branch
and more useful to all Branches. Most engineering personnel attended at least one
of four Departmental courses this spring.

HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Miscellaneous
For a recent seminar for Bridge Construction Project Supervisors, an engineer
from our Branch prepared and delivered a talk on "Pile Driving Behaviour in Various Soils."
Considerable time and effort were spent on reviewing several sections of the
General Specifications to aid the Department Specification Committee in updating
this important reference.

 REPORT OF GENERAL MANAGER OF FERRIES B 83
REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER, BRITISH
COLUMBIA FERRIES DIVISION
Growth-pattern predictions for 1970 on all routes met expectations, with
tremendous summer surges, particularly on Gulf Island routes. The successful
operation of the two stretched ships, MV Queen of Esquimalt and MV Queen of
Victoria, kept overloads to a minimum, and shore installations nearing completion
proved effective for the handling of these larger capacities.
Supplementary ships were again provided on the Swartz Bay-Gulf Island-
Tsawwassen crossing and the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale run. The MV Langdale
Queen provided extra service during spring and summer schedule as well as holiday
periods. The Jervis Inlet crossing also had summer supplementary service five days
a week. It is anticipated that extra frequency of scheduling for these supplementary
vessels will be required for the 1971 summer season.
The MV Island Princess serving Kelsey Bay, Beaver Cove, Alert Bay, and
Sointula continues to operate to capacity at all times and, with the advent of new
development for this area, will increase the demand on this service. Plans are well
advanced on methods to accommodate this growth by catamarizing the ship and
remodelling the shore installations. The first phase of work on the MV Island
Princess conversion started at Burrard Drydock in February and, when completed
in May 1971, will provide British Columbia Ferries with the only catamarized commercially operated ship serving the West Coast. To achieve the structural change,
it will be necessary to remove all the superstructure of the vessel down to the main
deck and cut the hull in four places. A section 55 feet in length will then be
added, which will then increase her length to 186 feet 6 inches from 131 feet 3
inches.   After all this work has been completed, the new dimensions will be
Length over all, 186 feet 6 inches.
Beam, 57 feet.
Depth, 13 feet 6 inches.
Loaded full, 731 tons.
Car capacity, 49.
Structural changes to Alert Bay and Sointula docking facilities will provide a roll on,
roll off, vehicle service to both of these ports, and it is anticipated that these facilities will be completed in time for the MV Island Princess' return.
The MV Queen of Prince Rupert service to the north showed an increase in
recreational vehicles. There was, however, a decrease in commercial traffic and
tour operators. There will be a continuing programme of promotion for this route,
particularly in the Prairie provinces. The Prince Rupert dock received structural
changes enabling it to accommodate the needs of both the MV Queen of Prince
Rupert traffic and the Alaska Ferry operation.
The Ferries Division operates 23 ships on 12 different routes to 25 ports of
call, traversing some 931,366 miles per annum.

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
The district was enlarged in area by the transfer of the major portion of the
Gulf Islands from the Nanaimo District. During the year the approval of subdivisions in the Gulf Island area was handed over to the Capital Regional District. The
number of subdivision and permit applications continued at a high level.
Maintenance—A major brushing programme was undertaken on many roads
under the Winter Assistance Programme.
The complete sign system was replaced on the Gulf Islands to conform with the
Departmental standards.
Bituminous surfacing—A small programme of roadmix surfacing was undertaken, with some work being done in each foreman's area. A sealcoating programme
was done in the Langford-Colwood area to rejuvenate some sealcoats done in
previous years.
Reconstruction—Work continued on the upgrading of the Sooke Road from
Cooper's Cove for 5 miles east. The moving of utility poles and the accommodation
of large traffic flows contributed to slow but steady progress. The sharp corner at
the 17 Mile House was eliminated by construction of a through rock cut on an
improved alignment.
The East Shawnigan Lake road was reconstructed and roadmix surfaced with
as little effect as possible outside the existing right-of-way.
Snow removal—Only three major snow-storms were experienced during the
winter, no road closures were experienced. Temperature averages were lower than
normal, with the result that many days of freezing temperatures were experienced,
consequently large quantities of sand and salt were used to keep the road surfaces
free of ice.
Bridges
Major repairs were carried out on the deck system of the Millstream Bridge
near Mill Bay. The Canal Bridge between North and South Pender Islands had the
main log span replaced with steel stringers to allow full legal truck-loads. A new
replacement bridge was constructed over Minute Creek on the West Coast Road.
The Angus Road Bridge was reconstructed and the abutments were constructed of
rock-filled gabions.
Buildings
The four-bay equipment shed was completed in the Sooke yard.
 B 88 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Nanaimo District
Roads
A major paving programme was carried out in the Greater Nanaimo area
covering the main feeder roads and major residential streets. Yellow edge lines, as
walkways, were provided in the high-volume pedestrian areas.
The Island Highway in the vicinity of Deep Bay was completely reshaped for a
distance of 3 miles, the shoulders being widened and gravelled. Similar work was
carried out on the British Columbia Highway 1 north of the Chemainus River Bridge
for a distance of 2 miles.
Crushed gravel was applied to a 6-mile section of the Alberni-Tofino Highway
near the switchbacks. No-post guard-rail was installed on a portion of the Alberni-
Parksville Highway at Cameron Lake.
Bridges
The Clem Clem Alitz Bridge, 183 feet in length, was renewed to allow truck
use to a large sawmill started in the Koksilah area. A number of bridges on the
Alberni-Tofino Highway were completely rebuilt.
Ferries
Normal service was maintained on the Thetis Island and Gabriola Island
ferry runs.
Buildings
A residence for the road-maintenance foreman was constructed at the Ucluelet yard.
Improvements were carried out to the stockroom at Nanaimo yard.
Courtenay District
Roads
Normal road conditions existed during the summer, but heavy precipitation and
above-normal snowfall caused adverse road conditions during the winter. Continual freezing and thawing cycles caused excessive pavement damage.
Snowfall varied from 127 inches in Courtenay to 389 inches at Forbidden
Plateau Ski Resort.
Day Labour—
North Area:
(1) Jeune Landing access—At the Jeune Landing end, 2.2 miles of new road
were constructed to eliminate sharing the existing road with logging-trucks.
Another 2.3 miles of road were widened to sufficient width that dual use
with logging-trucks is possible. Approximately half the road on Jeune
Landing end is now ready for final gravel; of the remaining half, a few
sections have been widened.
(2) Winter Harbour—Road access to Federal wharf was completed and gravelled. A short extension, giving access to fish-packing firms, was partly
completed.
(3) Coal Harbour Road—Minor improvements were continued. Utah Mine
construction caused considerable increase in traffic on this road.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B 89
Courtenay, Campbell River Area:
Side roads were oiled. Considerable ditching and gravelling of unpaved roads
were carried out. Work force concentrated on eliminating drainage problems that have been a source of complaints. A section of Ryan Road, 3.5
miles long, was completed. This serves as a short route from Courtenay
to the Canadian Forces Base and also to the ferry serving the Powell
River area.
Work on Forbidden Plateau road was completed, giving a much improved
standard of road serving this recreation area.
The last section of Highway 28, Campbell River to Gold River, was widened
and subsequently paved.
On Hornby Island, 2 miles of main road, starting at the ferry landing, were
upgraded and prepared for paving.
Bridges
Deck systems were replaced on the following bridges: Sachts Bridge (Sayward
Valley); Browns River Bridge (Forbidden Plateau Road); Carwithin, Rennison
(Courtenay area); Keil; and two Theimer bridges (Port Hardy, Port McNeill area).
Painting of bridges was completed on five bridges in the area between Sayward
Valley and Courtenay.
Ferries
The following ferries operated throughout the year: Sointula Queen (Sointula-
Alert Bay-Port McNeill), Quadra Queen (Campbell River-Quadra Island), Cortes
Queen (Quadra Island-Cortes Island), Comox Queen (Little River-Westbank),
and Catheryn Graham (Buckley Bay-Denman Island). Subsidized ferry serviced
Hornby Island from Denman Island.
Additional vessels were added to Little River-Westbank and Buckley Bay-
Denman Island during summer months.
Repairs to ferry landings were carried out as required. Denman Ferry required
float repairs and replacement of piles.
Buildings
Port Hardy—A building for crew assembly room and foreman office was partially constructed and is to be finished in the new year.
Sayward—An addition was added to our equipment shed to accommodate toilet
facilities and foreman office.
North Vancouver District
Roads
Construction—Many small day-labour projects were completed in the Powell
River, Pender Harbour, Gibsons, Bowen Island and Pemberton areas.
A major scaling and rock-stabilization programme has been carried out on
Highway 99 between Horseshoe Bay and Britannia.
Paving—Roadmix pavement was laid on 5Vi miles at Davis Bay and Bowen
Island areas.
Snow removal—All roads were kept open at all times, with very little difficulty
being experienced by the travelling public.
 B 90
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Bridges
The North Arm Bridge, on the Pemberton Portage Road between Pemberton
and Mount Currie, was replaced by culverts.
Major repairs were undertaken on Mamquam Bridge and a second Bailey
bridge was erected on Strachan 2 for two-way traffic.
The approaches to the Lois River Bridge on Highway 101, Powell River, were
completed.
Buildings
The enlarging of the North Vancouver shop by adding two bays was completed;
also six truck bays were added to the equipment shed, with foreman's offices, washroom, and lunchroom facilities included.
The warehouse at Fourth Avenue near University Endowment Lands was
demolished and removed.
New Westminster District
Roads
Maintenance—The highways throughout the district were maintained to the
standard required to meet today's heavy traffic volumes. Extensive brush clearing
was undertaken on all major arterials. Chemical spraying for brush control has been
all but eliminated; however, some areas were treated with dry chemicals. Soil steri-
lant was applied around signposts, guard-rails, and delineator posts, as well as on the
shoulders of Highways 401 and 499.
Considerable work was done on sign maintenance, replacing worn signs and
painting of posts. Also, many of the larger directional signs were replaced on both
British Columbia Highway 401 and Vancouver-Blaine Freeway 499.
A beautification programme was undertaken on British Columbia Highway
401, involving the planting of several thousand daffodil bulbs and many Scotch
pine trees.
Construction—Work continued on the four-laning of Lougheed Highway between Cape Horn and Pitt River Road at Riverview Hospital. The retaining-walls
in front of the hospital were completed, the surcharge, which had been standing for
several months, was lifted, and the grade prepared for paving on the two additional
lanes north of the present road.
Following paving of the new lanes, the old road is to be closed and surcharged
to stabilize the grade, which has been subject to considerable settlement over
the years.
Another large day-labour project was started in the fall on Carvolth Road in
the Municipality of Langley and City of Langley. This project involves reconstruction of approximately 4 miles of road between British Columbia Highway 401 and
Fraser Highway.
District forces completed work not included in the contract for the Tsawwassen
railway overhead and the Roberts Bank access road in the Municipality of Delta.
This work involved concreting the abutment slopes under the overpass structure,
removal of the Tsawwassen Highway detour road, and extension of the Roberts
Bank access road from the end of the contract to Arthur Drive, a distance of about
1,200 feet.
Left-turn channelization, traffic signals, and lighting were installed on the
Ladner-Langley Highway at 152nd Street (Johnston Road) and on Scott Road at
Old Yale Road in the Municipality of Surrey.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 91
Signals and lighting installations, with minor intersection improvements, were
completed at Hastings Street and Holdom Avenue in the Municipality of Burnaby,
and at the intersection of the eastbound ramp from Vancouver-Blaine Freeway and
Ladner-Langley Highway in the Municipality of Delta.
Work also was in progress, but not completed, at the intersections of Fraser
Highway and 160th Street in the Municipality of Surrey, and Lougheed Highway
and Brighton Avenue in the Municipality of Burnaby.
Snow removal—Heavy snowfalls were experienced this winter. Total snowfall
measurements (unofficial) exceeded 90 inches in most parts of the district. The
usual difficulties with heavy traffic, which tend to hamper removal operations, were
experienced.  Traffic was kept moving with no serious problems or delays.
Street lighting and flashing beacons were installed at the intersection of Ladner-
Langley Highway and 192nd Street, and at the intersection of Pacific Highway and
16th Avenue in Surrey. A similar installation, with some minor intersection improvements, got under way, but not completed, at the intersection of Fraser Highway
and 184th Street in Surrey.
Construction of subdivision roads in the Coombes area north of Belcarra was
completed early in the year to a gravel standard.
Bridges
A major fire in June destroyed about 900 feet of the north approach trestle of
the Twigg Island Bridge. Much of the piling was salvaged, but the upper structure
required complete renewal.
Apart from redecking of the Salmon River Bridge on Pacific Highway and
completion of the redecking of the Albion ferry-landing, routine maintenance was
carried out on all structures.
The district bridge crew undertook some Bailey bridge work for the North
Vancouver District and assisted the Chilliwack District bridge crew in the reconstruction of the Chehalis River Bridge Howe truss.
Ferries
Albion Ferry and Barnston Island Ferry maintained busy schedules throughout
the year.
Chilliwack District
Roads
Maintenance—Highways were maintained to a good standard. Soil sterilant
was applied to gravel shoulders of main roads, and brushkill applied where necessary. Mowers operated throughout the growing season. A daily Utter and garbage
pick-up covered main highways throughout the tourist season, and extensive brushing
was carried on throughout the district.
Construction—The intersection of Chilliwack Lake and Vedder Roads was
reconstructed, with a luminaire and flashing lights installed. Grade revision and
realignment to Slesse and O'Byrne Roads were nearly completed. Two miles of
Stave Lake Road were cleared and widened.
Bituminous surfacing—Approximately 1.5 miles of Lougheed Highway were
recapped. An extensive patching programme was carried out, with special attention
being given to trunk and main highways.
 B 92 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Snow removal—Considerable snowfall was experienced throughout the district.
Heavy drifting and extremely poor visibility resulted in sections of British Columbia
Highways 401 and 1 being closed during the night on two occasions. During times
of poor visibility, the travelling public was formed into convoys and escorted across
the Sumas Prairie section of Highway 401 by Department vehicles.
Bridges
Bouchier Bridge, a 35-foot pile-trestle bridge, was reconstructed over Bouchier
Creek. Hawkins Bridge was reconstructed and shortened to 18 feet in length. The
CPR bridge over the Fraser River at Mission had one span heavily damaged by fire,
and was closed to highway and rail traffic for approximately 10 days. A temporary
passenger-ferry service ran for the duration of the bridge closure. Popkum Bridge
was replaced with a culvert and fill.
Buildings
A new four-bay equipment shed was constructed at the Deroche gravel pit, and
the yard area fenced. A new heating system was installed in the mechanical shop at
Mission.   A new four-bay equipment shed was erected in the Rosedale Yard.
Bridge Maintenance
Maintenance
Routine maintenance was carried out on roads and bridges consistent with the
high volumes of traffic.   Grounds maintenance was carried out on all facilities.
Maintenance and repair were carried out for British Columbia Ferries Division on docks, wharves, and vehicles, as well as for vehicles of the Department of
Public Works.
Construction
Minor improvements were made to several intersections and pavement overlays
carried out on short sections of Highways 401 and 499. A project is under way
replacing cover plates on floor beams of First Narrows Bridge.
Bridge Painting
Cleaning and painting, wholly or in part, was carried out on First Narrows,
Second Narrows, Port Mann, Duncan, Nanaimo River, and Harrison River Bridges.
REGION 2
(R. G. White, Regional Highway Engineer, Kamloops)
Kamloops, Salmon Arm, McBride, Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton,
Merritt, Lillooet, and Williams Lake Highway Districts
Kamloops District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads, with
emphasis on minor betterments. The winter proved to be long and taxed the district resources to the limit.   Some areas in the district received twice the average
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 93
snowfall and an extraordinary 0.25 inch of rain during the night of January 6/7,
followed by a week of below-zero weather, produced many problems.
Construction—New construction was completed during the year on the La
Farge Road (access from British Columbia Highway 1 to La Farge Bridge). Reconstruction was completed on 7.25 miles of country roads. Improvements by
widening and gravelling were done on 15.6 miles of road.
Bridges
Two bridges were eliminated during the year, namely Homestake and Leonie
Creek.
Fishtrap Bridge, a 30-foot log stringer span, and Grouse Creek Bridge, a 27-
foot log stringer span, were reconstructed.
Major repairs were carried out on Old Kamloops East Bridge, with complete
replacement of all stringers, cross-ties, running-deck, sidewalk, fences, and paint.
Repairs were made to the following bridges: Birch Island, Fadear Creek, Lost
Creek, Boulder Creek, Chuck Creek, New Kamloops East, and Savona.
boat.
Ferries
The Blackpool Ferry service was discontinued.
The other ferries were inspected and repaired as follows:
McLure—Completely rebuilt; new bridle line, walkway to motor, repair life-
Little Fort—New bridle line, walkway to motor windline sheaves and lifeboat.
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance—Weed control by spraying and mowing was again quite effective.
Slashing of brush along the main thoroughfares was carried out by special crews.
The use of oil for dust control was again applied and some calcium chloride was
used for the same purpose in more isolated areas. There were several miles of
fence installed along Schedule 10 Highways and several miles of ditching were
completed with the use of the regional Hy-Hoe.
Construction—Reconstruction, including rock work, fencing, and the placing
of pit-run gravel was completed on 4.6 miles of road, which is broken down as
follows: Squilax to Anglemont, 0.5 miles; Skimiken, 0.7 miles; Sunnybrae to Canoe
Point, 1.6 miles; Little Shuswap Lake, 1.0 miles; Tappen Valley, 0.5 miles; Davidson, 0.3 miles.
Snow removal—The 1970/71 winter came early and the quantities of chemicals and sand that were used were much greater. A two-shift maintenance programme was implemented, and the main and side roads were kept in good driving
condition.
Bridges
Five bridges—Falkland, Moore, Nightingale, Old Mill, and Pringle—were
completely reconstructed.   Maintenance was carried out on 22 other bridges.
McBride District
Most day-labour work in the McBride District was of a relatively minor nature.
New construction consisted of 0.5 mile of Yellowhead frontage road and part of
 B 94
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Mount Robson Viewpoint Road. In addition, 0.1 mile of road was built near
Valemount for the Lands Branch.
Reconstruction included 0.4 mile of McBride East Road, 0.25 mile of Blue
River Dairy Road, and 0.4 mile of Morgan Road. The parking-lot at Mount
Robson was completed and the highway widened in this area to allow for right- and
left-turn slots.
The approaches to all the completed bridges along Yellowhead South Highway
were paved with patchmix material.
An additional 7 miles of Yellowhead Highway between McBride and Tete
Jaune were pulvimixed. The remaining 12-mile gravel section was treated with
calcium chloride during the summer.
Minor clearing was done on Cranberry Lake Road, and Morgan Road right-
of-way was cleared and partially fenced.
The ditches along Yellowhead South Highway between McMurphy and Avola
were cleaned in preparation for the paving of this section. A streambed near Wire
Cache gravel pit was cleaned out when the stream threatened to flood the highway.
In June a flash flood in Bevier Creek covered about one-quarter mile of
Mountain View Road up to 7 feet deep with mud, stones, and trees. The quantity
of debris on the road was estimated at 10,000 yards and the road was blocked
completely for two days. In the same month Baker Creek, about 16 miles east of
McBride, flooded and scoured out one mudsill on the Baker Creek Bridge. Several
loads of coarse gravel were required to fill the hole, and riprap material was placed
along the upstream side of the bridge to deflect the current back to the centre of
the streambed.
A major fill-failure was corrected west of McBride with the placing of a large
berm 10 feet high and extending 100 feet out from the centreline of the highway.
A perforated, corrugated-metal pipe was placed the full length of the berm below
the highway shoulder and nine horizontal drains were installed. In addition, the
ditch on the other side of this section was cleaned out and deepened to provide
better drainage.
Another slide area on Raush Valley Road was partially remedied by removing
about 7 feet of blue clay beneath the roadbed.
Bridge 6848 on Morgan Road was rebuilt on the original site; 12 by 12-inch
timbers laid side by side formed both stringers and decking. Two old Bailey detour
bridges at Moonbeam were dismantled and the components used to build two
bridges over the two channels of Horse Creek on the Yellowhead Highway.
Another Bailey bridge was built over Small River. In both cases the road was
relocated in order to eliminate sharp curves, and the Bailey spans replaced old King
truss structures.
The Winter Assistance crews, consisting of up to 15 men, slashed approximately
27 miles of right-of-way along the Yellowhead Highway. They then were assigned
to making fence-posts for the forthcoming fencing projects along the Yellowhead
and Yellowhead South Highways.
Sand was hauled into the Blue River yard from the Murtle Lake gravel pit.
It will be screened this summer for use next winter.
Vernon District
Roads
Maintenance—With a decrease in day-labour projects this year, the maintenance crews placed emphasis on general minor improvements throughout the district.
Crews in the Vernon area, assisted by the Vernon Irrigation District forces, helped
 REGIONAL REPORTS B 95
to clean up and restore ditches and right-of-way behind the enormous water-
distribution system installed along almost every road in the area.
The district engineering crew supervised the relocation and construction of the
new Otter Lake Crossroad intersection on Highway 97a (Arterial 271r), instituted
by the new Crown Zellerbach plywood plant in the Municipality of Spallumcheen.
District forces also assisted in a joint intersection project at Hill Drive and Highway
6 (Arterial 103r) within the Municipality of Coldstream to provide access to the
recently constructed Consumers Glass Plant, located 9 miles east of Vernon.
The winter labour incentive programme proved very successful, providing right-
of-way improvement on a number of main and minor roads.
Subdivision activity in the North Okanagan area has been greatly increased.
Recreational-type subdivisions on Okanagan and Mabel Lake account for a great
percentage of the subdivisions. The Department processed 169 tentative and 215
final submissions. One tentative submission on the west side of Okanagan Lake
consisted of an over-all plan of 5,300 recreational lots. This activity compared with
116 tentative and 59 finals in 1966.
The no-post guard-rail plant operated by the district again produced 2,340 feet
of guard-rail and 41 bull-nose sections to supply the needs of five maintenance
districts in Region 2. Two hundred and thirteen Department of Highways terrazzo-
finished concrete picnic tables were completed for the districts throughout the Province. In addition, 30 toilets using the same manufacturing process as the picnic
tables were produced using terrazzo and sand-blasted concrete finish with a fibreglass
roof for quick field assembly. An "experimental model" rest area information
shelter, using sand-blasted precast-concrete posts and a single-section fibreglass roof,
were produced. These are to be used at various roadside rest stops throughout the
Province.
Construction and paving—A total of 2.12 miles on Scott Road and Barkley
Road were constructed and gravelled by district forces. One mile of Deep Creek
Road was reconstructed and gravelled. An additional 10 miles of minor district
roads were improved and gravelled. On the Vernon-Slocan Highway in the Monashee Pass area, 5.3 miles of base strengthening and recap paving were completed.
A hotmix recap paving contract supervised by the district was successfully completed
on a 1-mile section of Highway 97a at Larkin. Two miles of repaving were completed on the Enderby-Mabel Lake Road and 1.9 miles of roadmix paving were
completed on the Lumby-Mabel Lake Road. A special flushcoat surface stabilization was received on 0.6 mile of the Coral Beach Road.
Snow removal—Winter maintenance requirements were heavier than normal
and the demand for chemical control was greatly increased. Above-average snowfall was experienced in the Monashee Pass and Silver Star Park. Snowfall in both
areas exceeded 240 inches.
Bridges
Spring run-off was well below normal. The district bridge crew carried out
considerable minor maintenance to all spans throughout the area.
Reconstruction of the Sugar Lake Bridge at Sugar Lake to a H25-S16 design
commenced last year and was successfully completed, allowing access to a huge
timber reserve north and west of Sugar Lake.
Work progressed on the new Cherry Creek Bridge on the Sugar Lake Road.
The steel contract was completed and preparations are now in hand to complete a
concrete deck system.  The bridge should be open for traffic this summer.
Ferry Creek, Anderson, and Stickle Bridges, all minor pile trestles, were reconstructed by district forces.
 B 96
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Canal Bridge over the Vernon Irrigation District Canal on the Whitevale Road
was replaced by a small culvert and fill. This was facilitated by the abandonment
of Grey Canal, used for 50 years and now replaced by a pressurized system being
installed under the ARDA programme. A 50-inch-diameter pipe-line carries the
flow at this point. Vernon Irrigation District is one of the largest independent irrigation systems in western North America.
Kelowna District
Roads
Maintenance—Maintenance was again increased on main and side roads, with
emphasis on ditching, signing, patching, and safety features.
Reconstruction—One mile of Hollywood Road was rebuilt and paved to improve service to the rapidly growing Rutland area.
One mile of Jim Bailey Road was relaid to improve access to the new Hiram
Walker Distillery and other industries at Winfield.
Paving—One mile of Hollywood Road was repaved.
Snow removal—An above-average snowfall was recorded, requiring continuous
snow-removal operations.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained in satisfactory condition. There were no new
structures built.
Okanagan Highway at Summerland.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B 97
Penticton District
Roads
Maintenance—Men and equipment at the disposal of this district were mainly
oriented toward maintenance activities this year.
During the summer season, emphasis was placed on brushing rights-of-way,
weed control, and drainage improvement. Numerous side roads were upgraded by
minor reconstruction and gravelling. Dust layer was applied to 45 miles of orchard
roads to protect fruit crops.
Winter snowfalls started early and generally the whole winter was characterized
by a succession of heavy snowfalls at or near the freezing temperature. This condition demanded exceptional efforts by crews to combat the heavy snows and slippery
driving conditions. More than double the usual amount of road chemicals were
used in the district this year. Total snowfall at Allison Pass on the Hope-Princeton
Highway amounted to 450 inches, this included a 50-inch snowfall in three days.
Due to slippery conditions on the Hope-Princeton Highway, there were numerous
traffic tie-ups and on one occasion a short closure was necessary. Winter maintenance was carried on in the district on a seven-day-per-week double-shift basis, and,
through the superior efforts of the crews, inconvenience to the public was minimized.
Construction and reconstruction—Gravelling work on 6.4 miles of truck-lanes
on the Hope-Princeton Highway was continued. Gravelling was also completed on
approximately 5 miles of reconstructed side roads. Otherwise, reconstruction was
limited to preparation of roads for asphalt surfacing.
Surfacing—After reconstruction, 11.2 miles of local roads were paved with
blademixed asphalt. The programme of sand-sealing of older pavements was continued and 12.4 miles were completed.
Bridges
Redecking and reconstruction of bridges were carried out to maintain a good
standard for crossings. A few bridges were replaced, where practical, by corrugated-
metal pipe structures.
Okanagan Flood Control
Stream-flow and lake-level data were collected on the Okanagan River, and
Okanagan, Skaha, Tuc-Ul-Nuit, and Osoyoos Lakes respectively.
Inflow into Okanagan Lake was very low, and was, therefore, reflected in the
discharge from Okanagan Lake. Sufficient water was discharged to supply minimum
downstream-user needs.
Normal channel and dyke maintenance was performed, with concentration on
weed control and refencing. A total of 12 miles of fence was rebuilt. Also, the
previously started reconstruction of the eroded channel between Okanagan and
Skaha Lakes was continued.
Merritt District
Roads
Maintenance—Extensive right-of-way clearing and landscaping were carried
out between Hope and Yale on British Columbia Highway 1 and is now ready for
seeding.
The use of soil sterilant is continued in lieu of weed spray.
A major slide occurred at Mile 21 (Dot Slide) on the Spences Bridge-Merritt
Highway on April 26, 1970.   Traffic was rerouted over old road.

HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
The Fraser Canyon was closed from 3 a.m., January 15, 1971, to 3.30 p.m.,
January 16, 1971, due to snow slides and ice conditions.
Snowfall throughout the district was 119 per cent more than 1969/70 and
created many additional problems with fluctuating temperatures. Abrasive and
chemical use was double last winter.
Under the Winter Assistance Programme we were able to achieve much in the
way of brushing existing right-of-way and new right-of-way on the Highland Valley
Road.
Regional pulvimix crews paved 8 miles of the Mamette Lake Road.
Bridges
Three new timber structures were constructed, two minor bridges were reconstructed, and repairs were carried out on 14 other structures. Major repairs were
made to Drynoch Overhead west.
Ferries
New sheaves were installed on North Bend Ferry. One haulback cable and
other minor repairs were carried out on North Bend Ferry and Lytton Ferry.
Major repairs were carried out on the Lytton ferry ramps.
Princeton-Kamloops Highway at Nicola Lake.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B 99
Lillooet District
Roads
Maintenance—Clinton area crews were kept busy placing heavy base material
and a levelling gravel course on both the Gang Ranch and North Bonaparte roads.
Ditching and slide-prevention maintenance were carried out by the Gold Bridge
crews in the Bralorne-Gun Lake areas. Lillooet crews patched approximately 2
miles of pavement, along with brush and tree removal work on the Fountain Valley
road, the latter being tied in with a winter works programme. The Loon Lake road
was regravelled and subgrade widened by the Ashcroft crew. Routine maintenance
kept all roads in good average condition throughout the district.
Construction and surfacing—One mile of new road was completed on the
south Green Lake subdivision road, which serves approximately 200 leased lots.
Five miles of Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway were reconstructed with crush laid
preparatory to paving. Back Valley Road, east of Cache Creek, was rebuilt with
three of five bridges thereon being replaced by culverts. Twelve miles of the Big
Bar Lake road were cleared of brush preparatory to rebuilding. Ten miles of the
Cariboo Highway were fenced as a stock-control measure. Two miles of the North
Bonaparte road were rebuilt, further adding to the improvement of roads in this
tourist and resort area. Two miles of the Clinton-Kelly Lake road were rebuilt to
help accommodate the concentrate-hauling trucks from the copper mines in Highland Valley, which now haul to a Pacific Great Eastern Railway siding on the above
road. Sections of the Big Bar ferry road were widened and straightened by the
Clinton crew.
Snow removal—Heavier than usual snowfall occurred in the district, with a late
spring being recorded. Temperatures remained average throughout this time, however. The Bridge River road was closed for about a week after a mild spell, approximately 40 slides having to be cleared, some of which were 200 feet in length, with
boulders and trees adding to the mass. A one-day school bus closure was necessitated by icing conditions. Other than the above trouble, all roads were maintained
in good winter condition.
Bridges
Two short-span bridges were rebuilt on the Back Valley Road, three more
being replaced by culverts. Creosote piling was driven for the Jackson Bridge on
the Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway; deck repairs were also made to this bridge at
the same time.
The 300-feet-long suspension bridge over the Fraser River, on the Gang Ranch
road, required chord replacement, along with other truss and deck repairs. Other
bridges in the Lillooet District were kept in a good state of repair by the bridge crew.
Repainting of the steel and concrete bridges over the Bonaparte River was
carried out by the regional bridge crew.
Ferries
The reaction ferry at Big Bar was in service through the summer and fall
months, with the cage on the cable handling the limited winter traffic. During the
winter months the ferry is beached above the high-water mark, at which time the
most important maintenance and painting are carried out.
 B 100 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Williams Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—This was rather a normal year for our maintenance forces, with
regular maintenance being performed rather than extraordinary or emergency situations. Subdivision development in the 100 Mile and Williams Lake areas continued
at a rapid pace, resulting in 50 miles of subdivision roads being added to the inventory. Construction of the 15-mile section of the Likely-Keithley Road was completed with the co-operation of the local logging firms.
Winter maintenance conditions were near normal, although frequent freezing
rain situations during cold weather necessitated heavy salt application on main
highways.
A new maintenance establishment was completed at Williams Lake.
Construction—A total of 17.6 miles of side roads was improved by reconstruction, while 63 miles of minor and major roads were gravelled.
Paving—A short 1.2-mile section of roadmix pavement was completed at
Alexis Creek, and 4.7 miles of pulvimix were laid on the Horsefly-Likely Junction
near 150 Mile House.
Bridges
Several small bridges were replaced during the year, these being McNeil, Duck,
Keithley, Shertenlib, King, Jessica Lake, Ann, and Mosley. The following bridges
were completely redecked: McClinchey, Big Creek 1, Brown, and Williams Creek.
REGION 3
(J. W. Nelson, Regional Highway Engineer, Nelson)
Nelson, Rossland, Grand Forks, New Denver, Cranbrook, Fernie, Golden,
and Revelstoke Highway Districts
Nelson District
Roads
Snowfall in the winter of 1969/70 was light and spring thaw conditions normal.
As a result, little or no flood damage was experienced in the district and road construction and improvement were able to proceed early. Approximately 50 miles of
side road were treated with bunker B or medium curing asphalt as a dust-control
measure. Weed and brush spraying of selected areas was carried out in the spring,
and some sections of shoulder treated with Simazine in the fall.
During the year, a start was made on the provision of roadside rest areas at
Kidd Creek, Bonnington, Kuskanook, and Balfour. Several water fountains were
erected on the Salmo-Creston Highway. Signing, grading, and pavement patching
were carried out as required, and in late summer and fall winter sand was screened
and stockpiled.
Reconstruction of the Creston to Arrow Creek section of British Columbia
Highway 3 continued, with the grading being completed on the total section, 4.6
miles. Of this, 3.1 miles were gravelled, and later pulvimixed by Headquarters
crews. The programme of reconstruction of the Sanca Creek to Boswell section of
the same highway also continued, with 2 miles being pulvimixed during the summer
of 1970, and heavy rock work continuing throughout the winter of 1970/71.   Pit-
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  101
run and crushed gravel were applied to 2.6 miles of reconstruction on the Riondel
Road, preparatory to paving. On the Ymir to Salmo section of the Nelson-Nelway
Highway the shoulders were widened for 5 miles to provide a standard width surface.
Seven miles of secondary road were improved by ditching and slashing, and
another 9 miles reconstructed and gravelled, of which 5Vi miles were roadmixed.
A lift of plantmix pavement was laid on 1 mile of Highway 3 near Taghum.
Numerous freeze-thaw cycles during the winter caused extensive pavement damage,
and a major patching programme was undertaken in March.
Snow removal—Winter came early and stayed late. Record snowfalls were
experienced at some points, notably the Salmo to Creston section, where over 800
inches fell. Costs were high throughout the district, with extraordinary amounts
of salt and sand being used. Seven-day double shifts were instituted for the winter,
and road conditions were generally good. A total of 53 slides occurred on the
Salmo to Creston section over the winter, all but one of which caused closures of
less than two hours.   The exception was a 15-hour closure, March 10, 1971.
Bridges
In addition to general maintenance of bridges, the following work was carried
out:
Sitkum Creek—The existing log stringer span was replaced by a 40-foot steel
stringer span on concrete abutments.
Erie Overpass—The deteriorated asphalt deck was removed, stringers secured
with holddowns, and material purchased for redecking with plywood and
asphalt plank.
Goat Creek—The substructure was completely renewed, using treated timber.
Bailey bridge towers were erected as falsework and proved very efficient.
Duck Creek—Five small, log stringer bridges were eliminated, three by 108-
inch structural steel-plate pipes, and two by rechannelling the creek.
Woolgar—A 99-foot, glulam and trestle structure on concrete abutments was
completed over Crawford Creek during the year.
Gander Creek—A 24-foot log stringer bridge was constructed on a new bypass
road in Krestova.
Goose Creek—A 70-foot log stringer bridge (three spans) was built on the
above-noted bypass.
Ferries
The Kootenay Lake Ferry, Glade Ferry, and Harrop-Longbeach Ferry
operated throughout the year. The West Creston Ferry was in service April 15
to October 31.
During June, July, and August, two ferries were operating on Kootenay Lake.
Summer traffic is increasing each year and, at times, the two boats could not handle
all vehicles at peak travel periods. New dolphins were driven at the Balfour berth.
New aprons, concrete ramps, and anchor piles were installed at the Glade ferry
terminal.
Buildings
A new 90 by 40-foot metal equipment shed, with new oil house and power
house, was completed at Kootenay Pass. An existing 40 by 30-foot metal building
was moved to Creston and set up in the yard for storage of Bailey parts. Wiring in
the Creston, Salmo, and Nelson shops was inspected and considerable rewiring
carried out to bring the buildings up to standard.
 b 102 highways report, 1970/71
Rossland District
Roads
A diversified summer maintenance programme got under way early in the year
and continued through to the winter months.
Special emphasis on drainage problems kept a number of employees busy
throughout the maintenance period. Culverts were located, cleaned, and marked.
Old culverts were replaced and new ones installed in many instances. Several catch
basins were also installed in built-up areas.
Traffic islands were constructed at four major intersections, traffic lanes painted,
and all pertinent signing completed.
Special attention was given to sign maintenance. Adjustable metal sign posts
were erected in our high snowfall areas. Preliminary results indicate a fair degree
of success and it is planned to extend the experiment this coming year.
Sweeping operations resulted in so many complaints, as we cleaned up winter
sand and followed graders shouldering, that we were forced to discontinue them.
A much cleaner and safer method of dirt and sand removal was instituted by placing
a high-pressure pump on our water truck and installing three front-mounted nozzles.
This method proved quick, complaint free, and effective.
A heavier-than-average snowfall spread out over many months necessitated the
use of large quantities of salt and sand.
Bridges
Blueberry Bridge received new ties, decking and handrails. Kelly Creek
Bridge 2 was rebuilt from the abutments up, and Beaver Creek Bridge was rebuilt
from the piles up. The practice in the district of replacing the standard fencing
with flex-beam guard-rail was continued.
Waneta Bridge received considerable maintenance and a design was obtained
to renew the deck system, using steel stringers rather than the round timbers as at
present. Materials for the redecking of the 500-foot bridge were purchased and
the work is now under way.
Preparatory work to resurfacing of the Castlegar Overhead was commenced, as
was also repair work to the piers.
Buildings
New tar and gravel roofs were placed on the Fruitvale garage, the salt shed
in Kinnaird, and on the sign shop, assembly room, and storehouse in Rossland. Oil
houses in all three areas were painted inside and out.
Automatically controlled yard lights were erected in Fruitvale and a new
electrical service was provided for the minor buildings in the Rossland yard. One
bay of the equipment storage shed in Rossland was converted for mechanical staff
use by lining, insulating, and installation of natural gas heating.
The yard extension at Kinnaird was fenced and further clearing work was
undertaken. Materials were purchased to erect a welding-room extension to the
Rossland garage.
Ferries
Traffic on the Castlegar Ferry increased steadily throughout the year. New
hydraulically controlled aprons were designed and installed.    The No. 1 ramps
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  103
were dismantled and the steel stringers salvaged. Sand blasting and painting of
these stringers was well under way at year's end to permit their use on the Waneta
Bridge.
The ferry continued to operate on an 18-hour-day basis.
Grand Forks District
Roads
Maintenance—The winter assistance crews brushed British Columbia Highway
3 in the vicinity of the Phoenix Junction and the road to the Granby Mine, together
with several minor roads. Rock Creek-Kelowna Road was brushed for 9 miles and
shoulder widening was started south of Beaverdell.
Shoulders were widened from Spencer Hill to Eholt on British Columbia Highway 3 and soil sterilants applied from Rock Creek to Midway.
The three-year cost-sharing programme with the Village of Midway was
completed.
Double the normal snowfall in the area and a late spring raised the snow
service costs.
Construction—The northerly 3.9 miles of Rock Creek-Kelowna Road were
gravelled and paved. New construction, including a major culvert installation for a
half-mile south of Beaverdell, was started. A half-mile was reconstructed to sub-
grade for realignment in a rock cut at Trapper Pit.
In preparation for roadmixing, 1.8 miles of Brown Creek were improved and
gravelled.
Paving—On British Columbia Highway 3, 0.25 mile of new truck lane was
paved in the Paulson area and 0.35 mile of new pavement was laid at the Midway
Weigh-scale site.
In the Grand Forks, Christina Lake, Midway, and Beaverdell areas, 7.3 miles
of sealcoating was carried out on minor roads. Approaches to the 12th Street Bridge
were paved.
Bridges
Deck and stringers on Granby Bridge were replaced. Minor repairs were carried out on Schulli, Thirty Mile, Blythe, Boundary Smelter, Franklin, and Beaver
Bridges.
Scotty Bridge was completely rebuilt. Repairs were made to trusses on Riverside Seed Farms and Cooper Bridges. The King truss on Cascade Upper Bridge
was replaced by a 70-foot Bailey span.
Bridge 17 Camp McKinney was replaced by a 4-foot-diameter steel culvert.
Buildings
Gas heaters were installed at the Grand Forks equipment shed. Two bays of
the shed were remodelled to provide sign shop, roads storeroom, foreman's crib,
mechanical storeroom, and assembly room.
An addition was made to the Greenwood equipment shed and roll-type doors
installed. An existing shed at the Grand Forks Bridge yard was closed in to provide
a workshop for the bridge crew. The roof on the Grand Forks garage was replaced.

B 104 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
New Denver District
Roads
Maintenance—Brushing and chemical brush control were carried out on all the
main roads, with satisfactory results.
The snowfall was above average in most areas and several large slides occurred
on the Kaslo-New Denver Road.
Construction—Major construction was carried out on the Galena Bay-Nakusp
Highway, and 1 mile of heavy rock work was completed. Work continued on Kaslo-
New Denver Road, and 4 miles are now completed to subgrade near New Denver.
The district also was engaged in heavy rock work over several miles just west
of Kaslo.
Bridges
New bridges were constructed at Enterprise Creek on the Vernon-Slocan Highway and at Rapid Creek on Balfour-Galena Bay Highway.
Ferries
The MV Needles Ferry continued to operate on a normal 24-hour basis.
Occasionally a tug was required to assist the ferry while motors were being repaired.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance—A considerable amount of brush cutting on main roads and
some side roads was carried out by means of the Winter Assistance Programme.
Many old wooden culverts on side roads were replaced by metal pipes. All
culverts were checked and, if necessary, cleaned out. All culverts on main highways
were marked and numbered.
Either oil or calcium chloride was laid as a dust palliative on side roads in front
of residences and a 12-mile section of the Wardner-Fort Steele Road.
On the Moyie Hill section of British Columbia Highway 3, steel guard-rail was
replaced by reinforced-concrete no-post guard-rail as deemed necessary. The same
type of guard-rail was placed also at the approaches to all bridges on British Columbia Highway 3 and Kootenay-Columbia Highway.
Maintenance of existing signs and installation of new signs together were a
continual job throughout the year.
Snow removal—Although the amount of snowfall for the winter was average,
frequent light falls of only 1 to 3 inches required the use of more chemicals and sand
than usual. Two shifts were employed seven days a week through all of December,
January, and February.
Construction—On British Columbia Highway 3, shoulders were widened to 10
feet for a total distance of 6.05 miles.
Brushing, widening, and gravelling were carried out on 1.3 miles of the
Cranbrook-Wycliffe Road and 0.33 mile of the Cranbrook-New Lake Road. On
the Cross Road, 0.95 mile was brushed and 0.09 mile widened and gravelled.
A total of 1.13 miles of streets in the Cranbrook area were constructed or
reconstructed, including gravelling.
Over 5 miles of fencing were erected on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway
between Eager Junction and Fort Steele.

Wasa and the Wild Horse Creek Bridge.
A considerable amount of additional maintenance was created due to an unusually high number of vehicular accidents involving damage to fence panels and
railings on many bridges and, in particular, major damage to the Kootenay River
Bridge at Wardner.
Buildings
All the buildings in the Yahk yard and the storage shop in the Kimberley yard
were rewired.
Fernie District
A mild winter and slow spring run-off resulted in minor maintenance in repairing damage from failures, slides, etc. Pavement damage from frost action was also
less than normal.   Snow removal was slightly higher than normal.
Considerable shoulder work and ditching between Natal and the British
Columbia-Alberta boundary was completed prior to paving by contract.
Elk Valley Arterial and the Upper Elk Valley section of Elk Valley Road received continuous major maintenance due to heavy industrial coal-field development
projects.
Minor improvements and several miles of roads were constructed in the Baynes
Lake area due to relocation of people affected by flooding of land by the Libby
Dam project.
Calcium chloride and bunker C oil were used in several areas as a dust-layer.
A continuing programme of permanent bridge redecking with concrete overlay
is helping reduce maintenance of old bridge decks. The regional paint crew completed painting all bridges west of Fernie to Wardner.
Golden District
Roads
Maintenance—Vegetation control on rights-of-way and shoulders of main
highways and heavily used secondary roads was continued. Signs were repaired,
replaced, and (or) updated as required. Pavement repair, crack-filling, ditching,
and slope repair were carried out. Litter was removed from ditches, rights-of-way,
etc., on a five-day week basis from both the Golden and Athalmer maintenance
establishments during the four-month tourist season.
Construction—On the Kootenay-Columbia Highway at Edgewater, 0.7 mile of
highway was widened, slopes improved, additional drainage installed, and the base
strengthened in preparation for a hotmix paving project. A total of 29.8 miles of
side roads was improved, gravelled, ditched, and drainage improved. Some rock
bluffs were drilled and blasted on the Toby Creek Road, and 1.39 miles of new
streets were constructed and gravelled and 0.8 mile paved with hotmix asphalt.
Snow removal—Roads to Mount Seven, Fairmont, and Panorama Ski Hills
were maintained. Snowfall was heavy and constant; necessitating frequent ploughing, sanding, and use of chemicals. A total of 30,211 tons of sand and 582 tons of
salt was used. The paved roads were kept bare most of the winter. Two eight-hour
shifts were in effect from November 14 to March 31, with additional call-outs to
cover storms.   A few small snowslides occurred in the Kicking Horse Canyon.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  107
Bridges
Routine maintenance was carried out where necessary. Driftwood was frequently removed from bridge-sites on the Columbia River. Hawke Bridge and No.
3 Creek Bridge were reconstructed.
Revelstoke District
Roads
Maintenance crews concentrated on various side roads, frontage roads, and
subdivision roads, brushing, widening, ditching, and gravelling. Preliminary work
on construction of rest areas and view points was also undertaken.
On British Columbia Highway 1 at Three Valley Lake, 0.2 mile of gabions were
installed for rock-fall protection. The cut bank at Clanwilliam Overhead was widened to provide an improved sight distance at the bridge approach. Considerable
pavement patching was done on British Columbia Highway 1 and Revelstoke-Mica
Creek Highway. Metal signposts have been made up and installed east of Revelstoke on British Columbia Highway 1, with very good results over the past winter.
Erosion repairs were undertaken at Five Mile Canyon and Forty-five Mile on
Revelstoke-Mica Creek Highway.
British Columbia Highway 1 west of Revelstoke was closed for four hours on
June 3, 1970, due to a mud slide caused by a creek overflowing its banks.
A record snowfall for the district, averaging 323 inches, was recorded over the
past winter, resulting in above-average use of sand and salt. Minor snowslides
occurred at Summit Lake, Clanwilliam, Three Valley, and Silver Creek on British
Columbia Highway 1 and also on Revelstoke-Mica Creek Highway, with no extensive closures resulting. Revelstoke-Nakusp Highway and Revelstoke-Mica Creek
Highway were closed overnight on two occasions as a result of extreme slippery
conditions caused by freezing rains.
Day labour—Grade construction, paving, and shoulder chip seal were completed on Project 2109, Camp Creek Revision.
The grade was revised and repaved at the west approach to Woods Overhead
on British Columbia Highway 1.
At the Galena Bay and Shelter Bay ferry landings, the ramps were extended,
gabions for erosion protection were installed, concrete ramps were sawed and heating cables installed, dock lighting and signal installation were completed, and generator buildings were constructed.
Various side roads, frontage roads, and subdivision roads in the Revelstoke
area were improved by widening, ditching, gravelling, and paving, either by surface
treatment or roadmixing.
Bridges
Construction of Camp Creek Bridge on British Columbia Highway 1 was
completed by the district bridge crew. The same crew was also engaged in the construction of the footings, jacking pads, and abutments on Blanket Creek Bridge.
Extensive repairs were undertaken to the expansion joint at pier 2 on the
Columbia River Bridge.
New grills were installed in the intake structure at Jack McDonald avalanche shed.
J
 B  108 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
A log-crib storage dam was constructed on Bannock Creek and a water line
installed to provide water for Shelter Bay ferry complex.
The portal bracing and interior sway bracing damaged by overheight loads of
logs were replaced on Boat Encampment Bridge. Warning portals were installed at
both ends of the bridge.
The garage at Trout Lake was relocated in the new maintenance depot. Construction of a foreman's residence at Trout Lake was also undertaken by the
bridge crew.
Ferries
MV Galena was drydocked at Shelter Bay on the evening of June 10, 1970, to
accommodate work by Allied Shipbuilders and CSI inspection. The ship was refloated at 1 p.m. on June 11, 1970. Emergency service was maintained by a tug
and barge during this period.
MV Lardeau was drydocked at Shelter Bay from June 11, 1970, to November
25, 1970, for inspection and repairs.
MV Galena was out of service again from February 26, 1971, to March 3,
1971, for repairs to the propulsion unit.   MV Lardeau was in service for this period.
Other than the above, regular ferry service was maintained for the rest of
the year.
REGION 4
(L. A. Broddy, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George)
Quesnel, Prince George, Pouce Coupe, Fort St. John, Vanderhoof, Burns Lake,
Smithers, Terrace, and Prince Rupert Highway Districts
Quesnel District
Roads
Maintenance—Again considerable frost-boil repairs were necessary on the
Cariboo Highway south of Quesnel, along with a major shoulder repair at Stoner.
Rest stops were constructed at Australian and Hush Lake on the Cariboo
Highway, along with litter-barrel sites at Dog Prairie, Dunkley, and the Bell Pit
north of Hixon.
Quesnel and Soda Creek maintenance yards were moved to new locations and
facilities.
Oil as a dust palliative was applied to 18.8 miles of residential and the more
heavily travelled rural roads. Calcium chloride in liquid form was applied to 28
miles of the Barkerville Road.
Construction—Reconstruction of the Barkerville Road continued, with one-
half mile being reconstructed and 8 miles levelled by gravelling in preparation for
placement of paving base course.
Seven miles of rural roads in the Quesnel area were gravelled, including some
subdivision roads.
One-half mile of steep hill section was reconstructed on the Paradise Road,
along with a 1.5-mile section on the Fraser Road at Narcosli Creek.
Vernon, Ogilvie, Sales, and Logan gravel pits were landscaped.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  109
Bridges and Ferries
New bridges were constructed in place of Cooper, Zirnhelt, Dunkley, and
Baezaeko Bridges.
McLean Bridge was replaced with a 60-inch metal culvert.
The ramp was replaced on the west side of Marguerite Ferry.
Prince George District
Roads
Maintenance—With the general austerity programme in effect, maintenance
crews were kept to a minimum. However, a large number of small problem areas
in the district were improved or eliminated entirely.
Spring break-up was relatively light, with few major problems encountered.
This was attributed to a combination of good weather and repairs made the previous year.
With the assistance of the regional mixing plant, large grader patches were
laid on the Cariboo Highway and on the Yellowhead Highway, eliminating some
extensive repetitive patching and levelling out some large distortions.
Approximately IY2 miles of side roads were hard surfaced, either by road-
mixing, or grader-laying previously stockpiled coldmix asphalt. Approximately
40,000 gallons of dust palliative (bunker oil) were laid on local roads.
Spring flooding, although confined to only a few areas, created some problems. On the week-end of May 16, 1970, a culvert collapsed and plugged, resulting in washing out a portion of the John Hart-Peace River Highway at McLeod
Lake. A temporary detour was installed, with final repairs completed by the end
of July. On the week-end of June 7, 1970, the log stringer detour bridge at
Ptarmigan Creek on the Yellowhead Highway collapsed and was replaced later that
same day with 60 feet of single-single chord-reinforced Bailey bridging. The same
week-end the Fraser River flooded a portion of the Upper Fraser Road near
Hansard, but there was no subsequent damage to this.
Winter maintenance—Due to necessity to restrict crews to bare minimum, a
new system of winter shifts was implemented fairly successfully. In spite of a long
but relatively mild winter, overtime was kept to a reasonable low.
Snow was concentrated in small overnight amounts for most of the winter, with
only one or two major snowfalls. Pine Pass was closed for approximately 40 hours
due to high winds, drifting, and poor visibility. Rain on two occasions in January
reduced portions of the Yellowhead Highway and the John Hart-Peace River Highway to virtual skating-rinks, severely complicating winter maintenance. The rain
either fell and immediately froze, coating all sanding material on the road, or did
not freeze and floated sand and salt off the road surface.
The bare-pavement policy was continued and attained with fair success, except
on the Yellowhead Highway east of Prince George and in the Pine Pass area,
although difficulty was experienced due to unpredictably slow and at times unreliable
salt delivery.
Bridges
Construction of the Mischinsinlika Creek Bridge on the Parsnip River Road
was completed. Redecking of Quaw and Old Nechako Bridges was completed, as
well as repairs and general maintenance of other bridges, including installation of
a Bailey bridge at Ptarmigan Creek.
J
 B 110 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Wind bracing and trusses on the Parsnip River Bridge on the John Hart-Peace
River Highway were damaged on two separate occasions by over-height loads.
Repairs were effected in September and December by contract.
Ferries
The west landing of Isle Pierre Ferry was reconstructed. The superstructure
for the ferry itself was prefabricated for later installation.
Pouce Coupe District
Roads
Maintenance—The preceding winter snowfall was decidedly lower than normal and the average temperature was considerably higher than normal, so that
spring run-off conditions were the best in years. The district enjoyed a fair-weather
season for maintenance, construction, and gravelling of sideroads. The pavement-
patching programme was extensive and the district is well up-to-date in that
respect. Brush spraying was completed over 95 miles of trunk highways and
approximately 6,000 man-hours were applied to brushing and right-of-way clean
up in a winter works programme. Decant oil was applied to 20 miles of side-roads
for dust-laying.
Construction—The bulk of the summer's work was reconstruction and re-
gravelling by district forces. A 120-foot-long binwall was built to retain a slide
at Mile 32.8 on the Alaska Highway. A Land's Department subdivision was completed at Mile 22 on the Alaska Highway.
Snow removal—Snowfall was average and snow removal problems were
greatest around the holiday season when winds closed 50 per cent of the farm and
settlement roads.
Bridges
Seven new small bridges were constructed, one small bridge was reconstructed,
and 14 bridges were repaired.
Ferries
The Clayhurst Ferry operated routinely under the recent new conditions of
controlled water from the W. A. C. Bennett Dam. An ice crossing was maintained
during the past winter.
Fort St. John District
Roads
Maintenance—Heavier than normal snowfall and some severe icing conditions
made heavy demands on the maintenance crew but almost all of the roads were
kept passable at all times. The winter shift system was used at all maintenance
depots.
The 1970 spring break-up was normal; however, due to the extremely wet
weather during the latter part of 1969, all earth roads were saturated and, consequently, during break-up, became impassable in sections. Load restrictions were
in effect between March 23, 1970, and May 4, 1970. The Stikine Ferry was in
operation between May 19 and November 7, 1970.
Construction—Due to the much reduced day-labour programme, a lesser number of improvements were made during 1970/71 than the previous year. In the
various areas, 7.1 miles of new roads were constructed, 5 miles were reconstructed
and 3 miles were reconstructed and gravelled. In addition, 22.6 miles were re-
graded and 33.5 miles were gravelled or regravelled.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  111
Two miles of new road were constructed on main highway 103. A portion of
this was bridge approach work and 0.75 mile was road-floated over a swampy area
previously detoured.
In the Fort Nelson area, right-of-way reclearing was completed on 6.9 miles
of the Fort Nelson Bridge access roads and 0.5 mile of new clearing was done for
the Lands Branch on proposed subdivision roads. Also, as gravel is not available in
all areas, the district moved, over an average of 22 miles, 35,270 cubic yards of
pit-run gravel which they also stockpiled; 8,000 cubic yards of crushed material
scheduled for use on the 1971 projects were moved over 16 miles to another
location.
The district crack-filled 104 miles of various paved roads and placed approximately 2,000 tons of hotmix material in patching and resurfacing. There was also
a 2.5-mile test section of seal coating completed on the Watson Lake-Cassiar-
Stewart Highway. Some dust control was done in the developed areas served by
gravel roads.
Bridges
Six new bridges were constructed during the past year, and varying amounts
of repairs carried out on 15 other bridges. In addition, numerous repairs were
made to bridges in the Atlin North area.
Buildings and Grounds
The regional carpenter crew constructed a warehouse in the Hudson Hope
maintenance yard and completed insulation of the Good Hope Lake shop ceiling.
The water system at Good Hope Lake was completed and is now serving the
entire camp with piped water.
Radio-telephone communication was established with the previously silent
Dease Lake Maintenance Camp.
Peace River Bridge at Taylor.
 B 112 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Vanderhoof District
Roads
Maintenance—District crews' efforts were extended primarily to the upgrading
of side roads. Gravel was placed on over 50 miles of district roads and several
trouble spots eliminated.
Roadside development and right-of-way improvements received special attention. Three roadside rest areas and four additional litter sites were established.
Seeding was carried out on 20 miles of the Vanderhoof-Fort St. James Highway
and 30 miles of the Yellowhead Highway were improved with rotary mowers and
spraying to control brush.
Construction—Reconstruction included 6.1 miles on the Blackwater Road, 6.5
miles on the Tache Road, 4.5 miles on the Pinchi Road, and 2.8 miles on the
Sturgeon Point Road. One mile of road was constructed for a Crown subdivision
in the Fort St. James area and work continued on the construction across Priest
Meadow.   Pulvimix was laid on 0.7 mile of the Kenney Dam Road.
Bridges
The Engen Overhead Bridge was resurfaced by the Headquarters crew. Major
repairs were carried out on the Nechako 1, Nechako 2, and the Murray Creek
Bridge.   Several other district bridges received minor repairs.
Mining Roads and Bridges
Twenty miles of additional construction extended the Germansen Landing
Road to Aiken Lake. This road is being extended to open up the area north of
the Thutade. A new bridge, 190 feet long, was built across the Mesilinka River,
and some materials moved in for the Lay Creek Bridge. An 80-foot log stringer
bridge was reconstructed over Discovery Creek. Approximately 300 miles of mining
road in this area is maintained by the district on behalf of the Department of Mines.
Buildings
A salt shed was constructed for the Fraser Lake depot, and materials ordered
for an oil house and salt shed at Fort St. James.
Burns Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—Major improvements to various side roads included 23 miles of
ditching and 25 miles of gravelling. Alignment was improved on the Rose Lake
Cut-off and on the Colleymount Road.
Extensive patching of pavement was carried out on the Yellowhead Highway
between Burns Lake and Rose Lake and at the Perow Slide. Similar work was
required also on the North Francois Road.
A rock berm was built and a perforated drainage pipe was installed at the
Priestly Slide.
A considerable amount of clearing of right-of-way was accomplished by means
of the winter works programme.
Construction—Clearing and grubbing were completed on 8.8 miles of Topley
Landing Road and on 0.6 mile of Keefe's Landing Road.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  113
On the North Francois Road, a rock cut 500 feet long was removed and the
material placed as riprap along the road at Tchesinkut Lake.
A total of 4 miles of reconstruction, including gravel surfacing, was completed
on Gerow Island, Colleymount, Defoe, and Hamre Roads.
Snow removal—Snowfall was well above the average throughout the district.
Due to constantly varying temperatures, extensive use of chemicals was required to
prevent icing conditions.
Bridges
A high load caused extensive damage to a portal brace and main brace of the
Pleasant Valley Bridge.
Ferries
The MV Jacob Henkel, the Francois Lake Ferry, was out of service four weeks
receiving a complete refit.   During this period service was maintained by barge.
During the winter months, block ice at mid-channel caused considerable damage to the rudder stocks, both of which had to be replaced.
A new approach fill was constructed on the north shore.
Buildings and Yards
At Burns Lake, one bay was added to the shop and the assembly room was
enlarged.   The Southbank yard was fenced.
Smithers District
Roads
Maintenance—Besides normal day-to-day maintenance, additional attention
was given to landscaping right-of-way on the Yellowhead Highway to improve the
aesthetics and make mowing and other maintenance more efficient. Garbage clean-up
and improvement of rest areas received extra attention.
Construction—Babine Lake Cut-off was almost completed this year. This
project included substantial right-of-way landscaping and slope seeding.
Snow removal—Winter conditions were not unusually severe. Shift crews
maintained safe conditions and a great deal of bare pavement throughout the winter.
There was a marked increase in the use of salt for ice removal.
Bridges
The old structures over the Bulkley River at Smithers and over the Kitseguecla
River were removed during the winter. A large quantity of Bailey bridge material
was removed from the site of the old Smithers Bridge.
Ferries
Traffic showed no increase over the previous year. Regular service was maintained and an aerial basket was in use for passengers during the winter.
 Hagwilget Bridge near Hazelton.
 regional reports b 115
Terrace District
Roads
Maintenance—All district roads were maintained satisfactorily, with a minimum of disruption to traffic throughout the summer season. The winter was
exceptionally long, producing record and near record snowfall reports from all
areas. This condition brought about frequent road closures on the Yellowhead
Highway west of Terrace due to snowslides and required a heavy expenditure for
chemicals, abrasives, and hired equipment.
A winter works brush-clearing crew was used to advantage on the Kitimat
Highway and on local roads.
One new four-table rest-stop was established and two additional pull-outs with
litter barrels constructed.
Construction—The Khyex River bridge approaches were completed to allow
for the completion of this structure in 1971.
Widening of the Yellowhead Highway west of Terrace was continued, including the placement of additional riprap where required.
Minor day-labour works consisted of the construction of a new access from
Kitimat Highway to the Lakelse Lake area and the grade improvement and surfacing of 1 mile of local streets in Thornhill.
Bridges
As usual, considerable work was carried out repairing and maintaining the
34 wooden structures on the Yellowhead Highway west of Terrace. These bridges
are 28 years old and require continual attention and repair to accommodate the
ever-increasing traffic volume.
Highway 16 west of Terrace (Mile 51).
 B  116 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1970/71
Ferries
The reaction ferry and aerial car were operated at Usk to give year-round
transportation over the Skeena River.
Buildings
Salt-storage sheds were erected at Kitimat and Salvus to improve our snow
removal operation at these locations.
A 20-man trailer bunkhouse complex was set in at the Salvus Camp, replacing
the small, two-man trailers.
Safety
The Terrace District won the regional safety trophy for the year 1970. This
trophy was presented to the district by Mr. A. F. Park, Senior Training and Safety
Officer.
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance and repairs were carried out on all major
routes in the district, with special emphasis on the Yellowhead Highway. This
highway was ditched and reshouldered with gravel at various locations and the
right-of-way was slashed and cleared with the assistance of winter assistance crews.
On the Queen Charlotte Islands a major programme is being undertaken to
improve the roads on Moresby Island. Slashing crews have been at work and a
patching and shoulder stabilization programme is being undertaken.
At Stewart, a programme is under way to upgrade the Stewart-Watson Lake
Highway from Stewart north through the Bear Pass.
Construction—Construction continued this year on the Queen Charlotte Islands
between Port Clements and Masset and in Queen Charlotte City; 4 miles of road
were built to subgrade and 3 miles to profile grade.
Work was started on the Port Edward Arterial, with approximately 50 per cent
of the 6 miles being improved to a suitable standard.
Four miles of the Stewart Arterial were reconstructed. Underground drainage
with catch basins was installed and the road finished with a crushed-gravel dressing.
Snow removal—The northwest coast experienced a very prolonged winter with
above-average snowfalls. Shift systems were employed in Prince Rupert and at
Stewart. In February, the Department opened the Stewart-Watson Lake Road to
the Bell-Irving River and maintained this road throughout the balance of the winter.
Bridges
Three log stringer bridges were constructed in the Alice Arm area and one log
stringer bridge at Stewart. The Chown Bridge on the Queen Charlotte Islands was
rebuilt and also a pedestrian bridge on Porcher Island near Prince Rupert. Many
other repairs and maintenance jobs were completed in the district.
Ferries
Prince Rupert Ferry 1967 Ltd. and Misty Island Transportation Co. Ltd.
operated ferries on a subsidy basis. The former operated locally near Prince Rupert
and the latter operated a barge service between Graham and Moresby Islands on
the Queen Charlotte Islands.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B 117
Yards and Buildings
The compound area of the Prince Rupert yard was filled and elevated to provide more parking and storage area. Several buildings were revamped to provide
more suitable storage.   The Port Clements yard was partly fenced.
