  To Colonel the Honourable John R. Nicholson, P.C., O.B.E., Q.C., LL.D.,
Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia.
MAY IT PLEASE YOUR HONOUR:
Herewith I respectfully beg to submit the Annual Report of the Department of
Highways for the fiscal year ended March 31, 1972, in compliance with the provisions of the Department of Highways Act.
W. D. BLACK
Minister of Highways
Office of the Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, August 20,1972.
 Victoria, B.C., August 1, 1972.
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 ending March 31, 1972.
An exceptionally severe winter, with some of the heaviest snowfalls on record,
created many problems for the winter maintenance crews, who should be commended for their tremendous efforts in fighting the snow conditions.
The enlarging of the Motor Vessels Queen of Saanich and Queen of Vancouver
helped to ease the ever-growing demand on the British Columbia Ferry Service.
Once again there was a considerable number of valuable employees who retired with impressively long service records: E. C. Webster, formerly Director of
Construction, had 37 years' service; W. R. Workman, formerly Contract Documents Engineer, had 36 years' service. Two Road Foremen, namely, S. F. Deans,
of New Westminster, and W. K. Trail, of Kamloops, also saw 36 years of service.
W. R. Jeffs, Regional Mechanical Superintendent, North Vancouver, had 40 years'
service.
Traffic volumes on the highways increased from between 5 to 10 per cent,
whereas on the ferries the increase was more substantial at 14 per cent. By comparison, highway construction increased by 21 per cent, bridge by 60 per cent, and
the Howe Sound Queen was added to the ferry fleet.

 HIGHWAYS REPORT
REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Victoria, B.C., July 31, 1972.
Sir: The fiscal year reports submitted by all branches of the Department of
Highways are hereby compiled into the Annual Report.
The snowfall for the year was exceptionally high, being the highest on record
in some instances, and the cost of snow removal rose correspondingly to $6,837,000.
Snowslides, together with some rock and mud slides, caused road closures, but these
were kept to a minimum by the resolute maintenance crews and all main roads were
kept open. The cost of general maintenance on roads, bridges, and ferries amounts
to $42,252,000.
The Motor Vessels Queen of Vancouver and Queen of Saanich, both of the
British Columbia Ferries Division, were lengthened and with the purchase of the
Howe Sound Queen helped to offset the 14-per-cent traffic growth on all routes over
the previous year. The traffic growth on the ferries under the jurisdiction of the
Superintendent of Ferries amounted to 10.6 per cent over the previous year on all
routes.
The Property Negotiations Branch completed 753 settlements for a total of
$5,515,190.74 expended on the acquisition of highway rights-of-way and other properties required by the Department. A further $300,000 was expended on legal surveys.
There are 27,194 miles of Provincial highways and, of these, 3,384 are classified as trunk highways and 1,852 as main highways. The total length of highways
within municipalities classified as arterial and secondary is 1,150 miles and, of these,
565 miles are trunk highways and 289 miles are main highways. The total mileage
of paved highways, both Provincial and classified, is 8,243 miles.
R. G. Harvey
Assistant Deputy Minister

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
REPORT OF THE CHIEF PROPERTY NEGOTIATOR
In the 1971/72 fiscal year, 753 settlements were completed and a further 547
claims were in the process of negotiation. Five cases were settled by arbitration and
steps were taken to refer a further 10 claims for settlement by arbitration.
A total of $5,515,190.74 was expended on acquisition of highway rights-of-
way and other properties required by the Department.
Land assembly on behalf of the British Columbia Harbours Board for the port
area and the adjacent corridor required an expenditure of $2,066,710.
Land acquisition for the Libby Reservoir project carried out by this Branch
required an expenditure of $652,102.
Eight sales by public auction and 25 sales by public tender were held covering
surplus land and buildings to be cleared from rights-of-way. Recovery from these
sales amounted to $45,099.02.
During the fiscal year, 93 buildings and parcels of land were under short-term
lease or rental agreement.   Gross revenue received from rentals was $67,642.20.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF EQUIPMENT
During the year a net total of $10,042,324.09 was expended to cover the cost
of maintenance and operation of Government equipment operated by the Department of Highways.
The sum of $3,439,111.87 was expended on the purchase of new equipment as
follows: 28 power graders; 6 crawler tractors; 16 rubber-tired loaders; 10 rubber-
tired tractors, loaders, and mowers; 175 one-half- to one-ton trucks; 6 one and
one-half-ton trucks; 105 four- to five-ton trucks; 1 tandem tractor truck; 10 station-
wagons; 1 office trailer; 1 mixing plant; 3 screening plants; 2 mobile cranes; 1 hydro-
seeder; 21 truck-mounted ploughs; 4 self-propelled rollers; 1 snow blast; 2 sweepers;
3 brush chippers; 14 compressors; 6 garbage packers, and sundry small equipment
such as power-saws, pumps, tampers, garage equipment, etc.
Several specialized units were purchased this year which will assist in maintaining a neat, clean roadside. These units included a new hydroseeder for spraying
grass seed and mulch on the roadside, two new mobile sweepers for cleanup of
bridges and pavement, two side-arm-mounted flail mowers for mowing on steep
slopes and inaccessible areas (see photograph), and six garbage trucks (see photograph). The garbage trucks are a specialized type which were designed so that the
top section of the garbage packer can be lifted off and the truck converted into a
salt- or sand-spreading unit for winter use.
A new tractor trailer unit (see photographs) was added to the fleet to assist in
transportation of Department equipment to obtain maximum efficiency from available equipment.
SIGN SHOP
A net expenditure of $150,022.63 was incurred by the Departmental Sign Shop
in the production of all road signs during the fiscal year.

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS
New trunk control consoles for the Department's radio system were installed at
Kamloops, Nelson, and Prince George. Consoles in all regions are now standardized. In addition, the Kamloops console now has the capability of activating any
station in the Interior of the Province.
Full trunk communication was extended to the Yellowhead Highway, Bella
Coola, and Bridge River areas.
The conversion to solid-state, battery-powered, mountain-top trunk repeaters
is almost complete, with 88 sites in operation involving 164 solid-state units. Only
three of the original Hydro-powered sites are operating. Four others are powered
from a combination of Hydro and battery sources.
The new repeater stations have a very high reliability, each unit failing electronically only once every five years on the average. The special batteries used have
a single-charge lifetime of over five years. We are still experiencing some station
failures as a result of lightning strikes or extremely high winds. The fibreglass buildings are being strengthened, and the building foundations are being redesigned to
withstand average winds of 120 miles per hour, with gusts of 240 miles per hour.
The methods of protecting the buildings and equipment from the effects of lightning
strikes are being improved.
Surveys were completed for the extension of the system from Terrace up the
Stewart-Cassiar Highway to Good Hope Lake. This extension, involving six new
stations, is scheduled for completion in August of this year.

REPORT OF THE CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER
Submitted herewith are the reports of the Senior Bridge Engineer, Director of
Construction, Senior Paving Engineer, and the Senior Traffic Engineer.
The total length of final location surveys completed during the year was 173.5
miles and the total length of office design, together with estimates, was 212 miles.
Design assignments handled by the Bridge Design Branch numbered 193.
The total amount of construction or reconstruction by contract amounted to
115 miles, of which 12 miles were four-lane construction. Reconstruction of local
roads in the Waldo—Newgate area, due to the reservoir created by the construction
of the Libby Dam on the Kootenai River in Idaho, U.S.A., is nearing completion.
The construction of 33 bridges was completed during the year and another 46
bridges are under construction. On the Upper Levels section of British Columbia
Highway 1, work has started on the spectacular Cypress Creek and Nelson Creek
structures. Work on the Mission Bridge and the Knight Street Bridge is continuing,
the latter being unique in that it is the first of its kind on the North American
continent.
The total length of highways paved with plantmix asphalt was 346.75 miles,
which, together with roadmixed asphalt of 316.13 miles, makes a total of 662.88
miles of pavement laid in the fiscal year. Sealcoat surface treatment was also applied
to 144.33 miles of road surface.

On British Columbia Highway 3, work has started on the Blueberry Creek to
Kinnaird 3.12-mile section. The Eager Hill project is 50 per cent complete. On
the Nelson-Nelway Highway 6, the Ymir to Euphrates 9.3-mile section is nearing
completion; whereas work on the Nelson to Taghum project is only approximately
one-third complete.
On the Yellowhead Highway, though the Prudhomme Lake to Galloway
Rapids contract is complete, the McNeil River to Prudhomme Lake contract is only
95 per cent complete. Of the 10.8-mile section from the Fraser River to District
Lot 7203 south of McBride, 8.1 miles are complete.
On the Chilcotin Highway 20, approximately one-third of the 15.1-mile section
west of Williams Lake has been completed.
On the Cariboo Highway 97, the Williams Lake to Mountain House section
has been completed and 3.1 miles of the Australian to Alexandria Indian Reserve
remain to be completed.
Approximately two-thirds of the 11.5-mile section of the Stewart-Watson Lake
Highway between Beaverpond Creek and Bob Quinn Lake is complete; whereas the
North Bell-Irving River to Beaverpond section, some 16 miles, is at present half
complete.
Reconstruction of some 25 miles of local roads in the Waldo to Newgate area
due to the reservoir created by the construction of the Libby Dam on the Kootenai
River in Idaho, U.S.A., is nearing completion.
Construction of the Agassiz to Haig section of the Lougheed Highway is proceeding according to schedule. The widening of the 6-mile section to four lanes
between Pitt River and Haney is nearing completion.
The approaches to the Roberts Bank Railway overpass on the Pacific Highway
at Cloverdale and on the King George VI Highway are nearing completion.
Also nearing completion is the Billings to Cascade section of Highway 395.
However, the Halfway River to Galena Bay Pass section of Highway 23 was only
recently awarded and work has not yet started.
Work on the Cypress Bowl access road, recently awarded, has only just started,
and the Mount Seymour Park Road is almost 50 per cent complete.
On Vancouver Island, the widening of the Patricia Bay Highway to four lanes
is almost complete. There remains 4 miles of reconstruction on the Cowichan Lake
Highway. The 13.6-mile section from Great Central Lake Road to Taylor Arm on
Highway 4 west of Port Alberni was awarded, and 7 miles have been completed.
The programme to connect the Port Hardy area to the Island Highway system
continued with the completion of the 5-mile section between Nimpkish Lake to
Nimpkish Junction. The 13-mile section from the south to north end of Nimpkish
Lake was awarded, and 2.9 miles have been completed this fiscal year.

PAVING BRANCH
D. F. Martin, Senior Paving Engineer
Authorizations issued in 1971/72 totalled $20,031,000, which was $5,420,000
more than the previous year.
Expenditures amounted to $15,731,221, which was $2,195,302 more than last
year.
A total of 320 miles of highway was paved, which was 4.5 miles less than the
previous year. In addition, Paving Branch crews roadmixed approximately 87
miles, surface-treated 119.6 miles, and shoulder-treated 45.3 miles.
Weather conditions were generally favourable throughout the paving season,
and the performance of contractors and suppliers was up to the usual standard.
Contract Crushing, Base Construction, Drainage, and Paving
Eight projects were carried over from 1970/71, all of which involved substantial field work and expenditure. Thirty-nine projects were called and awarded
up to the end of 1971. A considerable amount of projects for paving in Provincial
parks was carried out for the Department of Recreation and Conservation at a cost
of approximately $797,000, also the paving of service areas and parking-lots for
various Provincial departments and agencies was included in our paving contracts.
Nineteen projects were completed during the year and twenty-eight involving
field work will be continued into 1972.
 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER C 33
The use of softer cut-back asphalts in the colder areas of the Province was
continued again in 1971 and further studies will be made on its effect in reducing
maintenance costs.
Pulvimix and Surface Treatments
Three day-labour crews under the over-all control and direction of a Senior
Technician were again employed in 1971. MC-2 cut-back asphalt was used on all
roadmix work as it appears to give the best results under the variable weather conditions encountered during construction. A total of 206.6 miles was surface-treated
or roadmixed, and 45.3 miles of shoulder treatment were completed by the Paving
Branch crews.
A test section of 8 miles of highway shoulders was primed, then treated with a
viscous type of emulsion and covered with % -inch gravel. There is every indication
that this test was successful and further studies will be made.
Research and Development
The concern in recent years with the problem of cold-weather performance of
asphalts has resulted in a change of specifications introduced early in 1971. Last
year the use of soft asphalts, such as SC-5, was introduced into areas of very cold
weather and some difficulty was experienced where the SC-5 showed a low affinity
to some gravels, but on the whole, no serious construction problems occurred. However, a more fundamental approach to the problem showed that it is possible to minimize cold-weather cracking problems by ensuring that the stiffness of the bitumen
never rises above a certain minimum, no matter what temperature is reached. (The
stiffness of asphalt increases as the temperature decreases.) It is possible to do this
by either using softer asphalts in colder areas or by using an asphalt which stays flexible at low temperatures. Such an asphalt has a low-temperature susceptibility.
The new specifications limit this degree of temperature susceptibility for a given degree of hardness and a given level of service temperature. Two types of asphalt—
"A" for areas of low temperature and "B" for areas of moderate temperature—are
so defined.
The modified Marshall method of mix design using vibratory compaction of
test briquettes has been generally adopted for the design of soft asphalt mixes and
also for cut-back asphalt mixes.
Following trials of nuclear methods of measuring asphalt pavement density,
the Department has recently acquired a portable nuclear densometer. This will be
used for the exploration of compaction work and is still in the experimental stage.
During the preparation of the gravel base for a paved roadway, tests were run
by mixing 10 per cent of emulsified asphalt with the water which is usually used to
aid compaction and as a palliative. In fine weather this was found to be most effective, but if rain fell before the emulsion had "broken," the results were not good.
In 1970, an experimental section of open-textured carpet was laid on Highway
401, near Langley, to assess the effect of increasing skid resistance. The success
was questionable. This year a second test section with slightly different mix design
properties was laid down for further observations.
Programming
The practice of rating surface conditions of the highway system has continued
with the profilometer this year in conjunction with the recently developed method of
measuring the roughness of the surface with a roughness meter in a vehicle. The
two ratings combined and compared with the traffic volume for any section of high-
2
 C 34 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1971/72
way make it possible to assign resurfacing priorities objectively and in conjunction
with the numerous other planning factors to draw up a resurfacing programme.
Personnel and Training Developments
The Senior Paving Engineer attended the Annual Conference of the Canadian
Asphalt Association at Montreal in 1971.
The Senior Paving Engineer transferred to the position of Director of Location
and the Senior Maintenance Engineer assumed the position of the Senior Paving
Engineer.
One Engineering Assistant passed the British Columbia Association of Professional Engineers' examinations and is now an Engineer-in-training. Two Project Supervisors left the Government service. Most university students who had
been employed by the Branch previously were re-employed during the summer construction season.
Safety
Branch personnel had 22 medical aid and three lost-time accidents since April
1, 1971.   Since the last accident, 574,366 man-hours have been worked.

 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER

TRAFFIC BRANCH
J. H. Harding, Senior Traffic Engineer
During the past year, activity again increased in the Province and the number
of vehicles using British Columbia highways was significantly higher than in the
previous year. The Traffic Branch continued to co-operate with individuals and
organizations in the associated fields of traffic safety, traffic planning, standardization
of traffic-control devices, and traffic operations.
The Senior Traffic Engineer again represented the Department on the British
Columbia Safety Council, the St. John Ambulance Highway First Aid Committee,
the Roads and Transportation Association Council on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada, and the Roads and Transportation Association Committee on
Traffic Operations.
Short-duration annual traffic counts were taken with automatic equipment at
approximately 800 locations throughout the Province. Traffic volumes are recorded
continuously throughout the year at 21 additional locations, and six of these
recorders count traffic separately for each direction of travel. Further counts were
taken as required for special purposes such as railway-crossing, intersection, and
planning studies.
Punched-tape traffic counters are used as much as possible so that calculation
of traffic-count information can be done with data processing equipment. A translator machine located in the Traffic Branch office is used to transfer information from
punched tapes to computer cards.
Summer daily traffic volumes for 1971 show approximately 41,000 vehicles on
the Port Mann Bridge, 59,000 vehicles on the Pattullo Bridge, 60,000 vehicles on
the First Narrows Bridge, 72,000 vehicles on Oak Street Bridge, 43,000 vehicles in
the George Massey Tunnel, and 15,000 vehicles on the Okanagan Lake Bridge.
Data from the permanent count stations showed traffic increases in 1971 over 1970
of approximately 10 per cent in the northern and southern Interior, 5Vi per cent in
the Fraser Valley, and 7 per cent on Vancouver Island.
Considerable assistance was given to the Planning Branch in obtaining data
through the use of Traffic Branch counting equipment and personnel. Similar assistance was provided to some municipalities and the University of British Columbia.
Many intersection problems were investigated during the year. This work
included the taking of counts of manual vehicle-turning movements and the preparation of designs for the improvement of approximately 60 intersections. These
improvements included widening, channelization, signing, and signal revisions to
give greater capacity, eliminate hazards, and generally improve the flow of traffic.
Numerous highway design plans were reviewed to ensure that intersections and
interchanges would function well under actual traffic conditions.
Traffic signals were designed and installed at 15 intersections throughout the
Province. Flashing beacons were installed at nine intersections. Approximately
400 street-lighting luminaires were installed at intersections, highway interchanges,
and ferry landings. Electrical design work was done in connection with the construction of new ferry terminals and reconstruction of existing ones. Three electrical
technicians were fully employed with the preparation and maintenance of signal
equipment and traffic counters in the Victoria electrical shop and with installation
and maintenance of electrical traffic information and control installations throughout
the Province.
Eight railway grade-crossings were signalized in co-operation with the Federal
Railway Transport Committee and the railways under the committee's jurisdiction.
 C 40
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
Two signal installations were completed at highway crossings on the British Columbia Railway and at three locations on the B.C. Hydro Railway.
Many speed limits were reviewed due to changing traffic conditions and, in
consultation with the police authorities, changes were made where they appeared to
be warranted. In some cases actual travel speeds were checked by means of a
radar speed meter.
Fatal accidents occurring on British Columbia roads and highways during the
year were again reviewed in detail and significant characteristics tabulated.
Portions of numbered highways and major unnumbered roads which were
altered in any way were checked with a ball bank indicator and advisory speed
signing was revised as necessary to conform with the uniformity of application of
this type of signing.
MAINTENANCE
P. B. MacCarthy, Senior Maintenance Engineer
One of the severest winters on record was experienced in nearly all areas of
the Province and maximum snowfalls caused considerable problems in maintaining
our highway system, particularly over major routes such as Rogers Pass and Fraser
Canyon sections of British Columbia Highway 1 and Terrace to Prince Rupert
section of Yellowhead Highway 16. Numerous snowslides caused frequent and
lengthy closures on all of these routes, particularly during the months of December,
January, and February.
On British Columbia Highway 1 the Fraser Canyon section was closed eight
times for a total period of 10 days and Rogers Pass section was closed 10 times for
a total period of 11 days. The Hope to Princeton section of British Columbia Highway 3 was closed twice for a total period of two days and the Terrace to Prince
Rupert section of Yellowhead Highway 16 was closed 14 times for a total period of
22 days.
Despite the prolonged and heavy snowfalls, our crews are to be highly commended for working long and arduous hours under the most difficult conditions in
keeping all roads open and in good condition. To cope with the abnormal amount of
winter maintenance, many additional units of private equipment had to be hired,
bringing about abnormally high expenditures well above budgeted votes.
Because of the well-above-average snow-pack existing in all areas of the
Province, a major flood potential existed by the 1st of April.
A major day-labour programme was successfully completed and the additional
regional crushed-gravel requirements to support the programme were met by calling
many crushed-gravel contracts.
Roadside Development
During 1971 the roadside development programme continued with the two
hydroseeding crews successfully completing the seeding of 2,079 acres of roadside
and the refertilizing of 746 acres. Late in the year a new 1,500-gallon hydroseeder
was purchased so that three hydroseeding crews will be available to undertake seeding and refertilizing in all parts of the Province.
Two hydroseeding contracts were let this year, totalling 897 acres, at a cost of
$108,097.
The development of roadside rest areas progressed, with 42 sites being completed and 19 sites which are either in the planning or early construction stages.
In the field of vegetation management, the chemical control of weeds and brush
continued and treatment was completed on 5,271 acres.   The Department worked
 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER
C 41
co-operatively with other departments in the Knapweed control programme, covering
some 145 acres in the Kamloops and Kootenay areas.
Shoulder sterilization was carried out on approximately 1,500 acres throughout
the Province.
A 20-minute, 35-mm. slide presentation with taped commentary entitled "Vegetation Control" was completed. This is to be used in various training programmes
for foremen and weed-spray applicators.
Training sessions for the licensing of weed-spray applicators were held in all
four regions.
In the Vernon District the production of concrete roadside tables and prefabricated concrete toilets for use in rest areas continued in a very satisfactory manner.
A total of 150 tables and 45 toilets was manufactured and shipped to locations in
all four regions.
 C 42
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
REPORT OF THE  SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
In 1971, bridge design and construction as well as ferry terminal design, construction, and maintenance were brought under one jurisdiction. This consolidation
of structural operations of the Department enables a co-ordination of like operations
as well as advantageous employment of staff.

Bridge Engineer
BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION
L. C. Johnson, Bridge Construction Engineer
Thirty-three new bridges were completed or reconstructed in the 1971/72
fiscal year. On March 31, 1972, 41 bridges were under construction and work had
not commenced on five others all under contract—most being included in extensive
highway construction projects.   Particulars are given in the accompanying listing.
Bridge construction started early and quickly with the return of construction
weather in the spring and maintained a fast tempo throughout the year.
By the year's end the crossing of the Fraser River at Mission was rapidly taking
shape—all substructure and major approach fills had been completed; approach
steelwork had been erected and fabrication of the main-span steelwork was well
under way; light-weight post-tensioned concrete beams, manufactured at the site,
had been erected and one span of approach deck had been cast. A start had been
made on the construction of Commercial Avenue Overhead on the approaches to the
main crossing.
The pace of construction at Knight Street Bridge increased during the last half
of the year and by March 31 the shape of the span crossing the North Branch of
the North Arm of the Fraser River was becoming evident. At that time the substructure construction was nearing an end with the river piers being about 95 per
cent complete; about 25 per cent of the prestressed girders for the approaches had
been manufactured on the site and erected.
Excellent progress was made on Peterson Creek Bridge on British Columbia
Highway 1 near Kamloops. In a period of 10 months from contract award to closedown in the fall, the structure was constructed to a point where it awaits the casting
of the deck to complete it.
Two spectacular structures are taking shape on the Upper Levels section of
British Columbia Highway 1, namely, Cypress Creek and Nelson Creek Bridges.
Stool-like piers are being constructed and later the gaps will be filled in with prestressed beams topped with a concrete deck.
A good construction season in the east Kootenays saw the bridge across the
Kootenay River at Wardner and the adjacent railway overpass virtually completed.
Downstream, the piers for the Kikomun Bridge were completed as planned a year
ahead of the rising water behind the Libby Dam; completion of the structure is to be
carried out after the construction of the approach fills.
Progress at Quadra Street Underpass on the Patricia Bay Highway near Victoria
was slow but steady due to the need to employ unconventional construction methods
necessitated by the presence of an extremely soft marine clay underlying the site.
One operation involved the pushing of 16-inch-diameter steel-pipe piles through
 REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
C 43
about 90 feet of fill and ground to bear on the underlying rock. By the year's end
all problems had been solved and the structure awaited the erection of steelwork.
Falaise Underpass, which is similar in style to and located adjacent to Quadra
Street Underpass, was the first multiple trapezoidal welded box-girder bridge constructed by the Department. The structure was ready for traffic at the end of the
fiscal year.
Four pedestrian overcrossings, three on the Patricia Bay Highway and one on
the British Columbia Highway 1 at Cassiar Street in Vancouver, were completed. A
pedestrian-equestrian overcrossing in Stanley Park over the road to the North Shore
was erected but not completed by the year's end.
During the year there was considerable bridge activity on the Stewart-Cassiar
Highway on structures ranging from small steel spans supported by timber cribs and
Bailey bridges similarly supported, to the construction of concrete piers and abutments for the 608-foot two-span crossing of the Bell-Irving River. At Devil Creek
the contractor employed a unique steelwork erection scheme which involved the
filling of the 75-foot-deep gorge with compacted snow and erecting the steelwork on
top of the snow.
Twenty-eight bridge decks were constructed during the year, this being approximately double the normal due to the carry-over from the previous year. As a result
there was considerable activity in this sector with 6,500 feet of two-lane deck being
constructed.
As site construction slowed in the fall, the fabrication of steelwork increased,
resulting in the greatest activity ever in this field.
BRIDGE DESIGN
G. S. Kirkbride, Bridge Design Engineer
Further to the continuing extensive programme for the replacement of under-
strength bridges, new river crossings, and grade-separation structures, work was
started on structures for the extension of the Island Highway on the northern part
of Vancouver Island.
In addition to the design programme for new structures, designs for the modification or repair of existing bridges were also prepared. This included the modification to raise the overhead bracing on numerous through-truss bridges, thereby
improving the vertical clearance on several main highways.
The magnitude of this programme is indicated by the following tables of designs
in various stages of completion:

REPORT OF THE CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
PLANNING BRANCH
M. G. Elston, Senior Planning Engineer
The final analyses of travel patterns and traffic characteristics were completed
for the Coquitlam area study. Future travel demands were projected and a number
of proposed major additions to the existing highway and street system were tested
and evaluated. The first phase of an in-depth evaluation of the Provincial system
of primary highways was commenced. Extensive travel surveys were conducted on
Vancouver Island and considerable development work undertaken on computer
techniques and other analysis procedures required to evaluate the primary system.
The objective of this study is to quantify current usage and travel characteristics of
the primary system and provide a framework for projecting inter-regional travel
demand so that a horizon-year primary network can be identified and its required
characteristics adopted.
Ten smaller studies were conducted throughout the Province. Four were concerned with traffic patterns into and through small urban areas; two were run to
estimate trip lengths on routes which appeared to be serving some arterial function;
two were run to estimate the proportion of through traffic attracted to roadside business, and two were undertaken to examine travel patterns and ramp usage on urban
freeways. In all these studies observation was made of licence plates, so information
was collected without delay to drivers. The regional secondary road study of the
Okanagan system was continued to near completion.
The annual photographic inventory of roads was carried out. Approximately
6,000 miles were covered. Incorporated this year were instruments for recording
vehicle axle movements as indicators of surface roughness, maintaining the technical
lead of the photographic system developed in British Columbia. The film was used
by various branches and officials for detailed study of road sections. The film record was used by the Planning Branch for reviewing all major routes in the Province;
deficiencies were noted and projects, with costs and schedules, were recommended.
The computer inventory data bank was updated and modified and now includes information on the status of projects being studied, designed, included in annual programme, or under way. This information is processed to produce a variety of reports
for executive decision.
A Municipal Programme section was set up within the Branch to deal with
municipalities on matters of mutual concern to municipalities and the Department,
and to co-ordinate decisions within the Department relating to municipalities. This
section deals with such matters as highway classification, Department participation
in the cost of secondary highways, and shared-cost undertakings on arterial highways.
The Branch and regional and district officials processed some 3,698 tentative
and 3,293 final subdivisions, 554 controlled access and 3,900 ordinary entrance
permit applications and 432 rezoning applications. With the fast growth and development of British Columbia, this work is increasing rapidly.
GEOTECHNICAL AND MATERIALS BRANCH
J. W. G. Kerr, Senior Geotechnical and Materials Engineer
The Branch undertook a heavy programme concerning bridge and building
foundation studies, soil surveys, slope-stability studies, aggregate prospecting, field
 C 84
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
inspection, materials testing, and resurfacing of concrete bridge decks. Work has
progressed into the final stages on long-range organization planning showing the
various functions of the Branch and the established positions under these functions.
Bridge-sites
Forty-four bridge-sites have been investigated and formal reports prepared.
Of these, work on the following bridge-sites was complex, requiring a high degree
of ingenuity in solution of the foundation problems:
Squamish Underpass (Upper Levels Contract 1).
Hunter Creek Bridge (Chilliwack to Hope).
Wahleach (Jones) Creek Bridge (Chilliwack to Hope).
Maria Slough (Agassiz to Hope).
Main Street Overpass widening (Vancouver).
Parsons Bridge widening (Esquimalt).
PGE Overhead, Williams Lake (Highway 20).
Williams Lake Creek Bridge (Highway 20).
MacAlister Underpass (Highway 97).
Terrace South Bridge.
Pouce Coupe River Bridge.
Rosebery Bridge (New Denver District).
Nimpkish Spur Underpass (North Vancouver Island).
Salmon River (North Vancouver Island).
Crescent Valley (Slocan).
Ladner Interchange (Highway 97).
Parmiter Road Underpass (Highway 17).
Requests for foundation investigations have been received for 24 other bridge
structures and were scheduled according to priority. Because of difficult access,
considerable use was made of airphoto interpretation to examine the local geology
and estimate bed and bank material characteristics. Possible difficulties related to
the bridge-sites, such as confluence situation, relations to scour and fill in the channel,
and possible sources of seepage which might contribute to local instability, were
noted. Drilling has been done at Kinman Creek despite a very difficult access
problem for drilling equipment.
Pile-driving blow-counts from most bridges which were being constructed in
1971 were analysed to assess the adequacy of pile depths compared with earlier design recommendations based on bore holes. This follow-up work ensures the adequacy of the constructed foundations and provides additional information for future
designs of piles foundations. The Branch participated in a load test on a Hercules-
type pile at Cloverdale.
At Peterson Creek Bridge, load cells placed at the bottom of four of the 12
caissons have been monitored since installation, as proposed in last year's report.
Stability Problems
Princeton Slide—The Princeton Slide occurred early in April 1971 in a known
slide area immediately east of Princeton and affected both the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway and property just beneath the highway. Over 2,000,000 tons
of material were involved, the cause being attributed to excessive underground water
pressure rather than the presence of the highway. A total of four relief wells and
three piezometers has been installed.   The artesion water pressures have dropped
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
C 85
from an initial value of 20 p.s.i. to 9.5 p.s.i., attributable to the drainage of approximately 16 million gallons of water from the slide area in one year.
Clover Valley Road—A special problem occurred on this project where a high
fill is required for a vertical transition. The underlying soils are extremely weak,
consisting of very wet peat (13 feet) underlain by extremely soft clay. An economical solution has been reached by steepening the allowable grade and the use
of a light-weight fill. Because of the possibility of cedar sawdust causing pollution
problems if used below the water table, hemlock sawdust will be used instead.
Terrace-Shames Project—A request for a soils report from the Canadian National Railways resulted in a study on rock-fill slope stability on the above highway
project. The work involved collection of data on the fragmentation characteristics
of the rock to be used in the stability analysis of the fill. Over 1,200 pieces of information on these characteristics were collected and, through a special computer
programme, the near fragmentation indices were obtained. A measure of the range
of friction angles of the cohesionless fill was obtained from these indices and, subjecting the analysis to the lowest possible shearing strength and additional earthquake stress equivalent to a seismic acceleration of 6 per cent (100-year earthquake), a stable fill slope was determined.
Certain additional recommendations were made for the modification of the fill
foundation, which included clearing of debris, steps to be cut to key in the fill, and
the installation of drainage pipes.
Roberts Bank Railway Overpasses—In last report, the problems of constructing
approach embankments for overpasses at Cloverdale on the King George VI Highway were discussed and the use of sand drains proposed. Sand drains to an average
depth of 70 feet have now been installed on a 14-foot grid and seem to be functioning as expected.
At Cloverdale, the fills are up to grade and settlements are continuing at a satisfactory rate. At the King George VI Highway site, stage construction over several
months is progressing under marginal stability conditions. Both sites are heavily
instrumented to monitor stability and measure settlements which have reached as
must as 7 feet at some King George VI Highway locations.
Eagle Creek fill—A new (to the Department) type of settlement plate, employing a hydraulic levelling procedure, is being used to obtain measurements of settlement with time under Eagle Creek Fill (186 feet maximum height), constructed
mostly of shot rock. This type of instrument eliminates the need to have a steel
pipe protruding through the fill to obstruct the contractor's operation and suffer
possible accidental damage. These plates will be installed at 25-foot vertical intervals at the deepest part of the fill. The purpose of the installation is to provide information to designers for other structures where settlements may be a major factor.
Very little information is available concerning settlements in rock fills.
Slope stability—Investigative work is in hand on slope-stability problems at
Mad River (Highway 5 near Vavenby), Caisson Creek (Highway 97), and Cottonwood Creek (Nelson arterial). An investigation for a bin wall on the Nelson arterial showed the foundation soils to be too weak; the wall will be replaced by a
berm, and the fill monitored by instrumentation to achieve the full 100-foot height.
Soil Surveys
Soil surveys and gravel prospecting for new and revised route surveys occupied
a significant proportion of Branch effort. Twenty-nine soil-survey projects were
carried out for a total of 172 miles.
 C 86
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
Branch manpower resources were frequently strained to provide essential services for this programme. Relocation surveys through difficult terrain, such as between Penticton and Sicamous, and between Kelsey Bay and Nimpkish Lake, were
investigated extensively by indirect methods such as by the seismic refraction method
and through aerial photo interpretation rather than by detailed field sampling and
drilling. However, gravel prospects for road base and pavement construction can
only be reliably designated after fairly detailed site drilling or excavation of test pits,
and the generally decreasing availability of suitable gravel areas in the Province
made this task increasingly difficult.
Photo interpretation, using specially flown low-level photos as well as the more
common Air Photo Division small-scale photos were used to map soil types on the
widening of the British Columbia Highway between Highway 9 and Wahleach Power
station. Five soil types were distinguished and their limits were mapped using interpretation and information from recent drilling done on the project. The soil
boundaries are important in that a pavement evaluation is to be based on the variation in the soils along the 6-mile stretch. A major point in the work was the delimiting of peat and clay/silty clay areas and the interpolation of drilling records
to areas where no drilling data existed.
As a result of a proposed four-lane arrangement for British Columbia Highway
1 from Bridal Falls to Hope, a feasibility study of relocation of Canadian National
Railways fill was conducted. Altogether, six areas were investigated where shifting
of the CNR tracks farther into the Fraser River channel is proposed to accommodate
two additional highway lanes.
Of the 39 holes, 24 were drilled by Department forces, and the remaining 15
holes were drilled by a contractor on a barge-mounted drilling rig in the Fraser
River channel.
The channel holes were drilled in rapid waters of depths up to 38 feet.
Rock Slopes
Hells Gate Bluffs (Highway 1)—Studies on Hells Gate Bluffs have been accelerated this year and an interim programme of rock slope drainage and waterproofing of the slope has been completed. Proposals for further stabilization of
the slope are still under study.
Slocan Bluffs—A geological study was made of the rockslopes above Slocan
Bluffs. An over-water seismic survey and drilling programme were also completed
of the lake bottom to assess the possibilities for a relocation of Highway 6 north of
Slocan City.   As a result of the study, an alternative revision is being considered.
Ruby Creek and Odium Bluffs (Agassiz to Haig)—A consultant has been
retained to conduct stability studies of these rock slopes. Departmental geological
staff have also worked on the problem and the Department has provided support in
the form of surveying, geological mapping, safety-rope installation, and diamond
drilling.
Porteau Bluffs (Horseshoe Bay to Squamish)—A large, overhanging block
in the centre of the bluffs was drilled during the winter months and successfully
blasted down in one shot in late March. This further improves the safety of this
area.   No damage was done to the British Columbia Railway by the falling rock.
The cut area adjacent to Station 700 has been the scene of several slides in
argillite, some of which have blocked the road. Drainage holes were drilled to
alleviate possible water pressures that might lead to instability in the cut. Further
work is planned, including a major scaling and shotcreting programme.
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
C 87
Jackass Mountain Slide—A rockslide of about 25,000 cubic yards occurred
on March 7, 1972, on British Columbia Highway 1 at Jackass Mountain. This is
the largest rockslide to occur on the British Columbia highway system since the
Hope Slide on January 9, 1965. The slide followed a heavy rainfall after heavy
snowfall. Clearing operations were started immediately by district forces, but even
so, the road was closed to traffic for several days. Geological examination was
started as soon as immediate danger from further rockfalls appeared unlikely. The
slide is attributed to water pressure resulting from excessive rain and thaw conditions.
Drainage holes drilled into the slide produced large quantities of water. Geological
study of the area will continue during the summer, but initial corrective work will
have to cease when summer traffic flow becomes a problem. No immediate danger
from further slides is expected.
Pavement Evaluation
A heavy demand was evident this year for rapid evaluation of pavement designs, particularly prototype designs for new roads. The continuing training of
the regional staffs in pavement evaluation is beginning to provide benefits so that in
the coming year a considerable portion of the work load can be accomplished directly
in the regions. Pavement evaluation was further extended to include deteriorating
bridge concrete deck surfaces. By the use of statistics and extensive practical experience, it is intended to further the idea of repairing concrete surfaces before
serious deterioration starts, and thereby extending the useful life of these roadway
surfaces.
Forty-one individual projects involving 224 miles were provided with evaluations either for strengthening or for new pavement thickness designs.
These could be separated as follows:
Region 1—15 projects, for a total of 42 miles.
Region 2—6 projects, for a total of 37 miles.
Region 3—11 projects, for a total of 91 miles.
Region 4—9 projects, for a total of 54 miles.
Some 338 miles of roadway were field-tested for predicted contract preparation in 1972. Additionally, 283 miles of roadway base construction were monitored to provide a uniform level of compaction and strength. The spring load restriction testing, for protection of district and local roads, is a continuing service
which takes considerable effort in the spring months.
Laboratory Development Studies
Several experimental test sections for improving lighting conditions have been
installed in the George Massey Tunnel. These test sections will permit us to select
the most economical and most effective method of lining the tunnel. The evaluation
will be complete by mid-summer of this year.
Some 14 highway test sections have been chosen across the Province to further
evaluate the effect of studded-tire wear on both asphalt and portland cement concrete surfaces. The effect of studded tires on pavement markings is also being
checked this season.
A movement measurement instrument was developed for Hells Gate Bluffs
which by its remote reading capability removed the need to climb the rock slopes.
Further studies have also been made into the behaviour of asphalt cements
available to the Department in an effort to avoid transverse cracking of pavements
in northern areas of the Province.
 C 88 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
The behaviour at cold temperatures of thin asphaltic concrete layers bonded
to orthotropic-steel bridge decks is being tested in the laboratory. Since the existing
Port Mann Bridge and the forthcoming Mission Bridge both use this type of roadway, it is important to minimize any possible future problems.
A hand-probe piezometer was developed for use in the soft soils of the Vancouver delta. This allows groundwater pressure to be measured under fills almost
immediately and where drills are not available for predrilling holes.
The work of the paint-testing group has widened to include paint systems used
on the large interisland ferries. Additionally, a standard group of paint colours for
highway bridges has been prepared with the double purpose of obtaining pleasing
colours and ensuring a uniform and high quality of product. The construction of
a new paint-testing room in Victoria will provide dust-free controlled humidity conditions and a better work flow; both of which will increase our capability to test
paints.
Drilling Generally
Both the geological and soils engineering studies are supported by information
obtained by Department and contractors' drilling crews, who obtain soil samples
and rock cores. This year, the Department crews have employed a new portable
drilling barge which is more suited to the heavier equipment now used. At Slocan
Bluffs, drilling of the lake bed was performed through 200 feet of water. Since then,
the barge has been employed for drilling at Mara Lake, in the swift-flowing Skeena
River, and elsewhere. The first portable drilling barge was purchased 14 years ago,
and was, we believe, the first such barge used in British Columbia. It saved its
original cost many times during its period of service.
Productivity and the quality of core recovered should be improved by the recent acquisition of wire-line coring equipment which will fit existing drills.
As an item of general interest, an 18-inch-diameter hole was drilled by Department crews in the steps of the Legislature for television cables for the visit of Her
Majesty.
The drilling crews have also distinguished themselves by earning the British
Columbia Safety Council award of distinction, the first and highest to be earned by
any group in the Provincial Government. This was for working for five years without a lost-time accident greater than three days in a high-hazard occupation.
Bridge Deck Resurfacing
The programme of restoration of bridge deck surfaces by the application of a
thin concrete overlay was expanded in the past year, but the rate of deterioration
still appears to exceed the rate of repair. Eleven bridges were resurfaced in 1971,
one in each of Regions 1, 2, and 4, and eight in Region 3.
The largest bridge deck undertaken was the Alexandra Bridge across the Fraser
River at Spuzzum, where the asphaltic surface was removed and replaced with concrete.   Work at this site was considerably slowed by the early onset of winter.
During the year, particular emphasis was given to increasing the productivity of
the crew, by improving the mechanization where possible, and by foreman training.
The rate of scarifying the bridge decks, that is, removal of the deteriorated concrete,
was increased by rental of a motorized scarifier requiring one operator. Previously,
the scarifiers had been hand-held and required two operators. Mechanized cleaning
was adopted, along with many ideas contributed by the crew. The basic crew increased by two men to eight. District bridge crews assisted in the work, as in previous years. A total of 114,435 square feet of bridge deck was resurfaced; 27,908
square feet were resurfaced in 1970.

The traffic growth on all routes in 1971 reached unprecedented increases, averaging 14 per cent over 1970.
As predicted, it was necessary to schedule extra sailings of vessels operating on
the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale and Mainland-Gulf Islands services.
The completion of two more jumboized ships, MV Queen of Vancouver and
MV Queen of Saanich, now offers this route (Swartz Bay-Tsawwassen) a daily liftoff capacity of over 6,000 vehicles and 19,000 passengers.
The Queen of Prince Rupert experienced the "best year" ever due in part to the
audio-visual programme conducted in the Prairies and Seattle markets. Tour operators enjoyed a more successful year on this route than in 1970; however, commercial
traffic continues to develop sporadically.
Additional service on various routes will be achieved during the coming year
through the Queen of Sidney on the Gulf Islands-Mainland route, the addition of the
Sechelt Queen to the Nanaimo service, the Howe Sound Queen on the Bowen Island
route, the Bowen Queen on Jervis Inlet, and the Pender Queen acting as a supplementary ship from Swartz Bay to the Gulf Islands.
The purchase of the 70-car Howe Sound Queen now operating on the Bowen
Island run releases the Bowen Queen for supplemental service in the summer on
Jervis Inlet and also provides an adequate relief vessel for minor routes.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
During the past year, ferry service was provided on 38 routes under the jurisdiction of the Department. This was accomplished by a fleet consisting of seventeen
major ferries, eleven reaction ferries, four cable ferries, five subsidized vessels, and
eight miscellaneous ferries. There are also two tugs and six barges maintained for
emergency purposes.
Traffic
The fleet carried 1,756,459 vehicles and 4,657,916 passengers.
Maintenance
All ferries were inspected during the year and repairs carried out where
necessary. Twelve major ferries were drydocked and overhauled. Relief ferries
were provided for interim service wherever possible.
Major Changes
Tenders were let and a contract issued for three new ferries for the coastal
routes at Denman Island, Gabriola Island, and Thetis Island.
Courtenay District—The subsidized operation of the Hornby to Denman
Island route was taken over by the Department. It is the intention to have the
MV Westwood on this route by September 1972.
Nelson District—The MV Anscomb was tied up to allow a contractor to carry
out major alterations, which include a sewage-treatment system, new propulsion
machinery, and new housework. This will be completed in time for the summer
tourist season.
Fort St. John District—A tug and barge service was put into operation for a
short term when a local bridge was washed out by flood.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
REGIONAL REPORTS
REGION 1
(D. D. Godfrey, Regional Highway Engineer, North Vancouver)
Saanich, Nanaimo, Courtenay, North Vancouver, New Westminster,
Chilliwack, and Vancouver Highway Districts
Saanich District
Roads
The Langford-Colwood-Metchosin area continued to develop rapidly with a
subsequent higher demand for services. Subdivision activity decreased in the Gulf
Islands and the Langford-Colwood-Metchosin areas but increased in the Sooke and
Cobble Hill areas, where an abnormally high number of permits were processed.
A heavy rainstorm on February 26 and 27, followed by a windstorm with
velocities to 105 m.p.h., caused extensive flooding and tree destruction in the Cobble
Hill and Gulf Island areas. The following week-end, March 4 and 5, another heavy
rainstorm caused extensive flooding in the Langford, Metchosin, and Sooke areas.
The Sooke road was closed by flooding for six hours on March 5, 1972.
Maintenance—All areas of the district received above-normal slashing and
drainage work under the Winter Assistance Programme.
Bituminous surfacing—Ten miles of the West Coast Road west of Jordan
River were roadmixed. Each foreman's area received from 1 to 4 miles of roadmix
pavement. A new type of sealcoat, using a special emulsion and crushed gravel,
was placed on 15 miles of district roads, some on gravel surfaces. To date it has
not proven too successful.
Reconstruction—The Patricia Bay Highway was converted to four lanes of
traffic early in December after two years of reconstruction work. The Old Island
Highway was reconstructed to a five-lane width from British Columbia Highway 1
to Colwood Corners, but the surfacing is still to be completed. On Saltspring
Island, reconstruction was started on Sunset Drive and completed on Beaver Point
Road.
Snow removal—Winter shifts did not begin until early December, but because
of the long winter were prolonged for a month past the usual date of February 15.
Frequent snowstorms were experienced, but due to the milder average temperatures,
there was no accumulation on the ground. Large quantities of salt and sand were
used, particularly on the new and wider Patricia Bay Highway.
Bridges
Replacement of the Harris Cove Bridge at Port Renfrew was started. All
materials were purchased and the approach fills placed. Pedestrian overpasses were
constructed over the Patricia Bay Highway at Weiler Road, Amity Drive, and
Rogers Street.
Buildings
A new fuel shed, foreman's office, and assembly room were constructed of
concrete blocks at the Sooke yard. Work was started on a new fuel shed in the
Cobble Hill yard.   A new fabrication shop was constructed in the Langford yard.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  105
Nanaimo District
Roads
Bituminous surfacing—The major paving programme in the Greater Nanaimo
area, covering the main feeder roads in the various member districts, was continued.
In areas where pedestrian traffic was heavy, additional widths were provided for
walkways by means of shoulder widening and painted edge lines.
A major paving programme was carried out in the Alberni Valley covering a
number of main feeder routes and major residential streets.
Reconstruction—The Alberni-Parksville Highway shoulders were widened in
the Cameron Lake area for a distance of 3 miles. The Island Highway shoulders
were widened north of Parksville and the shoulders through the Village of Parksville
were paved. Improvements were carried out to the British Columbia Highway 1
shoulders south of Duncan and north of Ladysmith.
Snow removal—The snowfall was extreme, but handled successfully with main
routes and school bus routes kept open.
Bridges
The Marion Creek Bridge on the Alberni-Tofino Highway was rebuilt at a
new location. Other bridges were rebuilt and repaired throughout the district.
A programme of placing no-post guard-rail at bridge approaches was completed
except for the Alberni-Tofino Highway, where it is to be carried out as a continuing
programme.
Ferries
runs.
Normal service was maintained on the Thetis Island and Gabriola Island ferry
Buildings
Office and lunchroom facilities were constructed at the Nanaimo garage and
the road foreman's office was rebuilt.
Courtenay District
Roads
Construction—Final rough grading on the south end of the Jeune Landing
access road was completed and some widening and ditching were completed on the
Port Hardy end.   Additional work is required on the latter prior to paving.
On the Coal Harbour Road reconstruction was nearly completed. Final base
gravel and a small amount of reconstruction prior to paving remained to be finished.
Extension of the Winter Harbour Road to service the fish-packing firms and
Indian reserve was completed. No further work is contemplated in the immediate
future.
Oil for dust-layer was applied and approximately 10 miles of side roads were
paved with a coldmix in the Courtenay, Campbell River area and islands. Two
miles of pavement were completed on Hornby Island. A series of bridges and
wooden culverts was replaced by culverts on Read Island. Most culverts used were
salvaged from old, abandoned sections of Highway 19 in the vicinity of Sayward.
Weed-spraying, ditching, shouldering, and sign maintenance were included in
summer maintenance. Because of the wet summer, growth of brush exceeded
normal rate and despite the many man-hours spent on slashing, progress was
limited.
 C 106
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
Snow removal—During the summer of 1971, above-average rainfall delayed
paving by district forces. The winter was severe with approximately 50 per cent
above-average snowfall. In normal winters, rain or warm weather decrease the
depth of snow on the ground, but during the winter of 1971/72 little reduction in.
snow depth occurred. Snowfall varied from 146 inches in Courtenay to 234 inches
in Gold River.
Bridges
Deck systems were replaced on the following bridges: Hammond (Highway
19, Sayward Valley), Trout Creek (Highway 19 north of Campbell River), Hopkins (Endall Road), Byng (Port Hardy area), and Marble River (access to Rumble
Beach). The toll bridge on Read Island was replaced by a large culvert and fill.
Normal maintenance was carried out on other bridges as needed.
Ferries
Normal ferry service was operating between Port McNeill-Sointula-Alert Bay.
Comox-Powell River, Powell River-Texada Island, Campbell River-Quadra
Island, Quadra Island-Cortes Island, Buckley Bay-Denman Island, and in the late
part of the year the subsidized ferry serving Hornby Island was replaced by a
Department of Highways vessel.
Buildings
A single-bay equipment shed was erected at Sointula for the maintenance
crew.   A 54 by 40-foot welding bay was added to the Courtenay garage.
Land was cleared and levelled for a proposed equipment shed on Cortes
Island.
Normal maintenance and painting were performed as required.
North Vancouver District
Roads
Maintenance—Roads were maintained in generally good condition throughout
the year.
Construction—Many small day-labour projects were completed in the Powell
River, Pender Harbour, Gibsons, Bowen Island, and Pemberton areas, with major
reconstruction completed on the west side of Alta Lake, Whistler Mountain area.
Reconstruction was started on Highway 99, Alice Lake to Brohm Lake section, and
reconstruction of Highway 101, Halfmoon Bay, Secret Cove section was completed.
A major scaling and rock-stabilization programme has been carried out on
Highway 99 between Horseshoe Bay and Britannia.
Snow removal—All roads were kept open at all times with the exception of a
two-day closure of Highway 99 because of extremely heavy snowfall and snowslides.
The travelling public and Department of Highways maintenance equipment are
encountering serious problems with parked cars on the travelled portion of the road
at Whistler Mountain as the area fills up.
Bridges
Adequate maintenance was carried out on all bridges.
The Lois River Bridge on Highway 101 near Powell River was opened to
traffic.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 107
Work was undertaken on Callaghan Creek and Mons Overhead Bridge approaches, both presently being constructed by contract.
Paving
Six and one-half miles of roadmix pavement were laid on roads in the Sunshine
Coast and Squamish areas.
Buildings
An additional storage area was built for the North Vancouver shop stock and
a truck bay closed in for use as a carpenter shop. The old fuel house in North
Vancouver was demolished and rebuilt at the back of the property. A new fuel
house was built at Whistler Mountain.
New Westminster District
Roads
Maintenance—Highways throughout the district were maintained to a high
standard. A start was made on reshaping certain median areas on Highway 401
to facilitate mowing. Application of dry chemicals continued in limited areas for
brush control and soil sterilents were applied to shoulders, along guard-rails, and
around signposts. The previous year's beautification programme on Highway 401
was continued by the transplant of many young trees from gravel-pit leasing areas.
The severe winter caused considerable pavement damage, which kept the
patching crews almost continuously employed. The Lougheed Highway 7 through
the Municipality of Burnaby was one of the most badly affected.
Construction—The four-laning of Lougheed Highway 7 between Cape Horn
and Pitt River Road at Essondale was completed with the exception of some landscape work in the median.   This work will be completed in the spring of 1972.
Started in the fall of 1970, the reconstruction of 4 miles of Carvolth Road from
British Columbia Highway 401 to Fraser Highway 1A in the City of Langley was
completed this year. However, because of erosion in some of the newly cut ditches,
further work in the form of storm sewering and drainage control will be undertaken
in 1972/73.
Initial construction of the connecting link between the Stormont Interchange
on British Columbia Highway 401 and Gaglardi Way was undertaken. It consisted
of laying a gravel drainage blanket over the areas of poor subsoil and placing a
surcharge at a very gradual rate in the area of the proposed overpass abutments at
Government Road.   This work will continue through 1972/73.
Channelization improvements were completed at the intersection of Tsawwassen Highway 17 and the Ladner Trunk Road 10 in Delta. The work consisted of
providing left-turn slots on the west leg of Highway 10 and on the north and south
legs of Highway 17. Left-turn channelization was also completed on the King
George VI Highway at 64th Avenue in Surrey.
Construction was started but not completed on left-turn channelization at the
intersection of Scott Road and 96th Avenue and at Scott Road and 72nd Avenue.
At the latter intersection, however, the signals and lighting were completed and put
into operation. Also nearing the completion stage is the left-turn channelization
at the intersection of Lougheed Highway 7 and 240th Street in the Municipality of
Malpe Ridge.
To improve traffic flow and provide additional traffic lanes, parking strips were
eliminated and a raised median island was installed on Brunette Street from the
 C 108
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
overpass on British Columbia Highway 401 to Lougheed Highway 7 in the Municipality of Coquitlam.
At the expense of British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority, district forces
constructed a paved frontage road north of Tsawwassen Highway 17 from Imperial
Road to the Tsawwassen Indian Reserve. Also as part of this project, Brandrith
Road south of Highway 17 was extended to the Tsawwassen Indian Reserve.
To help overcome some of the parking congestion at the Tsawwassen ferry
terminal, about one-half mile of shoulder was widened and paved along the south
side of the causeway to permit overflow parking. Also, a 4-foot-wide paved walkway was provided which is separated from the parking strip with concrete no-post
guard-rail.
District forces also undertook a road-building project for the Department of
Public Works at the Alouette River Rehabilitation Unit in Maple Ridge. About 1
mile of new grade was constructed to a gravel standard to serve as a bypass route
around the complex for logging-truck traffic.
Snow Removal—Winter weather came early, at the beginning of December,
this year and heavy snow and low temperatures continued through to February.
The unofficial total snowfall in the district this year averaged 70 inches.
Once over the initial problems of the first snowfall caused mainly by unprepared motorists, traffic was kept moving with minimum delays throughout the winter.
Due to the frequency of snowfalls, large quantities of salt were required in the
snow-clearing operation.
Bridges
The Canoe Pass Bridge to Westham Island in the Municipality of Delta, a
temporary Bailey bridge replacing a wood truss destroyed two and a half years ago
by a barge, has been replaced by a permanent 160-foot Callender-Hamilton steel
span. Before floating the new span into position by barge, district crews prefabricated two new treated-timber crib piers and set them into position on the existing
piling from a barge.
Concrete footings were installed for the prefabricated-steel pedestrian overpass
at Cassiar Street over British Columbia Highway 401 in the City of Vancouver.
The south approach to the Twigg Island Bridge was redecked before an asphalt
and rock-chip surface treatment was applied. The decks of the Campbell River
Bridge on Pacific Highway 99 and the Nicomekl River Bridge on Fraser Highway
1 were also surface-treated with asphalt and rock chips.
General routine maintenance was carried out on all structures and ferry
landings.
Ferries
Tolls were removed from the Albion ferry service in mid February of this year.
A marked increase in traffic has resulted.
The Albion ferry MV T'Lagunna was out of service twice this year. The first
occasion was from May 17 to June 3 for engine repair. Temporary service for
pedestrian passengers only was provided for this period. The second occasion was
from October 15 to December 15 for major engine refit and renewal of hull plating.
A tug and barge were employed to provide temporary vehicular service.
The Barnston Island ferry maintained a busy, uneventful schedule throughout
the year.
 regional reports c 109
Chilliwack District
Roads
Maintenance—Highways were well maintained throughout the year. Gravel
shoulders of main roads were sprayed with soil sterilent, and brushkill was applied
as required. Mowing and brushing operations were carried out throughout the
growing season. Litter patrols covered the main highways daily during the tourist
season and as required during the remainder of the year. Several minor washouts
occurred during the winter months because of heavy precipitation and were quickly
repaired.
Bituminous surfacing—Approximately 11.6 miles of paving were completed
as reported under "Day-labour Projects."
Construction—The approach fills for the Murray Avenue overpass in Mission
were constructed by the district. Grade revisions and realignments to Slesse and
O'Byrne Roads and realignment of a portion of Sylvester Road were completed.
Snow removal—Heavy snowfall was experienced throughout the district.
Minor slides west of Hope closed British Columbia Highway 1 for short periods.
The travelling public were formed into convoys and escorted across the Sumas
Prairie section of British Columbia Highway 401 by Department vehicles owing
to drifting snow and poor visibility. A severe ice storm in January caused considerable damage throughout the district.
Bridges
A precast-concrete stringer bridge on pile bents, 120 feet long, was constructed
over Atchelitz Creek east of Lickman Road for the frontage road south of Highway
401.
Dale Bridge, a 120-foot pile trestle, was built over Hatzic Slough in the same
location as the old bridge.
Chehalis River Bridge, a 184-foot Howe truss with 110 feet of trestle approaches, was reconstructed using false bents to support the truss during reconstruction.
Buildings
The salt and sand storage shed, together with equipment, had to be relocated
in Bulgar Pit due to the four-laning of Highway 1 near Hunter Creek. Heavy winds
demolished a three-bay equipment shed in the Agassiz yard.
Vancouver District
Roads
Maintenance—The winter was unusually cold and with heavy snow and considerable ploughing and salting were required. However, traffic tie-ups were negligible.
Summer mowing and shouldering were carried out along with a regular patching programme.   Grounds maintenance was carried out at all facilities.
A ditching programme was carried out in the newly acquired Point Grey area.
Construction—Minor improvements were carried out in a number of areas.
Sign bridges were erected on Marine Drive in North Vancouver, precast median
barrier was placed on Johnston Hill, Highway 401, and footings poured for a
pedestrian/equestrian overpass on Stanley Park causeway. The structure was fabricated and erected by contract.

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
minor improvements to short sections on a number of side roads. An experiment
with liquid calcium chloride as a dust-layer was conducted on a 2-mile section of
the Dunn Lake Road at Blackpool. Shoulder stabilization by the "Pounder" process was done on 8 miles of British Columbia Highway 1 between Valleyview and
the Campbell Creek Overpass. The winter was long and difficult with snowfall
records established in Kamloops. District crews had little respite from early in
December through to March.
Construction—A further 3.13 miles of the Lac Le Jeune road and a 3.01-mile
section of Highland Valley Road from Logan Lake Townsite west through the canyon were rebuilt. Widening and gravelling of 9.8 miles on Meadow Creek Road
were completed. Left-turn slots were constructed at the Kamloops West weigh scale
and at Pat Road, Dallas.
Minor improvements by District forces totalled 20.75 miles.
Bridges
Vavenby Bridge approaches were reconstructed and the whole bridge redecked.
Brookfield Creek Bridge was reconstructed with steel piling and precast-concrete
stringers. A new bridge was built at Lemieux Creek 2 and piling was driven for
new bridges at Lemieux Creek 3 and at Deadman 2. A new foreman's office, assembly room, and store were built at Savona.
Ferries
Repairs at McLure and Little Fort ferries included work on the ramps, bridles,
and safety-lines.   New outboard motors were purchased for both sites.
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads in the district. An extensive programme of weed-growth control on highway
shoulders was undertaken with the application of soil sterilents. Roadside brush
was controlled by spraying and mowing.   Approximately 30,000 gallons of oil were
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  111
used for dust control in built-up areas and lakeside roads. Some liquid calcium
chloride was used on an experimental bas;s. Spring run-off problems were numerous, notably in the Anglemont and Falkland areas.
Construction—Reconstruction was carried out on 4.8 miles of side roads.
Snow removal—Record snowfalls were prevalent throughout the district. However, all roads were kept open and in good condition. The shift system proved to
be very satisfactory. There was a notable increase in the amount of sand and chemicals used throughout the district.    Bulk storage sheds were erected at all depots.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on all structures. Three bridges were
reconstructed—Ross Creek, Sims Creek, and Deer.
Vernon District
Roads
Maintenance—Increased traffic volume throughout the Vernon area continued
and required increased maintenance on commuter roads as well as main highways.
Extensive pavement patching was completed ahead of a large chipseal project in
the Vernon and Lumby areas.
The spring run-off on the low areas during late March caused considerable
problems and triggered numerous slides. One of these was the Amory Slide on
Highway 97, 10 miles south of Vernon which caused the derailment of three CNR
freight-train diesel units on March 22.
Subdivision activity in the North Okanagan area continued to increase. The
Department processed 220 tentative subdivisions, 199 final subdivisions, and 256
permits were issued for work on Crown land.
The no-post guard-rail plant operated by the district produced 1,600 feet of
no-post guard-rail, 209 terminal sections, and 204 bridge-transition curbs. A total
of 140 Department of Highways terrazzo-finished concrete picnic tables were completed in addition to 30 toilets using the same manufacturing process.
No-post guard-rail operation at Vernon Highway District. Forms for the new median
transitional section of no-post guard-rail were made at Vernon for manufacture of guardrail at another location.
 C 112
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1971/72
Two special transition curb forms to transform from the median barrier to
standard no-post guard-rail were manufactured for the Patricia Bay Highway project
on Vancouver Island.
Construction—Two miles of the Deep Creek Road and 1.2 miles of the En-
derby-Mabel Lake Road were reconstructed. One mile of the Canyon Road and
0.7 mile of Fortune Road, both through the Enderby Indian Reserve, were also
reconstructed and gravelled. Stage I of a pavement widening and storm-sewer system in Lumby on Vernon-Slocan Highway 6 was completed. Work commenced
on several major intersections off Highway 97 and Vernon-Slocan Highway 6 in
the Vernon area to improve traffic movements. Clearing was commenced on a 1-
mile section of the Carrs Landing Road in preparation for reconstruction.
Snow removal—As generally experienced in the southern half of the Province,
road crews were hard pressed to cope with the snowfall in the North Okanagan
particularly during the month of December when 55.4 inches fell. This amount
almost exceeded the entire winter accumulation of 1968/69. Snowfall in the Mona-
shee Pass exceeded 260 inches.
Paving—Approximately 10 miles of paving on various side roads were completed by district forces, 7.3 miles with the successful use of a plantmix cut-back
asphalt. The district engineering crew supervised the paving of the new Otter Lake
Cross Road intersection on Highway 97a, instituted by the new Crown Zellerbach
Plywood plant in the Municipality of Coldstream.
Bridges
The concrete deck system for the new Cherry Creek Bridge on Sugar Lake
Road was completed and the bridge opened for traffic by late fall. Fortune Creek
Bridge on Fortune Road was extensively repaired, including new abutments and
deck system. Daly and Creighton Creek bridges on Creighton Valley Road, both
pile trestles, were reconstructed by district forces. Twelve district bridges were repainted.
Buildings
Newly renovated office facilities for the Department of Highways in the Vernon
Courthouse were completed in September 1971. Construction of the new Vernon
garage and maintenance facilities was commenced by the Department of Public
Works on the new 9.4-acre site in North Vernon. The facilities are scheduled for
occupancy by the early summer of 1972. An electrical contract to improve the
facilities at the Department of Highways yard at Lumby was completed.
Kelowna District
Roads
Maintenance—There were 1,200 new houses built in the unincorporated area
within a 5-mile radius of the City of Kelowna during 1971. A further 1,600 new
houses are expected to be built in 1972. This increased urban population has created
increased maintenance such as ditching, patching, signing, and traffic control similar
to a municipal function.
Extruded-concrete curbing was placed on Highway 97, east of Kelowna for
3 miles, and there are further plans to place centre-highway lighting and additional
traffic-control signals.
As well as attending to normal maintenance functions, crews were busy preparing approximately 24 miles of road for hotmix paving.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  113
Reconstruction—One-half mile of Lakeshore Road and one-half mile of Glen-
more Road were rebuilt prior to paving; 1 mile of Big White road was relocated and
constructed; 2.94 miles of side roads were reconstructed; and 2.4 miles of Princeton
Avenue were reconstructed.
Paving—Jim Bailey Road, 0.8 mile paved.
Snow removal—Although there was an above-average snowfall, all roads were
kept in satisfactory driving condition.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained in satisfactory condition.
(Fuller Road, under 20 feet) was reconstructed.
Sawmill Creek Bridge
McBride District
Roads
Maintenance—Crews from both Tete Jaune and Blue River depots spent considerable time paving new bridge approaches along Yellowhead South Highway 5
and the Tete Jaune crews constructed and paved bridge approaches on Yellowhead
Highway 16 between Tete Jaune and the Alberta boundary.
Roads gravelled included 1.9 miles of Mountainview Road, 0.8 mile of the
Old Tete Jaune Road, and 0.8 mile of McBride East Road.
Sand hauled into the Blue River yard in March was screened during the summer and used for winter sanding.
Five men were employed on the Winter Assistance Programme. These men
slashed about 5 miles of right-of-way along the Yellowhead Highway west of McBride and helped dismantle several old wooden detour bridges along Highways 5 and
16, including the Bailey detour bridge at Lempriere and performed other labouring
duties in assisting the regular crews.
Construction—New construction consisted of 9.3 miles of Brown Road and
a 0.7-mile link between the old and new Yellowhead South Highway 1 mile north
of Valemount.
Reconstructed were 0.1 mile of the Dore River Road, 0.1 mile of Mountain-
view Road, and 0.8 mile of McBride East.
Paving—18.6 miles were paved with hotmix asphalt in the Blue River area.
This consisted of 2.6 miles in Blue River, 2 miles in short sections between Blue
River and Avola, and 16 miles between McMurphy and Avola. The last two were
done under contract.
Buildings
Bulk-salt sheds were built at all three depots and an oil shed was completed
at the Tete Jaune depot. At Tete Jaune, construction was started on the new
10,000-square-foot shop.
Penticton District
Roads
Maintenance—Standard maintenance was carried out during the past year.
Numerous side roads were upgraded by minor reconstruction and gravelling. Dust-
layer was applied to 40 miles of orchard roads.
Winter started early and snowfalls in all areas broke previous records. The
recorded snowfall at Allison Pass on the Hope-Princeton Highway was 542 inches.
Due to the long closures on the Fraser Canyon section of British Columbia Highway
 C 114
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
1, abnormally heavy traffic was experienced on the Hope-Princeton and Merritt—
Princeton Highways. There were several delays on the Hope-Princeton Highway
due to slides and excessive traffic, but none of these closures exceeded 12 hours.
Winter maintenance was carried out in the district on a seven-day-a-week shift
basis. All main roads, other than the Hope-Princeton Highway, were kept open
at all times. However, due to heavy snowfalls and severe drifting conditions many
side roads were closed for occasional short periods.
Construction—Gravelling on 6.4 miles of truck lanes on the Hope-Princeton
Highway was completed. A 1.7-mile truck lane was constructed on the Waterman's
Hill section on Highway 97 at Okanagan Falls. Gravelling was also completed on
approximately 10.6 miles of constructed side roads. In preparation for hotplant-
mixed paving, 0.7 mile of Arterial Highway 496r, Tulameen Road to Princeton, was
reconstructed. Otherwise, reconstruction was in preparation of roads for asphalt
surfacing.
Surfacing—-After reconstruction, 16.5 miles of local roads were paved with
roadmixed asphalt.
Bridges
Redecking and reconstruction of bridges were carried out and, where feasible,
some were replaced by corrugated-metal culverts.
Floods
Despite the high flood potential, weather conditions were ideal and an orderly
run-off was experienced. Some minor roads in the Princeton area were flooded and
closed for short periods of time.
Government Buildings
Minor renovations were made to the Oliver, Keremeos, and Princeton shops.
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 the Okanagan Lake was very high and the maximum elevation was
nearly reached.
Normal channel and dyke maintenance was carried out and the previously
started reconstruction of the eroded channel between Okanagan and Skaha Lakes
was completed.   The stilling basin at Okanagan Falls was dredged.
Merritt District
Maintenance—The programme of brushing and improving rights-of-way was
continued throughout the year with more emphasis on curves to improve sight distance and considerable improvement to shoulders on British Columbia routes 1, 3,
5, and 8.
In the early hours of June 4, 1971, a slide occurred on Highway 12, 10 miles
north of Lytton. Three vehicles drove into the gaping hole in the highway and two
people lost their lives.
Winter came early and with it many additional problems due to excessive
snowfall. The canyon section of British Columbia Highway 1 fared reasonably
well until mid-January, and from January 19 to March 6 snowslides, blizzard con-

ditions, and drifting snow forced closure of the highway several times.    From
reports and records it was the worst winter experienced in this section since 1938.
At 9.30 p.m., Monday, March 6, 1972, a minor rock slide closed Highway 1
on Jackass Mountain and before this could be cleared a major slide came down at
1.30 a.m., March 7, closing the highway for four days. In all the slide totalled
approximately 25,000 cubic yards of rock. We are still cleaning up the rock face
as a result of the many faults that appeared after the slide.
During the aforementioned period the canyon section was closed because of
slides and heavy snow from 10.30 a.m., January 20, to 8 a.m., January 26. It was
closed again on February 8 because of 15 major snowslides, reopened at 5.30 p.m.
that day, and closed again Sunday, February 27, until 3 p.m., Tuesday, February
29, due to slides and heavy snowfall.
Snowfall throughout the district was much heavier than usual and in some areas
has set records.
Bridges
Two new timber bridges were constructed, one replaced a Bailey bridge installed several years ago by Trans-Mountain Oil Pipeline Co. Ltd. Major and
minor repairs were carried out by district bridge crew on many other structures.
Ferries
The North Bend ferry had a good year with only minor problems, and ferry
tolls were removed.   Lytton ferry also had a good year with only minor problems.
Lillooet District
Roads
Maintenance—-A comprehensive maintenance programme was carried out in
the Clinton area, with particular attention paid to the roads in the vicinity of Green
Lake. The North Bonaparte Road was upgraded and realigned along with several
miles of the Green Lake Road along the north shore of the lake. This fast-growing
area is approximately 30 miles northeast of Clinton. Considerable grading was
also done on the Kelly Lake Road due west of Clinton.
Apart from over-all maintenance, Ashcroft area crews were kept busy realigning and ditching the Loon Lake Road and the Back Valley Road which lies due
east of Cache Creek.
Lillooet crews cleaned out slide areas and widened catch roads along with
considerable improvements in realigning the Texas Creek Road lying south of
Lillooet on the west bank of the Fraser River.
Goldbridge area crews also cleared slide areas and regravelled and widened
roads in the vicinity of Gun and Tyaughton Lakes, as well as generally upgrading
roads in the Seton Portage area.
Construction and surfacing—Under Project S-2171, 17 miles of widening and
realigning were carried out on the Cariboo Highway from the Loon Lake turn-off,
11 miles south of Clinton, to Lookout, 6 miles north of Clinton, thus converting some
long, hilly two-lane sections to much-needed truck lanes.
Project S-2247 saw similar reconstruction of truck lanes on the first 3 miles
of heavy grade on the Highland Valley Road.
A further 3.5 miles of the Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway were rebuilt on a
new grade. This completes the rebuilding of some 16 miles of this road from the
Cariboo Highway as far as Crown Lakes Camp-site.    Four miles of this highway
 C 116
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
were pulvimixed at the Lillooet end. The Texas Creek Road lying southwest of
Lillooet was given 3 miles of blademix paving, also the main access road at Seton
Portage was blademixed for a further 2.5 miles. Considerable patching was carried
out on the Lillooet-Lytton Road.
Snow removal—This being a record snowfall year for most of the Lillooet
District, considerable overtime and double shifting were done by all district crews.
The Bralorne Road was closed several different times by snowslides. On two occasions various pieces of snow-removal equipment were buried under these slides,
fortunately without harm to the operators. Large amounts of chemicals were used
to keep the main routes open owing to the heavy snowfalls.
Bridges
Two new bridges were completed in the Lillooet District—a 72-foot span over
the Seton Creek at Seton Portage built with salvaged steel girders from Sicamous
Narrows and a 60-foot log-stringer span over Texas Creek. This bridge has metal
binwall abutments, a method being used with considerable success in the Lillooet
District.
Other Lillooet District bridges were maintained as and where required.
Ferries
The reaction ferry at Big Bar was in service throughout the summer and fall
months, mainly used by ranchers and hunters. A cage was used during the winter
months while general maintenance was carried out on the ferry.
Williams Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all district and main
roads, as weather conditions were normal in most areas. Some extra-heavy snowfalls were recorded, but gradual run-off prevented major problems.
Subdivision developments decreased slightly from the previous year, but still
continued at a rapid pace.
Widening and strengthening of a 6.7-mile section of the Cariboo Highway were
completed. Right-of-way brush-spraying was completed also on this highway
between Mile 76 and 99.
An extensive slashing programme was carried out on major side roads.
Construction—Major construction projects were completed on the Chilcotin,
Likely, Canim Lake, Horse Lake, and Horsefly Roads, with reconstruction of the
Morrison Meadow and Nimpo Lake North Roads. A Department of Lands subdivision of 2.5 miles was undertaken on Sulphurous Lake. Major gravelling was
completed on 45.3 miles of side roads. Dust-layer was applied to 26.4 miles of
roadway in built-up areas throughout the district.
Paving—Pulvimix laying was extended another 5 miles on the Canim Lake
Road. Five miles were remixed on the Horsefly Road and 4 miles of recap were
applied to the Soda Creek Road through Glendale.
Bridges
Two larger structures were completed during the year on Bridge Creek and
the Chilcotin River and eight smaller bridges replaced. These were Foot of Hill,
Gravel Creek, Kleena Kleene 1, Lingfield, Rat Creek, Snowshoe, Walker, and
Squaw Creek.

Nelson, Rossland, Grand Forks, New Denver, Cranbrook, Fernie, Golden,
and Revelstoke Highway Districts
Nelson District
Roads
Maintenance—Spring run-off was normal and no unusual flood problems were
experienced. An early start was made on pavement patching, particularly on
Highway 3a west of Nelson, where pavement break-up was severe. Later in the
summer, plantmix pavement was laid on 7 miles immediately west of Nelson and
2 miles at South Slocan under contract. Dust control was carried out on 70 miles
of road during the summer, using Bunker B or medium curing asphalt. Four miles
of the Emerald Road were treated very successfully with liquid calcium chloride.
Very limited use was made of chemicals for brush control, but 20 miles of main
and secondary road were slashed, 12 miles of this with a grader-mounted power
rotary cutter. The programme of development of roadside rest areas was continued,
and during the summer crews were assigned to service and maintain these sites.
Signing and grading of roads were carried out as required. Two screening plants
were operated throughout the summer and fall preparing material for pulvimix and
sealcoating, followed by the provision of sand for winter maintenance. Much of
the sand for winter was mixed with salt while being screened.
Construction—Reconstruction of the Arrow Creek to Creston section of Highway 3 was completed and the last 1.5 miles pulvimixed by district forces. The
Sanca-Boswell project on Highway 3a also continued and 3.4 miles were pulvimixed. During the winter of 1971/72 the heavy rock work was completed to
Akokli Creek. Two miles of the Riondel Road were pulvimixed during the summer. Some 4.75 miles of the Euphrates to Ymir section of Highway 6 and 6.9
miles of Highway 3, Goat River to Kidd Creek section, were sealcoated. In addition,
several sections of the west side of the Salmo-Creston were brought back up to
grade with paver laid, plantmixed asphalt. Two and one-half miles of secondary
road were constructed on new routes and 13.8 miles of existing road were upgraded
by ditching and gravelling; 6.2 miles of secondary road were paved.
Snow removal—The winter was unusually long, continuing into April of 1972.
Snowfall was normal on the Salmo-Creston Summit but well above normal on the
lower levels. Numerous small slides occurred on the Salmo-Creston, but there
were no major road closures. A seven-day double shift was again used for maintenance crews. Heavy quantities of salt and sand were used and road conditions
were generally good throughout the winter.
Bridges
In addition to general maintenance of all bridges, the following work was
carried out:
Duhamel Creek: The existing log-stringer bridge was replaced by a concrete and steel structure.   The wooden culvert in the overflow channel was also replaced by a concrete structure.
Narrows Creek:  The log-stringer bridge was replaced by an 84-inch
multiplate pipe.
Erie Overpass: A new plywood deck was laid on the laminations and
covered with asphalt plank.
 18
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
Marsden: A new log-stringer bridge was built over Sproule Creek.
Creston-Rykerts: A sidewalk was constructed on the upstream side of the
Howe Truss over the Goat River.
Barrett Creek: The Bailey bridge was removed after completion of the
permanent bridge on the new highway alignment.
Ferries
The Kootenay Lake, Harrop-Longbeach, and Glade ferries operated throughout the year and the West Creston ferry from April 15 to October 31. Two ferries
operated on the Kootenay Lake from late May to early September. Traffic continues to increase on this route and waits up to five hours were experienced by
motorists during peak periods. Renewal of the long wing of the Balfour landing
continued in late 1971. In February 1972 a major overhaul of MV Anscomb was
commenced under contract, the work to be completed in May, including new
engines and modifications. Work also includes provision of sanitary sewer systems
with shore disposal areas for both ferries.
Buildings
The 30 by 40-foot metal building earlier moved to the Creston yard was partitioned, insulated, sheeted, and painted inside. A salt silo was constructed in the
lower Creston yard.
Rossland District
Roads
Maintenance—The summer maintenance requirements exceeded the time available and the number of employees that could be assigned to such work. Roadside
maintenance and spring clean-up has become a continuing and increasingly time-
consuming part of the work. Hopefully the new highway-type vacuum sweeper
recently acquired will greatly reduce the number of man-hours required for the
road-surface clearing in built-up areas.
Many more "telespar" signposts were installed and their effectiveness on the
higher levels was evident. "Christianson"-type davit posts were purchased and will
be installed at select locations, but only in conjunction with direction signing as they
are costly to purchase and install.
One new roadside rest area was completed with preparatory work undertaken
at two other locations.
The district installed lighting at the Rivervale to Oasis junctions with Highway
3 and Headquarters crews installed lighting at the Annable intersection in Warfield
and traffic lights at Pine and Victoria in the City of Trail. District also poured
6,000 lineal feet of no-post guard-rail.
Winter maintenance was aided significantly by the addition of salt to the sand
at the time of screening and the hiring of additional men under a flexible shift
system.
The district performed all its activities without a time-loss accident, and during
the last nine months there were no reportable accidents.
Bridges
Timber stringers were replaced by steel on the Waneta Bridge, concrete abutments and retaining-walls were poured, and conventional timber flooring and hand-
 REGIONAL REPORTS C  119
rails provided. Major repair was undertaken on the piers of the Castlegar Overhead by district forces and the concrete deck refinished by Headquarters personnel.
Many small timber bridges received maintenance of varying degrees.
Ferries
The 18-hour daily operation continued on the Castlegar ferry, but the hydraulic-
ally controlled aprons have not operated satisfactorily and have created traffic-
control problems since the discontinuance of the chain barriers at the ends of the
ferry ramps. However, modifications are planned for the hydraulic cylinders, and
radio-controlled barriers were designed and are being installed in an endeavour to
solve the traffic problems. The day-to-day operation of the ferry appears routine,
but this ferry carried 356,560 vehicles during the fiscal year as well as 748,058
persons. Information at hand indicates this ferry carries more vehicles than any
other within the Department.
Buildings
The development of the Kinnaird yard continued, partly by utilizing the
material excavated for winter ice-control. New lights were ordered for the shop
area. New lighting was installed in the Rossland yard together with the pouring of
concrete aprons in front of the shop and the construction of a concrete grease rack.
Chain-link fence was built around the Fruitvale shop and a major clean-up undertaken.
Grand Forks District
Roads
Maintenance—The extra labour available under the Winter Assistance Programme in 1970 was used in the spring of 1971 to clear and clean rights-of-way.
Emphasis was on the placement of delineators and furbishing of right-of-way on
British Columbia Highway 3.
Construction—Sandsealing was done on 12 miles of area roads, 2.2 miles on
the Brown Creek road was pulvimixed, and two short stretches on Highway 33
were mixed during inclement weather. The Phoenix-Greenwood Road was gravelled and treated with an inverted prime using Granby waste rock crushed to our
specifications for %-inch crush. The Phoenix road intersection revision was constructed to rough grade on Highway 3.
Snow removal—Service was improved by the use of new underbody blades and
body sand units.
Bridges
Three small bridges were eliminated by the installation of large culverts—
Beaverdell, July Creek, and Jewel Lake.
No-post guard-rail was placed on all major bridge approaches. The deck of
the Yale Bridge at Grand Forks was resurfaced by a Headquarters crew assisted by
the local bridge crew.   Bridge rails were painted on several bridges.
Buildings
All the Grand Forks shop buildings were painted inside and out by the district
crews, and the interiors of the Greenwood, Rock Creek, and Beaverdell shops were
painted.
 C 120
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
New Denver District
Roads
Maintenance—The district experienced a very busy maintenance programme
over the past year. Considerable asphalt patching was carried out on Highway 6
and a brush and spray programme was continued on all district main roads. Soil
sterilant was applied to the shoulders of Highway 6 from Slocan Park to Fauquier.
All signs in the district were checked and new ones ordered to replace those damaged and worn out.   All culverts in the district were catalogued and marked.
Approaches for a temporary bridge were constructed at New Denver and considerable riprap was placed to protect the foundations of the new bridge at Halfway
River on Highway 23.
Approximately 2,000 lineal feet of 10-inch perforated metal pipe was installed
along the ditch-line of Highway 6 north of Burton.
Construction—Work was continued on the Kaslo—New Denver Highway and
it is expected that 8 to 10 miles will be ready for paving in 1972/73.
Construction was continued north of Nakusp on Galena Bay—Nakusp Highway
23 with considerable rock work involved.   Approximately 2 miles were completed.
Several miles of road were reconstructed in the Brouse Loop and Glenbank
areas south of Nakusp, and 1 mile of reconstruction completed in the Winlaw area.
The district hauled crushed gravel for approximately 6.5 miles of road, which
was later pulvimixed by the Paving Branch, which also road-mixed 4.5 miles with
its own forces and sealcoated 2.5 miles.
Rest areas were constructed at Lemon Creek, Summit Lake, and Bear Lake.
Some improvements were made to the Slocan Lookout rest area.
Snow removal—An exceptionally heavy snowfall was experienced in all parts
of the district. Chemicals and sand were used jointly in this maintenance programme and two shifts were employed on a seven-day week basis from December
to the middle of March.
Bridges
Major repairs were made to Perrys Bridge at Perrys Siding and Rosebery
Bridge on Highway 6. A temporary bridge was constructed at Passmore, while the
district crews erected 240 feet of Bailey bridge to replace the old Howe truss.
The Bailey bridge at Halfway River was relocated upstream for detour purposes to make room for the construction of a new crossing.
The founda-
The New Denver
Buildings
A new foreman's office and assembly room were built at Nakusp
tions were laid for a three-bay extension to the equipment shed,
shop was painted.
Ferries
Two new motors were installed in the MV Needles—and the propulsion units
were overhauled in the New Denver shop.
Heating cables were installed in the concrete ferry ramps by district forces
and further work will be continued during the coming year.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads, including pavement patching.    It was normal on most sections, but on Highway 3
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  121
near Tokay and from Cranbrook Overhead to Fort Steele junction grading was
normal but ditching on the Moyie Hills section was above normal. Old wooden
culverts on side roads were replaced and additional culverts installed. Brush-
cutting on main highways and side roads was accomplished through the Winter
Assistance Programme. Side roads were widened and gravelled as necessary when
men and equipment were available. Oiling or calcium chloride was applied on side
roads in front of residences and on an 8-mile section of the Wardner-Fort Steele
Road to facilitate travel on this gravel road. Frost heaving was above normal.
Maintenance and installation of existing and new signs was a continual job for most
of the year. Additional islands were constructed on main roads for signs. Washouts were filled and all culverts checked and cleaned out. Crews manufactured
6,450 feet of concrete no-post guard-rail, plus 60 bridge ends (480 feet) and 54
bullnose ends (216 feet).
Snow removal—There was above-average snowfall in all areas of the district.
More men were employed on winter shift work to keep roads open and passable.
This resulted in additional sanding requirements. Temperatures were not as low as
previous years, which permitted the use of more chemicals to keep the paved surfaces
as bare as possible. All roads were kept open with very little or no delays. Winter
service was maintained on two eight-hour shifts, seven days a week, in all areas
from December 1, 1971, to February 29, 1972.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained as required and inspections made. All structures
were washed off and bridge railings replaced or repaired and driftwood removed
during the high-water periods. Cleaning and straightening of some stream channels
to prevent washout during high water was accomplished. Maintenance was limited
because the crew was required to work on deck resurfacing and construction of the
new bridge over Gold Creek. There numerous problems occurred and as a result
the bridge is still not complete. The general maintenance of bridges is therefore
incomplete due to this extra work being placed on the crew. One serious accident
occurred in June to an employee of the bridge crew. He is still convalescing from
injuries sustained when a vehicle ran through a barricade and struck him.
Buildings
Minor exterior painting was performed. The interior of the west four bays of
Cranbrook Shop was painted. Additional flood lights were installed at the Cranbrook Yard. New wiring was installed to the ramp and oil-storage shed at Yahk.
A new heater was installed in the oil storage shed at Cranbrook.
Fernie District
Roads
Maintenance—Minor improvements were completed on several miles of road
in the Jaffray area, with emphasis on recreational lake roads.
Calcium chloride and bunker oil were used only moderately as a dust palliative
on many district roads.
Construction—Shouldering, ditching, and delineation were carried out on
Highway 3. The Elk Valley Highway received 9.8 miles of roadmix paving,
adjacent to Elkford, applied by Headquarters paving crews. An additional 2.3
miles were reconstructed by district forces.
 C 122
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
The Sparwood bypass on Highway 3 was only 25 per cent completed due to
unexpected soil and water problems.
Snow removal—An exceptionally severe winter with low temperatures, heavy
snowfall, and blizzard conditions resulted in several highway closures during the
winter, followed by considerable pavement damage, fill failures, and slide situations
in the spring.
Bridges
Bridge painting by the regional paint crew was carried out within the district
and some concrete overlay work on bridge decks carried out under contract.
Yards
A new yard-site was acquired for Fernie with construction scheduled for 1972.
Negotiations were begun to acquire yard-site at Sparwood and Elkford.
Golden District
Roads
Maintenance—Extensive ditching, pavement patching, clearance of rock slides,
shouldering, replacement of guard-rails, renewal and repairing of signs, vegetation
control, flood control on major creeks, cleaning and replacing culverts where necessary, and crack-filling were carried out on the two major routes, British Columbia
Highway 1 and Highway 93-95. Turn slots and a four-way traffic light were installed at the Radium Hot Springs junction.
The district experienced a very difficult winter with frequent snowfalls which
totalled from 202 to 390 inches. There was not the usual December or January
thaw and icing, therefore, was not a major problem. But a situation developed
whereby the spring thaw came in March and snowslides were numerous and frequent in the Kicking Horse Canyon section of the highway. There were as many
as 25 slides a day, varying from 50 feet to 500 feet in length and 5 feet to 35 feet in
depth. Fortunately no one was injured, though one or two vehicles were caught
on the fringes. The continual slides forced closure of the highway for four days
from March 11 to March 14, inclusive, following which it was opened to single-lane
traffic under pilot-car control for two days. Two hired loaders and tandem trucks
were required to haul the snow away when working above the railway. Double
shifting was carried out from early in November until the third week in March, with
call-out of additional personnel and equipment as required due to storms.
Sand was screened and mixed with salt at Harrogate, Golden, Windermere,
Donald, Toby Creek, and Canal Flats pits.
Roads to the three ski hills (Fairmont, Panorama, and Mount Seven) were
maintained in excellent condition.
District crews installed 1 mile of concrete no-post guard-rail on the approaches
to the Golden North Overhead, constructed the traffic islands, and posted the
required signs. A rest area was constructed adjacent to Columbia Lake, 9 miles
north of Canal Flats on Highway 93-95.
Construction—A total of 20.2 miles of side roads was improved, ditched, and
gravelled, 14.3 miles of Westside Road and Toby Creek Road were reconstructed,
and 9 miles of the Westside Road were pulvimixed by the regional crew. Baillie
Grohman Avenue was constructed and gravelled to standard (1 mile). A new
gravel pit was stripped and prepared 7 miles west of Athalmer on the Toby Creek
Road to provide an excellent source of sand.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  123
Stripping and preparation were carried out in the Golden upper yard for construction of the new shop and storage shed.
Lake Street was constructed and a portion of Rocky Mountain Avenue constructed and roadmixed.
A 24-foot standard steel rail cattle guard was installed on the Thunder Hill
Road approach to Highway 93-95.
Bridges
An 80-foot glulam span and 323 feet of pile trestle spans were constructed at
the Canyon Creek crossing of the Columbia River. The width of the deck was
increased from 14 to 28 feet, and a 4-foot-wide sidewalk was installed on the downstream side of the structure. The old 70-foot King truss and pile trestle were
removed and burned.
Extensive repairs were carried out on 10 other timber structures. Bridge
railings on Donald Bridge, damaged by vehicles, were replaced. Hunter Creek
Bridge was resurfaced.
The Kicking Horse Bridge clearance was increased from 14 feet 3 inches to
17 feet by removal of top cross bracings.
A sump pump settling-well was constructed at the Kicking Horse Dyke to
empty the 21 -inch force main when the main pumps shut off. The pump and
controls will be installed in May.
Revelstoke District
Roads
Maintenance—During the past year, special emphasis was placed on right-of-
way improvements with completion of 20.7 miles of brushing on British Columbia
Highway 1, 2 miles of brushing on Revelstoke-Mica Creek Highway, and 12 miles
of right-of-way clean-up on Revelstoke—Nakusp Highway prior to hydroseeding.
Shoulder widening was carried out for 2 miles on the Revelstoke-Nakusp
Highway. Slope widening was completed at Clanwilliam, Summit Lake, and Nineteen Mile Overhead on British Columbia Highway 1 to provide an improved sight
distance.
Construction—One-half mile of reconstruction and widening was completed
on the Balfour-Kaslo-Galena Bay Highway. Construction of Blanket Creek Park
access is 60 per cent completed and various side roads and subdivision roads were
improved by widening, ditching, gravelling, and roadmix paving.
At Shelter Bay ferry landing, auxiliary lanes were constructed with cement-
treated base, construction of the auxiliary winch pit and rail footings were completed, the haul-back winch installed, and a building erected over the main winch.
Snow removal—A record snowfall, averaging 425 inches, resulted in the use
of above-average amounts of sand and salt. Snowslides and blizzard conditions
caused several road closures of British Columbia Highway 1, Revelstoke-Mica
Creek Highway, and Balfour-Kaslo-Galena Bay Highway. The unusual conditions
taxed our crews to the limit and only exceptional efforts on their part kept public
inconvenience to a minimum.
Bridges
The main cable was repaired on Columbia River suspension bridge.
Post and railing repairs were required on Albert Canyon East and Albert
Canyon West Bridges.
Deck repairs were made to Greely Creek Bridge and Payne Creek Bridge.
 C 124 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
Buildings
A sand storage shed was constructed at 50 Mile maintenance depot. Construction of a concrete floor was completed in the Trout Lake equipment shed and
the Trout Lake yard area fenced. Fences were also erected at Galena Bay and
Shelter Bay ferry terminals.
Ferries
The MV Galena was drydocked for inspection from June 2, 1971, to June 11,
1971. The MV Lardeau maintained regular service during this period. Otherwise,
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—The Cariboo Highway south of Quesnel required repairs to
frost boils and the levelling of long stretches which had been repaired the previous
year. Extensive levelling was also carried out on Highway 97 north of Quesnel in
the Strathnaver and Hixon areas.
Considerable washout repairs were necessary to a large number of side roads
due to a heavy run-off in the smaller creeks in the district.
Brush was cut and sprayed with herbicide on sections along the paved side
roads not completed in the 1969/70 programme. Shoulder sterilant was sprayed
on Highway 97 from Quesnel for 26 miles south.
Oil as a dust palliative was distributed on 29.7 miles of residential streets and
the more heavily travelled rural roads. Calcium chloride was applied in liquid
form to 10 miles of the Barkerville Road.
All guard-rail was repainted and realigned on Highway 97. The maintenance
yard was moved from the old to the new maintenance establishment near the
airport at Quesnel.
Construction — Reconstruction of the Barkerville Road continued with 13.4
miles completed and ready for crushed gravel and a further 8 miles cleared.
Nazko and Blackwater roads, along with other major side roads, were reconstructed to give a total reconstructed length of 24.7 miles plus a further 18 miles
of clearing, mostly on Nazko and Blackwater Roads. The paved portions of the
Fraser arterial, Blackwater, Barkerville, and Highway 97 arterial north of Quesnel
were recapped with pavement, a total of 24 miles.
Traffic islands were built at Two Mile Flat and Barkerville Road junctions
with Highway 97.
Repairs were started on a large slide 1 mile north of Cinema on Highway 97.
Bridges and Ferries
A new bridge was built over Jack of Clubs Creek and Williams Creek Bridge 3
was reconstructed. Whittier Creek Bridge was replaced with a 13-foot-diameter
culvert.
Gravelle Bridge was built over the Quesnel River to replace the Gravelle ferry.
A cold-dry storage building was built in the new Quesnel yard-site.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C  125
Prince George District
Roads
Maintenance—No major problems were encountered in the 1971 spring breakup. Spring flooding caused some shoulder damage on Yellowhead Highway 16
East, but no road closure or pavement cutting was involved.
Approximately 14 miles of major side roads were surfaced with grader-laid
plantmix S-C 5 asphalt pavement.
Cold asphalt roadmix, totalling 2.67 miles, was laid on side roads.
Portions of the John Hart-Peace River Highway were grader patched with
regional plantmix material, eliminating some rough and broken sections of pavement.
On local roads, 74,000 gallons of dust palliative (bunker oil) were laid.
Six miles of local roads were upgraded by district maintenance crews.
Day-labour projects reconstructed 9.5 miles of forest access and main feeder
roads.
The Dome, Ptarmigan, and Slim Creek Bridges on Yellowhead Highway 16
East were opened to traffic in July and the Bailey bridges removed. The approaches
to these bridges were reshaped and cold mix, grader-laid asphalt applied.
Six small bridges were removed and replaced with culverts.
The winter's excessive snowfall and frequent high winds caused some problems
on local feeder roads with hard-packed drifts.
Yellowhead Highway 16 East was closed for one afternoon due to poor visibility from drifting snow.
The John Hart-Peace River Highway in the Pine Pass area had some snow-
slides causing road closures up to 24 hours. The large transport traffic in the Pine
Pass was limited at times due to drifting and poor visibility.
Pouce Coupe District
Roads
Maintenance—Winter maintenance was plagued with below-normal temperatures and above-normal snowfall, wind, and drifting conditions.
The district was hard pressed to keep open all 1,190 miles of school bus routes
along with regular winter maintenance.
The 1971 construction season was shortened because of wet weather, but the
district was able to complete most projects.
Approximately 130 miles of weed and brush control and 110 miles of brush
mowing within rights-of-way was completed.
Dust control was carried out on approximately 26 miles of minor roads
through the use of "Decant" oil.
The pavement patching programme was quite extensive, which solved a number of problems during spring break-up.
Construction—The Pouce Coupe River crossing on the Spirit River Road was
90 per cent completed.
The Arras to Progress section was 80 per cent completed and Tremblay Creek
culvert was installed.
The district upgraded, gravelled, and roadmixed 10.5 miles of feeder roads into
Dawson Creek and constructed 32 miles of road and upgraded and gravelled approximately 95 miles of farm settlement roads.
Crews installed 2 by 50 by 12-foot extensions on the low-level Dawson Creek
culvert and the road was realigned.
 C 126 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
The district crushed 170,000 tons of gravel by contract and the Department
crusher did 50,000 tons at the Hydro pit at Hudson Hope.
Bridges
Three new bridges were constructed, two reconstructed, and 18 repaired.
Ferries
The Clayhurst ferry operated through the summer and fall until January 8,
1972.   An ice crossing was constructed and in use during the winter.
Fort St. John District
Roads
Maintenance—The 1971 spring break-up was easier than usual and consequently all roads dried quickly with little surface damage. Road restrictions were
required, however, and were in effect between April 8 and May 20, 1971. After
June 15, heavy rains prevailed, causing considerable flood damage, erosion, and
making dirt roads slippery or rough. Gravel roads were affected less. Crack-
filling was carried out over 40 miles of paved roads and minor pavement patching
was also completed before freeze-up.
The winter of 1971/72 was near normal in temperature and snowfall. However, continual high winds caused severe snow-drifting in all sections of this district,
putting a considerable strain on crews and equipment. Winter maintenance was
at a high standard and all paved roads, with little exception, kept free of snow.
Construction—Construction commenced in April and, as a result of favourable
weather, 5.4 miles of road were constructed before spring break-up. Immediately
after, other projects commenced, and in spite of an unusually wet summer the district completed 45.1 miles of major construction or reconstruction and 141.6 miles
of various improvements.
For the first time, cement-treated base and pulvimix were used in surfacing of
roads in this district. Wet weather interrupted the projects and made it difficult to
maintain a desired standard. However, 12.25 miles of cement-treated base were
constructed and 12.7 miles of pulvimix (7.2 miles over the cement-treated base).
In addition, 10.1 miles of pulvimix and 25 miles of asphalt sealcoat were constructed on the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway.
Bridges
The district bridge crew constructed three bridges, totalling 424 lineal feet, on
the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway, and completed 100 lineal feet on one bridge
and 50 per cent of another 176-foot bridge in the Fort St. John area.
The crew also placed a 1,200-foot timber deck and fence on the PGE Railway
bridge over the Fort Nelson River. The bridge is now being used by vehicular
traffic. In addition, maintenance and flood damage repair work were carried out
on 20 district bridges. All bridges on the Cassiar-Watson Lake Highway were
upgraded and are now capable of carrying the loadings required by Cassiar Asbestos
Corporation.
The Fort Nelson Bridge over the Fort Nelson River was lost on June 17 as a
result of extreme high water and driftwood. Due to very heavy rains, together with
melting snow in the mountains, the water rose over the deck of the bridge in 12
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 127
hours, causing extensive accumulation of driftwood on the river.   The pressure of
wood and water finally pushed the 780-foot Bailey bridge from the piers.
During this same period, considerable damage also occurred to bridges along
the Beatton River and Blueberry River watersheds.
Ferries
The Stikine ferry was operational between May 18 and October 29, 1971,
with only short interruptions. An ice bridge was used by traffic during the winter
months.
The district also provided ferry service over the Fort Nelson River to establish
a temporary vehicle-crossing after the Fort Nelson Bridge had been destroyed. This
service was maintained between August 1 and October 31, 1971.
Buildings and Grounds
The regional carpenter and the district bridge crew constructed a salt shed near
the Department's gravel pit at Taylor. The structure has a paved floor, pile and
timber walls, and a frame roof.
Heating and electrical wiring were provided at the Prespatou Maintenance
Shop and the electrical system was upgraded at the Good Hope Lake Maintenance
Camp.
A water well was dug at Dease Lake and a start was made on the water-
distribution system before freeze-up.
Vanderhoof District
Roads
Maintenance—The "Do-Mor" elevating grader was again put to good use as
district crews high-graded and gravelled 4 miles of the Sinkut Lake Road and 2
miles of the Engen Road. Roadside rest stops were constructed at the Stuart River
Bridge and at Dry William Lake, both pleasant and popular sites.
Contracts were awarded for brush control over 25 miles of Yellowhead Highway 16 right-of-way and for 15,000 tons of hotmix patching material, machine laid
over a total of 1.5 miles of highway. The winter works crew completed several
outstanding burning projects.
Construction—Reconstruction included 2.2 miles on the Pinchi Road, 2.5
miles on the Germansen Road, 2.2 miles on the Fawcett Road, 3.2 miles on the
Sturgeon Point Road, and 1 mile on the Enns Road. On the Stones Bay Road, 1.2
miles were reconstructed and included in the project which completed the paving
of Highway 27 to Fort St. James. Two miles of road to Takla Development were
taken over and paved.
District crews pulvimixed 2 miles of the Nautley Road and 2.4 miles of road
in Fort Fraser Townsite.
One mile of road was constructed for a Crown subdivision south of Vanderhoof, and crushed gravel was hauled onto 6 miles of the Germansen Road.
Snow removal—Snowfall up to December 31, 1971, was approximately 20
per cent over the average total usually experienced for the full winter. The Department crews received favourable comments for their fine efforts.
Bridges
The Necoslie Bridge was redecked with new asphalt planks prior to paving of
Highway 27.   The Murray Creek and Nechako Bridge 1 received major replacement
 C 128 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
of piling, timber, truss members, and deck renewal. Damage to asphalt planks
used on the Nechako 2 and Necoslie Bridges is excessive, and is attributable to
extreme low temperatures and poor bonding.
Buildings
A salt shed was constructed at Fort St. James. The maintenance depot was
rewired, a new oil house constructed, and the property fenced, landscaped, and the
yard paved.
Mining-roads and Bridges
The extension of the Omineca Mining-road is now being supervised by the
Department of Mines. However, the Department of Highways is still supervising
the maintenance of approximately 200 miles of road. The district bridge crew
rebuilt 36 Mile, 50 Mile, 51 Mile, and Blair Bridges located on this road, which is
expected to reach McConnell Creek in 1972.
Burns Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—Many weak sections on Colleymount Road, Keefe's Landing
Road, Francois Lake East Road, Forestdale Canyon Road, and Crow Creek Road
were gravelled.
Several bad corners on Colleymount Road were straightened. The pull grader
ditched 5 miles of Keefe's Landing Road and 4 miles of Uncha Lake Road.
Right-of-way was cleared along Yellowhead Highway 16 and various sections
of side roads.
Roads in heavily populated areas were oiled for dust control.
Many grader patches were done on Highway 16 and extensive patching was
carried out on the 20-mile section west of Burns Lake.
Nine miles of sand-seal on Highway 16 and 7 miles of sand-seal on North
Francois were completed.
Picnic-sites at Topley and Tintagel were paved with grader-laid plantmix.
Construction—On the North Francois Road, a 3.9-mile section at Tchesinkut
Lake was completed.
Grading was completed and pit-run gravel 40 per cent completed on Section 2
(Topley North) (Mile 4.2 to Mile 12.8), Topley Landing Road. Clearing and
grubbing were completed on Section 3 (Mile 12.8 to Mile 18.8), and on Mile 18.2
to Mile 18.6, grading was completed.
A 15-foot multiplate at Tachek Creek was installed. Mile 0.4 to Mile 1.0 of
Keefe's Landing Road was reconstructed to pit-run gravel.
Snow removal—Unusually heavy snowfall at times made it difficult to keep all
side roads passable. Road-salting requirements were also high. Week-end and
night shifts were utilized during the winter.
Bridges
Approaches to Brewer Bridge were improved.
On Bulkley Bridge, the King truss was replaced by a 50-foot double-single
Bailey span.   Approach trestles were partly rebuilt.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  129
Ferries
MV Jacob Henkel operated all year except for the annual overhaul. During
this two-week period a barge service was in operation.
Piling for reconstruction of landing walls on the north side was completed.
The ferry approach fill on the north shore was extended and 80 per cent
completed.
Because of heavy ice in mid-channel, a propellor was lost and the ferry received
emergency repair.
The bubble system worked quite well at both north and south landings.
Smithers District
Roads
Maintenance—Ditching, gravelling, and culvert replacement were undertaken
by district crews on various side roads in the Smithers, Hazelton, and Telkwa areas.
A level crossing over the CNR at Quick was relocated to provide safe sight
distances, and 1.5 miles of road were built to connect Quick with the Walcott Road.
A fencing crew worked much of the summer to fulfil commitments made for
fencing during reconstruction of sections of the Yellowhead Highway 16 and the
Babine Lake cut-off.
District and paving survey crews worked part of the winter on preliminary
location surveys for side roads. Additional labourers were employed all winter on
slashing and clean-up projects.
Construction—The Babine Lake cut-off was extended for one-quarter mile to
Canyon Creek and paving of the reconstructed section was completed with district
crews roadmixing the asphalt. Roadmix was also laid on sections of the Tatlow
Road and Smithers frontage road. Wet weather in August and September confined
reconstruction of the Smithers—Babine Road to grubbing, stripping, and drainage
work.
Snow removal—Early winter conditions created excessive icing problems and
the use of sand and salt was much greater than normal. Snowfall through the
winter was close to the maximum on record. No significant warm spells occurred
and because of accumulated snow some difficulty was experienced in maintaining
reasonable widths on side roads used by logging-trucks. By making full use of the
night and week-end shifts, good travel conditions on Highway 16 were maintained.
Bridges
The district bridge crew completed the installation of 250 feet of single Bailey
bridge on driven-pile piers and abutments at Cedarvale to replace the old Miniskin-
isht Bridge. Work was scheduled so that the new bridge was ready before the ferry
was put into operation.
Overloaded trucks damaged the King truss over the Salmon River near Hazelton. Two main braces were cracked and the structure was replaced with 70 feet
of double-single Bailey bridge.
A number of small bridges were rebuilt and routine repairs to decks and railings carried out. The entire deck system of the Kispiox Bridge was replaced in
March 1972.
Ferries
Cedarvale ferry operated from May 5 to December 7 and an aerial basket was
used for pedestrian traffic through the winter.   The ferry was shut down on June
5
 C 130
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1971/72
24 due to extreme high water in the Skeena River and some shut-downs of short
duration were necessary in November due to fluctuations of the very low water
levels.   No increase in traffic was recorded.
Terrace District
Roads
Maintenance—A programme of upgrading residential and side roads by ditching and placing % -inch crushed gravel was continued through the summer and fall.
Major patching was carried out on the first 16 miles of Yellowhead Highway 16
west of Terrace.
Construction (day labour)—Yellowhead Highway 16, Terrace West—
(a) Major widening was carried out at sundry locations from Mile 16.5
to Mile 40.0.
(b) 65,000 lineal feet of concrete no-post guard-rail were produced by
contract and placed by district crews as grade divider between the
CNR and the highway.
(c) Additional riprap was quarried and placed along the Skeena River
as a continuing programme to protect the highway grade.
On Kalum Lake Road the Spring Creek Bridge was replaced by a 192-inch-
diameter structural steel plate culvert 218 feet long. This culvert was installed in
two sections to allow the heavy volume of logging traffic to continue without
interruption.
At the Terrace Bridge, Yellowhead Highway 16, a 200,000-cubic-yard fill was
placed on Ferry Island to become part of the proposed new crossing over the Skeena
River.
Minor day-labour work consisted of
(_.) shouldering and drainage improvement to 2 miles of the Terrace
arterial;
(b) completing construction and paving of the new entrance from Highway 25 to the Lakelse Lake area;
(c) surface improvement and paving of 0.5 mile of road in Thornhill;
(d) general improvements to the Kitimat Village Road.
Snow removal—Winter set in early and produced all-time record snowfalls to
a total of 600 inches (unofficial) at the Maintenance Camp, 36 miles west of
Terrace. Snowslides west of Terrace required the closure of this section of highway
22 times, from periods of a few hours to one closure of 12 days.
Bridges
The timber deck on the Terrace Bridge was replaced. This deck is 1,032 feet
long and 16 feet wide and replacement is required every two years because of the
heavy volume of traffic and wear on the planking by chains and tire studs. General
maintenance was carried out on 34 wooden structures west of Terrace.
Ferries
Normal service by reaction ferry and aerial car was maintained at Usk.
Buildings
A new cook and dining trailer was set in at our Salvus Camp, giving us a
complete trailer complex at the maintenance depot.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C  131
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance and repairs were carried out on all major
routes in the district, with special emphasis on Yellowhead Highway 16. Slashing,
weed-spraying, and shoulder maintenance continues on major routes.
Several roads on the Queen Charlotte Islands were gravelled and improved.
Additional right-of-way was seeded along the newly constructed Port Clements-
Masset Road.
Stewart area roads were upgraded and the right-of-way reslashed with heavy
equipment.
Construction—Construction continued on the Port Clements-Masset Road
and the Masset arterial. Queen Charlotte City and Port Clements roads were completed and ready for pavement.
Work was completed on the Port Edward-Capasco Road and work was
started on Project 2337, Green River, including bridge approaches.
Two major realignments were completed on the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway to avoid major slides and 7 miles of road were realigned and substantially
improved.   The Stewart arterial was completed and made ready for pavement.
Snow removal—Snowfall increased from 50 to 100 per cent along the north
coast and Stewart, with the Queen Charlotte Islands having the heaviest snowfall
for many years.
Shift systems were employed in all areas of the district. The Stewart-Watson
Lake road was open intermittently to Mile 40, but closed for long periods because
of heavy snowfalls and frequent mid-winter slides.
Bridges
The Bitter Creek Bridge at Stewart was rebuilt and major repairs made to the
Tlell Bridge on the Queen Charlotte Islands. All metal bridges were washed and
railings repainted. Several maintenance and repair jobs were completed on other
bridges in the district.
Ferries
Prince Rupert Ferry 1967 Limited and Misty Island Transportation Co.
Limited 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.
Yards and Buildings
Regional carpenter crews constructed a bulk-salt shed in Prince Rupert and
the bridge crew constructed a salt shed at Stewart. The Prince Rupert garage was
revamped to allow the fitting of overhead doors. Several buildings were painted
inside and outside.
