REPORT
FOR THE FISCAL YEAR
1972/73
*
3§t
Printed by K. M. MacDonald, Printer to the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty
in right of the Province of British Columbia.
1973
  To the Honourable Walter Stewart Owen, 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, 1973, in compliance with the
provisions of the Department of Highways Act.
Office of the Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, July 31, 1973.
GRAHAM R. LEA
Minister of Highways
 Victoria, B.C., August 1, 1973.
The Honourable Graham R. Lea,
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, 1973.
Quick-thawing conditions, which followed the exceptionally severe winter of
1971/72 when some of the heaviest snowfalls were recorded, caused widespread
flooding throughout the Province. Many wash-outs occurred, affecting bridges,
culverts, and grades, and the inevitable slides and rock-falls blocked some highways,
but road closures were kept to a minimum by the prompt action of Department
maintenance crews.
Expansion of the Motor Vessels Queen of Burnaby and Queen of New
Westminster now brings the total of the 200-car ferries to six. The growth pattern
of the British Columbia Ferry Service is quite compatible with the increase of
highway traffic volumes, approximating 10 per cent for Vancouver Island and the
Fraser Valley. There appears to be no abatement to this growth pattern, as advance
bookings alone for the Queen of Prince Rupert indicate a greater growth for the
current fiscal year.
Ideal weather conditions permitted a prolonged season, and the longest
construction year in the history of the Department was recorded.
A considerable number of valuable employees retired with very impressive
service records, among them being H. C. Davies, Senior Personnel Officer, 35
years' service, and the late W. M. Underwood, District Superintendent at Penticton,
who unfortunately died shortly after retirement with 34 years' service. Miss E.
McLaughlin, of the Accounts Branch, retired with 41 years' service.
The dedication of the Department personnel in the emergency situation in the
winter and spring, and during the heavy work load of the remainder of the year,
is noteworthy.

 HIGHWAYS REPORT
REPORT OF ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Victoria, B.C., July 31, 1973.
Sir: The fiscal year reports submitted by all branches of the Department of
Highways are hereby compiled into the Annual Report.
The fiscal year reported, commencing April 1, followed one of the most severe
winters on record in the history of the Province and the extremely heavy snow-melt
caused excessive flooding conditions in some areas. Bridges, culverts, and some
grades were lost through wash-outs, but road closures were infrequent and flooding
of main highways was minimal. Maintenance crews and bridge crews are to be
commended for their efforts in combating this potentially disastrous situation. The
cost of general maintenance on roads, bridges, and ferries totalled $44,020,742 for
the fiscal year.
The Motor Vessels Queen of Burnaby and Queen of New Westminster, both of
the British Columbia Ferries Division, were lengthened, making their capacity 200
cars. Traffic growth on all routes of the Ferries Division increased by 11 per cent,
whereas the traffic growth on the ferries under the jurisdiction of the Superintendent
of Ferries increased by 18 per cent over the previous year on all routes.
The Property Negotiations Branch completed 822 settlements for a total of
$6,480,011.29 expended on the acquisition of highway rights-of-way and other
properties required by the Department. A further $438,339.55 was expended on
legal surveys.
Provincial highways now total 27,460 miles, of which 4,031 miles are classified
as trunk highways and 2,141 miles as main highways. Within municipalities, there
is a total length of 1,158 miles of highways classified as arterial and secondary, which
includes 568 miles of trunk highways and 292 miles of main highways. The total
mileage of paved highways, both Provincial and classified, is 8,729 miles.
R. G. Harvey
Assistant Deputy Minister
REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
An extension of the maintenance management programme to incorporate all
foremen areas of the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island will ensure that the
maintenance of our highway system will be pursued with maximum efficiency and
economy. Over the next several years the programme will be expanded to cover all
regions of the Province.
 C 10 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Total cost of maintaining the 22,000 miles of road, 3,300 bridges, and 38
ferries was $44,020,742.
The winter of 1972/73, as a contrast to that of 1971/72, was one of the mildest
on record, with relatively low snowfall accumulations in most parts of the Province.
Because of the well-above-average snow-pack existing in all areas of the
Province in the spring of 1972, a major flood potential caused considerable concern
and eventually materialized in serious flooding at a number of locations throughout
the Province in June.
Serious flooding of low-lying areas occurred in the town of Golden when the
Columbia River rose to a record level.
Major flooding in other areas of the Kootenays occurred in the Lardeau-
Gerrard Valley at Athalmer, and on Highways 93 and 95, Wasa to Fort Steele
section.
The level of the North Thompson River at Kamloops exceeded that of the
1948 flood, and the suburban subdivision of Oak Hills, north of Kamloops, was
inundated when a boil-up behind the dyke eventually caused a serious breach in it.
Many other areas in the vicinity of Kamloops suffered some flooding.
Severe flooding was also experienced at Keremeos, Hedley, and Cawston,
where many farms and houses were affected when the Similkameen River rose to
record levels. Many roads and bridges in the area were severely damaged or washed
away.
There was also flooding at Osoyoos in the Okanagan and at Terrace on the
Yellowhead Highway 16 east of Prince George. A major threat of flooding to the
Fraser Valley area was averted, however.
DAY LABOUR
A major day-labour programme was successfully completed, and this included
considerable paving of local roads, involving district crews and equipment. Many
crushed-gravel contracts were called to supplement production by Department
crushers in connection with this programme.
ROADSIDE DEVELOPMENT
During the 1972/73 fiscal year it was possible to undertake additional hydro-
seeding projects, as a result of increasing to three the number of hydroseeding crews.
Over 4,000 acres were seeded and fertilized by Departmental forces, while 364
acres were seeded by contract. Our own crews also refertilized 1,877 acres of
previously seeded roadsides.
The vegetation management programme successfully treated approximately
7,600 acres through the application of herbicides. This figure included the sterilization of some 400 acres of road shoulder over a distance of 795 miles. Spray Applicators Training Courses were held in North Vancouver, Kamloops, and Prince
George in February and March 1973. Applicators from Region 3 attended the
course in Kamloops. The Department now has in excess of 60 licensed applicators
trained in the use of herbicides for vegetation management.
All herbicide programmes undertaken first had the approval of the B.C. Interdepartmental Pesticide Committee.
The roadside rest area programme continued, with the addition of some 40 new
sites.
 REPORT OF ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER C 11
The landscaping of the Patricia Bay Highway and the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal was completed. Two firms of consulting landscape architects were retained to
produce landscape plans for the Nelson Arterial Highway and the Upper Levels
Highway.
The Vernon District continued to produce equipment for roadside rest areas.
These included: 70 concrete picnic tables; 20 concrete toilet buildings; 57 fibreglass
planters; 231 fibreglass toilet stools, some of which were produced for the B.C.
Forest Service; 30 miscellaneous fibreglass moulds.
CENTRELINE AND PAVEMENT MARKINGS
During the summer of 1972, five centreline marking crews and two crosswalk
marking crews worked throughout the Province, but because of the change-over
from white to yellow for directional dividing lines and wet weather in the north half
of the Province there was some difficulty in completing the programme as planned,
particularly in the north.
The work completed accounted for 5,262 miles of yellow centreline marking,
1,787 miles of white-edge marking, 906 miles of prelining, and other miscellaneous
painting. Materials used were 97,562 gallons of yellow paint, 20,592 gallons of
white paint, and 708,250 pounds of glass bead.

 REPORT OF ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
C 15
ENGINEER-IN-TRAINING PROGRAMME
The Department has had an Engineer-in-Training Programme since 1958. The
programme was expanded in 1972 by the recruiting from university of six graduating
engineers.
The training programme involves rotation of the engineers to the various engineering and administrative branches of the Department over a 15-month period and
offers a diversified practical programme in all fields of highway engineering.
On completion of the programme, the engineers are placed in one of the
branches of the Department, based on need, considering each individual's interest
and aptitude.
TRAINING
The general training programmes of the Department have been expanded with
1,610 employees enrolled and receiving financial assistance. Many different courses
are included, and among them are: Air Brake Course, Principles of Supervision,
Industrial Relations, Human Relations and Communications, St. John First Aid,
and Flagman Instruction.
Progress has been made toward development of engineering, administrative,
and maintenance programmes for employees within the various branches of the
Department. The development of these courses has been a co-operative effort
between the Department and the British Columbia Institute of Technology. The
courses are designed to provide directly related material and to achieve recognition
of an accredited educational organization. One hundred employees are presently
enrolled in the Mathematical and Survey Courses.

 C 22 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Report of Communications Engineer
The mobile communications system was extended north from Terrace to Good
Hope Lake, so that the new Stewart-Cassiar Highway is now covered for local
communications and trunk connection to the Prince George control console. The
existing repeater at Bear Pass, north of Stewart, was connected to the system
through a repeater near Meziadin.
New repeaters were installed near Lytton and Allison Pass to cover critical
parts of the highway in those areas where the Department had experienced communications difficulties in the past.
Since the summer of 1972, the Communications Division has been concentrating on improving the existing communications system to alleviate interference
problems which have been affecting its operation.
The system in Region 3 is scheduled for major changes in the summer of
1973.
Many of our older mobile radio units are being replaced as they have surpassed their useful service life. The failure rates of these units are becoming un-
acceptably high, resulting in high maintenance costs and a lower level of service
to the Department.
The Communications Division has spent much of the year planning for a
major system change in Region 1, which is to occur in 1974. This region requires special attention because of its density of operation and proximity to large
numbers of internal and external interfering signals.
Statistical information relating to the communications system is being compiled in Victoria so that the preventive maintenance schedule can be improved.
This information will also be valuable in setting up a systematic equipment replacement programme.
C. G. Shearing

 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER C 23
REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER
Submitted herewith are the reports of the Director of Location, Senior Bridge
Engineer, Director of Construction, Senior Paving Engineer, and Senior Traffic
Engineer.
The total length of final location surveys completed during the year was 240.69
miles and the total length of office design, together with estimates, was 188.65
miles.
Design assignments on the Bridge Branch programme totalled 180.
Construction or reconstruction by contract totalled 113.4 miles completed,
of which 12.54 miles were four-lane construction. All highway relocations required for the Libby Dam reservoir, including the Kikomun Creek causeway, are
complete. The Highway 7 continuation from Agassiz to Hope is now open to
traffic, likewise the Stewart-Cassiar Highway 37 from New Hazelton to Watson
Lake on the Alaska Highway.
A total of 494 miles of highways was paved with plantmix asphalt which,
together with 109 miles of roadmix asphalt, totals 603 miles of pavement laid in the
fiscal year.   Sealcoat surface treatment was applied to 165 miles of road surface.
The construction of 29 new bridges was completed during the year, 46 were
under construction, and six under contract, but no work had been started. Both
the Mission Bridge crossing and Knight Street crossing of the Fraser River are
nearing completion as are the spectacular Cypress Creek and Nelson Creek Bridges
on the West Vancouver section of the Trans-Canada Highway 1. Approximately
one-third of the construction work on the Skeena River crossing at Terrace is
complete, and this bridge, when finished, will eliminate the existing single-lane
facility.
J. A. Dennison
Chief Highway Engineer
REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF HIGHWAY DESIGN AND SURVEYS
Highway design and surveys completed during the fiscal year are listed in the
following report, totalling 321.05 miles of preliminary design, 240.69 miles of
location line, and 188.65 miles of office designs and estimates.
Total expenditures amounted to $2,869,896.67, which is detailed as follows:

PRELIMINARY STUDY SECTION
The following has been undertaken by this section of the Branch between
April 1, 1972, and March 31, 1973:
Sufficient low-level photography was obtained to produce high-order mapping
of the Trans-Canada Highway between Victoria and Langford, from Bench Road
to Duncan, Westholme to the Chemainus River, between Chemainus and Ladysmith,
 C 24
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Ladysmith and Cassidy, Haliburton Street (in Nanaimo), and, on the Mainland,
the Upper Levels flooding, and from Mount Lehman to Clearbrook.
Low-level photography was used to produce high-order mapping of Highway
19 from Nanaimo to Lantzville, Lantzville to Northwest Bay Logging-road, Gold
River to Woss Camp, and of the Departure Bay ferry approach, the Crofton access,
and from Nanaimo to Silva Bay. Also, miscellaneous mapping was undertaken
from Clarke to Murray Street (in Port Moody), of Scott Road, Strachan Creek,
the George Massey Tunnel, the Annacis Island Crossing, and between Whitehouse
Corner and the United States Border and Springhill Drive to Mission Flats, and
the Penticton Bypass, and in Region 4 from Prince George to Chief Lake Road.
Low-order mapping was obtained from Nanaimo to Silva Bay, Langford
Lake to Shawnigan Lake, and the Mile 26 Slide on Highway 3, also the Nicola
Lake Slide.
Route projections of layouts were made on aerial photos or mapping for the
following: Gold River to Woss Camp, Nanaimo to Silva Bay, Haslam Creek to
Cedar Junction, Ladysmith to Cassidy, Westholme to Chemainus River, Victoria
to Langford, Langford Lake to Shawnigan Lake, Tolmie Avenue to Ralph Street,
Mount Lehman to Clearbrook, and the Vanderhoof Overpass.
As a prelude to final route selection through Boston Bar Creek, the Branch
has commenced a continuing study into avalanche occurrence and frequency. The
investigation is being carried out in conjunction with the B.C. Research Council;
the Hydrology Division of the Department of Lands, Forests, and Water Resources;
and the Atmospheric Environment Service of the Federal Government.

REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
The total expenditure of $27,497,786.25 on bridges and ferry terminals greatly
exceeded expenditures for any previous years, and the following reports of the
Bridge Construction Engineer and the Dock Engineer give details of the numerous
projects in progress over the year.
While some 40 per cent of the total expenditure was on the major Knight
Street and Mission Bridges, the balance was distributed over some additional 75
projects, many of which comprised several structures.

 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER C 33
Bridge Construction
Twenty-nine new bridges were completed in the 1972/73 fiscal year. On
March 31, 1973, 46 bridges were under construction and work had not commenced
on six others which were under contract. Particulars are given in the accompanying listing.
Bridge construction virtually halted for three months due to a strike in the
construction industry. Nevertheless, a record year of achievement and projects
resulted due to a desire by contractors to catch up, and good construction weather
that extended well into November, plus the fact that there was considerable winter
activity in the milder southwest section of the Province.
By the year's end the Mission Bridge, crossing the Fraser River at Mission,
was virtually complete with the remaining work being the application of an
epoxy coating to the steel deck of the main span which was then to be topped with
asphalt paving. Both these operations would require fine weather. At the same
time, Commercial Avenue Overhead on the north approach to Mission Bridge was
nearing completion.
Progress at the Knight Street Bridge, crossing the Fraser in Vancouver, was
slow and steady. In December the final links was cast on the main-span crossing
of the north branch of the North Arm, thereby entering the bridge in the record
book as being the first of its type in western Canada. By the year's end, 75 per
cent of the concrete subdeck of the approach spans had been cast and work was
well under way on the main spans crossing the south branch of the North Arm,
At this time, construction of the Marine Drive Overpass on the north approach
to Knight Street Bridge was about 65 per cent complete.
Bridge construction on the Trans-Canada Bypass of Kamloops continued
slowly, with the last structure anticipated to be completed in August 1973.
Most spectacular of the many bridges under construction on the West Vancouver section of the Trans-Canada Highway were Cypress Creek and Nelson
Creek Bridges. By March 31, 1973, the former was complete except for its concrete deck overlay, and the latter was 90 per cent complete.
After high water had passed, construction commenced on the Stikine River
Bridge, the last river crossing on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway. When completed,
it will replace the Department's ferry at the same location. Except for a couple of
months in mid-winter, contractors' crews battled the river and then the weather
to meet the construction deadline—the break-up of ice in 1973. Access to the
site was generally from the Alaska Highway, 220 miles to the north.
Progress on the major bridges associated with Libby Pondage was as follows:
Department forces completed the construction of Kikomun Bridge over the
Kootenay River when they erected the semipermanent superstructure comprising
665 feet of Bailey bridging.
The Wardner Bridge, across the Kootenay, and its neighbouring railway overpass, were opened to traffic in the fall.
Preparatory work commenced late in the year on the three truss spans of the
old Wardner Bridge, which are to be floated downstream and erected three of the
four spans of Bailey bridging at Kikomun.
Notable of the six bridges under construction on Highway 16 between Terrace
and Prince Rupert is the major crossing of the Skeena at Terrace. When completed it will eliminate the bottleneck of the existing single-lane facility nearby.   The
 C 34
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
new crossing comprises two structures—a 1,240-foot bridge over the main channel
and a 780-foot bridge over the west channel. By the year's end, 30 per cent of
the substructure had been completed.
Work commenced on two extra-long structures carrying the Pacific Highway
and the King George VI Highway over the B.C. Harbours Board Railway near
Cloverdale. Due to the presence of a very soft clay, up to 200 feet deep, at both
sites, settlement problems dictated that the structures be 1,350 and 1,260 feet long
and that they be supported by piles varying from 90 feet to 220 feet.
Fabrication of bridge steelwork was little affected by labour problems and
continued steadily through the year. A total of 7,500 tons was fabricated, the most
interesting portion being the 3,000-ton main-span box-girders for the Mission
Bridge. Segments weighing up to 200 tons were transported from the plant to the
site by water and erected, using a large floating crane. In the application of metal
joining technology there has been notable advancement in 1972.
The vertical clearances on 12 steel-truss bridges were increased to the new
minimum design standard of 16 feet.
The bridge deck resurfacing operating was transferred from the Geotechnical
and Materials Testing Branch to the Bridge Branch in April 1972. Seventeen
bridge decks, totalling 84,233 square feet, were restored during 1972 by application of a thin concrete overlay.   Eleven bridge decks were restored by patching.

Bridge Design
Design programme was diversified, varying from structures on new or widened
highways and grade-separation structures to replacement of under-strength structures. Preliminary work was performed on certain structures on the Lougheed
and Island Highway four-laning schemes as well as on structures crossing Dodd
Narrows and False Narrows for the highway connection to the proposed ferry terminal on Gabriola Island.
In continuation of the previous year's design programme, work was performed
on numerous through-truss bridges for the raising of overhead bracing to improve
the vertical clearance.
Details of the programme are shown in the following table:

HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
The 1972/73 fiscal year was the largest construction year in the history of
the Department. Some 47 projects were in progress, with a total expenditure for
the 1972/73 fiscal year of $35,969,785.99.
Tenders were called on 104.59 miles of highway, and 113.40 miles of
construction were completed.
After a slow wet start in April and May the weather co-operated generally
throughout the remainder of the year to provide what might be termed a better-
than-average construction season. Because of the exceptionally late and open fall
in the Interior, most projects were active until mid-December.
It was also a year for the completion of some notable highway links or
improvements—the long-awaited link on the north side of the Fraser River from
Agassiz to Hope was opened to traffic at the beginning of September; the famous
switch-backs along Sproat Lake on the Tofino Highway were replaced with a scenic
modern highway near lake level; the reconstruction of the tortuous section of
Highway 16 from Galloway Rapids just east of Prince Rupert over the "hump" to
Tyee was completed and paved; with the exception of some minor paving and landscaping, the Patricia Bay Highway was completed to four traffic lanes; all highway
relocations required for the Libby Dam reservoir were completed this year, including the major causeway at Kikomun Creek; the new highway to Cowichan Lake
Village was completed and paved and the 15-mile section of the Chilcotin Highway
west of Williams Lake reconstructed to major highway standard.
Perhaps the most notable of all was the closing of the gap on the Cassiar-
Stewart Highway in Ningunsaw Pass, culminating many years of effort by engineers
and contractors alike. Although some bridge replacements and gravelling will
continue, along with improvements in the Bear Pass area, traffic can now travel
from Terrace and Stewart to the northwest portion of British Columbia, the Yukon,
and Alaska. This should have considerable effect on both tourism and resource
industry as access becomes available to a large new area previously served only
by air or from the north.
Individual projects are summarized below:
On the Trans-Canada Highway 401, work is continuing on the four-lane freeway between Horseshoe Bay and Taylor Way. The westerly 3.2-mile section is
nearing completion with 3.1 miles built. Of the 5.75-mile easterly section, 4.14
miles are complete.
On the Trans-Canada Highway 1, the section from Jones Creek to Hunter
Creek west of Hope was completed to a four-lane freeway standard.
On the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 3 and alternates, the Eager Hill
section immediately east of Cranbrook was completed and paved. The 3.2-mile
section from Blueberry Creek to Kinnaird was completed and opened to traffic in
September. Work has started on the 7.85-mile section at Spencer Hill just west of
Grand Forks and is 32 per cent complete. The complex Nelson to Taghum arterial,
which includes the entrances of both Highways 3 and 6 into the city of Nelson, is
95 per cent complete. The 2.02-mile section from Arrow Creek to Goat River is
now 90 per cent complete. A project from Ootischenia to Sublot 65 near Castlegar
was recently awarded and is just getting under way.
On the Nelson-Nelway Highway 6, the 9.3-mile section from Ymir to
Euphrates is now complete. Work has started on the difficult rock section along
Slocan Lake at Slocan City, and is now 16 per cent complete.

On the Yellowhead Highway 16, the McNeil River to Prudhomme Lake
contract was completed and opened for traffic in August. A project involving the
approach work for a new bridge over the Kitsumkalum River immediately west of
Terrace is now approximately 60 per cent complete. A heavy rock section west
of Terrace from Kitsumkalum to Shames, 11.66 miles in length, is now 15 per cent
complete (construction is expected to take three years). A project involving reconstruction to four lanes of Highways 16 and 97 immediately west of Prince George
was awarded and preliminary work has commenced. Three projects have been
undertaken to complete the 39 miles of reconstruction from McBridge to Tete
Jaune. The section immediately east of McBridge was completed and opened to
traffic in September. The 11.31-mile middle section is now 75 per cent complete.
The last section into Tete Jaune is approximately 11 per cent complete.
On the Yellowhead South Highway 5, 4.13 miles of a 6.26-mile section from
Blackpool to Clearwater have been completed.
On the Cariboo Highway 97, the first use by the British Columbia Department
of Highways of a steel corrugated super-pipe for railway grade separation at Kersley
has been completed. Approximately 1.5 miles of a 3.5-mile contract eliminating
a hazardous level crossing of the British Columbia Railway at Macalister have been
completed. A 12.26-mile section from Australian to Alexandria Indian Reserve
south of Quesnel was completed in August.
All highway relocations required for the Libby Dam reservoir were completed
this year, including the major causeway at Kikomun Creek.
As stated earlier, the last two remaining projects on the Cassiar-Stewart Highway to link Terrace to the northwestern section of British Columbia were completed
and opened to traffic in October.
On the Lougheed Highway 7, the 4.33-mile section of difficult rock work
adjacent to the Canadian Pacific Railway from Ruby Creek to Haig was completed
and opened to traffic in September. On the Agassiz to Ruby Creek section, some
12 miles of the 13.6-mile project have been completed and opened to traffic.
Reconstruction to four lanes of the 6-mile section from Pitt River to Haney was
completed.
The widening of the Patricia Bay Highway on Vancouver Island to four lanes
is complete. The reconstruction of the Cowichan Lake Highway has been completed. Also complete is the 13.6-mile section from Great Central Lake to Taylor
Arm on Highway 4 west of Port Alberni. On the Kelsey Bay to Port McNeill section
of the Island Highway, work is now 80 per cent complete on the portion along
Nimpkish Lake. The project from Woss Camp to the south end of Nimpkish Lake
was just recently awarded and work has not yet started.
Work on the Cypress Bowl access road is more than half completed. Completion is expected by the fall of 1973. The Mount Seymour Park Road has been
completed.
The approaches to the Roberts Bank Railway Overpass on the Pacific Highway
at Cloverdale and on the King George VI Highway are completed as far as possible
until settlements are complete. The widening of Highway 17 from Tsawwassen
terminal to Highway 499 is nearing completion except for paving.
In Abbotsford, a very difficult tunnelling job involving freezing saturated
fine-grain soil is nearing completion. A local access from Lickman to River Road
is also nearing completion. The widening to four lanes of 56th Street in Delta is
approximately 50 per cent complete.
 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER C 57
A 15.33-mile section from Halfway River to Galena Bay and Galena Bay to
Galena Pass is approximately 46 per cent complete. This section will complete
reconstruction of the route from Revelstoke south to Nakusp.
A small project from Billings to Cascade near Grand Forks is complete.

REPORT OF SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
Authorizations issued in 1972/73 totalled $32,375,000, which was
$12,326,000 more than the previous year.
Expenditures amounted to $25,176,650, which was $9,396,429 more than the
previous year.
A total of 494 miles of two-lane highway was paved, which was 174 miles
more than last year. In addition, Paving Branch crews roadmixed approximately
109 miles, surface-treated 165 miles, and shoulder-treated 162 miles.
Weather conditions were most favourable throughout the paving season, with
the exception of the northwesterly part of the Province, where higher than normal
precipitation was recorded.
CONTRACT CRUSHING, BASE CONSTRUCTION,
DRAINAGE, AND PAVING
Thirty-nine miles of Trans-Canada Highway 1 were completed in six contracts,
two of which were carried over from the year before. In the General Highways,
21 projects were carried over from 1971/72, all of which involved substantial field
work and expenditure and two included a considerable amount of drainage work.
Thirty-eight projects were called and awarded up to the end of March 1973, and
36 projects were completed during the year.
Again last year a considerable amount of projects for paving in Provincial
parks was carried out for the Department of Recreation and Conservation and the
paving of service areas and parking-lots for various Provincial departments and
agencies was included in the paving contracts.
PULVIMIX AND SURFACE TREATMENTS
Four day-labour crews under the over-all control and direction of a senior
technician were employed in 1972/73. A total of 274 miles was surface-treated
or roadmixed and 162 miles of shoulder treatment were completed by the Paving
Branch crews. MC 0 and MC 2 cut-back asphalt was used in all roadmix work
as it gives the best results under the variable conditions encountered. The viscous-
type emulsified asphalt which was used on test sections last year proved to be most
satisfactory, thus it was used on all shoulder work this year.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
The problem of cold-weather performance of asphalts is still of some concern.
The soft asphalt, S.C. 5, which was used two years ago in areas of very cold weather
has been found to be most suitable for the paving of new grades, less suitable for
recaps. The two new types of asphalt which were brought into effect last year ("A"
for areas of low temperature and "B" for areas of moderate temperature) appear
to be satisfactory, but are still at the experimental stage.
Experimental work with the Nuclear Densometer, Porta-Probe, which was
acquired recently, is still being carried out.   It is hoped that these tests will permit
 C 58 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
the effectiveness of rolling and compaction of a new mat to be checked rapidly.
Tests are also being made to investigate the post-compaction of asphalt-cement
densification due to seasonal changes and the effect of traffic load. The preliminary
investigations and results are only indicative and by no means conclusive. Further
testing is in progress.
Tests with the profilometer were run on approximately 450 miles of new and
old projects to determine the riding qualities of the road surface. The road profile
is measured and a single numerical value of Profile Index is taken for each section
tested. Testing is continuing.
For the past two years, as a trial, 10 per cent of emulsified asphalt has been
introduced into the compaction water for crushed granular surfacing. This
increased the period of binding effect of the water, increased the compaction, and
held the dust down for a considerable longer period of time. The process was most
successful and it is hoped that this practice can be expanded in the future.
PROGRAMMING
The practice of patch paving deteriorated sections of road and leaving the
remaining good sections continued this year; 247,000 tons of mix were made available to the Highways districts in stockpiles and at the asphalt-plant sites to repair
short sections of highway containing sags, slide settlement, frost damaged areas, etc.
SAFETY
Branch personnel had 21 medical aid and five lost-time accidents. The Paving
Branch won the Region 1 Branch Safety Award, and 580,218 man-hours were
worked.

REPORT OF 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 seven 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.
 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER C 67
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.
In the summer of 1972 the Branch began to install electronic vehicle detectors
at reguar traffic-counting stations on high-speed/high-volume highways. The new
detectors, replacing the rubber road tubes previously used, will allow employees
to set up counters on the shoulder without having to venture onto the travelled
lanes. Over 120 detectors or "loops" have already been installed on the Lower
Mainland freeways and the programme is continuing.
Summer daily traffic volumes for 1972 show approximately 46,000 vehicles
on the Port Mann Bridge, 66,000 vehicles on the Second Narows Bridge, 73,000
vehicles on Oak Street Bridge, 44,000 vehicles in the George Massey Tunnel, and
17,000 vehicles on the Okanagan Lake Bridge. Data from the permanent count
stations showed traffic increases in 1972 over 1971 of approximately 3 per cent
jin the northern and southern Interior, 7 per cent in the Fraser Valley, and 9
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 65 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 five 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.
Four railway grade-crossings were signalized in co-operation with the Federal
Railway Transport Committee and the railways under the Committee's jurisdiction.
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 speedmeter.
Fatal accidents occurring on British Columbia roads and highways during the
year were again reviewed in detail and significant characteristics tabulated.

 C 68 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1972/73
REPORT OF THE CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
Submitted herewith are the reports of the Senior Planning Engineer and the
Senior Geotechnical Engineer. Considerable progress was made in obtaining basic
information concerning travel patterns for both people and automobiles during the
year. This information was most useful in planning improvements to transportation
networks in urban and rural areas of the Province. Studies on major road patterns
were investigated in co-operation with the local municipalities and regional districts
to accommodate future travel demands. Among the major studies were the Sunshine
Coast, Courtenay, Campbell River, Prince George, Penticton, Kamloops, and
Kelowna.
E. B. Wilkins, P.Eng.
Chief Planning Engineer
PLANNING BRANCH
The second phase of an evaluation of the primary highway system, which comprised of roadside interviews conducted at 45 strategic locations throughout the
central Interior, was completed. The objective of these interviews was to quantify
existing traffic movements on the major roads in terms of travel distance and trip
purpose. These data form the basic information required to determine inter-regional
travel and thus provide a framework for identifying future highway needs.
Eight smaller studies were conducted to determine the regional road systems
required to access developable land in the vicinity of rapidly expanding communities.
These regional road systems comprise an integral part of the urban planning process.
A total of 15 traffic pattern studies was also completed. Fourteen were concerned with traffic patterns into and through smaller urban areas, while one survey
was conducted to determine the relationship between a direct ferry link and a more
circuitous road link. This procedure incurred the recording and subsequent matching of licence plates by observation and therefore involved no intrusion into the
free movement of traffic.
The most densely populated section of the Lower Mainland was subdivided by
"screenlines" located at physical, land use, and jurisdictional boundaries. Records
were then made of the movements of vehicles and people across these screenlines.
These data provide a direct measurement of the mobility of the various parts of the
community and are summarized on a daily peak hourly basis. Data were collected
at a total of 290 observation points.
The major roads and a selected group of minor routes were photographed to
compile a current record of the status of the Provincial road network. This record
provides visual information for the use of various Government officials. The films
were used by the Systems Planning Section to organize and schedule all requests
considered for inclusion in the Annual Capital Construction Programme. In addition, a ride-comfort study was conducted to obtain correlations between recognized
existing roughness instrumentation and instrumentation being developed by the
Department and incorporated on the photographic records.
The Computer Inventory data bank was updated and modified to include
current traffic-count information, together with posted maximum speeds. This data
bank forms the basis for a variety of reports provided to the executive, including the
status of all work being undertaken by the Department.
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
C 69
The Municipal Programmes Section, in its second year of operation, dealt with
an increased number of matters of mutual concern to both municipalities and the
Department. Financial assistance for works on secondary highways was extended
to 58 municipalities. Negotiations were conducted with 20 municipalities regarding
cost-sharing for improvements to arterial highways and with four municipalities
regarding financial assistance with bridge replacements. In addition, 53 changes in
route classification were considered.
Branch, regional, and district officials processed some 4,183 tentative and
3,405 final subdivisions, 607 controlled access and 5,454 ordinary entrance permit
applications, and 619 rezoning applications. With the fast growth and development
in British Columbia, this work is increasing rapidly and two additional staff members were engaged to deal with this type of correspondence.

Senior Planning Engineer
GEOTECHNICAL AND MATERIALS TESTING BRANCH
The past year saw the approval and implementation of a new personnel establishment for the Branch, which shifted more functional specialization to the regions.
To cope with the various specialities, the Branch establishment now includes professional engineers, geologists, a geophysicist, mathematician, chemists, engineering
and mining technicians, as well as skilled diamond drillers, rock workers, and aides.
Branch facilities consist of a Headquarters laboratory and four regional laboratories as well as a storage and parts centre for large equipment items in Burnaby.
The Branch is taking a systems approach to the management of its resources to
maximize performance of services. Requests for the services of this Branch from
other branches have been formalized, a different method of work inventory and
progress reporting has been adopted, and plans are being made to effect some
changes in the expenditure recording to allow better analyses of investigation objectives and methods.
Consulting engineers were retained for some jobs, either to supplement Branch
resources or for their special expertise.
ROUTE SURVEY INVESTIGATIONS (SOIL SURVEY)
During this past year there were investigations for 42 new highway location
surveys, with a total length of 371 miles. Some of the projects requiring intensive
investigations were Sicamous to Grindrod, several sections between Terrace and
Prince Rupert, Fort Nelson to Petitot River (Fort Simpson Trail), Say ward to Nimpkish Lake, Castlegar to Meadow Siding, and Bridal Falls to Hope. Consultant
engineers were retained for part of the Sicamous to Grindrod Soil Survey. Depending on field conditions and information requirements, the investigation methods
ranged from airphoto studies, rock mapping, seismic refraction surveys, drilling,
and test-pitting. Slightly over 40,000 feet of seismic refraction lines were run,
covering a total of about 25 miles of highway location for the purpose of locating
the depth of soil strata with differing densities and of buried bedrock profiles in
proposed cuts.
FOUNDATION DESIGN INVESTIGATIONS
Foundation conditions were checked in the field (mostly by testhole drilling
and field testing), and foundation design reports prepared for 53 new bridge-sites
and 31 Department of Public Works buildings.   The high cost and safety require-
 C 70 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
ments for new bridges and buildings necessitate thorough and careful analyses of
foundation conditions; a large proportion of engineering evaluation within the
Branch is devoted to the foundation design function. The opportunity to compare
theory with practice is afforded through analysis of pile-driving behaviour as the
structure is built, and this sometimes results in modifications to pile installations.
For example, on a recent structure in Vancouver, two pile-load tests were eliminated,
saving $9,000 and a further $8,000 saved by shortening the lengths of penetration
of the piles.
Some of the highlights of the more interesting or costly problems this season
are as follows:
(a) Bridges
Pitt River Bridge—A new bridge is planned parallel to the exisiting structure.
Because of widely spaced supports, and the poor subsoil conditions, the Branch has
recommended that both the abutments and piers of the new bridge be founded on
piles. Steel-pipe piles, 24 inches in diameter, or large-diameter hollow-concrete piles
driven to a depth of at least 120 feet will act as friction piles. A pile test is proposed
to check the calculated capacity of 60 tons per pile.
Kamloops Bypass—Construction of the Peterson Creek Bridge has now been
completed. The Branch installed pressure cells underneath the footings for the tall
pier structures and this instrumentation was monitored regularly to assess uncertain
load-transfer conditions during construction. At the Valleyview Overpass, also
under construction, the Branch was consulted on the benching arrangement for the
erection procedure.
Arras Bridge—Located across the Kiskatinaw River on a relocated portion of
the John Hart Highway, the sole river pier excavation was carried to the underlying
shale about 14 feet below the bottom of the river bed. Only by keeping this shale
dry was it possible to use the 4 tons per square foot bearing capacity desired for this
pier.
Taghum Bridge near Nelson—Although the supports for the proposed new
bridge across the Kootenay River will be on bedrock, it was considered necessary to
investigate the broken bedrock structure further in some places by rock mapping and
core drilling.
Nechako River Bridge at Fort Fraser—There is a 32-foot-deep excavation for
the foundation of the west abutment, with temporary bridge. Excavated loose
materials are to be replaced with well-compacted gravels to form a base for the west
abutment spread footings. The six river piers will be founded on 16-inch O.D.
steel-tube piles driven through clays into dense gravels at 60 to 80-foot depths. The
piles are designed to carry 60 tons each. Pile-driving is well in hand, showing completely satisfactory results.
Many other sites were investigated, some requiring novel approaches to achieve
satisfactory foundations, for example, Cheekye River Bridge, Squamish.
(b) Buildings
Projects for the Department of Public Works included foundation investigations
for B.C. Forest Green Timbers Service Warehouse on the Fraser Highway, the
Kamloops Vocational School Stores Building, the Burnaby Personal Care Buildings,
and 15 proposed Highways maintenance establishments throughout the Province.
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
C 71
STABILITY INVESTIGATIONS
Partly because the previous winter was exceptionally mild and wet throughout
most of the Province, a large number of landslides plagued the highway system. The
Branch investigated 48 failures, ranging from minor slips to complete destruction
of the travelled surface. Some of the more spectacular occurrences were at Jackass
Mountain in the Fraser Canyon, near Mars Creek on the Big Bend Highway, the
Williston Lake Slide near Fort St. John, the Bosum Slide between New Denver and
Silverton, the Cinema Slide about 25 miles north of Quesnel, the Amory Slide south
of Vernon on Highway 97, and continuous problems at Porteau Bluffs between
Horseshoe Bay and Squamish, as well as at Hell's Gate Bluffs. Remedial measures
ranged from highway relocation to controlled reconstruction using special materials
and drainage provisions. Because of the different specialties and equipment, soil
and rock slope-stability problems are treated differently. The usual method to
stabilize some types of soil slope failures consists of installing perforated drains by
drilling. To do this work, the Branch operates a horizontal drilling rig which has
been working constantly during the past season on soil slope failures near Williams
Lake, south of Golden, and near Fort St. John. In addition, vertical drains were
installed in a slide near Princeton to relieve artesian water pressures.
Big Bend Highway
Photo 4 shows an aerial view, taken from a helicopter, of an extremely large
flow slide which occurred in July near Mars Creek. Its proximity required that the
highway be relocated over a distance of about 3,000 feet. Many other slides occurred
along this highway this year as debris avalanches started 2,000 to 4,000 feet up the
mountains.   One such slide killed a workman this year at Mile 41.
Cottonwood Creek Slide, Nelson
A large slump area in a "quick" condition because of seepage pressures was on
a centreline of a proposed 80-foot fill leading to Cottonwood Creek grade-separation
structure. Horizontal drains were installed, draining 380,000 gallons of water per
day. Because of the slide situation, the design of the adjacent bridge pier and abutment was altered to be pile supported (driven to bedrock using special rock points
on the piles).
Chilcotin Bridge Slide
This landslide occurred in May 1972 during construction of the east approach
to the bridge. The dimensions of the slide are impressive, 1,000 feet long and 400
feet wide. The problem was investigated by a soils consultant retained by the Department. Following his recommendation, horizontal drains have been installed into the
slope below the road. The water yield from these drains has been as high as 36,000
gallons per hour.
Abbotsford Storm Sewer
The extension of a storm sewer under McCallum Road, Abbotsford, necessitated freezing of the ground to stabilize very poor subsurface soil. To monitor the
effects of this ground-freezing operation on a building (already cracked) adjacent
to the line of the proposed storm-sewer extension, and the amount of ground
movement itself, precise devices were installed on the building and in the ground.
Photos 11 and 12 show the plumbing required for the ground freezing.
 C 72 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Nicoamen River Bridge
As a result of a flash flood, bent No. 3 of the above bridge was undermined
in May 1972 and in the subsequent seven months settled approximately 2,5 inches.
The settlement manifested itself in a visible tilt of the bent. In order to arrest
the settlement, a grouting programme was devised with the co-operation of a consulting engineer. The stabilizing programme was successfully carried out by Branch
personnel, filling a 1-foot void under the footing with a cement-based grout. A
total of 391 bags of cement and 120 bags of pozzolan was injected under pressure
into five grouting holes drilled through existing concrete footings.
Rock Slopes
Because of the large number of high-rock slopes in difficult locations, the
Branch maintains a crew of high-rock scalers who check potentially dangerous rock
faces. When not involved with engineering studies, this crew undertakes corrective
construction work on high-rock slopes or major rock slides.
Hell's Gate Bluffs
After some years of monitoring specially installed instrumentation for rock
movements at the Hell's Gate Bluffs south of Boston Bar, 15,000 cubic yards of
talus were unloaded from 200 feet above the road. This was done by contractor
under supervision of the Branch. Although the dangerous work was done in winter
months, there were no accidents or serious delays to traffic.
A gauge to measure rock movement was set in a drill hole 320 feet into the
rock at road-level. While the hole was being drilled, a heavy flow of water was
encountered. The flow abated after several days and now stops during dry weather.
Monitoring of the area continues.
Highway 99
A deep roadway cut in argillite rock on Highway 99 that had been the scene
of numerous troublesome rock-falls was scaled and all apparent loose and dangerous rock removed. It was then covered in a layer of concrete 2 to 3 inches thick
that was blown on with a compressed-air gun. The rock was also drained by
deep drill holes.
At Porteau Bluffs, also on Highway 99, a 500-cubic-yard unstable block of
granite 300 feet above the highway was removed by drilling and blasting, with no
serious delays to road or rail traffic.
Consulting engineers were involved in the studies for the Hell's Gate Bluffs,
Ruby Creek rock cut, and the Odium Slide on the Haig to Aggassiz route.
AGGREGATE INVESTIGATIONS
This function comprises the prospecting for gravel pits and the quality control
of processed aggregates for base-course components and concrete mixes. Prospecting for new gravel pits is usually done by a process which includes airphoto studies,
geological examination, test-pit excavation, auger drilling, and laboratory testing
of samples. A new cat-backhoe unit placed in the Nelson Region improved the
effectiveness in gravel exploration in that region.
The Branch started to use the electrical resistivity method this year which, by
measuring anomalies in the ground resistivity, is a useful additional tool in the
delineation of boundaries of gravel deposits.
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
C 73
This year there were 146 areas investigated; some were existing pit areas
where additional gravel had to be found but most were in new prospect areas.
Altogether the success ratio of establishing adequate new aggregate resources is
estimated at 50 per cent, but this ratio has been decreasing rapidly over the last
decade as this nonrenewable resource is being used at increasing rates. Lower
quality sources are now being considered in several areas of the Province; elsewhere
bedrock is being quarried and processed to fill aggregate needs.
The Branch is intensely involved in the testing of concrete aggregates as
part of the concrete-mix design and quality control activity. Less intensive testing
is done during aggregate production for maintenance and construction.
PAVEMENT EVALUATIONS
Pavement and base-course thicknesses required for the widening and overlay
of existing pavements are determined from pavement evaluation studies which
include Benkelman Beam measurements (deflections under a standard 18,000-
pound axle load), pavement surface condition surveys, and shallow drilling through
existing pavements and base courses. In addition, 206 spring control section, each
with 10 test points, are tested regularly to aid in setting spring-load restrictions and
to give data used in new design studies. This season, pavement evaluation studies
were done over 586 miles of highway, using on an average six Benkelman Beam
test units. The rapid testing produces large quantities of data which are processed
by the Data Centre computer, using programmes prepared by the Geotechnical
Branch; there is an increasing need for suitable high-speed desk calculators to
regionalize the analysis of data.
INSPECTIONS
The Branch is extensively involved in the quality control testing of materials
purchased and used by various departments of the Government. Materials which
were inspected included concrete, Portland cement, steel and concrete culverts,
paint, lumber (bridge timbers, foundation piles, gluelam beams, etc.), chain-link
fencing, and reinforcing steel. Our statistics show that during this year there were
7,885 concrete test cylinders tested for compressive strengths, 62.9 miles of culvert
were inspected and sampled at random, 8,026,126 board feet of lumber inspected,
313,210 lineal feet of timber piling evaluated, and 317 paint inspections and testings performed. The purpose of the Branch inspection service is twofold—it
ensures reasonable quality in goods purchased by the Department and it has served
in many cases as a general stimulus for good quality production by the manufacturing industry. The concrete redecking operation was transferred to the Bridge
Branch this year, but the Branch still inspects concrete bridge decks (including
core drilling) and recommends priorities for reconstruction.
APPLIED RESEARCH
The Branch does a limited amount of applied research related to some aspect
of any material or procedure used by the Department. A microscopic study was
made of the effect of oxidation on the microstructure of paving asphalts; this study
formed the initial stage for typing bitumens. A paper on this subject entitled "A
Microscopic Examination of the Effect of Oxidation on the Microstructure of
Paving Asphalts" was presented by P. Sontowski, B.Sc, to the 1972 Annual
Conference of the Canadian Technical Asphalt Association in Vancouver and a
 C 74 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
second paper by the same author entitled "A Microscopic Approach to the Micro-
structure of Paving Asphalts" was accepted for publication in the March 1973
issue of the Journal of Materials issued by the American Society for Testing
Materials.
Experiments on the cold-temperature behaviour of certain asphalts used in
British Columbia were analysed and the findings presented by R. O. Darby to the
Canadian Technical Asphalt Association in a paper entitled "Low Temperature
Properties of Western Canadian Asphalt Cements." A detailed investigation was
made to minimize unforeseen problems in the placement of asphaltic concrete on
the steel orthotropic deck of the new Mission Bridge. Modifications were developed
to existing electronic field testing equipment for the measurement of temperatures,
etc., so that close access to high-hazard areas is avoided.
The Branch was also involved in the continuous process of revising some parts
of the General Department Specifications; this year there was research on proposed
changes for culvert pipe, galvanized wire, and Portland cement concrete.
Considerable effort has been made to handle geophysical computations by
computer to increase both quality and production, and work is being done on both
equipment and methods to improve the accuracy of geophysical methods. Methods
of airborne geophysics are under review which promise quicker results. Bore-hole
geophysical methods using miniaturized devices are under review. A high-quality
oscilloscope has been added to the electronic equipment to help in the solution of
engineering geophysical problems by conducting model studies.
Following occasional but recurring needs to measure soil pressures against
structures, the Branch developed and manufactured simple but effective pressure
cells. Installations were made under a retaining-wall and against a large multiplate
culvert at Kersley Creek near Quesnel and Small Creek culvert near Tete Jaune.
STAFF TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
During the year, two design engineers resigned. The junior engineer was
replaced by competition, but no suitable candidate was found for the more senior
position which remains unfilled.
On-the-job training was supplemented by more formal efforts. A week-long
training course in soil-sampling techniques and their uses was given to all drilling
personnel. Brief courses were also given in introductory rock-slope stability. A
course on advanced concrete-mix design methods was conducted for concrete
inspection technicians. A two-week-long survey course was conducted in conjunction with other branches.
In order to take full advantage of the expertise of various members of the
Evaluation and Design Group and to record and disseminate their knowledge to
others in the Branch, it was decided to prepare a design manual covering the
common areas of the groups activities, viz., Slope Stability, Fill-Stability, Seepage
and Dam Design, Settlement, Earth Pressure, Compaction and Ground Stabilization,
Building Foundations, Instrumentation, Insitu Tests, Pile Foundations, Grouting,
and Tunnels in Soil. The purpose of the manual would be to provide an internal
reference for Branch problem-solving.
Some 30 Branch personnel wrote one or more of the Departmental proficiency
examinations. The Branch Office Manager successfully completed the nine-month-
long correspondence course in Public Administration. Two geologists and one
geophysicist completed qualifying examinations for registration as professional
engineers.
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
C 75
One engineer attended a seminar on rock mechanics and related topics in
Toronto. Our senior field geologist took part in a week-long field trip of the
Geological Society of Canada, hosting the International Geological Congress, to
examine geological features of the Western Cordillera.
One member of the Branch attended a seminar on avalanche control, reflecting
a renewed awareness of the growing need to reduce the effects of snowslides in
some areas, e.g., in the Fraser Canyon and along Highway 16 between Terrace
and Prince Rupert.
The Branch was honoured to have two of its senior members in leading roles
with the Association of Professional Engineers of British Columbia—at this time
J. W. G. Kerr, P.Eng., having served as President, is now immediate Past President
of the Association, and J. D. Austin, P.Eng., is a member of the Council.

 REPORT OF GENERAL MANAGER OF FERRIES C 81
BRITISH COLUMBIA FERRIES DIVISION
REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER
Growth throughout the 12 routes of the Ferry System continues at an unexpected rate of 13 per cent for passengers and 11 per cent for vehicles. Indications
are that there is no immediate abatement in this growth pattern.
Expansion of the lift-off capacity of the ships continued with the stretching of
the Queen of Burnaby and Queen of New Westminster. This now brings the total of
200-car ferries to six.
Alterations to docking facilities at Horseshoe Bay and Departure Bay were
required to accommodate these enlarged vessels, and work was well under way at
the end of the fiscal year.
Terminal facilities are being enlarged at Saltery Bay on the Sunshine Coast, as
well as a greatly expanded parking facility at Tsawwassen. This latter development,
when completed, will provide for public parking of 1,000 cars.
Gulf Island facilities at Galiano Island (Sturdies Bay), Pender Island (Otter
Bay), and Saltspring Island (Fulford Harbour) were enlarged and improved.
The highly competitive northern route to Prince Rupert continues to grow
rapidly. Last year was again the largest ever and early bookings in 1973 are 75
per cent up over the preceding year.
A cocktail lounge was installed on the promenade deck of the Queen of Prince
Rupert and it is expected that this additional service will be appreciated by those
travelling on this 20-hour voyage.

REGIONAL REPORTS
HIGHWAY DISTRICT REPORTS
REGION 1
(D. D. Godfrey, Regional Highway Engineer, Burnaby)
Saanich, Nanaimo, Courtenay, North Vancouver, New Westminster, and
Chilliwack Highway Districts
Saanich District
Roads
Subdivision activity continued at a high level in the Langford and Cobble Hill
areas. Increased building activity in all areas caused an increase in the number
of permits issued by the District Office and a subsequent heavier load on the
inspection staff and road foremen.
The weather was moderate for the year with only one heavy rainstorm on
December 25 and 26, which caused extensive flooding in the Sooke and Langford
areas.   There were no road closures.
A new foreman area and a yard were instituted at Port Renfrew.
Maintenance—Most foreman areas received less than normal maintenance
due to the heavy Minor Day-labour Programme. Three foreman areas were
introduced into the Managed Maintenance Programme on the initial work study
and inventory phases.
Bituminous surfacing—Seven miles of Porlier Pass road were roadmixed to
complete the surfacing of that road from the north to the south ends of Galiano
Island. Sunset Drive and Beaver Point roads on Saltspring Island were roadmixed. All foreman areas received above-normal roadmixing due to extra funds
made available.
Reconstruction—Four-laning of the Trans-Canada Highway was completed
but not paved from Mill Bay north to the district boundary. A three-year
programme to upgrade the Sooke Road was completed except for the final paving.
Work continued on the reconstruction of the West Coast Road between Jordan
River and Port Renfrew.
Snow removal—A light year for snow and ice removal was experienced, with
only two major snow-storms experienced.
Bridges
The Harris Cove Bridge at Port Renfrew was completed. The substructure
for the rebuilding of the Millstream Bridge on the Shawnigan Lake-Mill Bay Road
was completed.
The Royal Oak Drive (Falaisse) and Quadra Street Underpasses were
opened to traffic on the Patricia Bay Highway.
Buildings
The Cobble Hill fuel shed was completed. A new yard-site and buildings
were acquired at Port Renfrew. A new yard-site on Keating Cross Road in
Central Saanich was acquired with the intention of moving the Burnside Road
yard at some future date.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 107
Nanaimo District
Roads
Maintenance—The Greater Nanaimo area surrounding the City of Nanaimo
continues to grow, resulting in increasing demands for services. A programme of
upgrading and repaving was carried out concentrating on feeder routes through
the subdivided areas. A similar programme was carried out in the Port Alberni
area where rapid growth is taking place around the City of Port Alberni.
In the Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Deep Bay areas, again extreme sub-division
growth took place and a number of roads were upgraded.
Dust-layer oil was applied where necessary throughout the district. A major
brushing programme was carried out in all areas, with special reference to the
Alberni-Tofino Highway, where alder growth is extreme.
Reconstruction—A concentrated effort was made to create four-lane sections
on the Trans-Canada and Island Highways with 8 miles of four-lane highway
completed, truck lane was constructed on the Island Highway near Craig's Crossing, and shoulder widening and improvements on the Island Highway in the
Nanoose area.
Bituminous surfacing—An extensive surfacing and resurfacing programme
was carried out with a total of 34 miles of paving completed.
Snow removal—Light snowfalls were experienced, except on the Alberni-
Tofino Highway, and even in that area snow was lighter than usual. Salt and sand
use was heavier than normal due to continual thawing and freezing conditions.
Bridges
A general programme of redecking bridges was carried out.
Buildings
A new assembly room and foreman's office were constructed at the Duncan
yard. A new mechanical stockroom and mechanical foreman's office was built
at Nanaimo yard. An addition was completed to the mechanical shop at Port
Alberni. A new salt shed was constructed at the Lake Cowichan yard. In the
Cassidy area, property was negotiated for a new yard-site.
Ferries
Normal service was maintained on the Thetis and Gabriala Island ferries.
Ferry docks were rebuilt to accommodate the new-type ferries on these runs. A
waiting-room with rest-room facilities was constructed at the Chemainus ferry-
landing.
Courtenay District
Construction—At the north end of Vancouver Island, reconstruction of Coal
Harbour Road was completed and paved with hotmix asphalt. Reconstruction of
the road to Jeune Landing (serving Port Alice and Rumble Beach) was completed
and approximately 50 per cent was paved with hotmix asphalt.
Road oil was spread on most rural roads in Courtenay and Campbell River
areas. Additional oil was placed on some roads on Hornby, Denman, Quadra,
and Cortes Islands.
 C 108 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Approximately 6 miles of roadmix asphalt was placed on roads in Courtenay
area, 4 miles in Campbell River area, 2V& miles on Quadra Island, and 2 miles on
Cortes Island. Grading, ditch-cleaning, and brush-cutting were carried out during
the summer.
Maintenance—Winter snow removal was routine with average or slightly
below average snowfall. Depth varied, with Courtenay receiving 34 inches; Campbell River, 67 inches; Forbidden Plateau, 245 inches; and Gold River, 176 inches.
Several freezing and thawing cycles in the late winter caused frost damage to
several rural roads.
Bridges
Deck systems on several minor bridges were renewed. These included Glen-
lyon Bridge in Port Hardy area and Malcolm Bridge in Sointula. The following
new bridges were constructed: Wilkinson Bridge in Little River area, Comox
Peninsula; Stafford Bridge on Kirby Road, located just north of Courtenay; and
Lockwell Bridge on Lockwell Road, which is located off Fraser Road.
Ferries
The Sointula Queen serviced Port McNeill, Alert Bay, and Sointula. The
Comox Queen and, during summer months, the Queen of the Islands serviced
Comox-Powell River; the Texada Queen, Texada Island, Quadra Queen, Quadra
Island, and Cortes Queen, Cortes Island.
After nearly 20 years' service to Denman Island, the Catheryn Graham was
taken off service. The Rolf Bruhn was used to service Denman Island during the
last part of the year while waiting for the new vessel, the Klitsa, to arrive. The
Albert J. Savoie was used on the Hornby Island service.
Buildings
A single-bay equipment shed was constructed in the Courtenay yard to
accommodate a new electrically operated truck hoist. Three more bays were also
added to open-type carriage sheds in Courtenay for storage of equipment.
Furnaces were purchased for Denman Island shed, Sointula shed, and Hornby
Island shed.
Courtenay garage was repainted and other maintenance was carried out as
needed.
North Vancouver District
Roads
Construction—A heavy day-labour programme and above-average daily precipitation contributed to an unusual season in this district. Major projects were
under way on Garibaldi Highway 99 and Sunshine Coast Highway 101. Approximately 10 miles of new highway were constructed to a 60-m.p.h. standard
along these routes. The normal engineering staff was expanded to handle the
projects.
Maintenance—There was a below-average snowfall throughout the district;
however, on two occasions record rainfalls created serious drainage problems along
the Upper Levels and the Sunshine Coast. Flooding and scouring of private
property prompted many letters seeking compensation from the Department.
Approximately 20 miles of no-post guard-rail along Highways 1 and 99 were
lifted, the shoulder paved, and the guard-rail reset. A median barrier with antiglare screen was installed along the "Big Cut" section of the Trans-Canada Highway
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 109
and seems to have solved the head-on collision problem in that area. Riprapping
along the Squamish and Lillooet Rivers and rock stabilization at Porteau along
Highway 99 was again under way. In excess of 30 miles of road were paved
throughout the district.
Buildings
Construction of two new salt sheds and improvements to existing yards were
completed. A new yard-site at Alta Lake is progressing to handle the expanding
area of Whistler.
New Westminster District
Roads
Maintenance—Highways throughout the district were, in general, maintained
to a high standard commensurate with traffice needs and aesthetic considerations.
During the spring and summer months, grass-mowing continued to be a major
item. The beautification programme continued this year, with many trees planted
along the median of Trans-Canada Highway 1.
An extensive resurfacing programme reduced the amount of pavement maintenance, which had become quite excessive on home highway sections that were
yielding to the effects of a fairly severe winter and heavy traffic volumes. A
continuing programme of surface-treating shoulders should help to reduce shoulder
maintenance, especially on Trans-Canada Highway 1, where gravel shoulders require heavy maintenance and grading is an involved procedure because of the highspeed traffic.
Brush control is mainly undertaken by hand labour or by machine where
possible.   The use of chemicals for this purpose is quite limited.
Snow removal—Being a very mild winter this year, very few problems of
any significance were experienced with respect to snow removal and salting operations.   The average recorded snowfall for this district was about 19 inches total.
Construction
Some construction programmes in the district were quite extensive this year;
the largest day-labour project being the widening of Tsawwassen Highway 17 to
four lanes from 56th Street to Deas Throughway, Highway 99. This is a continuing project that will run through 1973.
Other major projects included the reconstruction of 2.5 miles of Aldergrove—
Bellingham Highway 13 from Bertrand Creek to the International Boundary, the
revising of the intersection of King George VI Highway 99a and Fraser Highway
Ia, as well as widening to four lanes King George VI Highway to 96th Avenue,
and the reconstruction of half a mile of Bedwell Bay Road in the area of Sasamat
Lake.
A large drainage project involving storm-sewering a section of ditch on Pacific
Highway in Surrey, between 16th Avenue and 20th Avenue, was completed as
well as some piping of ditches in the area of 12th Avenue to provide safer shoulders
and overcome erosion problems.
Channelization work started last year was completed at the intersection of
Scott Road at 72nd Avenue, at Scott Road and 96th Avenue in Surrey, and at
Lougheed Highway and 240th Street in Maple Ridge.
Channelization and an improved right-turn lane were completed on Canada
Way at Kensington Street in Burnaby.
 C 110 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
In response to the heavy demand for signalized intersections, traffic signals
were installed at the intersections of Lougheed Highway and Blue Mountain Road
in Coquitlam, Lougheed Highway at Holdom Avenue in Burnaby, on 152nd Street
at 108th Avenue in Surrey, and on Fraser Highway at New McLellan Road in
Langley. Also, a start was made on a traffic signal on King George VI Highway
at 152nd Avenue in Surrey.
Bridges
Little in the way of major work was undertaken on structures this year. Apart
from the complete redecking of Scott Creek Bridge on Lougheed Highway and
rebuilding part of Barnston Island ferry-landing damaged as a result of river erosion
during the freshet, most of the work consisted of routine maintenance.
Ferries
To cope with the heavy increase in traffic using the Albion ferry, the ferry
was taken off a scheduled run and put on shuttle operation. Since removal of tolls
in February 1972, summer vehicle volumes have increased about 20 per cent and
passenger volumes about 45 per cent. The vessel, MV T'Lagunna, was out of service for about seven weeks from January 25 to March 15, 1973, for extensive
refit and reduction-gear replacement. Temporary service was provided by a tug
and barge.
Barnston Island ferry, apart from the tug being out of service for inspection
and repairs for a short period in February, maintained a busy schedule throughout
the year.
The freshet in June flooded the Hjorth Road approach to the ferry-landing,
forcing relocation to a temporary landing at Port Kells, about 2 miles upstream.
Chilliwack District
Roads
Maintenance—Highways were maintained in good condition during the year.
Main highways and roadside rest areas were patrolled daily for litter throughout
the tourist season. Dust, from gravel roads, was controlled as required by the
application of oil. Heavy precipitation during the month of December resulted
in several minor wash-outs. These were repaired with as little inconvenience as
possible to the public.
Bituminous surfacing—An extensive paving programme was carried on
throughout the district. Approximately 13 miles of gravel road were paved, and
10.6 miles of asphalt road were recapped.
Snow removal—Snowfall was moderate. All roads were ploughed and sanded
as required, and were kept in good condition.
Bridges
A pile-trestle bridge, Weaver Creek 1, was constructed over Weaver Creek
to replace an old log-stringer span. Routine maintenance was carried out on other
bridges as required.   Petticoat Creek Bridge was replaced by a culvert and fill.
Buildings
A new four-bay equipment shed was constructed in the Agassiz yard to
replace a building demolished by heavy winds during the previous winter.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 111
A salt and sand storage shed and an equipment storage building were constructed on Department property near Ruby Creek, adjacent to the recently opened
section of Lougheed Highway.
District crews constructed a new building and scale pit near Hunter Creek to
replace a weigh-scale site which was bypassed as a result of a section of the
Trans-Canada being four-laned.
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 on side roads continuing. Approximately 8 miles of Pinantan
Lake Road were treated with liquid calcium chloride in two applications, and the
results were encouraging, but the cost remains high.
The Thompson River rose to the highest recorded level since 1894, and the
first half of June was entirely taken up by emergency work on dykes and flood
protection. Notable among the various incidents was the disaster at Oak Hills,
Westsyde, where some 200 homes and trailers were flooded.
 -     WSmmm- *
North Thompson Flyover, Trans-Canada Highway-Kamloops superstructure formwork.
Construction—Relocation and construction of Todd Road were carried out
for 0.9 mile to provide an improved access to the Barnhartvale area. Other
reconstruction by district forces on side roads added up to 14.45 miles.   Widening
 C 112 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
to improve a bad curve of 0.1 mile was carried out on Princeton-Kamloops Highway 5. Other minor improvements by district forces added up to a total length
of 24.3 miles. New salt-storage sheds were constructed at Savona and Birch
Island.
Bridges
All bridges were inspected by the bridge foreman during the year, and necessary maintenance work done. Bridges reconstructed were Cahility and Deadman
Creek 6.   Superstructure reconstruction on Lemieux Creek 3 was completed.
Ferries
Repairs at McLure and Little Fort ferries included work on the ramps,
bridles, and safety-lines.   The superstructure on the Little Fort ferry was renewed.
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads in the district. Soil sterilants were used again to effectively control weed
growth on road shoulders and in the area of guard-rails and signs. Roadside
brush and grass were controlled by spraying and mowing. In all, 18 miles of side
road received dust-control treatment by use of oil and 4.2 miles by the use of
liquid calcium. Considerable time was spent in the repair of damage caused to
roads and bridges due to the very high stream and lake levels.
Construction—Reconstruction was carried out on 3.2 miles of side roads, as
follows: Tappen-Notch Hill Road, 0.8; White Lake Road, 0.5; Tappen Valley
Road, 1.5; Trans-Canada (McKenzie Hill slide area), 0.4.
Snow removal—Snowfall was much lighter than average. Shift systems were
in effect and all roads were kept open and in good condition.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on all bridges. Four bridges were
reconstructed—Green Lake, Charcoal, Morgan, and Hutala.
McBride District
Roads
Maintenance—A heavy spring run-off damaged three bridge approaches on
Highway 16 between McBride and Tete Jaune and resulted in wash-outs on
Mountain View Road. Closures were kept to a minimum by prompt action by
Department crews. A mile of Mountain View road was subsequently raised to
dyke against future floods.
A total of 5.5 miles of minor roads was gravelled. Dust layer was applied
to 12 miles of Highway 16 near Tete Jaune and a total of 5 miles (in short section)
on other roads.
Crews from Tete Jaune paved the approaches to the "Fraser River at Tete
Jaune" bridge and gravelled the highway under the new CNR underpass, one-half
mile to the south of the bridge.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 113
No-post guard-rail was placed on all major bridge approaches. A further
350 feet of guard-rail were placed to protect an aerial section of pipe-line east of
Mount Robson.
An unusual winter, which featured some freezing rains, resulted in the buildup of ice and compact snow on the highways.
Bridges
District forces constructed five new bridges, including a combination log
stringer and Bailey Bridge across the Beaver River.
Buildings
A new 10,000-square-foot shop at Tete Jaune was completed as were new
oil sheds at Tete Jaune and McBride. A new floor was poured in the McBride
shop.
Vernon District
Roads
Maintenance—The usual high standard of maintenance in the district suffered
during the spring and summer because crews were hard pressed to deal with severe
run-off conditions caused by the heavy snow accumulation of the winter. Clean-up
of the low-level run-off was further hampered when high water on the Shuswap
River and tributaries caused flood damage in late May and June.
Numerous small slides and flooded roads required repair, including the raising of a section of Highway 97a, north of Grinrod, to keep it above the flood-
level.   Most of the damage was cleaned up by fall.
Subdivisions in the North Okanagan continued active, the Department processed 285 tentative subdivisions, 249 final subdivisions, 27 land-use contracts,
and 359 permits were issued for work on Crown land.
Roadside development plant at Vernon, operated by the district, produced
2,360 feet of no-post guard-rail, 203 terminal sections, and 184 bridge-transition
curbs. Using the same manufacturing process, 69 Department of Highways ter-
razzo-finished concrete picnic tables were completed, in addition to 19 toilets.
Construction—Two miles of Deep Creek Road and one-half mile of Canyon
Road in the Enderby area were reconstructed and gravelled. Portions of Silver
Star, Carr's Landing, Hickman, and Commonage Roads in the Vernon area were
also reconstructed and gravelled. Stage 2 of the pavement widening and storm-
sewer system in Lumby on Vernon—Slocan Highway 6 was completed. Two and
one-half miles of the Vernon—Slocan Highway 6 were reconstructed and gravelled
near Cherryville and at Mclntyre Lake near the Monashee summit.
Snow removal—A much-below-normal snowfall was experienced in the lower
areas of the district and a near normal snow-pack in the higher altitudes. The
demand for sanding and salt continued to increase.
Paving—Approximately 11.7 miles of paving on trunk, main, and various
side roads were completed by the district. On the Enderby-Mabel Lake Road, 1.2
miles of roadmix pavement and 4.3 miles of plantmix pavement were completed.
One mile of repaving with plantmix was also completed on the Lumby-Mabel Lake
Road.
 C 114 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Bridges
High water on June 9 washed out the Kettle River Bridge on the old Mona-
shee Highway, a new log-stringer span was constructed to replace the old bridge.
Approaches to the Baxter Bridge over the Shuswap River near Ashton Creek on
the Trinity Valley Road were completed. Kempton Bridge on the Whitevale Road
was reconstructed. The old Shuswap Bridge at Shuswap Falls Dam, built in 1929,
was successfully demolished by cutting the prime chords with powder on the south
end of the span, allowing the truss to tumble 80 feet into the gorge below to the
foot of the dam. The whole tedious operation was completed without inflicting
any damage to the vital works at the dam.
Buildings
An electrical contract to facilitate needed expansion at Yard 3 at Vernon
was completed. New fuel-dispenser units were installed at the Cherryville maintenance depot. In September the Department took occupancy of the newly completed maintenance establishment in Vernon.
Kelowna District
Roads
Maintenance—All roads were maintained in generally good condition throughout the year.
An extensive paving programme required preparation of approximately 30
miles of road, which included ditching, widening, and base strengthening.
Spring flooding was controlled such that property damage was minor.
Reconstruction—One-half mile of Princeton Avenue was relocated and
widened; one-quarter mile of Solly Road intersection (Summerland) was relocated;
and 2 miles of Big White Road were reconstructed and gravelled.
Surface treatment—Twenty miles of gravel roads were sprayed with MC2.
Snow removal—Below-average snowfall and less slippery conditions were
encountered throughout most of the season.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained in satisfactory condition. There were no structures built.
Penticton District
Roads
Maintenance—Standard maintenance was carried out during the year. Numerous side roads were upgraded by minor reconstruction and approximately 12
miles of coldmix paving were accomplished. Dust layer was applied to 45 miles
of orchard and other gravelled roads.
The snowfall was normal, and no extreme snowfalls experienced; however,
the district still had to maintain a seven-day-per-week shift. All main roads were
maintained well and kept open at all times.
Construction—In this category, 15.9 miles of minor roads were upgraded;
4 miles of East Skaha Lake Road were strengthened, widened, and paved with
plantmix; 1.7 miles of truck lane were completed on Waterman's Hill in preparation to plantmix paving; 0.5 mile of Road 18 in Oliver was constructed; 1 mile
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 115
of upgrading done to the Osoyoos Golf Course; 1 mile of upgrading done on Road
40, Princeton to Summerland. Summers Creek road was reconstructed due to
flood conditions.    Many other side roads were lost due to flood conditions.
Bridges
Due to flooding conditions, 16 bridges were reconstructed and upgraded, six
of them were on Road 40, Princeton-Summerland; and seven other bridges were
upgraded. A new concrete pier was poured on the Ashnola (old Railway Bridge).
Brown's Bridge on Road 18 was taken over and upgraded for traffic use by the
Department. The King truss at Hedley was removed and replaced with a double-
single Bailey bridge.
Floods (Spring of 1972)
High flooding was inevitable, weather conditions were ideal, in order to get
a maximum run-off over an extended period of time. Approximately two months
of time were spent with the local forces on upgrading weak sections of the Keremeos
Dyke. However, a section of Luttins' Dyke broke through, and it was necessary
to build an auxiliary dyke near Daly Drive in Cawston in order to save Cawston
Roads. Highway 3, approximately 8 miles west of Keremeos, was under 3 feet
of water for approximately 1,000 feet. Traffic was detoured up Highway 5 for
approximately eight hours until Highway 3 was restored. Princeton-Summerland
Road was impassable for most of the summer due to bridge and road reconstruction. Summers Creek Road was practically rebuilt throughout its entire length.
Beach Road in Chopaka was washed out completely. All bridges on the Similka-
meen River were under critical conditions during peak flooding. The old railway
bridge at Paul Creek was shifted on one abutment. Highway 5 was impassable
for short periods and one section at Allison Creek was washed out and a temporary
detour and bridge were put in. Towers subdivision on the Hope-Princeton Highway was also under water and some roads had to be restored. On the East Osoyoos
Lake Road, 1.2 miles of road had to be raised approximately 3 feet.
Osoyoos Lake was at its maximum high of 915.4 (not tied to geodetic) and
Okanagan Lake was 0.5 feet above its high tolerance. Generally, throughout the
district, there were many other minor roads under flooding conditions.
Buildings
Minor renovations were done to the Keremeos and Princeton shops.
Merritt District
Roads
Maintenance—Following one of the most severe winters in many years, the
district had to face one of the worst spring run-off periods since 1948. Every
section of the district, with the exception of the Boston Bar area, suffered much
in the way of flood damage to highways and bridges.
Highway 8 Merritt-Spences Bridge was hardest hit of the main routes. Tula-
meen area had considerable flooding in the townsite and considerable road and
bridge damage.
Nicoamen River crested on May 29, 1972, causing considerable damage and
endangering both the highway and Canadian Pacific railway bridges. In June the
Thompson River came over the concrete walls just west of Nicoamen River to a
 C 116 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
depth of 2 feet on Trans-Canada Highway 1, and sand bags were placed three
high on top of the wall to allow traffic to move through a single line.
Considerable work was carried out in the Logan Lake-Highland Valley area
under Projects 2139, 2248, and 2254.
District forces improved several sections of Highway 8 and late in the year
Mile 0.0 to Mile 0.7 was reconstructed in conjunction with the CPR for widening
of their road-bed.
The winter period was comparatively easy with very light snowfall throughout the district, but we did have severe icing conditions at times, creating some
problems.
Bridges
Six new timber bridges were constructed and four reconstructed. Major and
minor repairs were made by district bridge crews on several other structures, and
considerable repair work resulting from extreme high water.
Ferries
North Bend ferry had a good year with only minor repairs and maintenance.
Lytton ferry was out of service from May 13 to July 10 due to extreme high
water.   There was much damage to landing-ramps and one tower.
In the over-all picture, the district had a very good year.
Lillooet District
Roads
Maintenance—In the Clinton area Gang Ranch Road was straightened and
regraded for several miles, along with Big Bar Lake Road, both of these roads
carrying increasing logging traffic each year. The roads accessing the north and
south sections of Green Lake were further rebuilt with future intent of paving.
Ashcroft area saw brush removal and weed-spraying, and further upgrading of
Loon Lake Road being carried out. Lillooet crews worked on slide-prevention
maintenance on catch roads and regraded and brushed out some of the numerous
back roads, rebuilding a 2-mile section of ranch road in the Fountain Valley.
Goldbridge crews upgraded roads in the Bralorne, Gun Lake area, special emphasis
being placed on slide protection; Seton Portage roads were regraded, ditched, and
brushed out.
Construction and surfacing—Ten miles of third lanes were constructed on
Highland Valley Road, as well as 5 miles on Kelly Lake Road, both being to
facilitate heavy traffic from the mines. Kelly Lake Road gives access to the British
Columbia Railway for the concentrate hauling. Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway
was reconstructed along Pavilion Lake, thus approximately one-half of the 47 miles
from the Cariboo Highway to Lillooet being reconstructed to date. Green Lake
Road along the north shore of the lake had a further 3 miles reconstructed and
paved. Kelly Lake Road had 4Vi miles of paving completed from the Clinton
end of this road. North Bonaparte Road had a mile of paving completed. Some
15 miles of Cariboo Highway were paved and strengthened, thus completing a
two-year project for third-laning between the Loon Lake turn-off and a point 3
miles north of Clinton.
Snow removal—Comparatively light snowfall was experienced throughout the
Lillooet District.   However, due to the lack of snow, severe icing conditions built

C 117
up on the Lillooet to Bralorne Road, but all roads were kept in reasonable condition, with none having to be closed due to slides.
Ferries
The reaction ferry at Big Bar was kept in service through the summer and
fall months, while a cage is used for passenger transportation during the winter.
Williams Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—The spring and summer maintenance programmes were normal, with a minimum of flooding problems as rainfall was light.
The winter precipitation was unusually light, with little snow cover. However,
higher-than-normal daytime temperatures produced considerable highway icing, so
that greater amounts of salt and sand were applied than in average years.
Minor maintenance items included brush-slashing on major side roads out of
100 mile, excavation and repair of large frost-boil sections of the Cariboo Highway
south of Lac la Hache, and application of dust layer on 30 miles of road out of
100 Mile House, Bridge Lake, Williams Lake, Likely, and several locations to
Anahim Lake on the Chilcotin Road. Fourteen miles of fencing were completed
on the Cariboo Highway.
Construction—Major construction projects were undertaken on Canim Lake
Road, Horsefly Road, Likely Road, Horse Lake Road, 93 Mile-Lone Butte Road,
Meldrum Creek Road, and Chilcotin Road west of Alexis Creek, east of Anahim
Lake, and east of Hagensborg.
Minor projects were completed on Dog Creek Road, Horse Lake North Road,
Redstone-Chezacut Road, Tatlyoko Road, Beaver Valley Road, Back Valley Road,
and Rainbow Road.
Work, too, was carried out for the Lands Branch on three subdivisions at
Sulphurous Lake, Dog Creek Road, and the Essler Subdivision on the Chilcotin
Road.
Roads were partially completed to Hagensborg Airport and Walker Park at
Bella Coola.
Flood-damage repair required installation of a 7-foot culvert under the Cariboo Highway at Forbes Creek, Mile 122.
Paving—Roadmix paving was applied to the main street in Lone Butte and the
subdivision areas of Pine Valley, Commodore Heights, and Glendale out of Williams Lake.
Pulvimix paving was extended on the roads to Likely, Horsefly, Canim Lake,
and Horse Lake.
Hotmix asphalt overlays were applied on Dog Creek Road and South Lakeside Road on the outskirts of Williams Lake.
Bridges
Four structures over 50 feet in length were completed—Brown, Copeland,
Widsten, and Wright. Eight smaller bridges were completely rebuilt, these were
Tweedsmuir, Miller, Lemon, Deka Lake, Waddington, Wheeler, Taylor Lake, and
Homathko 2. The old King truss bridge at McClinchie was so badly damaged by
an overload that a 90-foot Bailey bridge replacement was installed in its place.

REGION 3
(J. W. Nelson, Regional Highway Engineer, Nelson)
Nelson, Rossland, Grand Forks, New Denver, Cranbrook, Fernie,
Golden, and Revelstoke Highway Districts
Nelson District
Roads
Maintenance—Spring was late due to heavy snows over the winter of 1971/72.
Run-off was high and considerable flood damage occurred adjacent to numerous
small district streams, as well as the Goat and Salmon Rivers. Protection work
was carried out as required, and remedial work undertaken later in the fall and
winter. Early spring road maintenance included ditching, grading, shoulder maintenance, and signing. Steel posts were used to replace wood on a number of main
highway signs, and to date, has resulted in much less vandalism. A programme of
delineation of major highways was commenced and is continuing. Dust control was
carried out on 70 miles of secondary road, using bunker oil or asphalt. Four miles
of the Emerald Mine Road and 4 miles of the Trail-Pend d'Oreille Road were
treated with liquid calcium chloride. Slashing of brush again was carried out on
many roads, with use of chemicals being limited to selected areas. Roadside rest
areas were maintained throughout the summer, with more development work still
being carried out. Two screening plants worked throughout the summer and fall
preparing winter sand and material for roadmix and sand-seal operations. Salt-
sand mixes were prepared for winter use during screening operations.
Construction—The Sanca to Boswell project was continued with grade now
completed to Destiny Bay; 1.1 miles of this section were roadmixed.
One-half mile of Highway 6, Ymir to Salmo, was widened in rock, preparatory
to paving which was carried out in late summer under contract; 1.2 miles of Ymir
Townsite streets were paved at the same time. During the summer, 4.4 miles of
the Euphrates to Ymir section of Highway 6, and 3.8 miles of Highway 3a,
Kootenay Bay to Creston, were sand-sealed. Also, 1.3 miles of secondary road
were constructed on new routes and 0.75 mile was reconstructed; 17.1 miles were
improved by ditching, widening, and gravelling; 19.5 miles of existing paved surface
were sand-sealed; and 10.5 new miles of new pavement created by roadmix or
invert priming.
Snow removal—Snowfall was unusually light throughout the district and
winter maintenance was routine. Some snowslides occurred on the Salmo to
Creston, one major series of slides in late December resulting in a 48-hour highway
closure. Seven-day double shifts were worked throughout the winter. Fairly
heavy quantities of sand were used, but salt use was less than normal.
Bridges
General maintenance was carried out on all district bridges as required. In
addition, the following was undertaken:
Lockhart Creek: A new steel and concrete structure was built, replacing
the existing wooden bridge.
Mill Creek (Harrop to Procter): The bridge was severely damaged by
flood waters in the spring and replaced by a wooden decked structure
on steel stringers.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 119
Sheep Creek: In April a two-car collision on the bridge resulted in its
complete loss by fire. A temporary crossing of the stream was
made, using culverts and fill; 130 feet of triple-single chord reinforced Bailey was then installed for the high-water period, and the
fill removed. After high water, the fill was put back in. During
the winter a standard widened Bailey was constructed as a second
span to provide two-way highway traffic facilities.
Taghum Bridge: New stringers, ties, deck, and wheelguards installed.
Work was carried out over nights to accommodate traffic.
Corn Creek, Erindale, and Porcupine bridges were redecked.
Ferries
Kootenay Lake, Harrop to Longbeach, and Glade ferries operated throughout
the year and the West Creston ferry from April 15 to Octboer 31. The schedule
hours of the second Kootenay Lake ferry were extended during July and August,
with long delays still occurring due to increasing traffic volumes.
Buildings
Extensive bracing work was commenced to strengthen the old section of the
Nelson shop.
Rossland District
Roads
Maintenance—Signing and road-surface maintenance received much emphasis
during the summer months, but brushing and roadside mowing, etc., suffered to
some extent due to the heavy work load occasioned by day-labour projects. One
project involved the moving of between 110,000 to 120,000 cubic yards of
solid rock.
The use of telspar signposts was extended to cover the entire heavy snow-belt
area. They proved extremely effective. The odd post was pushed off plumb by the
pressure of snow, but none were lost to any action other than vandalism. Their
telescopic capability kept the signs free from damage, but, more importantly, visible
to the public.
A vacuum-type sweeper proved inadequate for the clean-up of winter sand and
was replaced by a standard "rear-steer" street-sweeper which handles the job with
dispatch, particularly when used in conjunction with the high-pressure water truck.
We undertook an extensive programme of bituminous treatments of side roads
and main roads, including inverted prime of shoulders, roadmix, and sand-seal. We
used in excess of 200,000 gallons of MC2.
A switch from the use of regionally prepared crushed gravel to district screening for winter aggregates, plus the practice of hiring shift personnel, again points to
the need of an increase in our basic establishment as defined in November 1971.
Bridges
Two 30-foot steel-stringer bridges were constructed with concrete abutments.
One replaced an old deteriorated wooden span, the other was on a section of new
road.   One log-stringer bridge collapsed under load and was subsequently replaced.
 C 120 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Ferries
Remotely operated traffic lights and barriers, although subject to some vandalism, have eased the control of the ever-increasing traffic on the Castlegar ferry.
Replacing timber ties and deck on the ferry ramps at one time was a routine matter
during low water in late winter and early spring. Now we find we are at the mercy
of B.C. Hydro; our work area may be high and dry one day but under several feet
of water the next, as they manipulate the flow from the Hugh Keenleyside Dam.
Buildings
Other than minor repairs, increasing garage stock-storage space, and some
painting, there were no significant undertakings in this facet of our operations.
Grand Forks District
Roads
Maintenance—Brushing was carried out by hand and machine on Grand Forks
Franklin Road 30, plus preliminary work started on widening of same.
Major patching was carried out on Rock Creek-Kelowna Road 33 for 2 miles
north of Westbridge and shouldering was carried out on approximately 50 per cent
of the remainder of Road 33 from Rock Creek to Beaverdell.
Christina Lake frontage road and Highway 17a in front of Christina Lake
School were reshaped and ditched.
The spraying programme was very heavy throughout the district and some
areas showed growth of weeds almost too much for normal spray procedures.
Fencing of 9 to 10 miles of Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 3, as well as
placing of 23 cattle-guards, were installed.
Snowfall was lesser in amount, but we found that we used more salt than ever
and just as much sand, all of which was due to very extensive icy sections of
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 3.
Due to 3 to 4 feet of frozen ground, most of the roads in Grand Forks area
turned into small earth dams and had to have culverts installed where they were
never before needed.  This went on for about three weeks in late February.
Reconstruction, gravelling, shouldering, ditching, and asphalt mix were carried
out on 4 miles of roads in the valley south of Grand Forks; 10.15 miles of roads
were reconstructed without asphalt mix top from Phoenix to East Grand Forks.
Construction—12th Street Extension was totally constructed and paved for 0.5
mile south of Grand Forks to the new Department yard. This is now within the
new city boundary.
The new 0.3-mile Cemetery frontage road near Carson Corner west of Grand
Forks was constructed.
Removal of blast rock on the new Phoenix Junction section of Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway 3 was completed.
Paving—The follow-up of inverted prime was done for the second year and
applied on the Phoenix-Greenwood Road for 4 miles. The crush for this came
from the Granby Mining Co. at Phoenix.
The Valley roads south were paved mostly by hot plantmixed % -inch granular,
using MC2 bituminous, which we found to be quite soft at first as it was laid by
pavement-laying machine, but eventually reached a good hard strength,
v   - Beaverdell main: street (Highway 33) was paved with hot plantmix for one-
quarter mile. ■ ;-;..., <--. ■■

Bridges
The following work was done:
Blythe Bridge: Deck and ties.
Grandby Bridge: New pier and cribbing.
Franklin Bridge: Replaced concrete footing on centre pier, also new
stringers caps and railing.
Wilkinson Bridge: New nose piles and mudsill, plus some decking, all
damaged during spring flood.
Carson Bridge: Replaced decking, ties, two caps, and wheel guards which
were burned on Hallowe'en night.
Buildings
In the Greenwood Highways shop, the ceiling was insulated and completely
replaced, and south wall also insulated and outside sheeting replaced. The inside
was painted and most of the outside also.
The Rock Creek Shop was painted completely throughout.
New Denver District
Roads
Maintenance—The district had an extensive maintenance programme through
the past year. The abnormal spring run-off washed out sections of Balfour-Galena
Bay Highway, causing closures during the run-off. All these sections were reconstructed and riprap placed at problem areas and numerous bridges through the
district.
Considerable patching was done on Highway 6 south of New Denver. Ditching
and shouldering were carried out on all major highways in the district, and the
brushing and spraying programmes continued as required.
A fairly large fill failure on Highway 6 near New Denver was reconstructed.
However, major failures on Highway 6 south of Burton required soil investigation
by the Testing Branch. It is expected their recommendations will be implemented
in 1973/74.
Construction—Contracts were called for reconstruction of approximately 5
miles of Highway 6 at Slocan and approximately 13 miles of Highway 23 from
Halfway River to Galena Bay. In addition, district crews constructed 1.7 miles of
Highway 23 south of Halfway River; 3.2 miles were pulvimixed by the Paving
Branch from Falls Creek to St. Leon Creek.
Approximately 19 miles of plantmix asphalt were grader-laid by district forces
on Highway 6 north of New Denver. Several miles of minor roads in the Kaslo,
Nakusp, and Winlaw areas were constructed and blademixed.
Approximately 10 miles of the Kaslo-New Denver Highway were prepared for
pulvimixing, which was carried out by the Paving Branch. In addition, the Paving
Branch chip-coated Highway 6 from Nakusp to Edgewood and Highway 23 from
Nakusp to St. Leon Creek.
Bridges
The new Halfway River Bridge was opened to traffic and the Bailey span
removed. Contracts for the New Denver and Rosebery Bridges were awarded and
the abutments, piers, and steel installed by the end of March 1973.
The Cooper Creek, Davis Creek, Howser, and Dane Creek Bridges suffered
extensive damage from abnormal spring run-off.   These bridges were all restored
 C 122 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
through the year. The King truss over Whatshan Falls collapsed under load and
will be replaced in 1973/74. Minor bridges were reconstructed over Davis and
Whitewater Creeks.
Buildings
A three-bay extension to the equipment shed was constructed at Nakusp.
Concrete ramps were constructed at Edgewood and Nakusp, and installation of
chain-hnk fencing was commenced at both yards. A contract was awarded for the
construction of a maintenance establishment at New Denver, and the Public Works
Department prepared a tentative design for a shop at Kaslo.
Ferries
Lighting was installed at the MV Needles ferry ramps.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads, including pavement patching, which was normal on most sections, except on Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway 3 section near Tokay Cranbrook Overhead to Fort Steele
Junction and Wardner Bridge approaches. Grading was normal, ditching on Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 3, Moyie Hills section, was above normal. Replacement of old wooden culverts on side roads, installation of additional culverts, and
brush-cutting on main highways and some side roads were done as time permitted,
as well as widening and gravelling sections of side roads, as necessary, and when
men and equipment were available. Oiling or calcium chloride were applied on
side roads in front of residences. Frost heaving was normal. Maintenance and
installation of existing and new signs was a continuous job for most of year. Additional islands were constructed on main roads for signs. Delineator posts were
obtained and painted for installation in 1973. Wash-outs due to rains were filled.
All culverts were checked and cleaned out. The district manufactured 9,520 feet of
concrete no-post guard-rail, 50 bridge ends (400 feet), and 101 bullnose ends
(404 feet).
Snow removal—Snowfall was below average in all areas of the district. Winter
rains and extreme cold weather resulted in more men employed on winter shift work
to keep roads passable. This also resulted in more sanding required and use of salt.
All roads were kept open with very little or no delays. Icing conditions made
driving hazardous until we could take care of same. Winter shifts were maintained
on two 8-hour shifts, seven days a week, in all areas from December 1, 1972, to
February 28, 1973, and during March a patrol of three men was on at night and
week-ends to check for rocks and snow removal and sanding.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained as required, and inspection of all bridges was
made. All structures were washed off. Bridge railings were replaced or repaired
due to vehicle accidents. Removal of driftwood during high water was above
normal. Cleaning and straightening was done on some stream channels to prevent
wash-out during high water. Maintenance was very limited due to crew having to
work on Fernie District bridges and complete construction of Gold Creek, where
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 123
problems occurred which resulted in more work to construct this bridge, complete
abutments, and construct double-double Bailey bridge at Kikomun. Maintenance
of bridges has been neglected due to this extra work being placed on crew.
Buildings
Cranbrook shop was rewired, and electric tools, etc., were installed. Storage
buildings in Bone yard-site were dismantled and a new foundation was constructed
for erection of this building in Cranbrook yard.
Fernie District
Roads
Winter maintenance was much lighter than normal due to light snowfall and
low temperatures. Much greater use was made of chemicals than in previous
winters, with good results.
Shouldering, ditching, and delineation were carried out on Highway 3.
On Highway 3, shouldering was completed from Fernie to Elko preparatory to
plantmix in 1973. Sparwood Bypass was completed and roadmixed. Temporary
traffic islands and permanent lighting were installed at approach ramps at each end
of bypass.
Elk Valley Road 4 had 6 miles of gravelling completed, crushed gravel applied,
and roadmixing started by Headquarters pulvi crew. Project was abandoned due
to poor weather.
On Jaffray-Baynes Lake Road 9, 1.1 miles were reconstructed and 3.4 miles
roadmixed by district.
Kikomun Road 2 had 2.2 miles reconstructed and 7 miles roadmixed by
district.
Burton Lake Road 43 had 1.1 miles reconstructed, gravelled, and roadmixed
by district.
On Tie Lake Road 22, 3.6 miles were gravelled and roadmixed by district.
Cokato Road 28 had 1.1 miles reconstructed and gravelled, and is 85 per cent
complete.
Minor reconstruction of 1 mile of West Fernie streets was completed.
A 660-foot-long double-double, chord-reinforced, standard widened Bailey
bridge was launched across Kootenay River at Kikomun by Headquarters and local
bridge personnel.
On approach fills to Kikomun Bridge, 3,400 feet of no-post concrete guardrail was laid by contrator.
A reconnaissance and report were done on the possibility of reconstructing
Corbin Road.
The wooden Howe truss was demolished at Waldo due to Libby Pondage
flooding.
Newgate Road and Stone Road had 7.5 miles of right-of-way cat-cleared and
piled for burning.
Liquid calcium chloride was applied to 7 miles of road in the Jaffray area, with
excellent results.
Buildings
Tenders were called for the new Fernie shop, which will be located 3 miles
north of Fernie.
 C 124 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Golden District
Roads
Maintenance—Major clean-up of debris and rock brought down by the numerous large snowslides, which occurred during the winter of 1971/72, was carried
out on the Trans-Canada Highway east of Golden.
Following this, extensive flooding occurred in late May and early June. All
creeks ran at full flood and the Columbia River over-ran its banks in the Golden
area, flooding large tracts of low-lying land. Many residents were forced to
evacuate, and approximately 50 mobile homes had to be moved out of two courts
located 1 mile northwest of the town. In this connection, the Department constructed a 30-foot log-stringer span on a detour road to provide an escape route.
The amount of damage to property and roads was kept to a minimum by
"around the clock" clearing of rock and gravel channel beds, and clearing away
debris deposited at culvert inlets. Rock riprap was placed upstream to prevent
washing of north approach to Dutch Creek Bridge on Kootenay-Columbia Highway 95.
Routine maintenance was delayed until late July because of repair work being
carried out to affected roadways.
Pavement repair, extensive ditching, sign repair and replacement, crack filling,
guard-rail replacement, sweeping, vegetation control, mowing, litter removal, and
shouldering were carried out on the Trans-Canada and Kootenay-Columbia
Highways.
Grading, ditching, gravelling, sign maintenance, dust control, vegetation control, slashing and burning of rights-of-way, and culvert installations were carried out
on all roads.
The South Golden Overpass on Arterial 323r was opened to traffic in
December.
Additional lighting was installed under contract on Arterial 322r, Trans-
Canada Highway north of Golden, and a flashing signal light installed at the junction of Trans-Canada Highway 1 and Kootenay-Columbia Highway 95.
Under contract in Kimpton pit, 20,000 tons of %-inch and 10,000 tons of
%-inch gravel were crushed.
A total of 29,000 tons of Vi-inch and 9,300 tons of %-inch sand was screened
at Waitabit, Golden Hill, Canal Flats, Toby Creek, Athahner, Jean, Pasteur, and
Bellamy gravel pits.
Snowfall was light (72 inches at Golden to 127 inches at Quartz Creek) and
required little ploughing, but icing conditions and cold weather prevailed during the
winter months, requiring frequent sanding and chemical treatment. A total of
27,000 tons of sand and 1,500 tons of salt was used.
Construction—
Project 2144: A total of 3 miles of Toby Creek Road was relocated,
constructed, and gravelled to 50-mile-per-hour standard.
Project 2412: A total of 3.1 miles of side roads was widened, improved,
and gravelled.
Project 2446: A total of 5.6 miles of side roads and streets in unincorporated areas was improved, gravelled, and roadmix asphalt pavement laid.
Day-labour projects were delayed due to the flood repair work.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 125
Bridges
All bridges were cleaned and washed. The Golden South Overhead on Arterial
323R was opened to traffic in December.
Six wooden structures on side roads received major repairs to deck systems,
abutments, cross-ties, etc.
Damaged fence panels and posts were replaced on Quartz Creek, Donald, and
Park Bridges.
Bailey bridges at Czar Creek and Cummins Creek were removed as this area
is below the Mica Lake flood-line.
The top bracing was removed from Dutch Creek Bridge on Highway 93/95,
thus raising the clearance and eliminating constant repairs to damage caused by
overheight loads.
Oster Bridge over Hospital Creek on Oster Road was replaced by a 30-foot
log-stringer span, and the old structure removed.
Botts Channel Bridge over a high-water channel of the Columbia River was
replaced by a 154-foot pile-trestle span. Pilings were driven through holes cut in
the old deck, and deck system replaced a bent at a time, creating a minimum of
delay to the light traffic using the Brisco Road.
Three 48-inch-diameter multi-arch culvert pipes were removed from Hospital
Creek and replaced with a 30-foot log-stringer span in order to handle 20-year
flood-levels.
A sump pump settling well was completed at the Kicking Horse Dyke to empty
the 21-inch-diameter force main which drains Arterial 322r in the Town of Golden.
Revelstoke District
Roads
Maintenance—District crews placed emphasis on the upgrading of side roads
and subdivision roads.
Construction of a rest-stop area was undertaken at Three Valley Lake. Brushing on Trans-Canada Highway 1 was confined to bridge approaches west of Revelstoke. Trout Lake streets were improved by widening, ditching, and gravelling.
Auxiliary lanes were constructed with cement-treated base at Shelter Bay ferry
terminal. The guard-rail was removed from Trans-Canada Highway 1 east of
Revelstoke in preparation for a paving contract. Flood-damage repairs were completed at numerous locations, with 0.6 mile of reconstruction required at Mars
Creek on Nakusp-Mica Creek Highway 23.
An average snowfall of 216 inches was recorded over the past winter, with
very few road closures; extreme icing conditions, however, resulted in above-average
use of salt and sand.
Day labour—Roadmixing was completed on 4.33 miles of Revelstoke area
roads. Truck lanes were constructed on Trans-Canada Highway 1, 2.45 miles at
Greely, and 0.4 mile at Three Valley. Construction of the 1-mile section of Blanket
Creek Park access was also completed.
Work got under way on the eastern access to Revelstoke in late September.
Reconstruction was carried out on several side roads.
Bridges
Revision to the truss and interior bracing was carried out on Eagle River at
Kay Falls Bridge. Upper Salmon Creek Bridge was completely rebuilt due to flood
damage. Taft Underpass was dismantled.
 C 126 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1972/73
A new powder magazine was constructed by the bridge crew at Trout Lake.
They also completed the generator building extension and placed concrete between

MV Galena was on an intermittent schedule from the latter part of August to
the first part of October while repairs were being made to the propulsion uit. A tug
assisted for part of this time. Repairs to propulsion unit were again required from
October 22 to 26 and December 1 to 3. A regular Schedule was maintained during
the rest of the year.

Quesnel District
Roads
Maintenance—Extensive frost-boil repairs were carried out on Highway 97 at
Macalister. Also, numerous large rough areas on Highway 97 north of Quesnel
were levelled, with a majority of the levelling being carried out between Hixon and
Strathnaver.
Spot weed-spraying was carried out on Highway 97 over areas where the weeds
were not killed the previous year. Also, Highway 97 shoulders were treated with
soil sterilant from Australian south for 12 miles.
Oil as a dust palliative was distributed on 28.5 miles of residential streets and
feeder routes.
All guard-rail on Highway 97 was repainted and realigned.
Abbott Drive was reconstructed for 3.82 miles to service a Lands Department
subdivision.
Extensive brush-cutting was necessary on most side roads due to brush being
bent low by an ice storm in December.
Construction—Plantmix base pavement was placed with a grader on Maple
Drive, Fraser, Western Plywood, Nazko, and Quesnel-Hixon Roads to give 15.02
miles of new pavement surface.
Reconstruction of the Barkerville Road continued, with 7.1 miles ready for
crush gravel and a further 2.5 miles cleared and grubbed ready for reconstruction.
The Nazko and Blackwater Roads, along with other minor side roads, were
reconstructed to give a total reconstructed length of 37.9 miles, plus a further 8
miles of clearing on the Nazko Road.
Large slides at Wingdam, Hyde Creek, Red Bluff, Macalister, Baker Hill, and
Quesnel View were repaired.
A portion of North Star Interchange was built ready for paving to allow safer
access to Johnston Subdivision and the pulp-mill.

Heavy ice runs occurred in the Fraser and Cottonwood Rivers causing heavy
damage to the Soda Creek and Marguerite ferry ramps on the Fraser River and
necessitating blasting of ice jams in the Cottonwood River.
Prince George District
Roads
During the spring break-up we had no major frost-heave problems on the
trunk highway system. Unstable asphalt surface from the Mackenzie Junction to
the north end of the Pine Pass on Highway 97 necessitated a large expenditure in
hotmix grader patches.
A very fast run-off due to a heavy warm rain caused extensive damage to
shoulders on Highway 97 in the Pine Pass. One culvert had to be replaced, requiring a short detour, but the remainder of the damage was held to erosion along the
ditch-line.
High water from the Misinchinka River flooded two fairly large portions of
Highway 97 north of Honeymoon Creek Camp. The same flood floated away the
Misinchinka Bridge on Kennedy Siding Road, requiring installation of a completely
new 160-foot structure.
The fast run-off in the Prince George area caused many minor flooding and
erosion problems on local roads, but no major work or wash-outs occurred.

Major day-labour projects included completion of reconstruction of 13 miles
of main roads and hotmix grader-laid pavement on 14 miles of major side roads.
District crews upgraded and gravelled about 13 miles of local roads.
On Highway 97 (John Hart Highway) and Highway 16 East, 10,700 tons of
hotmix asphalt and 800 tons of coldmix asphalt were used for major patching.
From 41 pits, 432,000 cubic yards of gravel and 31,800 cubic yards of sand
were used for construction and maintenance, and 5,100 cubic yards of rock were
placed as riprap.
A total of 112,000 gallons of dust palliative was placed on local roads.
The winter was fairly mild with a lighter-than-usual precipitation. This required less snowploughing, but borderline weather conditions with many prolonged
freezing rains created icing problems and necessitated the application of much
chemical and sand on both highways and major side roads.

 C 130 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Pouce Coupe District
Roads
Maintenance—Winter maintenance problems were fairly routine, as snowfall
was normal and drifting conditions were limited.
Slide problems were experienced west of Mount Lemoray during the months
of January and February, and the highway was closed for short periods for clean-up.
All school bus routes were kept open on a regular basis.
The 1972 construction was shortened due to flood problems and extreme wet
weather, and we were unable to accomplish the amount of work laid out for
the season.
During June we had several bridge approaches washed out, and one Bailey
bridge was lost due to extreme high water and flooding.
During fall rains the several slide areas were worsened through saturation, and
will not be completely repaired until this spring.
Our pavement-patching programme was carried on during the summer, with
good results.
Dust control (decantoil) was done on 20 miles of gravel roads.
Brush and weed control and shoulder sterilization were carried out on approximately 100 miles of right-of-way.
Construction—Pouce Coupe River Bridge pier and abutment work was done
by district forces, and steel work was done by Ray Brittain Ltd.
Arras to Progress section construction is 95 per cent completed, but weather
conditions did not allow for the lime stabilization on this section.
District forces upgraded and roadmixed 3.1 miles of feeder roads, and upgraded and gravelled approximately 130 miles of farm settlement roads.
District forces widened shoulders, installed a 96-inch multiplate culvert in
Livingstone Creek, and constructed two revisions for the Paving Branch. The entailed area is approximately 11 miles east of Groundbirch to the west end of the
Arras project.
The district had approximately 80,000 tons of gravel crushed under contract.
Bridges
We constructed three new bridges, reconstructed two, and repaired 26.
Ferries
Clayhurst ferry operated through the summer and fall. It was removed due to
ice conditions on January 4, 1973.
Fort St. John District
Roads
Maintenance—The Fort St. John North Peace River area had a prolonged
spring break-up with considerable freezing and melting, causing freezing of many
culverts. Load restrictions were in effect between March 24 and May 12, 1972,
with a period in between when normal hauling was permitted. After break-up, dry,
warm weather followed and all roads dried quickly, making it possible to repair
flood damage with little difficulty.
The Atlin North area of the Fort St. John District had a late break-up and,
with the above-average snowfall and the sudden very warm weather, considerable
flood damage resulted. A number of major culverts washed out and one sizeable
bridge was lost.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 131
The following summer and autumn were very wet in the Fort St. John area,
making it difficult to maintain dirt and gravel roads. It seemed that just when
maintenance crews had road surfaces shaped up, a week-long rain would occur and
the total area would require grading again.
All necessary pavement, signs, and a good portion of drainage maintenance
was, however, completed.
The Atlin North area remained dry most of the summer, making it difficult to
keep the predominantly gravel roads in good condition.
The 1972/73 winter was unusually mild and calm, with few storms. The
snowfall in the Fort St. John area was above average; however, no difficulty was
experienced in keeping all roads in good winter-driving condition. Roads in the
Atlin North area were kept open, except for a 100-mile section on the south end of
Cassiar Highway.
Construction—The Fort St. John Highway District again completed a heavy
day-labour programme. Wet weather hampered work in some areas; however, the
district completed 36 miles of major construction of existing roads as well as 18.8
miles of new road on a new route which includes the 13 miles of the new Fort
Nelson-Fort Simpson Road. Also, various improvements, regravelling, grading,
etc., were done on 88 miles of district roads. The surfacing programme included
22.2 miles of cement-treated base, 20.2 miles of plantmix asphalt, 14.9 miles of
pulvimix asphalt (12.1 miles by Headquarters pulvimix crew), 25 miles of seal-
coating, 5 miles of calcium chloride surface treatment, and 14 miles of dust-control
oiling. Gravel-crushing was also a major item in the day-labour programme;
375,000 tons were crushed by contract and 95,426 tons by the Department crusher.
Photo shows old and new Good Bridge along main Highway 103. The structure spans
Alces Creek near the Alberta-British Columbia Boundary. The bridge was constructed by
the Fort St. lohn bridge crew with design and supply of the prestressed-concrete deck
stringer by the Bridge Design Branch. This structure consists of three 30-foot prestressed
box-stringer deck-section spans with a 30-foot roadway. The substructure is constructed from
pressure-treated fir material.   The deck was treated with raw linseed oil and then paved.
 C 132
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Bridge elimination (O'Brien Bridge): The Fort St. lohn District crews replaced the
deteriorating timber bridge on feeder Road 101 over Fort St. lohn Creek with 130 feet of
20-foot-diameter multiplate pipe. The structure was bedded in gravel and anchored at
each end by concrete end walls. The outfall is protected by a rock and concrete energy
dispersal basin.

Aitken Creek Bridge 49: Top photo with transit shows bridge-site only; bottom photo
shows the bridge almost completed. The structure was constructed during early 1973 by
the Fort St. lohn bridge crew. It consists of a 50-foot steel-stringer main span on treated-
fir piling and five 19-foot timber-stringer approach spans. The bridge serves the farming
area west of Aitken Creek.
 C 134 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Bridges
The Fort St. John Highway District bridge crews constructed or reconstructed
eight bridges; a total of 1,065 lineal feet, 470 feet being Bailey bridging. The two
unusual structures completed were the Tuya Bridge 172 on Telegraph Creek Road
51 (a 238-foot pile trestle and two 100-foot spans of DS chord-reinforced Bailey
bridge on steel H-pile piers in steel plate rock-filled bins and concrete caps), and
Good Bridge 12 on main Highway 103. This structure consists of three 30-foot
prestressed-concrete box-stringer deck-section spans on pressure-treated fir-pile substructure. The fence was fabricated locally out of H-steel and steel-beam guard-rail.
The deck was treated with linseed oil and paved.
In addition to the construction work, numerous district bridges were repaired
or received normal maintenance.
The bridge elimination programme included O'Brien Bridge 1 on Road 101,
which was replaced by 130 feet of 20-foot-diameter multiplate pipe with concrete
ends and an energy dispersal basin. This 20-foot-diameter pipe is the largest in the
Fort St. John area. In addition, Syms Bridge 31 on Road 281, Murdale area, was
replaced by a 5-foot culvert. Along the Atlin Highway 2, Glacier Creek Bridge 106
and Base Camp Bridge 102 were replaced by a 5-foot culvert pipe, and Indian
Creek Bridge 131 with a 48-inch culvert pipe.
Ferries
The Stikine River ferry was operational between May 24, 1972, and November 6, 1972, with only short interruptions caused by high water. An ice bridge was
used by traffic during the winter months.
Buildings
Maintenance yard reserves were established at Bob Quinn Lake and Tatogga
Lake along the Cassiar Highway Route 37. The sewer system was designed and
sewage lagoons were constructed at the Good Hope Lake Camp. In addition, a
welding-bay was constructed at the Fort St. John shop. Wiring, painting, and the
erection of an overhead crane will be done this year.
Vanderhoof District
Roads
Maintenance—Flood damage in the district was nominal considering the
extreme high water, problems being mainly in drift removal. Several wash-outs
were averted by the use of plastic spillways. Three roadside-table sites and three
litter-barrel sites were paved and improvements to all sites carried out.
District crews high-graded and gravelled 3 miles of the Bearhead Road, 0.8
mile on Lily Lake Road, 0.4 mile on the Chilco South Road, and reconstructed
0.4 mile on the Wiebe Road.
Repairs were completed on the two 15-foot-diameter multiplates which carry
the Sinkut River. The junction of the Bearhead Road was relocated and turn
lanes installed.
Two cattleguards and 5 miles of fencing were installed by the Department
with materials supplied under the fencing agreement with the Cattlemen's Association.
 REGIONAL REPORTS C 135
Construction—The Kenney Dam Road was reconstructed for paving in 1973,
Mile 1 to Mile 5. A contract was awarded for the crushing of 50,000 tons of
%-inch minus. Improvements were carried out from Mile 10 to Mile 60—right-
of-way, brushing, culvert replacement, and gravelling.
The 6 miles of reconstruction on the Germansen Road complete the rebuilding from Fort St. James to Pinchi Mine.
The Chowsunket Road was reconstructed for 1.1 miles preparatory to paving.
The relocation of the Sowchea Road in the new Provincial park was curtailed due
to extreme soil conditions and will be completed in two stages.
The district crews attained a respectable level of improvement in both personnel and vehicle safety.
Bridges
The three timber bridges on Highway 16 require extensive maintenance and
constitute a large expenditure each year. The 375-foot-long Nautley Bridge received new cross-ties, decking, and railing. The bridge crew assisted the Village
of Fort St. James in constructing a new bridge over Nahounli Creek. An application of linseed oil was applied to the surface of all concrete bridges and the
concrete curb and gutter on the Vanderhoof Arterial.
The Fort Fraser Overhead was scarified and resurfaced by headquarters
crew.
Project 758 was awarded for the Nechako Bridge at Fort Fraser. District
crews constructed and paved the detour road to the temporary bridge and installed
a traffic-signal system.
Mining-roads and Bridges
Flood damage on the Omineca Mining-road was extensive and delayed movement into the area until repairs were carried out.
A major gravelling and culvert replacement programme was undertaken
from Mile 38 to Mile 138.
The district bridge crew rebuilt the following bridges: Manson Creek, Salmon,
Twin Creek, West Fork, and Horseshoe. Fisher, Fortune, and Nina received
major repairs, and drift was removed from several other bridges.
Burns Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—District crews gravelled approximately 18 miles of side roads
in various locations.
Following spring break-up, extensive pavement patching was required on
Highway 16, west of Burns Lake.
Extensive flooding due to the heavy rains in mid-June caused considerable
damage in many locations, and was especially extensive on Colleymount Road 21.
Many sections of road were riprapped and 5 miles were ditched with a gradall
and regravelled.
Decker Creek below Highway 16 was riprapped.
Many culvert installations were done. Ditching with gradall was done at
the Priestly Hill Slide on Highway 16, and perforated pipe was installed and
drainage improved, which has brought the slide almost under control.
Roads in heavily populated areas were oiled for dust control.
 C 136 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
Snow removal—There was a less-than-average snowfall and all roads were
generally in good winter condition. Unseasonably mild weather at the end of
January made the roads very slippery. There was extensive sanding on side roads
and use of salt on the paved roads.
Week-end and night shift were utilized during the winter.
Construction—
Topley Landing Road 118, Section 2 (Topley North): Mile 4.0 to Mile
12.8 completed to pit-run gravel.    Multiplate at Strimbold Creek
installed.
Section 3: Mile 12.8 to Mile 18.3—Grading completed 95 per cent;
Mile 12.8 to Mile 18.8—Pit-run gravel 80 per cent completed.
Fulton River to Granisle Section: Mile 24.7 to Mile 30.6—Shoulder
widening and pit-run gravel; some ditching with gradall.
Yellowhead Highway 16: Relocations west of Burns Lake—Grading
75 per cent completed; shoulder widening, Burns Lake; 18 miles
west, ditching with gradall.
North ferry-landing: Completed and paved.
North Frangois Road 35: 14 miles of plantmix laid through windrow
proportioner.
Keefe's Landing Road 59: 0.2 mile of plantmix laid through windrow
proportioner.
Gerow Island 40: 0.6 mile of plantmix laid through windrow proportioner.
Yellowhead Highway 16 (Houston Overhead): 0.2 mile of plantmix laid
through windrow proportioner.
Bridges
Buck Bridge, which was damaged by the June flood, was repaired. One
steel stringer 60 feet long was replaced.
Gallacher Bridge was reconstructed.
Severson Bridge was reconstructed.
Walcott Foot Bridge had new piling driven under the towers and the river
bank riprapped.
Portions of the Burns Lake trestle and Sheraton Overhead were resurfaced
by the Bridge Branch.   Railings were painted.
The Houston Overhead was opened to traffic on November 27, 1972.
Additional work is required on the approaches.
Ferries
MV Jacob Henkel operated all year except for the refit. During this three-
week period a barge service was in operation; record high water on Francois Lake
caused some problems and did damage to the north ferry-landing. This was
repaired. Extensive repairs were required on the ferry ways. Many lines for the
bubble system were replaced. A new electric compressor was utilized on the
north shore.
Buildings
Additional bay of the Burns Lake shop was completed. The regional electrician completed new and upgraded wiring at various locations.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 137
Smithers District
Roads
Maintenance—Crews again devoted considerable time to the improvement of
the drainage systems of various side roads by installing new culverts and deepening
ditches.
In the Telkwa area, the Lawson gravel pit was cleared for use as a source
of crushed winter abrasives; clearing and fencing were completed on a dangerous
curve on Yellowhead Highway 16.
In the Hazelton area, 4 miles of the Kispiox Valley Road were reshaped and
crushed-gravel surfacing was put down. The Swan Road was brought up to
standard and gravelled. District and Paving Branch survey crews completed the
surveying in connection with relocation of part of the Hazelton-Kitwanga Road.
On Yellowhead Highway 16, considerable work was done near Skeena crossing quarrying rock and placing it in the Skeena River to repair damage done by
the extremely high river-levels in June and July.
Construction—Day-labour work in connection with the Paving Branch Project
S-6570, Hazelton to Carnaby, Highway 16, was completed early in the year.
Sections of the Hazelton-Kitwanga Road were widened and straightened out to
accommodate extra traffic using the route via Cranberry to reach the Stewart-
Cassiar Highway.
On the main log-haul route from the Babine Lake area, some new road was
brought into use on the Babine Lake Road and 5 miles of the Burnt Cabin Road
were cleared and widened to eliminate a number of sharp curves.
Snow removal—There was less snowfall in the Smithers District compared to
the previous winter, but more than average. Because much of the snow fell in
frequent small amounts at temperatures only slightly below freezing the use of salt
on the paved highway increased.
Heavy rains and mild weather in the Smithers area in January saturated the
snow and caused severe icing conditions at many culverts. The steamer was in
constant use until early April.
An almost complete absence of snow or rain in the last half of February and
through all of March created ideal conditions for an early spring break-up, and
side roads dried up quite rapidly.
Bridges
Besides general maintenance on bridges in the area, the bridge crew carried
out some major improvements.
During the period that the road restrictions were in force the entire deck
system of the Kispiox River Howe truss was replaced.
The old wooden structure at Two Bridge Creek on the Telkwa High Road
was dismantled and replaced with 80 feet of double-single Bailey bridge.
On the Babine Lake Road, Gonokwa Bridge was damaged by an excessively
heavy load and had to be rebuilt.
The Headquarters surfacing crew put new concrete surfaces on the decks of
Boulder Creek East Bridge and the Moricetown Overhead.
Ferries
Normal seasonal operation of the Cedarvale recreation ferry commenced in
early May. In September, additional relief operators made it possible to extend
the daily operating hours.   While the ferry was laid up for the winter it has been
 C 138
HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1972/73
rebuilt to accommodate four vehicles.    New apron barges and Bailey bridge approach ramps are now on hand for the coming season.
Buildings and Yards
Larger fuel-storage tanks and new fuel pumps were installed at the Hazelton
yard.   Work was continued on the new assembly room and foreman's office.
Smithers garage heating system is being converted to overhead gas-fired
heaters.
Terrace District
Roads
Maintenance—Surface and drainage improvement work were carried out to
correct many problem areas throughout the district. Roads in the suburban areas
were oil-treated to assist in dust control.
Flooding by the Skeena River in June and general flooding due to heavy rain
in October disrupted our maintenance and day-labour programmes while clean-up
and restoration were undertaken.
Construction—Bridge approaches and channel-grading work were undertaken
at the Kasiks, Exstew, and Terrace Bridges.
Additional widening of Yellowhead Highway 16 west of Terrace was carried
out to accommodate proposed CNR passing-track construction.
The Kyhex Bridge approaches were surfaced with coldmix, machine-laid
asphalt to allow opening of the structure to traffic.
One mile of new road was constructed to extend Krumm Road and give
access from Highway 25 to the residential area of Thornhill.
The following Headquarters contract projects were started this past year:
Kalum Bridge approaches (2.07 miles), Kalum to Shames section (11.66 miles),
Terrace Bridge (substructure), Kalum Bridge (substructure), Shames Bridge (substructure), and Kasiks Bridge (substructure).
Snow removal—A late spring (1971/72) kept our snowploughing equipment in use and snowslide areas active up to April 26, 1972.
To the end of January 1973, snowfall in all areas was above average, this
trend changed to below average in February and March, beginning an early spring.
Bridges
Two log-span bridges in the Rosswood area were reconstructed and the
bridge crew were generally kept busy repairing the many timber structures in this
district.
Ferry
Ferry service at Usk was provided by reaction ferry during the summer
months and aerial basket in the winter.
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance and repairs were carried out on Yellowhead Highway 16; our main programme being reshouldering, weed-spraying, and
river-bank protection.   The Port Edward Road was subject to many landslides.
General maintenance was carried out on all the main roads on the Queen
Charlotte Islands, and several main roads were improved.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
C 139
The district continued to upgrade and improve the Stewart—Watson Lake
Highway.   Some weed-spraying and grass-seeding were undertaken.
Construction—
Rupert area: Construction of an access road to Rainbow Lake from the
Yellowhead Highway was completed, and work begun on an access
road to the ski-hill. A section of the Yellowhead Highway in the
vicinity of Tyee was constructed, gravelled, and paved. At Kin-
eolith, in a particularly remote area, a road was constructed for
the Indian Band from the village to the deep-water dock.
Queen Charlottes: At Tlell, work was begun on an access road to the
park, approaches for the new bridge at Tlell were constructed, and
the old Wiggins Road reconstructed.
Stewart area: The Stewart to Meziadin re-alignment and construction
were continued on the Cassiar Highway south of the Nass Bridge,
a continuing project, with 4.3 miles completed.
Snow removal—Average and below-average snowfalls were experienced in
all areas, with the exception of Stewart, which received 50 per cent more snow
than last year. Yellowhead Highway was relatively free of snow slides, but the
Stewart area had several closures. The Department maintained the Cassiar Highway from Stewart to Meziadin Lake and south toward Hazelton from its new
establishment on Meziadin Lake.
Bridges
A three-span log-crib log-stringer bridge was built for the Department of
Indian Affairs at Kincolith, and deck repairs made on several bridges in the
Stewart area. In the Queen Charlotte Islands all materials have been assembled
on the site for a new glue-laminated six-span bridge across the Tlell River.
Ferries
The Department continued to make subsidy payments to the Prince Rupert
Ferry 1967 Ltd., which operates the ferry between Digby Island and Prince
Rupert, and the Misty Island Transportation Co. Ltd. for the ferry which provides
a service between Graham and Moresby Islands on the Queen Charlottes.
Buildings
The Regional carpenter crew, with the assistance of the District bridge and
maintenance crews, constructed a salt shed at Masset and a dry-sand shed at
Prince Rupert. Steel shop buildings were erected at Stewart and Meziadin Lake,
which will be completed in 1973.
