 HIGHWAYS REPORT
REPORT OF SENIOR ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER
H. T. Miard.
Respectfully submitted herewith is the Annual Report of the Department of Highways for
the fiscal year ending March 31, 1974.
Normal progress in road and bridge projects was attained. Surfacing accomplishment
was above average, although less than last year's
record production. Weather and in a few cases
problems of supply reduced the mileage anticipated.
Two"1) impressive new river crossings were
opened to traffic—the Mission Bridge over the
Fraser and the Knight Street system joining
Vancouver and Richmond. Both had noteworthy construction safety records.
Summer maintenance was normal, except
for increased complaints about dust on unpaved
roads. The Summer Employment Programme
was worth while and much additional useful
maintenance was accomplished.
A record snowfall and a record snow-pack
resulted in many snowslides in the winter of 1973/74. An Avalanche Task Force,
comprised of experts, was established to study safety measures, warning systems,
and avalanche control.
Neon signs were erected at Golden and Revelstoke to advise travellers of the
condition of Rogers Pass.
Increase of traffic continued on all our roads. In some areas this is critical.
Rezoning applications, which would lead to establishment of developments of the
type generating high traffic volumes on through highways were carefully examined,
and often refused. People not directly involved seldom appreciate the knowledge
and time required to assess the effect of such a development on the transportation
system.
The Department spent considerable time and effort in designing street networks
in many areas to serve local needs, and relieve the through routes. Success of the
scheme depends on agreement by the municipalities or regional districts who were
involved with the planning, and on implementation of the network over a reasonable
time.
The Department is faced with increasing costs which are accelerating. Besides
increased labour costs, large increases in the cost of fuels, lubricants, parts, and
materials occurred in the fall of 1973. Some items will be in short supply in 1974.
Design of projects now requires a longer period. More people and more
authorities are becoming involved. While the Department always consulted with
involved departments, protection of the environment is now being thoroughly investigated, requiring additional time.

 B  12 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
Considerable staff time was involved in preparing data to further negotiations
with Ottawa in regard to financial assistance for road work in certain areas of the
Province, particularly in regard to the Northern Development Package.
I should record again the faithful efforts of all the Department employees—
officials and staffs in Victoria and in the field, and the crews in the field. In the
fiscal year above, 52 employees received the 25-year continuous service award, and
retirements with exceptional service records were as follows:
R. V. Smith, Road Foreman 1 in Prince George, 39 years;
W. H. Krebb, Machine Operator 6 in Salmon Arm, 38 years;
H. George, Regional Mechanical Superintendent in Nelson, 35 years.

 REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER
B  13
REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER
April 1, 1973, initiated the commencement of an extremely good construction season
which extended well into the fall, enabling an
appreciable Day Labour Programme to be
successfully completed. The Summer Employment Programme provided the highway districts
with an additional labour force for projects that
would not normally have been undertaken.
The Maintenance Management Programme was extended and further personnel
appointments made to improve the efficiency
of the programme.
Heavy snowfalls were recorded for October and November 1973 at all levels and
continued in the higher elevations for the remainder of the winter, causing dangerous
avalanche and slide conditions resulting in highway closures. Such closures were kept to a
minimum by the efficiency of the maintenance
r. o. Harvey. crews.   At the lower levels, the winter in the
early part of 1974 was much milder, but quick freezing and thawing temperatures
caused dangerous highway surface conditions necessitating the abundant use of
sand and chemicals to keep the highways as safe as possible for traffic.
In April 1974 the jurisdiction of the British Columbia Ferries Division was
transferred to the Department of Transport and Communications, but this Department continued to operate the ferry service it had managed prior to the Division
being incorporated into the Department. Traffic-growth rate on the Highways ferries
continues at approximately 10 per cent for both vehicles and passengers.
The Property Negotiations Branch settled 706 claims for a value of more than
$5 million on the acquisition of highway rights-of-way and other property for the
Department.   A further $524,000 was expended on legal surveys.
Provincial highways now total 27,754 miles, of which 1,155 miles are classified
as arterial and secondary highways within municipal boundaries. The mileages of
trunk and main highways remain the same at 4,031 and 2,141 miles respectively,
but the total mileage of paved highways has increased to 9,060 miles.

 B  16 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
The Maintenance Management Programme was extended to incorporate most foreman areas in Regions 2
and 3, as well as all foreman areas in the Lower Mainland
and Vancouver Island. The appointment of a Maintenance
Management Engineer at Headquarters and Maintenance
Methods Engineers and Technicians in each of the regions
will ensure that the programme will be pursued vigorously
and the ultimate benefit will be a more efficient and
economical maintenance of the highway system.
Total cost of maintaining the 22,000 miles of road,
3,300 bridges, and 38 ferries was $62,145,540.54.
In many parts of the Interior,  early  snowfalls  in
October and November 1973 resulted in record accumu-
p. b. Maccarthy. lations for that time of year.   By the end of 1973, milder
weather conditions had once again prevailed in most parts of the Province.
During the first three months of 1974, heavy snowfalls occurred, particularly
at the higher elevations, and these resulted in one of the heaviest snowpacks and
water-equivalent values on record by April 30. The possibility and threat of a
major flood in the Kamloops, Prince George, and Lower Fraser Valley areas during
the early summer months loomed very large indeed.
Heavy snowfalls over the Rogers Pass section of the Trans-Canada Highway,
and particularly Highway 16 between Terrace and Prince Rupert, in late January
were responsible for many slides and avalanches resulting in highway closures for
varying periods.
At approximately 8 a.m. on Tuesday, January 22, 1974, the North Route
Service Station Cafe, located on Highway 16, 29 miles west of Terrace, was inundated and destroyed by a snow avalanche. Of the eight people in the cafe at the
time only one survived. Included in the dead was Department of Highways Grader
Operator A. MacDonald, of Terrace.
Subsequently a task force was appointed by the Honourable Minister which
would study, investigate, and make recommendations as to what measures could
and should be taken to protect the highway system and prevent hazardous avalanche
occurrence. Besides Chairman D. D. Godfrey, other members of the task force
were Peter Shearer, Roger Tremblay, and Stephen G. Evans.
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.
Under the Summer Employment Programme, approximately 1,200 men and
women, mostly students, were hired and much beneficial work was accomplished in
districts which normally would not have been undertaken. This programme
accounted for $6,834,000 in wages, materials, and hired equipment, which is the
equivalent of 550,000 man-hours of work.
ROADSIDE DEVELOPMENT
During 1973 the three hydroseeding crews completed the seeding and fertilizing
of approximately 3,200 acres. In addition to this, 954 acres were seeded and
fertilized by contract.  Two contracts were undertaken during the year, the largest
 REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER
B  17
being 700 acres on the Stewart-Watson Lake Highway. The second contract was
on Highway 97 in the vicinity of Alexandria.
Two large landscaping projects were undertaken in conjunction with the
Construction Branch. These were at the Knight Street, Mitchell Island, and Bridgeport Interchanges, and on the Nelson Arterial Highway. These were both designed
by firms of consultant landscape architects, with the Knight Street landscaping being
constructed by contract and the Nelson arterial work being undertaken by summer
employment crews supervised by Highways personnel.
The landscaping of the Pat Bay Highway was virtually completed and is now
a maintenance project within the Saanich District.
The rest area programme continued with several new sites being added,
bringing the total up to 137 sites, ranging from simple roadside table-sites to larger
developments having toilets, drinking-water, and full picnic facilities.
CENTRELINE AND PAVEMENT MARKINGS
During the summer of 1973, five centreline marking crews and two crosswalk
marking crews worked throughout the Province. With good weather prevailing most
of the time, all the programme of painting for directional dividing lines and edge
lines as planned was completed.
The work completed accounted for 6,096 miles of yellow centreline marking,
2,449 miles of white edge marking, and 1,067 miles of prelining. Materials used
were 112,846 gallons of yellow paint, 28,802 gallons of white paint, and 811,720
pounds of glass beads; 7,322 catseyes were installed and replaced.

A total of $79,109.24 was paid out on 246 miscellaneous claims.
With respect to British Columbia Ferries, 91 claims were paid out.
Fifteen cases which had gone to litigation were concluded as follows: two were
decided in favour of the Government, one against, eight cases were settled out of
Court, and four were dismissed.
There are 42 cases in various stages of litigation. In 11 of these the Government is the plaintiff.
It will be noted that the statistics of accidents involving Government vehicles
cover an 11-month period, ending February 28, 1974. Up to that date, Government
vehicles were self-insured. Effective March 1, 1974, all Government vehicles are
insured by the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. In order to coincide
with the insurance/licence-year, it is intended that all future reports, with respect to
accidents involving Government vehicles, will cover the 12-month period commencing March 1. All other statistics in the current report, and future reports, will cover
the normal fiscal year, commencing April 1.
 B 20
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
In order to compare properly this year's accident experience with 1972/73, the
total of accidents to March 31, 1974, has been calculated, this being 1,447, reflecting an increase of 29.2 per cent. This may be partially explained by an increase in
Government vehicles of 21.1 per cent, also many departments lease vehicles for
varying periods. Accidents involving leased vehicles are included, but the numbers
of leased vehicles are not. Another factor is that the first snowfall in the northerly
portions of the Province was fairly early, and is always reflected by an upswing in
accidents. Nevertheless, the substantial increase in accidents should be a matter of
concern.

REPORT OF CHIEF PROPERTY NEGOTIATOR
In the 1973/74 fiscal year, 706 claims were settled
and a further 525 were in the process of negotiation.
Arbitration of three cases was completed and proceedings
were started on eight more.
A total of $5,076,975.47 was expended on acquisition of highway rights-of-way and other property by the
Department.
Land acquisition for the Libby Pondage Project required an expenditure of $242,308.
There were nine sales by public auction and five sales
by public tender of surplus buildings. Recovery from the
sales amounted to $46,598.99.
During the period, 112 buildings and parcels of land
were under short-term lease or rental.    Gross revenue
from rentals was $62,186.89.

REPORT OF SENIOR PERSONNEL OFFICER
During the 1973/74 year the Department reached an
all-time high employment level of over 9,500 employees.
This was attributed mainly to the large student Summer
Employment Programme with this office receiving 1,108
applications and many thousand others being submitted
directly to the district offices.   The minimum employment
level was 5,157, which occurred in April.   These compare
to the 1972/73 figures of 6,146 and 5,102 respectively.
The majority of new employees was hired directly
within districts or branches for entrance level positions.
Departmental promotional opportunities required  1,042
postings,  of which  221   were processed by the  Public
Service Commission.
a. r. Limacher. During the past year, correspondence received in this
office totalled 12,311  and letters issued totalled 4,969.    As a comparison the
1972/73 totals were 11,412 and 3,792.
All work was handled by two Personnel Officers, with an additional one added
late last year, and a good support staff. Due to the increase in work loads, approval
was received to recruit a Personnel Officer for each region, and appointments are
now being considered.
Last year there were 40 retirements, 52 twenty-five-year continuous service
awards, and 24 deaths in service.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER
Herewith submitted are the reports of the Director of
Highway Design and Surveys, Senior Bridge Engineer, Director of Construction, Senior Paving Engineer, and the
Senior Traffic Engineer.
These reports clearly relate the extensive undertakings
and accomplishments of these branches within the 1973/
74 fiscal year. Despite the fact that there have been material shortages and labour disputes, the Bridge, Construction, and Paving Branches have had a very productive
year with the assistance of good weather.
Some of the highlights include the opening of the new
Mission and Knight Street Bridges over the Fraser River
on the Lower Mainland, the near completion of the four-
laning of Trans-Canada Highway 1 between Horseshoe
Bay Ferry Terminal and Taylor Way in North Vancouver. Paving of the relocated
highways and roads in the Libby Dam Reservoir area were completed as were the
many other projects depicted in the reports.

to Prince Rupert section of the Yellowhead Highway the
completion of four more bridges eliminating old wooden
Howe truss spans was a highlight for northern travellers.

Bridge Design
The major part of design work was directed to structures on the Upper Levels
section of the Trans-Canada Highway, the Yellowhead Highway, and the Island
Highway. Numerous designs were prepared for the replacement of older timber
structures in diverse areas throughout the Province.
Of particular note is the completion of the contract documents for the Lions
Gate Modifications involving the complete replacement of the north viaduct superstructure.
The following tabulates details of the programme:

 B 46 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
Bridge Construction
Thirty-seven new bridges were completed in the 1973/74 fiscal year. On
March 31, 1974, a total of 53 bridges was under construction and work had not
commenced on three others which were under contract. Particulars are given in
the accompanying listing.
This fiscal year was a good construction year. Labour strife was at a minimum, there being only one strike, which was in the local reinforcing-steel mill. This
slowed the supply of that material, but actually only affected a few of the projects.
Weather was generally better than usual and for a longer period of time. Because
of the nature of some of the projects there was a greater than normal activity during
the winter months.
During this period the construction industry experienced an unprecedented
escalation in prices as materials became scarce. Lead time required on the delivery
of structural steel to the fabricating plants in Vancouver doubled.
Four and one-half years of construction culminated in the opening of the
Mission Bridge, crossing the Fraser River at Mission. With its opening, the nearby
CPR bridge ceased carrying highway traffic, a function it had performed for 46
years. The official opening took place on July 7 with the Honourable David
Barrett, Premier, cutting the ribbon.
Two of the many grade-separation structures planned for the Mission area
were opened to traffic during the year. One of these, along with the Mission Bridge,
resulted in the virtual elimination of highway traffic disruption by the CPR in the
highway system in the Mission area. Meanwhile, construction commenced on two
other structures on the south approach to the bridge.
Progress at the Knight Street Bridge, crossing the North Arm of the Fraser
River in Vancouver, continued at a steady pace with the closure of the south branch
crossing being made in September. Official opening of the bridge took place on
January 15, the ribbon being cut by the Honourable Graham Lea, Minister of
Highways.
The Marine Drive Overpass, on the north approach to the Knight Street Bridge,
was opened to traffic at the same time as the latter. Opening of Bridgeport Road
Overpass, to the south of the river crossing, will not take place until later in 1974.
On June 1 the Stikine River Bridge was opened to traffic. This was the final
link on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway and replaced a cable ferry that only operated
when the river was clear of ice.
Some indication of the style of overpass being constructed on the Upper Levels
section of the Trans-Canada Highway became apparent as the steel work was
erected for five of them. Of the 17 bridges under contract, two were completed
and opened to traffic, while the two spectacular bridges at Nelson Creek and Cypress
Creek were completed, but opening to traffic awaited completion of approaches.
Working during the fall and winter, the contractor on the Clearwater River
Bridge on Yellowhead South Highway (No. 5) made excellent progress on abutment and pier construction. At this time of the year, rigours of cold weather are
accepted to take advantage of low water which greatly facilitates pier construction.
When completed in the next fiscal year the new bridge will replace the last of the
Province's old timber Howe trusses on that highway.
Five bridges on the Kamloops Bypass were incorporated into the highway
system at different times during 1973. Only one of these was constructed in its
entirety during the year.   Three were completed in 1973 and one the previous year.
Bridge construction follows closely behind highway construction as the Department constructs the Island Highway southward to Kelsey Bay from Port Hardy.
 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER B 47
During the year the substructures of three river crossings and one logging railway
underpass, all in the Nimpkish Valley, were constructed and ready to receive their
structural steelwork. These bridges are the first of 23 required on this new section
of highway.
Progress on the two extra-long structures crossing Pacific Highway and King
George VI Highway over the B.C. Harbours Board Railway near Cloverdale was
slowed by material supply and inclement weather. By March 31, only minor work
is outstanding at Cloverdale Overhead (1,350 feet long), at Colebrook Overhead
(1,260 feet long); 25 per cent of the deck remains to be completed.
The timber and asphalt plank deck of the eastbound lane of the 2,660-foot
CNR bridge over the Fraser River at Prince George was replaced with an open-grid
steel deck. This replacement was completed in two months, with complete closure
of the lane during the period.
In mid-December, work commenced on the construction of the piers and
abutments of the bridge that is to span the Skeena River at Kitwanga. Here again
construction was during the winter to take advantage of low water. Progress was
excellent and, by March 31, 70 per cent of the substructure was complete.
During the year, 11 bridges were under construction on Yellowhead Highway
(No. 16). Longest of these is the two-structure crossing of the Skeena River at
Terrace. By the year's end, all piers and abutments of the 780-foot flood channel
structure were completed and all but two of the piers of the 1,240-foot main channel
structure were completed. Steelwork fabrication for this structure had progressed
to the point where completed parts had arrived at the site and erection had commenced.
Fabrication and erection of bridge steelwork continued steadily throughout
the year. A large portion of the total 5,000 tons was produced and inspected by
British Columbia labour working through some 30 separate companies. Increased
prices and decreased availability of steel plates and shapes, the result of the heightening work demand, has made construction scheduling a most difficult task.
Two trends are apparent in the steel fabricated this year. First, there has been
an increase in the geometric complexity as typified in the cambered and curved
girders of the Murray Avenue Overhead. Secondly, there has been a considerable
increase in the use of weathering steel which requires no painting.
Perhaps of most interest to those involved in trucking has been the repetition
of a contract to raise the bracing and thus the vertical clearances to a minimum of
16 feet on seven of the steel through-truss bridges on the highway system.
An inspection of the plant manufacture of precast prestressed-concrete bridge
sections continued throughout the year. Total production included 85 box girders
or 3,070 lineal feet, 840 I-beams or 55,800 lineal feet, 420 lineal feet of hollow
concrete piling and 217 deck slab units, and one double-T girder 100 feet long.
Precast, prestressed-concrete girders were manufactured on site for Parsons
Bridge near Victoria and for two bridges at Williams Lake.
Nineteen bridge decks totalling 100,000 square feet were resurfaced during
1973/74 by application of a thin concrete overlay. Fourteen bridge decks were
restored by patching, and joint restoration was completed on three bridges.
Weather and site add to the dangers of bridge construction and it is gratifying
to note that work was virtually accident free.
The Bridge Construction field staff comprise a nucleus of about 30 persons. In
the period of greatest activity, the summer staff are augmented by civil engineering
students and graduate technicians.
Six of the staff are responsible for steel inspection in the fabricated plant and
for steelwork erection, two are responsible for the inspection of the manufacture of
 B 48
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
prestressed beams, and the remainder are responsible for the inspection of site
construction. While summer weather conditions are mostly ideal for working, the
field staff are called upon to execute the same high standard of vigilance under
weather conditions that are not so ideal. Work often continues in rain, snow, and
subfreezing weather.
The Bridge Construction field staff is augmented by consultant inspectors who
are generally only responsible for construction inspection of consultant-designed
structures.
In all, there were about 45 inspectors devoted to bridge construction in this
last year.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
The 1973/74 fiscal year was an active one for the Construction Branch. Some 27 projects were in progress with
a total expenditure for the fiscal period of $32,146,689.65.
The 27 projects in progress represented 115.63 miles
under construction with a total value of over $70 million.
New contracts were awarded on five projects totalling
14.27 miles and 11 projects were completed for 64.34
miles. A further 11 projects are continuing into the
1974/75 fiscal period and approximately $22 million is
required to complete them.
Reasonably good weather conditions allowed most
projects to progress late into the fall, and hence a number
of projects were completed before the winter season.
n. r. zapf. Some important highway projects under construction
are summarized below.
The Upper Levels Highway projects through West Vancouver, which involve
four-laning Highway 1 between Horseshoe Bay and Taylor Way, are nearing completion. The projects include several bridge and grade separation substructures as
well as many retaining-walls and interchanges.
An 18-mile section of the Northern Vancouver Island Highway 19 from the
Nimpkish River to the south end of Nimpkish Lake was completed, paved, and
opened to traffic in September. The project involved heavy rock excavation and
replaced a tortuous, winding section along the Bonanza Lakes. An additional
16-mile section south to Woss Lake is at present under construction, with completion expected in 1975. Further projects on this route should be called in the
near future to connect this work to the Island Highway at Sayward.
A project involving 200 feet of tunnel through difficult saturated fine-grain
soils in the City of Abbotsford was completed in October. A method of freezing
the ground ahead of tunnelling was used.
An 11-mile section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway 16 between
McBride and Tete Jaune was completed and opened to traffic in October. An additional 15-mile section immediately west of Tete Jaune is nearing completion. It is
the final section to complete reconstruction of the highway between McBride and
Tete Jaune.
The approaches to the City of Nelson on Highway 6 are complete and partially
opened to traffic pending completion of the overpass structures. Landscaping in
the area is continuing with the help of students on the Summer Employment Programme.
Some of our personnel were actively assisting the Maintenance, Design and
Surveys, and Geotechnical Branches during the 1973/74 fiscal year in various major
day labour and design projects.

 B 68 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
REPORT OF SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
The 1973/74 paving season started late due to unfavourable weather conditions, especially in northern
regions. Mid-season and fall weather conditions were
most favourable. A shortage of liquid asphalt materialized
during the summer, which caused a few delays and restrictions especially during July and August.
During the year, 331 miles of two-lane highway, 30
miles of which was on the Trans-Canada Highway, were
paved under contracts. Twenty paving contracts were
carried over from the previous season, while 29 new contracts were awarded.
Department pulvimix and sealcoat crews pulvimixed
96 miles, surface-treated 131 miles, and shoulder-treated
D. F. Martin. 143  miles.
The total expenditure of all work performed throughout the 1973/74 fiscal
year amounted to $17,109,849.
General research on the use of nuclear densometers for measuring pavement
densities was continued. Further studies were made in respect to temperature
cracking of the pavement relative to the use of Type A, B, and C asphalts. The
use of SC-5 type A asphalt cements was continued largely throughout the colder
northern and Interior regions. The smoothness factor of approximately 350 miles
of pavement was measured by the profilometer. The type of paver used as well as
the contractor undertaking the work appeared to influence the smoothness factor.

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.
J.H.Harding. Short-duration annual traffic counts were taken with
automatic equipment at approximately 900 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.
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 regular 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 should without having to venture onto the travelled lanes.
Over 154 detectors of "loops" have already been installed on the Lower Mainland
freeways and the programme is continuing.
Summer daily traffic volumes for 1973 show approximately 53,000 vehicles
on the Port Mann Bridge, 72,000 vehicles on the Second Narrows Bridge, 81,000
vehicles on Oak Street Bridge, 49,000 vehicles in the George Massey Tunnel, and
18,000 vehicles on the Okanagan Lake Bridge. Data from the permanent count
stations showed traffic increases in 1973 over 1972 of approximately 7 per cent
in the northern and 12 per cent in the southern Interior, 10 per cent in the Fraser
Valley, and 8 per cent on Vancouver Island.
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.
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 45 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 31 intersections throughout the
Province. Flashing beacons were installed at five intersections. Approximately
900 street-lighting luminaires were installed at intersections, highway interchanges,
and ferry-landings.   Electrical design work done in connection with the construe-
 B 74 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1973/74
tion of new ferry terminals and reconstruction of existing ones was done. 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.
Seven railway grade crossings were signalized in co-operation with the Federal
Railway Transport Committee and the railways under the Committee's jurisdiction.
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
radar speedmeter.
Fatal accidents occurring on British Columbia road and highways during the
year were again reviewed in detail and significant characteristics tabulated.

REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
PLANNING BRANCH
TRANSPORTATION SECTION
The Section undertook studies of major transportation
networks in 25 urban areas to provide for future access to
developable lands and accommodate changes in the intensity of land utilized for urban purposes. Of these studies,
seven were continued from the previous year and 18 were
initiated. This work involved the preparation of preliminary network proposals followed by ongoing communication between this Department and other Government departments, agencies, regional and municipal governments.
The practice of conducting traffic-pattern studies
using licence-plate numbers was continued and 12 such
studies were completed. Of these, 10 were concerned
e. b. wiikins. with vehicle travel into and through urban areas, while two
were conducted to evaluate the usage of major transportation corridors during the
hours of peak commuter travel. In this procedure, traffic movement is monitored
without interference with the travelling public.
A consultant was engaged to interview ferry patrons at the Swartz Bay, Tsawwassen, Departure Bay, and Horseshoe Bay terminals. This work was undertaken
in August at peak tourist season and over 41,000 interviews were conducted. The
information solicited included home base, origin, destination, travel purpose, and
travel frequency. A comprehensive computer analysis was undertaken and a
detailed report was prepared.
The screenline counting programme initiated in the Lower Mainland in 1972
was repeated in 1973 and extended to the Victoria area. It comprised the recording
of week-day peak movements of vehicles and persons across physical, land use, and
jurisdictional boundaries. These records provide a direct evaluation of commuter
travel and, when compared with records from previous years, they provide information on travel modes and travel trends in various sections of these communities.
Over 3,500 man-hours of screenline data were collected.
The evaluation of travel patterns on the principal highway system was continued and comprised roadside interviews at 10 strategic locations. Of primary
interest was summer recreational travel, including information on origins, destinations, and home base. The interview sites were located both on Vancouver Island
and in the southern Interior.
The information compiled from these interviews provides a direct measurement of current travel and recent year trends and forms a part of the analytical
framework used to evaluate future needs for inter-regional road facilities.
Counts were recorded to assess the quantity and type of traffic generated and
attracted to a wide variety of land uses, including shopping centres, single and
multi family subdivisions, fast food outlets, and many other types of land developments. The information was used in assessing the incremental impact of such land
uses on the surrounding transportation system. Over 500 man-hours of data were
collected, analysed, and reported.
During the year the professional staff was increased by one engineer and one
engineer in training.   The summer staff was also expanded and included 20 field
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
B 77
observers, together with six office staff whose duties included coding and preparation of field travel data.
The professional and technical staff continued to develop the specialized
computer programmes required for traffic-pattern analyses and they increased the
utilization of the WANG desk calculator in preparing tabular reports and statistical
analysis of travel data.
APPROVING SECTION
The Approving Office, together with the various regional and district offices,
dealt with 2,676 ordinary subdivisions, 629 controlled access subdivisions, 8,044
ordinary driveway applications, 981 controlled access driveway applications, 895
rezoning and land use contract by-laws, 335 setback permit applications, 5,504
utility permit applications, and 689 miscellaneous permit applications.
The complexity of the work increased during the year, especially because of
the Orders in Council respecting preservation of farm land. A start was made on
work toward reducing the time consumed in the approval process. Increased attention was paid to the approval of subdivisions in areas where natural hazards of
landslip, flood, erosion, etc., occur.
MUNICIPAL PROGRAMMES SECTION
During the past fiscal year the Municipal Programmes Section dealt with
numerous matters of common concern to both the organized municipalities of the
Province and the Department. A total of $146,798 was expended as the Department's share of the cost of maintaining secondary highways within the Province. A
total of $1,375,114 was expended as the Department's share of the cost of capital
work on these secondary highways. Negotiations were carried on with a dozen
municipalities concerning cost-sharing work on arterial highways, and with five
municipalities concerning cost-sharing work on bridges. A large number of changes
in classification were considered and 10 existing arterials were rescinded, 12 new
arterials were established, seven existing secondaries were rescinded, and three new
secondaries were established.
SYSTEMS PLANNING SECTION
Approximately 7,000 miles of road were photo inventoried this year. The
computerized information system was updated and modified to include current
information of the road inventory and status of projects. Various reports were
produced.
Investigations into ways of objectively evaluating pavement roughness were
continued and preliminary results reported.
Staff was involved in broad planning studies for a number of regions in the
Province, including joint Federal/Provincial studies.

During 1973/74 the Branch provided geotechnical,
inspection, and general material testing services for all
branches of the Department of Highways and to an increasing extent as a resource branch to other Departments of
the British Columbia Government. Departments and

TERRAIN EVALUATION AND ROUTE SOIL SURVEYS
There has been a great increase in demand for area soil surveys from the
Environment and Land Use Secretariat, Department of Lands, Department of
Housing, and Department of Municipal Affairs. Work was started on six such
projects which require at least an airphoto study with limited field testing, and,
where possible, a detailed inventory of soil types and report on the engineering
characteristics. One such detailed study involved 142 acres of proposed housing
development area at Merritt.
Soil surveys along proposed highway routes were done prior to the final design
for the purpose of analysing problem areas such as poor cut and fill stability conditions, and to make broad identification of soil types and availability of construction
materials. Investigations were completed or started on 34 projects with a total
length of about 260 miles. Investigations ranged from limited auger drilling to
comprehensive coverage using the information from airphoto interpretation, geophysical testing (seismic refraction and resistivity), drilling (diamond drills, augers
and airtracs), and test-pitting by backhoes.
Airphoto interpretation to identify landforms and general material types, as
well as to check for areas of instability and gravel deposits, is a preferred preliminary
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER B 85
for all route surveys. It was only possible this year to work on five such general
airphoto route studies because of the demand upon the geologists' and geographers'
time for terrain evaluations in connection with proposed housing developments,
general land use studies, and gravel pit prospecting.
Seismic refraction surveys for the purpose of locating the depth of soil strata
and bedrock surfaces involved about 54,000 feet of seismic lines. This work was
done for a number of projects as diverse as highway route surveys between Sayward
and Woss Camp, an area soil survey for a proposed housing development area near
Victoria, and the foundation investigation for the proposed Resources Building
in Victoria.
A Swedish 12-channel portable refraction seismograph that records on a moving film strip measuring to half a millisecond and a small computer with a digitizer
and plotter were added to the Branch equipment.
Exploratory drilling by diamond drill, machine auger, hand-powered auger, or
airtrac was done for route surveys scattered over the Province. Some of the more
extensive investigations were on Highway 16 between Terrace and Prince Rupert;
Fort Nelson to Petitot River; Highway 97 Kiskatinaw River crossing between
Dawson Creek and Fort St. John; Highway 19 between Sayward and Woss Camp;
Highway 3a from Kinnaird to Meadow Siding; and Highway 97 Penticton Bypass.
AGGREGATE INVESTIGATIONS
Work of prospecting for aggregate sources was continued, as was quality-
control testing of aggregates for surfacing, base course component, and concrete
mixes. It is becoming increasingly difficult to locate adequate aggregate resources
and it is anticipated that more effect will have to be spent on the investigation of
means to stabilize inferior-grade aggregates.
An electrical resistivity instrument was acquired to aid in the investigation
and evaluation of gravel projects. Development of a simple electrical resistivity
instrument is being carried out for use by the regional field crews for preliminary
assessment of gravel prospects.
Increasing use was made of geological analysis and airphoto to try and locate
gravel deposits in areas away from existing roads. A study was done in a 100-
square-mile area south of 100 Mile House and a major study is under way covering
a 900-square-mile area north and east of Fort St. John. In the last study, extensive
use was made of available information from well logs and from logs of seismic
shotholes which were made by oil exploration companies and which are filed by the
Department of Mines. A review is being made of airborne geophysical systems
which might be used for gravel detection in difficult areas such as the Peace River.
Further study was made on the procedures and equipment used to monitor
vibrations from rock blasts on construction projects. It is planned that equipment
and manpower be available in the 1974 construction season to monitor rock blast
where required.
FOUNDATION INVESTIGATIONS AND DESIGN
The main work was the design of bridge foundations for the Department, with
investigations for the various structures designed by the Department of Public
Works of subsidiary importance.
During the year, sites were investigated for over 46 bridges and 12 buildings.
Many of the bridge-sites were for the extension of the Island Highway between
Sayward and Woss Camp. Advice was also provided to other branches and departments on foundation problems which they encountered.    An essential part of
 B 86 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
successful work involves the review of results of pile-driving and foundation construction problems to compare design predictions with events during and after
construction.
Of particular interest and importance were the following:
(1) Grouting—At Nicoamen River Bridge, a flash flood in May 1972 undermined a pier footing, causing serious settlement. This was stabilized by the infrequently used technique of pressure-grouting the void beneath the footing with a
cement grout.
At the Kitsumkalum River Bridge, timber piles had to be driven into dense
sands and gravel by jetting. This process loosened the upper materials and it was
necessary to densify these to ensure adequate lateral stability of the piles. This was
effected by pressure-grouting cement as at Nicoamen River Bridge.
(2) Halfway River Bridge, Highway 29—The foundation investigation for a
major bridge to replace the existing structures revealed shaly bedrock capped by
only 2 to 8 feet of gravel at the river channel pier location. High lateral forces
from ice had to be allowed for and a design using piles predrilled into bedrock,
or a spread footing below the bedrock surface, were required.
(3) Halston Overpass, Kamloops—The materials at this site consist of 30
feet of loose sands underlain by a great depth of soft silt. The structure can be
most economically founded on spread footings in the sand, which must first be
densified by a deep vibration process.
Investigations for other structures included the Abbotsford Trout Hatchery,
Haney Correctional Centre Chapel, New Westminster Courthouse, and various
maintenance establishments for the Department of Highways.
An investigation into the use of hogfuel as a lightweight construction material
was carried out in the laboratory and in the field. It has been used under a highway section on the Lower Mainland to reduce the load on the subsoil and it is
proposed at two other fill locations near Cloverdale.
STABILITY INVESTIGATION
Numerous slides occurred during the year, chiefly during spring break-up.
They ranged from minor slumps of cut slopes and fills to outright failures of the
highway. About 12 major slides involving soil and rock were investigated, some
of which were old slides which move slightly each year and which require continual
maintenance.
Of the new slides, the most spectacular was at Attachie, west of Fort St. John,
where about 20 million cubic yards of materials were involved, blocking the Peace
River for about 12 hours. Though the highway was not directly involved, the
possibility and effect of further sliding required evaluation because of the proximity
of a settlement and a proposed new bridge. Ground movement still causes difficulty
in the Peace River area, especially at Peace River Hill, near Taylor and near the
Kiskatinaw River Bridge, where some relocation and regrading of the existing road
has proved necessary. Stabilization work consisted mainly of regrading slopes, or
draining the soil with drilled-in horizontal drains.
A new horizontal drill has been purchased for the Branch to replace the present
obsolete drill and increase the speed of horizontal drain installation.
Late in December the Branch was called upon to provide advice in connection
with the disastrous mudslide which caused considerable damage to houses at the
Rumble Beach residential area of the town of Port Alice. A consultant was retained
to make a general study of the hydrology and its possible effects on stability of the
slopes behind the townsite.
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
B 87
Rock slopes requiring attention were those at Hell's Gate Bluffs and Odium
between Haig and Agassiz where movement is being monitored by surveying and
installed instrumentation. At Porteau Bluffs, the Departmental scaling crew installed rock bolts to anchor blocks which might slide onto the highway. The crew
also removed loose rock at other rock slopes around the Province. The contract
for removal of sliding talus at Hell's Gate Bluffs was completed in April 1973. Contract documents for the removal of detached blocks of rock and the overhang were
prepared. A detailed rock slope stability investigation, including seismic and rock
mapping for the design of structures to widen the Upper Levels Highway, was
undertaken.
This year there has been a considerable increase in the number of requests to
make geotechnical evaluations of potential problems or hazards which may be anticipated at proposed subdivision sites. Reports were prepared for 12 subdivisions,
ranging from a surface evaluation of soil types, stability for slopes and foundations,
and of drainage conditions to a fairly detailed geological analysis combined with
field investigations. An extensive geotechnical area study was made of a 20-square-
mile area surrounding the town of Quesnel.
PAVEMENT EVALUATION AND DESIGN
As paved road surfaces age, the length and degree of weakening should be
known for effective repair and rebuilding. The increase in allowable truck weight
has imposed greater demands on existing roads. With the proposed transportation
of several super-large loads, such as turbines, kilns, and transformers, detailed
assessment of certain sections of roadway strength is being done in the Kamloops
Region. The combination of increasing costs of road rebuilding and decreasing
granular supplies have increased the attractiveness of alternate pavement construction methods. Last summer a short 3.5-mile test section of Highway 97 between
Progress and Arras was built using lime stabilization of the clay soil, covered with
only 9 inches of hotmix asphaltic directly on top. This reduced the quantity of
good-quality gravel needed by about 50 per cent. For a similar reason asphalt-
stabilized sand was proposed for Canim Lake Road where only large amounts of
sand were available. Technical assistance was given to the Forestry Section in
the design of an airport refueling area at Kamloops for fire-fighting operations.
One of the projects on which close co-operation with the Paving Branch took place
was from Slim to Driscoll Creek on Highway 16, where the present road was
beginning to age and a detailed investigation was necessary. Another area of
developing concern is quality assurance of roads in subdivisions under the control
of Regional Highway Managers.
The recent transfer of the majority of our normal pavement evaluation from
Victoria to our four regional centres has required extensive training of new staff.
Our regional staff now handles the majority of the work for the following Highways
branches:
(a) Design and Surveys Branch receive pavement thickness designs for
curbs and gutter (urban) projects, for new highway construction,
and for widening for truck lanes.
(b) Construction Branch uses the Benkelman Beam for ensuring adequate strength during grade construction.
(c) Paving Branch receives detailed strength evaluation of existing
weakened paved roads which required asphaltic overlays for
strengthening.
 B 88 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1973/74
(d) District Highways Managers receive advice on when to apply legal
road restrictions and the most economical type of repairs to local
roads under their jurisdiction.    The proposal for fast bus loading
areas on the Lougheed Highway is one example.
A few of the more extensive or more difficult projects are still designed in the
Victoria office, which has the use of several computer programmes on the IBM 370
unit, and access to historical construction records.
APPLIED RESEARCH
The field technical control of application of the wearing surface on the ortho-
tropic deck of the Fraser River Bridge at Mission was the final act in a comprehensive laboratory checking programme. Work on trial test sections was started
in connection with the proposed resurfacing of the Lions Gate Bridge.
The Branch continued to provide technical advice for the reduction of hazards
from chemicals and fumes, such as carbon monoxide monitoring in vehicles, use of
potentially hazardous chemicals in Maintenance garages, centreline paint spraying,
materials testing laboratories, and fibreglass fabrication. This is a form of preventive maintenance for human beings.
Electronic equipment was designed and fabricated for field evaluation of
optimum time for application of de-icing chemicals to pavements and is being used
at McBride and Blue River.
In conjunction with the Highway Specification Review Board and industry,
several material quality specifications were improved to fit present-day needs.
With increasing material shortages and costs, the area of chemical soil stabilization is being assessed in both our laboratory and in field test sections.
The Summer Employment Programme allowed us to start a drainage culvert
survey so that the advantages and disadvantages of each type of culvert could be
determined. Incidentally this aided the District Highway Managers by detecting some incipient culvert failures. The end result will improve our material
specifications.
The bridge surface assessment programme for redecking is continuing and is
providing a list of types of repairs and which structures need attention.
Applied research and development have been performed on an "as time permits" basis so that our staff can give immediate advice and technical direction on
geotechnical problems when required.
COURSES AND CONFERENCES
Ground Permeability Conference at Portland, RTAC meeting at Halifax,
Urban Terrain Problems in Montreal, Geotechnical Engineering Conference in
Toronto, a seminar on pile-driving in Oregon, a Pit Slope Stability Study Session in
Calgary, and the Ninth Canadian Rock Mechanics Symposium in Montreal were
attended by members of the Branch to expand our expertise.
A paper on grouting was presented by another member of our staff at the
WACHO Conference in Edmonton.
STAFF
Staff turnover and losses continue to be a problem. During the year the Supervising Geotechnical Design Engineer, a very well-qualified employee, resigned and
has not been replaced. The Regional Geotechnical and Materials Engineer at
Prince George resigned, as did a promising young geological engineer assigned to
act in his place.   This position remains unfilled.   The Regional Geotechnical and
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING
ENGINEER
B 89
Materials Engineer at Kamloops successfully competed for another position at
Nelson and the position remained open for six months until filled by competition
from outside the Province.    The position of Geotechnical Design Engineer who
resigned was filled by internal competition and other vacancy filled by external
competition.   Our Programe Analyst was lost by competition to another department
of the Government and an exceptionally well-qualified geophysical assistant resigned
to take up employment in industry.   The turnover of trained junior technical staff,
particularly in Regions 1 and 4, has been unacceptably high, representing a serious
loss of training and specialized experience to the Department.    While in-service
competitions have resulted in loss of many valuable technicians to other branches
and departments, they have not resulted in recruitment of any experienced tech
nicians into the Branch from elsewhere in the Highways Department or other
Government departments, which suggests our positions are relatively unattractive.
Revisions to our establishment positions seem indicated.

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
Maintenance—Extensive landscaping was carried out on the Patricia Bay Highway, approximately 180 ornamental trees and 2,500 shrubs were planted. Ornamental rock masonry was placed at all overpasses and interchanges.
The ferry strike created long delays and line-ups that extended down the highway for 3 miles. District personnel received favourable comments for their assistance in setting up sanitary facilities, drinking-water, and refuse collection.
Heavy rainfalls in early February again caused flooding in the Langford area.
Several homes were inundated for several days.
A roadside rest area with tables and toilets was established at the junction of
Highway 1 and Cowichan Bay Road. A rest area with portable toilets was set up
south of Swartz Bay to accommodate busy week-end ferry traffic.
Construction—Four miles of the Trans-Canada Highway 1 was widened to
three lanes, Tunnel Hill north, and 5 miles four-laned, Mill Bay north. Reconstruction and paving were carried out on 5 miles of West Coast Road and Port Renfrew.
Sooke Road was widened for 1.05 miles and storm drains installed to accommodate
four lanes, 5 miles were reconstructed and widened preparatory to paving. Arterial
171R, Mount Newton Cross Road was reconstructed for 0.56 mile and the intersection of Arterial 172b, Craigflower at Tillicum, reconstructed. Reconstruction
was carried out on 0.8 mile at the intersection of Shawnigan Lake to Cobble Hill.
One mile of Willis Point Road was reconstructed and District forces reconstructed
11.65 miles of miscellaneous roads.
Bridges
District crews are rebuilding the Millstream Bridge, two 30-foot concrete deck
beam spans and one 50-foot span. Sombrio Bridge was rebuilt and routine maintenance carried out on other district bridges.
Buildings
An auto-body paint building was constructed at the Langford Depot and a 40
by 80-foot concrete slab poured for steel storage. An oil house and pump island
were erected at the Cobble Hill depot and this yard and the Sooke yard fenced with
chain link. An office and tool shed were added to the garage on Galiano Island.
 B  112 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
Nanaimo Roads District
Roads
Maintenance.—An extensive surfacing programme was carried out on the
residential streets in the Greater Nanaimo area.
A programme of paving and recapping was carried out on main feeder routes
in the Duncan and Cassidy areas with special reference to improvements to farm
market routes.
In the Port Alberni area a number of roads were widened and an extensive
brushing programme carried out.
Subdivisions in the Parksville-Qualicum area continued at an increased pace,
resulting in many new areas being built up and a call for increased services; permit
volumes were up accordingly. Many culverts and drainage courses were upgraded
to take care of this residential growth, clearing of land, and increased run-off conditions.
Construction—Four-lane widening was completed on Trans-Canada Highway
south of Duncan for a distance of 2 miles and paved.
Four-lane widening was completed on Trans-Canada Highway south of Ladysmith for a distance of 1.5 miles, but not paved. However, it is ready for next
fiscal year's paving programme.
Four-lane widening was completed on Island Highway, Lantzville area, for a
distance of 2 miles and paved.
Snow removal—Extreme snowfall conditions were experienced on the Alberni-
Tofino Highway with a total snowfall of 525 inches. This was followed by heavy
run-off conditions causing washouts and minor slides. Snow conditions in the
remainder of the district were normal. However, thaw and freezing conditions
were above normal, requiring a heavy use of salt to keep the main highways ice free.
Bridges
The Chemainus River Bridge Howe truss was rebuilt, also the Meade Creek
Bridge.   Deck systems on a number of minor bridges renewed.
Buildings
A new stockroom was constructed in the Nanaimo yard to store perishable
materials.
Improvements were carried out to the Gabriola Island equipment sheds, foreman's office, and assembly room.
A new storage shed for protection of lumber and other large items was constructed at the Parksville yard.
The mechanical foreman's office was renewed at the Duncan yard.
Negotiations were completed for a new yard-site in the Cassidy area.
Ferries
Normal ferry service was maintained on Gabriola Island and Thetis Island
ferry-runs. A fill was placed at Gabriola ferry-landing, Gabriola Island side, to
allow room to construct a waiting-room at a future date.
No-post guard-rail was placed around ferry terminal property at Nanaimo.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  113
Courtenay District
Roads
Maintenance—An S.C.O. oil dust layer was used to control dust over approximately 40 miles of gravel road. Spot oiling was carried out in the Courtenay, Campbell River, Quadra, Cortes, Denman, and Hornby Island areas. The Summer
Employment Programme helped considerably in brush control and the addition of
a Roanoke brush-cutter has helped to control vegetation in lieu of chemicals used
previously. Drainage improvements were made on numerous roads with new culverts being installed and ditches constructed or regraded. Excessive rains throughout December resulted in many flooding problems. The Island Highway 19 near
Oyster Bay, north of Courtenay, required riprap to protect the highway from erosion
due to high seas during winter storms.
Construction—In preparation for roadmix, in most cases, a total of 11 miles
was reconstructed or improved, some areas being Cortes Island, Beaver Cove,
Hornby Island, and Quadra Island.
Bituminous surfacing—District forces completed 22.5 miles of roadmix pavement, 3.85 miles on Denman was laid with a Layton paver using stockpiled plant-
mix. Central Road on Hornby Island was extended 1.9 miles. Heriot Bay Road
on Quadra received 3 miles of pavement over various sections.
Snow removal—Except for several heavy snowstorms, the snowfall was from
light to average throughout the district. Some hired equipment, namely skidders
such as the timberjack, was used to open outlying areas. The ski resort area of Forbidden Plateau required constant attention due to heavy snowfall at the higher
elevations.
Bridges
All bridges were inspected and repairs carried out on numerous decks and
railings. A new deck and ties were completed on Old Oyster River Bridge, and
Malcolm Bridge and Farnham Bridge each had a new deck. The new Singing
Sands Bridge was constructed. Port Alice 2 was replaced after being washed out
December 15 week-end by a mud slide at Port Alice Townsite. Bridge elimination at Sointula was carried out, with culvert installations. The additional section
of Gold River Bridge was completed by contract, but the deck was completed by
District forces. The new Tsable River Bridge is still under construction by contract.
District forces placed Tsable River approach material and riprap protection with
the help of hired equipment.
Buildings
A new equipment shed was constructed on Cortes Island at the new yard-site.
Campbell River had new fuel tanks placed underground and a new oil house constructed. Foreman's offices were added to the Quadra, Denman, and Hornby equipment sheds. The Courtenay main office extension was completed by contract,
along with a new heating system.
Ferries
All ferries in the district maintained normal service, except for when sailings
were cancelled due to winter storms with high winds. The new vessel MV Nimpkish provides improved service for the Alert Bay, Sointula, and Port McNeill areas.
Replacement vessels, when needed to maintain service, were brought in the relieve
ferries undergoing refit and repairs.
 B  114 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
North Vancouver District
Roads
Maintenance—A heavy bridge repair and construction programme with an
exceptionally long winter and the district's total involvement in the Maintenance
Management Programme made it a very busy year.
A 12-mile ditching programme and shoulder widening programme were undertaken on Highway 101 and Port Mellon Highways on the Sunshine Coast. One
mile of Pemberton Portage Road was constructed and an additional 3 miles
gravelled in preparation for pavement. Brohm Lake Corner was eliminated north
of Squamish on Highway 99. Phibbs Bus Loop and a number of bus stops were
constructed at the north end of Second Narrows Bridge and along Dollarton Highway for the Transit Authority.
The snowfall for the North Vancouver-Squamish-Pemberton area was average;
however, it was extended from November 1 to mid-April.
Two hundred miles of no-post guard-rail index system was analysed and produced computer sheets for Highway 99 and Sunshine Coast Highway 101. The
men, foremen, and engineering staff have been running totally in the Maintenance
Management Programme, using individual time sheets to tabulate hours of work,
amount of work produced, etc., with Engineering providing a unit quantity at the
end of each month for foremen's evaluation. Each foreman has provided yearly
plans for work to be achieved in their areas, with monthly graph plans.
Bridges
Soo River, Rutherford, Mons, and Callaghan Creek Bridges were opened on
Garibaldi Highway 99, with Van West Bridge being replaced with multiplate culvert and Lyall Creek Bridge being reconstructed. Cheekye Bridge is presently
under contract for construction. Bailey bridging was installed at Birkenhead
Bridge and Port Mellon 5 after these bridges collapsed. Additional Baileys were
installed on Port Mellon 2, Cheekye, and Brandywine. Major redecking of the
bridges between Horseshoe Bay and Britannia was started and is anticipated to
last three years. Pilchuk Bridge, Upper Squamish Road, collapsed and was shored
up on a temporary basis until the time the new structure can be built.
Buildings
Public Works have contracted out the construction of a new shop in the Alta
Lake yard, Whistler Mountain area.
New Westminster District
Roads
Maintenance—Highways throughout the district were maintained to a high
standard. Special funds provided this year to hire extra employees to supplement
the regular maintenance crews enabled the district to do extensive brushing and
other maintenance work that is often difficult to cover with the normal crews. The
shoulder surface treating programme continued from the previous year. Completed
this year were Fraser Highway 1a through Langley, and Highway 99 through
Richmond.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  115
With the introduction of an improved bus system in the Coquitlam-Burnaby
area, the district undertook the construction of some 40 bus pull-out bays at various
locations on Lougheed Highway 7 and loco Road.
The tree-planting programme continued with further plantings on Trans-
Canada Highway 1 and some planting around yard-sites.
Snow removal—The winter was quite mild this year and problems associated
with snow removal were minimal.
The average recorded snowfall for the district was approximately 27 inches
total.
Construction—Except for final lift of pavement, work was completed on the
widening of Highway 17 to four lanes. In conjunction with the Knight Street
Bridge project, the district undertook, by day labour, the construction of a 1-mile
extension of Knight Street between Cambie Road and Westminster Highway. Other
major projects included the reconstruction of Highway 13 County Line Road between Fraser Highway 1a and Trans-Canada Highway 1 in Langley, and the replacement of Government Bridge and School Bridge on loco Road with culverts
and fill.
Work continued on the overpass approach fills on the Stormont Interchange
to Lougheed Highway connection in Burnaby.
Some smaller projects included the construction of a road to Turtle Head
in the Belcarra area, shoulder widening on Sunnyside Road, addition of a lane on
the Johnston Interchange offramp from Trans-Canada Highway 1, and a right-
turn lane on Pacific Highway 15 at the weigh scale north of the International
Boundary.
Started, but not completed this year, for the University Endowment Lands at
UBC, the district undertook the extension of Western Parkway and installed curb
and gutter.
Drainage projects included the installation of 1 mile of storm sewer on Pacific
Highway 15, between 24th and 32nd Avenues, to provide safer shoulders and resolve major erosion problem.
On Southwest Marine Drive, at UBC, 900 feet of storm sewer were installed
to enclose a ditch east of University Boulevard.
Traffic signals continue to be much in demand, installations were completed
on Fraser Highway 1a at 208th Street in Langley, on Sea Island Way at Sexsmith
Road in Richmond, on Highway 10 at Scott Road in Surrey, on Scott Road at 80th
Avenue in Surrey, on King George VI Highway 99a at 64th Avenue in Surrey, on
Lougheed Highway 7 at 207th Street and at 216th Street in Maple Ridge, and on
Knight Street at Cambie Road in Richmond. Also, a pedestrian traffic signal was
installed on Lougheed Highway 7 at Hastings Street in Port Coquitlam.
Bridges
Little major work was undertaken on structures in the district this year. Apart
from the resurfacing of the concrete deck on Johnston Underpass on Trans-Canada
Highway 1 and joint repairs to the Burlington Northern Overpass on Highway 99
and to the Oak Street Bridge, most of the work consisted of routine maintenance.
Ferries
Operation of both the Albion ferry and the Barnston Island ferry went without
incident this year. Traffic volumes continued to remain high at the Albion-Fort
Langley ferry. Rebuilding of the landings to accommodate a larger vessel is planned
for next year.
 B  116 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
Chilliwack District
Roads
Maintenance—Highways throughout the district were generally maintained to
a good standard. Mowers operated during the growing season and a considerable
amount of brushing was carried out. A litter clean-up patrol operated daily during
the summer months and as required for the remainder of the year. Road signs were
well maintained. Heavy rainfall during winter resulted in several slides. Hemlock
Valley Road was closed for a few days after a bridge was completely demolished by
a slide. A rock slide at Odium Bluff closed Lougheed Highway for several days,
but the highway was reopened as soon as it was possible. Approximately 15 miles
of gravelled road were treated was oil to control dust.
Construction—A number of gravel roads were reconstructed during the year,
amounting to approximately 11.7 miles. Morris Valley Road was reconstructed
and widened for 3 miles, Hawkins-Pickle Road for 1.4 miles, St. Elmo Road for
1.9 miles, Columbia Valley Road for 1.7 miles, and shorter sections of several
other roads.
Bituminous surfacing—District crews recapped 0.8 mile of road and paved
an additional 1.1 miles. Asphalt curbing was removed from the edge of the travelled
lanes on Trans-Canada Highway 1 between "C" Street and Countyline Road. The
shoulders were then paved and asphalt curbing replaced at the outer edge where
required for a total distance of 5 miles.
Snow removal—Snowfall was near average for the year. Roads were ploughed
and sanded when required, and kept in good condition. The district took over the
maintenance of the road to the Hemlock Valley Ski area in November, a much
much heavier snow area than the rest of the district.
Bridges
The district bridge crew reconstructed Youngston Bridge from the ground up
and reduced the length of this pile-trestle bridge over the Hatzic Slough to 119 feet.
Dent Bridge 2, a 69.5-foot pile-trestle bridge, was reconstructed from the
piles up.
The new Mission Bridge was opened to traffic in July 1973 and all decking
required for vehicular traffic on the Mission CPR Bridge was removed.
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
Maintenance—Due to a severe spring break-up, the district had to increase
maintenance on major side roads, mainly on school bus routes. The slashing programme last summer through the Summer Employment Programme helped greatly
to dry up the roads, but much work remains to be done on ditching and installation
of culverts to improve surface drainage. The snowfall last winter was heavy—
more miles were ploughed and more sand and chemicals used than ever before.
Since the amalgamation of the City of Kamloops, the district has the responsibility
for the maintenance of its roads; however, it has no jurisdiction over the installation
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  117
of utilities and driveways, therefore increased maintenance is required to keep the
roads of residential subdivisions in fairly good condition. Due to an extremely
dry summer, there was the greatest demand for dust control. Crews applied over
100,000 gallons of Bunker B oil. Much of the extra work was done during the
warm weather run-off in January and February, due to local flooding.
Construction—Kamloops District bridge crew worked on the completion of
the Kamloops Bypass by installing no-post guard-rail, sign bridges, breakaway signs,
and lamp standards. Reconstruction by district forces and hired equipment added
up to 15.84 miles. Other minor improvements by district forces added up to a
total of 42.5 miles in length.
Bridges
All bridges were inspected by the bridge foreman during the year, and necessary maintenance work done.   Deadman Bridge 2 was reconstructed.
Ferries
Both ferries had new motors installed and approach ramps repaired. Additional work done to the Little Fort ferry was new bumper timbers. McLure ferry
had new apron cheaves installed.
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance—Normal maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads in the district. An extensive brushing and slashing programme was undertaken on main highway rights-of-way. The dust abatement programme was extended to include the Sicamous area, using a total of 55,000 gallons of oil and 40
tons of calcium chloride. The pavement patching programme was heavier than
usual due to extensive surface deterioration on sections of Highways 97 and 1.
Spring run-off problems were minimal, confined mostly to Ross Creek in the Angle-
mont area.
Construction—Reconstruction was carried out on 4.2 miles of side roads as
follows: White Lake Road, 1.9 miles; Parri Road, 0.2 mile; Cedar Hill Road, 0.6
mile; Kamloops-Shuswap Road, 0.2 mile; Squilax Road, 0.3 mile; Brooke Road,
0.4 mile.
Snow removal—Snowfall was below average for the year. Shift systems were
in effect and all roads were kept open and in good condition.
Bridges
General maintenance was carried out on all bridges. A new structure (Jules
Bridge, 300 feet) was erected at the south end of Adams Lake. Five bridges were
reconstructed, namely, Boulder, Carson, Gibbons, Haines, and Hummingbird.
McBride District
Roads
Maintenance—Normal spring and summer maintenance programmes were
carried out. The Summer Employment and Summer Assistant Programmes were
used to improve the conditions of rights-of-way and yards.
Heavy winter precipitation taxed district crews, but they maintained the roads
in good condition with the help of additional equipment supplied to the district for
the winter and by using above-average quantities of sand and salt.
 B  118 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
Construction—Two sections of Highway 16 west of Tete Jaune Junction were
under construction by contract. One section was completed and opened to traffic
by early fall.
District crews carried out minor construction on side roads.
Paving—A contract was let for resurfacing the section of Highway 5 between
Avola and Messiter Summit. District crews carried out extensive patching on
Highway 16 east of Tete Jaune Junction.
Bridges
The new Moose Lake Overhead was opened to traffic and contracts were
awarded for portions of the Holmes River, Dore River, and Dore Overhead structures.
With the construction of the Small River multiplate and fill, district crews
removed the Bailey span on the detour. District crews inspected all structures in
the district and completed minor repairs on some.
Buildings
A contract was awarded for the construction of a maintenance establishment
at Blue River.
At McBride the Summer Employment crew gave the shop a face-lift.
Vernon District
Roads
Maintenance—An average spring break-up was experienced throughout the
district with the exception of the Monashee area, allowing the district crews to
concentrate on a good standard of maintenance on all highways and roads. A
very dry year caused soils to break down on many gravel roads. Several roads
subject to heavy industrial hauling deteriorated to a rather sad state, resulting in
considerable public complaint.   The demand for dust palliatives was very high.
The Student Summer Employment Programme was a tremendous success to
the district and appearance of the highway system. The activities created were rewarding to the Department and the students.
Subdivision and home construction in the North Okanagan continued active
in spite of the agricultural land freeze. The Vernon office processed 313 tentative
subdivision applications, 255 final subdivision applications, 36 land use contracts,
and 838 permits were issued for works on Crown land, double the number of permits issued the previous year.
The roadside development plant at Vernon, operated by the district, produced
10,130 feet of no-post guard-rail, 361 terminal sections, and 290 feet of the newly
designed 27-inch standard guard-rail. Standard forms for the new guard-rail were
manufactured here in Vernon, including transition sections which were shipped
to various depots in the Province for the manufacture of guard-rail. One hundred
and fifty-one special terrazzo-finished concrete picnic tables and 29 toilets were
produced for shipment to various roadside rest stops. The fibreglass shop also
produced 15 special planters for the British Columbia Ferries Division for beauti-
fication at the Swartz Bay ferry terminal. Our fibreglass shop was equipped with
the latest Glass Craft fibreglass spraying system, complete with a portable gelcoat
system, greatly improving production in the plant.
Construction—A further 2 miles of Deep Creek Road and three-quarters of
a mile of Canyon Road in the Enderby area were reconstructed and gravelled.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  119
Short sections of Silver Star and Hickman Roads in the Vernon area were improved
and gravelled. Reditching and gravelling of sections of Lumby-Mabel Lake Road
were completed and 5 miles of Enderby-Mabel Lake Road were regravelled.
Snow removal—Total precipitation for the snow accumulation period November through March was well above normal. Milder weather in the lower elevations
resulted in considerable rain and a heavy accumulation of snow in the higher ranges.
Snow removal on Silver Star Mountain and in Monashee Pass was very demanding.
The freeze-thaw conditions increased the demand for sand and salt. Potholes and
general pavement deterioration were very evident. A January thaw caused some
minor flooding of homes in the Vernon subregions.
Paving—District crews carried out roadmix paving on two miles of Deep Creek
Road and three-quarters of a mile of Canyon Road. In the Oyama area, one-third
of a mile of Willett Road was completed; 1.7 miles of the Pottery Road area was
repaved with hotmix. Several sections were patched along the Vernon-Slocan
Highway 6 east of Lumby, using plantmix asphalt. In the district, 640 tons of
hotmix asphalt were used for patching.
Bridges
All district bridges were inspected and maintained as required. Fortune Creek
Bridge 1 on Highway 97a near Armstrong was reconstructed by district forces.
The project consisted of removal of the existing 50-foot steel-stringer span and replacing it with a new 53-foot prestressed-concrete box-stringer span. All works
were completed on schedule by early December 1973. Necessary materials were
purchased for reconstruction of Endall Bridge on Headgate Road in the Lumby
area. Materials to completely redeck Shuswap Falls Bridge on Lumby-Mabel
Lake Road were provided.
Buildings
Vernon—Landscaping and a museum for the new maintenance establishment
were initiated and will be completed in 1974.
Enderby—New doors were provided for the truck bays in the Enderby garage.
Lumby—All buildings were repainted.
Cherryville—The garage was repainted and considerable repairs to the water
system were done, including a new hot-water tank. Chain-link fence was also purchased for the yard.
Kelowna District
Roads
Maintenance—All roads were maintained in generally good condition throughout the year. With enlargement of the City of Kelowna boundaries and the responsibility of the Department of Highways to maintain all roads formerly maintained
by the district, but now within the new city for a three-year period, the district received many requests for paving and upgrading the maintenance programme.
The paving programme which was started the previous year was completed
with 6.4 miles being paved. An extensive dust control programme was initiated in
the district and approximately 22 miles were treated. A large programme of
brushing and general clean-up was initiated under the Summer Employment Programme.
Spring flooding was minor.
Construction—A total of 6.4 miles of subdivision roads were reconstructed
for paving; 5 miles of Big White Road were reconstructed; 8 miles of the Westside
Road were gravelled.
 B  120 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
Snow removal—The snowfall was minimal at the lower elevations, but unusually heavy at the higher levels. Some rather bad icing conditions were experienced
several times throughout the winter, which resulted in above-average use of salt and
sand.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained in satisfactory condition. Bear Creek Bridge was
reconstructed.
Penticton District
Roads
Maintenance—Normal maintenance was carried out in the latter part of the
year. The emphasis was on shoulder repair and culvert replacement during the
early part of the year, with particular concentration on repairs necessitated by the
previous year's flooding. Raising and protecting lakeside and other flood prone
areas with riprap and a general clean-up of flood-damaged areas was also undertaken.
Dust layer was applied to 44 miles of orchard and gravel roads in the district
and coldmix paving improvements were carried out over 10.9 miles of local roads.
Snowfall was above normal and freeze-thaw conditions in the mountain areas tended
to damage pavements extensively. Seven days a week was the normal winter shift,
with average icing conditions and above-average avalanche conditions on the Hope-
Princeton Highway.
Construction—Improvements to Hope-Princeton Highway 3 were carried out
during the summer months, including 1.7 miles of three-laning and 7.4 miles of
four-laning.    During the same period, 14 miles of local roads were upgraded.
Bridges
The bridge crew were very active in finalizing repairs to flood-damaged structures and the installation of several multiplate culverts on Highway 5 between
Princeton and Merritt. A total of 80 feet of Bailey bridge was installed on pile
bents at Bridge 73 at Hedley-Twenty Mile; complete reconstruction of Bridge 62
on Highway 40; complete reconstruction of Bridges 128, 151, and 183. Other
repairs and maintenance were as required.
Floods
Construction and reconstruction of Similkameen River dykes in the Keremeos-
Cawston area was completed to the 200-year flood-level according to the design
provided by Water Resources.
Othe dykes and bridges throughout the district were protected with riprap.
Roads in the Osoyoos area were raised above flood-level.
Merritt District
Roads
Maintenance—Spring and summer maintenance progressed as usual, although
an unusually dry summer created dust control problems. This year, winter maintenance in the Fraser Canyon section of the Trans-Canada Highway was upgraded
by the establishment of 24-hour coverage on a three-shift basis. Snowslides closed
the canyon to traffic on two occasions and minor rock slides were an unusually
frequent occurrence.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  121
Unseasonably heavy rains and snow in January resulted in severe flooding
in the Merritt-Lytton area. Mudslides resulted in many areas and the required
clean-up was extensive, particularly on Merritt-Spences Bridge Highway 8.
A programme of rock scaling has been initiated throughout the district, with
major emphasis given to the Fraser Canyon.
Toward the end of the year a heavy programme of frost-boil excavation and
patching proved necessary on Highways 5 and 8 and considerable pavement patching was required through the Fraser Canyon.
Close to Alexandra Bridge a new picnic-site was constructed and this is to be
extended in the coming year.
Construction—District day labour forces completed reconstruction of a 4-
mile section of Mamette Lake Road and 3 miles of Coldwater Road. Fifteen miles
of Coalmont Road, between Princeton and Tulameen, was upgraded and pulvimixed. One mile at the Merritt end of Highway 8 was reconstructed ready for
paving. A start was made on drainage improvements to Highway 5 north of Merritt prior to paving.
Bridges
Eight timber bridges were reconstructed and numerous minor repairs were
effected.
Bulk salt-storage sheds were constructed at Boston Bar and Merritt.
Ferries
North Bend aerial and Lytton reaction ferries both maintained normal service.
Lillooet District
Roads
Maintenance—Roads in the Lillooet area were brushed out, with considerable
ditching being done on Lillooet-Bralorne Road, also catch roads were cleared out
as a slide preventive measure on the above roads. Brushing and regrading Lillooet-
Cache Creek Road was carried out, all the above work being done by Lillooet maintenance crew.
Gun Lake roads were brushed out and rebuilt over a distance of some 3 miles,
with ditching and regravelling on Seton Portage roads, also some widening on Mission Mountain Road was carried out, all the foregoing work by the Goldbridge
crews.
Ashcroft crews were kept busy on Loon Lake and Upper Hat Creek Road, as
well as general maintenance on the Ashcroft area roads. Minor mud and rock
slides occurred between Spences Bridge and Cache Creek due to early rains; some
traffic delay being necessary of up to eight hours.
Apart from over-all general maintenance on the Clinton area roads, the Clinton crew rebuilt and ditched several miles of Kelly Lake-Jesmond Road leading
to the Big Bar ferry on the Fraser River, also North Bonaparte Road was brushed
out and regraded for several miles.
Construction—Three miles of heavy construction work were carried out on
Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway 6 miles east of Lillooet. One mile of new road
was constructed at Gun Lake, vicinity of Goldbridge. One mile of subdivision
road was built on a subdivision at Cache Creek. One mile of road was relocated
and rebuilt on Pavilion-Clinton Road at the Kelly Lake Junction, while Green Lake
Road had 3 miles of fairly heavy construction completed. One mile of plantmix
paving was laid at Cache Creek, while 8 miles of pulvimix paving were completed
along Pavilion Lake on Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway.   One mile of sealcoat was
 B  122 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
also put down on Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway, this sealcoat used to stabilize
some fairly heavy grades which were becoming washboard.
Snow removal—Lillooet had a rather abnormal winter. Heavy snowfall was
encountered in the Bridge River country, with relatively light fall elsewhere. Three
days of rain around the middle of January caused heavy icing in the district, with
some slides encountered both in the Bridge River-Bralome area and along Trans-
Canada Highway 1. Traffic delays were relatively minor, however, although crews
put in long hours, and much chemical was needed on the paved stretches of the
highway.
Ferries
Big Bar reaction ferry gave good service throughout the year, a cage is used
for winter crossing of the Fraser River while the main ferry is out of use due to the
winter.
Williams Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—The maintenance programme was a busy one as usual, but
rather a normal year as the weather was reasonably moderate throughout.
Minor maintenance items included an expanded dust laying programme as
the demand for same increases every year. Similarly with the litter pick-up and
patrol on main roads. Ten miles of fencing were completed on Cariboo Highway.
The side road slashing programme was quite extensive as additional employees were
provided by the Summer Student Programme.
Many small culverts were installed or replaced in the Bridge Lake, 100 Mile,
Williams Lake, Bella Coola, and Alexis Creek foreman areas.
Processing of subdivisions and permit issuing continued to increase and required more man-hours to handle, in both the Williams Lake and 100 Mile offices.
Frost damage on Cariboo Highway between Miles 104 and 123 was particularly severe this spring, causing many paving breaks.
Construction—Major construction projects were carried out on Canim Lake
Road, Horsefly Road, Likely Road, IJorse Lake Road, Chilcotin-Bella Coola
Road, and the 93 Mile-Little Fort Road.
Minor projects included 2 miles of relocation on Dog Creek Road, with reconstruction and gravelling on Morrison Meadow, Nimpo Lake South, and Walker
Park Roads. Construction and gravelling were completed on two Department of
Lands subdivisions.
Considerable gravelling was completed on Salloomt Road, Cooper Creek Road,
Redstone-Chezacut Road, Alexis Creek-Nazko Road, and Taseko Road.
The pulvimixing surface was extended on Horse Lake Road, but was rained
out on 93 Mile-Little Fort Road.
Snow removal—The work load was slightly higher than normal in most areas
except Bella Coola, where some heavy snowfalls were recorded in January, such
as 6 feet from the 12th to 16th, inclusive.
Bridges
New bridges were constructed this year. These were Dean 2, Willowford,
Skaday, Bridge Creek 1, Lac la Hache, Holtry, Nimpo, and Wilson. Four other
structures, Sword 2, Machete Lake, Black Creek, and Dog Creek were replaced by
culvert and fill. We were greatly assisted by the student programme with cleaning
and painting, so that 46 bridges have an improved look this year.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
Buildings
B  123
Many Public Works buildings and shops were improved with painting and
minor repairs. The bridge crew and Bella Coola crew together set up a modular
home at Bella Coola to serve as the Road Foreman's residence.
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 run-off was light due to a low snowfall over the winter
of 1972/73. Flood damage was negligible adjacent to district streams and rivers.
The programme of replacing wooden signposts with either Telspar or davit-type
steel posts was continued, especially in the heavy snow areas. In addition, the
delineation of curves on main highways continued. Extensive right-of-way slashing
and clean-up were carried out on most main district highways, using summer student labour. This force also was engaged in clean-up and improvement of roadside rest areas. Dust control was carried out on 60 miles of secondary roads using
asphalt or bunker oil, and retreatment of 4 miles of Emerald Mine Road and 4
miles of Trail-Pend-d'Oreille Road with liquid calcium chloride. Two screening
plants operated throughout the summer and fall, preparing winter sand and material
for roadmixing and sand-sealing. Mixing of salt and sand for winter use took
place during the screening operation.
Construction—A new road to serve West Creston and eliminate the ferry was
constructed to gravel grade. This involved 2.5 miles of new road on new route
and 2.3 miles of reconstructed existing route. On Highway 3a (Kinnaird—Nelson)
1.5 miles were widened with grade revision prior to paving in late summer. Work
was commenced to improve the Kokanee Lodge section of Nelson-Balfour Highway. Shoulder gravelling of 8.2 miles of Highway 3a (Kootenay Bay-Creston)
and 1.15 miles of Highway 3 (Creston-Goatfell) was carried out in early spring.
Also, 1.6 miles of secondary road were reconstructed and gravelled and 2 miles
improved; 4.6 miles of district roads were paved with roadmix, and 13.7 miles
were sealcoated.
Snow removal—Snowfall was average throughout most of the district but heavy
on the higher levels. Temperatures were mild and frequent slides occurred on the
Salmo-Creston Highway. Very heavy quantities of sand were used. Crews operated on a seven-day double-shift basis from October to April.
Bridges
A 191-foot-long pile-trestle structure was constructed over the back channel
of the Kootenay River at West Creston. An extensive programme of washing and
cleaning was carried out on district bridges, followed by painting of rails, posts, and
wheelguards.
The single-single Bailey at Slocan Park West was changed to double-single.
The asphalt plank and plywood deck on Erie overhead was removed and replaced
with hotmix asphalt.
A multiplate culvert was assembled to replace Kline Bridge in Cottonwood
Creek.
 B  124 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
Ferries
Kootenay Lake, Harrop-Longbeach, and Glade ferries operated throughout
the year and the West Creston ferry from April to October. During the year the
Harrop-Longbeach was changed to 24-hour daily service. The Kootenay Lake
ferries were put on 50-minute schedule during July and August to accommodate
heavy tourist traffic.
MV Anscomb was drydocked in the fall for inspection, cleaning, and painting.
Following this, extensive work of sheeting and insulating were carried out to the
roof of the car deck, the interior of passenger accommodations, and the wheelhouse.
New shear booms and some new dolphins were installed at both Kootenay Bay
and Balfour Landings.
Rossland District
Roads
In addition to the normal maintenance functions, the district pursued, with
considerable emphasis, a beautification and roadside clean-up programme by utilizing the services of some 50 students during the summer months. A new roadside
rest area was developed at Walker Creek on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway and constant attention given to the existing rest areas. The small community
of Deer Park on Lower Arrow Lake was provided with all-year-round vehicular
access for the first time since the flooding of the original road behind the Hugh
Keenleyside Dam. Record snowfalls on the higher levels, especially nearly in the
season when the snow was wet and heavy, caused many metal signposts to bend,
but most posts affected were readily adjusted once the snow disappeared. This
is a much simpler and more economical procedure than replacing broken posts and
damaged signs. District forces have yet to find a satisfactory delineator installation
for heavy snow belts since it is imperative that we completely clear the snow from
superelevated curves to prevent melt and resulting black ice; but, while doing so, the
delineator posts are destroyed. A large quantity of no-post guard-rail was fabricated for distribution to neighbouring Highway Districts and for local placements.
Several short side roads received bituminous surfacing and others were prepared
for treatment when funds become available.
Bridges
Although the only major project undertaken was the placing of heavy riprap
just below Pier 2 of Columbia River Bridge at Castlegar, our bridge.crew were
kept busy on a multitude of tasks. A crew of girls spent a portion of their time
painting bridge handrails; they proved to be very conscientious and the results were
good.
Ferries
While the residents living on the opposite side of the Columbia River to the
City of Castlegar have two alternate routes, they continue to make full use of the
ferry. There were no major disruptions, but vandalism to various components remains a source of annoyance and expense.
Buildings
Considerable attention was given to cleaning, painting, neat storage, etc., and
the district crews were recognized by receipt of the regional award for good housekeeping. The Department of Public Works was most co-operative in attending to
maintenance problems in a prompt manner. A new yard-site was located in the
Fruitvale area and arrangements made to purchase for development at a future date.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  125
Grand Forks District
Roads
Maintenance—Brushing and general clean up of all rights-of-way was carried
out by district crews and students under the Summer Employment Programme.
More emphasis was placed on the shouldering of major routes. Ditching and the
placing of culverts were performed on many side roads in the immediate area
adjacent to Grand Forks. Three 4-foot culvert extensions were installed on Highway 33, thus eliminating a hazard that has existed since the original culverts were
installed.   Winter maintenance was close to normal, with few problems.
Three new rest areas were developed, one at Anarchist Mountain on Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway 3 and two on Highway 33.
Construction—The 19.7-mile section of Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 3
between Rock Creek and Greenwood was widened and the shoulders rebuilt in
preparation for repaving; 6 miles east of Grand Forks was reshouldered; 10 miles
of North Fork Road (Franklin) and 1.3 miles of Camp McKinney Road were
rebuilt. The Phoenix Revision on Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 3 was
completed.
Bridges
On Thursday, June 14, 1973, the king truss bridge at Carmi on Highway 33
collapsed. A temporary Bailey bridge was installed and the highway reopened to
traffic on Monday, June 18, 1973. Lancashire Bridge was replaced on new alignment by a new structure approximately 100 feet downstream from the old bridge.
Major maintenance and repairs were carried out on many timber structures. The
bridge crew also built and installed concrete slabs as a boat-launching ramp on
Christina Lake for the Lands Branch of the Department of Lands, Forests, and
Water Resources.
A 60-foot steel binwall was erected on the north approach to Cascade Bridge,
thus eliminating the use of several thousands of yards of rock fill.
Buildings
Minor repairs were carried out on all buildings and the Grand Forks yard has
now been relocated to the new site.
New Denver District
Roads
Maintenance—An extensive patching programme was undertaken throughout
the district in the late spring and early summer. Due to the unusually hot, dry
summer, calcium chloride and MC-O were applied to most gravel roads to control
the dust. Ditching, gravelling, sign repairs, and culvert replacement were carried
out by all road crews on various side roads.
An irrigation system was installed at the Falls Creek rest area prior to the
area being seeded. Through the months of June, July, and August a regular two-man
crew inspected and cleaned up the six rest areas in the district.
Near record snowfalls in the district placed heavy demands on the winter shift
crews.   Bare pavement was maintained most of the winter.
Construction—Grading on Projects 2496 and 2311 was nearly completed by
late fall. Both projects should be completed and paved early in 1974. Upon
completion of Project 2311 north of Nakusp, Highway 23 will have been completely
 B  126 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1973/74
reconstructed from the Mica Dam to Nakusp. When Project 2496 on Highway 6
at Slocan is completed, the new highway will bypass part of the old highway along
Slocan Lake that has been in use since 1927.
The district reconstructed 6.5 miles of Highway 31a (Kaslo-New Denver),
which will be paved during the summer of 1974. When this is complete, there will
be one last 6-mile section to improve and pave.
Paving and surfacing—Headquarters crews sealcoated 28.5 miles of Highways
6 and 31a. The sealcoat crew also "pounder-mixed" 16 additional miles of Highway 6. The pulvimix crew recapped 8.9 miles of Highway 31 from Kaslo to
Schroeder Creek.
Bridges
Carpenter Creek Bridge at New Denver and Wilson Creek Bridge at Rosebery
were completed. The approaches and riprap protection were undertaken by district forces, who completed Wilson Creek Bridge, but Carpenter Creek Bridge is
to be completed in the spring of 1974. Whatshan River Bridge was replaced by
the district bridge crew. Routine repairs were carried out on 18 other bridges in
the district.
Buildings
A new 15,300-square-foot maintenance establishment was completed at New
Denver.
Ferries
The Forward Voith Schneider propulsion unit was overhauled in April 1973
and the engines overhauled in October 1973. Both these overhauls were completed
with virtually no interruption in service. Traffic volumes in the summer of 1973
were nearly double that of 1972.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads, including pavement patching, which was normal on most sections other than the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 3 section near Cranbrook Overhead to Fort
Steele Junction, Wardner Bridge approaches, Cranbrook Arterial and Highway 95a
near Wycliffe. Grading (though not too effective in the hot, dry summer) and
ditching were normal other than on the Moyie Hills section of Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway 3, which was above normal. Old wooden culverts on side
roads were replaced and additional culverts installed. Brush-cutting was performed
on main highways and some side roads as time permitted, mainly by students on the
Summer Employment Programme. When men and equipment were available,
some sections of side roads were widened and gravelled as necessary. Oiling or
calcium chloride was applied on side roads in front of residences to control dust.
Calcium chloride was also applied to 12 miles of St. Mary Lake Road. Installation
of new and the maintenance of old signs was a continuous job for most of the year.
Additional islands were constructed to accommodate some signs on main roads.
Delineator posts were painted and installed. Due to heavy rains, some fills were
washed out and had to be repaired. All culverts were checked and cleaned. Some
19,180 lineal feet of concrete no-post guard-rail was manufactured and the district
forces assisted the paving shouldering crew in paving approximately 50 miles of
shoulder on Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 3, Highways 93 and 95.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  127
Construction—A total of 5.27 miles was reconstructed, 1.14 miles gravelled
and paved, and 5.4 miles flushcoated. Day labour included reconstruction, paving,
fencing, storm sewers, and curb and gutter work.
Snow removal—All areas of the district experienced an average snowfall, but
winter rains and extreme cold weather resulted in more men being employed on
winter shift work to keep roads open to traffic. This also resulted in more sand and
salt being used, but delays were kept to a minimum even though driving conditions
were extremely hazardous. Winter shifts were maintained on two eight-hour shifts,
seven days a week in all areas from November 11, 1973, to March 15, 1974, and
even after that a patrol of three men remained on at night and at week-ends to check
and remove rock, snow, and perform sanding operations.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained as required by limited forces as the crew were
mainly employed in the Fernie District. All structures were washed off, driftwood
was removed during the above normal high-water condition, and some stream
channels were cleaned and straightened to prevent wash-outs during the high-water
condition. Bridge railings, damaged in vehicular accidents, were either replaced
or repaired.
Buildings
The storage shed in Cranbrook yard was repaired and a new log salt-storage
shed was constructed in the Kimberley yard.
Fernie District
Roads
Maintenance—A relatively mild winter was experienced with heavy snowfalls
occurring only in the Fernie area and light snowfall throughout the remainder of
the district. Considerable rainfall during the winter months may partially account
for the severe and widespread pavement damage throughout the district. Snowfalls,
while light, occurred almost daily necessitating constant ploughing, sanding, and
salting.
Few flooding problems were encountered during the run-off period, except in
Sparwood area where coal-exploration roads created considerable mudslide activity.
Construction—Cuts and fills were widened on a section of Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway 3 between Jaffray and Wardner.
Complete scraper reconstruction of 4.6 miles of Kikomun-Newgate Road was
completed in December.
Roadmixing of the lower half of Elk Valley Highway was completed by Headquarters pulvi crews.
Plantmix asphalt contract from Fernie to Elko was partially completed by summer's end.
Minor reconstruction occurred on many roads throughout the district. Considerable roadmix paving was done in the Jaffray-Baynes Lake area.
Bridges
Loop Bridge in Crows Nest Pass was given a concrete deck overlay, under
contract.
 B  128 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
Buildings
Extensive improvements were made to our plant at the Jaffray maintenance
establishment and improved temporary quarters were acquired at Sparwood. No
contract has been let on the new Fernie Shop, as yet.
All in all, a good year with much accomplished and few real problems.
Golden District
Roads
Maintenance—Routine maintenance was carried out on all roads. This involved ditching, grading, sign maintenance and replacement, litter removal, shouldering, culvert clean-out and repair, and snow removal.
While damage to pavement was heavy this spring, due probably to the numerous freeze and thaw cycles which occurred throughout the winter, general spring
clean-up was somewhat lighter than in previous years.
On Trans-Canada Highway 1, rock scaling was carried out in the Kicking
Horse Canyon section of the highway east of Golden.
A new overhead sign was erected north of Golden to provide information as
to the status of Rogers Pass during avalanche periods.
Abandoned gravel pits were landscaped and trees planted to provide future
aesthetic cover.
Traffic acceleration and deceleration lanes were painted at the main intersection with Highway 95.
On Kootenay-Columbia Highway 93/95, an annual recurrence of a large
upheaval of the roadway at Parson Slide 27 miles south of Golden was alleviated
by relocation of the roadway and "loading" of the fill. There is no visible evidence
of any movement this spring.
Three miles of right-of-way fencing was completed south of Canal Flats.
Acceleration and deceleration lanes were constructed and traffic lines painted
at intersections with Fairmont Hot Springs Road, approach roads to Lake Windermere, and with the road to Invermere.
Numerous sags due to fill settlement were eased by additional gravelling and
major grader patching of pavement.
Numerous washes on embankments were repaired by filling with oversize
material from screening plant operations.
On other roads, 19 miles of right-of-way were brushed.
Thirteen miles of roadway were widened, improved, and gravelled.
Three miles of crushed gravel were placed.
Seventeen miles of M.C. 3 cut-back asphalt treatment were completed on 37
side roads and subdivision roads.
Eight miles of calcium chloride treatment were applied to 13 side roads.
Two miles of roadmix pavement were completed on seven side roads. Further paving was impossible due to asphalt shortage.
A large mud and debris slide was removed west of Athalmer on Toby Creek
Road at a location known as "Little Dragon."
Construction—The approaches to the new Brisco Bridge were reconstructed,
raising the grade.
Rock was drilled and blasted and blind corners widened on Toby Creek Road
and on Westside Road north of Wilmer.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  129
A quarter of a mile of Golden View Road was constructed and paved to provide an easterly entrance from Trans-Canada Highway 1 east of Golden to a business section.
Canyon View Road was constructed and gravelled to provide access to residential development in the unincorporated area of Invermere.
Extensive improvements to LaFontaine Road at Golden were carried out.
Snow removal—Snowfall was fairly light, ranging from a total of 66 inches
at Canal Flats to 109 inches at Quartz Creek, but storms were numerous and there
were frequent thawing and freezing cycles. This combination made necessary constant ploughing, sanding, and chemical treatment of main highways.
The avalanche areas in the Kicking Horse section of Trans-Canada Highway
1 were not active nor were the few slides that occurred of any great extent. The
longest road closure involved one hour. This closure was enforced because of the
potential hazard of active avalanches and not due to any actual physical barrier
over the roadway.
A total of 26,000 tons of sand was used over the winter months.
The student Summer Employment Programme was considered very successful. It permitted the Department to undertake numerous additional maintenance
projects such as brushing, painting guard-rail and wooden bridges, painting of
traffic markers, major clean-up of litter and debris along rights-of-way, construction
of new rest areas and improvements to existing ones, and the landscaping of gravel
pits. They also provided a much needed pool for flagging for our regular maintenance crews.
Bridges
A total of 16 bridges received fairly extensive maintenance repairs.
Two new bridges were constructed. One is a foot bridge over Edelweiss Creek
on the northern outskirts of Golden to provide access for children attending a new
school in the area. This eliminated the necessity for some 50 children to walk
on Trans-Canada Highway 1 and also cut off approximately 1 mile in distance.
The other was constructed over Windermere Creek in Lake Windermere Village to eliminate three 48-inch-diameter culverts which caused a problem each winter
due to icing.
Four bridges were reconstructed on new locations.
Buildings
The maintenance equipment and shop were moved to a new and modern complex located approximately 1 mile east of Golden on Trans-Canada Highway 1.
Concrete pads were constructed at approaches to the Golden weigh scales.
Miscellaneous
Major improvements were completed to rest areas at Doyle Creek, Braisher
Creek, and Coy Hill. Toilets were installed, painted wooden guard-rails were
placed, and foot bridges constructed over the smaller creeks. All debris and litter
were removed and trees limbed to a height of 8 feet.
To protect the structure and approaches, 5,500 cubic yards of heavy-shot
rock riprap were placed on the banks of Dutch Creek on the upstream side of the
bridge.

Revelstoke District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads, with
the emphasis on remedial work prior to the paving of Trans-Canada Highway 1 and
the seal-coating of Nakusp-Mica Creek Highway 23.
Over 30 miles of brushing were carried out on Trans-Canada Highway 1 by
special crews. Calcium chloride was used as a dust palliative on some side roads
in front of residences. Metal signposts were made up and installed west of Revelstoke on Trans-Canada Highway 1. Landscaping was undertaken at Three Valley
rest area, Shelter Bay rest area, and Shelter Bay ferry complex.
Flood damage repairs were completed at Mile 44 on Revelstoke-Mica Creek
Highway 23 and at Camp Creek on Trans-Canada Highway 1. Gabions were installed and repairs made to the cement-treated base at Shelter Bay ferry dock.
Construction—A total of 3,000 feet of storm sewer was installed at the west
approach to Revelstoke.
One-half mile of reconstruction was completed on Balfour-Kaslo-Galena Bay
Highway 31.
Construction of the eastern access to Revelstoke continued with both bridge
approaches being constructed, including the installation of bin walls.
Snow removal—Although only a slightly higher than average snowfall was
experienced over the past winter, the frequency of light falls of wet snow resulted
in the use of more sand and salt than usual.
Bridges
The bridge seats were extended on Kay Falls Bridge in preparation for a 6-
foot widening of the bridge deck.
The Rogers Pass sign bridge, complete with neon sign, was erected west of
Columbia River Bridge on Trans-Canada Highway 1.
The old Bigmouth Bridge was moved by an industrial mover onto the old highway south of Bigmouth Creek; it will be transported 76 miles to Greely next summer
to replace Greely-Illecillewaet Bridge.
Buildings
The bridge crew constructed the foundation and floor slab for the new garage
in the Trout Lake maintenance yard, and also completed the interior sheeting after
the steel building was erected by contract.
Modifications were also completed on the powder houses at Revelstoke and
Trout Lake.
Ferries
MV Galena maintained a regular schedule throughout the year, even though
running on one motor on two separate occasions while repairs were being made to
damaged propeller blades.

REGION 4
(L. A. Broddy, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George)
Quesnel, Prince George, Pouce Coupe, Fort St. John, Vanderhoof, Burns Lake,
Smithers, Terrace, and Prince Rupert Highway Districts
Quesnel District
Roads
Maintenance—Frost-boil repair was not extensive but numerous large rough
areas were levelled on Highway 97 south of Quesnel to McLeese Lake.
A large brush-cutting programme utilizing summer students was carried out
on 242 miles of roadway.
Oil as a dust palliative was distributed on 43.9 miles of residential streets and
feeder routes.
The shoulders on Highway 97 were widened for 3 miles south of Quesnel;
the intersecting streets were reconstructed and paved.
A new maintenance yard was established at Nazko, 56.6 miles west of Quesnel.
Heavy snowfalls necessitated the use of a much larger volume of chemicals and
rented equipment to give the same service as had been given previous winters.
Construction—North Star offramp, Red Bluff slide reconstruction, and two
reconstructed slides on Fraser Road were paved with plantmix base to give 2.1
miles of renewed pavement.
Reconstruction of Barkerville Road was completed, leaving the only unpaved
section of 9.6 miles ready for second-grading crushed gravel and paving.
Nazko, Blackwater, and Fraser Roads, along with other minor side roads,
were reconstructed to give a total reconstructed length of 12.6 miles.
Cinema Slide on Highway 97 north of Quesnel was repaired.
Bridges
Painting of hand-rails on all permanent bridges on Highway 97 was completed
and linseed oil was applied to the concrete deck of Canyon Creek, Cottonwood
River, and Moes Meadow Overpass on Highway 97 north of Quesnel.
Blackwater Bridge was reconstructed.
A garage was built in the new maintenance yard at Nazko.
Ferries
Soda Creek and Marguerite reaction ferries operated under normal conditions
until they were removed due to low water in November.
Prince George District
Roads
Maintenance—The spring break-up period did not cause any major frost
heaves or wash-outs on the trunk highway system within the district. However,
there were many short periods of flooding conditions and minor wash-outs on
local roads.
Unusual frost boils occurred on many local roads, which required digging out
and refilling with granular material.
 B  134 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
Construction—Major day labour included completion of reconstruction on 14
miles of main feeder roads. Hotmix grader-laid asphalt was placed on 9 miles of
these roads.
District crews upgraded and gravelled approximately 28 miles of local roads.
Obtained from 50 pits, 351,000 cubic yards of gravel and 18,000 cubic yards
of sand were used for construction and maintenance. Also 9,400 cubic yards of
rock were placed as riprap.
District crews laid 15,000 tons of hotmix asphalt when placing major patching
on Yellowhead Highway 16 East and John Hart-Peace River Highway in the Pine
Pass area.
A total of 127,000 gallons of dust palliative was placed on local roads.
Heavy rains in the fall caused some problems on earth-moving day labour
projects, but construction continued until heavy frosts in late November.
Snow removal—The record snowfall during the past winter necessitated hiring
extra cats and borrowing a snow blower to widen area roads as the snow banks
became so high graders could not push them back. Many roads were narrowed
to one-lane traffic for a time.
The bare-pavement policy was maintained fairly well, except for approximately
a week when chemicals were in low supply due to slow delivery on orders.
Pouce Coupe District
Roads
Maintenance—Winter maintenance was reasonably routine except for one
extra heavy snowfall. All school bus routes were kept open on a regular basis
except for this one time. There was an unexpected 2-foot snowfall in mid-August
that brought traffic to a standstill until the roads could be cleared. The winter snowfall was about 30 per cent above average, with slightly higher temperatures than
normal.
The summer pavement patching programme left the district with good driving
surfaces throughout the summer and most of the winter.
Dust control (decant oil) was carried out on 20 miles of gravel roads. District
forces paved 1.7 miles of road.
District forces constructed 7.5 miles, reconstructed 3.6 miles, and gravelled
6.8 miles of side roads.
The district took over 7.71 miles of new roads which were mostly subdivision
roads.
During the summer, several slide areas worsened and it took major construction
to keep the traffic moving and to get the road back in good shape. The worst areas
were the Peace River Hill and the Kiskatinaw Hill.
The Summer Employment Programme was very successful in that we were able
to clean up our various yards, paint many of our bridge fences, as well as clearing
several miles of brush on our rights-of-way, and putting headwalls on two major
culverts.
At the Sunnybrook pit, 50,000 tons of crushed gravel was prepared.
Construction—District forces completed 6.8 miles of subgrade and 75 per cent
of the pit-run and crushed gravel on the new Spirit River Road Project. After the
completion of the structured steelwork contract by Canron Ltd. and the deck contract by Dyke Construction, the new Pouce Coupe Bridge and Spirit River Road
were opened to traffic in the fall.
District forces completed the 13.3-mile project of gravel shouldering and
realignment on the Groundbirch to Arras section of the John Hart Highway.   Dis-
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  135
trict forces also completed the construction of the 3.8-mile diversion at Arras. The
lime stabilization programme (3.5 miles) on this section, which was an experiment
for this area, was done by the district and appeared to be very successful in providing a good base for pavement. The rest of the section (0.33 mile) was completed
with a soil-cement stabilization by the district for a comparison.
The paving of this area, 17.1 miles, was done by contract by Columbia Bitulithic. Upon completion of the paving and the deck contract on the new Arras
Bridge by Kingston Construction, the new diversion was opened to traffic in July.
Bridges
The district bridge crew reconstructed one bridge and did repairs on 32
bridges.
Buildings
The district bridge crew built a salt-storage shed at the Mount Lemoray yard.
Ferries
The Clayhurst ferry on the Peace River was put into operation in April and
ran through the summer until December 28. It was forced several times, due to
low water, to haul light traffic only and sometimes to stop altogether.
Fort St. John District
Roads
Maintenance—The Fort St. John Peace River area had a very long winter
which lasted a little over six months. Spring break-up was fairly normal with the
usual problems to contend with, including frozen culverts and flooding. However,
once the warm weather came the roads dried fairly quickly, allowing the construction programme to commence in the latter part of May.
The Atlin North area of the Fort St. John District had a normal break-up, with
construction starting in mid-June.
The summer was wet, as usual, which hampered construction and caused
additional maintenance problems. However, a good portion of routine maintenance
duties was carried out.
The winter came early with the first snowfall on August 17 of approximately
6 inches. Winter came again in late October, lasting six months. There was considerable snowfall and cold weather; however, the lack of winds seemed to help the
drifting problems for the most part in the North Peace area.
Construction—The district once again completed a very heavy construction
season of day labour work. Although weather conditions hampered construction for
a while, we managed to complete 68 miles of reconstruction, do 193 miles of re-
gravelling, and construct an additional 12 miles of the Fort Simpson Trail.
A new cone crusher was purchased and began crushing gravel in July on the
Stewart-Cassiar Highway, thus allowing us to resurface some 85 miles of the highway.
Considerable time was also spent this past fall in burning up debris left from
the past two years' construction; however, there is still much cleaning up to do yet.
One of the major projects in the Fort St. John area was reconstruction of the
route up from the Beatton River on Road 103. Considerable extra money was
spent on this project before it was finished. In one area of the reconstruction a slide
hampered work and still remains to be fixed.   Portions of the storm sewer system
 B  136 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1973/74
within the arterials of Fort St. John were replaced. The old wood-stave pipe had
given way in several places. The new pipe which was installed was a "smooth
flow" pipe and of a larger diameter.
Numerous others in the Fort St. John area were constructed to bring them up
to a standard to handle today's traffic.
Bridges
In the Atlin North area, three structures were replaced by culverts and other
bridges were rebuilt. The Fort St. John area saw the erection of three new bridges.
Considerable maintenance work was carried out in the Peace River area by the
bridge crew and a number of bridges were given a new coat of paint by the students
on the Summer Employment Programme.
Buildings
In 1973 the Department of Public Works became responsible for all our buildings and yards. In the Atlin North area a completely new maintenance camp was
constructed at Bob Quinn Lake, consisting of shop and two trailer-type accommodations for the Road and Mechanical Foreman. At Dease Lake a mobile home was
erected on a full concrete basement for the new District Technician. The Fort St.
John shop and out-buildings were all given a coat of paint by the students on the
Summer Employment Programme.
Ferries
The Stikine Ferry was removed from service this past year. A new bridge
replaced the ferry, starting April 10, 1973.
Vanderhoof District
Roads
Maintenance—Flood damage was minor this year as a result of the relatively
light snowfall.
Rest stops were improved again and trees were planted at two of them.
Cluculz Creek rest stop was completely reconstructed.
The spillway at the Ocock River multiplate was reconstructed using a rock
dyke and a concrete apron; this is expected to reduce the erosion problem considerably.
Approximately 1 mile of fencing was erected and two cattle guards were installed.
The Summer Employment Programme enabled the district to accomplish many
high labour-content jobs such as bridge painting, fencing, slashing, yard maintenance, and sign maintenance.
Construction—In the Frangois Lake area, 3.1 miles of Francois Lake Road
and 3.6 miles of Nithi Road were reconstructed in continuing projects and 0.5 mile
of Endako Mines Road was reconstructed in preparation for paving in 1974.
In the Fort St. James area, Airport Road was reconstructed and paved, 1.2
miles of Stones Bay Road realigned, and 1.6 miles of Sowchea Road reconstructed.
In the Vanderhoof area a large fill was constructed on Braeside Road to correct a poor alignment. A corduroy was used to cross a swamp when reconstructing
2 miles of Chilco North Road.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  137
District crews also constructed and paved the approaches for the new Nechako
Bridge at Fort Fraser and rebuilt the shoulders along Yellowhead Highway 16
from Fort Fraser Overhead to Savory in preparation for paving in 1974.
Bridges
Nechako Bridge 2 at Fort Fraser was constructed by contract during the summer and opened to traffic in October. The new Stellako Bridge was started this
year and the contractor is expected to complete in 1975.
District crews reconstructed five timber bridges—-Butcher Flats, McLeod, Star-
key, Collins, and Todd and also carried out maintenance on 12 other bridges.
Mining Roads and Bridges
Flood damage occurred again on Omineca Road and was repaired during the
gravel and culvert installation programme. Bridges in the Manson Creek area
were repaired and replaced. A road and bridge inspection programme was carried
out in October.
Burns Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—Spring break-up and run-off have caused fewer problems this
year. Prior to repaving Yellowhead Highway 16 west of Burns Lake an extensive
patching programme had been carried out.
Good use was made of a pull grader and Gradall. About 15 miles of side
roads were ditched and gravelled. Many culvert replacements and new installations
were made.
Roads in heavily populated areas were oiled for dust control; 1.5 miles of side
roads received surface treatment.
A large Summer Employment Programme crew was employed during the summer brushing road allowances, culvert cleaning, and painting all guard-rails and
signposts.
For the second consecutive year the Burns Lake District has won the Regional
Safety Trophy.
Construction—The reconstruction of Topley Landing Road was completed
and subsequently paved by the contractor.
Relocations of the Yellowhead Highway 16 west of Burns Lake were completed.
Shoulder widening along the Yellowhead Highway 16 was carried out from
Mile 18 to Mile 24, west of Burns Lake.
Snow removal—An above-average snowfall was experienced but, with minor
exceptions, roads were open and in good condition at all times. Week-ends and
night shifts were utilized in all foreman areas.
Bridges
In addition to general maintenance, Lewis, Wakefield, and Farewell Bridges
were reconstructed.
Several wooden bridges were painted under the Summer Employment Programme.   The bracings of Pleasant Valley Bridge were raised under contract.
Buildings
A new salt-storage shed was constructed at Topley.   All buildings in the maintenance yards were painted under the Summer Employment Programme.
In the Southbank yard, three trailer-sites were constructed.
 B  138 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1973/74
Ferries
MV Jacob Henkel operated all year except for the annual refit. During this
two-week period, barge service was maintained. On busy week-ends during the
summer the barge was operated in addition to the ferry, to take care of overloads.
Some repair work was carried out on the landings and a dolphin constructed
at the south landing. A new electric compressor was installed at Southbank. The
all-electric bubble system is now complete.
Smithers District
Roads
Maintenance—Crews continued with the programme of ditching and culvert
replacement to upgrade the drainage on sundry side roads. Yellowhead Highway
16 was widened at the junction with Babine Lake Road to provide a left-turn slot.
The slashing crew cleared sight lines at three railway crossings and continued
clearing on district side roads.
Three gravel pits that are no longer in use were landscaped in preparation for
reseeding.
Construction—Work continued on Burnt Cabin Road; 1.5 miles were reconstructed and 1 mile of new location cleared. Additional frontage road was built
in Smithers to keep pace with development along the arterial highway.
Snow removal—Snowfall was again well above average. Equipment at Kitwanga kept the access road to Cranberry Junction open for traffic travelling to
Meziadin and Stewart. Yellowhead Highway 16 was maintained in a bare-pavement
condition for 90 per cent of the winter; regular night shifts and a liberal use of
de-icing salt ensured a high standard of safety. With no winter thaws, frozen
culverts were less of a problem in March, but there was a much greater accumulation
of snow on roadsides than is usual.
Bridges
Fifteen Mile Bridge at Kitwancool was replaced with a new structure using
steel stringers on treated piles with a wood deck. The new Beaver Meadow Bridge
was completed and the Babine logging traffic was able to use the cleared right-of-way
for winter hauls. The district bridge crew undertook to put in new footings for the
steel approaches at Haguelgate Bridge, near Hazelton; work was completed before
Christmas in spite of cold weather.
Ferries
The Cedarvale ferry operated extended hours through the full season; due to
low river water-levels and extreme cold the ferry had to be taken out in early
November, almost a month earlier than usual. Traffic averaged 1,900 vehicles per
month, compared to less than 1,300 in 1972. An aerial basket carried passengers
during the winter months.
Terrace District
Roads
Maintenance—The Summer Employment Programme was used to advantage
in that many labour-oriented jobs such as brushing, painting, building repair, and
general clean-up were carried out.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B  139
Pavement patching crews were kept busy filling cracks on the newer surfaced
highways and patching the older pavement on Yellowhead Highway 16 west of
Terrace.
Construction—On Yellowhead Highway 16 West, bridge approaches were
constructed at the Kasiks, Exchamsiks, and Kalum River crossings to allow the
opening of these new structures. Reconstruction took place west of Terrace from
Mile 20 to 27. Work completed included 7 miles cleared and grubbed, Exstew
Bridge approaches 75 per cent completed, 1 mile of grade constructed, and riprap
material produced and in stockpile.
The upgrading of Kalum Lake Road, a 17-mile main logging haul road, was
started and will be continued through 1974.
Snow removal—Similar to the 1972/73 winter, all areas were reporting above-
average snowfall to January 31 and below average through February.
January 17 and 18 produced a record snowfall of 48 inches in a 30-hour
period. This storm on top of prior heavy snowfalls required extensive use of hired
equipment to keep roads open and to clean up after the storm.
Tragedy struck the Terrace area at approximately 7.30 a.m., January 22, 1974,
when a dry-snow avalanche totally destroyed a cafe-motel complex 28 miles west
of Terrace.   This avalanche killed all but one of the eight people at the motel.
One of those killed was a snowplough operator employed by the Department.
Bridges
A new 80-foot pile-bent bridge was completed on the Krumm Road extension
to Highway 25.
Ferry
Ferry service at Usk was provided by reaction ferry during the summer and by
aerial ferry throughout the winter months.
A double-shift service at the crossing has been planned and is to take effect
April 1,1974.
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance—With the assistance of various summer programmes made available to the district, the opportunity was utilized to carry out many labour-oriented
jobs such as right-of-way slashing and clean-up; also a programme of sign, delineator
posts, and guard-rail painting was undertaken. Shoulder drainage improvements
were made to Highway 16 and several lengths of no-post guard-rail were installed.
Several rock through-cut sections of Stewart-Meziadin Road were widened to
facilitate easier snow removal.
An extensive programme of reditching was carried out on Stewart-Meziaden
Road, the Cassiar and Yellowhead Highways, and Port Edward Arterial.
Construction—
Rupert area: Construction of an access road to Rainbow Lake Ski Hill
was continued and good progress has been made through some difficult terrain.
On Yellowhead Highway 16 at Rainbow Lake, a major drainage containment is being rectified by the installation of a multiplate
flume which will be completed during the 1974 season.
 B  140 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1973/74
Queen Charlottes: Construction of the Tlell Park access road was completed and a timber sale arranged to dispose of merchantable timber
taken during right-of-way clearing.
Stewart area: Realignment and construction of an 8-mile section of Cassiar
Highway 37 north from the Nass River Bridge was completed.
A minor realignment was made on Stewart-Meziadin Road at
Bitter Creek.
Snow removal—Average snowfalls were experienced in the Prince Rupert and
Queen Charlotte areas with above-average snowfalls being experienced in the
Stewart-Meziadin area. Winter maintenance appeared to go smoothly in all areas
with very few closures being experienced on Yellowhead Highway 16 or the Bear
Pass section of Stewart-Meziadin Highway. This was the first year that the Cassiar
Highway remained open year-round despite our most severe problem being the
spring break-up of the road south from Meziadin Lake to Cranberry Junction.
Bridges
In the Queen Charlottes the Tlell River Bridge, a six-span glue-laminated
structure of 300-foot length, was completed.
The Prince Rupert and Stewart areas kept the bridge crew busy redecking and
repairing several timber structures. Emergency repairs were made to the Bear
River Bridge following damage caused by a truck colliding with the structure.
Ferries
On a continuing basis the Department made subsidy payments to Prince Rupert
Ferry (1967) Ltd., operating to connect the airport on Digby Island with the city.
A similar payment was made to Misty Island Transportation Co. Ltd. for ferry
service between Graham and Moresby Islands in the Queen Charlottes. Plans for
an expanded operation of this ferry under the British Columbia Ferries Branch of
the Department were announced in the early spring of 1974.
Buildings
Use was made of the Summer Employment Programme to carry out much
needed painting and maintenance of Department buildings and garages. The district occupied its new shops at Stewart and Meziadin Lake and a new recreational
trailer was received for Meziadin Lake camp.
