1976
  The Honourable Alex. V. Fraser, Minister of Highways and Public Works.
 To Colonel the Honourable Walter Stewart Owen, Q.C, LL.D.
Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour:
Herewith I respectfully submit the Annual Report of the Department of
Highways for the fiscal year ended March 31, 1976, in compliance with the provisions of the Department of Highways Act.
ALEX. V. FRASER
Minister of Highways and Public Works
Office of the Minister of Highways
and Public Works,
Parliament Buildings, August 20, 1976.
 Victoria, B.C., August 11, 1976.
The Honourable Alex. V. Fraser,
Minister of Highways and Public Works,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir: I am pleased to present the Annual Report of the Department of
Highways for the fiscal year ended March 31, 1976.
The Report contains details of the work undertaken by the Department in all
phases of its operations during that period, and I will comment briefly on some of
the highlights.
With regard to the Maintenance Operations of the Department, we have now
completed the first year using the new Maintenance Management System, developed
previously. This has provided the Department with a clearer picture of the size of
the task of maintaining the public roads of the Province. It will enable the Department to improve the standard of its performance and relate this directly to costs.
The pace of new capital construction during the last few years has dropped off,
as you are aware, and it will be necessary in the future for much larger sums to be
allocated annually for new highway construction and pavement replacement if we
are to maintain the level of service on our trunk highway system which the citizens
of this Province have come to expect.
In relation to the number of personnel, the Planning Section of the Department
of Highways has carried out a substantial volume of work during the period under
review. The importance of this phase of the Department's work cannot be overemphasized and there is a real need to expand its capabilities to include economic
analysis, multi-year program development, and detailed financial planning.
During the year, there were further developments in connection with the
avalanche control program. On January 16, 1976, an avalanche claimed the lives
of three occupants of a car on the Salmo-Creston Highway. The lives of the two
other occupants were saved by the timely rescue efforts of Departmental personnel.
The Department's efforts in predicting and combating these hazards have been
intensified in those areas of the highway system where the dangers are greatest.
In another incident, the heroism and rescue training of Departmental crews
were instrumental in saving the lives of five out of eight occupants of a car which
ran off the road into the Cranberry River in northwestern British Columbia on June
14, 1975. The efforts of this group were recognized by the presentation of St. John
Ambulance awards and Premier's citation certificates to those who took part in the
dramatic rescue operation.
The outstanding efforts of Departmental personnel in the wake of destruction
of a number of bridges and roads in the northern part of Vancouver Island last fall
should also be mentioned. Record rainfalls swept away a number of bridges and
caused renewed mudslides at Port Alice. The long hours of extra work carried out
by the Department's crews in restoring service in the shortest possible time were
acknowledged by many members of the general public.
A new innovation which became operational during the year was the changeable message sign installed at seven locations throughout the Province. These
signs, which are programmed to display up to 64 different messages, were erected
at key locations to advise travellers of road conditions in areas subject to severe
winter weather. The signs, which can be operated from remote locations, have
been well received by the public.
 During the year, notable retirements of long-service personnel were:
36 years' service: Edith Silver, Office Manager at Vanderhoof.
35 years' service:
Michael Pope, Landscape Supervisor, Headquarters.
Bertie Fitchell, Head Ferryman.
Also leaving the Department for retirement during this period was the Senior
Associate Deputy Minister, H. T. Miard.
Mr. Miard served the Department and the people of the Province most conscientiously for a period of 28 years. He joined the Department in 1947 as District
Engineer in Nelson and served in a number of positions prior to being promoted to
Deputy Minister in 1958. His contribution to the development of the Department
and to its achievements is acknowledged by all his former colleagues.

 REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER

REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER
In their operations throughout the fiscal
year from April 1, 1975, to March 31, 1976,
the four regions were extremely active in their
maintenance of the existing network of roads
and of bridges and other structures in the Province and in the operation and maintenance of
the Department of Highways ferry system. As
detailed elsewhere in this Report, the Department assumed maintenance responsibilities of
new highways, roads, and structures and ferry
routes introduced into the system in the fiscal
year. A widespread program of minor betterments to the road system was undertaken.
In these operations we were successful in
overcoming an extremely heavy winter in snowfall and avalanche activity and in severe fall
rainstorms in the coastal area of the Province.
Departmental staff were assisted in this
task by the introduction of a maintenance man-
r. g. Harvey agement system still in the introductory phase,
and by the extension of control of personnel by the establishment of an annual
approved work force of regular employees and by more extensive checking and
regular control of the auxiliary work force. The Department was not successful
in the proposed introduction of two new regions, one in the northwestern quarter
of the Province and one on Vancouver Island. This will continue to be proposed.
A sustained program of accident prevention measures and safety and health
protection and training of employees was continued. In labour relations the Department took part very substantially in the negotiation of master and component
agreements.
The Property Negotiations Branch undertook a heavy program of acquisition
of lands and real property for road right-of-way and other purposes, and minor
disposal of surplus property. With the conclusion of the Libby Dam work, the
Branch concluded its property acquisition work for other agencies. The Department
acquired additional and improved accommodations in offices, yards, and buildings
in the year, but a very substantial backlog in these facilities continues to exist.
In its control of expenditure of funds, the Accounts Branch maintained close
management in the face of quite severe over-all restraints by Government in
personnel complement and the purchase of materials, equipment, and services
throughout the year.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
REPORT OF SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
Total cost of maintaining 25,000 miles of road,
bridges, and ferries was $91 million, up $11 million over
that of the previous year. While wage increases and inflationary trends in general have had a major influence on
this cost, the rate of increase at 12 per cent is down from
that of the previous year.
During November and early December 1975, intense
storm activity produced heavy precipitation in the form of
rain at lower elevations and snow in the higher elevations.
Precipitation and snow-packs were average to above average for the remainder of the winter.
Snow in the high elevations early in winter produced
deep snow-packs in the avalanche starting zones, but sub-
p. b. MacCarthy sequent precipitation and temperature resulted in average
to below average avalanche activity.
On January 16, 1976, unique snow and weather conditions at Kootenay Pass
near Creston resulted in a large snow avalanche sweeping a car and its five occupants off the highway. Two persons survived as a result of an excellent rescue
operation by Department of Highways maintenance personnel, RCMP, and a local
Search and Rescue Group.
During November and December, schools stressing avalanche safety and
rescue were conducted at Stewart and Allison Pass. Additional schools at Rogers
Pass and Whistler Mountain, sponsored by the National Research Council and B.C.
Institute of Technology, were also attended by Departmental personnel.
Avalanche safety was improved by the purchase of avalanche rescue beacons,
two-way radios, lighting equipment, and other essential rescue equipment. Avalanche warning signs were erected in many of the Province's avalanche areas.
Climatological stations were established in co-operation with the Atmospheric
Environment Service. Data from these mountain stations were forwarded daily
to the Vancouver Weather Office to help improve weather forecasts for avalanche
areas.
Reports on avalanche magnitude and frequency were completed in avalanche
areas throughout the Province. This is part of the ongoing record of avalanche
occurrences on British Columbia highways. Preventive road closures during
periods of high avalanche hazard were implemented by local Departmental officials.
Exceptional rainfall on the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island throughout
October and November once again caused serious mudslides above the Village of
Rumble Beach near Port Alice and forced evacuation of the community for several
days. Flooding was widespread throughout the Sayward Valley and northern
Vancouver Island, resulting in road closures, washouts, and severe damage to
bridges and culverts. The bridge at Marble River was completely washed away,
severing the road between Port Alice and Port McNeill for over a week until installation of a 150-foot Bailey bridge span was completed.
In early December there was severe flooding at Yarrow in the Fraser Valley,
and Trans-Canada Highway through the Fraser Canyon was closed for several days
because of rock and mud slides. Chilliwack Lake Road was closed for several days
because of exceptional high water in the Chilliwack River, which caused serious
river bank erosion over a distance of 1,000 feet.
 REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER
B  13
Once again a major day-labour program was successfully completed, and this
included paving, oiling, and dust control programs with liquid calcium chloride for
local roads involving district crews and equipment.
A summer employment program for men and women, mostly students, was
undertaken between June and September, with funds being approved and administered by the Department of Labour. This program accounted for $1,130,000 in
wages, material, and hired equipment, and the hiring of 500 employees.
ROADSIDE DEVELOPMENT
Hydroseeding of highway roadsides was undertaken in all four regions of the
Province in 1975, using four separate crews. In all, a total of 3,393 acres was
seeded, 686 acres mulched, and 1,945 acres refertilized.
Region 4 did not start its hydroseeding program until mid-July due to unavailability of equipment, but nevertheless put in a successful year. Owing to the large
size and efficiency of this region's machine, its next year's hydroseeding totals could
well double, provided sufficient funds are available for materials.
The 1975 rest area program involved upgrading of approximately 25 sites
throughout the Province and construction of another seven. The major rest area
site at Bradner Road on Highway 1 near Abbotsford was developed to the stage
that it was possible to open it to the public in the fall of 1975. Bradner will be
completed in 1976 after construction of a combined tourist information-rest room
building and sani-station for trailers. To date, the site has paved roads and parking-
lots, a water system, lighting fixtures, picnic tables, and temporary toilet buildings.
A considerable amount of rest area work is intended throughout the Province
for next year. Plans have been drawn for many new rest areas (several major ones)
as well as updating existing sites with flush toilets and sewage disposal fields.
Vernon District continued producing concrete roadside appliances. In addition to the regular articles manufactured, a new style concrete litter container was
introduced.
Total production consisted of 120 picnic tables, 35 complete toilet units, 15
concrete litter containers, and 6 information shelters. New sets of moulds were
made for all of the aforementioned. In addition, 20 white fibreglass toilet roofs
were made, and the interior of the Region 3 hydroseeding unit tank was relined.
Prince George Region has planned an extensive herbicide program for most
of its districts in 1976.
Brush control was carried out in Region 3 using a mechanical brush-cutter.
Approximately 100 acres were cleared.
Regions 2, 3, and 4 were active in either drawing up plans for landscaping
Department yards or doing actual construction on them. Golden yard-site was
fully landscaped in 1975, as were three yards on Stewart-Cassiar Highway. Numerous other yards received varying amounts of improvement through planting of
trees and shrubs, screening, etc.
Plans are being made for increased activity in the area of landscaping.
Dozens of gravel pits received varying degrees of rehabilitation in the Province. The work involved resloping, grading, and (or) seeding and planting of trees
and shrubs.
One gravel site was incorporated into a rest area, another one is in the planning stages.
 B  14 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
Two regions were involved in major highway landscape projects. Upper Levels
Highway in the Vancouver area received extensive facelifting in 1975 with placement of thousands of yards of topsoil and planting of thousands of trees and shrubs.
To date, the project is 45 per cent complete and will continue next year.
There was a large maintenance program at the Knight Street Bridge site.
The Revelstoke and Golden arterial highway landscaping projects were commenced in 1975 and both are approximately 35 per cent complete.
The irrigation system for the Nelson arterial was fully installed this year and
the entire landscape project is now finished. A total of 40,000 cubic yards of fill,
soil, and sawdust was hauled and placed, 10,000 trees and shrubs planted, and
approximately 4 miles of irrigating pipe installed.
Preliminary landscaping plans have been developed for the Cranbrook
thoroughfare.
CENTRELINE AND PAVEMENT MARKINGS
During the summer of 1975, five centreline crews and two crosswalk marking
crews worked throughout the Province. With good weather prevailing for the most
part of the season, most of the program for painting directional dividing lines and
edge lines was completed.
An additional centreline truck was completed in the late summer and will be
in operation in 1976.
Statistics for the work completed are as follows:
Centrelines painted (miles) 5,673.2
Edge and land lines painted (miles) 2,377.5
Pre-lining (miles) 966.5
Crosswalks painted  341

 REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER
B  15
MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
During the 1975/76 fiscal year about 200 region and district maintenance
crews, comprised of 3,000 employees with the exception of administration personnel, reported into the Maintenance Management System. Source data were submitted by each foreman on a daily basis, they were then checked and batched by
the District Co-ordinators, with key-punching performed in the regional centres
using private contractors. The computer cards were forwarded to Victoria where
monthly Performance and Cost Reports were produced and returned to the regions
and districts.  The average turnabout time at month-end was three weeks.
In addition to the monthly computer reports a Bi-Weekly Report was prepared
manually in each district for use by the foreman. This Bi-Weekly Report was
timely so that an up-to-date standing on important activities would be available for
day-to-day work scheduling.
A rental structure was set and used to self-rent Department equipment so
that realistic unit costing could be obtained.
Managers at all levels were asked to use the system as an information aid this
year as it was not operational to the extent of an accurate yearly plan. The information that was obtained was used in early 1976 to compile a performance budget
for the 1976/77 fiscal year. This performance budget sets goals of accomplishment
and productivity for each activity and as well allocates the funds to each manager
by work activity. The Region and District Managers are expected to meet the
yearly work plan and to stay within allocated funds.
A Stock Control System for primary materials was developed and implemented
on April 1, 1976. This system provides for an opening and closing inventory with
usage and purchases during the year. It also is the basis for control of Departmental gravel reserves and usage.
The accompanying table is a consolidation of data to indicate, on a Provincial basis, the amount and type of work undertaken by the region and district crews.
Some minor reporting errors exist in these data due to start-up misunderstandings
and system design faults; on the whole the data are indicative of the work-type
distribution.

REPORT OF SENIOR PERSONNEL OFFICER
During the 1975/76 fiscal year the Department, in
compliance with a Treasury Board directive, agreed to a
regular establishment of 5,197 positions. All positions in
excess of this number are being reduced through attrition
and no lay-offs will take place. In addition to the Department's regular complement, additional auxiliary or seasonal
employees were hired as required and reached a peak during the month of August 1975 with a total of 1,809. Included in this total were 449 students employed during
summer vacation.
As in the past, the majority of new employees were
hired directly within districts or branches for entrance-
level positions.   Promotional opportunities during the past
year required 1,097 postings, of which 325 were processed
by the Public Service Commission and the balance by district and regional officials
with assistance from Regional and Headquarters' Personnel Officers.    Expenses
on transfer were paid to 150 successful applicants at a total cost of $277,000.
Personnel Officers from this Branch, together with operating officials, continue
to take an active part in union negotiations and participated as Management Representatives on numerous committees established under the various B.C. Government
Employees' Union contracts and Professional Employees' Association contracts.
This office processed 85 grievances and 74 appeals during the year. All were
resolved, with one grievance being submitted to a formal arbitration board.
Although the Department had no graduates from the three-year Executive
Development Training Program this year, the following employees successfully
completed the one-year correspondence course in public administration: B. J.
Keane, R. K. Mclntyre, and H. O. Zimmerman.
There were 78 retirements, 18 deaths in service, 42 twenty-five year continuous service awards, and four thirty-five year awards in the Department during
the fiscal year.
TRAINING
The training being developed jointly by the Department and the B.C. Institute
of Technology is now a certificate program, officially known as the Highway Technology Training Program (HTTP). Approximately 550 employees are currently
enrolled in seven courses.
In addition to the courses specifically developed, provision is made to recognize some of the other training in the Department, for credit toward certification.
In addition, financial assistance has been given to a number of employees for
random courses relevant to their occupation.
First aid training has continued for industrial certificates and approximately
1,700 employees received the one-day St. John Multi-Media course, with emphasis
on the small crews more removed from medical facilities.
This Section administers the Department's Apprenticeship Programs with 42
mechanics, 13 electricians, 2 auto-body mechanics, 1 carpenter, and 1 sign painter.
SAFETY
The Government's new safety policy was published by the Provincial Secretary,
highlighting the prime responsibilities of management and supervision, in so far
 REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER
B 23
as accident prevention is concerned, and emphasizing the importance of our
employees complying with safety and health regulations and adopting a responsible
attitude toward safety on the job.
The Minister of Highways and Public Works policy directive was published,
together with the Department's "9 Point Accident Prevention Programme," and
given the widest possible distribution. All personnel, both senior and junior, were
urged to develop fully the desire to prevent accidents and injuries on the job.
Our Safety and Health Committee organization completed its final development. The Headquarters Safety and Health Committee and the four Regional
Committees, together with 46 District and Sub-District Safety and Health Committees, held their meetings on a monthly basis, improving the flow of information
concerning safety and accident prevention in the field.
During the late winter and spring, Safety Award banquets were held for the
winners of the Regional Safety Awards, taken by Saanich, Vernon, Revelstoke, and
Quesnel Districts.
Region 1 was successful in the competition for the Honourable Minister of
Highways and Public Works Safety Trophy, which was presented by Mr. Fraser
at the Saanich banquet.
Our safety performance improved substantially over the previous year. The
total accident frequency rate moved from 48.2 in 1974 to 42.2, and the disabling
rate from 30.7 to 25.8.
Workers' Compensation Board claims totalled 356 for time loss and 282 for
medical aid, and the Department's man-hours totalled 10,109,601.
The number of vehicle accidents were—preventible, 260; and nonprevcntible,
347.   Total vehicle-miles for the year, 37,048,747.

During the year a total of $20,579,907.21 was expended to cover the cost of maintenance and operation of
Government equipment operated by the Department of
Highways.
The sum of $3,992,328.36 was expended on the purchase of new equipment as follows: 8 motor graders,

Sign Shop
A net expenditure of $348,787.17 was incurred by the Departmental Sign
Shop in producing a total of 79,068 signs.
Some 76,400 signs were shipped prepaid to the Department of Highways
district yards and to various other departments throughout the Province. The
remaining signs were retained at the Sign Shop to give a total of 28,000 standard
signs in stock.
Report of Communications Engineer
Because of the many technical changes made in Regions 1 and 3 over the
last few years, it was necessary to spend most of 1975 "cleaning up" the radio
system to eliminate a number of minor problems caused by rapid expansion. As a
result, only one new repeater was added near Wells. A few were moved slightly
to improve radio coverage, and many were modified to reduce their susceptiblity
to lightning strikes. Until recently, nearly 50 per cent of our radio repeater failures
were caused by lightning.
Approximately 500 new mobile radios were purchased for additional and
replacement purposes. Fifty stations were also purchased, primarily to replace
much of our obsolete base station equipment.
A new cable TV system was installed at Good Hope Lake Camp. Residents
are now able to watch programs broadcast from the Watson Lake CBC TV transmitter, which receives its signal direct from the Anik communications satellite.
Channel 8 from Vancouver was added to the cable TV system at Allison Pass
Camp.
The engineering and planning work for system changes in 1976 for Region
2 has been completed.
Report of Superintendent of Ferries
During the past year, ferry service was provided on 35 routes under the
jurisdiction of the Department. This was accomplished by a fleet consisting of
21 major ferries, eight reaction ferries, four cable ferries, five subsidized ferries,
and four miscellaneous ferries. There are also two tugs and six barges maintained
for emergency service.
TRAFFIC
The fleet carried 6,545,701 passengers and 2,639,876 vehicles.

REPORT  OF  CHIEF  HIGHWAY ENGINEER
Submitted herewith 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.
Despite the adverse weather conditions of autumn
and winter, construction progress was quite favourable,
but slow.
On Trans-Canada Highway 1 the Upper Levels section in West Vancouver was fully completed to a four-lane
highway as were sections between Popkum and Wahleach
which are part of the construction program to extend the
four lanes to Hope.    Likewise, the four-lane construction program on Vancouver  Island is progressing quite
favourably.
Bridge construction and paving were again quite extensive and in line with
the ever-increasing traffic volumes now being carried by the highway system, which
in turn is a design factor for future needs across the Province.
The national inflation problem is very pronounced in British Columbia and
certainly reflected in the high construction costs.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF HIGHWAY DESIGN AND SURVEYS
Highway design and surveys completed during the
fiscal year are listed in the text of this report, totalling
276 miles of preliminary line, 213 miles of location line,
and 188 miles of office design and estimates. This is a
reduction of some 20 per cent over last year and is a
reflection of the reduced production brought about by
reduced working-hours and staff retrenchment over the
period. Total staff employed as of March 31, 1976, was
comparable to that of March 31, 1975:
Conversion of survey and design procedures to
metric units is progressing well and it is expected that
several projects will be designed in metric units by next
year.
The environment study on Kitwanga-Meziadin Highway was completed and the results are now being evaluated. Measures to minimize
environmental impact on wildlife in the area are being incorporated into the design.
Another study was made on a proposed new route to Fort Simpson, and the
Branch is now participating in a multidisciplinary study of proposed new transportation routes in the Chetwynd and Dawson Creek areas in connection with coal
development. This study will integrate the work being done by B.C. Rail and the
various coal developers to ensure that environmental aspects are taken fully into
account beforehand. Some 100 miles of new route may be eventually involved.
All work on this project will be in metric units of measurement.
E. E. Readshaw.
Report of the Metric Engineer
The Metric Engineer was appointed in October 1974 to administer the complexities of metric conversion within the Department and to be the engineering
representative of the Departmental Metric Conversion Committee.
During 1975/76 the planning phase for metric conversion was well advanced.
The initial steps were taken to implement metric conversion within each branch of
the Department. Some delays are being encountered due to the slow evolution of
National Standards in metric, as was anticipated.
The nationally agreed-to date for converting all highway signs to metric is
September 1977. The production of the needed 26,000 metric signs has been
delayed due to a lack of adequate storage space. The production of metric signs
will require top priority if we are to meet the September 1977 deadline.
Plans are being made for Departmental metric training sessions during late
1976 and 1977. Metric surveys are scheduled to start in 1976 in each of the
four Department of Highways regions.
PRELIMINARY STUDY SECTION
The following has been undertaken by this section of the Design and Surveys
Branch between April 19, 1975, and March 31, 1976:

REPORT OF SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
A total of $30.9 million was expended on bridges and
ferry terminals. The following reports of the Bridge
Design Engineer, Bridge Construction Engineer, and the
Dock Engineer give details of the activities of the Branch
over the year.
Bridge highlights of the year were the improvements
to the North Viaduct of Lions Gate Bridge, completion of
the many bridges on the four-lane Trans-Canada Highway
through West Vancouver, and the opening to traffic of the
$6.1 million bridge over the Skeena River at Terrace.
The Dock Engineer's staff had a busy year with the
new berths being built at Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen as
well as new terminals at Kuper Island, Skidegate, and Alli-
ford Bay.   The two latter terminals were required for a
new service provided between the two main Queen Charlotte Islands by the Department's new ferry Kwuna.
Bridge Design
The trend of design work being directed to structures in various parts of the
Province continued. Design commenced on a group of structures on the new
highway construction of the Terrace to Prince Rupert section of Yellowhead Highway 16. The superstructure of these bridges will be prestressed-concrete box-
stringers. These stringers, at present in stock at Terrace, are part of the bulk
order which was made to form a stock, in Region 4, of permanent superstructure
material suitable for shortspan bridges replacing the older type of timber-trestle
structure.
The design of structures continued for Island Highway 19.

In addition to the above operations, 4 major maintenance projects as well as
normal maintenance at all British Columbia Ferries Division terminals and at those
Department of Highways ferry terminals under this jurisdiction were carried out.
Bridge Construction
In the 1975/76 fiscal year, 22 vehicular bridges were completed or opened to
traffic with minor work yet to be done. In addition, five bridges were improved by
widening their roadways or by redecking, one bridge demolition contract was completed, construction was completed on one railway underpass and the extension of
another, and one pedestrian overcrossing was completed. On March 31, 1976,
five bridges were under construction and work had not commenced on another
which was under contract.   Particulars are given in the accompanying listing.
Construction activity was relatively brisk during the first half of the year,
resulting in the completion of many contracts, the continuation of work on a few
in the milder winter areas, and postponement of work on others until the spring of
1976.
Of the appropriations for bridge construction, 23 per cent was spent on Lions
Gate, Kitwanga, and Terrace South Bridges.
In a period of 12 weeks this year, those persons who commute regularly across
Lions Gate Bridge in Vancouver saw the almost daily progress of deck transformation on the north viaduct from a 29-foot deteriorating roadway to a smooth 35-foot
width. Full-width deck sections fabricated in Vancouver and barged to the site
were temporarily aligned on the ground for the application of an epoxy asphalt
wearing surface and made ready for lifting into position. On a scheduled night
the bridge was closed to traffic, a section of the old deck and floor system removed,
a new section placed, and the bridge reopened in time for the early morning rush.
Great credit is due to the consultant for the imaginative design and to the fabricator
for the execution of the work.

 B 44 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
Kitwanga Bridge, which spans the Skeena River near Kitwanga and is located
on the road system connecting Highway 16 to Stewart-Cassiar Highway, was
officially opened to traffic on November 22, 1975.
Terrace South Bridge was officially opened to traffic on October 25, culminating
three years of construction which were fraught with problems and difficulties.
Though open to traffic for some time, work on an electrical contract still
continues on Knight St. Bridge with a completion anticipated in mid-1976.
Bridge construction on the Upper Levels section of Trans-Canada Highway 1
came to an end in November with the opening of the twin overpasses over Taylor
Way. In all, 17 structures were built since the start of the reconstruction of that
section of the highway with a total outlay of approximately $8 million. Bridge
construction was generaly slow, being hampered by various construction delays,
material shortages, and labour strife.
Two bridges were completed this year on Island Highway 19 in Nimpkisk
Valley, bringing the total to 10 and completing the requirements for the newly
constructed sections of highway in that area.
Just prior to the end of the fiscal year, erection of steelwork was completed on
Nanaimo River and Haslam Creek Bridges. Initial work on these two bridges,
which are associated with four-laning of Trans-Canada Highway 1 on Vancouver
Island, commenced in April.
With the arrival of fall rains the good progress that had prevailed came to an
end on the construction of approach fills to the new Pitt River Bridge on Lougheed
Highway and little progress was made for the remainder of the fiscal year. Late
in March the contract was awarded for the construction of the substructure of the
new bridge. The contract calls for completion of this phase of construction by
May 1, 1977.
During the year, some 4,500 tons of steel were fabricated and (or) erected
for 15 bridge structures. Steel plate and rolled section prices, which escalated
throughout the previous period, decreased and stabilized. Lions' Gate North
Viaduct modifications required 2,250 tons of steel and was the largest steel project.
Forty-seven miles of butt and fillet welds were required to joint the many steel
portions together.
Dominion Bridge Co. Ltd., who for years have been involved in many of the
larger steel bridges in the Province, announced mid-1975 that they would cease
fabrication work in British Columbia early in 1976 and did so upon completion of
the 450-ton Halfway River Bridge.
The inspection of the plant manufacture of precast, prestressed-concrete
bridge units continued throughout the year. Total production included 729 box-
girders or 24,063 lineal feet; 61 I-beams or 5,055 lineal feet; eight channels or
209 lineal feet. Included are 640 box-girders stored in Terrace and Prince George
for use in bridge construction as required.
Eighteen bridge decks totalling 63,350 square feet were resurfaced and two
bridge decks totalling 5,410 square feet partially resurfaced by application of a
thin concrete overlay. Ten bridge decks were restored by patching and joint
restoration was completed on five others.
Once again it is gratifying to report that the accident level on bridge construction was remarkably low.
As in the previous year and contrary to the norm, no summer help in the
form of civil engineering students or graduate technicians were hired.
As usual the field staff is augmented by consultant staff who are generally
only responsible for construction inspection of consultant designed structures.
About 40 per cent of the projects were consultant inspected.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
Capital construction projects progressed slowly during the 1975/76 fiscal period mainly due to an extremely
wet autumn and winter. Work was performed on 24
projects which represented almost 150 miles of highway
under construction. The total value of these 24 projects
was in excess of $100 million, with an expenditure of
$36,495,055 during the fiscal period. Eight of the 24
projects were completed and opened to traffic during the
year. The completed projects accounted for 55 miles of
the 150 miles under construction.
Early in the year the last section of Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway 16 between McBride and Tete Jaune
was completed.   This was the final contract of Highway 16
reconstruction from Prince George to the Alberta border.
The Upper Levels Highway through West Vancouver was fully completed and
opened to four-lane traffic.    Some landscaping work is continuing through 1976.
Farther east on the Trans-Canada Highway, work was completed on the four-
lane section from the intersection of Highway 9 at Popkum to Wahleach.    Work
is progressing favourably on a difficult rock section near Floods, with completion
of this four-lane development expected in 1977.
A large amount of work was completed during the fiscal year on the Island
Highway. A four-lane project south of Nanaimo was completed and paved.
Work has recently commenced on a further four-lane development south of Parksville. Tenders will be called shortly on a four-lane section between Duncan and
Chemainus. Tenders are expected to be called later in 1976 on the four-lane
section between Victoria and the Thetis Overhead, six miles north.

REPORT OF SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
The 1975/76 paving season reflected the easing of the
petroleum supply situation in that there were no shortages
of asphaltic materials. The cost of the various asphaltic
products continued to rise.
As well as continuing to assess the innovations in the
contractors' production equipment, the Paving Branch cooperated in the past year with the Systems Engineer in the
development of the "British Columbia Pavement Smoothness Gauge." The B.C.P.S.G. is an inexpensive instrument, designed by and assembled by Department personnel,
which is easily used by the Paving Branch Inspector to
assess the smoothness of newly laid pavements in comparison to accepted standards.
The use of "Drum Mixers" in the Province increased.
Three contracts were let with the intent of using "Drum Mixers." The asphaltic
concrete produced by this process was found equal if not improved over conventional
plants.   Further testing is being carried out.
During the year, 279 miles of roadway were paved under contract. Of this
total, approximately 190 miles had been contracted for in the previous year. In
1975, contracts were called for the paving of 240 miles of roadway, of which
approximately 90 miles were completed.
In addition to the paving by contract, Paving Branch crews completed the
roadmixing of 72 miles of roadway, surface-treated 90 miles, shoulder-treated 200
miles, and paved 19 miles of roadway using plantmixed asphalt concrete produced
under contract.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76

REPORT OF SENIOR TRAFFIC ENGINEER
During the past year, activity again increased in the
Province and the number of vehicles using British Columbia highways was significantly higher than in the previous
year. The Traffic Branch continued to co-operate with
individuals and organizations in the associated fields of
traffic safety, traffic planning, standardization of traffic
control devices, and traffic operations.
The Senior Traffic Engineer again represented the
Department on the British Columbia Safety Council, the
St. John Ambulance Highway First Aid Committee, the
Roads and Transportation Association Council on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada, and the Roads
and Transportation Association Committee on Traffic
Operations.
Short-duration annual traffic counts were taken with automatic equipment
at over 700 locations throughout the Province. Traffic volumes are recorded
continuously throughout the year at 22 additional locations, and eight of these
recorders count traffic separately for each direction of travel. A further 125 automatic counts were taken 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 loop detection
systems at regular short-duration traffic count stations on high-speed/high volume
highways. The new detectors, replacing the rubber road tubes previously used,
allow employees to set up counters on the shoulder without having to venture onto
the travelled lanes. Over 570 "loops" have already been installed at almost 170
count stations throughout the Province. The program will be continued this
summer.
Summer daily traffic volumes for 1975 showed approximately 52,000 vehicles
on First Narrows Bridge, 78,000 vehicles on Second Narrows Bridge, 59,000
vehicles on Port Mann Bridge, 60,000 vehicles on Pattullo Bridge, 46,000 vehicles
on Knight Street Bridge, 74,000 vehicles on Oak Street Bridge, and 57,000 vehicles
in the George Massey Tunnel. Data from the permanent count stations showed
increases in 1975 over 1974 of approximately 2 per cent in the southern Interior,
5 per cent on Vancouver Island, 1 per cent in the Fraser Valley, and a decrease of
2 per cent in the northern Interior.
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 40 intersections. These
improvements including 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 44 intersections throughout the
Province. Flashing beacons were installed at 10 intersections. Approximately 800
street-lighting luminaires were installed at intersections, highway interchanges, and

ferry-landings. A new primary service was designed and installed at Swartz Bay
and several other ferry terminals had changes made to upgrade their electrical
systems. 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.
The major design of the Electrical Section this year was relighting of Massey
Tunnel. The lighting design utilizes low-pressure sodium lamps. This lamp is the
most efficient light source commercially available today.
The design incorporated four daytime brightness levels and a night-time level.
All daytime lighting levels are automatically controlled by the outside light; the
brighter the day, the brighter the tunnel.
Installation of the new lighting system was carried out by the Regional Electrical Foreman's crews during the night hours of 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. In the tunnel
proper the electricians replaced 1,300 fluorescent luminaires with 720 low-pressure
sodium luminaires. This raised the lighting level of the tunnel entrance from 50 to
230 foot-candles on maximum brightness and the main part of the tunnel from 1
foot-candle to 25 during the day. At night the tunnel is lowered to 6 foot-candles.
This increased lighting level will require less power to operate than the previous
system.

 B 60
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
The new lights have already resulted in an increase peak traffic flow south
bound of 5 per cent and a reduction in travel time. It is also expected to decrease
the accidents in the tunnel.
The photo shows the entrance lighting and this is the first time the full tunnel
could be seen by the motorist. The lights are now mounted on the sides of the
tunnel and give the motorist a visual guidance through the tunnel.
Six railway grade-crossings were signalized in co-operation with the Federal
Railways Transport Committee and the railways under the committee's jurisdiction.
A number of 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 speed meter.
Fatal accidents occurring on British Columbia roads and highways during the
year were again reviewed in detail and significant characteristics tabulated.
Seven electronic changeable message signs were installed in the Province to
provide motorists with up-to-the-minute route information.
The signs were installed at Prince Rupert, Terrace, Kamloops, Princeton,
Spences Bridge, Haig, and Laidlaw. These signs cover the Yellowhead, Hope-
Princeton, and Fraser Canyon portions of the highway system.
The signs are controlled by a micro-processor or mini computer and are
activiated from the Radio Room of the Department in Kamloops. Since this office
is open continuously, the signs can be monitored for problems as well as have
messages changed.
Problems within the sign system can be determined over the telephone, which
allows a certain amount of troubleshooting from Victoria where spare parts are
stocked.
The system, believed to be the first of its kind in Canada, enables road maintenance staff to communicate to the public road conditions, road closures, and
possible detour routes.

REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
Submitted, herewith, are reports from the Senior
Planning Engineer and the Senior Geotechnical and Materials Engineer. The significant increase in subdivision
activity in the unorganized territory placed the staff under
heavy pressure. Several large-scale geotechnical investigations were initiated by the subdivision activity in order
to define areas where land development could be safely
accommodated. Major assistance was given to urban
areas regarding the planning of transportation networks
that will adequately serve future growth.

TRANSPORTATION SECTION
The Transportation Section continued to expand its
role in undertaking transportation network studies and
work is continuing in 43 communities. These studies were
undertaken to identify present and future major streets
required to provide access both to developable lands and
to serve changing intensities of land development in areas
already urbanized. Of these studies, 18 were initiated in
the current year while 25 were continued from previous
years. The work involved the presentation of planning
philosophy and processes to local government officials
followed by the preparation of preliminary network proposals which were subsequently modified by local input.
These plan proposals form the bases for Official Commu-
M.c.Eiston. njty planS and Regjonai District Plan By-laws and assist
in making land use planning decisions.
The professional staff was active in functional planning in six transportation
corridors which at present accommodate very large quantities of vehicles carrying
both people and goods. The objective was to preserve continuity in the trunk road
system, balance capacity with other associated major roads and transit services, and
prepare proposals for phased construction consistent with expected future traffic
demands. This procedure is to ensure that these corridors would efficiently accommodate both public transit and highway traffic in the same rights-of-way and thus
maximize public investment and minimize disruption to the affected areas.
The practice of tracing traffic by means of licence-plate surveys was also
expanded and 17 such studies were conducted. The procedure used involved the
recording of all licence numbers at strategic points on the road system and subsequent identification of through-traffic by computer matching of licence numbers
between appropriate observation points. Of the 17 studies, 12 were concerned
with vehicles travelling into and through urban areas while five were undertaken
to evaluate the usage of major highways during peak commuter travel. The data
were typically recorded by two to four hours at each site.
The screenline counting program initiated in the Lower Mainland in 1972 and
in Victoria in 1974 was extended to 13 other communities in 1975 and repeated in
the Greater Vancouver and Greater Victoria areas. The study comprised the
manual recording of vehicles and persons crossing physical, jurisdictional, and land
use boundaries. Such records provide a direct evaluation of commuter travel and
trends in both the numbers of vehicles and vehicle occupancy. A computer program has now been developed to summarize the data and compute peak statistics.
Over 5,000 hours of these data were recorded.
The roadside interview program was continued and used to assess the recreational travel patterns, including origins, destinations, and home bases of the road-
users. Six such studies were conducted, including a survey of traffic associated with
a new National park. In addition to interviews on the trunk highways, truck
traffic was interviewed at four weigh-scales and information on truck axle weights,
commodities carried, origins, and destinations were recorded. The type of licensing
was also noted.
The interview information provided a direct assessment of travel on the trunk
highways, and trends in such information form a significant measure of future
demands for inter-regional road facilities.

Intersection counts were recorded in 11 communities to evaluate turning
movements and assess the effects on street capacity. Such counts were generally
conducted during peak conditions and included the types of vehicles observed.
Vehicles were classified by weight, type, and axle configuration at seven locations. Such information is an important part of the assessment of road capacity
which is adversely affected by the proportion of heavy or slow-moving vehicles on
steep grades where passing opportunities are restricted.
The policy of assessing the quantity and type of vehicle traffic generated by or
attracted to a wide variety of land uses was continued with major emphasis on
shopping centres of various sizes and in a wide range of community sizes. Such
information is a direct measure of the impact which proposed similar developments
might be expected to add to the road system and thereby permits the assessment
of expected congestion.
These various counts and surveys produced a total of over 8,500 person-hours
of data.
A special noise survey was also conducted at a site where an overpass was
being constructed. The noise levels at the adjoining residences and a church was
recorded for both week-day and Sunday traffic and it is proposed to repeat the
survey in 1976 when the overpass is in full operation. Such before and after
surveys provide a direct measure of the changes in noise levels when an overpass
is constructed in an urban area.
During the year are professional staff was increased by the addition of one
engineer and one engineer-in-training, while the technical staff was expanded by
the addition of one draughtsman. To accomplish the enlarged survey program,
21 field traffic observers were retained during the summer period while the resultant
data were coded and processed by six office staff.
The professional and technical staff continued development on specialized
computer programs used in a wide variety of traffic pattern analysis. They also
continued active participation on a number of multi-jurisdictional technical committees concerned with various aspects of transportation planning.
APPROVING SECTION
The Approving Office, together with the various regional and district offices,
dealt with 3,502 ordinary subdivisions, 857 controlled access subdivisions, 4,754
ordinary driveway applications, 627 controlled access permit applications, 2,962
utility permit applications, 513 miscellaneous permit applications.
The volumes in some cases are almost double the previous year. No one
specific reason can be given for the increase in demand but it does point to a
continuous population growth throughout unorganized territory in the Province
and a continual demand for land. The demand for large shopping centres decreased,
but this quite well may be only temporarily reflecting either a temporary saturation
of the market or the high cost of borrowed money at the moment. The Planning
Branch continues to advise the Liquor Administration Board on the location of
public houses with respect to the highway system. Many applicants wish locations
which are entirely vehicle-oriented and against the intent of the legislation dealing
with public houses or provide inadequate parking-stalls and causing parking problems on the streets and highways. In dealing with the subdivision of land there
is also increasing concern about natural hazards. While some hazard events may
occur some time after a subdivision is approved, the agency which approved the
subdivision in the first instance is usually looked to for compensation.   Accordingly,
 B 64 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
the staff dealing with subdivisions through seminars and courses are coached on
preliminary signs for land slip, avalanches, and so on.
MUNICIPAL PROGRAMS SECTION
During the 1975/76 fiscal year, this Section dealt with a wide variety of
subjects pertaining to classified highways within organized areas. Funds in the
amount of $1,298,938 were approved for secondary highway capital works and
$148,913 for secondary highway maintenance work. Discussions were carried out
with 15 municipalities concerning cost-sharing arrangements for bridges, and with
11 municipalities concerning cost-sharing on arterial highways. There were 26
changes made in highway classification. Comments and recommendations concerning 33 proposed municipal boundary extensions were submitted to the Department of Municipal Affairs.
SYSTEMS PLANNING SECTION
The major road network of the Province was photologged along with selected
side roads. Seven thousand miles of road were filmed, which includes 300 miles
that was photologged for Alberta Department of Highways.
The project status information system and the highway inventory system were
maintained and expanded.
•The annual capital construction program was prepared and distributed.
Research correlating the British Columbia Pavement Smoothness Gauge to
the Pavement Performance Rating panel, the profilometer, and other mechanical
roughness devices was completed. The B.C.P.S.G. research on new pavements
was started and specifications for new pavements were proposed. The B.C.P.S.G.
was introduced to Paving Branch where it will be used to collect additional data for
new pavement and as a quality control device.
Negotiations led to a second one-year Western Northlands Federal Provincial
Agreement on cost-sharing of highway construction in the northern part of the
Province.
The Departmental Committee of Computer Users prepared reports and recommendations on computer activities. Various interdepartmental committees were
attended, including the Data Services Committee and the Outdoor Recreation Coordinating Committee. Information on research and development projects under
way was collected and distributed for increased co-ordination with other provinces
and national and international information agencies.

REPORT OF GEOTECHNICAL AND MATERIALS TESTING BRANCH
The Branch provides geotechnical (soil and rock
investigations) and materials testing services to all other
branches of the Department of Highways. These services
are also used, to a lesser extent, by other British Columbia
Government departments and, occasionally, by B.C. Hydro
and B.C. Railway Company.
The following is a report of Branch functions and
activity for the fiscal year 1975/76.
MANAGEMENT, ADMINISTRATION, AND
SERVICES
At present, Branch facilities consist of a laboratory
j. w. g. Kerr. workshop  and offices  at Victoria Headquarters and in
regional centres at Burnaby, Kamloops, Nelson, and Prince
George, as well as a storage and parts centre for large
equipment items in Burnaby.    In line with proposed reorganization of regions,
authority has been received to establish a field laboratory in Terrace to provide
more efficient service to the western part of Region 4 (proposed future Region 5).
Major equipment items include six diamond drills, a horizontal drill and overburden drill, four truck-mounted power auger rigs, one cat-mounted power auger
rig, three cat-mounted backhoes, seven Benkelmen Beam trucks for pavement
testing, a 12-channel refraction seismograph, two light-duty frequency domain electrical resistivity units, a three-channel blast-monitoring seismograph, and several
smaller equipment items used in field and laboratory investigation.
It has been difficult to maintain staffing, particularly for certain specialist skills,
as a result of a restrictive policy on hiring. Although this coincided with a slight
decrease in the number of requests for services from within the Department, there
has been an increased demand from other agencies such as Public Works, Housing,
B.C. Railway, and B.C. Hydro. Therefore, as in past years, it has been necessary
to use the services of drilling contractors and consulting engineers to supplement
Branch resources as well as for their special expertise.
Several staff members attended courses or seminars on geotechnical engineering topics to keep up with the latest trends in this field. In February 1976,
J. Horcoff presented a paper "Terrain Evaluation on Highway Engineering" to a
Conference of the Cordilleran Section of the Geological Association of Canada in
Vancouver. Special project work included planning for metric conversion, and
review of general specifications as well as of BCIT technology courses being developed for the Department.
ROUTE SURVEY INVESTIGATIONS  (SOIL SURVEYS)
This function serves the highway design program by providing subsurface
investigations and interpretation of data which, when combined with the land survey
data, form the basis for new highway location designs. Because the subsurface
investigations are very demanding in time and money, it is necessary to confine
activities to potential problem areas such as poor soil conditions relative to cut and
fill stability, broad identification of proposed fill materials, and gravel pit prospecting. The rapidly increasing relative cost of such direct investigation methods as
diamond drilling, auger drilling, and test pitting has made it increasingly desirable
 B 66 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
to use more indirect terrain evaluation techniques. The indirect methods include
geological review, airphoto interpretation, seismic refraction, and electrical resistivity
surveys. More than 55,000 feet of seismic line were shot on seven projects to
determine bedrock depths and overburden characteristics. Almost all of the 35
projects worked on during 1975/76 were for widening or reconstruction along
existing corridors. Typical projects included Highway 7 from North Road to Cape
Horn and from Coquitlam to Pitt River. A detailed soil survey was also performed
by C.B.A. Consulting Engineers for a possible connection between Cape Horn and
Pitt River. In the Nelson Region, studies have resumed on the feasibility of alternate solutions (tunnel, large open cut, structure) for improvements to Highway 6
at Cape Horn Bluffs. Intensive soil survey work was completed for the new grading
contract between Prince George and Tabor Lake and the marginal soils on this
project will be the subject of further research during construction. Other soil surveys in the Prince George Region included Highway 97 from Prince George to Chief
Lake Road, Kitwanga North and Galloway Rapids to Prince Rupert on Highway 16.
Thurber Consultants completed an indirect terrain evaluation and materials search
study in the area between Prince Rupert and Port Simpson.
FOUNDATION DESIGN INVESTIGATIONS
Foundation investigations are mostly done by testhole drilling and field testing
for the purpose of determining allowable bearing capacities, settlement characteristics, and foundation type for various structures such as bridges, buildings, major
culverts, and fills.
Foundation investigation for bridges totalled 15 and for various buildings 22.
The building sites ranged from proposed Government buildings being designed by
Public Works, weigh-scales by the Department of Transport and Communications,
and some proposed housing areas for the Department of Housing. The Branch
also assisted with planning and field investigations (drilling and seismic work) for
a possible steel-mill site near Kitimat in behalf of the Department of Industrial
Development, Trade, and Commerce. Because of a decrease in the number of
projects requiring detailed deep drilling normal for bridge-sites, the Branch accepted
from B.C. Hydro a large drilling job regarding the investigation of alternate dam-
sites on the Peace River. A large horizontal drilling program for drainage of a slide
area at the Peace River was undertaken for the B.C. Railway.
AGGREGATE INVESTIGATIONS
This function comprises prospecting for new gravel pits and rock quarries, the
evaluation of existing pits and the quality control of processed aggregates for base-
course components and concrete mixes. The normal methods consist of a combination of geological and airphoto studies, electrical resistivity surveys, auger drilling,
test pitting, and laboratory testing of samples. Because of the increasing difficulty
in securing economical and adequate aggregate sources, the investigations for new
and existing pits represent a major function of the Branch, especially at the regional
level. More than 125 separate areas required more or less intensive investigation
work. Projects included extensive work to find gravel in the Fort St. John, Vanderhoof, Quesnel, and 100 Mile House Districts especially for application to secondary
roads; review by electrical resistivity, seismic, and auger drilling of the results of an
airborne geophysical survey by Barringer Research Corporation in a 100-square
mile area north and east of Fort St. John, and some laboratory testing participation
in a large drilling program being undertaken by B.C. Hydro to assess the gravel
resources along the Peace River subject to flooding should more dams be built.

B 67
STABILITY INVESTIGATIONS
Landslides, whether man-made or of natural origin, are a familiar aspect of
the British Columbia terrain. The Branch function on this problem is twofold—
to analyse and recommend stabilization works for existing slides interfering with
the highway system and, secondly, to investigate areas where changes including
earthworks are being proposed and ensure that these works will not result in failures.
The number of disrupting landslides, normal in the spring and early summer
season, tend to increase when winter and early spring precipitation are heavy. Compared with the preceding two years, there were fewer major slides in 1975/76. The
Branch investigated some 32 slides. Most were of a relatively minor nature, including several areas in the Fort St. John area and two areas near the Cottonwood
River Bridge on the Barkerville Road. Major slides occurred at the Chase Overpass, where a deep failure of the east approach fill closed Highway 1 for several
weeks, an underwater slide at Francois Lake which disrupted the construction of a
new ferry terminal, and a large failure on Highway 97 just south of Taylor (Peace
River Hill). This last problem section is located in particularly unstable terrain and
the highway has been subject to slides at different locations for at least the last 15
years. Intensive studies indicate that the costs for a permanent solution would be
very high. Instrumentation has been installed and the area was closely observed in
the spring of 1976. At Hell's Gate Bluffs in the Fraser Canyon the planned rock
stabilization works have been concluded with a shotcreting contract. Scaling work
was also done on Slide 5. The Branch high-scaling crew, which specializes in removing danger rock from rock cutslopes, has worked on five major sites and treated
several dozen minor problem areas.
Another major activity within the stability investigation function is the preliminary terrain and slide-hazard evaluation of proposed subdivision areas. Requests
for this work come from the Approving Officers and the Department of Housing
and are handled by geologists or geographers in the regions and at Headquarters.
Kamloops Region had the largest number of such investigations (35 areas, representing 363 lost), with lesser amounts in each of the other regions. Major studies
under way are: Rubble Creek north of Squamish under the direction of an outside
study panel chaired by Dr. R. M. Hardy, a study on the bottom lands and adjoining
bench land between Kamloops and Chase, and on the bench land west and northwest of Penticton.
PAVEMENT EVALUATIONS
Pavement and base course thicknesses required for the widening and overlay
of existing pavements are determined from pavement evaluation studies which
include Benkelman Beam measurements (deflections under a standard 18,000-
pound axle road), pavement surface condition surveys, and shallow drilling through
existing pavements and base courses. In addition, Benkelman Beam testing is done
frequently during spring break-up on each of some 220 control sections to aid in
setting spring load restrictions and to give data used for new design. Pavement
evaluation studies covered about 500 miles of highway using seven Benkelman
Beam test trucks.   The large quantities of data are mostly processed by computer.
INSPECTIONS
The Branch is extensively involved in the quality control testing of materials
purchased and used by various departments of Government. Materials inspected
include concrete, Portland cement, base course and concrete aggregates, paint,
lumber, culverts, timber piles, galvanized fences, barbed wire, fence points, and

occasionally such items as hard hats and traffic cones. The inspection service ranges
from occasional spot checks for uniform materials subject to manufacturer's quality
control program to a batch-by-batch inspection on materials such as aggregates and
concrete where quality can vary quickly. As a measure of the extent of concrete
testing, our statistics show that there were 4,965 concrete cylinders cast on various
jobs and then tested in branch facilities. Other miscellaneous inspection and evaluation activities include noise and vibration surveys and the reading and analysis of
soil instrumentation installed in slide areas or under fills over soft ground. Two
members of the Branch are serving on C.S.A. committees to review and improve
specifications and test methods for concrete and concrete additives.
APPLIED RESEARCH
The Branch does a limited amount of applied research related to problems
arising with respect to materials or procedures used by the Department.
Additional studies were made on the use of wood waste (hogfuel, sawdust,
bark) as lightweight fill material where this is required over very soft ground. The
Geotechnical Branch assisted the Bridge Branch with recommendations for purchase of the special ice-pressure measurement equipment to be installed on a pier
at the recently completed Kitwanga Bridge. Measurements taken this spring will
be part of a Canada-wide research under R.T.A.C. co-ordination. In mountainous
terrain the problem of designing and maintaining a highway without excessive
rolling rock endangering the road may be eased somewhat by recent developments
for improved prediction of runout distances for such rock. Dr. Piteau has been
retained to develop a computer modelling program of potential behaviour of falling
rock. A drilling rig was developed in Region 4 to obtain frozen cores to assist in
investigating problems relating to frost heave of pavements. It is proposed to
follow an ongoing program of assessing frost heaves and recommending remedial
measures.
One member of the Branch, K. E. Bespflug, P.Eng., was honoured with
an award by the American Society of Civil Engineers for a paper on insulated
foundations.

 B 70 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
REPORT OF HIGHWAY SAFETY ENGINEER
The report year demonstrated the significant benefits
which British Columbian motorists obtained from observing the reduced maximum speed limits, which had taken
effect in November 1974. Deaths reduced by 14 per cent
and virtually all of the observed reduction in fatal accidents
occurred on the higher speed Provincial network, leading
to the lowest fatal traffic accident rate since the beginning
of record-keeping. There has been a good acceptance of
the measure and realization of its lifesaving purpose.
Several aspects of the relationship between travelling
speed and accidents became clearer. First was the expected
reduction in the severity of accidents due to impact and
collision  speeds  being lowered.     Second,   there  was   a
j. Lisman. beneficial effect due to vehicles travelling at more uniform
speeds with less spread in speeds between slower and faster than average vehicles.
It has been recognized for many years that the physical form of the highway
can play a direct part in determining the accident rate, and freeways have been
designed to eliminate most of the conflicts and features which can lead to accidents.
For other rural highways, consisting in the main of two-lane undivided roadways
which have been engineered through difficult, and sometimes torturous, terrain, the
possibility of an accident is considerably higher.
Research and studies over the last 10 years have concentrated on attempting
to define those features of roadway alignment and cross-section which increase the
degree of risk to the average driver, and to find ways of modifying those parts of
the roadway where the accident frequency is higher than average. Put at its
simplest, this means that accident "black spots" have to be identified, the problem
diagnosed, and remedial engineering action taken in the short and long term. In
British Columbia this has involved the treatment of compound curves to make them
more readily recognized by approaching drivers, in order that they can adjust their
speeds to suit the situation. Guardrail, roadside delineators, and traffic sign patterns have been used in these cases to provide positive guidance.
Design work has been initiated for the realignment of tight curves, particularly
where these follow straight high-speed sections. Left-turn slots are being added to
locations where rear-end and left-turning accidents have been high in frequency.
Work is under way to determine economically feasible treatments for upgrading
roadside verges and ditches, which in the present circumstances may cause vehicles
leaving the highway to roll over, leading to serious and fatal results. This problem
is particularly difficult in British Columbia because of the nature of the terrain and
solutions which are possible in the Prairie Provinces are often not available in
British Columbia because of topography or extremely high cost. A review of the
guardrail program is under way for increased application to roads in particularly
difficult terrain.
A study was made of international practice with regard to hard shoulder widths
needed to increase safety, and the Department has adopted a 2-metre standard to
be introduced on all main highways. On routes having high traffic volumes the
shoulders will be paved and on others a sealcoat treatment will be applied. The
"objective eventually is to eliminate the soft gravel shoulder from all higher speed
main highways.

 B 72
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
The problem of fixed objects and other hazards to drivers, who for some reason
or other leave the highway, is considerable and a start was made on the treatment
of such features on the Lower Mainland freeways. Several arrays of sand-filled
plastic tubs have been positioned in advance of concrete bridge piers in the medians
on Highways 1 and 99, which will have the effect of reducing the deceleration "G"
forces on the occupants of errant vehicles to tolerable human levels, preventing
their having fatal or serious impacts with the massive concrete features.
At the north end of Second Narrows Bridge and the Brunette off-ramp to New
Westminster, two water-cell cushion-impact attenuators were installed to absorb the
impact of vehicles which have been leaving the road at these locations. Again,
these impact attenuators absorb the energy of the vehicles, reducing the force on
the occupants to safe levels. One feature of these water-cell attenuators is that they
can be quickly reinstated to repeat their safety function, and they are also the first
to be installed in Canada.
Well over half of the large correspondence dealt with by the Branch relates to
concerns and requests from parents and others for better protection of schoolchildren while walking or cycling across the highway to and from school. While
certain protective action has been taken through the introduction of school speed
zones, pedestrian-operated traffic signals, and similar measures, the problem will
never be dealt with to the complete satisfaction of most parents of young children.
Public roads and highways are the most dangerous places in the Province and any
physical measure taken by the Department can only modify this in degree. Systematic training of school-children, from kindergarten through high school, in safe
traffic practices is the only long-term measure which will produce a marked benefit.
The use of adult crossing-guards and school patrols to supervise the crossing of
busy highways has produced the safe movement of young children to school, but
even this can lead to an avoidance of training the children to be cautious when using
the roads at other times.
Grade-separated crossings such as underpasses or overpasses are very expensive and have to be located very carefully if they are to be used by the children.
While they may be necessary for crossing freeways and congested urban arterials,
they are much more difficult to justify in lightly travelled rural highways. These
grade-separated crossings are now being incorporated in the design of new highways
in highly populated areas where schools are separted from the residential area by
the highway. The expense of doing this points to the necessity for the careful siting
of schools, and in particular elementary schools, when large residential subdivisions
are being planned.
In addition to the attention given to pedestrians and cyclists crossing highways,
work is also proceeding to improve the safety and convenience of nonvehicular
traffic using the road in the vicinity of schools by widening and treating shoulders.
The work of the Branch, while broad in scope, is as yet somewhat limited in
application, but this will increase in a short time as a more accurate understanding
of the road safety problems and feasible counter-measures is reached. A total of
$155,077 was spent in the fiscal year, most of the money going to the impact attenuators, with other funds being spent on underpasses and specific shoulder treatments.

HIGHWAY DISTRICT REPORTS
REGION 1
(P. J. Carr, Regional Highway Engineer, Burnaby)
North Vancouver, Gibsons, New Westminster, and Chilliwack Highway Districts
North Vancouver District
Roads
Maintenance—Spring break-up was somewhat less severe this year so pavement maintenance was generally of a routine nature, except in the Whistler area
where some major patching and intersection paving were undertaken. Shoulder
gravelling, particularly on Highway 99 between Horseshoe Bay and Squamish, was
a priority item as was brushing. All areas on this section of road requiring it were
machine-brushed to a distance of about 20 feet back from the shoulder edges.
Some shoulder widening was done on Highway 99 north of Brohm Lake. Also
extensive regravelling was undertaken on an 8-mile section of Squamish Valley
Road, and on several sections of Pemberton Portage Road. An extensive rock
scaling program was carried out this year on the bluffs along Garibaldi Highway 99,
between Horseshoe Bay and Britannia, which reduced the rock fall hazard to a
minimum. Extremely heavy fall rains resulted in many drainage problems throughout the district, such as blocked culverts, wash-outs, mud-slides, etc. The Squamish
River overflowed its banks and flooded Squamish Valley Road to a depth of several
feet in some areas for a period of about four days in November. Considerable
silting over the road occurred, which had to be graded off, and some shoulders were
washed out. On Trans-Canada Highway 1, through West Vancouver, numerous
creek channels required extensive cleaning of rocks and debris piled up against
trash racks. Winter snowfall was about average this year and few major problems
arose in snow-clearing operations.
Construction—Work continued this year on Highway 99 between Garibaldi
and Whistler, consisting primarily of widening and minor alignment improvements,
in preparation for eventual repaying. Construction and paving on new alignment
was completed on the White Creek section of Pemberton Portage Road. Also in
the Pemberton area, base strengthening and paving were completed on a 3-mile
section of Pemberton Meadows Road, and on Lillooet Lake Road extensive rip-
rapping was done to combat erosion that was threatening the road in a number of
areas. On Garibaldi Highway 99, at Suicide Hill south of Pemberton, the first phase
of slope stabilization was completed. This is a continuing project oriented to reducing the hazard of rock fall onto the road by slope stabilization utilizing shotcrete
and the creation of catchment areas to contain the slough from the unstabilized
slope sections. In the Squamish area, much of the work was completed on the
alignment changes and approach fills for the proposed bridge over the Mamquam
River to replace the existing structure. This year an extensive paving program was
carried out on Bowen Island; 5 miles of gravel road was surfaced utilizing the
Department's mixing plant to produce the asphalt. Also on Bowen Island, work
continued on the reconstruction of Eagle Cliff Road. This is a difficult project
involving extensive rock blasting in close proximity to homes.
 B 84
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
Bridges
Damage to Mashiter and Mamquam Bridges in the Squamish area resulted from
heavy logs and debris colliding with and jamming against the structures. On Garibaldi Highway 99 north of Horseshoe Bay, Harvey Creek Bridge, Newman Creek
Bridge, and "M" Bridge were stripped of their deteriorated asphalt surfaces and the
laminated decks were patched, renailed, and a new asphalt surface applied. A number of other bridges in the district were redecked and flood damage repairs were
made on Mashiter and Mamquam Bridges, where pilings were broken during high
water in November. On Garibaldi Highway 99 at Brandywine Creek, a temporary
Bailey bridge was installed adjacent to the existing Bailey to provide for two-way
traffic. A new structure is planned for this site.
Ferries
Woodfibre ferry-landing received normal maintenance.
Buildings
A temporary water system was installed and washroom facilities were provided
for the Bowen Island maintenance establishment. Drilling was started on a permanent deep well. No major work was done on the other facilities in the district
this year.
Gibsons District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance for the summer and winter was routine
with very few problems. Snowfall for the past year was again less than average
and no problems were incurred by spring flooding.
Construction—Major day labour consisted of the reconstruction of 1 mile on
Highway 101 at Sechelt, installation of underground drainage on the Gibsons
Arterial Highway, erosion control on Kearton Road, and reconstruction of 2.3
miles of side roads.
Bridges
Camp Bridge was reconstructed and Port Mellon 2 and Port Mellon 5 Bridges
were completed.
Buildings
New offices have been leased; however, all financial matters are still handled
through the North Vancouver District Office.
New Westminster Highways District
Roads
Maintenance—Normal maintenance was carried out on all highways throughout the district with a high percentage of time being spent on hand-patching, re-
gravelling and grading of shoulders; ditch and catch basin cleaning, mowing and
brushing along Highways 1 and 99, road surface cleaning, especially on the major
structures such as Knight Street, Oak Street, and Port Mann Bridges. Extra auxiliary employees were taken on to carry out a continuing program of weeding and
landscaping of Knight Street Bridge Interchange.
Construction—Continuation of the grade preparation on Westminster Highway
from Knight Street to No. 5 Road was carried out by day labour.   New entrances
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 85
were constructed to the Burnaby, Oak, and Cloverdale yards to facilitate safer
traffic movement. A stone wall was erected on King George VI Highway at Highway 1a to stabilize the bank and protect the pedestrian sidewalk. Right-turn lanes
were built at Beach Avenue and Highway 99, 16th Avenue and Pacific Highway,
240th and Lougheed Highway, and Kensington Avenue at Canada Way.
Intersection improvements were carried out at Scott Road and King George VI
Highway, Bedwell Bay Road and Sunnyside Road, Highway 10 at King George VI
Highway and Kittson Road.
Traffic signals and lighting were installed at Highway 7 at Burnett Street,
Highway 1a at Highway 15, 88th Avenue and McBurney Lane.
Speed-detection devices are being installed on Highway 10 at Cloverdale, and
Aldergrove, also one on Glover Road in Langley.
New, improved lighting was completed in Massey Tunnel.
A number of safety projects were completed with the fabrication of catch basin
covers for the sidewalk on Highway 7 in Haney, the installation of an impact
attenuator on Highway 1 at the Brunette off-ramp, with inertial barriers being
placed at a number of structures on Highway 1 and Highway 99; concrete medium
barrier was placed on Highway 1 between Cape Horn to Port Mann Bridge, and at
Grandview Highway.
Bridges
Major redecking and pier protection were completed on Canoe Pass Bridge,
jacking was successfully undertaken on the south approach of Livingstone Overpass and Roger Pierlet Bridge. Considerable time was spent by the bridge crew on
concrete deck and damage repairs.
Buildings
A new fuel house was constructed in the Oak Street yard.
A new tender's building was provided at Canoe Pass Bridge.
A 40-foot office trailer was provided for the senior road foremen in the
Cloverdale yard.
Ferries
Both ferries operated on schedule, except for minor interruptions caused by
mechanical problems. Landing protection boom was installed and dredging undertaken on the McMillan Island end of the Albion Ferry Service.
Chilliwack District
Roads
Maintenance—District roads were maintained to a good standard. Brushing
was carried out as required and mowers operated throughout the growing season.
Litter was cleaned up daily during the summer, and as necessary for the rest of the
year. Fifteen miles of gravel road were treated with oil for dust control. Extremely
heavy rainfall during December resulted in several road washouts, bridge washouts,
slides, and flooding problems throughout the district. Repairs were carried out as
quickly as possible.
Construction—Construction of roadways and landscaping for the Bradner
Road Rest Area were completed. District crews regravelled about 6 miles of
gravel road and 1.13 miles of new gravel road were constructed. The District
constructed 0.3 mile of Trans-Canada frontage road to crush grade in the Abbotsford area.   Sylvester Road was reconstructed for a distance of 0.68 mile.
 B 86 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
Surfacing—District crews paved Sylvester Road (0.68 mile), Hodgkins Road
(1.13 miles), and Popkum Road (0.45 mile). Rockwell Drive was recapped for
1 mile and Columbia Valley Road was recapped for 1 mile.
Snow removal—Snowfall was below average. District roads were sanded and
ploughed when required, and were kept in good condition.
Bridges
The district bridge crew reconstructed five bridges and one 18-foot box
culvert. A 45-foot glue-laminated beam span was reconstructed on Legace Creek
3 Bridge on Farms Road. A 26-foot stringer span was reconstructed on Green-
point Bridge on Rockwell Drive. A 22-foot stringer span was reconstructed on
McKay Bridge on McKay Road. Two bridges and the box culvert were washed
out by flooding and were reconstructed by the district bridge crew. On Columbia
Valley Highway, a 40-foot stringer span was reconstructed on Watt Creek Bridge.
A 40-foot stringer span was reconstructed on Hemlock Valley 4 Bridge on Hemlock
Valley Road, and an 18-foot box culvert was constructed on Carratt Road.
REGION 2
(R. G. White, Regional Highway Engineer, Kamloops)
Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Vernon, Penticton, Merritt, Lillooet, 100 Mile House,
Williams Lake, and Kelowna Highway Districts
Kamloops District
Roads
Maintenance—Regular maintenance was carried out on all highways in the
district with an increased demand for patching for 5 miles on Trans-Canada Highway 1 and 9 miles on Yellowhead South Highway 5, Barriere area, and 4 miles on
Kamloops-Merritt Highway 5 due to a severe spring break-up. On seven major
country roads, increased subdivision activity added a considerable amount of
traffic, including more and larger school buses, demanded improvements to alignment, grade, drainage, and surface quality.
A major washout and landslip on Agate Bay Road required extensive repair.
Several miles of ditching and installation of over 100 culverts were done in the
Pinantan area to relieve run-off problems.
Construction—Four miles were reconstructed on Dunn Lake Road within
the Chu-Chua Indian Reserve. Many dangerous rock corners were blasted on
Agate Bay Road along Forest Lake. There were no funds available for larger
projects.
Bridges
All bridges were inspected and maintenance work carried out where necessary.
Extensive repairs were done on Birch Island Bridge to the amount of $65,000.
Criss Creek and Tranquille Bridges were reconstructed. McCracken Bridge was
eliminated.
Ferries
Frequent freezing and thawing conditions of the North Thompson River made
it necessary to put the Little Fort reaction ferry in service and pull it on land again
until steady service could commence for both ferries after the spring thaw.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 87
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance—Normal maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads in the district. Dust control was extensively increased from 31.1 miles in
1974/75 to 65.7 miles in 1975/76. Pavement patching was again a major item
of maintenance due to deterioration of road surfaces, especially Highway 97 from
Pinaus Lake Road to Schwebs Bridge. Other work included 2.7 miles of side
roads recapped, 8.2 miles of roadmix, and 2.4 miles of sealcoating laid. There was
no serious flooding, except some heavy debris problems with Sicamous Bridge over
the Eagle River, and flooding of Ross Creek required replacement of Ross Creek
Bridge on Squilax-Anglemont Road.
Construction—12.5 miles of side road were reconstructed to a standard in
preparation for paving on the following:
Miles
Sorrento-Eagle Bay Road ____ 2.3
Chase-Falkland Road  2.6
White Lake Road   1.2
Bolton Road  1.3
Martin Prairie Road   0.4
Sunnybrae-Canoe Point
Road  0.3
Sicamous streets  4.4
Also, the shoulders were widened to 10 feet in preparation for repaving on
5.9 miles of Highway 97 from Falkland to Pinaus Lake.
Trans-Canada Highway was reconstructed for 0.2 mile due to a landslide at
Chase Overhead.
Snow removal—Normal snow conditions prevailed throughout the district.
All main routes and side roads were kept open and good driving conditions prevailed. Cost per mile has shown a marked increase due to the increased use of
salt and the new costing used in the maintenance management program.
Bridges
General maintenance was carried out on all bridges and five bridges were
reconstructed, namely, Ross Creek, Sicamous, Karjula, Mattey, and Johnson
Bridges.
A change in the Salmon Arm District and the Merritt District was made on
Douglas Lake Road, adding 5.2 miles and one bridge to the Salmon Arm District
Road and Bridge Register.
During the year the maintenance management program was introduced and is
progressing as planned.
Vernon District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads,
with minor improvements on side roads continuing. A late spring and generally
wetter-than-average summer helped to keep side roads in good condition, thus
lessening the demand for dust palliatives. Heavy summer volumes caused increased shoulder maintenance on trunk highways.
Two new major shopping centres in the City of Vernon resulted in the
upgrading of Highway 6 east of Poison Park to Kal Lake Road, and on Highway
97 north of 48th Avenue to handle the increased traffic movement.
Subdivision activity in the Vernon Highway District remained constant. The
Vernon office processed 199 tentative subdivisions, 139 final subdivisions, 14 land
 B 88
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
use contracts, 57 rezoning applications, and 630 permits were issued for work on
Crown land. This spring showed a heavy increase in home construction, especially
in the Vernon subregion.
The roadside development plant in Vernon operated by the District produced
1,600 feet of new 27" no-post guardrail, including transition and terminal sections.
68 standard bases for street lights and signals were manufactured for the Regional
Electrical Branch, and 52 terrazzo-finished concrete picnic tables and 22 toilets
were produced for shipment to various roadside rest stops in the Province.
Construction—Clearing and grubbing on the remaining 4-mile section of
Enderby-Mabel Lake Road were carried out. Reconstruction of Sugar Lake
Road, commencing off Vernon-Slocan Highway 6 via Cherry Creek to Aumond
Road, was completed. Surveys and right-of-way acquisitions were completed
along the 11-mile route to Sugar Lake. Two miles of Gardom Lake Road, north
of Enderby, were reconstructed and gravelled, and the remaining right-of-way was
acquired. Three miles of Riverside Road at Mara were reconstructed and gravelled
and prepared for paving. Two and one-half miles of Westside Road were widened,
ditched, and gravelled between Killiney Beach and Fintry Delta on Okanagan
Lake. Herry Road, serving Bryden Subdivision in North B.X. District, was
reconstructed and gravelled in preparation for a paving contract.
Surfacing—Several subdivision roads in the Vernon subregion were paved
with hotmix asphalt by contract, totalling 1.42 miles, including access to the Rainbow and Blue Jay Subdivisions. Hickman and Dixon Dam Roads, which provide
access to Tillicum Valley Recreation Area near Vernon, were paved with pre-
mixed asphalt. A total of 3.9 miles of paving utilizing pre-mixed asphalt was
carried out on Deep Creek, Fortune, and Canyon Roads in the Enderby area.
Snow removal—Demand for winter maintenance was again heavy, brought
about by four cold weather and thawing cycles which caused severe pavement
damage and pothole problems throughout the district. The demand for salt was
heavy. Silver Star Mountain and Monashee Pass areas received above normal
snowfalls.
Bridges
District bridges were inspected and maintained as required. Shuswap River
Bridge over the Shuswap River on Lumby-Mabel Lake Road was redecked and
paved. Endall Bridge on Headgates Road was reconstructed. Materials to replace
the Coalgoat and Mclntyre Bridges on Vernon-Slocan Highway 6 were provided.
The prestressed-concrete box-stringers for the new Cherryville Bridge on North
Fork Road were purchased.
Penticton District
Roads
Maintenance—Ditching and shouldering operations were above normal during
the spring and fall. Desirable objectives were not attained due to a high incidence
of pavement patching and repairs. Extensive hand-patching was a year-round
activity due to frost damage and deterioration of old pavement on Highway 3. This
work was carried out during the milder winter periods as well as the late spring
of 1976 when special patching efforts were undertaken between Keremeos and
Hedley.
Dry conditions in spring and summer resulted in dust control covering 78
miles of orchard and gravel roads.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 89
Snowfall and icing conditions were not particularly extreme, but crews were
kept busy with rock and ditch clean-up during mild periods. Abrasive and chemical
usage was above average.
Construction—Further improvements on the Hope-Princeton Highway were
achieved and the final lift of pavement on 13 miles of reconstructed four-lane grade
was carried out by contract. District crews commenced work on an additional 6
miles and assisted in stream improvements on behalf of the bridge branch contract
for widening the three Cambie Bridges.
Minor construction entailed 2 miles in Princeton area, 1.5 miles in Keremeos,
7.5 miles in Penticton, and 6 miles in the Oliver area. During the year a total of
16 miles of local roads were upgraded by district forces.
Bridges
There were no flooding or high-water conditions of significance and the bridge
crew were able to devote more time to maintenance requirements and replacements
and improvement of minor bridges, including Wicks, Sharpes, Manery, Barcello,
Copaka, and Shingle Creek Bridges. Remedial and construction work was carried
out on behalf of Kelowna District.
A variable message sign at Princeton and construction of abutments for Allison
Creek Bridge on Highway 5 were the construction activity.
Paul Creek Railway covered bridge was partially removed to alleviate a collapse and possible damage downstream on the Similkameen River. This bridge
was extensively damaged during the floods of 1972 and 1974.
Okanagan Flood Control
The district engaged in routine maintenance and repair of the flood control
facilities.
Merrit District
Roads
Maintenance—Heavy rains in December produced severe flood damage to
Trans-Canada Highway 1 and many side roads in the Hope area, requiring fairly
costly repairs. Otherwise, the maintenance requirement was average in all areas,
with extra emphasis being given to gravelling side roads in the Merritt, Coalmont,
and Logan Lake areas. Sign maintenance and curve delineators were given special
attention and this program will continue.
Considerable rock scaling was carried out through the Fraser Canyon to minimize rock fall and 500 feet of gabion rock was installed to reduce the danger from
falling rocks. The Alexander Bridge to Boston Bar section of Trans-Canada Highway 1 proved a severe pavement-patching problem during the winter and early
spring. A major machine-brushing program was carried out betweeen Hope and
Lytton.
Snowfall was generally below average, but frequent minor falls and icing
still produced a high sand and chemical requirement.
During the year a District Technician—Avalanche Co-ordinator was added
to the staff at Hope and a Maintenance Management Co-ordinator added in
Merritt.
Construction—Ten miles of pulvimix paving were completed on Merritt-
Spences Bridge Highway 8, along with 7 miles on Coldwater Road and 4 miles on
Douglas Lake Road. In addition, a number of subdivision streets in Merritt area
were pulvimixed to reduce a chronic maintenance requirement.
 B 90 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
Six miles of Highland Valley Road were upgraded and 4.5 miles of this were
pulvimixed.    Slide repairs were also carried out between Miles 1.0 to 2.3.
Minor rock work to improve visibility was undertaken on several sections of
Merritt-Spences Bridge Highway 8.
Bridges
Two new bridges were constructed on Silver Skagit Road, the first a 110-foot-
long widened double-single Bailey at Skagit Bridge, replacing an old log-stringer
bridge, and, secondly, a new Eureka Creek Bridge was installed, necessitated by
the extensive flood damage in December.
Extensive work was carried on a stream-bed protection and riprapping for
Nicoman Creek Bridge on Trans-Canada Highway 1, undertaken co-operatively
with the CPR.
Ferries
The North Bend aerial ferry upgrading program was completed and minor
repairs were carried out on Lytton reaction ferry.
Lillooet District
Roads
Maintenance—A comprehensive maintenance program was carried out
throughout the year.
In the Lillooet area, Lillooet-Pioneer Road 40 being widened, was regraded
with minor realignment over some 6 miles.
Both the Lytton to Lillooet and the Lillooet to Cache Creek sections of
Highway 12 had banks cut back and reditching along some precipitous sections.
Cleaning of catch roads, with upgrading and brushing of side roads, kept the
Goldbridge to Bralorne area crews busy.
In the Clinton area, brushing, along with straightening and ditching of many
side roads, was carried out, fairly deep ditching and higher crowning of many side
roads has proved successful in the Clinton Area, particularly in mud and silt areas.
Ashcroft area crews brushed out and reditched Upper Hat Creek Road as
well as Loon Lake Road. Local connecting roads were upgraded in and around
Cache Creek.
Construction—Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway 12 was reconstructed over a
new route for some 3 miles through Indian reserves, thus facilitating a straighter
alignment and creation of larger field areas.
Approximately 1 mile of new road rebuilding was undertaken on the east side
of Gun Lake with some 20 acres of right-of-way being cleared, the ultimate aim
being a perimeter road around Gun Lake.
In the Clinton area, 3 miles of Green Lake Road were rebuilt, from the
Flying U guest ranch to the Lone Butte turn-off. A further 3 miles of Mound
Loon Lake Road were rebuilt, along with 1 mile of Chasm Road, thus providing
better site distances over the B.C. Railway crossings.
Surfacing—3 to 8 miles of new construction were paved on Lillooet-Cache
Creek Road.
Snow removal—Snow amounts were roughly half the usual amount over
most of Lillooet District, roads were kept in good winter condition, and chemicals
were a help on trunk and main routes under these conditions.
Bridge River Road was closed for one night due to icing conditions.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 91
Ferries
The reaction ferry at Big Bar was in service throughout the summer months,
it being much patronized by ranchers and hunters. During the winter season the
ferry is beached, due to ice in the Fraser River, with a cage being used for
passenger service only.
Bridges .
A 60-foot span bridge was built over the Bonaparte River to replace the old
Harper Mill Bridge at Ashcroft. Dunlop Bridge over Seton Creek was strengthened
by having four 60-foot steel beams put in place of the original log stringers. This
bridge is located 3 miles east of Lillooet on Seton Lake Road and handles heavy
logging traffic from the Duffy Lake area.
100 Mile House District
Roads
Maintenance—Normal maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads throughout the district. There was an about average snowfall this winter
with the major portion falling between mid-November and mid-December. A
seven-day, 24-hour shift system was utilized in the 100 Mile House foreman area.
A dust-control program was carried out in the district with approximately 25
miles of road receiving a dust palliative.
An additional 14 miles of Cariboo Highway was fenced through Crown
lands, completing the fencing south of 100 Mile House with the exception of three
spot areas.
Extensive culvert installations, ditching, and brushing were carried out on
many side roads.
Vandalism continues to be a problem with signs, requiring constant replacing
and repair, also increased traffic volume required more time on litter pick-up.
Subdivisions continue steady with 143 subdivisions, 370 permits, 31 zoning
and land use contracts being processed.
Construction—Major reconstruction and gravelling were carried out on 3.3
miles of Highway 24 to 93 Mile to Little Fort and 1.25 miles on Horse Lake Road
under a day labour program. On Caverly Road, 1.45 miles were reconstructed
and gravelled and 6.6 miles of ditching and gravelling were carried out on Bradley
Creek, Canim Lake, Eagle Creek, Bridge Lake North, and Mahood Lake Roads
under the Minor Betterments Program. Truck lanes on the 103, 106, 108, and
111 Mile hills, on Cariboo Highway 97, were completed for paving in the forthcoming year. Shouldering for 20 miles on Cariboo Highway 97, south of 100
Mile House, was completed. Sealcoating of Cariboo Highway 97 commenced in
August and due to inclement weather was not completed; however, it should be
completed during the summer of 1976. Paving of 10.2 miles of Cariboo Highway
97, north of Lac la Hache, was completed by contract, 6.9 miles of Highway 24
to 93 Mile to Little Fort was sealcoated, and 0.75 mile of 103 Subdivision Road
was paved with hotmix.
Bridges
Four timber bridges were replaced—Dempsey Bridge on Spring Lake Road,
Dempsey Bridge 2 on Dempsey Lake South Road, Gustafson Bridge on Buffalo
Creek Road, and Mercer Bridge on Mercer Road. Major repairs were carried out
on Jim Creek Bridge on Mahood Lake Road. Minor repairs were carried out on
several other timber bridges.

Williams Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—The spring of 1975 was long and cool with minimal flooding
and washout problems except in the Bella Coola area where considerable channel
deposit resulted in larger creeks such as Thorsen and Nookliklonnik. We cooperated with the Water Resources Branch in cleaning out these channels. Several
hundred feet of riprap were required, too, along the Bella Coola River west of
Firvale.
Pavement patching was rather extensive as the failing pulvimix sections
required much attention as a result of the heavy log-hauling operations around
and into the Town of Williams Lake.
Williams Lake Highways District grew smaller this year as the road foreman
areas of Bridge Lake and 100 Mile were formed into a new 100 Mile Highways
District with transfer of control of roads in those areas from Williams Lake to the
100 Mile District office.
There were increases in the amounts of dust layer required to satisfy residents
on dusty roads, and further increases in time allotted to pick up litter along roadsides and slashing of brush, since chemicals are not being used.
Many travel hours were eliminated, too, since more mobile radios were
supplied this year to almost fully equip vehicles.
Heavy snowfalls experienced in the Anahim Lake to Bella Coola Mountain
section of Highway 20 in November will long be remembered by residents and also
our Departmental workmen as many long days and nights were required to clear
roads of snow. Thirty-inch snowfalls were common. Two in a row produced 60
inches in 24 hours on top of 40 inches not yet ploughed. Seven bulldozers and a
snowblower were required to unplug the roads as lighter equipment could not cope
with so much snow. The total snowfall recorded at the summit of the mountain
during the winter was 1 074 cm. Thirty-nine avalanches were recorded on the
road down the mountain and at the section of road near the docks at Bella Coola.
Construction—Major construction projects were carried out on the Chilcotin—
Bella Coola Highway 20 and Redstone to Chezacut, Christensen, Morrison Meadow, and Moon branch roads. Reconstruction took place on Likely and Dog
Creek Roads as well.   The district total was 23.7 miles.
Bridges
The bridge construction program included the construction of six new bridges,
namely, McLellan, King, Green River, Clesspocket, Holtry, and Likely. Bridge
repairs were carried out on 19 other bridges throughout the district. Washing and
cleaning were completed on all concrete and steel structures as well. Among the
miscellaneous items completed by the bridge crew during the year was a new salt
storage shed in our Williams Lake Yard.
Kelowna District
Roads
Maintenance—The district was once again maintaining all roads within the
new area of the City of Kelowna. Many residents are still complaining about the
lack of service, especially street sweeping and drainage. All complaints are
investigated and appropriate action taken.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 93
In Kelowna District, approximately 36 miles of road received an application
of a dust palliative.
Flooding was not a problem in the district; however, considerable work was
done on Mission and McDougal Creeks under the direction of the Water Rights
Branch who also paid for this work.
Construction—Several district roads were either reconstructed or improved
during the past year. Reconstruction was continued on the Westside Road and
approximately 1.7 miles were reconstructed and paved with a coldmix asphalt. At
McCulloch Road (within the new City of Kelowna), 1.9 miles were improved and
sealcoated, and 1.3 miles of Anderson Road were reconstructed, ready for paving
the following year. In total, approximately 12 miles of district roads were improved. Construction and paving were completed on Springfield-Cunningham
Road.  This road is part of the grid system for the City of Kelowna.
Street lighting on the median of Highway 97 between Benvoulin Road and
Highway 33 was started late in the year and will be completed in 1976.
Snow removal—An average snowfall was experienced during the past year
and all district roads were kept in good winter condition. In general, very few
complaints were received this year regarding our winter maintenance program.
Bridges
Routine bridge maintenance was carried out throughout the district and the
new bridges on Highway 33 over Belgo and Mission Creeks were completed.
Belgo Creek was constructed by district forces, whereas the Mission Creek Bridge
was under contract.
REGION 3
(W. M. Sproul, Regional Highway Engineer, Nelson)
Nelson, Rossland, Grand Forks, New Denver, Cranbrook, Fernie, Golden,
Revelstoke, and Creston Highway Districts
Nelson District
Roads
Maintenance—Spring run-off was moderate and no severe flooding occurred.
Crews were busy screening and mixing sand throughout the summer. Dust control
was again carried out on many side roads, using M.C. asphalt or liquid calcium
chloride. Four miles of existing pavement were sandsealed and 0.6 mile of secondary road was roadmixed. Winter snowfall was moderate and roads were well
maintained. Considerable effort went into the training and implementation of
reporting to the maintenance management system.
Construction—Reconstruction of the existing logging-road serving the Whitewater Ski Hill continued, with approximately 1.5 miles being completed to sub-
grade. The completion of construction and roadmixing was carried out on 2.1
miles of Highway 6 in several sections between South Slocan and Lemon Creek.
In addition, 0.40 mile of Highway 6 at Passmore was reconstructed to gravel grade
on new alignment. Work was 50 per cent completed on one-half mile of widening
on Highway 3a, Nelson to Balfour and 3 miles of shoulder-widening were carried
out on Highway 6 south of Salmo. Reconstruction of three-quarters of a mile of
Pass Creek Road was completed; 0.6 mile of Sproule Creek Road was recon-
 B 94 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
structed and paved, and improvements carried out to an additional 0.2 mile; 0.5
mile of road was opened.
Bridges
New log-stringer bridges were constructed over Goose Creek on Pass Creek
Road, Sproule Creek on Barbanoff Road, and Apex Creek on Whitewater Ski Hill
access. The existing bridge over Redfish Creek on Highway 3a was widened and
a concrete deck constructed.
Ferries
Glade, Harrop to Longbeach, and Kootenay Lake ferries ran throughout the
year. During the summer months two ferries operated on Kootenay Lake to
accommodate traffic.
Rossland District
Roads
Maintenance—Rossland Highways District experienced a relatively quiet year.
As a result of thawing weather and rain during December, our accumulation
of snow was less than usual although the snowfall recorded was average. The mild
winter with near zero temperatures required an additional quantity of sand to
ensure safety through the rapid freeze-thaw cycles.
The summer months were spent on routine road maintenance, with emphasis
being placed on drainage facilities and the repair of winter road damage.
All foremen in the district completed Level II of the Maintenance Management Training Program. The Maintenance Management Program has been accepted as we begin to realize the valuable information available from the system.
Due to the activity from the construction of Seven Mile Dam on the Pend-
D'Oreille River, we had a noticeable permit and subdivision work load increase.
Construction—In conjunction with the Headquarters' pulvimix crew, we were
able to roadmix 9 miles of road in the Castlegar area. With our regular crew, we
paved 3 miles of road in the Fruitvale and Genelle areas, using both hotmix and
roadmix pavements.
We manufactured 12,200 lineal feet of 27-inch no-post guardrail. Of this
total, 2,800 lineal feet were erected at various locations throughout the districts
and varying footage allotted to adjoining districts.
Bridges
The district bridge crew replaced two minor timber bridges in the district.
Damage to permanent bridge fence panels was high this year and many hours
were spent in repair. Other bridge work consisted of replacing wood handrails
with flex-beam guardrail.
Ferries
The Castlegar ferry was outfitted with a new power unit, wiring, and heating
system. The ferry ramps gave considerable trouble with the high and sudden
changes in the water-levels due to operational requirements of the Hugh Keenly-
side Dam.    Hopefully our solution to hold the ferry ramps in place is a success.
Buildings
Our bridge crew, with their little spare time available, was able to construct
the foundations of our no-post guardrail manufacturing building.
 REGIONAL REPORTS B 95
Grand Forks District
Roads
Maintenance—The district continued its intensive right-of-way landscaping
program, mainly in the Greenwood-Eholt area. As a result, visibility and drainage
were improved at many locations.
Extensive patching was required on Highway 3 east of Grand Forks as well
as on Highway 33 south of Beaverdell. The shoulder-widening program on Highway 33 was continued through the spring and fall.
Various roads throughout the district were upgraded. Three miles of road in
the area south of Grand Forks and at Christina Lake were reconstructed and
gravelled, while brushing, widening, and gravelling were carried out on 2 miles of
road in the Rock Creek area.
A record rainstorm on July 7, which saw three-quarters of an inch of rain
fall in a 20-minute period and 1.9 inches in three hours, caused considerable
damage to roads south of Grand Forks, as well as adjacent properties. However,
all roads were repaired in short order.
Snowfall during the winter was near normal with the district crews maintaining all roads to a very good standard.
Construction—Reconstruction and gravelling were completed on 2.7 miles of
Granby Road north of Grand Forks. On Jewel Lake Road, 1 mile of road was
reconstructed and a crusher was engaged to provide the district with sufficient
three-quarter-inch crush to apply to the entire road.
Headquarters crews applied shoulder treatment to 5 miles of Highway 3
between Rock Creek and Ingram Bridge in addition to 11.7 miles between Greenwood and Phoenix junction.
Bridges
The relocated Carmi Bridge on Highway 33 was completed and the approaches paved. District crews were engaged in painting the railings on a number
of bridges. In some cases the railings were removed, sandblasted, painted, and
replaced.
Decking and structural members on various bridges were replaced. Carson
Bridge, which was constructed in 1922, was closed pending a detailed inspection
by the Bridge Branch.
The design has been completed for the new Westbridge Bridge with construction proposed for the 1976/77 fiscal year. However, a firm program has not
been established.
New Denver District
Roads
Maintenance—The district had a normal maintenance program through the
past year. The spring run-off was average and caused very little damage to the
road system. Fill failures at Mirror Lake on Highway 31 and near Fauquier on
Highway 6 were repaired. A combination of a light snowfall and new equipment
allowed district forces to provide a good level of service to the public during the
winter months.
Construction—Approximately 3.5 miles of the Monashee section of Highway
6 were reconstructed in preparation for paving in 1976/77.    In addition, 6 miles
 B 96 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
of Highway 31a were upgraded by district forces and pulvimixed by the Paving
Branch.
Approximately 17 miles of plantmix asphalt were grader-laid by Paving
Branch forces on Highway 31 north of Kaslo.
Bridges
The new St. Leon Creek Bridge was opened to traffic in September. The
district bridge crew constructed Brouse Upper and Zeleznik Bridges over Seaton,
Whitewater, Lyle, and Bear Creeks. Major repairs were carried out on the 10
other bridges within the district.
Buildings
A new shop, including a four-bay equipment shed, an assembly room, and a
foreman's office, was completed for Kaslo. The bridge crew constructed a residence
for the Head Ferryman at Arrow Park.
Ferries
Both Needles and Arrow Park ferries maintained their schedules with very
little interruption for the travelling public.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance—Normal maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads in the district.
Considerable clearing and brushing were done in Cranbrook and Kimberley
areas under the Student Employment Program.
Run-off in the spring of 1975 was normal and only a few minor problems were
encountered with log jams on the main rivers.
Construction—New construction on South Cranbrook streets amounted to 0.80
miles, while major improvement was undertaken on 1.4 miles; 5.5 miles of road
were paved and over 5 miles were flushcoated. Also, 18 miles of road received a
liquid calcium stabilization treatment.
Snow removal—Snowfall was below normal at the lower levels during the
winter of 1975/76. Shift systems kept all roads open and in good condition throughout the winter.
Bridges
St Mary's River Mission Bridge was redecked and some minor repairs were
made.
The bridge crew spent the majority of the year working in the Fernie Highways
District.
Fernie District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads, as
necessary to maintain them in satisfactory condition. Pavement patching on most
sections was normal, except for Elk Valley Road 4, Sparwood to Elkford, and a few
sections on Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 3, Elko to Wardner and on Roose-
ville-Elko Highway 93 south of Grasmere; some brushing by students and auxiliary
employees was also carried out.    Oiling in front of residences, as necessary, with
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 97
M-F road stabilizer and M.C.O. asphalt was done. The works of continuous
maintenance, replacement of signs, and delineator posts was conducted. All culverts
were checked and cleaned as necessary as was placement of sand bags and cement
on ends of culverts to prevent scour or washing. On the Elk River west of Fernie,
rock riprap was placed. Improvements were undertaken on Jaffray-Baynes Lake
Road 9, north and south ends. Jaffray-Village Loop Road 22, Tie Lake Road,
Elko-Grasmere Road 6, and Grasmere-Dorr Roads 61 had part of length with
crushed gravel and three coats of inverted prime placed. Gravelling was done on
Cokato Road 28 and lower Elk Valley Road. There was considerable more frost
heaving on roads.
Flooding in rivers and streams caused some damage and repair work, with
erosion of banks along the Elk River in a number of places. Other work included
dike repairs on the Elk River in north Fernie, considerable gravel wash in creeks,
landscaping in pits, and planting trees.
Snow removal—There was average to below average snowfall throughout the
district, light during fall and early new year, with some precipitation on most days
but heavy fall in late February and March. Temperatures were above normal most
of winter. Snow-ploughing was lighter, but considerable chemical salt and salt
were used to provide a good driving surface. On November 1 until March 31,
winter shifts around the clock started in Fernie and Jaffray areas seven days a week,
and in Sparwood area with two shifts seven days a week. Crews screened and
prepared 30,000 yards of sand with salt at Tunnel, Elko, and Nonsoon pits.
Construction—Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 3 was shoulder-widened
and raised, ditch and gravel 1 to 6 miles Jaffray west to Wardner, and 3.0 miles
Junction No. 2 Road Elko west to Galloway. Elk Valley Road 4 was generally
widened with clearing, culvert and ditching improvements, also 2.0 miles were
gravelled. The section from the Michel Prairie Bridge north was reconstructed for
0.5 mile. The weigh-scale area on Kikomen-Newgate Road 36 was surveyed and
cleared.
Bridges
Work consisted of minor repairs and maintenance, as necessary, such as deck
washing, painting, etc., assisting bridge resurfacing crew on Alexander, Fairy Creek,
Lizard, North Fernie Bridges and place and remove approach fills and Bailey
Bridge for Hosmer Bridge for complete new deck replacements by contract. It was
necessary to place rock riprap pad and fill to protect approaches on Gold Creek
Bridge and to assist Cranbrook bridge crew on major changes to this bridge.
Damage repairs to bridges were required due to vehicle accidents.
Buildings
New Sparwood garage, equipment and materials storage, and oil house was
completed and occupied in August 1975. New Fernie garage, storage sheds, oil
house, and pump house were completed in November 1975 and moved into. The
storage shed at Elko sand pit was completed. Additional lighting was placed in
Jaffray yard and a salt silo started.
Golden District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all roads. Frost heaves
were heavy on Kootenay-Columbia Highways 93 and 95, more especially between
Parson and Brisco, a distance of 25 miles.
 B 98
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
Rock and dirt fall was fairly heavy in the Yoho Canyon section of Trans-
Canada Highway 1, necessitating major ditching. A large number of boulders had
to be drilled and blasted in the ditch lines prior to removal.
A fairly heavy program of surface treatment with liquid calcium chloride was
carried out on some side roads with varying degrees of success—from excellent
where the road base was finished with three-quarter-inch minus crushed gravel and
tight bladed, to only fair where the base was pit-run gravel.
DeGrazie Creek, 29 miles south of Golden, overflowed its banks due to blockage by debris from logging operations which had backed up water to form a small
lake which then eventually broke through during a heavy rain storm, creating a
dam at a small private bridge-site. Arnold Road was heavily damaged and Kootenay Columbia Highway 95 endangered. The channel was cleared and the road
restored.
No-post guardrail was replaced on Trans-Canada Highway 1 west of Golden.
Some access streets at Radium were roadmixed, as were some side roads, and
0.6 mile of Anderson Road north of Golden was paved with hotmix asphalt.
A critical horizontal and vertical alignment was corrected 1 mile north of
Golden on Golden-Donald Upper Road.
A large number of new culverts were installed on side roads in conjunction
with regravelling projects.
Construction—Trans-Canada Highway 1 was widened at both intersections
with Golden View Road in preparation for repaving and channelization.
A large cut on the southerly side of Trans-Canada Highway 1 facing the new
Provincial Information Centre is being removed to provide an unobstructed view of
Columbia Valley to the south. This is being done in conjunction with sand screening operations, etc.
Extensive landscaping was commenced north of Golden on Trans-Canada
Highway 1. Topsoil, consisting of a sawdust and sand mixture, was hauled and
placed on the median strips between the service roads and the main highway.
Guardrail was removed or moved east of Golden to enable paving of the
shoulders. In the critical areas this will be replaced with the new 27-inch no-post
type.
Shoulders on Kootenay-Columbia Highway 95 were widened from as little as
1 foot in width to a standard of 8 feet from north of Parson to north of Spillima-
cheen, for a distance of 16.5 miles.
Four miles of Toby Creek were paved with roadmix asphalt.
Snow removal—Sand screening operations were commenced early in May and
continued through September.
A 24-hour shift system was put into effect early in November in the Golden
foreman area. As the winter conditions in the Athalmer area are not so severe,
a two-shift system was employed there. The triple-shift system worked well, providing constant coverage with little or no overtime.
Snowfall depth was comparatively light, approximately one third that of the
previous winter, but storms were frequent. There were also frequent thawing and
freezing cycles which necessitated constant attention due to icing.
Total snowfall varied from 347 cm at Quartz Creek west of Golden to 149 cm
at 10 miles east of Golden and 125 cm at Athalmer. There seemed to be a general
increase in blizzard activity over that of previous years. The paved highways were
kept bare all winter with only short periods during which a compact snow surface
existed.
 REGIONAL REPORTS

The Maintenance Management System swung into full gear with numerous
training sessions for all involved personnel.
Bridges
Maintenance—Routine maintenance was carried out on all bridges. All structures received a thorough cleaning. Driftwood was removed from under bridges
over the Columbia River.
Brisco Bridge, completed the previous year, was painted. Fence panels on the
Donald Overhead, Quartz Creek, Blueberry, and Yoho Bridges were painted by
summer student employees.
A 120-foot triple-single standard reinforced widened Bailey bridge was constructed over the Spillimacheen River on Giant Mine Road to replace an old log-
stringer double span.
Tegart Bridge in the Windermere area was replaced with a 21-foot timber
stringer span.
Buildings
New prefabricated-steel powder houses were installed at Golden and
Athalmer.
Extensive landscaping was carried out in the Golden yard. Trees were planted
around the perimeter of the main establishment. The travelled areas of the yard
and the employee parking-lot were paved and arrows painted to direct all traffic in
one direction. This was done to try to minimize the possibility of collision.
Extensive clearing and grading of the storage area was carried out and
materials restockpiled in a more orderly manner.
Additional property was purchased at Athalmer to provide enough room for
future expansion.
Revelstoke District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance was carried out on all district roads, with
the emphasis on shoulder-widening and guardrail maintenance on Trans-Canada
Highway 1 and Nakusp-Mica Creek Highway 23.
On Trans-Canada Highway 1, the creek channel was cleaned out at Griffin
Creek, the approaches were paved at Eagle River Bridge, and brushing was carried
out at Three Valley. A turn-around was constructed at the top of Albert Canyon
Hill and repairs to the catch basin and drainage system were undertaken at the top
of Three Valley Hill.
Extensive stream channel maintenance was done above Greely-Illecillewaet
Bridge. A considerable amount of debris was removed from the stream channel
above Jack McDonald Avalanche Shed. Two small bridges were replaced with
culverts on Waverly Trail and Trout Lake-10 Mile Roads.
Liquid calcium was used as a dust palliative on Balfour-Kaslo-Galena Bay
Highway 31 and on some side roads in front of residences.
Flood damage was negligible with some riprap required along the Illecillewaet
River bank at Greely Road.
Landscaping at Revelstoke intersection was completed, including the planting
of trees, shrubs, and lawns.
Construction—Construction of the eastern access to Revelstoke continued
with widening at Trans-Canada Highway 1 intersection to facilitate channelization
and extension of two multiplate culverts on Trans-Canada Highway 1.  Trees were
 B  100 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
planted on high-cut slopes for stabilization purposes and 1 mile of paving was
completed.
The approaches were constructed and the grade raised at the following new
bridges: Talman, Hill Creek, and Greely-Illecillewaet Bridges.
Reconstruction of 0.75 mile was completed on Balfour-Kaslo-Galena Bay
Highway 31. A number of other roads were reconstructed during the year, amounting to approximately 3.3 miles with 2.15 miles of paving being completed.
Snow removal—An average snowfall of 760 cm was recorded in the Revelstoke District; however, the frequency of light falls of wet snow resulted in the use
of more sand and salt than usual.
Bridges
A wooden deck was installed on Eagle River Bridge at Kay Falls due to
deterioration of concrete. Redecking was completed on Columbia River Bridge.
The old Bigmouth Bridge was moved to Greely and placed on piers to replace
Greely-Illecillewaet Bridge. A new 40-foot log-stringer bridge was constructed to
replace Talman Bridge and also a new 30-foot log-stringer bridge was constructed
to replace Hill Creek Bridge.
Buildings
Septic-tank drainage fields were installed at 50 Mile Camp and Shelter Bay
Complex. A battery room was built in the Revelstoke garage and new doors were
installed on service bay and bridge shop in Revelstoke yard. Storage shed extension was completed at 50 Mile Camp. A one-bay equipment shed was constructed
and three trailers were reroofed at Mica Creek. A new salt shed was constructed
in the Revelstoke yard.
Ferries
MV Galena maintained a regular schedule throughout the year with the following exceptions:
(a) It was drydocked for repairs and painting from June 16, 1975, to
June 21, 1975; service was maintained with B.C. Hydro tug and
barge.
(b) The ferry ran on one motor with assistance of B.C. Hydro tug from
July 3, 1975, to July 8, 1975, and again from September 16, 1975,
to October 9, 1975, while propulsion unit was being repaired.
Creston District
Roads
Maintenance—Spring run-off was normal with no serious flood problems.
Riprap was required on a short section of Corn Creek and short sections of
Reclamation Road along the Kootenay River.
Pavement repairs commenced early on trunk highways where pavement breaking was severe, then crews transferred to secondary road patching in preparation
for an extensive repair program involving large machine patches and sandseal surface treatment on road sections covering a total of 26 miles, including 11 miles of
actual sandseal. One hundred thousand gallons of asphalt oil were used. Our
program of improved delineation of major highways continues.
Dust control was carried out successfully on 60 miles of gravel roads using
flake and liquid calcium in place of bituminous materials. Brush and weed control
was carried out by machine, hand, and minor use of chemical.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  101
Preparation of winter sand stockpiles was delayed due to the late arrival of
salt supplies from companies involved in labour disputes.
Improvement of roadside rest areas continued. Although the over-all planned
maintenance program was completed, over-all production was down due to additional holiday adjustments for personnel.
Construction—Destiny Bay to Lockhart project continued with 1.6 miles
grade completed and 0.6 mile paved by blademix; 1 mile West Arrow Creek Road
reshaped and gravelled; 0.23 mile Christie Road East constructed and gravelled;
0.57 mile of Croasdale Road constructed and gravelled; 0.15 mile of Creston-
Erickson Road realigned and paved by blademix; 0.28 mile of Hemlock Road
regraded and gravelled; 0.3 mile of switchbacks eliminated on Simmons Road and
gravelled; 0.85 mile of Riondel North Road reconstructed and gravelled.
Snow removal—Snowfall was light throughout the district and winter maintenance was routine. Snowslides on the Salmo to Creston section were numerous
due to warmer than usual temperatures even though the general snowfalls were
light. The 25-hour three-shift system used in lower levels gave excellent coverage,
but at a higher cost in man-hours and materials.
Bridges
General maintenance, including extensive cleaning and fence-rail painting, was
carried out where required.
Buildings
Routine maintenance was carried out as required on salt silo, winter equipment sheds in gravel pits, and miscellaneous buildings.
REGION 4
(L. A. Broddy, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George)
Prince George, Quesnel, Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Vanderhoof, and
McBride Highway Districts
Prince George District
Roads
Maintenance—No major frost-heave damaging was encountered of trunk
Highway 16 or Highway 97, south of Prince George; however, numerous short
sections of John Hart Highway 97, north of Prince George, required road base and
pavement repairs.
Spring flooding caused a few minor washouts on local side roads.
Numerous frost boils on local side roads necessitated the hauling of shale and
gravel for repairs.
Construction—Major day labour projects included the reconstruction of 2.7
miles and 1.25 miles of shoulder-widening of trunk highway routes. Also, 11.95
miles of main feeder routes were reconstrupted and 17.28 miles of main feeder
routes were gravelled.
Major improvements (ditching and establishing drainage) were completed on
19.22 miles of school bus and feeder routes.
For major patching of John Hart Highway and Yellowhead 16 West, 12,400
tons of asphalt were laid by district crews.
 B  102
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
On local roads, 166,000 gallons of dust palliative were placed and 54,000
gallons of liquid calcium chloride and 9,000 gallons of M & F road stabilizer were
used on local gravel roads.
During the summer season, 254,000 cubic yards of gravel were used by district
forces on day labour and local upgrading.
Over the past winter, 30,000 cubic yards of screened sand were used for sanding by district crews.
Snow removal—The above-average snowfall this past winter necessitated the
use of above-normal usage of salt to maintain the bare pavement policy on trunk
highways.
Quesnel District
Roads
Maintenance—Due to a wet summer, only 47 miles of road were oiled to
control dust. After cleaning the ditches on the trunk and main highways, the
gradall continued on to ditch 5.3 miles of subdivision roads.
A rest stop, complete with toilets and tables, was constructed 11 miles north
of Hixon.
Unseasonally warm temperatures through December and January required the
use of heavier than normal salt applications. The warm temperatures also caused
the pavement on Highway 97 at McLeese Lake, and between Quesnel and Hixon,
to deteriorate very quickly, resulting in pavement patching being carried on continuously from late January to March.
Construction—A total of 23.65 miles of Cariboo Highway 97 south of
McLeese Lake and north of Hixon was widened.
Reconstruction on minor side roads totalled 5 miles.
Bridges
Barker and Hamilton Bridges were replaced by new structures. The substructure for Udi Creek was built and a multiplate arch pipe to replace First Creek was
assembled and readied for placement after high water.
The sidewalk on the old Fraser River Bridge at Quesnel became unsafe and
was removed.
A cattle underpass was assembled and placed under Cariboo Highway 97 at
its junction with Soda Creek-Big Lake Road.
McLarry Bridge was redecked.
Buildings
An overhead radial crane was assembled in McLeese Lake garage.
Ferries
The south ramp and both aprons were reconstructed and repairs were made
to the aerial traveller on Soda Creek ferry.
Soda Creek and Marguerite ferrys operated under normal conditions until
they were removed during the first week in November to be replaced by aerial
cages.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  103
Dawson Creek District
Roads
Maintenance—For a second winter, snowfall was 75 per cent of average.
Weather conditions, however, again necessitated well-above-average use of sand
and chemical to control ice and snow.
Spring break-up was better than normal with very little flood damage
resulting.
A dry summer made it possible to complete 20 miles of grader ditching.
Extensive pavement patching was carried out with 3,860 cubic yards of f.o.b.
hot mix and 2,650 cubic yards of cold premix used.
Also, 20,000 cubic yards of pit-run gravel were stockpiled for future crushing
and 82,000 tons of crushed gravel were produced by the regional crusher.
Construction—A light construction year was experienced; however, 10 miles
of new road were constructed, 24 miles were reconstructed, 21 miles were gravelled,
and 51 miles were regravelled.
The side areas on Alaska Highway 97, Kiskatinaw Hill, were repaired by
installation of 1,340 linear feet of perforated pipe and a 0.25-mile section was
paved.
A major earth slide interrupted traffic for a short time on Alaska Highway 97,
Peace River Hill; however, the area was dressed down and a temporary road over
the slide was constructed and gravelled. Also, a 0.7-mile section of highway south
of the present slide area, being the 1974 reconstruction, was paved.
The 1974 Saskatoon Creek project on Rolla Road 3 was complete with the
installation of 600 linear feet of 48-inch culvert to repair major erosion.
Construction continued on Kelly Lake Road with 6 miles of reconstruction
and gravelling and an additional 3 miles of gravelling on the previous year construction completed.
A further effort was made to replace failing wood culverts under Alaska Highway 97 with the replacement of a wood culvert at Mile 13 with 158 feet of 6.75 by
5-foot multiplate and 20-inch-high fill.
Surfacing—The Paving Branch completed 6.86 miles of paving on Highway
49 and 35 miles on Highway 29. The district day labour on these projects were
placing of crushed gravel on 1.57 miles of Highway 49 and patching of all old
pavement and culvert and ditch repair on 35 miles of Highway 29.
Bridges
Four new bridges were constructed with a total length of 372 linear feet and
13 minor bridges received varying amounts of maintenance. All bridges in the
district were washed.
Buildings
The district continued to develop the Mile 22 maintenance yard with construction of trailer facilities, access roads, power installation, and a 24 by 30-foot
salt shed.
Paving of the Chetwynd yard was completed and concrete fuel-pump islands
were poured.
Ferries
The Clayhurst ferry operated with very little interruption from March 14,
1975, to December 15, 1975, when very cold weather necessitated removal from
 B  104 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
the river.   The ferry returned to the water February 24, 1976; however, regular
service was not resumed until March 26, 1976.
Fort St. John District
Roads
Maintenance—The 1975 spring break-up was moderate with load restrictions
imposed between April 16 and May 27. The road system did not suffer severely
during the break-up period.
The summer was reasonably dry, followed by excellent weather in the fall.
As a result, our road system went into winter in better condition than it has for
some time.
Major landslide problems were repaired on Highway 29 at Mile 16 and 2 miles
west of Hudson Hope.
Construction—The day-labour construction program was very small and work
was cleaned up early. Eighteen miles of reconstruction and gravelling was completed as well as major culvert installations at Mile 41 on the Alaska Highway and
bridge replacement on Upper Cache Road.
Snowfall—Winter was moderate with less than average snowfall and higher
than average temperatures.
Bridges
Reconstruction of Halfway River Bridge on Highway 29 got underway with
the structure itself going to contract. Dillingham put in the piers and Dominion
Bridge has the contract to erect the steel.
The district completed approximately 50 per cent of the approach work with
the balance to be completed in 1976 when the structure is complete.
Two bridges were reconstructed and major improvements completed on Blueberry River Bridge pier in addition to routine maintenance.
Buildings
The bridge crew completed the Hudson Hope salt shed.
Vanderhoof District
Roads
Maintenance—Vanderhoof District had a relatively mild break-up and a low
snow-pack which created only minor flooding problems.
During the early part of the summer the district again improved rest stops at
Bednesti, Fort Fraser, and Dry William Lake with the planting of shade trees.
The Dust Control Program this year included the use of liquid calcium chloride which proved very satisfactory over high-volume roads with good retention of
the dust palliative qualities over a long period of time.
One mile of fencing and one cattle guard were installed.
Construction—In the Francois Lake area, 3.6 miles of Francois Lake Road
were widened and gravelled. In the Fraser Lake area, 3.3 miles of Lily Lake Road
and 1.3 miles of Dog Creek Road were widened and gravelled and 11 miles of
right-of-way of Telegraph Road were cleared and grubbed, and 0.7 mile was
reconstructed.
In continuing projects, 2.5 miles of Blackwater Road were reconstructed and
gravelled, and the intersection of Mapes and Blackwater Roads were realigned.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  105
In the Fort St. James area, 0.5 mile of Roberts Road was reconstructed and
proper drainage established. Four miles of Sowchea Road were gravelled and
0.25 mile of frost-boil area was reconstructed.
On Yellowhead Highway 16, 5.6 miles of shoulder-widening were completed
and the approaches for Stellako Overhead were constructed with the exception of
pavement.
Bridges
The approach spans and the deck system of Nechako Bridge at Vanderhoof
were renewed. The southerly Howe truss, which was 50 per cent destroyed by fire,
was rebuilt.
East Murray Creek Bridge was reconstructed and Murray Creek Bridge was
widened and a sidewalk added. A sidewalk was also added to Nautley Bridge.
Mining-roads and Trails
The district bridge crew installed a laminated deck on Omineca Bridge at
Germansen Landing during the summer, and the approach fills were completed.
The Department supervised snow-ploughing of Omineca Mining Road during
the winter.
McBride District
Roads
Maintenance—More-than-average precipitation during the summer months
caused cut-slope sluffing along Yellowhead Highway 16 in the McBride and the
Tete Jaune areas. Several of these slips required immediate attention. Because of
frequent rains, extensive grading of the feeder roads was required. We experienced
one major slide at Spitale Creek which resulted in an eight-hour road closure.
Construction—District forces reconstructed and gravelled 1.3 miles of minor
roads in the district as well as widened 1.1 miles of shoulders within Blue River.
Major ditch repairs were carried out along Highway 5 from Avola to Clemina.
Construction and paving of the last remaining section of Yellowhead Highway 16
west of Tete Jaune was completed near the end of June. District forces undertook
the shoulder treatment of that section for the Construction Branch.
Snow removal—Winter snowfall was less than average but, due to generally
mild temperatures throughout the winter months, compact snow and icy road conditions prevailed for lengthy periods. Extensive sanding and salting were necessary.
Surfacing—A 25.2-mile contract was awarded to Dawson Construction for
resurfacing the section of Yellowhead South Highway 5 from Miledge Creek to
1 mile north of Clemina Overhead. The contract is scheduled for completion in
1976. District crews carried pre-drainage preparations over the entire contract
for an estimated cost of $40,000.
Bridges
The Dore River and Dore River Overhead structures on Yellowhead Highway
16 were completed in late June and reopened for traffic. Horsey Creek Bridge was
the last structure to-be completed on Yellowhead Highway 16 and was opened to
traffic in July. The district bridge crew dismantled the Bailey bridge on the detour.
A major abutment modification was carried 'out by the local bridge and road crew
on West Twin Bridge at an over-all cost of $44,721.
 B  106 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
REGION 5
(L. A. Broddy, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George)
Prince Rupert, Terrace, Dease Lake, Smithers, and
Burns Lake Highway Districts
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance—Unusually rapid spring break-up along the Nass River south of
Meziadin caused area crews some difficulty maintaining public access through this
low-standard section of Highway 37.
Elsewhere in the district, spring clean-up activities proceeded to schedule with
all major items completed by early June.
Again this year, Yellowhead Highway 16 required a major pavement patching
program to keep abreast of surface deterioration. This work was accomplished
before the tourist season reached a peak.
In both Queen Charlotte Islands and Rupert areas the Gradall ditching program continued, with a total of 10 miles accomplished for the year.
The district carried out a brush control program in the Prince Rupert and
Queen Charlotte Island areas. A grader-mounted flail-type cutter was used extensively, supplemented by hand-brushing.
Queen Charlotte Island crews carried out a minor pavement patching program
using a district patchmobile asphalt patching-machine.
The Rupert area crew erected a changeable message sign bridge at Galloway
Rapids on Yellowhead Highway 16.
Construction—Meziadin area: Emergency repairs were effected on a 40-mile
section of Highway 37 south from the Nass River to Cranberry Junction. This
work involved minor ditching and realignment, culvert installation, and considerable regravelling.
Queen Charlotte Islands area: An 8-mile section of Towhill Road was
reshaped and regravelled.
Stewart area: From the Bear River crossing to Bear Canyon on Stewart-
Meziadin Road, the area crew accomplished 12 miles of regravelling and reshaping.
Snow removal—In Stewart a new position of Avalanche Co-ordinator was
created and filled late in the fall.
Snowfall recorded at Meziadin was unusually high, bringing all the attendent
problems with removal, storage, and avalanches. Except for periods when the
avalanche hazard was high, all roads in the district were kept open to traffic
throughout the winter.
Bridges
Rupert area: As in previous years, a program of timber bridge deck surface
treatment on Yellowhead Highway 16 was carried out to provide improved traction
during periods of wet weather.
Stewart area: Bear River Howe truss received a new deck system complete
• with cross-ties.
An extensive program of redecking was carried out on minor timber bridges
both here and in the Meziadin area.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
Ferries
B 107
Rupert area: The Department continued to subsidize Prince Rupert Ferry
(1967) Ltd., operating to provide transportation from outlying settlements in the
area.
Queen Charlotte Islands area: A new ferry, MV Kwuna, was introduced into
service in the fall, running between Skidegate on Graham Island and Alliford Bay
on Moresby Island. District area and technical crews provided assistance in construction of the new ferry ramps.
Terrace District
Roads
Maintenance—General maintenance on highways and side roads was carried
out along with considerable gravelling being done to strengthen the road base.
Fall rain caused a large volume of rock to fall from the larger newly constructed rock cuts west of Terrace and kept the crews busy well into the winter.
Construction—Day-labour construction was continued at Yellowhead Highway 16, Mile 20 to Mile 27 west of Terrace; Kalum Lake Road, bridge approaches
at Deep and Lean-to Creeks.
New asphalt pavement was placed on the approaches to the new Skeena River
Bridge at Terrace, Kalum Lake Road (4 miles) and Krumm Road (2 miles).
Access to the new Ski Hill at Kitsumkalum Mountain was reconstructed over
a partially constructed 7-mile route.
Snow removal—Snowfall was from below average to average throughout the
district, producing below average avalanche activity in the Skeena Valley west of
Terrace.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on the many wooden bridges throughout
the district.
New bridges were opened to traffic at the Exstew River and the Skeena River
at Terrace.
The district bridge crew constructed a 120-foot triple-single Bailey bridge over
the Walwelth River at Kitimaat Indian Village, replacing a two-span log structure.
Buildings
A 20 by 40-foot equipment shed was erected and put to good use at our Salvus
Camp 37 miles west of Terrace.
Ferries
The reaction ferry and cable car at Usk were operated on a double-shift
schedule seven days each week.
Dease Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—During the 1975/76 fiscal year, under day-labour projects,
0.5 mile of Highway 37 was partially reconstructed just north of Cassiar Junction
and 5 miles of right-of-way cleared and grubbed in preparation for reconstruction.
Approximately 20 wood-stave culverts were replaced with C.I.P.s in conjunction
 B 108
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
with nearly 12 miles of ditching.  Also, 4 miles of flood-damage repairs south of
Bob Quinn Lake were completed.
Except for some flooding at three major culverts south of Bob Quinn Lake,
there was no major storm damage this year.
Construction—Major construction was started on a 22-mile stretch of road
beginning approximately 25 miles north of Dease Lake. Completion is expected
late next year.
Roads in the Atlin area were good. Some clearing and minor road repairs
were made to O'Donnell River Road under day labour.
Bridges
Four small bridge structures in the Telegraph Creek area were replaced by
multiplate culverts, and one Bailey bridge on the new grade north of Dease Lake
was dismantled for use next year.
Smithers District
Roads
Maintenance—Routine maintenance throughout the season included grader
tight-blading and reshaping, minor spot gravelling on side roads, hand-patching on
paved sections, and rest area cleaning and roadside litter pick-up in the spring.
Twenty-one miles of gravel roads had liquid calcium chloride treatment for dust
control. A rock slide in Bulkley Canyon in May cut Yellowhead Highway 16 to
single lane for one day. Centreline was replaced on much of Yellowhead Highway
16 and some fencing was done along the highway.
Snow removal—There was an extremely high snowfall over winter, maintenance crews worked on a three-shift system giving coverage 19 hours daily with
priority to the trunk highway and to school bus routes.
Construction—An additional 5.1 miles of shoulder-widening was done on
Yellowhead Highway in east end of the district. Bridge approaches to the new
Kitwanga Bridge over the Skeena River from Yellowhead Highway 16 through a
portion of the Kitwanga Indian Reserve to Cedarvale-Kitwanga Road were built
and gravelled. This will be the starting point for Route 37, Kitwanga-Meziadin
Highway. No-post concrete guardrail was installed in eight locations along the
Skeena River. A pedestrian underpass was built at Kitseguecla Village to increase
the safety of pedestrians crossing the highway within the village.
Bridges
Routine maintenance prevailed throughout the season. Bulkley Bridge at
Telkwa was replanked with asphalt planks. The bridge crew spent several days
with the Cedarvale ferry problem. Two small bridges were replaced with large
culverts. Canyon Creek 4 and Hynes Bridges were replaced with prestressed-
concrete stringer bridges since the first of the year.
Ferry
The Cedarvale ferry started out the year as usual after a winter, when the
aerial ferry is available for pedestrians only. On July 2, the south tower collapsed,
allowing the ferry to run downstream the length of the main-line cable. The
passengers on board at the time were lifted off unharmed with the use of a heli-

B  109
copter from Terrace. A front-end loader was lost overboard but recovered at a
later date. No final plans have been announced as to the future of this ferry. The
aerial ferry remains in service for pedestrian use on a 10-hour daily schedule.
Burns Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—Spring break-up in 1975 was plagued by overnight freezing
conditions which caused considerable icing problems.
Approximately 6 miles of roadway were ditched with the new Gradall-type
machine shared with Smithers. The pull grader was again utilized in the South-
bank area and completed 6 miles of ditching.
Seven persons were employed on the WIG Program, assisting in garbage and
litter pick-up, sign and guardrail painting, and other minor labourer jobs.
Two new steel cattleguards were installed near Houston. The approaches to
Buck Creek Bridge were paved with premix asphalt.
Several pits were fenced and both the Southbank and Burns Lake yards were
improved.
Construction—An additional 5 miles of Keefe's Landing Road was brought
up to 45-m.p.h. standards.
Approximately 1.5 miles of Colleymount Road were reconstructed to provide
a 50-m.p.h. standard and surveys were completed for an additional 3 miles.
About 3.5 miles of Buck Flats Road were rebuilt and 1 mile of Day Lake
Road was cleared for construction next year.
Snow removal—An average snowfall combined with freezing and thawing
necessitated more than normal salt and calcium usage. Week-end and night shifts
insured good road conditions all winter.
Bridges
The bridge crew spent about 20 per cent of their time in assisting with the
work on the new ferry-landings at Francois Lake and repairs to the Bubbler system.
Findlay Creek Bridge was widened 8 feet by addition of a 4-foot cantilever to
each side.
A new steel-stringer bridge was built at Trout Creek using the stringers
removed from the old Buck Bridge.
The old Buck River 2 Bridge, which was replaced by a new bridge in 1970,
was removed and destroyed.
Buildings
Some renovations were made to the new District Office and staff moved in
in February 1976.
A new parking-lot was constructed at Burns Lake Courthouse.
Extensive repairs were made to Burns Lake salt shed and lighting was
improved in both Burns Lake and Southbank yards.
Ferries
The MV Jacob Henkel was out of service on two occasions this year—once
for annual refit, and again when the north shore ferry dock became unsafe for use,
due to a failure in the fill for the new dock facilities. On both occasions service
was provided by tug and barge.
 B  110
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
Dock construction started on both the north and south landings in January
1976 and is expected to be completed by June 23, 1976.
The new ferry is being reassembled at Nicholson Bay, is scheduled for launching in mid-May, and is expected to go into service on July 1, 1976.
REGION 6
(P. J. Carr, Regional Highway Engineer, Burnaby)
Nanaimo, Saanich, Port Alberni, and Courtenay Highway Districts
Nanaimo District
Roads
Maintenance—A major ditching operation was carried out on the residential
areas with a view to alleviating residential flooding. Roadmix asphalt was applied
to many feeder roads leading to residential areas, also farm-to-market routes. A
program of installing no-post guardrail to the guardrail index standards was followed with considerable work completed during the year. The growth of subdivisions has continued to increase with the need to upgrade numerous drainage
structures to fit the growth pattern.
Construction—An access road to the new Malaspina College was constructed
and paved.
Considerable improvements were made to road shoulders on trunk and main
highway to allow walking shoulders for increased pedestrian traffic where such
growth had taken place.
Snow removal—It was a fairly light winter as far as snow was concerned;
however, the freeze and thaw conditions resulted in heavy use of chemicals and
sand. Salt was brought onto Vancouver Island by barge, resulting in greater
economy and availability of a season's supply. The access road to Green Mountain
ski area was maintained open at all times in spite of heavy snowfall in that particular area.
Bridges
Thatcher Bridge was completely rebuilt and a number of other structures were
given major repairs in the way of superstructure renewal. A program of washing
all structures with pressure water was instituted and all drains cleaned or replaced
where necessary.
Buildings
A new yard-site was obtained and cleared and levelled at Cassidy. A salt
storage shed was completed at Lake Cowichan.
Ferries
Gabriola and Thetis Island ferries maintained normal service. Traffic volumes
continued to increase on both ferry routes with an extreme influx of traffic to
Gabriola Island during the summer months.
Saanich District
Roads
Maintenance—The Maintenance Management Performance Budget was a
challenge for all personnel, resulting in an acceptable level of achievement for the
first year of the program.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  111
Heavy rainfalls in the first week of December caused considerable flooding
problems, requiring crews to work very long hours to alleviate water damage to
homes and district roads.
Saanich District hosted the Regional Safety Awards Banquet for their achievement as the district with the best improved frequency. A truck rodeo was held for
district operators and it is hoped that this will be an annual event.
A newly developed "Stimsonite" reflector was applied to the median barrier
on Patricia Bay Highway 17 and has proven to be very effective.
Minor betterments were carried out on numerous roads in the district, primarily
surface treatments and recapping of old pavements.
Construction—Summary of work done:
Project No.
2552—Willis Point Road, pulvimix, 1.3 miles.
2640—Mayne Island, premix and lay miscellaneous roads, 4 miles.
2641—Pender Island, premix and lay miscellaneous roads, 3 miles.
2743—Guardrail manufacture, 27-inch concrete no-post, 6,528 lineal feet.
2805—East Sooke Road, reconstruction, 2 miles.
2807—Whittaker Road, reconstruction and pulvimix, 0.8 mile.
2906—Saltspring Island, supply and delivery of % -inch crush, 15,000 tons.
2636—Jacklin Road, asphalt curbing, 7,000 lineal feet.
Bridges
McKenzie Bridge, Project 994, on Sooke Highway 14, was rebuilt using
precast-concrete deck beams. Repairs were carried out to Sombrio and Elford
Bridges and Phillips Bridge was replaced with a 48-inch culvert.
Buildings
Keating X-Road Maintenance Depot was completed and the Burnside crew is
now working from this assembly point. Concrete pads were placed at Saltspring,
Cobble Hill, and Port Renfrew to accommodate trailers for assembly and foremen's
offices.
Port Alberni District
Roads
Maintenance—Record rainfalls occurred in the fall, resulting in a major ditching operation in residential areas. Roadmix asphalt and plantmix asphalt were
applied to feeder roads in residential areas. A brushing program was carried out
in all areas.
Construction—An access road to Port Albion Road was constructed except for
a bridge and multiplate culvert which will be constructed this year.
Snow removal—Snowfall was below average in most areas; however, freeze
and thaw conditions required a substantial use of chemicals and sand. All areas
were patrolled 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Bridges
Lost Shoe Creek Bridge was reconstructed on Alberni-Tofino Highway 4,
Somers Bridge was reconstructed on Somers Road. Marlowe and Speht Bridges
were reconstructed on Baine Road. A sidewalk was constructed on French Creek
Bridge on Island Highway 19.    Batty Bridge was constructed on Batty Road.
 B  112
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1975/76
Ties, deck, fence, and sidewalk were renewed on Pachena River Bridge on Bamfield
Road.
Courtenay District
Roads
Maintenance—Considerable ditching and gravelling of roads and shoulder
maintenance of paved roads were carried out during the year.
Brush control has always been a problem in the area. Purchase of a Bomford
brush-cutter, along with a grader-mounted Roanoke brush-cutter, enabled maintenance crews to control this phase of work.
A new gravel pit was developed in Courtenay District in the Dove Creek area.
District forces completed the following roadmix pavement: Island Highway
19, Sayward, 1 mile; Cortes Island, 2 miles; Quadra Island, 2 miles; Courtenay
area, 15 miles; Campbell River area, 7 miles. On Port Alice access road, 8.8 miles
of sealcoat were placed on existing pavement.
Major flooding in November caused considerable road damage in the Port
Hardy area. Marble River Bridge washed out and Bear Creek fill and culverts
washed out on Highway 19. In Sayward Valley, Hammond Creek Bridge washed
out as well as a culvert and fill.
Snow removal—Winter conditions were not favourable. Numerous freezing-
thawing cycles resulted in heavy use of salt. Snowfall varied from 96 cm in Courtenay to 359 cm in Gold River and 301 cm  at Forbidden Plateau.
Spring road restrictions were not required.
Construction—Approximately 1,500 feet of new road were built and paved
to service the newly constructed Pool-Arena complex in the Courtenay area. This
will later be extended to make a link between Headquarters Road and Island
Highway 19.
A 2-mile section of road between Cumberland and Bevan Lodge was cleared
and grubbed for future widening.
Improvements were made to Island Highway 19 in the Port Hardy area where
rock corners between Holberg and Coal Harbour Road were removed. Alignment
of this highway was also improved at the approach to Glen Lyon Bridge.
A third lane was constructed and paved on the hill leading to Quadra Island
ferry-landing at Quathiaski Cove.
One mile of Coleman Road at Island Highway 19 end was reditched, widened,
and strengthened with a gravel lift. This is an important short cut for traffic from
Campbell River wishing to go to Comox ferry-landing or to Comox Airport.
Funds were provided to assist in construction of a concrete retaining-wall at
high-water mark of Alert Bay. The Nimpkish Indian Band received an LIP grant
and provided labour for the project. The Department of Highways provided
material and supervision. This is the second year of the project and over 1,000
feet of wall have now been constructed. It is not expected this project will extend
into a third year as nearly all the reserve frontage is completed.
Bridges
The old Tsable River Bridge on Island Highway 19 was dismantled.
A new two-span precast-concrete stringer bridge was constructed on Bridges
Cross Road near Courtenay.
A new 38-foot timber bridge was constructed on Kelland Road, but realignment of the road was not completed due to weather.
One hundred and seventy feet of timber bridge were constructed on Pickles
Road, on Denman Island. The bridge was necessary to cross a bog that is very deep.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  113
Several bridges were redecked, these being Buttle Crossing (Highway 19),
Bridges 2, Third Crossing Salmon River (Island Highway 19, Sayward Valley),
Headquarters, Fitzgerald, and, in the Port Hardy area, Keogh and Cluxewe Bridges.
Flooding washed out Marble River Bridge on Port Alice Road and this was
replaced with a 160-foot Bailey bridge. Hammond Bridge on Island Highway 19,
Sayward Valley, was washed out and replaced with a 100-foot timber bridge. Courtenay bridge crew constructed a 100-foot Bailey bridge for the construction Branch.
This was required for access to a Construction Branch project in the Sayward Valley.
Rock was drilled and blasted under Port Alice 2 Bridge between Rumble Beach
and Port Alice. This was required to make room for debris that has in the past
washed out the bridge.
Over 1,000 feet of sidewalk at Winter Harbour, adjacent to the shoreline, was
either repaired or renewed.
Buildings
A new link-mesh wire fence was installed on two sides of the Courtenay yard.
A parking area for office staff was built as the public were having difficulty finding
parking areas.
Start was made on a new oil house for the Port Hardy yard.
Minor revisions were undertaken in the Courtenay office building.
A store and two houses were dismantled on Campbell River arterial in preparation for reconstruction contract.
Ferries
Normal service was offered during the year by the following vessels: Albert J.
Savoie (Hornby Island), Klitsa (Denman Island), Comox Queen (Comox to West-
view) (also Queen of the Islands during the summer), Texada Queen (Texada
Island), Quadra Queen II (Quadra Island), Cortes Queen (Cortes Island), Nimpkish (Port McNeill to Alert Bay to Sointula).
On May 1, 1975, the Cortes Queen was stationed on Cortes Island. A cook
house and dining trailer as well as a sleeping and ablution trailer were set up at
Whaletown near the ferry-landing for the crew.
Property has been purchased at Alert Bay for ferry crew housing, but weather
prevented preparation of the site.
