 PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
Minister of Highways
REPORT
FOR THE FISCAL YEAR
1974/75
Printed by K. M. MacDonald, Printer to the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty
in right of the Province of British Columbia.
1975
  The Honourable Graham R. Lea, Minister of Highv ays.
 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 ending March 31, 1975, in compliance with the provisions
of the Department of Highways Act.
GRAHAM R. LEA
Minister of Highways
Office of the Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, July 31, 1975.
■
 Victoria, B.C., August 14, 1975.
The Honourable Graham R. Lea,
Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C.
Sir: I have the honour to present the Annual Report of the Department of
Highways for the fiscal year ending March 31, 1975.
Details of the activities of the various branches within the Department in all
regions of the Province are contained within the Report, but some special factors
of significance should be brought to your attention.
During the year a study of the Department's organization and functions was
carried out resulting in recommendations aimed at increasing efficiency and improving control of the Department's operations. One such recommendation resulted in a decision to institute a system of managing the large maintenance operations of the Department.
Development of this system was undertaken in the early part of the year and
personnel training programs were conducted in the latter part of the year in order
that the system would have an implementation date of April 1, 1975. Proper
utilization of the system will, I am sure, prove the benefits to be attained in efficiency
and cost savings as well as provide for a more systematic accomplishment of maintenance tasks.
Other recommendations of the study relating to organization will be implemented on a gradual basis in accordance with the Department's ability to incorporate these changes.
Inflation and material shortages have had an adverse effect on the productivity
of the Department and the continuance of this problem will affect the current year's
program of highway improvements.
During the fiscal year the Department was heavily involved in collective bargaining which resulted in the signing of a Master Agreement with the B.C. Government Employees Union. The Master Agreement contained 12 component agreements. Negotiations also took place with the B.C. Government Professional
Employees Association although this Master Agreement was not signed until after
the end of the fiscal year. Members of the Department were represented on both
sides of the bargaining table and I wish to acknowledge the display of good will and
co-operation which enabled the agreements to be reached. Although the Department has entered a new era with the conclusion of these agreements, the same spirit
of service to the public prevails in the attitude of all Departmental employees.
The Department Metric Conversion Committee has completed the investigation and identification phases of metric conversion and is now proceeding with the
planning phase.
Notable retirements of long-service personnel were Miss V. Neary, Administrative Officer in Victoria, 38 years; C. Jeffs, Road Foreman, Nelson, 38 years; and
T. L. Taverna, Road Foreman, Boston Bar, 35 years' service.

REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER
The high level of day-labour reconstruction
was maintained through the summer of 1974.
Auxiliary personnel hired on a seasonal basis
reached a maximum of 2,048 during the summer season, the majority of whom were employed with the maintenance forces on day
labour reconstruction and other maintenance
work.
Maintenance costs on roads, bridges, and
ferries increased by approximately 30 per cent
due to increased work and greatly increased
materials costs due to inflation. Including costs
of flood protection and relief, a total of $80
million was spent in the fiscal year to maintain
approximately 25,000 miles of roads, 2,500
bridges, and 38 ferries, and the equipment and
machinery involved to do the work.
Special measures were undertaken to study,
combat, and identify the avalanche hazard on
r. g. Harvey. our highways.   Total snowfall over the winter
months was average in quantity but heavy in the later months and light in early
winter.
The Maintenance Management Program was carried through its final preparatory phase and the program was successfully initiated and implemented, effective the
end of March 1975. A total of 193 second- and third-level supervisors and 400
foremen was trained in this undertaking.
Plans were completed for a new ferry to serve the Queen Charlotte Islands
and a contract let for the construction of the vessel. A new vessel for the Francois Lake service was placed under design and design 70 per cent completed by the
end of the fiscal year.
Right-of-way settlements and other property acquisitions amounted to a total
of approximately $7Vi million expenditure with a total of 769 claims settled and
a further 762 claims under negotiation. Arbitration of two claims was completed
and six were in process.   Legal surveys were completed on 225 miles of road.
In June of 1974 a Master Agreement between the Provincial Government and
its nonprofessional employees was concluded and this Department took part in
the negotiations for this and in the continuing component agreement negotiations
which proceeded throughout the year. In addition to this, negotiations were participated in for a Master Agreement with the professional employees. An Annual
Approved Work Force was established in the Department and the control system
set up for this large manpower resource assisted greatly in the collective bargaining
process.
The Insurance and Claims Branch of this Department which handles claims
for all Government departments was involved in a total of 1,59'8 vehicle accidents
and 243 miscellaneous claims arising from accidents other than those involving
vehicles. A total of $238,524.85 was paid out and 63 claims were in process of
litigation at the end of the year. For insurance placed in the fiscal year, a total of
$276,932 was paid in premiums.

HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1974/75
P. B. MacCarthy.
ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SENIOR MAINTENANCE ENGINEER,
1974/75
Total cost of maintaining the 25,000 miles of road,
2,500 bridges, 38 ferries, and machinery was $80,000,000,
including flood prevention and relief. Employee wage
increases, the spiralling cost of purchasing materials and
equipment and inflationary trends are having a marked
effect on highway maintenance expenditures, which are
30 per cent higher than those in the previous fiscal year
and which are climbing exponentially.
The Avalanche Task Force appointed by the Honourable Minister investigated the avalanche problem in British
Columbia and in a report dated September 30, 1974, which
was tabled in the Legislature, recommended measures to be
taken to protect the highway system and prevent hazardous
avalanche occurrences. Many of the recommendations
outlined in the summary of the report were already or are presently being put into
effect.
During November and December schools stressing avalanche safety and rescue
were conducted at Terrace, Whistler Mountain, Allison Pass, and Creston. Additional schools at Rogers Pass 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 radio, 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 was forwarded daily to
the Vancouver weather office to help improve weather forecasts for avalanche areas.
Preventive road closures during periods of high avalanche hazard were implemented. In the Terrace-Prince Rupert section of Highway 16, Western Avalanche
Control Specialists Company were employed to act as a local avalanche co-ordinator
in evaluating the avalanche hazard to the highway and recommending closures when
necessary. In other avalanche areas this evaluation was made by local Departmental
officials.
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.
Highway relocation proposals on Highway 16 between Kasiks and Telegraph
Point were reviewed with respect to the avoidance of avalanche terrain.
During the last three months of 1974, snowfalls were unusually light throughout
the Province, particularly at higher elevations. In early 1975, however, snowfalls
were more frequent and by April 1 most areas had recorded close to average
precipitation.
Avalanche activity across the Province was average to below average. Of
note was the relatively low activity of the Terrace-Prince Rupert area and the much
higher activity of Bear Pass near Stewart. The Fraser Canyon also had a very
severe storm in February which resulted in many avalanches, poor visibility, and a
highway closure of four days' duration.
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.
 REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER
B  17
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. Through better planning and programming
Districts were able to accomplish beneficial work programs to supplement regular
maintenance activities. This program accounted for $2,280,000 in wages, material,
and hired equipment, and the hiring of 1,055 employees.
MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
The Maintenance Management Program was expanded so that all bridge
foremen were introduced to and began recording for a special bridge maintenance
program. Two Regional Maintenance Methods Technicians were appointed to
Region 4, as was an Engineer who subsequently terminated.
In late 1974, Roy Jorgensen Associates of Canada Ltd. were retained by the
Department to assist in the design and implementation of a comprehensive Maintenance Management System. This firm has the most experience on the North
American Continent in this particular field of management consulting. A design
team of Department Engineers and one Management Consultant met the target date
of April 1, 1975, with a basic reporting and data gathering system.
To obtain the maximum benefit from the Maintenance Management System it
was necessary to train 193 second- and third-level supervisors, and in addition some
400 foremen and subforemen are presently receiving training. The training courses,
valued in excess of $75,000, were obtained free of charge from the United States
Federal Highway Administration. The effect of this training has been noted in the
Department already in a Department-wide co-operative effort to implement the
system and to make it work, and the submission of better quality maintenance
reports based on facts rather than opinions.
The Highway Maintenance Management Program is a set of procedures that
are designed to give all levels of Departmental management information that will
enable them to plan, organize, staff, direct, and control their work.
It is impossible to schedule the occurrence of a pothole but experience in most
states and four other provinces has shown that it is possible to plan for and predict
average amounts of pavement patching. A better level of service to the public is a
direct result, as well as the better utilization of limited manpower and equipment.
The Maintenance Management Program is a management tool for the District
managers and the foremen to use to manage their work. The yearly work volumes
are planned on the basis of an inventory of roads and structures, with average rates
of work production to accomplish the Departmental standard of service. The
inventory was based on seven classes of roads, depending on the traffic volumes.
It is now possible to plan and apply levels of service based on the amount of use a
road has.
The Maintenance Standard indicates the proper condition to which the road is
expected to be maintained and the average amount of resources of men and equipment to obtain that condition.
The yearly work plan is really a performance budget meaning that all the
different types of work are planned and their dollar value computed from average
rates. As the year progresses the manager or foreman can plot his progress and
control expenditures while at the same time providing the necessary services.
As the new fiscal year begins over 200 foremen are reporting into the Management System with enthusiasm and exceptionally good quality data.
 B 18 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
ROADSIDE DEVELOPMENT
During 1974, hydroseeding of highway roadsides was undertaken in all four
regions of the Province. The program was expanded by having four separate crews
seeding on both major construction and day labour projects and refertilizing on
projects previously seeded. In all a total of 3,534 acres was seeded, 525 acres
mulched, and 2,045 acres refertilized.
The roadside rest area program continued and two major rest area-information
centre combinations started on Highway 1 in the Abbotsford-Chilliwack area. When
completed these will each have paved parking for 80 cars and 38 trucks or cars
with trailers, tourist information services, flush-toilet buildings, lighting, phone,
and other facilities capable of providing 24-hour tourist services. Plans are under
way for two more major sites on a somewhat smaller scale on Highway 499 between
the Serpentine River and the United States border. In all a total of 16 new rest
areas was built in 1974.
Plans to upgrade some of the existing rest areas by providing flush-toilets,
water systems, information shelters, and enlarged parking areas were commenced.
The Vernon District continued in the production of concrete picnic tables and
concrete toilets and a start was made on the production of litter containers for use
in the major rest areas. A total of 242 picnic tables and 15 toilets was constructed,
plus the forming of new fibreglass moulds.
The control of noxious weeds was undertaken in the Kamloops and Kootenay
areas of the Province where the use of Tordon for the control of knapweed had been
approved.
A research project into the production and use of various native plant species
for roadside use was continued on sections of the Upper Levels Highway and the
Cypress Bowl Highway.
Additional landscaping and provision of picnic tables were undertaken at five
of the major ferry terminals for the use of ferry patrons.
CENTRELINE AND PAVEMENT MARKINGS
During the summer of 1974, five centreline marking crews and two crosswalk
marking crews worked throughout the Province. While unseasonably wet weather
in the early part of the summer caused scheduling problems, excellent weather from
July to November prevailed and accordingly most of the program for painting
directional dividing lines and edge lines was completed.
The work completed accounted for 5,697 miles of yellow centreline marking,
2,557 miles of white edge marking, and 1,068 miles of prelining. Materials used
were 110,325 gallons of yellow paint, 32,779 gallons of white paint, and 808,610
pounds of glass bead; 3,498 catseye and 3,394 other type road marking reflectors
were installed or replaced. Also 24,000 pounds of thermoplastic material were
applied.
 REPORT OF ASSOCIATE DEPUTY MINISTER B  19
REPORT OF THE INSURANCE AND CLAIMS OFFICER 1974/75
The number of traffic accidents involving vehicles
owned by (or leased to) the Government was 1,592, including 205 cases in which the Government vehicle was
parked. During the previous 11-month period there were
1,313 accidents.
Effective March 1, 1974, all Government vehicles
were insured against third-party liability by the Insurance
Corporation of British Columbia, and all Category I
vehicles were also insured against collision damage. At
this time, there are no figures available from the Corporation covering claims experience.
During the last fiscal year, claim settlements were
still being completed pertaining to accidents occurring in
g.a.cavin. previous years,  and the total amount paid out was
$111,551.85.    This included bodily injury claims of $24,018, $3,303, $7,500,
$4,990, and $4,748 and a property damage claim of $5,470.

The Department's work force of continuous employees remained relatively constant at approximately
5,400 employees during 1974/75. Additional auxiliary or
seasonal employees were hired as required and this reached
a maximum of 2,048 during the summer construction
season.
In co-operation with Headquarters and Field Officials,
the Personnel Office introduced a new concept in manpower control in July 1974. The approved work force
control system has now been established covering every
work unit in the Department and is proving of benefit to
both management and employees.
During the past year this office received 1,167 applica-
a. r. Limacner. tions for employment, primarily for the summer employ
ment prgoarm.    Many thousand other applications were submitted direct to the
district offices.
The majority of new employees were hired directly within Districts or Branches
for entrance level positions. Departmental promotional opportunities required
1,972 postings, of which 549 were processed by the Public Service Commission.
As a comparison, the 1973/74 totals were 1,042 and 221, respectively.
During the past year, correspondence received in this office totalled 13,304
and letters issued totalled 2,278.
Last year there were 67 retirements, 18 deaths in service, 47 twenty-five-year
continuous service awards, and 4 thirty-five-year awards.

Equipment Branch
During the year a total of $18,526,048.28 was expended to cover the cost of maintenance and operation of
Government equipment operated by the Department of
Highways.
The sum of $7,840,505.87 was expended on the purchase of new equipment as follows: 41 motor graders,
54 rubber-tired tractors, 8 crawler tractors, 16 compact
sedans, 10 station wagons, 62 one-half to one and one-half
ton trucks, 182 four to five ton trucks, 1 soil sampling surface drill, 3 tractor trucks, 30 body-type sand spreaders,
5 rotary snow-ploughs, 52 truck-mounted snow-ploughs,
4 trailers, 2 brush cutters, 1 portable gravel crushing-plant,
and sundry small equipment, such as compressors, pumps,
vibratory rollers.
Sign Shop 1974
A net expenditure of $330,775.39 was incurred by the Departmental Sign
Shop in producing a total of 94,034 signs.
Some 89,200 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 33,000 standard
signs in stock.

Report of Communications Engineer
The VHF mobile radio system in Region 1 was completely redesigned and new
equipment was installed in all vehicles and at all repeater sites. This major project
was required to alleviate the severe congestion experienced in the area due to the
large number of mobile radios and the co-channel interference caused by a radio
system in Seattle. Several new repeater sites were installed, and some others dismantled.
The new system uses a concept quite different from that employed in Regions
2, 3, and 4. As a result, all of the supporting trunk radio system and its associated
functions had to be specially designed and installed. A new communications console at Deas Tower was installed to enable control and interconnection of all repeater sites in Region 1.
A total of 525 new mobile radios was purchased for the new system and a
further 375 new mobile radios were purchased for Highways' requirements in the
remainder of the Province for replacement and additional purposes. Many base
stations, auxiliary equipment, antennas, trunk radios, repeater control panels,
portable radios, and buildings were also acquired.
Throughout the year the new communications laboratory in Victoria established its value by enabling us to build, test, and evaluate the many special devices that are required for particular systems in the Department of Highways.
Because of the relatively large injection of new solid-state equipment into our
radio system, over-all reliability has again increased substantially, even with the
larger number of equipped vehicles.
 B 26 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1974/75
Some engineering and planning work for system changes in 1976 has been
performed, and the preliminary work required to accommodate the geographical
expansion of Region 1 has been completed.
Through the use of a new service report form, we are now able to compile
statistical information which will allow us to pin-point problems associated with
equipment and technical staff. Work loads can also be distributed among our
available technicians to maximize the over-all serviceability of the radio system.
The effects of changing the technicians' geographical areas of responsibility can be
analysed reasonably accurately.
Report of Superintendent of Ferries
During the past year, ferry service was provided on 36 routes under the jurisdiction of the Department. This was accomplished by a fleet consisting of twenty
major ferries, eight reaction ferries, four cable ferries, five subsidized vessels, and six
miscellaneous ferries. There are also two tugs and six barges maintained for emergency purposes.
TRAFFIC
The fleet carried 2,517,287 vehicles and 6,515,016 passengers.
MAINTENANCE
All ferries were inspected during the year and repairs carried out where necessary. Eleven major ferries were drydocked and overhauled. Relief ferries were
provided for interim service wherever possible.
MAJOR CHANGES
New Denver District—The operation of the Arrow Park cable ferry was taken
over again by the Department in May 1974.
Prince Rupert District—A contract was let for construction of a new ferry to
operate between Alliford Bay and Skidegate on the Queen Charlotte Islands.
Burns Lake District—A contract was let for a new ferry to operate across
Francois Lake.

HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1974/75
REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER
Submit herewith are reports from the Senior Engineer,
the Director of Construction, the Senior Paving Engineer,
the Director of Highway Design and Surveys, and the
Senior Traffic Engineer.
These reports clearly relate the extensive undertakings
and accomplishments of these branches within the 1974/75
fiscal year.
Despite the wet spring it has been a very productive
year.
Construction on Highway 1 east of Highway 9 has
progressed well and the Upper Levels on Highway 1 in
West Vancouver is nearing completion. There has been
some delay in the completion of the structures on this
section. Two new contracts have been awarded on the
Island Highway between Sayward and Woss.
A major contract was awarded for the fabrication and erection of a new deck
for the causeway of the First Narrows Bridge. This will require six-hour closures
at night so that the old concrete deck can be lifted out and replaced with a wider
steel section.
Paving prices increased by as much as 45 per cent but the tonnages laid were
approximately the same.

 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER B 31
REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF HIGHWAY DESIGN AND SURVEYS
Highway design and surveys completed during the
fiscal year are listed in the following report, totalling 276
miles of preliminary line, 213 miles of location line, and
188 miles of office design and esitmates.
Total expenditures amounted to $4,462,000.
Design expenditures are increasing year by year and
we are up to 60 per cent over last year for approximately
the same amount of mileage design, preliminary and
completed.
Several factors have contributed to this, the most
cogent of which has been the shortage of skilled manpower
in the engineering and engineering support sectors.   It has
proved very difficult to replace experienced employees who
e. e. Readshaw. nave jef(; ancj several vacancies have only been filled after
periods of up to nine months. The introduction of the several collective agreements
has, in addition, reduced working-hours by 5 per cent and almost eliminated the
use of overtime. These factors plus the added complexity of design brought about
by the close attention being paid to environmental factors and interagency consultation have increased the average time for design from about 60 man-days per mile
to 110 man-days per mile of highway designed. With the increased urbanization
in the Province the proportion of projects carried out in urban areas where a greater
degree of detail has to be considered the design time has also been increased. The
variation between the time required in sparsely settled rural areas versus developed
urban areas is from about 27 to 280 man-days per mile. Because of these problems
the Department has made greater use of consultants than in previous years.
E. E. Readshaw
Director of Highway Design and Surveys

 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER

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.
The investigation and identification phases of metric conversion were completed and the planning phase started during the year. Rationalized (hard) conversion is planned in order to gain the full benefits of the conversion. Metric units
for Departmental use have been established as have scale ratios for most plans.
The need for a public awareness program to introduce metric conversion was
recognized by the Department's Metric Conversion Committee. Consequently,
arrangements were made to place 26 advisory metric distance signs throughout the
Province. The signs appear to be well accepted by the travelling public.
Plans have been made to start production of the 26,000 metric signs needed
on Provincial highways for the scheduled conversion date of September 1977.
Plans are being made for Departmental metric training sessions during late
1975 and early 1976. The scheduled start of metric surveys in 1976 is contingent
on the supply of metric equipment and the conversion of the national highway
design standards to metric.

REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
A total of $21.4 million was expended on bridges
and ferry terminals, and 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.
The award of a $7 million contract for improvements
to the north viaduct of Lions Gate Bridge was the highlight
of the bridge program for the year. Other gratifying
achievements were the opening to traffic of seven structures on the Trans-Canada Highway in West Vancouver
and of the elimination of the last timber bridge on the
Yellowhead South Highway.

Bridge Design
In contrast to the concentration of attention on one or two major highways of
previous years, design work was directed mainly to independent structures in various
parts of the Province. Some of these structures were part of the systematic upgrading of a highway, e.g., Stellako Overhead on the Yellowhead Highway; others were
required to meet the needs of a local realignment improvement, e.g., Cheekye River
Bridge on the Garibaldi Highway.
Work continues on the Island Highway.

 B 48 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
Bridge Construction
Forty bridges were completed in the 1974/75 fiscal year. On March 31, 1975,
32 bridges were under construction and work had not commenced on two others
which were under contract.   Particulars are given in the accompanying listing.
A general construction strike which lasted from May 1 to July 9 disrupted
bridge construction throughout the Province. The strike was particularly effective
on the Lower Mainland and on projects involving pile-driving crews and electricians,
the latter being associated with lighting and bridge-deck heating.
Concern for the environment was more evident this year with restrictions being
imposed on construction to protect commercial and sport fish. Co-operation between the authorities and contractors was excellent. An unprecedented escalation
in prices plagued the construction industry as materials became scarce. These increases, plus those resulting from labour settlements, brought about a sharp upswing
in bridge construction costs.
The construction of Upper Levels section of the Trans-Canada Highway has
been difficult and slow, resulting in the local populace not being too sympathetic.
Matters were further aggravated by a shortage of carpenters and rodmen, those who
place reinforcing steel, and by the material supply situation. During the year, seven
bridges were opened to traffic and by March 31 the four-lane facility was in use for
about one-half of its projected length. A good start was made on superstructure
construction on the three bridges at the east end of the construction section. Construction utilizes precast members which are manufactured in the Vancouver area,
trucked to the site, erected, and temporarily supported. These members are then
connected and after the decking is placed are tensioned to form a structural frame.
Construction of these structures was also delayed by two months due to a strike in
the precast industry. Four-lane traffic should be accommodated over the entire
construction section of the highway from Horseshoe Bay to Taylor Way by the
autumn of 1975.
In May, Bridgeport Road Underpass, the last structure of the Knight Street
Bridge complex, was opened to traffic. Outstanding minor work at the year's end
should be completed on this project in the next fiscal year.
Two contracts were awarded for the removal of the Fraser Street Bridge which
was replaced by the nearby Knight Street Bridge. This bridge, which comprises
two structures, has been a source of inconvenience and delay to the travelling public
for many years as well as being a hazard to marine traffic. The first contract was
for the removal of the swing span, which had seen service for 65 years, and for
removal of the steel truss from the south branch of the river by dismantling for use
elsewhere. The second contract was for the removal of the remaining portions of
the bridges. At the year's end, about 95 per cent of the second contract remained
to be completed.
Bridge construction on the Yellowhead Highway was basically centred about
two distant towns, namely McBride and Terrace. All told, eight sites were active
and of these six were opened to traffic.
Construction of the substructure for the two-structure crossing of the Skeena
River at Terrace was slowed by problems that beset the contractor. Difficulties
were experienced at the east main pier, and as a result, the contractor raced the
spring freshet to complete it. Later the rising water, resulting from a series of
October storms, almost destroyed the cofferdam for the other main pier. By mid-
December the contractor had overcome his cofferdam problems and progress on
pier construction was established.   At year's end the contract for the substructure

was about 85 per cent complete. During 1974, steelwork was erected for the west
structure and for a portion of the main structure.
The substructure was completed and steelwork erected for the Omineca River
Bridge at Germansen Landing, the bridge being funded by the Department of Mines
and Petroleum Resources. Construction of the timber deck by district forces is
scheduled for the summer of 1975.
Construction of the substructure for the bridge over the Skeena River at Kitwanga was completed in May. In February a high line was erected for use in erecting the steelwork. Erection commenced at the beginning of March and by the end
of the month about just over half the steelwork was erected.
The two long structures over the B.C. Harbour Board Railway near Cloverdale,
namely Colebrook Road Overpass and Roger Pierlet Overhead, were completed
during the year and the former opened to traffic. The other structure awaits completion of the highway connection at the north end.
Good progress was made during the year on the bridges under construction
on the Island Highway in the Nimpkish Valley west of Kelsey Bay. Except for minor
work four highway bridges and five logging underpasses were completed. The substructures for two other bridges were constructed and when finalized in 1975 will
complete bridge construction in that area.
In January the last timber Howe truss on the Yellowhead South Highway was
destroyed in a truck accident. Fortunately, construction of the new bridge had
reached a stage where with special measures it was possible to open it to traffic
within a few hours of the accident. Outstanding work will be completed during
the summer of 1975.
For Lions Gate Bridge a contract was awarded for the replacement of the
badly deteriorated concrete deck of the north viaduct with an epoxy asphalt-surfaced
steel orthotropic deck providing wider traffic lanes and sidewalks, the latter separated from the roadway by steel barriers. On site there was little activity visible
to the travelling public with some preparatory work visible beneath the structures,
but the greatest activity was in one of the local fabricating plants where a start was
made on the new deck units.
In the area of bridge steelwork this has been a year devoted largely to medium-
and long-span bridging; notable are Terrace South Bridge, Kitwanga Bridge, Clearwater River Bridge, and Lions Gate Bridge modifications. The majority of the
above, and indeed the majority of the approximate 5,000 tons of steel fabricated,
has been done to consulting engineering drawings. Involvement of our quality control staff during fabrication has assured uniform high quality workmanship.
Inspection of the plant manufacture of precast prestressed- and post-tensioned-
concrete bridge members was continued throughout the year. Total production
included 537 box girders or 21,150 lineal feet, 143 I-beams or 9,124 lineal feet,
some 3,570 lineal feet of hollow concrete piling and 3,080 lineal feet of solid concrete piling, 469 deck slab units, 99 panel units, 22 curb units, 44 sidewalk units,
44 parapet units, and 22 leg units.
Nineteen bridge decks totalling 135,100 square feet were resurfaced and five
bridge decks totalling 5,000 square feet were partially resurfaced during 1974-75
by application of a thin concrete overlay. Thirteen bridges were restored by patching and joint restoration was completed on six bridges.
It is gratifying to note that the accident level on bridge construction was
remarkably low.
In spite of strikes and shortages, the various staffs of Bridge Construction kept
extremely busy but for the first time in several years, no summer help in the form
of civil engineering students or graduate technicians were hired.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
As usual the field staff is augmented by consultant staff who are generally only
responsible for construction inspection of consultant designed structures. About
35 per cent of the projects were consultant inspected.

HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
N. R. Zapf.
Construction Branch personnel were kept busy during
the 1974/75 fiscal year by a full program of capital construction. Some 30 projects were in progress with a total
expenditure for the fiscal period of $27,060,429.
The 30 projects in progress represented 199.61 miles
under construction with a total value of approximately
$95,000,000. New contracts were awarded on 12 projects
totalling 77.72 miles and nine projects were completed
for 50.52 miles. A further nine projects are continuing
into the 1975/76 fiscal period and approximately
$33,000,000 is required to complete them.
Construction Branch crews supervised an additional
11  major day-labour projects and two location surveys
for the Design and Surveys Branch.
A late and wet spring hampered the start of the construction season in most
areas of the Province.   Conditions improved by mid-summer and this, coupled with
a fairly dry autumn, resulted in reasonably good progress on most projects.    Some
paving, however, had to be carried over to the spring of 1975.
Some important highway projects under construction are summarized below:
Grading on the Trans-Canada Highway through West Vancouver is virtually
complete.    Horseshoe Bay to 28th Street is open to four-lane traffic with the rest
remaining two-lane pending completion of several overpass structures expected to
be available this coming summer.
Further east on the Trans-Canada Highway, work has progressed favourably
on the four-lane development from the junction of Highway 9 to Hope. One project
will be paved and opened to traffic before fall. A further difficult section at Floods
has recently been awarded and work has commenced. It involves a major railway
relocation to make room for the four-laning of the highway and special construction
in the Fraser River.
On the northern end of Vancouver Island, two more contracts involving 19.75
miles of difficult construction have been awarded on the route from Sayward to
Woss Camp. Only two more sections remain to be called to complete the Island
Highway to Port McNeill. The section from Nimpkish Lake to Woss Camp will
be paved and opened to the travelling public this summer.
Reconstruction of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway 16 between McBride and Tete Jaune is nearing completion. Paving will be completed on the final
15-mile section in the spring of 1975.
Details of all projects as well as some statistics of interest follow.

HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1974/75
REPORT OF SENIOR PAVING ENGINEER
The 1974/75 paving season got off to an early start
in the southern part of the Province but was delayed
in northern areas due to very cool weather conditions.
Favourable weather conditions were experienced throughout the remainder of the season.
The prediction of an asphalt shortage materialized in
early summer with limited interest shown by suppliers
tendering on purchase orders. The calling of paving contracts was temporarily suspended until asphalt supply could
be assured. This delay resulted in having a large carryover of continuing projects into the 1975 paving season.
The price of liquid asphalt increased approximately
35 per cent. Due to a similar or greater price increase in
D.F.Martin. heating fuels the contract unit prices showed marked in
creases (asphalt concrete pavement in place 45 per cent average increase over 1973
average prices). The earlier practice of using Type A asphalt in the cooler areas
of the Province was continued. A Type C asphalt was approved for use on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland area where temperature susceptibility was
not a controlling factor.
Approval was granted to two contractors to use "Drum Mixers" in lieu of
conventional asphalt plants on a trial basis. Preliminary observations of final results
indicate a satisfactory product; however, further testing is required before final
approval can be considered.
In summary, a total of 234 miles of highway was paved under contract. In
addition, Paving Branch crews roadmixed 99.35 miles, surface-treated 237 miles,
and shoulder-treated 190 miles.
Total expenditure for the fiscal year amounted to $21,343,800.

 REPORT OF CHIEF HIGHWAY ENGINEER
REPORT OF SENIOR TRAFFIC ENGINEER
B 73
J. H. Harding.
During the past year, activity again increased in the
Province and the number of vehicles using British Columbia highways was significantly higher than in the previous
year. The Traffic Branch continued to co-operate with
individuals and organizations in the associated fields of
traffic safety, traffic planning, standardization of traffic
control devices, and traffic operations.
The Senior Traffic Engineer again represented the
Department on the British Columbia Safety Council, the
St. John Ambulance Highway First Aid Committee, the
Roads and Transportation Association Council on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada, and the Roads
and Transportation Association Committee on Traffic
Operations.
Short-duration annual traffic counts were taken with automatic equipment at
approximately 700 locations throughout the Province. Traffic volumes are recorded
continuously throughout the year at 21 additional locations and seven of these
recorders count traffic separately for each direction of travel. A further 150 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 450 "loops" have already been installed at almost 130
count stations on Vancouver Island and in the Lower Mainland. The program will
be continued this summer.
Summer daily traffic volumes for 1974 show approximately 56,000 vehicles
on the Port Mann Bridge, 62,000 vehicles on First Narrows Bridge, 61,000 vehicles
on Pattullo Bridge, 74,000 vehicles on Oak Street Bridge, and 53,000 vehicles in
the George Massey Tunnel. Data from the permanent count stations showed
traffic increases in 1974 over 1973 of approximately 6 per cent in the Northern and
6 per cent in the Southern Interior, 2 per cent in the Fraser Valley, and 7 per cent
on Vancouver Island.
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 included widening, channelization, signing, and signal revisions
to give greater capacity, eliminate hazards, and generally improve the flow of traffic.
Numerous highway design plans were reviewed to ensure that intersections
and interchanges would function well under actual traffic conditions.
Traffic signals were designed and installed at 30 intersections throughout the
Province. Flashing beacons were installed at four intersections. Approximately
800 street-lighting luminaires were installed at intersections, highway interchanges,
and ferry-landings.   Electrical design work done in connection with the construction
 B 74
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
of existing ones was done. Three electrical technicians were fully employed with the
preparation and maintenance of signal equipment and traffic counters in the Victoria
electrical shop and with installation and maintenance of electrical traffic information
and control installations throughout the Province.
Two railway grade crossings were signalized in co-operation with the Federal
Railway Transport Committee and the railways under the committee's jurisdiction.
In an effort to reduce accidents on Provincial highways a general lowering of
speed limits was undertaken in October and November in consultation with the
Highway Safety Engineer. The maximum freeway speed was set at 60 m.p.h. and
a 55 m.p.h. limit was established for most main highways. Vancouver Island and
some other areas with high traffic and accident potential were posted at 50 m.p.h.
The new limits will be subject to ongoing review as part of the Department's over-all
program of pinpointing and eliminating trouble spots and upgrading and modifying
highways.
A number of other 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.

TRANSPORTATION SECTION
The Transportation Section undertook planning
studies of major transportation networks in 30 urban areas.
The purpose of these studies was to identify present and
future transport corridors as they may be required for
future or improved access to developable areas or to accommodate changes in the intensity of land utilization.
These communities ranged in size from 3,000 to 50,000
people. Of the 30 studies cited above, 25 were continued
from the previous years, and five new studies were initiated.
The procedure in these studies comprised the presentation
of a statement of the Department's planning philosophy
which involves the management and control of urban travel
and the preparation of preliminary network proposals.
These presentations were given to officials from the municipal and regional governments concerned, together with representatives from other
Government departments and involved agencies. This was followed by ongoing
communications and meetings aimed at accomplishing a network plan which best
met the concerns and priorities of the participating agencies and the citizens who
employ them. For this type of planning, it is not possible to define an end point
where work on the plan ceases, since the impact of new land development proposals
have to be tested against the network plan. Consequently, the planning process
once initiated tends to remain active for several years in areas of rapid urbanization.
The practice of tracing travel patterns by using licence-plate numbers was
continued and 16 such studies were conducted. Of these, nine were concerned
with vehicle travel into, out of, and through urban communities, while seven were
conducted to evaluate the use of major corridors during the hours of peak commuter
travel. This procedure involved no interference with the travelling public and gave
direct information on urban travel patterns.
The program of evaluating inter-regional travel on the primary highway system
was continued and at two strategic locations, the travelling public was interviewed
to supply information on trip origin, destination, home base, travel purpose, vehicle
type, and number of vehicle occupants. In addition, special surveys were conducted
at 13 weigh-scales throughout the Province and over 600 person-hours of information was recorded. At those weigh-scales which operate on a 24 basis, interviews
were also conducted for 24 consecutive hours. This information included the names
of the carrier, form of licensing, axle configuration, and weight of each vehicle,
origin, destination, and commodity carried. The purpose of both surveys was to
improve the understanding of current inter-regional travel and they form a substantial part of the analytical procedures used to evaluate future development
requirements for inter-regional roads. This analysis included both the volumes of
persons and the weights of vehicles using the primary highway system.
The screenline counting program initiated in the Greater Vancouver areas in
1972 and in the Victoria area in 1973 was extended to include five other urban communities. The data comprised a direct record of person and vehicle movements
across physical, land use, and jurisdictional boundaries. These records monitor
commuter travel, and travel trends are assessed on a yearly basis.  These data were
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
B 77
recorded at 376 observation points and comprised over 2,200 person hours of
observations.
A substantial number of traffic counts were recorded at a wide variety of land
uses, including shopping centres, single and multiple family dwellings, office towers,
fast food outlets, and several other types of traffic generating land uses. This information is of assistance in evaluating the incremental impact of similar land developments on adjoining transport networks in other urban areas. Over 400 person-hours
of such data were collected and analysed.
In addition to the above counting program and interview studies, vehicles were
classified as to type, distinguishing passenger cars, trucks of various axle configurations, buses, campers, vehicles with trailers, etc., at 18 observation points in urban
locations. This was a part of the study of goods movements and supplementary to
the interviews in weigh-scales described above.
During the year, a turnover rate of 66 per cent was experienced for the technician staff while the professional remained unchanged.
APPROVING SECTION
The Approving Office, together with the various regional and district offices,
dealt with 1,503 ordinary subdivisions, 421 controlled-access subdivisions, 5,191
ordinary driveway applications, 674 controlled-access driveway applications, 757
rezoning and land-use contract by-laws, 180 setback permit applications, 3,252
utility permit applications, and 452 miscellaneous permit applications.
Total volume of numbers of subdivision and permits was lower, largely because
of the impact of Agricultural Land Reserves and the expansions of Kelowna and
Kamloops cities. Complexity of subdivision review increased, however, and a trend
was noted toward subdivision of hillsides because of the agricultural land protection.
MUNICIPAL PROGRAMS SECTION
In the fiscal year 1974/75 the Municipal Programs Section administered funds
in the amount of $1,465,007 for capital works, and $161,132 for maintenance work
on secondary highways. Negotiations were conducted with seven municipalities
concerning cost-sharing with bridge replacement, and with 22 municipalities
regarding cost-sharing for improvements to arterial highways. Changes in route
classification were considered in 34 municipalities.
SYSTEMS PLANNING SECTION
The project status information system was maintained and expanded. Projects
for the annual capital construction estimates were incorporated and reports produced. The system was extended to include expenditures on all major projects
from 1958 to 1973. These data were analysed to produce cash-flow projections and
trends for future planning.
Some areas of maintenance management were statistically evaluated and
research continued on pavement roughness. A quality control specification for
roughness on new pavements, measured by a 6-foot straight edge, is being investigated.
The major road network in the Province was photographed using the new
photoscanner built for the Department by B.C. Research. The scanner incorporates
the latest electronic components and new optics to produce an improved picture
of the roadway and 11 informative instruments. New instruments include a grade
meter, a directional compass, and a galvanic skin resistance level and response meter.

REPORT OF GEOTECHNICAL AND MATERIALS TESTING BRANCH
Demand for services of the Geotechnical and Mate-
^^^^^^^^^ rials Branch built up to an overload in 1974. Some
requests for services had to be refused, but mainly the
excess demand was met by the extensive use of geotechnical
and materials inspection consultants, and by contracting
out drilling work which could not conveniently be postponed.
ROUTE SURVEY INVESTIGATION
Advice was given on potential problems such as heavy
cut and fill, materials types, potential slope instability, and
aggregate resource possibilities for 42 projects by means of
preliminary air-photo evaluation and subsurface investigations.
j. w.G.Kerr. Projects of note in 1974 included subsurface evalua
tion for the widening, relocation, and reconstruction of the Lougheed Highway (7)
and the Island Highway (1 and 19) in Region 1; reconstruction of highways for the
Kelowna grid roads, the Penticton Bypass, and in Kamloops East in Region 2; proposed construction of the highway from Kinnaird to Meadow Siding in Region 3;
and major reconstruction projects on Highway 16 from Kasiks to Telegraph Point to
Tyee, and Tabor Lake to Prince George; on Highway 97 from Parsnip River to Pine
Pass and on the approaches to the Kiskatinaw River bridge. In addition, air-photo
investigations were conducted by headquarters staff for sections of the Coquihalla
route and the proposed new highway from Kitwanga to Meziadin Lake. Supplementary investigations for a high fill with underwater foundation for new construction from Waneta to 7 Mile Dam on the Pend-d'Oreille River was assigned to
Thurber Consultants, including overwater drilling which exceeded our capacity to
perform in time. Crippen Engineering Limited received an assignment to investigate
slope instability at Port Alice and recommended remedial measures. A request for
soil survey for a relocation of Highway 101, north of Langdale, could not be undertaken; the Design and Survey Branch retained a consultant to do this work.
SUBDIVISION INVESTIGATION
This service was expanded in the past year to fulfil a need, by the Departments
of Municipal Affairs, Housing, Lands Branch Special Services, and the Department
of Highways Approving Officers, for geotechnical consultation in the fields of urban
expansion, Crown land subdivisions, and municipal subdivisions. Fourteen major
studies were completed in 1974 taking an average of 60 man-days to complete
each project. In addition, advice was provided at the regional level on geotechnical
conditions effecting 21 other subdivisions. These studies were in many cases
required for preliminary assessment of the feasibility of proposals and for identification of potential problems related to terrain, groundwater, and foundation conditions; general slope stability and geological hazards. Areas requiring further study
were defined and terms of reference for the employment of specialist consultants
suggested.
Major projects that were investigated included:
Merritt Subdivision—a project which was largely concerned with implications of the proposed subdivision on existing groundwater movement
and related stability problems in an adjoining subdivision.
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
B 79
Burns Lake Urban Expansion—recommendations on soils, slope stability,
and terrain conditions were made to the Department of Municipal
Affairs to be used for planning the proposed expansion of the
townsite.
Vanderhoof Subdivision Project—required the most extensive program of
subsurface exploration—10 diamond drill holes—to investigate soil
conditions, slope stability, and groundwater conditions in lacustrine
materials.
Terrace Urban Expansion—field investigations were started on a large
area soil survey involving much of the City of Terrace and near the
neighbouring community of Thornhill.
Other projects of note included proposed Department of Housing subdivisions
at Whistler Mountain, Port Edward, Kamloops, and Marigold in Saanich as well
as a Lands Branch subdivision within the Municipality of Kitimat.   Site conditions
and geological hazards varied from problems of foundation on peat at Port Edward
to flooding at Whistler Mountain and slope instability at Kitimat.
STABILITY INVESTIGATIONS
Record winter and spring precipitation over much of the Province resulted in a
high degree of landslide activity in the first half of 1974. Old landslides were
reactiviated or showed increased movement. Many areas were under continuous
observation and remedial measures taken where necessary. The most common
corrective action in soils involved relocation of the highway and (or) installation
of horizontal drains. Control of instability in rock slopes usually involved drainage,
scaling of loose surface material, and (or) excavation of unstable rock to provide
slopes of acceptable safety.
Thirty-four earth slides adjacent to highways were investigated. In about four
instances the highway was reduced to one-lane operation or less by embankment
failures. These were on the Logan Lake Road near Kamloops, the Trans-Canada
Highway just south of Lytton, the Quesnel-Hixon Road, and the Sandon Road
near New Denver. During March 1975 a large landslide occurred 15 miles north
of Penticton, destroying the access road to the Okanagan Lake Provincial Park and
endangering Highway 97. Investigation and repair works were started immediately.
Control of slides by installing horizontal drains to remove subsurface water was
effected at Hollywood Road, and Springfield Road, Kelowna: Revelstoke East
access road; Jade Mountain near Chase; Angus Home slide near Valemount; Mad
River slide near Vavenby; and the Hastings-Barnett Highway, Burnaby.
Rock slope problems ranged from single rock falls to large areas of instability.
Tenders were called for rock excavation, bolting, shotcrete, and drainage work
to stabilize a serious rock slope condition, including a toppling failure at Ferrabee
Bluffs, Hell's Gate (Project 2340 (2)). Tendered prices were considered unacceptable because of apparently high contingency allowances. Instead a management
agreement was made with the lowest bidder and work performed on a cost-plus-fee
basis with the Department assuming responsibility for unforseen contingencies.
Between the start of excavation on August 6, 1974, and winter shut-down at the
end of November, approximately 26,300 tons of rock was removed, the slope
scaled for the winter and 125 linear feet of rock bolts installed at a cost of approximately $380,000. This represents a saving of approximately $102,000 over the
estimated cost of performing similar work at original bid prices. Working relationships between the Contractor, Edco Construction; the Consulting Engineers, Dr. D.
R. Piteau and J. W. Stewart, P.Eng.; and Department staff were good and the
 B 80 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
difficult task accomplished without injury to anyone. It is hoped to complete rock-
work by the end of June 1975.
During the progress of work on Ferrabee Bluffs damage was suffered to equipment and vehicles stationed on the outside of the highway opposite a concrete catch
wall at Slide 5. This area with high hazard and maintenance costs will be the
subject of further study aimed at devising a more stable configuration. Some
preliminary excavation work was undertaken in conjunction with the Ferrabee
Bluffs works.
Very heavy rain during the spring thaw triggered a mudslide at Agassiz Bluffs
on Highway 7 and a rockslide which closed the road for four days at Odium Bluffs.
Overburden was removed by district forces from the rock cut at Agassiz Bluffs and
a Consultant, G. E. Crippen Engineering, retained to report on the safety and
possible additional measures required to improve the safety of the rock cut at
Agassiz.
The Branch scaling crews besides assisting maintenance districts with minor
scaling work throughout the Province, undertook major clean up work at Odium,
Agassiz, and Tete Jaune. Work was also undertaken to remove approximately 3,000
cubic yards of rock from Walachin Bluffs on Highway 1 in Kamloops District.
Rockfalls at Walachin, unrelated to the area under excavation, indicate the existence
of a larger problem than originally assessed.
The Branch has purchased an AGA76 geodimeter to be used in measuring
small-scale displacement in rock at inaccessible locations. This instrument should
improve our capability for monitoring slopes with the intent of predicting imminent
rockfalls in areas of known or suspected instability.
FOUNDATION INVESTIGATIONS
During the year, 24 sites were investigated for new highway structures and
reports issued on seven bridge sites where widening was being considered or where
stability problems were encountered. To assist in providing timely service, consulting engineers were employed to report on the following bridge sites:
Coquitlam Underpass—Klohn, Leonoff Consultants.
West Twin Creek Bridge—Golder, Brawner & Associates.
Kiskatinaw River Crossing—R. M. Hardy and Associates.
Interesting sites were at Nanaimo River on the Vancouver Island Highway
where a 300-foot long structure is proposed; at Kiskatinaw River, where the
relocated Alaska Highway will cross a canyon about 200 feet deep and 700 feet
wide; and at Fort Nelson River on the Fort Simpson alignment where drilling was
done in subzero weather. During December 1974 and March 1975, foundation
investigations were also undertaken for buildings designed by the Public Works
Department. Approximately 12 such reports were issued in 1974. While many of
these were for Department of Highways Maintenance Depots, some were for large
buildings such as an extension to the B.C. Institute of Technology, Burnaby; an
extension to the B.C. Hydro Building, Victoria; and a reported Resources Building
in Victoria.
PAVEMENT EVALUATION AND DESIGN
The decentralization of pavement design to the regions has been slowed by
technical staff turnover particularly at Prince George Laboratory, which has been
without a Regional Geotechnical and Materials Engineer for the whole of 1974,
and which has suffered from the loss of several highly trained technicians.
 REPORT OF CHIEF PLANNING ENGINEER
B 81
As readily accessible granular aggregates become scarcer and road construction costs rise, good design and management of pavements to obtain maximum
benefit for expenditures has assumed increasing importance and closer liaison
between design, construction, and maintenance force has been pursued. A start
has been made to improve delineation of weak areas and to assist with remedial
maintenance of roadway sections susceptible to frost heaving and damage. It is
hoped that this work can be incorporated in the new maintenance management
program.
AGGREGATE INVESTIGATIONS
An ongoing activity of the Branch is the search for economically accessible
sources of aggregate required for highway construction and maintenance. The
increasing scarcity of gravel resources in many areas of the Province puts a
corresponding heavy burden on gravel prospecting services.
In 1974, 97 areas were investigated for gravel. The most noteworthy of these
was the very large-scale Peace River gravel study. For this investigation a complete review of the regional geology of the Peace River area was completed leading
to an inventory of gravel prospects throughout the area. Some of these prospects
were tested by airborne geophysical methods on a trial basis under an agreement
with Barringer Research Limited. A number of anomalies were recorded and will
be further evaluated on the ground in 1975 to determine the usefulness of the
airborne method of research.
GEOPHYSICAL EXPLORATION
This was the first year that electrical resistivity was used as a routine method
to investigate gravel prospects. A total of 197,000 linear feet of resistivity survey
was carried out in the Cariboo and North Peace River areas where aggregate
sources are difficult to locate. The method outlined probable gravel resources
amounting to approximately 2.8 million cubic yards in the North Peace River and
approximately 2 million cubic yards in the Cariboo.
As reported above, Barringer Research Limited were retained to carry out
E-Phase airborne resistivity surveys over eight selected prospects in the North
Peace River. A total of 984 linear miles was flown by Barringer to map 180
square miles of prospects.
Resistivity surveys were also carried out to assist the Department of Lands,
Forests, and Water Resources in locating groundwater in the vicinity of Grand
Forks and Sidney.
A total of 42,000 feet of seismic refraction survey-lines was run for the purpose of determining the depth to, and types of, subsurface soil and rock horizons.
Two thousand feet of survey was for highway relocation at Waneta, Slocan, and
Jordan River. Other surveys were carried out to assist in the interpretation of
drilling for bridges, foundation designs at Whitehouse Creek, Crofton, and Englishman River, Parksville, and seismic information was obtained at Angus Home slide,
at Blue River, to assist in locating drainage holes. Seismic surveys were also performed in Victoria to aid in building foundation design for the Department of Public Works and site planning for the Department of Housing. Ten thousand feet of
survey were run for the B.C. Railway between Dease Lake and the Stikine River to
assist in railroad location and estimation of excavation quantities.
Electronic equipment to monitor ground vibrations was purchased and used
to monitor blasting levels on construction Project 2486 on Highway 1 between
Highway 9 and Wahleach Power Station to protect Trans Mountain Oil pipe-line.
 B 82 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
The vibration monitoring instrumentation was later used to monitor blasting levels
at Hells Gate.
The time required to process geophysical data was reduced and more timely
information supplied as a result of the acquisition early in 1974 of a Hewlett Packard 9830 programmable calculator with digitizer and plotter.
EXPLORATORY DRILLING
The Headquarters Drilling Section performed a variety of projects in 1974.
Jobs ranged from seismic correlation, site investigations, route locations, subdivisions and building foundations, to drainage installations.
The majority of jobs were handled by four truck-mounted B.B.S.-17A diamond drills. In situations which presented difficult access problems, cranes, barges,
tracked-vehicles, or skids had to be used to move drills onto hole sites. Two of the
more difficult drilling jobs were Terrace Bridge pier, which required the recovery
of concrete cores for purposes of determining the quality of concrete used in the
pier. The job was handled quickly and efficiently using a light B.B.S.-l diamond
drill, lowered into position by a crane. A special double tube-core barrel was used
to obtain maximum core recovery, which was of paramount importance in determining the concrete quality. For exploration of the material below the bed of the
Skeena River between Tyee and Kasiks River on Highway 16 one of our heavier
B.B.S.-l 7A's was used mounted on the Branch portable pontoon barge. This was
a long, arduous job, complicated by river traffic, strong currents, and fluctuating
water levels in the tidal zone.
Our diamond drill units accomplished a total of 10,431 linear feet of drilling
and associated soil-sampling during the season. In addition, 2,107 linear feet of
rock were cored and shipped to Victoria for inspection by the geological staff, for
a total of 12,538 linear feet of drilling.
New equipment purchased during this year was an Aardvark cat-mounted
horizontal drill which has seen extensive service installing horizontal drains in
areas of slope failures in soils throughout the Province, a B.B.S.-37A diamond drill,
the newest model in its class, and a Versa drill mounted on a Case 350 wide-tracked
tractor for soils survey in Region 1.
ROUTINE QUALITY CONTROL AND TESTING
All laboratories were engaged in a heavy program of routine field inspections
and quality control testing, for concrete design, supply, and placement and other
materials such as paints, lumber, or galvanized steel products for various Government agencies. Although not spectacular, this work is very important in maintaining standards of materials contracted for, or supplied to the Government either
under contract or by purchase order, representing a significant capital expenditure.
SPECIAL STUDIES
Since the problem of poor quality wearing surfaces of portland cement concrete bridges is a general one in North America, this Branch in close conjunction
with the Bridge Construction section has in the last year critically assessed the design, mixing, placing, and curing phases of bridge deck placement. The critical
evaluation of selected bridges will continue for several years. In the allied field
our staff has continued to assess all the Provincial concrete bridge decks and advise
the bridge maintenance group which bridges require repair, the type of repair, and

the urgency. Between these two activities it is hoped that the structures of steel and
concrete will be protected for many years longer.
A Province-wide study of all larger culverts was largely completed. The problems that have occurred in the past will be summarized so that measures can be
taken to prevent similar ones in future.
In Region 1, a special pavement study was done on two FastBus routes—
Lougheed Highway and Deep Cove to Park Royal. The primary concern has been
to strengthen the stopping areas and make them cleaner for bus passengers.
Many of the anticipated technical problems in the resurfacing of the Lions
Gate Bridge were reviewed in co-operation with the Bridge Branch and their consultant. Because of the special materials used and their behaviour, bending and
wear tests were performed in the Victoria laboratory to confirm original theoretical
proposals.
Field-testing of temperature sensing and temperature recording equipment
at McBride and Port Mann has been largely completed. The practical limitations
encountered have hopefully been overcome by changes in electronics. A report on
prediction of road icing conditions is expected by summer 1975, after field data
records have been reviewed.
Our specialist on working environment has continued his assessment of any
areas where chemicals and chemical fumes may be a hazard. Requests from various
departments followed by discussion has helped with reduction of potential health
hazards, by acquainting the staff involved with both the hazards and the necessary
precautions.
Two research projects involving the examination of hog fuel as lightweight fill
material and the cataloging of geotechnical investigations performed by the Branch
since its inception have been pursued as opportunity arose but has been restricted
by heavy workload required for immediate operations.
STAFF RECRUITMENT AND TRAINING
Recruitment and training of staff has become a serious problem as some of our
key staff have been lost to other Provincial Government departments or private
industry.

REGIONAL REPORTS
HIGHWAY DISTRICT REPORTS
REGION 1
(P. J. Carr, Regional Highway Engineer, Burnaby)
Saanich, Nanaimo, Courtenay, North Vancouver, New Westminster, and
Chilliwack Highway Districts
Saanich District
Roads
Maintenance—No unusual conditions were experienced which thus permitted
an orderly accomplishment of district activities. Snow removal was the only exception to normal, an example being temperature drops to near freezing requiring
a 100 per cent increase in salt tonnage. A four-man crew is now established at
Port Renfrew to provide a good level of service for the area.
Traffic islands and channelization were completed at seven major intersections
in conjunction with highway and electrical projects.
A nursery is being developed to provide stock for the landscaping activity
which this year provided—2,000 tulip bulbs, 4,000 shrubs, and 150 ornamental and
evergreen trees.   Six picnic tables were placed at Swartz Bay.
Construction—The district forces reconstructed 3.5 miles of the West Coast
Road, Highway 14, and reconstructed with paving 5.65 miles of local roads.
Crushed gravel was supplied and delivered to Mayne and Pender Islands. No-
post guard-rail was manufactured and placed at various locations on the Trans-
Canada Highway 1. Drainage systems were installed at the Thetis Interchange and
ditching was done on the Luxton Road. Major asphalt patching was done on the
Trans-Canada Highway 1 and the Patricia Bay Highway 17 where storm drains
were installed at the Sayward Road junction and shoulders widened.
Bridges
The district crew completed Project 844, Millstream Bridge, and most materials have been purchased for Project 940, McKenzie Bridge. A new log-stringer
bridge (Shinrock) was constructed over Shawnigan Creek and a new bridge (Glen
Forest) has replaced twin undersized multiplate culverts.
Buildings
The district crew completed renovations to the Langford assembly room,
stockman's office and the mechanical foreman's office. The concrete pad for steel
storage was extended and the building for the manufacture of no-post guard-rail
was extended.
Nanaimo District
Roads
Maintenance—A program of roadmix paving was carried out in all parts of
the district and a plantmix pavement program carried out in the Greater Nanaimo
area.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 101
Drainage improvements were accomplished in all foremen's areas following a
scheduled program.
No-post guard-rail was manufactured at Cassidy, Department of Highways
yard, and a continued program undertaken to replace deteriorated wood and metal
guard-rail with no-post concrete installations.
Continued rapid subdivision growth created the need for upgrading of many
drainage structures. The volume was 1,084 permits for works on Crown land, 65
controlled access applications, 506 subdivision applications, 40 land-use contracts.
Construction—Hilliers Road was widened in preparation for recap paving at
a future date.
A new access route to Port Alberni was partially constructed to be continued
next year.
Snow removal—The snowfall was not extreme. However, the continual change
from thaw to freeze created a maintenance problem resulting in a heavier use of
salt than in previous years. Heavy snow conditions and a number of snowslides
were encountered on the Alberni-Tofino Highway with resultant minor closures
taking place. The access road to Green Mountain ski resort was given constant
attention and was open every week-end.
Bridges
The Bear Bridge and the Garmus Bridge on the Tzouhalem Road were rebuilt
to carry logging traffic to a new sawmill. The Cooks Bridge was rebuilt on Bruce
Avenue, Harewood, and a sidewalk installed. The Meade Creek Bridge at Lake
Cowichan was rebuilt and the river channel cleared of gravel deposits. Deck
systems on a number of minor bridges were renewed.
Buildings
A one-bay storage shed was constructed in the Duncan yard,
shed was constructed on Gabriola Island.
A salt storage
Ferries
Gabriola Island and Thetis Island ferries maintained normal service with some
minor delays due to storm conditions. Traffic volume continued to increase on
both ferry runs with extremely large influx of traffic during the summer.
Courtenay District
Roads
Maintenance—Usual maintenance was carried out on all roads.
Due to gravel shortage on Hornby Island, 8,000 tons of %-inch crushed gravel
was barged on to the island.
Numerous roads in the district were improved by minor realignment, gravelling,
and ditching.
Highway 19 (Oyster Bay) was eroded by high tides and ocean storms. Quarried
rock was hauled in to protect the highway.
In November and December there were periods of heavy rain resulting in
numerous flooding problems affecting private property.
Among other phases of maintenance a garbage truck for litter pick up was
initiated and proved highly satisfactory.
 B 102
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
Approximately 600 feet of wooden sidewalk was replaced or renewed at Winter
Harbour on the West Coast.
Construction—Cumberland: To prevent heavy traffic passing through a heavily
built-up residential area on a narrow road, 4,000 feet of new road was built as an
alternative.   This was located between the Village of Cumberland and Comox Lake.
Campbell River: Approximately 1,000 feet of newly constructed road was
built on Ninth Avenue requiring considerable fill and 12Vi per cent grades were
necessary. This was formerly unopened road allowance which will now complete
a bypass of the business section for a portion of the north-south traffic.
Tsable River Bridge: Approximately 4,000 feet of reconstruction on Highway
19 south of Courtenay was completed to route traffic over the newly constructed
Tsable River Bridge.
Alert Bay: Six hundred feet of concrete retaining wall was constructed on
Cormorant Island. This fronted the Nimpkish Indian Band property and was
adjacent to a public road that was being eroded by ocean storms. Labour was
provided by LIP program with Department of Highways providing material and
supervision.
Paving—Roadmix-type asphalt was completed by Department forces on the
following roads: Hornby Island, 1.9 miles; Courtenay area, 4.68 miles; Campbell
River area, 1.58 miles; Zeballos, 1 mile.
Machine-laid hotmix asphalt from district funds was laid in Courtenay area for
6.58 miles and Campbell River, 0.5 mile.
Bridges
Decks were repaired or renewed on the following bridges: Rennison, Dove
Creek, Black Creek, Quinsam, and Port Alice 2.
Minor repairs were made to the Gold River Bridge, Buttle Narrow Bridge, old
Tsable River Bridge, and Mohun Creek Bridge. New deck and cross ties were
added to Webb Creek Bridge. Gold River bridges (separate bridge for each direction of travel) were paved with machine laid asphalt.
Buildings
New heating systems were installed at the Campbell River crew assembly room
and relocated foreman's office.
Cortes Island equipment shed, crew assembly room, and foreman's office were
completed.
Courtenay road foreman offices were remodelled and Courtenay main office
underwent revisions that included building a conference room.
Two trailer sites on Quadra Island were constructed complete with well and
septic tank in a gravel pit area for employees.
Ferries
All ferries operated on schedule except for minor interruptions caused by
mechanical problems or severe storms.
(1) Albert J. Savoie—Hornby Island.
(2) Klitsa—Denman Island.
(3) Comox Queen—Comox-Westview (also Queen of the Islands during the summer).
(4) Texada Queen—Texada Island.
(5) Quadra Queen II—Quadra Island.
(6) Cortes Queen—Cortes Island.
(7) Nimpkish—Port McNeill-Alert Bay-Sointula.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
North Vancouver District
B 103
Roads
Maintenance—This year there was a fairly extensive program to repair damage
to surfaces as a result of heavy frost from the previous winter. On Highway 99,
between Whistler and Pemberton, on several sections, drainage was improved and
pavement overlays were placed where pavement had been badly heaved. On the
Pemberton Meadows Road, some lengthily sections of badly broken pavement were
overlaid with a grader-mixed asphalt. Also, extensive gravelling was undertaken
over a mile section on the northerly portion of Pemberton Meadows Road where
the road failed frequently due to the lack of base and heavy logging truck traffic.
Some shoulder paving was undertaken on Highway 99, north of Horseshoe Bay,
to fill in unpaved gaps between previously paved sections at guard-rail locations.
This work eliminated many difficulties to maintain areas of gravel shoulder. To
reduce shoulder grading and oiling, where trucks utilized the shoulders on heavy
grades in the Cheakamus Canyon section of Highway 99, some shoulder paving
was done where width permitted. Between Horseshoe Bay and Lions Bay on
Highway 99, to reduce the hazards of rock-fall, several high rock faces were scaled.
The winter this year was not particularly severe and few minor problems arose in
snow-clearing operations. The heavy snowbelt through the Whistler area had an
average snowfall of 282 inches this year.
The winter was very mild with below-average snowfall on the Sunshine Coast.
No major problems were encountered. Spring flooding was minimal and again
there were no major problems.
Construction—On Highway 99, between Garibaldi and Mons (18 miles),
considerable rock work was carried out for widening and minor alignment improvements, as part of a continuing project to upgrade for eventual repaving of this section. Reconstruction and paving of the Pemberton Portage Road was completed
between Birkenhead Bridge and White Creek. On the Pemberton Meadows Road,
1.5 miles of shoulder widening was completed to provide a safe walking area for
school-children. A difficult widening project on Eagle Cliff Road, Bowen Island,
was about 80 per cent completed this year. Due to the close proximity of housing,
rock blasting on this project was very touchy and slow. However, it progressed
without incident. Intersection improvements were undertaken on Highway 99 at
the Squamish access road where channelization and lighting were provided. On
Highway 1 at Lloyd Avenue, deceleration lanes were provided and a median installed to prohibit left turns and cross traffic.
Major day labour involving 25 miles of highway work was carried out on the
Sunshine Coast Highway and the Port Mellon Highway in preparation for a paving
contract. Minor reconstruction was carried out on side roads throughout the
district.   Approximately 4 miles of new pavement was laid during the year.
Bridges
Lonetree Creek Bridge and Strachan Creek Bridge were both redecked this
year and the approaches repaved. Extensive work was necessary to provide detours
at the structures, utilizing Bailey bridges and traffic signals for one-way traffic control. Minor repairs and redecking was undertaken on several other bridges in the
district and considerable riprap protection work was undertaken on the Rubble
Creek Bridge to restore the channel that was extensively eroded during an unusual
extreme high water in August.
 B 104 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
Buildings
Minor alterations, some lighting and heating improvements were done at the
Squamish and Pemberton maintenance establishments. At Alta Lake, a new three-
bay equipment building was completed and occupied by the additional maintenance
crew established in the Whistler area earlier this year.
Engineering and technical work has increased considerably as we are now
handling all subdivisions, permits, etc., from the Gibsons Office. Accommodation
has been investigated but not obtained to date.
Ferries
Much of the ferry-landing at Woodfibre was rebuilt.
New Westminster District
Roads
Maintenance—All roads within the district were maintained with the regular
maintenance crews, who were supplemented in the summer months by extra auxiliary
employees in carrying out a great number of minor betterment projects. Extensive
effort and time was spent weeding and landscaping the three major interchanges at
Knight Street Bridge, washing and painting the George Massey Tunnel to improve
visibility. Median grading was undertaken on Trans-Canada Highway to improve
the aesthetics and maintenance.
Construction—The district undertook by day labour, site preparation and preloading of that section of Westminster Highway from Knight Street to No. 5 Road.
Work continued on approach fill to grade on the Stormont Interchange to Lougheed
Highway connection in Burnaby. Widening and paving sections of Sunnyside Road,
Anmore. Raising the north approach of Willingdon Avenue and Trans-Canada
Highway by paving and rebuilding of traffic islands. Four thousand feet of ditch
elimination and shoulder widening was done on Glover Road to improve safety for
elementary school-children. Intersection improvements were carried out at Fraser
Highway and 248th, Route 10 and 104th Street, Scott Road and 64th Street.
Shoulder paving was done for a mile on Scott Road and 2 miles on Highway 17.
Majority of the work at University Endowment Lands was paving 1 mile on
Imperial, 1 mile on Northwest Marine Drive in the Spanish Banks area and recapping 16th Avenue.   Some median improvement was done on Chancellor Boulevard.
Traffic signals and lighting were installed on Route 99a at Clearbrook Road
access, Route 99a at Crescent Road, Route 10 and 57th Street, Route 10 and 62nd
Street, and Route 1a at 184th Street.
Bridges
General maintenance was carried out on all bridges with a large proportion of
time being spent on concrete deck patching.
A start was made on the construction of a fish ladder to assist spawning fish
through a large culvert under loco Road.
Three or four members of the bridge crew were loaned to North Vancouver
to assist in the building of two bridges at Port Mellon and Bailey bridge work on
Highway 99.

The traffic usage for both the Albion ferry and the Barnston Island ferry was
up, with the Albion ferry undergoing a special refit and major engine overhaul.
Both landings for the Albion ferry were rebuilt.
Chilliwack District
Roads
Maintenance—District roads were well maintained. Mowing was carried out
during the growing season. Litter was picked up daily during the summer months
and when required during the rest of the year. Signs were maintained to a high
standard.   Oil was applied to approximately 15 miles of road to control dust.
Construction and reconstruction—Construction of roads and building sites
for tourist rest areas and information centres was commenced at Bradner Road and
Lickman Road adjacent to the Trans-Canada Highway 1; 4.9 miles of gravel road
were reconstructed.   Construction and realignment of 1 mile of Sylvester was started.
Bituminous surfacing—District crews paved 5.34 miles of road and recapped
5.4 miles. Asphalt curbing was removed from the edge of the travelled lanes on
Highway 9 between the Trans-Canada Highway and the Fraser River. Shoulders
were paved and curbing replaced for a distance of 0.9 mile.
Snow removal—Snowfall was close to normal. Roads were ploughed and
sanded as required, and kept in good condition. Snowfall on Hemlock Valley Road
was heavy, approximately three times the average over the rest of the district.
Bridges
The district bridge crew reconstructed two 12-foot box culverts, one on Rockwell Drive and one on Carratt Road. A 15-foot long culvert was constructed on
Morris Valley Road. Ties, decking, and railing were renewed on Tollard Bridge.
Repairs were carried out on the mechanism which operates the Harrison River
Bridge swing span. Routine maintenance was carried out as required on bridges
throughout the district.
REGION 2
(R. G. White, Regional Highway Engineer, Kamloops)
Kamloops, Salmon Arm, McBride, Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton, Merritt,
Lillooet, and Williams Lake Highway Districts
Kamloops District
Roads
Maintenance—Emphasis was placed on increased and improved maintenance
in all foremen's areas. This included signing, painting, placement of new guardrail, gravelling, grading, and ditching. District forces built 13.93 miles of dykes
within the Kamloops city limits due to impending flood threat, thus delaying normal
spring maintenance, as well as intended projects. This past winter was one of the
longest experienced, requiring extensive ploughing and sanding as well as twice the
normal tonnage of chemicals. A minimum of inconvenience was experienced by
the travelling public.
 B  106 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
Extensive drainage facilities were installed in both the Barnhartvale and
Rayleigh areas to ensure that they were functional prior to reverting to city
administration.
Construction—Kamloops district crews and hired equipment constructed 13.93
miles of dykes prior to high water for flood control. A surface drainage system in
Barnhartvale and Rayleigh areas was constructed, using 6,500 feet of culvert and
7 miles of ditching. Highway reconstruction and improvements by district crews
and hired equipment completed during the year totalled 13.90 miles. Other minor
improvements totalled 14.85 miles. The bridge crew constructed salt sheds at
Heffley and Little Fort.
Bridges
The bridge foreman inspected all bridges during the year, and necessary
maintenance work carried out. Bridges 257 Barriere Town, 6285 Boulder, 6283
Chu Chua, 866 Clearwater River were reconstructed with Bailey bridges. Bailey
bridges were erected for temporary detours on 6240 Fortune Overpass and 2386
Valleyview Drive Overpass.
Ferries
The McLure and Little Fort ferries were put back into service after the ice
left the North Thompson River and again after high-water. Worn out items were
replaced, and repairs carried out on both ferries.
Salmon Arm District
Roads
Maintenance—Normal maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads in the district. Slashing and brushing of rights-of-way was carried out in
the Salmon Arm, Chase, Falkland, Celista, and Sicamous areas on both main and
side roads under the summer employment program. Our dust abatement program
was increased over the previous years and 82,000 gallons of oil and 8,700 gallons
of M and F stabilizer was used. Pavement patching was a major item of maintenance due to increased deterioration of paved road surfaces. Shuswap Lake rose
to 1.5 feet below record level and caused some flood damage which was repaired
during the year.
Construction — Reconstruction of 8.9 miles of side roads was as follows:
Sorrento Eagle Bay Road 2 miles, Chase Falkland 5.8 miles, Squilax Anglemont
0.9 mile, Douglas Lake Road 0.2 mile and 9 miles of Highway 97 from Schwebs
Bridge to Falkland had the shoulders widened to 10 feet in preparation for repaving.
Snow removal—An above-average snowfall was recorded but with a two-shift
system in operation all main routes and side roads were effectively kept open and
good driving conditions prevailed.
Bridges
General maintenance was carried out on all 73 bridges in the district and one
bridge was reconstructed, namely Branchflower.
McBride District
Roads
Maintenance—The unusually deep snow-pack did not result in the expected
heavy spring run-off for which the district was prepared. Normal spring and
summer maintenance programs were carried out in most of the district.   An exten-

B  107
sive amount of pavement patching was required on Highway 16 east of Tete laune
Junction prior to the seal-coating of that section. In response to public demand
district forces placed dust pallatives on 12 miles of side road.
Construction—District forces built 1 mile sections of the Loos and Lee Roads,
as well as widened 1 mile of Highway 16 west of McBride. They also completed
one rest area and worked on two others which should be open in the summer of
1975. The last section of Highway 16 west of Tete Jaune which was under construction by contract was opened to traffic by early November. The paving on that
section will be completed in the spring of 1975.
Paving—Two resurfacing contracts, one at Avola and one at McBride added
21 miles of good pavement to the district road system. In addition to this, regional
crews seal coated approximately 45 miles of Highway 16 east of Tete Jaune and
13 miles of Highway 5 south of Tete Jaune.
Bridges
The Holmes River, Dore River, and Dore Overhead structures were opened
in the late fall and a contract was awarded for the new crossing at Horsey Creek.
The district bridge crew removed three Bailey bridges as well as inspecting
and completing the necessary minor repairs to all other bridges in the district.
Buildings
The Blue River crew moved into their new four-bay shop in late October.
Vernon District
Roads
Maintenance—Normal maintenance was carried out on all highways and side
roads throughout the district. A ditching program was undertaken, particularly in
the Vernon subregion to improve drainage in several of the larger subdivisions.
Considerable patching was again necessary to Highway 6 and 97 to restore comfortable driving. Three corrugated metal cattle passes were installed on Highway 6
east of Lumby to replace old wooden structures.
Subdivisions in the North Okanagan-Shuswap continues active. The Department processed 274 tentative and 148 final subdivisions. Twenty land-use contracts and 82 rezoning applications were also processed, as well as 537 permits
issued for works on Crown land.
The roadside development plant at Vernon operated by the district produced
5,510 feet of the new 27-inch no-post guard-rail and 240 feet of the 18-inch guardrail. Two hundred and three Department of Highways terrazzo-finished concrete
picnic tables were manufactured. Forty-five lamp standard bases were manufactured for the electrical division of the Traffic Branch. The fibreglass shop produced
various fibreglass forms for the guard-rail manufacturing plants throughout the
Province, including special transition forms for the new 27-inch guard-rail.
Construction —• Clearing and grubbing on a 1 mile section of the Enderby-
Mabel Lake Road was carried out and right-of-way for the remaining 4 miles of
the road is being processed for eventual reconstruction of the remaining 5 miles
of the Enderby-Mabel Lake Road. Three miles of the Westside Road were
widened, ditched, and gravelled in preparation for the eventual paving. A 1.5-mile
section of the Silver Star Road in Silver Star Park was reconstructed. A 1 mile
section of the Lumby-Mabel Lake Road was upgraded and gravelled and 6 miles
 B 108 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1974/75
of the road was surveyed and designed ready for right-of-way acquisition to complete the road from Lumby to the Mabel Lake Provincial Park at the south end of
Mabel Lake.
Paving — Contracts for plantmix asphalt in stockpile were called to provide
material to pave a total of 3.9 miles of the Canyon and Deep Creek Roads near
Enderby and the Hickman Road near Vernon.
Snow removal—Snowfall within the Vernon Highway District was again well
above average. The Enderby road crew were hard pressed from mid-December
through to February to keep all roads clear in that area of this district. The accumulated snow-pack now poses a flood threat in the Shuswap and Upper Kettle
River Watersheds.
Bridges
High-water on June 17 washed out the east approach of the Cherry Creek
Bridge on the Sugar Lake Road. Scouring under the east abutment of the span
occurred and considerable work was required to restore the east approach to the
bridge and improve the creek channel. A special wing wall was constructed to
protect the east abutment in the event of future flooding.
Ireland Creek Bridge on the Mabel Lake Road was reconstructed utilizing the
pile trestle design. Redecking of the Enderby Bridge immediately east of Enderby
on the Shuswap River was completed. Materials were purchased to redeck the
Baxter Bridge over the Shuswap River near Ashton Creek.
All remaining bridges in the district were inspected and maintained as required.
Buildings
Vernon—Landscaping and the establishment of a museum consisting of early
road construction and maintenance equipment was completed in the Vernon highway
maintenance yard.
Enderby—A site for the new highway maintenance depot was purchased at
Enderby.
Kelowna District
Roads
Maintenance—As in the previous year, the district was maintaining roads
within the new City of Kelowna. Many complaints were received concerning our
maintenance standard in this area. However, many of them were unfounded.
Residents in the new area of the City of Kelowna were very strong in their complaints
regarding paving, dust laying, drainage, snow removal, and street-cleaning.
An extensive dust-control program was carried out in the district with approximately 35 miles of road receiving a dust pallative. Hotmix recapping was done on
many of the older roads in the new City of Kelowna.
Spring flooding in the area was minimal. However, the district, under direction from the Water Rights Branch, did considerable maintenance in the creeks
prior to spring run-off.
Construction—3.5 miles of the Westside Road were reconstructed and approximately 3 miles were paved with a coldmix asphalt. On Highway 97 in the Ellison
area, approximately 0.5 mile of the highway was reconstructed and paved. Approximately 15 miles of gravel roads were improved by widening and gravelling.
Work was started on the Cunningham-Springfield Road and construction was
85 per cent completed and 1 mile paved. This was a start on a development of a
continuous road parallel and south of Highway 97 from Kelowna to Rutland.
 REGIONAL reports
B  109
Street-lighting was installed on Highway 97 between Burtch and Benvoulin Roads.
This work was under the control of the Traffic Branch.
Snow removal—The district experienced an unusually heavy snowfall during
this past year as well as severe icing conditions.   All roads were kept open.
Bridges
Routine maintenance was carried out on all bridges. A new bridge was reconstructed by district forces across Mill Creek on Bulman Road. District forces
also constructed concrete foundations for the Belgo Creek Bridge. A temporary-
pile and log-stringer bridge was constructed across Mission Creek in order that
tenders could be called for the construction of a new bridge on Highway 33, to
replace an old King truss bridge.
Penticton District
Roads
Maintenance—The early part of the year was spent completing repairs to
flood-damaged culverts and the replacement of riprap in the Keremeos-Cawston
area. Snow bulletins indicated an above-average run-off could be anticipated and
increased emphasis was placed on completion of repairs from previous floods.
Many requests for sandbags were filled and assistance was given in the Princeton-
Keremeos and Osoyoos areas. Some minor flooding did take place in the Osoyoos
area, but careful monitoring of the Okanagan Lake outflow earlier in the year
helped to minimize the problem. A successful program of emergency dyke repair
was undertaken at Keremeos, and along with Gabian construction and preliminary
work on stream banks, major flooding was prevented. The run-off was high but
for the most part under control.
Snowfall has been about average, and Hope-Princeton Highway experienced
some avalanches in the Allison Pass and Sumallo areas.
Construction—An intense program of day-labour reconstruction was carried
out on the Hope-Princeton Highway from Manning Park Lodge to 13 miles east
in order to accommodate the current surfacing contract. In this manner, 13 miles
of four-lane highway received the initial lift of asphalt. Reconstruction of Manning
Park accesses was also carried out according to Parks Branch Design. Widening
and reconstruction along the Naramata Road was undertaken and other reconstruction for anticipated resurfacing.
Surfacing—Upgrading and asphalt roadmixing took place on roads in Princeton, Keremeos, Oliver, and Penticton areas. In all, a total of 10.9 miles was
completed.   Fifty-four miles of local roads received a dust-laying treatment.
Bridges
Reconstruction and raising of several small bridges on Keremeos Creek was
carried out, some riprapping and channel work at Allison Creek on Highway 5 as
well as the assembly of several large multiplate culverts at Naramata Creek and
Chute Creek.   Reconstruction of two SOLP Bridges at Oliver was completed.
Okanagan Flood Control
Inflow into the Okanagan Lake was extremely high, but early instructions from
the Provincial hydrologist controlled the levels. High discharge was commenced
at an early date and was adjusted to help minimize flows from the Similkameen River
 B  110 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
at Oroville.    Maintenance of the drop-structures and Okanagan River Dams was
carried out and clearing of the Stilling Basins at Ellis and Shuttleworth Creeks.
Merritt District
Roads
Maintenance—A heavy spring break-up resulted in an extensive pavement
program in the lower Fraser Canyon section of Highway 1 and on Highway 5.
Several subdivision streets were repaved in the Hope and Merritt areas and
an extensive drainage program instituted in the Colletville area.
Considerable rock-scaling was undertaken in the Fraser Canyon and also on
Highway 12.
Spring flooding proved heavier than normal in the Merritt and Coalmont areas
and emergency repair work was required in several areas. Remedial riprapping
and dyking was also undertaken along the Nicola, Coldwater, and Otter Rivers.
Snow-removal activities were below normal prior to Christmas but increased
appreciably for the balance of the winter season. Seven-day shifts were in effect in
all areas and there was 24-hour coverage in the Fraser Canyon to expedite the
removal and control of avalanches. A training program in avalanche rescue technique was instituted for all foremen and personnel who could be concerned with this
type of hazard. Avalanches closed the canyon to traffic on two occasions, the longer
closure being of 80 hours' duration.
Increased emphasis was placed on rest stop maintenance and garbage pick-up.
Construction—District forces carried out reconstruction of 3.2 miles of the
Coldwater Road, 3.2 miles of Douglas Lake Road, reconstruction and paving of
1.1 miles of Chaumox Road at North Bend. Improvements also commenced on
Highway 8 involving the reconstruction of a major fill failure 1 mile south of
Lytton.   Truck-laning work south of Boston Bar was continued.
Bridges
Two timber bridges were replaced—Twin Creek Bridge on the Chaumox Road
and Anderson Bridge on the Union Bar Road. Major repairs were carried out on
several other bridges. A temporary Bailey bridge was installed to bypass the bridge
over Quilchena Creek north of Merritt to accommodate the very heavy loads involved in hauling transformers to the new B.C. Hydro substation site.
The district bridge crew undertook a great deal of the work in upgrading the
North Bend ferry.
Ferries
A major program of reconstruction was undertaken on the North Bend aerial
ferry and landings.
Service on the Lytton reaction ferry was extended to provide coverage 15 hours
per day.    Preliminary work was undertaken to reconstruct and upgrade the ferry.
Lillooet District
Roads
Maintenance—A busy maintenance program was carried out throughout the
year. In the Gold Bridge area catch roads were cleared for slide prevention; roads
around Gun Lake were widened and improved, with regravelling completed on the
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 111
Gold Bridge to Bralorne section of Highway 40. Brushing and ditching were also
carried out in this area.
In the Lillooet area the Lillooet-Pioneer Road 40 was improved and gravelled
for some 9 miles with catch roads being cleared in the Moha Canyon area where
year-round rock falls can be expected. Some 20 students were hired for district
work helping with flagging duties and brushing out minor roads. These students
proved most adaptable.
Ashcroft crews brushout, ditched, and regravelled the Hat Creek and Loon
Lake roads with emphasis being placed on the minor category roads in this district.
The North Bonaparte and Big Bar Lake Roads were improved further along with
the Empire Valley and Gang Ranch Roads by the Clinton maintenance crew.
Construction and surfacing—The Green Lake Road in the South Cariboo was
improved for another 5 miles, this necessitating some moderately heavy construction.
Four and one-half miles of road were constructed over new territory in the Turkey
Gulch Valley adjacent to Young Lake. Elsewhere in the Lillooet District, some 12
other roads had improvement and regrading work completed. Five miles of pulvi-
mix was put down on the North Green Lake road. There is now a continuous paved
road from 70 Mile House to just past the Flying "U" Ranch—a distance of some
15 miles. Six miles of pulvimix were laid down on the east end of the Loon Lake
Road, this paving being handled by the regional paving crews. Lillooet District
crews laid 2.5 miles of roadmix on the Lillooet-Cache Creek Highway with a further
6 miles of third-lane paving completed on the Highland Valley Road.
Snow Removal—The South Cariboo and Clinton area had higher than normal
snow amounts, which necessitated the use of cats in the Gang Ranch to Empire
Valley region. Rest of Lillooet District average to below-average snowfalls, with
no long holdups due to slides on the Bralorne Road. The main trunk routes were
kept mostly bare with the use of chemicals.
Ferries
The Big Bar ferry, located 60 miles northeast of Clinton on the Fraser River,
saw much use this year—both by local ranchers and hunters. The main ferry is
beached during the winter months. A cage is used on the main cable for foot
passengers only, when the ferry is out of service.
William Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—The Williams Lake Highways district crews experienced a
rather normal year of maintenance without extremes in flooding, snowfall, washouts, etc. The Bella Coola crew had to protect the highway with riprap in two areas
and did considerable gravel excavation in flooded creeks for the Water Rights
Branch. This crew too, had several small avalanches to remove during the winter,
made easier we feel, since three members of that crew were given avalanche control
courses earlier in the year.
Our Departmental communication was given a big boost with the installation of
29 additional mobile radios in our vehicles thus eliminating many miles of deadend
or deadhaul travelling.
Another 12 miles of the Cariboo Highway was fenced through Crown lands
south of 100 Mile House. Litter pick-up is on the increase as is sign vandalism and
necessary repair. Considerable slashing too was carried out on side roads, especially
in the Bridge Lake area.

B 112
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
The application of dust-laying materials was required to the extent of 16 miles
in the 100 Mile-Bridge Lake areas and 20 miles in the Williams Lake and Likely
areas.
With a light snowfall this winter and a dry spring following, the frost damage
has been minimal on pavements, with gravel and dirt roads shaping up well for
the coming season.
Construction—Major construction projects were carried out on the Chilcotin-
Bella Coola Road in the three different foremen's areas of Bella Coola, Anahim
Lake, and Alexis Creek, also on the Likely, Horsefly, Horse Lake, and 93 Mile to
Little Fort Roads.
The first 6.3 miles of the latter was finished in preparation for pulvimixing,
which was later completed.
Minor improvements were completed on over 54 miles of side roads too, with
ditching, widening, and gravelling.
In the Williams Lake foreman area an application of plantmix asphalt was
applied to 3.4 miles of Department of Lands subdivisions.
Bridges
Ten new bridges were constructed during the year. These were Dean 1, Louie,
King, Onward, Johnstone, Larson, Enterprise, Spout, Rayfield, and Waterfall. At
nine of these locations the old structures had to be removed. The tenth replacement
required removal of three 4-foot culverts as requested by the Fisheries Department.
On seven other trestle bridges a complete cross-tie and decking replacement was
necessary. Minor repairs, flushing, washing, painting, etc., were carried out on
23 other bridges
The bridge crew constructed two concrete explosives magazines, one at Williams Lake, the other at Bella Coola. An 8-foot multiplate culvert was installed at
East Branch Creek to replace a narrow bridge at that location.

Roads
Maintenance ■— Spring run-off was heavy with extensive flood damage being
experienced on district roads. Two miles of Highway 6 was partially washed out
south of Nelson, Highway 3a at Crawford Bay was cut by flood waters of Crawford
Creek, two bridges were washed out by Harrop Creek and riprap protection was
required on a number of streams to protect roads and bridges. A summer student
program was carried out, cleaning and painting bridges, slashing and clean-up of
rights-of-way and rest areas. Dust control was carried out on 60 miles of secondary
road, using MC asphalt and flake calcium chloride. Twelve miles of road was
treated with liquid calcium chloride. Screening plants operated throughout the
summer, preparing winter sand stockpiles. Material was mixed with salt during
screening operations. No-post guard-rail was installed on several highway sections,
tions.

Construction—The new road to West Creston was completed and road mixed.
Work was carried out to improve substandard sections of Highway 3a north and
south of Boswell. Reconstruction of the Whitewater access road was commenced,
with 1.6 miles being completed. Also 0.4 mile of Highway 3a at Kokanee Lodge
was reconstructed and road mixed and 2 miles of Highway 6 south of Nelson were
widened to provide a third lane; 0.4 mile of Highway 6 at South Slocan was constructed on new alignment to gravel grade; 1 mile of secondary road was constructed
and 0.6 mile reconstructed; 7 miles of road were sand sealed and 6.9 miles road-
mixed; 15 miles of highway were reshouldered.
Bridges
A 90-foot double-single chord reinforced Bailey bridge was erected over the
Salmo River at Ymir. A new bridge was constructed over Goose Creek. Extensive
repairs were carried out to South Fork Bridge on Highway 6 and on Bayonne Creek
culvert on Highway 3 as a result of flood damage and two new bridges were constructed over Harrop Creek. A new timber bridge was constructed over Sproule
Creek and a new bridge was constructed over Gray Creek using treated timber abutments and steel stringers.
Ferries
Kootenay Lake, Harrop-Longbeach, and Glade ferries operated throughout
the year. The West Creston ferry was removed from service following the completion of the new road access to West Creston. One new dolphin was driven in the
overnight berth at Balfour. Fifty-minute scheduling was again implemented during
July and August at Kootenay Lake to accommodate tourist traffic.
Rossland District
Roads
Maintenance — The Rossland Highways District was again kept very busy
throughout the year. Record snowfalls kept winter maintenance activities in effect
late into the spring season. High spring run-off caused erosion of approach fills to
the Pass Creek Bridge, washed out an 18-foot diameter multiplate on Blueberry
Creek and other minor damages.
Our beautification program continued with the assistance of the Summer
Student Employment Program; the rights-of-way were given a thorough cleaning
and brushing where necessary. Litter pick-up at rest areas and along the roadside
continued from May to October as part of our regular garbage truck schedule.
Emphasis was placed on the introduction of the maintenance management
system with the foremen recording work inventories and reporting all work on
activity sheets.
There was 16,000 lineal feet of 27-inch no-post guard-rail manufactured in
our Castlegar yard for use throughout the region. The Rossland District placed
10,500 lineal feet of the 27-inch no-post guard-rail on Highways. 3 and 3b during
this past season.
Construction—In addition to our regular maintenance schedule, the district
forces were able to complete 6 miles of roadmix asphalt and 17 miles of gravel
surfacing on minor roads.
 B 114 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
Bridges
The bridge crew constructed three 30-foot permanent-type bridges which
consisted of reinforced-concrete abutments, steel stringers, and timber decks.
A girls crew, forming part of the Summer Student Employment Program,
completed the painting of all metal bridge fence panels in the District.
Ferries
The Castlegar ferry continued routine operations through the year with few
minor delays. Even though there are two alternate routes between Robson and
Castlegar, the ferry remains constantly in use.
Buildings
In addition to their regular duties, the bridge crew erected a major salt storage
shed at our Castlegar yardsite.
Grand Forks District
Roads
Maintenance—The improvement program started on all main road rights-of-
way was continued with good success. For safety and visibility 8.3 miles of Highway 3 and 5.3 miles of Highway 33 shoulder rebuilding and removal of gravel
banks was carried out, and in some areas eliminating barrier lines by improved
visibility. The rock face at the Osoyoos Viewpoint, Mile 3.5, Highway 3, was cut
back 20 feet to improve visibility and allow more travelled surface for transports
and greatly improve the switchback. The material removed from this location was
used to repair a dangerous situation at the Haynes Creek culvert. Winter maintenance was slightly above normal but district forces maintained a good standard of
winter maintenance.
Construction—Some 4 miles of local roads in Grand Forks and Christina Lake
area reconstructed and improved and 4.5 miles of local roads were roadmixed by
district forces.
Bridges
New Carmi Bridge built in new location and structure completed to the point
of final deck surface to be applied in the spring of 1975. Roylance Bridge (log
stringer and timber) has been replaced with bridge of same design and in same
location. Steel railings on several bridges sandblasted and repainted in addition
to general maintenance on many others. McKinney Creek multi-plate culvert
extended 20 feet to improve road width.
New Denver District
Roads
Maintenance—Ditching, gravelling, sign repairs, and culvert replacement were
carried out by all road crews on various side roads in the district. An extensive dust
control program was carried out in the Lardeau, Edgewood, and Winlaw areas;
calcium chloride was applied to roads in Lardeau area and MC-0 in the Edgewood
and Winlaw areas.
Improvements were made to the roadside rest areas at Summit Lake, Falls
Creek, Fish Lake, and Bench Creek.   A regular three-person crew inspected and
 REGIONAL reports
B 115
cleaned up the six rest areas in the district during the months of June, July, and
August.
Summer crews were kept busy painting buildings and bridges throughout the
district. A summer crew was also slashing along a section of Highway 6 between
Silverton and Cape Horn. Three survey crews were formed during the summer, one
crew spent the entire summer surveying section six roads to enable right-of-way
plans to be prepared.
There were normal snowfalls throughout the district although a late spring
kept the district crews busy on winter maintenance later than usual.
Construction—Work progressed on construction projects 2615 and 2616
throughout the summer and into the fall. Project 2615 consisted of reconstruction
and widening a 11.5-mile section of Highway 31a Kaslo-New Denver. This project
has been under construction for the past two years. The work will be completed
and the 11.5 miles paved during the summer of 1975. Project 2616 consisted of
the reconstruction and widening of sections of Highway 6 Vernon-Slocan. All but
one of the sections that were reconstructed were located in the Slocan Valley. The
remaining section was on the Monashee. The construction on all sections of Highway 6 in the Slocan Valley were completed and will be paved during the summer
of 1975. Half of the proposed reconstruction on the Monashee was completed.
More work will be undertaken and a section paved during the summer of 1975.
Paving and surfacing—There were two paving contracts in the district. Contractors paved the 4.38-mile section of Highway 6 that was constructed last year to
bypass Slocan City. District crews road-mixed 5.2 miles of roads as follows:
Edgewood streets, 1.2 miles; two local roads near Nakusp, 1 mile; Passmore
Upper in the Slocan Valley, 2 miles; and the approaches to the new bridges in the
New Denver and Rosebery, 1 mile.
Bridges
Routine repairs and maintenance were carried out on bridges as required
throughout the district. Abutment protection and some channel work was completed on the Lemon Creek Bridge. Bridges over Bear Creek, Lyle Creek, Goat
Creek, and Whitewater Creek were repaired and widened in conjunction with the
reconstruction of Highway 31a Kaslo-New Denver.

ferry while it was in operation both ferries have been on a normal schedule.
Cranbrook District
Roads
Maintenance—Above normal snow-packs in the mountains during the winter
of 1973/74 led to considerable flooding of the Kootenay River in the spring.
Wasa Lake Resort area experienced severe flooding and the Kootenay-Columbia
Highway 93/95 was closed for a period of nine days, as water reached a depth of
 B 116 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
18 inches over the pavement. Numerous washouts occurred on side roads and
extensive creek channel work was required to contain Wild Horse Creek near Fort
Steele.
The Summer Student Employment Program was successful, with crews undertaking fencing and brushing programs.
General maintenance was carried out on all district roads.
Construction—An extensive day-labour program was undertaken, which included 14 miles of construction and reconstruction and 14.6 miles of roadmix
paving. Other surface treatment included 6 miles of double-flush coat and 12 miles
of calcium chloride stabilization.
Snow removal—Snowfall in the area was average for the year. Shift systems
were in effect and all roads were kept open and in good condition.
Bridges
Spring run-off created many problems and crews kept busy on log jams, abutment repairs, and riprap work. Major work was undertaken on the south abutment
of St. Mary's River Bridge, requiring 115 cubic yards of concrete. Routine inspection and maintenance was carried out on structures throughout the district.
Fernie District

including pavement patching which was about normal except for such locations
as Highway 3 Southern Trans-Provincial west of Jaffray, and on Highway 4 Elk
Valley Road. Brushing by Summer Student Employment Program. Grubbing,
as necessary, oiling, and placing calcium chloride on side roads in front of residences
to control dust. Inspection and maintenance of signs and delineator posts. All
culverts were checked and cleaned and replaced as necessary. Improvements were
undertaken on 137 Edwards Road, 136 North Star Road, 142 Stirling Road, 14
Hosmer Side Road, 174 Fernie Shop Road, from maintenance funds. Minor
betterment on 28 Cokato Road. Additional funds to widen intersection of Highway 3, Southern Trans-Provincial (Arterial 447r), with Pine Avenue for left turn
slot and 173 Stephenson Subdivision Road.
Flooding in rivers and streams caused damage and repair work with rock
riprap approaches to Gold Creek Bridge. Erosion along banks at several locations
on Elk River. Dyke repairs on Elk River in West Fernie. Erosion on piers of
Wilson Bridge across Cummings Creek near Sparwood. Betania Bridge approach
washed out. Hartley Creek in Hosmer area flooded and gravel wash in multiplate
culvert; on Brule, Weigert Creeks, drifting and gravel wash. Sixty-nine miles of
road taken over from Cranbrook District on west side of Kootenay River to United
States border due to highway district boundary changes.
Snow removal—Average to slightly above average in most areas which
required constant work of ploughing, sanding, and applying salt. Winter shifts of
around the clock in Fernie and Jaffray areas seven days a week with two shifts,
seven days a week in Sparwood area, which started in November until end of
March 1975.    Normal temperatues, heavy snowfall in February 1975.
Construction — Highway 3 Southern Trans-Provincial shoulder widen and
ditching 1.1 miles between Wardner and Jaffray. Highway 4 Elk Valley Road
revision, survey, and purchase of right-of-way. Highway 4 Elk Valley Road shoulder widen and ditch 10 miles between Brule Creek and Elkford.

Golden District
Roads
Maintenance — Major spring clean-up, commenced in March of 1974, was
continued into late June. This involved major ditching, removal of remaining
slough from snowslide areas, heavy rock and mud fall on the Golden east section
of the Trans-Canada Highway through the Kicking Horse Canyon.
Removal of winter accumulation of litter, clearing clogged drains and culverts,
and removal of winter sand from the travelled portion of the road and from against
guard-rails was carried out on the Trans-Canada and Kootenay Columbia Highways and on other roads where necessary.
Damaged signs were replaced or repaired.
Rest areas were tidied up and toilets, guard-rail, etc., repainted.
Acceleration and deceleration lanes were repainted by summer employed students at all-major intersections.
Frost-heaving was heavy. Many soft areas of the Trans-Canada Highway 1
were excavated to a depth of 3 or 4 feet, backfilled with clean aggregate, and
recapped with asphalt pavement.
Weeds were mowed mainly on the rights-of-way of the Kootenay Columbia
Highway and on heavily used access roads to summer resort areas.
No-post guard-rail was removed from Donald to Quartz Creek on the Trans-
Canada Highway to permit paving of shoulders.
Speed limit signs for the reduced speeds were erected on main highways in
December.
Eight miles of side roads were improved and gravelled, 4.7 miles were resurfaced with asphalt roadmix.
Dust control was carried out using liquid asphalt cut-back on 8 miles and
liquid calcium on 21 miles. The latter treatment proved satisfactory for the entire
season only where the road beds were properly prepared with the use of crushed
aggregate shaping of the roadway and good compaction.
 B 118 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
Though floods occurred in June, with water levels as high as those in 1972,
little damage was caused to the highways, as riprap previously placed protected
trouble areas adjacent to the larger creeks and the run-off on the smaller ones was
fairly gradual.
Construction—Relocated and constructed 6 miles of Toby Creek Road 4 and
2.5 miles of Westside Road 2 south of Invermere.
Two miles of the Westside Road were repaved from Athalmer to Wilmer.
Major shoulder widening was carried out for 4 miles on the Kootenay Columbia Highway 95 from 16 miles to 20 miles south of Golden.
A portion of Quartz Street at Lake Windermere was constructed and gravelled.
Snow removal—Snowfall was comparatively light in most areas but frequent,
necessitating constant ploughing, sanding, and chemical treatment. A 24-hour
coverage system was instituted in Golden-Foreman area in November and proved
to be far more satisfactory in our case than previously used two-shift systems. As
a result, better coverage was obtained, operators did not become overtired and
overtime was minimal.
Sixty thousand tons of sand were screened of which 17,000 tons were mixed
with salt in stockpile. Frequent usage of salt kept the paved main roads bare most
of the winter.
Small snowslides began occurring in March on the Kicking Horse section of
the Trans-Canada Highway 1, but no major delays were necessary.
Additional radios in the snow removal equipment speeded up dispatching
machines to trouble areas before they could become a major problem.
Ski-hill operators reported a doubling of attendance over the previous winter
at the Fairmont and Panorama (Invermere) slopes which made it necessary to
increase the frequency of snow removal from access roads.
Total snowfall varied from 412 inches at Quartz Creek west of Golden on
the Trans-Canada Highway 1, 180 inches at Golden, and 97 inches at Canal Flats
on the Kootenay Columbia Highway.
Bridges
Two structures were renewed, one over the Columbia River at Brisco and one
over a small creek on Campbell Road.
Fifteen bridges received fairly minor repairs.
The fence panels on Mount Hunter and Quartz Creek Bridges were repainted
by students on the summer crew.
Mudsills, caps, ties, and decking were renewed on Lesooks Bridge on the
Toby Creek Road.
Buildings
A heavy-duty floor crane was installed in the Athalmer shop.
A maximum security fence was constructed around the perimeters of the main
yard and parking-lot at the Golden establishment and the balance of the storage
area was fenced with barbed wire.
Beams, blocks, and tackles were installed in the yard to permit hanging up
front end snow-ploughs and tail-gate sanders for ease in mounting.
Lighting and block heaters were installed in the employee parking-lot.
Miscellaneous
The roads and parking areas were enlarged at the Golden weigh-scales to
handle the large truck volume.
Overburden was screened in the Golden hill pit for use on landscaping projects.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 119
Revelstoke District
Roads
Maintenance—The spring run-off was late and the creeks and rivers ran high
carrying quantities of debris which washed out several large culverts and eroded
considerable sections of road shoulders, particularly on Nakusp-Mica Creek Highway 23 (Revelstoke-Mica Creek section).
Major repairs and the installation of large culverts were required throughout.
Riprap protection of the river banks at Bigmouth and Downie was necessary.
At Trout Lake, 1,200 feet of the Lardeau River bank was protected by riprap and in Revelstoke, 2,500 feet of the Illecillewaet River bank was heavily rip-
rapped.
Construction—Construction of the grade for the east access to Revelstoke,
Project 2469, was completed, after the many springs encountered were controlled
by horizontal drains and perforated pipes.
The Big Eddy Underpass, Project 619, on Highway 23, was opened to traffic
and islands were constructed at the intersection with the Trans-Canada Highway.
A connection was made from Highway 23 to Nixon Road and this road and
the underpass were paved and chip sealed.
A chip sealcoat was applied on 28 miles of Highway 23 and through the Big
Eddy area.
Other day-labour road constructions were from Rogers Corner to Armstrong
Lake on Highway 31 where over 1 mile of grade was built and 5 miles improved.
Improvements were made to Cottonwood Street, Ohlhausen Road, and Tum-Tum
Road, and crush gravel was laid on subdivision roads in the Arrow Heights area.
A paved shoulder was added on Fourth Street for 1,200 feet to improve the safety
of school-children. Beach Water Access Road and Park Street were constructed
and gravelled.
A turn-around was completed at the east boundary of the district on the
Trans-Canada Highway 1.
Snow removal—Three hundred and forty-eight inches of snow fell in Revelstoke and temperatures were colder than normal, resulting in less melting throughout the season which created higher snow banks, particularly in the subdivisions.
Difficulties were encountered in keeping the roads wide enough.
Many snowslides on the Trans-Canada Highway were removed with the use
of large rented loaders.
Bridges
New piers and approach spans were built at Greely to receive a Howe truss
bridge salvaged from Bigmouth Creek 88 miles north on the Mica Creek Highway 23.
Kay Falls Bridge on Trans-Canada Highway 1 was widened 6 feet by the
addition of a 60-foot concrete stringer.
Greely Creek Bridge was replaced by a new log stringer span on an improved
alignment.
The bridge crew also constructed a concrete powerhouse building and oil shed
foundation at Trout Lake, installed a sewer system and 1,000 feet of 2-inch
waterline.
Oil-shed foundations were also built at 50 Mile Camp and Revelstoke Yard.
 B  120 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
Ferries
The hours of the Shelter Bay ferry, MV Galena, were extended from 12 hours
to 24-hour coverage on May 16, 1974.
The boat ran continuously all year except for two days when drydocked for
inspection and hull repairs.
REGION 4
(L. A. Broddy, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George)
Quesnel, Prince George, Pouce Coupe, Fort St. John, Vanderhoof, Burns Lake,
Smithers, Terrace, and Prince Rupert Highway Districts
Quesnel District
Roads
Maintenance—Heavy snowfalls during the month of January coupled with an
early thaw in March caused many small creeks to flood. Also the abundance of
moisture in the ground caused many small slides as well as a very large slide on the
Quesnel-Hixon road which covered 10 acres and required the reconstruction of
0.3 mile.
Oil as a dust pallative was distributed on 56 miles of residential streets and
feeder routes. A prolonged dry spell required a double application of oil on some
of the more heavily travelled roads.
Construction—A total of 20.8 miles on Cariboo Highway 97 at McLeese Lake,
Marguerite, Hixon, and south of Quesnel was widened.
Reconstruction on the Nazko, Marsh, McLean, Tibbies, and other minor roads
resulted in a total of 7.4 miles of reconstruction.
Bridges
The Tibbies, Natinicko, and Young Bridges were reconstructed on new locations.   Mitchell and Antler Creek Bridges were redecked.
The Quesnel salt shed was cleaned and painted inside and the trusses were
repaired and strengthened.
A building to house the loader was built in Swift River Pit as well as an oil
storage building and a generator building in the Nazko yard.
Ferries
Soda Creek and Marguerite reaction ferry operations were normal except for
the suspension of service for several days during spring freshet in June.
Prince George District
Roads
Maintenance—No major frost heaves were encountered from spring break up
on trunk highways; however, the heavy snowfall from the previous winter did cause
some flooding on the John Hart Highway 97 for a short period.
The spring flooding caused numerous washouts on many local side roads plus
destruction of one large fill necessitating the construction of a bridge to replace
culverts.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  121
Hauling of shale and gravel was required for numerous frost boils on local
roads.
Snowfall during the past winter was not excessive; however, frequent light
snowfalls kept the district crews sanding and salting steadily.
The bare pavement policy was maintained fairly well over the winter.
A shoulder ice build-up late in the winter created a problem in cutting off
during a cold spell. These were cut as soon as the weather was mild enough for
chemicals to work on the ice.
Construction—Major day labour included completion of 13.9 miles of reconstruction of main feeders, 5.3 miles reconstruction of trunk highway, and 25.3 miles
of trunk highway shoulder widening.
Some 7,000 tons of hotmix asphalt were laid by district crews for major patching on the John Hart 97 and Yellowhead 16 Highways; 145,000 gallons of dust
pallative were placed on local roads. Some problems were caused by rain necessitating oiling of roads twice in some areas.
A total of 25,000 gallons of liquid calcium chloride were used on 12 miles of
local roads; 627,000 cubic yards of gravel and 35,000 cubic yards of sand plus
55,000 cubic yards of rock for riprap were used by district forces on day labour and
local road upgrading.
Pouce Coupe District
Roads
Maintenance—The winter snowfall was about 40 per cent below average with
unusually mild temperatures. Weather changes, however, necessitated much ice
control and an above-average amount of sand and chemical was used.
Spring break-up was normal with a limited amount of flood damage. All
roads were graded and pavement was all patched.
Numerous signs damaged by heavy snow were replaced. Also, 10.87 miles
of district roads in developed areas were treated with dust pallatives.
Mid-summer brought heavy rains with record flooding and much damage to
roads in the Dawson Creek area. Rains prevailed until late fall and it took the
district until December to repair the damage.
Construction—A very heavy year with numerous problems due to wet weather
were experienced. Work, however, started in late April with placement of base
course material on the new Highway 49. The complete result was 5.29 miles of
pulvimix paved highway and 1.57 miles of crush gravel surface by district day
labour for Project S-6273. Prior to the repaving of Highway 29 under Project
S-6374, district forces cleaned ditches, repaired fill failures, and failing culverts by
day-labour work.
For the Department of Public Works, the district constructed the Pouce Coupe
weigh-scale yard, approach roads, and storage lanes. This included grade work,
base construction, and placement of crushed gravel in preparation for paving.
A further effort was made to repair sliding sections of the Alaska Highway 97
at the Peace River and Kitskatinaw Hills with a 0.2-mile section on the Kiskatinaw
Hill and a 0.7-mile section on the Peace River Hill reconstructed on more stable
ground and the road surfaced with pulvimix. Also a wood box culvert and a 35-
foot fill were removed and replaced by a 10-foot multiplate steel culvert and fill at
Mile 16 on the Alaska Highway 97.
Ditches were cleaned on approximately 5 miles of unstable slopes along the
Alaska Highway 97 and John Hart Highway 97 east of the Pine Pass.
 B 122 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
Numerous district roads were improved with the final result being 26.7 miles
of new construction, 57.8 miles of reconstruction, 32.8 miles of new gravelling,
and 81.6 miles of regravelling. Grade construction carried on into the winter on
the Boucher Lake Road 31 and the Boundary Road 42. Also 10 miles of clearing
was completed on the Boundary road in preparation for the proposed future reconstruction.  The fill failure at Saskatoon Creek Rolla Road 3 was repaired.
Thirteen pits and stockpile sites were developed and 165,300 tons of pit run
gravel was hauled into stockpiles from limited winter access sources. Also, 49,300
tons of crushed gravel was moved nearer to the areas where it would be used. In
addition, three new sandstone quarries were developed and 13,000 cubic yards of
material was ripped and pushed into stockpiles for future use.
Bridges
The district bridge crew was busy during the full year with an accomplishment
of four new bridges with a total of 124 lineal feet of 24-foot width pile trestle bridge
and placed concrete substructure, two piers, and two abutments for the permanent
Hays Bridge. Also the crew performed accident repairs and maintenance work
on 20 bridges and constructed three landing-ramps for the Clayhurst ferry.
Buildings
No new buildings were constructed, however, the Chetwynd maintenance yard
was excavated, replaced with pit run gravel, and prepared for paving. Also, the
assembly building was relocated and repaired. The bridge material storage area at
the Pouce Coupe yard was cleaned up and reorganized. Sander and snowplough
hangers were constructed at Mount Lemoray and Pouce Coupe yards. The Progress yard was enlarged by clearing and levelling.
Ferries
The Clayhurst ferry on the Peace River was put into operation April 29, 1974,
and operated with only 120 hours of interruption due to low water or mechanical
problems until January 10, 1975, when it was removed due to ice conditions and
overhauled. It returned to service March 14, 1975. An ice bridge could not be
constructed due to warm weather.
Landing guide lights were installed on each side of the river for guidance
during common fog conditions.
Fort St. John District
Roads
Maintenance—1974 spring break-up was a long, drawn-out affair with cool
temperatures. Road restrictions were on until May 22. June was a good month
for maintenance and construction; however, we again ran into a wet July and
August, putting our day-labour construction program behind schedule as well as
creating a muddy mess for the public as many roads were torn up but not completed. Weather conditions improved in mid-September and an exceptionally dry
fall followed, giving us an opportunity to complete the day-labour program and
complete general improvements to the road system. The roads were in very good
condition with the advent of winter.
Winter was generally moderate with a less than average snowfall, little wind,
and acceptable temperatures.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 123
A severe storm in the Good Hope Lake area in July washed out the north
approach to the Troutline Bridge and it was subsequently restored with the addition
of 10 feet to the structure. Severe flooding also occurred in the Bob Quinn Lake
area in October with considerable damage to the highway, and the Burrage River
Bridge also required an addition of 10 feet at that time. Repairs to the road were
not completed by freeze-up and still remain to be done.
Construction—During the 1974/75 fiscal year under day-labour projects, 5
miles of Highway 37 were reconstructed south from Good Hope Lake camp, 100
miles were regravelled, and 19.6 miles were surfaced with pulvimix. Also, 0.5 mile
of the Telegraph Creek Road was widened and the Third North Fork Bridge was
replaced with a multiplate culvert, using day-labour funds.
A start was made to replace a long section of wood culvert in Telegraph Creek
townsite with a multiplate pipe.
As well, 52.5 miles were upgraded and gravelled and another 67 miles were
improved.
Bridges
In addition to carrying out routine maintenance on 33 bridges, the bridge crew
replaced two old pile trestle structures with multiplate culvert pipes and replaced
one 100-foot pile trestle. During the winter the crew started construction of a
salt shed at Hudson's Hope.
Three double-double Bailey bridges were converted to triple-single chord
reinforced on Highway 37, and all but two wood decks were filled in between the
running planks.
Vanderhoof District
Roads
Maintenance—The year started out with heavy spring run-off which caused
considerable flooding and washout damage. The end result was the construction
of several new bridges and the installation of numerous culverts.
Summer was generally dry necessitating increased use of dust pallatives. The
dry summer, however, enabled the district to proceed with several gravelling and
ditching programs and a number of major right-of-way clearing programs.
The fall was also dry and prolonged and this enabled a continuation of maintenance and day-labour programs until the beginning of December.
Winter snow removal and maintenance needs were reduced as a result of the
light snowfall during the winter by making use of gravel pits which could only be
accessed by winter roads.
Construction—Minor day labour was reasonably successful. It included reconstruction of 2 miles on Savory Road, reconstruction of 0.5 mile on Telegraph
Road, clearing right-of-way on 6 miles of Telegraph Road, reconstruction of 3.2
miles of Sturgeon Point Road, reconstruction of 1.5 miles of Sowchea Road, reconstruction of 0.4 mile of Stone's Bay Road, and reconstruction of 1.5 miles of Chilco
North Road.
Major day labour included Francois lake Road, 1 mile reconstruction; Lily
Lake Road, 5.2 miles reconstruction; Nithi Road, 1.1 miles reconstruction; Chow-
sunket Road, 0.4 mile paving; Kenney Dam Road, 4.4 miles pulvimix paving;
Blackwater Road, 3.2 miles reconstruction; Sowchea Road, 3.1 miles reconstruction;
and Hospital Road, 0.2 mile reconstruction.
 B 124 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1974/75
Bridges
The bridge crew had a busy season. They constructed five new bridges,
reconstructed three and installed one Bailey bridge at Fort St. James to provide
a detour for a bridge which was destroyed by fire. The bridge crew also constructed new piledriving leads and supplied manpower for the fabrication of a new
bridge truck.
Mining Road and Trails
This district constructed the approaches for the Omineca River Bridge at
Germansen Landing. As a result of expected settlement problems the south
approach fill was constructed in two stages, one in May, and the other in October.
The bridge was constructed by contract and the laminated deck will be installed
in 1975 by the Vanderhoof bridge crew.
Vanderhoof District supervised maintenance of the Omineca Road from Mile
65 to Mile 139.
Burns Lake District
Roads
Maintenance—Spring break-up in 1974 necessitated many culvert replacements and renewals, in addition to shoulder and ditch work. Several culverts were
washed out and Highway 16 was threatened at one point.
About 20 miles of side roads were gravelled and ditched, aided by a new
Gradall-type machine shared with Smithers. The pull grader was again utilized
in the Southbank country and assisted in about 10 miles of ditching work.
The patch crew level-coursed Highway 16 east of Burns Lake prior to a seal
coating operation, in addition to their routine patching program. Approximately
10 miles of selected side roads were oiled or treated for dust control.
About 10 persons were involved in the Summer Student Employment Program,
assisting in garbage and litter pick up, sign, and guard-rail painting and minor
brushing projects.
Three new steel cattleguards were installed near Houston, a berm built to
control the Stock Creek slide, approaches to the new Buck Creek Bridge constructed,
preparation made for fencing several pits, a new grader camp established at Ootsa
Lake, and several minor curve realignments accomplished.
Construction—Clean-up was completed on the Topley Landing Road, but the
right-of-way has yet to be seeded.
Construction of a 2-mile section of the Keefe's Landing Road replaced a
treacherous section. Continued construction will link the Southbank ferry-landing
to Grassy Plains with a 45 m.p.h. standard road.
About 5 miles of the Colleymount Road were regravelled and ditched and
surveys were completed for further reconstruction.
The approaches to the new Houston railway crossing were completed and
turned over to the municipality.   The new crossing is now open.
Approximately 13 miles of Highway 16 were shouldered and treated near
Topley. There are good shoulders throughout the district now, although the new
40-foot standard is not met.
Walcott Road was completely reconstructed and gravelled. Fences and
cattleguards were replaced.
Stairways were constructed on the Houston overhead fills and turned over to
the municipality for maintenance.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B  125
Snow removal—A lighter than normal snowfall for the year allowed many
minor projects to be completed during the winter months. Freezing and thawing
was a problem this winter, necessitating more than normal salt and calcium. Weekend and night shifts in all areas insured good road conditions all winter.
Bridges
In addition to an average year of maintenance of bridges a new bridge was
built at Augier Creek and Hawse Loop. Major repairs were necessary on Fulton
River Bridge due to continued accidents and the Clark Bridge structure had to be
reinforced.
Several temporary spans were installed over culvert washouts in 1974, and the
Houston Bailey bridge was removed and dismantled.
The bridge crew did considerable work on the Francois Lake bubble system
and the two barges, in addition to assisting in ice break-up with the tug Georgella.
Buildings
Repairs were made to the salt-storage sheds in Burns Lake and Houston.
The paint on all Burns Lake yard buildings has failed and is falling off due to an
unusual cold snap in February.
Ferries
The MV Jacob Henkel operated all year except in late May of 1974 due to
annual refit.   It was replaced by tug and barge.
In July of 1974 the schedule was expanded to 24 hours necessitating additional
crews.
A new vessel for Francois Lake is under construction and expected to be in
operation in 1976. New landings, storage facilities, ways, bubble systems, and rest
areas will be constructed as well.
Routine repair work was done on the docks, but replacement will be necessary.
Ducks, geese, and swans frequent the melted pools in the ice during winter
months, feeding in the bubble system currents.
Smithers District
Roads
Maintenance—Severe fall flooding damage in the west end of the district and
in the Kitwanga-Meziadin areas. Many culverts had to be cleaned out or replaced
and some additional culverts were installed. The Yellowhead Highway was cut
at Price Creek for a few hours; the pavement will have to be replaced this year.
There was a lighter than average snowfall over winter; however, the sand and
chemical requirements remain the same. Hand brushing carried out on several side
roads. Fencing done of Yellowhead Highway and Burnt Cabin Road as well as a
few small sections. An interim inventory was taken in preparation for the maintenance management program.
Construction—Some 4 miles of shoulder widening were done on the Yellowhead Highway east of Telkwa. Revision of the "Telkwa Curve" on the Yellowhead
Highway was completed and paved with hotmix material; the landscaping of old
highway was completely ready for seeding. New construction on the Burnt Cabin
and Babine Lake Road with 16 miles of reconstruction and gravelling. A multiplate cattlepass was installed in Burnt Cabin Road.   Riprap was placed along the
 B 126 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1974/75
banks of the Skeena River in the "Camp Two" and "Andimaul" areas. Some
material hauled to the Kitwanga Bridge approach on the north side to assist the
contractor for the steel erection.
Bridges
Routine maintenance, including cleaning curbs and sidewalks of snow and
ice during the winter months. The fall floods caused extra work for the crew who
also spent several days in the Bob Quinn area of Prince Rupert District. The Mill
Creek trestle was replaced with 130 feet of Bailey bridging. A headquarters crew
did deck resurfacing on the Trout Creek, Moricetown Overhead, and Anlaw Bridges.
Steel open-mesh decking was placed on the approaches to the Haguelgate Bridge
by contractor. The substructure of the Kitwanga Bridge over the Skeena River
was completed on schedule and the steel erection contract will be completed within
a few days. An early awarding of the deck system is hoped for to allow for completion in 1975.
Ferries
The Cedarvale Reaction ferry continues on a double-shift basis whenever
weather and water conditions will allow. During low-water periods and throughout the winter months the aerial basket ferry carries pedestrian traffic. Some
changes were made in the ramps to improve the docking procedure. The completion of the Kitwanga Bridge may affect the future of this ferry.
Terrace District
Roads
Maintenance—Spring break-up was such that considerable time and funds
were required to effect surface repairs. A rather wet summer season assisted in the
maintenance of gravel roads, but increased the unit costs on day-labour construction.
Flash flooding in October resulted in considerable road and bridge damage, keeping
crews busy at repairs well into November.
The new brush-cutting attachment for one of our graders was used to good
advantage throughout the district.
Construction—Day-labour construction was continued at Mile 20 to 27 on
Highway 16 west of Terrace. This project includes the approaches to the new
Exstew River Bridge.
Construction was also carried out on 5 miles of the Kitimat Village Road and
at sundry locations on the Kalum Lake Road.
Snow removal—The winter months produced near normal snowfalls in all
areas. The avalanche area west of Terrace was patrolled 24 hours per day, seven
days a week, in an attempt to insure safer travel conditions for motorists.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on the many wooden bridges throughout
the district.
New bridges were opened to traffic at the Kalum River, Zimacord River,
Shames River, Exchamsiks River, and Kasiks River and demolition of the old
truss structures was undertaken by the district bridge crew.
Ferries
The reaction ferry and cable car were operated on a double shift to give extended service to the residents on the north bank of the Skeena River at Usk.
 REGIONAL REPORTS
B 127
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance—All phases of spring clean-up maintenance were completed by
mid-June with special emphasis on rock scaling and ditch cleaning along Highway
16 in the "Rupert" area.
Work continued widening rock through-cut sections in the Stewart and Meziadin areas to provide snow storage.
In all areas of the district a continuous program of brushing and right-of-way
clean-up was carried out.
A good start was made on landscaping depleted gravel pit work areas in the
Queen Charlotte and Stewart areas.
Highway 16 was the subject of a major pavement patching program in areas
where surface failures were critical.
Early in October exceptionally high rainfall combined with warm temperatures
at high elevations to produce severe flood conditions in the Stewart and Alice Arm
areas.   Emergency repair work on roads continued until Christmas.
Construction—
Rupert area: Some 5.7 miles of shoulder widening was constructed on
the south end of the Port Edward Arterial. To facilitate installation of a left-turn slot, 1,000 feet of widening was constructed at the
Frederick Street intersection of Highway 16. This work involved
considerable rock removal as well as paving. At the "Canadian
Cellulose" pulp operation entrance to the Port Edward Arterial,
1,000 feet of widening was constructed to allow for a deceleration
lane.
Stewart-Meziadin area: On the Stewart-Meziadin Lake Road, 20 miles
of resurfacing with crushed gravel were laid from the Bear River
crossing east into the Bear Pass.    Combined with this work, 12
miles of widening to 34 feet were accomplished to upgrade the standard on this road.
Snow removal—All roads in the district were kept open, including the Meziadin area where, despite severe storm conditions on several occasions, crews were
able to keep traffic moving north toward Cassiar, south toward Terrace and Kitwanga, and west to Stewart.   Some short delays were caused by avalanches in the
Bear Pass and on Highway 16 along the Skeena River.
Prince Rupert area experienced normal freeze/thaw coastal conditions with
average snowfall.
In the Queen Charlotte area snowfall was light by comparison with previous
years and emphasis was on control of icing conditions.
Bridges
An extensive program of timber bridge deck surface treatment was carried
out to provide improved traction in wet conditions on bridges along Highway 16.
Queen Charlotte area: The old Tlell River Bridge was dismantled and
the river bed restored.   Some abutment retaining wall strengthening
was done on three minor bridges—Watun, Kumdis  1, and Gold
Creek.
Stewart-Meziadin areas: Bitter Creek Bridge was reconstructed following

and this is accounted for by the elimination of two large expenditure items previously
included in the report of this Department. The two items involved are B.C. Ferries
Division and Summer Employment Program, which are now included in the reports
of the Department of Transport and Communications and the Department of
Labour respectively.
