Biographical history

The Dept. of Highways was established in 1955 with the enactment of the Department of Highways Act (SBC 1955, c. 33). Prior to 1955, the Highways Branch of the Dept. of Public Works was responsible for all functions relating to the management of highways. The mandate of the Dept. of Highways included the construction and maintenance of all government roads, bridges, ferries, wharves, and other works with respect to provincial highways. In 1961, the department was divided into four branches: Construction Branch, Location Branch, Materials Testing Branch, and Traffic Branch. In 1975 the functions of both the Dept. of Highways and the Dept. of Public Works were merged to form a new agency with the Dept. of Highways and Public Works (OIC 3842/75).
