The series comprises motion picture film materal shot by and for the Dept. of Highways, mainly in the 1950s and 1960s. There are also a few brief items from ca.1935-1940s, presumably shot for the Dept. of Public Works. Most of the material consists of unedited (or rough-edited) footage documenting highway and bridge construction and maintenance around the province, along with a few items about ferry services. The series also contains a few complete film productions, including prints of "Deas Island Tunnel", "Highway on the Sea", "Men, Mountains and the Challenge", and "Rogers Pass", some of which were produced for Highways by the Photographic Branch of the Dept. of Recreation and Conservation.
