This provides the green light for them to mobilize workers to the site.

The event, in March, will allow for qualified construction contractors and suppliers, and individual job seekers, to hear more about the project and be able to engage on the potential opportunities. More information, including required event registration, will be provided in February and found at: http://cr.majorprojects.ca.

BC Hydro and SNC-Lavalin are working to sign the project contract in mid-February 2014, when they would then mobilise to the site.

                                                                                      BC Hydro anticipates announcing the preferred John Hart contractor in early to mid-November. BC Hydro and the contractor will then enter a period of final negotiations until the contract is signed in early 2014. BC Hydro plans to open the new access road, parking lot and trail to Elk Falls Provincial Park on November 8. Public access will be open from dawn to dusk. The current park entrance off Brewster Lake Road, beside the John Hart Dam, will remain open to the public until the closure of Brewster Lake Road across the dam. BC Hydro’s John Hart Project Interpretive Centre opens two days a week starting November 12.

We are currently reviewing those final submissions and will publicly announce the preferred John Hart contractor once the evaluation process is complete. BC Hydro and the contractor will then enter a period of final negotiations until the contract is signed later in the fall.

The new trail will be open to the public on August 30 at 5:00 pm.
