Access to Elk Falls Suspension Bridge to be closed for four days

Access to the Elk Falls Suspension Bridge will be closed from Jan. 24-27, so that some trees can be cleared along the old penstock corridor.

And BC Hydro will be closing other roads and trails in the area as part of the preparation work for the John Hart Dam seismic upgrade.

There are two sites that have a public interface and will require temporary closures, BC Hydro stakeholder engagement advisor Stephen Watson says. These include the parking lot to the trail heads of the Lower Deliverance pedestrian trail and the Alligator Rock bike trail to the north of the dam, and beside the pedestrian bridge that crosses the old penstock corridor that leads to the Elk Falls suspension bridge.
