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.
