A Request for Quotations (RFQ) is expected to be released by the end of May for a design/build proposal for the building of a new suspension bridge, two viewing platforms and connecting trails within Elk Falls Park. This project will be a partnership between BC Hydro, BC Parks and the Rotary Club of Campbell River. The total cost of this project is approximately $500,000. The Rotary Club will be the lead on this project and hope to have an RFQ released by the end of May.
