A moderate earthquake could severely damage Cambie Street Bridge: Report

Cambie Bridge

The youngest bridge of the three bridge crossings across False Creek will require rehabilitation work to help the structure withstand a moderately-powerful earthquake, according to a new City of Vancouver staff report.

Vancouver City Council is expected to approve a contract with Associated Engineering Ltd. worth up to $5.5 million for services that involve supplying a design for the bridge’s rehabilitation, as well as an increase of $425,000 to the budget for the bridge’s seismic assessment.
