Seismic Retrofit in the East


The bridge connects Ottawa's St. Patrick Street to Boulevard des Allumettières in Gatineau.

The work on the bridge involves seismic reinforcement of the piers.

I've simply never seen this for an eastern city. I wonder what's the real story behind this. Were the piers falling apart anyway? Did some brave crusader spill his guts getting this done?
