A design contract is due to be issued later this year for a $26 million upgrade to the 2,000-foot-long George Massey tunnel under the Fraser River near Vancouver, British Columbia. The project will give a seismic retrofit to the 45-year-old tunnel, which is a designated lifeline structure on the city's Disaster Response Route, a network of land and water routes that would only be open to emergency vehicles following a disaster.
