VANCOUVER, British Columbia — TransLink, the transit operator in Vancouver’s metropolitan area, is launching a running rail replacement project on its Expo rail line. The agency will replace track pads and more than 3 miles of rail as part of the new project.

The work will take place close to Metrotown, Main Street-Science World, Stadium-Chinatown, and Waterfront stations.

The running rail replacement program, launched earlier this year, will continue each spring and summer for the next 8 to 10 years. It’s part of a larger state of good repair infrastructure program.

The agency’s Expo line is part of its SkyTrain rail transit service. It originally opened in 1985.
