The renovation of Main Street Station, a major Expo Line SkyTrain Station, was a complex project requiring tight timetables and an elegant approach to project management. The goal was to reintegrate the major transit hub into the ever-growing neighborhood, emphasizing welcoming the pedestrian realm into the station as well as surrounding landscaping, accommodating projected rider increases over the next decade, and creating a more welcoming environment to patrons.
