The Waterfront Canada Line station in downtown Vancouver was closed part of Monday afternoon due to a police incident, according to TransLink.

In a written statement released at 2 p.m. PT, TransLink spokesperson Drew Snider said the station had reopened and the Canada Line was running normally.

The station was shut down Monday afternoon and trains were being turned back at the Olympic Village station.

Riders were advised to expect delays between trains and long line-ups at station platforms.

Officials attributed the closure to a "police incident" but declined to release further details.
