This station contains four tracks and two side platforms. The two middle express tracks run at a lower level than the two outer local ones. The fare control is at platform level and there are no open crossunders or crossovers. However, there is a closed crossunder with railings and a blacked out sign indicating its location. The token booth is unusual in that it is built into the tile wall instead of a standalone structure like most other stations. The station's ornamentation includes glass block wall artwork at the main fare control entitled Seven Ways 4 Twenty-Eighth, which was installed during station renovations in 1996. There is also an unusual back-lit station sign name, similar to that at 23rd Street, at fare control.

28th Street station has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2005.[4]
