The station opened on December 31, 1936, as part of an extension of the Queens Boulevard Line from Roosevelt Avenue to Union Turnpike.,[4] and has four tracks and two side platforms. The two center express tracks are used by the E train during daytime hours and the F train at all times. Black columns separate them from the local tracks, some of which have a "67TH AVE" sign on them in black lettering on a white background.

The platforms' trim lines are Medium Powder Blue with a black border. The name tablets have "67TH AVE." in white sans serif font on a black background and teal blue border. There are directional and station signs beneath them in white lettering on a black background. Dark blue I-beam columns run along both platforms for their entire length with alternating ones having the standard black name plate in white lettering.

The station has a full length mezzanine, which also have dark blue I-beam columns, above the platforms. There are six staircases to each platform and the fare control areas are at either ends. The full-time one is at the west (railroad south) end. It has a turnstile bank, token booth, and two street stairs to either eastern corner of Queens Boulevard and 67th Avenue. The station's other fare control area at the east (railroad north) end is un-staffed, containing full height turnstiles, no booth, and two street stairs to either eastern corner of Queens Boulevard and 67th Drive.
