This elevated station has three tracks and two side platforms.[6] The center track is used by the peak direction rush hour <7> express service.[3] Both platforms have beige windscreens and brown canopies supported by green frames and columns in the center and black waist-high steel fences at either ends. The station signs are in the standard black name plate in white lettering. Each platform has a large "82" sign between the two staircases to the mezzanine below.

Exits[edit]

This station's one entrance/exit is an elevated station house beneath the tracks. It is built of wood and bricks and has a concrete flooring. It has three staircases from all corners of 82nd Street and Roosevelt Avenue except the southeast one and a token booth in the center.[7] Two turnstile banks at either ends lead to a waiting area/crossunder and one staircase to each platform at the center.
