Station designEdit

Originally, the station and its adjacent trackway were designed with an exclusive train-only lane on the platform's eastern side and a mixed traffic lane on the western side. The station was subsequently redesigned with exclusive lanes on both sides of the platform, enabling trains to proceed faster through the 4th and Bryant intersection preceding the station.[5]
