This elevated station has three tracks and two side platforms. The center track is not used in regular service.

It resembles other elevated stations along the line: it has wood mezzanines and no windscreens along the platform edges.

From July 5, 2014 to April 27, 2015, as part of a $109 million rebuilding project at five Pelham Line stations,[1] this station, along with Buhre Avenue, was closed for station rehabilitation work.[4][5]


The station's only exit is a mezzanine beneath the tracks. Outside fare control, stairs lead to the northeast and southwest corners of Westchester Avenue and Zerega Avenue.[6]
