G Street level Exit/entrance

This elevated station has two tracks and one island platform. The station has an active tower and crew quarters at platform level. The platform has a canopy for most of its length.

To the east of the station, the tracks curve into Livonia Yard. Northeast of the station, there is a never-used trackway structure which continues for about 75 feet. This extension was a provision for the line to continue east on New Lots Avenue. Another provision south of the station, proposed in 1968, called for an extension of the line to go southbound from Livonia Yard to Flatlands Avenue as part of an unrealized New York City Subway expansion.

Exits[edit]

Street entrance

The station's sole exit is two staircases to either western corner of Livonia Avenue and Ashford Street via an elevated, wooden mezzanine/station house under the far eastern end of the platform.[9]
