Took a look at the station Tuesday night after a meeting and still a lot of work to be done on the platform. Heaters in the shelters, but not working. Lots of flashing and ceiling to be install yet.

There are 6-10-12 car post on the platform temporary until the 6/10 signs get place on the shelters.

The accessibly platform has ramps on both side of it.

Seeing it at night and from the platform for the first time, lights running the length of the parking structure at the top. The north side was more lighted than the south side.

Watch riders get off a train and crunch time to get to the stair and down it, as well the elevators for the parking structure. Very few riders got off the first 3 front cars, as very few on them. Only a small group use the platform elevator.

A long backup of cars wrapping around the ramps from other levels to the street for the east end and most likely the same for the west end.

The train idle longer than normal and most likely to to the crowd at the top of the stair as well on the platform from it to the accessibility platform.

The tunnel has a slopping ramp and there is a 4 & 3 step stair beside it.

Unedited, not tag and out of order with a few out of the 60 I shot

From those photos, all the old station entrance and platform is now gone. You can see the tunnel under the tracks that will be extended to the new station and be bury over.

Strange they not built the parking lot over to the new station.
