5th Street is the first stop on the four station loop used by the Blue Line to serve and turnaround in downtown Long Beach. It has a single platform on the east side of the single track in the median of Long Beach Blvd. The front, southern end, of the platform is a traffic light just for a crosswalk to the station a short ways north of Melrose Way/5th Street. A ramp leads up to TVMs and the end of the platform. A canopy covers the TVMs and about one LRV length as well (like every island platform on the blue line). The platform extends north with six stained glass windows in the circles on top of the platform lampposts alongside the blue platform fence. These are part of Failed Ideals by Jim Isermann. The northern, back end of the platform has two TVMs beneath a tiny awning and a staircase down to the crosswalk of 6th Street.
