Rockwell is the easternmost Brown Line station located on 1.2 miles of grade track that takes trains to the Kimball terminal. The station has a single wooden island platform with brown lampposts and what are two glorified bus shelters for waiting passengers. There are a few stools for seating. This design is all modern with the station closed and rebuilt from February 20, 2006 to August 16, 2006. The station's exit is at the eastern end. Here there are doors at the very end of the platform that lead down to a gradual ramp inside a glass walled station house with a silver, slightly curved roof and brown trim. Along the ramp is Hidden Movers, a mixed media installation designed to show the delicate relationship between nature and humankind. It leads out doors in the middle of the Rockwell Street grade crossing.
