Pulaski was a CTA station that wasn't left largely untouched during the 1994-1996 Green Line reconstruction with the CTA planning to build a more substantial community oriented station that never materialized. It was finally renovated (staying open) with a ribbon cutting for the new station in June 2001. All remains of the former station were finally removed in 2011(Chicago-L.org). The station today has two modern side platforms that are canopied for most of their lengths except their western thirds. The canopies are the normal white color with slightly slanted roofs but look slightly more modern than other Green Line stations, No beams lead across the tracks. Each platform has a single small on platform fare control area with turnstiles at its eastern end. There is a simply footbridge above the platforms between the tracks but was designed to be closed to the general public and only to let the Customer Assistant get between the two fare control areas so only one (not two, one for each area) can be assigned to the station. This means this station lacks a free crossover or under. The turnstiles have small fare control areas and lead to a staircase down to the corner and an elevator just up the block to the SW inbound and NW outbound corners of Pulaski Road and Lake Street. The entrance to the outbound platform has a direct connection from platform level to the Bethel Community Center that opened in 2005 during the building's hours. There is finally a second exit only staircase down from each platform to a high exit turnstile at street level in the middle of the block along Lake Street between Karlov Avenue and Pulaski Road.
