83rd Street/Avalon Park is a simple Metra flag stop (on hourly or better off-peak trains) with a small 2 car long wooden-high level island platform with two black white domed bus shelters for waiting passengers. This platform is in between the middle two tracks of the four track electrified Metra Line with two additional freight and Amtrak tracks to the east. To leave the platform, all passengers must pass through a small wooden hunt at the southern end of the platform with doors on both ends. An older generation Metra TVM is inside. From here a staircase leads down to a very short low-level platform area where trains could stop at one of the outside express tracks. Continuing, a tall a white wooden portal surrounds the entrance one staircase off the platform down to the north sidewalk of 83rd Street's underpass.
