87th Street is a South Chicago Branch station rebuilt in 2006 and consists of single island platform for the two track line that can fit 4 cars on a private ROW, the platform curves to the northwest slightly towards it's northern end. To the west side of the platform is an alley. The station has a single entrance at the southern end of the platform with a ramp up from the middle of the grade-crossing of 87th Street to a ramp up into a small station house. The structure has brick walls with green trim and a green gabled roof. The station house contains a TVM and a Passenger Assistance Phone. This station house has doors out to a green canopy that covers about half the platform. There is an additional smaller green canopy structure (with windscreens) near the northern end of the platform, although the northern end of platform is a simple fence.
