Irving Park is a Metra Union Pacific Northwest Line station located on the southwest side of the Kennedy Expressway, which contains the Blue Line in it's median. The station is across the southbound lanes from the Blue Line's Irving Park Station. This station consists of two side platforms along the three-track line. These platforms begin at the overpass of Irving Park Road and run southwest. All access to the Inbound platform is via a walkway/ramp from Irving Park Road alongside a Kennedy Expressway onramp. This ramp leads up directly to the platform with a staircase, midway along the ramp leading to the very end of the Inbound platform. The outbound platform is accessed from parallel Avondale Avenue. A staircase is located near the southern end of the platform. A ramp (with a steps located to cut-off some of the switchbacks) is at the northern end of the platform. At the northern end of the outbound platform is a wooden pedestrian crossing to the middle track where one door of a train on the middle track could stop. Station passenger amenities are minimal. The Inbound platform has 1, the outbound platform 2, small gabled roof canopy structures painted brown with wooden windscreens in the middle of them.
