Washington Street is an underground Newark City Subway Station that was renovated in late 1990s with the addition of elevators and green signage to become one of the ADA compliant stations when the LRVs replaced in the PCCs in August of 2001. The station has two side platforms for the two track line. The platforms have a cream colored walls with a trimline of light and dark brown. Interrupting it is tiling that has Washington written in white and the original WPA-era murals of building the Morris Canal that are the highlights of the four underground Newark City Subway Stations.
For exits each platform has two, one at each end. The eastern end of the platforms is just west of Washington Street: a staircase and elevator in light green covered enclosures (with little awnings by the street entrances) lead up from the Penn Station-bound platform. The Grove Street-bound platform has a staircase up within the side of a building that arrives with a small green awning an enclosure funneling people out to the street. The western end of the platform at the other end of the block just east of University Avenue has a streetstair up from the Penn Station-bound platform (in the same style covered staircase) and the elevator on the street and a final streetstair down to the Grove Street-bound platform.
