Slauson is one of three elevated Blue Line stations. The line rises up above the freight corridor it follows to cross Slauson Avenue on a concrete guideway. The staiton has a single island platform that is canopied for nearly its entire length. The station begins alongside the level crossing used by the freight tracks on the southern side of Slauson Avenue, in a walkway area beneath the elevated structure, first is an elevator up to the northern end of the platform. Next are the station's two TVMs followed by the main entrance staircases. The entrance area has been reconfigured since my visit to allow for the installation of turnstiles which the station now has. The pathway beneath the station continues with lights to the southern end beneath the platform. Here is an unmarked staircase up to an openable gate (without an emergency exit sign before it) at the southern end of the platform. South Central Suite by East Los Streetscapers has panels depicting the history of the surrounding neighborhood both on the fences along the platform and in the entrance area at street-level beneath.
