The Avenue I Station has two side platforms on the local tracks of the three tracked line. The station's platforms are windscreened, and canopied for their entire lengths except for a small section at their northern ends. The canopy is held up by small-cantilevered beams that are also windscreened. These are all painted green and have little Ditmas Avenue signs on them. For exits, the station has two. The 24-hour booth exit is at the southern end of the station, a single staircase leads down from each platform to a small station house where the there is the turnstiles and the token booth faces them. This in tern leads out to two street stairs off the elevated on the northern side of Ditmas Avenue at Avenue I. There is a secondary unstaffed exit at the southern end of the station where a single staircase leads down from each platform to a High Exit Turnstile from the Coney Island-platform, and a single staircase is down to a High Entrance/Exit Turnstile from the Manhattan-bound platform. These in turn lead to staircases down to street level on eitherside of McDonald Avenue just north of Avenue J. The station house beneath the tracks for this secondary exit is still in existence it has just been converted to non-passenger uses so there is no longer a free crossunder at this end of the station.
