Hey—the new 10th ave entrance at Commercial-Broadway Station is now open!

Go ahead and use it: there’s a lovely new staircase leading up to platforms 3 and 4, a shiny new up escalator, plus great new lighting and glass walls at the ground level. (See the full list of upgrades here — plus here’s what it used to look like.)

Just be aware of a couple of things:

  • The elevator is still out: it’s awaiting inspection and will be working soon!
  • The ticket vending machines at the new entrance are cash-only today.
  • Watch out: some construction is still going on!
  • An official opening will happen in a few weeks.

I have to say it’s pretty exciting that the new entrance is open so soon. Remember that the initial end date was December 2009? Plus, it’s great that we never had to close the station during the whole upgrade period!

OK, now here’s a few more photos of the new station entrance, plus links to past upgrade posts.
