Crenshaw should be an underground station so that it can continue north towards Hollywood. I guess Metro won't have enough money for two station exits, so for one direction of transfers, you'll have to cross twice. I imagine also that Metro would put the station on the south side of Exposition to save money in the short term. I don't imagine a huge amount of TOD in the near term, so probably nobody will pay for a second exit.

As far as I know there will be a single portal southeast of the Crenshaw Expo Line station. Transfers from the Westbound platform require crossing Crenshaw Blvd, Westbound platform is a shorter walk of a few dozen feet.
I think during the final design phase, they will have to address the transfers. There needs to be direct access from the Expo platform area to the underground station.
I would hope they put direct elevator connections from the subway station's mezzanine to the two surface station platforms to make it easier for the elderly/disabled. I would hate to see them them to have to cross the street twice just to catch their train.
