Orange Line to Red Line transfer at Roosevelt Station

Next month I will be taking the Orange line from Midway and transfering to the Red line at the Roosevelt Station, heading north to the Belmont Station. How is the transfer from Orange Line to Red Line at Roosevelt? The CTA map I am looking at indicates a inside walk between stations. Is this below ground or above? Just looking for information to make a smooth transfer.

It's an above ground station. You won't have to walk anywhere/transfer stations/platforms...they both come into the same station and use the same platforms.

Roosevelt Red line is a subway. Roosevelt Orange line is "L" (above ground) but it is an easy transfer - at no cost. A tunnel connects to the Roosevelt elevated station by way of an elevator, escalator and stairs to the northwest corner of the grade-level station house, in the paid area. The tunnel emerges in the Roosevelt subway station on the east side of the mezzanine in the paid area, between the fare controls and the stairs down to the platform.
