One thought on “City of Santa Ana railroad crossing construction update”
  1. Signalling systems and crossing gates can fail. When approaching the crossing west bound on Santa Clara, there is no way to see an approaching train. I suggest you consider installation of mirrors that would allow a driver to see up and down the tracks.

    I would be happy to have the train horns silenced or at least a reduction of the extent of the signalling late at night.
