Photos from March 2008.  At the time, the signals on Division St. were older ones with 12"x20" Safetran incandescents, WRRS gate mechanisms, and 4" RECO incandescent gate lights.  The signals on Lincoln St. was the same way, except with a Safetran gate mechanism.

In late 2008, a new bungalow appeared behind the current bungalow, but this does not appear to be for the crossing.  I'm still not sure what it's for.
In late 2008, the signal on Lincoln St. received 4" RECO LED gate lights, but by 2010, were reverted back to incandescent!
By 2009, the gate light closest to the gate mechanism on the eastern signal was LED, while the rest were still incandescent.
In June 2009, the telegraph poles were removed.
By the end of 2010, all gate lights on the eastern signal were LED.

I had noted that by June 2011, all crossings around Coal City had received LEDs, except this one, which made me curious about the future of these signals.
On July 11, 2011, I noticed BNSF was going to close the crossing for repairs.  I went out to see the work and those videos can be seen here and here.

When I went past the crossing on July 17, new signals were installed on Division St., not just any signals, but they were the brand new signals that were installed at Oak St. just 2 years before.  Now that Oak St. closed, they moved those signals over to 113 as these were about the oldest crossing signals in Coal City and protected a very busy road.  Interestingly, the new eastern signal has the same Safetran base that the old signal had.

New eastern signal.  I believe this was also the eastern signal at Oak St. just with a GS Type 2 added to it and it's using the old Safetran base from the previous signal.

The grade is all concrete.  Some new concrete slabs were added to the western end of the crossing to replaced broken ones.

In 2012, the Lincoln St. signal received newer gate striping.  By 2013, the Division St. signals got the treatment.
