These quad gates replaced a pair of gateless signals with a mechanical bell in the early 2000s.
The gates originally had 4" WCH incandescent gates, but were replaced with Aurora LEDs around 2009.

In mid 2017, pedestrian gates were added to the crossing.  There have been no changes to the main signals.
