This massive setup replaced a pair of older gated signals in the early 2000s.  They both had mechanical bells.
The gates on the quad signals originally had 4" WCH incandescents, but were replaced wtih Aurora LEDs around 2009.

In mid 2017, pedestrian gates were added to the crossing.  The main signals have not been changed at all.
