Photos from January 2011 by SantaFebuff showing a then brand new installation with 2 gated signals and 1 pedestrian gate.  These were installed due to the opening of UP's Global IV intermodal yard.  These replaced a pair of mid 2000s WCH signals with 2 E Bells, gate mechanisms, 12"x24" 1st Gen LEDs, and Aurora LED gate lights.  These new signals at the time had WCH E Bells that were mounted below the lights.  Also, note the pedestrian gate had a Safetran base and Safetran gate mechanism at the time.

By 2013, the WCH E Bells were replaced with NEG E Bells.
In 2012 or 2013, the gate holders were replaced on both main signals.
Between 2013 and 2015, the pedestrian gate was replaced by a newer one with a Siemens base and Siemens gate mechanism.
The western signal's gate and the end of the eastern signal's gate were replaced.

The newer pedestrian gate.  I'm guess the old one was hit by a truck, since it seems very odd they'd replace it so soon, and given that it would soon be replaced itself.

In August 2016, the crossing was closed for about a week, and during that time, the eastern signal was moved due to the addition of a 2nd main track and was also moved closer to the road.  Initially, the block gate striping had been removed and the gate was left with just the older style striping, but by early 2017, the gate was changed to the newer style striping.  The western signal's gate appears to have been replaced too.
By early 2017, 2 new quad signals were installed awaiting activation, as well as 2 new pedestrian gates.

By April 2017, the new quad gates and pedestrian gates were activated and the old pedestrian gate had been removed.
