Upgrade to Hamburg Turnpike in Butler, NJ

As seen in this video, two of the pairs of lights at this crossing (both facing the same direction, interestingly enough) have been upgraded to WCH 12x20 inch lights with LEDs:


According to the uploader, this was done because the incandescent lights were hard to see on this side in the afternoon sunlight, making it unsafe (especially since the crossing is gateless). No other changes have occured here.

Here's how the crossing looked prior to the upgrade:

There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...
