Surface/Pavement - Is there an issue with the ROAD at this crossing?

 

Humped Crossing - The road rises before the tracks and drops after, creating a hill or hump in the road with the tracks at the top.

 

Blocked Crossing - There is a train blocking the crossing for an extended period of time.

 

Comments - Please elaborate on any of the issues reported above.

This crossing has little to no warning on a downgrade, blind hill, with a 55 mph speed limit.  We were pulling a 15 ton trailer on a super duty track, and let the tracks just as the gates were coming up.  Had we been in a semi, we would not have been able to stop.  Need warning further up on road, and flashing light when train is present at bottom of hill. Thank you for helping keep drivers safe.
