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

Yes (Please explain below in comments section)

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.

The bridge construction is causing people to be sitting on the tracks while traffic is turning left into AEP. Due to the construction you can not see turn signals several cars ahead. Going south there is no way to get out of the way if you happen to get trapped on the tracks. The construction is creating a dangerous  crossing. The light before the bridge is after the tracks going south. Traffic does not have enough time to get through the construction and is piling up on the tracks. PLEASE FIX. Closing ht eAEP entrance  ( they have 2) would solve a big part of the issue.
