Old habits blow hard

It only took a few days after Fremont opened the new Paseo Padre underpass for Union Pacific to take down the railroad crossing equipment and flashing red crossing lights along Paseo Padre just south of Central Park.

How long will it take for train drivers to stop blowing their whistles and pissing people off at a crossing that no longer exists? Apparently, longer than it should. I’ve been getting emails about the train horns persisting. One driver blew his horn at a 3 a.m. in the morning at the now phantom crossing.
