This is SO overdue. What a teeth-banging crossing.

Has this project started already? Live near the grade crossing, tons of noise already, Monday & Tuesday, midnight to 2AM -- trucks, banging on the rails, can they start early w/o notice?

Am told by Caltrain the noise is just "preliminary work". Can't wait til Friday.
