The contentious eleven-degree angle crossing San Rafael created in 1997, long after rail traffic ceased.

Read the Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration, dated December 2015:

It appears from this document (p. 30) that the basic roadway and rail alignments will remain as-is. However, in addition to the usual comprehensive grade crossing protection of typical SMART crossings, SMART dispatch will be able to monitor this crossing on CCTV. [It would be better if this CCTV feed could be viewed from the SMART cab as well.] Finally, SMART trains will run no faster than 15 MPH through here, which will be enforced by PTC.
