ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. -- Improvements to the Midland Avenue railroad crossing in Elmwood Park seem to have made a difference, reports northjersey.com.

There were 14 incidents at the crossing in the past decade, including one death and four injuries, reports northjersey.com.

Local officials said summer work crews last year flattened the approach to the tracks from the hill it used to be, removed vegetation from drivers' sightline, and improved signage and signaling, reports northjersey.com.

Elmwood Park Mayor Richard Mola said it's much improved and there have been no incidents in eight months other than a stalled car that was removed without incident, reports northjersey.com.
