The only question I would have is potential safety issues at the Hwy 95 intersection if there were lights. It's located at the base of a significant hill so you would have situations where semis would have to come to a complete stop after coming down the hill, or where semis would have to start climbing it from a dead stopand take long time to get up to speed. The current signals are to the west and allow a little bit of runway, so it might not be as big an issue.
