Tunnel's lights are constantly out. The biggest safety concern there is no visibility of who is in the tunnel when utilizing it from the east bound lane (NFATC side). There is a 90 degree turn and impossible to see. Solution: It would be helpful to have a convex mirror installed so you can see what is around the corner before entering. A homeless man lives in the tunnel, but I have also seen group of young men urinating in the tunnel or "tagging". Should an incident take place in this tunnel there is no way to sound for help (cars passing ahead make too much noise) best thing is to install mirror so people can make a decision to utilize the tunnel or not (better solution install "blue light" type system which will notify police.)
