constructed before July 1, 2014, the commissioner may order a railroad common carrier
to construct lighting adjacent to a portion of track where employees are performing
switching, inspection, maintenance, repair, or fueling activities, or require a railroad
common carrier to modify existing lighting to conform with the standards set forth by
