Entrance lanes to Mexico will close for 9 hours Monday, May 13

In this phase the first four of ten lanes that will form the new access to Mexico will be opened. In June the same will be done with the remaining six for a total of ten lines.

The border community will have a new vehicular access from San Ysidro to Tijuana starting next May 14, the General Services Administration (GSA) informed today.

For this reason, the agency announced the temporary closure of nine lanes of the lanes at the end of Interstate 5, necessary to perform the alignment work with the new route to the Mexican customs El Chaparral.

During this scheduled closing of 10 o’clock on the night of Monday, May 13 at 7 a.m. on Tuesday 14, vehicular access to Tijuana will be through a lane of I-805. Within this period, the exit on the highway to Camino de la Plaza will also remain closed.

“It is recommended that travelers plan ahead of time for possible delays, monitor media and traffic reports, and adhere to the signage that will be posted to announce changes in the patterns of the affected highways,” authorities urged.

In this phase the first four of ten lanes that will form the new access to Mexico will be opened. In June the same will be done with the remaining six for a total of ten lines.

The route from the highway will be the same as always, only the traffic will be diverted to the right side shortly before the current curve (in front of the extinct Puerta México).

The change that will attract the most attention of those who transit frequently between both countries is that each of the lanes will have an inspection booth.

This infrastructure is considered to be used by agents of the Customs and Border Protection Office (CBP) to carry out their operations to review the vehicles that leave the country.

However, authorities of said agency have indicated that for now said operations will not be permanent, that is, they will be carried out without prior notice and sporadically, as they are currently done at the end of the highway.
