SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Construction started Tuesday at the San Ysidro border-crossing may slow traffic through July 7.
Up to three lanes will be closed to accommodate work for the redesign of the port of entry, according to Customs and Border Protection officials, who urged drivers who normally use the San Ysidro crossing to use the Otay Mesa checkpoint instead.
Ultimately, the work should contribute to smoother operations at San Ysidro, Chris Maston of CBP said.
"However, we ask for the public's patience as we work toward reaching that goal and their confidence that we are doing everything in our power to minimize traffic disruptions and delays," Maston said.
The lane closings should last less than 30 hours at a time, he said. Most of the work will be done overnight, starting about 10 p.m.
More information for travelers is available by calling (619) 690-8999 for San Ysidro border crossing and (619) 671-8999 for Otay Mesa.
