The U.S. General Service Administration (GSA) in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) notified the implementation of a temporary detour in vehicular traffic at the Calexico West Land Port of Entry.
This detour, which aims to optimize the construction of roofed areas and inspection booths on the road, will begin next Monday August 10th from 4:00 a.m. and is expected to last a year.
If you are one of those who usually passes through this border crossing, GSA indicated that cars will be redirected southbound at this Port of Entry.
"Currently, there are three southbound lanes which expand into five inspection lanes which in turn lead to three lanes across the bridge over Rio Nuevo. During this phase of construction, the temporary lane arrangement will be the two easternmost lanes accessing the existing southbound highway, opening to three lanes across the Rio Nuevo Bridge. The location of the return lane to the U.S. will be accessible through the easternmost southbound lane just before the bridge," they said in a statement.
Specifically, this detour will be just south of the intersection of West Second Street and Cesar Chavez Boulevard, Calexico, CA, 92231.
