The San Ysidro Land Port of Entry West Pedestrian Facility
SAN YSIDRO, CALIFORNIA – NOVEMBER 26, 2018: The San Ysidro Land Port of Entry West Pedestrian Facility, on the USA Mexico border.

Built in the 1970’s, and upgraded in 2014 with a $577 million project to expand the lane and facilities. It moves Interface 5 further west, adds a new northbound inspection facility and adds 1/3 more northbound lanes.

As of January 2020, this 3-phases project is complete. The project successfully gives more capacity to the screeners, more technology to the department of ICE. It also allows for a safer and cleaner southbound flow of traffic into Mexico. On the north-bound side, it is not faster, but it allows for a more secure process and ensures the safety of the agents and officers involved in protecting the United States from foreign terrorists.

San Ysidro’s choice for Mexican Car Insurance is MexInsurance.com®. All policies automatically include Roadside Assistance and everything is done online.
