Additional Lane Open to Accommodate Travel into Mexico

San Diego -- The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) today announced the reopening of the southbound Interstate 5 and Interstate 805 freeways at the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry (LPOE) on September 25, 2017 at 12 a.m., 12 hours ahead of schedule. The southbound freeways were closed south of the California State Route (SR) 905 freeway on September 23, 2017 to accommodate Phase 3 of GSA’s San Ysidro LPOE modernization and expansion project.

Additionally, GSA will reopen a total of four I-5 southbound freeway lanes south of the Camino de la Plaza overpass for vehicles traveling to Mexico. One lane will remain closed to facilitate the construction of the interim curve to El Chaparral and the additional Phase 3 permanent infrastructure.

“GSA is pleased to reopen the freeway ahead of schedule and with more available southbound lanes than originally projected,” said Anthony Kleppe, GSA LPOE Program Manager. “This weekend’s closure was a critical part of the Phase 3 project to realign and expand the southbound I-5 corridor from five to 10 lanes. Construction was well planned and executed during the closure with close to 300 people working to complete the project. GSA would like to thank its partners at Caltrans, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, San Diego Police and the California Highway Patrol for their support during the closure. GSA also thanks the travelling public for their patience this weekend as we completed crucial work on the roadway.”

As GSA proceeds with its Phase 3 construction project, travelers are advised to continue monitoring posted signage and reduce speed through the construction zone. Signs will be posted to announce changes in traffic patterns within the construction area.

“We still have a significant amount work to do in order to complete the realignment and expansion project by summer 2019,” said Kleppe. “But with the continued support from local stakeholders, our counterparts in Mexico, and travelers from the binational communities, GSA is confident we’ll deliver a world class, state-of-the art facility for our federal agencies working here at the international border and for travelers crossing the border at the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry.”
