NO SOUTHBOUND VEHICLE BORDER CROSSING AT THE SAN YSIDRO LAND PORT OF ENTRY, SEPTEMBER 23-25, 2017
Starting Saturday, September 23, 2017, at 3 am and continuing through 12 pm Monday, September 25, all southbound lanes of I-5 and I-805 will be closed to traffic south of the SR-905.
Vehicular access into Mexico through the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry to the El Chaparral will be closed for 57 hours. For vehicles wanting to enter Mexico during this time, a detour to the Otay Land Port of Entry will be in place. Northbound travelers, (pedestrian and vehicular) crossing the border from Mexico and southbound pedestrians crossing the border into Mexico will be unaffected.
Follow signage at the port of entry, be alert to changes, and allow extra time to reach your destination.
During this phase of construction, a portion of southbound Interstate 5 (I-5) will be realigned and expanded into the Mexico El Chaparral Port of Entry, it is estimated to have at least three lanes going into Mexico for at least 3 months. US authorities are looking to extend one more lane as of the last Wednesday in November, so it can operate with four lanes from that date through to June 2019, the estimated date to complete construction.
