Reopening northbound primary inspection lanes

Binational Communication
San Ysidro Land Port of Entry

The Governments of the United States and Mexico advise that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) reopened northbound primary inspection lanes 2 – 8 at the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry on Wednesday, September 17, 2014.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials will have the ability to staff and operate all northbound lanes beginning at 8:00 A.M.  Notwithstanding, during the upcoming weeks, there will continue to be intermittent, short term lane closures (1 – 3 lanes at a time) to complete final lane work.  Users are advised to monitor posted signs and continue to use available lanes.  With this reopening, the port now has 25 lanes with 46 northbound inspection booths in operation.
