San Luis I Land Port of Entry
The port experiences much higher traffic volumes than it was originally designed to accommodate. Furthermore, the port’s facilities are significantly undersized and require upgrading to meet the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s current mission requirements. The modernization and expansion project will improve efficiencies and traffic flows, reduce wait times, increase CBP’s processing capacity and operational security by effectively deploying the latest technology to identify high risk activity and shipments and combat drug trafficking.
The project includes site development and infrastructure, expanding northbound privately owned vehicle lanes from eight to 16, primary and preprimary vehicle inspection canopies, and secondary vehicle processing area. Southbound privately owned vehicle improvements include expanded southbound facilities with fixed inspection infrastructure for CBP’s mission, primary and secondary inspection and processing building, and employee parking. It also includes increased pedestrian inspection lanes from 10 to 14 as well as a new administrative facility to support the CBP mission.
