San Luis I lane expansion: A high impact, small price tag project
By Anthony Kleppe
In what may well serve as a blueprint for future projects, the Pacific Rim Region recently reached a major construction milestone at the San Luis I Land Port of Entry in Arizona. On June 12, 2012, GSA completed the installation of a new space frame canopy that will provide shading for two new northbound vehicle inspection lanes.
The new lanes will increase inspection capacity and complement the six existing inspection lanes. Additionally, the below prospectus project exemplifies the collaborative efforts and strategic partnership between the Arizona Department of Transportation, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and GSA.
By implementing this innovative project management approach, GSA was able to successfully complete a project that has a high operational impact at a relatively small cost. The expansion will not only benefit port operations but also the local community and general traveling public.
Senior Asset Manager Anthony Kleppe will be working with the city of San Luis to plan the opening date.
