CBP Opens Two Additional Lanes at San Luis, Arizona Port of Entry
The U.S. General Services Administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and the city of San Luis, Arizona, celebrated the construction of two additional northbound lanes for privately owned vehicles traveling into the United States at the San Luis I Land Port of Entry.
The 15-month expansion project increased the northbound lanes from 8 to 10 at one of the area’s most congested land ports of entry. These additional lanes may increase capacity by 25 percent for travelers entering the United States for work and personal reasons.
“This expansion will be a huge benefit for this port of entry, and for the San Luis-Sonora, Mexico border crossing community,” said William K. Brooks, CBP Acting Director of Field Operations.
CBP said that one of the driving factors for this expansion project was the desire to complete the construction before the start of this year’s agricultural season. The two additional lanes were officially opened on August 23, 2012, and are expected to help reduce the wait times for travelers during one of the busiest times of year.
