GSA to Host Public Meeting for the Calexico West Land Port of Entry

Environmental assessment covers historic customs house and temporary pedestrian building

CALEXICO, Calif. ㅡ The U.S. General Services Administration will host a virtual public meeting to discuss the draft Environmental Assessment [PDF - 3 MB] for Phase 2B of the Calexico West Land Port of Entry’s modernization and expansion project.

GSA representatives will also talk about the project’s final phase of construction, which received more than $100 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law in February 2022.
