San Luis I Land Port of Entry
GSA held its final meeting for the San Luis I Final Environmental Impact Statement on 10/20.
The San Luis I Land Port of Entry (LPOE) is set to undergo a modernization and expansion project. Phase I includes site development and infrastructure, expanded northbound (NB) privately owned vehicle (POV) lanes, NB primary and preprimary inspection canopies, associated NB secondary processing, expanded southbound (SB) POV lanes, SB primary and secondary inspection and processing building, parking and more. Phase II will focus on pedestrian, administrative, and other facilities to support the CBP mission.
Modernization and Expansion
- Expansion of northbound pedestrian-processing facilities will increase from seven to 10 lanes, reducing screening times and increasing visitor and employee safety.
- Modernize processing equipment
- Redesign of pedestrian circulation flow to support current U.S. Department of Homeland Security - Customs and Border Protection procedures
- The LPOE is the westernmost Arizona port near the California border (approximately 4 miles) and is the primary crossing location for farmworkers transported to agricultural fields daily across Yuma County
- Processes approximately 3 million vehicles and 2.5 million pedestrians each year
- Minimize impacts to the natural environment, including vegetation, water resources and floodplains
GSA conducted an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the project with input from the public via public meetings and comments.
