GSA Opens Pedestrian Processing Facility, Transit Center at San Ysidro Land Port of Entry

San Ysidro Port of EntryThe General Services Administration and the Customs and Border Protection have led the opening ceremony for a pedestrian processing facility and a transit center near the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry in California.

The GSA-built 22,300-square-foot PedWest pedestrian infrastructure lies to the west of the San Ysidro LPOE and comprises twelve northbound lanes and two reversible lanes, GSA said Friday.

GSA plans to build another pedestrian infrastructure on the east side of the port during the next phase of construction.

According to the agency, the Virginia Avenue Transit Center will provide pickup and drop off points for pedestrians through the accommodation of taxis, buses, and privately owned vehicles.

The center is built to help pedestrians gain access to mass transit services through the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System trolley’s blue line and buses.

“These facilities are a crucial strategic national investment, helping secure our borders, and contributing hundreds of millions of dollars to the American economy,” said GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth.
