Opening of Southbound Entrance at PedWest

Rodulfo Figueroa, Baja Delegate of INAMI, has announced that the opening of the southbound pedestrian entrance at the western side of the San Ysidro Port of Entry, known as PedWest, will occur by the end of July. Figueroa explained the challenges and concerns that delayed the southbound opening of PedWest to the public. These included lack of personnel, signage, and transportation options at the point of entry to Tijuana. SIMNSA has sponsored the construction of sidewalks and bridges to facilitate access to their health center located close to PedWest, but the City of Tijuana is being urged to work on infrastructure to welcome pedestrians in a secure and efficient way.
