After much advocacy from the Chamber and partner organizations, PedWest southbound was opened on July 31st, operating daily from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. The completion of this project will significantly improve the efficient movement of the 63,000 pedestrians crossing each day by providing a second pedestrian entrance into Mexico at El Chaparral-San Ysidro Port of Entry.
PedWest will help relieve congestion during the upcoming vehicular lane closures during the realignment of I-5 south. Improving our region’s border infrastructure is a key priority for the Chamber and vital to our region’s economy. The San Diego-Tijuana region continues to solidify its reputation as a model for building bridges and unifying its binational community.
