Chamber President & CEO Jerry Sanders, and Executive Director of International Business Affairs Kenia Zamarripa joined city and county officials last week to celebrate the beginning of the $60.6 million construction project on San Diego’s La Media Road.
The Chamber has worked to help secure funding for the project which will expand and improve part of the designated truck route for the Otay Mesa Port of Entry. This is a vital segment of the region’s trade corridor which facilitates the movement of goods across our border, with the Otay POE processing over $50B in trade every year and up to 4,000 trucks per day.
Expected to be completed in 2024, the project will help alleviate congestion at the crossing increasing efficiency at the border.
