Otay Mesa Border Crossing

New Mexico-US border Crossing: Otay Mesa II Will Begin Operations in 2024

The purpose is to make the region of Baja California and California (USA) more competitive and efficient, informed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE).

Mexico will have a new border crossing with the United States. Mesa de Otay II will begin operating in 2024 to make the Baja California and California (US) region more competitive and efficient, informed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE).

According to the agency, the new crossing will be multimodal, which will improve security and "facilitate the flow of goods, services, and people, in an agile and efficient manner". It will consist of 10 interchangeable lanes depending on traffic: five for light vehicles and five for cargo transportation.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador met on Thursday with Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard and the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, Ken Salazar, to inspect the border zone that will serve as a new connection point between Tijuana and San Diego.

The SRE informed that the construction of the new border crossing point is a joint effort between Mexico and U.S. agencies. UNAM will be in charge of the design and it will be presented next March. The North American Development Bank will be the custodian of the project's income and its dispersal, as it is a binational project.

"It is the largest investment that has been made on the border in this area so far in the 21st century", informed the Secretary of Foreign Affairs through a video on Facebook.

Ebrard Casaubón assured that it is the busiest border in the world, since 40 thousand people, 60 thousand vehicles, and 4 thousand 500 trailers cross it every day.

"The executive plans have already been drawn up and, after two years of work, they are in the process of starting to carry out the works," he explained.

According to the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT), the project consists of the construction of a new mixed-use border crossing in Tijuana-San Diego, approximately 3.2 kilometers east of the existing Otay-Otay Mesa I border port.
