CBP Advises SENTRI Members of Possible Delays at Southern California Border Crossing

Release Date: 
November 28, 2012

San Ysidro, Calif. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials are advising members of the potential for longer than 15 minute wait times through the vehicle SENTRI lanes at the San Ysidro port of entry.

Due to the modernization and construction of six vehicle lanes adjacent to the SENTRI lanes, port management will be limited in the number of lanes available to process SENTRI traffic.

Construction of the vehicle lanes is expected to continue through April 2013.

CBP officials made a commitment to limiting SENTRI wait times to 15 minutes or less, unfortunately due to the current construction phase; CBP may not be able to achieve that goal with the current port configuration during peak travel periods.

CBP officials encourage SENTRI travelers to build extra time into their trips in the event they cross during periods of exceptionally heavy traffic. Travelers may wish to look to alternative entry routes such as the nearby Otay Mesa port of entry.
