Nogales, Ariz. - U. S. Customs and Border Protection at the Mariposa Port of Entry, in coordination with the General Services Administration, announces the move to new passenger-vehicle and commercial primary lanes.
When the Mariposa Port opens its gates for daily operations at 6 a.m. on Sunday, April 29, traffic will flow through new lanes. The adjacent Mariposa Cargo Facility will open with new lanes and a temporary truck-dock on Monday, April 30.
To ensure the safety of all travelers and construction crews, please approach the port with caution. Posted signage will point drivers directly to the new inspection booths.
