SAN LUIS, ARIZ.—U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the Port of San Luis, in coordination with the General Services Administration, will begin construction Monday to add two additional vehicle lanes to the current six. The expansion project is intended to improve the overall inspection process at the port of entry.
"Traffic though our port continues to grow and these improvements allow CBP to effectively address the increasing volume," said Acting Port Director Roque Caza. "These two additional lanes will be a huge benefit for both travelers and the local communities."
Once the expansion project is complete, travelers entering the United States should notice a significant improvement in traffic flow. Little to no interruptions should be expected throughout this upgrade, which is expected to be completed in mid-July.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
