Release Date: 
March 25, 2015

TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection has initiated a pedestrian expansion project aimed at enhancing and expanding their ability to address a growing number of pedestrians arriving at the Port of San Luis. The introduction of new kiosk technology and two additional lanes may help reduce wait times.

Port Director John Schwamm says the project will be completed in four phases and consist of eight pre-primary kiosks enabling travelers to input their travel documents prior to making contact with CBP officers at the processing booths.

Also included will be an expansion of the pedestrian area with eight new processing booths and the remodeling of an existing secondary area. LED displays will also inform travelers of queuing assignments and pertinent traveler information. 

Office of Field Operations officials expect the project to take between nine to 12 months for completion.
