Impacts of Border Delays at California-Baja California Ports of Entry

 

project description

POE Map ImageIn April 2016, SANDAG, in partnership with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Imperial County Transportation Commission (ICTC), began a study called A Fresh Look at Impacts of Border Delays at California-Baja California Land Ports of Entry.

Building upon previous studies and data collected in the California-Mexico border region, this study will assess the economic and air quality/climate impacts caused by border delays at California-Baja California ports of entry (POEs): San Ysidro-Puerta México, Otay Mesa-Mesa de Otay, Tecate-Tecate, Calexico-Mexicali, Calexico East-Mexicali II, and Andrade-Los Algodones. The study is scheduled to be completed in late 2017.





 The main tasks of this study include:
 • Conduct surveys/interviews at California-Baja California POEs
 • Collect border wait time data
 • Develop and implement an outreach plan for both economic and air quality/climate
 • Estimate economic and air quality/climate impacts of border delays
 • Develop study recommendations
