I-15 Joint Port of Entry Project

NOD - Notice of Determination

Document Description
Caltrans, in conjunction with the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), the California Department of General Services, and the California Highway Patrol (CHP), propose to construct a Joint Port of Entry (JPOE) inspection facility on I-15 near the California/Nevada border. The new facility would be located on the northwest side of southbound I-15 between the Yates Well Road interchange and the Nipton Road interchange, along Postmile 177.3 to 181.1. The proposed JPOE would provide for CDFA agricultural inspection and CHP commercial vehicle enforcement. Upon completion of the proposed project, all traffic entering California on southbound I-15 would be diverted through the JPOE. Also upon completion of the new JPOE facility, the existing agricultural inspection station located near Yermo, along Postmile 87.2 to 87.5, would be removed and that portion of southbound I-15 would be restored to uninterrupted traffic flow.
