State Route (SR-) 11 and the Otay Mesa East Port of Entry (POE)-Phase I
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
County of San Diego: mixed industrial, light industrial and technology business. City of San Diego: industrial.
Document Description
The proposed action represents Phase I of a two-phase process aimed at meeting current and projected demand for the movement of people and goods between the United States and Mexico, reducing wait times and other inefficiencies associated with border crossings. Phase I would identify the preferred locations for the future implementation of SR-11 and the Otay Mesa East POE, both of which would be entirely new facilities. Phase I objectives include adoption of an SR-11 corridor, consideration and approval by the Department of State of a Presidential Permit for the POE, and possible acquisition of right-of-way (R/W) for the two facilities. Any acquisition of R/W by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) at this stage would be undertaken solely with State funds. Alternative designs and operating characteristics for each facility would be identified and studied under a separate future Phase II environmental process.
