GSA understands the impact San Ysidro Land Port of Entry has in the local community. We foster close working relationships with community partners and stakeholders.

Community Representatives Committee - The CRC works with communities to solicit input and feedback about the project.

Historic Preservation - GSA, as the lead agency for the project, initiated the National Historic Preservation Act, Section 106 consultation.

Environmental Review - GSA issued an Improvements Project Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in November 2013, and public comments were accepted and evaluated. The draft analyzed the environmental impacts of the revised project, including proposed modifications to the number of vehicle lanes on the southbound roadway and a bi-directional pedestrian crossing facility on the west side of the port at Virginia Avenue, in addition to LPOE improvements previously analyzed in the project’s 2009 EIS.
