Starting in July, thousands of pedestrians can expect a choice when crossing the border from Tijuana to San Ysidro. A new entrance called PedWest is scheduled to open on the west side of the port’s vehicle lanes, augmenting the current entrance on the east. The PedWest entrance initially will have 12 lanes that connect with Mexico’s El Chaparral facility. The plan for PedWest is that 10 lanes normally would serve pedestrians entering the United States, with two lanes set aside for southbound crossers. But depending on demand, their directions could be reversed.
