We are proud to announce the following awarded funds, supported by the Otay Mesa Chamber of Commerce:
The U.S. Department of Transportation is slated to award SANDAG and Caltrans $49.28 million to complete Segment 2 of State Route 11 (SR11) in Otay Mesa along with two southbound connectors linking SR 905, SR 125, and SR 11, federal officials have announced.
This border infrastructure project is critical to facilitating the growing volume of trade between the United States and Mexico, and alleviating chronic congestion along the San Diego-Tijuana border. SR 11 will eventually connect to a new state-of-the-art border crossing, known as Otay Mesa East. The goal is to operate this port of entry (POE) with a 20-minute border wait time to reach primary inspection.
