Draft EIR Released for State Route 11 and Port of Entry Project
Caltrans and the Federal Highway Administration have released the draft Environmental Impact Report on the State Route 11 and Otay Mesa East Port of Entry project. Public comment can be made through Feb. 1. SR 11 will be a 2.5-mile, four-lane state highway that will connect SR 125 and SR 905 in the United States to a new Otay Mesa East Port of Entry (POE) along the U.S.-Mexico border at Otay Mesa East. In Mexico, the corridor will connect the new POE to the Tijuana-Tecate and Tijuana-Ensenada free and toll roads. The project also includes a new Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility in the United States. A public meeting on the report will be held Jan. 19 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Ocean View Hills Elementary School, 4919 Del Sol Blvd., San Diego. Staff from Caltrans and SANDAG, along with representatives from the federal General Services Administration, will be on hand to provide information and to answer questions regarding the proposed project. Together, SR 11 and the new Otay Mesa East POE will improve the efficient movement of people, goods and services between the United States and Mexico. Caltrans has been conducting the environmental studies for the development of the proposed project. The estimated cost of the highway and the new POE is $700 million. It will be funded through tolls, fees, and other revenue sources.
