According to a release by the U.S Customs and Protection the new canopy is expected to be built within the next week.
“CBP is committed to improve the ports efficiency. Sometimes this requires infrastructure enhancements and construction that may cause delays,” said interim Port Director Michael Humphries. “We will continue to make every effort to minimize impacts to the travelers and ask for everyone’s patience.”
CBP suggests people take the Mariposa crossing during peak traffic hours and to check wait times on the border before traveling.
