The San Ysidro Land Port of Entry three-phase modernization and expansion project is intended to enhance U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s ability to conduct its mission at the busiest Land Port of Entry in the Western Hemisphere.

Phase II includes demolition of the current administrative building and construction of a new Pedestrian Building, renovations to the existing Historic Customs House and extensive renovations to the courtyard connecting the Pedestrian building to the Historic Customs House, including new hardscape, retaining walls, shade structures and pedestrian bridges.

The Pedestrian Building consists of two separate two- and three-story steel-frame buildings interconnected with clear ETFE roof and walls creating a large air-conditioned clear story. This structure, which support administration functions and cross border processing, connects to the existing Head House structure via a multi-floor pedestrian bridge and PV roof enclosure.
