San Ysidro Land Port of Entry - Phase 3
The San Ysidro Land Port of Entry (LPOE) Phase 3 project in San Diego, CA, is designed to address the travel delays due to increased traffic volume in the busiest land port in the world.
This project is being completed as an internal joint venture of Atkinson and Clark. Southbound, the team will expand I-5 from five to ten lanes, fabricate and install ten new inspection booths, construct new southbound primary and secondary vehicle inspection canopies, construct a 562-car employee parking structure, and build access roadways through the LPOE to and from Mexico. Northbound, the team will expand the northbound primary vehicle inspection canopy and build eight additional lanes with 15 new inspection booths.
Performing work at the world's busiest border crossing comes with inherent challenges. The team takes extra measures to plan, prioritize, and execute the work in close coordination with Customs and Border Protection to ensure security is maintained at all times.
The project is designed to achieve LEED® Platinum certification and will feature photovoltaic panels and 450 geothermal wells—supplementing the campus’ existing HVAC system.
