US-Mexico Border Prepares for Carmageddon

To cross the US-Mexico border in San Diego is a process that takes a long time to get through.

However for almost three days in September, cars will be stopped from heading to Tijuana through San Ysidro.

The closure will go from 3 am on September 23rd to noon on September 25th by the U.S. General Services Administration to fix parts of Interstate 5.

This closure marks the third and final phase of the $741 million expansion of the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

Thousands of drivers will be affected and authorities are already making comparisons to the Carmageddon of 2011 when large parts of the 405 freeway on Los Angeles was closed for a weekend.

In this closure, all vehicle traffic going into Mexico to be rerouted to Otay Mesa with only five inspection lanes.
