San Ysidro Port of Entry Closes for 7th Time in 8 Weekend: Caltrans

The San Ysidro Port of Entry has been closed for the 7th time in 8 weekends, Caltrans confirmed Sunday.

Caltrans announced at 11:49 a.m. that the entry was closed to southbound traffic due to protests in Mexico.

There is heavy backup on southbound I-805 and I-5 at Camino de la Plaza due to police activity. Travelers are being redirected to eastbound State Route 905 to Otay Mesa, according to Caltrans.

In previous weeks, southbound lanes into Mexico were closed as well as westbound State Route 905 to southbound Interstate 805, and westbound SR-905 to southbound Interstate 5.

Southbound traffic into Mexico was not shut down last weekend.

Protesters continue to voice their objections to a sudden hike in gas prices and recent executive actions signed by President Trump regarding border security.
