San Ysidro POE Traffic Reopens After Closing Due to Protests Again

The Mexican Interior Department reported a total of more than 1,500 people have been detained for looting or disturbances nationwide

Southbound I-5 and I-805 have reopened to traffic at the San Ysidro port of entry after being closed for several hours, Caltrans says. 

For the second weekend in a row, protests in Tijuana, Mexico, have diverted traffic at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, Caltrans officials said. 

Sunday afternoon, authorities closed Southbound Interstate 5 and I-805 at the U.S.-Mexico border. 

Traffic was diverted to State Route 905 during the closure. 

Across the border, protesters continue to voice their objections to a sudden hike in gas prices in Mexico: 20 percent in one day.

Last weekend, the San Ysidro port of entry closed briefly in the southbound direction due to protesters blocking the lanes.

No further details were available.
