CBP Pilot Program Intended to Ease Crowded Downtown Port

October 30, 2017

Customs and Border Protection wants to know whether it can draw long lines of traffic away from downtown over to the modernized Mariposa shipping port of entry.

"There’s a lot more space and we’re able to move traffic a lot faster through Mariposa if they start using that port of entry," CBP spokeswoman Marcia Armendariz said.

The agency will open extra lanes at the newer port from 6 to 8 a.m. to keep the flow moving.
