TIJUANA — This month’s opening of a much-needed pedestrian border entrance from Tijuana to San Ysidro has been cause for celebration north of the border. But in Baja California, there has been mostly uproar over the quality of a temporary structure built by Mexico’s federal government to access the new U.S. PedWest facility.
After nearly two weeks of public pressure from Baja California politicians, the business community on both sides of the border and pedestrian border-crossers, Mexico’s federal government on Thursday announced that it is stepping up its construction schedule for a permanent structure. It is now slated to open in September, rather than the previously announced December opening.
