Abstract:
Significant economic interdependence exists between Southern California and Northern Mexico regions, with a large magnitude of cross-border personal travel and freight movements at the region’s ports of entry. Without mitigation steps and increased traveler information, delays and economic losses will more than double in the next ten years. Systems Engineering and affordable detection technologies can be used to determine travel times and border wait times in order to provide accurate data to industry and the traveling public, helping to inform optimal decisions regarding the movement of both goods and people. This presentation will explore the existing pilot project for Southbound Border Wait Times at the San Ysidro port of entry, along with current efforts underway to expand the system to other ports of entry along the southern border in California, as well as Northbound waits in collaboration with Mexican authorities.
