SR-11/Otay Mesa East Port of Entry Project Receives Funding
SANDAG announced that $49 million is coming to the San Diego region to complete Segment 2 of SR-11 in Otay Mesa along with two southbound connectors linking SR-905, SR-125, and SR-11. Aimed to help relieve chronic congestion along the San Diego-Tijuana border, the SR-11/Otay Mesa East Port of Entry Project, led by SANDAG and Caltrans, received this funding through the FASTLANE program. As of their announcement, the SR-11 project is the only project in California to be awarded a FASTLANE grant in this round of funding.
HELIX Environmental Planning prepared environmental documentation for the SR-11/Otay Mesa East Port of Entry Project as well as biological surveys and a natural environmental study, community impact assessment, noise study report, and visual impact assessment. In 2013, the National Association of Environmental Professionals presented HELIX with the “National Environmental Excellence” Award for NEPA Excellence for this project.
