Calexico Downtown Port of Entry Increases Number of Inspection Booths

Calexico, Calif. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials Sunday opened an additional three inspection booths in an effort to more efficiently accommodate travelers entering the country at the Calexico downtown port of entry.

The three booths will be added to existing lanes of traffic as stacked booths. The stacked booth concept consists of having two booths in one vehicle lane allowing two CBP officers to process two vehicles at the same time in the same lane. The stacked booths are located on vehicle lanes three, five, and eight and have increased the number of inspection booths from 10 to 13.
