Current traffic congestion

CURRENT TRAFFIC CONGESTION

Traffic delays in Tijuana due to lack of infrastructure create long

delays for Trucks to reach the Customs Facilities.

Once in line, at times, trucks have from 2 to 4.5 hours delay to

clear the entire Customs Process

Serious delays are also encountered during peak traffic hours

on the US side to reach the Port, Rail and Distribution Facilities

In the Los Angeles area.

Truck travel time between Long Beach and Otay Mesa in 1985

was approximately 2.5 hours one way; currently travel time is in

the range of 3.5 to 4.25 hours per trip.

NOW THE GOOD NEWS

NOT ALL NEWS IS BAD NEWS, CURRENTLY THERE ARE NUMEROUS PROJECT THAT COULD IMPROVE THE GOODS MOVEMENT IN THE REGIONT SOME MAY CREATE ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC PROBLEMS HOWEVER MANY MAY ACTUALY IMPROVE OUR TRAFFIC SITUATION

  • The Port of Ensenada is working on an expansion project that together with a potential Intermodal Facility in the Tijuana area, could reduce some of the Long Beach-Tijuana Truck Traffic.

  • There is a proposed new port in Punta Coronet south of Ensenada that once completed could remove a significant amout of Mexico and East Bound US traffic from Long Beach.

  • The Port of San Diego is also working on an expansion project that will not do anything to improve the South Bay or Cross Border Traffic, but could reduce some of the Long Beach-San Diego truck traffic

  • There are a number of other smaller projects in the works that could do some good to reduce traffic congenstion.

  • The most significant of these projects is a joint venture between the short haul Rail Road and some Intermodal Truckers to build a full service Intermodal facility in the Tijuana/Tecate region. The significance of this project is that it would tie together many of these other ventures and could move several hundred trucks off the road between San Diego and the Los Angeles area by diverting the traffic from over the road to over the rail through the Tijuana-Plaster City rail corridor thus moving freight east bound without having to take space in our current highway.

RAIL PORT LOGISTICS S.A. De C.V.

THE PROPOSED FACILITY WOULD TIE TOGETHER THE PORT OF ENSENADA WITH THE RAILROAD VIA THE ENSENADA-TIJUANA T7 TRUCK CORRIDOR

THE FACILITY ALSO PLANS TO HOST CUSTOMS FACILITY TO PROVIDE DIRECT IMPORT AND EXPORT RAIL SERVICE WITHOUT THE NEED TO CLUTTER THE CURRENT CUSTOMS FACILITIES AT OTAY MESA
