The construction project, which would be carried out in partnership with a number of local, state, federal and bi-national entities, is designed to alleviate pressure on the current Port of Entry at San Luis, Arizona (designated as San Luis I) by allowing for the separation of commercial traffic from non-commercial/privately operated vehicles.

As provided in E.O. 11423, the Department is circulating this application to concerned agencies for comment.
