  • Brief Description

    The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is currently in the process of completing the Expansion & Reconfiguration Project at the San Luis I LPOE in Arizona.

    The San Luis I Land Port of Entry (LPOE) is located on 12.1 acres of and at the intersection of Highway 95 and the International Border with Mexico in San Luis, Arizona. The facility was originally constructed in 1984 as a multimodal commercial and non-commercial port; however, in 2010 the commercial operations were shifted to the new San Luis II LPOE located approximately eight miles to the east. Currently it is the second busiest noncommercial land port of entry in Arizona and operates a total of eight (8) privately owned vehicle (POV) lanes, including four (4) Ready Lanes and one (1) SENTRI lane. More than 3 million POVs and 2.5 million pedestrians are processed annually, and these numbers are expected to continue to steadily rise in the coming years. Given the facility’s age, many of the structures and building systems are nearing or past their operational life and do not comply with the GSA P100 Facilities Standards or the U.S. Custom & Border Protection’s (CBP) Design Guide. The outdated facility can no longer effectively support nor enforce the missions of CBP due to increasing traffic demands and declining structural quality. This project will involve both new construction and renovation of existing facilities to expand and modernize the facility to address these issues.
