Hill is providing construction management services to the U.S. GSA and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for the modernization and expansion project at the Otay Mesa Land Port of Entry. Otay Mesa is the second-busiest commercial crossing on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Work includes expansion of the pedestrian processing facilities, construction of a 34,000 SF commercial annex building, relocation of detention and Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection facilities, the construction of hazardous material processing facilities, construction of surface parking for visitors, and structured parking for employees. The project also involves commercial import improvements, including the acquisition and inclusion of a 10-acre site to improve commercial vehicle circulation, double the current inspection booth count from 9 to 18, and incorporate a dedicated return lane for trucks denied entry into the U.S., a 13,000 SF U.S. Department of Agriculture plant inspection station, and a 7,000 SF Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration facility.
