November 3, 2012 (Tijuana) -- On November 1, 2012, the new border crossing from San Ysidro to Tijuana began operations. The crossing, known as El Chaparral, will have 22 lanes equipped with the latest technology for fast access to Mexico.

Vehicles headed southbound on I-5 will turn right once they reach the border onto the modern facilities which create a more convenient crossing into Tijuana and other locations.

"El Chaparral" also connects to a set of new bridges leading to tourist destinations like Rosarito Beach, Ensenada, as well as Downtown, Avenida Revolución, Zona Río, and different areas of Tijuana.
