(Calexico Port funding clears another hurdle)….It is first phase funding for the expansion of the Downtown Port.
The $98 million funding bill has cleared the House. It now goes on to the Senate and the Presidents signature before it is finally approved. The plan is to expand the Downtown Port into what used to be the commercial port, with traffic from the expanded lanes entering Calexico on Cesar Chavez Boulevard, taking the traffic congestion away from Imperial Avenue. Pedestrian crossers would still use the current Downtown Port.
