Skanska has completed a utility infrastructure extension for the future Otay Mesa East Port of Entry, preparing the site for construction.  

The Otay Mesa East Port of Entry project in San Diego, US, will construct a new border crossing for personal and commercial vehicles between the US and Mexico from State Route 11 (SR 11).  

The project, worth $3.3m, was commissioned by the San Diego Association of Governments and the California Department of Transportation last July.

It involved extending sanitary sewer systems and water services for Otay Water District.  

Additionally, it facilitated the installation of infrastructure for San Diego Gas & Electric, AT&T, and COX Communications to support all future points of entry (POE).

The scope of work included laying 950 linear feet of a 12in water main along Siempre Viva Road, leading to the future POE and SR 11.

The project also saw the installation of 300 linear ft of sewer for the County of San Diego Sewer, with three new manholes.  

It further included the installation of 1,000 linear feet of joint trench utility, within the same joint trench. 

This is said to have required coordination among agencies to minimise the environmental footprint of the conduits. 

The project also entailed the construction of a multiuse connector road along Siempre Viva Road for US Customs and Border Patrol agents.  

In addition, it involved approximately 10,000 cubic yards of roadway excavation, as well as the building of embankments and contouring areas to facilitate border patrol operations, among others. 

Skanska West Coast civil operations senior project engineer Elliott Adams said: “We are happy to announce the completion of the utilities extension for the future Otay Mesa Port of Entry, laying the groundwork to enhance mobility and air quality between the United States and Mexico within the San Diego port region. 

“This project relied on seamless coordination among multiple agencies, and we’re proud to have delivered the project successfully.” 

This month, Skanska secured an initial contract to commence work on Virginia Tech’s new College of Engineering facility in the US.
