January 4, 2012

All lanes have reopened after a massive collapse of a canopy at the San Ysidro border crossing on September 14. There were 11 injuries and a mess of gigantic proportions created by the debris everywhere.

"Crews have worked around the clock to return things to normal as fast as possible,"

said Randy Barr, operations manager for Hensel Phelps, in a statement.

"We regret, as well, the damage done to the vehicles, which were beneath the scaffolding when it fell and we have been working to assist the owners of those vehicles."

According to Customs officials, the cause of the incident hasn't been determined yet. The construction project is being reworked to better ensure safety.
