UPDATE July 4, 2016: The regular entrance to Via Internacional is currently OPEN from the southbound El Chaparral border crossing at San Ysidro. However, construction continues so we want you to be prepared in the case that they close the entrance again and direct traffic to use the detour depicted below.
SOUTHBOUND DIRECTIONS TO VIA INTERNACIONAL DURING CONSTRUCTION:
1. When you cross the southbound border at El Chaparral, San Ysidro, the usual entrance to the Playas de Tijuana/Rosarito toll road to the right will be closed. Stay over toward the left and follow signs for “CENTRO/ZONA RIO”
2. Continue up the ramp following signs for “PASEO DE LOS HEROES/CENTRO”
3. Stay in the right lane and take the ramp for “PLAYAS DE TIJUANA/MEX 1 ROSARITO CUOTA”
Continuing on this ramp will take you directly onto Via Internacional to the toll road.
*NOTE: Be careful at this last step where there’s an orange detour sign for “Playas de Tijuana Rosarito-Ensenada” with a misleading arrow that points to the left. Ignore the arrow and take the ramp to the RIGHT, as in the directions above.*
