Directions & Maps

Map & DirectionsFrom San Diego:

Go east on Interstate 8 to Route 111 South towards Calexico (approximately 110 miles from where I-8 & I-5 intersect).  It is a good idea to gas up in Calexico before crossing the border.  The original/Old Border (Westerly border crossing) is about 7.4 miles from the 111 exit off I-8. You reach the “Old Border” by staying on Route 111.  It is open 24 hours a day.

To the east, the newer border (or “New Border”) is open from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM daily.*  The “New Border” can be reached by traveling on Route 111 and ten turning left on Route 98 (east).  This will take you to the new border.  Included in your packet are maps of the Calexico/Mexicali area with more detailed instructions of getting through the towns.  See the Maps/Directions PDF.

*Border hours of operation are subject to change.
