Construction Accident Closes Busiest U.S. Land Port of Entry for Hours

A construction accident completely shutdown California's San Ysidro port of entry for about seven hours, forcing people to wait in line or move to alternative border crossing points before entering the U.S.
By 6:30 pm 14th September, the San Ysidro pedestrian bridge had reopened, but the port remained closed to vehicle traffic. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that 13 northbound lanes have now reopened.
At least 24 people sustained injuries in a collapse of construction scaffolding.
