Después de las (cenas, platicas, ediciones…)

Excerpt from a moment of conversation…

Over a backdrop of vehicular sounds,
flowing through the nearby canyon,
we speak about projects provoked by/
developments connected to
the sonic environment:

They’re already working on the (Express lanes) North part.  The expansion has already started.

And, the expansion is adding more lanes?

Right, for trucking, mainly.  For commercial traffic moving in both directions.  
I think there will be a new border crossing, too.

Yes.  When looking at, for example, the Caltrans page, the rhetoric seems organized around commercial benefits associated with an expansion of Interstate 805.  There are references to an anticipated increase in commercial traffic; which will likely be an increase going toward and coming from the Otay Mesa Port of Entry II.

Starting around 2006, a series of meetings were held between representatives of SANDAG’s Committee on Binational Regional Opportunities, IMPLAN (municipal planning institute for Tijuana, Rosarito, Tecate), Caltrans, and SIDUE (the State Secretary of Infrastructure and Urban Development, México), which resulted in the formation of a “Binational Corridor Strategic Plan.”  

Discussion(s) were framed around speculative macro-economic growth; one idea proposed was the construction of a new port of entry, combined with a freeway expansion to increase the flow of commercial traffic.  But, what will this do apart from increase the flow of commercial traffic THROUGH locatlities?
