Ehrenberg Port of Entry - Phase II Reconstruction

More than 930,000 commercial vehicles pass through ADOT’s Ehrenberg Port of Entry on Interstate 10 annually. 

The Arizona Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration are beginning phase II reconstruction of the Ehrenberg Port of Entry, located on Interstate 10, three miles east of the Arizona/California state line, in La Paz County. The $14.5 million, 19-month reconstruction project is scheduled to begin in March 2017. Work includes constructing a new operations building and credential booths and an auxiliary lane on eastbound I-10; building a canopy; constructing a box culvert; installing sewer and roadway lighting systems; building a new sidewalk; and installing signage.

Port Operations and Traffic Impacts
  • The port will remain open during construction. Eastbound Interstate 10 will be reduced to one lane with a 10-foot width restriction beginning May 30.  Loads wider than 10 feet must use an alternate route into Arizona, such as Interstate 8 (approximately 95 miles  to the south) or Interstate 40 (approximately 100 miles to the north). The restriction applies to all vehicles, including vehicles with wide-load permits. The width restriction is scheduled to be in place through the end of September.
  • Drivers should slow down and prepare to merge into the open travel lane. Drivers entering Arizona from California should expect delays and allow extra travel time.

ADOT peace officers and civilian staff at the Ehrenberg Port of Entry monitor all commercial traffic entering the state for registration, taxes, size and weight restrictions, commercial driver license requirements, insurance requirements and equipment safety requirements, and issue necessary permits.  The Ehrenberg Port of Entry is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  More than 930,000 commercial vehicles pass through it annually.
