San Ysidro Wayfinding Signs
The City of San Diego using a SANDAG grant has partnered with the Urban Corps of San Diego County to work with the San Ysidro community to design and install bicycle and pedestrian wayfinding signs adjacent to the new San Ysidro Port of Entry. The wayfinding signs will help guide visitors, residents, and commuters to public services, popular destinations, and transit options adjacent to the Port of Entry. The project will help to implement the recently adopted San Ysidro Community Plan which addresses the need for wayfinding signs to support pedestrian and bicycle mobility. The wayfinding signs will be similar to wayfinding signs that the federal government will be installing to provide a unified sign program both within and adjacent to the Port of Entry.
The City of San Diego will implement the project through a partnership with the Urban Corps of San Diego County as part of its workforce development program supporting at-risk youth. The City and Urban Corps are coordinating with the San Ysidro Community Planning Group, San Ysidro Chamber of Commerce, Metropolitan Transit System and Government Services Administration.
