Cross-border airport under construction

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Construction is underway on the country's first cross-border airport terminal, connecting San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico.

An official said the investors building the terminal will pay the salaries of U.S. border inspectors and the cost of inspection facilities on the pedestrian bridge between Tijuana's existing airport and the U.S.

Construction already started on the Mexican side and the project is expected to begin on the U.S. side next month.
