San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders said Tuesday that work is scheduled to begin this summer at the city's San Ysidro border crossing, which connects California's second-largest city to Tijuana, Mexico.

Congress has appropriated $195 million for the first phase of the project, which is expected to cost about $550 million to complete. The expansion calls for adding five inbound lanes to the United States, increasing the total from 24 to 29. Mexico will build new southbound lanes.

Pedestrian crossings, administrative offices and all other buildings at the border crossing will be replaced.
