NOGALES, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Monsoon floods forced Customs and Border Protection to shut down the DeConcini port of entry Monday.

Vehicles were rerouted to the Mariposa port of entry and pedestrians were directed to the nearby Morley gate to cross the border, according to the public affairs office for CBP.

The other ports would remain accessible until CBP could reopen DeConcini to traffic, according to a spokesperson.

Monday night just before 10, dozens of cars arrived at the downtown port of entry. Drivers said they were not allowed to drive through Mariposa and were redirected here. The traffic was allowed to enter Mexico roughly 10 – 15 minutes later.

A spokesperson for CBP said Monday night that crews from Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Sonora were helping with the cleanup effort.
