That is completely wrong; the checkpoint is very much still open. The thing is that is isn't always active; it's opened at random times. When it is closed, you just see the weight scale and a myriad of border patrol cars parked alongside the road and at the checkpoint building itself. The same is true of the I-15 checkpoint. There are checkpoints in every direction when leaving the San Diego area: I-5 and I-15 to the North and on the I-8 to the East. I live in San Diego; I should know.
