Red, White, Blue, and Green: Nogales, Arizona

The current port in Nogales is struggling to process its high amount of traffic in an efficient manner.

When approaching the Land Port of Entry in Nogales, Ariz., visitors are greeted with a red, white, and blue abstraction of the American flag. Red indicates non-commercial traffic, while blue indicates commercial traffic.

Color-coded wayfinding directs cars and trucks to the appropriate lanes, with blue representing commercial areas and red representing passenger areas. In between the two is a lush garden area meant to reference an oasis in the desert.

The Mariposa Land Port of Entry won specific recognition from the GSA for its communications and wayfinding program. The red, white, and blue color scheme of the 15-foot-tall south-facing steel panels on the exterior is an abstraction of the American flag.

The red canopies at the Mariposa LPOE signify the POV, or noncommercial, lanes.

The color coding of the steel panels on the exterior of the Mariposa LPOE continues into interior processing spaces.

In total, two installations of photovoltaic panels will produce 1 MW of power that will be fed back into the grid.
