Project Mercy volunteers meet at the Otay Mesa Border McDonald’s at 6.45 am on the day of construction, unless otherwise stated.

  • Take the 805 or the 5 south to the 905 east, take the 905
  • Immediately after the 905 swings south there is a sign on the right for Siempre Viva Road exit
  • Exit to the right and take the left lane: the Siempre Viva Road East fork in the road
  • This will take you under the bridge and around back over it to McDonald’s

Parking: You cannot leave your car at McDonald’s: either carpool from your destination, drive your car into Mexico or arrive early to find parking elsewhere. There is parking for under $20 through the convenience store at the gas station next to McDonalds.
