Should Tijuana be a Control City on I-5 signs in San Diego?

Many years ago at the northern 5/805 split, the 805 south split was labeled "Mexico" for a control city.

I would love to see a photo of this!

IIRC, there is a distance sign for Ensenada on I-805 somewhere just south of 15.  there are several for Int'l Border.

For what it's worth, my opinion is that the control city for I-805 south in its entirety should include Chula Vista and Tijuana. 805 is the shorter route to the international border (shorter than I-5 between the two endpoints). Note that doesn't necessarily mean faster. I'd prefer the control city for I-5 south of downtown San Diego to be Tijuana. But I'd hate to see some of those nice old I-5/US 101 overhead signs from the mid-1960s removed and replaced to include control cities! :-)

Well, where to start...

They won't replace entire signage just to put a control city. All they have to do is to make Tijuana MX in one of their sign shops, probably depending on which district we are in. I think it would be the San Diego Sign Shop, and then they can put that green strip of words onto the mid-60s sign. See? They didn't need to replace the entire sign. They could just put Tijuana MX under San Diego on the original signs, and not even replace it. I don't even know if California wants to replace signage right now since they're going almost bankrupt. Damn spending on illegal aliens.
