Border crossing closed for repairs

Border crossing closed for repairs

EL PASO, TX – The Zaragoza International Bridge will be closed to northbound truck traffic for two weeks to allow for upgrades on the Mexican side.

“The closure will take place Dec. 24 through Jan. 3 and trucks headed for the United States will be rerouted to either the Bridge of the Americas or the Santa Teresa, New Mexico border crossing,” said Sergio Madero, head of the International Bridge Trust in Juarez.

“We’re in the process of upgrading our border crossings and we need to tear out the concrete, install new equipment and repave,” Madero said.

The closure only affects northbound commercial truck traffic, which averages around 1,600 trucks a day. Trucks coming from the United States can still use the bridge southbound and passenger and pedestrian traffic won’t be affected at all.
