TAMAULIPAS – Through donations from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Acceptance Donation Program, the city of Pharr, Texas, invested US$ 30 million in the expansion of border crossings to expedite the transportation of oil and natural gas, said Luis Bazán, general director of the Pharr International Bridge.
“This project is of great importance for the border with Mexico, because the international bridge connects with the city of Reynosa, Tamaulipas; it is also the only full-service port for exports and imports in Hidalgo County, Texas,”said Bazan.
The monthly flow of the bridge exceeds 120,000 commercial vehicles, representing US$ 35 million annually in foreign trade.
Said investment includes five infrastructure projects that will begin next year with two commercial entrances and two exits, and an expansion of a loading platform for dry products and cold rooms will be carried out as well, said Luis Bazán.
