U.S.-Mexico rail bridge to be operational this year

mexico-rail bridgeThe railway bridge connecting the U.S. and and Mexico is expected to be operational by the second half of 2015. The bridge was developed under a partnership between the governments of the two states and was designed to alleviate urban congestion by re-routing rail traffic out of the most populated areas in both border cities and to expand regional transportation capacity.
The bridge is part of the Cameron County West Railroad Relocation Project, which involved the installation of approximately 11 km of relocated track and subgrade.
“With more than USD 1 billion in goods and services crossing the U.S.-Mexico border every day, rail crossings like this one are critical to economic growth and opportunity on both sides of our border,” said the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Anthony Wayne.
Construction of the project began in 2010.
