On March 7, 2023, the Pharr International Bridge hosted in collaboration with its federal working partners in Mexico a historic Binational Forum and Groundbreaking Ceremony to kick-off the highly anticipated Bridge Expansion, or Twin Bridge. Mexico is gearing up for construction of their side of the bridge after investing $90 million to modernize the Mexican Port of Entry in 2018 to expedite commercial truck crossings and cross-border trade. Prioritizing the Pharr International Bridge Expansion project to strategically position the Texas-Mexico border region for future growth will give both countries the competitive advantage to trade on the global stage.
