U.S., Mexico Announce Empty Commercial Vehicles to Begin Transiting Anzalduas Bridge

MEXICO CITY, August 22, 2016 – The Governments of the United States and Mexico are pleased to announce that empty commercial vehicles will begin transiting the Anzalduas International Bridge southbound into Mexico on August 22, 2016.

The Anzalduas International Bridge, located northwest of the City of Reynosa, Tamaulipas, and southwest of McAllen, Texas, is one of a number of bridges in the Rio Grande Valley border region that provide important access points that facilitate bilateral trade and commerce.

In 2015, the total two-way trade in goods between the United State and Mexico amounted to  more than $531 billion.  Our daily merchandise trade total with Mexico  is over $1.5 billion, with 80 percent of that crossing the U.S.-Mexico land border.

The Governments of Mexico and the United States are committed to improving our common border infrastructure to continue to improve the flow of commercial goods.
