Mexican officials have inaugurated a new freight crossing point on the Arizona border, one of the first new freight gates built on the border in a decade.
President Felipe Calderon says the five-lane, $70 million crossing facility on the road to Yuma, Arizona, will help cross-border commerce.
The new San Luis Rio Colorado II crossing in Sonora state will have X-ray and gamma-ray inspection facilities to inspect shipments.
Mexico and the United States hadn't built new crossing points in several years, until the Puente Anzalduas bridge was opened earlier this year linking Reynosa, Mexico, with Mission, Texas.
Calderon said Thursday he hopes to inaugurate a border bridge between Tamaulipas state and Texas later this year.
Whether this means that passenger traffic cannot cross here or not I haven't yet been able to find.
Hasta luego, jerezano
