International Trade, Ports of Entry & Airports
The Rio Grande Valley is home to twelve bridge crossings
that allow international trade and commerce to flourish.
Below is a comprehensive list of the Valley’s ports of entry & airports.
One of the main focuses where our members affect change is in the area of International Trade & Ports of Entry. RGV Partnership advocates for investment at our ports of entry to ensure that we have the infrastructure to drive international trade. We supported the passage of USMCA, formerly the NAFTA agreement, which modernizes the rules for trade in North America with state-of-the-art provisions, which is projected to drive trade across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. The increase in trade will call for investment in technology and trained personnel at our ports of entry.
International Ports of Entry
The Roma-Ciudad Miguel Alemán International Bridge serves a port of entry between Mexico and the United States. It is open 24 hours a day, all year long.Spans the Rio Grande River (known as Rio Bravo in Mexico) between Roma, Texas and Ciudad Miguel Alemán, Tamaulipas. This suspension bridge was built in 1928 and was reopened in 2004. It is a National Historic Landmark in the United States and in Mexico. Roma was a prosperous riverport in the 19th century.
