This crossing includes two bridges. The old, four-lane bridge serves only southbound traffic and is 524 feet long. The new, four-lane bridge serves only northbound traffic and is 852 feet long.
The crossing is also known locally as Hidalgo Bridge, Puente Reynosa and Puente Reynosa-McAllen I.
Beginning September 1, 1996, all northbound commercial vehicles were directed from this crossing to the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge on the Rise. Southbound commercial vehicles are permitted to use either the McAllen-Hidalgo-Reynosa Bridge or the Pharr-Reynosa Bridge to enter Mexico.
More information is available from the City of McAllen.
This bridge is located in a highly developed, commercial area. Identified needs include the separation of vehicles using the nearby commercial retail, parking lots and duty-free stores from vehicles traveling south to the port of entry.
At the end of the study, improvements will be recommended based upon identified needs of the border crossings. If you would like to comment on the study, please email us.
