Hidalgo County to Increase Bridge Fees
The Hidalgo County Bridge Board has decided to increase the toll fee at the Hidalgo and Anzalduas International bridges.
Of the 17 bridges between Brownsville and Del Rio, 14 of them charge $3 dollars per car to cross into Mexico with Hidalgo and Anzalduas charging only $2.50 per car. Half of the .50 cent increase will be set aside for future improvements and construction projects. The pedestrian fee will also increase form .50 cents to .75 cents per person and both increases are expected to bring in around $175,000 dollars in additional revenue.
