Cameron county could have it's second international bridge project begin soon, as officials get the go ahead for the Veteran's bridge expansion, Julio Olivo explains.
Cameron county has gotten clearance from the Federal Highway Administration for the expansion project of the Veteran's International bridge at Los Tomates, determining that there was no human or environmental impact. The expansion entails adding two more lanes to the crossing section to improve the flow of traffic. It would also accommodate the SENTRI lane for vehicles as well as the fast lane for commercial trucks.
Judge Cascos anticipates construction to begin as soon as March or April of this year and should be completed in March or April of 2011.
