LOS EBANOS - With much joy and celebration on Wednesday CBP held a special ribbon cutting event for the new Los Ebanos International Ferry Crossing Facility in Los Ebanos.
The border crossing facility is the only ferry crossing port of entry in the United States and it is here in the RGV. Following Hurricane Dolly much of the facility was heavily damaged, so construction of the facility began in September of 2011.
With pride everyone there is looking forward to this new permanent structure, which is fully equipped.
The new facility comes equipped with the same technology found at the other ports of entry, including the same ferry which can hold up to three cars for crossing in either direction.
