Free Trade Bridge at Los Indios - A state of the art international bridge is located just 10 miles from Harlingen. This four-lane international crossing, is one of the largest and most modern ports of entry in South Texas. With a full U.S. Customs inspection facility that accommodates up to 75 trucks simultaneously, the Free Trade Bridge is acclaimed as the most time-efficient crossing for "Just In Time" production materials. The Free Trade Bridge accesses a four-lane highway in northern Mexico, offering a fast route to the border cities of Matamoros and Reynosa, as well as the industrial city of Monterrey. With the completion of Mexico's State of Tamaulipas new 'autopista', the Free Trade Bridge will provide a seamless highway connection for more efficient distribution of industrial products to the heart of interior Mexico. The Bridge is primed for growth and industrial property is readily available.
