Texas and Mexico share 1,254 miles of common border and are joined by 28 international bridges and border crossings. This number includes two dams, one hand-drawn ferry, and 25 other crossings that allow commercial, vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
The border crossings are vital to the economies of Texas and Mexico, and have contributed to Mexico’s status as Texas’ #1 trading partner.
TxDOT recognizes the importance of the relationship between both neighbors and, since the implementation of NAFTA in 1994, is continuously seeking ways to improve the safe crossing of people and goods.
In addition, international border crossing information compiled throughout the years, including studies, statistics and general data, is shown below.
