The City of Mission, Texas,
is lobbying the U.S State Department to retain a permit to build another
international bridge, mere weeks after the completion of the Rio Grande
Valley’s newest crossing, according to The
Monitor. There is no plan or funding to build another crossing, but Mission
city officials said they want to retain the 30-year-old permit because it
allows them to connect railroads on both sides of the border, something the
newly unveiled Anzalduas International Bridge does not.
