Commercial Border Crossing and Wait Time Measurement at Laredo World Trade Bridge and the Colombia-Solidarity Bridge

This research is to establish a baseline and on-going measurement of border crossing times and delay by measuring travel times for commercial trucks crossing the port of entry (POE) from Mexico into Texas at the Laredo World Trade Bridge and the Colombia-Solidarity Bridge. In 2006, the Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) analyzed various technologies that can be used to support automated measurement of border delay and crossing time at U.S./Mexico land ports of entry. This project was sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and radio frequency identification (RFID) was the selected technology for most of the U.S./Mexico land ports of entry. This report covers the work that TTI developed under an interagency cooperation contract with Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), which includes the technology implementation, equipment procurement and installation and the data collection and analysis of information collected at the World Trade Bridge and the Colombia Solidarity Bridge.
