TRANSPORTATION ASPECTS OF THE MAQUILADORA INDUSTRY LOCATED ON THE TEXAS/MEXICO BORDER
The report is part of a study to develop information which can be used by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to assess impacts of growth in truck traffic in the Texas-Mexico border area roadway network. Dramatic increases in the maquiladora and other international trade between Texas and Mexico have generated substantial concern over the adequacy of the infrastructure systems that serve the ports of entry. These industries rely heavily on truck traffic to carry goods within the border area and between the border area and the other regions of the U.S. and Mexico.
