U.S. DOT grants $46.7M to Southwest border states

Posted on September 16, 2003

The U.S. Department of Transportation bestowed $46.7 million in grants to help ensure the safe operation of Mexican commercial motor vehicles that operate in the United States and to help improve traffic flow at U.S.-Mexico border crossings. The funds will be used to build and improve safety inspection facilities and will be distributed to the border states of Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas. Of the 46.7 million, $6 million will be awarded to Arizona, $7.3 million to California, $2 million to New Mexico and $31.4 million to Texas. The objective of the requirement in the border infrastructure program for construction of state border safety inspection facilities at the United States/Mexico border is twofold: the safe operation of Mexico-domiciled commercial motor vehicles operating in the U.S. and improved traffic flow at border crossings in the four border states. Construction and improvements to these facilities in the four states will increase the number of commercial motor vehicle inspections that can be conducted at the border.
