Provides a safe and efficient border crossing for all citizens and is a symbol of the cross-border relations that our city fosters with Ciudad Acuna, Mexico. The International Bridge is owned and operated by the City of Del Rio, accommodating vehicular, commercial and pedestrian traffic. Open for crossing between Texas and Mexico 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and continues to have one of the shortest crossing times along the Texas-Mexico border making it the first choice for many tourists and businesses looking to enter into Mexico through Texas.
It is the intent and purpose of this chapter to provide for the full and complete integration of all of the affairs of the Del Rio International Bridge into the regular framework and administration of the city, including but not limited to, the integration of the bridge's financial, purchasing, managing, fiscal, and employee policies.
