The proposed project would add a second adjacent “twin” structure west of the existing Pharr International Bridge from the Pharr POE to the International Boundary with Mexico (Rio Grande) in Hidalgo County, Texas. The approved final EA is on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the City of Pharr, 118 S. Cage Blvd., Pharr, Texas 78577. It is also available online at (scroll down to PUBLIC NOTICE / AVISO PÚBLICO) and at keyword “Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge.”

Pursuant to 23 CFR 771.119(h), FHWA will issue a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for this project no sooner than 30 days after the issuance of this notice of availability.

Accessibility The EA is written in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to review the EA, please contact Maria Rangel, Assistant Director of Engineering for the City of Pharr, at 956-402-4221 no later than 4 p.m. CT, at least three business days before the date on which you would like to review the EA.
