The Starr-Camargo Bridge

serves as the most direct and efficient route between the Rio Grande Valley and Mexican cities such as Monterrey and Mexico City.

The two-lane bridge, opened in 1966, is 591 feet long.

The crossing is also known locally as Puente Camargo. The bridge is privately owned by the Starr Camargo Bridge Company.

After a $25 million dollar investment, Starr-Camargo Bridge has a large parking import lot for commercial trucks,  hi-tech equipment, wider roads and a number of diverse improvements that have made it the crossing with the fastest processing time in all of South Texas.

"The Shortcut"

Located just a 120 miles from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico on the safest, shortest least-congested, free highway to the border.

For those companies whose goods are "just passing through" using just in time inventories. 

The Starr-Camargo Bridge offers quick crossing times for commercial vehicles at an average of 90 minutes for both north and southbound loads. 

Compared to our neighbors, Laredo to the north (8 hours crossing time) and McAllen/Pharr to the south (6 hours crossing time), using the Starr-Camargo Bridge makes sense for those companies whose goods are just "passing through" using just-in-time inventories. Most agree that a truck and driver are certainly more cost-effective in motion than just sitting in line.
