Issuance of an Amended Presidential Permit Authorizing the Construction, Operation, and Maintenance of an International Bridge Near McAllen, TX, at the International Boundary Between the United States and Mexico
At the request of the permittee, the Department of State has amended the Presidential permit, originally issued in 1999, that authorizes the Cities of McAllen, Hidalgo, and Mission, Texas to construct, operate, and maintain an international bridge known as ``Anzalduas Bridge'' near McAllen, Texas, at the international boundary between the United States and Mexico. The amendment removes an article in the original permit that limited initial operating hours of the bridge to twelve hours per day. With this restriction removed, the Department of Homeland Security's Bureau of Customs and Border Patrol, working with local and Mexican authorities, can set the bridge's hours of operation in accordance with demand and available resources. In making its determination to amend the permit, the Department provided public notice of the proposed amendment and provided the opportunity for comment (74 FR 12173, March 23, 2009) and also consulted with other federal agencies, as required by Executive Order 11423, as amended.
