Pharr International Bridge Announces New Hours

Pharr, Texas – The Pharr International Bridge announces temporary pilot programs designed to relieve congestion, increase truck throughput, and reduce border wait times at Pharr’s international land port of entry. These pilot programs are being implemented as a result of the reduced Customs and Border Protection personnel at the port and deployed to the Southern border as mandated by the federal government.


In an effort to keep the public aware and informed, the Bridge announces the following new hours of operation, effective April 15, 2019.

The following schedule applies during the temporary pilot program period:


Hours of service remain the same

Cars & Passenger Vehicles

Monday – Sunday (6 am to 12 am)

Commercial Trucks

Monday – Friday (7 am to 11 pm)

Saturday –  Sunday (7 am – 4 pm)


Small empty trucks and short trucks (no trailers) are authorized to cross through Car/Passenger Vehicle Lane (Estimated relief: 250 – 300 trucks daily)

Monday – Friday (8 am – 4 pm)

Empty Tanker Trailer Trucks are authorized to cross through Car/Passenger Vehicle Lane (Estimated relief: 250 – 300 trucks daily)

Monday – Friday (8 am – 1 pm)

Cars and Passenger Vehicle Lane is closed for cars, giving priority to commercial trucks.

Monday – Friday (6 am – 4 pm)

All pilot programs are temporary and will be reviewed by Bridge staff, trade partners, and relevant stakeholders on a weekly basis to discuss feedback regarding the programs, make adjustments if necessary, and possibly plan for other contingencies.


Bridge officials will continue to keep the public aware and informed as the pilot programs progress.
