Ribbon Cutting for World Trade Bridge Fastlane Expansion

Gene Lindgren, LEDC President & CEO, was invited to participate in a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to announce the opening of the FAST Lanes Relocation Project.

This new FAST lane reduces the wait time for truck drivers and will also alleviate congestion by facilitating the passage of commercial trucks through both FAST and non-FAST traffic lanes at the port of entry.  The $10M project was the first major use of the CBP donor acceptance program and was funded by a combination of local and federal funds with the support of U.S. Congressman Henry Cuellar and the City of Laredo. Mr. Lindgren is also a member of the City of Laredo’s Port of Entry Advisory Committee and this project is just one of many initiatives in our community to remain the number-one land port in North America.
