  • Abstract:
    This research is to establish a baseline and on-going measurement of border crossing times and

    delay by measuring travel times for commercial trucks crossing the port of entry (POE) from

    Mexico into Texas at the Laredo World Trade Bridge and the Colombia-Solidarity Bridge.

    Delay time for commercial motor vehicles is a key indicator of transportation and international

    supply-chain performance, and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is working

    with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and other members of the U.S./Mexico Joint

    Working Committee (JWC) to implement automated border crossing and delay time measuring

    systems.

    In 2006, the Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) analyzed various technologies that can be used

    to support automated measurement of border delay and crossing time at U.S./Mexico land ports

    of entry. This project was sponsored by the FHWA and radio frequency identification (RFID)

    was the selected technology for most of the U.S./Mexico land ports of entry.

    FHWA, TxDOT, and other members of the JWC began working closely with U.S. Customs and

    Border Protection (CBP) to determine whether projects could be enhanced to measure border

    wait time in addition to total crossing time.
