President Joe Biden has granted the Presidential permit needed to build a new international bridge in Cameron County.

The Flor De Mayo bridge will be in Brownsville, about eight miles away from the B&M bridge.

"This will improve the international mobility between the U.S. and Mexico between Brownsville and Matamoros," CCRMA Executive Director Pete Sepulveda Jr. said. "We think it's going to be a game changer for the Brownsville, Matamoros area. So it should help retail businesses for around that area."

The new bridge will be four lanes for passenger vehicles and pedestrians only. The project is still going through an environmental assessment.

Funding for the $30 million project is still needed and the permit is good for five years.
