Due to the heavy rains from Hurricane Alex, water is being released from the Amistad Dam into the Rio Grande River to help prevent further flooding in the neighboring cities. Some bridges are being closed temporarily due to the significant increase in water in the Rio Grande River.
In Laredo, Bridge One, the older bridge downtown, will be closed today. The other bridges in Laredo, Bridge Two, also in the downtown area, the World Trade and Colombia bridges will all remain open because they are taller and will not be affected by the extra water.
Across the border from Del Rio in Ciudad Acuna, authorities in Mexico have decided to temporarily closed the border bridge as a precautionary measure from the flooding as well.
In Reynosa, the Anzalduas bridge which crosses into Mission, TX is also temporarily closed. You can contact the bridge to confirm when it will be open at (956) 843-2471.
