Roma Border Crossing Wait Times & FAQ’s

The original bridge at this crossing point was a suspension bridge. While the old bridge still stands, it is no longer used. The modern bridge was built in 1988. The new bridge is still a small two-lane bridge. As a result, there can often be a lot of congestion at the crossing.

The bridge is known as Roma – Cuidad Miguel Aleman International Bridge connects Roma in Texas to Ciudad Miguel Aleman in Tamaulipas.
