Free Trade Bridge to close

Cameron County officials say the Free Trade Bridge at Los Indios will close at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

According to a news release, the bridge will be shut down because of the power outages, lack of water and the safety of its employees.

“Due to the current winter weather conditions and unpredictable situation, we will advise when bridge operations at the Free Trade Bridge at Los Indios will resume to normal business operations,” the release read. “The Veterans Bridge at Los Tomates and the Gateway International Bridge will continue to operate at its regularly scheduled hours.”
