The Details

Progreso International Bridge is located in south Texas. It’s one of the major facilities in the area. It is also called the Progreso-Nuevo Progreso International Bridge (Puente Internacional Nuevo Progreso-Progreso in Spanish). It connects the cities of Progreso, Texas and Nuevo Progreso, Rio Bravo, and Tamaulipas.

Progreso International Bridge – description

The official name of Progreso International Bridge is the Weslaco-Progreso International Bridge (also known as the B&P Bridge). It was opened in 1952 over the Rio Grande on the US-Mexico border. It is one of the busiest bridges in entire Texas and a kind of hub for commerce and culture. After many renovations, the bridge now has five lanes, with a 2-lane truck bridge for commercial crossing. The infrastructure was invested into and expanded – there is e.g., cold storage, fiber optic communication infrastructure, an interior road for dock access, as well as a pedestrian walkway.

The Weslaco-Progreso International Bridge is actually the second, newer bridge that replaces the old suspension bridge that was destroyed by a disastrous flood in 1941. The new one was completed in 1952. During the first years, the toll was southbound only. Since 2003, four new lanes for cars going either way and one truck bridge have been removing the heavy traffic and making the crossing much more convenient.

Progreso International Bridge tolls

When you want to go through the Progreso International Bridge by passenger vehicle, you have to pay a $3.00 toll. The toll is paid when traveling in either direction per vehicle. The Weslaco-Progreso International Bridge tolls are consistent. They don’t vary depending on traffic volume or the time of the day. The bridge is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Besides the vehicle toll, there is also the pedestrian toll. It is $1.00 in Mexico and 50 cents in the United States. You can also use the parking facility – it is situated on both sides of FM 1015 before the entrance to the toll gate.

Progreso International Bridge – how to pay?

The Weslaco-Progreso International Bridge is maintained and operated by B&P Company of Weslaco. The Mexican owner is the Government of Mexico. Tolls can be paid by cash or by transponder tag. Unfortunately, it is impossible to use the Uproad payment app.

Tolls increase with every extra axle. For non-commercial vehicles, there is an additional $2.00 (or 50 pesos) for each additional axle. For commercial vehicles, there is an additional $5.50 (or 127 pesos) fee for each additional axle.

Additional information

The Weslaco-Progreso International Bridge is open for both vehicles and pedestrians. For pedestrians, there is often no wait time. For vehicles, the wait time is usually shorter than 30 minutes. There are several forms of identification you can use for crossing the border. You don’t necessarily need a passport (many Americans don’t possess a passport, after all) – an Enhanced Driver’s License is one of the options, and a PASS card is another one. On top of that, you can also confirm your identity with one of the following trusted traveler cards: NEXUS, FAST, and SENTRI.

There is one duty-free shop at 0241 International Boulevard.

Love the app, use it every week
Saved our day when we were on a trip and had to take a toll road on our way home
This App allows us worry-free travel on TOLL ROADS...Automatically replenishing our account, notifying us of Automatically paying our access to the Toll Road. Great relief from expensive citations for not paying while driving. Thank you. P.S. A receipt is always sent to us.
I find this app a good way to track my tolls and manage my budget. Works great for this.
The app saves me a ton extra minutes every day. Took the worry out of paying our tolls. Thank you🌴
Better than a toll tag, I use one app on both vehicles and will link my wife's car next week. Easy to travel to other states, since you're registered with all toll authorities they cover.
Been going back to the office a little so been driving more. This is great.
