Project Size:
69,000 sq ft

Brasfield & Gorrie is performing construction services for two major land ports of entry (LPOE) located in Laredo, Texas. The Laredo 1 & 2 Ports of Entry project consists of the expansion and modernization of the Juarez-Lincoln Port of Entry, which is located at the southern terminus of Interstate 35, and the historic Convent Avenue Port of Entry, which is connected to the Gateway to the Americas International Bridge. The project will expand and modernize the Juarez-Lincoln and Convent Avenue LPOEs, the second- and seventh-busiest LPOEs in the country, respectively. To maintain access for the 15 million people that pass through the ports annually, the project is employing a phased construction schedule that will allow both facilities to remain fully operational around the clock. The project is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.
