Paso Del Norte

The Paso Del Norte bridge is located in El Paso, Texas, at 1000 S. El Paso Street on the U.S. side and on Juárez Avenue on the Mexican side. The bridge is 982 feet in length. The Paso del Norte Bridge is owned by the City of El Paso in the U.S. side and Government of México in the Mexican side. This port of entry is dedicated to pedestrians (northbound and southbound) and passenger vehicles (northbound) and includes Ready Lanes for travelers with identification documents that include RFID chips. It is a four-lane facility, dedicated to northbound privately owned vehicles (POVs) and other non-commercial traffic, as well as bi-directional pedestrian traffic. Effective December 1, 2023, the first lane, from east to west, has been separated from regular traffic. The Paso del Norte Port of Entry (POE) will allocate between one and four inspection booths in the eastern section for SENTRI use, depending on users demand.

The facility was completed in 1967, following the ratification of the Chamizal Treaty when the channel of the Rio Grande River was moved. The facility was renovated in 1991 and expanded in 2009.

The Paso del Norte POE has a maximum of 12 lanes to process POVs and a maximum of 14 lanes to process northbound pedestrians. The City has 2 pedestrian toll booths for pedestrians going southbound into Mexico.
