Report: Bridge of the Americas will close Monday evening due to Trump visit


The Bridge of the Americas will close for several hours Monday evening due to President Trump’s visit to El Paso, El Diario reports.

Citing Chihuahuan officials, the report states that the bridge will be closed from 8 p.m. to midnight.

CBP previously advised drivers to avoid the bridge Monday evening in anticipation of heavy congestion, but did not confirm the closure.

Due to the potential closure, other nearby ports of entry could see heavier traffic. Travelers should expect longer than normal wait times.
