LAREDO - Around 11,000 vehicles with import and export commercial loads use the World Trade International Bridge on a daily basis.

During 2012, there has been an increase on the regular load for the "Fast and Express" lane, according to Alfredo Espinoza Elizondo, director of the World Trade International Bridge Trust in Nuevo Laredo.

Currently, up to 6,000 exportation vehicles can travel across the bridge, but once three new lanes become active in October 2012 that number could increase to 8,000. The Mexican side of the bridge has nine entry lanes and soon will have seven exit lanes.

The new lanes will boost capacity to last at least another ten more years, according to Elizondo.
