April 19, 2016

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announces that a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) and Draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) are now available for public review and comment.  The Draft EA analyzes the potential environmental effects associated with the proposed renovation and expansion of the Eagle Pass South Checkpoint located in the U.S. Border Patrol’s Del Rio Sector (i.e., the Proposed Action).  The purpose of the Proposed Action is to renovate the Eagle Pass South Checkpoint to ensure that it is able to safety accommodate CBP agents, the public, and the increasing traffic so that the checkpoint can continue to function as intended.

CBP invites comments on the Draft EA during the 30-day comment period beginning on April 25, 2016.  You may submit comments to Mr. Joseph Zidron using only one of the following methods:

By U.S. mail:  Joseph Zidron, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 24000 Avila Road, Suite 5020, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677; or

When submitting comments, please include your name and address, and identify your comments as for the Eagle Pass South EA.  To ensure consideration, comments must be received by May 25, 2016.  Once the final environmental and decision documents are complete they will also be posted on this site.
