LAREDO, Texas – The Laredo North Border Patrol Checkpoint located on Interstate Highway 35, north of Laredo, Texas, has started construction to repair several traffic lanes.  The Laredo Sector Border Patrol encourages travelers to plan ahead to avoid unexpected delays.  The construction project began on November 6, 2017 and is projected to continue for the next two weeks until the Thanksgiving Holiday.  The construction repair project will impact the primary lanes and may cause temporary lane closures and diversions for those traveling north on Interstate Highway 35 from Laredo, Texas.

“We will continually monitor traffic and wait times throughout this construction period and adjust staffing accordingly to help with traffic flow while upholding our border security mission,” stated Acting Patrol Agent in Charge Enrique Martinez of the Laredo North Border Patrol Station which oversees the checkpoint on Interstate Highway 35.
