Rail Crossing for Punta Colonet-into-U.S. Discussed by U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood

At a meeting yesterday between U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood and his Mexican counterpart, Secretary of Communications and Transport Juan Molinar Horcasitas, the topic was truck and railroad crossings to move goods more efficiently from Mexico to U.S. markets. A good part of the discussion focused on transport issues surrounding the planned mega-port at Punta Colonet, Mexico . It was the first bilateral working meeting, and it happened in San Pedro Garza Garcia.

The officials agreed to assign working groups to address truck, rail and aviation issues relating to Mexico's infrastructure plans and the need for coordination with the U.S. A new crossing near Mexicali will be the focus of consideration for Punta Colonet-U.S. rail traffic.
