Abstract

This atlas shows the names and locations of all legal land crossing points along the U.S. – Mexico border. Each depicted point is one at which a vehicle can travel by road (or railroad) from U.S. to Mexican soil. There are 52 in all, of which 8 are rail lines, 43 are roadways (24 bridges, 2 dams, and 17 roads), and 1 is a ferry. For record-keeping purposes, USCBP groups the 52 crossings into 26 ports-of-entry (POEs), with data from a set of neighboring crossings aggregated under the name of a “master” POE.
