The Gateway International Bridge links the downtown business districts of Brownsville and Matamoros. This bridge is primarily used for local traffic, maquiladora employees, tourists and pedestrian traffic. Eighty percent of the pedestrian traffic in Brownsville uses this bridge to go from downtown Brownsville to Matamoros and vice versa. Gateway International Bridge is the only bridge in the system that is operational twenty-four hours a day and is 100% owned and operated by Cameron County.
The West/East University Blvd. by Texas Southmost College and the newly created University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) connects the Gateway Bridge area with the Southmost area in Brownsville, which is one of the fastest growing areas in the County. This road provides a good connection between Gateway International Bridge and the Veterans International Bridge at Los Tomates.
Gateway is located in Downtown Brownsville and a block from the University of Texas at Brownsville. It is the most used international bridge in the city for pedestrian crossings. People on the US side wanting to go to Mexico can simply park their car on the US side, walk over to Mexico and have access to several tourist attractions in Matamoros. People on the Mexican side are able to walk over to the United States and have access to hundreds of retail outlets in Downtown Brownsville.
