New ramp by Mariposa Port of Entry seen way to boost trade

It's expected to shave minutes off of travel time from the port to Interstate 19 for commercial trucks

Construction of a major transportation hub in Nogales, Arizona is nearly complete. State Route 189 links the Mariposa Port of Entry to Interstate 19. It’s a $134 million project that’s projected to finish under budget and ahead of schedule. The project involves two new flyover ramps that will allow commercial traffic to access I-19 from State Route 189 with more ease. As we discussed with Jaime Chamberlain of the Greater Nogales Santa Cruz County Port Authority, the new ramps and improvements are a game changer for cross-border trade.
