The Santa Teresa, New Mexico Port of Entry was built in 1992 to relieve pressure from the busy El Paso bridge crossings a short distance to the east. General Services Administration is currently increasing the capacity of the port of entry, taking advantage of the available land. The crossing is open every day from 6:00 AM to 12:00 Midnight. The station has three maximum commercial vehicle lanes, and four maximum passenger lanes.[1] The port of entry is located forty-two miles south of Las Cruces, New Mexico, and around twenty minutes from downtown El Paso, Texas.[2]
