Some officials say Laredo's "Largest Inland Port" status threatened
Laredo has held the title as the country’s largest inland port for years, but some Laredoans feel perhaps the city isn't doing enough to keep its title
Recently other border towns have been expanding to rival the commercial and industrial status of the Gateway City. About 10 years ago, the city of Laredo began talks about the construction of a 5th bridge to Mexico.
During that same time the city of McAllen did some planning of their own and this week their 3.2-mile long bridge became a reality, leaving some wondering how this new port of entry would affect Laredo.
