Border Crossing Initiatives

The City of Douglas, along with its stakeholder partners that include the Douglas Regional Economic Development Corporation, Douglas International Port Authority, Douglas Industrial Development Authority and Cochise County are working to improve the border crossing experience at Douglas for both goods and people. Over the past 18 months, efforts have been focused on a Two Port Solution that relocates commercial traffic to a new state of the art facility and dedicates the existing port to non commercial operations and dedicating it to pedestrian, car and bus traffic.
