SANTA TERESA – Semi-trucks inched slowly over the U.S. border into Mexico in single file one recent weekday morning – just a hint of the traffic jam expected here in the coming months.

Union Pacific Railroad will ramp up operations at its much-touted truck-to-rail hub through April and plans a grand opening May 28, about a year ahead of schedule.

But observers in government and business on both sides of the border say neither side is ready to handle the expected increase in truck traffic at New Mexico’s fastest-growing commercial port of entry.
