In his message, the Governor asked the President to speed-up construction of the Ciudad Juárez rail bypass to prevent rail from splitting the city in two, to reactivate the monorail project at the Santa Teresa-Jerónimo international crossing so as to facilitate more agile transfer of goods and also construction of the Guadalupe-Tornillo bridge to lower congestion at the Juárez border crossings.
