Title: Infrastructure Tolls in Texas: Evidence from the Borderplex
Author: De Leon, Marcycruz; Kelley, Brian W.; Molina, Angel L., Jr.; Fullerton, Thomas M., Jr.
Abstract: Do changes in tolls rates affect pedestrian, car, and truck traffic across the bridges between El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico? As more and more attention is paid to the use of tolls as funding mechanisms for new road and infrastructure construction in Texas, the answer to this question has policy implications not only for local and state lawmakers, but also for firms importing and exporting goods between Texas and Mexico. This article uses bridge traffic data from the Borderplex to examine the relative impact of tolls and concludes that local policymakers have more leeway than they thought in raising funds to make infrastructure improvements.
