Harlingen: Easy Access with Quality Infrastructure
Harlingen is located at the crossroads of the Rio Grande Valley – allowing easy access to the local highways.
3 Main Highways
Perhaps the most well-known expressway in the Rio Grande Valley is US 83. It extends well beyond the western county of Starr County, all the way eastward to the southern tip of Brownsville, TX into Mexico.
Intersecting with US 83 in McAllen, TX is US 281, which runs throughout Hidalgo County and turns into Business 281 southward of McAllen and eastward into Cameron County.
US 77 begins in southern Cameron County and heads northbound through US 83, cutting through Harlingen and exiting the Rio Grande Valley through Raymondville, TX in Willacy County. Highway 77 is designed to become an extension of I-37 to Corpus Christi and part of the new Interstate highway, I-69.
Construction of area highways are under way as the area continues to expand – and Harlingen is in a great location to easily gain access to neighboring cities through the Rio Grande Valley’s great highways.
The Texas counties of Cameron and Hidalgo are not listed on the National Bridge Inventory identifying bridges that have been rated in serious or critical condition, or in danger of imminent collapse.
