Pharr BridgeThe Pharr International Bridge will host a free BridgeConnect Trade Session on Level I and Hazmat Inspection. This includes training on how to discover unsafe conditions before they cause accidents or crashes. Two sessions will take place, one at 8:30 a.m. at VAL Trasport, 701 Bona Terra Drive. The second is at 10:30 a.m. at the Pharr Development and Research Center, 850 West Dicker Road.

At this BridgeConnect Trade Session, attendees get an overview of inspection procedures for North American standard cargo tank and other bulk packing. They will also learn how to identify mechanical problems before they lead to costly breakdowns. The overview helps gain insight knowledge on how to avoid placement out of service during a roadside DOT inspection or being subject to infractions and fines. Attendees will also receive an update about the overweight/oversized permit system.

Presentations are made by Sgt. Orlando Barrera from the Texas Department of Public Safety Division of Commercial Motor Vehicles and Pilar Rodriguez, executive director of the Hidalgo County Regional Mobility Authority.

The Bridge will have stream the sessions live online at pharrbridge.com for those who are unable to attend.
