The modern Antelope Wells port, about an hour south of Hachita, opened in 2013. That was around the time Mexican officials announced they would build a road to connect a key border highway to the port they call El Berrendo.
It still isn’t finished.
There is six miles of road between Mexico’s border highway and the port of entry. Mexico has paved five miles in four years; the last dirt mile was a muddy mess earlier this month.
