PRESIDIO - Officals in Presidio say they are set to reopen the border crossing as flood waters continue to drop.

The International Bridge has been closed for more than two weeks because of severe flooding, but we now know it will be reopening on Sunday.

Federal officals announced on Saturday that Presidio's port of entry will reopen to private vehicles and pedestrians starting at 10 am Sunday.

Before the flooding forced officals to close the bridge, about 2,000 crossings between Mexico and the United States took place every day.
