SANTA TERESA, N.M. (AP) - The northbound commercial traffic lanes at Santa Teresa Port of Entry could have longer hours if a new proposal is approved.

Commercial drivers headed southbound already have extended hours since an expansion that keeps those lanes open until midnight.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is working with a New Mexico agency to fund more hours heading northbound.

Officials hope the extended hours will accommodate trade and facilitate economic growth.
