The Briefing Document on Texas Model Border Crossing Project (PDF Format) describes the results of phase one of the project. The project team has determined that the automation of the crossing process is feasible and will not add substantial additional costs (less than five percent, based on current estimates) above the existing infrastructure cost of border facilities. The opportunity to process conventional traffic more efficiently and to offer expedited processing to those companies able to use the ITDS system is promising.
