The Amistad Dam Road at the United States Port of Entry near Del Rio, will be closed all day September 11-12 to prepare for the ceremony commemorating the 50th anniversary of Amistad Dam on Sept. 12, the International Boundary and Water Commission announced.

The closure does not affect access to the Air Force Marina. However, motorists traveling to or from Mexico will not be able to cross at Amistad Dam and are advised to cross at the Del Rio-Acuña International Bridge, the commission said.
