BROWNSVILLE AND MATAMOROS BRIDGE COMPANY. The Brownsville and Matamoros Bridge Company, incorporated in Arizona Territory on August 25, 1909, is owned equally by the Missouri Pacific (as successor to the St. Louis, Brownsville and Mexico) and the National Railways of Mexico. The company owns and operates a bridge across the Rio Grande between Brownsville and Matamoros that was constructed between April 1909 and January 1, 1911, under a franchise originally granted to the Brownsville and Gulf Railway Company. The company also has 1.24 miles of track connecting the two cities.
