A drainage tunnel under the Nogales Port of Entry will be investigated by the Federal Government. 

Senator John McCain and Senator John Flake warned that the tunnel could collapse which would put thousands of drivers at risk. 

Flooding shut down the port in 2014 and also damaged a drainage pipe in 2008. 

The General Services Administration said it will launch the study next month and it will take about a month to complete.
