CBP: Construction of Wall along Texas-Mexico Border Begins Next Year
WESLACO – U.S. Customs and Border Protection says construction for a border wall along the Rio Grande Valley is set to begin in February.
The contractor that’s expected to work on the RGV-03 project is Slsco Ltd, according to a press release issued out Friday.
The company was awarded $145 million for construction, funding deriving from CBP’s FY 2018 appropriation.
Workers will be reinforcing an existing earthen levee by installing tactical infrastructure and 18-feet tall steel bollards, six miles long. This includes the removal of vegetation along a 150-foot enforcement zone along the levee wall system.
