U.S. Army Corps of Engineers South Pacific Border District contractors install 30-foot steel bollard barrier panels at the Tucson 3 project site near Douglas, Arizona, Dec. 12, 2019. The barrier system project spans approximately 20 miles, replacing dilapidated and outdated designs with steel bollard barriers. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers South Pacific Border District is providing contracting services, including design and construction oversight, of Department of Defense-funded Southwest border barrier projects in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas at the direction of the Administration and at the request of Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection agency.
A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Task Force Barrier contractor lifts and sets a steel bollard barrier panel for concrete placement as the next panel awaits its turn near Columbus, N.M., Oct. 23, 2019. USACE is providing direction and oversight of Department of Defense (DoD)-funded construction of barrier system projects along the southwest border. These projects are being executed by USACE, as directed through the U.S. Army by the Secretary of Defense, in response to Department of Homeland Security’s request for assistance to help secure the United States southern border by blocking drug-smuggling corridors through the construction of roads and fences, and the installation of lighting under the Title 10, section 284 of the U.S. Code. DoD and USACE are executing these projects in support of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (no one in this image crossed the international border).
