Safety work is underway at former wall construction sites along the U.S. southern border. This work will not involve expanding the border barrier, and specific activities include filling open trenches, cutting and capping conduit, making gate foundations safe, making maintenance roads safe, and grading around handholds and manholes. These limited activities are specific life and health safety measures consistent with the Administration’s plans to terminate the redirection of Defense Department funds for a border wall.
