PHOENIX, Ariz.--The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers South Pacific Border District awarded a $569 million contract modification April 11 to BFBC LLC, Bozeman, Montana, for 17.17 miles of border wall design-build construction in San Diego and El Centro, California. Work is expected to be completed by June 30, 2021.
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 Section 284 of Title 10, U.S. Code. DoD and USACE are executing these projects in support of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
