Border Patrol, Army Corps of Engineers award $812M to build section of border wall | 01 Oct 2019 | U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded three contracts to build 65 miles of new border wall through Cameron, Hidalgo and Starr counties in Texas at a cost of $812 million. The border projects will include an 18- 30-foot-tall steel bollard wall, roads, lighting, cameras and other surveillance equipment. CBP says construction of the walls is expected to begin early next year and will be built on land where there are no existing structures. According to a CBP news release, the new sections will not be built at the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, La Lomita Historical Park, Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park, within or east of the Vista del Mar Ranch tract of the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge, or the National Butterfly Center.
