U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is (WAS) seeking public input concerning new border barrier projects in Cochise, Pima, and Santa Cruz Counties, Arizona, within the U.S. Border Patrol Tucson Sector.
CBP is constructing approximately 74 miles of border barrier projects, including areas where the existing barrier no longer meets the U.S. Border Patrols operational needs:
In Cochise County, CBP will replace approximately 24 miles of existing primary pedestrian barrier with new steel bollard fencing, construct approximately seven (7) miles of new steel bollard fencing, and replace approximately one (1) mile of existing secondary barrier with new steel bollard fencing. In Pima County, CBP will replace approximately seven (7) miles of existing primary pedestrian barrier with new steel bollard fencing and construct approximately eight (8) miles of new steel bollard fencing. In Santa Cruz County, CBP will construct approximately 25 miles of new steel bollard fencing and replace approximately two (2) miles of existing primary pedestrian barrier and vehicle barrier with new steel bollard fencing. The projects will also include the installation of a linear ground detection system, road construction or refurbishment, and the installation of lighting, which will be supported by grid power and include embedded cameras. The design of the new steel bollard fencing will include 30-foot steel bollards that are approximately 6 x 6 in diameter.
CBP is seeking input on potential impacts to the environment, culture, quality of life, and commerce, including potential socioeconomic impacts, for the communities located near the sites where construction is taking place.
The due date for comment responses has been extended from April 15, 2020 to Friday, May 15, 2020.

The money is on hand, and the land is all reserved. One step closer with the comment period closed.
These projects move fast out in the flat stretches between the mountains.
“These projects move fast out in the flat stretches between the mountains.”
Exactly where they’re needed most.
I’ve been along the border several times, running from Washington state, Oregon and California down to El Paso, TX. If we bottleneck the invaders into the less accessible portions most will give up and the rest will be easier to catch. Add in the Remain in Mexico policy and we might get our country back.

Glad to finally hear the Nogales AZ to NM bootheel border getting CBP border wall attention. Believe some of this is still barbed wire fence.
