Commentary

With border wall funding still in question, construction finished on Calexico barrier

The estimated $18 million project replaced just over two miles of 1990s barrier made of Vietnam War landing mats with 30-foot bollards, posts placed close together to restrict entry but allow for agents to see through. The new structure goes from Calexico’s new port of entry next to the New River past the Gran Plaza outlets to an agricultural area west of Calexico’s downtown.
