Pursuant to President Biden’s Proclamation on the Termination of Emergency with Respect to the Southern Border of the United States and Redirection of Funds Diverted to Border Wall Construction, construction activities are paused, and all border wall projects are currently undergoing review.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is proposing a project to replace existing vehicle barrier with bollard wall in Luna and Doña Ana Counties, New Mexico. CBP proposes to replace two segments of existing vehicle barrier, totaling approximately 46 miles, with new bollard wall. The proposed project also includes the installation of lighting and other detection technology.
From April to May 2019, CBP sought public input on potential impacts to the environment, culture, and commerce, including potential socioeconomic impacts, and quality of life. The comment period closed May 8, 2019. Substantive comments received will be used to inform the environmental review of the projects.
