U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is proposing a project to replace existing vehicle barrier and pedestrian barrier in Pima and Cochise Counties, Arizona—totaling approximately 63 miles—with new bollard wall. The proposed project also includes the improvement and construction of roads and the installation of lighting and other detection technology.  

From May to July 2019, CBP sought public input regarding the proposed project’s potential impacts to the environment, culture, quality of life and commerce, including potential socioeconomic impacts. The comment period closed on July 5, 2019. Substantive comments received will be used to inform the environmental review of the project.
