Document Posting Date: 
December 17, 2018

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is proposing the replacement and construction of secondary bollard wall in the United States Border Patrol (USBP) San Diego Sector. CBP proposes to: (1) remove and replace an estimated 12.4 miles of existing secondary fence within San Diego Sector along the International Border adjacent to the City of Tijuana; and (2) construct approximately 1.6 miles of new bollard wall.  The existing secondary fence is outdated.  It will be replaced with a 30-feet high bollard wall consisting of 6”x6” steel bollards.

From December 17, 2018 to January 17, 2019, CBP sought input on potential impacts to the environment, culture, and commerce, including potential socioeconomic impacts, and quality of life. A summary of the comments will be developed and shared upon a review of all of the comments received. This summary will also be posted on this website.
