U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is proposing to remove and replace approximately 15 miles of existing pedestrian fence with a 30-foot bollard wall along the international border near the communities of Tecate and Calexico, California. Approximately four miles of fence will be replaced near Tecate, California and approximately 11 miles will be replaced near Calexico, California.
From May to June 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 June 13, 2019. Substantive comments received will be used to inform the environmental review of the projects.
