On September 3rd, 2019, I went to the Yuha Desert just west of Calexico, Ca to see the construction of a new 15 mile section of fence that had just started 1-2 weeks earlier. With only one crew working on it at this time, it most likely take more than a year to finish. The new fence will run from just east of Signal Mountain to the Jacumba Wilderness. It’s in Imperial County, California.
Video shows status of border fence in Tecate, California. On August 13th, 2019, I went to Tecate to see, if they had started building the planned new fence there. Tecate is about 20 miles east of Tijuana. They have a contract to build 4 miles of 30-foot-high bollard fence to replace the old, landing-plate fence. I found out they had already started building the fence two months earlier. About a mile and a half of the fence had already been constructed.
Report on status of the Border Fence being constructed in the Calexico area in California for December, 2019. Fifteen miles of 30-foot high, primary fence is to be constructed in Calexico. The previous fence was mainly old landing mat fence and a much smaller bollard wall, which I call mini-bollards.
