Bids for Trump’s Border Wall to Begin in March, Building Contracts to be Awarded by April


On Friday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed their plan to begin requesting bids for Donald Trump’s wall along the 2,000-mile border between Mexico and the United States.

According to reports, the agency plans to begin the initial process in one week, requesting bids and accepting conceptual paperwork in order to be able to come to a contractual agreement with the selected contractors by mid-April.

Despite Trump’s statement saying the construction for the wall will begin “very soon” and is “way, way, way ahead of schedule,” the details regarding the length, finalized proposed cost, as well as the amount of funding the Congress is willing to provide, has yet to be revealed.

According to reports, the wall is estimated to be about $6.5 million a mile for pedestrian blockage and about $1.8 million a mile for vehicle barriers. At this rate, the estimated cost for the wall to extend along the entire 2,000 mile border is about $21 million, a U.S. government official has revealed.

However, when the materials, height and other details are factored in, the price can change drastically.

In the meantime, a few construction agencies have already made a move to become potential bidders for the border project. Even a Mexico-based cement maker has been named as a potential beneficiary of the project.
