Texas Officially Awards Contact for Border Wall

Earlier this week, we reported that Texas Governor Abbott was about to give the thumbs up for his own border wall project.

That contact has now been awarded.

The Texas Facilities Commission approved the $11 million contract to be awarded to the Michael Baker International Inc. and Huitt-Zollars.

Build that Wall

According to the proposal, the companies will jointly help find “willing private landowners to facilitate construction.”

Governor Abbott has also pledged $250 million from the state to back the project.

A recent bill came across Abbott’s desk from the state legislature to allocate a total of $1.88 billion for the project.

Of that money, $750 million is explicitly slated for barrier walls.

Abbott has not yet signed that bill.

In all, the state had identified 733 miles of border that need to be protected (of the 1,200 miles of the border with Mexico).

Michael Baker International Inc. has already worked on 500 miles of the border wall project.

Huitt-Zollars is a local company here in Dallas, and has designed BP stations in both Texas and California.

It has been reported that more than 100 homeowners in the state have already agreed to allow Texas to construct fencing on their property.
