BFBC has been awarded a $569M contract modification to design and build a 17.17-mile security wall along the Customs and Border Protection’s San Diego and El Centro sectors in California.

The Department of Defense said Monday it estimates that the company will finish the project in June 30, 2021.

USACE initially awarded BFBC a potential $141.7M contract in May 2019 to replace the El Centro and Yuma  vehicle and pedestrian barrier systems.

The agency obligated the full amount of the modification at the time of award from its fiscal 2020 operations and maintenance funds.
