Hensel Phelps Books $228M GSA Construction Contract

Hensel Phelps Construction has received a $228.1 million contract from the General Services Administration to handle the modernization and expansion of a U.S. port of entry in San Luis, Arizona.

GSA said Tuesday the contractor will perform design-build services for the San Luis I Land Port of Entry project under the initial contract that the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law partially funded to allow for a single construction phase.

The project includes increasing the number of processing lanes for pedestrian and northbound vehicles to cut screening times and adding fixed inspection infrastructure to southbound facilities. It is aimed at further supporting the Customs and Border Protection’s San Luis I LPOE operations.

Hensel Phelps is anticipated to start construction by May 2024 as the team works to finalize the design following the completion of the National Environmental Process Act processes.

GSA uses BIL to make upgrades for LPOEs along the Canadian and Mexican borders. The modernization is meant to boost safety and security, generate jobs, strengthen supply chains and ensure resiliency and sustainability of ports.
