The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Task Force Barrier has begun replacement of barriers along the southwest border of the United States and Mexico September 5th near Yuma, Arizona. The barrier system project will span approximately five miles, replacing existing anti-vehicular barriers with 30-foot tall steel bollard barriers. The Yuma five mile border barrier project is one of the many DoD-funded barrier system projects that USACE is providing direction and oversight of construction along the U.S. southwest border.

We are at the YUM five mile project for the installation of the first panel. This is the first panel of the last of our Section 284 projects to begin in FY-19. Task Force Barrier is operating under Title 10 Section 284 of the U.S. code, which gives the Department of Defense the authority to construct roads and fences and install lighting to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States, in support of our counter narcotics activities of federal law enforcement agencies.
