Interview with Greg Abbott Saturday — Biden won’t sell wall panels to Texas

 

 

 

 

 Texas officially started building its own border wall today. The first panels have gone up in Starr County in the Rio Grande Valley on state land, utilizing state money.  The contractor was building Trump’s wall until Biden cancelled the contract. Now they build for the state of Texas.

State commissioners unanimously approved a design-build contract that will not exceed $162 million for a total of eight miles of border wall that will fill gaps between portions of the federal border wall.

 

The contract was awarded to Posillico Civil, Inc., a 75-year-old New York-based engineering firm that has worked on other border projects. Commissioners said the first portion of the wall will be constructed on state-owned land in Starr County, with a 1.2-mile extension on private land.

 

Commissioners said the program manager, Michael Baker Huitt-Zollars Joint Venture, is pursuing agreements with private landowners to allow construction of other portions of the wall.

 

A specific groundbreaking date for the first segment of the wall has not yet been announced, but during the TFC meeting, a Posillico representative told commissioners the company understands “the importance of getting panels erected by the end of the year, and we’re certainly committed to making that happen.”
