Back To The Future -- Dickinson Firm Awarded Contract To Build 31 Miles Of The Wall -- December 2, 2019

Now this story from KXNET, dated today, December 2, 2019, 6:54 p.m. CST:
A North Dakota company has been awarded a contract to help build a border wall in Yuma, Arizona.
U.S. Sens. John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer said Monday that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded a border wall contract to Fisher Sand and Gravel of Dickinson.
Fisher will receive nearly $270 million of a $400 million contract. Cramer says the contract will go toward designing and building physical barriers along about 31 miles (49.9 kilometers) of the southern border in Yuma.
It appears after the Dickinson company built a half-mile section it impressed the USACE and awarded the contract to Fisher Sand and Gravel. Not sure how this all evolved, but there you have it.

A mile of crude oil pipeline: one million dollars.

A mile of interstate highway: one million dollars

A mile of wall: $270 million / 31 miles = $8 million dollars; or,

A mile of wall: $400 million / 31 miles = $13 million dollars.

USAF toilet seat: $640 (link here).

Keeping America great.
