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.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.
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.
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.
