The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection have released additional specifications for the proposed border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
Federal officials have supplemented the original notice posted late last month with details that prescribe 30-foot-tall sections of concrete with anti-climbing and anti-damage features. The formal request for proposals was expected to be posted as early as Mar. 8, 2017.
