Construction Begins on $57 Million San Diego Border Fence Scrapers and bulldozers began filling a deep canyon Friday to make way for a border fence in the southwestern corner of the United States after 12 years of planning, environmental reviews and legal challenges. The 3.5 mile stretch extends from a state park on an oceanfront cliff through a canyon known as Smuggler's Gulch. At a cost of about $16 million a mile, the fence will be far more expensive than other fences on the 1,952-mile border with Mexico — the average cost along the entire border is $2 million to $3 million a mile.0 Comments
