It’s been the biggest remodeling job in Texas history, with thousands of workers working to complete a remodel of a Texas-Mexico border town.
The $2.2 million project, which includes the removal of fences and a new plaza, was funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and was completed in April 2017.
The town is located in San Diego County.
It was the first border town to be remodeled under the Trump administration, which said it would create a border wall to keep out criminals and illegal immigrants.
San Diego County Executive Dee Brown, a Democrat, applauded the effort and said the project will create jobs and boost local economies.
“It’s a great start for the county,” she said.
“I’m thrilled to see the jobs being created, the economic activity.”
The project was funded in part through a $1 billion federal grant to the U,S.
Bureau of Land Management, which is tasked with creating an orderly and safe border.
The county expects to get the final $1.5 million in funding this year, said Julie Stover, a spokeswoman for the B.L.M.
In addition to a new border wall, the project included the removal and refurbishing of existing border fences and new plaza areas.
The project cost $2 million.
The border was sealed during President Donald Trump’s administration, and the border is still closed to people who cross into Mexico.
The U.K. and other nations have been trying to re-open it.
