U.S./Mexico international border in San Diego County,California.
The Project includes the construction, operation, andmaintenance of tactical infrastructure, to include a primary pedestrian fence,supporting patrol roads, and other infrastructure in two distinct sections along theU.S./Mexico international border within USBP’s San Diego Sector. The fencesections will be approximately 0.8 miles and 3.6 miles in length. Constructedaccess and patrol roads to support each fence section will be 0.8 miles and 5.8miles, respectively.
Environmental Stewardship Plan (ESP).
CBP plans to construct, operate, and maintain approximately 4.4miles of tactical infrastructure. Tactical infrastructure consists of primarypedestrian fence, patrol and access roads in two sections along the U.S./Mexicointernational border in San Diego County, California. The first section designatedas A-1 consists of 3.6 miles of primary pedestrian fence, supported by an accessand patrol road that will be approximately 5.8 miles in length and will start at thePuebla Tree and end at Boundary Monument 250. Although most of Section A-1is within the Otay Mountain Wilderness (OMW), portions of Section A-1 will besouth of the OMW. In areas where the construction access road is not adjacentto the fence, trails suitable for light-tracked vehicles will be constructed for thepurposes of fence installation and maintenance Section A-1 will not connect toany existing fence. Approximately 65 percent of the 5.8 miles of access andpatrol road and 17 percent (2,300 feet) of fence will be on the OMW. The OMWis on public lands administered by the BLM. The second section designated asA-2A, approximately 0.8 miles in length, will connect with an existing border fence west of Tecate, California. This fence section is an extension of existingfence near Tecate Peak and will pass through a riparian area. Some portions of the fence sections will be on privately owned land parcels. Lights will not beconstructed as part of the Project.
