Wall Construction Update, the “89 miles” Number and New Videos!

The progress on the border is unreal! So many projects are happening at once! When I first launched this site a few months back, it was still very hard to find good information. Now, it seems like we’re getting status updates every week! The wall is going up quickly at about 1 mile per day. There are at least 15 separate projects currently under construction with much more in the pre-planning phase. They have officially built 75 miles of new border wall (more on that below). Over 158 miles are under construction with a total of 450+ miles completed by end of 2020!! You can see the project details on my Google Sheets chart.

89 Miles

Now, about the “89 miles” number. As you probably know, my site has had the “89 miles” shown on it since I launched. I did that because at the time, like I mentioned above, there wasn’t much to go on for accurate information. I was relying on estimated project timelines and then diving the total number of miles in a project over the entire time between today and the competition date (sometimes not known so I would just use the end of 2020). So for example, if a project like the San Diego Wall #3 started around February 2019 and I was guessing it would be done by December 2020, that gives the entire project about 22 months. This means in October 2019 the project would be about 40% complete. Now, of course that’s not how these projects work. Sometimes it takes time to get permits, approvals, etc or they have to screen the soil first before they can begin. All that to say, my “miles built” number was inaccurate. Not long after I launched did CBP decide to start providing more updates and I believe the latest number they put out was 75 miles. At this point, I’m stuck between “updating” my number down to 75 miles which is the official confirmed number or waiting until CBP “catches up” to my number and then updating it. Obviously nobody wants to see the number go DOWN, that would be weird. So I think I will just keep it at 89 until CBP “catches up” and then begin updating it more frequently. Like I said, I did not know CBP would start providing updates like they did or else I would have just done that from the beginning. I apologize for the confusion!


Videos

I posted new videos of mostly B-roll footage from the US Army Corp of Engineers. Here are the project videos:

Yuma Wall #1 video update talking about soil conditioning they have to do before starting construction.

El Paso Wall #3 video update talking about overall status of construction:

Yuma Wall #2 video update of the USACE giving a great overview of the construction status:

And finally, I threw together all the footage I had so far from USACE and made this kick-ass video showing just how much progress has been made so far!! Share this video out to all your friends!!

65 miles NEW border wall announced in RGV Sector!!
65 miles update RGV 2019.10.05.png

CBP recently announced a new MASSIVE project to build 65 miles additional border wall in South Texas, also know as the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector. What makes this special is that this is ALL NEW border wall, not just replacement wall! Even though we all know most of the replacement wall is essentially new wall, this is exciting because now the Fake News can’t even try and spin this!

I already anticipated this announcement because CBP had put out a request for additional border wall a few months back, so this was already captured on my map! You can see this new wall as blue lines in the RGV sector, as shown in the picture above. I will wait until CBP puts out their “Requests for Input” before making my final tweaks to this line but it is essentially what they will be building. I say essentially because they will have to go through reviews with the local communities as well as other environmental and regulatory sign offs and they may need to change the design before actually breaking ground.

What do you think of this announcement? Let me know in the comments below or you can always reach me via email or Twitter.

Hey guys I know I haven't been doing many updates yet, I've been busy working on things behind the scenes that will launch soon on the site! In the meantime, follow me on Twitter @TrumpWallConstr. I will start using that more to provide updates in addition to this website.

Amazing Launch!

Wow what a week! I never imagined I would get this kind of reaction the first week I went live! My Google map has almost 100,000 views in under a week!! You guys are awesome! I appreciate all the kind words I received and continue to receive. It makes me want to work that much harder!

Special shout out to the greatest place on the internet, r/The_Donald! Also I'd like to thank Brenden Dilley and the awesome Dilley 300 for promoting the site on his show! Finally thanks for the article Gateway Pundit!

I've got lots of exciting things planned for the site. I want to make it easier to navigate on mobile so I'm changing how the information is displayed on the front page. Also I'll be adding much more content to the site including tons of pictures and videos! I will try to have frequent updates any time there's news on the wall.

I have also launched a Twitter account and will be adding an email subscription service as well. Thanks for the suggestion to everybody who requested that.

Thanks

Thanks

Welcome!

Welcome to my website! I created this to be a one stop shop to find out all about the status of Trump’s border wall. The fake news refuses to cover this in any kind of meaningful way other than shallow 30 second clips or short articles. I was frustrated that nobody was covering this in a way to really understand exactly where the new wall was being built and where the existing wall was. The US-Mexico border is 2,000 miles long and I didn’t really understand exactly where the “wall” already was and where the new wall would be built. So with my interactive map you can see exactly where the wall is being built as well as current “wall”.

I will do my best to keep my map and website updated with the latest information including pictures and videos.
