March 24 (UPI) — The U.S. Army has awarded $ 524 million to Southwest Valley Constructors for design and build of a section of wall along the U.S. Mexico border, the Department of Defense announced.
In February, Southwest Valley received a $ 175.4 million contract for border wall construction in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
The Arizona Daily Star has reported that the Albuquerque, N.M.-based contractor was formed in 2017 in Delaware by officers with the Omaha-based, multibillion-dollar construction firm Kiewit.
Kiewit has also received about $ 1.8 billion in border wall contracts.
The project has an estimated completion date of Sept. 7, 2021.
