The Border Fence project DV-3 is located within the Area of Operation of the Office of Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector, Ajo and Casa Grande Stations and traverses approximately 10.83 miles along the International Boundary between the United States and Mexico, in Pima County, Arizona.

The project consists of installing 10.40 miles of VF-1 fence (post-onrail) and approximately 0.43 miles of VF-2 fence (normandy) and all components necessary to complete the construction, including clearing and grubbing, labor and equipment. Because the project was on the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation (TON), tribal monitors were required for all earth moving operations along with coordination and collaboration with landowners.
