article Posted November 16, 2018 07:02:40The St. Louis suburb of St. Anthony, Missouri, is expected to be the first in the U.S. to install a $1.6 billion fence system, and that process is already well underway.
The project is being led by the city of St.-Paul, which has also pledged to pay for its own fence construction.
The city is building a fence along Interstate 70, a major highway in the city.
The city’s project includes installing two new fencing barriers at a total cost of $832 million.
Anthony is building the fences on a $200 million, 1,500-acre site that includes a golf course, community center and park.
The project is also being led jointly by the U,S.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Transportation.
The agency has already funded about $200,000 for fencing construction, and it has $400,000 in construction funding available.
In the past, St.
Paul has faced controversy from the community for the fence project.
In October, a group of residents sued the city over the fence, claiming it violates their rights under the U to be free of unreasonable search and seizure.
The suit was later dropped.
