April 3 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army awarded SLSCO Ltd. with a $61.4 million contract modification Friday for wall construction along the southern U.S. border.
Earlier this week the Galveston, Texas-based company was awarded a $250 million contract to build emergency hospitals in the National Tennis Center in Queens and at a cruise ship terminal in Brooklyn.
The original contract had an estimated completion date of Oct. 1, 2020, but work covered under the modification is expected to wrap by Dec. 31, 2020.
In December 2018 SLSCO received $166.8 million to construct six miles of a border wall near McAllen, Texas.
This week a federal judge allowed two environmental suits challenging President Donald Trump's border wall strategy to proceed, though the judge also ruled that Trump did not overstep his authority when he declared a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border.
