Each successful bidder will build two mini-walls on-site. Full-size prototypes will be 30 feet long and at least 30 feet tall, towering over existing border fence nearby. Officials also will batter away at a 10-by-10-foot mock-up of each wall design to rate its resistance to vandalism.
Poised to compete for contracts on 1,250-mile stretch. Reuters, citing an internal Department of Homeland Security study, reported a month ago the border wall could cost as much as $21.6 billion, and take three-plus years to build.

There is no reliable price tag on building a border wall, but Trump has estimated the cost at $8 billion. Recent congressional legislation pegged the number at $10 billion, and construction experts say it could be more than double that. The wall is one part of a massive spending strategy at the core of Trumps populist agenda.
This is the first tangible result of the action planning that has gone on. Congress has set aside $20 million in the current budget to build the prototypes but has not appropriated any other money for the wall. Each of the four contracts is worth between $400,000 and $500,000, Vitiello said.
