The Trump administration is canceling construction of a planned border wall near Yuma, Ariz., because of high costs associated with “difficult terrain” at other sites, reports The Washington Times.

“Due to the difficult terrain at some of the approved project locations, contractor pricing for certain projects and segments approved by the secretary of Defense on February 13, 2020, was higher than expected,” Gen. Glenn A. Goddard told the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California during a hearing Wednesday.

The wall would have been built on land belonging to the Cocopah Indian Reservation along several miles of the Colorado River.

Trump has promised to build 450 miles of wall along the border with Mexico by the end of 2020. The U.S. government has so far awarded millions of dollars in contracts for construction of the barriers, including Wednesday’s $1.3 billion contract with a North Dakota construction company.

Fisher Sand and Gravel, the construction firm, is expected to construct 42 miles of black-painted fencing across the mountainous terrain of southern Arizona, according to The Washington Post.

The Trump administration says it has already built 187 miles of wall.
