DHS awards $455,000 contract to build fence around Biden beach house

A $455,000 fence may soon surround President Joe Biden’s Delaware beach house.

The Department of Homeland Security awarded a $456,548 contract in September to Rehoboth’s Turnstone Builders, a Delaware construction company, to erect the security barrier, according to USASpending.gov.

Construction on the wall had not begun as of Oct. 20, the Cape Gazette reported, but the government spending website says the project is expected to be finished by the end of the year.

Biden bought the North Shores home in 2017, and he paid $2.7 million for the property, according to county tax records.

He has visited the property twice so far during his presidency.

During Biden’s first visit in June, the Secret Service and local police set up a security checkpoint, a nearby pond was closed, and the Federal Aviation Administration issued temporary flight restrictions, according to the local report.

For his second visit, a couple of months later, the Coast Guard created security zones in the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal and the Atlantic Ocean.
