SpaceX is building walls around its Starhopper construction area.
Here are some pictures from Austin Barnard and Maria Pointer via Cowboy Dan’s twitter.
Solar power is also being added to the Boca Chica launch area.
Currently, it appears that the Starhopper and the launch site will most likely be ready in March.

Camp #StarHopper lost power same day & wind reasons Hopper’s nosecone section went down. SpX sub’s began running power lines from newish solar panel farm to Hopper’s area next day. #SpaceX ( credits: Maria Pointer & @austinbarnard45) pic.twitter.com/sTVBVduD2j

… hoping the dronesters get out today, see if SpX has done anything w/ Hopper’s test pad area, lower 40. Haven’t touched it in over a month. May have separate plans for it. #SpaceX pic.twitter.com/vCdjxW4ITD
