LAS VEGAS (AP) — Hundreds of additional steel posts will be installed along the Las Vegas Strip to improve pedestrian safety.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports crews this week will begin installing 650 bollards along the Strip between Sahara and Tropicana avenues.
Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin says the project will take approximately 60 days.
The bollards are 4 feet tall and are anchored by underground steel frames. County officials have said the posts can stop a flatbed truck traveling 55 mph.
Kulin says crews will place concrete barriers instead of bollards in some areas where planned construction would require the removal of the steel posts.
The first set of bollards was installed last year. About 840 already line sidewalks.
