LAS VEGAS (AP) — Hundreds of additional bollards may be installed along the Las Vegas Strip to improve pedestrian safety.
Crews in December finished installing nearly 800 of the steel posts along Las Vegas Boulevard and the Clark County Commission on Tuesday will consider approving the installation of an additional 500.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the additional posts would be placed between Tropicana Avenue and Spring Mountain Road at a cost of $2.5 million.
The bollards are 4 feet (1.2 meters) tall and are anchored by underground steel frames. County officials say the posts can stop a flatbed truck traveling 55 mph.
