To protect pedestrians on the sidewalks on the Las Vegas Strip from the traffic an additional 3,000 steel bollards as you can see in the picture are being installed.
The steel posts or bollards are in additional to the approximately 1,600 which have already been installed on Las Vegas Blvd which is better known too many as the Strip. The first bollards were installed in October of 2017 and its an on going project with the work expected to be finished by July.
The bollards once installed are connected to each other underground and are designed to stop the impact of a flatbed truck traveling at 55 mph. The need for for the bollards maybe a sad reflection of the times but at least they will be there to protect tourists and locals on the Strip.
