Clark County has begun installing bollards along the Las Vegas Strip today.
Bollards are steel posts made specifically to stop a vehicle from accessing restricted areas like sidewalks. Over the past two years, about 1,600 bollards have been installed on the strip. Once this latest batch is installed, the bollards will line the Strip from Sahara Avenue to the infamous Welcome to Las Vegas sign.
Construction started at around 2 a.m. today, and expect installation to be going from 2 to 10 a.m. on the weekdays, until the project is complete. Drivers on Las Vegas Boulevard South should expect lane shifts and closures during those hours.
