Construction begins early Tuesday morning on the Las Vegas Strip. 700 bollards will be put in between the street and the sidewalk to make it safer. Gina Lazara reports.
Construction crews started installing the steel posts Monday, along Las Vegas Boulevard.
According to county officials, after some test crashes, they have found the posts are strong enough to stop a flatbed truck traveling 55 mph. That's roughly the size of a tow truck.
Crews hope to be finished with this first phase of posts by New Years Eve.
