Las Vegas Installs 800 Safety Posts Along Las Vegas Strip
The city of Las Vegas has installed 800 steel posts between the street and sidewalks along the Las Vegas Strip to increase pedestrian safety.
The bollards were installed at seven different locations between Tropicana Avenue and Spring Mountain Road, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. The county plans on adding 7,500 more posts by next year.
The posts can withstand a head-on collision from a 15,000-pound vehicle traveling 50 mph, the Journal said.
