Additional 650 bollards being placed on Strip between Tropicana and Sahara

As more and more new developments continue to pop up around the Las Vegas Strip, Clark County Commissioners are making it their business to keep focusing on pedestrian safety.

An additional 650 steel posts are going in the ground along the Strip between Tropicana and Sahara. The bollards are being placed to prevent cars from driving onto sidewalks.

Tourists don't even seem to notice the multi-million project.

"Honestly, I thought it was a new landscape idea," said Suzy Wilson, a tourist from Atlanta, Georgia. "I didn't realize it was mainly for safety purposes."

Which is good because there are roughly 850 steel posts known as bollards, that currently line parts of both sides of sidewalks on the Strip.

"They're attractive. They're not ugly looking at all," Wilson said.

Work crews started the installation of an additional 650 posts this week. The project picked up outside of Park MGM.

Tyrone Mossel, visting from Amsterdam: "I think it's needed."
Cristen Drummond, Reporter: "Why is that?"
Mossel: "Because of the increase of terrorism. People feel more comfortable with that kind of thing."
