First phase of Strip bollards starts Tuesday morning with prepping of grounds

LAS VEGAS - The first phase of the bollards going up on the Las Vegas Strip this week will occur this week, according to Clark County.

The first in-the-field work related to the Strip bollards project will begin in front of the Mirage Tuesday at 1 a.m. 

The preliminary work being done is called potholing and trenching, which consists of digging under the sidewalk to verify the location of existing underground utilities.

The work is scheduled to begin at 1 a.m. and could take anywhere from 2-8 hours to complete. Pedestrian and vehicular traffic impacts will be minimal, but the work zone will consist of closing the traffic lane closest to the curb and portions of the sidewalk.

After Tuesday's work, there won't be any other construction activity related to this project that will occur until the end of the month.  Around that same time, the contractor will begin working on the project and will start near the Hawaiian Marketplace, located on the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard, between Tropicana and Harmon. 

Work will continue from 1 a.m. to 11 a.m. weekdays at various locations along Las Vegas Boulevard, with construction wrapping up before New Year's.
