The first column appears near the Sahara Resort.
These first columns will support a pivot switch outside of the Operations and Maintenance Facility. Note that the first column is complete, the second has a form around it for the concrete pour and the third is still just rebar.
Meanwhile, at an offsite location, pouring begins on the first straight track sections.
Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you a thing of beauty...
the first beam of the Las Vegas Monorail System!
What next? Beam number two of course!
As we have said for years, monorail construction progresses quickly.
