$10 million security upgrade at Omaha arena 'progressing quickly'
After three years of COVID delays, security barriers at Omaha’s Convention Center and Arena are finally heading for the finish line.
The 10-million-dollar project is aimed at keeping cars and trucks away from pedestrians by erecting permanent barriers, known as bollards, in front of the CHI Health Arena in downtown Omaha.
MECA, which runs the arena, doesn’t have an exact completion date, but tells us its “progressing quickly.”
According to MECA the bollards are both “safe and aesthetically appealing.”
