Fenway beefing up security for possible car-bomb attacks

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – Fenway Park is beefing up security for possible car-bomb attacks.

According to the Boston Herald, 54 security bollards will be installed in the front of gates B and C to prevent explosive-ridden cars from being driven into the park during events.
    
Officials told the paper the concrete steel barriers will protect Fenway's most vulnerable area.
    
The added security is based off of recommendations that emerged from a security assessment of Fenway conducted by the Department of Homeland Security before the Boston Marathon bombings.
    
Since the bombings, officials say the Boston Police Bomb Squad Unit also sweeps the park before every home game and patrols the park during the game with explosive-sniffing dogs.
    
It's unclear if any car-bomb threats have been made against the park.

The first phase of added security is expected to be completed by Aug. 15.
