GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers said a series of 2½-foot-high concrete barriers will be built to encircle Lambeau Field to improve security on game days.

Team chairman Bob Harlan said the $1 million project stems from a requirement by the NFL.

"We spend a lot of time at league meetings talking about what we can do to provide more protection for our fans to make it as safe as possible to come to the stadium on Sundays," he said.

The barrier will be a string of 33 planters, each 28 feet long and 6 feet wide. There are to be 12 monuments, each 12 feet tall, near the planters, featuring pieces of team history, with concrete benches placed nearby.

The money for the project will come from the Green Bay-Brown County Professional Football Stadium District's capital improvement fund. More than $15.5 million had been put aside for these types of improvements, said Patrick Webb, executive director of the stadium district.

The barriers will be up in time for the team's first preseason home game.
