I-Team: Structural Problems Under Investigation at the Luxor

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- New concerns of safety and building construction have come to light at a hotel on the Strip, but not CityCenter, but the Luxor.

Wednesday, MGM Resorts acknowledged there are cracks in non-visible parts of pyramid. Construction firms have been brought in to inspect and keep and eye on the growth of the cracks.

The county is focusing on the structural integrity to make sure there is no danger.

In a statement, MGM said, "Following a 2010 field review of Luxor, Clark County Building Division required an evaluation of the Luxor casino slab by a registered Nevada design professional. Engineers hired to conduct this survey concluded that cracks noticed by County inspectors occurred over a long period of time and that there is no current risk to life safety.

"Luxor management continues to follow the direction of the County Building Division and, in an abundance of caution, has agreed to implement a system of long-term monitoring to ensure the continued integrity of our iconic pyramid and the safety of our guests and employees."
