In early February, the Paris municipality approved a plan to build a bullet-proof glass wall around the Eiffel Tower to help prevent any terrorist attacks, including vehicle attacks, at the world-famous monument. The nearly 30-foot-tall, clear-glass wall is expected to be completed in the fall of 2017. 

At press time, the tower was still surrounded by an approximately 8-foot-tall metal barrier that was erected prior to the Euro soccer tournament held in France in 2016.
