Starting Monday, traffic lanes on Decatur Boulevard between Lake Mead Boulevard and Rancho Drive will be restricted for seven weeks while construction crews upgrade the road.
Las Vegas spokeswoman Diana Paul said a minimum of two lanes in both directions would be open during the peak traffic hours in the morning and afternoon. At night, the road will be trimmed to one lane in each direction.
Paul suggests motorists use Jones Boulevard or Rancho Drive as alternate routes.
Most construction will take place from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. to accommodate traffic demands, but some construction will take place during the day, Paul said.
Paul said crews will be resurfacing the road, fixing deteriorated areas of pavement and modifying the median to improve traffic flow among other improvements on the one-mile stretch of road.
