LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) -   There will be significant overnight traffic impacts on the north end of the Strip beginning Monday as work continues on a major construction project there.

From 12:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. weekdays from Monday through Dec. 20, there will be lane closures and lane shifts along Las Vegas Boulevard between Fashion Show Drive and Spring Mountain Road to move all traffic away from the west side of the Boulevard and onto the east side. During these times, there will be at least one lane open in each direction on the east side of the road.

Outside of these working hours, this part of Las Vegas Boulevard will have one lane closed in each direction at various times. There will also be times when there are no daytime lane closures.

After the work on this segment is complete, construction and similar traffic shifts will continue on the other side of the Boulevard and to the north. 

These lane closures and shifts are part of a project that will affect Las Vegas Boulevard from Spring Mountain to Sahara through early 2021.

This project is the first of seven phases of construction that will each focus on a section of the Boulevard between Sahara and the 215 Beltway.

Each phase will include the water line replacement, new pavement, intersection modifications to improve pedestrian crossings, upgrades to traffic signal and street lighting systems with Smart poles and enhanced median landscaping with LED lighting.

Work on all of the phases is expected to take more than five years to complete.
