Road construction is set to begin Dec. 10 on Vegas Drive between Michael Way and Rancho Drive.
Motorists who frequent that part of the valley are expected to face traffic delays at times, as the project will restrict two lanes down to one in each direction along Vegas Drive.
The City of Las Vegas will be constructing an underground drainage system to help with damaging flood waters that have, in the past, flowed down the street's surface.
The work will also include an upgrade to the sanitary sewer mainline from Saylor Way to Parkchester Drive and along Shadow Mountain Place on the north side of Vegas Drive.
Construction is expected to take about 18 months to complete and will cost $14-million.
Delays will also include weekend closures of the Vegas Drive and Decatur Boulevard intersection due water main relocation work.
The construction will not interfere with business access in the area.
