LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A new pavement project on Las Vegas Boulevard will alter traffic in the coming days.

Clark County says traffic on the Las Vegas Strip will be reduced to one lane in both directions between Spring Mountain Road and Sahara Avenue from the evening of Aug. 22 to Aug. 25.

The closures come as crews will be replacing pavement and striping in that area. It's all part of a multi-year project that will replace water lines and make intersection improvements.

Motorists can expect 24-hour lane closures. A detour will be set up to enter Sahara Casino from Paradise Road on Aug. 22.
