Driving LA to Las Vegas

How long does it take to drive from LA to Las Vegas. We are looking at leaving LA on a Sunday morning and returning to LAX on a Friday to meeting our 8pm flight back to Australia.

I also just read in a topic that there is significant roadworks on Route 15. Is this the main route between LA and Vegas? We won't be travelling until March next year. Does anyone know if roadworks will be completed by then? Are there any websites to give roadworks updates?

It's 5 hours +, each way.

It's about a 4-5 hour drive if everything goes well as far as traffic and construction. Sunday morning from L.A. to Vegas is a good time as far as traffic.
