Thanks, Mark, for your response and the information on the construction in Tucson. That is the route DH was looking at so that is probably the way we'll go. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
From North Texas to Las Vegas, I'm not sure why you would go as far south as Tucson...it puts you miles and miles out of your way!
If it were me, I'd take I-40 to either US-93 at Kingman and go over Hoover Dam and on to Las Vegas, or take US-95 from Needles to Las Vegas.
If for some reason, you DO want to take the longer route through Tucson, I would NOT recommend going through Phoenix and up I-17 as, apparently, Sixpack98 is directing you.
Instead, I'd take I-8 west to SR-85 at Gila Bend, go north back to I-10 and then head west on I-10, taking either SR-95 north from Quartzsite or US-95 north from Blythe, CA. SR-95 is probably the most scenic drive, but will be slower because it means going through both Parker and Lake Havasu City. US-95 isn't as scenic but it's faster since it's a straight shot north from Blythe to Needles with nothing to slow you down (other than the wide spot in the road, Vidal Junction).
