Construction crews will shut down part of Interstate 10 in Metairie for half an hour Thursday night to hang steel trusses over the roadway, according to the state Department of Transportation and Development.

The highway will be closed between Veterans Boulevard and Clearview Parkway while the trusses are being installed. The exact timing of the closure is uncertain, but it will occur between 9:30 p.m. Thursday and 5:30 a.m. Friday.

The work was originally scheduled for Wednesday night but was postponed due to rain.
