The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says a construction project on I-10 will mean nightly lane closures on both sides of the Interstate this week.

The alternating lane closures are necessary so work can be done on the cable barrier system that is to run along the interstate.

All the work is going to be done at night this week.

Lane closures will start at 9 o'clock tonight, and then wrap up each following morning at 6 o'clock. The work will be done tonight through Friday.

The cable barrier system work is being done between mile markers 135 and 142.
