A massive steel cap made its way through Interstate 10 in west El Paso Wednesday morning.

The construction equipment made its way to the Interstate around 10:20 a.m. for the Border Expressway construction project.

I-10 going east between Artcraft Road and Schuster Avenue will be closed from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, according to Texas Department of Transportation.

The tractor trailer is carrying the 300,000-pound cap across two lanes of traffic on I-10 east.

The cap at the job site will be lifted into place on Thursday.

Drivers should expect some delays and should seek alternate routes if possible.
