In 1965 the Interstate 10 was being built in central Metairie. It would help ease traffic along the major highways and
connect to the nationwide Interstate grid. Here we view Veterans Highway (running east to west near the top) as it intersects
with the road work (above). Below is a 1966 view of the Interstate construction over the 17 Street Canal and into Metairie.
