A temporary loop ramp opened Monday morning on westbound Paseo del Norte to southbound I-25.
The New Mexico Department of Transportation hopes the ramp will help with the morning traffic caused by construction on the new interchange project.
According to NMDOT, around 154,000 vehicles pass through the area every day. Thanks to the ramp, drivers going westbound on Paseo won't have to stop at the light to get on southbound I-25.
NMDOT reminds drivers to watch for signs and to get in the far right lane to use the ramp.
This ramp will be in place for a couple of months.
