I-25 and I-40 among area roads hit with treacherous conditions

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Officials closed, then reopened, I-25 northbound at La Bajada due to treacherous conditions Friday morning.

NMDOT says crews salted and sanded the interstate while it was closed. While it’s reopened, officials encourage drivers to drive with caution and stay at least 50 feet behind snowplows.

Along I-25, between Glorieta and Serafina, NMDOT is advising severe driving conditions due to snow-packed and icy roads and poor visibility. On I-25 between Albuquerque and Glorieta, difficult conditions are likely.

Difficult conditions are likely along I-40, from just west of Albuquerque to between Moriarty and Clines Corners.
