DOT increases speed limit for part of I-25

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – You can soon put the pedal to the medal a little on a stretch of I-25.

The state DOT will change the speed limit on I-25 from 70 miles-per-hour to 75 from Tramway to Bernalillo.

The state did a study that showed it was safe to raise it.

The new speed limit signs won’t be installed until Monday.

Until the new signs are up, drivers have to follow the law. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
