According to KOB 4 News, authorities also closed southbound I-25 at mile marker 299/Glorieta to make room for crews to plow and lay sand on the roadway.
Earlier in the day, I-25 was shut down near the Santo Domingo Pueblo exit due to another crash in the ice and snow.
People not required to travel are advised to stay home. All Santa Fe public schools and city offices are closed for the day.
