Wildfires in New Mexico have forced closure of I-25 southbound south of Trinidad, Colo., and both directions of I-25 for eight miles in New Mexico to the Colorado state line. Both departments didn’t estimate a reopening time.
Alternate routes include U.S. 160 west from Walsenburg to CO 159 at Ft. Garland or U.S. 285 at Alamosa. Also, U.S. 160 east from Trinidad to CO 389.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
