SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - State transportation officials say they will review a stretch of freeway as requested by Santa Fe’s mayor, who has grown concerned over a series of wrong-way crashes.

Transportation Department spokeswoman Emilee Cantrell told the Santa Fe New Mexican (https://bit.ly/2dx2KQt) that the agency will examine Interstate 25 between Santa Fe and Eldorado to look for ways to make it safer.

Gonzales wrote to Transportation Department Cabinet Secretary Tom Church, saying there is a pattern of accidents in that area.

The mayor was prompted by the Sept. 24 deaths of 44-year-old Clara Avina, who was driving the wrong way and collided with 23-year-old Anton Gress.

Both were from Santa Fe.

The department reconstructed an interchange in that area in 2007 after a wrong-way crash that killed six people.
