I will be traveling between Tucson and Albuquerque utilizing I-10 and I-25. Is there a lot of semi truck traffic similar to the I-40 traffic? Thanks for any replies.

Big Trucks travel via the most direct routes, usually interstate highways, that said you may find less truck traffic on 10 and 25, but I would not count on it.

If time (and pulling a trailer) is not an issue, and you want to eliminate interstate hi-way travel as much as possible, take 77N to Show Low, then 60 east to Quemado, NM, then 36 and 117 north to I-40...or stay on 60 to I-25, then north to your destination. Both offer much better scenery than either Interstate hi-way routes. I have traveled all of the routes mentioned, my preference is going north from Quemado. If you choose 10/25, then by all means stop in Hatch, NM for some of their famous Hatch chilis.
