New Construction Walls are Installed in the Northeast Portion of Level 6 to Accommodate Construction of Second New Security Checkpoint
Construction walls have been installed in the northeast corner of Level 6 of the Jeppesen Terminal to begin construction of the second new security checkpoint. This area of the terminal will be under construction until the completion of the new checkpoint in mid-2026.
- The interior corridor on the east side overlooking the north security checkpoint will be completely closed. A pathway to and from Bridge Security and the north end of the terminal is still available on the east side of the terminal.
- The restrooms located on the northeast side of Level 6 near will be closed permanently except the family restroom located near the stairwell on the north end. Restrooms are located directly below on Level 5 or on Level 6 between doors 608 and 610 or 609 and 611.
- On Level 6, passenger drop-off, the first two lanes of traffic, including the sidewalk from Doors 601 – 603 will be closed 24/7. Passengers can still be dropped off between Doors 603 and 617 during the day until 10 p.m.
All security checkpoints will remain operational during construction and there will always be a corridor open to access the north end of the terminal as well as the A-Bridge Security Checkpoint. Passengers are strongly encouraged to check live TSA wait times on FlyDenver.com to help them choose the most efficient checkpoint.
The construction walls in the northeast corner of the Terminal will remain in place in various configurations until the Level 6 East Checkpoint is complete in mid-2026. The Level 6 West Checkpoint, currently under construction, will be complete in Q1 2024.
Northwest Portion of Level 6 and North Bridge Closed to Make Way for Construction of New Security Checkpoint
Access to the northwest corner of Level 6 of the Jeppesen Terminal (MOD 1 West) will close as well as the north bridge to complete construction of a new security checkpoint. This area of the terminal will be closed until the completion of the new checkpoint in 2024.
To accommodate the work needed to complete construction of these new security checkpoint in the northwest area of Level 6, construction walls will be installed and the following closures will be in place:
- The entire northwest corner of Level 6 around Pod 9 between Doors 600 and 604 is closed and no longer accessible (please note that no airlines are currently operating in this area).
- The passenger elevators at the far northwest end of the Terminal will remain operational between Levels 1-5. There will be no access to Level 6 so passengers should use the elevators near Door 606.
- The North Bridge connecting the West Terminal to the East Terminal is closed including the elevator in the center of the bridge that provides access between Level 5 and 6. The escalator on the east side of the bridge will remain open. Passengers can use elevators on the east and west sides of the Terminal to access Level 5.
- Passengers needing access to the A-Bridge Security Checkpoint will be directed to use the South Bridge to walk across to the east side of the terminal from the west side and up the east side corridor, past Frontier Airlines and Southwest, where they can travel north to the A-Bridge Security Checkpoint. Signage throughout the Terminal will help direct passengers to the A-Bridge.
- The first two lanes of traffic, including the sidewalk, outside of Level 6 will be closed between Doors 600 and 604. Passengers can still be dropped off between Doors 616 and 606.
These closures will remain in place until the new checkpoint is complete in 2024. During this time, all security checkpoints will remain open. New signage will be installed to direct passengers around the construction zone as well as provide directions to the A-Bridge Security Checkpoint from Level 6. Passengers are strongly encouraged to check live TSA wait times on FlyDenver.com to help them choose the most efficient checkpoint.
This work is part of the Great Hall Project that will enhance security, increase capacity, improve operational efficiencies and elevate the passenger experience by building new security checkpoints on the northwest and northeast corners of Level 6 and creating new ticketing spaces for the remaining airlines that will be similar to what United, Southwest and Frontier area currently using.

Thank you for your patience as we build a Terminal for the future.
Please note the following tips to help keep your terminal experience as smooth as possible during construction:
- Check FlyDenver.com before you head to DEN. Delays are expected to be minimal for travelers during the construction, but we encourage you to check for information about flights before you arrive at the airport
- Follow the signs. The terminal will look different from what you may be used to. Make sure to pay attention as you travel through the terminal and use posted signage to help you navigate around construction
- When in doubt, ask for help. Find a friendly DEN Ambassador or customer service agent wearing a blue vest, or any airport employee you see wearing a badge
