Peña Boulevard Construction

Phase 1A of the Peña Boulevard Construction Project is now complete.

The Peña Boulevard Phase 1 Project was approved by City Council in June 2019. This work included the reconstruction of Peña Boulevard from Jackson Gap Street and reconstruction of the Jackson Gap Street and Interchange from 74th Ave. to 78th Ave. As a result of reduced project funding due to the COVID-19 financial impact to DEN, only a portion of the overall work was completed in July 2021.

DEN passenger traffic and vehicular traffic volumes have returned to pre-COVID/2019 volumes. DEN has determined there is a need to complete the remainder of the Phase 1 Project scope to address pavement conditions and plan for future planned DEN growth.

Phase IB Work Begins Soon

The Phase 1B work scope items include:

  • Peña Boulevard outbound reconstruction and widening
  • Reconstruction of Peña Boulevard and Jackson Gap Street to a new diverging diamond interchange (DDI) configuration
  • Widening of Peña Boulevard Bridges (inbound and outbound) over Jackson Gap
  • Construction of new Direct Connection Ramps from both East and West Terminals to New Castle Street and 78th Avenue.
