Update from DEN: Monday morning passengers at DEN experienced significant lines across all security screening checkpoints resulting in lengthy wait times to get through security.

We’ve been in contact with local and national TSA leadership to understand what resources and staffing they had in place this morning, how the lanes were being operated, what advance planning took place, traffic projections, equipment issues and more. At the same time, we are reviewing our own operation regarding how we manage the lines outside the checkpoint. TSA and DEN continue to work together in partnership to address the challenges we are having so that we can best accommodate the numbers of passengers traveling through DEN, particularly at peak times. We are encouraged by the performance of the equipment in the new West Security Checkpoint and the vast majority of times, wait times are below 10 minutes. However, we know there was a problem during peak time on the morning of Feb. 26 and we are going to do everything we can possibly do, working with TSA and our airlines, to fix this situation. Our passengers deserve an amazing, efficient and positive travel experience and we are committed to providing just that.

About Colorado Clay

Colorado Clay, Denver International Airport’s newest art exhibit, is an exploration of a small part of the history and popularity of clay in Colorado. Our state has a long and rich history of clay from archaeological discoveries of clay pots found at Mesa Verde, to adobe structures dating back hundreds of years, to contemporary artists and brick makers today.
Clay deposits, ubiquitous across the Front Range, made brick manufacturing a successful enterprise. Clay mining, while not as glamorous as gold and silver found in Colorado, was still significant to nineteenth and twentieth century history of the state. Today, there are still several clay mines in operation producing the raw materials for commercial bricks.
Ceramic arts also thrive in Colorado dating back to ancient Anasazi pottery. In the early twentieth century, Van Briggle Pottery in Colorado Springs, and Coors Porcelain Company in Golden, established themselves as leading ceramics makers both nationally and abroad. Today, many artists use clay from outside of the state, yet the popularity of ceramics continues and is showcased here by highlighting a variety of functional and sculptural ceramic arts.
