Two construction projects will impact traffic to and from Denver International Airport (DEN) this week.

Inbound Peña Blvd. lanes (heading to DEN) between Tower Rd. & the RTD bridge will be restored to their pre-existing, permanent alignment. A right inbound lane closure will be in effect from approximately 8 p.m. on May 28 to 4 a.m. on May 29. Additionally, crews will replace a damaged overhead electronic message board sign on May 28 and 29 on outbound Peña Blvd. (leaving DEN). Work is expected to start around 10 p.m. on May 28 and finish around 4 a.m. on May 29, and again around 10 p.m. on May 29 to 4 a.m. on May 30. At approximately 1 a.m., between Tower Road and E 56th Avenue, a slow rolling closure of Peña Boulevard traffic will be implemented for less than 10 minutes. Speeds will be significantly reduced. Crews will be transporting and setting bridge girders on E-470 over outbound Peña Blvd. (leaving DEN) between 11 p.m. on May 30 until 6 a.m. on May 31. Between Jackson Gap Street and E-470, approximately once every hour, slow, rolling closures of Peña will be implemented for approximately seven minutes. Speeds will be significantly reduced during this time.

Community invited to participate in survey
to identify travel trends

DENVER – June 28, 2022 – Earlier this year, Denver International Airport (DEN), under the leadership of Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, formed the Africa Air Service Committee (AASC) to support efforts to establish flights between Denver and Africa. The AASC, which includes 18 business and community leaders with unique knowledge and expertise in the region, held its second meeting on June 15.

During this second meeting, the AASC discussed a target market assessment and analysis of the potential for service between Denver and 15 cities across the continent of Africa. As the AASC works to finalize the top opportunities for service, travelers across Colorado are invited to participate in a survey to gain additional data about Africa travel demand and preferences.

“Members of the AASC are working hard to finalize strategic recommendations that we believe will lead to eventual air service between Denver and Africa in the next five years or so,” said DEN CEO Phil Washington. “As part of our Vision 100 plan to expand our global connections, we invite Colorado residents to take part in a survey that will provide us additional insight in current and future travel between Colorado and Africa.”

A link to the survey is available at https://www.flydenver.com/vision100. The survey will remain open through the end of July. Results of the survey will be reviewed by the AASC during their September meeting.
