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.

Airline Check-In Counter Relocation Underway at DEN

Home

DENVER – Aug. 16, 2022 –Starting Aug. 17 and continuing through October 2022, Denver International Airport (DEN) will be relocating the airline check-in counters that are currently located at the far northwest and northeast ends of the Jeppesen Terminal. This is necessary to accommodate construction of the new security checkpoints.

The airlines will be moving to the south end of Level 6 on either the east or west sides. Passengers will need to pay close attention to the location of their airline check-in counter as it may move from the East Terminal to the West Terminal or vice versa. The first two airlines to relocate will be Delta and Spirit Airlines both of which will be moving from the East Terminal to the West Terminal this week.

Delta Airlines Move

Starting at 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 17, Delta Airlines will move its check-in operations from pod 0 on the east side of Level 6 in the Jeppesen Terminal to pod 6 located on the west side of Level 6. Delta will begin serving passengers in its new location, inside Door 612, starting at 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 17. Pod numbers are noted on the overhead yellow signs hanging from the ceiling in the ticket counter areas.

Spirit Airlines Move

Starting at 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 18, Spirit Airlines will be moving its check-in location from pod 0 on the east side of Level 6 in the Jeppesen Terminal to pod 5 located on the west side of Level 6. Spirit will begin serving passengers in its new location, inside Door 616, starting at 2 a.m. on Aug. 19.

Additional airline relocations including Allegiant, American Airlines, Boutique Air, Denver Air Connection, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Sun Country Airlines, Southern Airways Express and all international carriers will take place through October. Passengers are encouraged to visit www.flydenver.com the day prior to their flight to confirm the location of their airline within the Terminal. Signage on Peña Boulevard and curbside signage will also be updated to direct passengers to the correct set of doors on all levels.

If you need assistance finding the location of your airline, please look for a DEN Ambassador in a purple vest, employees with badges, or construction personnel that can help you. You can also utilize the DEN interactive map that offers step-by-step directions to airlines and amenities within DEN. Check-in directories are also available to help identify your airline’s pod number. DEN will have temporary signage installed at the old Delta and Spirit ticketing counters to assist passengers who may be unaware that the airlines have moved.

The airline relocations are temporary and will allow work to progress on Phase 2 and the Completion Phase of the Great Hall Project. These phases will build new security checkpoints on the northwest and northeast corners of Level 6 and eventually these airlines will be relocated into permanent spaces similar to those of United and Southwest. To learn more about the Great Hall Project and future plans DEN has to continue to renovate the terminal to accommodate 100 million annual passengers, visit the project page.
