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.

Airport Train Maintenance Continues Through November


DENVER – Oct. 12, 2015 – The trains that transport passengers between the terminal and concourses will be going through a series of hardware and software upgrades throughout the year. Due to this scheduled maintenance, the trains will not be transporting passengers between the hours of 1 and 4 a.m. on Oct. 15-16, Oct. 20-23, Oct. 27-30, Nov. 3-6, Nov. 10-13, and Nov. 17-20.

During the maintenance work, passengers must use the A Bridge-security checkpoint, located on Level 6, north, in Jeppesen Terminal from 9 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. during the evenings of the work because the north and south security checkpoints will be closed. The time it takes to go through the TSA security checkpoint will not be impacted because there is normally only one TSA checkpoint open between 9 p.m. and 4:30 a.m.

The majority of the flights during this timeframe depart from the A Gates so most passengers will not be impacted. However, those passengers departing on a flight from the B or C Gates between 1 and 4 a.m. will be directed through the A Bridge-security checkpoint, and will then be directed by airport personnel to bus stops for transport to the B and C Concourses. Customer service staff will be available to help guide passengers to the appropriate checkpoint and to the buses. Passengers should allow extra time to arrive at their gate.

It is possible that a few flights will arrive at the B and C Gates during this timeframe; those passengers should expect to be bused to the A Concourse for access via the pedestrian bridge to Jeppesen Terminal. Airport personnel and signage will assist with way finding. When possible, airlines may deplane passengers on the A Concourse for easier access to the pedestrian bridge leading to Jeppesen Terminal.

Airport operations will make the decision whether or not to proceed with the train shutdown each evening in case there are any significant changes in airline schedules due to weather, etc.

Throughout the year, there will be additional dates the trains will be not be operational between the hours of 1 and 4 a.m. More information will be provided prior to those dates.
