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.

Alaska Airlines Adds Nonstop Options from Denver

Home

New daily flights to Portland, Ore., begin today

DENVER – September 1, 2020 – Alaska Airlines launched new nonstop flights between Denver and Portland, Ore. (PDX) today. Service will operate once daily onboard a Boeing 737-900 aircraft with 178 seats.

“We are pleased to have Alaska Airlines expand in Denver,” said DEN CEO Kim Day. “As the domestic travel market continues to exhibit strength, these new flights will provide additional opportunities for Portlanders to explore the Mile High City and all the wonderful recreational amenities Colorful Colorado has to offer.”

Since 2002, Alaska has operated flights from Denver to the carrier’s primary hub in Seattle (SEA). Alaska’s new nonstop flights between Denver and Portland will further strengthen the airline’s network, connecting two of the most dynamic economies in the country.

“Both Portland and Denver boast some of the country’s best breweries, recreation and music scenes in the U.S.,” said Brett Caitlan, Alaska’s Managing Director of Capacity Planning and Alliances. “We are happy to connect the millions of like-minded travelers who will visit these great cities.”

Demand for travel between Denver and Portland peaked in 2019, totaling more than 1,500 people per day. Prior to the launch of this service, Denver was the largest domestic market without Alaska Airlines service from Portland.

“Alaska is a great airline partner and it’s exciting to see them add Denver to the cities they serve nonstop from PDX,” said Portland International Airport’s Air Service Development Director David Zielke. “Travel between these two cities has always been plentiful – and we hope to see it return even stronger – as people enjoy the natural beauty and similarities between the two destinations.”
