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.

DENVER – July 20, 2021 – Shake Shack, a modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, spun-fresh frozen custard, crinkle cut fries and more, is now available to passengers traveling through Denver International Airport (DEN).

“There’s not much better than a burger and a shake,” said DEN Senior Vice President of Concessions Pam Dechant. “We know our passengers are just as excited as we are that the popular Shake Shack has opened its doors at DEN, bringing even more dining options to our airport.”

In addition to all of Shake Shack’s classics, the DEN location will also feature the first-ever Shake Shack bar with specialty cocktails such as The Exit Row Refresher (a spiked Fifty/Fifty), The Mile High Mary (Shack’s take on a Blood Mary) and On The Rockies (the first-ever Shack Margarita). Travelers can also sip on the Salted Honey Bourbon Shake: salted honey frozen custard, hand-spun with Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon Whiskey topped with smoked sea salt.

Shake Shack will bring 60 new jobs to the airport. For a list of opportunities at Shake Shack, and many others throughout the airport, visit https://jobs.flydenver.com/search/job.

Shake Shack is operated by Skyport Hospitality and Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business (ACDBE) partner JAF Concessions. The restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and is located on the Concourse B mezzanine.
