CONSTRUCTION ALERT: DEN Mobilizes Crane on Level 6 as Construction Continues on the Great Hall Project

Home

DENVER – May 14, 2020 – Starting Sunday, May 17 at 11 p.m., crews will install a crane on the east side of Level 6 (passenger drop-off) as part of Denver International Airport’s (DEN) Great Hall Project. The crane will allow crews to begin construction on the new bathrooms on both Level 5 and 6 by installing steel.

During mobilization of the 42-foot long crane on May 17, three lanes of traffic will be closed near doors 607611 on the east side (Southwest Airlines check-in). As a result, there will be no access to the sidewalk or curbside drop-off between these doors.

Once the crane is installed, doors 607-611 on the east side, Level 6 will be closed for the safety of passengers while the crane is operational. During this time, the sidewalk, curbside check-in for passenger drop-off lane and first full lane of traffic in this area will also be closed. Traffic can navigate around the closure by dropping off before or after the crane closure area. Pedestrians trying to cross on Level 6 will be directed inside, down to Level 5, through baggage claim and back up to Level 6. The crane on the east side will be in place for approximately eight weeks.

A second crane will arrive on the west side in the center of the terminal in mid-June with the same impacts to the traveling public as the east side crane. More information will be released closer to the mobilization date.
