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 – Feb. 5, 2021 – We know the drill, no in-person events, but that didn’t keep Denver International Airport (DEN) and Dumb Friends League from teaming up for the sixth annual Puppy Bowl!

The mini football “stadium” filled with puppies was moved from its normal location – the center of Jeppesen Terminal at DEN – to the League’s Leslie A. Malone Center.

The six puppy siblings were streamed live on the DEN Facebook page as they played ruff, took water-bowl breaks and enjoyed their half-time naps.

“This year’s DEN Puppy Bowl may have been a little different since we weren’t able to be there in person, but the nose-to-nose action was just as cute virtually,” said DEN CEO Kim Day, “The event continues to be one of my favorites because at the end of the day, the Dumb Friends League puppies are on their way to finding their forever homes.”

Pets featured at the DEN Puppy Bowl will be available for adoption tomorrow, at the Dumb Friends League Leslie A. Malone Center in Denver on a first-come, first-serve basis. Interested adopters can visit ddfl.org or call 303-751-5772 for more information.

“We are always excited to partner with Denver International Airport for the annual DEN Puppy Bowl. Events like this are not only fun and adorable, but they help raise awareness of the programs and services offered at the Dumb Friends League,” said President and CEO of the Dumb Friends League, Dr. Apryl Steele.
