DENVER – Feb. 17, 2023 – Denver International Airport (DEN) is the third busiest airport in the world and continues to be the largest economic engine in Colorado, providing $33 billion to the region. With over 30,000 employees and moving toward 100 million annual passengers as part of Vision 100, the existing and future demand for transportation continues to grow.
DEN’s long-term goals are to improve airport access on Peña Boulevard including enhancing safety, shifting to more sustainable modes of transportation, improving travel times and working toward a more equitable transportation plan.
The Peña Boulevard Transportation and Mobility Master Plan will re-evaluate demand and future improvements on the Peña Boulevard corridor. The study intends to understand travel behavior, identify transportation options, economic barriers and develop a comprehensive plan on how to address these issues for the airport and the surrounding communities. Additionally, the Mobility portion of the plan will look at better utilizing public transit (RTD A-Line and buses), vanpools/carpools, and other sustainable mobility choices.
The study began last summer by surveying passengers, employers and employees. Along with comparisons to similar airports and upcoming local public meetings, DEN is taking a comprehensible look at Peña Boulevard travelers’ behaviors.
Community members are invited to attend the following in-person and virtual open houses this month to learn more and provide feedback:
