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 International Airport Adds Nearly 10,000 Places for Passengers to Charge Up on the Go

Home

DENVER – July 27, 2016 – Denver International Airport (DEN) has completed the installation of nearly 10,000 new electrical plug-in points for passengers to charge up personal devices throughout the airport.

The nearly $4.7 million capital improvement project, which began last November, includes the installation of 2,424 “power hubs,” which each include two standard 120-volt electrical plugs and two USB receptacles for a total of 9,696 individual charging points. With the existing wall outlets throughout the airport, there are now more than 10,000 available plug-in points at DEN. The new hubs provide nearby power options in virtually every public seating area on the concourses.

“When Denver International Airport opened 21 years ago, few people could have imagined today’s mobile technology and the demand for places to charge those devices,” airport CEO Kim Day said. “We made this important investment for our passengers, who desire this kind of amenity. At the same time, we have also invested nearly $2.5 million to improve our free public Wi-Fi service – which has been independently verified as being the fastest among any large U.S. airport. Taken together, these new and improved services are keeping DEN’s passengers connected to family, friends and the world while they travel.”

The following shows the allocation for the new power stations:

Concourse A: 822 hubs installed (1,644 electrical receptacles & 1,644 USB receptacles)

Concourse B: 1,265 hubs installed (2,530 electrical receptacles & 2,530 USB receptacles)

Concourse C: 337 hubs installed (674 electrical receptacles & 674 USB receptacles)
