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 and United Airlines Announce Nonstop Service to its 27th International Destination and 13th Country


DENVER – Oct. 30, 2019 – Denver International Airport (DEN) is excited to announce that United Airlines will begin offering nonstop service between Denver and Nassau, Bahamas (NAS) beginning March 7, 2020.

“Denver is continuing to expand its international reach to new destinations, and we’re excited that Nassau will be added to that growing list,” Mayor Michael B. Hancock said. “Beginning next March, Denverites will have a brand-new option to access this tropical getaway nonstop.”

The new service will operate once a week year-round, on Saturdays, except for mid-August through late October. The nonstop flight is approximately five hours from DEN to NAS and will operate using a Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 166 seats.

“Nassau has never before been served nonstop from Denver,” said DEN CEO Kim Day. “Not only will this benefit Denver-originating travelers, but United’s new service will be their furthest point west served nonstop from the Caribbean, offering convenient connecting opportunities for West Coast travelers.”

Currently, Denver ranks as the third largest U.S. market without nonstop service to Nassau. About 500 people per week travel between Denver and Nassau. It is anticipated that demand for travel between Denver and Nassau will grow substantially as the result of this new nonstop connection.

The addition of Nassau is the latest in significant international growth by United Airlines in Denver. On Nov. 1, United will expand its Denver-London/Heathrow service to operate year-round. In addition, United added daily service to Frankfurt, Germany, in May 2019. With the inauguration of Nassau, United will provide nonstop flights to 14 international destinations in seven countries from DEN. This is in addition to United’s vast domestic network at Denver of more than 160 nonstop destinations in 45 U.S. states.

“United Airlines is proud to continue offering Denver-area customers the world’s best network of international and domestic routes from Denver,” said Steve Jaquith, United’s vice president of Denver. “Just in time to escape the cold for Spring Break, our new service will connect Denver residents with nonstop access to Nassau and will offer customers traveling from the western U.S. nearly 100 opportunities for easy one-stop connections to the Bahamas.”

With the addition of the flights to Nassau, DEN will be served by 23 airlines, including 11 foreign-flag carriers, that provide service to 27 international destinations in 13 countries, and more than 210 total nonstop destinations.
