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.

Temporary Traffic Realignment on Outbound Peña Blvd.

DENVER – Sept. 1, 2017 – Beginning Tues., Sept. 5, Denver International Airport (DEN) will temporarily realign 1 mile of outbound Peña Boulevard through Sat., Sept. 30. The three lanes on outbound Peña Boulevard from Gun Club Road to the RTD commuter rail bridge will move to the south and the speed limit will be reduced to 50 mph.

“The traffic realignment will allow us to replace deteriorating concrete on Peña Boulevard during the daytime, keeping all three lanes open for traffic,” airport Senior Director of Airport Infrastructure Management Mark Adams said. “This will allow us to work longer hours, while providing a safe perimeter for the workers and safe traffic flow for drivers.”

In addition, single and double-lane closures on both inbound and outbound Peña Boulevard will continue, Sundays through Thursdays along approximately six miles of Peña Boulevard between E-470 and the Jeppesen Terminal. The inbound Peña Boulevard work takes place from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m., while work on outbound Peña Boulevard takes place from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., each week. The speed limit is reduced to 45 mph in the overnight construction zones and vehicle passing is not allowed within the construction zone.

Passengers are encouraged to plan ahead and allow extra time to reach the airport during the work hours. The $2.6 million project is part of DEN’s annual pavement rehabilitation program. Flatiron is the contractor of the project, which is expected to be completed by the end of November.
