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.

Denver International Airport Continues Record-Setting Passenger Streak with 4.2 Million Passengers in February

Home

DENVER – April 18, 2017 – Denver International Airport (DEN) saw more than 4.2 million passengers in February, marking the 18th consecutive month of year-over-year passenger traffic increases in the Mile High City.

The February total of 4,204,744 passengers was about 3 percent higher than the 4,069,006 passengers in February of 2016, which is made even more impressive by the fact that last February included an extra day for leap year.

“Denver International Airport is off to a strong start for the early part of 2017, with impressive gains in passenger traffic that includes an almost 9-percent increase in international passenger traffic in February,” airport CEO Kim Day said. “We look forward to adding to those gains later this year with new, nonstop international service from Denver to London/Gatwick with our new partners at Norwegian.”

Lufthansa and Air Canada saw particularly strong gains in February, with year-over-year increases of 41 percent and 72 percent, respectively. Also in February, Southwest added nonstop service to Long Beach, Calif., which had been unserved from Denver since 2011.

Mail, freight and express cargo operations increased 5.5 percent in February, with 41,781,956 pounds, compared to 39,615,063 pounds of cargo in February 2016.
