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 Hits Seven Consecutive Months of Record-Setting Passenger Traffic

Home

DENVER – May 9, 2016 – Denver International Airport (DEN) had its busiest March in the airport’s history, with about 4.7 million passengers, and has now seen seven consecutive months of record-setting passenger traffic.

A total of 4,689,761 passengers traveled though DEN in March 2016, an increase of 3.4 percent over the 4,533,547 passengers in March 2015.

“Denver International Airport continues to see steady growth in passenger traffic, led in part by continued increases in seat capacity by the airlines and a nearly 5-percent jump in international travelers in March,” airport CEO Kim Day said. “As we head into the busy summer travel season, we expect to see even larger numbers of passengers as people flock to the Mile High City or use DEN as a gateway to destinations around the world for summer vacations.”

The airport also set an all-time monthly record for non-preclearance international flights (flights that depart from Denver or clear customs upon arrival in Denver), with 160,653 passengers. Overall international flights, which includes those that preclear customs in Canada, increased 4.9 percent compared with March 2015, with a total of 222,921 passengers. Lufthansa Airlines will add to the airport’s international offerings this spring with the launch of nonstop service from Denver to Munich, Germany on May 11.

On March 15, Virgin America began daily nonstop service to San Francisco; Boutique Air began round-trip service to Moab, Utah and Vernal, Utah; and Frontier Airlines added new nonstop service to Philadelphia and Charlotte, N.C.

Mail, freight and express cargo operations saw 46,088,897 pounds of cargo in March 2016, a decrease of 1.1 percent compared to the same month in 2015.
