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.

Denver International Airport Makes Final Contract Termination Payment for Great Hall Project

Home

DENVER – March 20, 2020 – As part of the termination of its contract for the renovation of the Great Hall, DEN has finalized all remaining payments to its former developer, Great Hall Partners, in the total amount of $55.5 million.

Following termination, DEN was obligated to reimburse Great Hall Partners for its equity investment, work done to date and work performed during the transition of the project to DEN. Paying these types of transition and contract breakage costs are typical when a construction contract is terminated for convenience and the Development Agreement between DEN and Great Hall Partners required these payments. DEN did not pay any termination penalties.

This $55.5 million also settles the $290 million in claims filed by Great Hall Partners. This amount is in addition to the $128.1 million previously paid by DEN to Great Hall Partners announced in December 2019.

DEN has reimbursed Great Hall Partners a total of $183.6 million, which is within the range of $170 million to $210 million DEN announced following termination. All obligations and disputes (financial and otherwise) with the former developer are now resolved.
