Denver International Airport Nears Completion of Bridge Work on Peña Boulevard, Traffic Shifts Overnight

Home

DENVER — Oct. 7, 2015 — As crews at Denver International Airport (DEN) near the final phase of work to rehabilitate 10 bridge structures along Peña Boulevard, motorists should expect overnight lane reductions and new lane alignments as work shifts to the opposite side of each structure.

Over the next several weeks, crews will begin realigning traffic in each of the five bridge locations. During the nights where realignments occur, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Two lanes will be open in each direction during all other times.

The work is taking place between approximately I-70 and East 64th Avenue and involves repairing damaged and deteriorated concrete at the following locations along Peña Boulevard:

  • First Creek
  • East 56th Avenue
  • Green Valley Ranch Boulevard / East 48th Avenue
  • East 40th Avenue
  • North Airport Boulevard

Work on the bridges began in early July, with inbound Peña expected to be completed by Oct. 31 and outbound Peña completed by Nov. 20.

Concrete barriers will be in place between the construction zone and traffic lanes for safety.

The speed limit on Peña Boulevard will be reduced to 45 MPH throughout the construction zone for the duration of the $3.3 million project. Motorists are strongly encouraged to follow the posted speed limits, and allow extra time for travel through the construction zone.
