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).

“Denver International Airport has seen strong growth through the first half of the year, marked by substantial capacity increases by all the major airlines and new service that included Southwest to Pensacola, Allegiant to Cincinnati, United to San Luis Obispo and ViaAir to Branson,” airport CEO Kim Day said. “International passenger traffic also continues to soar, with a nearly 17-percent increase in June 2017 over June 2016, which makes this June the busiest month on record for international traffic in Denver.”
