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. Speeds will be significantly reduced during this time.

Denver International Airport Opens 10 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Home

DENVER, CO — Nov. 4, 2013 — Customers who park their plug-in electric vehicles in the east and west parking garages at Denver International Airport (DIA) can now charge up at one of 10 new electric vehicle charging stations.

The charging stations, which were officially opened to the public today, are free to customers who pay to park in the garages. The chargers are compatible with most electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, including popular models such as the Chevy Volt, the Nissan Leaf and the plug-in version of the Toyota Prius.

The project is one of the first major public installations of commercial Level 1 electric vehicle charging systems in the country. Most commercial charging stations are designated as Level 2, which requires 240-volt infrastructure and are far more costly to install. DIA selected Level 1 stations because they are efficient, inexpensive, cost far less to install and will meet the needs of airport customers. The stations will provide a full charge to most plug-in vehicles in about eight hours, while the average DIA customer parks for 1.4 days.

“Denver International Airport is already one of the most environmentally friendly airports in the world,” said Kim Day, Denver’s Manager of Aviation. “These new charging stations are a continuation of our commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship. At the same time, we’re addressing the evolving needs of our customers by adding a safe, convenient way for them to charge their electric vehicles at the airport.”

Five charging stations are located in both the east and west parking garages on level 1 between rows E and F. Signs designate the spaces for use by electric and plug-in vehicles only. Illinois-based Telefonix, Inc. was selected as the winner of the competitive bidding process to provide the charging stations.

“Colorado is at the forefront of developing infrastructure for electric vehicles and DIA clearly understands this market as well as the value of Level 1 charging,” said Allen Will, director of business development at Telefonix, Inc. “Everyone at Telefonix is excited to see these units get installed here and we appreciate the confidence that DIA has placed in our technology. We truly believe that these Level 1 charging stations are the perfect solution for longer duration parking – which fulfills the needs of the typical DIA customer.”
