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 Passenger Traffic Declines Slightly In April

Home

DENVER, CO — June 6, 2013 — April passenger traffic at Denver International Airport (DIA) declined slightly in 2013 compared to April 2012. A total of 4,031,540 passengers passed through DIA in April 2013, compared to 4,137,759 in April of last year. The year-to-date total remained essentially flat, decreasing by 0.3 percent from 16,259,960 passengers during the same period in 2012, to 16,209,851 passengers to date in 2013.

“The spring snows in April contributed to slightly lower passenger traffic at DIA, but overall year-to-date numbers remained steady,” said Manager of Aviation Kim Day. “As summer travel season gets underway, we are looking forward to the launch of new non-stop service to two new international destinations, Tokyo, Japan on June 10 and Fort McMurray, Canada on June 7. The new flights will add to the more than 180 non-stop destinations around the world served by DIA.”

Also in April, mail, freight and express cargo operations saw a 6.3 percent decrease, from 42,261,873 pounds of cargo handled in April 2012 to 39,589,722 pounds of cargo handled in April 2013. There was a decrease in overall airport flight operations, from 49,208 in 2012 to 47,145 in 2013.
