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, CO — May 6, 2013 — March passenger traffic at Denver International Airport (DIA) remained essentially flat in 2013 compared to March last year. A total of 4,456,431 passengers passed through DIA in March 2013, compared to 4,458,044 in March 2012. The year-to-date total increased by 0.5 percent from 12,122,201 passengers during the same period in 2012, to 12,178,311 passengers this year.

“Despite the snowy March that reduced the overall number of flights, our year-to-date numbers remain on track,” said Manager of Aviation Kim Day. “We’re looking forward to the busy summer travel season, and for the new flights that will accompany it – including the upcoming Denver to Tokyo route that is scheduled to begin service in June.”

Also in March, mail, freight and express cargo operations saw a 5.6 percent decrease, from 46,136,654 pounds of cargo handled in 2012 to 43,545,338 pounds of cargo handled in 2013. There was a decrease in overall airport flight operations, from 52,953 in 2012 to 49,956 in 2013.
