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.

Denver International Airport Reaches Another Major Milestone on the Great Hall Project

New Central Monitoring Facility Now Complete

DENVER – December 28, 2020 – Denver International Airport (DEN) has reached another significant milestone on the Great Hall Project with the substantial completion of the Central Monitoring Facility (CMF). The CMF is the area where the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel conduct baggage surveillance and resolve screening issues in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security.

The new CMF includes over 4,100 square feet of interior space, with new offices, control and monitoring rooms, a conference room and a breakroom. This area was formerly located on Level 6 and is part of Phase 1 of the Great Hall Project. Gilmore Construction, a Minority and Small Business Enterprise constructed the CMF in collaboration with DEN and federal agencies, including the TSA and the Department of Homeland Security.

Since DEN took over the Great Hall Project in November 2019, the project has met both of its construction milestones ahead of schedule. The first was the completion of the steel erection, which finished in July of this year. The CMF is the second, and the next major milestone is the completion of the ticketing pods in Q3 2021. DEN is committed to meeting all future milestones as well as staying within the original design and construction budget of $770 million.

Denver City Council recently passed the amendment for DEN to continue to Phase 2 of the Great Hall Project in the summer of 2021. The Great Hall Project is scheduled to be complete by mid-2024.
