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 Seeking Artists for Colorado-Centric Photography Exhibition


DENVER – July 1, 2019 – Denver International Airport (DEN) is searching for photographers to share their vision of Colorado’s past, a captured moment that embodies the present, or their foresight into Colorado’s future. Colorado is a vibrant state filled with interesting and inspiring landscapes, architecture, people and culture. Each resident has a unique viewpoint of what visually defines Colorado – and DEN wants to feature those perspectives.

This call for entry is free to apply, and open to all photographers across the state. The deadline to submit is July 21. The exhibition will display the juried photographs from approximately 30 different artists. The selected photographs will be announced on Aug. 23.

My Colorado will be a two-part exhibit with an overall duration of approximately two years. The first and primary location of the exhibit will be on DEN’s Concourse A, just beyond the bridge security checkpoint, from Oct. 2019 through Mar. 2020. Thereafter, the exhibit will be relocated to different locations on Concourses A and B through early 2021. My Colorado will be experienced by approximately 180,000 travelers daily. Photographs will be displayed on standard walls and hung with an Arakawa hanging system.

All selected artists whose work is included in the exhibition will be acknowledged with a 3”x5” wall placard that includes name, image title, year and web address.
