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 Photographs for Virtual Exhibition Highlighting Colorado’s Architecture


DENVER – Jan. 4, 2021 – Denver International Airport (DEN) is searching for resident photographers to share their vision of Colorado’s architectural beauty, whether situated in urban, rural or mountainous locations.

The MY COLORADO: Architecture exhibition will feature 35 photographs to be displayed at DEN on Concourse A, just beyond the bridge security checkpoint. The exhibit will begin in March 2021, in conjunction with the Month of Photography (MoP) Denver 2021 festival.

Colorado has an incredible history filled with interesting and inspiring architecture situated along its city streets, mountain lanes or country roads. Home to mining towns, the Eastern Plains, and the Rocky Mountains, structures within the “Centennial State” are just as diverse as the landscape itself. Our goal is for the exhibit to capture Colorado residents’ different perspectives of what visually defines Colorado architecture including buildings, residences or creative dwellings.

Colorado-based photographers who are interested in submitting their photo to the My Colorado: Architecture exhibit:

  • Photographers of all levels who are Colorado residents are invited to enter one (1) image for consideration. City & County of Denver and airport employees are welcome to apply as long as their employment is in good standing. Non-Colorado residents who apply to this call will be disqualified.
  • The exhibit is open to all forms of photographic image-making in color or black/white and in any process or technology, current or historical. Images submitted should be representational, however, image manipulation will be considered. All work must be the submitter’s original creation.
  • 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. Four Honorable Mentions will be awarded to four individual artists whose work will be featured on the exhibit poster.
  • Initial submissions of one (1) image should be no larger than 5MB in file size and emailed to [email protected] for the first rounds of jurying. (35) selected finalists will be asked to submit an official entry form, image-use agreement and a larger format photo file for subsequent printing.

Submissions are due by Monday, Feb. 1, 2021 by midnight. Any submissions after that date/time will not be considered. Finalists will be alerted via email by Friday, Feb. 19, 2021.

The exhibit will be on display starting in March 2021 for a minimum of six months but could be up to one year. The exhibit may move to other temporary locations throughout the airport thereafter. A virtual version of the exhibit will also be available on DEN’s website. The exhibit will be shared on social media and through a press release once the finalists are announced. Learn more at
