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.

March passenger count marks sixth consecutive month of record-setting traffic

DENVER – May 17, 2018 – Denver International Airport (DEN) set an all-time record for international passenger traffic in March, with a nearly 14-percent increase in international travelers over March 2017.

More than 273,000 international travelers passed through DEN in March, which is an increase of 33,373 passengers compared to March of last year.

The airport reached this milestone as United Airlines launched nonstop service to London, and WestJet Airlines began nonstop service to Calgary, Canada. Overall, more than 5.2 million travelers passed through the airport in March.

“March marked the end of the busiest first quarter ever at DEN, reflecting the work we’ve done to provide passengers with more options across the globe,” said DEN CEO Kim Day. “By adding new routes and nonstop destinations, we’re connecting the Rocky Mountain region with the world.”

DEN provided nonstop service to 23 international destinations in March, up from 20 in March of 2017.

Mail, freight and express cargo operations decreased 3 percent in March with 49,719,552 pounds, compared to 51,268,202 pounds of cargo in March 2017.
