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.

Home

DENVER – Aug. 29, 2016 – Passenger traffic at Denver International Airport (DEN) in July set a new record for the busiest month in the airport’s history, with more than 5.4 million passengers.

July also marked the eleventh consecutive month of record-setting passenger traffic, with a total of 5,474,503 travelers – an increase of 9.1 percent compared to July 2015. Year-to-date passenger traffic at DEN was 7.2 percent higher than during the same time in 2015, with 33,011,136 passengers through the end of July.

In July, DEN also set new records for each of the top 20 busiest days in the airport’s history, led by the new alltime record of 186,351 passengers on July 29.

“Denver International Airport continues to see record numbers of passengers as we continue the busy summer travel season, with United, Frontier, Southwest and Delta all adding seat capacity,” airport CEO Kim Day said. “We also saw a strong increase in international passenger traffic in July, which was bolstered by Lufthansa’s decision to up-gauge the aircraft used for its new nonstop flight to Munich, adding 25 percent more seats for this popular route.”

The airport’s international passenger traffic in July increased 12.5 percent compared to the same time last year, with a total of 212,229 passengers.

Mail, freight and express cargo operations saw 44,115,862 pounds of cargo in July 2016, a decrease of 5.7 percent compared to the same month in 2015.
