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 to Add Five Gates to Concourse C

Home

DENVER, CO — Sept. 16, 2013 — Construction has begun at Denver International Airport (DIA) to expand the existing C Concourse to the west, adding five new gates. This new 39,000 square-foot extension of the C Concourse and will be designed as an airy, light-filled, easy-to-navigate space. Southwest Airlines plans to relocate their existing gates on the A Concourse to the C Concourse where the majority of their flights are currently located. Construction of the new gate area is expected to be completed in November 2014. The five new gates will be C23 through C27.

“Denver International Airport is vibrant, strong and growing. Our gates are fully leased, and in order to accommodate Southwest Airlines’ quick and steady growth in Denver, we need to add five gates,” said Manager of Aviation Kim Day. “Denver ranks as Southwest Airline’s fastest-growing station in the carrier’s history. They have grown their business from January 2006, when they offered 13 daily flights to three destinations to a Denver network today of more than 160 daily flights to nearly 60 nonstop destinations.”

Three contractors will work on the $46 million expansion. The project will be paid for using Airport Capital Improvement Project funds, which are generated through airport revenues, not the city’s general fund or taxpayer money. Contracts include work on the building, apron paving and interior work. One contractor, Milender White, was selected among the existing on-call contractors with the lowest bid for building the foundation, walls, windows and roof work. The second contractor, IHC, was selected through a competitive bid process for apron concrete paving, where the aircraft will taxi and park. The third contract for the building interior and HVAC (heating ventilation and air conditioning) systems will be bid among existing on-call contractors this month.
