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 – Jan. 9, 2017 – Denver International Airport (DEN) continues to see more passengers on a monthly basis. In November, almost 4.7 million passengers passed through DEN – marking the busiest November in Denver history, with an increase from November 2015 of 311,952 passengers.

A total of 4,695,897 passengers passed through the airport in November. Year-to-date passenger traffic at DEN totaled 53,441,291, 8.1 percent higher than during this same time in 2015.

November was the 15th consecutive record-setting month for passenger traffic at DEN, a streak that dates back to September 2015. DEN officials estimate that the airport passed the 55 million passenger mark for the first time in history on Sun., December 11.

Mail, freight and express cargo operations saw 46,928,593 pounds of cargo in November 2016, an increase of 16.9 percent compared to November 2015. This increase can be attributed to a downward spike in cargo volume in November 2015; November 2016 overall cargo volume was in-line with previous months in 2016.
