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 is Re-‘United’ with London


Denver’s largest carrier resumes service to Heathrow Airport

DENVER – Mar. 4, 2022 – Tomorrow, Denver International Airport (DEN) welcomes back nonstop flights on United Airlines to London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR). Beginning March 5, after a nearly two-year hiatus, United will resume service four times a week between the Mile High City and Great Britain’s capital city.

“We are excited United is connecting Denver with London once again,” said DEN CEO Phil Washington. “The reestablishment of this critical route not only signals United’s commitment to its global network at DEN, but also provides a foundation for future expansion of commercial and cultural ties and between Colorado and Europe.”

In 2019 London ranked as Denver’s largest international market outside of Mexico with nearly 250,000 passengers traveling between the two cities. In addition to serving demand for travel between Denver and London, the flight supports United’s growing hub at DEN which offers unparalleled connectivity for travel between the Mile High City and the world.

“It is great to be welcoming back United’s direct service from Denver to London right in time for those making Spring Break and summer travel plans,” said Matt Miller, United’s Vice President of Airport Operations in Denver. “This service is one I know many customers will be happy to see, and we’re proud to be the airline that connects this city to the most destinations around the world, more than any other airline.”

The frequency of United’s DEN-LHR service will ramp up quickly through the spring. Flights will increase to operate daily beginning March 26, and a second daily flight will be added beginning May 7. United’s doubledaily service between Denver and London-Heathrow will be the first time a carrier at Denver has operated to one European destination twice per day on a year-round schedule.

United’s London flights join the airline’s existing European service between Denver and Frankfurt, Germany (FRA). United will further expand its transatlantic portfolio from DEN on April 23 with the inauguration of flights to Munich, Germany (MUC). All of United’s DEN-Europe flights are scheduled to operate aboard Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
