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 Transit Partners Construction To Reduce Lanes on West Terminal Approach

Home

DENVER – May 6, 2016 – Beginning Sunday, May 8, a section of inbound Peña Boulevard that splits toward the west terminal entrance will be reduced from four lanes to three lanes and realigned temporarily while crews replace waterproofing that is part of the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) University of Colorado A Line overpass. Denver Transit Partners (DTP), RTD’s contractor, is performing the work.

The project will use a phased approach that will require realignments on parts of inbound Peña Boulevard as well as lane reductions for approximately six months.

Crews will begin lane closures at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, so that crews can prepare for the traffic shift. The lane closures will continue overnight until the morning of Sunday, May 8, when the inbound section of Pena Boulevard that leads to the west terminal will be reduced to three lanes and shifted to one side of the road just after the east/west terminal split. Traffic headed toward the east terminal will be required to slow down at the terminal split. Temporary pavement markings and overhead signs will be installed to direct drivers to parking, the Westin Denver International Airport and passenger departures and arrivals.

In early August, crews will shift the traffic to the other side of the terminal west road so that crews can access the remaining part of the overpass.

Motorists should expect reduced speed limits of 35 mph and 25 mph in the area of the construction for the duration of the project, which is expected to last through late November. Drivers are asked to reduce speeds and use caution in the construction areas.
