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.

‘Facing the Wind’ Showcases Wild Mustangs and Burros at Denver International Airport


DENVER — Oct. 16, 2015 — Denver International Airport’s (DEN) newest temporary art exhibition, Facing the Wind, showcases a series of large-scale color images of America’s wild horses and burros from 18 different photographers. Located at the Y-Juncture Gallery past the A-security checkpoint, the exhibition is on display through March 2016.

According to Michael Golembeski, director and founder of the WindDancer Foundation, Facing the Wind will provide travelers with an opportunity to experience the wild horses that live on our public lands in 10 western states. Along with the Native Americans and the bison, the wild horse remains one of the great symbols of the American West. Always colorful characters in the wild and the object of many tales, they hold an invaluable place in the unfolding of America’s history. The WindDancer Foundation coordinated with 18 artists to create the exhibition: Kathy Simpson, Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott, John Wagner, Pat Brennan, Gail deMonet, Bristol MacDonald, Mark Terrell, Lynne Pomeranz, Tony Stromberg, Lee Mitchelson, Tamara Rymer, Barbara and Marty Wheeler, Kimerlee Curyl, Lisa Dearing, Tamara Gooch and Joe Tosh.

About the WindDancer Foundation:

The WindDancer Foundation believes that education can generate the interest and enthusiasm that inspires others to revere and preserve our wild horses and their habitat. The foundation was formed in 2009 and founder/director Michael Golembeski has been involved with the wild horses and burro living on public lands since 1990. His educational background is in EPOP biology and includes an educational profile in “Environmental & Wildlife Ecology.”
