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.

“Fly By Red Rocks” on Display at Denver International Airport


DENVER, CO — October 10, 2013Fly By Red Rocks, a new temporary art exhibit, is now on display in Ansbacher Hall, which is the area leading to the A-Security Checkpoint on Level 6. Travelers are invited to view the artifacts that performers gave as gifts to Red Rocks Amphitheatre after shows. Some items include a vest from the 1964 Beatles concert, a Tony Hawk autographed skateboard and a Stevie Nicks autographed guitar.

“The Fly By Red Rocks exhibit at Denver International Airport allows our passengers a peek ‘backstage’ at one of our most beloved Colorado cultural facilities,” said Manager of Aviation Kim Day. “This exhibit’s memorabilia will help tourists and locals alike learn more about the history of this breathtaking concert venue.”

About Red Rocks Amphitheatre

The iconic and historic venue was founded in 1906 by John Brisben Walker Sr., who had a vision of artists performing on a stage nestled into the perfectly acoustic surroundings of Red Rocks. The inaugural show was performed in 1910 by an opera group called Ferrulo’s Band, who played on a temporary stage and said, “This was the best opera house in the nation.” Denver architect Burnham Hoyt designed the modern amphitheatre with an emphasis on preserving the natural beauty of the area. The plans were completed in 1936 and Red Rocks Amphitheatre was dedicated on June 15, 1941. The rest is sweet-sounding history. Holding true to its original claim, Red Rocks is still the No. 1 venue in the nation with accolades in 2013 from Rolling Stone Magazine as, “The Best Amphitheatre in the Nation” and winning Pollstar’s Top Venue award so many times that the publication eventually renamed the coveted award the “Red Rocks Award.” Holding close to 10,000 fans, Red Rocks is a popular attraction for tourists and concert goers alike. More than 1 million people visit every year and the amphitheatre hosts roughly 100 shows per year. While in Colorado we invite you to stop by and enjoy the sights and sounds that Red Rocks is known for. You will not be disappointed, we promise.
