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.

International Passenger Traffic Increases in June at Denver International Airport

Home

Overall June passenger traffic slightly down from 2012

DENVER, CO — August 2, 2013 — Denver International Airport’s nonstop international traffic is up more than 17 percent in the month of June compared to the same time last year. A year-to-date comparison shows an 8percent increase over the same six month period in 2012. The increase is primarily due to United’s new nonstop international service between Denver and Tokyo, and Fort McMurray, Canada. In addition, Icelandair increased capacity from four to six flights a week.

Overall June passenger traffic at Denver International Airport (DIA) declined slightly by 2.1 percent in 2013 compared to June last year. A total of 4,716,309 passengers passed through DIA in June 2013, compared to 4,818,197 in June 2012. The year-to-date total decreased by 0.8 percent from 25,610,095 passengers during the same period in 2012, to 25,396,324 passengers this year.

“Denver International Airport’s strength is our domestic passenger network, and it serves us well as we work to attract additional international service,” said Manager of Aviation Kim Day. “Carriers are seeing the benefits of connecting through our airport, as well as the comparatively low cost to operate out of Denver. As a result, new flights to Tokyo, Fort McMurray and Reykjavik led to a significant increase in our nonstop international traffic over last year. We continue to increase our presence in the global market.”

Also in June, mail, freight and express cargo operations saw a 7.4 percent decrease, from 42,322,037 pounds of cargo handled in 2012 to 39,197,902 pounds of cargo handled in 2013. There was a decrease in overall airport flight operations, from 54,036 in 2012 to 50,485 in 2013.
