TONIGHT: DEN Trains to the Concourses to Undergo Scheduled Overnight Shutdown. Bridge Security will be the 24-hour Checkpoint starting at 8 p.m.
DEN trains to the concourses will be shut down overnight for six hours for scheduled testing of the train’s electrical power system. Employees and passengers will need use Bridge Security, which will be the 24-hour checkpoint starting at 8 p.m. Starting at 9:15 p.m., those who need to reach the B and C concourses will be guided via signage and/or airport personnel to a bus that will take them to the concourses. These changes will be in effect from 9:15 p.m. Feb. 20, to 3 a.m., Feb. 21. It is recommended that passengers who need to get to the B and C Concourses during these hours should arrive to security at least 30 minutes earlier than they would have otherwise to ensure they have enough time to move through the airport.Follow DEN on Twitter Follow DEN on Instagram

As we know, Denver International Airport (DEN) is the economic engine for the region, generating $33 billion a year for the region and creating thousands of jobs. But the benefits of the airport extend well beyond these two economic benefits. In fact, DEN’s competitive advantages such as our ability to grow incrementally while keeping costs low for airlines has resulted in more flights, more passengers and more connectivity, all which lead to more business, educational and cultural opportunities for our community.
Although DEN experienced a slight set back as a result of the pandemic, passenger traffic is expected to fully recover in 2022 putting the airport on pace to reach 100 million annual passengers between 2030 and 2035. As a result of this inevitable growth, I have developed Vision 100, a comprehensive and thoughtful plan to ensure the airport is ready and able to effectively serve 100 million annual passengers when that time comes. Vision 100 consists of four pillars and four guiding principles that will direct the work we do at DEN to ensure we are preparing for the future.
Each pillar and principle are just as important as another and all are necessary for DEN to successfully reach 100 million annual passengers. Here is an overview of the pillars and the guiding principles:
Along with these four pillars, are four guiding principles, which will be incorporated into the execution of each pillar and are just as critical to our success.
As we embark on Vision 100, we want you to be part of it by working at DEN, participating in our student education opportunities and internships, becoming a part of the concessions team, learning how to become a business partner, working on our construction projects and, of course, traveling through DEN.
No matter how you choose to be part of Vision 100, we look forward to the journey as we create a diverse airport of the future that serves our passengers, provides a thriving environment for our airlines and business partners and creates educational, culture and career opportunities for our community.
The opportunities are endless and together we can create a stronger more diverse community where everyone can thrive!
We look forward to embarking on this journey with you!
