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.

Minority, Women-Owned Kabod Coffee Opens in Denver International Airport Terminal


DENVER – Jan. 13, 2022 – Today, Denver International Airport (DEN) celebrated the grand opening of Kabod Coffee, the second coffee shop built as part of the Great Hall Project. Kabod Coffee is a minority, womenowned business that serves locally roasted, single-source Ethiopian coffee, Colorado baked goods, and grab-and-go food.

“We are proud to welcome Kabod Coffee to the terminal and celebrate the success of one of our minority, women-owned businesses that has been able to grow at DEN,” said DEN CEO Phil Washington. “We know our passengers and employees enjoy coffee day and night and Kabod Coffee has made a commitment to operate 24 hours a day, which is remarkable given the challenges businesses are experiencing today. We hope that next time you are at DEN, you will give this locally-owned business at DEN a try!”

Kabod Coffee owner, Muluye Hailemariam has been a member of the DEN concessions community since becoming a part of the DEN kiosk program and the Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program in 2011. She has opened a kiosk, two eateries and Kabod Coffee on Concourse B prior to the terminal location’s opening.

“Coffee is culture in Ethiopia,” said Kabod Coffee Owner Muluye Hailemariam. “I am honored to bring my heritage and the finest unblended organic coffee to the thousands of daily travelers through DEN. I am also excited to offer local milk and food options that support our greater Colorado community.”

Baked goods sold at Kabod Coffee come from Share Good, a local, women-owned company focused on giving back to the community. Kabod’s coffee is roasted locally at their roasting plant in far Northeast Denver.

Kabod Coffee is located in the terminal on Level 6 near United Airlines’ brand-new ticketing area. Kabod Coffee is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
