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.

Ride App Services like Uber and Lyft to Move to Level 5

DENVER – June 17, 2019 – Beginning tomorrow, June 18, pickup and drop-off locations for ride app services, like Lyft and Uber, at Denver International Airport will be relocated to Level 5, Island 5 with other ground transportation services.

Ride App Drop-Off Location – Level 5, Curbside:

Passengers arriving at the airport via a ride app service will be dropped off at their specified airline location on Level 5, east and west.

Ride App Pickup Location – Level 5, Island 5:

Passengers who have requested rides through the Lyft and Uber apps will exit the terminal through doors 506-510 (west side) and 507-511 (east side) on Level 5 near baggage claim and proceed to Island 5 for pickup.

Currently, passengers using ride app services are dropped off and picked up on Level 6 of the terminal. The new pickup and drop-off locations will streamline the pickup process.

“We have worked with our ride app partners to improve the overall experience for both ride app customers and drivers,” said DEN Chief Operating Officer Chris McLaughlin. “The new pickup and drop-off locations will help connect passengers and drivers more efficiently while also reducing curbside congestion on Level 6.”

Passengers who plan to depart the airport using a ride app service should request their ride after they collect luggage from baggage claim, then follow signs for ground transportation in the terminal to the ride app pickup area. In the Lyft or Uber app, passengers will select whether they are located at Terminal East or Terminal West and then will proceed to Level 5, Island 5 to meet their driver.

As always, drivers and pedestrians are reminded to remain alert and look out for one another while in the ground transportation area.
