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.

New Voices Welcome Passengers on Denver International Airport Train to the Gates

Home

DENVER – Sept. 20, 2018Hold on please! Kim Christiansen, KUSA 9News anchor, and Denver sports announcer Alan Roach are the official voices of the Denver International Airport “Train Call,” with the permanent announcements now live on the train between the concourses and terminal.

Christiansen and Roach were selected to be the “Voices of DEN” after more than 75,000 people voted in an online poll earlier this year. The voices of the Train Call have become a well-known fixture of the airport. Christiansen replaces former KUSA 9News anchor Adele Arakawa who was the previous female voice since 2007. Through the contest, Roach was selected to continue as the male voice of the DEN train.

The Train Call includes operational messages such as where to board, which concourse passengers have arrived at and when to exit. As part of the new recordings, some of the messages have been refreshed, but the iconic musical jingles remain the same.

Most notable of the changes is the removal of the infamous message, “You are delaying the departure of this train,” which has now been replaced with a gentler line, “Please keep clear of the doors as this train is departing.”

The airport has memorialized the previous message and those who enjoyed it can now download it as a ringtone, along with two of the new messages from Roach and Christiansen. The ringtones can be downloaded here.

DEN’s train to the gates transports an average of 100,000 passengers daily and makes about 120 round trips per day. Each train car travels about 200 miles a day. Currently, the train has 31 total train cars. As part of the DEN Capital Improvement Plan, 26 new train cars will come on line in 2020, replacing the 16 oldest train cars and adding 10 new cars to the fleet.
