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.

Overnight Roadwork on Peña Boulevard Begins This Week at Denver International Airport

Home

DENVER — Sept. 15, 2015 — Crews at Denver International Airport (DIA) will begin work this week to rehabilitate multiple sections of aging roadway on both inbound and outbound Peña Boulevard as part of the airport’s annual pavement rehabilitation plan.

The work will take place overnight, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., from Sept. 17 through Oct. 31. The work will require single-lane closures on both inbound and outbound lanes of Peña Boulevard. It includes a section of inbound Peña Boulevard from Jackson Gap Street to the East/West terminal split, and along outbound Peña Boulevard from the East Terminal exit to the Jackson Gap Street ramp, and from Gun Club Road to the 78th Avenue ramp.

Speeds will be reduced to 45 mph in construction zones and vehicle passing will not be allowed within the work areas. The project was originally scheduled to be completed during both daytime and evening hours, but it has been rescheduled to have the least amount of impact on travelers as possible. Passengers are encouraged to plan ahead and allow extra time to reach the airport during the work hours.
