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.

Passenger Traffic Records Shattered at Denver International Airport During July

Home

DENVER – Sept. 11, 2019 – The recently set record for Denver International Airport’s busiest month in history was short lived as over 346,000 more people passed through the airport in July 2019 than in June 2019. DEN served more than 6.7 million people in July, up 10 percent from July 2018, in what is now the busiest month ever at DEN.

Records were broken nearly daily at DEN during July; it’s estimated that 29 days during the month exceeded the previous busiest day ever record set in July 2018 at just over 207,000 passengers. The new busiest day record was set on Friday, July 19, with over 227,000 passengers passing through the airport. July is historically DEN’s busiest month, so it is anticipated this record will not be broken again this year.

July 2019 was also the busiest month ever in Denver for international passenger traffic. DEN served nearly 316,000 international passengers during the month, an increase of 11 percent over July 2018. July also broke the record for origin-destination traffic in a single month, with over 4.4 million people beginning or ending their travels in Denver.

In July, 55,741,344 pounds of cargo passed through DEN, up nearly 13 percent over July 2018.
