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.

Pikes Peak Shuttle Lot Opens Indefinitely


Parking Lot Provides More than 8,000 Additional Spaces for Passengers

DENVER – Jan. 6, 2022 – Denver International Airport (DEN) is excited to announce that the Pikes Peak Shuttle lot will remain open indefinitely, providing passengers with a more cost-effective parking option. Although the lot has been open since Thanksgiving, it was closed much of 2021 due to a shortage of shuttle bus drivers and was originally scheduled to close again today.

“We have worked closely with our partners at ABM to develop solutions so that we can recruit more drivers. This has included wage and benefit adjustments and being able to provide services to make it easier for employees to obtain their commercial driver’s license,” said DEN CEO Phil Washington. “These actions have made a tremendous difference. While ABM is still hiring, we are confident that the staffing levels are such that we’ll be able to keep the Pikes Peak lot open as we move into the new year.”

To keep the Pikes Peak shuttle lot open, DEN’s East Economy Lot will continue to be closed through much of the first quarter 2022. This allows DEN to utilize the shuttles from East Economy at the Pikes Peak lot. DEN hopes to reopen the East Economy in next several months and will provide an update once it reopens.

Passengers who park in Pikes Peak should allow an extra 30 minutes to get to the terminal. Arriving passengers returning to their vehicle at the Pikes Peak lot will pick up the shuttle from Level 5 on the east side only, island 3 near door 511, the same location where passengers will be dropped off when arriving for their flight.

The Pikes Peak shuttle lot costs only $8 a day. If the more than 8,000 spots fill at Pikes Peak, the Mount Elbert shuttle lot will open as an overfill lot. Mount Elbert also has more than 8,000 parking spaces. The

Pikes Peak lot is located at 75th Ave. and North Elk St. From inbound Peña Boulevard, exit at 75th Ave. and head East to North Elk St. where you will take a right. This is currently the only entrance into the Pikes Peak. The west entrance is closed due to ongoing construction. Signs are posted to help direct motorists to the lot.

Passengers are strongly encouraged to check the status of the parking lots on the homepage of Visit DEN’s parking page to learn more.
