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.

A Favorite Holiday Tradition Returns for the Fourth Year

Skaters enjoy the free DEN ice rink.DENVER – Nov. 21, 2019 – You heard it right, passengers and community members can ice skate for free at Denver International Airport (DEN)! The ice-skating rink on the DEN outdoor plaza returns for its fourth season.

Strap on your skates and prepare for winter fun. The DEN iceskating rink will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, Nov. 22 to Jan. 20 on the DEN Plaza. Attendees can check in at the “Skate Shop” Airstream trailer located near the ice rink to pick up free skate rentals then hit the ice. If you prefer solid ground over slick ice, relax on the outdoor lounge seating and enjoy the sights and sounds of the holiday.

“At Denver International Airport, we want our passengers to enjoy the holiday travel season,” said Stacey Stegman, DEN Senior Vice President of Communications, Marketing and Customer Service. “Not only is DEN a place that will get passengers to and from their destination, it will also provide fun and enjoyment for them as well as for the community we serve.”

The ice rink will feature music daily and host special activities and performances on the ice throughout the skating season including Colorado Avalanche Ice Patrol, Denver Figure Skating Club, E-Gals Ice Crew, curling lessons, little tykes’ hockey and more. Visit our Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates on upcoming special ice rink events.

The plaza is located pre-security, is open to the public and is just steps from RTD’s A Line commuter rail station at DEN, or a short walk from the airport parking garages ($5/hour in garage parking, $6/short term parking).

This year’s ice rink is made possible in partnership with United Airlines.
