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.

DENVER – Aug. 1, 2016 – Visitors using Denver International Airport’s (DEN) cell phone waiting lot, Final Approach, now have a new dining option with today’s opening of Tia’s Authentic New Mexican Eats.

Tia’s offers authentic New Mexico-style fare that includes both breakfast and lunch/dinner menus. Breakfast is available from 6-10 a.m. daily, and the restaurant is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Tia’s will be operated by New Mexico-based Fresquez Companies. In 2013, Tia’s Albuquerque airport location was named one of “10 airport restaurants that taste like home” by CNN. For the freshly rebranded Denver location, Tia’s has brought its food preparation to the front of the house so that customers can watch their food being made fresh before their eyes.

“We are excited to welcome the addition of Tia’s to the Final Approach waiting lot facility,” said Mookie Patel, senior vice president for commercial properties and airline affairs. “Since opening in 2013, Final Approach has become a favorite place for people to wait for arriving passengers, offering free Wi-Fi, flight information boards and a great lineup of dining options.”
