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.

Winter Weather Advisory for March 23, 2013

Home

DENVER, CO — March 23, 2013 — Denver is experiencing a snow storm today, which is expected to last through the evening. The following is a summary of the currently available information for travelers.

The FAA is reporting that some flights in and out of Denver are being delayed an average of 2.5 hours due to the weather today. In addition:

  • We expect heavy snow and possibly fog later this morning, which could lead to additional delays. It’s important that passengers check their flight status at flydenver.com or with their airline. We are also asking passengers to give themselves lots of extra time to reach the airport, as surrounding roads are icy and traffic speeds in the area have slowed considerably.
  • The airlines are reporting a handful of cancellations for today.
  • The airlines are currently in full deicing operations, which means that passengers should expect to spend a little bit longer on the plane before departing (15-30 minutes).
  • DIA has more than 250 pieces of snow removal equipment and 500 trained snow removal personnel.
  • RTD is running a full schedule to DIA, with delays up to 30 minutes.

Travel Tips for Passengers

Check your flight status before heading out to the airport with their airline or on www.flydenver.com.

Drive with caution and allow extra time when heading to the airport.

A good rule of thumb is to be inside the airport two hours prior to flight departure time. This should allow for plenty of time to navigate flight check-in, security lines and travel to the gate.

DIA recommends passengers download the free FlySmart travel app for the Blackberry, iPhone and Android. FlySmart Airport is the only travel app that features content downloaded directly from www.flydenver.com.
