As part of Denver International Airport’s efforts to improve safety and traffic flow on Peña Boulevard near the airport, crews will close a small section of inbound Peña Boulevard between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. on May 15 for necessary work on the project, including the installation of large overhead signage. Traffic will be detoured onto Jackson Gap, along 75th Avenue and Shady Grove Street and then back onto Peña Boulevard (click here for a detour map)
Motorists should follow all posted signs and plan ahead – delays of up to 60 minutes are possible and passengers should give themselves additional time to get to the airport.
During the closure, detours will be in place. All airport traffic will be routed to East Terminal on May 15 between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. Passengers being dropped off or picked up at the airport during this time should follow signs for Terminal East. RTD buses will pick up and drop off on Level 6 East near door 609 during the closure. Passengers can access all airlines from the east side of the terminal.
On May 15, between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. passengers will not be able to access economy parking. Instead, all passengers parking at the airport during this time should follow signage for East Garage Parking. All vehicles that enter the East Garage during the closure will be charged the economy parking rates which are $5 per hour, $17 for days 1-3, and $15 for days 4+.
The overnight closures of Peña Boulevard have been carefully planned during times when traffic volumes are lowest along the roadway.
