Beginning at 5:00 p.m., Sat., Nov. 16 through 5:00 a.m., Sun., Nov. 17 crews will reduce eastbound Peña Boulevard to one lane from Jackson Gap Boulevard to just past the Terminal East/Terminal West split.
“It’s important to complete this work now before the busy holiday travel season begins,” said Stu Williams, program manager for Denver International Airport’s Hotel and Transit Center Program. “Traffic is expected to be heavy at times so anyone traveling to the airport after 5:00 p.m. on Saturday should allow extra time to reach the terminal.”
During the closure, crews with the Regional Transportation District (RTD) will repaint the roadway markings, adjust overhead signs and reopen all lanes of inbound Peña Boulevard, including two lanes between the Terminal East/West split and the entrance to Terminal West which were closed in summer 2012 to allow RTD to construct a new underpass for the future FasTracks East Rail Line to DIA. The area is known as the “triple stack” because the commuter train will pass beneath two Peña Boulevard bridges, one carrying inbound Terminal West traffic and another carrying outbound Terminal East traffic, creating three levels of transportation movement.
Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and leave extra time to reach the airport ahead of their scheduled flight.
Travelers should plan to reach the terminal two hours in advance of their flight’s scheduled departure.
DIA’s Hotel and Transit Center will open in 2015. RTD’s East Rail Line will begin operations in 2016.
