Denver International Airport Construction Delays
The next time passengers drive to the Denver International Airport you should expect delays for dropping off and picking up airport travelers. The DIA South Terminal Redevelopment Program is scheduled to start in the month of May 2012, Denver International Airport will demolish and reconfigure the bridges that connect Peña Boulevard to the south end of DIA Terminal. Bridge Levels 4, 5, and 6 reconstruction will result in some temporary detours to DIA’s passenger pick-up and drop-off.

Starting mid-May 2012, for passengers traveling by RTD bus or Mt. Elbert/Pikes Peak parking shuttle:
•Passenger drop-off and pick-up will share the Departures Level 6 East side. Delays will be expected
•Colorado Airport Transportation, LLC Curb side service: Limousine service and 1-10 passenger shuttle service will pick up and drop off at their same location on Level 5 Island #1 ( best option to avoid delays and closest to terminals)

•Arrival (passenger pick-up) traffic will be detoured through the covered parking garage to pick-up passengers curbside on Level 4. Covered parking customers expect heavy traffic and delays
