Construction detours on the east side of Jeppesen Terminal are in place for Level 4 and Level 6 through late 2014 and include restrictions on vehicle height, weight and size.

  • Level 4 (Arrivals): Drivers picking up passengers will exit through the east garage to Peña Boulevard
  • Level 5: Traffic will not change and will remain in its current configuration
  • Level 6 (Departures): Drivers dropping off passengers will exit via a temporary ramp to Peña Boulevard

VEHICLE RESTRICTIONS:

  • Level 4 (Arrivals): Vehicles more than eight feet in height, weighing more than 40,000 pounds or pulling trailers must use Terminal West
  • Level 6 (Departures): Vehicles more than 14 feet in height, weighing more than 40,000 pounds or pulling trailers must use Terminal West

Terminal East detours will be in place through late 2014. Motorists may encounter intermittent lane closures during this time. The detours are for the east side of Jeppesen Terminal only and do not impact Terminal West traffic or parking.

Airlines located on Terminal East include: AirTran, Alaska, Delta, Frontier, Great Lakes, JetBlue, Southwest and Spirit. All airline counters are accessible inside Jeppesen Terminal.

Workers are demolishing and rebuilding the Terminal East levels 4 and 6 bridges (the Level 5 bridge has already been reconstructed) as part of DIA’s Hotel and Transit Center Program. When the work is completed in late 2014, all of the bridges on the south side of Jeppesen Terminal will be in their permanent alignments.

Reminder: Oversized vehicles or vehicles pulling trailers must use Terminal West due to height and weight restrictions on the east side.

DIA’s Hotel and Transit Center Program includes the construction of a 519-room Westin hotel and conference center, a public plaza and a transit center. The transit center will serve all Regional Transportation District (RTD) buses and the new RTD East Rail Line. The new Hotel and Transit Center will open in 2015. RTD’s East Rail Line, which will connect DIA to downtown Denver, will begin operations in 2016.
