Starting Sunday and lasting through October, six miles of Peña Boulevard will be undergoing repairs five nights a week, which means it’ll probably take a little longer to get to and from Denver International Airport.

The work is part of a $4.2 million capital improvement project involving concrete repair and replacement on Peña from Tower Road to the airport and repairs on the bridges between Interstate 70 and Jackson Gap Road.

There will be overnight lane closures while construction is taking place Sundays through Thursdays from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. inbound to the airport, and from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. outbound.

Work begins this Sunday with bridge joint maintenance at East 40th and East 56th avenues, and single-lane closures.
