A small section of inbound Peña Boulevard will close between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. on Tuesday and Saturday of this week.

But don’t worry! You’ll still be able to get to Denver International Airport, it might just take a little bit longer.

Traffic will be detoured at Jackson Gap Street, which is in the middle of the rental car morass — past the relatively cheap Pike’s Peak parking lot but a bit before our red-eyed demonic equine mascot. All vehicles, including yours, will be routed to the east terminal via 75th and 80th Avenues.

And because words are hard to use while driving, here’s that same information in a map the airport made for people like us.

The airport’s economy lots will be closed, but visitors can park in the east garage at the economy rate.

And why the disruption? Airport crews will be installing large overhead signs as part of a bigger road work project. More details are available here.

If that’s all just too much to navigate, consider taking RTD’s A Line. You might even be able to see some of the work happen from your seat.
