DENVER — And so it begins.

The Great Hall construction project will take place in four phases:

  • Phase 1 - middle section of the Great Hall
  • Phase 2 - southern section (closest to the hotel and transit center)
  • Phase 3 - northern section
  • Phase 4 - where the Level 5 TSA screening areas are located today

Travelers will see temporary construction walls installed on Level 5 and Level 6 throughout July.
