Phase 2 improvements begin on DIA Great Hall

Plans call for three escalators to move people from the new sixth-floor security station directly to the train platform.

DENVER — The north end of Denver International Airport’s terminal is about to become unrecognizable when Hensel Phelps begins building new security checkpoints as part of the Great Hall phase two improvements.

Plans call for three escalators to move people from the new sixth-floor security station directly to the train platform. Improvement should be functioning by the beginning of 2024, said outgoing airport CEO Kim Day, who is retiring July 16 after 13 years at the helm.

Day joined City of Denver officials, TSA representatives and Hensel Phelps Wednesday to announce the start of construction.

“Phase one is on schedule to be completed by the end of 2021, at almost $25 million under budget,” Day said. “Both phase one and two are within the original $770 million budget.”
