The Peña Boulevard improvements project is a mixed design-build and design-bid-build project that will redesign Peña Boulevard from I-70 to the Denver International Airport (DEN). This 11.1-mile freeway is the primary access route for DEN travelers, and airline and airport employees. Projects involved reconstruction and widening and geometric enhancements to improve safety and operations. Phase 1 of the project was a design-build, located between Jackson Gap and the DEN Terminal. This included rebuilding/realigning westbound Peña off-ramp and demolition of the 3.5-mile existing ramp and widening northbound lanes of Tower Road. Phases 2, 3, and 4 are design-bid-build and span from I-70 to Jackson Gap. Expanding and repairing Peña Boulevard is a significant undertaking that will reduce congestion, increase transportation efficiency, and help the airport prepare for future demands.

Triunity provided utility coordination and contract management of the $100M Peña Boulevard Phase I design-build project. Triunity assisted the project management team with creating utility base mapping information and drafting technical requirements for design-build contractor procurement. Early in the design phase of the project, our firm identified an opportunity during constructability review to eliminate an underutilized water main that would otherwise have required relocation, saving the project more than $1M.
