Denver pays $331 million for airport expansion, flood repairs
(Denver, Colo.) The Denver City Council extended various contracts for the renovation of Denver International Airport by $331 million over two years Monday. Some of the extensions became necessary after a pipe burst in December 2021 and flooded a newly renovated area of the airport. Hot water caused extensive damage. Although construction companies are working to obtain insurance settlements, they need to make repairs now. Other contract expansions come from a desire to add capacity at the airport.
