DIA Marks Half-Way Point For Hotel, Train Construction
DENVER (CBS4)– Denver Mayor Michael Hancock helped mark the half-way point for construction completion for the new hotel and train station at Denver International Airport.
A time capsule was placed in the floor of the transit center on Tuesday. It will be opened in 50 years.
The $544 million project includes a 500-plus room hotel and conference center.
That is being built on top of the airport’s new rail station which will take commuters and travelers from Denver to DIA.
The project is more than a year into the five-year construction process.
Project managers said they’re right on track to open the hotel by Fall 2015 with trains operating by 2016.
