DENVER (CBS4) – A temporary TSA PreCheck enrollment center opens Tuesday morning to help manage the large amounts of people registering for a faster airport security experience.

After extended security line waits across the country in the spring, lots of people are signing up for the supposed faster method of TSA PreCheck. The popularity, though, has caused appointment backlogs.

A temporary center will open in Glendale for just five days to aid the increase. Between Aug. 2 and Aug. 6, applicants can go to meeting room number four at the Hyatt Place Denver/Cherry Creek (4150 East Mississippi Avenue).

Hours on Tuesday and Wednesday are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and for Thursday through Saturday hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For those who want to avoid lines at this temporary enrollment center, TSA suggests pre-enrolling online.

There are still upwards of 11,000 people enrolling each day in TSA PreCheck across the nation. The hope is that the demand for a faster way to travel will also cut down on the length of the general security line.

PreCheck lines exist at more than 160 airports, though not all airlines participate. The largest airlines participating at Denver International Airport are United and Southwest. Frontier will begin participating at the end of September.
