The Denver International Airport represents the nation's second largest transportation improvement project. It is second only to the Boston Bay Tunnel Highway project. Perhaps more importantly, the pace of the New Denver project is greater. In calendar 1993, the total construction expenditure was approximately $1.2B. In the 1993 construction season (March - December 1993) approximately $1B was expended. Indeed with groundbreaking in November 1989 and completion of most major elements by March 1994, it is the pace of the project, coupled with its size, that presents an excellent opportunity to study the state of affairs of American airport planning and engineering. When something this large is constructed so fast there are bound to be some problems. This paper intends to discuss the project's location and scope and why it is being implemented.
