The Denver International Airport main terminal is an airport terminal, also known as the Jeppesen Terminal, is located in Denver, Colorado. The terminal has a peaked roof, designed by Fentress Bradburn Architects, and a catenary steel cable system supports the fabric roof. The terminal also has a pedestrian bridge connecting the terminal to concourse A, that allows pedestrians to view planes being taxied underneath the walkway. Funding was set aside for commissioning art at the airport, and part of its continuing operation budget is allocated for art going forward. The construction began in September 1989, with a scheduled opening date of October 1993. Due to design changes, the opening date was pushed back several times. A millwright strike also caused additional delays. The airport replaced the previously used airport (Stapleton) in February 1995. The airport is currently beginning additional construction and renovation.
