Denver International Airport is spending over $11 million dollars on a welcome to Denver sign.


Denver International Airport, in conjunction with Panasonic, is about to spend over $11 million dollars on a “welcome to Denver” sign.  While the price tag may be formidable, so is the welcome. The sign is expected to be nearly a quarter of a mile long and fully lit with LEDs.  Panasonic, who just opened a factory at the 61st and Pena commuter rail station, is covering $4.5 million of the cost.  Advertisements will also be displayed on the sign, and DIA and Panasonic will be splitting the revenue. Judging from the size of it, residents of Green Valley Ranch with windows facing the airport may need to invest in some good blackout shades for their windows.
