Denver International Airport's Jeppesen Terminal is being remodeled.

Denver International Airport's Jeppesen Terminal is being remodeled.

Officials of Denver International Airport say the airport's contractor redeveloping its main terminal may be breaching its agreement.

In a letter Friday, DIA officials said Denver Great Hall LLC needs to make changes to address concerns.

The airport officials' main issues are fire-damaged escalators caused by demolition, cleaning delays and concerns about minority hires.

The project -- which involves moving the airport's security check-in points from the main terminal's Great Hall to a higher level near DIA's airline check-in stations -- is years behind schedule.

"We continue to work through a number of issues on the Great Hall Project but areas which we will not compromise on are safety and quality. We have a responsibility to protect our passengers and employees and when any of our contractors take actions that we believe are unsafe, we address them immediately," DIA said in a statement to 9News.

The developers said in a statement that the assertions in the letter are not fair.

“We are disappointed by -- and completely disagree with -- the mischaracterizations and false allegations made in these letters,” said Alana Watkins, spokeswoman for the company.
