DENVER - The automated baggage system at Denver International Airport is three weeks behind schedule but will be ready in time for the airport's March 9 opening, a city of Denver project official said Monday.

"They have been delayed three weeks, basically because of subcontractor nonperformance," said Ginger Evans, the city's project manager. But, she said, "It will all be up and running three weeks prior to the opening."
