Salt Lake County is exploring a northern extension of 7200 West from SR‑201 to approximately 700 North to help establish an important arterial roadway for a multi‑modal transportation network. As the only undeveloped area remaining in Salt Lake City, the Northwest Quadrant (NWQ) is a regionally significant area for economic development and job growth. The relocation of the Utah State Correctional Facility, the location of the new Amazon and UPS distribution centers, and an inland port will accelerate development and job creation in this area.
Salt Lake County has contracted with
H.W. Lochner to complete this study.
