The majority of the population is
concentrated around the Salt Lake City area, although the southwest corner
(closer to Las Vegas and southern California) is also growing. There
are large distribution centers in this area which service the region west of
the Rocky Mountains by good interstate highways and major railways which
follow similar routes.
|As can be seen
below, Salt Lake City forms a fork in the routes to the west coast.
Interstate 80 (I-80) links to the east via Cheyenne (rather than the more
congested route through Denver), and continues west through Reno and the
Donner Summit to Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area. Interstate
15 (I-15) connects through Las Vegas to the Los Angeles and San Diego areas,
including access to central areas (such as Bakersfield) without the
congestion along the coastal highways. There are also routes to the
Pacific Northwest via Boise, Idaho on Interstate 84 (I-84) to Seattle and
Tacoma Washington, Portland, Salem and Eugene Oregon as well as routes north
to Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Butte, Helena, and Spokane.
