Introduction

These maps are provided for the convenience of executives and their advisors who may be unfamiliar with Utah for business location selection.  Additional maps may be found on the websites of state and local economic development representatives, such as custom maps to illustrate data about key topics or available commercial real estate properties.

See : Directory of Utah economic development agencies.

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.
