The current Utah Inland Port jurisdictional area is made up of approximately 16,000 acres in one of the few remaining undeveloped areas of Salt Lake County. It sits at the intersection of two interstate freeways, major national railways, and an international airport which puts the area in high demand for expanding warehouse, distribution, and manufacturing.
Most of the area is privately-owned and approximately 7,000 acres are vacant and suitable for development.
