What Is The Northwest Quadrant?


The Northwest Quadrant is where the new state prison will be located.

Officials say the infrastructure that will be coming with the prison should bring a lot of jobs in the area.

That area is located at I-80, Salt Lake International Airport and the International Center. Officials have laid out a two year timeline on when everything should be finished. 

In December of this year, the Department of Economic Development meets with key stakeholders to help develop a master plan for the area.

In January of 2017, Salt Lake City will release designs for infrastructure for the area and will be available for the public to review.

In the Summer and Fall of 2017, the city is expected to complete zoning recommendations of the area.

By the end of 2018, construction on infrastructure will be complete.

And by 2020, the new state prison will be done.
