About West Jordan

West Jordan, Utah

West Jordan is a city and a suburb of Salt Lake City in the U.S. state of Utah. West Jordan is a rapidly growing suburb of Salt Lake City, with a balanced housing stock, quality commercial districts and a strong industrial base. The Jordan Landing mixed use development, carefully located in the major growth area of Salt Lake County, is the focal point of retail development. West Jordan's proximity to major transportation corridors provides easy access to the Salt Lake City International Airport, world-class destination resorts, universities and colleges, and numerous employment opportunities along the Wasatch Front [1]. As of the 2000 Census, the city had a population of 68,336; by 2005, West Jordan had an estimated population of 91,444, placing it as the fourth most populated in the state. As of February 2007, the city of West Jordan had an estimated population of 101,638, breaking the 100,000 mark and maintaining its role as a residential and commercial hub of activity in the south western part of Salt Lake County. With its continuing economic boom, West Jordan is expected to reach a population of 150,000 by 2030.[2]

Jordan Landing

Jordan Landing

The city occupies the southwest end of the Salt Lake Valley at an elevation of 4,330 feet (1,320 m). The valley is surrounded by mountains that rise dramatically to an elevation of 11,752 feet (3,582 m). Named after the nearby Jordan River, the limits of the city begin on the river's western bank and end in the eastern foothills of the Oquirrh Mountains, where Bingham Canyon Mine, the world's largest man-made excavation, is located.

Settled by Mormons in the mid-19th century, mainly to provide natural resources and military defenses for Salt Lake City, the city has developed into its own regional center in the 21st century. Currently the city has four major retail centers; Jordan Landing is one of the largest mixed-use planned developments in the Intermountain West [3].

Companies headquartered in West Jordan include Wasatch Software, Cyprus Credit Union, Mountain America Credit Union, and Dunford Bakeries. Corporations with regional centers in the city are Sysco, Kraftmaid, Balkamp, Fairchild Semiconductor, and Dannon Yogurt Company. West Jordan is the base of the Utah Army National Guard and home to the state's second-largest courthouse. The city has one major hospital, Jordan Valley, and a campus of Salt Lake Community College, which is planned to become the main campus upon completion in 2020.

City landmarks include the historic Sugar Factory, built in 1916, Gardner Village, established in 1850, and Salt Lake City Municipal 2 Airport, commonly referred to as "Airport #2", Salt Lake County's regional airport for smaller passenger planes.

Geography

Looking down and westward at the city and the Oquirrh Mountains from Snowbird Ski Resort in the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains.
Looking down and westward at the city and the Oquirrh Mountains from Snowbird Ski Resort in the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains.

West Jordan is located at 40°36′23″N, 111°58′34″W (40.606385, -111.976217).GR1 According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 80.0 km² (30.9 mi²), all land.

West Jordan is bordered on the west by the Oquirrh Mountains and on the east by the Jordan River. The western neighborhoods of Welby, Copper Hills, and Jordan Hills are rapidly-growing regions located along the lower slopes of the eastern Oquirrh Mountains. The fastest development is currently taking place between 4800 West and Utah State Route 111, a highway that traverses the slopes of the Oquirrh Mountains.

The city lies approximately 18 miles southwest of downtown Salt Lake City. The city is bordered on the north by Taylorsville and Kearns, on the south by South Jordan, on the east by Sandy, Murray and Midvale, on the west by Copperton, and on the extreme northwestern corner by West Valley City.

Transportation

Interstate 15, a twelve-lane freeway, is located east of the city limits, providing access from the north and south, while Interstate 215, an eight-lane beltway, is located northeast of the city. Bangerter Highway (Utah State Route 154), a six-lane expressway, traverses the center of the city, just east of Airport #2 and the Jordan Landing shopping center. Due to severe traffic congestion plaguing the rapidly growing city, "A ten-lane freeway in the Mountain View Corridor is planned to have three exits in the city and run north-south at 5800 West. The road is currently undergoing environmental review and no date for completion has been set.

New Bingham Highway, mostly a four-lane road, begins as 7720 South at State Street (U.S. Route 89) in Midvale, curves into 7800 South as it enters the city, and finally heads southwest to end at Copperton. Redwood Road (Utah State Route 68), a six-lane road, runs through the eastern portion of the city. In the far western extremes of the city, Utah State Route 111, a two-lane road, runs through the developing rural area along the foothills. Development between 4800 West and SR-111 is continuing rapidly with more development extending past SR-111 to as far as 7400 West.

West Jordan is served by the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) bus system, with most lines running every 30 minutes during peak hours and every hour the rest of the day. UTA will impliment more frequent and extended bus service in August 2007 [5] with a new route extending down the now completed 90th South extention to 48th West to help accomidate increasing demand on the west side. UTA is also planning to construct a new TRAX light rail line, dubbed the "Mid-Jordan Line", which will run in an existing railroad corridor and serve the city with six stations. The line, which will terminate at the Daybreak Community in South Jordan, is expected to be completed in 2009.

Transportation has been a major issue in city politics. During the past 30 years the city has expanded rapidly from about 4,000 in 1970 to almost 100,000 in 2005, outstripping the capacity of roadways and infrastructure. At City Council meetings it has been common for residents, particularly those on the western edge of the city, to complain about having one-hour commutes to downtown Salt Lake City, a distance of 26 miles. The mayor has blamed this situation on the fact that the city is the most populated in the state that is not directly served by a freeway. To help allieviate traffic pains, West Jordan is improving and widening roads throughout the city in projects such as adding a westbound lane to 78th south at the split from New Bingham Highway, adding a left turn lane onto Airport Road at New Bingham, and extending 90th south to have four continuous lanes to 56th west [6].
