Morgan Asphalt of Salt Lake City was nearing completion in mid-October of a $5.7 million contract to construct and install major portions of the infrastructure in the new Westport Industrial Center at 5600 West and I-80 in Salt Lake City. The project consists of over two miles of road construction with the associated underground utilities of water, sewer, and storm drain.

“This is a great project for our company that showcases our ability to provide full-service infrastructure,” says Thom Morgan, president of Morgan Asphalt.

Westport Industrial Center was once the site of a proposed regional mall for Western Salt Lake County and Tooele County. The site is owned by California based Forest City, who will lease or sale parcels for development.
