Salt Lake City, often shortened to Salt Lake or SLC, is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state of Utah. With a population of 186,440 as of the 2010 Census, the city lies in the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, which has a total population of 1,145,905. Salt Lake City is further situated in a larger urban area known as the Wasatch Front, which has a population of 2,328,299. It is one of only two major urban areas in the Great Basin (the other being Reno, Nevada), and the largest in the Intermountain West.
Salt Lake City's Roads
Salt Lake City lies at the convergence of two cross-country freeways; I-15, which runs north-to-south just west of downtown, and I-80, which connects downtown with Salt Lake City International Airport just to the west and exits to the east through Parley's Canyon. I-215 forms a 270-degree loop around the city. SR-201 extends to the western Salt Lake City suburbs. The Legacy Parkway, a controversial and oft-delayed freeway, opened September 2008, heading north from I-215 into Davis County along the east shore of the Great Salt Lake. Travel to and from Davis County is complicated by geography as roads have to squeeze through the narrow opening between the Great Salt Lake to the west and the Wasatch Mountains to the east. Only four roads run between the two counties to carry the load of rush hour traffic from Davis County. Salt Lake City's surface street system is laid out on a simple grid pattern. Road names are numbered with a north, south, east, or west designation, with the grid originating at the southeast corner of Temple Square downtown. One of the visions of Brigham Young and the early settlers was to create wide, spacious streets, which characterizes downtown. The grid pattern remains fairly intact in the city, except on the East Bench, where geography makes it impossible. The entire Salt Lake Valley is laid out on the same numbered grid system, although it becomes increasingly irregular farther into the suburbs. Many streets carry both a name and a grid coordinate. Both can be used as an address. US-89 enters the city from the northwest and travels the length of the valley as State Street.
"Salt Lake City, Utah is the perfect city for collector car enthusiast. Loaded with classic car dealerships, any car you can imagine is up for sale in Salt Lake City." ~ David - Salt Lake City Car Sales Mgr.
"I contacted Pinnacle Auto Appraisers because I was interested in a 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle located in Ogden, UT. I spent numerous hours on the phone with the dealership asking questions on condition, performance, etc. I also did my research online to make sure this vehicle matched the description they gave me. Due to the price I was paying for this car, I hired Pinnacle to do a pre-purchase inspection. I wanted to make sure my investment was worth it, instead of making a $25K mistake. After the vehicle was inspected, I received a phone call from one of their Certified Auto Aprpaisers. He went over the inspection report with me and answered any questions I had during the phone call. Not even 24 hours went by and I received the Pre-Purchase Inspection report right into my email inbox. I opened the report and man was I impressed. Not only was it done professionally but they included more than enough photos to justify the condition of the vehicle. I ended up making a better deal on the car and happy to say I am now a new owner of a 1972 Chevelle SS, which was my dream car in high school." ~ Jerry A. from Austin, TX
