The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will hold 2020’s first online auction of surplus land. Participants can bid on 18 properties from July 30 through August 6 on an online auction platform created and managed by SVN Auction Services.

One of the premier properties available is a 62-acre parcel in Saratoga Springs, near highways 145 and 68. While currently zoned for light manufacturing, the buyer/developer may apply for rezone to better realize the needs of the fast-growing community.

An adjacent 57-acre parcel is also being offered, with a starting bid at $3.5 million. Both of these parcels are ideal for mixed-use development and are situated in areas with rapid and dynamic economic growth.
