Once the home of thriving steel mills built in the 1920s, the 149 acres known as Ironton in the southeast corner of Provo is preparing for a revitalization. The decades-long project has finally jumped through all the economic and environmental hoops to become a developed industrial area know as Mountain Vista Industrial Park.
The city, state and Environmental Protection Agency have been working together since the early 1990s to clean up any contaminated areas, and now they have the nod to develop. Residents driving along State Street on the way to Springville may have noticed trees and brush being cleared, drainage pipes being installed and two roads being laid out. Developers expect this area will be for light industry. Daily Herald
