LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- It's one of the last of its kind in the country, and it will soon be gone.

Utah State University is phasing out the trailer park on its campus.

Aging infrastructure, including waterlines and other underground maintenance, are forcing the school to phase out the trailers.

The school's mobile home park has about 100 trailers and has served thousands of students and faculty over the years. The trailers were rented to single parents attending USU and USU employees.

The future of the trailer park land has not been decided. But the school says it has no plan to rebuild family housing there.
