In April 2019, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans for the renovation of the Salt Lake Temple.
“This project will enhance, refresh, and beautify the temple and its surrounding grounds,” said President Nelson. “Obsolete systems within the building will be replaced. Safety and seismic concerns will be addressed. Accessibility will be enhanced so that members with limited mobility can be better accommodated.”
The surrounding area on Temple Square and the plaza near the Church Office Building will also undergo renovation and restoration.
The Salt Lake Temple closed in December 2019 for renovation. The following are regular updates about the progress of the Salt Lake Temple renovation and other updates on Temple Square.
