Construction Updates September 2020

September 29, 2020

We are approaching the end of the ninth month of construction on the Salt Lake Temple renovation project.

The process this month continues with additional shoring around the temple as well as removing debris, which has been separated out for recycling. [image 5938]


North of the temple, workers continue to dig and remove soil for the shoring walls.


On the south side of the temple, the footing for a large crane is being prepared. This crane is a general tower crane that will be used for reaching each of the towers of the temple.


The shoring for the tower crane footing is also being strengthened with beams.


Take a look at the current aerial view showing the south, east, and north sides of the temple.

The end of August and beginning of September show a continuation of work on the shoring, drilling, and debris cleanup on the Salt Lake Temple renovation project. Development of the secant wall on the south side of the temple also continues.

This week, due to a storm in the area, work on the renovation project was paused for a time for the safety of the workers. The storm caused damage to many of the trees and some of the fencing on Temple Square. Many of our female missionaries who serve those visiting Temple Square volunteered their time alongside the garden staff to help with the cleanup of debris.
