Fresh asphalt stretches across the northwest quarter of the Saratoga Springs Utah Temple site where pavers are installing the parking areas for the religious complex. Curb and gutter has been poured around the meetinghouse and grounds building in preparation for paving as well. The exterior of the temple is changing regularly as the installation of precast concrete panels continues, providing an exciting spectacle for construction observers.

Large-scale construction is underway on the Puebla Mexico Temple, following a delay of several months after last November’s groundbreaking ceremony. A tower crane was assembled on site this week, and materials have been delivered to the staging areas. The temple is located near the Atoyac River across the street from a private golf course in the northwest section of the city.

The steeple frame has been erected atop the Praia Cabo Verde Temple, which will later be capped with a dome-shaped cupola and lantern. The concrete block exterior walls have been completed, and the window openings will soon be boarded to allow interior work to move forward. The foundation slab for the adjoining meetinghouse has cured, and support columns are now being poured along the perimeter of the building.
