Latter-day Saint temples continue to be built around the world as the gospel of Jesus Christ rolls forth. Here’s a quick look at temple news and updates from this last week.

Excavation Completed for the Elko Nevada Temple

Black tarps encircle the sloped edges of the excavation area for the Elko Nevada Temple. Ground preparation activities have been underway for the past three months, which included mass excavation and bringing in a superior material. The temple site, located on Ruby Vista Drive, has a beautiful view of the Ruby Mountains.

Forming the Basement Walls of the Lindon Utah Temple

On the north and south sides of the Lindon Utah Temple, forms have been set for the walls of the basement level. The subbasement walls on the south end have already cured, allowing the next level to rise. Steel embed plates are visible along the surface of the forms, which are used to connect structural steel to concrete.

Parapet Poured for the St. George Utah Temple Addition

Concrete posts have been poured for the parapet on top of the west addition of the St. George Utah Temple. The parapet will feature the same iconic battlements that give the historic temple its castlelike appearance as a fortress for the King of Kings. The temple is scheduled to reopen in late 2022.

Lettering Painted at the Saratoga Springs Utah Temple

Craftsmen at the Saratoga Springs Utah Temple are painting the inscription lettering on the building’s monument signs and entrance portico. Inside, crews are positioning furniture and hanging artwork. Landscapers have nearly finished the job of arranging functional and aesthetically beautiful grounds while punch list items are being identified to bring the temple to final completion. No dates have been announced yet for the open house and dedication.
