Just over six months ago, the doors of the Salt Lake Temple closed to patrons as the first steps of the temple’s renovation began. Now, scaffolding surrounds the temple spires, and the project is just starting.
Deseret News reported on some of the changes that have taken place during the first six months, which includes uncovering the foundation, demolishing and dismantling annexes, and removing ornate finials.
Recently, the sealing wing has been separated from the north side of the temple and its roof has been removed. This wing will be dismantled completely after workers protect the temple walls in the area.
