SALT LAKE CITY — Officials from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints say that ongoing construction and renovation will push the Salt Lake Temple reopening to 2025.

When the renovation project was initially announced, church officials said that construction would last through 2024.

“The seismic strengthening of the Salt Lake Temple and the extensive remodel of the Temple and surrounding area are sacred and significant undertakings,” the First Presidency said in a statement.

“As the project has progressed, we have learned a great deal about the condition of the temple and its surroundings. The work is truly remarkable and is being guided by the First Presidency.

“Inspired modifications and additions to the project and scope have been made so the temple and Temple Square can serve many generations yet to come. It is anticipated that the temple and its surroundings will be completed in 2025.

“We look forward to welcoming the world at that time to visit, tour and learn about this sacred temple and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”

The Salt Lake Temple has been closed for renovation since December 2019.
