The New Provo City Center Temple

I frequently drive by the new Provo, Utah City Center Temple being constructed on the corner of University Avenue and 100 South by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The building is nearing construction. The Open House will be held from Friday, January 15, through Saturday, March 5, 2016, except for Sundays. We are most interested in seeing how they are going to manage the parking in downtown Provo during the Open House.

The building has been beautifully restored. Quoting from the official Temple website:
The Provo City Center Temple will recapture the historic beauty of the former Provo Tabernacle through meticulous preservation and careful study of the design of the original structure. Interior components that survived the fire including wood moldings, newel posts, and balustrades, will be used as models for the production of rich woodwork and other design elements used throughout the temple.
Again according to the website,
The Provo City Center Temple will be dedicated in three sessions at 9:00 a.m., 12:00 noon, and 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 20, 2016. All sessions will be broadcast to the stakes and districts in Utah. 
It is interesting. I can drive from the south end of the Utah Valley, north to Ogden in an hour or two and pass by ten Temples. There are seven of them within an hour of my home.
