Provo City Center Temple time-lapse video shows construction progress

The 85,000-square-foot, Victorian-style Provo City Center Temple has undergone vast progress since its construction was announced in October 2011.

Now, anyone with access to the Internet can follow the progress daily.

A Work Zone Cam website is home to a webcam aimed toward the temple, providing updates every half hour on the temple's transformation.

The webcam may not show much change on a daily basis, but a time-lapse video available on the same Web page shows the temple evolving from a four-wall construction site to a shingled, roof-topped building complete with the Angel Moroni.

According to the Daily Herald, recent construction updates include the framing of the south end gazebo, an area reserved for non-temple patrons to wait and for wedding parties to take pictures.

The temple is being built inside the remaining walls of the Provo Tabernacle, which was gutted by a fire in 2010. The temple is anticipated to be completed in late 2015.
