Conference Center Test Snarls Traffic, Draw's Thousands
ing this list.(Testing, testing . . . one, two, three)
Deseret News 29Mar00 N1

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- A test of the LDS Church's new Conference Center Tuesday night snarled traffic in downtown Salt Lake as thousands showed up to help the Church test the building's sound, security and other systems in preparation for this coming weekend's General Conference. The test involved thousands of volunteers from local LDS congregations who were admitted by ticket, just as they will be for General Conference.

The test was previously announced to the media, but the media were not invited to attend. The attendees filled the building so that sound and lighting could be tested for those in the hall, and also so that audio and video signals sent outside the building could also be fine-tuned and checked.

Officials also were able to test systems for controlling traffic flow, parking, seating and ushering. It is not known if the snarled traffic will be repeated on Saturday and Sunday because of the differences between weekday traffic and weekend traffic. However, the LDS Church did agree this past weekend to rent Salt Lake City's new TRAX light rail system in an attempt to relieve possible traffic pressures.
