LDS-funded Kirtland Roadwork In Progress

KIRTLAND, OHIO -- A major redesign of the routes taken by roads near the Kirtland Temple is underway, and the project is expected to ease access for tourists visiting the Kirtland historic sites. The work was made possible by a $3 million donation from the LDS Church. It will proceed the construction of a new LDS visitor's center in Kirtland and replicas of a sawmill and ashery that once stood nearby.

The project began in 1999 and the LDS Church announced its plan to build the new visitors center and replica buildings in April 2000. When completed in 2003, the new center will hold up to 120 visitors in a main auditorium and three smaller theaters.

Local LDS Church spokesman Darson Roper said that the changes will have a significant effect on the area around the Temple. "All this area will become a walking area," Roper said, "relieving the noise and congestion [of cars] in the summer."
