U of Utah Institute to Get Security Fence

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- In a security move, the LDS Institute of Religion at the University of Utah is erecting a 6-foot-high chain-link fence around its 118,000-square-foot site on South Campus Drive. The temporary fence will come down after the Olympics and Paralympics, when construction on a new building on the site is complete. The fence is meant to keep the public out of the construction site. David Ogden, the LDS Church's construction manager, says that the fence is not a reaction to the September 11th terrorist attacks, nor does it have anything to do with the Olympics itself, although the Institute site is between Rice-Eccles Stadium, home to theOlympic's Opening and Closing ceremonies, and the Athletes Village, housed in the U's student housing complex east of the Institute.
