BLUFFDALE — Officials are asking visitors to the Veterans Cemetery in Bluffdale to "pardon our dust."
Utah Department of Veterans Affairs deputy director Dennis McFall says visitors will soon see large sections of dead grass and bare dirt as work is done to level and realign headstones.
McFall says wild grasses and weeds also will be removed to prepare for new sod. He says cemetery operations and burials will continue as normal.
Visitors are asked to contact the cemetery's administration office to locate existing graves while the project is under way. Flowers can still be placed on graves but it's possible they will be removed so the work can take place.
The project is scheduled to be completed later this year.
