Construction workers installed the 13-foot-tall Moroni statue atop the Brigham City Temple Tuesday, July 12, 2011. The temple was among several announced by LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson at the October 2009 general conference, and ground was broken July 31, 2010. Construction on the temple is expected to take 18 to 20 months from the time of groundbreaking, and when completed, the Brigham City Temple will be Utah's 14th LDS temple.
