For those of you driving to the temple, it seems some GPS devices are not accounting for the recent change of Racine Avenue to one-way north. We suggest setting your GPS device to "Truman College" on Wilson Avenue, and from that point, drive north on Racine and you'll see our temple parking lot on the east side, just south of Leland Avenue.
