Monday construction crews installed the top of a 60-foot illuminated cross at New Life Assembly of God Church in Janesville.
The church's Reverend Michael Jackson said they had considered a 100 foot tall cross but thought it might be too ostentatious.
The church also plans to put a garden, walkway and benches around the cross. The cross was built in Alabama and transported to Janesville.
The project should be complete by the middle of June.
