60 Foot Tall Cross Takes Shape

A local church reaches a major milestone in construction of a 60 foot tall cross despite some weather delays.

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.
