A concrete slab was laid on the grounds of the Laurel Hill Memorial Gardens recently to support a 38-ton mausoleum that is to be delivered. A large crane will also be on-site to lift the mausoleum from the delivery truck and place it on the slab.
Two small areas were carved out of the base of the hill to accommodate the crane's outriggers.
The red arrow shows the tight turn where the crane got stuck.
A few days later, crushed stone was placed on the muddy perimeter of the turn. Another delivery attempt with a different crane will be made Monday morning, April 3. A source close to the project told Columbia Spy that the four-unit, $50,000 mausoleum is currently being stored on the truck.
