Giant cross.

Miracle Cross

Giant cross near the fireworks stand on the Indiana side of the border, traveling westbound on I-70. Apparently referred to as the "miracle cross".

[Kitsa, 12/07/2012]

The miracle is that it was built at all, since church members have been dreaming of it since the 1970s. The cross is a steel frame with corrugated steel siding anchored in concrete, and stands 100 ft. tall. The same design has been used for other giant roadside crosses.
