UPDATE: Grace Lawn Cemetery back open after erosion issues solved

ELKHART, Ind. -- We have an update on Grace Lawn cemetery in Elkhart.

Mayor Dick Moore told us that the city unlocked the gate on Wednesday afternoon.

The cemetery was closed on Sunday after we aired a story about severe erosion near plots along the St. Joseph River.

The city worked, dumping dirt along the river bank on Tuesday afternoon and then put a fence up.

Right now, the area is off limits.

The mayor assured us that the eroision will be checked daily.
