It appears the loop drive to the left of the mausoleum  will Not Get any limestone, gravel, of wire put into the base under the asphalt topping as the rest of the cemetery drives.  Although this drive services about 1/3 of the OLD Cemetery . It appears there wasen't anything done to the base of this area when it was done about twenty some years ago either.  Why ?  I was told by city , it has a good base. It would have the same base as the entrances off Monroe St.  Was it just to cut costs for the Old Section ? because no-one would notice.
