Lack Of Funding Stalls Bodie Island Lighthouse Restoration

Restoration of the Bodie Island Lighthouse is ending for the year because of a lack of funding.

Superintendent Mike Murray says the contractor will begin demobilization of the interior and exterior scaffolding this week and it must be completed by April 7, 2011.

The National Park Service has placed the project in its fiscal year 2012 line item construction funding request.

Work on the famed lighthouse on the Outer Banks will resume when funding is appropriated.
