Cape Hatteras Lighthouse makeover underway

The National Park Service is undertaking restoration of the historic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.

Research about how to remove red, white and black paint from the 150-year old structure is underway with a demonstration of dry-ice removal.

The new method would replace chemical peeling or sand blasting, both of which leave residue or damage masonry. The dry-ice demonstration using a nozzle only produced large chips of white paint in what appeared to be two paint layers which were easily picked up.
