Oil Spill Update

To date the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has not reached Round Island or the lighthouse.  The City has issued a Notice to Proceed to the company that has been contracted to relocate the base of the lighthouse from Round Island to the mainland.  However, both the City and the contractor are waiting to see the ultimate outcome of the oil spill before beginning the relocation process, as first phase of the relocation will involve a few weeks of work on the island to dig out the lighthouse and move it to the barge.

More updates will follow as the process moves forward.
