Environmental Assessment (EA) May 2022
Cape Hatteras National Seashore (the Seashore) is requesting the public's input on the environmental assessment for the repair of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse (the Lighthouse) and landscape improvements. Your participation is important to our planning process.
The NPS proposes to rehabilitate the interior and restore the exterior of the Lighthouse and implement landscape improvements. Specifically, the purpose of this project is to rehabilitate the interior and restore the exterior of the Lighthouse and its character-defining features, to repair or replace deteriorated materials and finishes, and to selectively reverse unsympathetic treatments added to the Lighthouse and the Oil House after 1920. Additionally, the project purpose includes providing a more immersive experience of the Cape Hatteras Light Station by defining pedestrian circulation patterns and considering ways to improve the resiliency of the light station and grounds suited to a coastal environment that is subject to heavy visitation.
