Though the lighthouse itself is managed by the National Park Service, the light within the structure is maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard, which is responsible for the repairs.
The lighthouse has malfunctioned and has been temporarily turned off before, most recently in August of 2019. In 2018, the light was disabled for roughly a month due to damage from a wave of winter storms, and the need for a replacement part to be built from scratch.
The Island Free Press will continue to post updates on the lighthouse repairs as soon as they are available.
