NORTH HEAD — Stone masons continue work on North Head Lighthouse restoration in Cape Disappointment State Park, aided by unusually gentle January weather.

The crew from Pioneer Waterproofing Co. of Tigard, Oregon, plans to begin fitting new sandstone facing blocks at the base of the lighthouse tower in mid-February.

The firm has led a variety of major masonry restoration projects, including at Heceta Head Lighthouse near Florence, Oregon, in 2012.

A separate project that is soon to start will make lighthouse site access compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
