Work at Beaver Head goes Forward

The Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District/ Michigan Works! Division and Charlevoix Public Schools have accepted bids for the Lighthouse and Fog Signal restoration in the following areas:

  • General Trades: Pinnacle Integrated Construction & Design
  • Doors: Northern Michigan Glass
  • Masonry: Northern Restoration
  • Roofing & Sheetmetal: Haggard Plumbing & Heating
  • Plaster: Bouma Corporation
  • Fire Protection: Haggard Plumbing & Heating
  • Plumbing & HVAC: Haggard Plumbing & Heating
  • Electrical: Haggard Plumbing & Heating
  • Painting: yet to be determined.

The DEQ and the State Historic Preservation Office have approved specs from Diekema/Hamann Architecture, and we expect National Park Service approval soon. We hope to begin work in June, which means there will be limitations this summer on the accessibility of the public to certain areas. Hopefully, everyone can appreciate the necessity to maintain a perimeter around the construction zones. We are optimistically looking forward to getting the restoration completed during the short summer construction season and re-opening to the public and tourists as soon as possible.
