Sand Island Light House
The eight flights of internal stairs, rails and
landings have all experienced considerable
corrosion over the life of the lighthouse, as
has the lantern room and exterior platform
and associated handrail surrounding the outside of the lantern room. The
structural integrity of these metal features has been weakened to the point
that they are unreliable for restoration. The stairs, handrails, and landings
and associated hangar rods and platform brackets and all metal associated
with the lantern room need to be repaired or replaced if safe access is to be
provided to the top of the lighthouse.
