The 1859 Cape May Lighthouse in New Jersey is undergoing the final phase of a restoration project that has been under way for 12 years and is expected to be finished in time to reopen to the public the first week in April.

The nearly $1 million effort includes the restoring and painting of the ironwork throughout the tower, including the 199 steps; repair of plaster and woodwork; repointing masonry, and installing a fire detection and security system.

The lighthouse, at Cape May Point, is operated by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts; call (800) 275-4278.
