The National Parks Service has announced several repair and renovation projects among its Outer Banks Group parks, including restoration of the Bodie Island Lighthouse, rehabilitation of the Ocracoke Lighthouse and renovation of facilities at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site. Money is coming from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the National Park Service.
The stimulus bill also provides money that will pay for more than 40 projects at Corps of Engineers sites in North Carolina, including replacing boat houses and maintaining the dam at W. Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir and repairing the tailrace area and other landscaping at Falls Lake, in addition to a variety of dredging operations along the Intracoastal Waterway. There will also be money to hire additional rangers during the height of the season at Kerr, Falls Lake and B. Everette Jordan Dam and Lake.
