The U.S. Forest Service will accept bids in April for painting and restoration of the Point Iroquois Lighthouse Tower in Houghton, MI.

The painting contract is estimated at $25,000 to $150,000.

The project involves painting the interior and exterior of the tower—65 feet high and 16 feet in diameter at the base—and painting the lighthouse’s exterior. It also includes cleaning, paint removal, brick replacement, repointing, door and window replacement, painting and other related work on the adjacent two-story house on the property.

There will be a pre-bid meeting at the work site to discuss the scope of work. The date has yet to be determined, but the solicitation is expected to be available online in early April. The project was postponed from an earlier date, due to lack of funding.

Standing Watch

The lighthouse “stands watch where Lake Superior begins its treacherous rush into the St. Mary's River,” according to exploringthenorth.com. “The Ojibwa Indians massacred a group of invading Iroquois warriors at this location in 1662, giving the point its original Indian name. It was noted by the early explorers, but did not become significant until the St. Mary's Falls Ship Canal opened in 1855.”

The lighthouse was first illuminated in 1857 and, for a time, shone over one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world, historians say.

Reported by Paint BidTracker, a construction reporting service devoted to identifying contracting opportunities for the coatings community.
