Port St. Joe Selects Engineers for Cape San Blas Move

From the Feb. 21, 2013, Gulf County (Fla) Star "City taps Preble Rish to manage lighthouse move" by Tim Croft.

Port St. Joe approved Preble Rish Engineers as project manager to move the Cape San Blas Lighthouse into the city at a planned bayfront park.

The physical move of the lighthouse still requires funding and bidding for services.

The final federal work conveying the lighthouse to the city should be in any day.  Once it is received, a six-month plan is in place.  Right now, one of the best options is to move the structures by barge which would save big money by reducing the distance to be moved and possibility of damage to the structure.

There is also the suggestion to move it by helicopter.
