On Monday, January 9, 2006 roofing construction will begin at Fort Frederica National Monument and is expected to be completed by Friday, March 10, 2006. Local contractor, Allen and Graham, Inc. has been awarded the contract. The project will replace the original 1957 clay tile roof with exact replicas.
The Visitor Center will remain open during construction but visitors may experience short, minimal delays in order to ensure visitor safety while visiting the park. During construction the park will open to visitor traffic at 9 a.m.
