Preserve Fort Jefferson – Phase II
Dry Tortugas National Park

National Park Service - Denver



Stone & Lime worked with Enola Contracting as contractor and consultant on the Phase II repairs at Fort Jefferson, located 70 miles west of Key West, FL in the Gulf of Mexico. The repairs included selective demolition of masonry to remove the iron Totten Shutter, armor blocks and lintel, the installation of new GFRC armor block and lintel facsimiles, and the associated repair and repointing of the masonry using approx. 100 tons of natural cement. Our involvement in the 1st phase in 2004 included the identification and remanufacture of original materials including natural cement, brick, cast iron and lead concrete, the design and installation of a cast iron Totten Shutter and the re-pointing of 30 feet of façade from moat water line to parapet using natural cement from Rosendale, NY.
