Lisa Dolan, Administrative Director of the Bloch Island South-East Light Foundation, which was created to save the lighthouse from erosion of the Monegan Bluffs. The $2.3 millionj project successfully moved the lighthouse back 245ft from its original position. A $2 million renovation is underway on the red brick Victorian icon. The Coast Guard maintains the light - on 24 hours a day. Snator John Chafee championed the cause after having it brought to his attention by Keith Lang, one of his re-election staffers with close ties to Block Island.
