HUNTINGTON -

After years of extensive work, a historic Long Island lighthouse is now complete.

It was shut down for three years for a restoration that costed more than $1 million.

Some new improvements include adding steel and concrete barriers, as well as five-ton boulders around the foundation.

The lighthouse will once again be open to tour starting this coming Sunday.
