WASHINGTON-- The National Park Service announced today that Perini Management Services was awarded a $5.6 million contract to begin restoring the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site. This contract is for the first phase of a three-phase project.  Phase one will restore the interior and exterior of Dr. Woodson's home and stabilize the adjacent buildings.  

"This is a major step in opening Dr. Woodson's home for people to visit," Superintendent Gopaul Noojibail said.  "The National Park Service is committed to sharing our nation's history, and restoring, preserving and opening his home will help people learn about and honor Dr. Woodson's work and legacy."

Phase one of construction will begin in early June 2015 and is expected to last 12-18 months.  Once this phase is complete, the public will be able to visit the Woodson Home on a limited basis through pre-arranged tours.
