Is the catwalk and lighthouse still under construction? We don't want to drive all the way from Pittsburgh, PA and be disappointed.

No, but if you want that experience go up to Ludington, MI. They have a light house that you can climb to the top in. There is a small gift shop and a small charge to climb to the top.
