The Reopening of the Washington Monument

Washington Monument - Thumb

If you have not been on a DC guided tour recently, then you may not realize the Washington Monument has been reopened for almost 2 years since its closure due to repairs and renovations. Watch the video for a brief recount of the amazing reconstruction of the Washington Monument.

After suffering from a nearby earthquake in 2011, the Washington Monument had several cracks and loose bricks. Since there was no access to the outside of the 555-foot tall landmark, engineers had to build an entire tower of scaffolding, complete with an elevator, around the Monument. After 3 years of renovations, the Washington Monument finally reopened in May of 2014.
