Washington Monument getting needed repairs

Posted: Updated:

The Washington Monument is getting a facelift.

The National Park Service released "helmet-cam" video of workers topping off the scaffolding around the monument on Monday.

The monument has been closed since August of 2011, when Washington was struck by a 5.8-magnitude earthquake, leaving it with stresses and cracks throughout the entire structure.

The monument is expected to remain closed to the public until next year, as crews finish up repairs.
