"Bad news for tourists visiting Washington, D.C., for the Cherry Blossom Festival next spring. The 555-foot-tall Washington Monument will be closed for the next nine months to fix the building's sole elevator, the National Park Service announced Wednesday evening. The monument has dealt with repeated elevator outages this summer, forcing tourists to descend the monument's fifty-five stories of stairs to exit. Earlier this week, officials said the tourist attraction would be closed 10 days for inspection and repairs. Worse-than-expected results prompted officials to shut down the monument long-term for proper repairs. The monument was closed to the public for nearly three years following a 2011 earthquake that compromised the obelisk's vertical stature. Since it reopened, it has had to be closed for repairs 24 times.", www.washingtonexaminer.com

"The Washington Monument likely will be closed until September, Washington, D.C.'s non-voting member of Congress said Wednesday after receiving the news during a meeting she arranged with National Park Service officials. Democratic Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton started an investigation after the National Park Service, which maintains the National Mall and Washington's famous monuments, announced last week it would close the attraction for 10 days because of a malfunctioning elevator that has broken down several times this year alone. After an investigation into the elevator's chronic problems is complete, the National Park Service plans to remodel the monument's elevator system that could require a closure lasting as long as nine months. I appreciate the thorough briefing by [the park service] and the transparency it has afforded us on the condition of the Washington Monument's elevator, Norton said.", www.washingtonexaminer.com
