Washington Monument Reopens After Three Years

The Washington Monument reopened Monday.  The 130-year-old monument closed in 2011 after an earthquake left 150 cracks.

It happened on August 23, 2011.  It was a 5.8-magnitude earthquake.  The full restoration cost $15 million and half of the cost was covered by David Rubenstein.

See the time-lapse of the repairs.
