Post Earthquake Repairs

The Washington Monument has been closed to the public since the earthquake in August 2011, and the park service says that it will stay closed until needed repairs are complete. They recently erected scaffolding that rises almost to the level of the initial construction that halted in the mid-1850's, close to 150 feet, apparently to work on the facing stones near the base of the obelisk.

I noticed the scaffolding about a week ago. I didn't see any press releases that describe the work that is being done and there isn't anything specific on the park service's Washington Monument website, but I'm pretty sure that if you took the time to visit the monument, there would be somebody there to answer questions about it. I didn't have time this morning, I had just enough time to take the photo.
