Washington Monument

Recommended Posts

Maybe the heat had a factor into the cable breaking like last time?

2nd time in I believe 30 days?

Last time, it's believed that increased air conditioning use caused a voltage drop which then tripped a circuit breaker.
I'm actually quite surprised with all this heat that it seems only the Monument has had some problems(and or indirect effect since the heat causes the AC use to be high).... Maybe if there wasn't a height restriction in the district we would be seeing more issues since there are really no other tall buildings in DC?

The National Park Service has announced that the Washington Monument will not in fact reopen during September but rather will remain closed indefinitely. They have not identified what specifically is causing the elevator problems. It has been closed since August 17.

They hope to have more information in the next couple of weeks. The Monument is unlikely to reopen until the elevator has been "modernized."
