Work Underway to Repair Quake-Damaged Washington Monument

September 28, 2011
Work is under way on the Washington Monument  - one of the U.S. capital's best-known tourist attractions - to repair damage from the earthquake that struck the East Coast of the United States in August.  

It is a startling sight atop one of the most recognizable structures in Washington: a rope rigger, climbing out on the tip of the 169-meter-high Washington Monument.  

The rigger is making preparations for a team of engineers to rappel down the sides of the monument - to inspect damage from the 5.8 magnitude earthquake that rocked Washington in August.

Jeff Comer stopped to watch on his way to work.

"I knew they were looking at the earthquake damage, but then I saw this guy up on the monument and I have never seen anybody up there before," he said.  "It’s really cool!"
