WATCH: Time Lapse Video of the Washington Monument Restoration


 
LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — A company called EarthCam used a special camera to capture months worth of repair work on the Washington Monument, and now you can watch the time-lapse footage of the landmark’s reconstruction.

The 555-foot marble obelisk was forced to close after a 5.8-magnitude earthquake shook the area in August 2011, but it is scheduled to re-open Monday. Work crews repaired more than 150 cracks in the structure.

EarthCam’s “GigapixelCam” was trained on the monument from March 2013 to April 2014.
