Washington Monument elevator broke down for 'about an hour' during re-opening weekend  3 Weeks ago

Source:   USA Today  

The elevator in the Washington Monument stopped working briefly Saturday, days after the landmark reopened after a three-year renovation project that included an update to its elevator system. 

The National Mall and Memorial Parks Twitter page said the monument's elevator was temporarily not working Saturday.

"The elevator was down for about an hour, but came back online; no evacuation via the stairs was necessary," the statement read. "We apologize to our visitors who were inconvenienced. Normal operations have resumed and tours are running on schedule."

The announcement came after a Twitter user shared earlier Saturday that they were "stuck at the top" of the monument.

"Hey @PoPville we’re stuck at the top of the Washington monument. Broken elevator," the user tweeted. "No end in sight."

The renovations to the 555-foot marble obelisk honoring America's first president also included a new security screening facility.
