The United States National Park Service released "helmet-cam" video of workers topping off the scaffolding around the Washington Monument on Monday.

The monument, which has been closed since August 23, 2011 when a 5.8-magnitude tremor shook the nation's capital, is expected to remain shut to the public until 2014 as crew make repairs.

The earthquake left the monument with stresses and cracks throughout its entire structure.
