The Statue of Liberty will be closing for year long renovations in October. U.S. Secretary Ken Salazar made the announcement regarding the $27.25 million in renovations.  The updates and work will only hold up ”Lady Liberty” herself from any commitments.  Liberty Island will remain open, but the statue itself will be tied up.  However, her exterior will still be viewable from afar throughout the renovations.

The monument will close on October 28th after its 125th anniversary of its dedication, according to the National Park Service, who manages the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island.  Meanwhile, Liberty Island will remain open throughout.

For more details on the specific renovations, go to the  Washington Post.
