Exactly one year after being closed for renovations, Liberty Island will again be open for visitors.

The superintendent of the national monument announced that as of October 28, 2012, the 126th anniversary of its opening, the public will again be allowed access on a limited basis, although it seems as if access inside the statue will still be impacted by continuing repairs.

On October 29, 2011, repairs began to elevators, stairways, mechanical and fire suppression systems, and restrooms that will bring the monument up to modern accessibility standards at a cost of $27.25 million.
