The Washington Monument has reopened after it had experienced issues with the elevator controls earlier on Saturday.

The Monument was closed for about three hours.

The system that allows park rangers to access the elevator controls lost power, according to the Park Service.

Just two days after the Monument reopened for visitors on Sept. 19, the elevator stopped working for about an hour.
