The National Park Service announced this week that the $27.25 million renovation project, limited to the monument itself, will make the interior safer and more accessible by adding stairways and upgrading existing facilities.

Liberty Island will remain open and the 22-story statue—built in the 1880s and a gift from France—will be mostly unobstructed from view. (Photo credit: Andie Diemer)
