Statue Of Liberty, Grand Canyon To Reopen During Shutdown

The Statue of Liberty, the Grand Canyon, and Mount Rushmore were among the national parks and landmarks set to reopen during the government shutdown after negotiations concluded late Friday.

The attractions will reopen Saturday after the states where they are located agreed to fund them through state funds or private donations.

The costs range from $61,600 each day for the Statue of Liberty to $362,700 to reopen Colorado’s parks.

The federal shutdown closed all 401 national parks and resulted in furloughs for more than 20,000 Park Service employees.
