NEW YORK – Just in time for Independence Day, the iconic Statue of Liberty is ready to reopen to visitors.

It has been nine months since Superstorm Sandy flooded Liberty Island, one of the nation’s most popular tourist destinations.

Storm surges from the hurricane covered over half of the island and all of nearby Ellis Island.

Monument officials said the storm didn’t damage any historical areas but the docks and pathways were affected which forced them to close the site for maintenance.

Visitors will be able to head back to Liberty Island and even tour the statue’s crown July 4.

Organizers said cruises to see Lady Liberty are sold out for the big day.
