The Statue of Liberty will reopen by July 4, officials said Tuesday.

The landmark has been closed to visitors since Hurricane Sandy struck in 2011.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and Senator Charles E. Schumer announced the plan three weeks after Mr. Salazar toured Liberty Island in New York Harbor, The New York Times reported.

The statue was not harmed by the storm, but several structures on the island were ruined,the Times reported.
