Power Outage in North Arlington

by ARLnow.com | September 28, 2010 at 12:25 pm | 952 views | 2 Comments

Nearly 3,500 Dominion customers in North Arlington are without power this afternoon. The outage was possibly caused by a branch that hit a power line and caused a transformer to catch fire.

Police report that traffic lights on Glebe Road are out from I-66 near Ballston to Lee Highway. The outage at the busy Lee Highway and North Glebe Road intersection has the potential for a significant traffic impact.

Initial reports suggest other traffic lights may also be out on Lee Highway.

Several tripped alarms and stuck elevators have been reported in the area, likely a result of the outage.

Update at 1:40 p.m. — Power has been restored to most Dominion customers.

    Interesting, I just got the Arlington Alert email and it just said traffic lights out on Lee Highway from Harrison to Glebe. No mention of further down on Glebe.
