Power Outage in Ballston

A power outage hit Ballston and a large swath of North Arlington this morning. More than 2,500 Dominion customers were without power in Arlington as of 11:20 p.m., according to the company’s web site.

Later, a Dominion rep told the Washington Post that as many as 6,500 customers lost power at one point. The outage was caused when a private contractor hit a power line, the Post reported.

Police directed traffic at at least two intersections in Ballston where traffic lights went dark. Generator trucks were brought in to power lights at certain intersections.

The outage affected the area around Fairfax Drive between Glebe Road and Quincy Street, near the Ballston Metro station, as well as parts of Glen Carlyn and the area around Bluemont Park, the county reports.
