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.
