Blown Transformer Causes Traffic Problems in Rosslyn

Update at 11:05 a.m. — We’re hearing that some traffic lights are coming back online in the area.

Update at 11:30 a.m. — Road closures are being lifted. Dominion spokesperson Le-Ha Anderson says power has been restored to most customers in Rosslyn.

“While we investigate the root cause of the outage, we are rerouting electricity to restore as many customers as possible,” Anderson said. “As of 11:01, we were able to get the lights back on for all but 123 customers.”

Update at 2:00 p.m. — Dominion estimates that service won’t be fully restored until midnight tonight, after underground repairs are completed. Buildings in the 1500 blocks of Clarendon and Wilson Boulevard are still without power, we’re told.

A blown underground transformer in the area of 1515 Clarendon Boulevard has caused traffic lights to go dark and about 1,000 Dominion customers to lose power in the Rosslyn area.

Traffic lights are reportedly out across most of North Lynn Street, and police are now directing traffic in the area. Officers have requested generators for the lights, saying it “could be hours” until power is restored.

A traffic light outage has also been reported at Wilson Boulevard and North Pierce Street, near the fire station, as well as other intersections between Rosslyn and Courthouse.

Police are in the process of shutting down Fort Myer Drive at Lee Highway, as well as most of Nash Street. Traffic coming across the Key Bridge into Arlington will have to head west on Lee Highway, get off at North Scott Street, and backtrack down Wilson Boulevard to get to Rosslyn.

There’s no reliable word yet on when power might be restored.
