A power outage affected about 1,350 Dominion customers along Lee Highway this morning.

The outage created some dangerous conditions where traffic lights were dark or malfunctioning along Lee Highway. Police had to direct traffic at the intersection of Lee Highway and Spout Run.

The power just came back on for most Dominion customers, but police are reporting at least one remaining problem. The green arrow at the intersection of westbound Lee Highway and I-66 is said to be not cycling, backing up traffic all the way to Kirkwood Road.

    i’m getting tired of this. i have friends who live in third world countries and they have more reliable service then this so-called “service”.

      Ain’t it the truth! On my street and the three adjoining ones, every time a butterfly sneezes funny, we have a power outage. Didn’t happen before the developers built 5 McMansions across the street from my house. They’re too large for the electrical grid, it seems – ever since 2004, even a windy day, much less a thunderstorm…out goes the power in our neighborhood.
