Roads Blocked by Fallen Trees

(Updated at 8:40 a.m.) At least two local roads were blocked by fallen trees this morning.

Washington Boulevard was closed between George Mason Drive and N. Harrison Street, near Virginia Hospital Center, due to a large tree that fell onto the roadway overnight, taking power lines down with it. Authorities have warned that the closure could last “well into the day.”

In the North Rosslyn area, a tree fell across N. Scott Street at the intersection with Lee Highway. The road is closed while crews work to clear the debris, authorities said.

Last night, S. Barton Street in Arlington Village was also blocked by a fallen tree (see photo).
