Arlington, VA

The week-and-a-half long saga of the damaged Verizon cables has finally come to a close.

Verizon technicians had to painstakingly splice back together thousands of copper lines in three large cables that were damaged by a contractor taking a soil sample in Rocky Run Park (1109 N. Barton St.). Hundreds of Verizon customers in the Clarendon and Courthouse area lost their phone and DSL internet service as a result of the cut cables.

As of 6:30 last night, service was restored to all customers, according to Verizon spokesman Harry Mitchell.
