Update at 10:20 a.m. — Power has been restored to the traffic signals along Lee Highway, according to scanner traffic.

More than 1,500 Dominion customers are reported to be without power this morning in Arlington.

The outage appears to be centered around the northwest corner of Arlington, near the border with the City of Falls Church. A number of readers have been reporting power outages and dark traffic lights along Lee Highway.

Among the traffic signals without power are those at the intersections of Lee Highway and N. Harrison Street and Lee Higway and N. Sycamore Street. The Overlee pool is closed due to the power outage, according to the pool’s Twitter account.

Dominion trucks are reported to be in the area, working to restore power.
