Power Outage Affecting Thousands in North Arlington

(Updated at 10:55 a.m.) Dominion reports all customers now have power, following an outage in North Arlington this morning.

According to Dominion Power spokeswoman Le-Ha Anderson, approximately 3,100 customers were affected in the neighborhoods surrounding Lee Highway and Glebe Road. Anderson said a squirrel made its way into the substation equipment on N. Culpeper Street, and caused a transformer to go out.

“Crews are there patrolling and looking for ways to re-route electricity to restore power to customers,” Anderson said.

While some crews worked on re-routing power, others made repairs to the substation.

A number of traffic lights were dark along Lee Highway due to the outage, and police helped with traffic control.
