Power Out Along Lee Highway, Again

"W&OD Trail Summer Power Lines" by Tyler ZarfossPower is out along the western half of Lee Highway in Arlington for the second time this week.

As of noon today, Dominion is reporting just over 3,850 customers without power in Arlington, in the neighborhoods surrounding Lee Highway.

Numerous traffic lights are out along Lee Highway, Williamsburg Blvd and Old Dominion Drive, according to scanner traffic.

Among the neighborhoods without power is Highland Park-Overlee Knolls, according to a Twitter user.

“We have crews on the scene working the outage,” Dominion spokesman Charles Penn told ARLnow.com. “There are reports of [a] wire down. We are in the process of re-routing our circuit to get customers restored.”

No word yet on when power is expected to be restored. About 1,500 customers in the same area lost power on Tuesday.
