A downed tree that’s resting on power lines along Arlington Ridge Road near S. Lang Street has prompted a temporary road closure.

Arlington Ridge Road is currently blocked between 23rd Street S. and S. Glebe Road while crews evaluate the situation and prepare to remove the tree.

Scanner reports suggest that the tree fell just as a bus of senior citizens was driving by. The bus  remained on the scene but no significant damage nor injuries were reported.
