Update at 3:15 p.m. — Power has been restored to all but a handful of Dominion customers in Arlington. Asked about the outages last night and today, a Dominion spokesman told ARLnow.com: “We experienced equipment failure resulting in a failed connector and wire falling into another line. 5,054 customers were restored in increments up to 2 hours and 23 minutes. The remaining 1,680 customers were restored after 6 hours and 44 minutes.”
Update at 11:10 a.m. — Another power outage has been reported near Crystal City. In all, about 500 Dominion customers are currently without power, according to the utility company’s website.
Police are helping with traffic control at several intersections in the Ballston area due to a power outage.
The outage was first reported just before 9 a.m. and follows last night’s widespread outage along the Lee Highway corridor.
More than 200 customers are affected by this morning’s outage, according to Dominion’s power outage map. Washington-Lee High School is just outside the area marked as without power.
Among the affected traffic signals are those at the busy intersection of Washington Blvd and Glebe Road, according to scanner traffic.
Heard a boom and now there's no power near W&L. Come on Thursday! You can do it! @ARLnowDOTcom
