A tree that fell near Route 50 and George Mason Drive has knocked out power and traffic lights in the area.

The tree toppled over onto power lines and a transformer before noon today during heavy rainfall, according to scanner traffic.

Traffic signals were reported to be dark at the intersections of Route 50 and George Mason Drive, and Route 50 and Fillmore Street. Police have set up cones at the intersections to direct traffic.

Dominion’s power outage map reports 171 customers without power in the area.
