Dominion has been making significant progress in restoring power to Arlington homes and businesses.

As of 10:15 this morning, only 997 Dominion customers were without power in Arlington, compared to more than 5,000 around the same time yesterday and more than 18,000 at the height of Superstorm Sandy.

Last night, Arlington officials reported that there were no dark traffic lights in the county. Six intersections were using generators to keep the signals functioning, however. There were about 20 non-functioning traffic signals the morning after the storm.

As of 5:30 last night, about 18 streets were still blocked or partially blocked by down trees, but county crews were working to clear the debris, according to a county media update.

Dominion says crews will be working on power lines and equipment at the following Arlington locations today:

  • N. Henderson Rd & N. 3rd St
  • S. 7th St & Buchanan
  • Arlington Ridge Rd & S. 28th St
  • Columbia Pike & S Buchanan St
  • N 15th St & N Vermont St
  • N Inglewood St & 17th St N
  • 1st Rd & N Irving St
