JUST IN: Downed Lines Cause Power Outage, Traffic Delays Near Wolf Trap

A power outage is impacting hundreds of Dominion Energy customers between Wolf Trap and Leesburg Pike.

Dominion’s power outage map says that 575 customers are affected by the outage, which spans from the McLean Bible Church down past the Dulles Toll Road. Dominion expects power to be returned sometime between 7-10 p.m.

Fairfax County put out a traffic advisory around 3:40 p.m. warning people to expect delays at Leesburg Pike and Trap Road. Police tweeted that Leesburg Pike is currently closed in both directions.

Downed lines from a broken pole are behind the road closure and power outage.
