UPDATED: Equipment Failure Causes Power Outage in McLean Area South of Kirby Road

Updated at 1:45 p.m. — The power outage that has affected hundreds of people in the McLean and Arlington area was the result of an equipment failure, Dominion Energy spokesperson Peggy Fox told Tysons Reporter.

Fox says the equipment has been repaired, but crews are still working to restore power to some customers, Dominion’s outage map shows.

Earlier: More than 700 people in McLean and Arlington just to the west of George Washington Memorial Parkway have lost power.

The outage has affected 738 customers from Kirby Road to the north and past Glebe Road to the south.

A Dominion Energy crew is currently assessing damage and investigating the cause of the outage. Power is expected to be restored between 1-4 p.m., according to the utility company’s power outage map.
