Power Outage in South Reston

by RestonNow.com May 4, 2017 at 9:43 am 2 Comments

For the second time this week, a significant portion of Reston is without power.

Just after 9 a.m., between 700 to 1,000 customers lost power in South Reston.

The outage area mostly stretched along the eastern side of Reston Parkway, from just north of Hunters Woods Elementary to just north of the Dulles Toll Road around Sunset Hills Road.

Dominion Power’s website indicates a crew has been dispatched, and the cause of the outage is still under investigation.

It was estimated power would be restored to these customers between 11 a.m. and noon today.

See a map of the outage area on Dominion’s website.

On Tuesday, more than 1,700 lost power in the same area along Reston Parkway.

    Verizon and comcast may also be down.

    Check by 1pm EST, calling phone support appears pointless . Maybe sign up for outage alerts.

    Is this blob moving eastward?

    As I recall, these outages were not uncommon during Reston’s last free-fire frenzy of development. I bet it is yet another benefit of heavy construction, accidental or coordinated.
