Power outage in SW Washington

A power outage in the area of Seventh Street and Independence Avenue SW is affecting about 100 Pepco customers and some traffic signals.

Officials estimate that power may not be restored until 3 p.m., so drivers, pedestrians and cyclists should all use caution in navigating streets in the vicinity. The District Department of Transportation says drivers should treat intersections with nonfunctioning signals as four-way stops.
