Update: DDOT reports that the signals are now operational. Officials said crews “installed a backup battery system” for the signals at the intersection and plan to do the same at Dupont Circle next week. DDOT is “adding backup power” to more than 100 intersections, they said.

Officials said the signals will be off for several hours while technicians upgrade the system.
Traffic control officers will be on site, DDOT said, ut warned that some drivers may want to avoid the circle at the intersection of 13th and P streets and Rhode Island and Vermont avenues to avoid delays.
