JUST IN: High winds knock out traffic lights in West End

Strong winds have resulted in a power outage in the West End affecting traffic lights and more than 2,300 Alexandria residents.

Alexandria Police are currently placing stop signs at intersections in the West End, including along Duke Street, near N. Van Dorn Street and Sanger Avenue.

“Please treat those intersections as 4-way stops,” police tweeted. “APD will place stop signs in those intersections until the lights are fixed.”

The City’s department of Transportation and Environmental Services is working on the temporary fix with police.

There are currently 2,330 residents without power spread around the West End, according to Dominion Energy.

The National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning for the area through tonight. Wind gusts could range from 40 to 60 miles per hour.
