The street lights in the 2000 block of Jamieson, which stretches from Dulaney Street to Courthouse Square have been dark at night for quite some time. I spoke to one of the City engineer’s who said the contractor that built the Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) used the wrong type of cable when stringing the lights. The outage stretches around the Dulaney Street corner down west side of Dulaney in the USPTO complex.
I was assured by the engineer that based upon the number of complaints (I’ve called several times), they are working with Dominion Virginia power to get this fixed ASAP. I mentioned that timing was of utmost importance given this week’s incident very near our neighborhood. I pressed for a timeframe and the engineer could not give one but thought it would happen very soon.
