Alexandria Courthouse Closed Today Due to Power Outage
A fire that occurred near the intersection of King and South Royal Streets in Old Town early this morning has damaged Dominion Virginia Power’s equipment and underground cables. In order to make repairs, Dominion Power had to shut off electricity for customers in the 300, 400 and 500 blocks of King Street and the 100 block of Pitt Street. This power outage has closed the Alexandria Courthouse today, and is also expected to affect several businesses located there, including Hotel Monaco. Alexandria City Hall is not affected and is open today.
Crews are on the scene and will be working throughout the day to make repairs. For more information, contact Dominion Virginia Power directly at 1.866.DOM.HELP (866.366.4357).
