Posted: Updated:

The lights are back on in parts of Fluvanna County after crews had to shut off power for several hours Friday.

They had been doing maintenance across the county. Dominion says the project is done, and was a success. The power was back just after noon Friday, about two hours ahead of schedule.

Crews were spread out over about a two-mile radius on Route 15 just south of Palmyra. Drivers were cautioned to slow down but there were no significant traffic backups. The biggest inconvenience with all

But with the power out, one man doing some work at a Palmyra gas station says business was a bit of a challenge Friday morning.

"It's messing the pumps up and everything,” said Bo Thomas. "It keeps freezing the register up, it didn't reboot correctly, and it keeps just freezing up, just locking up.”

The power was cut so Dominion could do an equipment upgrade. The transformer in that area was about to reach its limit for how many customers it could take, but that problem is now fixed.

In all, about 260 customers lost power Friday morning.
