Pepco maintenance workers are on the way to fix what appears to be a broken wire affecting some businesses in Bethesda’s Woodmont Triangle.
Bethesda Urban Partnership workers closed off Fairmont Avenue at the corner of Norfolk Avenue on Thursday afternoon after Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Officials cleared the area.
A BUP worker said the BlackFinn American Saloon (4901 Fairmont Ave.) was one of the properties to lose power and it hasn’t been the first time. They reported power problems in the summer, similar to issues other Woodmont Triangle restaurants faced. In September, the owner of Olazzo (7921 Norfolk Ave.) told MyMCMedia he lost between $50,000 and $75,000 because of random power outages.
Fairmont Avenue remains blocked off near Veterans Park.
