Some District traffic lights flashing

Twenty-five intersections in Northwest, Southwest and Southeast DC are flashing due to an equipment problem as we head into the evening commute, District officials said.

The failures are due to a blown transformer that contractors are looking into, and traffic officers are on their way to some of the intersections.

In the absence of traffic control officers, drivers are cautioned to treat flashing lights as four-way stop signs, even if they're on a major thoroughfare intersecting with a smaller street.

The outages are tying up traffic and delaying some bus routes.

Update: According to DDOT, here are the affected intersections:

Penn. Ave and Minnesota Ave SE

14th and Const. Ave NW

GA and Randolph St NW

12th St and K street NW
