Outages at Honeygo and , Beaconsfield and White Marsh Boulevard began at about 8:30 a.m. and caused major delays, requiring police to direct traffic through intersections. Baltimore Gas and Electric Company workers were on the scene as of 9:10 a.m. and power was restored before 10 a.m., the officer said.

Maryland State Highway Administration spokesman Charlie Gischler confirmed that signals had been flashing either red or yellow until they were reset following the power outage. By 10 a.m., they were functioning normally, Gischler said.

Gischler encouraged motorists to dial 511 on a hands-free device for free traveler information from the SHA the next time they encounter traffic delays on state roads.
