The D.C. Dept. Of Motor Vehicles Penn branch in D.C. will be opening later today due to electrical issues.

The branch, located at 3220 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, will open at noon today.

The department was reporting electrical issues in the building that were affecting computers, according to a news release.

The DMV reminded people that before and after a holiday, all locations are extremely busy and encouraged people to plan ahead or skip going to the DMV altogether.
