WETHERSFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

A system outage at the Department of Motor Vehicles affected a number of services on Wednesday afternoon.

The DMV said the network-wide outage affected drivers' licenses, internet access and other online functions.

However. DMV communicators director Bill Seymour said all systems were functioning as of 1:15 p.m. He said the outage lasted a total of 20 minutes.

It was the result of a digging project in Wethersfield.

This came as the DMV planned office closures between Aug. 11 and 15 to update its computer system.
