Rockaway street has sinking feeling
From DNA Info:
Part of a major roadway on the Rockaway peninsula has been closed for emergency repairs after officials declared the street unsafe.
Drivers have been detoured from Beach Channel Drive between Beach 108th and Beach 113th streets after the Department of Transportation closed it on Dec. 31, according to a spokesman.
The one-block segment along Jamaica Bay was shuttered due to "roadway conditions" but the DOT would not elaborate further and could not provide a timeline for when it would reopen again.
As a result of the closure, National Grid has had to halt its final stage of remediation work on the former gas plant, a spokeswoman said.
