Water Main Break Re-Routs RBB
|A water main break in the Arverne Urban Renewal Area Tuesday morning sent hundreds of gallons of water streaming out over Rockaway Beach Boulevard and traffic pouring on to Beach Channel Drive. Police officers rerouted traffic – blocking off RBB between Beach 73 Street and Beach 71 Street – for several hours.
Eastbound motorists were directed north to Beach Channel Drive, but the traffic lights on Rockaway Freeway clogged Beach 73 Street bringing traffic to a crawl.
