Gas Leak Slows Traffic on RBB

Photo by Susan Locke Photo by Susan Locke The smell of gas permeated the air Tuesday afternoon on Rockaway Beach Boulevard.

The call came into the FDNY at 2:41 p.m. reporting a gas odor at Rockaway Beach Boulevard near Beach 115th Street. Twenty-five firefighters in five units responded.

Motorists on the boulevard waited and made their way slowly around the fire trucks while the firefighters located the gas leak and notified National Grid, which shut off the service at the street. The air cleared and traffic resumed normally at 3:33 p.m.
