Driving either east or west on the Rockaway peninsula, particularly in the west end, got more complicated on Wednesday afternoon when the city's Department of Design and Construction (DDC) abruptly cut off Rockaway Beach Boulevard between Beach 108 Street and Beach 116 Street for milling of the roadway in preparation for its repaving. On Thursday morning during the rush hour, the vital road was once again cut off completely even though Jonathan Gaska, the District Manager for Community Board 14, told The Wave that the contract called for maintaining one lane in each direction of the road during the work. At the same time, Beach Channel Drive, the only other east-west road in the area, was already down to one lane in each direction due to its own milling work.
