The Rockaway Delivery Lateral is a 3-mile pipeline being constructed from a location south of the Marine Parkway Bridge interchange, under Jacob Riis Park to an offshore location in the Atlantic Ocean. The project will provide natural gas from the existing Transco pipeline in New York Bay for the Rockaways, including areas of Brooklyn and Queens.
Construction will take place during the spring and summer of 2014 and be visible from the shore during that time. This activity is temporary and includes equipment in the water. The area is safe for normal use, and there will not be any beach closures during construction.
