Arverne – Beach 88th/94th Street Outfall Project

The New York City Department of Design and Construction (NYCDDC), on behalf of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP), is proposing the Beach 88th/94th Street Infrastructure Improvements project. The project area is within Queens Community Board 14 and the Hammels (Arverne) section of Far Rockaway, Queens, a largely residential community with some commercial uses fronting Rockaway Freeway and Beach Channel Drive. The proposed action involves the construction of a new stormwater outfall and the installation of new stormwater collection sewers, relocation of water mains, upgrade of sanitary sewer lines, the reconstruction of affected streets, and restoration of wetland areas that will enhance public access and recreation along the Jamaica Bay waterfront.
