National Grid Brooklyn-Queens Interconnect

AKRF prepared the environmental review materials for a new gas pipeline in the Rockaways and Brooklyn on behalf of National Grid to reinforce existing natural gas transmission and distribution systems and provide for projected increases in energy demand. Two parallel 12- and 26-inch natural gas mains were installed between Beach 169th Street on the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens and Avenue U in Brooklyn. Our environmental analysis addressed land use, open space, cultural resources, hazardous materials, coastal zone consistency, construction, and natural resources. AKRF also prepared maintenance and protection of traffic plans and coordinated with the New York City Department of Transportation on the need for construction permits in the Marine Park section of Brooklyn.
