Not Diggin’ The Seagirt Stall

Dear Editor:

I saw this in the Beachcomber section in last week’s edition:

“Drivers along Seagirt Boulevard between Beach 27th and Beach 32nd streets in Far Rockaway have been putting up with narrowed lanes and rocky rides for some months. It’s all necessary as a new major sewer and drainage system goes in. Dig they must; but can they dig faster?”

I couldn’t help but laugh because it appears that at the start of the work, they dug really fast. Now, I have yet to see a worker in sight. No digging happening, fast or slow! Did they realize they were ahead of schedule or something and decide to bring things to a halt??

They were so quick to dig, demolish and depart…leaving drivers with long backups, which inevitably get worse once the regular school traffic resumes. I don’t get it.

Maybe this hiatus is part of the project? Maybe it’s an in-between thing— things are happening underground that I’m not seeing? Whatever it is, some visible progress would’ve been nice to see.

I’m just disappointed, and tired of frustrating commutes and more bad planning around this neighborhood.
