More Natural Gas Pipe Info, because you want more Natural Gas Pipe Info (I know what boys like. I know what guys want).

unnamedA reader chimed in with more info regarding those natural gas pipes on LB Blvd (see – Question: Ya know what this is?).

“Anthony:  The picture of the yellow pipes at LB Blvd between Shore Road and the Boardwalk show above the ground support equipment for a below ground 36 inch diameter natural gas pipeline.  The pipeline originates in New Jersey and comes ashore at LB Blvd.  It runs through Island Park under Austin Blvd.  I think it serves the former LILCO power plants in IP.  After that I have no idea where it goes or ends.

30-40 years ago when it was built it was supposed to run under Long Beach Road through the Village of Island Park.  An irate housewife led opposition and it was moved to Austin Blvd.  Safety was the concern.

There is also an underwater fiber optic cable under Monroe Blvd that runs from Monroe and the Boardwalk to France.  I lived there when it was installed 15-20 years ago.”

  1. The ship that laid that cable in 2001 was the “Fresnel”.

    The cable’s terminal is inside a building located on Keyspan’s property at Barrett Island, just outside of the electric plant’s entrance.
