Speed limits in Northport, Huntington Bays for holiday

Boaters must not go faster than 5 mph between 8:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. (6/30/14)

HUNTINGTON - There is a new measure to keep Long Island boaters safe for the 4th of July.

There will be speed limits in Northport Bay and Huntington Bay during the holiday.
 
Boaters must not go faster than 5 mph between 8:30 p.m. and 11 p.m.
 
Parts of the Long Island Sound will also have speed restrictions.

The changes come after the 4th of July boating tragedy two years ago when a boat capsized off Oyster Bay Cove.
