Reduced Speed in Water Mill

The New York State Department of Transportation is planning to reduce the speed limit on Montauk Highway between Flying Point Road and Head of Pond Road in Water Mill, according to Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. The speed limit will go from 45 miles per hour to 40 m.p.h. heading toward the hamlet’s downtown from the west. 

The D.O.T. has installed “reduced speed limit ahead” signs on the eastbound and westbound sides of the road to alert drivers to slow down to 30 m.p.h. as they enter downtown. The department has also installed larger speed limit signs to enhance visibility and new “pedestrian ahead” warning signs near the two crosswalks between Halsey Lane and Proprietors Road.
