Suffolk Times: The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has unveiled plans for a new boat launching ramp at the site of the former Old Barge Restaurant on Old Main Road in Southold.

Proposed for the 3.2-acre property, dubbed the “Hashamomuck Marine Waterway Access Site,” are a marine pump-out station, a floating dock, two launching ramps, a bike rack, a handicapped-accessible picnic table, a canoe and kayak launching area, a floating “observation pier,” a wash-down station and other features, officials said.
