Rush hour traffic to the Lincoln Tunnel is gridlocked in midtown Manhattan in a September 2020 file photo. A plan to reduced congestion by charging a toll to drive south of 60th Street was opposed by Gov. Phil Murphy, who demanded a full environmental impact study be conducted.
Gov. Phil Murphy on Thursday said New York’s congestion pricing plan needs a full environmental impact statement, a step that could significantly delay the plan to tax vehicles driving into midtown and lower Manhattan.
In a letter to U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg obtained by NJ Advance Media, Murphy said the Federal Highway Administration should find that the proposal by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority was “significant” enough to require a full environmental study. FHWA approval is required before the project can move forward.
