MTA Gets Green Light from Biden Administration on Manhattan Tolling Plan

The Federal Highway Administration gave the green light to the MTA’s plan to toll drivers entering Manhattan below 60th Street.

The agency told the MTA on Tuesday that it can put the tolling plan through an environmental assessment, which is a less intense and streamlined study compared to a full review.

This environmental assessment will require the MTA to analyze traffic volumes and air quality impacts of the proposed tolling program.

The acting federal highway administrator called the proposed toll plan, an “important and precedent-setting project.”
