The New York Traffic Mitigation Commission today released five proposals aimed at mitigating traffic in Manhattan’s central business district today.

The 17-member commission must choose one of the plans by the end of the month to submit to the Legislature, governor, mayor, and City Council. Four of the five plans, which were released as part of a report, would generate hundreds of millions of dollars annually which proponents expect would be used to help finance the state Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s capital plan. Commission members said that discussions on the mechanism that would direct money toward transit projects, and whether or not bonding would be involved, are in early stages.
