New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority released a 750 million dollar plan on April 29, 2003 to build a Fulton Street Transit Center in lower Manhattan that would be fully funded with federal recovery money approved after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The transit center, which would expand the subway station interconnections at Fulton Street to seven from four and improve the efficiency of the operations there, is one of the three priorities for federal recovery money according to the Governor George E. Pataki. The governor has requested that the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Federal Transit Administration approve between 2.55 billion dollars and 2.85 billion dollars for three metropolitan transportation projects.
