   the flow of traffic

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1. 1. The port authority of New York shall conduct a study to
 explore the alignment of the Outerbridge Crossing in  order  to  examine
 the  feasibility  of physically widening such bridge, which would result
 in an increase in the flow of traffic.
   2. Such study shall examine the alignment of the Outerbridge Crossing,
 with attention to the surrounding private property in the area in  which
 the  bridge  is located and to determine which of those properties would
 need to be acquired by the port authority of New York in order to  effi-
 ciently  expand the bridge to accomplish the goal of increasing the flow
 of traffic.
   3. Prior to the expiration of its existing study into the  Outerbridge
 Crossing,  the  port  authority  of New York shall issue a report of its
 findings on the alignment of the Outerbridge Crossing to  the  governor,
 the temporary president of the senate and the speaker of the assembly of
 the  state  of  New York, as well as to the governor of the state of New
 Jersey. Such report shall include, but not be limited to, the following:
   (a) actions that can be implemented by the port authority immediately,
 a plan of action for such implementation, and the estimated cost of  the
 implementation plan; and
   (b)  which, if any, surrounding property would need to be acquired and
 the estimated cost of acquiring such property.
   § 2. This act shall take effect upon the enactment  into  law  by  the
 state  of New Jersey of legislation having an identical effect with this
