§ 156-7 Traffic controls for street and highway construction and maintenance operations for municipal roads.

A. 
Traffic controls for street and highway construction and maintenance operations; adoption of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways.
(1) 
The Township Committee finds and declares that problems of traffic control occur when traffic must be moved through or around street construction, maintenance operations and utility work, above or below the ground which requires blocking the street and obstructing the normal flow of traffic and that such obstructions are or can become dangerous when not properly controlled. In order to better promote the public health, safety, peace and welfare, it is necessary to establish controls and regulations directed to the safe and expeditious movement of traffic through and around construction and maintenance zones and to provide safety for the work forces performing these operations.
(2) 
The Township of Harmony in the County of Warren, State of New Jersey, does hereby adopt the current Manual on Uniform Control Devices for Streets and Highways hereafter known as the "MUTCD," except as hereby supplemented and amended, as it controls and regulates whenever construction, maintenance operations or utility work obstructs the normal flow of traffic. Any person, contractor or utility that fails to comply with the provisions of the MUTCD while performing such work is in violation of this section.
B. 
Preconstruction meeting. It shall be the responsibility of the person, contractor, or in the case of a public utility as required under the public utility agreement, section 16:25-9.2, wishing to conduct work on, under or above the street to contact the Police Department of the Township in order to arrange a preconstruction meeting and submit plans for the safe movement of traffic during such period of construction or work. Any person, contractor or utility who fails to comply with this section prior to the start of such work, or whose plans are not approved by the Police Department of the Township, is in violation of this section.
C. 
Emergency contact telephone numbers. The person, contractor or utility shall provide at least two emergency contact telephone numbers to be called in case of emergency problems at the construction or maintenance site prior to the start of any work. If, for any reason, emergency contact must be made, or if the emergency contact person does not respond to a call from the New Jersey State Police Department to correct such hazardous condition, the Township may respond to correct the hazardous condition(s). The reasonable fees for such emergency services by the Township of Harmony shall be charged to the person, contractor, or utility responsible for the condition.
D. 
Hours. There shall be no construction, maintenance, operations, or utility work on any roadway in the Township before the hour of 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. The officer in charge of the New Jersey State Police may adjust this time limit to permit work prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. If the officer in charge determines that the construction or maintenance operations prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. would substantially delay traffic or cause a safety or health hazard, the work shall then be permitted only between 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m.
E. 
Road closing. Road closing and/or traffic detours shall not be permitted unless approved by the New Jersey State Police Department.
F. 
Traffic directors. Traffic directors shall be posted at all construction or maintenance sites when determined by the New Jersey State Police Department that same is necessary to provide for the safe and expeditious movement of traffic.
G. 
Stop work. The New Jersey State Police Department shall have the authority to stop work, including the removal of equipment and vehicles, stored material within the street right-of-way, backfilling of open excavations and/or related work, in order to abate any nuisance and/or safety hazard or for any violation of this section.
H. 
Site preparation. It is to be expressly understood that no materials, vehicles or equipment are to be placed in the roadway or sidewalk or until all construction, signs, light devices and pavement markings are installed.
I. 
Violations and penalties.
(1) 
Any person, contractor or utility who commits a violation of this section shall, upon conviction thereof for a first offense, pay a fine of not less than $100 nor more than $500 and/or be imprisoned in the county jail for a term not exceeding 90 days and for a second offense, upon conviction thereof, pay a fine of not less than $250 and/or be imprisoned in the county jail for a term not exceeding 90 days.
(2) 
A separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day during or on which violation occurs or continues.

§ 156-8 Parking regulations not exclusive.

The provisions of this chapter imposing a time limit on parking shall not relieve any person of the duty to observe other, more restrictive provisions prohibiting or limiting the stopping or standing or parking of vehicles as set forth in N.J.S.A. 39:4-138, any other New Jersey Statute or as hereinafter provided.

§ 156-9 Parking prohibited during state of emergency.

A. 
Upon the declaration of an emergency, there shall be no parking upon the streets where temporary "EMERGENCY NO PARKING" signs are displayed. The New Jersey State Police are authorized to declare an emergency and to direct the posting of "EMERGENCY NO PARKING" signs when weather conditions, accidents, road construction, fire or public celebrations dictate or require avoidance of hazards or other conditions which interfere with the free flow of traffic. Notification that "EMERGENCY NO PARKING" signs are being or will be posted shall be given to the operator or owner of any vehicle which has been parked prior to the posting of the signs.
B. 
The effectiveness of this section is contingent upon the signs being erected as required by law.

§ 156-10 Temporary parking prohibition for snowplowing and removal.

A. 
Whenever snow has fallen and the accumulation is such that it covers the streets and highways, an emergency shall exist and no vehicle shall be parked on the streets or highways or portions thereof indicated. The above parking prohibitions shall remain in effect after the snow has ceased until the streets have been plowed sufficiently and to the extent that parking will not interfere with the normal flow of traffic.
B. 
Any unoccupied vehicle parked or standing in violation shall be deemed a nuisance and a menace to the safe and proper regulation of traffic and any police officer may provide for the removal of such vehicle. The owner shall pay the reasonable costs of the removal and storage which may result from such removal before regaining possession of the vehicle.
