[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
The governing body hereby finds and declares that problems of traffic control occur and traffic must be moved through or around street construction, maintenance operations, and utility work, above and below ground which requires blocking the roadway 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 safety and expeditious movement of traffic through construction and maintenance zones and to provide safety for the work force performing these operations.
The Borough of Ramsey, in the County of Bergen, State of New Jersey, does hereby adopt the current Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices hereafter known as M.U.T.C.D., except as hereby supplemented and amended, as it controls and regulates whenever construction maintenance operations of utility work obstructs the normal flow of traffic. Any person, contractor, or utility, who fails to comply with the provisions of M.U.T.C.D. while performing such work is in violation of this section.
[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
It shall be the responsibility of the person, contractor, or in the case of a public utility agreement, wishing to conduct work on, under or above the roadway to contact the Police Department in order to arrange a preconstruction meeting in order to submit plans for the safe movement of traffic during such period of construction 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 is in violation of this section.
[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
The person, contractor, or utility shall provide the Police Department with at least two emergency contact phone 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 cannot be reached, or if the emergency contact person does not respond to the call from the Police Department to correct a hazardous condition, the Borough may respond to correct such hazardous condition. The reasonable fees for such emergency service by the Borough shall be charged to the person, contractor, or utility for such condition.
[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
There shall be no construction, maintenance operations, or utility work on any roadway in the Borough before the hour of 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. This time limit may be adjusted to permit work prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. by the officer in charge of the Police Department. If it is determined by the officer in charge 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. and 4:00 p.m.
[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
Road closing and/or traffic detours shall not be permitted unless approved by the Police Department.
[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
Traffic directors shall be posted at all construction or maintenance sites when determined by the Police Department that same is necessary to provide for the safety and expeditious movement of traffic.
[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
The Police Department shall have the authority to stop work, including the removal of equipment and vehicles, stored material within the street right-of-way, back filling of open excavations and/or other related work, in order to abate any nuisance and/or safety hazard or for any violation of this section.
[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
It is to be expressly understood that no materials, vehicle or equipment are to be placed in the roadway or sidewalk or until all construction, signs, lights devices and pavement markings are installed.
[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
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. 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.
A separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day during or on which a violation occurs or continues.
[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
All ordinances or parts of ordinances which are inconsistent with the provisions of this section are hereby repealed to the extent of any such inconsistency.
[Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
This section shall take effect after approval by the Commissioner of Transportation 20 days after passage and publication as prescribed by law.
[Ord. No. 735-V § 70.101; Ord. No. 735-EE § 3; Ord. No. 735-GG § 8; Ord. No. 735II § 1; 1972 Code § 7-3.5; Ord. No. 1268 § 5]
