A. 
The Council hereby finds and declares that problems of traffic control occur when traffic must be moved through or around road or street construction, maintenance operations and utility work above or 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 safe and expeditious movement of traffic through construction and maintenance zones and to provide safety for the work forces performing these operations. The Township of Pequannock in the County of Morris, State of New Jersey, does hereby adopt the current Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, 1988 Edition, hereafter known as "M.U.T.C.D.", 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 which fails to comply with the provisions of M.U.T.C.D. while performing such work is in violation of this section.
B. 
Preconstruction meeting. It shall be the responsibility of the person or contractor, or in the case of a public utility wishing to conduct work on, under or above the roadway, to contact the Traffic Bureau of the Pequannock Township Police Department in order to arrange a preconstruction meeting to 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 Traffic Bureau of the Pequannock Township Police Department is in violation of this section. Public utilities conducting routine maintenance work need not comply with the preconstruction meeting requirement.
C. 
Emergency contact telephone numbers. The person, contractor or utility shall provide the Traffic Bureau 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 contacts cannot be reached or if the emergency contact person does not respond to a call from the Police Department to correct a hazardous condition, the Township may respond to correct such hazardous condition. The reasonable fees for such emergency services by the Township shall be charged to the person, contractor or utility responsible for such condition.
D. 
Heavily traveled roads. The Township of Pequannock Police Department Traffic Bureau shall maintain a list of all roads determined to be heavily traveled for the purpose of this chapter. Such determination shall be made by the Police Department, Traffic Bureau, and shall be binding. Said list may be amended from time to time as conditions warrant to include roads which become heavily traveled due to temporary conditions or events. This list shall be available for inspection during normal business hours, and a copy shall be provided upon request of any party.
E. 
Time limits. There shall be no construction, maintenance operations or utility work under, on or above any heavily traveled roadway in the Township 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 Traffic Bureau of the Pequannock Township Police Department. If it is determined by the officer in charge of the Traffic Bureau that the construction or maintenance operations prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. on any roadway would substantially delay traffic or cause a safety or health hazard, the work shall then be permitted only between 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
F. 
Road closings and detours. Road closings and/or traffic detours shall not be permitted unless approved by the Pequannock Police Traffic Bureau.
G. 
Traffic directors. Traffic directors shall be posted at all construction or maintenance sites when determined by the Pequannock Township Police Traffic Bureau that same is necessary to provide for the safety and expeditious movement of traffic. Traffic directors shall be qualified personnel as determined by the Chief of Police.
H. 
Stop-work order. The Traffic Bureau of the Pequannock Township 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 other related work, in order to abate any nuisance, traffic delay and/or safety hazard or for any violation of this section.
I. 
Emergency repair work. In case of emergency repair work where construction maintenance operations or emergency utility work must be performed that will obstruct, interfere or detour traffic on any roadway in the Township, the person, contractor or utility performing such operation shall notify the Pequannock Police Department of such emergency operation. The person, contractor or utility shall disclose the nature of the emergency, location, and hours of operation. All emergency construction and maintenance operations shall be performed with full regard to safety and to keep traffic interference to an absolute minimum. During such emergency repair work, the person, contractor or utility shall comply with the provisions of the M.U.T.C.D. while performing such emergency repair work.
J. 
Violations and penalties. Any person, contractor or utility who commits a violation of this chapter 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; and for a third or subsequent conviction pay a fine of not less than $500 and/or be imprisoned in the county jail for a term not exceeding 90 days.
