[Ord. No. 355 § 1]
The Council hereby 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 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 safe and expeditious movement of traffic through construction and maintenance zones and to provide safety for the work force performing these operations.
The Borough of Interlaken in the County of Monmouth, State of New Jersey, does hereby adopt the current Manual on Traffic Control Devices, hereinafter 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 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. 355 § 2; Ord. No. 2010-5]
It shall be the responsibility of the person, contractor, or in the case of the public utility as required under the public utility agreement, wishing to conduct work on, under or above the roadway to contact the Police Department in order to arrange a pre-construction 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 Police Department is in violation of this section.
[Ord. No. 355 § 3]
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 conditions. The reasonable fees for such emergency service by the Borough shall be charged to the person, contractor or utility responsible for such conditions.
[Ord. No. 355 § 4]
There shall be no construction, maintenance operations, or utility work on any roadway in the Borough before the hours of 8:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. This time limit may be adjusted to permit work prior to 8:00 a.m. or after 6:00 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 8:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. would substantially delay or cause a safety or health hazard, the work shall be permitted only between 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., unless an emergency exists.

[Ord. No. 275 § 4-1; New; Ord. No. 2010-5]
