A. 
Adoption of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways. The Borough of Alpha 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. The Borough of Alpha, 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 or 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 Borough of Alpha 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 Borough of Alpha, 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 Police Department to correct such hazardous condition, the Borough of Alpha may respond to correct the hazardous condition(s). The reasonable fees for such emergency services by the Borough of Alpha 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 Borough before the hour of 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. The officer in charge of the Borough Police Department 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. and 4:00 p.m.
E. 
Road closing. Road closing and/or traffic detours shall not be permitted unless approved by the Borough Police Department.
F. 
Traffic directors. Traffic directors shall be posted at all construction or maintenance sites when determined by the Borough Police Department that same are necessary to provide for the safe and expeditious movement of traffic.
G. 
Stop work. The Borough 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 until all construction, signs, light devices and pavement markings are installed.
I. 
Violations and penalties.
(1) 
Any person, contractor or utility who or which 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.
(2) 
A separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day during or on which violation occurs or continues.
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.
A. 
Upon the declaration of an emergency, there shall be no parking upon the streets where temporary EMERGENCY NO PARKING signs are displayed. The Chief of Police or, in his absence, the ranking police officer is 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 subsection is contingent upon the signs being erected as required by law.
[Amended 10-14-2014 by Ord. No. 2014-13]
A. 
Definition of snow/ice emergency. A snow or ice emergency for parking purposes shall be in effect when declared by the Mayor or the Mayor's designee upon the forecast of more than two inches of snow and/or ice upon paved or concrete streets in the Borough of Alpha. Said notice shall be by posting at the Borough Municipal Building, posting on the Borough's website, or by any means of electronic or telephonic media.
B. 
Parking in a snow/ice emergency.
(1) 
In the event of a snow or ice emergency, all motor vehicles shall be removed from the street(s) to driveways or other suitable off-street locations where same are available.
(2) 
In the event that any off-street parking is unavailable, any affected motor vehicles shall park on only one side of the street. If the snow emergency is declared on an even-numbered date, said parking shall only be permitted on the sides of the streets with even-numbered addresses. If the snow emergency is declared on an odd-numbered date, said parking shall only be permitted on the sides of the streets with odd-numbered addresses. If snow emergency extends beyond one day, parking shall then alternate to the opposite side of the street.
(3) 
Streets that are designated as "no parking" shall remain as "no parking."
(4) 
Streets that are designated as "no parking" on one side of the street only shall have the "no parking" rule on that side relaxed until the snow emergency is over. Vehicles on such streets shall abide by the emergency parking rules as herein referenced in this section.
C. 
Violations and penalties. Any violation of this section shall, upon conviction, be punishable by a fine not exceeding the maximum allowed by law, and said motor vehicle may be towed at the Borough's direction with the violator being responsible for all towing and storage costs.
