Department of Transportation proposing to readopt rules on traffic regulations and standards for traffic control devices

(Trenton) The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) proposes to readopt with amendments N.J.A.C. 16:27, the rule governing the Department's regulations on traffic regulations and standards for traffic control devices.   The rule establishes NJDOT's policies and procedures concerning the regulation of traffic, particularly regarding the design, installation and inspection of traffic control devices.   The amendments reflect current NJDOT policies and practices and clarify the scope and requirements of the application process.   

The amendments also provide municipal and county governments and state transportation authorities greater autonomy to for the design, installation and inspection of traffic control devices.   The proposal contains several new measures which will allow an applicant to proceed with design, installation and inspection of these traffic control devices without unnecessary delays or duplicative NJDOT review.

The proposed rule appears in the February 21, 2006 issue of the New Jersey Register .   The public has until April 22, 2006 to comment on the proposal.   Persons wishing to comment on the proposal must provide their comments in writing to Miriam Crum, Administrative Practice Officer, NJ Department of Transportation, 1035 Parkway Avenue, P.O. Box 600, Trenton, NJ   08625-0600.   Fax:   (609) 530-3841.   Comments must be postmarked or faxed on or before April 22, 2006, which is the close of the 60-day public comment period.

Comments submitted to NJDOT on the proposed rulemaking are public records and are available for public inspection by prior appointment during normal NJDOT business hours.
