AN ACT TO AUTHORIZE THE UNION COUNTY SHERIFF TO TEMPORARILY CLOSE TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE DUE TO DANGEROUS ROADWAY CONDITIONS.
The following applies to Union County only.
Enacts new GS 162-27 allowing the sheriff to temporarily close any portion of the state transportation infrastructure if necessary to exclude public travel because of a dangerous road condition that poses an immediate visible threat to public safety. Requires notification to the Department of Transportation before the closure. Prohibits delegating responsibility for making the final decision to close state transportation infrastructure, but allows the sheriff to appoint a deputy to assist in performing the investigation of the road condition and temporary closure. Requires keeping a list of schools, colleges, universities, or providers of public transportation operating in the county that requests closure notifications and requires providing such notification. Requires traffic signs and traffic control devices placed on a highway to conform to the Uniform manual.
Effective October 1, 2019.
