Title 27 - HIGHWAYS
Section 27:14-3 - Surveys and plans; approval by freeholders and commissioner
27:14-3. Surveys and plans; approval by freeholders and commissioner
After the passage of the resolution contemplated by section 27:14-2 of this title the board of chosen freeholders shall cause a survey of the road to be made and plans, cross sections and specifications of the work to be done thereon to be prepared. The survey shall indicate the width and length of the road, and shall show how much of it may be improved by deviation from the then existing lines, but no survey shall be commenced until the written consent of the commissioner shall have been first obtained.
When the plans, cross sections and specifications shall have been prepared, they shall be submitted to the board of chosen freeholders for approval or rejection. If approved by the board they shall then be submitted to the commissioner, who shall, before approving them, ascertain the natural character of the soil upon which the road is proposed to be constructed and all other facts he may deem important.
If the commissioner approves the plans, cross sections and specifications, their scope and detail, and is satisfied as to the advisability of the improvement of the road as contemplated, and that the state's share of the cost of the construction of the road together with its share of the cost of the construction of all other roads or sections of roads under the plans and specifications previously approved by him, will not exceed the amount available for the purpose he shall indorse his approval on the plans, cross sections and specifications. Otherwise he shall reject them.
