3. Any person may apply to the department of transportation to sponsor a drunk driving victim memorial sign in memory of an immediate family member who died as a result of a motor vehicle accident caused by a person who was shown to have been operating a motor vehicle in violation of section 577.010 or 577.012 or was committing an intoxication-related traffic offense at the time of the accident. Upon the request of an immediate family member of the deceased victim involved in a drunk driving accident, the department shall place a sign in accordance with this section. A person who is not a member of the immediate family may also submit a request to have a sign placed under this section if that person also submits the written consent of an immediate family member. The department shall charge the sponsoring party a fee to cover the department's cost in designing, constructing, placing, and maintaining that sign, and the department's costs in administering this section.

7. The department shall adopt rules and regulations to implement and administer the provisions of this section. Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028. This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2009, shall be invalid and void.

Project plans to be provided to owners of utility facilities,content--preliminary plan of adjustment, contents--utilitycoordination meeting required, when.

227.554. 1. Upon completion of the initial design of the construction project, the commission shall provide at least one set of project plans to each owner of a utility facility identified under section 227.553.

2. The project plans shall show those portions of the construction project upon which the owner's utility facilities are located and where the utility facilities of other owners are located in relation to work required for the project. The commission shall also provide with the project plans a description of any right-of-way still to be purchased and the anticipated letting date of the project.

Relocation plan, contents--review of plan--meeting forcoordination of work required--notification of approval of plan.

227.555. 1. Within one hundred twenty days of receiving written notice of approval of the utility plan of adjustment from the commission, the owner shall provide the commission with a relocation plan. The one hundred twenty-day clock stops after the relocation plan is submitted by the owner. If, after timely submission of the relocation plan by the owner, revisions or alterations are necessary for any reason, or if the original relocation plan was incomplete due to information needed from other parties, the one hundred twenty-day clock begins to run again when the needed information is received back by the owner.

2. The relocation plan shall include a narrative description of work that will be done in relocating the owner's utility facilities and whether the work or a portion of the work must be coordinated with or is contingent upon work being performed by another utility facility owner or the contractor to the commission. The relocation plan shall list, if applicable, any anticipated issues or problems related to the acquisition of right-of-way. The relocation plan shall, if applicable, detail the anticipated number of days to acquire additional easements not provided within the new highway right-of-way. The relocation plan shall also give estimates as to the time needed to obtain any necessary customer approvals for cut-over dates, if necessary. The relocation plan shall state when the work will be started and the length of time in days estimated to complete the work. It is permissible for an owner to state in a relocation plan that the owner's work will be completed within a stated number of days from the date that a contractor or another owner completes certain identified work which interferes with the owner's work. The relocation plan shall identify any contingencies, if applicable, that may impact the anticipated start of relocation. The relocation plan shall also describe whether the plan is incomplete due to:

(1) Other owners failing to coordinate their plans with the owner submitting the plan;

(2) Other owners failing to provide information necessary to submit a complete relocation plan;

(3) The commission failing to provide any information required by subsection 2 of section 227.554; or

(4) Any other reason explained in the plan regarding the circumstances and cause of the plan being incomplete.

3. The commission shall review the relocation plan to ensure compatibility with permit requirements, the project plan, and the anticipated letting date and notice to proceed for the project. If utility relocation is dependent upon or must be coordinated with work to be completed by the contractor, the relocation plan shall assure timely completion of the project. If the relocation plan is acceptable to the commission, the commission shall notify the owner in writing within thirty days of receiving the plan. If the relocation plan submitted by the owner is not compatible, reasonable, or does not allow timely completion of the project, the commission shall advise the owner in writing as soon as practicable, but not later than thirty days after receiving the relocation plan. The commission shall specify in the notice which parts of the relocation plan it finds objectionable, and the reasons for its conclusions. The owner shall submit a revised relocation plan within thirty calendar days after receipt of notice by the commission that the relocation plan is not acceptable. The commission shall review the revised relocation plan, and if the relocation plan is still not acceptable, the commission shall provide a relocation plan to the owner. The owner shall not be bound by the terms of the commission's relocation plan if such relocation plan:

(1) Requires the payment of overtime to employees to expedite the construction project; or

(2) Requires the owner to comply with a deadline which is not feasible due, in whole or in part, to one or more factors outside the control of the owner.

4. If the owner informs the commission, in writing, or the commission determines that the owner's relocation work is dependent upon or must be coordinated with work being performed by the commission's contractor, the commission shall convene a meeting of the contractor and the one or more owners whose relocation work is dependent upon or must be coordinated with the contractor's work. Such meeting shall be held after the letting date at which bids were received for the construction project, but prior to the issuance of a notice to proceed to the commission's contractor. After such meeting, and before or concurrent with the issuance of a notice to proceed, the commission shall provide a schedule for the relocation of utilities to the owner and the commission's contractor. If the approved relocation plan, or a portion of such plan, is dependent upon or must be coordinated with work to be performed by the contractor, the contractor shall notify the commission of its best estimate of the date that all construction necessary for the relocation of utilities will be completed, at least fourteen days prior to such date. If such completion date is delayed due to weather or other causes, the contractor shall immediately notify the commission of the delay and the revised expected completion date. The contractor shall give a second notice to the commission five days prior to the date work will be completed as necessary for relocation work to begin. It shall be the responsibility of the commission to notify the owner or owners of the contractor's estimated completion dates. The contractor may also notify the owner directly of such dates, if the contractor has received information from the owner under subsection 7 of this section, but such notice shall not relieve the commission of its obligation to notify the owner. If the contractor's delay causes additional delay by the owner, the commission and the owner shall negotiate in good faith to determine the new completion date.

5. (1) The commission shall notify the owner in writing not less than thirty days before the owner is required to begin relocation provided for in the approved relocation plan. Unless the owner has encountered excusable delay as set forth in subsection 4 of section 227.558, the owner shall complete its work within the time frame described in the relocation plan, and shall complete all work that can be done prior to construction before the issuance of the notice to proceed, including work that may need to be coordinated with other utility owners but is not dependent on the work of the contractor.

(2) The notice required by subdivision (1) of this subsection shall include the name, address, telephone number, facsimile number, and electronic mail address of the commission's contractor and any subcontractors performing work on the construction project. Such information shall also include the name and title of an individual employed by the contractor or subcontractor having primary responsibility for the construction project. Within fifteen days of receiving notice, the owner shall provide to the commission and the commission's contractor the name, address, telephone number, facsimile number, and electronic mail address of the employee of the owner who is responsible for implementation of the owner's relocation plan and the same information for any utility contractor to the owner for purposes of carrying out the relocation plan.

6. The owner shall notify the commission when relocation work has started. During the course of the relocation work, the commission may require owners to provide progress reports until its relocation is completed. The owner shall notify the commission when all relocation work is complete. All notices of either starting or completion of relocation work and all monthly progress reports shall be provided within five days after such dates.

2. Nothing in sections 227.551 to 227.559 shall be construed to relieve a contractor from making notice of excavation as required by sections 319.010 to 319.050 of the underground facility safety and damage prevention act, or complying with the requirements of sections 319.075 to 319.090 of the overhead power line safety act, except to the extent that any provisions of sections 227.551 to 227.559 require additional obligations beyond those set forth in sections 319.011 to 319.050 or sections 319.075 to 319.090, in which case the requirements of sections 227.551 to 227.559 shall prevail.

(2) Labor strikes or shortages;

(3) Terrorist attacks, riots, civil unrest, or criminal sabotage;

(4) Acts of God, or extreme weather events;

(2) After a report has been provided to a Missouri law enforcement agency, such agency is authorized to issue a traffic citation for failure to pay the required toll;

(3) The law enforcement agency responsible for the issuance of a traffic citation for failure to pay a toll is responsible for prosecution of such citation.

The provisions of this section shall not prohibit a law enforcement officer from issuing a citation for a violation of any other traffic laws and regulations on the project.
