After an excavation is commenced, the excavator shall proceed with diligence, expedite all work covered by the excavation permit, promptly complete the work and restore the street and any traffic-control devices to their original condition, or as near as may be, so as not to obstruct the public place or travel more than is reasonably necessary. Adverse weather conditions shall be cause for reasonable delay in prompt completion of work.
When traffic conditions, the safety or convenience of the traveling public or the public interest require that the excavation work be performed as emergency work, the City may include the requirement at the time the permit is granted that a crew and adequate facilities be employed by the excavator twenty four (24) hours a day so that the excavation work may be completed as soon as possible.
