Report a Road

City streets are inspected and assessed annually for any needed maintenance and hazards (resurfacing and drainage). Public Works staff also inspects any received notification of hazards in streets. Call 952.960.7900 for more information or to report a street needing repair or report with SeeClickFix. Please be specific in describing the location and problem.

Issues with county roads should be reported to Hennepin County. Problems on state roads may be directed to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Speed Limits

The city maintains speed limits according to guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Transportation. Shorewood city council adopted a speed policy to respond to requests for speed limit changes and enforcement. If you notice a speed problem, you may request the Speed Awareness Display (SAD) be placed on the roadway to monitor speeds. Requests should be directed to South Lake Minnetonka Police Department. The SAD is in high demand, so your request will be put on a list and your street will be monitored when possible.

Riviera Lane, Mann Lane and Shorewood Lane

Utility Improvements: Yellowstone Trail and Lake Linden Road

Bituminous base paving is complete on Shorewood Lane and access to Shorewood Lane, including the Fire Department access, is now open.

The Contractor is continuing efforts along Riviera Lane.  The watermain connection on Riviera Lane at Yellowstone Trail is complete.  However, water service installation has caused the roadway to remain closed during working hours.  Riviera Lane residents are encouraged to park on Yellowstone Trail during working hours.

Please sign up for email updates for this project. Email will be the main form of updates to residents. If you do not have email access, contact city hall to be put on an alternative notification list.

See the latest newsletter for complete details. If you see dangerous conditions, please call 9-1-1. For all other construction issues, call Matt at 612.246.9347.

Street Maintenance Plan, City of Shorewood


  • Street Sweeping
  • Road Restrictions
  • Road Construction
  • Sealcoating

Every spring, the Public Works Department sweeps the city streets to remove sand and salt residue from the winter snow and ice control operations, and to provide safe conditions for all modes of transportation. Sweeping the sand keeps it out of the storm drains and out of lakes and wetlands. The process begins as soon as weather permits, after street weight restrictions are lifted, and continues until all of the streets have been swept at least once.

To preserve the condition of the public streets within the city from serious damage and destruction during vulnerable weather conditions, street weight restrictions are enforced according to MnDOT guidelines. View Map. For exact dates (based upon weather) please see the MnDOT website, or call the city at 952.960.7913.

Streets to receive a mill and overlay are typically determined in March-April for work to be completed in the summer. Residents on affected streets will receive a letter from the city with complete information once the contractor has been selected. Residents are encouraged to sign up for email updates, which is the main form of communication being used for summer updates.

Sealcoating is a major part of the street maintenance program in Shorewood. In the process, an application of liquid asphalt is placed on the existing street surface and immediately covered by small rocks. After leaving a few days of time for cars to drive over the surface, somewhat compacting the rocks into the surface, roads are swept of excess rock.

Before streets are sealcoated, a resident information letter is sent to those directly affected by the sealcoating. This letter gives specific dates that sealcoating of the street is expected to take place, and any specific requests by the city, such as keeping parked cars off of the street.

During the process, residents are encouraged to drive slowly and and be patient. It is a fairly quick process that extends the life of our roads, reducing cost and improving drive conditions.

Questions about the sealcoating of your road should go to Matt, 612.246.9347.
