Tree Inspectors Taking Inventory of Public Spaces
You might notice a vehicle driving through your street, stopping, and measuring trees in the public right of way. City of Shorewood has contracted with a tree service to do a tree inventory of public trees so that we can establish a tree management plan. This will help the city determine the mix of trees in public spaces and how to prepare for tree disesases and maintain tree diversity. Inspections are expected to begin Tuesday, June 21 and should be complete by Friday, June 24.

Smithtown Road Sidewalk – East Extension
Due to scheduling of multiple construction projects, there has been no construction activity onsite for the last few weeks, at the request of the City. The Contractor will resume construction operations this Friday (June 24).
All storm sewer installation has been completed throughout the project corridor. This week the Contractor will begin grading in preparation for the new concrete curb anticipated to be installed Tuesday, June 28, weather permitting. Restoration of the roadway will be completed following curb installation. Residents along the route should have their vehicle out of your driveway no later than 7:00 a.m., Tuesday, June 28th. Once the concrete curb is placed, residents will not be allowed to drive over the curb to access their driveway for 3-5 days after curb placement. The Contractor will backfill the curb adjacent to your driveway when access is allowed.
To allow for sufficient work zone to complete the concrete curb installation and road restoration, the Contractor may detour east bound Smithtown Road traffic beginning Tuesday, June 28th and continuing until the concrete curb installation and road restoration are complete. The traveling public is encouraged to find alternate route during the lane closure and to follow the posted detour.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Matt, 612.246.9347, or by email.

Signs will be placed prior to this closure notifying residents of the starting date. There will be no through traffic on Yellowstone Trail during this closure.
All construction is dependent upon weather.

Reporting Pot Holes
2016 Spring Watermain flushing began April 4 and will continue throughout the city until complete.
City water mains are flushed semi-annually in the spring and the fall. Households may experience rusty water, discoloration or low water pressure during flushing. However, if you do experience rusty water, running the cold-water tap will usually clean out your system. Call the Utility Division at 952.960.7900 if you have a problem related to flushing that does not clear up within 48 hours.
