Shorewood Reaches Out to MnDOT Following Fatal Highway 7 Collision

After a tragic collision at the intersection of Eureka Road and Highway 7 claimed the life of 20-year-old Parker Nelson, I wrote a letter to the Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Transportation.  This letter includes the names and contact information of individuals that Shorewood residents should contact with their concerns about the safety of this intersection or the safety of the Highway 7 corridor in general.  The letter can be found on Shorewood’s website at by scrolling down to “Latest News.”
