Bituminous Paving: Bituminous paving operations are scheduled for November 2nd & 3rd. While paving crews are onsite, please note that on street parking along Strawberry Lane, Strawberry Court, and Peach Circle will be prohibited during working hours. Paving operations are anticipated to last approximately 2 days. Vehicle travel will be very slow and limited through the working area each day. Please plan to give yourself 10-15 minutes of extra travel time to come in and out of the neighborhood as equipment will be active in the area. Upon completion of bituminous paving, crews will be onsite to begin removal of remaining driveway pieces, prep driveways for pavement, and begin topsoil installation and dormant seeding.

Mailboxes are scheduled to be installed Friday, November 3rd.

November 6-10

Driveway preparation and paving, topsoil installation, manhole adjustments, restoration, and dormant seeding will be taking place. Although there will be pavement in the roadway area throughout the neighborhood, crews will be actively working around the neighborhood and in the roadway. Please travel with caution and note that the neighborhood is only open to local residents who live on the site. There will be no parking allowed on the street while crews are onsite. Thru traffic is prohibited.

Please remind guests, visitors, or your contractors to travel slowly and cautiously through the site.

FAQs & Project Related Topics

Completion Outlook

Currently, the construction project is behind schedule by about 8 weeks from the originally projected time of completion. Aside from just pavement and curb being installed, there are other miscellaneous construction activities that need to take place before the roadway can be open to through traffic. As roadway construction continues to progress, the roadway is scheduled to be open to traffic in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, access will be restricted to local residents only.  


Water Service Hook Ups 

For those residents who are interested in the connection to City Water, please visit the city's website.

Turf Restoration

Turf restoration is scheduled to take place after the roadway is paved and general pavement and concrete repairs are completed. In the meantime, crews will be slowly excavating and removing miscellaneous debris and excess soils from the boulevard area as the road section construction is being completed. Turf seeding will take place this fall, but final turf seeding and touch ups will take place in the Spring of 2024.

Contractors will be responsible for watering lawns for 30 days, at which time residents will be notified that they are to take over maintenance (i.e. watering, mowing).

Tree Planting

Tree planting handouts will be provided in the coming weeks as the city is working on a supplier list of available trees for order. 

Irrigation Repair

Irrigation Repairs will begin to take place project-wide. If your system has been winterized, the irrigation contractor will re-winterize your system after repairs have been made.

Driveway Repairs/ Installation

Driveway patching/ repair will be completed this fall after the roadway is paved.

Topsoil Installation

Not all current boulevard conditions are finalized yet. Boulevard cleanup and imported topsoil will come in turn after curb is installed.

Roadway Mainline Paving

Roadway Mainline Paving is tentatively scheduled to be completed November 2 & 3.


Residents Living along the East Side of Strawberry Lane will have mailboxes placed on the West side of Strawberry Lane. They are currently being coordinated to be multiple boxes on one post to minimize the amount of Mailbox posts on the West Side of the Street. The new mailbox posts for affected residents are scheduled to be installed this week.


Please remove any landscape items that you would like to save that are within the city Right of way area. 

Please label your garbage cans with your address written on duct tape so that crews may be able to move garbage and recycling cans for pickup on days where the roadway will not be passable. We ask that you set these cans out on Tuesday afternoon/evening so that crews can quickly move them to available pick-up locations outside of the working area.

Temporary mailboxes are installed and located along the North side of Shorewood Oaks Drive near the intersection of Strawberry Lane and Shorewood Oaks Drive. This includes mailboxes for all residents living on the Strawberry Lane project and adjacent roadways. To alleviate congestion, ensure mail delivery is not missed, and provide safety measures, it has been placed just outside of the construction. See the below image of the location:

If you have package deliveries that need to be made, please have them sent to City Hall to ensure safe keeping. Delivery drivers will not have access to the neighborhood while construction is taking place. The address is: Shorewood City Hall, 5755 Country Club Rd, Shorewood, MN 55331

Equipment, materials, and supplies will continue to be staged in various locations of the construction area.
