Strawberry Lane Road and Trail Project

Strawberry Lane, Strawberry Court & Peach Circle Updates

Construction Schedule Update

Remainder of July 26th - 28th: Storm sewer construction from Peach Circle to Alexander Lane is scheduled to continue. If you work from home or need to leave throughout the day during these operations, you may be asked to park your vehicle outside of the day’s working area while crews are onsite. Construction staff will continue to help coordinate this with you. Please utilize the Cathcart Drive detour or utilize alternate routes accordingly.

Strawberry Court and the remainder of Strawberry Lane south of Alexander Lane will be turned to gravel on Thursday, July 27th. Parking along the street will not be permitted while the reclamation machine is onsite to grind down the existing pavement. The construction crew plans to provide vehicle access for residents living in the Strawberry Court neighborhood as well as the south end of Strawberry Lane during the process. Private residential contractors will be required to keep equipment out of the roadway and construction area if they are scheduled to be working on your home.

Driveway removals for the remainder of the project south of Alexander Lane will begin on Thursday, July 27th. Please be patient with construction vehicles when traveling in the neighborhood.

July 31st - August 4th: Storm sewer construction will begin from the Regional Trail area and continue south towards Shorewood Oaks Drive. The resident project representatives will be coming around to help coordinate vehicle staging, if necessary, on a day by-day basis. 

If you experience an internet outage, please report the outage to your provider prior to contacting the project representatives onsite. There is internet access available for any resident with outage at the Shorewood Community and Event Center building near City Hall.


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. 

Additional Information

In the next few weeks, the roadway contractor will be installing watermain, water services, storm sewer, dropping off materials, and other miscellaneous items to the site. Trenches will be dug in the roadway, and equipment will be actively moving around onsite. Please note that all supplies and equipment will be staged in the boulevard locations of the project area during the end of each working day. If you are a resident traveling through the neighborhood; for your safety, please be patient with delivery crews and contractors on-site. The resident project representative Tom Vidmar will be onsite to help coordinate construction activities and communication with residents who will be affected on a day-by-day basis. We ask that you please use this email update as a primary source of project schedule information and updates on major construction work to come. Tom’s contact info is listed below.

The Strawberry Reconstruction Project was awarded by City Council on October 24, 2022. The first step of the construction phase will be tree clearing. City staff has been marking up the trees anticipated for removals with a dot of pink paint at the base of each tree. If residents have any questions on trees please contact City Engineer, Andrew Budde. The trees will later be marked with a large “X” a few days prior to the actual removal. It is anticipated that trees near the power poles will be trimmed for safety in the next few weeks. This trimming work will be done by Asplundh, coordinated by Xcel Energy. The full tree clearing work will be completed shortly following the trimming work. This clearing work will be done by Precision Landscape & Tree.

Proposed Schedule:

May thru September 2023: Construction
