  • Strawberry Ct & Strawberry Ln Excelsior, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood

    Walking my dog each morning towards LRT trail on Strawberry Lane, we frequently encounter speeding cars and walker/biker/bus/school parking traffic issues. This morning I watched a Mother with 4 kids walking to school get pushed off the road by cars moving faster than speed limit going both directions. (not literally pushed off, but she had to grab kids and jump into yard because of the cars). This picture I took right after it happened, the red car was not involved.

    This happens more during morning rush hours, school drop off, and afternoon hours during school season. Removable speed bumps would be a quick solution to slow cars along Strawberry, or a path. I am a concerned Shorewood resident, just don't want to see any pedestrians harmed.

  • 20350 Excelsior Boulevard Shorewood, Minnesota - Shorewood

    Many people (my family included) bike and walk along Excelsior Blvd between Vine Hill and Manor Rd. A sidewalk or shoulder is desperately needed for safety. Many families with small children, people with dogs, elderly populations, and many cyclist groups utilize this road to access all that Shorewood and the surrounding neighborhoods have to offer. Excelsior Blvd along this stretch is a high traffic road where people drive very fast (tourists, church goers, uber/lyft drivers, and visitors to the area) yet there is low visibility with all the turns and trees, and it's VERY difficult to see pedestrians.

    I’d like to request a sidewalk extension or shoulder to be incorporated into the plans for the road reconstruction along this stretch of Excelsior Blvd. I believe a mill and overlay is scheduled for this fall, to which I am referring.

  • 6060 Strawberry Ln Excelsior, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    Strawberry lane is in need of rod reconstruction. Potholes, huge bumps in the road and NEEDS a sidewalk with the school nearby and lots of walking families with too much traffic
  • Cathcart Dr Shorewood MN 55331, United States - Shorewood
    Line of sight and lack of adequate trail and pedestrian cross walk markings for both trail users and drivers. There needs to be tree and brush clearing for better visibility. Thank you.
  • 6125 Church Rd Shorewood 55331, United States - Shorewood
    Flooding
  • 6125 Church Rd Excelsior, MN 55331, USA - Shorewood
    There is major flooding in the cul-de-sac on Church road. If it doesn't subside, it may be difficult for certain vehicles to get through. I know that this has been a constant problem for many years, and nothing seems to get done.
  • Forest Dr Excelsior, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    MY PARENTS LIVE AT 20925 FOREST DRIVE AND THE PEOPLE ACROSS THE STREET AT 20920 FOREST DRIVE DECIDED TO PUT LARGE ROCKS AROUND THERE YARD ON THE EDGE OF THE ROAD.

  • Tree Issue Acknowledged
    24240 Yellowstone Trl Shorewood, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    Large broken trees are laying on the power lines.
  • Mayflower Rd & Chaska Rd Shorewood, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    I don’t know if this is allowed, but these two trailers have been parked on the side of Mayflower between Galpin and Chaska for months. Again today people walking their dog had to go in the street with car traffic to get around the trailers.
    It does not seem safe.
  • Tree Issue Archived
    5725 Featherie Bay Shorewood, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    Several trees have been removed impacting the road buffer and conditions around the homes. One very large old tree was removed late Fall last year and never replaced. This tree was an old oak that provided shelter for animals and served as a focal point on the path. We would like to see a new tree planted to replace it and provide shelter on the path. There was also a large tree damaged in a storm that died and was taken out. This tree provided coverage from the driveway that goes in and out of Badger Park and City Hall to the homes that are across the street. We now get headlights from all the traffic leaving the park directly to our house with the tree gone. Can this one also be replaced?
  • 6087-6199 Cathcart Dr Excelsior, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    There are too many trees and shrubs on the trail side of where the trail crosses 62nd street and Cathcart road. It is really dangerous and hard for motorists coming down 62nd street from the church or heading south on Cathcart to see any walkers or bikers on the trail. And bikers and walkers to see cars coming from either direction. It's bad enough that the trail crosses in the middle of a 90 degree corner. Plus STOP signs for bikes and walkers need to be larger and in the middle of the trail to increase compliance with the STOP order. Recently an older cyclist blew through right in front of me, I had to brake hard, and then he flipped me the bird.
  • 6125 Church Rd Excelsior, MN 55331, USA - Shorewood
    Near the drainage ditch by the curve on Church road, there is MAJOR flooding. The water is going up over the curb and onto my property. This has been an ongoing issue for years without any follow through with the city. I was told the the city engineer was going to look into it and that permits were going to be pulled, but again, I don't feel that there is any progress being made.
