Report a Road

City streets are inspected and assessed annually for any needed maintenance and hazards (resurfacing and drainage). Public Works staff also inspects any received notification of hazards in streets. Please call 952.960.7900 for more information or to report a street needing repair or report online. Please be specific in describing the location and problem. Issues with county roads should be reported to Hennepin County. Problems on state and federal roads may be directed to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Speed Limits

The city maintains speed limits according to guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Transportation. If you notice a speed problem, you may request the Speed Awareness Display (SAD) be placed on the roadway to monitor speeds. Requests should be directed to South Lake Minnetonka Police Department. The SAD is in high demand, so your request will be put on a list and your street will be monitored when possible.
