Construction Updates

La Mesa is working to improve your streets! In addition to the new dining and retail options popping up across the City, La Mesa is working to improve the “citizen experience” in every aspect, one street at a time. See below, for the full list of construction updates to familiarize yourself with how your city government is working for you.

Vista La Mesa Park

Vista La Mesa Park will be regraded, and a new playground will be added. Additionally, a new picnic area will be placed near the ball field and snack bar. The project has been funded by private donations via the La Mesa Park and Recreation’s Foundations “It’s Child’s Play” campaign. Major donors include EDCO and Union Bank. The park is expected to open this fall, specific date TBD.

Re-Pavement Work

The City will carry out major street re-pavement work on University Ave, 70th Street, Palm Avenue, La Mesa Blvd, Lemon Avenue and several other key locations throughout the area, beginning in October. Much of the construction will take place during the day, outside of the peak hours (8:30 am to 3:30 pm). Each location will take a few days to complete. The last of the re-pavement work will be completed at the end of the year. This project has been funded by the Senate Bill (SB) 1 Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.   

Northern La Mesa

There will be protective coating and restoration agent applied to the pavement of several streets in Northern La Mesa, starting in October. The work will be completed at the end of November and will take place during off-peak hours in the the daytime.

Sewer Replacement Project

There will be a sewer replacement project taking place on Alvarado Road west of 70th Street, which is expected to begin in November. Most of the work will take place during the off-peak hours of the day, and will be completed within 2-3 months.
