 MEDIAN LANDSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS ON LA MIRADA BOULEVARD AND ROSECRANS AVENUE

Construction is currently underway for Median Landscape Improvements for La Mirada Boulevard from Leffingwell Road to Alondra Boulevard and for Rosecrans Avenue from Valley View Avenue to Beach Boulevard.  California's mandated water restriction required that potable water not be used to irrigate ornamental turf grass on public street medians.  The mature trees within the medians also suffered due to the lack of irrigation and were in decline or had reached the end of their natural life span.  The new medians will include drought tolerant landscaping and trees which will enhance the look of the City.  The La Mirada Boulevard and Rosecrans Avenue medians are estimated to be completed in September and in December 2019, respectively. For more information please contact the City of La Mirada Public Work's Department at 562-902-2385.
