Several La Jolla businesses closed for ADA construction work

Construction crews are hard at work this week, making the commercial strip on the 600 block of Pearl Street that includes Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, El Pescador Fish Market and Mitch’s Surf Shop ADA-compliant after a complaint that originally was believed to be from ADA activist attorney Theodore Pinnock but was not.

El Pescador owner Sean Shannon said he was informed in spring that disabled upgrades would be necessary to his eatery and had been waiting to comply until after Labor Day and the summer tourist season. He said all three establishments were to be closed for repairs for a couple of days. He added Mitch’s needs to add a wheelchair lift.
