MENIFEE- The city of Menifee announced that another transportation improvement is now complete. The Murrieta Road Resurfacing Project, which resurfaced approximately 1 mile of street surfaces from Rouse Road to Ethanac Road, was completed. The project included crack filling, street paving, adjusting utilities to grade and new striping and street signs along Murrieta Road.

Murrieta Road is a highly traveled north-south corridor that bifurcates the city of Menifee. Murrieta Road between Rouse Road to Ethanac Road has an average daily traffic count of approximately 7,300 vehicles per day. The improvement will benefit the residents of Menifee and the many visitors traveling through Menifee.

“Due to Murrieta Road being so highly traveled, the resurfacing project was a high priority for the city,” Director of Public Works Jonathan Smith said. “Thanks to Measure DD, we were able to fund the entire project, and we are happy to announce the project’s completion. We are looking forward to continuing to make the transportation improvements that Menifee needs.”

The $550,000 project was funded by Measure DD, the one-cent sales tax measure approved by Menifee voters in 2016. The resurfacing project was a part of Menifee’s pavement management program.
