City of Menifee completes road project

A thoroughfare linking two different portions of road in Menifee was completed Wednesday, March 19, giving area residents an easier way of getting about, city officials reported.

The road project, referred to as the "missing link," connected Aldergate Drive and Simpson road in Menifee through what was a half-mile, four lane stretch of dirt road.

Now the missing link has been filled in and crews spent most of last week installing traffic lights and insuring the road project was ready to go for area-drivers.

As crews began to finish up, City Manager Rob Johnson encouraged area residents to refrain from driving on it until it was officially opened.

"We know the public is anxious to see this stretch of road open," Johnson said in a city release. "Until we complete the final punch-list of remaining items and get the traffic lights up and running, we ask the community to respect the road closure and stay off of the missing link. This is still an active construction site and we are keeping it closed until work is complete for the safety of the community."

Southern California Edison provided power to three stoplights that evening in time for the opening of the road on Wednesday.
