Project Improvements

The County of Riverside and City of Menifee are working together to improve driving conditions on Leon Road.  The existing asphalt will be removed and replaced from Keller Road to south of Scott Road.  Grading will lower the high spots and fill in the large dips on Leon Road.  This will greatly improve sight distance and traffic safety.  As an additional safety feature, four-foot paved shoulders will be added.

The project will begin with construction of a retaining wall on the east side of Leon Road, between Via Las Rosas and Fowler Drive.  After the retaining wall is complete, the road reconstruction will begin.  The total project is expected to last approx. 3 months.

The project construction cost is estimated at $1,245,000.  Major funding for this project is provided by the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) for which the County successfully competed for.
