The western piece of Newport Road is being realigned into Railroad Canyon Road, but the existing section between Goetz and Berea roads will remain as an alternative route between Quail Valley and Sun City. That segment that will be called Normandy Road.
I don't know the significance of "Normandy" as it relates to Menifee. Perhaps there is a historical connection, since many of the major thoroughfares in Menifee are named after Menifee pioneers.

Perhaps a local history buff here can Post a Comment and shed some light.
