Update (Feb 15, 2011): Rob Johnson with the City of Menifee relayed to me this morning via Twitter that they are going to remove the barrier at La Piedra Rd & White Fir Dr, and pave it all the way through to Murrieta Rd, and have it done before February 21, 2011. Hence the alternate route will continue along La Piedra Rd.
FYI, the Murrieta Rd closure will remained closed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for eight months.

The City of Menifee announced on its Twitter feed today that Murrieta Rd will be closed between San Quintin Rd and La Piedra Rd beginning February 21, 2011 and lasting until October 11, 2011.
The closure is due to construction work relating to the Audie Murphy Ranch Project.
The City recommended an alternate route connecting Evans Rd to Murrieta Rd via La Piedra Rd. However, La Piedra Rd does not actually go all the way through. There's a barrier preventing traffic.
It appears the correct alternate route is to take Holland Rd to Murrieta Rd.

Holland Rd appears to be the correct alternate route.
