Holmes Road Public Improvements

Holmes Road Public Improvements

Early Stages of Design Planning Are Underway!

With all three phases of 135th Street construction complete, we’re turning our attention toward improving Holmes Road. The improvement plan will focus on the section of Holmes Road from Blue Ridge Boulevard to 137th Street in the Martin City Community Improvement District.

Holmes Road design Martin City, Missouri

Proposed Roadway Improvements include:

  • Widening the 2-lane roadway to 3-lanes with a center turn lane
  • A 5-foot sidewalk on the east side
  • A 10-foot multi-use trail on the west side
  • New curb and gutter
  • New street lighting

Current Timeline:

  • Design work is currently underway
  • Right-of-way and final design completion is anticipated by the end of 2019
  • Construction dependent on available funding
  • Funding for design work will come from KCMO Sixth District PIAC funds

Upcoming Public Information Meeting

If you’re interested in learning more about this project, we’re hosting a public meeting on Thursday, May 9th where representatives from Kansas City’s Public Works Department will present design plans and answer questions. All are welcome to attend and you do not need to RSVP.

Meeting Date/Time: Thursday, May 9, 2019, 8:30 AM
Location: Jess and Jim’s Steakhouse, 517 E 135th St., KCMO, 64145

Sixth District Councilman, Scott Taylor says targeted infrastructure improvements like this spur significant investments from the private sector and we know that helps generate more tax revenue for basic City services for all neighborhoods in Kansas City, not just Martin City. We will continue educating the public about all the opportunities Martin City has to offer, and are working diligently to show Kansas City leaders how improving our District improves Kansas City.
