Holmes Road Public Improvements

Holmes Road Public Improvements

Design Plans Are Underway for Holmes Road!

With all three phases of 135th Street construction complete, we’re finally able to turn our attention toward improving Holmes Road. Public improvements 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

Holmes Road Public Improvements include:

  • Widening the two-lane roadway to three-lanes with a center turn lane
  • Addition of a 5-foot sidewalk on the east side
  • Addition of a 10-foot multi-use trail on the west side
  • New curbs and gutters
  • New street lighting

Project Costs:

  • The total estimated project cost is $7.5 million
  • Funding will come from the $800 million general obligation bond
  • Funding for design work has come from KCMO Sixth District PIAC funds

Construction Timeline:

  • Design work is currently underway (COVID-19 has significantly slowed progress)
  • Right-of-way and final design completion are anticipated by the end of summer 2020.
  • Construction progress will be dependent on available funding

We are doing our best to keep the community informed of the process and are working diligently with KCMO Planning to secure funds for Holmes Road improvements. Public meetings will be held again when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
