Will you use these funds to improve 138th Street or Metropolitan Avenue?

We use these sales tax proceeds to fund millions of dollars in street maintenance and repairs. Improvements to 138th Street from Kump (K-32) to Morse are currently in progress. These improvements will widen 138th Street and add sidewalks along this stretch of road. The City is in the process of acquiring the necessary right-of-way and easements to complete the project. Construction is anticipated to start in 2024.

The City also submitted a grant request for funding to reconstruct Metropolitan from Nettleton to the county line at 142nd Street. If funding is awarded, plans to improve Metropolitan would include sidewalks and widening the roadway.
