Signs denoting Route 152 in Liberty.

The original route was called "Military Road" and connected the Liberty Arsenal with Fort Leavenworth. Military Road has been renamed Barry Road. Barry Road runs parallel to 152 on its south side on the west side and parallel to 152 on the north side in the eastern portions.[2]

In 2008, the Kansas City City Council approved a master plan for Kansas City International Airport that called for extensive improvements to the road so it could become a main thoroughfare to the proposed Central Terminal on the south side of the airport by 2025.[3]
