City of Shawnee

Midland Drive

City staff partnered with the consulting firm Olsson Associates to develop a concept study for the future of Midland Drive from Shawnee Mission Parkway to I-435.  

A Neighborhood Meeting was held on Wednesday, April 27, 2022. At the meeting, examples of different designs for the stretch of Midland between Shawnee Mission Parkway and I-435 were displayed. Those different designs included things like how the road is laid out, pedestrian and bicycle paths, safety features, drainage options, property impacts, lane modifications and more. 

Below you will find the four different conceptual roadway sections that were displayed as well as a potential roadway shift on Midland Drive just south of Shawnee Mission Parkway.  These designs varied from adding bike lanes, a shared use path, sidewalk and curb and gutter throughout the corridor to leaving the corridor exactly as it is today.

We want to hear what you think about the concepts so staff can explore, design and construct a potential project that meets the needs of Midland Drive Corridor users if we are able to secure funding in the future. If you were not available to provide your input at the Neighborhood Meeting, please complete the quick survey so we can have your feedback.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to Project Engineer Cody Wilbers at (913) 742-6234 or [email protected].
