Traffic and Transportation

Overland Park continually strives to address issues of traffic flow and congestion within the city not only for safety reasons, but also because it's what residents rank as the top priority based on citywide surveys.

To further ensure safety, speed limits are based on street design, traffic volume and other factors. Overland Park regularly updates a Speed Limit map for streets.

The city has many ways of addressing traffic flow and congestion, including widening roads, constructing new turn lanes, making operational changes to traffic signals and installing traffic calming measures.
