Bicycling

Overland Park has a long-term, comprehensive bicycle plan.

This coordinated and strategic effort to develop a comfortable, safe, and accessible network of bicycle facilities throughout Overland Park by:

  • Improving bicycle safety, access, and connectivity throughout the city.
  • Providing support for improving bicycling in the city.
  • Promoting the benefits of bicycling and bicycle safety.
  • Measuring and evaluating Overland Park’s progress toward bicycle safety.

The City Council reviews plan implementation suggestions on a regular basis to determine funding for new projects, including additional bike lanes and sharrows on city streets.

The plan proposed 263 miles of bicycling infrastructure, including additional bike lanes and sharrows on city streets. The plan also involves better connections to and between existing trails, and the addition of bike lanes to already-planned new road project in southern Overland Park.
