Van Lee and Louwanda are being used as a cut-through from Rodney Parham for cars to get to Evergreen and Mississippi. Vehicles using this cut-through are usually speeding through the Leawood neighborhood, which makes it unsafe for pedestrians. Louwanda and Van Lee do not have sidewalks or a speed bump and it is dangerous when walking or biking due to the cut-through traffic. The traffic is especially heavy during the school year when parents cuts through the neighborhood to go to work and take their childern to schools located in the Hillcrest area. Based on the design of the S curve from Van Lee to Louwand it is evident that Van Lee was never intended to provide a cut-through to Louwanda and the Leawood neighborhood. This cut-through should be closed to provide Leawood residents a safe area to walk and ride bicycles.
