News and Notes
RAINS FORCE TRAIL CLOSURE TO 123RD & MISSION TRAIL
Due to the recent heavy rain and flooding, a hill slide has forced the closure of the Tomahawk Trail link beginning at 123rd & Mission Road and ending at Tomahawk Park. Trail users must use the sidewalk along Mission Road to 119th Street. The Tomahawk Trail can be accessed by heading west on 119th Street from Mission Road.
The City of Leawood plans extensive repairs to stabilize the hillside closing this section of trail through the rest of 2013.
