K-12 (Kansas highway)
|Maintained by KDOT|
|Existed:||1985 – 1987|
|West end:||K-7 in Shawnee|
|East end:||Missouri state line at Kansas City|
K-12 was commissioned when the first section of the current K-10 freeway was completed from K-7 in Olathe, Kansas to I-435 in Lenexa, Kansas. K-10, at the time, overlapped K-7 from Olathe north to Shawnee Mission Parkway.
When the K-10 freeway segment from Lawrence to Olathe was completed, K-10 was signed for the entire length (both sections) of the expressway, and K-12 was displaced.
When K-10 was designated on the expressway between Lawrence and Lenexa, K-12 was realigned north to take the place of the former K-10 alignment. It followed Shawnee Mission Parkway from K-7 in Shawnee, Kansas. It turned north on Merriam Drive in Merriam, Kansas, which follows into Kansas City, Kansas. Merriam Lane turns into Southwest Blvd. near US-169, and K-12 ended not far east at the Missouri state line.
