The Tomahawk Creek Trail extension project designed by Schlagel completed a missing link in the extensive trail system follows the Tomahawk Creek. The trail connected to the existing trail in, a city park in Leawood, Kansas and extended through, a city park in Overland Park, Kansas. Obtaining approval from multiple government agencies at the City, County, and State level was part of the services provided for the project. Schlagel staff worked closely with the staff from the Leawood Parks and Recreation Department, Overland Park Parks and Recreation Department, and Johnson County Parks and Recreation Department. The design involved developing solutions for a bridge crossing and several culvert crossings over tributaries to Tomahawk Creek. The trail location was carefully designed to preserve significant existing trees along the creek and in the parks.
