Donahoo Rd was identified by the state as a future cross state route many years ago. Wyandot County has already improved much of Donahoo to K-7 and the state improved the intersection on I-435. It is now time for the road to be continued into Leavenworth County and provide better access to the northern portion of Basehor .
