96th Street is a parkway from Platte Purchase Drive, across 169, to just past North Oak. It is planned to some day connect to a network of other parkways but for now it is an isolated stretch lying just across either side of the freeway. The route cuts across farmland, that is bisected the other direction by the former right-of-way of the Quincy, Omaha, and Kansas City Railroad.
