Heading towards the Shawnee Mission Parkway on southbound Rainbow, this guide assembly indicates that US 56 follows the SMP, but no mention is made as to which way US 169 goes (for the record, it's to the right) 26 May 2013

The advance guide sign for the US 56 exit on I-135 in McPherson features an off-balance placement of the highway shields. In order for the "BUSINESS" banner to fit cleanly above the US 81 shield, the US 56 shield got moved to the side. 20 July 2013

Another guide sign with a bordered highway shield. This one is a bordered US 56 shield on I-135 in McPherson. 20 July 2013
