DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A landowner says Dodge City will have to move a longtime landmark on the western edge of the city if the state installs a 60-foot median when it widens U.S. 50.

The Kansas Department of Transportation wants to expand U.S. 50 to four lanes between Cimarron and Dodge City. The $69 million project includes the 60-foot median, or a second option of a 16-foot asphalt median.

The Dodge City Daily Globe reports the project would require removing parts of the Point of Rocks and adding a retaining wall.

Jack Fox owns the land where the ``Point of Rocks'' landmark sits. He told the Dodge City Commission Tuesday that the landmark, which is metal cowboy silhouette, will have to be moved if the 60-foot median is installed.
