Progress Does Not Come Without a Price

Dodge City, KS (westernkansasnews.com) Preserving an important piece of history versus making needed road improvements. That is the battle shaping up in Dodge City as K-DOT looks to eventually expand US 50 which means taking away part of the point of rocks west of town. Kirk Hutchinson of  K-DOT says there’s no give to the 69 million dollars allocated for this project.
