OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) -- A 20-foot bronze statue of swimming dolphins will soon be installed in Ocean City.

The Daily Times of Salisbury ( ) reports resort officials have approved preliminary plans for the statue, which would go at the mid-town entrance to the city.

Lauren Taylor, a member of the nonprofit Public Art Committee of the Ocean City Development Corp., says the statue of a trio of dolphins should be completed by June. It will go at 62nd Street and Coastal Highway near the base of the Route 90 bridge.

The sculpture will be blue-gray in color. The estimated cost of the project is $100,000. Organizers are working to solicit donations and sponsorship to pay for the statue. A fundraiser is planned for March 22.
