SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Woods Cross family who fought the Utah Department of Transportation could be getting a big payoff.
A jury in 3rd District Court awarded the Thalman family $4.3 million for 237 acres of farmland that is in the path of the Legacy Parkway. To top it off, the jury added $1.2 million in interest.
The $5.5 million is $200,000 more than the Thalman family asked for the land in 2001. UDOT offered only $1.9 million, then moved to condemn the property.
A UDOT spokesman declined to comment on the jury's ruling.
The property has been in the Thalman family for more than 100 years.
