ARRANGEMENT: Alphanumerical by project number

DESCRIPTION: These Mylar drawings are created by district engineers whenever a project calls for property to be acquired. The records become an index for all property and their deeds, and includes parcel number and name of owner. These plans are legal documents which are cited when referring to a specific parcel of land and are used specifically to show where a road is going to go (or should have gone) in relation to people's property. They are also used to account for all property held by the Utah Department of Transportation, in conjunction with the Appraisal of property case files, series 3324. The plans include details of the plats and the proposed roadway.
