.

Saxon presented the relevant facts to the board of directors of the corporation and recommended that the corporation build a restaurant in Portland at the location indicated. The board of directors agreed, and the new restaurant was constructed at significant cost. The plans for the highway were changed after the restaurant had been constructed, and the highway was built in a location different from the original plan.
