DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) - A bill to help jumpstart the Juban Crossing project is back on the legislative agenda.

Senator Dale Erdey has prefiled a bill asking the legislature to approve using some state tax money for infrastructure improvements to the mixed-use development in Denham Springs.

A similar bill passed last year but Governor Jindal stopped it. Erdey says he thinks Jindal was mad at him at the time, but has had a change of heart.

On February 15th, 2011, leaders in Livingston lifted their shovels to officially break ground on the upscale shopping center.

The developer Stephen Keller announced at the groundbreaking that Kohl's would be the first to open its doors in the fall of 2012.
