DENHAM SPRINGS (NBC33) - Livingston parish officials broke ground today on a project that's been five years in the making.
Parish President Mike Grimmer, along with the entire Juban family were just a few of the people that broke ground on the 471 acre development.
Economists predict Juban crossing will bring the parish $21.8 million dollars in tax collections over the next 25 years.
They anticipate an additional 1,500 jobs in construction alone.
President Mike Grimmer says, the only problem now is building it fast enough.
