BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) — The Bossier City Council has approved using $7 million in revenue derived from riverboat gambling to pay for construction of roads around a proposed Kroger grocery store development off of Airline Drive.

KSLA reports the development is part of a plan by Cincinnati-based Kroger Co. for a 124,000-square-foot store in Bossier City.

Kroger southwest spokesman Gary Huddleston says the company asked city to build roads leading to the store and planned shopping center as part of the development deal.
