AUBURN, Ala. (WALA) - Officials at Auburn University unveiled a new design for Toomer's corner during an event marking the final rolling of the poisoned oak trees at the corner.
Officials said the final rolling of the trees was held on Saturday ahead of the trees' removal on Tuesday.
The design, which is centered around an arcing path, is set to be implemented in 2014 and will coincide with the planting of two new oak trees. The final design came from the input of many people in the Auburn community.
"We are unveiling the results of your ideas today," said Bill Stone, Auburn Alumni Association president, who helped unveil an artist's rendering. "I can tell one thing for certain: Live trees will be planted on the corner and the great tradition of rolling the corner will continue."
The new design will place the trees farther back from the intersection and keep the 1917 gates in their current conditions, according to officials. It will also incorporate more seating and shaded areas.
