Frost Rollins and Jason Crane enter Auburn's campus between Toomer's Oaks on Thursday. Kevin Cowper, assistant Auburn city manager, said the ToomerÕs Corner rolling tradition will continue in the fall of 2013 with a triangular wiring system. The ToomerÕs Oaks are scheduled to be removed April 23. Construction of the new design is planned to begin after the 2013 football season.

The Toomer’s Corner rolling tradition will continue this fall with a triangular wiring system, and students at Auburn have mixed feelings about the intermediate fix.
Three concrete poles would be placed near the white rock in the median on College Street and in the two landscaped islands in front of Toomer’s Drugstore and the Bank Vault on the opposite sides of the corner to replace the ailing Toomer’s Oaks, which are set to be removed April 23, days after the Tigers’ A-Day football game and the trees’ last rolling.
