AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – A construction project that has kept a key Auburn intersection closed throughout the summer is on schedule to be complete by the time Auburn University students return to campus for their first day of fall classes.
Media sources report that the project began in May and involves several enhancements to the junction of College Street and Magnolia Avenue.
The project is scheduled to be finished on Aug. 17, with the intersection reopening no later than Aug. 16.
Auburn Assistant City Manager Kevin Cowper said the aim is to transform the area into a community space where gatherings and events can be hosted.
