On time and on budget continues to be theme as phase one construction at Kyle Field enters its final month.
A project update Tuesday led by Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp included two items he hopes will reduce the number of complaints he gets after every home football game.
Sharp says at the top of the list is additional cell phone towers, which Sharp says will be resolved in 2015 when the west side of the stadium is completed.
Sharp says next on the list is a 340 percent increase in the number of women’s restroom stalls.

The new concession operator, Levy Restaurants, plans on almost three times the number of stands, including 60 locations to buy beverages. Mitch Phelps says non-profit groups will continue to staff the stands, and he’s looking for more organizations to man 40 locations.

Tim Lomax of the Texas A&M Transportation Institute invited everyone planning to be at Kyle Field this season to download and practice using the Destination Aggieland smartphone app. Features include where parking is available and pay for parking in advance, and routing trips to and from the stadium.
The app also includes changing traffic and shuttle-bus routes, timing of traffic signals, locations of pedestrian paths, extended free shuttle service with drop-off closer to the stadium, improved way finding, enhanced and safer pedestrian paths, and new game-day bike parking.
