​​​​​COLLEGE STATION - Texas A&M University's athletic director described the pressing need for an outdoor track-and-field complex saying, "[this] team [is] on the road more than Willie Nelson."​

The Texas A&M regents approved a new track venue to the tune of almost $40 million.

The 3,000-seat stadium will be located at the corner of George Bush Dr. and Penberthy Rd. and adjacent to the current stadium.

To boot, the regents threw in a new $28.6 million stadium for Jo Evans' softball squad.

The 2,000-seat softball stadium will be at the southwest corner of Tom Chandler Rd. and Penberthy Rd.

Both are expected to open in time for their respective 2018 seasons and will be built in the same architectural scheme as the new Kyle Field and baseball's Blue Bell Park.
