COLLEGE STATION - The west side of Kyle Field is set for implosion on Dec. 21, less than a month after the stadium becomes a construction zone.

The construction team in charge of the $450 million Kyle Field redevelopment will have 290 days to implode and rebuild the west side of the stadium and renovate the north side before the 2015 football season.

Preparation for the demolition began weeks ago, but construction is officially set to kick off two hours after the finish of the game against LSU. The stadium won't open again until Sept. 15, 2015.

When complete, the stadium will seat 102,512, with 12 seats to be left open in honor of those who died in the 1999 bonfire collapse.

In addition to new suites, premium areas, concession stands and bathroom facilities, the stadium will also see the addition of the Hall of Champions.

Other changes will include the opening of the press box on the east side of the stadium, which remained under construction during the season.
