COLLEGE STATION (AP) – Texas A&M University System regents have approved $352 million in renovations to the flagship campus in College Station.

The upgrades endorsed Thursday include a $168 million expansion and upgrade of the Zachry Engineering Center. The more than 40-year-old building will become the Engineering Education Complex. The upgrades should be completed in late 2017.

The Eagle newspaper reports the Corps of Cadets dormitories, starting in March, will get a $135 million expansion and overhaul.

A&M’s Commons Building is set for $49 million worth of improvements.

Regents also added a $25 million infrastructure improvement project at Tarleton State University in Stephenville to a capital improvement plan. Specifics on proposed construction have not yet been released.
