Ten months down and two years to go. That is the time line for completion of the A&M Health Science Center.

The 200 acre tract on Highway 47 in Bryan is being cleared to make way for the multi-million dollar project.

Wednesday A&M Health Science Center officials promised the Bryan Campus would be open for students by Summer of 2010. Once completed, there are promises of greatness not just for the city, but the region.

"It's a great economic development tool for the city of Bryan," said Bryan Mayor Mark Conlee. "It's great for the Health Science Center to have a campus that is their own and not part of the other one, where they have their own identity and they have plenty of room to grow. And there's room for other people to move on to this campus, so there can be research companies and medical device companies and all kind of other things. It'll make it a total medical hub here."

"That puts Bryan-College Station in place to be a medical destination," said Dr. Nancy Dickey, Texas A&M Health Science Center President. "Instead of having to fight the traffic to Houston, you can come here, park free, get the same quality of care and be home, while you would have still been looking for your valet stub in Houston."

The two buildings would consolidate all of the offices and buildings the A&M Health Science Center has spread across the county.
