Elon Musk’s The Boring Company has started tunneling on its first commercial project at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC).
The transportation system will allow convention attendees to move across the LVCC’s 200-acre campus in approximately one minute.
The $52.5 million underground people mover will include three passenger stations connecting the existing 3.2 million square-feet of convention space with the LVCC’s new 1.4 million square-foot West Hall currently under construction.
At the opening event, The Boring Company’s President, Steve Davis, said: “Less than one year ago this project was just an idea on paper; today, we’re ready to begin tunnelling.”
When completed in January 2021, the underground people mover will be comprised of two tunnels with an expected total length of approximately one mile each. The system will have the potential to expand and link key visitor attractions throughout Las Vegas including Downtown Las Vegas and McCarran International Airport.
The Boring Company is also developing projects in Chicago and Hawthorne, California.
