Elon Musk’s Boring Company has completed construction on the second of two vehicular tunnels that make up the new and innovative underground transportation system located beneath the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) campus.
The boring machine broke through the concrete wall near the 1.4 million square foot convention center expansion, which is currently more than 80 percent complete, signaling the completion of excavation for the two one-way tunnels known as the Convention Center Loop.
The expansion and the Convention Center Loop are scheduled to open to the public in January, 2021.
Steve Hill, LVCVA CEO and president, says: “This milestone not only helps usher in the future of transportation in Las Vegas, but it signals the destination’s ability to push through during trying times and continue to meet the evolving needs of our visitors. Las Vegas continues to break through boundaries, and we look forward to offering this first-of-its-kind transportation solution to our convention attendees.”
The $52.5 million project will allow convention attendees to be whisked across the 200-acre campus in under two minutes, free of charge, in all-electric Tesla vehicles.
