The Las Vegas Boring project is coming to the light at the end of the tunnel, putting on the last finishing touches of Tesla solar panels on station roofs
The Boring Company in partnership with the LVCC, the Las Vegas Convention Center group has been busy burrowing, with Prufrock the Drill, in it’s work to complete a tunnel loop for the Vegas area.

The @ElonMusk tunnel project just got a metric hell ton more fabulous. Garage Mahal to Allegiant in roughly, oh, already there. @BoringCompany pic.twitter.com/AY3oE6QWYq— Vital Vegas (@VitalVegas) October 13, 2020

Loop is a high-speed underground transportation system in which passengers are transported via compatible autonomous electric vehicles (AEVs) at capable of up to 155 miles per hour.
Vegas, “the city that never sleeps”, will be moving people at lightening speed.

Doubles as an underground nuclear shelter 😀👍 pic.twitter.com/CvI0YRjObE— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 16, 2020
The Stations for the LVCC Loop are coming to completion and adding Tesla solar panels.
Maybe a month or so. Some finishing touches need to be done on the stations.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 14, 2020
Focusing on completing this Vegas loop first right? pic.twitter.com/LEcM3wq5k0— Pranay Pathole (@PPathole) October 14, 2020
There was some false information circulating that the loop itself would not be capable of high traffic but that has been debunked and untrue.
(Be sure to click on the graphic in the tweet below.)
Time to dispel some @boringcompany FUD. This simulation moved 2,178 pax per hour, per *station*, per *direction*. That's over 13,000 pax per hour for the whole loop. There is no build up of pedestrians, ample crossing opportunity and still nowhere near theoretical capacity limit. pic.twitter.com/EjWJ3m7Jho— Phil Harrison (@phlhr) October 25, 2020
All Boring Loops will include continuously circulating cars dedicated to pedestrians & cyclists— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 19, 2018

You can watch the project from on-site live-cams.

Do you like electrons? Do you like tunnels? Sounds like a match! Looking for the most talented electrical engineers in the world to help solve the problem of soul-destroying traffic.
