In a reply on Twitter, about forever congested traffic, Founder of “The Boring Company” Elon Musk encouraged people to try the first Boring Company operational tunnel the LVCC (Las Vegas Convention Center) Loop, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It’s either traffic forever or tunnels. Try our first operational tunnel in Vegas at the convention center! The city just approved a full tunnel network, connecting major hotels, convention center & airport.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 22, 2021
The LVCC Loop, a three-station transportation system consisting of 1.7 miles of tunnels, aimed to be built in approximately one year began construction and tunneling in mid 2019 and ended mid 2020, but due to Covid restrictions and closures wasn’t open to the public until mid 2021. The LVCC Loop cost was $47 million which included two tunnels and three stations, two surface and one subsurface.
Thank you to @LVCVA @LVCVAImpact – hope we can do great things for Las Vegas together! https://t.co/lVCfBl8olP

Nevada’s Governor after taking a ride was quoted stating, “If you haven’t taken the ride, believe me, take the ride before you leave, it’s something to experience.” — Governor Steve Sisolak. The remarks were during his attendance of the ribbon cutting event for the West Hall Las Vegas Convention Center Loop, before the first official public rides at the convention show “World of Concrete Show” June 8th 2021 in which attendees would experience it.
World of Concrete attendees experiencing the Boring LVCC Loop can be seen in the video below:

Now that the Las Vegas Convention Center Loop is finished, one can take a ride, via a Tesla, in the tunnels. This will cut down a 45 minute walk to a 2 minute ride. More information on the Boring Company LVCC Loop and other Boring Projects can be found on the Boring Company’s webpage.
