Boring Company’s application in order to extend the Vegas Loop in downtown Las Vegas was approved by the Las Vegas City Council.
Using Tesla vehicles, the Loop which is envisioned to be an almost 58km tunnel network with more than 55 stations, will provide an underground transport service. The intended project is due to include the existing Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) Loop and now extend into downtown, including the Strip, the Fremont Street Experience, and the City of Las Vegas.
Following that the Boring Company’s Prufrock TBM surfaced at Resorts World in February, linking the LVCC Loop and the Vegas Loop, the groundwork was laid for the Loop’s first station. The transportation capacity of LVCC Loop during the tech event CES 2022 in January was 15,000-17,000 daily.
The estimated date for commencing this expansion project, which is being privately funded, is early 2023.
Stretching among Golden Glades Transit Center and Sunny Isles Beach at Newport Pier, plans for a loop around North Miami Beach were submitted by Boring Company in February, while it has also proposed several projects in Texas.
