Boring Co. Vegas Loop Expansion Looms as LV Monorail Files for Bankruptcy

Written by Joey Klender, Teslarati


As of right now, the Boring Company tunnel, known as the Las Vegas Convention Center loop, is under construction, and operation is “only a few months away,” according to Musk. The Loop is expected to be operational in January 2021.


Interestingly enough, the LVCVA was the entity that approved the contract and accepted the Boring Company’s $52.5 million bid for an underground loop that will move around 4,000 people per hour. It will also cut down a 15-minute walk into a two- to three-minute ride.


As of right now, the LVCC loop will transport people from the convention center across its massive campus. However, there are plans to extend the Loop onto the Vegas Strip along with other points of interest. These include a majority of notable Vegas hotels and the McCarran Airport at the bottom of the Strip.


However, the Boring Company’s plans do not stop there. According to the map for the potential expansion, the tunnel could extend to Los Angeles, and a Boring Company tent was spotted at a location between the two cities that hints toward ongoing testing for the massive tunnel.
