On Wednesday, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) announced that it would recommend The Boring Company to build a two-mile loop under the city’s massive, expanding convention center.
The LVCVA’s recommendation must be approved by the authority’s board on March 12 to move forward.
The Boring Company is Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk’s third company, started with the intention to make large-scale tunneling projects cheaper and easier to complete. Musk offered tours of a rough initial tunnel in December 2018 in Hawthorne, California, under the SpaceX Headquarters.
