  • Elon Musk's Boring Company shares potential map of LA tunnel network

Elon Musk's mysterious plans to construct underground tunnels aimed at cutting down on Los Angeles gridlock are becoming a little less murky. "A large network of tunnels many levels deep would fix congestion in any city, no matter how large it grew", the Boring Company website explained. Boring Company's experience is in tunneling, suggesting that it would propose an underground system. The line in red that goes from West LA to Culver City is where the so far only approved 10 km proof-of-concept tunnel will run. This first tunnel would be used for "construction logistics verification, system testing, safety testing, operating procedure verification, and line-switching demonstrations" and is awaiting the approval of an excavation permit. Musk's first demonstration of a vehicle elevator in-action, lowering a Tesla Model S into a tunnel entrance, was a first look at his vision for a cost effective, underground transportation system coming to life.

Only upon successful tests of the company's first route by government officials would The Boring Company make it available for public use. The serial entrepreneur intends to build a multi-layer transportation system that would facilitate high-speed travel by using electric skates.

City documents obtained today by Curbed include a preliminary map showing an extensive network of tunnels called "Loop".

"Electric skates will carry between 8 and 16 passengers (mass transit), or a single passenger vehicle".

Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital
Consulate General in Jerusalem tweeted on Tuesday that U.S. citizens should avoid areas where crowds have gathered to demonstrate. Palestinians have been stung by Trump's decision, which they see as adopting Israel's position without regard for their own.


Based on the red section of tunnel being roughly 6.5-miles long, you can work out the distance covered from end-to-end by the tunnel, taking you from Sherman Oaks to Long Beach Airport in just under 40 miles.

Phase II is a huge expansion of the tunnel system and is simply a concept right now with no "finalized alignment".

The company said Phase 2 would be developed in cooperation with stakeholders, including LA County, the City of LA as well as the general public.
