Elon Musk’s Boring Company Gets Initial Clearance to Extend Loop Under Las Vegas Strip

Elon Musk’s Boring Company on Wednesday received the initial approval required to build a transportation system that would carry passengers in Tesla vehicles through a network of tunnels beneath Las Vegas.

Clark County officials’ approval of a special use permit and franchise agreement would allow the Boring Company to expand its Vegas Loop system beyond its 1.7 thousand footprint which connects the Las Vegas Convention Center campus to a 29-mile route with 51 stations that would include stops at casinos along the Las Vegas Strip, the city’s football stadium and UNLV. He would eventually reach McCarran International Airport. The Las Vegas Review was the first to report on the approval.

The Boring Company said it pay the tunnels, a point Clark County officials reiterated on Wednesday. According to the agreement with Clark County, the franchise agreement would last 50 years.

Although the project has reached an important milestone, it is not yet a done deal. This special use permit allows The Boring Company to apply for land use and construction permits for each station and tunnels. The Boring Company will also need to obtain a separate franchise agreement approved by the City of Las Vegas.
