29 miles long with 51 stops
Yesterday, Clark County Commissioners approved The Boring Company’s plans for its Vegas Loop system.
Elon Musk’s venture is one step closer to start digging its tunnel that will let Tesla vehicles to travel at high speeds under Las Vegas via a network of tunnels.

The approval by Clark County officials allows The Boring Company to expand its system into a 29-mile route with 51 stations that will include stops at hotels and casinos along the Las Vegas Strip, the Allegiant American football stadium, the University of Nevada, McCarran International Airport, and more.
