Elon Musk is at it again with the Boring Company! They have released a map of what an LA tunnel system may look like once completed, and it looks electric (wink-wink)!
The Boring Company has already been working on a two-mile test tunnel that runs underneath the streets of its headquarters in Hawthorne, but they have also released a map of some potential routes that their tunnels may take, should they get approved by the city of Los Angeles.
They stressed that this map is only a concept, and still hasn’t been approved by the city – which we’re sure will be putting the Boring Company through an intense vetting process before signing off on any formal plans.
It runs as far south as the Long Beach airport to the northernmost point in Sherman Oaks.
Most of the tunnels seem to be shadowing the route of the immensely crowded 405 and 110 freeways – which would be a huge relief to LA’s chronic traffic problem, if they were to be completed.
It would have entry and exit lifts through the South Bay, LAX, Venice/Marina, Santa Monica, Culver City, and UCLA areas, along the 405 route.
The 110 route would be able to take you through downtown stopping as far as Echo Park/Silver Lake and the Dodger Stadium.
Needless to say, we hope the plans for at least the proof of concept portion, from Inglewood to West LA, get approved as soon as possible; we’re sure we speak for most of LA residents when we say that we cant bare the LA traffic any longer.
As native Angelenos here at Tunnel Insider, we understand the tremendously positive impact this could have on LA county.
Until we hear more updates, we’ll be cheering on Elon and the whole Boring Company team.
