The Boring Company’s twin tunnels for its upcoming Las Vegas Convention Center Loop have been completed. With the buildout of the people-mover system largely unaffected by the outbreak of the coronavirus, the transport tunnels are still expected to be ready for public use in time for the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show.
That is, of course, if CES still happens. The ongoing pandemic has affected multiple sectors worldwide, and it has resulted in cancellations and delays for numerous high-profile events. That being said, if CES 2021 ends up pulling through, participants can be assured that they will have a convenient way to travel from one end of the LVCC complex to another.
The progress of the twin tunnels of the LVCC Loop has been quite rapid, likely thanks to innovations that have been adopted by the Boring Company. Prior to the Las Vegas project, most of the tunneling startup’s experience lay in a test tunnel that was built in Hawthorne, CA. Las Vegas will be the site of the Boring Company’s first transport tunnel system that’s designed for public use.
