Elon Musk Reveals His Plans On Tunneling Under L.A.
Elon Musk first mentioned his boring plans in December. “Traffic is driving me nuts. Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging,” he tweeted at the time, adding, “it shall be called ‘The Boring Company.'”
“Boring,” he said, apparently coining a catchphrase, “it’s what we do.”
“Exciting progress on the tunnel front,” Musk tweeted. “Plan to start digging in a month or so.”
“Where will your tunnel be?” a Twitter user asked.
“Starting across from my desk at SpaceX,” he responded. “Crenshaw and the 105 Freeway, which is 5 mins from LAX.” Crenshaw Boulevard is a major north-south street in greater Los Angeles, not far from SpaceX’s headquarters in the suburb of Hawthorne.
After all, Elon Musk, a billionaire innovator, is one of the few people who is just rich, powerful and inventive enough to actually do something about the legendary traffic congestion in Los Angeles. Time will tell
