The man who brought us Tesla cars and SpaceX has come up with a lofty idea for alleviating L.A. traffic.
Elon Musk is making progress on his plan to build a network of tunnels to carry traffic beneath Los Angeles. It may be a lofty goal that would require lots of permits, but Musk is already posting pictures. Last week he posted a video on Instagram of a sled that would transport vehicles as fast as 125 miles per hour. His new company, Boring Inc., has been digging on his own property near SpaceX HQ. He says he wants the first tunnel to run from Los Angeles International Airport to Culver City, Santa Monica, Westwood and Sherman Oaks. Musk also wants to make digging equipment much more efficient to speed up his ambitious goal.
Can you imagine if this plan came to DC? No more sitting on 495, I-95 or 66 for hours!!!
