Elon Musk's The Boring Company began tunnelling at Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) on November 15, 2019 for the underground people mover. The Boring Machine has been turned on 40 feet below ground, marking the first commercial tunnelling project of The Boring Company. The innovative transportation system will allow convention attendees to be whisked across the LVCC's sprawling 200-acre campus in approximately one minute. The $52.5-million underground people mover will include three passenger stations and connect the existing 3.2-million square feet of convention space with the LVCC's new 1.4-million square-foot West Hall currently under construction, which is part of a $1.52-billion expansion and renovation project. When completed in January 2021, the underground people mover will be comprised of two vehicular tunnels with an expected total length of approximately one mile each. The system will have the potential to expand and link key visitor attractions throughout Las Vegas, including Downtown Las Vegas, Las Vegas Boulevard Resort Corridor, McCarran International Airport and beyond.
