Elon Musk’s Boring Company submits proposal for stops at Caesars properties

By

Elon Musk’s Boring Company submitted plans to Clark County this week that would connect its Vegas Loop to Caesars Entertainment properties on the Strip.

The tunneling company’s other stops include McCarran International Airport, Allegiant Stadium the Las Vegas Convention Center, and Circa Resort & Casino downtown.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that additional stops include Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood Resort, the Linq, Paris Las Vegas, Bally’s, The Cromwell and Harrah’s.

“The project will provide the quick, environmentally friendly and efficient movement of people within Clark County and its surroundings without disrupting activities occurring above the ground,” Boring said in a justification letter as reported by the Review Journal.

The proposals will be formally presented in February, according to Clark County officials.

So far, Boring has focused most of its resources on connecting the Convention Center’s several halls in a plan called the LVCC Loop.

The company’s ambition to expand to the Strip is certain to face criticism from backers of the Las Vegas Monorail, a 3.9-mile mass transit system which connects the north and south ends of the Strip.

The Las Vegas Monorail Company was recently acquired by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority after it declared bankruptcy earlier in the year. As part of the deal, the Monorail’s noncompete zone was wiped out, paving the way for Boring to expand its system.
