Elon Musk's Las Vegas underground project is seeking an extension.

Elon Musk's The Boring Company's $52.5 million underground transit system at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) is seeking the permits necessary to extend its tunneling network throughout the city’s tourism corridor, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The "Vegas Loop" project could link about 50 stations from the Fremont Street Experience and Circa’s Garage Mahal to as far south as Allegiant Stadium. A spur to McCarran International Airport’s terminals also is contemplated.

Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority president and CEO Steve Hill told the Review-Journal that Elon Musk’s tunnel-drilling transit system, which aims to use electric Tesla vehicles operated in self-driving mode, had submitted a special use permit application to the city and is on the verge of submitting a land use design review to Clark County.

Hill did not disclose any cost estimates for system but said resort companies across the city are supportive of the concept. The concept envisioned by the Boring Co. would involve construction of about 15 miles of tunnels in both directions.
