Las Vegas Convention Center Loop ‘substantially complete’ on first day of CES 2021

Elon Musk’s The Boring Company was hoping to unveil their first public tunnel project during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted those plans, with CES now taking place completely online.

That hasn’t stopped work on the tunnels. According to officials with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, the Las Vegas Loop is “substantially complete.”

The project is still expected to be unveiled during the show, with “only finishing touches remaining.”

Construction of the first tunnel began late last year, with construction of the second 4,475ft tunnel completing in May of 2020. The company recently received its first approval to expand its Las Vegas tunnel network, with officials even asking for more stops to be added.

As a sneak peek, the first video of one of the ‘subsurface’ stations on Twitter last month complete with huge LED lights across the entire ceiling.
