Las Vegas Planning Commission approves Vegas Loop expansion

Las Vegas’s Planning Commission voted 6-0 to expand the Vegas Loop.

The updated route will allow the Boring Company to open the loop to Smith Station, Las Vegas Boulevard, Palace Station and Main Street. Although an initial plan was shared at the meeting, the commission confirmed the finalized station plan would be determined later, per the Las Vegas Sun. Some potential station plans included the Medical District, Symphony Park and Area 15.

Last month Clark County Commissioners approved 18 stations for the Vegas Loop, including one at UNLV. The UNLV stop had one additional hurdle: the university had to go to the Nevada System of High Education’s Board of Regents to approve the land sale. However, that has been authorized, and work is starting at the site.

The Vegas Loop is now approved for 65 miles of tunnels and 69 planned stations. The next step in the process for the Boring Company is to take their updated map and design to the Las Vegas City Council. The city council meeting is set for July 19 and will give the final approval to the project.

For the city of Las Vegas, the Vegas Loop is a great tourist attraction and workable people mover that will make accessing the strip, airport and major event venues much easier. The Boring Company has not provided a cemented timeline for when the extended loop would come into service.

Vegas Loop targets 90,000 passengers per hour for full loop
