The Boring Company has submitted a proposal to build more than 6 miles of tunnels as part of the North Miami beach Loop in Miami, Florida.
The 6.2-mile system would feature seven stations along State Road 826 between the Golden Glades Transit System and Sunny Isles Beach.
The loop system will transport around 7,500 passengers per hour.
When scaled, the loop could accommodate over 15,000 commuters per hour.
Miami Beach is considering the proposal to help reduce traffic congestion, and the system’s total cost is not high compared to other methods of mass transit. The estimated cost is around $185 – $220 million.
As per the North Miami Beach Commissioner Michael Joseph
“We have a lot of traffic congestion, and this would be a way of alleviating a great deal of that traffic,” In addition, he noted that the project is a “fraction of what is seen in other types of mass transit projects proposed in South Florida, while the construction would not be as disruptive to the local economy.”
According to company filings, the project would take less than three years to complete, as long as there is no red tape.
The loop is also capable of expansion. Multiple potential expansions include a 3-mile connection to Hard Rock Stadium. Or there is also an option of a 1.8-mile link to the Florida International University Biscayne Campus.
