Since launching the Vegas Loop underneath the Las Vegas Convention Center, The Boring Company has been working to expand the underground tunnels to connect to more than 50 stations across the city.
The first phase of that expansion was to connect to Resorts World Las Vegas on the Vegas Strip. The project reached a milestone with Prufrock-1 emerging at the hotel in February.

Crews have apparently been working hard since then as the tunnel could be operational by April.
Resorts World Las Vegas has told the Nevada Gaming Commission the tunnel could be open in time for the National Association of Broadcasters convention, which is scheduled to be held from April 23-27, 2022, according to Conference & Meetings World.
Las Vegas County unanimously approved the Vegas Loop back in December 2020. The Boring Company is fronting all the costs, meaning the loop requires zero tax dollars or public funds.
When complete the network of underground tunnels will feature 51 stations and be able to accommodate up to 57,000 passengers per hour.
For reference, the current Las Vegas Convention Center Loop transported between 15,000 and 17,000 passengers daily during CES 2022.
