The Boring Company’s planned pedestrian tunnel in the City of Kyle, Texas, has hit a wall and is no longer moving forward.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, the city is not moving forward with a plan to dig under Union Pacific railroad tracks near the Plum Creek subdivision.

As per a city spokesperson, Union Pacific did not want the city to dig under the tracks due to concerns over structural integrity.

The tunnel was supposed to connect the newly completed Plumb Creek subdivision with the Kyle Crossing retail hub.

The Kyle pedestrian tunnel was one of the first public infrastructure pieces that the Boring Company would complete.

Kyle approved a $50,000 expense on pre-engineering services to study the tunnel in May.

However, it appears they did not get far, as Union Pacific nixed the idea.

Although the company has met with representatives across the United States, including Austin and San Antonio, no other city has moved.

However, the exception, of course, is Las Vegas.

Where the Boring Company completed the Las Vegas Convention Loop and currently operates a shuttle service.

The company is also moving towards completing an approved 34-mile tunnel network to connect the Las Vegas Convention Loop to the rest of sin city.

The Boring Company did not confirm the reports.
