The Boring Company’s twin tunnels for its upcoming Las Vegas Convention Center Loop have been completed. With the buildout of the people-mover system largely unaffected by the outbreak of the coronavirus, the transport tunnels are still expected to be ready for public use in time for the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show.

“We’ve got a growing city and growing tourism base and we need all the options that are reasonably available in order to move folks, so we think all of those different options are important to maintain. And this is just going to be one more really fun one to add to the list,” Steve Hill, the CEO and president of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority said.
