https://la.streetsblog.org/2018/04/16/elon-musk-boring-company-test-tunnel-could-get-fast-tracked-blocking-metros-sepulveda-rail-project/ The Boring Company is moving forward with plans for a 2.7-mile proof-of-concept tunnel. The Boring Company tunnel would extend underneath Sepulveda Boulevard from Pico Boulevard in West L.A. to Washington Boulevard in Culver City. The tunnel would go under the elevated Metro Expo Line at the Expo/Sepulveda Station and under the Sepuveda Channel creek in Mar Vista. The city of Los Angeles appears to be fairly eager to support the tunnel. Urbanized reports that last month the city’s Board of Building and Safety Commissioners signed off on the proof-of-concept tunnel. At a meeting this Wednesday, the city council’s Public Works committee will consider a Koretz motion (council file 17-1342-S1) that would declare the tunnel project categorically exempt from environmental studies under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
A bit late, it was approved last Wednesday. It doesn't need to go through CEQA because it doesn't have significant impacts to traffic, air, water or noise.
what the hell are they even building and why would they allow a 3 mile tunnel under LA to get through with no review I swear all this is so musk can just get parts delivered straight to his plant without going through traffic its one thing to joke about digging a tunnel under LA but its got to be done with an actual goal in sight and the concept keeps morphing into basically a subway for rich people
