Transforming Las Vegas: The Boring Company’s Vegas Loop Vision

A game-changing transportation project connecting iconic landmarks in the heart of Las Vegas.

In a visionary move to revolutionize transportation in Las Vegas, The Boring Company (TBC) has unveiled an ambitious project – the Vegas Loop. This groundbreaking initiative aims to connect key landmarks, making travel in the city more convenient and efficient than ever before.

TBC’s proposal includes a new Vegas Loop tunnel that will seamlessly link the iconic Strat hotel and the bustling Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). This ambitious endeavor recently took a significant step forward as TBC submitted a commercial building permit application to Clark County. According to county records, the proposed tunnel’s estimated value stands at a substantial $2.4 million.

What sets this project apart is its scale and commitment to enhancing connectivity across Las Vegas. The Boring Company has set its sights on expanding the Vegas Loop tunnel system, effectively doubling its size. Upon completion, the Vegas Loop will stretch an impressive 65 miles, featuring 69 stations that extend all the way to the city limits of Las Vegas.

One of the most exciting developments within the Vegas Loop is the tunnel connecting Resorts World and the LVCC Loop. This tunnel began operations last summer and serves as a vital transportation link within the convention center. But TBC isn’t stopping there. They are concurrently working on tunnels leading to Encore and Westgate, both of which will seamlessly integrate with the LVCC Loop, further enhancing accessibility in the area.

TBC’s visionary plans also include the construction of a second tunnel at Encore, Westgate, and Resorts World. This strategic move will provide visitors with convenient access to other resorts and the convention center, streamlining travel within the city.

Steve Hill, the President and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention Visitors Authority, expressed the importance of this project, saying, “We’d also like to complete the second tunnel at Resorts World because that matters. Then the second tunnel to build to Westgate, and then hopefully next summer, we can build a second tunnel to Wynn (Encore). We don’t really want these two directional single tunnels, but you’ve got to build the first one to build the second one. We want to build them both.”

As Las Vegas continues to evolve, TBC’s Vegas Loop stands as a testament to innovation in transportation. With its commitment to connectivity and accessibility, this project has the potential to redefine how we navigate this vibrant city.
