Elon Musk’s Boring Company Tunnel Under Los Angeles may Happen Sooner Than Expected
Newsweek cited comments by Marlon Boarnet of the USC Price School about a possible move by the L.A. City Council to fast-track permitting for Elon Musk’s proposed underground tunnel project.
“This feels rushed. If the city doesn’t grant an exception today, there’s nothing stopping them from granting it three months from now, once they have more information,” Marlon Boarnet, the chair of the USC urban planning department, told the Times before the council voted. “Rescinding something is much more difficult.”
Boarnet worries that implementing the underground tunnel system could obstruct the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s future subway plans.
