So much so that there’s official merchandise for “The Boring Company.” Elon Musk tweeted this yesterday:

In January, Musk’s team began to dug a test trench 30 feet wide, 50 feet long and 15 feet deep at the SpaceX Los Angeles headquarters in the suburb of Hawthorne. The idea is to build a network of tunnels underneath the city that would allow people to travel underground. All this in response to Musk’s frustration with LA traffic:
Traffic is driving me nuts. Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging…

Los Angeles city officials have not as of yet granted Musk permission to dig on public ground. But if he’s going to solve the traffic problem in LA, I say give let him go to town.
