Elon Musk plans to build tunnel to Dodger Stadium

Elon Musk plans to build tunnel to Dodger Stadium

The Boring Company, owned by billionaire Elon Musk, and the city of Los Angeles announced plans to build an underground tunnel to Dodger Stadium to help alleviate traffic problems for fans who travel to games.

Known as the Dugout Loop, the 3.6-mile underground tunnel will connect to either the Los Feliz, East Hollywood and Rampart Village neighborhoods via the LA Metro Red Line.

Proposed routes for the Dugout Loop. After that, The Department of Public Works would need to ensure the route is safe, and the company would then have to secure the necessary permits and city council approval.

Elon Musk has been in hot water recently, after announcing Tesla's purported share price in the event the firm is taken private. The Boring Company says it would be able to transport about 1,400 people per game, pre-selling tickets for trips at an arranged time. The initial documents are available for public review through September 17, and a public meeting will be held at Dodger Stadium on August 28. Still, the point is likely not to remake what game time at Dodger Stadium looks like but to test the physical and operational capabilities of this brand-new subway scheme.

Dubbed the Dugout Loop, the company boasts the proposed high-speed rail will transport up to 16 passengers at a time at speeds as high as 150 miles per hour - all with zero emissions and "zero taxpayer dollars".

Construction would be privately funded.

If the plan is approved, it would take as long as 14 months to build, the company said, though it expects it would be "much less".

The company assures that noise from the tunneling will be basically undetectable from the street, as the tunnel will be 30 feet (9.1 meters) underground and deeper in some places if the tunnel might interfere with city infrastructure.

The projected fare for riders is roughly $1, but that number is not finalized. Rides will be reserved in advance, like a movie theater booking.

The company said it's working with L.A's Bureau of Engineering to start an environmental impact report.

For a fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers, the only thing worse than watching the baseball team lose might be the drive to and from Dodger Stadium.
