Elon Musk Cleared to Tunnel in Southern California
"Hawthorne leaders have signed off on construction of tech tycoon Elon Musk’s first test tunnel for electric vehicles extending west from SpaceX headquarters," reports Sandy Mazza.
"The City Council approved the two-mile underground track Tuesday night in a 4-1 vote," adds Mazza. Tunneling work could now begin any day.
Mazza's coverage includes details on Musk's grander plans for the Boring Company, and its envisioned connection to the Hyperloop. No mention, however, of how such a substantive infrastructural project managed to navigate the city's planning process, not to mention the state and federal environmental review processes, so quickly.
